While everyone is staying at home and social distancing we are preventing the amount of cases that are being urgent enough to land in a hospital as to not overwhelm the medical staff or god forbid it be like pearl harbor and we have so many cases that we now have to decide who lives and who dies. Are people really that heartless to not care? Do people really just care about themselves anymore during a tragic time?
If you look at the hospitals now there are already an overwhelming amount of people who have it and are dying and they're running out of space for the bodies. We need to be humans for a sec and not think about ourselves or politics or any superficial means.
People are staying at home and practicing being safe right now to help flatten the curve. They are helping to slow down the rate of which people are being infected so that way hospitals can treat those who need it and help save lives. Without these people, we wouldn't have workers to help strengthen the economy.
So while people are protesting the stay at home order and saying they deserve to go back to work, you are being completely selfish. You are not thinking of those around you. You are not thinking of the well being of your business. It should not be forgotten that the singular you is just one of many in a company. It takes an army to win a war, so to speak. And we can't have an army without our soldiers.
In short, making people stay at home RIGHT NOW, is allowing the people who dont have the virus to have minimal contact with the people who do have the virus therefore slowing the spread and decreasing the number of deaths.
The stay at home order is to protect Americans from having a massive amount of exposure. It is also giving the healthcare workers the time they need to treat everyone, amongst the scrambling around that they are already doing to keep those who are infected, alive.
Whether you're democrat or republican or independent or don't care about politics, you are still human and should care about the lives impacted by this pandemic. This shouldn't be about politics. It should be about doing what's right.
