I'm staying home for the foreseeable future. My son was tested after his girlfriend (whom he lives with) found out that someone she works with tested positive. They're both under quarantine until the test results come back. But by all means, go out and be sure to hit multiple places so you get this disease and in turn infect as many people as possible. It's going to be a very long summer.

Isn't that what you were doing already? Has anything changed?

From a biomedical scientist:

When holiday revelers were asked on camera why they were out and about as normal over the weekend, the usual answers were some variation of “The cure is worse than the disease” or “The infection is rarely lethal, less than 1%.”

Do these people remember that so far nearly 100,000 Americans have died? And that figure doesn’t even count the seriously ill. About 20% of those who get the virus get very, very sick. When you ask those survivors to talk about what they went through, it’s an alarming picture.

They describe exquisite pain while acutely ill and long-term consequences after the virus has run its course. Some will be on kidney dialysis for the rest of their lives. Some of the young children who caught the virus will have permanently weakened hearts. And, weeks after recovering, many who had the virus are still having trouble catching their breath and recovering their energy.

To be fair, they weren't wrong (or haven't been wrong so far). 100,000 is much less than 1% of Americans. It's about 0.03%. You had better odds of being struck by lightning in the last three months.

By wearing one, all you're doing is showing other people that you're taking Covid-19 seriously and that you respect them enough to show caution.

I don't get this strange rebellion against being courteous?
There are many buttheads in the world.
