Well said.Go back and look at the epidemic's of Polio and the 1918 Spanish flu. It's all there; no mystery. For those that say it's no worse that the regular flu seem to overlook the fact that 80,000 was the top fatality rate for a year. At this pace the rate will be way, way, way above 360,000, not considering the escalation factor. It isn't a one shot situation. There will be multiple waves and, as the epidemiologists have clearly stated, like influenza, this could be coming back year after year. You doubt that? Go back and look at the Black Plague, it lasted nearly 300 years. The deniers need to go over and witness first hand what an Ebola outbreak looks like and it's numbers are a fraction of what this country is going through.
This has NOTHING to do with politics, wealth, influence or personal opinions. It has everything to do with infection and mortality rates. The deniers should prove how right they are by going to catch a dose, then come back in 4 weeks and tell us how great it was .... assuming your next residence isn't a box six feet under ..... or a refrigerated trailer ......
Wow! IMO, that's pretty extreme.well, I'd say it's far from a small price to pay, but it is a necessary one.
The positive environmental impact it's having even in the short term could mean that the amount of lives saved in the future could be 10 fold. We are over consuming and killing the planet. The easiest way to consume less resources is for less people to be around to consume them.
How so? Sure you can wipe out up to 10% infected if you stretch your hospitals past breaking point which the US has been doing. Fatalities when ICUs are saturated is very significantly increased. So let's be clear what you are saying is bullshit.Bullshit!
You know that doesn't make sense in any scientific medical way.My immune system is just as strong. If not stronger because I don't destroy my natural immunity with immunization shots....People are so gulable.
You have to admit, the issue of Musk reopening Tesla, strongly intersects with the overall spread of the disease, and the reopening of the country in general.Back on topic please.
So you will note that leeway was given to some off topic but after a warning, no.You have to admit, the issue of Musk reopening Tesla, strongly intersects with the overall spread of the disease, and the reopening of the country in general.
Musk is after all, proclaiming he knows more than the CDC, and local health officials.
Metaphorically speaking, a cop sees a car driving the wrong way up a one way street. He says to the guy, "didn't you see the arrow"? To which the man replies, "I didn't see the Indians either".So you will note that leeway was given to some off topic but after a warning, no.
This pertains to the topic, if only in a humorous, some would say, "sarcastic", way.Discuss the actions of Elon Musk pertaining to this news item - for everything else, please create a new thread in the General Discussion board.
Erstwhile I'm wondering if the Alameda County Jail, has a runway next to it that would accommodate Musk's private jet.
All the data shows is it's spread very quickly in densly populated states and countries, the lockdown is clearly slowing the spread to other states such as California, by lifting the lockdown California could be the next hot spot of infections due to its large population. Musk is being Naive, unless he's got sanitory stations and masks for his workers then it's a massive risk. The guy think's he's so clever because he's a billionaire but he's not a Virus specialist so he needs to pipe down and listen to the actual scientists and politicians that are using that data.The data does not support the lockdown. Respect to Elon for taking a stand.
Following studies and listening to doctors on the front line. The data does not support the lockdown. Although it is becoming increasingly difficult to pull up any data that runs counter to the WHO, as it's censored on social media, Google, and ignored by mainstream media (or taken out of context and used to fear monger). I should have compiled a list. I guess I'm stuck with what is still easily pulled up in Google and has yet to be censored.What data? That US is by far #1 in this? Not enough yet? Yes, let's support billionaires' ambition earn additional billion over all else!
Well, this reply is off topic and will likely be removed. But, I'm 71, yet have no trouble digesting dairy products. Vitamin D as added to all milks in the US, for those of us who don't get out much, and want to avoid skin cancer.From a study of 780 confirmed COVID-19 cases, less than 2% of those who died had normal vitamin D levels. But lets lock people up inside and have them avoid sunlight.
