    If someone is ill, I don't think NOT helping them is a good idea.
    It's in the air.  Yes.  It is easily passed from person to person but isn't going to stop the virus. It will still be in the air.  Period.  The only way for no one to catch the virus that I can see is for everyone stop breathing. Then no one would have it.

    Punishing the unfortunate by imprisoning them who have COVID-19  is NOT going to help their mental or physical healing.  We will all still be breathing the same air.

    First, would have to be contagious and I still say no. That would turn into the biggest fiasco ever.

    It is interesting that some automatically assumed you were talking about COVID.

      Good point. What gets me is how many of them took it seriously, as evidenced by their responses.  (Shrug.)

    Violently ill can mean two different thing......it means you could be violently insane or maybe close to death with a huge array of differnt hugs...

    I do not believe being ill is a crime.
