NHK conducted an experiment to see how germs spread at a cruise buffet.

They applied fluorescent paint to the hands of 1 person and then had a group of 10 people dine.

In 30 min the paint had transferred to every individual and was on the faces of 3.

That sounds like an episode of Mythbusters too.

Thanks! Any good?

I forgot to record it but it seems like there are reruns. Looks like it can be watched at https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/video/decoding-covid-19/, as well.

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.

Have only had a chance to skim this.
https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1260 ... 42434.html and https://twitter.com/laurelchor/status/1 ... 1401782273.
I’ve landed in Hong Kong after flying from Paris CDG, via London Heathrow. I now have to wait ~8 hours before I get my #COVID19 test results and thus have ample time to tweet about my experience.
Was interesting. They also on Twitter wrote:
If I broke my quarantine, I could be jailed for up to 6 months and fined up to HK$25,000 (US$3,225). The HK government also encourages people to report quarantine breakers. I would be genuinely afraid of the public wrath if I were to step outside wearing my bracelet.

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.

More coronavirus theater that accomplishes nothing. Just another excuse for government to get up in your bitness.

NRA rules. Pull gun, get what you want. Private property doesn't matter, if you have the gun and they don't.
Try that and let us know how it turns out.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/national ... story.html
OWOSSO, Mich. — Armed members of the Michigan Home Guard stood outside Karl Manke's barbershop, ready to blockade the door if police arrived. They were determined to help Manke, 77, reopen his shop Monday, in defiance of state orders, and dozens joined them, wearing Trump sweatshirts and Trump cowboy hats and waving Trump flags.
Isn't that just ... Special?

77 isn't a good age to get Covid-19. Hopes and prayers.
