Re: First US State Lockdown

The Governor says more than half of all Californians could, eventually, be infected with the Coronavirus. He says 56% of people living in the state will get it, which would be more than 20-million people. Wuhan has what, 12 million people? How come 6 million of them do not have this? What makes peo...

Deaths in Italy exceed deaths in China.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say, probably not true. But the Chinese government tells you it is.

Re: Dallas Ordering New Tough Restrictions

Maybe change the thread title to Texas from Dallas. https://www.kwtx.com/content/news/Texas-governor-orders-restaurants-schools-public-venues-closed-568932451.html He's issuing an executive order directing schools to close, banning gatherings of 10 or more people and ordering restaurants to limit op...

I calculated the US.
115 current deaths out of 6,508 cases puts it currently at 1.76%.

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

What lady in what press conference? The WHO currently is estimating a case fatality rate of 3.4% but that may turn out to be high. Their initial estimate was 2%. The current CFR in the US is about 1.8% but we just aren't testing enough yet to know for sure. Dr. at White House press conference. She ...

Re: Rights vs Responsibilities

Prior to Covid-19 people with the flu, TB, HIV, meningitis, hepatitis etc run around with the ability to spread it to those they interact with yet their movement is not restricted by the government. I see this in the same way but you’re in the medical field so you may see it differently. This is ju...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

For comparison, between Oct. 1, 2019 and March 7, 2020, the US had between 36,000,000 and 51,000,000 cases of the flu, 17,000,000 to 24,000,000 of which required medical visits, 370,000 to 670,000 of which required hospitalizations, and between 22,000 and 55,000 deaths caused by the flu.

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

I don't believe China intentionally released this thing but I 100% know they had an escape from their Wuhan facility. One would have to be deaf, blind and dumb not to realize it. Yes, I don't believe they intentionally released it. They wouldn't have released it if they didn't have a cure, that doe...

Re: Dallas Ordering New Tough Restrictions

Waco just announced the same restrictions. I won't be surprised when Gatesville and or Coryell county does the same. Seems all of government is the same no matter what level.

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

I don't know if this has been posted or not. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/preliminary-in-season-estimates.htm US Numbers In 6 months this flu season - 36,000,000-51,000,000 people have caught the flu. (6 million to 8.5 million per month) 370,000 - 670,000 hospital stays (roughly 60,000 to 11...

Re: Rights vs Responsibilities

If you think the government has any interest in the least bit of your health and safety, my friend I would look up the definition of naive. With that being said, I agree with other members that we should be using our ability to think for ourselves and make rational decisions, not giving in to the m...

Re: Rights vs Responsibilities

What concerns me more are the big steps being taken that implement socialism. Companies forced to provide services, wages guaranteed, unilateral control given to governors and mayors... and the Republicans are going right along with it and pouring cash on top to boot. Congress shall make no law resp...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

And finally for those who say that this is just something that happens to old people, starting yesterday the hospitals are reporting that younger and younger patients – 40, 45, 18, are coming in for treatment. That part of it got my attention. The media is still saying only old goats are at risk of...
