    What is the main reason for ANY human coronavirus or rhinovirus (another virus that causes common cold/respiratory symptoms) spreading around the the United States.

    1. Highly contagious

    2. People don't live in isolation chambers.

    They interact with humans, their family, friends, work places colleagues. They live and work in small quarters, they travel in small spaces (trains, air, cars, etc.).  We touch things other's touched.

    There is no solution to stopping a coronavirus unless everyone completely isolates themselves.  Then, deal with the SIGNIFICANTLY worse effects of people doing isolation than the virus itself.

    All one can do is avoid people, don't touch things others touch, don't find oneself in small spaces.

    No plan could have ever stopped this virus from attacking 188 countries around the world.  This is the nature of a human coronavirus.  They historically simply run their course.

    The only plan America undertook was a shutdown to avoid overwhelming the healthcare system.  We are paying an enormous cost for the implementation of that plan.  Costs that far exceed the damage the virus has done to people this year.

    The failure of the Trump administration (federal government) to lead by requiring face masks and social distancing - along with all of those asinine Republican governors who followed Trump's lead.

    Because of their failure in leadership it allowed all those selfish human being who are more interested in their so-called "personal rights" to place more importance on themselves instead of the good of all and to go about infecting others.

    The lack of any plan to keep the virus contained.

    Americans keep going on about their freedom not to wear a mask. Freedom doesn’t really mean much when you’re dead. 

    Don’t leave home unless you have to. And if you do leave home wear a mask.
