In Topic: Trump has made history! (now vs the world)

I haven't seen any abnormal panic buying in my area, thanks to the general distrust in major media outlets, thankfully only the older generation watches, so the bread and milk is still on the shelves. Hopefully all remains calm and pleasant for the weekend warm up we'll be getting on the East Coast.

 

Here is something grim on the Chinese side of things. https://www.youtube....h?v=7MFoS-M4uF0

 

False reports from the poor man of Asia will cause all sorts of problems for the world.

It was a nice keep calm and carry on conference yesterday, but this is the sum of what people tell me about.

 

Trump told America a 'wonderful woman' died from coronavirus - but the victim was actually a man.

As for COVID19, we haven't got enough public information at present to ascertain the threat level; All we know, from the publicly available statistics, which we should always be skeptical about, is the existence of a flu, capable of doing what most flu strains do, kill the infirm, which is a big deal in 2020, considering the growing number of individuals suffering immunodeficiency due to medications, inactivity, or another illness. With the young only succumbing due to bacterial infections. Currently, nobody knows the mortality rate, it ranges from an estimated mean infection ratio ranging from 0.8% when including asymptomatic carriers to 18% when including only symptomatic cases from Hubei.

 

The general population understands the difference between washing their hands with water to remove the dirt and washing their hands with soap to kill germs, unlike the lost generation (those mainly at risk) of China, which is still mostly unable to fathom microorganisms posing a threat to their health.

 

So for him to state that risks are low, is only giving a sign to not panic, the opposite of the nightly news I just sat through, in which you'd think it was an impending zombie apocalypse, with them suggesting everybody go out for two weeks worth of food so they can survive it at home. Absurd and harmful suggestions are no uncommon thing to hear, but they always stir up trouble for those  poorly-informed, causing a shortage of bread and milk for my PB&J's, not to mention the unnecessary increase in traffic density. It may not be the correct statement to make, but it is a better statement than a fear mongering one, after all, the risk does seem low for now.

It hasn't been this fun to be an American since the internet.
