US suddenly has more cases than any other country.

I half way trust our numbers.

Do we really think China has only had 200 new cases in the last two weeks?

If so was this really a biological weapon and they have an antidote?

One of our two active aircraft carriers now has it right now.

Gov. Abbott issues self quarantine for airline travelers from New York, CT, NJ and New Orleans.

If you drive here your ok.

CDC stumbling in communication with state health agencies early on. Lost people with the virus.

It seems some recent research of the virus's RNA indicates that it was a natural mutation, not engineered. The researchers went into it with the hypothesis that it could be artificial, so it looks like a reasonable study. https://www.sciencenews.org/article/cor ... sis-nature

The numbers reported by China, now or in the past? Nope. I call pure hokum.

The increased infected count does wonders to lower the fatality percentages. Although gaming the counts would be unheard of. :roll:

BBC doesn’t want me to link their stories.

Mexicans protest visitors from the North. Want border closed.

US surpasses China.

Closes its borders to foreigners.

US media doesn’t object and thinks it’s a reasonable defense of their borders ( I made that last part up )

I was at a customers home this morning that ask me to put on rubber golves and a mask to come inside. My first thought was that they were sick in that house. Yeah, sometimes I am naive. He was worried about me. I told him I could just stay outside since most of the work was on their outdoor unit. He has a kid with some health issues and he said they have not left the house in 4 weeks.

So I go and tell him I am in the school of thought that this thing is blown out of proportion. He kind of flips out. LOL... well he has a brother who is a Dr in Chicago and his brother tells him it is FAR WORSE than we are being told. he had all kinds of nightmare stories of Chicago cornhole virus.His brother told him they are even talking of not trying to save people who are at deaths door. Pretty crazy to hear his whole aspect of this thing. It did make me think a bit.
Something NOT right about what you were told by the man at that house. I work "swing shift", so yes, I'm up at 0200 (2 AM for the non-military folks). I just took this set of stats from a "coronavirus dashboard" that is constantly being updated.

Illinois -- 2,538 (confirmed cases), 26 (deaths)

Either someone lied to that man, or he lied to you...or there was a whole lot of rumor-mongering going on before the story got to him.

Now, New York City and the surrounding area, yeah, that's bad!

I think he has been terrorized by MSM, to be honest. Who knows if he exaggerated or if his brother did? IMHO, this whole deal is blown out of shape. There are stories of refrigeration trucks outside NEW York hospitals to hold the dead but the number of deaths in New York don't really add up to such a need. New York Governor was on TV a little while back crying that New York needed 40 billion dollars! That is OUR money these greedy leftists are after. New York brought this thing on itself. Their officials were actually on the media telling people to go out and mingle in Feb. Now they are crying that President Trump somehow failed them. Disgusting!

One thing is for certain. This man was scared out of his mind with this stuff. We have to go back tomorrow and do a repair on his outdoor unit. His main worry was that we would have to come inside his home. LOL... we don't so he will be able to forgo fumigating.

OH, yeah, I am up at 2:40 AM. So I understand.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson tests positive.

Hindsight is 2020, but Trump should have had Pense in quarantine from day one. Everyone understands how important it is for him to be healthy. The unthinkable seems much closer to reality now.

Shoot! We should have tried to sneak a change in presidential succession into the $2.2 trillion stimulus bill. We need to shove Nancy Pelosi down from #2 to at least #8, which would put her after William Barr.

Thomas Massie's (R-KY) motion for roll-call vote overturned. Stimulus bill passes the House. On its way to President Trump.

I have been quarantined with my wife now for two weeks. Multiple choice-
Nine months from now:
A: My wife will have another baby
B: I will be on death row
C: both A and B
Best advice I was ever given- Don't mess with the dog while he's eatin'.
