Testing at the Airport

I am not saying what is best for everyone, lets get that clear and out of the way.

But I am not seeing how a test at the airport has anything to do with me gurgling and drowning in a third world country.

A test is not going to save me. I can get free tests all day long right where I am.

The test will only let me go home if I am Not Showing any symptoms, it does nothing for me if I get sick.

Last I heard there is a Canadian couple in the hospital in Zihu now, dying. Denied even an emergency evac back to Canada. A free test isn't gonna save them or anyone else who gets ill. Sadly, almost all of the comments on that post are deleted as they were along the lines of " You Broke The Rules, Now Pay The Price" even as the daughter was begging to help get her dying parents home.

Whatever happened to the common good, sacrificing and sheltering in place an following the rules. The countries that have done the best are those that had mandatory rules, not recommendations. People are selfish and skirt the recommendations.

That said, you are free, do as you wish, but don't expect a whole lot of sympathy if something goes wrong.

I wish you continued safety and health.

No, I deleted nothing in that conversation, though I'm not surprised you'd make the accusation erroneously. Perhaps you're confusing this very open forum with one less so?

As to your other comments, screening international passengers for a virus responsible for a worldwide pandemia helps contain the pandemia, though it may not bring you any personal benefit other than letting you know you shouldn't be out'n'about.

The countries that have done the best have populations less than Ciudad de México. Mexico has many other challenging characteristics for controlling a pandemia that none of those countries have.


The deleted Messages I was referring to were on TA website. I made no accusation torwards you or this board.

My bad. It wasn't clear from your comments. I thought you were referring to the conversation here about the Troncones couple, somewhere near the bottom of the main page at the moment. I offer you a sincere apology, and I'll even blow you a kiss. :blush:
