    Perhaps the very presence is a pretty good reminder to folks to behave in a way consistent with not catching or spreading a virus.

    I've noticed that stores that have placed the foot markers on the ground for people to use to gauge their distance from one another have fewer people crowding. Reminders/perceived enforcement does wonders.

    Getting into a physical altercation doesn't tend to succeed if not being physically close is the goal.

    I have now changed my mind 100%.

    We are screwed, I have talked to several friends in multiple states that own businesses. They have ALL had zero success with the government assistance.

    China is buying stocks bid time at depressed prices.

    We have been played 100%.

    China is winning WW3

    Here's the mentality we are dealing with. Buddy of mine wrote these comments. He does a lot of biz in China, married to a Chinese women, etc, been "talked to" by Chinese authorities and subtly told doing biz in China might become very difficult for him should he continue to say/post such things on social media:

    The West’s ‘three arrogances’ are obstacles to solidarity

    His comments:

    This is from the Global Times (the CCP's unofficial news outlet) - check the URL. The author is associate dean of the School of International Studies at Renmin University of China.
    This is what he thinks of you (and what they read over there) - American & European alike.

    1) It does not matter if you are male, female, black, gay, whatever. You are RACIST.

    2) You are "culturally arrogant" - how dare you criticize any Asian people for eating bats, rats, bugs, snakes and having "wild markets." SILENCE, ROUND EYE! YOU ARE ARROGANT!

    To quote my favorite little useful idiot & faux environmentalist, Greta Tardburg, "HOW DARE YOU?!?"

    3) Finally, if you are a Leftist/Progressive/Democrat/Intellectually Challenged? Yeah, this is a direct quote about how they feel about minority rights so they are NOT ON YOUR
    SIDE. "[...]the governing parties have spent too much effort considering the interests of minorities and small groups...social rights are a problem in the Western democratic system."

    LOL. You academic lefties just got kicked in the metaphorical crotch. Not. On. Your. Side. Not a chance.

    Sweet. Finally, the author gets on his knees to kowtow to the CCP and how superior everything is over there as compared to here.

    "China has shown strong leadership, industrial and technological capabilities and the entire society's cultural cohesion and optimism in the fight against COVID-19. China is willing to contribute to the global fight against the pandemic, and Western countries need to change their previous wrong ideas as soon as possible."

    Friends Father died from it and we have a friend (nurse in her early 30s) in the ICU on a ventilator from it. Once of the agents at my office is married to a guy who has it and is in isolation but looks to be through the worst of it and wasn't as bad off as others.
    Tell my tale to those who ask. Tell it truly; the ill deeds along with the good, and let me be judged accordingly.

    Yes, I know two: a 68yo retired cop from CT who is a distant in-law, and a 44yo from metro Detroit. I also know another person who had it in FL, was very sick but never had to be hospitalized and has now recovered. It's real.

    Take with a grain since it came out of China, but Olight's sponsored distribution and pub of this "from the front line" handbook. Would appreciate if our medical pros took a look and gave your takes...

    You really have to ask why Conservatives have guns? Because Liberals block freeways, burn cities, throw Molotov cocktails, loot, turn over cop cars, and think this behavior is Socially Acceptable.

    We are starting to see some looting of small shops that have closed or have limited hours now.

    As of Monday, the model predicted the virus will kill 81,766 people in the United States over the next four months, with just under 141,000 hospital beds being needed. That's about 12,000 fewer deaths -- and 121,000 fewer hospital beds -- than the model estimated on Thursday.
    A "massive infusion of new data" led to the adjustments, according to the model's maker, Dr. Christopher Murray, who serves as director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington School of Medicine

    The overblown and fear-based response to this will go down as one of the biggest cluster****s in human history. Junk in = junk out. Or another way to put it is they were talking out of their a$s. Donít have a ****ing clue. Donít know their a$$ from a hole in the ground. And donít try to tell me the social distancing is working nobodyís doing that crap.
    Have the statements from these yahoos talk about how much noncompliance there is and how we have to do better.
