Risky Behavior in GR?
Since June the new cases of COVID-19 are rising with younger people in Michigan under the age of 40. The age group of 20-39 are now accounting for 28% of all new cases. And the biggest increase has been with 20-29 years old. It was nice to see Michigan have no COVID-19 related deaths on Sunday. And in comparison to other states, Michigan had 488 cases on Monday vs. Florida which had 8,892, which is now the #2 state for cases in the US behind New York. So people in Michigan are making the efforts and doing a great job.
Risky Behavior #1? Going to a Bar! That's why Gov. Whitmer shut the bars down again. It turns out that, according to this new chart from the Texas Medical Association, "Going to a Bar" is a nine on a scale of one to ten of the riskiest things to do during the COVID-19 outbreak.
What risk are you willing to take? From the chart below you can decide what risk you're willing to take.
"Opening your mail" was deemed only a one risk, followed by "getting take out", "pumping gas", "playing Tennis" and going "camping".
Risky business also scoring a nine was "attending a large concert" (though there's no chance of that right now), "attending religious service with 500+ in attendance" and "going to a sports stadium" close risk of eight "buffet", "working out at gym", "amusement park", "playing football or basketball", and remember this one when you think it's impolite to bump elbows - "shaking someone's hand or hugging" when greeting someone. Is that worth your life?
Good to see some other activities with low risk of three like "playing golf", "going for a walk or bike ride" and "grocery shopping".
It will be interesting to see that happens this fall: "sending kids to school" had a six risk factor as did "working in an office building"
I personally was surprised to see that getting "your haircut" or "attending a funeral" were so high on the list with a risk factor of six, both of which I had done in the last week.
Screenshot this list. So you know your risk on a scale of one to ten.
