    Who will be the first one to get the virus?

    That's the problem... shares so many symptoms with flu and pneumonia it's impossible to say without testing. Whatever the case, hopefully you dont have to deal with it anymore.

    Early March I had 101 temp, cough (that lasted about 3 weeks), muscle weakness, fatigue, chills, headache. Only thing I didnt have was shortness of breath but apparently that only shows up in 15-20% of cases. Might have been the flu, but I never got a runny nose and it seems like a decent enough...

    Coronavirus

    Right. And you just have a huge portion of Americans that are pig-headed. And the President of the United States and Fox News spending the first few weeks of this crisis writing it off as a hoax. And young people who say "it isn't affecting young people I don't give a fuck". The list goes...

    Thanks a lot man, appreciate it. Fortunately she hasn't had too bad of a reaction to the chemo. The big thing now is just being worried about her getting this thing while her immune system is compromised. They've been really good about quarantining, but she still needs to go in for her...

    Coronavirus

    This is very hard to quantify, so you may be right. But those countries are actually blocking travel, police stops at city borders, enforcing the lockdown with arrests. We have no such restrictions; I can go visit anyone and will never get pulled over asking where I'm going. Vast majority of...

    +1. Interesting debate to be had about civil liberties or other long-term damages potentially being done. No debate at all to be had that social distancing isn't good for an infectious disease.

    I mean wtf is this? What happened to this? A couple of weeks ago it was fine for you to make opinion-based statements and educated guesses. I can't do the same?

    I agree that weve done a pretty good job overall. Just not as locked down as other countries. How is effect of lockdown on spread debatable? Diseases spread via contact with others. Limiting contact limits pace of spread. There really isn't any debate there.

    I was just "thinking out loud", or whatever the posting equivalent to that is. It never even occurred to me that this would be read as some kind of cop out. This isn't something I just came up with out of the blue, it's a hotly debated/contemplated issue...

    I'm telling you unequivocally that you are wrong. I'm not that guy. I'm wrong quite often. I'm willing to admit when I am. I'm praying that I am here (or, at least whatever the atheist equivalent of praying is... hoping like hell, I guess.) I can't stand people that do that shit. Was in a...
