Covid19 How many in your state or country?

Recommended Posts

21176 total,

1265 dead,

13386 recovered.

These are reported figures which is bollix.

They ignored the nursing homes, others and are only now starting to include them.

Like everything else, the Irish have to do a pandemic....... arseways.

You're in the casket manufacturing industry?

 

Agriculture. You know. About 40 % of the land in the U.S.A. 

Farmers are planting, equipment is selling, people are working. There is no lockdown in agriculture.

It's essential...

That's not very nice...

 

And neither was your comment about caskets.  And that's not the only one you've made like that.   Some people like to dish it out, but they can't take it.  People have said really nasty things to me and others here and when we fight back you cry foul.  Toughen up.

Wtf is that mindless gibberish?

That is just typical of the conservative response. If you think there is something terribly wrong and desperately needs  fixing under a Republican administration, you're a quivering jellyfish with your marbles in your socks who needs gently talking down from the window ledge.

 

 

Oh, sorry, I thought you were looking for a safe space.  I agree it's mindless gibberish, but it ain't my mindless gibberish.

And I severely doubt, as a physician, you're squeamish about caskets. You've probably seen thousands of instances where it didn't work out on the operating table, and that was the next destination for the rapidly stiffening remains left sitting in front of you. Such is life. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, nothingness to nothingness. 

 

I'm not squeamish about much of anything.  I'm not offended by caskets.  I'm just pointing out that you are trying to be offensive whether you want to admit it or not.  You do it all the time.

It changes by the minute.  And the 24 hour news stations have it on 24 hours a day.

That is not a criticism of you. Some oncologist wrote "carcinomatosis" on my my mother's death certificate and began to gently explain what it means. I said, "I know exactly what it means, so don't patronize me, thank you for trying your best." He still looked vaguely insulted, but there you go. It's no different to a car mechanic saying "Transmission's knackered, scrap it." One can accept reality, albeit painfully.

I’m confused.  You seem genuinely concerned about the health and safety of the 300 lb. professor in your university department, and hope the college stays closed for awhile, so staff stays safe. But you compare your mother’s cancer death to a transmission going out.  I think nihilism  is a fair assessment.   Worse than a virus, in the long run - don’t you think?

I share my thoughts on this topic, I hope objectively and respectfully. I confess to being a resolute atheist, and, in my bleaker moments, a borderline nihilist, but I don't set out to offend those of a different perspective. The casket comment was my one cheap crack, hands in the air. I sincerely can't think of any others.

Truth be told, I wholly lack the intelligence, education, literacy, and wit to be genuinely offensive. I'm only borderline literate, I can only work with what I've got;  gimme a break, here, Doctor, please. Show some compassion, seriously... There's a good chap.

 

I believe there is no resolution to this, but I am glad you speak your minds and that we are not under a totalitarian form of control, yet.

You can always let the free market decide and not take handouts.

You can always pursue bankruptcy like your leaders encourage the states to do.

You can always quit selling to people with money that don't need socialist handouts from the nanny state government.

Go ahead.

I dare ya...

I've seen reports of increased domestic violence and child abuse, presumably due to people being cooped up together too much (which is really sad when you think about).  I wonder if there are more virtual fights o the internet too?

Those numbers sound like positive tests.  That doesn't really tell you how "fast it's spreading".  Right now across the country, testing capability is really ramping up.  Where I live, testing has been very restrictive.  Only for very high risk people.  In the last 10 days or so that's been opened up to nearly "anyone who wants one" can get a test.  So when you have an infection that causes so many asymptomatic and minimally symptomatic  cases the numbers of positive tests will go up by definition as you expand testing.   From what I can see (on worldometers) it looks like your daily deaths in PA are going down a lot.
