I think he stated his point very clearly - there is a broad range of risk
perceptions about COVID-19.  I was all for hopping on a plane and going to
Vancouver.  Actually, if I was gonna get sick, Vancouver is probably a much
better place with better healthcare than the US.

The worry and fear is just increasing people risks of getting sick on the
off chance they are exposed.  Stress suppresses immune function. Of course,
cookies and sodas do that as well.
