Unfortunately, the scientists made a really bad mistake early on by saying 'DON'T wear a mask.'

Using fish tank cleaner to cure trumpvirus is not the real story, what we were told was a smoke screen.

Unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you look at it, no one is dumb enough to take fish tank cleaner to cure trumpvirus.
But they're dumb enough to poison their spouse with it, try to blame the president and get caught.
Now why would a kool-aid drinking never trumper dnc donor listen to the president on this?
Sounds a little fishy don't it, the local authorities also seem to think her story doesn't hold water.

Is going to get you.

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.

One thing the US has a lot of is jerks.

https://www.tmz.com/2020/05/19/costco-e ... cle_inline
Jerks. Yes.

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.

Blue:

Stay home.
Wear a mask if you can't.
Follow the advice of scientists.

Red:

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!
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!?!? Seriously?

More examples of jerks of protesters harassing a reporter: https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/cl ... us-protest.

I skimmed https://www.cnbc.com/2020/05/20/voters- ... finds.html last night and can only say sigh... we will have a long way to go until we have a publicly available, safe, effective vaccine (or the virus somehow burns itself out), esp. in red states of those folks don't take social distancing and mask wearing seriously.

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.

Ford temporarily closes two plants after three workers test positive for coronavirus
https://www.cnbc.com/2020/05/20/ford-cl ... id-19.html
Ford 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.
570 employees at Tyson Plant in Wilkesboro test positive for COVID-19, the company says

WILKESBORO, N.C. - Tyson Foods said that 570 employees at its plant in Wilkesboro have tested positive for COVID-19.

The company tested a total of 2,244 team members and contractors who work at the facility. According to a news release, the majority of those who tested positive did not show any symptoms and otherwise would not have been identified.

Thanks! Any good?

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.
Thank you! I watched. It was good.

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.
It also up at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dz5WE3hgvBY now.

OT: https://twitter.com/NYPDnews/status/126 ... 75329?s=20 says
"As of today, Wednesday, May 20th, 5,521 members of the NYPD have returned to work full duty after recovering from a positive test for the coronavirus and 100 uniformed members plus 28 civilian members are still out sick diagnosed with coronavirus."

How about the 7 states that never shut down it seems they are containing the out break?
Oh and at what point are "they going to be sorry they didn't"? I was hearing that alot 6 weeks ago, not a peep any more.
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.

Two others expected to peak at the end of April or early May are doing ok but hardly killing it. We also have to realize that stay at home is a term that needs to be defined since all the schools have been closed. So is that some sort of special category?
