Will you rather run the risk of having corona or keep quarantining at home for another three months?

I would wash my hands, wear a mask, do my part, but yes I would risk it. Keep nursing homes on lockdown and recommend the elderly and those at risk to stay home when possible. Let’s start thinking logically here

Logic is scary. Emotions are awesome.

I somehow like staying at home. So, would keep quarantining.

Is it either or? Risk your own and others’ health now or wait 18 months?

How about we listen to the middle experts and take this a day or week at a time. In the meantime.... STAY HOME, and be a good person.

For myself? Sure, I’d take the risk. For my baby and husband with asthma? Not a chance. Plus, the potential to pass it on to anyone else I come into contact with.

The 1918 flu strain still kills hundreds of thousands of people worldwide every year. Social distancing only prolongs the time period in which people get sick. It DOES NOT reduce the number of people that get sick

No way I’m leaving. I’ve made it this far! This whole thing has just proven how much I don’t really like people I interact with on a day to day basis 🤷🏼‍♂️ But over Skype calls we are golden! I’m WFH until the daily Covid death rate = 0

I agree. But the question was do we continue to quarantine or risk getting Covid-19? My choice would be stay quarantined 🤷🏼‍♂️ Obviously essential workers are in a very dangerous spot and it’s not really a choice and I agree, we are lucky

Let’s change this fact pattern a bit: would you rather come out and be guaranteed to get covid/give it to someone you love....or stay at home 3 more months and be guaranteed never to get it or pass it to someone you love.

No since another three months does not change the risk profile. Also, when winter comes it would double down with flu season. Not ready to be permanently quarantined. Everyone just take precautions when they go out. Keep wearing masks and don’t shake hands.
