    The brief answer is it's complicated. Studies seem to suggest that where protests have followed CDC guidelines of wearing masks and social distancing, the protests have not contributed too significantly to the continued spread of the virus; that does not mean they have not contributed at all, only that it hasn't been a major contributing factor. Which would indicate that the CDC guidelines are largely effective; its ignoring those guidelines that has been a significant contribution.

    Yes, COVID-19 is real, and has been responsible for the deaths of over 200,000 Americans so far.

    When you are writing the script any thing is possible. Still the best at this was wrestling in Memphis in the 1970's and 80's

    What I want to know is that were we (or at least I) really that gullible or did they just do a good job of making it convincing?

    Beware the leaven of the conspiracy theorists, for they proclaim both a grand conspiracy that is at once all powerful and at the same time completely inept.

    I've basically come to learn and understand that most everything that you see on television isn't real.

    I was talking about wrestling and yes I know somebody but it was a mild case and so he recovered rather quickly. Thank God I don't know anybody else who has had it, gotten really ill from it or died from it. My point was is it as serious as they say it is?

    I do. Several. And my husband’s aunt went temporarily into a nursing home to get PT. Guess what? Covid in her wing. She is in isolation now.

    Yeah I guess you're right since I know somebody who had it,.. it just wasn't as serious as a lot of it seems to be,.. I still think that the numbers aren't exactly accurate though.

    If you are speaking of Memphis wrestling it was the best. Andy Kaufman knew where the place to go for the show.

    As for the virus who knows what is real and what is exaggerated and what are lies.

    A disease should not be a political/conspiratorial talking point. It’s not black and white. there are many that have died of Covid as has been written on the autopsy reports. My husbands first visit-worker was only 40. This is killing people of all ages.

    Yes,.. but do you not agree that they have been twisting this out of proportion since the beginning and how can you know for certain what is real and what the media just wants to make you believe is real? It's very hard to tell and I just have trouble trusting them a lot of the time.

    I don’t go to conspiracy sites. I know what our real life experience is and I check the CDC daily. We take care of elderly people. I worked and volunteer in nursing homes. It’s real. Why would anyone be careless in such a situation? We go back and forth on the virus only because we are learning daily. I wear my mask, wash my hands, etc. Why wouldn’t anyone do the same? Love thy neighbor.

    It's not in their narrative. Can't go to Church, enjoy life because the big bad covid might get you but if you riot it's fine that's why I believe it's all a big bag of lies that we been given since March. It's ridiculous that we are doing all this mask and distancing silliness for 9689 or there abouts people who died from covid. The rest just died from other things with covid but not from it. I hate what their doing, this is not China this is America and the Constitution does not say shutdown for a illness.

    The really horrible part for me is I found out that even next year school will be distance. I hate being at home all the time. I wish the government would just get out of lives and leave us alone.

    Sorry I am really mad about the lies and what the liberals are doing to America. I was even thinking this morning that if President Trump doesn't win again than there is no reason to live or hope because evil is stronger. I was very depressed this morning.
