The adult who funded the device can take it away any time. Social media misuse by minors is not that hard to solve.

Hard to argue with results.

Also, it’s amusing coming from someone who is one step from arguing capital punishment for not wearing a mask or socializing in another thread. You can’t pick and choose which Jews you turn in in the reich. That would make you a hypocrite, no? They all must be punished equally in your modern Reign of Terror, even you and yours. Tread lightly...

How it Spreads
Have you actually seen people with masks on? They adjust them about five times a minute. Each time TOUCHING their face. That is how it is also spread. Touching your face is just as big an issue as wearing the stupid mask. The key is simply to avoid humans. Without interaction with other humans you 100% cannot catch it. When it's hot out people wipe their face with their hands. Every person can wear a mask and it is still going to have people do this.

The solution is a vaccine. In the meantime don't go near other people.

Unfortunately, that’s what everyone is expecting. But developing a good vaccine takes YEARS, not months. Skipping significant steps that are usually required for efficacy and safety testing should make anyone wary about this being a viable solution anytime soon. It’s just another carrot to dangle in front of our faces to keep us being compliant a little longer.

A good treatment is more likely to be the solution than a vaccine, as of right now. At least in the near term. The good news is, we’re getting better and better at managing and treating the disease of those who are infected. So while the morbidity rate is relatively high, the mortality rate seems to be trending down. Which is why this whole closing back down crap is so perplexing...

Try it and city will find itself quickly in court. There is no law that says one must wear a mask, it's health advisory. Also city such as WH, BH, SM etc are not enforcing the mask requirement. BH announced it a while back and yet no one have gotten it. It's all talk and no walk. No police going to become mask police.

I reluctantly agree about that, but the opinion article is a positive step because the author identifies public misbehavior and weak leadership as the problems and some readers (probably without really doing their own thinking) will start to realize that.


[and a different, hostile person wrote]
"Which is why this whole closing back down crap is so perplexing..."

No, not perplexing. Obviously part of it is to get the public's attention and create a fear mindset. Maybe also to condition the public to accept more onerous restrictions (a step likely in the near future is the closure of liquor stores). However, it's not nuanced enough, is too economically damaging, and won't stop the many morons and malcontents (see above) who know they can get away with bad behavior. It's a cheap shortcut that most likely will avert a healthcare system collapse, but it doesn't address what the government knows is a big problem (hence the ongoing lecturing from politicians) and maybe thinks is too complicated and risky to confront, getting into people's private behaviors and social wants/needs and the very politically incorrect fact that an ethnic group that often is here illegally is one of the groups most willfully responsible for ongoing spread. The government is wrong. My way is right, turn the public against bad apples and cow centrists into compliance, a light reign of terror isn't fun but history shows it can work for a long, long time if necessary, as in traditional big-city policing that keeps crimes out of the nicer regions.

I doubt that the percentage of kids under 18 who are spreading this is very high. And beyond that age, parents have no right to check their kids' cell phones.

One bar's shocking way to keep customers at a safe distance: An electric fence
Quote:
A pub in the United Kingdom has a shocking way to enforce social distancing guidelines.

The Star Inn in Cornwall put up an electric fence used to restrict livestock near its bar counter to help keep patrons at a safe distance from bartenders.

The pub's owner, Johnny McFadden, who is also a farmer, decided to install the electric fencing to keep his employees safe, the South West News Service reported.

"Before the fence, people were not following social-distancing and were doing as they pleased, but now people take heed to the guidance around social distancing," McFadden told Cornwall Live.

McFadden told SWNS the fence is usually switched off but could be turned on if things get out of hand.

"It's just a deterrent, but hopefully the sight of it will help keep people away. That's how it works with cattle too, animals see it and often don't want to test it," Joel Carne-Mead, who works at the bar, told the news agency.
