the United States has 4.7% of the world's population and (at last check) 29% of positive cases. I suspect the number is closer to 34-36% if we had adequate testing and were allowed to publish the numbers.

what a pathetic, morally vacant and rudderless country we've become.

I watched a new show on Netflix called Trial by Media. Little did I know- because I had to exist or was too young to realize - but we have been this way for a while.

This is because we test the most. I we tested less, we'd have less cases. Duh.

Trump is obviously obliquely referencing Schrodinger's cat, because he's a stable genius. Until you are tested, you exist in a state of super-reality where you both do and do not have the Corona virus. Because it's opening the box that kills the cat, right?

Did you guys see that the CDC changed their messaging today to state that surface to surface transmission is not likely? Pretty consistent to stuff I've been seeing.

Can’t find the story, but apparently there’s a French study out that shows the virus can travel in winds as low as 2.5 mph. It doesn’t say how small droplets turn after vaporizing, and if the vapor is strong enough to get someone sick. It does say that kids and shorter people are more at risk.


Edit: Forgot to add that these droplets were found to be able to travel up to 18 feet. Be mindful of that when you’re around others.

I don't doubt any of this, but this was posted elsewhere and it is very informative. I would encourage you, in particular, GW to exercise all caution since you are like 83 or whatever. TL;DR, data is beginning to show that this thing is primarily passed by being in close contact with symptomatic folks indoors.

As you all know, I'm no scientist, mathematician, spell champ or deep thinker, but I've always thought, without too much brain power, from worst to best:

Stay away from these people:

1. Symptomatic people indoors.
2. Asymptomatic people indoors.
3. Symptomatic people outdoors
4. Asymptomatic people outdoors.
5. tGreenway indoors or outdoors.

And maybe depending on distance 2 and 3 can be shuffled.

This country is such an embarrassment. I again just checked to see if my type of job had any openings in Australia. Nope. Damn it all.
for the record, my husband has a job waiting for him any time he wants if we moved there.

I’m a bit disappointed in this. Shit is going to blow up so much. Not that my habits will change regardless. But that because most of our states around us have lifted shit, it’s just not going to matter right now. We’re fucked, because the states function independently with the lack of WH leadership.

I know she has. But many do not. And therefore, have already fucked us over. Which is why I'm at the point of just emphasize the masks in public and social distance at work and places. Most people aren't going to follow it right now. And the stupidity is still going to cause the second wave this fall. Although I do hope I am wrong.

And Tim....the CDC guidelines for school sucked for sure. It's still early, and hopefully we know more about what we're dealing with to make things a bit better.
