In response to 144216: crowded bar next to Gertrude's - ?, posted by Harry A2 on Sunday, 21 June 2020, at 8:53 a.m.
I am hearing that the recent increase in COVID cases is partly due to testing but also due to crowds. They reported an increase in young people testing positive. This is because they tend to ignore the warnings (perhaps feeling indestructible as many of them feel). This is along the lines of "The heck with the virus, it's Spring Break Time!".
Was this a younger crowd?
I also heard a person today touting that we had the so-and-so virus/epidemic many years ago. It was worse and we didn't social distance. My thought was, maybe that is why it was worse, we didn't social distance. I was in private school during the 1968 Hong Kong flu and it was horrible. I lucked out in getting it early because I was sent to the infirmary. When it was full, the rest of the students had to stay in their rooms. There were no in-room bathrooms just a large bathroom on each floor shared by many people. Getting sick in your room required the use of a metal trashcan near the bed. The smell of PineSol type cleaners still turns my stomach as my mind flashes back to those times. Luckily stomach issues don't seem to be the worse part of COVID.
