Why lockdowns are the wrong policy - Swedish expert Prof. Johan Giesecke
I feel this is worth viewing.
One of the biggest problems that I have with locking down the economy is the problems associated with how to get it going again.
Those thoughts prompted me to start the thread When to go back? What to go back to? on April 6.
Where will this experiment take us? From another thread. Part of the reason China was able to stop the spread, was that they isolated everyone who tested positive outside there homes (they had facilities/camps for them if they weren't in need of care). They also quarantined those who were...sprinter-source.com
Prof. Giesecke mentions how to get the economy going again as one of the problems that he sees.
Our NY Gov. Cuomo is completely focused on the case numbers and deaths. He has already stated that he will reopen and watch the numbers. If the numbers go up, he will close down again. Of course the numbers will go up when the tight restrictions are relaxed. Most all of the experts predict that as happening. In my mind it is inevitable. So eventually Cuomo relaxes things... the numbers go up, he closes it down again... lather, rinse, repeat. The economy will never get going until there is a vaccine or the economy collapses completely. How long can the unemployed and small businesses with no income hold on? He also proposes 25% occupancy in restaurants. Restaurants can't make a living at 25% occupancy. It just doesn't work that way. They won't be able to afford to open.
The government can keep printing money. History shows that isn't a good economic policy.
As I sit here my wife is watching the morning programs. They pound the fact that cases and deaths are going to go up as restrictions are eased. Of course it will. We have no vaccine. We can't stop the numbers going up. We can slow the increase down, but that doesn't stop them. Sorry to sound callous, but it is a reality.
Those in the risk category need to wash their hands, maintain physical distancing, and keep away from infection as best they can. That is a personal responsibility. The government can't do that for you.
China already developed the vaccine in the same lab that they developed the disease. I am sure her and ilk already have it, the Chinese would not want to lose their allies.Ms. Pelosi doesn't seem concerned, and she's 80 years old and highest risk group. Why?
How do we know a vaccine already hasn't been developed?
I wash my hands as much a I always have which is not much, and on the rare occasion that I have to put on the stupid face diaper, I only cover my mouth, not my nose. Stay sterile, and get sick and die, good idea.When there is not much you can do to prevent breast cancer, there is tons of things you can do to prevent Corona.
Do you use hand sanitizers and masks?
I don't wanna sound like I'm some kind of clairvoyant but I posted similar suspicions shortly after pandemic declared.China already developed the vaccine in the same lab that they developed the disease. I am sure her and ilk already have it, the Chinese would not want to lose their allies.
Sounds like admittance of ignorance.I wash my hands as much a I always have which is not much, and on the rare occasion that I have to put on the stupid face diaper, I only cover my mouth, not my nose. Stay sterile, and get sick and die, good idea.
Go back into your safe space, or your bubble. I work around a lot of men that do the same. We have something called an active immune system.Sounds like admittance of ignorance.
When you become virus carrier, you will spread it to lot of people around before you will die.
