yeah, in my last post I was referring to how your timeline was missing 2 months of asymptomatic transmissions. but that's ok, you don't live here and don't have access to Hawaii's timelines so I can see how it's a hard hill to climb without these numbers and dates as a foundation. I'll just keep myself out of your thread.
Okay...okay. I was speculating that the virus most likely came from a direct Asian source. That's all. I did check the time line to make sure I wasn't delusional. Hawaii had its first reported cases on March 6, 14, and 18. Essential-only travel began March 18. A 14 day quarantine was not put in place for visitors until March 21. In Thailand, we had been exposed to 33 cases of the virus from Asian sources by mid February. You can't tell me that there were no Asian visitors at all in Hawaii before the incoming flights were limited March 18. Yes, flights from China were stopped at the end of January. What, Hawaiians never visit Japan or Korea? They couldn't have returned before March 21?

I'm sorry to make a beef about some manini thing. My original intent was just banter with Irse, and it certainly isn't important that you agree with me over a speculation. Peace out.
My idea was that if it came directly from Asia, why did it take so long before people got infected since there is so much travel from Asia? We should have gotten it about the same time as other Asian countries.

It's a mystery...bro. Did Hawaii have a better class of tourist? Maybe. Why wouldn't Japanese, Korean, Indian, Chinese, and Thai tourists travel to Hawaii...and Hawaiians likewise travel to those countries and return? I swear, as I watched this tragedy unfold...I saw more random, bumpkin, Chinese tourists than I've ever seen habitate my space ever before. Sure, it was probably a heightened awareness...because of our early knowledge of the contagion. My buddy in Maui agreed.

The answer is unimportant. Hawaii fared better than most US states. Hawaii is full of warm...loving people. This is conducive to virus spread. Hawaiians also respect. This helped to counter the...show of aloha. Spread from secondary countries like Korea and Japan slowed the transmission...I believe.

I don't know. I hope all Hawaiians respect the kupuna and wear masks. Aloha.

Why does Ige always have to have the news conference during the Dr. Oz show? Dr. Oz is more informative.
I just can't handle listening to Fozzie Bear.
lol, the voice always made me think muppets, but fozzie is the exact one he sounds like
Put that porkpie hat and tie on, and that's who Ige would look like too. Wocka wocka wocka!

Who's Fozzie Bear? Ige or Dr. OZ? I can't stand listening to Ige. Puts me to sleep. Reminds me of a monotone lecturer and I'm asleep within 5 min.

Listening and comparing the two speaking, in no way can anyone accuse Dr. Oz of being Fozzie Bear. Put a porkpie hat and polka dot tie on Ige and he even LOOKS like Fozzie Bear!

I have a much younger sibling who watched Sesame Street daily, as well as Electric Company when he was small kine. Kid grew up to be his high school's valedictorian.
