We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

California is probably hoping this solves their homeless problem.

There's probably some guy at the Social Security Administration presenting figures at an internal meeting and saying, "This could make Social Security solvent for another two decades!"

(This kind of stuff is less funny as I get closer to senior status, by the way.)

People are asked if they've been to China in the last 14 days. That's it. They don't even ask about Italy.

I know politics. But at some point this reckless behavior by our leader is going to get a lot of people killed and politics is going to intrude big time on your daily life whether you like it or not.
Fuck off!!!
In the lounge manner of the phrase.

*banned from the thread

There's a DC thread on this, so it probably belongs there instead. Maybe you got confused about which one you were posting in.

It hasn't been flawless, but I think the US has done a pretty darn good job thus far. Unless we find out that there's a mass infection somewhere we don't know about. (That seems unlikely)

There's very likely 1000s of cases right now we don't know about. We're barely testing. The question is whether it's deliberate - either for political reasons or to not induce a panic, or just incompetence in creating/distributing tests.

We'll know in as little as a few weeks if hospitals start being overwhelmed with people needed ventilators and oxygen. Can't really hide it at that point.

The only thing I know for sure is we didn't close any borders - which is what set me off.

Quite frankly, I bet a lot of people have (and have had) this already and just didn't realize what it was, chalking it up to the flu.
