NYS was one of the tightest lockdown states and still had the most deaths. Lockdown did not work.

Eventually 100% of the people would get it because if everyone locked down the world would starve to death.

The lockdowns were supposed to be for a fer weeks. Going on 100 days. With that kind of record they are not working. Time to end them. Small chance of it working against the large chance of a depression. Opening up is the AP move.



Lockdown DID work.

We now have lowest death rate in country while many other states are rising many which opened too early.

My prediction. Many states are going to be on lockdown again by September barring a medical breakthrough. The death rate is just going to keep climbing and climbing exponentially

And you can scream and holler but the lockdowns are making no difference. We cannot keep it up, it will cause a depression, which is a far worse thing.

It's not safe to argue with COVID-19 positive people who won't wear masks. Just go home and save your own life, or bar them at the door.

That didn't answer the question.

Where was it stated.

I heard we were reopening when the curve was turned so we had less deaths and impact on the overcrowded hospitals.

who would put s stupid deadline on that?

Please point to source that said reopening at Easter dated from the beginning of the shutdown

I still don't get it.

for argument's sake, let's assume, social distancing, hand washing and mask-wearing helps. I really have no clue if that really makes a difference or not. That's the protocol I'm following when I go out to casinos and other businesses.

If other people refuse to practice hand washing, social distancing and mask-wearing it hinders me from going out since other people don't seem to respect your space, wear masks and practice hand sanitizing. Therefore it increases my chance of getting infected.

For instance, I'm sitting in the casino and some scruffy looking dude not wearing a mask sits directly next to me asking if he can borrow a dollar. On another occasion I'm paying the parking meter and a group of about 5 non mask-wearing people all decided to stop 2 feet from me to ask directions. I've been to the same few casinos a bunch of times now and not once have I seen them sanitizing any other machines whatsoever. I still haven't noticed anyone using the hand sanitizer stations and very few people are wearing masks.

Lol, a few pages ago percentage of population mattered. Everyone down my throat that you had to go by percentage of population.
