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!

The numbers coming in from the nursing homes around the US are pretty devastating. They completely dropped the ball on those

There's no ripping the band aid off. People aren't consuming if you're "open" or not.

Barring a miracle, the only way out is forward. People that are at risk need to protect themselves, the rest of us need to make our own decisions and not blame others for the fallout.

They probably would have been better off building immunity since they are healthy.
It says the results were 60% male 80% white. Unless I missed a bunch of Royals signings, I don't think this is the players or they are a small part of it.

Thats what damn near every country is gonna end up doing. The small Asian ones that were on it from the beginning won't, but pretty much everywhere else will.

There may never be an effective/scalable vaccine, but society must re-open and go back to normal and not some bullshit “new normal”.

During the 1968-1969 Hong Kong Flu Pandemic which killed 100,000+ Americans (mostly ages 65+) and had an R0 comparable to COVID-19 (1.06-2.06 during the first wave and 1.21-3.58 during the second wave), there was no “social distancing” or lockdowns.

Instead America went on with their lives and historical events such as Woodstock, and millions gathering to watch and celebrate Neil Armstrong walk on the moon took place.

Meanwhile 50 years later people are now locked in their homes and afraid to get a haircut.

What is it about hardware stores that makes people feel safe consuming onsite? Is it a specific demographic? I also saw lines of dudes outside flower shops yesterday like they were having a fire sale on soundbars.

You are probably right the experts didn't factor in any previous pandemics and just ****ing winged it.

There might be a possibility that this New virus that is baffling experts is worse than an internet warrior on football forum without 0 medical knowledge thinks it is.

Hardware stores are a shitshow, I just think it's the idea of doing home improvement makes people feel like they are different because they are self doers or something.

“Whatever the White House is doing for the president and vice president, that’s the protocol I want to use for my employees. And if I can’t adhere to that, then why would I put them at risk?” said Cuban, who added he’s still not going out to eat at restaurants, even though Texas started to allow limited dine-in service.

Most Americans do not have access to daily Covid-19 testing, Cuban said, and “that’s the problem.” He said Americans have to effectively ask themselves: “Who can we trust with our lives?”

Cuban laying it down....

And what was the CFR of that?

You acknowledge that we shut down in 1917-1918, right?
