USA taken the lead in the number of confirmed cases. NYC showing the way. If it was a country, it would be 6th.

But NYC has a low case mortality rate, meaning it's detecting a lot of mild cases. That's good because they are the people that spread it. NYC are actually doing well.

Washington State, Louisiana, Georgia and Michigan all have high case mortality rates. They are missing a lot of mild cases which are possibly spreading disease. They are heading for disaster.
Yeah they overtook China this morning. New York State 37,000. As you point out they would be below Germany and above Iran and France on the current count. 19m people in the state so it's the size of a country. Their mortality rate is below 1%.

Italy will be above China once the figures update.
People in charge of public health and testing have done well in NYC. Some of those other states are ****

Yes, in case you don’t have social media as a daily reminder of that...
I'm enjoying the tinfoil hat theories

Like the Chinese have deliberately spread it to ruin the world economy for world domination

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

We really are a special breed. We spend all our time on our phones now all of a sudden we have an urge to talk to others, complete tasks around the home and are bored not going to work.

Stay on your phones should be the message from the government, my head hurts at the stupidity going on atm.

Importance of social distancing and why you should stay at home and not go to Bunnings.

Indeed, we are in a precarious position moving into winter.

Seeing the fog this morning is cause for more concern with the spread of this virus.

Stay the **** at home unless you need to go to work or do the grocery shopping.

I have to say, the idea of social distnacing and working from home... it's like a **** dream for me before i had kids.

Im a home body, that **** would have been right up my ally. NO problems at all.
With kids though, absolute **** nightmare. Im working from home and juggling trying to be as productive as i can and home schooling a 6 year old in the advanced learning program, and a tempremental 4 year old just starting her structured learning "journey"

The teachers have been great, they've provided a lot of materials but this **** is tough.
I love my kids and i dont want to do this ****. I cant even imagine being a teacher and doing this **** for a class room of 20 kids who you've got no real skin in the game for :lol:

I found this a pretty funny read.:
https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/202 ... ting-time/

The tweet:
https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/sta ... 3395410957

Relevant comment:
1) You don't just start making thousands of complicated machines because you think someone might be ordering them soon. You wait until that someone (the government) says exactly what they want, how much they're going to pay for them, and how many they'll take. You know, something Trump refused to actually do for several weeks.

2) When Trump tweeted out his rant today, he @ the wrong GM. He was literally demanding some account created in 2007, with absolutely no tweets, start making ventilators.

3) He also demanded that GM use a plant that they had sold back in November.

4) He should have known about this plant, as he had tweeted his congratulations for GM selling it at the time.

No matter how many times you shake your head at what he does he just keeps on bringing it.

About to finish night shift.

Keeping eye on the figures in Italy, and it's another disastrous day, they have just ticked over 10000 deaths.

Their death rate is 45% when compared to total deaths/cases closed, absolutely tragic.

Get well Italy
