    Don't know if this was posted on this thread or the other, but this is a must-read for anyone who hasn't read it. I've cancelled every league/social event I'm a part of. Even if it doesn't end up hurting me, helping it spread only sentences that many more people over the age of 60 to death.

    I got swine flu in 2010 or 11 and it fucking sucked.

    The Geico high five commercial is hilariously mis-timed

    My sister got it twice as a freshman at the Coast Guard Academy. The CDC came out to interview her bc youíre only supposed to get it once.

    So living in Europe is pretty great right now....

    In all seriousness, Portugal has not been hit as hard as many other western European countries. Still no deaths, and less than 100 cases. There was a run on meats at the super markets yesterday, but that seems to be the only panic. Museums are closed, soccer matches are being played without fans, schools still open. Not much else to report.

    Is it possible that Rico's goth curing powers could be the solution to this whole mess?

    Touching people is part of the problem. The goth girl was ahead of her time with her arms crossed in the corner avoiding contact.

    Correction, all of Continental Europe has been categorized a level 3 by the State Dept. Maybe this goes on the political thread, but UK and Ireland both have Trump golf courses and they have no travel restrictions, but Portugal who has less cases than both is restricted?

    The week before last a friend of mine got super sick with chills, fever, etc, for about five days. Missed a couple days of work. I helped her out a bit, and we actually considered that maybe she had caught it. (This was right around the time of those first two cases were announced in NC)
    A few days later, I started having a low fever and bad congestion that lasted about four to five days. Never got chills but did get bad fatigue.
    Only caveat on the fatigue is, this all overlapped with my Dad passing away. (Definitely NOT corona-related)
    Sick and mourning is a seriously shitty time.

    Not sure if we have any providers on here or not, but if so, my company will be providing Telehealth software to any practice in the country free of charge starting on Monday.

    the closing is coming, i feel it. I just got an email reminding us that the IB students' projects are still due, which makes me think they know something I don't.

    That underscores just how ignorant humans are.
    Brand new disease and no one on earth has immunity in any capacity yet people have been joking about for months.
    Sure memes, internet celebrities, and idiot politicians know more than scientists.
