Coronavirus: Coming to a Neighborhood Near You?

Ron Johnson does realize that 3.4% of 320,000,000 is 11,000,000? It's not tens of thousands, it's millions. If the US doesn't take measures, it would be higher than 3.4%.

By the way, is this assigning blame to Johnson? Don't want to be mean and point out he is part of the problem. 

Math hard.

The party of dunces

President Trump has exacerbated the problem, but he didn’t start it. He is himself the product of decades of right-wing revolt against government and increasingly against reason itself. America is unusual in having a major party — and a major television network — devoted to climate denialism and protecting the “right” of everyone to own an assault rifle. The GOP and the right-wing media have long been a hotbed of nutty conspiracy theories, and their reluctance to face the reality of the new coronavirus set back efforts to save lives

This morning, around 11am, I went to the grocery store for the first time since Saturday. What a depressing experience.

I knew they would have to close down the soup bar, salad bar and hot bar, but to see them actually shut down is eerie. Also, no more bagel, muffin or doughnut bins from which you can pick out one at a time. They stopped putting out the prepackaged Atlantic salmon center cuts, my personal favorite. Most of the produce is still available, although certain things I like such as non-organic red peppers weren't available. Of course all paper products were gone, but every aisle had patches that have been picked over. Delicious shelf stable foods were hit and miss. No olive oil left except the $30+ brands. I cleaned them out of their Kodiak Brown Sugar Oatmeal and Tasty Bites Kashmir Spinach, each of which they had only a few anyway. Larger containers of black pepper were gone and they had maybe 20% of the salt they normally have. And this despite one of the workers I spoke to saying that full trucks have been coming every day, including today. Wow.

But the worst part to me must be that the few people there were walking around like zombies. Everybody had blanks faces at best and were scowling at worst, and everyone was avoiding eye contact. Not that people gaze into each other' eyes normally, but heads were averted, not just eyes. Everyone looks depressed and beaten. There was a negative energy in the place. Not a perfect analog of course, but this must be what it felt like to grocery shop in a Soviet bloc country. I almost teared up as I left with my haul.

And this is just the beginning.

Michigan cases up to 114. They over doubled in the 24 hours since hopper said there were only 54. More still to come.

Please don’t do that.  

No need to bring up, and taunt, another member who isn’t currently posting.

It just causes problems.

Well, just got notified that my small NJ town (population around 10,000) has its first case of COVID19.

And so it begins.?

Woman died in Freehold, age 55. 6 siblings also infected, 5 now are in critical condition.

Threat tile is true. One of BC's 43 new cases today is at a seniors' centre a block from my home.

My trip to Costco this morning wasn't that bad, tbh. But it was a lot busier than normal

Not a even close to being a survivalist.  But I do have enough guns to take all of your toilet paper if I need to.

Good thing I started social security in January. I was filling in with my old Irish band at NYNY over St. Pat's weekend. We made it through Sunday then it was shut down. Everything on my calendar after that is gone. We'll see what they do with the "gig" economy.
