If you want to stay home to ensure you never get into a car accident, that's your choice.

Car accidents contagious now?

ETA: when you're a hazard on the road, they take away your license, too.

yes but it’s not your choice to not stay home when you might have it yourself and give it to others

Kinda makes one wonder, why are we only concerned about people dying from COVID-19 and not everything else? maybe we should just go into permanent lockdown and we can save so many lives every year...

The air is much cleaner too, especially in cities which used to have major smog. Maybe we should permanently shut down industry. :)

At what point were they symptomatic? Asymptomatic? Why did they retest?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Whoever doesn't want to get it should stay home. The same way you can say to stay home to save countless lives every day from car accidents, construction accidents etx
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

just saw this- did it make it to master thread yet?

https://www.thelakewoodscoop.com/news/2020/04/smith-sires-bill-requires-refund-money-for-canceled-air-travel-during-covid-19-pandemic.html

So the airlines will forgo seeking a loan/grant under CARES if this will end up costing them more. Instead they will still need a bailout and will get other money in a future bill that doesn’t have this provision. Same if they take the money and pass some of it on to consumers in the form of a cash refund, they’ll get another bailout if necessary.

No biggie, MSM is already talking about future legislation of another $1trillion!! in the coming months. No biggie, the stock market is booming and the government is going to print itself into oblivion.

Every study that was done, shows that the fatality rate is not nearly what the experts had said.

The fatality rate I saw projected since mid-March was ~.4%. Considering .1% of the entire population of certain hard hit areas are already dead, why would that projection be wrong?
