Or, if you visit your Mother and bring in groceries that you just got for her, you got exposed in the grocery store, bring it in & everyone gets it.I agree with the detrimental effects of not interacting with relatives.
Family members should have priority in being tested, once they are negative, they could be allowed to visit their loved one. I know they could contract the virus the next day after their test, but some interaction is necessary.
Nothing is perfect but using precautions is the best we can do.
Like a lot of questions about the virus...what's worse, the sickness or the cure?
Civil disobedience will make it very difficult to enforce.Speaking of authoritarians: https://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2020/04/09/no-more-visiting-friends-and-neighbors-under-whitmers-expanded-coronavirus-order/5125426002/
The more I see of Gov. Whitmer, the less I like.
Same thing happened here. On Feb 4th, after 24 hours of oncoming symptoms, I had a fever of 102.4, headache, dry cough, shortness of breath...and by the 5th every joint in my body ached. I knew it was something I hadn't experienced before so I called my Dr first thing that morning and was in the Dr's office at 11:45am. And I'm one who doesn't go to the doctor unless it's absolutely necessary.In December, January, and February what was identified by doctors as a 'viral infection' ripped through our small (~10,000) town. At one point there were 140 kids absent from the middle school. The symptoms?: High Fever (102-103 for me), dry cough, headache, shortness of breath. We assume that our community already had Covid-19, since this predated the big scare. It was like a bad flu year, but it didn't kill any businesses or shut anything down.
Anybody else think they already had Covid??
They're working on that right now.We have a growing chinese community here in Eau Claire, WI. That, and we have many people from the Philippines as well. They, or their family members, will travel through the various major airports, where people come into contact, with international travelers from all over. Especially the other asian nations of that region.
We had a nasty flu virus, that had the same symptoms to what the wuhan virus has, hit at Christmas time. It was the second worst flu strain I've seen hit the staff, and it was not that bad aside from lingering for roughly for three weeks. Typically about a third of the staff get the yearly flu that hits. Almost twice as many people got sick with the flu in January. Irritating flu to say the least, but we worked through it. Some of us needing to take a couple days off at its peak, but that was it.
I wonder if there is a test to see if someone was infected with the wuhan virus? It would be interesting to see those results. We also have one of the lowest confirmed wuhan infections in the state. However, with the number of tests done vs the overall population, that doesn't necessarily mean much.
Libertarians have the most to gain and learn from this pandemic. Policy wise, we are left mostly on the sidelines to watch political and policy power drift into the hands of authoritarians to one degree or another, driven by a nobel and outdated ideology of free markets vs closed markets.Another reason we need to end the shutdown - not only is it ruining our economy, it is emboldening the many closet authoritarians in various levels of Federal, State and local government.
How will we know how to trust modern markets or governments? - thanks to Ben Franklin, we have reason to have faith in modern experimentation.Yet so many do.
For a public health misdemeanor they hand cuff him and stuff him in a car in front of his child. Would these be the same police that wouldn't kick down your door to confiscate weapons if so ordered...No, but if police suspect them of committing a crime, they can detain them until their identity is established. In this case, the person was suspected of violating the Colorado Public Health order, which is a misdemeanor.
Yep, they would. I'm not trying to justify it, just saying what the law is. That means this sort of behavior is state supported and not a one-off. It also means a person would have a harder time getting any redress in the courts.For a public health misdemeanor they hand cuff him and stuff him in a car in front of his child.
