I keep hearing that, but I just dont believe the stories. I personally know 2 people who are sick. Including one who is younger than the supposed "most at risk" age group.
One thought he had the normal flu until he got tested. And the other (younger of the two) said it's the sickest he has ever been.
But unfortunately, that is the price we pay to live in a supposedly free country. The most they should have done is issued their recommendations. It's up to the people to either follow them or not.
Cant force people not to live their lives as they see fit. Otherwise it isnt America anymore.
I've said it from the beginning. If people are afraid, then stay home. But we cant shut down the country, fine people, force people, ruin lives and businesses, just because some people may get sick. Every person I know in the medical feild around my area, says it is definitely increased from normal flu season, but the hospitals are no where even close to capacity. Emergency rooms empty.
I fully understand this may not be the case everywhere. But I also dont believe for a single second that this is the end of the world, we need to force dictatorship on the American people, virus they make it sound like it is.
