Thread: Non-Political Coronavirus Thread

  1. #21
    youre better off getting the virus now before it mutates

    Its really hard to keep things non-political when the response to something of this magnitude can only be dealt with by federal and state governments. Additionally as I posted before in the political coronavirus thread the attempts to downplay the severity does just as much disservice as attempts to amplify it and probably comes about from a place of insecurity and feeling of helplessness, where the truth is somewhere in the middle. It is a pandemic, people will die, lives will be disrupted but its not the apocalypse that is always shown in movies.

    As long as it’s non-political.

    It's the flu with a name. There have been bad cases of unnamed flu in previous years and nobody cared much. Marketing is everything. The whole world is acting like the South with a snow forecast. This is going to run its course, probably worldwide, and be pretty much like a regular flu - fever, cough, and unfortunately kill some of the elderly.

    Now that's an informed hot take, 2&2 approves.

    Imagine how politically charged the Italian and South Korean OGBoards threads are!

    I look forward to Coronavirus round table discussion featuring awaken, 2&2, and hopefully we can get the wall street virologist if he has time.

    Very strange.
    They are just little petri dishes for every other fucking bug on the planet.

Wash your hands - you'll be fine. Just my 2 cents.
    I should know better - but what has the “media” reported that you don’t believe, and why?

    not trying to be a dick and I don't know anything about epidemiology, so I ask this earnestly: what is the value in persistent hand sanitization in the home?

    are you afraid that someone in the home has it already and you're protecting the others? because otherwise, it only spreads between humans, no?

    No, sick kids suck for lots of reasons and keeping at least one or both from getting sick is worth it.

    Dude, is this serious question ? When you have four people living under the same roof and one starts puking their brains out and another has to clean it up, you all wash your hands. My son had a stomach virus a couple of weeks ago. He started puking at 10 AM on a Saturday after his two friends who spent the night were leaving. I had to clean up two pukes but never got it and no one else in our house got it. One of his friends came down with it though.

    no, I mean, once everyone is in the home and asymptomatic and has sanitized the once, what's the value in continued sanitization? why have "sanitizer in every room"?

    Because you can be contagious before displaying symptoms or just asymptomatic, but still contagious
