If 99.96% of Americans have not died from covid, are the restrictions imposed by your local politician unreasonable?

    It does now seem the over reaction wasnt needed but hindsight is always 20/20. One thing is for sure now its 100% political. The democrats would see us all unemployed and starving, begging the government for hand outs rather than see Trump reelected.

    My guess is that you're a shitlib troll making a pathetic attempt to make skeptics look bad.

    The fact is that they are unreasonable, but for different reasons.  As Fauci explained at the outset, these restrictions don't change the total number of people who eventually get infected.  They just spread them out more over time so that hospitals don't "get overwhelmed."  Since we now know that the virus isn't nearly as deadly as once thought, and there is no risk of that happening, there's no longer any rational justification for these restrictions.

    In fact, continued restrictions on healthy people are worse than useless.  They delay the necessary and inevitable herd immunity, thus putting the elderly and immunocompromised at greater risk, not less.  70% of people WILL ultimately be infected, and over 99.9% will recover.  It is better that that 70% be composed of the fit and healthy, as they are extremely unlikely to die from it.
