    Hair stylist exposed workers and customers to covid while having symptoms :(

    Hopefully with the precautions taken she didn't infect 91 people.

    If I was still working I'd have some symptoms this time every year, but not the high fever. (severe allergies causing cough)

    Dentist and barber/hairstylist have to be the two most dangerous occupations right now. As much as I enjoy a good cut, I think I'll be letting the wife take the clippers to my head for some time.

    I guess the kissing booths at the local state fairs will be a non-starter this year..............

    Guessing you'll have to find another hobby.

    It should be interesting how many patrons contract an illness from the masked hair stylist.
    “Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell

    We as a human species have been "living" with viruses among us since the beginning of time.

    Never have we allowed a virus to paralyze us with fear.

    And that is exactly what we are allowing. We are allowing them to use fear to paralyze us.

    We have stopped living because we are in fear of dying.

    And that is ludicrous.

    Had you not opened with your first sentence, I might have thought you were talking about only us as in Americans, and perhaps only in your lifetime, and I might therefore have given you a pass. Since you didn't though, your statement couldn't be less accurate and I would be doing you a great disservice if I didn't point that out. The Spanish Flu is the closest thing we have to compare with since that happened 100 years ago, and it absolutely did paralyze the people living during it with fear. It reshaped the globe through far more ways than could be grasped without doing some extreme deep diving through economics, science, religion, regional powers. It's hard to really realize it, because it came hot on the heels of WW1, and is just one of those things that for whatever reason gets either glossed over or overlooked completely until another virus shows up. Viruses kill us 10 over more than everything else combined. Maybe that's why we rarely talk about them, as to do so is akin to summoning the Devil. We'll defeat this virus one day, the world will rebuild and move on, and years from now this will barely register in our collective memories, which is why you could even think to say what you did. But in the back of our subconscious minds, we will remain terrified of the great devourer of man.

    Several hundred years before the Spanish Flu, explorers and colonists came to the new world, the Americas, baring diseases they had long ago largely built up immunity to. It decimated tens of millions of natives throughout the Americas in just a few generations. Those wondering why early settlers were able to so easily move across the country with little to no opposition most of the time, it's because most of the natives were already dead. Entire tribes, possibly even empires, gone in just a matter of years. Yes, they lived in fear of things they could only barely understand, and we can only barely know these people now due to what has been lost and buried.

    Not that long before the above happened though, Europe itself was completely transformed with the Black Plague. Do you honestly think those people didn't live in utter fear? Yet another example of something that completely reshaped the face of humanity all through the Asian, European and North African regions.

    Honestly you could make your entire lifes work to be to study the effects, both long and short term, of deadly pathogens and the consequences/reactions/fallout for societies and civilizations, and still not come anywhere near learning the full scope of just how much they have reshaped and molded mankind. To try and trivialize it goes well past ignorance into pure foolishness.

    I nominate this for the post of the month.
    Maybe the year.
    Probably even since Al Gore invented the internet.
    6 sentences of nothing but truth.

    Nowhere have I trivialized the virus.

    Our reaction to it however, should be trivialized, mocked, and shoved aside.
