This is not about safety, it’s about total control and the shredding of our most fundamental freedoms.
“Flatten the curve!” “Don’t overwhelm the healthcare system!” “Await the results of a study!” ?????
This reads like a god damn Onion article. Boston can’t reopen the city because nobody contracted Corona because we don’t let anybody go outside so we need to keep the city locked down so nobody catches Corona. https://t.co/7mEno5mWx2

Boston not ready to reopen after coronavirus antibody study
By Isabel Vincent, NY Post, May 16, 2020 |
Boston’s mayor is holding firm to keeping lockdown plans in place, days after a new study revealed that nearly 90% of residents haven’t been exposed to the coronavirus.
With the state poised to release its reopening plans Monday, Mayor Marty Walsh is not ready to lift any regulations. Other parts of Massachusetts, however, are beginning to restart their economies.
“We can draw two preliminary conclusions from the results of this study,” Walsh said at a news conference Friday. “First, that the actions we took early on in this pandemic made a real difference in slowing the spread and, second, that the majority of our population still have not been exposed to the virus. This underscores what we already know, that we have to move cautiously and stay focused on what got us this far.”
Boston now has 11,395 cases of COVID-19, up 111 from a day earlier, Walsh said. He also reported nine new coronavirus deaths, for a total of 551.
The study, conducted by the Boston Public Health Commission and the Massachusetts General Hospital, sampled asymptomatic residents in four neighborhoods and found that only 9.9 percent of residents tested positive for antibodies to COVID-19.
Researchers found that one in 10 residents had developed antibodies and one in 40 could still be carrying the virus.
