HONESTLY, THE PROBLEM IS NOT EVEN THAT WE’RE PANICKING. IT’S THAT WE’RE PANICKING ON PRACTICALLY NOTHING BUT SURMISES AND WHISPERS. FOR INSTANCE, GIVEN THAT INCUBATION CAN BE UP TO 30 DAYS, AND THAT MOST CASES HAVE NO SYMPTOMS AT ALL, LET ALONE THAT CHINA TRIED TO HIDE IT, WHAT MAKES YOU THINK BY THE TIME WE STOPPED FLIGHTS IT WASN’T ALREADY ALL OVER? The big danger of coronavirus is that we panic ourselves into a greater crisis.
For instance, do you understand that we actually have no idea how many people are infected, because there are very few tests? And btw, to all the lefties screaming there are few tests because we need more centralized control: PFUI.
So, we actually have no idea. For all we know, that really bad cold everyone has had, the one that keeps coming back? Might very well be it.
In which case what we SHOULD be doing is NOT containment and isolation. It’s preparing to look after the truly vulnerable who will be hit by this: people who are health-compromised and the elderly. Because those are the ones who are in danger.
Locking the barn door after the horse has fled AND driving down the economy is NOT actually going to help anyone. Well, except maybe the democrats, but I think they’re beyond help.
