Weather the storm with loving kindness. In isolation or in togetherness. Me, Ive been basically living in seclusion for some years, with some very limited social contacts, once or twice a week, mostly my kids and mom, and my girlfriend. Living by myself since 10 years. What the world could need would be solidarity, and taking care of elderly neighbors, or the helpless in general.

Spirituality as in meditation has been a great boon in my life. Going inside, into that inner stillness has helped me a lot. Hard to put in words what it has done in my life. It made me stronger than I'd ever thought possible.

Just my 2 cents, friend.

Britain is now a control group for epidemiologists.

Background:

I'm an epidemiologist. When I heard about Britain's 'heard immunity' coronavirus plan, I thought it was satire
...

Also:

Some easy to understand graphs show what will happen to the UK.

But wait.  There are no consequences of significance when a news outlet either falsely reports a story, or just plain does a poor job with sourcing.

Me, I'll be waiting for the retractions published on page 32, in tiny print.

Not true. The Welt story was wrong. But Business Insider, Reuters and others went with it anyway despite not having their own sources. Now everyone is back peddling.

Just another day where #fakenews never ends.  You folks should be smarter by now and not fall for explosive tripe like this.  But you're not.   Why is that, exactly?  Maybe you like clicking on  those groovy phishing emails too.
 
he says offering no evidence. I guess I'll believe him because he says what you want to hear

 
You say. Repeat, repost, regurgitate, because the story says what you want to hear.

It seems you're not very familiar with how real journalism is supposed to work.  BTW... ever heard of Gawker Media ?    I'd guess no.

I actually think the US will come out of this pandemic thing ok, or at least not as bad as someone might think given your dismal healthcare for the lower income people. One strength of the US system is that you have more ICU beds per capita than any other country.

That's quite likely the issue. Some routes are getting pretty congested as people shift to working & playing from home. The NA <> Asia routes are quite likely particularly hard hit.

Shit is getting real when sheltering in place starts to affect RP.

As misinformation spreads, 'snake oil salesmen' are profiting off anxiety over coronavirus, says reporter

Social Distancing: This is Not a Snow Day
What I can clearly say is that what we do, or don’t do, over the next week will have a massive impact on the local and perhaps national trajectory of coronavirus. We are only about 11 days behind Italy and generally on track to repeat what is unfortunately happening there and throughout much of the rest of Europe very soon.
