  1. perhaps a silly question but does anyone here believe they might've already had the virus, but were never tested to confirm? I've been hearing this around from people, who say "oh my brother had a terrible cough the end of Feb after returning from a business trip where he flew..." things like that. Maybe they did have it, who knows. So hard to say. There was also some research posted that said half of coronavirus carriers show no symptoms...https://futurism.com/neoscope/half-coronavirus-carriers-no-symptoms general disclaimer, I have no thoughts on the validity of the article but sharing it for discussion. There is a number of other related articles on the website which are interesting topics “Early results from deCode Genetics indicate that a low proportion of the general population has contracted the virus and that about half of those who tested positive are non-symptomatic,” said [Iceland’s chief epidemiologist Thorolfur] Guðnason. “The other half displays very moderate cold-like symptoms.”
  2. I started a personal diary document 3 weeks ago when Gov Dewine announced schools & bars/restaurants & other businesses were closed. We are on week 3. I include the stats, the news headlines, and my own personal experiences and tidbits about work, family, neighbors. Its really hard to know what to prioritize at the moment
  3. does she watch a lot of fox news? I've heard that mentality is common with it's viewers...
  4. South Korea has 1 border, with North Korea. Less than 1/6th the population of the US. Yes they did a nice job reacting & containing, but so many variables in terms of international travel, exposure, local contamination, etc etc etc
  5. Perhaps. Maybe. Possibly. But totally impossible to say. There are so many variables for every scenario - amount of testing, ability to sequester people, level of interaction/regional travel, etc etc etc Also impossible to say if any of these countries is out of the woods yet. Maybe South Korea has to deal with steady rate of infections for many months on while others experiencing a spike move on to noramalcy sooner. Nobody really knows do they?
  6. I've said it before & I'll say it again. the political correlations that some are attempting to make here are just idiotic. To say wealthy/conservative areas are seeing a spike because they didn't take it seriously based on watching Fox News is crazy. People make their own decisions every day based on risk factors. What sort of cable news they happen to watch is irrelevant. Plenty of elderly fox news watchers are huddled up with doors locked not going anywhere since this was announced.
  7. So what's your big theory? That these conservative areas are getting infected because they listened to Fox News & the pres & didn't isolate fast enough, so they deserve to get sick? And who suggested a page up that this was just a big effort to let it run rampant in urban areas & kill off liberal strongholds? WTF
  8. you are nuts. Totally impossible. THe same number of people will get sick regardless. It's just over what period of time. Jeez. As if this incredible virus somehow could've been avoided. By what, a massive bubble?
  9. I agree with your assessment. But we've all been wrong before. Biden has suddenly become invisible...
  10. and despite all that's been posted above, somehow Trump's approval rating is at an all-time-high.... https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/president_trump_job_approval-6179.html
  11. No defense of Boeing, but curious if you had same level of disgust for the auto makers that were bailed out back in 2009.
  12. see we are talking about 2 different things. You are talking about government's response to the pandemic. Criticizing Trump or others is fine, I'm not going to argue one bit. Yes that's political. I'm talking about peoples response to the pandemic. It's affecting all across the spectrum, young/old, rich/poor, urban/rural, etc. This is not political. It's just human beings dealing with major challenges
  13. following someone on social media is different from knowing them. I know people who work in Warehouse district, flats east bank, etc. They are hurting bad and it's going to get a lot worse. Trust me, they are angry
  14. See there you did it again. Trying to frame a general response of frustrated people as a "populist right".... you think bartenders and servers out of work right now are right wing? The 1,100 people laid off last week from Winking Lizard are a right wing political bunch? Try as you might, there's no fitting this in to a box. People across all political & economic spectrums will be hurt & frustrated here.
