Coronavirus: Coming to a Neighborhood Near You?

I understand that, but does really warrant having his full press conference on every national news network every day? His actions affect New York state, not Michigan or Illinois or wherever else people here live.

I grant that it's a pointless rant and it's going to happen anyway because the media are New Yorkers and they have an overinflated sense of the rest of the country's concern for their state, but the provincialism is really obvious and annoying to many of us out here in Not New York.

East coast bias.

I just assume what he says probably currently, or will soon, apply elsewhere.  He's having a press conference and it's easy for the networks to cover because they are there.  Is the governor of WA having them?

I like it because he's reassuring.  He's not sugar coating anything but I don't freak out either.

If this happened in 2019 he'd have been the immediate front runner for POTUS.

Heck, Joe may step aside and hand it over.

 

The Dem VP hasn't been chosen yet...

Oh, you're right, he's good. I'm just New York playa hating. :grin:

I’m 26. I don’t have any prior autoimmune or respiratory conditions. I work out six times a week, and abstain from cigarettes. I thought my role in the current health crisis would be as an ally to the elderly and compromised. Then, I was hospitalized for Covid-19.

On Friday, March 13, only a few hours after deciding I would begin to socially distance for the well-being of others, I developed a fever and headache. I tried not to assume the worst, but just in case, my partner and I decided to sleep in separate bedrooms. By the next morning, I had a cough. On Sunday, I started to feel better and my fever was gone. I felt thankful that even if this was coronavirus, I’d most likely be able to ride it out at home, as I’d heard people like myself had little to worry about. I began planning the work I’d catch up on the next day, and the much-needed shower I’d take.

That night I woke up in the middle of the night with chills, vomiting, and shortness of breath. By Monday, I could barely speak more than a few words without feeling like I was gasping for air. I couldn’t walk to the bathroom without panting as if I’d run a mile. On Monday evening, I tried to eat, but found I couldn’t get enough oxygen while doing so. Any task that was at all anxiety-producing — even resetting my MyChart password to communicate with my doctor — left me desperate for oxygen

This is hilarious.  Possibly NSFW but not offensive.

A good comment from a young person noting that the least the old will owe back to the young that are cooperating with helping to save the olds' lives would be for the old to stop block things needed for their future, like action on climate change.

That’s a pretty jerky thing to respond. 

But I think you know that.

The fact that COVID-19 people are dying alone is what gets to me the most.

In Idaho where I live the county where the Sun Valley ski resort is located, Blaine County, has seen a tremendous irruption of positive tests, with 14 new positive tests recorded overnight, and 35 within the last week. Initially it was all within the ultra rich jetsetter crowd who have their 5th or 6th homes in Sun Valley and who came into contact with the disease because they are world travelers. All the new cases are local people with no record of recent travel who got it locally. 

Finally, something from the elites has trickled down to the rest of us.

My daughter is texting me from her car parked outside a restaurant near her home where she is waiting for a to-go order.  I'm getting a play by play on a drama unfolding at the next door Running store.    Store is closed (required to be) but there was a manager  (owner?  small business) inside the store that this woman could see.  She's pounding on the door and yelling, evidently NEEDS to come in to return a pair of shoes.  Manager isn't having it, told the woman first nicely then firmly to go home; he couldn't let her in.  Major tantrum is ensuing.    What is wrong with people?  SMH. And honestly, those Southlake SAHMs are some of the worst, most entitled.

New meaning to the trickle down effect. You stay safe, keep those elites away.

So what happens when Trump tells his base that certain poisons cure this virus? Will his blind leader cause mass suicides? Does he even care? My answers would be yes to the former and no to the later.

edit; I won't even say the names of the poisons. I wouldn't want the human pumpkin to get any ideas.
