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!

How many people are going to self-report under these conditions? The former head of Eli-Lily just told congress that tests and vaccines are going to remain very expensive. The drug industry is seeing massive $$$ over this.

Good luck rolling the dice and finding out what your insurance covers and what it doesn't. A friend of mine just got a surprise bill for $10k a year after his kid was in the NICU. The hospital was in network but a doc working the floor wasn't (billed as an independent contractor of course). Lot's of people who think they have great insurance will find out they don't.

Um that's what they charged him. Have you not been paying attention to what's going on with healthcare bills the last 10 years?

So the narrative is that the US is a hellhole because we can't just take a couple weeks paid time off any time the media tells us we should be paranoid?

A flu test costs 5 dollars genius.

This is definitely a time for that. While 2,814 deaths from Coronavirus sounds bad, the flu kills between 291,000 and 646,000 each year.


Well, if you were trying to convince me to murder my neighbors and raid their medicine chests for Tamiflu and tussin, you've succeeded.
