Now that is totally stuck in my head, well played Sir, well played. I’ll definitely be passing this along to others as I believe in paying it forward
so this morning, SWMBO asked me if they were planning on cancelling/rescheduling Blade show - since everything else is being cancelled/closed through the end of April.
(I know it's in June -- but this will likely still be a thing then)
Other viruses like H1N1 killed millions and there was no panic like this as I recall? Politics? More social media?
The global death toll from the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic was around 284,000, not "millions".
This is about 0.02% of the total number infected, which is estimated at about 24% of the global population.
COVID-19 is estimated to eventually affect 70-80% of the global population and the death rate is looking to be much higher - from 1% to over 3%.
Do the math.
Had my nieces birthday party @ Chuck E. Cheese. Everyone must be out buying TP.
Hopefully everyone is staying home. I want the golf dome all to myself tomorrow.
Isn't Chuck E. Cheese a petri dish of bacteria and viruses even when we're not in the midst of a pandemic?
Chucky was scared. Didn't even show up. Bastid.
No... it IS a virus or bacteria.

I'll buy some Corona beer so it suits the situation while I drink it in coronavirus quarantine
Okay...you are today's Winner.
So, my pup can take off the face mask now ?
I think you'll find that death rate to be way overstated. That percentage is based on the number of people that actually tested positive. There are many more people who have had it with little to no serious effects than there are people that have tested positive for the virus. So, all those people never got tested, they are not included in the reporting, they are not accounted for in the math, and as a result the actual percentage is far lower. If you did the same math with the flu, but removed all the people that only had minor symptoms from the equation I bet the percentage would be the same or worse.
