My points stand and I didn’t say anything about your savings.

No, but you implied that I was suggesting that we should be making a decision to stay at home for months and that I was ignoring the financial hardship that will ensue.

I am not saying "this is what you should do", I am saying that people in most countries better expect to be confined for a period of months, not weeks. Not by choice but by law.

I wish it were otherwise, obviously :-(

Nope.

My comments weren’t directed at you. Only commenting on the balance that will need to be considered.

You can’t take every reply as personal. Sometimes they’re just jumping off points.

That's cool.

My conversations over the last few days basically revolve around people wanting decisive action from our (Australian) government to enforce more stringent lockdowns, not an easing of them. I am very fortunate because I am living in a comfortable environment with trees and space around me. I can't imagine being on the 7th floor of a tenement or apartment block with limited space.

People are flouting social distancing regulations and a lot just don't get it.  It's a bit like trying to convince someone in the 1800s that a glass of water has thousands of creatures living in it. In essence nothing has changed. People think that if you can't see it it doesn't exist.

Yesterday I was walking near the beach and a group of about 10 people who'd obviously been doing a boot-camp thing were hugging and saying goodbye to each other.

I made a comment about "not getting the memo" and ended up in an argument with some complete morons. Pointless? Hopefully not. If all of them go and whinge about "this arsehole this morning" and one friend says "He was right." it was worth it.

Governments ( UK, U.S. Aus. for example) are being extremely generous with payments to the unemployed because they know this a long haul situation and don't want an underclass with nothing getting too angry.

All i have to add is I'd be very worried if I was from the US. Its obviously going to be the next epicentre and a lot of good people will die, Italy had a record 919 deaths in the last 24 hours, its crazy

Just stop there. Every immunity slows the spread. That's all I said.

Just like I just said "Sure", agreeing with you. Not in a snarky way or anything. I think you misunderstood and/or I didn't explain myself properly. We do agree, ok?

Have researchers confirmed you get immunity after getting it? Last I heard it was still a question. Your body is not 100% effective at that. 

Last I read was that some recovered patients in China (meaning they were tested negative) were testing positive again, so if that is true for the general population and not just a few isolated cases, the acquired immunity after getting ill may be short lived, which would of course be a nightmare scenario.

Note that I put a lot of conditionals in that statement. I don't know and neither do any of us. Let the scientists inform us.

Any shelter-in-place should be long enough so that we don't have to do this again.  

If we get it right the first time, the overall impact will be a lot less severe compared to if we don't get it right and have to repeat the shelter-in-place.

This means we need to keep shelter-in-place for a longer period than just two or three weeks out of abundance of caution.

See where all the Spring breakers in South Florida went after they left here.

This is a clever design.

Forty dollars might seem like a little much for a T-shirt, but when all the proceeds from it go to a great charity, it can be money well spent...

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

I'd have bought one but it's only available in navy.

Local high school grad 2018, just died from Covid-19.   He did have asthma.    This disease doesn't discriminate.

My neighbor, who is a scientist at the university, is standing in the street at the back of his SUV disinfecting 5 bags of groceries. He's been out there for a half hour.

I heard a news conference here and a doctor was mentioning that very thing.

Hate to hear that. He was just getting started. Doctors say now no one is technically immune.

My daughter’s friend was exposed and is showing symptoms. They won’t test her because she is 22. They told her to go to the hospital if she is having breathing trouble.

Added: Thankfully my daughter only talks to her online.

Seems like you gotta be half-dead before they'll test you...
