Possibly 130,000 deaths from Covid-19 in Mexico

I agree that the people in Limon/paraiso need to take responsibility, and I never said they were my friends. We too have been out and about following precautions and even accepting a very few guests and thankfully have remained healthy. Unfortunately not everyone is doing so. I am not convinced that the messaging from the government has been as clear as you would like to make it out to be.

As a side note we haven't even had a little cold which is unusual for both of us to go nearly 9 months without some kind of sniffle. Perhaps a side benefit of all the social distancing we have been engaging in.

I was not contradicting myself about testing. It has been you that has been saying all along that testing was a waste of resources for Mexico and I was using examples to show you why it is important and how the government is making decisions on incomplete data. I am sorry if that was too abstract. Sometimes our own personal knowledge and experience are not sufficient. Numbers, with context, are important for assessing situations we haven't experienced before. Covid-19 is an example of a scenario that none of us have experience with so it requires something more than personal knowledge and experience. You may think the numbers I have provided are without context but I think that I have provided much context.

You say you don't have time for this but post a comment that is derogatory to those of us who didn't have the time to respond quickly to your post.

I don't use Chump comparisons to bait you but because I genuinely see similarities in your responses as it relates to this topic. I in no way think that you are anywhere close to that Orange Cheeto head in personality, intelligence or countenance. I am just genuinely frustrated with the approach that you are taking to this particular topic. It is obvious that you are equally frustrated with my approach.
