    Without the extreme C-19 covid safety measures that many would have died from C-19 - alone - this year, already, in much less than a year.

    IOW if treated like "just a flu", as you have so very wrongly alleged C-19 is.

    Why is that? You think you know more than the health experts? If you were in charge the results would've been 10 times worse.

    What is obviously clear is that as a result of lockdowns:

    1) serious vehicular accidents & deaths are way way down
    2) flu deaths & serious complications have decreased tremendously
    3) C-19 ill health & deaths are far less due to the lockdowns
    4) likewise probably other communicable diseases (e.g. tuberculosis, HIV) have been greatly reduced by the extreme safety measures in place
    5) street crimes have probably been highly reduced.
    6) families have been able to spend more time together enjoying each others company while free from the slavery of that 4 letter word "work" that the vast majority hate. Giving more time for quality of life activities like sex & various entertainments.
    7) abortions (child murder) are probably down.

    Plenty has been said about that already for many years. At least he's only killing himself, & not for many years, not murdering someone else with his habit as covidiots do with their C-19 infection, murdering others who die in a few weeks (not decades like eating junk food). Think.

    And if extreme safety measures were not in place C-19 may be the leading cause of death in the USA. As it stands it was still number 3 recently.

    Wrong. The chance of a person dying this year in a car accident are less than dying this year from C-19.

    Especially this year during lockdowns when the roads were almost empty of metal death traps.

    I'm with most of you guys. Don't think things should be locked down. Don't think everybody should always be wearing masks. I eat out all the time in PA (state with a pussy governor). It's beyond idiotic that nobody seated is wearing a mask but in the 10 secs it takes to walk out the door you need to wear mask. If you are high risk stay home , stay safe, let college kids and the healthy do whatever they want. The high risk can stay away from their younger family members if they are concerned until vaccine comes.

    All that being said. X-Files does keeps making one point that he is right about that nobody will acknowledge or give credit . If not for a decent chunk of the population locking down, social distancing, mask wearing, extra sanitizing, etc etc the deaths would be easily over a million. Thats in less then a year. And thats a significant amount.

    While the death rate might be the same as the FLU, this is either much more contagious , plus a bit more severe. It's probably because it's airborn and the flu isn't.

    X-Files had so many ridiculous hide in your basement posts people can't take him serious regarding Covid. But do you guys disagree that if nothing was done the deaths would be over a million?

    Assuming that significantly high airborn infections occur how are the low risk living together with high risk people going to "stay away" from each other. Don't they use the same bathrooms & other parts of their residence. And what good will "staying away" from each other do when they are breathing in the same infected airborne air?

    The problems with this dangerous strategy is it failed in Sweden.

    Sweden has way more total deaths than their 3 Nordic neighbours (Norway, Finland, Denmark) combined while Sweden has a 50% larger population than the 3 of them combined. And Sweden is no better off economically. Clearly hard lockdowns, as occurred in those 3 nations, were the superior choice to Sweden's soft voluntary isolation approach.

    "Sweden dead = 5,918
    Norway dead = 278
    Finland dead = 346
    Denmark dead = 677"

    High risk people can't "stay away" from others who are infected because they have to work, eat, get medicines, go to clinics & hospitals, live in care homes, & live together with others who are not high risk.

    To eat, shop, get meds they can use the designated hours already set up for them. Hospitals and doctors would have the same precautions being used currently. As for work, tough call, I suppose if they can prove they are truly high risk, they should have option to not work and get unemployment, but at reduced rate, not inflated rate. Obviously if in a home or where ever the nurse / aides would need to take precautions..

    They don't need to eat at restaurants, go to sporting events, concerts until they feel safe. But why keep younger, healthier citizens from doing those things.

    They same politicians who impose the strictest restrictions even know it's safe to do those things if healthy, even if they try to trick the gullible into being scared to death.

    -Newsom in Cali
    -Whitmers husband in Mich
    -Mayor Kenny in Philly
    -Governor Murphy in NJ

    All despite telling the citizens under their control that it's not safe to eat out. That is putting others in danger as well. Each of them has been caught eating out with their families against their guidelines.

    That won't keep them from being infected from others who are infected at places where they get food, groceries, medicine, clinical or hospital care. And many such places have no "designated hours".

    Quote Originally Posted by Ladeda View Post

    Clinics & hospitals are where high risk people & low risk people congregate. So your plan for them to "stay away" from each other is not going to work. It's going to fail on multiple fronts, in multiple places. Not only in clinics & hospitals, but in grocery stores, work places, sidewalks, public transit, long term care homes, people's personal residences, etc.

    With your plan to let low risk people do whatever they please, even more of them will end up sick & in hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, etc, so even more risk for high risk people going to those places.

    With many, if not the vast majority, of countries worldwide that is simply not available and or not an option governments are willing to implement.

    Yet deaths continue there even under stricter conditions than you would prefer. You would allow people to do whatever they please, putting those nurses at greater risk of infection, which means the high risk people under their care are at higher risk of death because of your irresponsibility.

    See above. What the irresponsible do in acting less safely affects others who are at high risk. Studies prove this. That's how pandemics work.

    Furthermore if younger healthier people do whatever they want & get infected, many of them will get sick & fill up hospitals putting a strain on them & risking them being overwhelmed.

    What hypocrites do is irrelevant. Because person A says its wrong to murder but does it himself is not a justification for doing what is wrong or an excuse for you to do the same.

    To err is human. We're all sinners.
