The Next Pandemic: SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19

I ask again. Why even lock it all down in the first place then? And what models? The ones that we have based on SD? 

Nukes. Why have them then?

Locking down was a "retreat" method meant to gather information and data on the extent of the virus, which we were sorely lacking, while also trying to keep the hospitals from becoming overwhelmed (which was fairly successful). Nobody, from Cuomo to trump and everyone ideologically in between in a position of leadership, meant for a shutdown until vaccine.

Hello everyone, and I had the opportunity to visit Cassandra at Buffalo Children's today. As mentioned she is off the Ecmo machine and doing most of the work. It will take some time for her to heal. S

I have stayed away from this forum for a long time, and most know my politics...tonight was important for our country. Trump was up to it so far. Fantastic job.

And that’s my concern. Once we open it all up again they will be overwhelmed. Oh well. It is what it is. No easy answers here.

Awesome. I’m so happy to have a real estate tycoon as President. 

You're aware that this has been signed off on by the doctors, some of whom don't like trump, right?

This seems to be a "thread the needle plan" in darned if you do and darned if you don’t situation.

 

It gives time for more testing and scaled responses and give some space to minimize any rebounds.

 

For the “data driven” critics, it reflects the realities on the ground...states and areas least affected can move ahead.

 

For the states areas most impacted, they need to go slower while therapeutics, med resources, and supplies focus there.

 

There will be an inherent pressure in most areas to “get going”...states and cities that appear to be going too slow and dragging their feet will stick out like sore thumbs.

 

There will be more responses from regular folks like in Michigan when it appears there is no valid reason for not opening up.

 

Given his personality, it would be likely President Trump would highlight any area that appears to be lagging.

I’m not arguing. I wasn’t being sarcastic. I accept it. It is what it is. Like I said before I don’t have the answers and hopefully I’m way off that this thing spreads even worse the second time.

I was giving you a smart-ass reaction, but changed it because that really was good of you to say that @plenzmd1

I hope you're right too - but the way they're talking about monitoring this thing over the next indefinite period of time, they will be able to selectively ***** down what they need to, in all likelihood, smoother than this first time.

 

We are a lot better at this stuff than we were in 1919.

Right on cue, Trump just swatted down “New Normal” question.


“No, it’ll be NORMAL!”

 

 

 

He just refused to tell us not to protest

People have had it and hopefully the Covid19 flu will burn itself out soon (4-6 weeks)

Be safe. Be smart. That’s all I can say. Keep your hands to yourselves and avoid crowds. That’s all we can do at this point. 

 

You gotta say it like the Georgia Satellites

Not if people adopt smart and safe practices.  And protect yourself first, don't expect others to protect themselves from you.

The governors will decide. That’s been the plan for a week.

 

POTUS said “many” states are ready to open, but he will let the governors announce it.
