I'm Ok. I ended up getting sicker, with some chest pain included, but recently got better. Unfortunately, it's hard to know if I had COVID-19 or not.
Great news that you "recently got better." Too bad there isn't a cheap test that could determine if you had it or not. Maybe this will prove workable: https://www.zmescience.com/science/mit- ... ine-15134/

Good to hear you are feeling better!

I don't know how I'm going to stand this even if I don't get sick. I never thought I'd say I miss going to work but I do.

The Navy Commander who was fired by a Trump appointee and berated by Trump himself, has tested positive for the virus today. 155 of his Sailors have also tested positive.

Does anyone have a loose count for how many aid tents and health stations that antifa, blm, or Hillary Clinton have constructed in response to the covid19 pandemic? asking for a friend.

No, no, I think you get us just fine. But when healthcare is big business, gub'mint is unfair competition.

You’ve got it right. Rather, subs has a tough time grasping basic concepts about the US that even foreigners know about.

Hey, EAllusion. Ajax said you weren't going to die, and you didn't die! I mean, New York City has about 7,000 coronavirus deaths right now, but pssht. Ajax's got this.

I do wonder how many dead, sick, and infected there would've been if the US in particular hadn't 'flattened the curve'. There's no way of knowing, of course, but I have the sneaking suspicion when we start to come out of this the Conservatives on the board (and elsewhere) will be like, "See? It was a nothingburger, and y'all destroyed the economy for this Democrat hoax."

As far as Life Under the Coronavirus goes, I'd strongly recommend checking out Ozark if you haven't already. I just made it through Season 1 and holy ____ this is some Breaking Bad levels of intensity.

Ozarks is great, they actually filmed it a few miles from where I live (not in the Ozarks). Jason Bateman bought the Bluecat Lounge and a friend of mine waited tables there for years.

As far as COVID goes, the Right is already doing this and they've been doing it for at least a week.

"Initial projection was 2 million, then 100,000, then 60,000" and this has evolved into one of two different arguments:

1. Trump must be doing awesome for the projections to keep going down
2. This proves the virus was a big nothing burger and we crashed the economy for nothing.

I don't think Trump had any special effect on this and certainly the virus isn't a hoax. Trump wants to reopen the economy by May 1, but that might be wishful thinking. I know I want to go back to normal as soon as possible, but, if doing so will give our health care system a big dose of Italy and New York, it's not worth it. Hopefully a rational, apolitical, postmortem will be done after this is over so we can get to the bottom of it and see if the response was too little or too much. Perhaps shutting down the economy was an over-reaction? However, so much is still unknown about this virus that perhaps the reaction was not enough? Politics should stay out of this but that is probably too much to ask of both parties going into a presidential election.

Just finished the first episode of Ozark. It's definitely binge-watchable.
