    Are you denying that the more that social distancing is enforced, the fewer the cases? By following those strong steps right from the start, social distancing would be much greater and the number of cases would be far fewer in my opinion.

    Educated guess by whom? Cause it sure seems anyone can throw out a guess based on what they feel would happen. Without data to collaborate it, that guess doesn't mean much of anything.

    Yeah I’m denying it, because there’s not a single model that shows that. If you want to put yourself in the camp that thinks the stricter the measures taken, the shorter the duration of the outbreak, you’ll have plenty of company.

    Here's the thing though. In this case, messaging does matter. Conveying the right level of emphasis on this issue matters. She could have instituted a stay at home order that does exactly what the current orders have 2 weeks ago and it would have been more effective because it comes across as an order and not just a suggestion to average people. We're seeing it in the mobility data, when you compare us to MN\IL who have those orders, where theyve seen greater decreases than here. And it makes no sense why she wouldnt've just taken the more effective route.

    No I don't have data to collaborate it but I'm trying to use logic based on social distancing.

    Maybe she wants to take a drink every time she hears SIP.

    Okay, since you're denying it then I don't know what else to tell you. I'm not saying the duration will be shorter but only that the number of cases and deaths would be smaller. There will likely be cases into next year but by then there will likely be a reliable therapeutic drug (probably this summer) and a vaccine by early next year. Maybe others will chime in on this argument.

    Also, have you seen what has been happening in Washington State which was the first to report any cases? That governor acted quickly and took very strong measures.

    In Wisconsin, they had to be postmarked today or sooner. I ordered mine two weeks ago and didn't receive it so those folks screwed that part up.

    There was a push to have the vote delayed because of this whole 'global pandemic of a disease that could kill anyone' thing like other states but it didn't happen.

    So, people had to gather in small spaces inside and get their ballots from workers during a pandemic if they wanted to do something like vote in an election in America.

    I'll leave it at that.

    Because this thread has moved from being awesome the first 150 pages to the past 150 being an endless recycling of the exact same 5 or 6 posts, I've started a new thread for those of us that want good conversation without politics, SIP, etc crap on loop.

    Those of you that want to talk about light politics, SIP, essential vs non-essential, etc - this is now your thread (since it turned into that anyways).

    You don't actually think state demographics have changed in 3 weeks do you?

    I assure you, it was not 'awesome' in the way you define it the first 150 pages.

    You think people are just dropping over? It takes days and days before you even get symptoms. Seriously, the closer this gets to home the less worried I become.

    The disscussion is repeating because there is pretty much no new news. It's the same thing now everyday.

    How stupid do you have to be to not understand people die in wilderness areas?
