    So much has happened in a month.

    My thoughts of this being nothing was way off.
    Crushes the stock market and unemployment rates skyrocket.
    $8.5 Billion turns into 2 TRILLION.
    And the deaths are piling up.

    What's next?
    SVT COBRA

    I can tell you what I HOPE is next.

    The numbnuts in the White House is trying to reopen the country when we should be doing the opposite.

    #1: Dead people don't contribute to the economy even if you don't care that they die (and I DO care).

    #2: Fortunately the numbnuts doesn't really control that - hopefully the states, counties and municipalities that actually have that power and are closer to the disaster and more intelligent and empathetic will ignore any attempt to reopen the country and keep stay-at-home orders in place until we get through this.

    #3: if anyone thinks this doesn't make sense, look at the examples already out there that we can learn from; those that let their guard down too soon are getting a second wave, while those that didn't are under control and healthy. Nearly a third of the world’s population are living under coronavirus- related movement restrictions. They got it before we did and they are proving it is working. The US should be able to be as smart as they are and follow their example.

    Tonight we became the #1 country in the world with deaths.
    I've said before, I feel this be similar to flu, may die down during summer, but pop up next fall/winter.
    Then at least handle with a vaccine

    Vaccine wont be available by this fall....Maybe by next Spring.

    Yeah, it's the flu on steroids. Mortality rate is much higher than the Flu.

    Corona Virus

    Dennis,

    I meant no disrespect about your mother. I'm glad she's doing well, as is my 96 year old mother in law. All I was saying was the hype about the deaths were mostly older people who were already having health issues. It has become worse. I hope everyone stays safe

    Yes just read, experts saying that vaccine maybe, maybe ready in 18 months from now. That's a hopeful thought.

    I under stand and she is fine at the moment. My Son Kevin who travels all over the world tested positive for the virus last Sunday. Feeling OK no fever aches all over headache and has lost his sense of smell
    Doctor said that was part of what the virus does. So right now my plate is pretty full.And watching the numbers go up doesn't look like it's going to end anytime soon. People think it may quiet down when it gets warmer
    when it was at it's peak in China temp average was 84 degree's and humidity was way up also. So I don't think summer will be the answer hope I am wrong.

    Corona

    They're saying it won't peak for at least 2-4 more weeks. Not a very sobering thought. Dennis glad your son is doing OK. I wish they would have called it something else, now I feel like a cold drink with a lime
