Why don't Americans listen to the CDC and not travel during the Thanksgiving Holiday?

Americans don't listen and this will lead to a National Lockdown. If the CDC says don't do something, you listen and don't question it. Typical Americans, arrogant, self-centered, think they know better than Doctors and Science. We were warned.


Please be serious when answering. If you want joke go to the corner store or deli.

Update 2:

@griggle-How long ago did the CDC reverse itself on wearing mask? If more Americans wore mask, Covid-19 hospitalizations and deaths will decrease by 95%. You need to stop watching Newsmax, Fox News and read the CDC and WHO websites. I forgot. Americans don't read but only go by news reported by over made up Blondes on Fox News and Newsmax. 

Update 3:

The World Health Organization and Centers For Disease Control are the two leading authorities on Covid. WHO is not “foreign.” You sound like a dumb American who speaks only one language and doesn’t travel beyond their borders. Get some class and culture.

    Because the CDC and all the rest lost the  respect and trust they once had by taking political positions.  The CDC and all of the Federal government is our servant and not our master.  WHO is foreign and has no business telling any American anything..

     Because the “expert”s never do follow their own rule’s zj

    Simple. Look at the message Trump has pushed on Twitter and by not wearing a mask in public. Now compare it to messages the CDC have sent to the public. They've never had a consistent message for what the public should do. Trump has always been undercutting the CDC and the CDC keeps changing their message as they learn more about the virus.

    So, because of that, covid has turned into a political issue that people take sides on. Half follow science and half follow the president.

    --  Because Americans, in general, are arrogant, greedy, selfish and self-centred. They will continue to defy CDC rules and congregate in homes with large family groups, travel everywhere and generally ignore safety proceedures.

    There's a reason the USA is the epicenter of the pandemic  I think you know what that reason is.  Google "meanwhile in America" if you need more context.

    Yes, many don't. Travel is down by a projected mere 10% for Thanksgiving. We're in for an unprecedented--albeit preventable--horror come December and January.

    I don't understand the whining. If you have to miss one Thanksgiving, you have to. That's it. You'll live.

    You need to put the word "some" in front of "Americans" in your question.  There are plenty of stupid people who will ignore the CDC warning and exercise their "right" to get sick and spread Covid.  There are also plenty of smart people who won't.

    Because politicians are not listening to the CDC in the first place.  Lockdowns are not even recommended now.  Rather the vulnerable [elderly and sick] should be kept out of harm's way, children should go to school, and those old enough to manage it should wear masks and observe social distancing.  

    And it seems that the politicians who advocate the strictest restrictions seem to be the ones who do whatever they want in private.

    You are right, blue or red, Americans believe and do as they wish to. Both will be gathering, red out in the open, blue hiding it claiming they were social distancing and such. The pubic face will be different but the private one, will be the same. Both will cause spikes and kill grandma. The blue will then blame the red, the red will say FU we can do what we want, nothing will change.

    You claim to read CDC and WHO websites yet fail to mention that over 70% of cases.  Are people who claim to wear their masks the majority of the time.

    There is no evidence that id everyone wore their masks all the time, that cases would have been decreased by 90/95%. That is a talking point only. That is also not defending those who refuse to wear their mask. Which is the common talking point to counter that BS.

    Like the cdc that said masks were unnecessary. Then backtracked. If you're making rules for a country have some idea what you're talking about before you start telling folks what to do.
