Out of 10 million participants, there were only 300 asymptotic cases and none passed the virus on to anyone else. Basically meaning that if you aren’t sick, there is 0% worry that you are passing it to anyone else. For this to be accurate we have to trust scientists and studies coming out of China, which is certainly not a given.
I’m hopeful that sometime around the, let’s say, 21st of next month, lockdowns (that haven’t worked anywhere) can stop and we can get back to normal. I’m hopeful they don’t do another big fake lockdown for PR reasons and then in the summer claim they beat it. Not because I care about the new team getting credit, but because that means 6 more months of lost business and destroyed lives for no reason.
And just to be clear for future reference:
I believe the virus is real and very dangerous for people over 70.
I think people that are high risk should be wearing a mask at all times for the rest of their lives if they are worried about COVID because you never know what you might catch.
I think that if you are under 70 and are feeling even a little bit “off” or that you are “coming down with something”, that you should avoid people (especially old people) and wear a mask.
I believe that the virus could be just as present walking to your table in a restaurant as it would be with you sitting down at a restaurant and that lockdowns are just for show.
I believe that lockdowns haven’t worked at all [insert case numbers and deaths from Europe, California, and New York here].
