Let Them Work

Aerial footage above South Florida shows hundreds of residents risking possible coronavirus exposure — lining up to get paper applications for unemployment benefits as the state tries to fix problems with online filing. https://t.co/GkN9NmnHCl https://t.co/S3kHYbjFRJ

The people in the video are clearly responsible, good folks. It’s time to start letting them go to work. If it’s ok to let them crowd for unemployment benefits, it’s got to be ok to let them work.

  1. From a TV interview w/ Dr. Birx:
    “It’s a very important piece because it looks at degree of exposure and really making it clear that exposure occurs within six feet for more than 15 minutes,” Birx said. (from a story on Mediaite about the interview)

    So am I reading this right? Do I generally have to be close to an infected person for about 15 minutes at least in order to get the infection myself?

    1. That’s really good news then. And it explains why the medical personnel gets infected at such high rates.

      It’s really time to start relaxing the quarantine.

      1. It would be good news, if it’s true. I don’t know what to think. This is the first and only time I’ve heard any reference to a time length before you can get infected.

        I continue to worry, however, because so much of this seems to be a question of luck. Some people get the virus and have very mild symptoms, as we know, and then others get it and get very, very sick. I’m the age of Amy Klobuchar’s husband, who has recovered from it, but he had to spend about 5 days in the hospital.
