About half of the wholesalers of hydroxychlorochine  indicating shortages...in CA we have seen at least 4x more scripts for zpack plus malaria drugs than positive cases

Lets get back to daily updates about whether ONE person contracted it....or not.  

I wish the numbers could stay low, unfortunately it doesn't look like that's how this thing is going to play out.

I wish we could do that, I'm afraid we are going in the other direction based on the back log of tests in ND I've heard about. 

What's strange is why haven't malls and other non essential retailers where people are gathering been shut down? Why did the shutdown apply specifically to restaurants and bars? Not really fair to them to be singled out but allow the malls to stay open.

A lot of business have closed, reduced hours, or closed the lobby (banks).

It's a strange mix. No one really knows what's going on. Or if they can even be open.

But we need an end plan soon. This cant go on too much longer?

So we have heard - hopefully those cases start skyrocketing so people can be right about destroying our economy.

It is strange and it would be nice to get some clear direction from the government, either our governer or our president.

Since there are so many unknowns, at this point the only factual info we have to go off of is number of deaths that have happened in other countries. I'm afraid the only end plan ahead is to shut everything down before it's too late and this continues to spread further here. We know it's coming so why don't we pull the trigger now to get this over with sooner?

To think anyone wants the numbers to skyrocket and/or our economy destroyed is absurd.

16400 deaths worldwide due to coronavirus to date.....fact.

67000+ deaths in the country due to drug overdose last year.......fact.

88000+ deaths in the country due to alcohol related issues last year......fact.

Do you need the seasonal flu numbers again too?

I agree that a measure of success would be outstanding.  Everyone knows that, but they can’t give that because the situation is too fluid.  
 

It is also so varied in the different pockets within the US, and that symptom onset is delayed from exposure.  I’m thinking we are probably 7-10 days away from getting a handle on where we sit in CA.

You can spin the numbers any way you want to if it makes you feel better.

But you cannot compare a year of deaths on one subject to three months into a pandemic.

Remember the coronavirus numbers are in addition to the flu numbers. Have you ever seen NY hospitals as overwhelmed as they are now from the flu?

We need to pay attention to how this has played out in other countries ahead of us. This isn't just magically going to go away so we need to stop pretending it will.

 I wonder if after the first reported case in Grand Forks, the malls will close?

Those Corona death numbers are for the world.  The drug overdose and alcohol related deaths were just for the US.
I wonder if the hospitals would be as overwhelmed if the media hadn't blown this up?  We'll never know.

Dow will be below 18000 tomorrow if the Senate doesn't nut up.

A president from the Federal Reserve stated GDP could drop 50% and unemployment could go to 30%.

Did the media blow it up? Have you seen what is happening in Italy right now? New York?

Good to see the Senate is going to be part of this crisis solution.

Wind and solar energy tax credits, along with tougher airline emissions were attached to the stimulus bill, among other things.  Unbelievable.

Dont forget mandatory diversity percentages for coporate board of directors.

One of the top 3 to 4 issues that need to be addressed in an economic meltdown.

Dont get high and mighty though... 100% the other side would be sliding their own bull$%!# in if roles were reversed.

South Korea......how are they doing? Good.... right? They're the model we want to follow......right? Their death rate....1.2%.

Italy death rate.....just south of 10%.

 

 

Here in the US our death rate......1.3%. We aren't Italy. We are trying to follow South Korea.

You realize we've reacted to this much more similar to Italy than South Korea right?
