I just saw this and was surprised. Most people seem, now, to understand the dangers of a pandemic such as caused by SARS CoV-2. I’m familiar with Trump's followers being uninformed and threatened by anything that reveals the truth about their cult leader. These orchestrated pseudo constitutional arguments are amazingly weak.

I do not claim to be a constitutional attorney although I have studied it. Much of it is no longer relevant and will be replaced at some point but that will probably not be a pleasant experience. Public health does take priority and, not surprisingly, the great majority of the population takes this seriously. Polls are showing this as the astroturf movement fostered by the Trump regime represents a tiny group although well funded and noisy. Quarantine and social distancing should NOT be removed prematurely and until full, on-demand, testing is available everywhere.

This virus is extremely contagious and its lethality will not be clearly determined until herd immunity or vaccination is prevalent in the population. Please be very careful in trying to confound seasonal flu with SARS-CoV-2. The worst, in many decades, seasonal flu death rate (estimated) was 80k for 2017–18. The lowest was 14k in 2012–13. Those are all estimates. The current COVID-19 death is 68,000. This is estimated to be only 50-60% of the total to date in the US.

It appears that you have little understanding of what is happening. What motivates you to put the human population at risk?

The US has 33% of known cases of COVID-19 and 28% of the known deaths as of today. Again, both cases and deaths are assumed to be, still, grossly under-reported. The US has 4.27% of the planet’s population. These numbers speak for themselves as to why the US is the epicenter of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.

I consider actions such as yours to be culpable as a crime against humanity.
