Staying at home
I really don't have a problem with Italy doing that because of where they are today. But they were they are today because they didn't take the ***** seriously at first and really self-isolate for 2-3 weeks then it was first clear that the ***** was all over the world and not just in China. They screwed up, IMO.Louis’ argument isn’t really about who is deserving but who has the greatest chance of a good long term outcome. IIUC, ethicists in Italy consented to the “less likely to treat those over 80” rule. They presumable picked that over the first come first serve rule.
And I really have a problem with someone who downplayed the ***** from day one, who went on vacation to Italy when it was on partial lockdown (and should have been on full lock-down) now saying that we're handling this situation all wrong because we are prioritizing old people over businesses.
If we are going to prioritize some patients over others, then I say people like @Louis should be put in the back of the line because those are the people who made this situation much worse than it had to be.
How's that for being cold?
What does it matter?But their numbers will count in the Montgomery County count. Two days from now, if they said 50 people today tested positive in Montgomery County, that probably will not be people all from Montgomery County.
