    Funny thing, my company employs over 300 people in our small area and no one has gotten it, or their immediate families. Additionally, a friend of mine's company that owns over 30 stores in NYS, NYC, NJ and our area of Maryland have no one with it so far.
    Nothing funny about that. More like none of them have tested positive for it (yet) and almost none of them have been tested period.

    think about how insane that is... we will be looking at what a million deaths by the time this is over maybe world wide?
    That seems way excessive. We're at 2400 right now. I can't see it getting up to 100-200K.

    it really depends tbh... 100k is possible but 200k i highly doubt... its going to spread drastically over the next 3-6 weeks then hopefully it dies off.

    At least for my company, it's food service and folks are constantly washing hands (even before this) and each location is making sure everything is sanitized and making sure the team is safe. Can't say anything about my friends company though, but they are taking very similar precautions from what we've talked about.

    I imagine states like Maryland and Ohio, who have been out in front of this, would put some similar restrictions into effect.
    Yea, with ckntagoous disease limiting travel is key. Honestly when the first case popped up in US I thought they were going to start implementing something at airports and screening travelers somehow.

    Strictly from a medical perspective saying that china is fudging numbers right now during a global health crisis is laughable. The entire world is going to predicate their responses based on China's numbers in wuhan. They are not going to lie to the whole world about that. They sent 4 million masks to italy yesterday. China ****ed up and they know it, they're not gonna keep fudging numbers right now, there is no logical reason to think that they are.

    Yeah, no. I would never buy anything that government says at face value. **** can be fudged to make them look as if they did a better job than other countries in trying to contain it.

    Them sending masks and other **** is basically trying to look better after what happened.

    Trump wanting to Quarantine NY/NJ and got talked out of it by the idiotic mayors and his white house people... phila is legit next
    You canít do that and is not like we already have a shelter in place strategy.

    People in Philly got it the same way people in NY got it from someplace else, so again best way to protect is to self isolate.

    Because you canít do that, at the end of the day this is still the US and you canít stop US citizens from trying to get away from any of these places that are at high risks. You would be violating peopleís basic civil rights.

    I think states should restrict travel between each other. I've been thinking this for a while.

    Every state should go according to their local data, diff areas are in diff stages of progression.

    Yes, exactly, they are trying to look better, fudging the numbers doesnt accomplish that. If they do that everyone will find out eventually, this stuff is all observable and measurable. You can compare data sets and start claiming with accuracy which sets are legit and which aren't.

    Exactly. We've had churches and public places here closed, and a friend of mine is a priest in Tennessee outside Memphis and they just voluntarily closed the church. They are now at the area we were two weeks ago, and doing it mostly out of precaution.

    He had a chance to be out in front of this early on and did nothing now is trying to place blame everywhere else.
    They call him photo op Bill around here.

    If Trump can become president with no political background then I don't understand why I need a resumť

    Not paying super close attention but I believe Trump just said the experts expect the United States' peak to come in about two weeks and that they're extending the self quarantine mode to 4/30.
