    Getting pretty intense here. Everyone in the state got an emergency message asking for licensed healthcare workers. My wife's ICU went from totally empty to about half-full in about 5 days. I suspect...
  2. Like Astralis said, the churches and restaurants...

    Like Astralis said, the churches and restaurants are not all closed. Certain states are not only not taking action, but prohibiting local areas from taking action. Mississippi is going to get rocked....
  3. Rural areas still go to churches and they still...

    Rural areas still go to churches and they still go to town to go to restaurants. That's enough to get infected, especially if a bunch of people from the city try to flee out there. And those areas...
  4. I would not necessarily look at China and be...

    I would not necessarily look at China and be convinced that they are out of the woods. The situation is changing daily and this virus is likely to be with us for quite some time.

    What we need to...

    $5/mask, ey? Nice little mark-up there.

    I've a few P100s left-over from a minor home project. Definitely will be adding a few more to the stockpile after this fiasco, but will need to wait a...
  6. There is still limited testing capacity and they...

    There is still limited testing capacity and they need to control utilization. Right now state guidance is only to test those hospitalized with unexplained pneumonia and people living or working in...
  7. He is in self-quarantine. However, asymptomatic...

    He is in self-quarantine. However, asymptomatic transfer is still a possibility. Not impossible he didn't already get someone at work sick.
  8. Guy in the office next to me stayed home today...

    Guy in the office next to me stayed home today because he has an intense fever, major dry cough, and shortness of breath. Can't get tested because his symptoms aren't severe enough yet.

    Good...
  9. I don't disagree that HRC would be better, I just...

    I don't disagree that HRC would be better, I just don't think it's going to much difference at this particular stage. Things had to get bad somewhere before we could start taking aggressive steps. I...
  10. Yes. This crisis has not been managed well...

    Yes. This crisis has not been managed well anywhere in the Western world. There is no evidence at all that this situation would be appreciably better under any other President. Trump is not President...
  11. Our factory considers itself critical, so, still...

    Our factory considers itself critical, so, still going to work! People are pretty peeved. We are not actually critical.
    Wife works in a hospital. Wife specifically works in a hospital that sounds...
  12. MIL: Serious. Cancelled baby-sitting. Fine by me....

    MIL: Serious. Cancelled baby-sitting. Fine by me.
    FIL: Thinks it is just the flu. Not allowed to work from home, even though all his work is already remote (he helps factories on other continents...
  13. We are expecting a state-wide lockdown order in...

    We are expecting a state-wide lockdown order in IL tomorrow or Saturday. However, the IL National Guard said on the good ol' Facebook that those are not their vehicles and they haven't moved...
  14. I would not bank on vaccines and I would not...

    I would not bank on vaccines and I would not necessarily bank on herd immunity, either. Right now we do not have any vaccines for human coronaviruses. We obviously will try VERY hard for this one,...
  15. Vinegar is probably the most underrated...

    Vinegar is probably the most underrated condiment. I keep a whole bunch in the pantry. I probably should've stocked up, because I tend to use it a lot more when I have more time, but oh well. At...
  16. The flu does not go from practically non-existent...

    The flu does not go from practically non-existent to overwhelming the Italian hospital system in a month. COV-19 did. It will likely do the same in huge sections of the West if we continue to operate...
  17. The problem is, if you tell people not to do...

    The problem is, if you tell people not to do anything stupid, we will continue to do stupid things, because we do not have a culture that takes influenza-type illnesses seriously. We don't wash our...
  18. If 80% of the people don't require medical...

    If 80% of the people don't require medical treatment, that means 20% of the people DO require medical treatment. There is no medical system on Earth that can handle that kind of burden, if we...
  19. Looks like the normies are paying attention now....

    Looks like the normies are paying attention now. Coronavirus dominated conversation pretty much all day.

    Unfortunately, friends and family did NOT take the advice I gave them 3 weeks ago. They...

    Went back to work today. Apparently several employees are out sick, including some employees who NEVER get sick, and we haven't bother stocking the automatic hand sanitizers at every entrance. Email...
