Quoted from zr11990:
They should and I hope they win. You can’t shut down businesses which are people’s bread and butter for a virus. Especially one with a 98% recovery rate.
We've already gone over this. Lung transplants are considered "recovered". As are people with long-term lingering conditions, lung scarring, heart damage, etc.
We don't have all of the data on this disease yet.
Broad brush "dead or not dead" statistics are not the kind of assurances most Americans want right now. But hey... we could use this opportunity to detour into the psychology of what makes state lotteries such financial cash cows despite the overwhelmingly negative odds.
Yet, people play by the millions anyway. We freedom-loving, high-hoping Americans just want what we want. Perhaps a bit too much.
Agreed though - I'd like to see more consistency in the way the restrictions have been imposed. We have enough scientific knowledge at this point to certify rooms for minimum levels of airflow and filtration at the very least. Don't shut down businesses which are legitimately keeping people safe and insisting upon mask use.
