I'm fine where I am. Working from home permanently would be just fine by me. Not sure my bosses would want to see that though, but they haven't said anything to the contrary yet, so we'll see.cwerdna wrote: ↑Wed May 20, 2020 1:53 amScientists propose a 50 days on, 30 days off coronavirus lockdown strategy

Not only has the above incident happened there have been instances of people being shot over masks (e.g. https://www.fox23.com/news/trending/cor ... J4PUQWDTY/) and brawls (e.g. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/target-sec ... face-mask/). Then there was this guy who wore a KKK hood: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/ku-klux-kl ... o-charges/. WTF!?!?

It boggles the mind how bad the red/blue divide has gotten in this country, with those on the red side wiling to put themselves and others in danger to "own the libs". And let's be honest - that's really all most of this is.
Wear a mask if you can't.
Follow the advice of scientists.
I wanna haircut/drink/go to the beach!
I ain't wearin' no mask!
Bleach cocktail with a side of fish tank cleaner? Yes, please!
Virtually all states are varying shades of "Purple" because they have both liberals and rednecks in them. New York, generally though of as a liberal Blue state, is actually mostly Republican (and worse) North of New Rochelle, meaning that most of the state, geographically, is Red. It's only the larger cities here that are majority liberal, and in some of those it's by a small margin.esp. in red states of those folks don't take social distancing and mask wearing seriously.
570 employees at Tyson Plant in Wilkesboro test positive for COVID-19, the company saysFord Motor closed and then reopened its Chicago Assembly plant twice in less than 24 hours after two workers tested positive for Covid-19, the company confirmed Wednesday.
The brief closures on separate shifts Tuesday are the first-known types of incidents since Detroit automakers started reopening their large North American assembly plants on Monday. The plants were shuttered in March in an attempt to protect workers and lower the spread of the disease.
Ford also shut down its Dearborn Truck plant in Michigan on Wednesday after an employee there tested positive for Covid-19, the company confirmed later in the day. It is expected to resume operations Wednesday night, according to a Ford spokeswoman.

Yes, covered developments of potential treatments (antibodies etc.) and vaccines (RNA & DNA) as well as showing the kind of contact tracing that was instituted in Wuhan, with Nova's more scientific emphasis than you get in the mass media.
Was helpful to see more about their QR code, green (and other color) code system that incorporates contact tracing. That level of Big Brotherism I don't think would fly here in the US. It would have to be something more anonymized w/no central database like Google and Apple developed (which I honestly know little about).
I started a thread on that ep over at https://www.tivocommunity.com/community ... 19.577442/. I wonder if anyone will respond. In TCF's happy hour/off-topic area, there's a sub-area for coronavirus discussion. But, you need to have a free account there to see both of those.
3 of the states have population densities so low that any outbreak would be somewhat less newsworthy but then 2 of the states had large meat processing facilities and we know how that went. This is where nearly all the infections came from for some areas. Its just another nursing home situation aggravated by the fact that a high percentage of workers are/recent immigrants that tend to have extended family living situations so they brought it on home with them.
