Every meme is either "why are we quarantined" or "why is everything opening back up"
@AverageIdiot, so... morons wanting to get haircuts and the cognitive portion of humanity that understands the gravity of the situation?
@Chifilo, I like the quarantine. Not because of Corona but because of cheap gas and no traffic. But then again I'm working so I can't speak for all. It's whatever I guess
@meNoP, a lot of road improvement projects are getting done ahead of time in my area while there's so little traffic to worry about, including some slated for next year.
@AJMalone, funny, they started about three dozen new ones in my town and none of them are getting done
@Chifilo, oh for fûck’s sake. Please keep quiet and let the adults discuss the ramifications of SIP and opening up safely.
A lot of those deaths weren't even from covid. Hospitals get more government money the more deaths they have from covid.
I know this because I work in a hospital and it's seriously making me want to quit.
@Unoriginal, ain’t capitalism just grand?? 🙄
@Chifilo, being that they’re getting the money from the government i wouldnt call that capitalism
@dr brain, capitalism is literally anything that has to deal with money. Get your head out of your hole and wake the Frick up
@Chifilo, capitalism is literally the opposite of what was said, it's where trade and industry are controlled by private owners, not the government... Google is your friend.
@Chifilo, it is. But government funded programs is a mark of socialism not capitalism
@Chifilo, that is literally the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen on this app. Which is actually pretty impressive. I’m impressed.
Here’s a tip... “capitalism” is another term for “free market economics” which is the free exchange of goods and services. “Socialism” is the form of economics where the “government” owns the means of production and gets to determine who gets what.
@Chifilo, I have never seen somebody so adamant about being wrong.
Im cool with that. Just open the beaches already! I dont go to the beach snuggle up on strangers. I go there to surf and relax in nature, away from others. Its not hard to social distance at the beach.
@biolojist, oh year, i mean the worst you can get is fibrosis lung which reduce your character stamina permanently. Or death.
But Yolo! Its beach time.
@biolojist, they closed beaches where I am but not surf or water access just cant be congregating in masses. Most surfers dont try to sit on top of eachother in the lineup anyway unless you are kind of a dick it's more fastest in the lineup or best position.
@Chick33n, probably got a better chance of being eaten by a shark.
The CDC, as of May 1st 2020, has only 2,965 for ages for the ages of 0-54 and only raises an additional 4,688 deaths if you include the 54-64 age bracket. So all things considered the odds are very much in your favor if you are below the age of 60.
@Policeiu, source: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid_weekly/index.htm
@Policeiu, are those facts? Ha! Fvcking nerd.
@Policeiu, also those deaths I cited were only from covid 19. The deaths this year for "deaths with pneumonia, influenza, or covid 19" currently is at 44,316 for the age bracket of 0-54
@Policeiu, it's more dangerous to drive than dying from covid19 if you are young and healthy
@Policeiu, it's not about whether or not us healthy people will survive (which many healthy people have died already), it is about catching it and spreading it to more vulnerable people. It's even worse with how contagious it is and the fact it spreads asymptomatically. So yea. I'm 22. I could out and probably be mostly fine. But if I accidentally catch Covid, and spread it to my older parents, they may not fair as well. Some people might be ok with others needlessly dying, but I'm not. If u can think of family members u dont mind getting covid and then dying great. I do not want any of my family to die from this. I'm not personally targeting you but your logic is used by many who are somewhat indifferent to all this and it's annoying as fvck.
@Basil Fawlty, the reason for my my initial comments concerning the numbers isn't to minimize the danger to certain groups. If anything I would say it highlights the higher risk for those people. The reason for the comment is that many people say that reopening is a bad thing, such as the meme, but if you don't live or go see people on those risk groups your danger is extremely low. My family and I aren't going to see certain relatives for this reason. But also keeping states completely closed won't help either since it is so infectious.
@Policeiu, even if it doesn’t kill you, it can mess up your lungs or increase risk of dying from a stroke
@Cpzombie, yea but mainly if you have a pre-existing condition or are just one of those 1 in a million cases. I think a partial lockdown of people in risk groups with be the best option. You could also say the same thing about any pneumonia or influenza case.
@Cpzombie, also i think people need to be aware of the increased risk but i wrote my original comment because i feel memes like that are funny but can mislead that the threat is more widespread than it is.
@Policeiu, did you read on that page where it says it’s provisional, and can be several weeks behind? And you get that people with pneumonia and Covid get pneumonia because of the Covid, right?
@Toad, that is why i included the second comment about those deaths. Also states are constantly changing numbers but the trend with the changes is fewer deaths to total infected.
@Policeiu, one flaw is that those numbers are lower because there's a variable being the fact we have been quarantined for 2 months. It's hard to say how much those numbers will increase once everything is opened. I'm sure most people will be cautious and be smart as we reopen things slowly but there's a lot of dumb people who don't wear masks or anything still.
@Basil Fawlty, I don’t think you understand the nature of the virus and how contagious it is. The point of isolation was to flatten the curve so the hospital systems do not get overwhelmed early on. Mission accomplished. If you’re concern is “giving it to grandma” then we’re all screwed. We will never be able to go to work again. We will spend the rest of our lives in solitary confinement and the world economy will crumble and billions of people will starve to death.
If this sounds hyperbolic, good. So is we need to stay home so we don’t pass the virus to grandma.
@Policeiu, that in a week. Notice how it says weekly index. 44,000 deaths you said this year from flu, pneumonia, and covid, which is about 2,400 deaths per week from those three combined, for the entire year to date.
@griffinstorme, the period of the deaths is February 1st to May 2nd according to the chart title "week ending 2/1/2020 to 5/2/2020" the overall report is a weekly roundup of collected date not the data for the week alone. the point of the initial comment and follow up comments is to highlight the fact that many people dont need to worry since the chance are so low. also the 44000 deaths includes influenza and pneumonia both of which dont contribute to the pandemic mean 44,000 deaths is a very liberal number since it includes things not from.the current pandemic.
About half of all cases in the US are in the New York metro area because it’s a shïthole, and about half of all covid 19 deaths in the US are in nursing homes. Go back to work, take extra precautions, don’t visit your elderly family members unless it’s an emergency, you’ll be fine
@RepostSniper, nah... arbitrary decisions by authoritarian governors is the way to go!
Lol MAY the odds.......I’m sorry.
Sort of. Well, I mean you could still just stay home.
@A Deformed Penis, more freedom and choices, yes please.
Surprised no one has mentioned yet how incorrectly quoted this statement is. I’m slightly bothered. Only slightly.
Also. This true af. 😂
Isn’t that how republicans have been about life as a whole anyway...? “Don’t have good chances? Oh-fvcking-well 🤷♂️ we get to decrease the surplus population!”
@Chifilo, you missed a key part where no one gets in your way if you wanna start a business and get rich. But yeah if you just wanna work a low effort min wage job you can be poor your whole life
@Chifilo, look kid... just go away. You’re in way over your depth here.
@Chifilo, aren't the people wanting to take care of " Surplus populations" the dems? Praising China's one child policy, abortions on every street corner of black neighborhoods, trying to pull hard working Mexican men away from their families so they'll be traped as slaves to their corporate overlords, the promotional chemically castrating children after teachers of brainwashed them to saying yes a single time. Reps want to make more people, dems want to control the chattel by thinning the herd.
