Lot of stuff I'd like to comment on... As for people dying, I know the situation here has never been as bad as it has been for example in New York or Italy, mainly in terms of deaths, and the lockdown has been less severe. Now it seems like, China aside, Germany is one of the first big countries to start coming out of lockdown, and so far, it seems to be going rather well. The number of newly infected has been dropping, on average, since late march. On the 20th last month, most stores and such were allowed to re-open , with some restrictions regarding the number of people allowed in, they have to supply disinfectant etc. On the 27th, face masks became mandatory in all stores and on public transport, and schools started to slowly re-open. And... nothing happened. As of now, the numbers are still going down, and I really hope this trend continues. More businesses will be allowed to re-open on monday. Obviously, two weeks are not a long time by any means, but people who got infected last monday should have been showing symptoms early this week, so I guess if the numbers go up again, we should see that by next week. Granted, at least the people I know take the advice mostly serious, washing your hands, stay away from each other... in february, it felt like half the people I know were sick, since the lockdown started... none. Literally no one. I like the "treat everything you touch as if it were covered in poop" comparison, but working at a night club occasionally and with transfering cars all across the country being the main job, I luckily kinda adopted to that years ago. It is disgusting how some people treat themselves, and even if you don't see or smell it at first, a disturbing number of hands definitly have some degree of poop on them. Some people just don't wash themselves, and they keep touching everything.
