The governor needs to adopt a more specific plan. His “another 30 days” caused despair. He’s going to lose control.
All should be ordered to adopt the Swedish plan. The WHO has pointed out Sweden’s plan worked – keep your economy going and issue masks, do lots of testing, isolate the older and more vulnerable, social distancing and cutting out the large gatherings; making sure the hospitals are ready.
The rural counties should be opened today. The moderate-size areas like Tri Cities next week. And 2 weeks down the line, Spokane. Hold back on the Sea Tac and Vancouver areas for obvious reasons. Thirty days at a minimum.
We have to balance what we are doing. We are going to be destroyed either way. So man up and make the tough decision.
I am one of the older, vulnerable folks (male; 71; retired; living alone; history of pneumonia). Thank you all for your consideration. It’s no fun being on the line, but it is time to help the younger and the working folks who have families and jobs.
