Perhaps I am confused but wasn't the main point of the lock down to "prolong the pandemic" or using the oft-quoted words, "flatten the curve"? The goal was not so much to reduce the number of persons infected with the virus but, rather, to spread the cases out over a longer period of time so as to not overwhelm the capacity of our medical system. Is "flattening the curve" the same as "prolonging the pandemic"? If so, then perhaps the lock downs accomplished exactly what the goal was.Our coronavirus cases have gone up drastically, 61 Tuesday and 77 Wednesday. 3 quarters of the cases are 30 years old and down. I wasn't expecting this surge. So basically all the lock down did is prolong the pandemic.
Our government should have prevented companies from going to China by higher taxes in the beginning. Yes the world economy is BS. The USA is importing way more than we are exporting in most cases. That's why President Trump has worked hard on better trade deals with other countries.If you really want to punish the Chinese you'll also be punishing the US rich guys. You need to tax all Asian imports high enough that it makes more sense to make the products at home. The "World Economy" that's been sold for the last couple of decades is BS.
China and the rest of Asia didn't steal the jobs. They were moved to the Pacific Rim by US CEO's who wanted cheaper labour with no environmental concerns and are laughing because the general population are blaming the wrong people. China can retaliate financially by dumping US dollars but I think the short term pain would be worth strengthening the home markets.
Just my opinion.
Not really. If you have the antibodies, you were positively some point. So you count as a positive.I'm convinced they are calling "positive for antibodies" as positive for C19. It really muddies the water.
Yes, your right on that. That happened in Amarillo, TX. We had our highest ever new cases yesterday, 140. 109 of those cases are in the age group 0 to 39. 78 of the cases in age group 20 to 29.I'm convinced they are calling "positive for antibodies" as positive for C19. It really muddies the water.
They need to report it as antibodies test or active virus test. They are making it sound like only a active virus count.Not really. If you have the antibodies, you were positively some point. So you count as a positive.
Don’t take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.
