  1. Omg,people are crazy here. Vaccine cant/wont be mandatory. Where does it end? How many mandatory vaccines should you have to prove? Vaccine will come,I predict maybe 50-60% of population gets it. On top of people who already have ad covid and have anti bodies and the likely hood covid will eventually be tamed due to lack of available hosts it will be like the flu which kills quite comparatively to covid including children. Is the flu vaccine proof required? Ive never gotten the flu shot in my adult life. 48 yrs old. Work 56 hours a week treating covid patients and yet I havent been sick or gotten covid this entire time. The fear is worse then the desease. 200,000 people die on this planet daily without including covid deaths. Many other diseases kill every day.
  2. Yup and people die from flu. People will die from covid even after a vaccine. But thats life and risk. I wont get vaccine and many others wont either. Same thing for flu. Ive never once gotten flu vaccine or the flu. The viral load may lesson,it may fade,etc... many unknowns could happen that could change things radically.
  3. Only way out is a vaccine. Sucks but thats it. Hope one comes...theres no other way around it. I wont get it but its the only way the world will ever relax and get normal. Cruising is sadly nearly impossible to so “safely”.... Personally I would sail in a heartbeat but not with a plexiglass bubble around everything. Hopefully they are able to weather the storm before bankruptcy. Cant see how they can if this goes another 6 months which may be likely.
  4. Cuz there is plenty of time. The virus facts are changing weekly. Im sure the cruis industry is tired of constantly updating protocol. By august infection rate may be very low or not. Ports may be open,or not. Theres nothing concrete. Everyone wants concrete answers. Imo they wont sail come august 1st. We will see.
  5. We live in connecticut. Beaches never closed. Nobody wearing masks on beach. Your outside,relax. Your chances are better getting hit by lightning. Ive been treating covid patients for 4 months with for the most part a surgical mask. In close quarters,inside.... never tested positive and I dont have antibodies. People have to start using common sense or your life will be in lockdown forever. A vaccine may never ever come.
  6. Stop this non sense. Wheres the protest spikes? Wheres the ozark spikes? Stop watching cnn and enjoy your life outside your house.
  7. Wear one for yourself if you are fearful of covid. You are protected if you wear one. Now if I want to take a calculated risk not wearing one thats on me. Dont tell me I need to wear one “for others”. They can wear one and they are protected. I wont live my life in fear. As a firefighter/paramedic we always used to put a mask on the patient who was coughing,sneezing etc. we did not wear one. We never got sick. Mind you we are in a 4x8 foot box 2 feet from patients doing interventions. So wear ine if you want to but if I have the choice I wont ever wear one. Dont try and guilt me into wearing a mask when you can easily wear one yourself and be protected. The facts have some how been lost along with the science of all this.
  8. Loo,this “super spreader” phenominom is yet to be proven. Its a crock of crap. The “experts” have been throwing darts at this for 4 months doing complete 180s on what they said a month ago. Lol,superspreader..... yes I know what its all about but its unproven. Just basically been said enough so now it must be true.
  9. Problem is at least in the states this virus is political now. Facts dont matter at all. Its all about control and power and re-elections.
  10. Phase 1 starts monday in nyc. They met criteria. Lots of guessing in your post. Most guessing has been proven to be wrong by even “experts”. It is no longer a hot spot. Covid cases are lowest since before it started in march and infection rate is off charts low.
  11. Wait till is 90 and 100 %humidity. See how you feel. I wear one at work as well as firefighter/paramedic. Last place im wearing one is on vacation
  12. Exercise and clean healthy diet goes a long way. Diet first and formost which in united states most people eat out of a box and dont exercise. Wonder why their sick....hypertension,type 2 diabetic,obese etc... .. best defense against viruses is being healthy to start off with. Im 48 yrs old,never had flu vaccine,never had flu. Havent had a cold in over 2 years. Ride my bike 200 miles a week and eat vegan. No meds..... wont get covid vaccine if it ever does come to fruition.
  13. The death rate for population is hardly anything. Cant get much lower. If you divide by age group of course it goes up but goes down for other age groups. But that goes for any virus/desease
  14. Many viruses never get a vaccine. Just because theres hype for a vaccine,it doesnt mean it will ever come. The reality is we need to live with this virus among other viruses we live with. Unless you just want to stop living. Focus on making your body healthy and resilient to infections. If your already unhealthy then yes you should be fearful.
  15. To your point a vaccine may never come out. Many vaccines show early promise only to fail in later trials. Gotta live with the virus. Cant stop living.
