When that went down, and I saw the footage, I did think "Sweet Nikes.  Where'd they get those?"

DecemberNitro: The slow-motion atom bomb that is this pandemic is still in the process of exploding, and here we are getting people saying "the danger is over, let's all get back to normal."

Modern conservative religion should be purged from every corner of the earth.

Then what's the problem.

Would it be better to send them home on planes to their (older) parents?

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.

"
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."
https://www.vox.com/2020/3/23/21190033​/coronavirus-covid-19-deaths-by-age

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.


And how are these "others" going to get it?
Shouldn't they be in their homes and apartments?

But isn't a dorm similar to an apartment complex?
They have to live somewhere.
