With the new line drawn in the sand by Dewine of 50 cases per 100K over 2wks, and current level at 179cases/100K....whats your best guess for time frame to meet the goal. And, do your really 5hink it will be business as usual once reached?
1. Reach 50/100K in July '21
2. Masks until mid 2022, but feel they won't completely disappear. I am guessing they will be required if an outside visitor to high risk areas such as nursing homes, hospitals, etc. I can only pray that large public events, whether inside or out, do not require them.
Yeah but heart attacks and cancer are not contagious - eat your wings and stuff and smoke - but covid is so don't slobber on me - dangI mean lets just do the math on it.
There are far too many variables. 50 cases per 100k is only 5,845 cases every two weeks in a state with a population of 11.69 million. The fatality rate by known cases in the US is currently 1.8%. That would be 2,468 yearly deaths at the 50K per 100k mark. To put that in perspective 26,000 Ohioans die from heart disease each year, yet I don't see Dewine destroying his state to make sure everyone gets a ekg and mandate everyone to eat cheerios. Basically he's saying, we will not reopen until the yearly covid death rate is ten times less than the yearly heart disease death rate.
You may be 10 times more likely to die of a heart attack, but dammit you won't get covid on my watch, so keep eating those chicken wings, burgers, and carrying an extra 50 pounds, just make sure to wear a mask and eat outdoors when you do, because we want you to be safe. and pay no attention to the fact that 30% of all cancer deaths in ohio can be attributed to cigarettes, or that 20k per year die from smoking related illness, as long as you're paying that tax per pack we'll look the other way and let you have your freedom, just wear a mask when you have that smoke.
