So I am looking at my Google feed yesterday for news as I do during my day at work. I see that there is a story about Michigan State University telling their students that there is no in person classes. What happened next was not something that they had hoped I bet.
The students then went out to the bar to congregate, talk in close quarters, lose their faculties and let loose. All things that we have been warned will all be our doom. So America you have to understand something right now
- We are not going stop living our Lives
- We understand that the Threat of Corona is Not that High for Most People
- Shutting Down Schools Might not be a Great Idea and I will share with you why in my personal story of what My son and I are doing today
- We CANNOT stop living our Lives. You might as well just kill us Corona
- We should stand up to Corona, Not bow down to it
- We need to go deeper into what is really going on around the World before we panic
- We need to Find out who is Panicking and wake them up
What is Social Distancing for Corona Spread?
Social Distancing is essentially the practice of limiting the number of people who congregate in one place at one time to prevent the spread of infectious disease like COVID-19 . The NBA, NCAA, MLB and PGA are some major sports organizations who have decided to support this social distances by suspending their seasons. A big move because so much money, economy and fun is lost by these moves.
These Social Distancing decisions are following suit to the main case studies of Free nation Corona death which are South Korea and Italy at this time.
Italy in which, 1200 people have died from the virus. 200 overnight on March 12 to 13th alone. Talk of Social Distancing began in Italy around February the 24th. About a month after the outburst of COVID 19 IN China. Italy kicked around the idea of no fans being at sporting events.
March 9th 463 Deaths Then as the numbers of infection and death started rising in Italy. We watched as Italy officially canceled all sporting games all together.
Americans companies like Google and Amazon have caught on to the Social Distancing movement by canceling company events and telling employees to work from home when able. Americans movies and concerts have been canceled and postponed as well.
My thoughts on that is. It is great to get a jump in America on the virus spread. But America does not have the same exposure as Italy. Nor the same Factors that are seemingly fueling the spread.
March 11th Italy takes even more drastic precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Ordering all shops and restaurants to close except grocery stores and pharmacies until March 25th
March 12th So They Canceled My Sons School in Michigan for a month to prevent COVID-19 spread
Guess where we are going with his classmates today? A bowling alley for a Birthday party for a kid in his class.
People are going to congregate and have fun. They are going to get out and do things. I question how much Social Distancing is going to stop the outbreak of Corona in America.
Your just going to redirect the places where people are going to go.
The main issue is still going to be testing, quarantining , treatment and prevention.
Give me Liberty or Give me Corona Death:
In my mind and heart I have talked to myself and walked it out enough to come to this conclusion. At least I think. The Congress, Parliament and Supreme Court of my Conscious is telling me that I am going back to pretty much normal in my life.
I am not going to be an American who is hiding in the shadows, hoarding food, or running from the Corona Virus. Because, there are many factors that say that it is not going to work. But also that the situation in America does not cause for such caution. While, I do not think that I am in a High Risk population. So why should I participate in the Panic Culture?
After listening to one of my favorite sports talk radio shows on Wednesday as I was spending time with my son after picking him up from school. I was explaining to him what the Corona Virus was and what was going on. But as I listened to the show and during that day. My feelings toward what was going on changed from I am aware and cautious to I am a super concerned and taking extra steps.
My son was looking forward to going to church that night for Bible Study. I was surely going to get him there. Until I did not because I wanted to limit our Social interaction after listening to Big Drew and Jim give a passionate and educated discourse on what was going on.
Later on that night the NBA suspended the season for 30 days after finding out that Utah Jazz Forward Rudy Gobert tested positive for the Corona Virus. It was real to me then. Well more than ever it was real. I was already Social Distancing in important areas of my life in which I will not share publicly as of right now.
I was paying a cost. So I was not like Rudy Gobert in denial or making light of Corona ever. But I will say that I do not feel the way that I felt on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday morning to afternoon of this week.
Last Night I Said NO MORE, For What?
Why We Need To Pump the Brakes on Drastic Measures So Soon in America
So the Governor of the state of Michigan went to a microphone on Thursday night and announced that there will be no more school in Michigan until early April. I did not decide that someone else did that for me. Yes I did think about it. Should my children be in school? My decision based on science. Since people like to use that term so much these days in a condescending way.
Children are the least target of Corona. So why are children being taking out of school. Putting more pressure on our economy and parents in the workforce.
