I think this is near the bottom of the list

Reply to A possible solution. 3/18/2020 9:04 AM

The possibility of virus transmission is only one consideration. Another is that motocross is a high risk activity - which we all know and accept - which means holding a motocross event will very likely result in situations requiring medical care. If ... more »

I work in accounting for a big 4 firm. We haven’t been told to work from home yet but I’m guessing we will be at some point. We have unlimited sick days so if someone is sick there is no reason for them to be at work. Businesses still need accounting ... more »

Mixed emotions, I would imagine.

If there is an asterisk on Tomac's title (if indeed that is what happens), the question is: So what? It's not like an asterisk due to steroid use or something else that he did wrong. If it's simply to inform people who look up the information in the ... more »

That's very concerning. The problem is that this is the kind of information that can cause panic. People feel like they have some measure of control of the situation if they believe that they can prevent transmission with hand washing, hand sanitizer, ... more »

Not disagreeing - just thinking out loud about what you said.

I think you've missed abomination's point: I believe he was ridiculing the idea that a population reduction activist would target a nursing home. The broader point is worth reflection, though. This idea that "if you're a healthy adult you have nothing ... more »

It seems that the rather significant distinction between "mortality rate" and "number of deaths" is often overlooked. According to the numbers you've presented, the mortality rate for coronavirus is 20 times higher than the flu. Since there are probably ... more »

Unbelievable. I find the older I get, the more I like dogs and the less I like people.

So, some Americans really do think the world revolves around them.

I’d say twit, but that’s splitting hairs.

"Proven beyond reasonable doubt" wouldn't have been the standard of evidence in your case - that's the standard in criminal cases. It would be the preponderance of evidence. Please stop with the laughing emojis. From what I'm gathering, nobody dislikes ... more »

Nothing to disagree with in your post. I'm certainly not advocating panic, but rather, awareness that this has the potential to be serious so we should pay attention to what experts have to say and heed their advice. Pneumonia is often a complication ... more »

Yes, it pales in mortality rate compared to Ebola, but a virus with a lower mortality rate that spreads more easily can be more deadly overall as there will be more cases. The importance of containing the spread until treatments and eventually a vaccine ... more »

Is this supposed to be comforting? The Spanish Flu had a mortality rate around 2.5% and it killed more people than WW1.
