Tyler Manion weighs in on quarantine.
It has been a truly harrowing experience, trying to navigate through this global health crisis. For months now many countries around the world have been locked down in quarantine. Some days it feels like there will be no end in sight, particularly as the numbers come out.
But there are those who believe that the numbers offer the exact reason why we should open up the economy.
IFBB Pro League Vice President Tyler Manion may not be sold on upholding quarantine. In his Instagram story the IFBB Vice President had this to say about the continued quarantine.
“Am I the only one who feels like I’m taking crazy pills watching people still believe all the BS about this virus? The CDC themselves just set the new survival rate to 99.6-99.8% and using the inflated numbers to get to that which means the survival rate is even higher. They are shoving it in our faces what a sick joke it is to be locked down at all anymore.”
The frustration Tyler Manion has is understandable. The quarantine has lasted for months now with no definitive end in sight. That said, the lives lost during this crisis can not be overlooked. The handling of the whole situation has been less than ideal from the start. Quarantining sooner and taking care of the working people would have kept things from exploding like they did.
Nevertheless, we can’t stay locked inside forever. There will come a point when this quarantine must be lifted. For now we will all have to weigh our options and see how things play out.
