My friend was feeling well enough for a Zoom chat today. Patient Zero for this event is in the ICU on a vent. So far about 26 people who were at the funeral have been infected, if not more. She has officially tested positive, but has not yet been contacted by the state health department and she was given no guidance on quarantine and isolation measures.I could also just ignore the restrictions, as so many people do, because there is no enforcement. For example, one of my friends was invited to a family party two weeks ago for her niece, who just earned a master's degree. My friend ended up not going because she was sick. A few days later, another family member died of cancer and they held the funeral last weekend. My friend did attend that. It seems to me that the restriction in this case was more of a recommendation, given that there was nothing to stop them from having either event. As it turns out, someone had the crud at the party and thus several someones had the crud at the funeral. My friend is really sick at the moment, but she will likely survive. There are other relatives who might not, as they are pretty high risk. Did they all objectively assess their risk factors and make a considered decision to attend anyway? I find it doubtful, myself, especially for the funeral. But I don't know. I mean, the friend in question lectured me not too long ago because I don't wear a mask when I take the dog for a walk, something I consider pretty much no risk at all. How many of us are actually capable of assessing risk?
Just out of curiosity, how is this bill democratic when the majority of citizens in the state support the governor's actions?Let's take back our power democratically.
It is indeed a Republican-controlled government, with a Republican majority in all branches. But 75-11 is still bipartisan, as the breakdown is 65-33.I had to go away after I read this. I'm still upset, so….. unless you live in Ohio or have relatives who are positive, butt out. What is wrong with you? It's a republican controlled government. I don't know the breakdown, but 75-11 is not bipartisan.

So we the people are essentially irrelevant to all this democracy and should take back control by doing pretty much nothing.It would require the decision to be approved by the legislature in a democratic vote rather than by a governor using executive order.
I think DeWine has been pretty good about presenting all of his evidence, which is certainly of better quality than that of some of the esteemed members of the state legislature.What is the harm of requiring people to present their evidence for evaluation and vote? It can happen quickly, but it must happen.
yes of course. one of our main virologists, Ms Ciesek said that it is unlikely that the ***** was in Italy and that probably an unspecific test that reacts to several different c-oron-a-vi-rruses was responsible. As far as I understood her podcast, the paper is not yet peer-reviewed. (that might be wrong, however, I only listened with one ear while working)Wouldn't you imagine that some lab is already doing this as part of research?
