Now here’s an article that says it’s bullshit that kills more people than it helps:
Therefore, we have to look at things through a different lens. Let’s take social distancing and nationwide shutdown – is it ruining our economies neediessly?
- First, it’s all about probability, there are no certainties.
- No matter where it came from, a Chinese lab or innocent market, it’s novel: no humans on the planet have natural resistance
- This means everyone will get it.
- Now it’s a matter of odds – when you get it, will you notice, REALLY notice, get severely sick but recover, or will you die?
- Comparing COVID-19 to a highway, some people say it’s like a highway with LOTS of cars. Some say it’s more like any other street in America – just plain old traffic. What are the odds of getting hit by a car if you play in the street? What are the odds if you stay home?
- How pissed are you going to be if your mother, father, sister and brother all die because of COVID-19 and the government did not enforce social distancing? What if it’s “only” your wife or husband, but the rest survived? Is that worth your Big Mac?
Now, let’s look at what the maps mean.
Here’s the current map from Johns Hopkins as of 4/25/30.
I have a friend who works in university near Berkely. His school was shut down and appropriated by the National Guard into an overflow hospital.
The article says that “Colorado has been hit especially hard by COVID-19” – here is a map of Colorado including Aurora (bottom-right) at the same time as the pictures above – again, barely a speck.
- The United States has a serious problem with metrics, because the size of the “dot” doesn’t scale with eyewitness severity (New York state knows all about that!)
- The government clearly has a bias towards businesses because the fine for Walmart violating every order and taking inappropriate chances with their people only cost them a $5,000 fine. Obviously, when the state shuts down all non-essential businesses, it’s against their own interests and not to be taken lightly.
- Regardless of numbers, the staff in the Aurora store were contagious and stocking the shelves. Every Aurora Walmart shopper has been exposed for many weeks now, and the infection rate is demonstrable (see the whitepaper in previous articles).
