What’s the top comment? “Stay inside, save lives.” Nope. “Staying inside” itself has many harms, is not sustainable for another year, and outdoors is important for mental and physical health. The problem isn’t young ones having fun, it’s doing risky things which are… indoors. pic.twitter.com/kxS5iAawBx

People trying to make the virus into a moral judgement are just as delusional as the “V-shaped recovery” disphits. I am glad Zeynep is pushing back against the clueless liberal “stay inside infinitely” views. That we fucked up the pandemic response doesn’t mean we can just stay indoors forever.
That was never the plan and couldn’t work, anyway.
