It's tough on younger people not being able to let loose a bit but they are going to get things shut down again.

So if you are under 40 and get this, you have a 20% chance of winding up in hospital.

I really would've lost it if in my 20's I couldn't go out.  But even then, as much of a social butterfly as I used to be, I think that the thought of getting my parents or grand parents sick may have been a deterrent.

It's really a mindset I find.  I know people my age and even older who don't seem to care.

I stand corrected. I was thinking of it as a percentage of total infections but of course it isnít if it just about U 39ís

Sitting here watching a Super Rugby match from Eden Park in Auckland with 34,000 people in the stands.
This happened today. Someone got it right.

True but they were also very proactive about dealing with this early. They didnít screw around while things gradually got worse.
