Anyone have any thoughts on reopening the country? When you think that this all started in America with just one person and now we will be starting with at least 30,000 people, even if we made a huge effort with aggressive testing and contact tracking it looks like it will be an endless cycle of shut downs. I'm going to have to go with the July 4th, 2021 when a vaccine finally becomes available.

If we reopen May 1st, we will see about 100,000 dead from the virus. If we stay closed until June 1st, we will see about 60,000.
To me, that's not an acceptable trade. Hopefully,someone will be able to convince our leaders.

There is a drug that may be coming soon. I'm talking weeks

Waiting for the update on clinical trials

Not anything spoken at this forum. I will probably create a thread for it.

Seems promising to the point of us being able to reopen without fear of dying

You talking about the vaccine developed at University of Pitt? Or a treatment drug?

Thanks. I was looking for that

That thread became a bit political. I'm not sure if I want to just start a dedicated thread

I guess the mods probably prefer me just to add to that one.

Maybe they can chime in

Again I am waiting for a new article about recent results. If it's as promising as it looks it deserves it own thread imho

I read an interview years ago with the main proponent of Y2K. He claimed everyone blames him for a mass hysteria over something that never happened



Here is Time Magazine's 20-year appreciation.
Quote: Y2K -- 20 Years On...

20 Years Later, the Y2K Bug Seems Like a JokeóBecause Those Behind the Scenes Took It Seriously



I was very involved with Florida's Y2K preparations. As all the executive agencies were scrambling, someone asked whether anyone knew if the Judiciary was onto Y2K or not. It wasn't. Worse, Y2K for Florida's judicial system was 6 months earlier (1-Jul-1999) because the whole judicial system depended on its ability to schedule court dates 6 months out.

Florida almost broke its judicial system because people charged with a crime in Florida can demand a "speedy" trial. If the court cannot put those folk in front of a jury by a date certain (in statute), then the case is a nol-pros (administratively dismissed). Murderers could have gotten away scott free because of a computer date problem.

Actually it is a very acceptable trade when you are talking another $1 trillion in cost, and probably more.

Then add in it seems if you die from it you probably had less than a year left in any case.

Treatment drug



There's suppose to be some 60 drugs they are looking at. Other than a year from now if there is a vaccine, it shouldn't be much more than 2 months before we hear something more definite about most of them.
