There are still a few positive cases where I live but only very little.

My state started the reopening process on Monday and there was a significant spike in new COVID-19 cases over 24 hours. I don't think we, or any other state in my country, should really be doing this right now. I wish our president or the government was more proactive when it comes to this pandemic.

I am still quite worried about a second wave. I know a second wave happened in 1918 and I believe it happened with H1N1. I know with the 1918 flu that the second wave was worse and that concerns me but I try really hard not to dwell on it. Wish the government cared more about it's people than the economy but I am also worried about the economy.
I agree, I think I'm in the same place. I'd really like to be able to begin reopening (and we are, slowly) and be able to get back to our lives, but I'm also worried about a second wave, especially since I have vulnerable people in my family. I am worried about the economy, though, and those who have lost their jobs. I definitely don't want this to go on forever.

Over 20,000 confirmed cases as of this morning. Ratings going up but moving to next phase of reopening in 2 days. Restaurants, hair/nail salons, tattoo shops, larger gatherings. They haven't waited long enough to decide. It's gonna get even worse.

Too much pressure from the right wing and people who don't care about anyone but themselves.

It's really sad that this is what's happening in this country. Hopefully elsewhere in the world is better.

Re: Corona Virus. - May 21st 2020, 07:03 AM

I feel like my country is handling absolutely, without a doubt, in the most crappy way imaginable. Nearly 100,000 have died. There's far over a million cases. And our leadership, both on a national and (for me) a state level, is just barreling right on ahead with opening up the economy. I'd like to say I'm surprised but by this point I'm not, really. I have friends who are sick or have been sick with COVID-19, and they report it being absolutely awful. I have friends who've lost their jobs. This is real, and this is affecting people. It could affect me on a personal level, eventually, or my roommate. We could get sick and maybe die. But that doesn't matter, right, as long as people can get their hair cut and their nails done.

As long as the Economy survives that's all that matters. Millions could die and it wouldn't matter because the ECONOMY. Don't get me wrong, I am terrified about the impacts this could have on the future and my job and all that but I see human life as important. This shows why we need a better run government.

Our rate of infection (percent positive) has suddenly shown an increase since we started reopening two weeks ago. But yes, lets further reopen the state in a few hours. Great idea...

On 1st June, they are going to let 50 people at a time to go to dinner at restaurants, pubs, etc but won't let more than 50 people in a gym. Go figure.

Over 1100 new confirmed cases in 1 day. Highest ever; our percent positive RATE is continuing to increase. What a shock...

Looks like I might be returning for non-essential work as a high risk person in a week after all... Really not okay.

I'm so sorry that you're in this position. I completely agree that it's not okay. Even though I know it's not much, I will keep you in my thoughts!

I respectfully disagree. It takes longer than 24 hours to catch COVID-19 even after exposure. It was just a coincidence. There is literally no way that cases could spike only 24 hours after opening. The incubation period is quite a bit longer than that.

Also keep in mind: the goal was from the get go to spread the curve, not eliminate it. I feel we are doing this-- we have been reopening here in Florida during much of May, yet hospitals are NOT overwhelmed ,etc. Despite all the complaints about us Floridians going to the beach during spring break, none of that bullshit they said would happen has happened here. I say reopen. This virus is circulating regardless- no way around it. Shutting the economy down for longer will just worsen the consequences



I am sorry if that seems selfish- but I am one of those people who needs to find a new job because of this. I need to put food on the table, afford essentials, rent etc. I cannot afford to be homeless over this. Either the government gives me a free paycheck or they end this fucking shutdown and let the virus hit. No in between. One stimulus check doesnt pay the rent for the next 12 months.

Keep in mind that some people CANNOT AFFORD the economic ramifications for this. I am not some corporate CEO complaining about being a million dollars short of 30 million... I am someone who could literally be put on the street over this. Keep that in mind. I am in no way willing to live on the street to save some Boomer who smoked half his life. Fuck that.


There needs to be an answer for me that doesnt involve homelessness or prolonged unemployment before I get on board with this fucking shutdown. The boomers who stand a (relatively small risk) of dying have political representation. Where is the representation for those of us who are being royally screwed over and pushed into prolonged unemployment?

Non-essential businesses in england are set to reopen on the 15th June. Cases are falling but there are still between 2000-3000 new infections a day and deaths are still in trippers figures. I'm worried that by the end of june we will be in the second wave.

I still can't believe England is still getting hit hard by COVID-19.
