“Covid-19 is like eating raw cookie dough… We know the risk. now let us live our lives”

Eating raw cookie dough could have salmonella dangers, but many people still eat it. Some have compared this risk to the risk of contracting COVID-19. “Covid-19 is like eating raw cookie dough… We know the risk. now let us live our lives” is a saying that has been printed on a restaurant sign and was posted on Facebook on about June 30, 2020.

Many people disputed this message. “Someone said covid-19 is like raw cookie dough: they know the risk, so let them live their lives. has anyone told them that covid-19 kills people and causes permanent harm to your body?????” was posted on Twitter by nicole on June 30, 2020.

“We’re all brave in our own way. For example, I am not afraid of raw cookie dough” is another raw cookie dough saying.


Wikipedia: Cookie dough
Cookie dough refers to a blend of cookie ingredients which has been mixed into a malleable form that has not yet been cooked by heat. The dough is then separated and the portions baked as individual cookies, or eaten as it is.

Health risks
Because of the presence of raw egg and raw flour, the consumption of uncooked cookie dough increases the possibility of contracting foodborne illness. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) strongly discourages the consumption of all food products containing raw egg or raw flour because of the threat from disease-causing bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli.

Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic is an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China, in December 2019, and was recognised as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 March 2020.

The longer this goes on the harder it is not to fight on FB, so I’ll say it here instead: No, Covid 19 isn’t like eating raw cookie dough where you know the risk and do it anyways because if I eat raw cookie dough the cashier at Dunkin doesn’t get salmonella from me you dumb ho.

Covid-19 is like eating raw cookie dough, except when you eat the cookie dough it might kill you, or maybe it won’t kill you at all, but it also might kill your mom or grandma, and we don’t want that because mom and grandma make the best cookies. It might kill your lil brother too, then he’ll never get to eat cookies ever again.
Its you’re own choice to make though ig. Go ahead, eat the cookie dough.

This sign is quite disingenuous.  Eating raw cookie dough indeed can be a health danger but only to oneself.  COVID-19 is incredibly communicable between people; hence, it has evolved into a pandemic, especially here in the US where too many people think like this message board writer.  As someone who believes in scientific facts, I’ve never heard of raw cookie dough being communicable or causing a pandemic.  SO AT A MINIMUM WEAR YOUR FACE MASK, WASH YOUR HANDS & USE DISINFECTANT AND PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING.  Then I’ll be happy to let you live your life so I’ve a better chance of living mine!
