Yeah.. Life choices. But can you imagine dealing with the level of turd as an officer on that department.

Nothing like making that t stop and all the bald heads put their hands out the window automatically.

I think I'd lose me shit after the first "Don't you know who I am" comment.
Anaheim does too with some O/T and less headaches. Just don’t be a lateral and fire an AR through the window on a pursuit, lol
What a video that was

That is not completely true.

The immunity comes from the antibodies your body creates to fight it off. The antibodies for Coronavirus are very short lived and are typically out of the body within 2-3 weeks. Once the antibodies are gone you can contract the virus again.

MODERNA

The first participant in a clinical trial for a vaccine to protect against the new coronavirus will receive an experimental dose on Monday, according to a government official.

Seems going direct to testing people.

The National Institutes of Health is funding the trial, which is taking place at the Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute in Seattle.

Most large employers have business interruption insurance for issues like this one.
Even so the costs are going to be huge from this...…….. My dads biggest client owned several casino's around Vancouver. He built a large casino in Chinatown in Vancouver during the 1990's. The casino was profitable in two weeks, including paying off the construction costs.

We don't need martial law as much as people to respond in a sensible manner...

The shape of the response curve is what we need to shift.

Yes we do
Your point is?
We’re hiring.....
Guaranteed you’ll make six figures in your first year but Beverly Hills makes about $200k after first year so I’d apply there lol
Point is I have skills and certs to be a first responder but I'm not one especially for 40k a year😲. I have a speeding ticket on my record from 27 years ago so I won't make the cut at Beverly Hills PD. LOL

They’ve been talking about it for a while. Many of the qualifying events have been postponed already so it’s looking more than likely they will be postponed if not cancelled altogether. With the investment made by the host city and country I’d have to imagine they’ll go on but at a later date.

Another issue, people have stolen all of the PPE from the hospitals. No gowns, masks, hand sanitizer. Distributors are trying to keep up. Lol whatta fucking joke.
Just to clarify, people have not stolen all the PPE from hospitals. There have been cases of people stealing from hospitals but it is far far far from all the PPE.

I work in a hospital, and I can say that as of this morning, gowns and hand sanitizer are non-existent. And yes, we had to stop people from stealing our supplies off the walls outside the rooms. My coworkers who also work at other hospitals have confirmed it is the same at most other facilities.

Wifes hospital looks like a fortress, extra security, tents set up outside to screen people before being allowed into the ER, only one guest per patient, no children guests, and they shut down the cafeteria salad bar!!!!!

Interesting statistical analysis. My out of town work has been suspended for the next few weeks. Just gonna work from home and ride my dirt bike as much as possible

I've been trying to get a reasonably independent look at all of the data. That's what I want: data. The analysis above comes to the opposite of my personal conclusions up until now. Of course we need to take it all in, so I really appreciate you posting this. I've been going to the CDC and Johns Hopkins sites, but now understand why the data there might be too early to rely on. If I look at this link: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/cases-in-us.html

Scroll down to the daily reported cases number and I conclude this is nothing to worry about. Tommy's link, gives me the opposite conclusion. Shit! Now what?

You can not rely on confirmed cases as a reliable indicator.

Many states have extremely limited testing resources available. Colorado was as of late considered to be leading the charge in testing for the virus.

We have a population of 3M people in the Denver metro area. The facility is only opened for a couple hours a day and is only testing around 1k people. Even if we had 50K infected people the data can’t show it because we’re not conducting nearly enough tests to determine how many people have already been infected.

Right now I can walk into any urgent care facility or Doctors office across the country to be screened for influenza. That is not the case for COVID.

Trudeau just spoke. Closing our borders for all non citizens. Americans are exempt.
A whole bunch of canadians left early today to migrate home early. They normally leave our park end of this month.

Not a direct quote but Trudeau also said to return home before its impossible. I think they are getting ready to close the CDN/US border.

My guess is that there will be a complete closure but they don’t want to do it immediately because it will cause their entry points and airports to be completely overrun. Just look at what happened to our customs as a result of the EU travel ban.

But... Wouldn't the rate of confirmed cases mirror the rate of infection on a percentage basis? So let's say it's 100 x worse than confirmed cases shows, but if the rate is not increasing, that would still tell you that we are not seeing exponential growth as would rationalize the panic we are seeing. Make any sense?

My thoughts are that since there isn’t any conclusive data out there I might as well steer clear of people for a while. This is going to get worse before it gets better.

Not quiet sure what you are getting at here.... But so far only the worst cases have been tested and diagnosed for the most part. With the overwhelming majority of the peoe that contract the virus only experiencing minor symptoms, many aren't even going in to be tested cause it's not the "Doom and gloom disease" that the media is making it out to be. So because of that the percentages are very much skewed. Obviously it's anybody's guess how things will TRULY pan out, but my guess is as testing becomes more widespread the numbers will back what most health professionals have been saying as this should just be treated like the normal flu as far as prevention and such.

I can just about guarantee the lethality of this will end up being right about the same as the standard influenza viruses.

As much as I keep touting I would like to support the local bars and restaurants, I do not want to be selfish. I am 49 and healthy, but really don't want to get it and infect others around me.

We are hunkered down at home for the time being :confused:

Out here, they will only test if you are hospitalized for it....but they don't know if you have it, unless they test...so our county has no confirmed cases ;)

Love the logic there!

Drive thrus are doing a robust business. Remember the Cali liberals are trying to eliminate - and in some areas in Cali have eliminated food drive thrus.
This is what you get with liberalism.

I’m guessing we’re on the same page. What I’m trying to say is whether or not the confirmed cases is accurate, growth of infection rates as a percentage of the previous day should still be reasonably accurate as to the actual increase in cases. Sooo... if we only see 50 more cases a day it shows that it is flat or dying off. If testing increases, and confirmed cases stay flat, it is dying.

I think the worst part about all this is after is all said and done and it works out like most in the healthcare field are predicting, the powers that be are going to chalk the "great results" up to this isolation and society shit down which will create a precedence that every "epidemic" or "pandemic" should be handled in the same manner.

Then you have the politicans that start using the government mandated shut downs as an example of how great the government would do at managing everybody's health care and how if they ran the system there wouldn't be a delay on testing materials, beds, etc....etc.....
