Are people aware that there is a pandemic?


Recommended Posts

Easter. Full streets. No one (besides me) wearing a mask/covering their face. Barely anyone keeping minimum distance. Did people forget that there is a pandemic?

On the positive side, many of them are generously donating to the government in form of legal penalties for violating the lockdown. Maybe we can finance the crisis from their money?

I have a friend who is a Trump fan, spoiler tags for conspiracy theory:

he thinks this whole thing is a hoax. I have a feeling that hypothesis was invented by government agents from certain countries because the more US people they can convince this is a hoax, the more the hospitals will overflow and the longer shutdown will have to keep going and the longer the economy will be paused.. and of course the more people will die, but I don't think they care about this.



I regularly have nightmares now about people not physical distancing. It's so upsetting.

Experienced that around here on Easter, too, @onsenseal.  I thought the churches were closed; every church I notice has a sign up saying "online services only".  But so many people from my neighborhood went out to church someplace apparently and went to brunch or something and were talking in the parking lot about "lovely service" and how they have to do prayer group and like nothing's different.  It's frightening.

mum's friend said he was going to drop in next week

 

i posted on his FB wall, that given mum is 68 with emphysema, and his hubby has MS, i do not support this idea

 

he deleted that comment

 

so, i posted publicly to my wall, that people keep visiting. And asked if i should ring local police or crimestoppers if it happens again

 

sister said local police, i replied that i was saving number to my phone

 

so, hopefully he saw that

Nice move. They are opening up and slowly removing restrictions where I live. Politicians say: Just because you're allowed to do something, doesn't mean it's smart to do.

Doesn't seem to work out too well.

Last night I had the first dream with details I can specifically remember about being horrified to realize I was out in public without a mask, and talking to a lady who assured me she wasn’t sick, but who had a cough and sniffles and runny nose. I backed away from her, then turned and fled.

Finally had to break down and do a Target run yesterday, having been nowhere except the pharmacy and grocery store since March 19th. Going to Target never enhances my appreciation of the human race, but Jesus. Do none of you fucking idiots read the news? I estimate that fewer than half the people there were wearing masks, and I gather no one even knows what 6’ looks like. Also let your baby gnaw on the cart handle while she’s in the baby seat.

@DogMan, good on you. It’s up to us to protect ourselves, since the governments are all doing such rousingly half-assed jobs.
