If I was personally afraid of getting COVID, I would as my home country - consistently ranked as one of the most free, democratic, safe and transparent countries in the world - essentially has no COVID and only has COVID deaths in double digits. But just because I’m not afraid doesn’t mean others in this community feel the same way.I am glad to know, you are not a part of the police here.
Did you consider returning to your "police state" country.
News flash - the majority of adults have children and are in regular contact with kids. Did all 4 adults die?Thanks for the quote, as I expected, they can't establish where the infections occur, but it must be a very small number, "quedáte tranquilo" in the best Argentinian style.
All 4 of the adults I know who contracted COVID in the past month have kids, or are in regular contact with kids, and 3 of them contracted COVID from kids.
I don’t think it’s a case of needing full lockdowns or closing schools at all. It’s simply managing the numbers so health care systems don’t get overwhelmed by targeting things that make enough of a dent in the numbers - there is no saving everybody. Ultimately he who wants to enjoy the risks made by others to keep society functional needs to accept the some risk themself - a bus driver, a grocer, a doctor, a teacher, a hairdresser - everyone.I think the people who still haven't accepted the fact that we will have to learn to live with the virus are extremely delusional. There is no end in sight - taking into account slow vaccine rollout + mutations. Argentina is land locked with very relaxed land borders - it is not Australia who can literally control everything and everyone who comes in. So my question for all the 'lockdown Larrys' who are for more lockdowns and school/business closures is how long do they believe is acceptable? It's already been 1 year, add this year since there is no chance of it going away = 2 years minimum. By that time you will have 70% poverty, kids that can't put their shoes on and a generation of children who are scared of their own shadow and mentally scarred. Sounds great - as long as the rich kids can wake up at 11am and play in their swimming pool all day lol...
I completely agree - the problem is we are not Israel and neither is Brazil. We are dealing with a different beast - Argentina and Brazil are both developing countries with terrible infrastructure and large populations (Brazil primarily). Both experience high rates of poverty which is what this virus attacks the most - the people with the least are the ones who suffer the most. It's just reality - unfortunately there is no good answers but the lesser of two evils.I don’t think it’s a case of needing full lockdowns or closing schools at all.

Take a look at Brazil right now - imagine if that was the new daily reality for the rest of our lives. Society would be a very grim place even without lockdowns due to speed of contagion and thus number of people who get seriously ill as a result (even if only a tiny % of the total) Had a heart attack? Too bad, hospital is full and can’t help. Need to get a deal closed? Too bad, half the office is sick at home.
However if we look at some countries who have been successful with vaccinations and now are seeing the rewards like Israel we see that “normality” is again possible. COVID is and will be still a thing but as long as it is manageable, no one needs to worry about it affecting their day to day. We just need to get to that point.
