So, this whole Corona Virus thing is REALLY startin to piss me off. And COVID19 (or Covey, as I like to call it) has proven to be quite the relentless
and extremely stubborn (not so) lil' pandemic. Not only has it taken the lives of many, but it has dramatically altered the lives of so, so many
more. And I'm sure most of you will agree when I say that this whole "new reality" thing really
sucks. I mean, how long is it gonna be before
we get this bugger under some kind of control? Months? Maybe years? And then how much longer until life gets back to, a more or less, pre-pandemic
state? Who frickin' knows, right?! And I really wanna go to a at least a couple more of those old-school, head-bangin, packed in like sardines, type
of concerts before I die. I mean, I'm not quite Joe Biden yet (sorry dems, I couldn't resist), but it won't be long before attending those events
would just be too dangerous. Not to mention, a wee bit awkward. And I want the movie theaters back. I never thought i'd miss those things... but I do.
Oh yeah, and frickin' Disney World!! I want to go to Disney World (not land, it sucks) again. So much of our lives was taken away from us. And then,
everything else we had left, was flipped over onto it's head. All. by. Covey. Frickin' Covey, you sorry SOB.
Okay enough of my rantin n ravin. It's time to take a deep breath... and move forward.
It's time for what you all came for. I will now unveil my "FAIRLY SIMPLE SOLUTION".. (drum roll)...
EVERYBODY STAY HOME FOR 2 (maybe 3) WEEKS
Seriously, think about it. In theory, if everyone stayed home for 2 - 3 weeks, the currently infected could only possibly infect those within their
own household. Then we would have to allow enough time for those cases to run their course and then... viola. Covey is, theoretically, down for the
count. Okay okay. I know that it would not be that easy. There are many, many things which need to factor into this theory of a solution. Here are a
few of the important parts:
Everybody would know the start date well in advance and have plenty of time stock food, supplies and get mentally prepared.
Some super essential workers could go to work. But, really there aren't many of those. A handful of city workers to keep the power on and the water
running who would not have to even come in contact with each other.
We would need doctors and nurses at the hospitals to take care of the really sick or injured. They would hopefully be okay with living at the hospital
for a few weeks. They could set up trailers for living quarters out in the parking lot. Which leads me to my next item.
The ONLY way that you could leave your house would be for a "LIFE OR DEATH" type situation (or broken bones, i guess. but that's it)
We would need patrol officers looking for people trying to sneak around on foot and pulling over anyone and everyone out driving a vehicle.
I'm sure most people would be willing to make the "sacrifice" of roughing it for a couple weeks in exchange for an almost instant return to normalcy.
Heck, if this was done months ago, ol' Covey would be a bad memory by now.
I understand that there will probably be some traces of the virus somewhere and that we may never actually completely wipe it out, but we would
surely have it under control. And by using what we have already learned about the virus, I have no doubt we would be able to keep it under control.
So thats it. My "SIMPLE SOLUTION". I'm sure there are factors i hadn't thought of, but over-all I think it's a pretty solid theory. What do you
Thank you for reading.
