like a driving/parking tickets, guilty until proven innocent.

Crimes require “mens rea” (kavanah). “Innocent until proven guilty” is well rooted in common law and applies to all criminal matters. They could make it a crime to deliberately infect someone, which would cover deliberately getting an infection (though criminal statutes against self-harm are dubious, note that if someone commits suicide they are no longer hung up on a gallows).
To end the pandemic, only count someone as having Covid19 if they have symptoms more serious than flu or a cold or allergies (they did this when testing the vaccine). The number of positive cases would become very small since 90% of cases don’t result in illness. Announce the vaccine works (in tests, the placebo was 99% effective, the real vaccine was 99.9% effective), and allow everything to reopen. Seriously encourage old and sickly people to stay home, and wear N95 masks if they venture outside. In other words, declare victory and get back to normal.December 30, 2020 4:38 pm at 4:38 pm #1933738
Stop testing people and it will disappear. Most tested people are not sick and are coming out positive. My friend sent back a unused test and results were positive. Who cares if the person has covid or not treat the sick like we always did and leave healthy people aloneDecember 30, 2020 4:54 pm at 4:54 pm #1933748
If you can compare Corona to something I would compare it to the sun. You can escape the sun and stay indoors and shut the blinds and only go out at night or wear special clothes and sun glasses. But you can’t escape the sun, the same is with Corona. You can lock your self, mask yourself and social distance you will still catch it if your body is susceptible to the illness. This has been proven time and time again with people who are so careful, just accept the illness is here and not everyone is “allergic” to corona that we have to close a world.December 30, 2020 5:02 pm at 5:02 pm #1933744December 30, 2020 5:53 pm at 5:53 pm #1933801besalelParticipant
participant: to avoid the fine, no one will get tested and people who could have been treated early will die because they did not get tested.
that is the shortest reason among a very long list of reasons why this may be the worst idea i ever heard of in my life to address any problem ever. The worst.December 30, 2020 6:04 pm at 6:04 pm #1933813
How about we go to test for cancer every two weeks we would save many lives as well. You have to live in the now and be normal, stop the testing.December 30, 2020 7:52 pm at 7:52 pm #1933821
people would just be careful. @besalell no. people would just be careful
not to end up being in a position where they might not have any choice to avoid being discovered w corona. 10000’s a lot of money. if it’s not enough we can up it.December 30, 2020 8:05 pm at 8:05 pm #1933826Reb EliezerParticipant
You are crackers. Cancer is not contamgeous and therefore it does not need that many testing. Colonoscopy at 50+ and mamogram at 40+ is recommended.December 30, 2020 8:09 pm at 8:09 pm #1933838FrumCyclistParticipant

Test people for the antibodies those that have it don’t need a vaccine everyone else gets vaccinated. Once you have 70% either vaccinated or having antibodies you have herd immunity and it’s over.
