    It’s pretty scary if you think about it? Really? I think you give governments more credit than they deserve. They can’t even balance a budget,how are they going to orchestrate a world wide test?
    If nothing else this will be a constructive wake up call for the cognitive dissonance that has gripped the U S population since 9/11.
    For the record, I still can’t offer an intelligent opinion on the Covid Virus.
    I have given plenty thought about this as staying home isn’t an option. I have reduced it down to if I am infected early,I will be the ones to get the bed in the ICU if I need it.
    Permanent lung damage and nothing yet as to secondary effects will keep your attention.At least it does for me.

    Knowledge is the key.

    YOU SHOULD BE SCARED.

    Humans extrapolate on a linear scale.
    The problem is disease spreads on a exponential scale. I have not criticized you before, Big Al, but UNLESS we find a cure, the number of cases and the NUMBER OF DEATHS will peak in about 2 months AT TWO ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE WORSE. Are you mentally ready to see those numbers? Please do the math.
    Wearing of masks should be compulsory when out of the home.
    Dr. Huber ought to understand Rzero is much higher than for other similar diseases.
    Large doses of Vitamin C recommended.

      Out of curiousity cfs, how many deaths do you envisage occurring when we hit peak infection on a global number?

    Current Death Statistics:
    Italy: 9,134
    Spain: 5,138
    China: 3,295
    Iran: 2,378
    France: 1,995
    USA: 1,723
    U.K.: 761
    (It should not be assumed that the same strain dominates in every country, because the Rates of spreading and death vary abnormally. This also could arise from incomplete reporting.)

      CFS, we are now 2 months into this event in the US, since the first known case in Everett WA.

      There have been 1800 deaths attributed to Covid 19 related pneumonia – with no idea what the ratio to population that has been infected.

      In the same period, there have been approx. 7,000 deaths attributed to flu related pneumonia, affecting similar demographics, averaging out to 25,000 to 55,000 this season alone.

      There have been at least on average 5,000 opioid related deaths, over 60K last year.

      There have been on average over 4,000 suicides per month, nearly 50K annually and rising.

      But you don’t see these charts on every cable news , just COVID. People are infected with fear, much more than the disease. Media and politics are driving panic.

      There is no data to prove or disprove theories on impact to populations – no one can claim otherwise.

      What we do know is we have to keep on living, working, enjoying life, and protecting our selves and what little freedoms that remain.

      So what is fear doing for us? It’s giving us authoritarianism, and debt.
