    “So … this ‘coronavirus’ thing … how many days longer can it be expected to last?”

    Well, now that – (at very long last …) – people are finally beginning to ask that question, I predict that the backlash is finally beginning. Real people are waking up, and they are asking themselves why the office staff at the telephone company or the liquor store are wearing masks and hiding behind face-shields when, for the past twenty years or so, they never thought to do such things and, lo and behold, never got sick (other than “the common cold” or “the occasional flu”).

    People are finally beginning to – as we computer-geeks like to say – “have their ‘BOZO-bit’ flipped.” Turns out that the sky is not falling, after all.

    But – there will now be hell to pay. “Hell hath no fury but a nation scorned.”

        Don’t belittle the messenger here, Bigly – “it makes perfect sense, and you know it!”

        For many decades, people “now and then” caught a cold … and there is a rich industry of over-the-counter remedies for this. “OMG! Common colds are typically caused by … Coronaviruses!”

        Likewise, when the days started to get short and cold, “the flu” made its rounds.

        … and we somehow rarely paused to consider what public health authorities full-well knew: that “the flu” kills(!) tens of thousands of people each and every year.

        Basically, the draught that has been foisted upon us all, now, is that “there is something that we can do about it.” That if we utterly-shut-down(!) our interactions of every sort, “within twenty feet’s proximity of any other person,” we will somehow “Flatten The Curve.™” And thereby somehow save ourselves.

        All I can say is this: when I accepted my high school diploma, I was neither wearing gloves nor a mask. Just sayin’ …

    I see the people with nothing but conspiracy theories are getting testy under pressure. I guess they’re used to blowing into these forum threads and leaving their useless unscientific crap all over the place and if anyone challenges them they act like bullies. But now the pressure is on. Everything they claimed wouldn’t happen is now happening. It’s not a hoax. COVID-19 is real and it’s been a bit devastating. And we’re not anywhere near the end of it. Meanwhile countless stupid people are still spreading the virus because they refuse to comply with common sense guidelines to stop travelling, stop taking cruises, stop having parties with dozens of other people, etc. People are dying but the conspiracy theorists seem to only be interested in their own inconvenience. They make excuses for the deaths … the person had some pre-existing condition (including age) which somehow justifies their DEATH. As a person with an elderly mother who unfortunately votes Dem but I still love her and don’t want her to die of pneumonia, I hate anyone who writes off the elderly or other vulnerable people like they are garbage! My mother is not garbage, and your whacked out conspiracy thinking, devoid of facts and logic, will not make her so.

      Super – something like this impacts people in all different ways – the politics get in the way.

      You’re right to align us – this isn’t political and now we are all starting to wake to what this is or could be.

      Hold on everyone – like trump says, this is going to be a f’ed up 2 weeks.

      The quicker we all stay home and chill, the quicker we all get back to work.

      Madam,

      COVID-19 is no less real than seasonal flu. You know…the disease which kills 25,000 to 40,000 folks in the US each year.

      The CDC tells us that the mortality rate for seasonal flu, using the same formula being used to calculate the mortality rate for COVID-19 — deaths per infected by testing — is 10%.

      COVID-19 is around 1%.

      So my question is this: why are we crashing our economy over COVID-19 when we didn’t for seasonal flu?

      Please…make your case for why this is so different such that our country is throwing tens of millions out of work and crashing our economy? But such actions were deemed unnecessary 6 months ago for seasonal flu which has a much higher mortality rate per known by testing infected?

      Persuade us please.

        You weren’t paying attention?!

        It’s all about the over-whelming of our medical system.

        Do you want to see triage and bulldozers pushing bodies into mass graves?

        It’s ALWAYS been about keeping our medical system and it’s workers from a fate worse than death, as well as about saving lives.

        Are you OK with pictures on the world news showing this carnage in NY? I can’t believe that’s true.

        Where were you when all the doctors have been explaining this? Don’t you read the articles? Surely you can’t be this obtuse/

        Some of the more formerly reasonable members of this forum seem to have gone off the deep end. It’s disheartening.

          What you may not be aware of is that our healthcare system is on the verge of breaking point every single year during flu season.

          Hospitals with no extra beds or vents, having to move patients to other hospitals.

          This happens EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR.

    Every time I filled up at the pump and saw the 10% ethanol sticker, I wondered what the people at the end of this inter glacial respite would think of putting food in their gas tanks.
    Try to find an 8oz bottle of hand sanitizer w/ 60-70 percent of the stuff. Meanwhile I put 2-1/2 gallons of the stuff in my PU on a fill up.
