I have little doubt the leftists are dripping to have the economy tank and blame the Donald for all of this as a last ditch effort to gain control of the WH and both houses of congress.

Impeaching him didn't work!

Thoughts?

This stuff is getting out of hand.

Today i tried to take the misses some food and a change of clothes becuase she had to work  a double shift. (24 hrs) They had a nurse  at the door taking temps, passing out gloves and masks. The line and checks took  42 mins.  All so i could walk ~ 60' into the building drop off the bag at the vacant desk.  Takr 10 syeps back and watch the misses  pick it up in simlar garb.  10' was as close as we were allowed to get... 

We share a bed.  I know for a fact that we spread germs  back and forth all the time.

I am pretty sure the staff that i was exposed too for the check at the door was more than i have been exposed too in the last week.


Does not help that her car is in the shop for a coolent leak.  So i am driving her back and forth  anyways.   On the plus  side when i called aaa to have it towed.  From the time i called the 1800# ubtil i got a second call that they were waiting for me out side  the house was 12 min and i spent 7 on the phone with the 1800#.  The driver said it was the only tow of his shift.

Coming up on the second weekend since this, and we have heard nothing.  My guess is that it was just social media gossip. 

Good old social media.  As barber shops and coffee shops go away, social media makes sure the rumors and gossip remain.

Yep.

At least at the barber shop you were talking to men.  Not the soy boys on social media.   Well at the ones i went to

Can't even do that around here as the Governor has closed those as well. He considers then non-essential.

Just read that Germany is banning gatherings of 2 or more.  So, gatherings of 1 and below are ok??

I haven't read most of the thread yet, but wanted to make sure this was in here. The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) Situation Dashboard from WHO. 21,031 deaths so far, 884 in the U.S.

https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/685d0ace521648f8a5beeeee1b9125cd

I had a cold wet nose like a dog for a few days, and a cough for a couple of days that almost stopped tonight. Two nights ago I turned the thermostat down to 60 before I went to bed, like I've been doing. I also unhooked the electric blanket and put a regular blanket on the bed, which I  threw on the floor when I went to bed. I didn't check my temperature but I felt feverish. I laid there when it got down to 62-63 degrees, with a fan blowing on me until well after the sweat on my back dried up. I covered up from my feet to my waist with a sheet because the fan is by my feet and my toes get cold. I think I had a cold or something but except for getting really sweaty for a few hours it was very mild. If my head would ever quit hurting I'd be okay.

That was part of what I was referring to.  Even without this outbreak, barbers and coffee shops are going away.  However, right after closing the bars and dine in restaurants, hair dressers and barbers were shut down.  Tattoo came a day later, then massage, gyms, but all of our physical therapy places are still going full bore.

In the midst of all this, be wary of "selected info"

For instance, it was "loudly declared" (in print and talk headlines) that the US has now surpassed Italy in Corona confirmed cases!!!!!

But here are the numbers.  First thing to keep in mind is that the US population is over 5 times that of Italy, so the fact the US is slightly ahead of them is simply no big deal. 

Then look at the deaths.....Italy, with fewer cases than the US has over 6 times the deaths of the US.  So our status in comparison to Italy is extremely favorable...but that is not how it is sensationalized by the media...

United States    85,594   1,300
Italy                  80,589   8,215
