#TheGreatBarringtonDeclaration calls for allowing #covid19 to spread openly while “protecting” the elderly/vulnerable.

While I actually believe the authors mean well, there are multiple reasons why I believe this is a seriously problematic proposition.

-With asymptomatic & presymptomatic spread, the virus will inevitably find its way beyond the first layer of “healthy” people, esp in crowded households & intergenerational households— & especially in our most vulnerable communities who are more likely to run this risk.
-Allowing millions of cases to spread unabashedly will absolutely mean at least several thousands of cases requiring hospitalizations. And those of us who are still working on the frontlines will be the ones — once again— fighting to care for patients w/o adequate supplies.
