People gathered in the street all summer and only the Sturgis motorcycle rally reportedly spread the virus, possibly because contact tracing wasn't effective at protests as many left their phones at home.
: I agree with a lot of that. Iíve said from early on that this virus was going to expose a lot of Americans as stupid and undisciplined. It has.
: And the issue with Sturgis was overblown in one study, it was worse than the protests because the protesters arenít cramming themselves indoors in bars and restaurants without masks. Plus they were statistically older than most protestors.

When you look at the number of deaths as an indicator, you are using a flawed and completely useless piece of information. Hospitals were directed as follows: If Covid-19 MAY have been a CONTRIBUTING factor into the cause of death, then they were to list it as a cause of death. They also stated that a positive test was not required. In the past, Death Certificates needed to have only proven facts listed as cause of death, so how is it now acceptable to have "maybe" be good enough. Ignorance can also come from overlooking blatant manipulations like this and just shrugging it off. THEY ARE TELLING YOU it doesn't have to be factual, yet you think it is ignorant to not believe it is fact.
Until we get a vaccine: wear a mask, keep social distancing as much as possible, practice good hygiene, and everybody go about your lives. You decide what extra precautions you need to take. This idea that my actions threaten you is a bit much. I mean, I'm not pulling down your mask and french kissing you. Much of the country is doing this already without issues.
