I really don't understand why people are ignoring the 6-foot rule. Honestly, social distancing makes since even when we aren't in the middle of a pandemic. I work in a large healthcare system. People just aren't listening.
I agree and MI, where I am, is accelerating past NY is the growing number of confirmed cases. I have been working from home for two weeks and staying in but had to run to the office today to drop some paperwork on my desk for someone going in tomorrow, No one was there except me for that 2 minutes. . However, on the way home I noticed the Walmart and Sams Club parking lots were packed with cars, Absolutely no way all those people are staying 6' apart.
I also agree. People are not taking this serious enough. Some folks think they are special and the rules don't apply to them. They go out for fast food take out, drop by their place of work for non critical purposes, run to the liquor store, go out of their home to take pictures of ships and selfishly risk spreading the infection......wake up.
I don’t know what to say. You’ve got it right, lowtide. The peak in NYC hasn’t even hit yet, let alone the rest of the country.
I don’t know what the mentality is on this board, normalcy bias maybe?
No one here wants to listen to science or math. We’ve got states bidding against each other to buy PPE. The DPA invocation will take at least 3-4 weeks before we get a single ventilator produced.
The department of labor is talking about 70 million unemployed by the end of April.
And the scariest part of all of this is that you’ll just call me chicken little and move on. Tim just this morning was saying he hopes rental houses open by May.
I don’t want to incite fear or panic, that won’t help anyone. I’ve already been asked via PM to not share the front line stories of the hospitals in NYC.
Look, I get it. This stuff is scary. Digging your head in the sand and screaming fake news won’t make this go away. SARS-COV-2 doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor. It doesn’t care if you’re a Republican or a Democrat, black or white, or any other metric you can measure.
We are all in grave danger, and the only thing we can do right now to protect ourselves is to stay home.
