Me too which is why I am going to play devils advocate on this.
You said ...
"Maybe a few weeks of isolation will be enough until it passes. No one knows. If you don’t think you’re going to get sick, then do these things for the rest of the community. I’m in quarantine now and Jen is in a hotel. We are taking this very seriously, because it is serious. Mexico and some other countries have not gotten the message or acted strongly enough".
Can you see the social privilege in that? You have the money and the
time and space to take those actions. What about the people who are living
hand to mouth? If they take a day off work they are in immediate financial
difficulties. As was mentioned on the town meeting today "I may die of the
corona virus, but I'm not going to starve to death." Do you see the reality,
the struggle, the desperation behind those words? We can't just tell others
to conform to our expectations we have to take responsibility for ourselves.
If you are really that afraid of the virus then do as Vicky is doing .
