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!

Feel like they missed a large PPV opportunity. Same with Puppy Bowl, can we get the regular season televised now?

yep, without a triage in the parking lot, anyone walks into an ER that’s positive, possibly infects everyone from the person checking them in, works on the insurance, janitors etc. etc.

I'm glad I'm not in my 20's again.

I was wondering how close to capacity they were to begin with. The lack of context made it sound like it was getting bad, but obviously with no testing, you have no idea if or when it'll happen.

My parents (who live in KC) are over 60 and aren't taking it all that seriously, so when I read "KC is preparing to be out of ICU beds with everyone on a vent by the weekend", you can imagine that's a bit worrisome.

Interesting stat, which is probably an outlier and I'm suspect of the data per our own growth, but global new cases increased by only a thousand since yesterday. Previous day was ~16,000

Lol. Young idiots. I was one of them so I'm not trying to sound like an old man judging.

Unfortunately, some of them will learn the hard way this virus isn't a joke.

no, I wasn’t saying they are expecting full capacity due to coronavirus patients filling the hospital but just full capacity. And no one gets an ICU bed without being on a ventilator in at least one hospital. Hospitals are busy this time of the year just with the “normal” flu. A lot of people with COPD catch a bug and it pushes them Over the edge and they are on a vent for a week.

While the rest of the world has Hooters and Tilted Kilt, we have ASU.

Its the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago and guess it was just a news piece I thought wrong on a live feed.
