Debate:COVID-19 Quarantine

From Conservapedia

After months of quarantine for coronavirus, is it time to finally re-open the economy? Should the quarantine be over? Did we really need to all be quarantined to this extent in the first place, or has it at least gone on too long? Moreover, are those who are knowingly violating the quarantine, such as InfoWars' Owen Shroyer,[1] or a Canadian man who attempted to feed the homeless,[2] in the right?

Hundreds of thousands of people across the world have died from this disease and millions have been infected. Simultaneously, millions of people have been laid off or lost their jobs due to the mass quarantine. Should we resume business, now or soon? Or is it best to wait this out until the death toll drops to zero?

Interestingly, the conservative Premier of Ontario Doug Ford has severely criticized the anti-quarantine protesters.[3] Might be something to keep in mind. However, we should also keep in mind that many of Doug Ford's former grassroots supporters who are among the protesters have criticized Ford for these comments.[4] --- BernieandTrumpFan (talk) 22:16, 26 April 2020 (EDT)

Millions have died? I think the number is about 200,000 right now, about 1/5 of one million - and even that number is padded in the United States.
To have an informed debate, you need to begin with an informed premise. Otherwise you're just inviting trolling and a waste of time. RobSLive Free or Die 19:01, 26 April 2020 (EDT)
Okay, you have a point. I'm changing it to "hundreds of thousands." Millions of people have been infected, though. But again, you're right, I should have been more careful with my wording. --- BernieandTrumpFan (talk) 22:17, 26 April 2020 (EDT)
