I wonder what percentage of a countries population has to follow lockdown rules in order for it to be effective?

I would estimate we have over 90% compliance in my state and we are doing fine. Only a little over 5000 confirmed cases in a population of 4.4 million, with "only" 261 deaths. We're doing better than most states. We started lockdown earlier and are reopening later, had more restrictions than many.

Any compliance would be helpful in reducing the total number of opportunities for transmission. 100% compliance is certainly not necessary (or possible).

California i saw i think it was last night or yesterday i forget which, i'm a night owl and was up a 3 am so when i say last night it could have been 3 am or 3 pm for all i know it's 10:33 am now.  anyways they are apparently going in Phase 2 in opening up hell Disney world/land are gonna be opening it up soon too

they say oh you will wear masks etc.. but honestly it's just too soon we haven't seen the spike yet and we all know that the next batch of the virus much like the one from (1918)  from what i hear the 1st hit of that virus was 3.5 million or something like that the 2nd one that hit was double that or was it tripled ? i forget which or what the number actually was. i get that the country is dying with stuff closed and some stores you have to make an appointment that's not a bad idea
but to open a place like Disney world/land it's just not a good idea yet. it feels too soon too go into what they are calling phase 2 at least to me anyways.

i'm no doctor at all but with all these idiots going out and protesting i just have a feeling that the next out break won't be this fall or winter like they say it will be much sooner than that i say by June if things continue the way they are with all these places opening up. our drug mart there was a sign i saw last week when i was there 130 people are allowed in the store, that number was way to damn high i think. there wasn't that many there when we were there to be honest.

but ya know it would help if we had a leader who actually knew how to damn lead instead of lying to us but apparently we can't have that either

The DrumpfhenFuhrer has already moved on to something else that is more interesting.   Which is fine, he wasn't doing anything useful anyway.  Absence of his harmful rhetoric on this specific topic might be nice.  But he'll find ways to do harm in some other way, anyway.    Seriously.   Fuuuuu--uuuuuuuu--uuuuuuuck that guy and his cronies.

We're at 7.6 million people, 15,600 cases, 862 deaths, and our numbers are flattening and falling off looks like.   We're not overwhelmed.   My governor already has basically told 45 to go f**k himself, so I know the gov will keep our state on track doing what's best for the people.    I wish all states in the States were so lucky.

It's definitely too soon to count any kind of victory, but for where we are right now I'm glad.

I hope all y'all are staying safe and, well, something resembling sane.   hot

Hmm... I've just been offered the opportunity to enroll in a COVID-19 vaccine trial (doesn't mean I'd get poked with a needle, I was just sent the application). I'll consider it. It would be a unique way to do my part.

Something I posted on FB earlier today:

So let me get this straight - Bill Gates paid the Chinese to manufacture a virus and release it on their own people first so he could pay Dr. Fauci to advise Trump to shut down the country after first dismissing the whole thing as a hoax, so that the Democrats could win the election next fall, and the whole world played along with it - all so that Gates could complete the work of American Nazi Henry Ford and force us all to get vaccinations which would make us autistic, and plant us with tracking chips so that the Illuminati could then use "murder hornets" to wipe out a third of humanity, while spreading the virus with 5G towers all over the planet?

Or did I leave out the space aliens?

Space aliens? Don't be ridiculous! This is clearly the work of the lizard people.

The problem is not Trump. The problem is we have fellow Americans who think his word is gospel, and even if he loses the election, the reason he got elected is still here.
This country is so split. But it ain't the first time- it won't be the last. 
But It will be OK!

I have a cousin who believes all of this, kind of amazing how spot on this is (except the hornets I guess).  She also thinks Obama and Bill Gates rape and eat babies, and sacrifice them in Satanic rituals.  So much of it doesn't fit together in a coherent way it's completely baffling to me. 

She also thinks Trump is a hero who will soon crush the pedophile rings all over the world.  Never mind that QAnon has been saying that garbage for 4 years now, and nearly 100% of his predictions have been 100% wrong.

Also, my cousin has long been a bit of a nutter, but she's case-in-point of social media infecting your brain.  She got locked into circles of people feeding off this crap, and it absolutely made her mind worse and worse over years of exposure.  Anyone who tries to point out issues or problems she cuts off, so it's an inescapable loop.

Even worse, she has a young child, who I feel horrible for.
