I'm the only one with surgical gloves on so I don't touch my face. Works well!

How exactly does wearing surgical gloves prevent you from touching your face?

I was out earlier today and to be honest, it looked like any other sunday around here, I stopped at work briefly, they were fairly busy, about normal for a cold sunday afternoon, I stopped by Lowes to get some lumber for a project, there were PLENTY of people shopping there, I also stopped at Walmart to get a few things, same thing, PLENTY of people out shopping, in fact, the cashier lines were LONG at walmart, (so Im guessing large retail stores will be the next to close down, since they want to target places where 25 or more people congregate). I also called in a pizza to pick up, they were business as usual for a sunday too.


Yet I keep hearing people from other cities saying their area is like a ghost town, no one eating out or shopping, Im not sure what to make of this?

I also heard today that OH gov ordered all restaurants to be closed starting at 9m tonight, I would bet, large retail stores are next to be closed, Im not sure if they will close gas stations or not, its possible, because we have ALOT of people coming and going thru the day.

Im starting to wonder if there is something else going on and the virus is a disguise...maybe this is a plan to devastate the US economy intentionally or 'cull the herd' so to speak. Maybe I am just distrustful of Govt, or maybe Im just too much of a conspiracy theorist?!! lol


Anyone care to comment or add a theory?
Why would anyone invent or exaggerate a world wide story just to devastate the US economy, when it will devastate other economies?

Viruses mutate. There is no need to look further to explain something that is common.

I guess it's a psychological thing...the subconscious mind knows ya
can't really scratch anything - not even your scalp, really --- touching your nose with latex? Ick...
there is no urge in me.
Maybe that would not be the case for you.

Boredom? No.
Diabolical people could have their diabolical reasons! It could collapse the Market ---
they buy low and wait for all to go back to normal in a yr or 2 - triple their $$.

Maybe the goal is to damage all economies?


Maybe the idea is if you can't compete then bring it all to a standstill.

Chinese medical authorities have found that an antiviral drug called “favipiravir” has shown promise in treating COVID-19 patients

Quote:
The drug, known also by its market name Avigan and developed by a Japanese Fujifilm subsidiary called Fujifilm Toyama Chemical, was reportedly able to turn COVID-19 tests negative for those who were infected after just four days as part of a trial involving 240 patients from Wuhan, China, and 80 patients in Shenzhen.

Without treatment, the median time was 11 days

The drug also appeared to improve lung condition in 91 percent of patients, compared to just 62 percent whose lung conditions improved without the drug.
Maybe there is an alternative to a vaccine. I hope so.

If I were you, I would wait for a few months unless you have other money you want to invest. This thing will not stop in the next few weeks unfortunately. Possibly better to place your money into physical things as there has already been a (small) run on the banks and things can only get worse before they get better.

Indeed a mask is a cultural issue in China as, not just because of a virus, the big cities are damn polluted. But I think for this you have to wear a certain type of mask.
Yes, its true. The coronavirus face masks are useless for pollution (too thin and no air pollution filter), and the pollution ones have a valve in them to allow your breath out easily. That would not be effective for coronavirus though.

Is anyone concerned that deaths exceed recoveries and the difference continues to grow? If it stays at the current pace, that 9241 confirmed will eventually be 5500 dead.
