    If Costco sold these the panic for toilet paper would be much more understandable.

    This is a video of a man who actually has the virus. I don't want to sound heartless here and hurt any feelings but this to me is proof this is no big deal and the media is just driving the mass hysteria
    I'll watch the video later.

    No big deal? Perhaps someone should interview those that have died from the virus. Most people will be fine with the virus. Again, I appreciate those that are considerate of us that would have a problem.

    But Jv…..it's the mortality rate that is the scary part. If it's 10 times (or more likely, higher) than the flu, which apparently killed 60,000 Americans two years ago (I think I got the year right), the numbers are a huge concern. That's a lot of life.

    I understand, the man in the video appears to be mid to late 50's?? Possibly early 60's? I'm sure it can attack other people harder than others and I don't have all the information on who has already died and their ages. I'm going off what I hear from a man who has it and is later in years. Just going off his judgement.

    On Rogan, Michael Osterholm who is a professional disease investigator 'conservatively estimated' ......almost 50 million hospitalizations, almost 100 million cases occurring, and almost 500,000 deaths over the next 3-7 months. These stats are cited in the first few minutes of the podcast

    This thing spreads like wildfire. Simple breathing is all it takes.

    Yes, the majority of people recover. But what about your child or grandparents? And what if this thing mutates into something even worse before it's over? It's already changed from it's original form

    It isn’t airborne. It’s in fluids. Like saliva.

    Basic hygiene by everyone can basically defeat it.

    Don’t shake hands

    Cough into something

    Stay home if sick.

    Wipe keyboards, phones etc that other people have access to.

    And go buy lots of toilet paper because that’s the most important thing. Toilet paper.

    Kind of depends. Age is a factor, but that 50-60 year old man could have ZERO co-morbidities.

    But then you take a 50-60 year old, with coronary artery disease s/p CABG x3, COPD from a 20 pack year smoking history, and type 1 diabetes and it could spell doom.

    Does he have a compromised immune system? In case you didn't read through this thread, I do. It's not a big deal for normal people. Some of us are not normal. (yes, I said that. )

    I'm not going by what the media is saying. I'm listening to the CDC and WHO.

    A video of a British teacher in Wuhan, describing his Coronavirus symptoms and recovery, and life in Wuhan at the present time.

    Not all people will experience these same symptoms. For most, the symptoms appear to be mild, but for others, they can be life threatening. Please be safe out there.

    To infinity...and beyond.

    I can foresee things to get very challenging over the next months. I can describe what that may be, but I think all of us can imagine. On the other hand, if we take it in stride, one day at a time, I think we will do better if we look for positives. Use humour as a crutch. Bring some light into the room. Come up with stories or information that keep us focused on constructively good things.

    I know for me it will get a bit tedious without sports for a while. So I expect to be watching more of those Netflix shows I just kept passing by. Time for me to read some of those books sitting around the place. And as long as we are wise, with warmer temps coming, it will be wonderful to take some walks and see winter turn to spring turn to summer.

    And I suggest we keep each other tight, because though we may not all be friends, we have this place to share our words and ideas with. That's a good thing!

    Stay positive!

    Those in states who haven't voted in their primaries yet should consider absentee voting if possible. Tell your older kin

    I just read that the WHO had this good test that they sent all over the world .............worked fine.. And our CDC here in the states decided - 'we're going to make our own test thank you' ............but


    ...........the CDC test FAILS. It doesn't work. How do you like that? This shortage of tests is going to be a big deal. Nice roll of the dice

    Unfortunately all these tests and drugs are made overseas now. It's not like the glory days of the USA when all the cutting edge tech was here at home. Now we have to rely on China and other countries for these tests and drugs while at the same time US brass is slighting those countries.