Fortunately the only thing I might lose from this is sleep. Because, I am able to work from home on my own schedule. But that sleep is valuable to me being that I am borderline a part of the High Risk Population. Or I just might be in it. But man parents are going to have to pay for a baby sitter. They are not going to be able to stay home and watch their kids.
Or they are going to have leave their kids with a babysitter. Hoping that the babysitter is not your parents, elderly relatives or at risk population. Again the children are going to be fine. It is the High Risk population that need to be protected.
So why are children out of school again?
Tell me that you are protecting the Teachers Union already. Just tell me that. Don ‘t lie to my face. This is the solution to the problem in my eyes.
If you are a student or a member of the staff at a school and you need to Social Distance during this time it is understood and should be taking into consideration. But why are we closing the whole school system for?
This creates other significant problems without doing a super job of social distancing. My son and I are going to be at a bowling alley with his classmates and many other people I am sure. People are not going to stop coming together, having fun, and enjoying life because of Corona Virus.
UNLESS THEY ARE IN THE HIGH RISK POPULATION .
I think she just found out that we are going Bowling during the Corona Virus.
So we are using our hands on the same bowling balls? Your expecting us to not put our hands in our face? Who is expecting us not to have fun? We are children and we are not in danger of the stupid Corona Virus.
Who thought of closing the schools again?
Here are a few of the thoughts that go through my head. Some of them are conflicting. But it shows the Complexity of these issues.
Please do your own Research. These thoughts are mostly or all things that have been said repeatedly from Experts. I will document the basis of these statements. But I promise if you do enough research you will hear these things or come to these conclusions. They are not far off in my opinion
- There may be no way that the American public will be able to stop from getting Corona Virus, But…. There is an opposite statement below also supported by facts and experts
- Your panic based off the Main Stream Media ‘s Tone and Focus is Making Things Worst
- Every Nation had Different Factors and Demographics that will affect the Corona Virus Spread Rate
- We don ‘t know enough about the Corona Virus and stuff just happens that we cannot explain
- We are all going to Die Someday, We do not choose how that happens
- America Needs to Focus on what is Most Important, Health, Wellness and the At Risk Populations
- The Bottom Line is the Deaths in America, Which like the spread is very low so far!
- There is a chance that the Spread of Corona hits a Plateau very soon and is controllable
- The Corona Virus IS comparable to the Flu
- The Corona Virus is NOT exactly like the yearly Flu
- We are Dealing with a very complex problem, Use your best judgment
- Social Distancing is premature
- Social Distancing is a sound precaution
- Social Distancing is not going to work
- Americans are not going to Stop Living their lives
Let ‘s Get Real Practical about COVID-19 Spread
I went to Arbys on Friday afternoon. I went into the bathroom and saw this on the wall as I dried my hands after washing them of course!!! Before and after Corona right.
While, I was in the bathroom taking this picture. A guy used the bathroom and walked out as I spoke to him passing by. He walked out of the bathroom to make his order. I don ‘t know if he paid with card or cash. Handing it to the cashier or not. But if he was a carrier of Corona virus than it is possibly all over Arbys and everyone who is in that Arbys on that day and a few days after.
How long can the virus live on a surface is unknown. But it is thought to be at least 3 days. I have heard it said to be maybe at long as 3 weeks in some circumstances.
Did I also mention that he was riding with a fellow worker. So whoever was in the truck with that guy and the rest of their families and coworkers are at risk.
That is how it is working a million times over in America. #ForInstance #JustThatEasy #HowIronic
COVID-19 is said to be a lot more easy to spread than the normal yearly flu that we see every year. That being said how do we expect for Corona not to spread like wildfire in the U.S when the flu infects 26 million people a year according to the CDC statistics.
What are some of the ways that are easy avenues of spread that Americans cannot or will not avoid.
Are you going to stop eating fast food? You really think people can afford to take off work when sick? Or even know that they have Corona?
Are you going to stop going out?
Are you going to stop going to work?
Are you going to stop going to the Grocery Store?
Will you stop going to the Post office?
- Gas station
- Amusement parks
- Dave and Busters like my son and I went to last Saturday which was packed
- No more Kids sports?
- Don ‘t hand me any Receipts , That ‘s what your thinking right now right? It runs through my mind 🙂
- I am sure your Hand washing game is flawless and Airtight, Always at the right time
- You always have a Sanitizer for every sitatuion
I think we get the point. I am sure that I am missing something. The big thing is this. We will spend so much energy trying to stop the spread of Corona where you would of never gotten Corona. Or where you were going to never be able to stop from getting it.
