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.



Unless you traveled to an affected area there is a 99.9%+ chance it was not coronavirus. (I'm assuming you are in the USA). If it happened today it is somewhere between 95 and 99.9% chance it is not coronavirus. If you live in New Rochelle I'll change the odds.

But your point is valid. Hopefully millions will get it and react like you did.

Possibly even bigger than that, but I'm not qualified to speculate, and would hate to offer false hope.

I'm not in a position to be of much help, because things are challenging here, but if I can, PM me and tell me what I can do.

Meanwhile, where I work, we're having a St. Patrick's Day party.

How's that for social distancing?

Mandatory attendance?
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Technically, no. I can just sit in my office all day if I wanted to. So I'll probably just grab some food and do just that.

One of my great regrets is lack of a Guinness or two, particularly since a nearby "local" has a really generous spread of homemade corned beef and cabbage instead of the usual skimpy portions that bars usually serve. This year I guess its not even open.

Apparently it's so bad in Italy because
they have the 2nd oldest pop in the
world, almost 25% are over 65. Japan
has 28% and they have it under control.

The lifestyle of Millennials in Italy is
to have a job and live with grandma
and gramps, sponging off them so
they have no rent to pay and can live a
lifestyle way above their pay grade.
Partying and mingling with other
spongers 3-4 nights a week and taking
the virus home and killing their meal
tickets. Who could see that coming.

US has 16% over 65. Outside the minority
areas, not nearly as many Millennials
living with grandparents. They sponge
off their parents instead.

That's funny

I thought all the minorities we're getting pregnant and living off the government with section 8 housing while allowing their significant others to sponge off living secretly with them. Now they're living with their grandparents?

Can I get another answer longer than 4 words Yoda? A sucker is born every minute, ok. Your implication about that?



You are welcome to your opinion, but, I'm with Bill here. PT Barnum was great at diverting people's attention. Your attention seems diverted so far from the world I see, that the Barnum reference is timely. Timely as an observation only (not as a personal insult). So please help me. I don't understand what kind of proof you need to take the pandemic seriously?

Italy is in lock-down, and most of Europe is following. IIRC, China was on full lock-down for a while, too. Wait another week, and you may see this country going all-in on an American-style version of "National Shutdown."

Some WoV members -- including the WoO himself -- said this scare wouldn't shut the Las Vegas casinos. But, today: all shut down, right? It is very easy to catch the virus, and some casino staff already test positive. If we guess wrong about the pandemic, overwhelmed Las Vegas medical facilities might be doing C-virus triage in tents all summer.

Is this "media-scare vs real crisis" still a 50-50 proposition for you? Are there any facts to support such "balance" when faced with all that is happening?

Please take the pandemic seriously.
