    Trump announces 30-day extension of coronavirus guidelines

    Trump announces 30-day extension of coronavirus guidelines - Axios

    President Trump announced on Sunday that his administration will extend its "15 Days to Slow the Spread" guidelines until April 30 in an effort to stop the spread of coronavirus, which has now infected more than 130,000 Americans and killed nearly 2,500.
    I guess we're off the Easter thing then. Which is probably good.

    Perhaps. But we can't stay on lock-down forever.

    People need to earn a living. Food has to be harvested and processed. Businesses have to get back to business. Trade has to start again.

    It all might have to come down to "herd immunity."

    At some point, risk or no risk, we need to get back to as normal as we can achieve under the circumstances.

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    It hasn't been all bad. Grocery stores are still doing ok, and cashiers are finally getting some of the respect they deserve. Now if we can just get them a permanent pay raise, we'll have made some real progress.

    If people obey the rules then yes we can achieve that. It is up to the people to do the right thing.

    Food production is continuing. My son who is a QA for a major food production plant was issued a badge identifying him employed in an Essential Business to allow him to be on the road at this time.

    The plant is working overtime at this point.

    Yes, we need to get back to normal but for now lets trust the epidemiologists.

    I agree we can't do it forever, but I think putting an artifucial timeline on it is unwise.

    How do you think that the groceries show up on the shelves?

    Hardly. Schools were scheduled to be closed through April 3. That just changed that too. But since you are so bright, well-informed and the first to know, please give me that specific date when these guidelines will expire and that date when you expect to see commerce begin again. Thanks.

    We have never once gained herd immunity without vaccinations. It would require a 96% infection rate.

    I know this one of the official talking points, but it's wrong.
