    This is from the recent outbreak in Illinois....................this stuff spreads so fast

    Preliminary Conclusions and Actions
    In this community outbreak, five children developed measles. Although all patients were eligible to have received MMR vaccine before their exposures, none had been vaccinated because of cultural barriers, limited access to care, and vaccine refusal. Whereas previous measles outbreaks in the United States have primarily occurred in underimmunized communities with highly interconnected social networks (1), neither of the affected families described in this report was part of a similar close-knit social community, and vaccination coverage data for the patients’ sociocultural groups were not available. Public health responses have typically required tailored approaches that include developing culturally appropriate education materials, securing translation services, and building relationships with community leaders (2). These efforts are time-consuming and costly, with a median cost per measles patient of approximately $33,000 during 2004–2017 (3). This outbreak is a reminder that measles is highly contagious, and transmission can occur between children who are not social contacts. Outbreaks might become more common as global measles cases continue to rise (4) and the number of children with exemptions to childhood vaccines increases (5). Clinicians should consider measles in susceptible patients with febrile rash illness and clinically compatible measles symptoms. All eligible children and susceptible adults should receive 2 appropriately spaced doses of MMR vaccine to prevent measles and measles outbreaks.¶¶

    They can also pass the flu to them. And vice versa. You cannot lock everyone up in isolation just because infectious diseases exist.

    Yes they should but were told by outside groups not to.

    No but you certainly can take precautions about exposing vulnerable people to an infectious disease.

    Yes, which is exactly what the authors of the Great Barrington Declaration suggested.

    And I don’t disagree with everything in that declaration but the argument that people like Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick made that elderly people should basically sacrifice themselves so we could open back up was hardly responsible.

    With a highly communicable disease there was going to be an economic hit no matter what because many people were getting sick, not being able to got to work, and straining our healthcare system. We saw that with states in the US that didn’t do shut downs such as the Dakotas.

    So a complete shutdown didn’t work for a variety of reasons but neither did trying to just go anout as though things were normal.

    I cannot imagine that having been the actual argument.

    Dan Patrick literally said
    https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-new...ck-suggests-he-other-seniors-willing-n1167341
    “No one reached out to me and said, 'As a senior citizen, are you willing to take a chance on your survival in exchange for keeping the America that America loves for its children and grandchildren?' And if that is the exchange, I'm all in,” Patrick said.

    Okay, that's a silly statement because that's not the alternative.

    Having had a few months to reflect - Just want to take a sec to commemorate all the people who thought this sad sack loser had the inside track on the Presidency!?!!?

    Now that petty wack job is back doing what he does best, banning things and making people's lives harder as a "capable administrator" - or actually just ust another POS right wing tyrant/grievance hustler.

    Get a real job loser

    One thing Trump knows, the suckups will always come around.

    "Ted Cruz, your wife's ugly and your father killed JFK!"

    "I love you, Donald!" (slurp slurp slurp)

    I updated your post, btw. Please don't take umbrage.

    I hope this is made clear and becomes an issue in itself.
