    • Dow ends down over 780 points as Fed stokes recession fears.
    • Three additional deaths from COVID-19 have been reported in the U.S., bringing the total number of U.S. deaths to nine.

    Hmmm, the Arnold Sport Festival here in Columbus, OH has been cancelled. The athletes will still be able to compete but the public will not be allowed to attend due to the COVID-19 virus.

    II get it being it draws people from all over the world.

    Other; M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All vintage Polk have had crossover rebuilds and tweeter upgrades.

    Not sure if anything like the charts below was posted yet:
    The World Health Organization says the virus appears to particularly affect those over 60, and people already ill.

    Health experts believe Covid-19 does not transmit as efficiently as seasonal flu and is not generally passed on by people who have no symptoms.

    Don’t think so, @OleBoot.

    Even the 80+ still have an 85% chance of survival (based solely on age), and those with a cardiovascular problem, an 89% chance of survival.

    Now, if you’re 80+, with all four of those conditions, you should immediately consider a sex change, because as a female, that will improve your chances by about 1%.

    Supposedly, this virus can easily mutate. If so I wonder if it will mutate into a non-event, or mutate into a much more deadly disease.

    Funny how the Coronavirus, and fears of a Recession all come after the failed attempt of impeachment.

    Just saying it’s quite the coincidence...

    He was impeached, just not found guilty.

    Apparently I lead a very sheltered life; I've never hear of "wish" and I have no idea what those masks are or could be used for other than for Halloween.
    If there is an actual use for them somehow I don't believe I want to know what it is.

    Yes, I heard in as little as 24hrs. I wonder if this makes an effective vaccine more difficult? It could be like horseshoes, close is good enough I suppose.

    Now 11 deaths in U.S, including one in California.
    • Italy and Japan approximately 3,00O each.
    • France, Germany and Spain have all exceeded 200 cases.
    • Singapore, Hong Kong, Switzerland and the U.K. = around 100 cases.

    If small, wealthy countries like Switzerland and Singapore (with free health care and PTO for every employee) have already identified over 100 cases, what are the chances there will be fewer than 100 cases in each of the ten or fifteen most populous states in the U.S.?

    Correction:

    Italy and Japan have approximately 3,000 cases each (not 3,000 deaths).
