Billions have gone with the understanding it was to protect us from medical threats. It is not as though they have failed a couple of the targets but rather ALL. Go ahead and justify why we are where we are. I am not just ready to white wash the failures of these "government group/CDC's, etc etc". They failed and should be held accountable.
There were departments dedicated to this. One of them was eliminated. The director of the other one was fired. This happened during the current administration, these decisions were announced live, on live network TV, in official announcements by the person responsible for making those decisions.

I didn't think political posts were allowed. Well, they're all over this thread.
I get so tired of the finger-pointing. Can't we discuss what is happening... best practices on how to avoid getting this virus, etc. What benefit do we gain by trying to lay blame?

The US is on track with Italy. Her is something else to think about; in Italy on Sunday 3/15 - 300 people died, on Monday 3/16 another 300, on Tuesday 3/16 another 300 deaths, on Wednesday 3/17 another 475 deaths. Hospitals in Italy are close to running out of hospital capacity.

Thumbs down Rec Actions

An approach to the blatant violation of the number at outside area of the Rec Center is to
do as they did for the pools. Check on a regular basis the number playing games outside the Center, (e.g. Cards, etc) and if they are violating the "10" only number have them disband and prevented from returning. Their disregard for controls should not be so blatant as they risk other Villages residents.
