Is This Your Reaction to COVID-19?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The man in Frontenac, MO who broke quarantine to take his daughter to a father-daughter dance has stated that he did not learn of the COVID-19 diagnosis until he was at the dance. He did know that the family had been told to self-quarantine pending the lab results.

JetBlue plane and a concourse at Palm Beach International Airport were being scrubbed down Thursday morning after a flight from New York landed Wednesday night carrying a passenger who’d been infected with coronavirus, the airport confirmed.

and then, there is this brain trust:

What do these stories have in common? Stupidity. The same stupidity that the majority of the country is showing who do not believe we are in the midst of a pandemic. People who ignore facts and promote this pandemic as a hoax or compare it to the common flu are flat out dangerous. Why? Because these stories and attacks are commonplace and their logic will cause people to die.

How? Ignorance. And their fear that the government will overstep their “authority” to address the spread of the virus. Consider the methods used in Hong Kong which were effective:

  1. They shut down the border crossing to China.
  2. They told their people to wear masks.
  3. They told their people to wash their hands.
  4. The self-quarantine worked to limit the spread of the contagion.

But these simple methods will not work in the United States. Because people know better. I cannot believe someone commenting here that a mathematical formula was stirring the pot. I cannot believe that people would rather save the economy than millions of lives. I cannot believe that limiting freedom is not worth the price of human lives in a crisis. You want the truth: your fear of losing security, money and/or the status of a political party is just plain shameful. It is a symbol of the country’s lack of vigilance which allowed the government to control our lives. If we had earned Liberty as our forefathers had, we would not have to fear what the government would do with perceived power.

Do I want to give up freedom? No. And I would not have to if the people were not being misled in this country by political ideologues, greed and ignorance. The price of Liberty is public virtue; something which we lost and are paying a high price for.

Is this fearmongering:

The leading U.S. infectious-disease official said the testing system in the country is failing.

Dr. Fauci

You want another example? How about the “don’t test, don’t tell” testing policy from the CDC. You can’t have a pandemic if you do not test for it. So what is the reality?

  1. 40-80% of the population will be infected.
  2. Depending on the strain of the virus and the amount of care available, the mortality rate will fluctuate between 1 and 6.7%. This means an overwhelming majority of people will survive the first round of infections.
  3. Without effective quarantines, our medical system will be overwhelmed just as in Italy which has the 2nd highest healthcare system in the world.
  4. We will have civil unrest as this spreads. Why? Because of the “rights” of the people to be free. Even in the case of a national emergency where this “right” will have bad consequences.

We cannot yell fire in a crowded venue without consequences. I don’t hear anyone questioning this limitation of the first amendment. Why? Because it is common sense. But common sense has little value when fear, ignorance, greed and political expediency are given free rein.

I pray to God that He delivers us from this virus and from ignorant people.

      Here is a better article.

      Don’t support martial law and the subjugation of constitutional liberties no matter what rationale the establishment gives. They were the people that dismissed the pandemic threat for at least two months, they are not to be trusted now. Finally, understand that survival is a means to an end, it is not the only goal. The job of maintaining the principles of freedom for future generations falls on our shoulders now. This is far more important than mere survival.
