    I don't know if it has to do with numbers being off bc it was Sunday or something but yesterday's numbers in NJ didn't go up as much as Saturday's. That's good?

    Yes. The fact the number hasn't grown much is good.

    Everyone is shitty.

    Governments are shitty by nature so that's no surprise.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    I went to the supermarket and was hyper aware of distancing.

    On the drive home, I found myself keeping excessive distances from all the cars around me :dunce:

    The Wisconsin primary is being held for entirely political reasons unfortunately (and is in itself political talk), thus we're not discussing it here. Even if most of us are in agreement it's craven.

    You're right. Regardless of whether you like or dislike the NYT or Bloomberg or whatever, there's a reason that little "EDITORIAL" box has gotten bigger and bigger. People with opinions on information cause more controversy and thus generate more clicks than the information itself, which everyone has access to. It is asking way too much of the average person to think in terms of nuances and shades of gray. People pick their teams and arrive at the facts that support the team. These outlets are selling candy in the middle of the playground.

    There's a big drawback to not paying for your content or paying bare minimum (Netflix, Spotify) - it's great in aggregate but specifically amazing things, a movie like The Godfather or the kind of reporting you only see in The Athletic, generally won't get pursued at that level of return on investment. And, content-wise, I think the whole world is suffering in a sense but doesn't realize it because the quantity > quality is a pretty innate reflex for most.

    I'm no fan of Boris, I hate his politics and views.

    But this is kind of insensitive. The man reassuring sick people and frontline NHS staff, while a pretty boneheaded move, is a good gesture and actually expected from a British PM.

    I mean, he's in intensive care right now after putting everything he has into this fight. BoJo has been one of the better world leaders since this started.

    So instead of “mansplaining” is that an example of “Britsplaining”?

    Death numbers are a mirror on infections one to two weeks ago or even more. So, death rates can ironically go up even if all other numbers go down.

    Everyone understands infection rates are leading indicators, right?

    Everyone, including the president, has said this week and next week will be brutal in terms of deaths. Terrible obviously, but hoping for the best and a continued stagnation of infection #s (followed by a consistent drop).

    I believe 100% it was cycling the world late last year.

    Did I have it? I’m not sure but I did get sick with the symptoms of Covid19 and for the first time in 20 years told my boss that I wasn’t coming into work. I ended up working from home for 4 days and sleeping most of the time. Whatever it was kicked my butt and I actually went to the Dr twice in 2 weeks (which is not like me) and tested negative for the flu. My wife a few weeks later ended up missing almost 2 weeks of work with the worst cough I have ever heard. It kept her up in the middle of the night because of even then still coughing.

    To top it all off, the week before Christmas my mother goes into the hospital with shortness of breath, a fever and a bad cough. They ran the gambit of tests and they couldn’t figure out what she had. After 2 or 3 days she ended up being put on a respirator and couldn’t breath without it. Anyone in the room had to wear a mask and “not touch the patient”. We honestly thought we lost her but by some miracle she was able to come off the respirator after 5 or so days in the CCU. They never were able to diagnose what she had. I have no doubt now that she was an early case of this virus.

    Yeah, given how interconnected we all are, especially with China, it was definitely here before we knew.

    Ya, they know how many are right now in the sad process of dying in hospitals, and preparing the public for brutal numbers.

    Talked to a friend today whose cousin has it, it took 10 days to get the result after he tested. He lives with his grandmother. Enough said. Me personally think testing, testing, testing is the answer and develop quick results for as many people as ever possible.

    Thank god your mom is okay.

    My mom and both sisters also had a very bad fever with a severe cough. I had a severe fever and diarrhea.

    I brought my mom and sister to a clinic because they couldn't take it anymore. They both tested negative to the Flu

    Incredible. Is there a test yet that could tell you if you had it? Coupled with knowledge that your now are immune (which I understand is not 100% yet) you would be self-vaccined and could, say, go to work etc. or even volonteer at different things where you would know you cannot get infected. This is part of what I mean that testing is so crucial ( I think Cuomo talked about this in this morning's update)
