  2. Exactly. I don’t know why that is so hard to understand. Myself and several others have made that point/clarification multiple times.
     
  3. I guess now I need to also copy/paste the definitions of “develop” and “response” for you.

    Once again, there isn’t a damn thing in that link that goes against anything myself and others have said.

    Hell, the post you quoted didn’t even have anything to do with immunity.

    My comment was “you will not find a single credible source, like any of the aforementioned (CDC, WHO, Stanford, Harvard, etc), that says ‘people shouldn’t overreact or worry, this is just like the regular flu’”.

    Then you quote that and post a link to some Australian place that said we can develop an immunity to it. WTF?

    Tampa Bay area is the New Yorker retirement home capital. The Tampa Bay Rays weren't formed because those of us that have grown up in this area have such a huge love of baseball. The team was formed because Steinbrenner wanted NY transplants to be able to see the Yankees play down here and not just during spring training.

    The area to watch out for is The Villages just outside of Ocala. That area has been blowing up and growing as the retirement mecca. I could see covid-19 doing some massive damage as the average age there is 71 years old.

    I absolutely get what you’re saying and agree on many points. I just have zero sympathy for the airlines after their multiple bail outs. 20 years ago I received my type rating in a 737 while in college at Embry Riddle. Boom 9/11 happens. No more jobs flying and I walked away from the industry after dropping about 250k in college. That wasn’t their fault. The fact they didn’t learn and are once again asking for handouts. That’s capitalism. But that’s another discussion for another thread. You are right though and people will found a way out. I’m just trying to figure out ways to slow down the spread is all.

    That's specific, and seems tough, but manageable. I hope your local government are forward thinkers and tough as well.

    I don't have any sympathy either. Cake or death. Here is the cake. You'll like it.

    I have been reading posts from friends in NEPA about the Marta busses and shuttle busses still running between NYC and Philly/ Poco is. Marta finally said they were suspending the bus routes last night. Shuttle vans tbd.

    I was just thinking of the Villages the other day and wondering when we would start hearing about cases there. That has the potential of blowing up like California does in fire season.
     
  10. I reckon we will soon find out what happens when a govt chooses to ignore shit and not put restrictions in place.

    The Mexican President (who is an idiot in general) has said he isn't going to stop anything or shut the country down. His comment was something along the lines of "they say we should avoid contact and shouldn't hug, everyone needs hugs". :crackup:

    The business district in Mexico City (where the wife has been working) is a lot less populated that it has been, and several of the hotels have closed almost every floor because people aren't traveling or staying there. But those things are all being done because people are making conscious decisions to try to stay safe, not because of any govt restrictions.

    When she got out of there a little over a week ago, there were only a handful of cases in Mexico. Now there are well over 400, with 1,300 suspected cases (awaiting test results). Mexico is even "later to the party" than the US, but unlike other countries, they aren't mandating closures/isolations/etc.

    So we will just have to see what happens.

    Last I looked, The Villages has something like 130k residents and that doesn't include the number of snowbirds that only come down seasonally.

    Both Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties (make up the majority of the Tampa Bay area) issued a shelter in place order yesterday, but it doesnt require non-essential businesses to close, but does state that they need to follow CDC guidelines, or else they are subject to fines and closure to be enforced by the Sheriffs.

    Have no fret though, we already made the news about not closing our beaches in time (the now infamous picture of Clearwater Beach packed with tourists last week) which the local municipality caved to restaurant owners. The County stepped in and voted to close all beaches.

    Fullington Trailways as well. Seems prudent for the time being. Took that many years, and in its prior iteration, Susquehanna Trailways, from central PA to NYC. Job in NYC for 32 years, lived in NYC a lot of it, substantially telecommuted last decade or so, oddball busride here and there. Still maintain an aprtment in Manhattan, my sister lives and works there, and it is not Armageddon, just more than the usual PITA.

    Go to post # 3120. I originally posted the link around a month ago, the numbers and analysis are real, have been proven to be painfully accurate.

    Colorado now mandatory martial law ("shelter in place") excluding food, docs, booze, guns and weed.

    Jackboots authorized to arrest. Fine and jail time parameters created.

    south kakerlake announced yesterday that every out-of-state visitor has to self-quarantine for 2 weeks

    no clue on how they want to enforce that

    Well, whether a ton of New Yorkers show up down there or otherwise, it's within the FL governor's hands whether to implement controls to keep people maintaining social distancing, and he's chosen to not go that route. So.....

    This would be wonderfully awesome. The Gov't leaving citizens alone. What a concept. It seems like there was a paper or a declaration of some sorts I read, but it was old. Nobody reads old documents anymore.

    Unfortunately, this will NEVER happen. The US Gov is permanently in our lives now in more ways than ever. In this latest panic, more citizens have given them more power by being chicken little screaming at the sky.

    Wow that's crazy.....I was literally just down in Miami for a business meeting 3 weeks ago. I wouldn't have been able to do that today. I would have had to sit in self-quarantine for 14 days.

    This is how quickly things progress with something like this. Imagine where we'll be in another 3 weeks.
