Yeah, I don't notice anything either.

Time for me to chime in I guess.   1- I am not dead, as apparently some of you have theorised.   2- Things are....pretty dire over here. 546 dead according to the latest numbers, a

The elderly are the most at risk and a certain composer related to this website's creation living in one of the most populous cities in the US certainly falls in to the category.

We must not even think of Ennio Morricone!:(

I hope NYC will be the place for the final battle of this current pandemic. Because, I'm telling you, economically and socially, this can't last for that much longer. We'll be facing a far worse crisis, an economic one, if people are forced to remain quarantined for more time. And it's not the billionaires and Wall Street boys that will loose money, it'll be the employees of their companies, blue collar workers that will be without their jobs. 

 

WHO needs to take this into account when insisting for lockdowns.

CDs are for boomers. I'm all digital, baby. When I'm gone, my music's gone. As it should be.

 

After I'm gone, my CDs and vinyl records will make some future hipster happy.

 

 

 

 

(Yes, by that time CDs will be rediscovered)

I fear it's too late now to think about a containment strategy that will work in avoiding severe lockdown measures all over the world. The virus is spreading everywhere and won't be securely stopped until we have a vaccine or at least an effective therapeutic. The big issue now is the global health emergency, hospitals around the world are already under enormous pressure to cure an unprecedented number of cases (especially those in dense populated areas, like big cities) and the strain they're facing is almost unbearable.

 

We're entering uncharted territory, where we have to live on a day-by-day basis for several months and the economy will have to follow suit. I'm more and more convinced every day since this emergency started that life as we knew it is very likely over and we'll have to adjust and adapt to a new mindset for the future. I think human kind has all the resources to get out of this emergency, but let's not pat ourselves on the back and think this will be over in a couple of months and everything will go back as it was.

Statisticians on Jeremy Vine's radio show now saying that if UK keep following the lockdown guidelines in place that deaths *could* be as low as 5000 here, which would obviously be a big swerve around the impending disaster heading this way for Easter.

I might say that the way the German government (and probably many others) handled the thing should make you rightfully scared about bureaucrats managing anything except their backyard.

 

I'm quite worried about what will become of the EU at this point. It seems this thing is shaking the fundaments of the (already frail and often hypocrite) solidarity and common view among European states. There's no common strategy, but we can get out of this thing only with a shared effort.

Well, seen from here Germany looks like it's handling the crisis very well: far fewer dead so far, and enough beds and ventilators that you can even afford to take in some of the ills from France or Italy...

The current explanations for the wide mortality gap in Europe:

- more age groups under one roof in Italy, Spain etc., more cross-infections from young to old

- resilient germs in hospitals, so once a critically ill, often multi-morbid, person is treated there, it's likely they croak > obviously a lot of patients in Germany are intercepted by doctor's offices and treated without actually getting into hospitals

- all kinds of side effects like bad lungs in northern Italy due to massive industrialization etc.

 

And here in Germany, doctor's are complaining like mad that there are almost zero precautions for their own well-being (not enough masks etc.) and they become super spreaders. Just imagine one dentist or pulmonologist having 12 patients per day...what are the odds without a mask or protective suit? The government obviously downsized all the health departments after the last crisis and now they begin to wonder if it was a good idea.

Apparently, Ischgl in Tyol and the Jaws style (initial non-)handling of the crisis there might be a factor as well: A significant number of cases in Germany and Scandinavia can be traced back to Austrian skiing resorts, which have a comparatively younger demographic, meaning that at least the initial spread in Austria and these other countries was among younger people, who additionally were on holiday and thus not in direct contact with their older relatives.

Did your country just do this? The whole of the UK just participated in a "Clap for Our Carers" event tonight at 8pm, organised by a Dutch lady called Annemarie Plas.

I think they want to reduce CO2 emissions, not people.

 

In order to achieve that, you'd need fewer people on the planet. Or at least significantly fewer people participating in the economy. Genicidal eugenicists have quacked on about this for decades.

In my town, people clapped for the street sweepers, that are out there cleaning the streets while the rest of us remain locked inside.

Memo to Alex: world population is 7.8 billion people. Please make a news alert for every sickness- or disease related death and inform us daily.


Yeah. Covid-19 is just the flu. Not even worse than the flu. Publicist has the right idea here.

This outbreak should have been covered up to avoid the mass panic and business closures. Instead, the media-driven fear porn hysteria and government response has led to an unprecedented economic collapse, with millions of people now on the dole, livelihoods destroyed, and we're now at the advent of a brutal police state monitoring and scrutinising our every move with phone tracking, aerial drones detecting telltale sickness behaviours, and fines for breaking curfew (expect mass arrests for other trivial offenses like mowing your lawn or hanging out your laundry) – just so grandma doesn't cark it?

 

There's a darker, more sinister agenda at work here, and it's endgoal is to reformat society into a state of fear and compliance, where neighbours snitch on one-another, property is seized, "infecteds" will be barcoded, and riot squads rule the streets. Mass executions might even be deemed necessary to eradicate political dissenters.

 

Climate Change failed at sparking this level of panic or enabling the form of government control that the psycho elites have coveted for so long. Only hippies and eggheads fell for that scam. But a virus, that did the trick.

The porn hysteria has indeed become tiresome. I gave up to entering Twitter, that place has become just to depressing, it's just panic, horror, fear, anxiety, despair... "Lots and lots of people have died due to pandemic, and it's just the beginning, trillions of people in the entire universe are going to die!"

 

Oh, come on, just stay home and stop whining! Gosh, the apocalypse should've happened before social media, that way we wouldn't have to suffer to other people's fearmongering.

 

And TV is not that different, every news report about coronavirus these days is like this:
