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 suck part is the numbers for recovery in this country are going to take a while before they start to appear and outpace deaths. We can expect lock downs until that happens I would assume.

Hell according to the known data only 150,000 people world wide are currently infected because 100,000 have already reached outcome.

That would be accurate. There are approximately 155,000 active cases world wide right now

Doesnít everyone want them to get their equipment staged in the proper places to prepare for this? Whether itís factory deliveries or theyíre moving equipment to get ready for deployments to help fight the bug, isnít that what we want?

You think tanks are needed to fight a virus?

I think it was a bit irresponsible to throw out that number. Then shortly after to put the entire state on a "shelter in place" policy. Almost like one was said to help justify the other.
I was with you until the end-- if the inference of your statement is that he had some nefarious motive for keeping people inside. I think it was using a worst-case-scenario (where nobody social distances and life had never been impacted by Covid) to hammer home to people how important the social distancing/isolation technique is to stemming the flow. It's not the most intellectually honest argument (at least the way I've laid it out; maybe I misunderstood it) but it's not the worst approach to getting people to understand the impact. You have to realize that there are a TON of people out there with zero grasp about how infectious diseases work and their role in its transmission/proliferation.

I won't get into this discussion here because it is a non-political thread.
