Correct it ain’t over yet. It’s like saying the Falcons are gonna win after being up 28-3. We are probably still in the 2nd quarter of this thing. There is a nonzero chance forecasts can go from 50k to 2m as it from 2m to 50k depending on how drastic circumstances change. The hope is there is a balance between getting back to work and making sure hospitals aren’t overwhelmed.

ya lets talk about the undiagnosed and unnderreported cases which proves so many people are asymptomatic that the death rate for this virus for people who get it is alot lower. look the chances of you getting corona virus is not that high. its a 100 percent gaurentee that if the goverment keeps preventing buisnesses from operating people will not be able to feed their kids. it will cause an extreme increase in homelessness. with poverty comes death. we have to way the risks. I am not saying there should be no reguloations but my idea is the best.

you have all the people who can work from home work from home. you pratice social distancing when you can but you have any buisness to be open that wants too. if you dont want to take the risk and you think you might be compromised stay home. open resturaunts and barber shops. I would even let there be restrictions on how many in a restaurant but the point is people would still be able to eat at the restaurant or buisness and let the buisness still function without going belly up.
I dunno about you but I wouldn't want someone cutting my hair from 6 feet away

I have no idea what is going on in Mass but there were 2600 new cases today. We shot up to third in the USA under New York and New Jersey. We are definitely going the wrong way.

Can you imagine watching tv and they say a blizzard is coming but sorry we are not gonna tell you how much snow we are gonna get or wind gusts, not even an estimate. Other than reaching for the Farmer’s almanac, its probably our best option.
The difference is meteorology is a lot more accurate then Dr fauci. Thats what Dr fauci did he said a disease is coming and had no idea how many would get infecteded. Just like a meteorolgist saying a blizzard is coming and guessing on the numbers.