That is going to defeat the whole purpose.
So much stress and anxiety caused by news reports, behavior changes, and lifes norms being shut down. This is not good for the immune system.
The Government Cannot Protect Us from our Ultimate Fate
The Government seems to be trying to find a good reason to be useful in places that it is doing more harm than good. The truth is we are all going to die some day. For many people it is based off how we treat our bodies, what risk we take on and just plain old age.
Every year there is something that comes along like a wind and blows upon the population and takes out the weak among us. Whether it is the flu, or food poisoning, the wrong medication, or other incidents.
There are many dangers in our world that are fair and others not so fair. Stray bullets, deranged parents, spiteful spouses or partners etc. This time it is a huge flaw in the Chinese government that enabled the atmosphere for Corona to be born and flourish. Until it spread across it ‘s borders into the whole world.
It would really be a terrible thing to die in America from the Corona Virus. Whether you were 88 or 34 years old. But this is life on planet Earth. No one can protect us from that. Not even the Government.
This is not to say that we cannot do a great job of being prudent and putting up defenses. See my blog post on that as well. We want to put pressure on our Government to be better in response to Virus Spread! They need to be better.
My Big Solution for the Corona Virus in America
Don ‘t throw the baby out with the bath water. Let ‘s stop the NBA season because we want to protect the NBA players from the Corona Virus. Are you serious? Have you seen Lebron James and the 12th guy on the bench lately? Cut like a diamond. They are the healthiest among us.
They are not in danger from the Corona virus. They have a better chance of being shot at a club on a Saturday night than dying from the Corona virus. So what are they going to be doing when you tell them no more games. Let me guess. They will be at home twiddling their fingers like the rest of America.
They are not going to be meeting anyone new. Going out to any clubs or parties. They are not going to be taking any chances that will expose them to Corona.
Why not find out who is at risk at the stadium and on the team. Finding out how to deal with that risk. Instead of ending the whole thing. Causing damage to the whole entity and the greater whole of our nation.
I mean how are the Nursing facilities still running at all? Where is the Bubble that is keeping everyone safe? There is no bubble. There are going to be risk. We can limit our risk but we are going to shut everything down and ruin some important things and for what?
When we can calmly think about getting those who are in High Risk Populations educated. While gathering our resources to better serve them in their time of need.
While the rest of the Population takes the risk of being a human being on Earth. You know the old saying. I could walk outside today and get hit by a bus before xy and z happens to me. For many this is very true concerning the Corona Virus.
Well that is what the Media and the Government cannot tell you about the Corona Virus. They will be bias and put their spin on it. They can ‘t tell you the whole truth all the time neither do they want to. But I will! I will try.
Be healthy and be Wise! Live Long and Prosper. We pray!
My BackStory on this Story
I am afraid that because of media bias and inability to tell the truth without a filter. The General public are not getting the Total Facts, Logic, Perspective and Truth about the Corona Virus Spread. But this is it. I am going to tell you everything that I know and feel based off the information that is out there from the CDC, World Governments, and the very news media that I speak of.
But I am also going to use logic and air on the side of caution where I feel that it is proper. If you need to scoot down to the Nuts and Bolts please do.
But first I am going to give you some full disclosure about who you are listening too. Unlike the media. Who will not tell you that they have a major bias and agenda in the way that they give us information.
The first thing I must say is that I had to pull myself out of the Corona Virus fear and hysteria after the Trump Rose Garden Press Conference yesterday. The fear and hysteria in my own mind kept coming and going over the last couple of weeks I would say.
I have been taking proper precautions over the last month or so. Monitoring the disturbing situation from China in January until today. As we see the streets of Wuhan transported to Italy and pretty much across the whole globe in a matter of a few months.
Full Disclosure from Me:
So yes I am a person who gets his information from as many news sources that I can. Right Wing, Left Wing, and Neutral. I just want the facts so that I can make decisions for my family and self.
Because of my history of pre diabetes and high cholesterol. I just might be in the High Risk category for sickness and death from Corona.
I am a Christian Conservative African American who supports Donald Trump. But I am willing to agree with any voice that makes a good point about what we need to be doing to keep Americans safe. Do I have a bias. I would ashamedly say yes I do. But I do not allow it to totally shroud my judgment like 99% of the media it seems.
As a Christian my biggest concern is the well-being of people and the truth. So this is my perspective. Logic and Facts are King.
