This is false. Our director of nursing (I'm in population health) specifically called this out in our board call today. Source: World Health Organization.

Every employee had to fill out a questionnaire for submittal to DMAS. None of my answers triggered a test.

If most of us are going to get the virus, wouldn't it be better to get it earlier than later, especially if you only get it once?

I mean, the younger you are, the better. No better time than now.

And might as well get it now, before the hospitals are overrun.

haven't you heard about "flattening the curve"?  the idea is that if everyone gets sick all at once, it'll overwhelm the healthcare system and healthcare workers will be forced to make who-will-live-and-who-will-die decisions, as is currently the case in italy.  the goal is to space (!) out the rate of infection, so the same total number of people pass through hospitals but not all at the same time.  rushing to the hospital is risky both for yourself and for society in general.

and being a month younger or a month older isn't going to affect your outcome.
 
if only to pander to Jules, here is a U of MI article about flattening the curve.

Yes, I 100% know this. I'm just posting it to mock my in-laws. I'm one of those "lucky" people who gets a hall pass to hate on his in-laws because his wife hates her parents.

I was assuming the vaccination is 20 years in the making. Better to get it when I'm 52 instead of 65 or 70.

Somehow I knew this. If someone said "hey, do you think Celeste hates her parents," I would instinctively go "yes, of course" without having the slightest bit of info about the parents.

To be fair to my wife, her parents *were* piss-poor parents. You would hate them too if they were your parents.
