Plus there is also a report that even if some people recover they could lose 20% of their lung capacity. This was only reported in China so far.



That's a low quality of life, I hope not. Man, I'd not want to live like that. Odds are I catch it or have already caught it and will be fine. I hope it's not me in denial. Kind of had a nagging cough the last week, yesterday was gasping for breath (unfortunately normal from time to time) and today I'm fine. Hope that was, is it.

And as week 2 starts the surreal feeling goes on. Fed cuts rate to 0%. I go to work and see enough cars that I know we are not being turned away at the door. But I do get ejected from the cafeteria as they close it to lingering, taking away the chairs. Most things are ordered closed, the last casino closes tomorrow morning. So there is little surprise in anything anymore.

You start to wonder if this is what it was like in the crackdown in Poland in the early 80s. Things being closed by order at breakneck speed even if it feels like everything is moving in slow motion. You know that things will return to normal, but when? Groceries are empty in parts, but the supply chain is still moving.

We will have something to tell the next generation.

I'm sorry, but despite what everyone else thinks I believe that this is overblown.

You're probably correct, but it doesn't matter what you think, it doesn't matter what I think(correct or not), it matters what the masses think and how they react. I'm reacting to how I believe they will react. I would like to get ahead of it just in case before The Snowball Effect really gets big. At this point, I think I've waited too long, I should have prepared two weeks ago. I couldn't find a freezer for sale in Las Vegas after calling about 20 different locations. Most of the places I went to, the canned goods were out. I don't want to have enough for Just 2 weeks and then have to go out and buy more.
I don't want to have to eat stuff I don't really like either. If it comes down to having to hunker down, I'm good with that(I welcome it), but, I want to be as comfortable as possible while eating and doing what I normally enjoy doing at home.

I understand trying to limit the overload to our medical systems. I think most of the things being done are good ideas for short term. However, there will be a reality check at some point...we CANNOT just shut down major global economies for 6 months or a year or 18 months if it continues to spread. This will cause a global depression that will also kill many people. The world still has to produce to survive. There will be a point where we will be forced to open up shop again regardless of the rate it's spreading. Also as a side note, remember that when there is a crisis going on governments tend to extend their reach quickly. Tread carefully.

There is some doubt about this being real. You see stories on the internet, about China, about some celebrities here and there, but no way to know for sure. People have mentioned it being all a show, "they are hiding something", people say, but, " i don't know what" is the response. There isn't much to see when you do a google search about the topic I've been able to find. There should be something like Alex Jones screaming about a one world order or something, if he is even around anymore. I don't like this social media censorship, it's up to the public to make up their own minds and not be told they're incapable of it. I'm not sure if I want this to be a hoax or not, not sure which would be worse.

PT Barnum was correct.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

About 3 weeks ago , before this whole thing had really blown up , I had a night where I had a high fever and chills and a runny nose. I just assumed it was the flu or some virus. The next morning I woke up feeling even worse. I rested all day. The morning after that i woke up feeling ok. Now Iím wondering if I had the coronavirus and got over it with just two days of symptoms. My symptoms do match how itís described as being.

It's possible, but that would mean you were exposed to it 4-6 weeks earlier though. A quick little google search allows for it to be possible on the timeline, but we didn't have anyone dying here then from COVID19. Sigh, probably not the case you had it already. There is some chance you can become reinfected even if you did, even by the same identical strain. Our bodies aren't well prepared to fight this, people google yourself. It's not what you heard or what you know, there might be exceptions to common sense on this one.
