So what happened? When states reopened to try to save the economy, the fate of this pandemic shifted from government orders to personal responsibility.
However, many do not fulfill this responsibility, but leave their bail very early due to popular misunderstandings:
Herd immunity generally occurs when 70% to 90% of the population becomes immune to an infectious disease – either because humans are infected and recovering, or because they have been vaccinated.
There is also no cure for the corano novel. So the only way to control this deadly pandemic is through personal behavior – such as staying 6 meters away from others, including social settings, and wearing a face mask.
“It’s crucial that we all take personal responsibility for slowing down the transmission of Covid-19 and embracing the universal use of face masks,” said Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
I’m young and healthy, so I’m not worried
“Specifically, I’m addressing the youngest members of our society, the millennia, and Generation Z’s,” Redfield said, asking for face masks. “I ask those who hear to spread the word.”
In Florida, the average age group for those infected in March was people in their 60s. But in recent weeks, that average age has fallen to young adults in the early 1930s, Governor Ron Desanti said in late June.
During their night out, the virus appeared “out of sight, out of mind” because they did not know anyone who had been infected, Crisp said. The group also had a false sense of security, he said, because the governor told them it was safe to reopen.
“I am just happy to be free. It’s too early, “Kripps said.
A few days before his diagnosis, Gobert had shed light on the pandemic when he taunted every microphone during a press conference.
He later apologized publicly and urged the public not to fall into a false sense of security as he did.
We check the temperatures of all employees / customers / guests at a party
I don’t need to wear a mask
“As economies open up, masks become more important, no less important,” said Jeremy Howard, a researcher at the University of San Francisco.
Howard has spent many of the last four months in Texas, where he noticed that the use of a face mask fell as the state began to reopen.
American surgeon Dr. Jerome Adams said if you want more businesses to reopen and stay open, wear a mask.
“Facial covers → less asymptomatic viral spread → more places open and earlier! Practice and promote your freedom by choosing to wear a face mask!”
The death rate is declining, so things are getting better, right?
“Our daily incidence / infection rate has risen to over 40,000,” said Dr. Jonathan Reiner, a professor at George Washington University School of Medicine.
First, deaths from Covid-19 often delay weeks after new infections. It may take up to two weeks for symptoms to appear. After that, people may not be tested immediately. Then it may take even longer for serious cases to be treated.
“It takes about a week after someone becomes infected until they get sick enough to be treated, and often about a week after that until you start to see death,” Reiner said.
“We have a kind of plateau with a mortality rate of between 600 and 800 deaths a day. … Obviously, everyone is worried about the death rate starting to rise again.”
With current transmission rates, “we will reach 100,000 cases a day” in the US, said internal medicine specialist Dr. Jorge Rodriguez.
With this virus, “one person – on average – infects three people and we already have 40,000” new cases reported daily, Rodriguez said on Tuesday.
I’ve already tried negatives, so I’m fine
There is no excuse to stop taking precautions.
“Because it is possible to have a negative result even when you have corona, it is important to be careful even when you get a negative result.”
Even if a negative test result is correct, you may be infected since the test was performed.
Maybe we should let nature follow its course and take the immunity of the herds
It’s not a good idea, because some intensive care units already have the capability or are approaching, Rodriguez said.
And that could reduce the need for care for anyone else – such as car crash victims or people with heart attacks.
“People are admitted to hospital beds and admitted to ICU (intensive care unit) beds faster than they are discharged,” said Coronain, said Will Humble, executive director of the Arizona Public Health Association.
Humble said it was concerned that hospitals would become “standard of care”, meaning “lower care for everyone, not just people with Covid-19”.
But the CDC’s director said everyone could help stop this deadly pandemic. It just takes personal responsibility.
“We have powerful tools at our disposal – social distances, wearing a face mask in public and being disciplined for frequent hand washing,” Redfield said.
“We are not defenseless against this disease.”
