My local ARCADE here in Florida is staying open but limiting occupancy to ten masked customers and wiping things down every hour,

NY State is trying to develop an anti-body test. It appears that those who have been exposed and are no longer contagious may be allowed back to work in the not so distant future. I'm thinking June 1st but maybe sooner. What I don't get is what the majority of people will do. Those that practiced the guidelines and didn't expose themselves seem to be getting the short end of the stick.



Short end of the stick? LOL. Iím sure some people will go get themselves sick on purpose and risk it, so they can get back to work sooner.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

The responsible ones getting the short end of the stick. Nothing new there. That's been a spiraling downward of society in general.

I have heard this sentiment a few times.

From the accounts of how it hits even the healthy I think most people will regret such a decision.

There are plenty of things we can survive like tooth removal or surgery without anesthesia. If keeping your regular day job (not even a major jackpot just your regular 9-5) was hinged on having your appendix removed SANS anesthesia or any type of pain mitigation would the average person willingly do it so they could get back to work?

I don't believe so. Covid-19 results in feeling like you are drowning for days. Not something I would want to experience just to keep my day job

You can print it as big as you want. That doesnt make it true. Even your fractured fairty tale book you keep quoting is telling you that. You said the British killed 100 million people and then talk about things Columbus did a hundred years before the British first came to the states.
Now, if you said the Spanish, or even the Europeans killed 100 million, I'd still say you were wrong but were at least in the right ballpark.
Keep in mind that most Native tribes in the East choose to fight for the British against Americans both in the Revolution, and again in 1812.



Imgur set the size of the pics automatically. I didnt set the size.

These links were the source for 100 mill and British. I didn't post because i thought it was too judgemental. A scholar david stannard said 100 mil. Scholar henry dobyn said that there may have been 90-112.5 million in the Americas.

I have to assume they are all shooting for May 1. With that said....I don't know how it happens without some acknowledgement from those who shut everything down that we aren't out of the woods and the potential for it blowing up is there. As each day goes by the health concern drops a percentage point and economic concern rises a percentage point.

Where the median is where we say acceptable risk....I do not know. I suspect even the leading infectious disease doctors in a room with economic leaders do not know what's a doable date.
