Mr. approval numbers is such a stupid ass. His IQ has to be under 20. A greater narcissist was never born. If any of you are still in this stock market, you have one day to exit.

It's a nightmare.
And what will happen when the contagion starts in poorer countries, how will they stop it from spreading again to the rest of the world?
There is two mutations as of right now. Americans have only been confirmed to have the one that came from China. I’m sure the Europe strain will get here too, if it’s not here yet. Nobody knows if this will be a one and done or If it’ll mutate like influenza.

My fiancée does rotations at one of our large hospitals and the biggest issues are the masks and other ppe. It’s pretty well accepted that almost everyone is going to get the virus. The goal is to draw the spread out over time. Give production of Ppe/ tests/ vents a chance to catch up with demand. It’ll open up more beds for moderate/ serious illness as well.

people need to remember that we are all in this together. Don’t be a dickhead. Nothing spreads like fear. Most people will get the virus. Most people will recover.

My family and I are fine, although my parents a
Despite warnings from the authorities, there are still people who go out cycling or running, it is very important to stay at home to try and break the chain of contagion, the fines here for skipping the confinement order are up to 300,000 euros and a prison sentence.

If there's anything specific you want to know, I'll try to answer
What's the risk of going jogging or walking your dog alone in a low population density area?

The closing of the gyms is about the only thing that has got me down. Its my only real hobby besides cars as I live alone. I wonder how long they will be closed as anything over 2-3 weeks and I might as well start my routine over? This was the first workout cycle (12-16 weeks of increasing weight) that I was on track of not going too long between workouts or quitting it early due to getting new medical issues or small sprains or strains in the past year and a half or so. Maybe its just age catching up to me as I'll hit the big 5 0 next month. I don't feel that old and don't really even want to celebrate birthdays anymore. I was going to continue to drive to the next state over to work out as they were still open the end of last week there, but its most likely only a matter of time and I don't really want to take the chance and get pulled over and get a fine or worse. Of course I could say I'm heading to the woods to go hiking or something.

Not sure what your state orders are. But if it is like ours you’ll be ok.

There's a half sarcastic viral clip going around the internet where one can make a homemade treadmill by putting soap and water on a slick floor, hanging on to something and sliding your feet through the puddle for exercise.

7.8 Billion people on earth. So far 3+ months in we are at 13,500 deaths worldwide. Still waiting for valid math.
worth noting that those figures are WITH each and every county affected having wrecked their economy to try and contain it. They are also still growing rapidly out of control every day despite the measures having been put in place. Now you want to use those figures to justify not wrecking your economy just underlines how worthless your opinion is.

with respect, (and normally i am of the same opinion about arguing online), it's because the longer it takes for the deniers to understand, the worse it's going to be for everyone. :like:

No problem in my area, but in big cities, where some people use the dog as an excuse to go for a walk and in some cases all the members of a family take turns walking the dog.
Our pets have never been out on the street so much.

New York is getting hammered

Michigan just crested 1,000 cases (up from 554 on the chart above). Nine fatalities with many more expected. Keep in mind most of these cases presented symptoms BEFORE being tested. As more people get tested proactively, more cases are bound to pop up. The reason for social distancing is so that these untested infected potential carriers do not interact with otherwise healthy people and thereby spread COVID-19. I personally only refer to this as COVID-19 because there are so many strains called Coronavirus that it is too easy to minimize the impact of this particular strain.

Example...which would you rather have...Herpes Simplex 1 or Herpes Simplex 2? One of those is a cold sore, the other? All Herpes are not created the same. Same with Coronavirus. The one we're currently talking about, COVID-19 is particularly nasty.

Another interesting piece of information. In the City of Detroit, 233 police officers are now under self quarantine. Why? Because 6 officers have had direct contact with a person who has tested positive. The other 227 are officers who have had direct contact with those 6 officers since the contact with the infected person. So all are under quarantine until the test results of the original 6 come back. This is the nature of a pandemic.

Unchecked, 1 infects 6 (plus probably a lot more non-police that we don't know about). The 6 could have infected another 227. Without quarantines, the 227 could go on to potentially infect how many? And so on and so on.

This is a boat a lot of people are finding themselves in right now. I just ordered a rowing machine as this is my wife’s favorite piece of workout equipment.

Please, if you want to make it to 51 stay home. Do not go looking for an open gym.

It would be great if OP did himself, his community, and the country a favor and post back admitting that he was incorrect about his original assumption. The last thing this country needs right now is people crying fake news. Once people who have done that start admitting that they were wrong perhaps we can make more progress.
