It's just not deaths TODAY. Covid restrictions caused more mental health illness, caused worse diets, caused people more financially worse off (disproportionately the ones already not well off). Income is directly associated with people's health. But tanking the economy to save people from covid is like only good with no bad effects? And saying those that bring up the economy as heartless goons that just want more money is one of the dumbest arguments ever as money is directly tied to health.I call immediate bullshit on the idea that lockdowns caused more than 6.3 million deaths
Yeah, and the vast majority people sit at one computer station, even nurses use "their" computer even though any of them can use any computer on the floor as they don't even technically log into them as they all have generic accounts signed in. I'm in fact handling way more "coughed on" stuff than a nurse is and I just wash my hands before lunch unless they get legit dirty or there was something sticky or something out of the norm. What job actually entails touching things that are constantly coughed on? I don't even think an Amazon warehouse worker is touching many things in a day that were coughed on.Have you ever looked at a computer screen and seen lots of small spots on it? Do you know what those spots are? They're mostly dried blobs of saliva, mucus and the like from people sitting in front of the screen, breathing, talking, coughing or eating. Now imagine their keyboard and mouse, right under their mouth, and how much that's got on it. So for instance the IT guy who comes in sorts out people's computers, replaces their peripherals and so on is likely to spend plenty of time putting their hands over stuff covered in dried droplets from people's respiratory system. Lovely.
That's been my point the ENTIRE TIME. Everyone posts these dummy videos of coughs and sneezes with masks on but that was never a threat to begin with. Show me how a mask is gonna lower than concentration of covid actually floating around in the air from someone that is infectious. You get covid or the flu or a head cold from being with family/friend/co-worker for decently long periods of time in the same room just breathing shared air, and the cold builds up in the room over time. You ain't getting covid from someone asking you where the batteries are at Walmart.It's not so much the coughing, it's the basic breathing and talking. Most of this is a fine mist we don't usually notice - although breathe over a pane of glass: notice the condensation on it? Talk to someone not that far away, and you can definitely sometimes notice little flecks of fluid flying out, and we've surely all felt spatter in the face from someone speaking close enough.
Please tell me why I or anyone should be fearful of something that is less dangerous than something I already do all the time and don't find the risks high enough?Oh god, can you please hold an idea in your head for more than three days so that we don't have to constantly repeat stuff.
Yeah I do. The group I was with for a prolonged period had person(s) that were sick. My first cold last cold season was from friends and the 2nd cold I got was from co-workers. Unless you're gonna say that at the exact same time that my group of people I'm with had colds that I instead randomly got sick from picking something up at the grocery store that someone sneezed on... And that throughout my life what has always happened (getting sick when others around me are sick) is just some almost mathematically improbable coincidence that I'm in fact getting sick from touching door knobs (or whatever) at that exact time my friends are sick over and over and over again......and you've absolutely no idea how you got them. For all you know, they may have been from fomites.
Post a SINGLE cost-benefit analysis that proves otherwise...This is so utterly, completely, obviously untrue, so much so it's genuinely ludicrous that anybody would believe it, even for a second.
As I have to keep reminding you: you have already been provided with this evidence numerous times. You've either ignored it or dismissed it based on exceptionally poor understanding of data/research.
NO I FUCKING HAVEN'T, POST THE FUCKING COST-BENEFIT ANALYSIS OR SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT IT
