Vegas has closed a lot. The Strip is a ghost town.

This is not good. I have "over reacted" as anyone. I just don't recall this reaction to SARs or Swineflu. Perhaps we are just better informed today.

 

Not blaming anyone, as I myself have shut it all down. I just think we may be causing more harm than the virus. Still, I a'int chancing it.




Living through Darwinism is so much worse than learning about about it in school.

This is why: Comparing COVID-19, SARS and MERS by the numbers 

 

8,096 cases of SARS in almost 8 months, with COVID-19 surpassing that number in 53 days, and now over 12x that number. MERS was far lower.

 

I just keep thinking about the supply lines and huge numbers of people out of work due to the flu-like symptoms alone, without even considering the worst case mortality rate.

Re: Massachusetts to close all bars / restaurants

Notably, at least in MA, restaurants still provide takeout and delivery. The ban is just for on-premises meal consumption. It's not a total shutdown.

 

Of course, some places may lose a huge share of business if they rely on extremely perishable food or if state/local laws prevent takeout/delivery of alcohol.

Sure. Let's all keep panicking and put half the country out of work. These people who live paycheck to paycheck don't have bills after all. 

The nuclear option is always so much better than just asking those deemed at risk to stay home. 🤦‍♂️
