Reason: None provided.

The novel coronavirus is more severe and lethal than influenza so I agree that society should try to keep case levels down to a certain threshold and try to protect long term care and protect the vulnerable within reason. However with the way people speak, it's like they expect people to be in quarantine until cases are 0. My own family literally doesn't want me to see my girlfriend until there's a 100% effective vaccine because my dad is 72 and has cancer and I'm basically his caretaker because my brother lives too far and my sister lives downtown and doesn't drive. I don't want anything bad to happen to my dad. But you can't help but resent being asked to give up your love life for your dad when my dad had been married to my mom for 45 years and had his love life. And my girlfriend doesn't have any symptoms. But "muh asymptomatic transmission." What the fuck do the scientists even know about asymptomatic transmission anyways? The viral load in their droplets might not even be enough to infect others. If asymptomatic spread was a big factor, would we have even been able to crush the curve as hard as we did in the first place? The numbers are so low in Ontario now but my family won't be happy until it's 0. And it's not just my family that's like this. A lot of Liberals literally expect 0. They don't want to open schools. They want small children to stunt their cognitive development for life to save the old and sick.
