"
Senior Christian Griffith returned to his east campus dorm Thursday. He said of the about 70 students who normally live in the building, only around 20 have since moved back in.

"It's a pretty empty campus," he said. "The number of students staying seems to be low."

Other students returned only briefly to meet a Tuesday night deadline to complete the move out process. According to an announcement sent to students Saturday, the university is now considering offering refunds or credits to students who choose to move off campus.

Though Griffith is concerned about the swiftly spreading virus, the Charlottesville native said he is happy to have a place to stay in Lynchburg. Both of his parents work at the University of Virginia Medical Center and living at home, he said, could pose a greater health risk than living in a dorm."

40-50% of COVID patients in hospitals right now are under 50 with some as young as 20, with no underlying conditions. It's a myth it isn't a threat to younger folks. Also, many of their staff are bound to be in the higher fatality risk group age.

Are all you farkers who don't want non essentials hassled on the street cool with this?  These "people" are walking bio terror weapons.  Take every quarentine breaker and shove the "university" full up of them.  Until it is packed to the gills. Then torch the place.  We need the non essentials locked up for our own safety.  Sorry, you should have become essential beforehand.  The world doesn't need youtube or preacher  celebrities walking around spreading disease.  So you get to stay inside, for a while.  Even if it is inconvenient.  Hell, the government is likely to send you free money, without having to work.  Unlike the essentials, who still have to work.  To keep your non essential life going.  So stay the fark inside.

We are all in this together.  And if you aren't "in this" with us, you are the enemy and very likely some Chinese or russian bio terror weapon.  You must be neutralized.  We asked nicely for you to stay isolated for a little while.  To give you the illusion of choice, hoping you would choose the right way.  But you didn't.  And maybe it isn't your fault.  Maybe you are programmed by your handlers to have an uncontrollable desire to spread your weaponized virus.  I don't know.  But I do know you are a danger to us all and should be eliminated.  Maybe we need shocking videos of your kind being eliminated to break you out of your Chinese or Russian conditioning?  Maybe seeing quarentine breakers run over by tanks will break the conditioning?

and people in the streets, and people in stores, and people in their families, and each one of those people who go back to the stupid university could potentially indirectly infect hundreds of others, some of whom will die.

this isn't a self-selecting cohort putting themselves at risk, this is a group of morons who are spreading risks throughout the population.

I still, to this day, find it hard to believe that people can be this obstinate, stupid, selfish, and cruel.

Young adults (20 to 29 years old)
The important stats on young adults:
In Spain, out of 1,285 cases for people 20 to 29 (a much bigger sample size than we have for children), 183 of them have been hospitalized, a 14 percent rate; eight have ended up in intensive care, a 0.6 percent rate, and four people in this age range have died, a 0.3 percent fatality rate.
Italy and South Korea have reported no fatalities for this group; China reports that 0.2 percent of cases for these young people end in death.
The CDC covers a huge 20-44 age range in its data, but here's what we know about that entire group: 14.3 percent hospitalized, 2 percent in the ICU, and 0.1 percent fatality rate."

It's not just about fatalities in their age cohort, if they are sick enough to require hospitalization then they are using up resources that could be going to caring for others. Others who will die.

Because of course. The most important thing is God money, love of neighbor money, and caring for  the sick and elderly more money.

Money, money, money. That's far more important than saving lives or looking out for their neighbor. Apparently, that's Jesus' priority.

I really think most evangelicals - especially the leaders - have never read the New Testament.

Greedy MFs.

Sadly, it is often the only option a lot of kids have due to their fundy parents refusing to let them go anywhere else. Hopefully when these kids get sick they'll be fine but if they then pass it on to the susceptible folks that sounds like an ironic win.

Falwell's a jerk, and this is no doubt, his answer to being "faithful" in the midst of a virus "hoax." But I don't see why students can't live on the campus and get takeout from the cafeteria?

No deliveries.  Even a hazmat suit can get a hole or tear.  Then the delivery person is infected and will spread the disease to us.  Make them ride out the entire  quarantine with what they have on hand.  If they start eating human flesh, that is their problem.  Use snipers on them if they try and run the quarantine.

No, it's not okay, only because if over 1800 stupid people get infected they are going to spread it around before they die and take a shiat load of innocent people with them.
