Test and mistrace

 

NY Post

 The Big Apple’s heavily touted coronavirus tracing program is having trouble tracking down sources of at least 80 percent of the COVID-19 infections in New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio acknowledged Tuesday.

“People want firm, specific answers and, understandably, we would like for things to be clear and neat and that’s just not what the coronavirus usually gives us,” Hizzoner said during his daily briefing. “We just don’t have sites or activities that led to anywhere near the number of cases you would think.”

City health experts have said that roughly 10 percent of infections in the city can be traced back to travel outside of the area, while another 5 to 10 percent of cases can be linked back to individual sources and instances of infection.

But that leaves more than 80 percent of COVID-19 infections without a clear source, a startling new development that is complicating the city’s fight to stave off a second wave of the coronavirus pandemic that’s already sweeping across most other parts of the country.

“The challenge is how diffuse this is. And when it’s this diffuse it isn’t always as simple as, ‘oh, I went to a restaurant or I went to a gym’,” de Blasio added. “A lot of times there isn’t an obvious place because there’s a substantial amount of community spread.”

  Apparently, they haven't been near the Queens County Courthouse in the last 6 months. Or to many speakeasy warehouse raves. Or to any protests/counterprotests. Or dined in any of those new outdoor seating shanties in front of restaurants and bars. Or went to a car rally at a parking lot.

I'm sorry, I really can't take this covid thing seriously when apparently its ok for blm to riot all summer long and people to party in the streets when Biden was elected, but you can't have more then 10 people in your own house for Thanksgiving, or sit at your own desk at work without a mask.

Here’s the thing. People were out in the street with masks at those first things you mentioned. We know now that the transmission rate is different indoors vs outdoors. That’s why there’s emphasis on distancing and wearing a mask even indoors. I’m guessing you don’t know anybody that’s had it or died from it. I’ve known several. Do you know any doctors or nurses who deal with this daily? Ask them about it. Then decide whether it’s a dumb idea to wear a mask indoors. This is not a political issue, although the media makes it seem that way.

No is not just a political issue. Is about a lot more than that.
