What the fuck do they know? If I'm looking for advice from a rock band on how viruses are transmitted I will ask Queen thank you very much.

Again, back then they had no knowledge and would often refer to various pandemics as simply the plague. Only in modern times have we been able to associate specific pathogens with some of them, with differing levels of confidence.

What's wrong in the post above?

Corona has reared it's ugly head in my family as well, as of yesterday my 15 year old nephew has been taken to hospital. This is a kid with no underlying health conditions, at the moment he is not in an icu and they expect him to recover but still...all the more reason to stay at home if possible

Sad to hear. And he has been tested and it is confirmed to be corona?

Yes he has been tested and it is confirmed to be corona, his family is now in quarantine. Ambulance workers came and picked him up and transported him to the hospital yesterday.

Okay. Chances are he will recover soon. Wish you the best.

Awful. I hope he'll recover soon and his family are okay!

Thanks, i suspect he'll recover pretty soon due to his age but you just never know for sure with this virus.

Today's Sun is a good one, albeit they have used the ''wurst'' pun before I believe,

Further,

 

Bad to Wurst?? Bad to sausage?? If that is funy then the british humour is not what it once was.

This is an interesting one, I thought:

https://ourworldindata.org/coronavirus#the-growth-rate-of-covid-19-deaths

It's hard to compare how well or badly countries are doing, and because the way of counting deaths still varies (some only count deaths in hospital, some count also suspected covid-19, without official confirmation etc.), we will only grasp the severity of the pandemic after it's all done and we can actually compare number of deaths with other years.

But this table shows the growth in covid-deaths, so it should give us an accurate (or more accurate) view of how we're all doing at the moment. So for Italy the number doubles every nine days now, in Spain it's 6 and in the US it's every 3 days.

I have eaten remarkably well apart from a brief indulgence of (takeaway) fish and chips last night. I am frying-up some halloumi and serving it with salad or something or other later.

I think there's something wrong with me. I've just been watching a senior nurse on the Downing Street press conference talking about her colleagues dying and all I can focus on is her slight lisp. I've literally been sitting there watching for the last couple of minutes thinking about that episode of Only Fools and Horses with the club singer who can't pronounce his 'r's :lol:

Apparently a loss of taste is a symptom of Covid 19. I think Trump's had it for the last 30 years. :lol:

I am fed up with all of these horrible ''celebrities'' with their webcams, demonstrating tips on ''coping with'' isolation with little exercise videos and so forth. Why don't they all just fuck off.

They are doing what they've always done...to entertain and to draw attention to themselves. You can choose not to watch them. My friends and I are doing similar things—the only difference being, we're not public figures. I suppose we're held to different standards.

Having said that...I refuse to watch Gal Gadot's Imagine video.:lol:

Dallas extended it's shelter inside until May 24.

I'm sure they will announce schools are now closed until the end of this school year.  I feel so bad for the seniors who need to graduate and don't get a prom either. I don't know what the school members will decide?

I went to Walmart today. They had one entrance to go into the store. Carts were upside down telling you how to enter and stay 6 feet away from each other. Inside the store they had "stay 6 feet away" signs as you walked through the store. I have to say most of the people were doing that. There were a few people crowding around some items. I stayed away from them. Got paper towels, but no toilet paper, but I'm good. Plenty of water and other products. Alot of the ice cream was gone. It was stocked up last week. People need sugar to get through the day! lol I know I do

Some people had masks which annoyed me because so many medical doctor and nurses and EMT workers don't have any? WTF? I just kept putting hand santizer on my hands as I walked around the store.

Anyway, I know we all feel the same way and in a way it helps me cope. Take care and be safe and stay inside!

Enjoy a safe weekend.

Christopher Cross is diagnosed with COVID.

Wow! That sucks. What scares me is where were they when they got infected? I swear I think if someone is infected and coughs or sneezes it stays in the air for a while. No one has said this but I think it could be true.

So sad to see all those trucks waiting for the dead patients to store. It sucks to get this virus and then to die and have to be contained in a truck until the morgues and funeral homes can get to you. I think that's the worse of all.

Stay safe and well.

I can't stand the car commercials talking about hard times and we are here to help. WTF? Who the hell wants to buy a car right now? I mean come on!

The only commercials I totally love are Limu Emu and Doug. No matter how down I feel they make me smile.

I agree about the celebrities. Who cares what the hell you do? You are not losing your jobs or your money like many regular people are right now. 

Also my brother is a yoga instructor and he's streaming his classes for his students because he gets paid for that. And he needs the money.

I find it annoying when all of a sudden they are showing you their work out routines from home. Where the hell are you kids? Like Brook Burke. How many kids does she have that she can do yoga for an hour? lol Come on.

My bread making game is through the roof now! Baked the best bread of my life yesterday, and that was without a baking stone even :headbang:

 

I admire anyone who can bake!  I don't have that gene at all.
