Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

What a kind and wonderful response one and all. Thank you very much. My wife would not accept such a designation but she has put up with me over the term so I think she might just be humble. Your kind thoughts are powerful and I am grateful for them. Our children both have asthma so it isn't withou...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Yes, it's scary. I'm hoping we went into lockdown soon enough. We have 5 M people, about 300 confirmed cases, and only about 250 ventilators in the entire country... :heart: Mike Ventilation is a very complicated and dangerous medical procedure. You need a highly trained ICU nurse 24/7, a biochemis...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

In Canada this will peak at an unemployment rate of 20 to 25%. In my military training 20% is where civil order inevitably breaks down. Mnuchin already has predicted 20% unemployment before this is over: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/mar/18/steven-mnuchin-coronavirus-unemployment-treasur...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Been on American football chat boards... the delusion of these people thinking there will be a season... Its an interesting mix because politics generally takes a back seat.

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 ...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Mexico is the next major disaster area. They are totally unprepared, and they also have a complete douche as a leader. Russia may not have got the memo either They got it, but are ignoring it, and worse, are actively spreading disinformation about it. https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-rus...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

The mortality rate seems to depend heavily on the ability of the healthcare system to, well, care. The Koreans experienced a case-based mortality rate of 0.1%. Why? Because they tested the most intensively and treated aggressively. Italy reports a case-based mortality rate of about 8%, because test...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

I don’t buy it. At yesterday’s White House briefing they said New York had a 25% positive test return, but the national average is 8%. If there’s widespread infection the national percentage would show it. Or so it seems to my dilettante’s mind. If it's 25% where are the dead? If Oxford is right an...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Too bad there aren't enough tests to find out who is right. If they are right in 3 months this is over and containment is a waste of time I don’t buy it.

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Oxford saying the RO is much higher than expected and most in Italy and the Uk already have it. So the fatality rate is much lower than expected. Fighting blind is always such a joy.

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

Even with the most individual-friendly version of the bill, a lot of people are going to suffer. The only good that might come out of this would be a serious reappraisal of how the US has failed its people. Might. From the new data that's emerged in the past week, it's clear that the spread of hte ...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

I'm very worried about the US. I actually cannot believe the 'debate' that is taking place there. Most other places are unifying across party lines. America looks like it's playing the crisis directly into its ever deepening schism. I can see why this thread has been a bit heated at times; it's goi...

Re: Corona conspiracy theories

Nemo, that’s absurd. How could something like that be possible in our well-regulated economy? It’s about as likely as, say, companies demanding money from the government in return for not firing workers, then handing that money to their shareholders and firing the workers anyway. Things like this s...

Re: Corona conspiracy theories

I have a crazy conspiracy that the rich are going to rob us blind since they were making their money from being over leveraged again. That some banks and rich people were leveraged over 15 times in the London Bond Market like in 2008. They did this by recollateralizing your money and investments mul...
