COVID-19 Outbreak


Recommended Posts

Italy likely to be over 2000 deaths by the end of the day. 3500 new confirmed cases in the last 24 hours. I wouldn’t be surprised if more people die of COVID-19 by Friday than the total number of deaths in China.

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.

If you disagreed with it you probably wouldn't be alone, there would be protests, riots and stuff. That wouldn't go smoothly as this 

No one that isn’t a child, either mentally or literally, ever believed that freedom shit.

Seeing as Italy has been struggling with an ageing population for years, I'm affraid you're right.

in germany, there's a new season of "big brother" going on, and the participants are oblivious of the corona epidemy going on in ths rest of the world

you can not make this up.

if this was a book, it would be a brilliant post war, desillusionist, fatalist, distopian novel that gives camus' "la peste" a run for its money

That was the plot of a zombie apocalypse series written by Charlie Brooker. It was quite good.

Mike Pence was just asked about the House bill excluding paid sick leave for employees of large corporations. His response was that no American should worry about missing a paycheck if they are sick. He then left the stage and didn't elaborate one iota.

I don't think a lockdown would happen in the US on the national scale unless we have a huge spike in cases.

I don't think Americans are conditioned for something like that and when you add in factors like will people get paid leave? all hell could break loose.

Furthermore i don't want Donald Trump of all fucking people to have such power :lol:

So i just saw the other thread got closed with the post "I'm going to close this for the time being seeing as the GN'R dates are all canceled or postponed for now." 

 

All dates either cancelled or postponed?? When did this happen??

Just Latin America

Seeing as the nearly the entire world is on lock down currently with no cure or end in site, it seems theirs really nothing to discuss regarding GNR tour dates until one of those two things changes.

Agreed. But for now they are still trying to get Europe and NA going forward. Who knows what will happen in 2 months

My fucking trip to Vegas just got shut down the day we got here. Now I am going to have to go home and quarantine for 2 weeks. I honestly hate my life

I wonder about those quarantines...I understand the reason for it, to slow down the spread and all, but if I go quarantine today then after two weeks I'll be allowed to go out again but then the virus won't have magically dissapeared all of a sudden. So it's gonna be quarantine after quarantine or what? And for how long? I don't really want to think about it. :(

 

Yeah. Now they go into overdrive. Lock everything up. Shut everything down. Tell people to isolate themselves. But what happens in 2 weeks? 1 month? They realize they can't keep this up forever. People won't want to keep this up forever. And then what? They tell people to go back to their normal lives, even though nothing really has changed?

Judging on what China has been able to accomplish, such efforts would do a lot.  They expect to see the lockdown implemented in Italy to start showing results in the next week or two.

maybe everyone wearing mouth masks in those regions could be a contributing factor?

Impossible to say of course. There is very little evidence suggesting face masks avoid protection for most people (who don't get up in the faces of infected people, like health care personell do). And then there's evidence that wearing face masks, especially for people not trained and conscious about it, leads to a higher infection risk.

Btw, South Korea have been handing out two face masks to each citizen every week for a while now.

in the netherlands and france, more than half of the people in intensive care is younger than 50

I tought only elder and weak people?

There is an increasing risk of the disease being serious the older you are and the "more" other illnesses you have. So nothing there that contradicts with what you are saying.

nah, correction: that's what we were "told", not what I believed. I hope not too many people listened to "the experts", partying and thinking "well I'm not old or weak, I should be fine".

How many people heard those statements and thought they'd be fine?

Now you are going all bonkers again. If you are young and healthy than the risk of you getting seriously ill is very, very small. That's a fact and not really open to interpretation ;) You are entirely in your right to "think you will be fine" if you are not in any risk groups, because you aren't likely to not be fine. 

But of course that doesn't condone exposing yourself to the disease which could result in you infecting others who might not be as young and healthy as yourself.

Dead Corona people in total

6000

China: 3200

Italy: 1500

So. Is it SARS? Did it mutate in italy? Is China lying in their statistics?

 

Huh? 

No, it isn't the same virus as SARS.

No, it hasn't mutated in Italy (as far as I am aware).

No, it doesn't seem like China is lying.

What's the confusion here?
