  1. WOW!! Just WOW! This is incredible … and needs WIDESPREAD viewing.

    From the article:

    “Eating indoors at a restaurant is one of the riskiest things you can do in a pandemic,” The research … looked at … infections among three families who dined at a restaurant along the flow of air conditioning in tables that were three feet apart, overlapping for about an hour. Ten of the diners tested positive for the coronavirus.

    The official definition of a “close contact” — 15 minutes, within six feet — isn’t foolproof.

    1. Hello Nan. At what point does human life become valuable, or lose its value? If I have to give up enjoying cocktail parties to save a few people is that acceptable? How about not having my kid sit on a mall Santa’s lap so I can get a picture for the yearly bragging letter, if it saves children’s lives? is that too much? Surely asking us not to dine out, to pay to have other gather with us and force people to serve us in a wash of our breathed in and out contagions is a step too far to go to protect the lives of other humans right? After all it is not an unborn fetus we are trying to keep from not living, it is only a living person who will die with out our helping stop the spread of the virus.

      The next time I have anyone argue with me about abortion first I demand to know how they handled Covid precautions. Hugs

  2. I wish all Countries were as diligent at using various resources to map the virus and then change things so that it’s unlikely to happen again in the same way. Those who don’t take advantage of studies like this are showing a lack of care for their citizens.I don’t suppose it would stop the evangelists from going to church though
    Hugs.
