    Lol, maybe you should look at your own place before having opinions on how other countries deal with it.
    You don't need to keep everyone at home. You just need to enforce police curfew and everyone caught braking it gets fined. In my country it's 4x average salary and 3 years in prison if you leave isolation.

    Here's hoping that you have an extremely uneventful three weeks and recover with no ill effects.

    I'm a surgeon. I've sent my kids and wife of to live with her parents in a rural region of Germany almost 4 weeks back by now, seeing how exposed and likely to get this I was. I've only had contact to colleagues and friends the past weeks, and I've been testing myself regularly every few days. Like all medical staff I'm rather exposed, and I like to err on the side of caution.
    I'm almost 100% certain where I got it. I had to operate on a patient who was tested positive, with obstructions in the lungs, probably a result of smoking. No hard feelings, the risk comes with the profession. But thanks for your kind words.

    But viruses are still going to spread. Sure, they handled it in a shitty way. But the rest of the world was always going to get it, even if China handled it with absolute perfection. Novel viruses suck. We could have known more faster, but the rest of the world handled this in a god awful way, too.

    And I might have had a drink to many. Fuck this virus. And, @Gaidax, fuck China. I was way to laid back a few days back in my response, and you were right. God damn criminal what they did. They're not going to pay for it but they sure as hell should.

    God, I hate feeling this helpless.
    Best of luck. And wishing you to be asymptomatic. I, coincidentally(?), had a very nasty cough from mid february to mid march, and wish that to no one (could not get tested).

    And f*ck China indeed. Thousands of our people were mobilized by the army, my brother among them in a hospital battalion, and they'll be working 18/7 for at least 3 months without any chances to see their families...

    It wouldn't surprise me if their real numbers are 10 time the officials...

    On another note, they gave us today a partial explanation to the relatively high number of death in our country : a lot of the very elderly typically ask not to be reanimated if they were to suffer from a crippling illness. A little cultural peculiarity of ours perhaps, since we have legal medically assisted suicide here, doubled down by a growing social pressure on the very elderly to leave without too much fuss, given the typical enormous costs of a highly medicalized or cared end of life... such a charming world.
    "Learn to overcome the crass demands of flesh and bone, for they warp the matrix through which we perceive the world. Extend your awareness outwards, beyond the self of body, to embrace the self of group and the self of humanity. The goals of the group and the greater race are transcendent, and to embrace them is to achieve enlightenment."

    That sucks . Best of luck and a speedy recovery.

    And indeed, fuck china. The people I'm fine with, but fuck their government for causing this and withholding important information to the rest of the world. Every person that died due to this they should be made responsible for. But of course they won't, because when this is all over with big business will still need china for its supply and demand, and government loves big business more the their own people.

    Nah, that will just lead to more xenophobia. It already has a name, and it likely spread out of China before even the Chinese doctors knew what it was.

    Any government is mostly just using to deflect blame from their own fuckups.

    how do you expect to do that if foreign workers are cheaper to employ than a lot of first world countries?

    Another reason the US is fucked the right wing media is now actively telling people to spread the virus.

    Twitter pulls The Federalist’s dangerous ‘pox’ coronavirus tweet

    Facebook has kept their post up btw

    It wasn’t the noise that made NJ cops shut down ‘Corona Party’ that brought warning from state’s governor

    Now these Coronavirus parties are being organized all across the country.

    not sure if it's been posted this thread moves so fast but the US sent NORTHCOMM and other key figures to bunkers

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...in-bunker.html

    smart move but people are taking it to mean more than what it likely does.
