I would say 80% of the members here who were making such arguments have been AWOL for months.
I bet they've since spent a few days in bed with Covid and had a rude awakening

That's not nice - I hope they had an awakening, but hopefully not at the expense of having to deal with covid.

Although you're not the governor, what are the other things they can do?

TBH, at this point I'm out of ideas that make sense and people will actually listen to. I'm just frustrated (as I believe many/most/all people are) with the current situation.

(The cases exploding are not happening due to schools being open so that's why I mentioned that.)

All the travel and movement happening over the past weeks were big contributors but at this point Governors are no longer interested in limiting the movement of people. So we are where we are and unfortunately we're going to have to live with this terrible reality for the foreseeable future.

If they started vaccinating seniors instead of prisoners it will help 10x more than any other measure left on the table. In my opinion seniors should be vaccinated well before 30 year old nurses and first responders, or at the very worst, the same time.

I actually said that they were made
when those arguments haven't been made.



Moving right along.. I apologize for not adhering to your timeline. Let me know when I am allowed to mock each argument, I guess.

BOTH SIDES ARE THE SAME
Yup! Exaggeration and lack of nuance ABSOLUTELY goes both ways! Don't be a mirror image of what you are arguing against!
Feelings don't care about your facts

That was the only part relevant to my point. Now you’re just lying pointlessly.

I totally agree. Maybe you should be nominated for governor or at least director of roll-out of the vaccine (whatever the title would be)  :). We'd be a lot better off than with those good for nothings we have now.

In Israel there is a big spat between the Minister responsible for prisons who is refusing to obey Health ministry bureaucrats directive to vaccinate prisoners and the AG/Government Consul

When the South Florida thread is getting updated as often as the Covid threads it’s a sign the pandemic is over as far as many on DDF are concerned 😀

Did they not learn from last time to not give credance to outrageous predictions? This is why people lose faith in "top health officials"
Just hit 400k. The model was off by less than 20 days. Perhaps you're the one who should 'learn from last time' to believe reality

You just proved my point. If they hadn't used the most ridiculous predictions the first time around, maybe more people would take their predictions seriously.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

But didn’t you call this prediction ridiculous? It was pretty close to accurate.. as were the initial projections used by the White House and most health authorities.
