So, I'll say it again: If shopping at a grocery store is a sig vector of transmission, then the self-quarantining and physical distancing were useless.
That isn't exactly how transmission works. It's percentage and odds game. If I am going to work every single day in an office with the same people and one of them gets it, then the odds of my getting it dramatically increase because of the time I am exposed to them. As does everyone else in my office. I talk to betty every single day, I touch the same shit she touches multiple times a day, etc. etc. It's why we see in factories it's not just one person that gets it, but a whole bunch.
If all I doing is going to the market once a week, my exposure is much more limited. My contact with people much more limited. Etc. My odds of getting a dose of the virus that will make me sick is much lower. And if I get it, the amount of people I expose is much lower.
Gov. Cuomo issued outlines for opening up today. Basically it's a strategy for what to do until there's a vaccine in 12-18 months.
!! He gave a good outline of what's necessary, why there is a ton of work to do, and why the feds have to be heavily involved.
: He gave a list of treatments to be optimistic about but that still need clinical studies such as Hydroxychloriquine.
3. Matrix for opening
: Prioritize things that are more essential and things that have limited transmission vectors. He didn't get into details but I suspect that elective surgeries, landscapers, and businesses where people can stay >6' away will go first. Restaurants and bars could go later or implement procedures to limit transmission.
: When people can't be 6' away from others they need to wear a mask. Alone on the street or in your car = no mask, on the bus or at a crowded pedestrian intersection = mask. Very broad outlines as to what counts as a mask but it's an executive order. At this time there are no penalties for not following the order.
