If people had any sense, they would avoid contact and proximity to others, just like they do when someone has another communicable disease, but they don't think this will affect them. The ones who can't avoid it (first responders, care givers, etc) are the ones I'm worried about- the Spring Breakers and others who congregate in large groups in the face of the warnings are idiots and can kiss my ass. Should we really need to be told what to do every time something is poised to kill us? I don't think so, but I guess you think it's OK for people to sit on their butts and wait for instructions.\n\nYou should stop assuming what I think because you'll never get it right. ;) That said, I am in total agreement with you about people not taking this seriously. But there are many who believe every word that Trump says. (Blame those who elected him in. ) As the nation's leader, he has the moral obligation to look after his people. He had the oppertunity to act preventatively much earlier on but he chose to ignore the plain facts and is even late in reacting reactively.
