  1. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Another interesting question in regards to whether or not something should be called a plague.... Do you take medical intervention into account? For example the bubonic plague at it's peak had a mortality rate of over 50% but with modern medicine the mortality rate for those who get it (it is still around just not very common) is estimated to be between 10% to 15% so despite it having plague in the name would it really be considered a plague anymore when taking modern medical intervention into account? Just a thought I thought was interesting.
  2. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    I just personally think we should keep the word plague reserved for the truly catastrophic illnesses as we have in the past, not every epidemic needs to be called a plague and to my knowledge no illness with a mortality rate under 10% has ever been widely called a plague and Covid is well under 10% even in the highest estimations. There are active diseases in the world with plague potential... If Ebola became an epidemic for example it would likely be considered a plague by most. Then again maybe if we started calling Covid a plague maybe people would stop refusing to wear masks 🤔

    Yeah I'm not subjecting myself to listening to the view so I'll just assume that's an example of an anti mask protest and yeah that's ridiculous, unless you have serious respiratory problems I'll never understand the issues people have with wearing a mask for (generally) short periods of time.

    To be fair that's all there is to this argument is speculation and recollection, it's not like anyone has been out there counting the number of people wearing masks and not wearing masks.

  6. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    I think I'd prefer to be sedated as much as heavily as possible
  7. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    That I think we can all agree on
  8. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Epidemic yes, high mortality rate? No not in comparison to true plagues throughout history. For context bubonic plague killed over 50% of those it infected.
  9. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Thank you for proving my point?
  10. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    I heard a story about one guy that wore lace panties in a store as his mask... Is it true? I don't know... But I can hope.
  11. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Yeah I wasn't going to say anything but calling this the plague is insane. Epidemic and plague are NOT synonyms.
  12. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Ugh, just realized I can't go to sleep because I have to go the store😭 Did that need to be posted here? No... But the thread was open and I felt like complaining. However just to make the the post is technically on topic... ... Coronavirus sucks!
  13. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    I didn't hear about those ones, that's... Sad... Very very sad.
  14. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Wait there were seriously anti mask protests? Where did those happen? I was referring to the anti lockdown protests.
  15. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Scientific? There is no scientific data on who did and didn't wear masks at the protests. However after looking up pictures of the protests in Lansing it does look like I was wrong the ratio definitely looks like there are a lot more people not wearing them. Probably got confused with other protest images... We see so damn many these days it's not hard to do. I have no problem admitting when I was wrong though and that one definitely looks like I was. EDIT: Okay I'm going to sleep I'm too tired for these serious conversations and I've had to edit every one of these posts for numerous typos, lol.
