Sorry, but I consider deaths the single most important stat.
Regarding this virus and a public health perspective, it is not. That's not to say it's not important, but it is not the biggest concern. Again, hospitalizations and more specifically, overwhelming ICU beds, is the stat that matters.

Look at it like this, in a mass casualty incident, the first concern of responders isn't the dead, it's ensuring the resources that are available are spent on those with the highest likelihood of survival.

Yes I understand the theory, but there's just no evidence that that is happen in large numbers at this time.

It's not like those young people are being forced into nursing homes in FL, TX and AZ. I mean, who would be stupid to order such a thing??
Public health workers and government officials in cities in FL, TX, SC, AZ and many other areas in a number of states where recent spikes have happened are concerned enough at the possibility that they are putting mask requirement orders back on the table.

I've never worked at such places so I honestly don't know. However, I don't think there are lot amounts of people vehemently opposed to wearing shirts and shoes. There are, however, large numbers of people who aren't wearing masks.
And I would bet that those most opposed have the least understanding of the need to wear them. And I also bet that id Trump stressed the importance and wore one himself, it would reduce those that currently resist. It might, however, cause those that oppose Trump to stop wearing theirs, so it's almost a no win situation.

Weird how all the people who scream about opening the economy also refuse to take any of the steps that enable it

I disagree. Suppose, for example, we had just as many Covid cases but only 10,000 dead. Don't you think we would have dramatically different policies in place?

I am not talking about an on-scene triage, I am talking about how societal public policy should proceed. Things like holding sporting events, if fans can go to the aforementioned sporting events, whether or not bars should be open.

Yes, it is the usual amount of politicians who are desperate to make it look like they are doing something to address the problem.

Same hospitalization rates? If yes, then same policies in place.

Until the masses are reliably social distancing and wearing masks, they can’t be trusted. The recent spikes bear that out.

I don’t disagree however we are probably split on who is included in this group.

The liberal haven of Alabama having idiots educated in their system. Shocking

The chief epidemiologist at Mt. Sinai estimates that 5-15% of Covid infected will come down with syndromes like dysautonomia.

These kids in Alabama love college football. Let's say the virus rips through the team (like it did at Clemson) and infects half the players (50 of them). That will mean about 5 of them will develop syndromes that totally debilitate them and prevent them from playing, for a time. Some, it will debilitate them for the rest of their lives.

Look up dysautonomia. It is not something you want.

Back in November, I traveled to rural China and hung out with several bats and monkeys. I then returned to the United States and soon everyone around me got sick. Do you think I might have caused this outbreak?
