Sorry to hear that your grandmother is in bad shape. I hope she makes it.
I am not against social distancing, but don't think that we should further destroy our economy because of this disease.
It is very contageous and most of us will get this disease, it is either now later. We are now more prepared to fight this.
A lot of people will die from this disease, but from what I see in nursing homes, there is no stopping the spread of this disease. It sucks but it is
reality. The worst part is that your grandma will have to die among strangers. I would not want that myself, that is why I won't go to the hospital
if I get sick. That is why I am researching this disease and taking steps to deter it's ability to replicate in my body. I am sixty four, I would
rather get this disease now that I am not on any meds and get immunity than when I am five years older and am in worse shape to fight it off.
I do not want to see my offspring lose everything just to protect me from a virus. I did not work all my life and bring them up and help them out to
have them lose everything just because they were worried I might possibly get covid 19
Chances is your grandma got the virus from a person who is working in the medical field, I am hoping they get enough tests to test medical workers and
am all for the medical workers sheltering in place, and society should respect the loss of freedom of those medical people and try to support them
when on and off the job. Evidently there are some home health workers that have spread the disease unknowingly, even though they did not realize they
had the illness. I heard someone talking about that happening down in the area where their parents live in Wisconsin. Those home health workers are
doing a necessary job sometimes, but sometimes what they are doing is not necessary, that should be a consideration they need to look at. They even
had the physical therapy places open here during the lockdown, they were not required to stop anything at first. I just drove by the place last week
and the lights were on, but I do not know if there were patients in there. I do know that home health is up and running here though, but the workers
have strict social rules.
I know some people who had home health and they cancelled their home health, it was far from necessary.
