    Do you really think "A strong travel advisory" is going to stop anyone from NYC from fleeing if they have the means?

    Vermont's first C19 case was from someone from NYC fleeing to their summer cabin.
    and what do you think the effect of telling the tri-state area that they could be locked down in a few days might be?

    I'd be shocked if they haven't started to look at them as a treatment option in the US already.
    It works on genital warts so should be effective for some of the pricks in this thread. (Not you).

    Someone has to make everything in the stores...
    Still being made because that stuff is classified as necessary....so a factory could be downsized because some products are deemed unnecessary..But still remain open for needed items to be made...same with food factories...maybe no candy in stores eventually..But still the meat and potatoes and veggies and breads.. No plans in this area to skip spring planting

    Youíve read it here. All those people lining up at the stores to stock up are the problem. Food magically appears every night. No need for concern.

    Seemed like there was a light at the end of tunnel in spain and italy but that turned out to be a train.
    NYC paramedics are getting crushed, they set call volume records 4 times in the last week, one day had 7,000 calls, more than 9/11.

    What would you have done to enforce the contract? (BTW, did you read the actual contract and settlement?)

    And, do you think POTUS is supposed to micromanage that kind of shit?

    If so, apply the same logic to Mr. I Donít Take Responsibility currently in office and see where that takes you...

    That's just lack of common sense and power tripping by a 'wanna be life guard.

    I think there will be a second round of panic when the results start coming in. I just took the family to DefCon3 after seeing all the orthodox Jewish people walking to temple last night. The little kids out playing together.

    People are clueless.

    Donít forget to re provision TP if U find it.

    Yes.

    But I'm a little more concerned about the breakdown of social order as "first responders" get ill at the same time they are emptying the jails. And, then yeah, food shortages on top of that.

    Stopping the spread is what it is all about. Wearing masks, gloves and good hygiene.
    No mask, no entry - good. You also need to stop the far spread. China shut down Hubie province. Italy and France have shut down entire countries.
    I agree, Trump thinking out load sounds stupid.
    The idea is not. "A strong travel advisory" is BS.

    Yeah, thatís the only part of Bill Gates interview I didnít get. He wants a country wide lockdown but no travel restrictions? If weíre going to praise the Chinese, then we should be limiting travel, in all states!

    Iím told in Chile, there are restrictions in Santiago.

    What the fuck is the difference if we ban travel when weíre already locked up in our houses?

    Anyway, its too late anyway. We need a nation wide lockdown/travel ban now, cause New Yorkers were so special those that could have already fled.

    Currently predicting peak death rate 15 days out would imply we were at peak transmission 5 days ago (on average), right?

    Seems like a more granular view might be useful.

    Been considering this since the get go...my question is...what will the leading indicators be? For example, there was a five day lag time between the first reports of toilet paper being hoarded in big cities in the states to reports of runs on teepee here locally in small town bc canada.

    I have a personal escape plan to an isolated fishing village off the west coast that will have a reliable supply of ocean and land based proteins and a climate that is conducive to growing stuff in a greeenhouse. Sure as fawk hope it doesn't get to that point...the cats don't road trip all that well...but...just in case, provisions have been prepared and the step by step plan is ready. My better half is on board with the program.
    Master of mediocrity.

    If it does get that bad...you may find the village quite crowded when you arrive

    Not really. I haven't had any fresh veggies in a few days now because most of what's available after the senior hours is garbage. Frozen has been mostly sold out for a week now and when I looked on Thursday afternoon at the biggest supermarket in the area there wasn't a single package of frozen veggies in the store. I tried waiting in line the other day, got there at 6am as the senior hours were starting and the line was out to the end of the parking lot filled with people waiting for senior hours to end. The people getting there at 6am don't get in until after 9 and by then there's nothing important left.

    YES

    Given the delay of the virus between cities and rural, coupled with the lower rates of transmission where social distancing is natural; cities are going to get double fucked.

    When the guys that let America survive get on the stay at home plan we're all fucked.

    Plant your garden and hunker down.
