Thanks for the share.   This is very informative.    It makes us realize we aren't out of the woods yet.

Looking at the data models showing the differences in "letting it ride" vs. social distancing controls is very eye opening.

It looks like the US along with other countries are declaring war on the cartels.   They are saying the cartels are trying to take advantage of the pandemic.

The city of Flint, Michigan just announced a curfew from 9 pm to 6 am for all non-essential people.

How is that a restriction? Why not make it 7pm to 9am or something?

Of course they are. A lot of the stimulus money is going to end up in the pockets of drug dealers.

Flint curfew

I can't speak for the mayor but there are still a lot of people ignorant about the virus.

My point was restricting people from 9pm to 6am isn't really much of a restriction. Why not actually put some teeth in it - what could someone non-essential be doing at 6:15 am that they can't do at 9am?

I completely agree with you but they were saying there was a lot of inner city young people hanging out at party stores late in the evening.   This curfew really doesn't do much.    Most of the stores including fast food places have changed their hours around here.

Yeah, okay, at least it'll give some teeth to the enforcement of that if it's going on.

The virus threatens to spread widely across Africa, where several countries have seen hundreds of positive tests, according to Johns...

So currently, even with China's fake numbers, it appears the mortality rate is about 5%.  That's scary.

Random Coronavirus thoughts...

Are we going to do all of this again when the 2nd (mutated) strain of coronavirus (COVID-20?) starts spreading? What about the 3rd... Is this the new normal?

I'm tired of hearing commercials stating that "We are in this together." We should be in this separately, right? Too literal?

If I am going to get COVID-19, assuming that I haven't already, I would rather get it now and get it over with.

What the media and policymakers are not telling us is that the longer we delay the development of herd immunity, the more high-risk people will die.
