1. Covid-19 isn't a political game that can be won
There are a lot of politicians and a lot of people outside of politics who believe that this virus is actually the fault of a political party. No political party caused Covid-19 and yet, listen to five minutes of politicians and people going back and fourth from opposing parties, and you'd think they did. This is not a Republican, Democratic, Conservative, Liberal virus because we're all dying of it. Period.
2. Everything scientists and doctors know about Covid is not fake news
It is unbelievable that people who have never spent five seconds in a lab or doing any type of research outside of some Buzzfeed article all of a sudden think they know WAY more than people who have studied viruses and diseases and their spread and transmission their whole entire lives. I don't know about you, but I don't give scissors to my 5 year old nephew and tell him to cut my hair if I want it to come out right for a reason!
3. People are not expendable
Some people are so incredibly selfish as to not give AF about anyone else including apparently themselves. They sit around talking about how this is natural selection at its finest, and so what if a few old people and sickly people die. There are 45 million Americans with underlying health conditions and it's not just the elderly. Add to that, it's not just those with underlying conditions or the elderly that are getting sick. Thanks to complete ignorance, the virus is spreading to younger and younger populations, a lot whom we are now seeing in hospital beds on respirators. You might not care at this moment but what happens when your trash isn't being picked up, or there is no one to teach your kids, or you can't get a doctors appointment because those people have died. Each death affects each of us and will affect more and more things the longer this goes on. We're already starting to see the effects.
4. Doing nothing isn't helping
This whole idea that we all need so much freedom as to allow no masks or any precautions at all, has not worked. It hasn't. If it had, numbers would not be on the rise as fast as they are and we would all be back to life as we know. Guess what, we've tried your way, and it's failed, it's time to actually try doing something that can safe our lives because ignoring this and just hoping for the best is not going to make it go away.
5. Testing is not the only reason cases are on the rise
Testing will only give you a partial snap shot of cases on the rise, but what you really need to look at is how many people now as opposed to last month have actually landed in the hospital. Say all you want about how testing is the ONLY reason numbers are rising but that DOES NOT explain why hospital cases are rising at an exponential rate because no one is just going to the hospital and being hooked up to ventilators for the fun of it. You cannot explain that one away.
6. This virus doesn't give a damn about your so called rights
This is just laughable to see people protesting for their rights to walk around and infect people. Look around. Your so called rights aren't making Covid disappear any faster. Have things magically gotten better because you went outside with a poster and an AK-47 and screamed about how unfair life is because someone is asking you to wear a mask? Has your job gotten back to normal? How is your dating life? Are your kids back to school like normal? Did you wake up and everyone was suddenly cured of the virus? Virus and disease are the great equalizers because they can't be beaten with money, or your race, or your political party, or your protests. They don't care what you think or feel or your status in society no matter how bad you think you can make this thing to bend to your will. YOU WILL LOSE EVERY TIME.
7. Masks are not completely useless
Are you telling me that someone open mouth coughing and sneezing into your face is something you are fine with....on a good day...let alone in a Corona Virus pandemic? Don't scream about how right you are, prove it! Would you be willing to stand there and have someone infected cough on you so you can prove your point 100% in how useless masks are because if the answer is no, then welcome to reality. If the answer is yes, then at this point in your delusion, you might as well go outside during a rainstorm with no umbrella and try to convince us all that you are somehow going to be the only one not to get wet. Hint: it's not going to work. No one has ever said masks are the cure for Corona virus or that masks stop all and every bit of transmission but what they are there to do is to help prevent the spread of the virus which is 100% better than nothing.
8. Trump's Covid advice is unfounded and dangerous
Where are the results of Trump's miraculous plans to fix our economy---his main focus, forget human lives, oh but also maybe lastly to cure the virus. You, myself, anyone can say we're winning the wareon Corona but none of the numbers are backing him up. Where is this magical place in the US where people have explicitly followed his bleach cures, or his no mask wearing preachings, or who have a vaccine lickity split. What medical or scientific knowledge does he actually possess in order to accurately give health advice? Has he studied this? Has he even listened to his own health advisors? Is he sending his own son back to a public school with other children who potentially can get him sick in the Fall while he demands yours go back regardless of the risk in your area? Why is the country not cured from listening to his sage advice?!?
