You know, there's when you and I recover, and then there's when the INVESTMENTS You and I have recover. There might be disparity.

I'm not retiring for about 20 years so I hope it's before then.

Italy has had two days in a row now of not only declining deaths, but also new cases.

how do they know there are no new cases? That would be reported cases correct? Certainly there can't be NO new cases, I would think?

No doubt, that's obviously a good sign.

He apologized for that comment today. Manned up. Said that was a feeling he had and was not supported by the experts.

I put July 1. Viruses tend to not do well in the late spring / summer which is good for people. Some drugs are showing some limited success in treatment. China is sort of back to approaching normal already. The death rate seems to be lower per case than in other parts of the world due to our robust health care system. Would I be stunned if it was June 1? Yes I would. Would I be stunned if it is August ? Nope. But after September 1? Yes.

,



The number of deaths reported in many states exceeds the number of people who are classified as recovered. I'm not sure what to make of that.

One cable network is proclaiming the anti-malaria drug as a game changer and another is reporting three people died overnite from overdosing on it. Some talking head from France says the difference between an effective dose and a lethal one is minute.
I imagine a 130 pound person will need a different dose than a 78 pound one or a 250 pounder.

Yes, the number of reported/confirmed cases has been declining the last couple of days. I have no idea how that corresponds to the actual number of tests being done, though.

Doing a little test on hotels.com

You cannot book an AC casino hotel room for any date before Friday April 3rd. If you try you get a grey colored box that says rooms at that location are unavailable to book.

April 3rd you can book rooms like normal

So any opinions on AC being open by April 3rd.

I believe that was the original order for the shutdown with the caveat that it would be reevaluated as we get closer

I just saw a hotels.com ad on TV yesterday where they encouraged everyone to "just stay home."

I had no problem finding rooms available in AC on kayak. Lodging is absolutely essential. Truck drivers are among the most critical operations right now and they need places to stay. Pipes can burst and homes can become unlivable. Homeless who still have $50 should not be forced back on to the streets.

Specifically hotels connected to casinos just to be clear

Yes there are rooms in ac but not at the nine casino properties

My guess is the April 3 date has no meaning at all. They have no idea when they’ll reopen. Maybe they just left the first weekend in April available in case.

The curve in NJ is only getting steeper
