Huh? The World Health Organization estimates that the flu kills about 250,000 to 500,000 people per year worldwide.

Well, it's looking like the me-me-me Narcissists who don't follow rules are going to ruin everything for everyone else. No consideration for all the rest of us who REALLY don't want to catch an illness that could KILL us when it could have been avoided with diligence and common sense. The Villages will end up "winning" the Darwin Awards this year. Thinning the herd indeed. The sad thing is a lot of innocent good people are going to be taken down with them as this virus spreads like wild fire. Just saying.

I agree with you about that. But, if they shut off the music someone will bring a boombox.

I just don't get it. Partying during this pandemic is putting ALL of us at risk!

Arrogance!!!!

A person with flu infects an average of 1.3 people, usually from close contact. A person with COVID 19 infects about 3 people and close contact is not necessary. Droplets, some too small to be seen, can hang in the air for quite awhile, and can survive on some surfaces for days. The average person touches his face 90 times per day. Wash your hands frequently. Keep your hands away from the T-zone (eyes, nose, mouth). Stay 6 feet away from other people. If you are in a confined space like a store and someone ahead of you coughs or sneezes, don't walk through that area. If you have to cough or sneeze, cover it as best you can with your arm or a tissue. People who are hoarding hand sanitizer and disinfectants are endangering themselves as well as the rest of us. A lot more of us would like to do our part to keep everyone safe, but we can't buy the things we need to do that. This is a very nasty virus. It targets and destroys the alveoli (air sacs) in your lungs leading to less oxygen in your blood which then leads to organ failure. It also causes increased permeability of vessels which means they begin to leak causing fluids to build up where you don't want fluids building up. Even people who recover from the virus can have lasting damage. Take this seriously. For people our ages, Russian Roulette with a six shot revolver would be safer than crowding a town square.

Default The Villages has the state's 4th highest per capita cases

Thank you for posting that. Most telling was his statement that Sumter County, where The Villages is, has the state’s fourth-highest rate of confirmed infections, with 26 cases per 100,000 residents. Only Broward County [42 cases per 100,000 residents], Miami-Dade County [36,] and Monroe County [27] have higher rates of confirmed infections per capita.
Talk of the Villages doesn’t allow me to post the link to the article for reference. It was in Floridapolitics dot com /archives/325627-coronavirus-community-spread-the-villages

It so hard to understand why these people are oblivious to the on going Covert 19 Virus which is in the Villages and continues to spread everyday. The Surgeon General for the state of Florida yesterday issued an order stating that people who are 65+, and people with underlying health conditions must stay at home for the next two weeks. The people who are ignoring this order continue to put the rest of us in jeopardy. Because of the age group in the Villages we are very lightly to become the next hot spot of this epidemic due to their reckless behavior.

The testing being done is on the already symptomatic ONLY. Must have Fever, Must have Shortness of breath, to be tested.
Sounds a bit late to me.
What does this mean to the rest of us?
This means the infected and A symptomatic, or No symptoms persons are
infecting others and look and feel fine this month.

This should be very alarming to the Social gathering Naysayers of the Villages.
