    Really don't want to get in a pissing match with you. I assume you have a problem with my last two sentences?

    We'll we've already had people ingest fish tank cleaner thinking it would stop them from getting the virus. So people will die in other ways the longer this goes on that are tangentially related to hysteria, shutdowns, stay in place orders...

    I'm staying at home. I'm with the program. I also acknowledge there has to be an ending to the closings and understand there will be trade-offs when they end.

    Every non essential businesses were shutdown last night.
    Went to the hospital with my dad today, it’s pretty much a ghost town. grocery stores and drugstores have hand washing stations at the door and tape on the floor every 6 feet at the cash so people keep their distances.
    Was at the drugstore for a new prescription, the have a sheet of plexiglass so you can’t spit in their faces and a scanner for me to scan the prescription so they don’t have to touch it.
    We should be good for 2 -3 weeks without having to go out

    ....and it is your position that the "tangentially related" deaths will be more numerous than deaths due to Covid 19?

    Worked as a chemist for 35 years. You learn not to touch your face after a couple of times when you have lachrimator products on your fingers

    I'm in wisconsin and we started the safe at home thingy today. I got paper from my boss last night to travel. I work at multiple locations in my city so I can travel through my whole city. I'm kind of happy about my commutes to work now. :)

    One Police Dept. had to request people stop calling 911 because they'd run out of toilet paper.

    The upside of all this is that we may be well on the way to finding a cure for stoopid.

    Welcome to the club. The governor here just extend the statewide school closure from April 6 to May 4. We're on our second week of this officially and my company was ahead of the curve, putting us on our third week of work-at-home (about 87% of employees that is across the US).

    I am beginning to know what it's like to be an animal in a zoo.
    Confined to the cage.
    Someone delivers me food .
    Communicates with me from a distance.

    Granted, it is less of a lifestyle change for some of us to be asked to stay home. :D

    We started our nationwide lock in yesterday.

    nothing is open except grocery and pharmacy and essential utilities. Even then they’re cut back to minimum service provision. My client has closed completely but I’ve still got plenty to do, I’m working on a PhD thesis proposal. My wife (AI tech startup) moved to a virtual organisation last week and have barely noticed the change, I suspect they’ll continue on like that after the restrictions are removed and save the rent.... the weirdest thing for me is how quiet the city is - the physical silence is palpable. Also Even though I can and do mostly work from home for some reason because I have to its p!$$ing me off...

    How about offering opinions as facts?

    Meanwhile in SC the governor just issued a bizarro proclamation for SC visitors:
    I mean, I suppose that's some sort of creative way of telling people not to visit SC without actually saying those words.......cuz if you do, by golly you'll be staying for at least 2 weeks!
