Funny but serious question how come we never social distanced, dressed up silly and acted silly for the flu? I mean if the point is not to infect others and cause deaths why didn't we?

People DID socially distance before the flu vaccine.

 

In 1918:

Early implementation of certain interventions, including closure of schools, churches, and theaters, was associated with lower peak death rates

Cities in which multiple interventions were implemented at an early phase of the epidemic also showed a trend toward lower cumulative excess mortality

These findings support the hypothesis that rapid implementation of multiple NPIs can significantly reduce influenza transmission, but that viral spread will be renewed upon relaxation of such measures.

People DID wear masks for the flu before the flu vaccine.

As for acting silly, well, our society doesn't need a pandemic to act silly.

 

People did everything you asked before the flu vaccine. And that's the stage we're at right now with covid, pre-vaccine. So we are doing it again to keep the mortality rate as low as we can.

How come China welded their citizens doors shut to keep them quarantined? How come people died on hospital floors and in the streets when the hospitals were overrun? How come they had to build massive make shift hospitals to take care of the overflow? Nobody knows? It's a complete freakin mystery?

 

You're a proponent of welding people in their homes? Hitler did that to his undesirables and then set a match to it. I think China did that so people didn't protest, remember tenement square? Remember Mau? They were trying to hide the outbreak from the world for 6 weeks remember? These people wore  those masks for years, you think they wore those because they don't care about their or anyone else's lives? To use the Chinese government to prove your point is frankly infuriating. They lied to the WHO for 6 weeks and killed the early whistleblowers. You think Communism is good? I'm not saying the virus isn't real or there isn't a threat. Just pointing out why the Chinese government has proven themselves to be untrustworthy.

Yes, we have our fair share of ignorant pr@&$s here in Canada, for sure.  The States have 10X as many, so they're far more visible. 

 

America...please dump Trump in 2020!

I like what Jordan Peterson said on the Bill Maher show. Went right over their heads. Another thing, why are people being political agitators of a country they don't even live in? Especially one that seems on the brink of civil war. Half their country are trump supporters, right or wrong.
