Does anyone plan on being in a casino within the first 24 hours of them opening?
A friend works as mid-management for a business on The Linq and he says Caesars has sent letters telling business's they will be in violation of their leases if they don't open within 24 hours of the casinos re-opening.



Depends on the mood I am in and the day of the week.

I expect we will have herd immunity in a year, vaccine or no vaccine. To me, that's likely the final time frame no matter what, short of another virus being unleashed on us.



Herd Immunity would be better than a vaccine with the later's unavoidable side effects. A new virus will be unleashed eventually. History shows it. Hopefully a more balanced reaction next time.

This little bit was added to the Treasure Island website (and local news stations are reporting it):

COVID-19 FAQ
By order of Nevada Governor's office, Treasure Island - TI is currently closed, and will reopen on May 15, 2020 (subject to change).

ETA
Circus Circus also has the same comment on their site:

There's a story on the back burners saying that, although smokers fair poorly if hospitalized by Covid-19, they are far less likely to be hospitalized by it in the first place. Naturally this has caused a huge uproar.

If it's true, however, I think only smokers should be allowed in casinos for the first week or two after they reopen. Then once the smokers have made the gaming area's atmosphere sufficiently toxic with second hand smoke should the nonsmokers be allowed in to breath safe air.

Full Story at TechStartUps


Hmm... It appears the observation in several countries that smokers are far less likely to contract coronavirus is picking up steam and being tested in France. Will nicotine patches become harder to get than toilet paper? Strange days.

Let's see, is it worth possibly getting hooked on nicotine patches? Geez. I gave up cigs years ago.

Did any of these smoking studies consider reduced lung function of smokers? It seems to me that if someone isn't breathing deeply or normally or has lung function disturbed by smoking they may not be inhaling enough pathogens to take hold.

Anyway, that's my non medical based question. I never went beyond biology 101 in college. But I did play several varsity sports and the coaches always said smokers didn't take in as much oxygen... and maybe they don't take in as much Covid -19 either?

Did these same coaches say that sex weakened the legs?

This would be the nefarious plan if there was one. Some call these kinds of things pretext, where people become taught to expect and have a reaction. Next thing you know, 3 years from now, another outbreak, but there is a vaccine or medicine right away. This would be the evil plan to sterilize or eliminate the rest of the world. Of course I have speculated before I believe in time, there will be enough power to do it manually if desired by drones. Funny how some countries are more accepting of a lockdown than others, just read something which said Canadian support was unanimous, don't think the US is unanimous.
