Yeah right !

Looks like we have another Trump troll heading for the bot farm from which they came. What a shit stirrer. A ban is coming on at least 10 members because you are basically toxic people. I am

Right that's enough. I am ashamed of some of you, quite frankly.

I am putting my foot down in this fucking thread. eleison is no longer welcome. Can't allow racism here, even when it's in disguise as patriotism. If he rejoins I will track him and take leg

Sooooo, basically you guys don't want any of that sweet, sweet AMERICAN created vaccine for the virus???  Because there's very high chance, it will be created in an AMERICAN lab using capitalistic means and methods.  Whatever........... basically the rest of the world has been sucking on the teet of the American people for so long and complaining, why change now, right???  🙂

here in italy everything is stopped. I film mainly sporting events and conventions.. so for at least 2 months (if all goes well) all my appointments are cancelled. no income . You can hardly move from home. 

Just some advice for those of you that aren't in lock down yet:

- gather canned and long term foods so you have to go outside least possible.

-try to get anti bacteria hand gel before they are sold out.

- if you can manage to work from home, prepare for doing so for several weeks.

- if you have a house in the middle of nowhere, gather your supplies and get there a.s.ap. anybody around you could be infected.

As much as I don't want to discuss Covid-19 on a video site, I would like to ask my fellow forum members to not horde every single bit of soap and antibacterial hand sanitizer...

Antibacterial soaps/hand sanitizer gel will not kill Covid-19 because it is a virus and not a bacteria. Hand washing with regular soap will have a more beneficial effect.

With that said, when soap isn't available, hand sanitizer is an acceptable alternative but it will only have a lasting effect if everyone has access to it.

So please don't be one of the assholes that are stocking up for the End of Days.

If you have Rubbing Alcohol lying around you can create your own sanitizer containing at least 2/3 rubbing alcohol and the rest with Aloe Vera Gel.

Out here it is toilet paper for some reason. I saw some reports on TV about people cleaning out stores but thought it may have been just a made up joke story that perhaps happened at one location, but last night when I went down to the local supermarket and went past the isle that normally has toilet paper/tissue paper/paper towels and the toilet paper part was literally empty. Why? Lol.....do people think they are going to be crapping like crazy?

At work we have 20L drums of isopropanol, so we can make as much home made sanitizer as we want.

Well the Aloe Gel is sold out as well. Supposedly, you need 90% alcohol to make it but that hasn't stopped people from buying up everything. It sucks since I am a carpenter by trade and aloe gel heals my hands right up in the winter. So the good people who can't speak in full sentences are now chemists. Ugh.

There is always some dumb mf that has to make a global calamity into some political shit throwing contest. So. Sick. Of. It.

Aprox. 30 people have died in the USA from COVID19.  However, thousands have already died from the common flu.  I'm also sure thousands more have died from car accidents.  SoooOOOooOOOoooOO.  Is the common flu a global calamity?  Are car accidents???  In my city, chicago; I think there have been more people shot than killed by COVID19.

 

There is always some dumb mf that doesn't know math and likes to call other people "dumb mf".... So. Sick. Of. It.  There is two paths. One is paved with good intentions.. the other is paved with rational thought.  The one with good intention gives you the ability to think you are smarter than everyone else because it's a global calamity.  The the path looks at the statistics and says, 30 people dead, while not good, it is not a global calamity.  Perhaps in the future, it maybe... but it is not right now.

Never mind with what I wrote above.. It's a global calamity!!!!  EVeryone stay home!!!  Don't go out.  Buy TP, rice, beans and GUNS.  It's crazy out there!!!!!  The government is lying.  TOM HANKS AND HIS WIFE IS DYING!!! God, save us..

...696 Total cases with 7 deaths, 325 Recovered, 364 Active, 32 Serious/Critical (as of this posted image above). Worst-case scenario that all of the 32 Serious Cases turn fatal would bring the total deaths to 39 yielding a calculable Death Rate of 5.6% for that specific population (however, ages and health unknown). With a recovery rate of 50% for that group the total would be 23 Total Deaths, yielding a Mortality Rate of 3.3%. And if the recovery rate for that group is 75% the Total Deaths come in at 15 yielding a Rate of 2.1%, again, patient ages and health prior to infection would yield more-informative statistical analysis.


Cruise ship passengers definitely skew a lot higher than the general population! We could treat that number as an upper bound.

My understanding is that the various shut downs for COVID are basically an attempt to slow the inevitable spread so that hospitals do not get overwhelmed treating the frail and infirm that get hit with the virus.  They're trying to avoid triage.


Which is unfortunately what Italy is having to do now, giving up on really sick cases which seem more likely to die so they can focus on the (relatively) healthy ish cases instead who still can live.

I'm betting on Israel being first?

I've got two weeks worth of canned food, just in case I need to go into quarantine.

Good that I havent bought anything from this year at all..


On the 27th Feb I did my biggest purchase of the year: a new Lectrosonics LT

Oops

Going to try very hard not to do any more major purchases at all! Not until I get a better idea of how my finances will look this year, as the future is looking cloudy and uncertain. We're going to hit a coronavirus great recession for sure :-/

No, pretty shocking, isn't it? No life is a waste of our attempt and endless struggle!

Human life is priceless. One sole life is worthy of everything and any Dunkirk spirit. The harder the more effort we must put on it.

As Spielberg taught the world going along Saving Private Ryan but can be his Schindler's List, you save a life, you save the whole humankind...

 

 

E : -)
