Because of the magnitude of the issue we're facing, I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, but if they think they will make this a regular practice, then people will start dying of lead poisoning because I won't play their games. I'll see what they do as far as enacting laws before I get too bent out of shape over it..

Crazy world we live in.
That's the shame, she is self-isolating and the apartment managers are on the warpath. Weren't forced evictions halted by Judge Jenkins in Dallas County (assuming this in Dallas County) for 2 months or so?

Here and there... sometimes. There are times that they view some things to be more of a pain than they're worth. Also if you look closely, sometimes technology will dry them up. It has happened that something comes along and makes a lot of government employees and offices obsolete. And really, the less of them around, the better. Any reduction in their numbers is a good thing for us. But I agree it's definitely uncommon.

IMO, the reaction is an overreaction. All the panic and hysteria. My $0.02.

It may not be as contagious as we thought. My home town was Springtown and the JOP got corona and it's been about 2 weeks. He is doing better and his wife that has been taking care of him has not showed 1 sign or symptom. she just got her test back and it was negative.

While that is great news and I am happy for them both..given the explosive spread and body count in multiple cities on both coasts I would hardly predict that based on one case. I hope you're right.

There are reports that there maybe multiple strains of this covid-19. Who knows what the hell is going on. There is so much fake news out there.

The CDC is full of self-important people running around doing self important things that benefit no one but themselves. It's budget needs to be cut down massively, Personnel whittled away, and they need to stick to their actual core function. We all know that will never happen.

I read there are 4 known strains, but it was MSM, so who knows if they just pulled a number out of their ass like they do for polls.

IMO it depends how seriously people take this stay in place stay safe requirements. If people follow the rules then we can at least in this state and area keep it contained. The death rate is all over the place, young people are dying, old people are dying, some people are showing no signs and symptoms and some are sick for days. Until we get a medicine like Tamaflu for the flu or a vaccine this will be around for awhile.

I guess the bright side is they could always lift it early.

I was talking with friends about this to some extent. If we dont have quite a few deaths people will never trust this shit again...at least not for a generation. The exact number I dont know...but if only 50K people die then it literally will only be seen as lethal as the flu. Obviously social distancing measures worked...but not many people will give them much credit. We created 10 million unemployed people on 2weeks for this...trillions of dollars in losses...and generational economic damages.

People will quickly lose faith in the "science" if there isnt a real health hit and start ignoring orders.

Oh I suspect the opposite could happen too. Imagine all the idiots wanting to give even more power to the gov’t for saving all those lives.
