    I won't play your game. Your "logic" is "so we're not 100% SURE this will work, we need to NOT do it." Really? So in YOUR book of logic, if a solution isn't 100%, it's not worth doing?

    Come back after you grow up, and understand that nothing is 100%, and stop the lazy **** arm-chair quarter backing. It's a cheap-shot that a 2nd grader could pull off.

    Being NEGATIVE is EASY, any moron can do it. Give me solutions if want my respect.

    I have given you too much of my oxygen. You are cut off.

    I think I stopped reading this thread at page 30, but I don't like how it is called Corona Virus. "The way to stop the spread of Corona Virus is to..."

    If it's going to be referred to as CV, it should be referred to as THE Corona Virus.

    I was sick last year from flu. No. I was sick from THE flu. And when I was sick with the flu and had to go to toilet. No. THE toilet. It just sounds like bad grammar or someone forgot a word. Why isn't Jimmy making this post?

    I think there's more (to, I just did it :s ) focus on with THIS Corona virus than the prefix "the".

    I try to proof read my posts but it's usually after I post them. I often think the prefix "the" needs to be inserted. I did it today in fact. :)

    I understand your beef, but let us slide. We have a lot on our minds instead of proper grammar unless we have time to re-read our posts.

    My take is that both partners were still negotiating. Under normal circumstances, no big deal. But these are not normal times. If anything, it lit a fire under both, and it looks like they both have come to an agreement! :smile:

    Whom ever was in charge of the water distribution in Puerto Rico should never be in charge of something that big again. I believe there was poor management oversight.

    As of Friday (3/27) the US has 100,000 cases of COVID, but only 1500 deaths from it. I guess that is good news.

    The day isn’t over yet, Bud, and it’s not really good news, since it means that the number of cases identified in the U.S. tripled in three days. Of course, we know that those cases were there anyway, but they weren’t being counted, so, in that respect, it is good news that at least we are starting to realize what we are dealing with. This is what everyone was saying when we only had sixty cases identified: that there were far more undetected cases roaming around, spreading the disease.

    The day isn’t over and there are currently 104,000 cases in the U.S. including 1,700 deaths. If the cases double again in three or four days, we’ll have 200,000 cases. We could easily be looking at 500,000 cases in two weeks time, or worse.

    This is only getting started, and New York will not be the only hotspot before long.

    This is from the British epidemiologist, Neil Ferguson, who some thought had walked back his predictions:
    1/4 - I think it would be helpful if I cleared up some confusion that has emerged in recent days. Some have interpreted my evidence to a UK parliamentary committee as indicating we have substantially revised our assessments of the potential mortality impact of COVID-19.

    2/4 -This is not the case. Indeed, if anything, our latest estimates suggest that the virus is slightly more transmissible than we previously thought. Our lethality estimates remain unchanged.

    3/4 - My evidence to Parliament referred to the deaths we assess might occur in the UK in the presence of the very intensive social distancing and other public health interventions now in place.

    4/4 - Without those controls, our assessment remains that the UK would see the scale of deaths reported in our study (namely, up to approximately 500 thousand).

    Alea jacta est!

    And yet you keep responding....just to get the last word in. Please, oh great master of the Polk Clubhouse....put me on your feared "ignore list" of members who dont fall lock-step with your political opinions. The sad thing is you and I have had pretty much zero correspondence on this site until this thread came up. Whats even sadder is my comment on the POTUS and the GM ventilator idea probably being a good idea at this point was actually meant to be an olive branch to put this behind us. Instead you go on a tirade about being a 'better American' than I, some how tie Obama into it, and then indirectly call me a moron. Pure class. Lastly, I would like to post all the PMs I received in support of someone finally calling out your intranet gang of political opinion police...but that would just further the game you refer to. Most people come hear not to listen to constant political bickering they can easily assimilate on Fair and Balanced or MSNBC. Have a pleasant evening sir.

    That’s amazing, to me, that the social isolation has such a positive impact on the death rate.

    This is only getting started, and New York will not be the only hotspot before long.

    We could be looking at 500,000 cases huh. How about 39 million will get the flu.400,000 will be hospitalized, and maybe 10k will die from CV, 20K ? Flu is roughly at 23k....and that's just a so-so year. Real bad years and flu deaths can reach 50k+

    Btw, I get this whole bending of the curve thing, in order to keep from overloading the HC system....got it, check that box, good idea.

    Now, isn't those of you crying for more testing, going to also overload the system ? Once you determine a person has it, you gotta do something about it right ? Maybe that's why there isn't as big a rush for test kits as there is for medical supplies/vents.

    Every highly populated area/city has the potential to be a hot spot, that's not anything new. Maybe if NY , as early as early March, wouldn't have told it's people to continue to go out on the town, go to parades, dinner, theater, live a normal life, they might have had better control over the spread. The whole month of February, they did zip. You can look at the timeline posted earlier, look at what was going on in Feb., even January. Still NY chose, just for spite, to ignore. Fine, he played with your lives, not his. He played with your livelihood, not his. He'll get a paycheck no matter what, will NY'ers ? He won't go bankrupt, will other NY'ers ? Mardi gras went forward, California was having events still. Even my Town, Chicago, the people are just boneheads and don't care if they spread it. Can't legislate common sense. Suburbs are a whole other world compared to the big cities. People are curteous, keep their distance, ask if you need help. Nobody is getting together in the parks out here in numbers out of spite. If your currently unemployed, and live in the city, stay with friends or family in the burbs. You chances of catching this virus just went down bigly. :)

    How so? Because there are differing political opinions in the world other than yours, or because you belief....what? Please explain....
