NY Postwrote:Boston’s mayor is holding firm to keeping lockdown plans in place, days after a new study revealed that nearly 90% of residents haven’t been exposed to the coronavirus.
“We can draw two preliminary conclusions from the results of this study,” Walsh said at a news conference Friday. “First, that the actions we took early on in this pandemic made a real difference in slowing the spread and, second, that the majority of our population still have not been exposed to the virus. This underscores what we already know, that we have to move cautiously and stay focused on what got us this far.”
The logic behind this is amazing.
1) We must lockdown as we want to flatten the curve.
2) Two months later when a study reveals only 10% of Boston has been infected. "Not enough people have been infected. We will stay locked down even though the rest of the state is going to start to open up."
3) If he's going to use that logic, why not just say, "We're going to to stay locked down until a vaccine is invented."
