    Re: Covid-19

    Just heard a doctor say because of the lack of testing the total cases are closer to 20,000 vs 546.

      Didn't he say last week the number would be closer to zero this week?

      But not testing does tend to keep the reported numbers down.

      Every doctor keeps asking our president how he knows so much about all of this, so I'm not worried. We have the vice-president in charge who doesn't believe in science and our president who thinks it's OK to look at the sun during a solar eclipse. Nothing to be concerned about.

            The fact Trump believes and says the virus will be completely contained within a week suggests just how dangerously ignorant he is.

            The NIH is saying we can expect 96,000,000 infections within the next two months (USA).

              I don't think Trump is completely wrong in that I do believe it has to some extent been politicized to use against him but that's also his fault for trying to sweep it under the rug. You can't "fake news" this away because it's a real problem that has to be taken seriously. And our president seems to be incapable of doing anything beyond how it helps or hurts his own ambitions. His leadership sucks.

                I no longer understand what it means that something is "politicized." Yes, his management of it has been harshly and correctly criticized. It’s also morphed into criticism of his entire presidency - also correctly, because while the virus itself is a new situation, what he’s doing is the same as everything he’s done as president.
                History is our lessons to learn good things to do and bad things to not do.

                  Every time I hear the phrase - Covid 19, I think I'm hearing Come on Eileen. Then that song gets stuck in my head for hours.

                      Covid-19
                      Poor old Johnny Ray
                      Sounded sad upon the radio
                      But he moved a million hearts in mono
                      Our mothers cried, sang along, who'd blame them
                      You're grown (so grown up)
                      So grown (so grown up)
                      Now I must say more than ever
                      (Covid-19)
                      Too ra loo ra too ra loo rye aye
                      And we can sing just like our fathers
                      Covid-19, oh I swear (what he means)
                      At this moment, you mean everything
                      I touch my face, my thoughts a disgrace
                      Verge on dirty

                        And for those in the know, the more serious threat. Every Day:

                        The Return of the Giant Hogweed
                        Turn and run
                        Nothing can stop them
                        Around every river and canal
                        Their power is growing

                        Stamp them out
                        We must destroy them
                        They infiltrate each city
                        With their thick dark warning odour

                        They are invincible
                        They seem immune to all our herbicidal battering

                        Long ago in the Russian hills
                        A Victorian explorer found
                        The regal Hogweed by a marsh
                        He captured it and brought it home

                        Botanical creature stirs
                        Seeking revenge
                        Royal beast did not forget
                        He came home to London
                        And made a present of the Hogweed
                        To the Royal Gardens at Kew

                        Waste no time
                        They are approaching
                        Hurry now, we must protect ourselves
                        And find some shelter

                        Strike by night
                        They are defenseless
                        They all need the sun
                        To photosensitize their venom

                        Still they're invincible
                        Still they're immune to all our herbicidal battering

                        Fashionable country gentlemen
                        Had some cultivated wild gardens
                        In which they innocently planted
                        The Giant Hogweed throughout the land

                        Botanical creature stirs
                        Seeking revenge
                        Royal beast did not forget
                        Soon they escaped, spreading their seed
                        Preparing for an onslaught
                        Threatening the human race

                        Mighty Hogweed is avenged
                        Human bodies soon will know our anger
                        Kill them with your hogweed hairs
                        Heracleum Mantegazziani

                        Giant Hogweed lives!

                          South Korea. Who has been testing right from the start, is reporting a drop in new cases.

                            Seems likely that every country will have a similar time curve that China and South Korea has had. Our peak might not be here for a couple of months if we follow those patterns.

                              That's good. They're way ahead of us, as is every developed country, I'm sure.

                                My sister travels a lot (and I mean a lot). And she has told me when she returns to the U.S. after being at certain places it feels like this is a third world country.
