Silly contrasting both my quotes as a contradiction, when the second one was a qualified contrasting of the first, clearly stated in the first few words.

Once again, your bias shines, oversized sarcasm flag notwithstanding.

Except that I wasn't contrasting anything. Those were two posts along the same continuum.

And yes. Thank you for the compliment. I am glad that my bias of אמונה and בטחון shines.

and at those early stages people were more compliant/careful and what was decreed from above still played out.
A little bit of revisionist history here. It took a good couple weeks for people to start to be compliant, and even then (go back through DDF history, eg the thread about shuls) there was a large portion of the community that just didn't try.

More compliant, I didn’t say how much more.

Your bias uses אמונה and בטחון to downplay השתדלות

True. I recall someone bear-hugging people on Purim 2020 in shul when we were already trying to be careful and he went on ranting about believing in fake news when people asked for some distance.

My father is very medically conservative and was already not going indoors or letting people into his house by then. People thought he was crazy, though if we were all that careful the next few weeks would not have been as tragic as they were.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Fair to say people made up their mind fairly early about this one, which isn’t limited to COVID.

Somehow my instinct was correct about outdoor activity and I took my children to Prospect Park almost every day.

I beg to differ. At least in ch from after Purim till shevous All the Shul’s schools closed voluntarily, even before coumo shut them down. almost no one went out, except for essentials… masks where mandatory in all frum stores…..

How do you catch “severe COVID” from someone asymptomatic?

Animals infected with COVID is nothing new

Who is your question directed at? Most Bloomberg articles have an email address at the end so you can actually direct questions about them (assuming there's an article and not just a "quick take").

Maybe if they were "severely exposed"?

Since when does the degree of symptoms in one carrier have to do with the recipient? The virus is the same, it's the body's reaction that differs.

10%. The headline makes the point of telling you they caught it from asymptomatic people implying there’s a link. There’s nothing in the article that is actually severe by human standards.

I understood the asymptomatic mention as an explanation of why the staff were there, which is also made me doubt that they were truly asymptomatic and not lying about their symptoms.
