    Am I the only one?

    Call me insensitive, but how do we expect to build immunity to this pandemic if were not exposing ourselves to it? What if this virus evolves into a stronger strain? It will be so much worse than it is now with the fear, anxiety, lack of knowledge and social distancing if were just hiding from it. You cant build any sort of immunity to a virus/disease that can potentially evolve into something far worse if youre not exposed to it. If this **** really started in animals, was passed to humans, and can be transmitted back and forth, what else can it do if it gets stronger itself?

    No, there are plenty of people that misguidedly believe as you've written.

    We develop an immunity when they develop a vaccine to vaccinate people. Or we may not develop immunity.

    Some people have gotten re-infected after having it. They dont know for sure if having it confers immunity and if it does, for how long. For SARS it's only for 2-3 yrs.

    and how do you protect all the at-risk people then? The elderly, the persons with suppressed immune systems, etc? Do you just let them die?

    We are trying to hold down the curve of infections because our healthcare system can not handle this bug, for many reasons, to include the lack of PPE and drugs, which tend to be made in China and in the case of drugs India as well.

    Once we have a treatment and proper supplies then we need to try to salvage the economy.

    I dont think it will matter, I smell the depression already here.

    This was a massive failure of our leaders and elites.

    And now we pay for that.
    We are so screwed....ANNOUNCEMENT: Screwing Around Time is Officially Over.....It has to be.

    No, you're not the only one. Oi vey. Please stay in your ****ing house.

    I want to know, before I go to the trouble of explaining this to you. Are you actually going to listen to me or are you going to write off everything I say as fear mongering or some ill defined conspiracy theory?

    You're not the only sane one left, but you're one of the few.

    Feel free to infect yourself then. Just stay away from everyone that doesn't want it.

    Why would it evolve into a stronger strain if people are avoiding it? The virus evolves if people build up an immunity to it. So, you kind of have a ****ed up argument going here, Daqueef.

    One of the most common ways to develop a vaccine is for people to get immunity from the virus and use their antibodies.
