ive encouraged my colleagues to spend some time on self-improvment. read some books, take an online course. Things that arent normally possible in a regular work-day because dumbasses keep walking up to you in your open office space and disturb you.

do that.

stocks did go up today, which is too bad because I meant to do my quarterly buy yesterday but forgot until this morning.

anyway hopefully just a week or two until the data show a clear case for ending lockdowns, but who knows how fast they'll lift after that

Main results. The actual number of infected cases in France is probably much higher than the observations: we find here a factor x15 (95%-CI: 4-33), which leads to a 5.2/1000 mortality rate (95%-CI: 1.5/1000-11.7/1000) at the end of the observation period. We find a R0 of 4.8, a high value which may be linked to the long viral shedding period of 20 days.

These guys got a fatality rate of 0.5%, which is still pretty high, but it's good to see more literature converging toward "this is much more transmissible and much less deadly than we first thought".

bc Italy has been at it for a few weeks longer, you'll get there in a few weeks too

in france the rules are getting enforced more and more severely too

like the fine for not having your "here's why I am outside" form increased, and now they have started arresting repeat offenders

CWFHS: Doing it for literally the first time ever, enjoying it so far. Despite my company repeatedly getting caught with its trousers down every step of the way through the government restrictions, now we're finally home everything works fine.

Not sure I'll still have a job at the end of all of this, but at least I might get a sweet chair out of this.

they're also on amazon, if they're still delivering nonessential items

I agree - what are the required skills for your job? Are you top notch in all of them? Are they ones that you can take an online course for? A lot of places like Udemy, Coursera, Lynda, etc. are having sales right now because people are at home.

also looking at every virus graph shoot up on an exponential curve is not good either

however, take it one day at a time and remember smart german doc who said that significant results come in on wednesdays due to weekend backlog and mon-tue spent on catching up

Herman Miller does an annual sale around this time for 15% off. It's still freakishly expensive though

like this will pass, if you watch the news it is bad but we all knew it was going to be bad so why freak out even more? it doesn't help anything to pull your own hair out, just stay inside and wash your hands and do what the officials say, it is all you can do, this is outside of your control like the weather
