That's probably fine for general public not in close contact but that's just sad for medical staff. Goodluck m8.

Spoke with a trauma surgeon yesterday. He has said his work load has dropped off significantly and he is helping out around the hospital with other non covid patients as the regular staffing levels have been shifted to ensure they have people where they are needed.

Less people driving means less accidents, less people at work means less work accidents etc.

 

Hes glad to see less trauma patients, but it is obviously not how he wants to trade cases.

This really pizzes me off, if we lose our health workers due to lack of basic fugging equipment...this chiit will explode. These people on the front lines are heroes, risking their lives and infecting loved one's at home, and getting paid Jack Chiit to do it.

My basic woodworking masks are 5x better than those POS masks.

PS: And making you wear a condom on your little finger, isn't doing chiit to protect the innocent.

Nope I was perfectly find until the morning time and I woke up with a fever, cough, weakness, sinus type headache, etc.

 

I remember being really freaking sick in december however. Actually a lot of people were sick in december in the hospital, both workers and patients with upper respiratory problems. 

 

They swabbed peeps for the flu but most of them came back negative. 

 

We are all wondering if we got hit with it then. 

I'm fairly certain I had it in December or early January too. We just didn't know what we had.

I have no doubt in my mind the numbers of actual cases are far far far far higher than being told

In the UK and Ireland the lack of testing is crazy, they are literally only testing people who are admitted to hospital or have money to burn

My Missus' symptoms started Friday the 20th, she started with the usual flu stuff, Headache, pain behind the eyes and sinus pain, body aches and a sore throat, she rang her GP on the following Monday as they closed over the weekend and was told to she would be getting a test and needed to self isolate for 2 weeks.

I was fine up until the Tuesday, then it hit me like a shotgun, Headache, Pain behind the eyes, sore throat, cough, inability to take a deep breath without coughing. Luckily I was smart enough not to go anywhere from the Friday just incase the missus had it, even though her doctor told me I was fine to go to work on the Monday knowing we live together and it could spread the virus if she had it. My boss in work told me not to come in and to take the week off on Monday as a result of her having symptoms.

Wednesday, the GP texts my missus and tells her all tests are cancelled due to the latest Guidelines of the WHO, I ring the doctor the same day to tell them I have now got it, explaining my symptoms which by that point included no taste and no smell. They concluded immediately I had the Corona virus as I met the criteria of Fever, Shortness of breath and lack of taste and smell but said they would not be testing me or my missus as we are not unable to breath and in hospital. We were ordered to take 2 weeks in self isolation and that if we couldn't breath to ring an ambulance and that was it.

Its now Friday, I think, cant even remember the days anymore and the MIssus feels a good bit better, and I can kinda breath better but I still feel like ****.

The whole point I am trying to make is that while the worldwide declared cases are half a million right now, if you actually take possible cases which will never be tested into consideration, You are easily looking into the 10's of millions that have it right now, could be even far far far far higher, there are 4 people I know of that more than likely have it but will not be tested, and thats just in a tiny 1 mile radius in Ireland

True here too.  As a part time first responder I can confirm at least in SA we are getting way less major road trauma than usual.  Record lows in fact. Plenty of idiots in small bingles though. 

 

Having said that,  the word is now out that cops aren't performing breath tests now because it's too close contact so the amount of pissed idiots on the road will definitely increase lol

He hasn't used the act though. He enacted it, but hasn't used it.

He should have used the act and put the country in full production.

But the dummy has said that companies are stepping up on their own, then hes ****ting that they are not doing exactly how he wants or how fast.

 

Then the dip**** is in tv saying they dont need what he is now crying about needing.

Thursday 

"I have a feeling that a lot of the numbers that are being said in some areas are just bigger than they're going to need," the president said. "I don't believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators. You know, you go to major hospitals, sometimes they have two ventilators. Now all of a sudden they're saying can we order 30,000 ventilators

 

Friday 

“As usual with 'this' General Motors, things just never seem to work out,” Trump wrote in a tweet. “They said they were going to give us 40,000 much-needed ventilators 'very quickly.' Now they are saying it will only be 6000, in late April, and they want top dollar.”

It's mostly pork. That's why all of those ****ers should be hung.

 

You're in lockdown trying to fend off a virus, so let's give money to a museum that nobody is visiting.

How about we worry about the environmental aspects of the aviation industry.

Flip sides, you have the other idiots who just gave millionaire and billionaire realtor developers a way to account for 100% of their losses as tax write offs. 

You have lose restrictions where CEOs can get large sums of money and as long as they dont do huge layoffs, they can still get out from the rules by having city trolled layoffs. Oh, while also allowing to go back to the stock buybacks off the tax payer when they hit the right person in charge.

 

Americans need to have a new revolution and let the elected idiots know that your earned money is not for their pet projects.

 

I'd say the same up here but there are to many liberal **** who seem to live to tax my pay.

I agree it is unnecessary bloat but i wanna play devils advocate on this just a bit. 

We need to take a MUCH more realistic value assessment approach to what is actually really giving back for the majority of people. We do need some programs/education that allows opportunity to elevate position for the average worker & not put them in enormous debt or disadvantage to compete. No handouts but not an impossible series of road blocks

Reason i say that is If we go too much in one direction there is a real danger of over leveraging in any one area and the 1% taking advantage even more. As good as the economy was before all this let's be honest yeah it was maybe better than it's been in ages but it's wasn't that great for most people. Just the people with f u money. The power gap between the 1% and everyone else is on the rise & will soon reach critical mass. 

A more versatile economy, educational institutes, ways of life etc. allows for redundancies to be in place so that the system can handle multiple failures at once. If we centralize too much and that fails or things change rapidly many are fk'ed except the 1% because they have all the laws and loopholes in place to favor themselves, be protected & the power/money/influence continues to grow the gap more. Everyone else is kinda on their own and even the entrepreneurs/innovators are either getting bought out or bullied out. 

It's a real big problem. As much as we've advanced i think innovation & increasing quality of life is actually on the decline quite a bit since the 1960's in some ways compared to the past. Yeah we made tremendous strides but could be way further along. 

Real question we need to ask is do we really want "smart" cities IOT etc. making everyone softer, complacent and dependant? What happens when all that fails and we've eliminated redundancies. The backs ups & ways of doing things for yourself that are being lost and simply being able to survive because you're not so over leveraged with all eggs in one basket. 

Just because new tech & other advancements hold much incredible promise doesn't mean we should march toward it full steam ahead. There are many "traditional" ways of life and arts being lost and we may need them because the system is more fragile & soft than we'd like to think. Just look at history. Advance to soft....crash...rebuild. Rinse repeat. 

That said. Maybe we need some soft fragile less flexible structure because we got too many damn people & we better bet right. Survival of the fittest. There is that perspective too.

To put it even another way that is less tl.dr. I'm starting to really realize we still need specialist but we need a lot more people to be well rounded as well. 

Too much of one or the other and we're setting ourselves up to fail bigly.

Imagine if Joe was president right now lol. More cronyism, more money laundering and kickbacks, emboldened terrorist, a crappier economy overall with less jobs, more welfare, flooded with more verts, Europe & China would be ripping us off more AND he wouldn't have put the travel bans in place long ago so we'd have even more cases of Covid-19. 

He'd have lost his teeth, bled out his eyes & had 5+ mini strokes to the point he couldn't even talk months ago. 

Biden is weak AF and if he continued on with Obuma policies we'd be a lot worse off than we are now.
