Nice Job, Peru

Postby 69roadrunner » Sat Aug 29, 2020 10:18 am

13 die in disco stampede. Peruvian Police make a surprise raid on a disco with no warning causing a panic, killing 13.
Why you may ask? Because a gathering such as in a dico WILL KILL PEOPLE.
I would venture that no one would have died from simply attending a dsco function, certainly not 13.

Hard to say. Even if none of the people in that disco died, some of those people could've contracted the virus and then spread it to older relatives, friends, co-workers, people on combis, in markets, etc., some of whom due to age or pre-existing health conditions would be more suceptible to becoming very sick or dying. It's pretty hard to say what the exact negative effects would've been as far as numbers of people becoming sick, hospitalized, or even dying, but it's certain that risks to the health of others was increased and not averted. People ignoring the advice of experts and going to parties without masks, not social distancing, is one of the reasons Peru is doing so lousy in combating the virus.

Not so pretty. Proves my point, lock downs do not work and the result is much worse when you take into account the domestic violence, loss of income, etc. Not to mention having some of the most draconian measures thrown in our faces and Peru rising, still, to #5 in world cases and #2 in South America. What is the purpose? What is Peru striving for? To be #1 in the world?
