    Right, so we can't say it doesn't work. We can say it's bad to try, but we don't know if it will work or not as far as I know.

    If you look at the data their infection rate cratered for months then it shot up crazy high.

    Just out of curiosity, do you actually think there is mitigation of a new flu virus without a vaccine and therapeutics?

    Before you answer do yourself a favor and do some research on the Spanish flu.

    Facts yo.
    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.
    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.

    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!

    Do some research on the Russian Flu of 1889-90. It is thought to have actually been a Coronavirus and it lasted about 2 years. It was very deadly and wiped out neighborhoods.

    Yeah we can. Unless you think a million plus American deaths is no big deal.

    As to the statement "no medication works", you are incorrect. No medication works every time. Remdesivir works for some people. Hydroxychloroquine works for some people (the Detroit study which was peer reviewed shows that). Dextromethasone works for some. They all have different mechanisms of action against the virus. All are proper in some cases, not in others.
    The reason we are Covid free is because we have all done our jobs properly. We follow isolation procedures and are careful not to bring the virus in. We limit our exposures, although I really can't do that as an EMT. If I am called to a Covid case, all I can do is use my PPE properly (which I always do) and be very careful what I do pre and post call. Sanitation is the key in EMS. We need to be sure the rig is clean and ready for the next call.
    My point? Well I said of course lockdowns work, this isnt up.for debate, look at every single graph of every single city in america. Lockdowns work.

    The surge hit now most likely because of winter. Why their numbers were so low with no lockdowns earlier, I don't know, I assume because everyone moved in a very wary and cautious manner. If everyone in America maneuvered the way you do, we wouldnt need lockdowns here either.

    Yes, I followed that up by saying no medicine works with 100% effectiveness/efficancy. That was my point.

    As I said, Sweden was doing fine all summer. Their case rate is still the lowest in Europe. They never locked anything down.

    I'm simply pointing out several notable examples of states where governors took a lot of action and have had horribly high infection rates.

    That means the governors still did a good job. Not sure why you think the data means otherwise.

    A lot of action to curb covid = right thing was done. Its simple.

    And no, Sweden isn't and hasn't been doing fine.

    In economics we have 'the law of diminishing returns' ....and it most DEFINITELY applies to pandemic response
    I don't know exactly what that point is, but at SOME point, the negative effects of pandemic responses begin to outweigh the positive.

    If one state locks more things down and costs more jobs, businesses, and economic distress than a state that doesn't....yet the end result is similar pandemic stats....which state did the better job?
    gotta love 'referential' treatment
