      I am curious why people talk so much about the availability of vaccine but not the medicine? At this stage, a curing medicine is more important than a vaccine. Are the media steeling us to something?

      @Nephron z 1: It won't. 2: You'll be taking the shot(s) in September... 2021... at the earliest. Unless, of course, they REALLY REALLY rush it, in which case, you might as well have one of the experimental ones right now, because there's absolutely no guarantee it won't kill or cripple you, or even work at all. Worst case scenario: rushed vaccine proves worse than the disease, giving the anti-vaxxers a shred of truth to stand on. A generation later, a measles pandemic kills half the kids on Earth.

      Hi Derrick, I would like to ask, 1. why has the world's best health services failed with relate to Covid-19 even though some countries still have more than sufficient ICU units available(eg. Germany, Swiss)? 2. The general hypothesis in Italy for most aged people falls negative as Japan has the most aged population (Statistically) than Italy and lies in close proximity to China (hence trade + movement of people). What do you think, what Japan has done but not Europe.? Thank you very much

      Why extensive testing is not used but only people with travel abroad history or that have been in contact with somebody who has tested positive are being testet. I know cases of people with fever, cough, diarrhea and muscle pains who were told just to stay at home and nobody came to test them. Are they just testing the tip of the iceberg and leaving all the others?

    My wife is a 5 Star Chef. Working at home is not an option. She has been laid off her job. Unlike S.Korea we in the US are waiting to test After you get real sick and After you have infected All your Family +Friends + Strangers. REAL SMART! What a money saving idea...NO!

    Ebola killed way more people with coffins everywhere, than Corona virus has done so far. Yet, ebola never shutdown or lockdown anything. Why is it that when something happens in the west all of a sudden it a global pandemic. This is an agenda to take people's rights away. This is where its going.

    If this actually becomes a thing then i think the way houses are build should change too, build local communities with stores and other amenities for local groups instead of going to the bus to go to a mall or something.. And encourage more cycling then driving since distances are relatively close you don't need a car, these things are very normal here in The Netherlands.

    90 push ups first thing when I get out of bed then 30 or more on the hour and pulls and crunches throughout the day I try to do more everyday; it seems to keep me focused, 260 today. I completely hope I am able to keep working from home, no more two hours commuting daily, or spending 8 hour in a dungeon of an office. Instead, I've my homey pleasent environment, good music, zoom when I need to colaborate; stricktly, as work is concerned, I love it... while the job lasts. -There is reality, you know, the CCP-apocalypes -economic and the countless surffering. Yeah, so as long as I stay away from the news, I can work in happy ignorance...

    How to deal with Cabin Fever: With: 5.7/10 IMDB, 56%MC & 62%RT, 75% of the amateur critics gave a thumbs up. Looking positive? Do please heed this warning! What, at first glance, seems to be 1.34h of regular, mildly dated, Horror/Comedy entertainment and easily assumed to be a nice home office watch; the overarching theme of this story might be a very bad choice due the current pandemic. This, as a group of school friends rent a cabin in the woods and kill an ailing man, whose disease spreads among them. Forcing them to take drastic measures to survive! Given the latter, watching this movie could lead to many people taking much to drastic measures against the Covid19 crisis! Better keep the entertainment in the safer regions, like Shrek; as Shrek is Love, Shrek is Life! Finally, for all that experience (to a certain degree) "issues with authority", during regular lunch hours, there is a graphical curve that can be increased even further, as was presented in the latest figures from a certain hub (online). Extra word of caution when increasing the before mentioned curve, ensure you pause/mute/turn off any virtual meeting-room software! No matter what, stay safe and healthy and when the walls truly are coming at you, kind but firmly, remind them we really should take 2 meters distance from each other!

    PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE. Coronavirus does not move; it cannot come to infect you. People move and the virus move with them. Stop moving and stay put and the virus stop moving and stop spreading. Do not go out to get the bug or give thd bug to others
