Update: my wife and son today in our front yard. My mother who was positive sitting in the front porch. We are all feeling 100% on our 13th day of quarantine. My father, who has had it worst, is still

What’s up jets nation!!! So updates: I’m like 85% better, would be 109 but I have a 7 month old that wakes up no later than 6am and I take first shift (6-830 feed play then nap at 830) and our babysit

Will keep everyone updated. Once I’m healthy I’ll tell you why my work is where the blame lies and I’m going to sue them. And contribute some moneys to sign clowney Anderson and whoever else we need l

 has the possibility to mutate and kill many more

Relatively minor risk from what I've read and it makes sense. A more deadly virus is more easily contained and there is little evolutionary benefit to a virus that kills its host quickly, the mechanics of evolution should mean the less deadlier strains get passed on more than the deadlier ones

A few more weeks of this. Once there is a consistent downward trend in hospital admissions , I can’t see this continuing. Too many people taking financial hits. Isolate the vulnerable and everyone else saves the economy. Stay safe and keep up the social distancing

New York City reported a one-day total of 351 deaths on Sunday morning. On a normal day in New York City, 158 people die, so more than twice as many people are dying in the city of the virus than of all other causes combined.

Its finding the right balance because people will not like what comes after America crashes. 

I think that starting May 1, State by State, the stay at home orders will be released, Companies will start ordering employees back to work, we will have to wear masks in public and in the workplace and will be warned to not socialize after work, no hugging or kissing anyone and urged to social distance.  People will break the restrictions, the virus will spike again but it will be too late to do anything because businesses will not shut down again.  We will have to live in a culture of people getting sick and dying every day for the next year.  This is just reality.

it'd be dumb, so we'll prolly do it...

so, do health care workers just LET people die? why should health care workers have their risk at work go up hundreds of percdnts? ...   so you can go to ******* applebees?

I think this is a fairly accurate prediction. Until we have a vaccine, the only hope for containment is testing. The quick turnaround test is key to starting the economy back up. I dont think there's any way that people would be able to survive a year/year and a half shutdown.

Italy had to make that call. Their hospitals got over run and they began turning away anyone over 80 years old.

Frightening time for sure.

There will come a point where the deaths by the virus will become less and less a threat. You cannot keep the economy shut down interminably. There is always a school of thought "But if it saves one life!", but that eventually gives way to statistics and math. In theory your could reduce traffic accident fatalities to zero.. by banning cars. That sounds absurd on it's face, but if you think about it this is no different, only a different set of variables and tradeoffs.  It's life and death, but it's also mathematical. Viruses dies out, mutate to harmlessness or simply became less dangerous with herd immunity over the long term. We aren't there yet. But when we are, things will get ...interesting.

I can’t get behind this. Everyone needs to stay isolated for a decent amount of time and until EVERYONE is, there’s the potential of mass infection. Those morons on spring break, the morons running states that haven’t closed yet, all leading to extending the curve, rather than flattening it

Flattening the curve is extending the curve (that's the goal) - to give healthcare systems more time to respond, provide more respirators, beds, better testing, etc.. 

There are few if any reports that show fewer people getting infected (the virus is everywhere and will do what it's going to do regardless) Also little chance of a cure (no cures for Flu, Cancer, Heart disease, etc) - Corona will most likely be a part of life on earth, the question is how we manage it - I think testing is the answer and the extra time is helping with faster/better testing- test negative to leave the house but society must go on

Everyone is vulnerable.  Besides that since the federal government has basically told states to step up I don’t see the governors of NJ or NY opening things up until July at the earliest.  Federal government can do nothing about it.  Besides even if they do open things up who realistically wants to go to dinner, a movie, or even a sporting event until there is some type of vaccine? 

sadly IMO, there are clearly enough dopes in this country for that to be a serious issue.....

Agree but this worldwide Government reaction gives me pause since this might be the first time in a couple of thousand years of recorded history where Government (society) has valued human life over money...

Do they know something that we do not know? 

~6 million years of human evolution, why is this different? Darwinism no longer applies?

Are you are a Dr or medical scientist? You are probably wrong.

fwiw, i think he is saying its likely NOT gonna be like smallpox, eradicated.

So far, we’ve used vaccines to entirely wipe out two diseases: smallpox and rinderpest, which infects cattle.

We’ve also come extremely close to eradicating polio, with less than 500 new cases annually, largely in Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan.

In the United States, a long list of diseases have been nearly eradicated by vaccines: diphtheria, bacterial influenza, measles, mumps, rubella, and tetanus, among others.

Until there is an effective testing protocol in place and functioning - I couldn't agree more. Stay well dude!

I've seen this before. Not to talk religion but my grandmother passed away when I was just a kid she loved her Lord she prayed on her rosary beads until she could pray no longer (my only tattoo is of hands praying over rosary beads in memory of her). She always warned her family of two things. 1.) Social security card; she felt it was the 1st sign for the mark of the beast as a tracking device because without a social our governments will look at us as nothingness as if we're nothing and do not exist as humans and warned us us to never accept any type of chip into our body (my family never will, even if it means death) and 2.) The end of our days. She always told us there would become a time and day where we are to lock our doors, stay inside our homes and don't even so much as look outside of our windows because people who go outside would die by the hands of evilness within the world. And now look. School's are shut down. Churches are closed (preachers getting arrested for having gatherings), millions have lost jobs and as people we are warned to stay inside of our homes because people are dying outside. Dejavu. My grandma had a lot of faith, a lot of knowledge and a lot of wisdom and had the biggest most loving heart I've ever experienced every time she hugged me I knew she loved me and she always worried about the evilness of this world and what could happen to her family once she was no longer here. So she tried her best to prepare us to stick together throughout scary times and me being stuck working from home my daughter not allowed in school anymore and being locked inside of our home with my own family just gives me flashbacks to my grandmother's words as I feel like I've seen this story play out before and it's a scary feeling when I look into hospitals today and it looks like a human genocide with streets deserted of people and a virus killing us as the root.
