we are completely hosed in the US

i also find it hard to believe that china's cases have completely flatlined. what's going on over there?

things are still on a kinda semi-lockdown in most of the country and hubei is still totally quarantined. i dont know if thats actually stopping it or if they arent really testing new people unless they need urgent care or what though

I'm about to go home from work for the last time for at least a month

the last time I had to wfh for an extended period it was because of a terrible natural disaster, so this is actually somewhat less disruptive

this is also a natural disaster, op. the idea floating around that its an escaped engineered bioweapon is probably not true.

If you have any contrarians on your social media this is a good time to tell them to donate blood (or components)

I think it's weird cause blood centers are like the cleanest place I know and you're not allowed to be there if you're sick anyway.

its also not weird because everyones on edge and doesnt want to go out and do unnecessary things right now

I keep telling everyone who is saying "It isn't just the US, everywhere in the world is doing badly" that, in fact, China and South Korea are doing very well

cant speak for south corea but china isnt really "doing well" i dont think. i mean, maybe compared to the world of poo poo the us is starting to find itself in, but tens of millions of people are still on lockdown, everywhere else is heavily restricted, and the economy is clearly biting the big one here. walked down a street yesterday that used to have about i guess 12 or so restaurants that were always pretty busy. 8 were closed, boarded up, for rent signs in the window. 2 more were closed but looked like maybe they could reopen someday? and two were open with no customers. half our suppliers are either stuff not back yet or operating at 50% capacity. retail sales of our products are down over 50-70% yoy in east/southeast asia. i mean we make essentially luxury goods but its not a good sign.

lomarf if you believe any official news from china

i mean you don't have to believe it to get the basic idea here. theyre arent covering up uncontrolled viral pneumonia outbreaks and mass graves here in shenzhen. i'd have noticed it somehow. i promise i'll break the news here in this thread if something like that happens. and i personally know a half dozen or so people currently in various parts of mega quarantined hubei province. at this point any coverups are in the margins, not the general idea.

i work in a gossipy office with 950 employees, my girlfriend works in another company with a hundred or so, with all these people living scattered throughout the city each with their own families and friends etc. i really don't believe it would be possible to cover up a wuhan or northern italy level outbreak here without at least rumors of it that i'd be somewhat aware of

china has this authoritarian angle that we just donít

also imagine if : this continues to mutate so that catching this is like catching a cold in that you only get immunity to that strain but can get it again, the implication being that from now on itís just like influenza but easier to catch and just circulates the globe over and over and perhaps being old is just a thing of the past

time will tell but something wise I read made the claim that if weíre over precautions we wonít know* but if we arenít precautious enough it will be abundantly clear

*china and korea being very on the precautious end of the scale

i read on twitter today that most other coronaviruses only give you immunity for a couple months once you recover from them? lol if true.

I got some racism today for buying two jugs of water. I have always bought water from the market ever since my kitchen faucet poured out funky coloured smelly water once but I guess me being Asian during this pandemic gives people the right to comment about or question my purchases.
