Not sure what to do? Isolation, masks and distancing all work, take a look at New York State's curve, went up and came all the way back down, the Nation as a whole has gone up and stayed up, why? You gotta be committed I think? And I don't believe that most of us were?? Now what?..........self preservation I guess.......joe

How on Earth did you reach that conclusion?

We were never once on a complete nationwide lockdown. Not even close.

My dad used to get sick from an allergy called hay fever - knocked him for a loop
Many people also get ill from the release of pollen in the air every spring

Both were seasonal things that passed
Covid-19 apparently isn’t - is the testing process monitored regularly? Could they be picking up symptoms of other maladies that cause tests that should be negative, positive? Is The Testing System Flawed?

So what happens now?
America is closed for business, having learned nothing from March-present
Let’s just not put her up for auction to the highest bidder, ie outside govts w/unAmerican ideas
That’s where we’re headed imho

Some states late to close and early to open.

Too many people thinking this is not that big a deal comparing it to the flu or believing it has been overstated. Too many people thinking it impairs their rights. Too many people thinking they are beyond catching this.

Too many people in denial by listening to a leader who hasn't led on this and who dragged on initial response and also basically saw this as a states' issue and dangled funds & PPE.

I'm afraid it gets worse before it gets better.

The stats speak for themselves. No amount of denials nor rhetoric can overcome the metrics. Unlike the president, you can't wish this away or wake up one morning and it will be gone.

High school, colleges, businesses, restaurants
Stuff like Broadway shows, college/pro sports, much-anticipated annual events, everywhere

The impact was huge around where I live, it took/is still taking a lot of adapting

May not have been as much so elsewhere, I certainly never read anything to that effect tho

Mayb “massive changes” instead of “complete lockdown” is the better way to put it - the effort was not negligible tho

If it was that, an effort that was “not even close” to a full-measure response, I only shudder to think of what further ones might entail

We didn't lockdown as Italy, China, or even Spain.

But, I digress.

Let's discuss "nothing."

Case ramped up, things got shutdown, the cases declined, open back up, cases back up.

So, the clear decline in cases was...nothing?

Every region had different responses to different infection rates at different times. Now we are seeing different attempts at reopening based on those responses. In some places it appears to be working, others not as much.

A friend of mine in Phoenix needs surgery on a condition affecting her lungs is moving to Atlanta because Arizona is currently getting slammed with cases and can't schedule her soon enough or guarantee a safe hospital for recovery.

You shut down, economy goes to hell but fewer positive test results
Open back up, trade/commerce reactivates - & so do positive results

To address your concern about “did nothing”
Most people have worn masks, stayed 6 feet apart, used hand sanitizer etc throughout this whole thing

CONUNDRUM
We “progressed” (shut down economy, stayed home, quarantined etc)
Now “regressed” (started to return to normalcy only to see test results go haywire)

Spin it any way you want, am just saying that IF these current test #s are accurate, the past 3 months have done nothing -
Because Nothing Can Be Done

Recent headline read “Covid 19 Has America On Its Knees”
That it does

the states that re opened were not on the way down as they were opening. They didn't meet the CDC and WH recommended guidelines.
In NH and MA they waited for cases to go down before re opening. People are still wearing masks and being careful (for now).
Hopefully, we will have better results.

These morons will be the first to admit they were wrong if they catch it. Am afraid reality will have to smack them in the face before they come off of the hoax mentality.

How you figure? Does Covid19 grant the power of self-reflection and rational lucidity while eliminating bigotry and ignorance? If so, this pandemic is a blessing:

Indeed, they were opening the very next day after the federal guidelines were announced, of course they all opened right then without meeting ANY of the guidelines?? I know we look stupid Worldwide, but that's not the point, certainly Trump and his followers don't mind looking stupid, but the real problem is, 121,00 Americans are dead and a lot more of us are gonna be sick and die soon. This is directly thanks to Trump and me and You and every other swingin dick in America, (Gina our one Lady, still hanging in?) We all knew since about March 12th, that this was a nasty damn virus and a lot of frickin US Citizens was in real jeopardy...........we phucked.........joe

Why you and me - we are doing all we can - my mask and social distance are happily adopted lifetime habits. I dont go out for other than essentials. I know you are cautious too, also most of our brighter posters. Are you just doing that blame all so the guilty don't feel singled out thing?

More tests = More infections that are going to show up. Was it not both the W.H.O. & the C.D.C. who stated that you could be a carrier and not even be aware? So, which is it?...A killer?...or something that just shows up in tests continuing to be fodder for a media intent on scaring the Sh*t out of people. I believe we should be keeping our eyes on the mortality rate and when that % climbs to a number that is genuinely concerning and not the less than 1.4% nation wide, I will take notice.

Dont mind me , I'll just be wearing a mask and keeping distance, seen enough; don't need any more news reports or graphs - this is just the beginning of the superbug era.

Ive been following the increase in Arizona since I have friends all over there - Sedona just followed Flagstaff and Tempe and other cities, issued mandatory mask order today:

No mask order where I live, but I wish there were. Folks running around like nothing's wrong.

Good point.

I'm realizing we should listen to the doubters and deniers who question science, metrics, & epidemiologists.

If you have pre existing conditions or your're elderly, it is indeed a killer. Remember before the lockdown and you had a smug post about how this was just another scare like Swine Flu, Sars or Ebola? Guess that was dead wrong

Like Trump, he really has a knack for these things, when he talks to the doctors they are amazed by how much he knows about these things, they say hey you should have went into medicine.
