Those people were largely wearing masks, as long as we continue to make masks necessary in public spaces we'll be good. The problem will be people coming from other states that don't want to wear masks.




And that’s happening quite a lot with tourists down here in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Opening the Hospitality industry and beaches before doing any major testing was such a bad decision. People here don’t care and don’t realize how their bad judgement in decisions like not wearing masks and not sanitizing their hands are the main problem to begin with.

It feels like there’s a sign out there saying “Welcome To The South, Don’t Let COVID-19 Get You!”

It is crazy here and just found out yesterday that my cousin’s dad(Beaufort, S.C.) had to go to the hospital cause he was having a hard time breathing and had a fever. My cousin goes to college in Chicago and lives there now so I can’t imagine what he’s going through. I’m hoping his dad recovers and gets through this.

No, just look at china. Everyone wears masks, the socialist government is a futuristic police state where hd cameras are everywhere, the goverment tracks cell phones, the goverment has tracking on national ids (required to have one), and even they cant controll it.

Its gonna be like the spanish flu... its the new norm for the next few years.

There are more countries in Asia than China, you say to look at them, and I can say look at South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Malaysia etc. All of them have stopped Covid dead in it's tracks through testing and mask wearing, even with their proximity to China they were able to do it without draconian measures. The bulk of their containment comes from mask wearing, some of these countries are 3rd world, but they already stressed wearing masks in public so it never hit them that hard. There are roughly 460 million people in Japan, Thailand and Indonesia, they have around 70,000 cases and 3500 deaths between them with 100 million more people than the US, it's pretty easy to see how they did it at this point. Thailand went so hard with masks they were arresting foreign tourists who weren't wearing them after they stressed wearing cloth masks in public.

Americans are stupid and selfish though, and something as simple as wearing a mask is looked at as an infringement on freedom even though we have enough anecdotal evidence from mask wearing countries to show that it may work. All anyone has to do is compare our numbers to California's from April 15th till now, our curve is on the down slope while theirs is spiking now. I picked April 15th because that is the day mask wearing in NY became mandatory, while California is setting new daily highs in cases, they just now made mask wearing mandatory last week.

Covid hasnt been stopped in asia. Korea just had 30+ people test positive. All of china is wearing a mask. Everything the other countries are doing, so is china and then some. The countries you mentioned are not that high when it comes to tested/per milllion rates. It is mostly due to lack of resources or a lack of transparency.

I expect numbers to explode across s.e asia sooner or later.

This is going to be like the spanish flu, its going to be around for a couple of years. The mask wearing will help prevent mass infections and overwhelming the medical infrastructure. But every country will have multiple waves.

Trump sux, Cuomo killed people unnecessarily. It’s ok to admit that. On this issue Cuomo is the absolute worst in the United States.

For Trump, it B best to not step on the Governors feet. They B destroying their re-election chances.
Dat and if Trump stopped them with Nat Guard, they'd try to impeach him again. :nod:
