It's Time To Panic

We are most likely going to see a rise in both infection and death as we ease lockdown, because lockdown is not preventative, it’s just delaying the spread to give us time to prepare, remember. The data now coming in from countries that didn’t impose lockdown, shows that the vast majority that have the virus, have showed almost no symptoms. What we currently don’t know is if the lockdown helped ease the spread or if it’s a case of heard immunity. I tend to lean more towards the latter, due to multiple factors, like the efficiency of lockdown in a densely populated very poor areas, where people share basic facilities and social distancing almost nonexistent. Also, the entire population is congregating at the exact same high risk locations to buy food, this is in no way curbing the spread.

I agree lockdown has helped to ease the strain on the frontlines in dealing with severe cases, but at what cost? This is why people are starting to attack the lockdown, because the cost is far greater than we thought. Also the tyrannical enforcement of non-science based regulations are creating a tipping point within the population.

Today President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa has authorized the placement on parole of selected categories of sentenced offenders as a measure to combat the spread of Covid-19 in correctional facilities. These are the same prisons who let criminals off on parole that then immediately go gang rape and murder children within day of their release. Also we have absolutely no information just as to how infection has spread within the prison population, so far no death there as of yet, but let release them just in case.

Funny how the lockdown/COVID-19 actually does benefit quite a few people

Of that 19,000 at least 10,000 have been exposed to the virus. Jeeze.

The huge problem I see with the 'herd immunity' idea is that absolute crush of cases hitting the medical system all at once. It could break it.

I talked to my brother day before yesterday. He told me he could see the CV hospital in the area from his office. 237 beds, 38 in use that day. The other two hospitals in the area are handling 'normal patients' and are just normally busy.

That is in Eastern Washington State where it all got good and going in the US. They HAVE flattened the curve, but at what cost? The credit union he works for has delayed payments on 300 million in loans for 90 days. He says an ugly fraction of that paper is going to go bad.
