    My only problem with idiots infecting themselves is that they will spread it to others who aren't as idiotic.

    This. If we stop social distancing prematurely, hospitals won't be able to treat non COVID-19 illnesses and injuries. There would have to be a triage center where doctors have to make the horrible decision of who has priority and who has to die.

    Go pull a shift at Brooklyn Hospital shitbirds:

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/26/nyregion/coronavirus-brooklyn-hospital.html


    More than 40 percent of the hospital’s inpatients — scattered throughout the building — were confirmed or suspected coronavirus cases, as were more than two-thirds of the critical care patients. By Wednesday four had died, three of them since Monday.

    More than a half-dozen hospital workers have contracted the virus and close to 50 staff members were potentially exposed by just one patient — the hospital’s first — who developed symptoms after being in the I.C.U. for a different medical problem, according to hospital leaders. Some of them have been in quarantine. Most worrisome, at the start of the week, two hospital staff members were receiving intensive care themselves. It feels, one employee said, like an invisible war.​

    Hospitals wont even be able to treat Covid 19 patients if people tried this (let alone non Covid-19 patients). Its scary how close some places are to running out of ICU beds. The goal of the quarantine is to delay the peak levels of the virus so that hospitals can have time to prepare for the surge of cases. Coronavirus is going to infect a significant number of Americans. We can't avoid that at this point.

    We'll end up like Italy where hospitals are choosing who gets an ICU bed and who is left to die if idiots tried this. Then again you have places like Mississippi where the governor literally pre-empted local shelter in place orders in favor of allowing businesses to operate. So maybe these idiots will get their wish in some states.

    it seems we already have a large pool of candidates

    not sure how this is different from a vaccine trial where they test it on 40-50 people initially, then onto 100s for months to ensure safety
