    I think its political. There are 2 sides to this issue, the virus and the economy. Each political side seems to prioritize differently. Both sides are right. It just depends how we want to move forward as a country.

    Essentially what Brewers is saying is true. We need to figure out what protocol to set to allow us to start slowly opening back up. That's the smart way to go about it.

    The big question is do we have leadership capable of figuring that protocol out. The answer is a resounding no.

    So we're kinda stuck in the middle...

    I got no issue with states being given power to re open, but I hope those states understand how to read a graph.

    America didnt and New York paid the price. That should be the last out break in America.

    There’s ways you can keep the economy open and take precaution against this. Keep the elderly people at home (especially the retired people)

    Nursing homes only allow people in if they’ve been tested (15 min rapid testing) or temperatures taken. Allow a time period where they can go to the grocery store. Sometime in the morning.

    Protect the most vulnerable while not destroying the economy.

    Im not saying open up beaches or have concerts and packed stadiums. But there’s a reasonable approach you can take to protect the elderly and keep people working.

    Yeah, my mom is 62 and has had type 1 diabetes and is working from home solely due to the stay at home order. When that order is lifted she will be forced to expose herself, so have a good time ****ing yourself.

I’m not saying open everything up but I think there’s more reasonable steps that can be taken other than shutting down everything

    Its it more widespread than previously thought or not? You are arguing in the other thread that 30% of people have it and are asymptomatic. Instead of hacking it up here, maybe follow a consistent train of thought.

    It’s more contagious but these people really haven’t had any symptoms. It means the mortality rate would be much lower than the projected 2-3% and would be probably under 1%. It would also mean more people could be immune to it for when the second wave hits.

    Brewers this is nothing like the flu (especially from a death rate perspective). We’re two months in on this virus in the US and it would still be getting exponentially worse without the drastic measures.

    That’s what the original models showed, if the lock down did not happen we would be talking about more than 100k deaths.

    Some states that had no stay at home order now have a spike in cases.

    I disagree somewhat with the bolded. Our response to the virus is not what is the real root cause of our economic problems. The system is. The virus is simply highlighting the gaps in our economic system — which if we don’t address as a result of this event, we will face again.

    For example, we have developed an increasingly service heavy economy that more and more relies on part-time or gig work, with relatively fewer empowering resources available to those workers, much less a heath care system that actually functions effectively.

    I do not disagree with the notion that we should proceed, albeit cautiously, towards opening up. But I’d not like to ignore the things we can learn in our desire to do so.

    This is just the beginning.

    Show me where? I know Dr Fucci said we “can” and he believes we “will” make ourselves ready to do this.

    Of course there are ways to keep the economy open and take precaution. Doesn't mean that they are super effective. When a smart plan is laid out by the experts, I'm totally open to going along with it. Having said that, I'd also wait a few weeks beyond whatever the new guidelines are before really going out myself. Would rather not be a beta tester for something like this.

    As with most issues , each side is using this to exploit for political gain.

    I think you have an administration who bungled response because they had no real government experience but I don’t honestly know how much better it could be. Still the troll in chief is more concerned with image than issue and is clearly trying to steer that.

    Meanwhile the other side spend more time focusing on trumps missteps than any solutions that actually help real people.

    And the media love the drama because we all get angry and that means more views for them.

    They’re getting too much attention. Even most republicans polled are hesitant to reopen.

    This is a fringe group of rabble rousers trying to spark something and likely backed by groups with financial interest in reopening.

    Exactly. This “oh we can, let’s start tomorrow” idea doesn’t sound the best

    Jesus christ... the biggest shock I have had teaching college students is how bad they are at looking at graphs... or any visual depiction of data.
