Why in the HECK are our lives totally turned upside down for something that has 1% morbidity.

One percent of ninety five million people is quite a lot of deaths.

To say nothing of complications and long term side effects.

Because we believe everyone's life is valuable.
Because there's long term affects from COVID that are detrimental.

When millions of people get the disease, that one percent translates into lots of deaths. One percent of a million is ten thousand. Every country that keeps statistics is recording excess deaths this year. In October 2020, for example, Israel recorded 960 more deaths than in October 2019. That's an increase of 26 percent. In the United States, there were 400,000 more deaths than in a normal year, an increase of about 18 percent. England saw 80,000 excess deaths.

Also, even for those who don't die, many are sick enough to need hospital care. That stresses the health care system, and can even cause deaths in rare cases where there just isn't enough staff to tend to all patients.

It's hard to live with restrictions. The question is how to balance restrictions with saving lives.

Oh yes. The hospitals in Israel are overloaded that they aren't accepting new patients. Surgeries are being pushed off. If someone falls or hs a heart attack they won't neccesarily get medical care at all or right away since there is no one to treat them.

Because if your young husband was that 1%, you would be devastated and your life would be over.
Because thyroid cancer has a 98% survival rate and no one here would choose to get it.
Because people died (see ywn yesterday) when medical personnel can’t care for them, because there are so many sick people.

These posts are so ridiculous and naive. Look on Facebook for Covid long hauler groups. See how many millions of people had covid months and months ago and still can’t return to normal. Look how many people have permanent lung or heart damage or developed other conditions since getting Covid.
It’s not just about the death rate. Be glad you don’t understand from personal experience.
I had Covid almost 3 months ago. I still can’t even take care of my baby on my own. My husband has had to shift his whole work schedule to be around most of the day. My breathing is still bad, etc.

Also a simple google search would tell you that COVID DOES NOT have a 99% recovery rate for anyone over the age of 18.

The 99% recovery rate thing came from a number Trump made up.

Because for many people, "recovery" does not mean a return to pre-Covid baseline health. Some people (including me) will never be the same again.

Because THIS still happens, and it could be YOU. It could be any of us.

https://jewishmom.com/2021/01/.....tion/

I saw my friend had forwarded me a heartbreaking video, a young father pleading with us to pray and do good deeds in the merit of his wife (Rochel Naomi bat Esther Chana, daughter of Rabbi Wieden from Neve Yerushalayim) a mother of 5 in her early thirties who is critically ill from Covid. She was pregnant and underwent an emergency C-section, and now her 6th child whom she was carrying is in critical condition as well (Rach haNolad ben Rochel Naomi).
The light at the end of the tunnel so close and yet so very far away. Please Hashem, save us and protect us all.

So why are states and cities opening up? Every life is valuable. We should all stay inside until this is over.

That’s what my simple google search came up with.
Recovery rate is between 97%-99.75%

I’m speaking for the USA, I live here so I can’t talk for other countries:

In the beginning Covid was out of hand.
We all locked down willingly.
We were all diligent about the rules.

After a few months, while every death and every side effect is still terrible, it became more and more obvious how much of this is politicized.
It’s a year later, the country is in shambles, some cities more extreme than others, and yes, I have to say that more lives are ruined from the year of government control, than from Covid itself.
And we are nowhere near finished.

So op, without mentioning the 99 recovery rate, yes, your question is very valid.

The rules don’t make sense.
Casinos, packed airplanes, theaters, all ok.

Stores, shuls, gyms, restaurants, schools nope.

Unfortunately u are right. In regions where they did that ( Asia, New Zealand) they did much better in yankee doodle dollars and freedom loving places not so much.

I was in the hospital for an Iv infusion yesterday. I cannot get images of the people I saw as I passed the triage/ we out of my head. It was devastating. Too many 1%

The measurement we are looking for at this point is what % of flu hospitalization rates does the world have yearly vs what percent of covid hospitalization rates do we have at hand. Any other measurements make absolutely no sense unless you are selling something.

And I do not think any of those numbers are published at all even though they would be the easiest to tally and most accurate.

1% is a lot! It also doesn’t account for all of the miscarriages and stillbirths.
And there are long term effects that can ultimately lead to even more deaths.

Remember that "recovered" is just another way of saying "congratulations, you're not dead."

Long-Term Effects of COVID-19
Updated Nov. 13, 2020

The most commonly reported long-term symptoms include:

Fatigue
Shortness of breath
Cough
Joint pain
Chest pain

Other reported long-term symptoms include:

Difficulty with thinking and concentration (sometimes referred to as “brain fog”)
Depression
Muscle pain
Headache
Intermittent fever
Fast-beating or pounding heart (also known as heart palpitations)
More serious long-term complications appear to be less common but have been reported. These have been noted to affect different organ systems in the body.

These include:

Cardiovascular: inflammation of the heart muscle
Respiratory: lung function abnormalities
Renal: acute kidney injury
Dermatologic: rash, hair loss
Neurological: smell and taste problems, sleep issues, difficulty with concentration, memory problems
Psychiatric: depression, anxiety, changes in mood
The long-term significance of these effects is not yet known. CDC will continue active investigation and provide updates as new data emerge, which can inform COVID-19 clinical care as well as the public health response to COVID-19.

Preventing COVID-19
The best way to prevent these long-term complications is to prevent COVID-19. The best strategies for preventing COVID-19 infection in youth and adults are to wear a mask in public places, stay at least 6 feet away from other people, frequently wash your hands, and avoid crowds and confined or poorly ventilated spaces.

There isn't enough science to back it yet, because this is all too new, but from experiences of people close to me, Covid can have a negative affect on the cycle of a women. Hopefully it's not long term but no one knows yet and won't have long term fertility affects.

There is also a higher rate of pre mature births among women with Covid.

That's not possible. People need money, food, medicine, roads, dentists, jobs, etc....

Its not possible to stay inside. The economy would collapse, no one would afford food, there wouldn't be truckers to get food to supermarkets or cashiers in supermarkets, people wouldnt be able to afford Healthcare and more people would die.

We need to balance how to run the country, have most people working, not have the economy crash safety during a pandemic.
