    Guess we'll know soon, as there are infections in equatorial areas where its always warm.

    If it spreads there, then warmth isn't going to help.

    Maybe trump can ship some of his personality to those places, seein's how that is all that is necessary.

    An Australian tried to resell toilet paper for $100 per roll. For some reason, the hypocrites of the free market began to shame him.
    Toilet paper at such prices, and even more expensive, in capitalism system is allowed to sell only in one place - on the stock markets. But this is only for chosen thieves. And they also praised for it as "captains of business".
    And what is the stock market?
    This is when two money changers in a restaurant sell each other a greasy napkin for a million $ each.

    There is a virus out there that causes a flu. Its a new strain of an old virus. Since it was probably going around for at least a good solid month before the cat got out of the bag, the reality is that it is a pandemic...its everywhere. So...live your life and take all the normal precautions you would take for day to day living during the flu season...or...shelter in place for the duration.
    A mere nine days later, it's now clear that this was horrible advice.

    My son lives in South America where it's warm year-round. There's coronavirus there. Each one of our warmer states, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, California, Texas, all have coronavirus. Are Trump lovers simply fooling themselves that we're making too much of a pandemic?

    I always worked from home.

    Wife teleworked most of the time; now, all the time, per govt. orders.

    Kids out of school for 3-4 weeks.

    Concerts cancelled (affects my kids).

    Not going out to eat much. Not shopping as much. No movies. Sensible stuff, really.

    *****************

    Point is, this isn't the flu. We don't have a vaccine, fatality rate is about 35x higher, and it seems to be just as transmissible. If you don't get on top of these things early and take steps to mitigate transmission, the number of infections goes much higher much earlier, putting greater strain on our healthcare system that is already looking to be short of beds for this.

    The worst thing that a country can do is to dismantle its emergency healthcare infrastructure, and that's exactly what trump did - though he won't admit to it, and claims he doesn't remember doing so.

    The next worse thing you can do is delay action by denying the problem, calling it a hoax, etc. trump did that, too. His many minions aren't helping, either, because they believe anything he says and pass it on themselves. Just look at the early responses in this thread for proof.

    This is already having a negative effect on the economy. Imagine how bad it could be if infection was widespread. And still, Moscow Mitch is dragging his feet on govt. relief. Tons of people can't afford to take time off, even if they are sick; we need to give these people assistance. We need to pay people to stay home for a while.

    Nah...there are two far worse things you can do. The 2nd worst thing you can do is panic...we've seen a lot of that. The absolute worst you can do is attempt to turn what is a global pandemic into a political campaign. Tragically...there are a crap-ton of douchebags attempting to do that very thing.

    Parroting the incorrect messages of our president is politicizing the pandemic as well. But because it's also the wrong message, it is far more damaging.

    No one is parroting anything. Its a tragedy that to complicate an already risky situation AND the completely transparent efforts of douchebag leftists using this as yet another means to try to attack the president, we have idiots promoting the gloom and doom scenarios which have caused panic buying at stores and selloffs in the marketplace.
