So moving forward, how do we convince people to wear masks? I just don't think that telling people that masks don't protect the wearer has been a good strategy to encourage widespread mask wearing.
The problem is we can't lie to grandma that it's safe to go ride the train with a bunch of maskless, coughing idiots just because she's wearing a bandana around her face. The protection gained from masks is a bit like herd immunity with vaccinations -- you're supposed to do it because it protects the most vulnerable and because doing it as a group imparts the most protection, not simply because it gives you 100% protection (some vaccines do give close to 100% protection, but it is lower for many others, and only approaches 100% if everybody does it).

Thus it's no surprise that the same people who are resistant to masks tend to be anti-vaxxers as well. They're the same people who voted a proudly anti-science xenophobic narcissist into the White House. If we can't convince people using science and empathy, maybe we do just need to lie to them?

Bring the quarantine lockdown back even harder.

“Do you think that will stop the spread of the virus?”

Virus?

we're screwed
this is where it started westchester county
stupid bastards and their graduation ceremony
THats exactly how it spread up here the first time, but I really don’t think our second wave is gonna be nearly as bad as the first, the main reason why we did so bad was because we simply were not prepared for what was coming at all, we got blindsided....had no staff, no equipment, no idea of how to treat or even isolate these patients properly...we had no clear protocols, NADA....legit winged it for weeks just trying to prevent hospitals from collapsing...not the case now when the second wave hits.

Facts bro, all these deaths and blood is in the hands of our leaders and mostly the Trump administration...these red states dealing with their first wave could have avoided this **** had Trump NOT politicized the virus and started peddling conspiracy theories and instead they learned from our mistakes and how the government left us exposed....but nah...whole country looking as stupid as the idiot running it....

if people can't see the numbers and understand wearing a mask now is one factor into trying to combat this, well then those people are idiots and for the 5th time, F those idiots.

The message is loud and clear and couldn't be more obvious

God willing. NY can't go through that again.

What's your hospitals PPE situation. Are supplies more readily available these days?

it might not be as bad but people don't deserve to get and the state doesn't have to go through the same thing because people cant follow simple directions that still are not 100% safe proof

That pesticide not healthy either. Those people are cooked.
You’re right. Imagine sitting in a room with no ventilation for 2+ hours after toxic disinfectant Was sprayed everywhere.
These movie theatres opening up is like the TP craze I just don’t get it.
Why do you NEED to go see a movie right now? You gotta wash your hands after getting the snacks and can’t even sit next to your date because of the empty seat distance.
Most movies are releasing simultaneously online too.
