  1. COVID-19 Outbreak

    Not to mention, in terms of social distancing, that only a certain part of the population can follow this. Yes, you can stay away from restaurants and malls and such, but not everyone is able to work from home. People are overloading the system looking for unemployment benefits -- someone's got to be in the office to process those claims. Someone has to be in the office to process payroll. Dillon's grocery stores is hiring 10,000 people to work stocking stores and manning the till - let alone there has to be people at work hiring those people and setting them up as employees. Walmart is hiring 100,000 new people The trucks that are carrying all these supplies need to get gas so someone has to work at the gas stations. These trucks break down and need parts so someone needs to work at the parts stores and repair shops. All healthcare workers including retirement home employees and personal support workers, vets, etc. And the list goes on and on. So hopefully the measures taken will flatten the curve a bit but there are many others who still need to be out and about.

    Yes, you may be more likely to "die" if you are over 60, and you may "recover" from the virus if you are below 50, but it is simply not normal to be in your 30's or 40's and be in the ICU from the flu. So to take a blasé attitude that people in their 40's will recover while they are in the ICU with this virus is a little crazy to me. My husband and I are in our 40's, we've had the flu multiple times over our life, it has never even crossed my mind to be worried about catching it and having to be hospitalized on a ventilator! so yes, with this virus I'm a little worried! And I think so should everyone be. But don't take all the toilet paper.
  3. COVID-19 Outbreak

    I noticed you laughed at my comment the other week when I said it would be prudent to do what one thinks they should do to keep their family safe, and people shouldn't be mocked for taking extra precautions until we know more. Still think it's a joke then?
  4. COVID-19 Outbreak

    Well who cares really, I think it was the message that was important here. And that message being, 'this is pretty damn serious.' (and now I'm gonna head out to buy toilet paper tomorrow, if you can't beat 'em join 'em )
  5. COVID-19 Outbreak

    Well this is considered one type of airborne transmission is it not?
  6. COVID-19 Outbreak

    Exactly. And that is the cause for concern.
  7. COVID-19 Outbreak

    Would the whole of Italy go on lockdown if it was just 'media hype'? Come on. I mean think about the logistics and ramifications of that for a second. Would they do that if some reputable scientists and researchers didn't suspect it was airborne? Again, they just don't know enough, certainly not enough to say "hey everybody we have some definitive answers here!" I'm still with @action on this. ps. months and months ago, I was reading about flu deaths, and thinking, what the heck, how is this possible in this day and age. And then reading about some of the young people who died from it, the ultimate cause was double pneumonia. And that is what is ultimately happening with corona right? Is it possible some of these earlier deaths from a year or so ago that was attributed to the flu was possibly corona virus and we just didn't know it at the time? Just thinking out loud here.
  8. COVID-19 Outbreak

    I have a "natural" remedy for that too!
  9. COVID-19 Outbreak

    For you, sure, give it a go.

    The Oil of Oregano? I'm a staunch supporter, and that's ok if not everyone is. But it just might be helpful to some.
  11. COVID-19 Outbreak

    The thing is, there will always be another new virus, another new pandemic. Whether its because of a mistake in a research laboratory, a virus mutating to survive, the easy travel accessibility between countries, or any number of other reasons. It's good to take precautions during the outbreak times, which is what we are in now. But we also can't live our lives forever in a bubble either. I suggest keeping a bottle of wildcrafted Oil of Oregano on hand. Not sure if the scientific journals or the fda advocate for it, but do your own research, use it for yourself, and draw your own conclusions.
  12. COVID-19 Outbreak

    @action I don't think you are over reacting at all. There's still too much they don't know about this virus, and that is the bottom line. Even now The Who is saying the death rate is higher than previously thought and reported. So at this point in time I wouldn't put my safety in the reliability of those charts. And there is conflicting information in the media, not only from different sources, but even in the same articles...I just read in Seattle that a whole family is in the hospital with it but there is no one in "serious" condition.. next line they say the father is in the ICU with severe respiratory complications, so that seems pretty 'serious' to me! Until they know more, or the spread of it stops, (which it seems to be doing the opposite of right now), you are in the right to do whatever you think you need to do to keep your family safe. No matter how much mocking you may receive.
  13. US Politics/Elections Thread

    As a new "Kansan" I feel the need to interject here There is also a Kansas City, Kansas. The two are separately incorporated cities, but share one big sprawling area that crosses the state divide. It's very confusing. The Missouri side is home of the Chiefs, but the Kansas side claims them as their own as well. Maybe the President of the United States should be aware of this, or double check, but again, if not from the midwest, it's very confusing.

    I don't know what Project Veritas is, but if this guy does indeed somehow work for Bernie, Bernie needs to de-associate with him. This guy is clearly insane, possibly dangerous.
