    And if we open up are we still at risk for the same thing? How are we in a better position to handle Covid now than we were in March?

We're staring more shortages and an economic collapse directly in the face. And people want to set us up to be behind the rest of the world. Solid plan.

    Beds and ventilators, lol. I answered your question. The "cure" was never coming in a mere couple of months. We'll develop a vaccine at some point but I'm sure this thing will continue to kill people for years.

    We have a new virus.

    COVID-19 Response: An issue that shouldn't be at all political....yet here we are

    I would hope hospitals are better at treating it, that supple lines are better, that individuals know more and can do what they need to in a more responsible manner, that stores are have more knowledge and are more prepared to take precautions, we definitely have a much greater testing capacity. I think a better question would be why would you assume experience is not a teacher? Practice makes prefect and reps are always good. We could be more prepared at this point but we are clearly better prepared then we were in Feb

    Yes, that initial fear is still in play, that's why everyone is being cautious as to how they get the economy going again.

    Beds and ventilators aren’t the fix. Knowing who has the disease is the fix at least until we have a vaccine. If we could massively test people we could open up with some confidence that we aren’t gonna see a big surge.

    I’m not sure that they are significantly better. A little more prepared with more vents and a little more PPE (still wearing one N95 for a week at a time instead of one per patient). We’ve learned some new symptoms. All great for slightly mitigating the damage after people are sick. How do we stop people from getting sick and spreading it in the first place. That’s what we need to keep businesses open.

    Theoretically if we could test everyone on a daily basis, get immediate results, we could isolate it.

    Don't get your hopes up, it ain't happening.

    In all seriousness, I agree we need to start opening up the economy at some point soon. But it should be done in a phased approach based on health experts recommendations. Another 3 months of this seems excessive to me.

    But you didn’t even want us to shut down in the first place and you complained about it the entire time. It’s not like you’re suddenly advocating for us to open up, you never wanted us to close to begin with.


    Basically, my point is how frightening your callousness towards mass death of Americans is. Conservatives like you have been screaming “America first!” and talking about how we need to protect our own, and now we are doing that and you’re now yelling “let them die”.

    At the very least, I’m never going to take your concern for fellow Americans safety very seriously ever again.
    Total bs. I referenced Sweden not shutting down as a reason why we could open up. Never denied the possibility of our hospitals being overwhelmed. Guess what, we're over that...

    Get off your high horse.

    Btw, I'm not a conservative. More of a libertarian, pot smoking atheist.
