I’m pretty baffled at our country’s lack of common sense over the coronavirus. It seems the reason we are not opening some states is to protect us from ourselves. The goveners have the arduous task of balancing a massive temporary health crisis to the welfare of its citizens.
Then we have the federal government that says “we need to get back to normal.” Did I miss the end of the pandemic while I was taking a nap? I think of it like this; if you have a national population of 340 million people and only 1.5 million are sick you have not reached herd immunity. Then if that said population having no immunity to this new disease gets exposed, you have the potential of 340 million people getting sick or dying. Now subtract the people who won’t get sick. I’m no math wiz but by my calculations there’s still a lot people who are still gonna get sick or die. Remember it’s only been five months since this came here from China.
With 90,000 dead I certainly wouldn’t turn down a miracle. I have asthma and don’t want the last days of my life gasping for my last breath. So please just remember to be considerate of the ones who might actually die. Also thanks to everyone that has to go out, so I can stay home.
