So the trifold increase in cases is due to the low transmission rate??
I've been enjoying watching the lifestylers / vloggers who are soooo concerned and critical of Disney for not having more strict mandates of distancing and mask wearing enforcement for everybody's safety, yet they are in the Parks so they can get those views on social media and get paid. Such compassion for "everybody's" safety. Smh.
It gets easier when you increase interactions and infections...I'm looking for context within the case numbers because we literally don't know. They could all be explained by EXTREMELY close contact versus casual. It's important and the studies stated that it's much harder to transmit among strangers (like many other viruses). Let's get a closer look at this transmission. If it takes time, fine. I just hope they share what they are finding.
Tim Tracker and his wife seemed very hesitant to visit any theme parks back when Florida wasn't having a spike like this but he's been going and went to Disney. He seems to have resorted to family vlogs during the shut down. Is there that much pressure on Disney vloggers to go when it opens?
I don't watch much of his content, but a quick perusal of his YouTube videos shows that Disney videos from four months ago were in the +200k view range. The family vlogs were 50-130k views. Videos from park reopenings took him right back up to +200k.
He probably gets a bit over $100 per every 100k views, so yeah, videos at the parks make him significantly more money.
Where I live at least, the public message coming from the governor and the state department of health was "flatten the curve". The goal was to prevent too many people from contracting COVID-19 at the same time and not having enough hospital beds/ventilators/doctors/nurses/etc. to accommodate them. Unless a vaccine is developed, the virus will spread. Given the number of people who have tested positive with few or no symptoms, you or a family member may have already had it.
I happened to notice that he was at Disney after or very close to when we started gearing up for shut downs. I think there are valid points on every side of this but can we all agree that pearl clutching about others going to Disney and then going yourself is cringe?
Wait, I'm confused. Who's pearl clutching and then going to the park openings? Tracker? Doesn't he have a newborn at home?
I have absolutely zero issues with vloggers/influencers making money whether it's for Disney or unboxing a pack of Irish Spring soap.Tim Tracker and his wife seemed very hesitant to visit any theme parks back when Florida wasn't having a spike like this but he's been going and went to Disney. He seems to have resorted to family vlogs during the shut down. Is there that much pressure on Disney vloggers to go when it opens? I wouldn't know. I watch them selectively. That guy from Dis Unplugged seemed pretty skittish about covid when UO opened but he's been there a lot and went to Disney last week too. I could even see the Disney sparkle in his eye despite the mask
We have more ventilators than we could ever need in fact we send them to other countries. We have PPE, and the hospitals have done a great job preparing and are handling the surges very well. Thank you very much.The other major point of flattening the curve was to produce more PPE and, most importantly, to develop a plan for dealing with the crisis in the medium- and long-term. We did not do that. Until we are willing to get serious, be consistent about messaging, and develop a plan, periodic lockdowns will be necessary.
maybe your hospital is handling it well, but if you look outside of your own circle you would see that there are plenty of hospitals suffering. Staff shortages, only allocated one PPE gown per day, nurses are still having to use one N95 for their entire shift, and many hospitals in surge states are beginning to double up rooms. Thats not success.We have more ventilators than we could ever need in fact we send them to other countries.

I read a (ten page long) Instagram post from a very popular lifestyler who has been reaping the benefits and non stop flooding his/her social media for the last week with absolute excitement to back at Disney Springs last week and attending CM preview ,AP Preview, and opening day preview at MK. All of his/her posts over the last few days were nothing but excitement and happiness to finally be back, but this evening, they posted a full ten page post on how they won't be returning due to their concern for safety and Florida being a hot spot.
Like I said, look outside of your own circle.At least you admit it you have no idea.
