Covid is extremely serious and the U.S is simply not prepared for a pandemic. We don't have enough hospital beds, masks, healthcare workers, people with insurance or even test kits etc. 

The spread of this disease will be worse than Italy, and Italy is already about to start turning away elderly patients due to overcrowding. 

We keep going on as if nothing is different so obviously it is up to the citizens to push for drastic measures to keep this virus contained.  

According to American hospitalization numbers:

96,000,000 infections 4,800,000 hospitalizations 1,900,000 ICU admissions 480,000 deaths vs flu in 2019: 35,500,000 infections 490,600 hospitalizations 49,000 ICU admissions 34,200 deaths.

Why don't we try lowering these protections and close HOTBEDS of community spreads like bars and restaurants where people are constantly handling money and touching dirty plates etc. Cooks and dishwashers rarely practice good hygiene, let's be real, and most restaurants will force employees to come in regardless of if they are sick. 

We as citizens and business owners need to take this seriously because our government is not going to.
