I guess we should probably have a conversation about what qualifies for 'strange', but as long as Björk is on the list I'm still in.

Personally I would go with P100 filter masks but then I use them all the time while doing woodwork and auto wrenching.

The US economy is about to take a hit but overall I reckon the health system should protect Americans.  Some other countries with fewer resources and even stupider politics will not make out as well.

A friend from Taiwan reported that he was delayed on his way to work because his coffee cup set off the fever monitor. They are scanning everyone as they enter the subway system.

Australia doesn't seem very proactive or prepared, but the government is invoking emergency powers if needed to quarantine people. Can't remember if I told you or not, but a green grocer in town was closed for a month - he went to China for a couple of weeks and was asked to self-quarantine for two more weeks when he got back, even though he wasn't near the outbreak. That is really hard on a business. It was great to see the other customers welcoming him back and checking that he was ok.

I am seeing people from Seattle tweet that they can't get tested for COVID even if the have all the symptoms. Then they have to decide whether to stay home or possibly infect others. Hard decision when you don't get any sick leave. I don't know how the US will manage if the worst case scenarios for transmission happen.
 
We will continue to not be responsible as individuals and do the prudent things we should to curb the spread and then blame anyone who does not agree with our political views on why it is getting so bad.  It is the American way.{#Lol}

The scariest thing about that clip when he asks about using the flu vaccine for Corona is at the very end.  After getting the very quick, very clear answer from across the table...NO...someone on his side of the table throws in an "it probably wouldn't work...." in a clear attempt to cast at least the slightest possibility and to cover the stupidity of the President, making him feel better about one of the dumbest questions possible.

We are in unchartered territory with . We have never before seen a respiratory pathogen that is capable of community transmission, but which can also be contained with the right measures.

After saying the coronavirus is nothing worse than the flu, your president expresses surprise that the flu kills at minimum 27 Thousand each year, admonishes the pharmaceutical industry to do a better job with their vaccines, and suggests using some of that flu vaccine to combat coronavirus.
