    I went to the grocery store less and didn't eat in restaurants. So crazy!
    Same. My wife and I both started walking in the summer. I'm down almost 50lbs since we began. Not eating in restaurants has definitely helped with that. We also go hiking almost every weekend, and have been spending lots more time outdoors.

    My mom had her first hug in over a year the other day when my cousin went to see her. Both were fully vaccinated. It's gonna be nice when that's more common.

    The second part is true, however the EU bought millions of shots from Pfizer that was offered to the US Government but were declined. Its their rollout, not the vaccination production.

    We did not entertain friends (throw parties) for the past year. We stayed out of bars but we did see our elderly parents and we went out to eat. It all worked out great. Our parents did not lose a year of seeing their kids and we lived our lives, all be it a little more carefully. As for people "holed up" I'd say our own Dougdirt qualifies. Based on his messages here at RZ he holed up.

    Vaccine production is a part of it. Many European countries bet on AstraZeneca and got burned:

    Operation Warp speed bet on 6 different vaccines and that was part of the genius of it all. We're now the envy of the world, including Mexico and Canada who asked Biden for vaccines (to which Biden refused).

    Michigan is an excellent real world example of what happens when you have strict C19 rules. Michigan had such rules throughout the holidays and their numbers plummeted but that was not long lasting. All it did was push the wave back and now they're the worst state in the country for C19

    Literally any article can be support for your argument, if you're disingenuous enough.

    Don't go crazy with the Draconian lockdowns. Lockdown only in extreme cases such as when your health system is overwhelmed

    Maybe Ohio is turning the corner. We had 1800 reported cases today; a week ago we had 2400

    What was peak cases per day in other cities that didn't lock down vs the Michigan cities now? Overall are there less people getting it?

    Getting infected with covid isn't inevitable...it's very much preventable.

    This C19 bug is a tough one. It pretty much hit everywhere. I don't know of any state that prevented it. Flatten the curve by definition implied that everyone was going to get hit. It was just a matter of when. Draconian lockdowns did not prove to be beneficial in the long run. States like Texas ands Florida flattened their curve. Michigan just pushed theirs back

    Isn't the benefit that doctors learned how to treat the disease much better, prevented hospitals from being overloaded, and probably prevented lots from getting infected in general, from both preventative measures and now having a much more vaccinated and immune population?

    You don't need draconian measures to accomplish those things. Ohio used more liberal measures than Michigan, but Michigan didn't fare any better.

    Sure. 60K deaths for the year. You bought into that from the go. Your words and there ain't a bit of "I didn't say what I said" shenanigans will wash them off you.

    "...about as deadly as the flu." Also your words.

    Oregon, Maine, and Washington all have done well.
