Stupid bitch.

Sadly, while most people are not her, I'm still seeing and hearing a lot of people with such cavalier attitudes. It's asinine. IT COSTS NOTHNG TO FOLLOW THESE BASIC GUIDELINES.

Possibly for the good news thread, the local paper in Milwaukee reported earlier this week that all Wisconsin's TP manufacturers are operating at full speed.  And we have a lot of them. I also imagine that this is the case with every other TP factory everywhere.

Also on the local front:  there's been a run on absentee ballots (Go print some more!  Yea democracy!), Go Fund Me's and such are stepping up for restaurant & bar workers, and grocery stores are hiring.  And stores that were caught by surprise by the hoarders have been implementing inventory controls and purchase limits.  Hopefully we won't need to introduce WWII style rationing.

There's gonna be some loser punks out there, but hopefully the good will outweigh the bad.

Over the course of the last week we have developed and implemented a rather extensive policy and procedure for the separation of employees. It includes no more than six people in the break room at a time, one shift can't commingle with the other shift. We are using separate parking lots. Only so many at the time clock at a time. There are areas marked off signifying 6-foot intervals for walking and standing where there are groups such as meetings. We have established a perimeter that truckers must remain in as to decrease the influx of people into the plants. So, today I witnessed one of the women that works in the shipping department come out walk into the shipping area walk right up to one of the truckers, throw her arms around him and give him a big hug. She has no clue why three people said something and she's pissed at all of us. Yes, us. She says that she's not taking this virus thing seriously she's hugging all her church people and she doesn't see what the big deal is all about. Sweet Jesus.

the lord will save her.... ;)

A write-up in her HR folder and a 2 week suspension would go a long way to stop her and others from doing it again (and legal under the terms of employment vis a vis disobeying company policy.

Sadly, would not doubt it could be a factor.  Lots of reports about the dangers of 5G, and it was implemented in spite of them.

This is depressing; stuck at home and reading this.

How the Pandemic Will End
The U.S. may end up with the worst COVID-19 outbreak in the industrialized world.


Quote
A recent analysis from the University of Pennsylvania estimated that even if social-distancing measures can reduce infection rates by 95 percent, 960,000 Americans will still need intensive care.

...if Americans adhere to social distancing, if testing can be rolled out, and if enough masks can be produced, there is a chance that the country can still avert the worst predictions about COVID-19, and at least temporarily bring the pandemic under control.

Possible, but "worst" must be determined by per capita outcomes.  NYC has more people than many nations.  As a country, the USA may fare better than most others.

No it won't. Witness: florida

And this country takes its "freedom" to extremes. I mean, people are balking at the shut down orders and our own whackjob leader doesn't want a bad economy on his watch, so he's making noise about urging people back to work.

Once again, when that office speaks, regardless of the idiot occupying it, things happen, things move, things react.

The president says people should go back to work, and asshats start reopening their doors.

The president says "good people, many sides, all side" and neo-nazis come out of the woodwork.

That office carries gravitas. The nutjob occupying it has to respect that power. This idiot du jour not only doesn't respect it, he flouts that responsibility with utter impunity and with abandon.

Good job, US Voters. Good job.

It's a shame the person responsible for this will get out alive. I know we can't post politics here (unless it's not US politics).

You are a tolerant person, Papa.  (Did I really just post that; I take it back.)

I did not mean to start a political discussion.   Though it's kinda hard to avoid.

Kinda ironic how China how has now closed its borders to people traveling from the Western World.

I've been watching the lack of preparation and leadership in the US with horror.

Me too. 

It is like having already seen a scary movie so you know the ending, and now you're watching your friends watch the same movie, completely unprepared for the shit storm that is about to hit them.

We screwed up in the UK. We knew it was coming in January and we ............... did nothing and wasted February.

Eat more Pangolins. You know it makes sense.

NO POLITICS, please

We can discuss COVID-19 without dragging in political names or parties.  :thumbsup:

This is depressing; stuck at home and reading this.

How the Pandemic Will End
The U.S. may end up with the worst COVID-19 outbreak in the industrialized world.

Possible, but "worst" must be determined by per capita outcomes.  NYC has more people than many nations.  As a country, the USA may fare better than most others.

Not given the path we're on.   Here's a really nice video on exponential growth, by the way:

A somewhat technical piece explaining how COVID-19 jumped the species barrier and attacks humans that is written in layman's terms.  Totally non-political; I promise.
