It's a fair question. I used to think the same way. Basically, there's no concrete evidence of transmission in outdoor settings. Practically all the confirmed transmission are from indoor settings.
However, there's a saying "absence of evidence does not equal to evidence of absence"
While this countries contact tracing is all but a joke, other countries had done better. Singapore and Taiwan had done much more thorough contact tracing. But... even in those countries that appears to do an exhausting contact tracing, they've only manage to trace the origin and/or transmission path of not much more than 50% of their cases!
Put another way, even the best countries were UNABLE TO ACCOUNT for a good portion of their cases as to HOW it was transmitted! Where could those be?
That left a lot of other venues that the disease quite likely transmits, if less easily than those confirmed transmission venues.
Not to forget, there're 3 new strains of the virus that are MORE TRANSMITTABLE than the existing strains. So what we knew how it transmit, may not be all the way these new strains transmits.
And the tone and content of your posts make you sound like a narcissistic prick.Your use of capital letters and exclamation points make you sound like an absolutely nutcase of a person, in just about every post you make.
Compared to many who post here, I clearly am. But I don't tell others their higher risk tolerance is worthless!All you really needed to say was "my own personal risk tolerance is probably lower than many other people's"

It’s hard to believe that you’re not just trolling most of the time. Are you really that much of a self-involved asshole in real life, constantly patting yourself on the back and putting down others? That’s a rhetorical question of course - I’m not interested in actually engaging you. I’m just calling you out for being a loathsome dick over and over again, telling us about your stupid plans and trips and virtue signaling all the way about how progressive and liberal you are. No one gives a rat’s ass my guy.
