    And on the East Coast apparently they think lowering AFR by 1% will combat a virus. Idiots...

    Agreed. You want a leaner AFR to suppress a virus. That's just simple stoichiometry and biomedicine, there.

    The bubble has not burst here fully yet but we have over 50 cases in the UK, Government sending out mixed messages on what people are supposed to do. Hospital workers who are on Zero hour contracts and have no sick pay,say they will still go to work in the hospital because they need the money! Some small business / public meetings in the capital cancelled yet Large Sporting events where hundreds of thousands of people will attend and use public transport to get to the Venues are NOT currently cancelled,

    Clearly shows that no one in Government the UK has a clue how to deal with the Virus! Worst terms they are talking up to 80% of the country "Might" be affected by the end of the year!

    Best drive the Life out of your Vipers Now!

    Just rotate 10 degrees after every sneeze.... After 36 sneezes, visibility will be reduced. Clean Collar or discard.

    OK....in all seriousness....

    The first case in Texas just showed up in my county. Honestly, it is scary. Let me tell you what you are all in for...……..

    First, you will get no information. In my case, a 70 year old man is now in "stable" condition. We have a fairly populous country. You would expect that the government would be forthcoming......they will not. The government officials are trying to use HIPA laws to limit the information coming out. HIPA was never intended to cover information on where a person travels, plane they took, restaurants they ate at etc. The government, however, does not release anything. Instead of one section of the county being on edge, the entire country now doubts what is going on. Fear spreads......

    Second, you will have a bunch of high paid idiots show up and say "Wash your hands". Other than that there are no answers.

    The whole spectacle is insulting and you wonder about just how much of your taxes go to these morons.....

    South West Houston - Fort Bend Country is in a state of shock....people are not going out......the internet is going crazy and you get "Wash Your Hands".....

    So basically, your Government is giving out the same message as ours. Meanwhile latest rise in UK is now at 96 persons so that's a 50% rise in 24 hours!

    Spring break is nearly upon us. That's travel time for millions. You think people will cancel their prepaid and long awaited vacations?

    I fear it's going to be armageddon when all these travelers return.

    Fear is a powerful thing. In the attempt to stop a panic, there can be a lack of information. But that lack of information leaves people free to speculate and fill in the blanks themselves.

    Do you run to the ER every time you get a sniffle? I don't. The diagnosed cases of COVID-19 are just that. Diagnosed. In a medical facility.

    COVID-19 does not turn people into zombies or cause you to grow a second head. If it did, it would be much easier to figure out who has it. There MUST be oodles of people who have been infected, thought it was a standard cold or flu, did nothing out of their ordinary, and recovered. All without anyone else knowing.

    COVID-19 is not mustard gas. Sneezing into the wind will not infect a city. It's going to be passed, as all colds and flus are passed, by direct contact with it. If you are sick, you cough or sneeze into your hands, and then your hands touch stuff, and other people touch stuff and then touch one of their openings, and that's how they get sick. So yes. Wash your hands. Tell your bacteria-riddled snotnose children to cover their mouth and nose when they cough or sneeze. Stay away from super-crowded places. Use hand sanitizer. If you're sick, FFS, stay home from work if at all possible.

    These are things that you should do with any kind of cold or flu. They are common sense. Why is being told to do this now all of a sudden some kind of governmental cover-up?

    I've got a trip to Scottsdale later this month scheduled and my plan is simple: Bring some Clorox wipes, hand them out to my seat mates, and tell them: "Well.... this plane isn't going to clean itself. Lets get busy."

    This issue is quite simple when you look at it.
    1) We have individuals in our local government who do not tell us what the travel plans or activities of an infected person were. These individuals were out in the open public, so nothing can be considered "secret".
    2) The public should know where and when this infected individual was in the open community as a public health issue so issues can be addressed.
    3) The local government refuses to do so.
    4) Other areas (local governments) do not follow this standard. Think about it. People were on the "Diamond Princess". Why wasn't that "protected information"? We know people's travel plans.
    5) You have some areas doing things right and then you have others who have no clue.
    6) IF you look at it in another context, it is even more stupid. If you have an STD and you intentionally have sex with another person, you can be charged with battery. The defense of "I did not know that she would actually catch something" is not successful. Here....we have a deadly disease. People walk around with impunity because others think they are "protected under HIPA".
    7) People are morons...….this has got to be solved but quick or there will be super serious consequences...…

    And don't get me started on what will happen in the hospitals if there is a swarm of people going there. If you are in a border town in Texas and there are a lot of illegal aliens in the community for whatever reason. If these unfortunate individuals get infected and are in all the ICU beds if this goes really bad, will there be room for the citizens who actually contributed to the health care system? Do they kick out a "non-paying" person to put a "paying" person in for care? Is health care now rationed based upon first in, first served? Are you lucky if you get it first? Unlucky if you get it three weeks from now and are told that you must "self isolate" because there are no beds?

    These are all super serious questions that nobody wants to think about, talk about, or be questioned about because they will be considered "xenophobic" or some other garbage.

    As far as I am concerned....a 2 percent death rate is unacceptable. Just because people are older when they die from this does not make their lives any less valuable.

    I expect a lot from my tax dollars.

    I agree w/ Savage but consider:


    Ill see your 1 infection in your TX county, and raise you with 10 Deaths in WA state where I live. 10 of 11 dead in USA are in WA. Big businesses closing; schools closing; Events cancelling; Cruise ships delaying.....

    Yesterday a China-USA-Portland traveler gave this chilling TV interview:

    He was in central China, 1300 miles from epicenter, 30 days. His Chinese locale became a rationing, quarantined ghost town.

    He took a train and then a boat to Hong Kong, mandatory masked. Train to HKG Airport
    He flew to Vancouver BC Canada. Temperature checked entering Canada.

    He changed planes to fly to SEATTLE WA , then PORTLAND OR with ZERO checks, questions, or questionnaires. Free to roam.

    He feels that he should self-isolate for 14 days. Local health dept agreed.

    There was supposed to be an exclusive supercar club meet in London, they have decided to Postpone it until July!!

    Now at the moment there is a small amount of people that have the Virus, so why not continue with the show? It's not like thousands attend.

    But to have the Show in July the chances are the Virus will be even more wide spread than it is now NUTS!

    Originally being from New Jersey, I agree with you. Texas is really more prepared than most. If this is indicative of what we are in for (in Texas), hold on.....it's not going to be pretty.

    For Jon-B...I was not trying to compare our lone case to your problems up there. I was just trying to sensitize others who are on the forum as to the issues. It is coming and coming very fast. Best of luck to you...

    Wash your hands, don't shake hands with people, wear a mask if you are likely to be in a close environment (Traveling on Underground system) You could even get some disposable latex gloves.

    Good luck at NVE Make sure you drink plenty of fluids.....I recommend Old No7

    But it's OK the Tokyo Olympics is still on
