Exactly. A negative test can provide a false sense of security.

My take from working in public health in my previous career:
A) tests are imperfect.
B) incubation periods variable, ie the time it takes for the virus to replicate inside your cells is unpredictable. Take the test too early, there will no nothing to detect. Take the test too late, you've already exposed others.

Then, they are not allowed to tie up a healthcare bed later on. We can just tell them it's a hoax, it'll be fine! Go home. Oh you can't breathe? "Oh people die" You made your bed, go lay in it.
Maybe a scarlet C?

Just saw a video of anti lockdown folks burning masks in washington square. At a certain point its exhausting to deal with these "99.9% of people are going to be fine" zealots. Fine let's go kill off a couple million people. I get anti vax irrational fear and being skeptical of science(they really got us with that Piltdown) but to go full Jonestown on a pandemic? If people are angry at the lockdowns enacted because of increases in cases they need to be angry at the lack of relief thats been provided by their govt.

They have an answer for that as well.

Part of the socialist cabal attempting to use the virus to make the people dependent on government handouts.

This will result in support for expansion of socialist policies.

Ultimately
No churches/no god except Islam
No capitalism
No guns
Mando abortions
Mando LGBTQ for elementary children (difficult to work this one in with mando Islam)
No sleeping in the right side of the bed.
Children—it’s what’s for dinner.

Sorry for the political post. But, most of the debate is driven by politics. If it was science and common sense, this thread would be a a few pages.

I think most of us have slipped here with the political talk. Hard not to do when almost half the country believes this COVID-19 is a political issue.
