He just realized that he's 72yo and in the "high risk" bracket!

They thought John Travolta had Covid19, but it turned out to be Saturday Night Fever.

The problem, according to the CDC is not the mortality rate....For everone who becomes infected they will according to the latest stats give it too 3 people. OF those total case between 7 and 13% will require hospitalization to survive, with a 3 percent death rate of total cases. THE PROBLEM is that there are just sooo many hospital beds and ventilators in the current healthcare system of any country. Allowing the virus to go unchecked will overwhelm the system.

So, if during this little harmless virus you have a car wreck or a mild heart attack you will be going into an EMS system that is overloaded beyond capacity. Cut your finger off with a table saw??? Well, you get the idea.

We normally keep 2 weeks of food about the place, we added about 2 weeks of canned goods and extra bleach just in case. Between my wife and I and our children we have 3 homes and several little ones who are out of school for the forseeable future. We have shared essential inventories and should one of us get sick we will use 1 of the 3 houses to isolate them OUTSIDE of the gubberment control until they need medical assistance...

THIS is the **** that scares me...

FOLKS GET OUT THERE AND SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL BUSINESSES. NOW... NOT NEXT MONTH.
Mrs. Cusser and I went out for dinner last night (Sunday night, Phoenix AZ), a locally-owned restaurant.

Anyone here remember Andromeda Strain? Infection rate increase parallels here with Wuhan. But
I don't foresee this tapering off anytime soon without a combination of severe belt tightening vis a vis
self quarantine as well as fast track development of a vaccine. How would the govt or society simply
say "oh, it's all fine now" and have things return to normal? The silliness of "no groups more than
50...vs 250... vs 300... vs 500 is a head scratcher. In (my) reality, it really is more line 1-2

Glad we went out Friday. Here in the Socialist Gulag of Massachusetts, all bars and restaurants are are ordered closed for a month.
I expect damn few of them will reopen by then.

It is important to get educated about it and help the efforts to contain and mitigate the spread and impact of it for the sake of not overloading the health system. I too thought well it's similar to the flu, no big deal and sure for most of us if we get it we will survive it but it will be pretty rough. The whole reason of taking it serious and helping to contain and buy more time is so that it doesnt spread like wild fire and huge numbers get sick at once because there is only so much capacity for proper treatment for those that get really bad. The economy already had issues and down turns are part of the cycle, it's better for the economy to crash and have enough healthy people make it through for a recovery than take a chance and have much more casualties and the related costs for trying to save the wall street pricks. What everyone should be getting behind is a bail out for the people, if they can print money for the banks they can print money for the people.It is important not to panic, but equally so we can't dismiss a serious problem and we are better off safe than sorry.

I was called by my President today, myself and my sales team are not to go too the office for the ext 3-4 weeks, to demonstrate social distancing. All documents that I need to approve and sign will be sent to me digitally and I am not to shake hands and only meet with clients if they request it. It's getting tight around here.

that article is a bit misleading. declaring an emergency is a situational based issue, such as in this case.
with respect to firearms, gasoline, ammunition, food, price fixing etc has been in the Champaign ordinance
for 50 years and no one appears to have made much of a fuss over it. Local executive language such as
that codified in the Champaign ordinance is pretty much boilerplate in many many jurisdictions in the USA.
still, whether this was the intention of the Mayor or not, the broad scope of powers activated at this time
does raise concern. perhaps the'll use this opportunity to amend the Champaign emergency powers
language to a less threatening level.

What's with the 40-49 group? goes from .18% to .4% and then at 50 it goes back to .13%? Great. I'm going to die.....
