The lack of ICU/hospital beds is a real issue. Unfortunately one of my hospitals is severely impacted with numerous COVID admissions that are holding in the ER for days. There are no ICU beds and the overflow units are full. The backup is causing high levels of ER diversion. Things are going to get a lot worse before getting better. Please wear your mask, social distance, and stay safe.

Sometimes I wonder how many people need to die before mask-deniers take things seriously.

Of course, that one has  be in their immediately family or close circle of friends and have absolutely no health issues, because you know, Bob has issues.

Is it just mask deniers though? Are mask deniers the only ones getting together at home for the various holidays? I can’t imagine only the mask deniers are causing this ICU issue.

Frankly I kind of appreciate the dumbass standing on the table.  I honestly would rather have another shopper boldly not wearing a mask, I can stear clear and cross too many like last week, decide its time to go.

Avoiding the compliant non-maskers, you know the ones with a mask, but got to pull it down to yack on the phone in the store, or walk through the store jerking their mask up and down like a yo-yo so they can drink their starbucks.  Or walking around with their nose hanging out. Or Mr I have to touch a half dozen cartons before I find the pick the one I want.

jIMHO, they're far more damaging.  They think they're being safe, but they're chronically touches public stuff, then thier face and their masks over and over and over.

If half the people in the store dont want to wear a mask, grow a pair and don't.  I can then easily tell its a dumbass zone and pick another place.

You would think that as we “near the finish line” with the vaccinations actually starting people would be more inclined to do the public health measures, especially with the ICU issue.

I would have thought having some certainty as to when the pandemic will end (summer of 2021?) would result in more people falling in line. I don’t agree with the locks downs but I figured people would be more likely to wear mask, etc. given the end is near.

Unfortunately a small subset has been radicalized politically and the mask, pandemic and following safety protocols all is part of that political radicalization.

That is contrary to human nature...most people loosen up and become less careful with a perceived end/cure in sight.  After all...who cares about the disease cause there is a vaccine now, logistics be damned.

Something like 50+% of all accident happen within 5 miles of your home...23% within 1 mile of one's home.

I read that experts are saying to wear masks even though you get the vaccine.

I think that is because most a people are always driving near their house not so much the they let up. If people spend 70% of their time within 5 miles of their home the chances are more likely they will have an accident closer to their home (larger population size).
