Went into WalMart last night and the self-checkout line machine accepted cash again, but another store was still going with the coin shortage and wanting electronic payments only. Toilet paper was being rationed at a different store to one package per person.

I thought we were well beyond the toilet paper shortage thing?

In contact with my relatives in Taiwan. No new cases in Over 200 days. Life is normal there.



If I recall correctly, Taiwan implemented a centralized national health system a decade or two ago. It connected everything to everything. The administrative overhead for the entire system was about 2 percent. I imagine this helped with timely contact tracing and follow-up (a big US problem). But, no doubt, Taiwan nailed the C-virus.

My position is either shut down all the way or none at all, not withstanding essential services.

This we agree on. We(all countries with it) should have started with that to begin with. We have had time to prepare for a full on shut down with very limited essential services and come up with aa plan but they don't want to go that route. Instead, we will just play silly shutdowns forever, as if that really does much.

I think we can all agree that shutting down was a bad mistake.

I don't think that.

NYS shutdown and cases, deaths dropped precipitously. The shutdown saved many lives.

The NYS shutdown was done properly.

We can all agree a botched shutdown is a bad idea
