The Wuhan soccer team quit their pre-season training camp in Spain over coronavirus concerns to return to China.

Wow, more stupid people licking toilet seats and door knobs :thumbup:

The hand sanitiser is in short supply here after the toilet paper hoarders gobbled them up.
I have a bottle from my mushroom supplies cupboard and am using it, as well as a bottle of mouth wash.

We have a few cases in my town now.

Though most of you don't live in the SF Bay area as I do, this chart may show the effect of 'shelter in place' that the Bay Area implemented on 16 March, vs New York who waited until the evening of 20 March:

Can someone explain how this could be possible?  Even if we slow down the virus, isn't it just going to start spreading again if we return back to normal?

NYC is a distaster right now.

Three weeks would be possible if we enforced strict shelter in place rules

Did a risk assessment on our work.

* We have almost zero interaction with the public. We turn up, say hello, then get on the roof.
* Put a halt on any out of town work, only local jobs now.
* Hands to be washed after fueling the truck, the hand sanitiser bottle fits in the holder.
* Hands to be washed before going home.
* No using the customers toilet, this morning I drove home instead.

The government has no right to make people stay home and destroy the economy.
I agree with trump, that thinking a nation that should be stopped.

People that are mandating stops with government enforcement don't deserve authority.

Government shouldn't be able to make you work, nor should it be able to stop you from working because of the pandemic.

While I would agree with you under most circumstances, I know a lot of people who are in a high risk group based on age and health who would have a very high chance of dying if they caught this virus, especially if hospitals are over capacity, which is almost certain to happen if we don't shelter in place, as we've seen happen in places that were too slow to react.

I think Trump is banking on spring weather knocking out the virus, but nobody really knows. Social distancing is all we have that works right now, and if we abandon that for economic reasons, and then the disease gets worse, Trump could go down as the worst President in 100 years.

I can see his point though. The economic effects will be devastating, and each week they keep people at home it will get exponentially worse as the consequences become more long term. In weeks many small businesses will be done. The interconnectedness of the economy means this hits Main Street and Wall Street.

So it's pick your poison. Dead people or economically miserable people, and quite possibly both. I hate his guts but I don't envy Trump right now.

The Amazon I work at announced their first confirmed case today. They have been given official status as an essential industry. We all got a $2 raise and double time for OT. Anyone who wants to stay home can. They have closed down every other work station, staggered starting times and break times, and extended breaks all to keep people from ever being near each other. My best friend works for a successful company that makes vehicle floormats, so it's nonessential. He got sent home three weeks with pay.

I'm not a biologist, but that doesn't make sense to me given the virus seem to do fine in 98 degree humans.

The government has vast powers to that and mandatory quarantines and vaccines have been approved by the courts many times

There's a recent study from Oxford U that claims the virus has been in the UK since January and half the population already had it.

I live in California and had all the symptoms back in early February, before I knew anything about it. Got over it in a few days, nobody else in my home got sick.

I'm assuming I had a normal flu and am still being cautious.

Here's how a real leader handles the crisis:

Quote:

...a week of paid leave, with a boost to benefits for those most in need, while the wealthiest will have to pay more taxes.

One of the immediate decisions taken by the government was to declare next week a long national holiday.... Salaries for the days off will still be paid.

Constitution vote postponed

The usual means tests for eligibility will be suspended for six months, while some of the payments – like paid sick leave and unemployment payments – will be given a boost.

(Citizens) who suffer a sharp drop income for whatever reason will be able to ask for a suspension of payments on any credits they owe. Similar support will be given to small businesses, which will also get tax breaks and protection from bankruptcy to help keep them afloat during the economic slowdown.

Wealthier individuals and big companies are expected to cover some of the cost of the emergency measures...
