philg: Here we are in Massachusetts in our third month of shutdown with 2.3X the death rate of never-shut Sweden (some stats). Judging by the shape of the curve of deaths per day, the virus is spreading here at roughly the same rate as it has been spreading in Sweden. Our offices are shut. Our non-essential business are shut. Our flight schools are shut until a bureaucracy can come up with a detailed plan for the few hundred students that might want to fly during the remainder of 2021. Our theaters are shut. Unlike in reopened or never-shut Europen, our schools are shut. How, then, is the virus spreading?
Let’s consider a young healthy person here in Massachusetts. What has he/she/ze/they been able to do?
play sports with friends: illegal
meander around a mall: illegal and impossible
walk outside without a mask: illegal
go to the movies: illegal and impossible
go to the gym and get fit: illegal and impossible
learn to fly: illegal
go to the local mosque or church: illegal
заниматься музыкой с педагогом, участвовать в ансмаблях, давать концерты -- это он забыл перечислить
How about “Meet someone on Tinder, go to that person’s house, have sex, and sleep over”? Legal and possible.
