    OK, here is my philosophical question.
    You have two choices, that's it. You have to pick answer 1 or answer 2

    1-Covid rips through the country and claims many lives, it slows and we find a vaccine in the fall but the original numbers feared will come true and hundreds of thousands die. The economy is in trouble. Biden wins

    2- The virus slows. A vaccine is created. The economy slowly recovers and regains its form. Trump stays president.



    I pick 2

    But what if, Covid rips through the country and claims many lives, it slows and we find a vaccine in the fall but the original numbers feared will come true and hundreds of thousands die. The economy is in trouble. Trump is re-elected!

    I wonder how long the quarantine will actually last. I really can't see majority of the public agreeing to a stay at home order for much longer than maybe 3 months or so. Zero chance people are content just chilling for 6 months + imo.

    Every day since April 4 (34,196 new cases) the new case number has been lower than that. So we're at almost a week straight of fewer than that peak number. The numbers still aren't great, but the fact that they aren't still climbing the way they were has to be a good sign.
    Also, daily deaths have gone slightly down over the past 3 days.

    I think we need at least another month. I still think after that, people need to be really smart. There should be no venues where people have to be within 6 feet of each other. It may sound extreme but come the fall, I think it returns. If it is not eradicated and only those who've had it have immunity,, it won't stop until there is a vaccine or everyone has gotten it.

    The numbers and hopefully the science will dictate.

    A month I could do. But eventually I'm going to need to go back to work. As will millions of others. I'm still fortunate to be getting paid while off, at least thru next week, then I have about 3 weeks of PTO I can use. Can probably make that last 5 weeks or so by using 30 hrs a week. But eventually gonna need to actually go and do my job. Both for money and my sanity.

    Never!
    But there is a difference between, "not really smart" and "completely ****ing stupid".

    The flu is part of everyday life. They have vaccines for it but not everyone gets them and it doesnt cover every strain even when you do. The corona virus is much more dangerous. 3% is a very high rate and the only reason why 100s of thousands of people are not going to die from this is because there isnt enough available testing to know the severity of its spread and the fact that people are observing social distancing and staying home.

    That trend has to continue though. We cant just take that good news about the slowing of the virus and all of a sudden go back to normal life.
