Your lack of information is truly sad. First of all everybody will eventually get the virus. The shutdowns are meant to slow the spread not stop it completely. So you will get it wether you wear a mask or not. Desantis has taken the best strategy. Let business be open. If you want to go out then go if not stay home. Don't live in fear because that will weaken your immune system through stress. Best advice is to strengthen your immune system and keep it moving.
Proper mask use and reasonable distancing (not packing into venues like theaters and churches and big family reunions funerals weddings etc...) reduces the rate of spread so much that it would take a long time for everybody to get it. Look at places like Taiwan and Japan. I am healthy and middle aged. It has a 1/1,000 to 1/10,000 chance of really laying me low, killing me, or doing permanent damage if I catch it. That is a hell of a lot more dangerous than the flu. I am not living in fear. I am headed out the door to do an interval workout on the lagoon in the dark in 48 degree temp with a brisk NW wind. But I am not stupid about a virus.

1.5 million will be dead before "herd immunity" is established. Everyone getting it would be devastating. Other countries with strict guidelines have it under control with very little loss of life.

This epitomizes why our country is going down the drain.

Yeah. Spread it around, infect as many as we can, overload the hospitals and ICUs so that fewer get the proper care they need.

For those that survive, the long term damage is beginning to show, but is not fully realized.

910surfer, you are a fking idiot, and you'd be a great replacement candidate for gov of FLA after DeathSantis moves up to Senator.

Funny thing about a healthy strong immune system. It doesn't do anything if it doesn't recognize the virus as foreign until the virus is replicating out of control and wrecking stuff. Then the immune system panics and that is the double fuck. That's the real trick; does the immune system recognize it in time? Might be genetic luck, might be prior recent exposure to other similar coronas that cause colds. Should we really be rolling the dice like that when the case fatality and significant morbidity rate is demonstrably way higher than the flu?

Strengthening the immune system ( e.g. cardio exercise & maybe take something natural like elderberry ) is definitely wise advise which can't hurt and honestly really the only thing we can do other than minimize exposure. However you are spot on that there is something unknown about this thing, it doesn't affect all people the same way. Many many cases of young healthy folks having a really rough go of it. Definitely have to stay vigalent....

get up early and go surf - it'll make that hangover go away and/or make the workday more tolerable :)

Hemlock is more up the Trump lover alley, considering they think bleach is a good idea.
