Actually, what I did was point out how stupid it is that you jump up and down every time cases go up somewhere (even tho you swear you don’t follow case count). Do you think people who are pro-Stugis, pro-Universities opening, pro-Sweden not doing lockdowns, etc. aren’t expecting some increase in cases due to these gatherings?You used an obvious strawman to make your point and I called you on it. If you want to have a serious discussion, don't say things like "If the goal is to have zero COVID cases then the only option is to lock everyone in a room by themselves within their home. "
The fact of the matter is that if the R0 drops below 1, the virus will die out. We can achieve that through some limitations on social interaction. It needn't be all or nothing. Eliminating super spreader events would go a long way toward reducing the spread and actually allowing other types of more limited interaction, but your knee-jerk reaction is to defend Sturgis and anything else people might think is a cause.
Maybe a graph of Scandinavia would help you. I’ll use multiple axis and include Wyoming for the heck of it.
