Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

I've been puzzled at the difference in numbers between Norway and Sweden, since we know that many Norwegians were in the Austrian and north Italian alps for skiing vacations (and thus bringing the virus with them back home), and comparatively, this isn't really something that the Swedes do as much a...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

There's one thing that might be a factor here, in terms of numbers and control of the disease in Asia, vs. how the situation is in Europe, and how things might be in the US: There are two strains of SARS-CoV-2. One is slow, and milder, the other is very fast-moving, and aggressive. And it appears th...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Putting aside the Nazi-worthy comments, I thought there were some strict measures being implemented as we speak? What makes you think the future is really so bleak? Strict measures in the US? Well, after Trump realized his hotels are losing a lot of money, he wants to remove all of these "strict me...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

I usually balk at comparing average right wingers to Nazis, but now we have people saying that essentially we should kill off a percentage of the population for the economy...absolutely disgusting. The best part is that so many of these guys claim to be Christians...what would Jesus do? I guess he'...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

The reality is that would just cause a second wave (and potentially a third, fourth, etc.). "Young people" also have underlying conditions in many cases, and even those who aren't strongly effected just become carriers. It is not a viable option at all. It would also lead to greater economic disast...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Danish Institute of Public Health reports that one can reduce the infection rate with 30-50% by following the kind of rules they've implemented, which is social distancing, isolation, quarantine, strict hygiene, and so on. In north Norway a large number of municipalities have implemented stricter ru...

Yes, a guy with an uninformed opinion based on total ignorance. He has no understanding whatsoever.

it have some very good points. It doesn't. The writer is an uneducated idiot who peddles their own confusion to others. He’s a Shravakayanist. It’s his karmic perspective. In his blindness he is grabbing the part of the elephant that is appropriate for his karma. I wouldn’t be surprised if the arti...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

There are also other very real dangers that come with more power given to the government. Over here the measures taken by the governement (that just came into power) in the past two weeks are eerily similar to a coup and a sliding into dictatorship. In the best case scenario they will have "only" s...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

In just one day, Italy experienced 627 deaths. There's no conspiracy theory about that. It's very real, and very sad: (Edit: As I go to read the news, I can see that in the past day, Italy has had 793 deaths due to COVID-19. In total 4825 deaths in Italy alone.) https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...

Right, Norwegian. Then why are they, including Trump, trying to shut down people’s livelihood so aggressively? “Conspiracy theorist” as I may be; I do sometimes wonder if the ‘sheople’ need to be herded at times.... What’s going on here though? What's going on? It's about slowing down the infection...
