Another cruise ship with coronavirus victims docks in Florida. Why are these people still going on cruises? Are people really that stupid?

they really shouldn't be running at this point. saw a ship the other day by aloha tower, I hope that's the broken one and not new ones still coming here.

Detroit bus driver complains on Facebook about a lady coughing on his bus without covering her mouth on March 21st, he takes ill on March 25th, and dies of Covid-19 on April 1st.

This article shows his rant on facebook regarding the coughing woman. Be advised that it does have swearing if you're offended by swearing.

saw this, pretty sad. dude has a major point, people have been told non-stop for weeks now to curb these habits along with their consequences. if you still do it, you're just a crappy selfish person.
I saw that yesterday. That's sad.
This is also a sad commentary about our failure in the US to teach common sense like covering their mouths when you sneeze or cough whether there is a coronavirus or not or, whether it is flu season or not. It's not just proper etiquette but a safety issue because the person next to you might have cystic fibrosis or asthma and your disease could be deadly to these people.

The most interesting aspect of the article below is that they have no data on who may have gotten the virus and exhibited mild symptoms and recovered since they were never tested. Also, getting the disease doesn't mean that you will build immunity to the disease since it requires more study.

Walmart is limiting shoppers to 5 per 1000 sq feet.

Target is doing the same although it doesn't state # of people in the store or how.

It pisses me off when I see people don’t cover their mouth when they cough or sneeze. Especially when my dad doesn’t cover his mouth and all my life growing up he’s been telling myself, my sisters and his grandchildren to cover their mouths. I swear he’s gotten me sick at least three times due to him not covering his mouth.

:lol: I got two of those. All I need is toilet tissue. I can save my other masks for leaf blowing.

Nice Q&A regarding coronavirus and doctor at USC.

This is what the curve looks like where I live. Masks, gloves, hand sanitizers, curfews, social distancing, lock-down of non-essential services (me included) may have worked. They even shut down all international flights. Man, I hope I can get back to work soon...by soon, I mean in 30 days.

Didn't this virus supposedly come from bats? I don't see why other mammals can't get it.

Last night they showed all the people at Lanikila beach. It was crowded, why aren't they enforcing the stay at home order? It's one thing to go surfing and then go home when pau, but these guys are mingling with each other on the beach like nothing was going on.

I recall that in earlier readings that it came from bat feces. Made me think of the movie Ace Ventura When Nature Calls and the highly valued guano.

haven't validated this site/info yet, but found a site showing national+state projections using the chris murray model (same projection model white house staff references) if full social distancing kept up until may 31
