What a great way to frame things for those seniors.

Sorry seniors, you're going to have to stay in isolation with no human contact, we'll treat your suicidal feelings eventually, because otherwise you're going to 100% get a violent pneumonic reaction and die.

Make sure you watch lots of CNN, never question what you are told, and DON'T work towards strengthening your immune system, that's dangerous misinformation.

 

Okay I think I got it guys. Makes sense.

as opposed to the "have fun drowning in your own fluids, with your only human contact being someone in a hazmat suit while your friends and family can only watch yoiu die on facetime?

 

Pretty sure I know what I'd pick

Did you post misinformation? Or perhaps other posters on here? 

I've corrected people many times, I don't claim that what they were spreading was dangerous. It's a discussion.

I've also sourced my statements more than others have on here as well.


This seems more like I'm being attacked for not having the correct opinion.

No, I certainly did not.

 

Your information IS dangerous, so focus there. 

 

I've pointed out where some of your statements are false (that one being one of them..."rare" is not "can't") and you're not an expert on COVID.  So don't speak in fact and statements.  You won't just ward off or recover from COVID because you're fit.  And a lockdown that kills "businesses" is worth it if it "saves lives".

Suicide was here long before covid and will be here long after....it's tragic and to those suffering, there's help out there.  Please reach out for it.  We're all struggling but it's for a greater good and helping us get to a safer time and place.  Those pushing against that are simply delaying the agony in it all by keeping the numbers high and the response to that drastic.   And those using it as an excuse to NOT pitch in...I find that deplorable.  They're looking after self interest, no one else's. 

 

We all can band together and lessen the impact if we focus on being safe out there.  And protecting one another by doing everything asked of us to get this thing under control

Of the active cases we have right now, there is a 99.4% chance of having a mild condition.

Meaning there is a 0.6% chance of possibly experiencing something like that.

With effective therapeutics available, that chance would go way down.

What "effective therapeutics"?  I'm curious. 

 

My Dad, in his 80's, wants to know.  Doc.

I never once claimed to have all the answers, I was just looking for a discussion.

Oh well, sorry, I'll just leave because my ideas are dangerous. We wouldn't want to have a discussion on all of the factors in play.

A very welcoming and open-minded community we have here.

Have a good day.

The odds of winning the lottery are much lower than 0.6% but people are still winning every week.

I never once claimed you did ... but the answers you did claim to have were false information.  And, therefore, dangerous.

 

So it's likely best if you do find a way to communicate your opinion as only that.  We strive to have all the factors in play, which is how the discussion unfolded.  Sadly, it failed to support the ideas you brought in.

 

The scientific and health experts are the ones we should be listening to ...  it's ok to challenge that, but bring facts, references and not just statements.

OK, now for a real scenario. Imagine not being able to visit your otherwise “spry” grandmother when she decides to kill herself rather than be locked down again. 
https://www.google.ca/amp/s/beta.ctvnews.ca/national/health/2020/11/19/1_5197140.html

I get the need to protect people, but there is a point where it’s going to far. I for one would rather accept some risk (not fighting over masks, sanitizing etc) close some non essential things as needed but will fight for my right to see my family. Too far in either direction is simply wrong. 

Thing is....bring your family home then.  Have them with you.

 

Because if they are in "a facility", it's about the others in there too.  You bring in covid and they may get it.  So it's about protecting everyone by the numbers, even if it does have some very unfortunate casualties.  And homes often so...not everyone's happy to be in there, let's not overlook that.  COVID's highlighting some problems that were already there.

 

So do you protect one person who can't cope anymore or the other 120 who are fighting to keep going?  

 

Care homes will always have people who are depressed and, sadly, even suicidal.  Because some are dumped in there and isolated at the best of times, not just the worst. People have to be creative in how they "see" each other right now....there are sources to do so.  My friend whose mother is 90 goes to the home and stands outside the window.  Not ideal...but something.  We all have to do things differently and there's no escaping that.

 

It's not an easy situation but you have to do what's best for the majority of the people...which is prevent the spread of this however possible.  Homes are hotspots...so that's a sad reality in it all.

people are so over stating the suicide risk, especially compared to the risk of the virus when it gets into a facility.  It's a complete no brainer

And I'd guess that even in the best of times, this is an issue. 

 

Loneliness and isolation in seniors isn't something COVID's creating....it's simply elevating it.

OK, I cited a source for my comment...you say “but you’re wrong!!!” Regardless of what you believe there are cases in schools, and a lot of them. How do you explain the theory that they are not being transmitted there?  Does your argument hold more weight if you wrote it in ALL CAPS? Please explain to me how schools are safe and masks are not required in a classroom please 

Citing the Provincial Health Officer of BC. Schools are NOT a major source of transmission of Covid-19.

Also where are we at with asymptomatic people being able to spread the virus? First it was they could spread it then it was less likely.

 

Would they even be testing kids who are asymptomatic?

So just to clarify...no source of anything?  I provided a valid source of MANY cases in schools. See I can use caps too.  Your opinion is equally valid as mine but does not make it a fact. I have stats to prove a very low (0 cases in fact) of transmission in my house yet it’s closed. Please explain why so many things are closed while schools remain open?  Children are absolutely not following the protocols around cohorts, masks Or sanitizing. If we are so concerned about everyone’s health they should be closed too. Why is my health being risked over this. We have proven that children can be educated online too.

Picture myself stuck in isolation, feeling suicidal because I can't go out or see my family or friends? Yeah it sounds miserable.

Maybe lockdowns aren't the answer? Oh sorry, I'm not allowed to question that. Never mind.

we're not in a lockdown. There are lots of ways to see people safely.

not to mention transmitting it to people who will die horrible deaths, isolated form the people they love and who love them.  To spout garbage about herd immunity is the epitome of narcissistic behaviour

His name is Tystick.....more like Dipstick! Just another super selfish / super ignorant person posting /spewing a bunch of garbage. I don't even have the energy to argue with him...and whole comparing illnesses / viruses thing again...i can't even...
