Re: COVID-19 Discussion

The US has officially passed both Italy and China as the country with the most cases in the world.

We still have 9 states and 1 territory who have yet to report any numbers for the day as well.

Re: COVID-19 Discussion

I saw a post on another forum where a guy who had been unable to work his restaurant job managed to get a job cooking in a hospital's cafeteria. Said he did it because (paraphrasing here) "I was tired of doing nothing, so I decided to try and help how I could by making sure the frontline workers cou...

Re: What are your expectations?

The question becomes how long... sooner or later you have to do it. We can't wait until after the last person has it. How many people in the U.S. do you think had it or died from it in dec/jan/feb. Not very many. With how quickly it's transmitted in groups we would have started to see trends earlie...

Re: What are your expectations?

Hong Kong was on lockdown for 6 weeks before they started loosening the restrictions a bit. Just over a week later, a second wave of infections has begun to come up, and the cases are coming in faster than they were initially: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/china-hong-kong-sar/ Ma...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

Oh I know that and why they're essential. It was just funny to see how quickly the email went out, like they had it sitting in their saved drafts folder with the mouse ready to click during every conference Baker gave. Any of you see the clip where Biden referred to our Governor as "Charlie Parker" ...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

Baker announced state-wide non essential businesses closed... Guessing that is why your town acted today. Right after that I got an email from the nearby liquor store that let their whole DL know that they still will remain open (because they qualify as essential) and are still offering free delive...

Re: COVID-19 Discussion

Italy is only testing the sick, how many people are infected and fine but haven't been tested? It skews the death rate numbers greatly there. Which is why the current numbers show a mortality rate of 8.3% (this is deaths vs. ALL cases, not just deaths vs. all ended cases (combo of deaths and recove...

Re: COVID-19 Discussion

So after the 3 week restuarant/bar ban then what?? The virus will still be here After you have contracted COVID-19, after 2 weeks, the symptoms will disappear if you're still alive. If folks are quarantining themselves and social distancing themselves, the chances of catching the virus should be su...

Re: COVID-19 Discussion

^^ good one.. while funny, it's not really appropriate if someone in the White House said it. The phrasing on this is a bit weird, making it possible to be interpreted as "because someone in the White House said it, it is no longer appropriate" when in reality it's most definitely meant to be "it's...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

Andrew Yang's policies are also about to get a lot more support. So many people across all kinds of industries are about to have at the very best reduced wages for a while. I imagine a change to the "everyone at age 18 gets $1000/mo" to something like granting the power to do so when a state of emer...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

Also shows a split on how H1N1 was handled. Your right, that's the climate now. People prefer to think that what their side is saying is the truth, and take it over what experts in the field are saying. Because of that, it's unlikely we'll ever be as prepared as we need to be when a new pandemic co...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

Bottom line is it has happened before and will happen again.. what's alarming is we've never prepared for pandemics Well our current president did tell the nation that everything was under control and that cases would soon be going down in this countr...
