The ridiculousness of locking down – especially the outdoors – is counterproductive and actually makes people worse off with respect to this disease.

Increasingly we’re learning that not only is the virus destroyed by sunshine, but getting out into the open is important for helping your immune system fight the virus. Places that are opening up are not seeing cases spike, people who continue to work are overall healthier, and the majority of new cases in New York are from people in lockdown.

And we also have a lot of evidence that the severity of the infection is related to the duration of the exposure. Which is one more reason why we should want people out and exercising, in the great outdoors.
