Here I am sitting thinking “no one would want to be in the US right now.”
And these people are all scurrying to get inside the doom tank.
They are waiting in line for 10 hours to get inside this tank of doom.
This is the scene at O’Hare airport. The traveler who took the photo said it’s a 6-hour wait for bags then on to customs for 2-4 more of waiting in shoulder-to-shoulder crowds. Police are handing out water and disinfectant wipes. @fly2ohare #ord #coronavirus #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/UTx9E0nj1s

We keep getting sent pictures of thousands people packed together in @DFWAirport customs lines. There are extreme lines because of #coronavirus questionnaires, but because of the lines, there's no way to keep distance to prevent spread… (@wfaa) pic.twitter.com/sf6TznoBBW

Another look at what's happening inside @DFWAirport and the lines at customs. Travelers say they've been in line 3-5 hours… Airport telling people delays are due to "enhanced screening for passengers" who have been abroad. @NBCDFW Video: Dorothy Lowe pic.twitter.com/beVj4TAsDM

JFK airport in New York City has turned into a #CoronaVirus breeding ground along side O'Hare in Chicago. Crowds waiting in a very long lines in close quarters with thousands of people to clear US Customs' useless enhanced #COVID19 screening measures.pic.twitter.com/fyr8fyT0vq

Yeah, I’d say having all those people without masks on in close quarters like that is probably not the smartest thing right now.
But I guess Donald Trump is about to go full “herd immunity” on us, so maybe this is good?
As for me, I’ll keep my mask on and wait for the herd.
