: : We have no hope in California as our political structure is built on the people needing government. This political structure is dominant as the sheep in our state are on auto-pilot, they can't think for themselves. This situation is a tell all, because the lock down affects everyone and everyone is sitting back and taking it. If you are scared of the virus and don't have some pre-existing condition that puts you at higher risk, then you are sadly misinformed about it's potential impact on your health. Our kids are pawns in a power game. D's and R's need to put down their bullshit political banners, unite, and oust these political misfits. Most Californians want the same things. Don't let the political party you think cares about you corrupt your common sense, your decency, and your responsibility to be a good neighbor.
: :These stats come from an 8 month sample size. What more do you want? Again, it is a fact that there is a 99% chance of survival from coronavirus for people 65 years or younger. And it is a fact that you have less than a 2% chance of even catching coronavirus in CA if you are 65 years or younger. These numbers do NOT support kids not being able to go to school or being able to participate in organized athletics. The "coronavirus" affect on our kids for decades to come will be a far bigger problem than what is being experienced now. Kids are now programmed with fear and just revert back to a "safe place" of more screen time.
*8 month sample size with only one month in flu season (the initial month).
Saying people over 65 have just a 2% chance of catching it is true ONLY if those people continue the behavior they adhered to in March (CA shut down before another NYC could happen). The behavior exhibited over the summer would cause a massive outbreak in the winter, it's already happening in LA County after those ridiculous Armenian marches.
"If you are scared of the virus and don't have some pre-existing condition that puts you at higher risk, then you are sadly misinformed about it's potential impact on your health."
No one healthy should be afraid of it, but rather should be scared of spreading it to others. It would be like some people in London during the blitz not obeying the blackout, because they put all their stuff in the cellar and their houses were tear-downs anyway. But, they leave their fireplace burning because they don't want their house to get cold, or their cat to be left in the dark. Even though they don't care about their own house being bombed, the Luftwaffe will be able to bomb the surrounding area with more precision. If enough houses have fireplaces running, the pilots may be able to triangulate some more important targets.
Lastly, both conservative and liberal-run countries have enacted lockdowns, this is not limited to the USA, it's not some political creation.
