I mentioned the 'so called liberal media' because it's the first thing the mouth breathers say when they hear a fact they don't like .

Media is corporate in nature and so cannot be liberal .

I'm happy to see most here are doing O.L., one of my old buddies hasn't answered the 'phone nor called back in three days, he lives alone and I'm beginning to worry .

My ex wife too, had gone silent after complaining of no job no money , I E-Mailed her to let her know there's plenty of jobs right now in sales, she's an experienced cashier and office manager, trainer etc. etc. from 40 + years ago when me met and married .

The CT90's starting problem goes back several years now and I have no idea what it can be as I've rebuilt or replaced everything I could think of .

Here's some interesting things to listen to while you're hiding under the bed :

My Foster boys are both 13 Y.O. now and beginning to ask me sex questions, what a mine field ~ I have to get permission from their case workers before I'm willing to tell them about the birds and the bees, they found this on you tube and think it's an educational video =8-) :

For me this whole thing has been beyond surreal. I was returning from a trip just as things started to heat up. I live surrounded by National Forest and what little shopping we've had to do has been in a town of 1200. I have COPD so the wifely one has confined me to barracks. I have not seen a line, she has seen any empty shelves, thin, but not to bad when we here from friends that live in cities all over. I know whats going on out there but it is so strange to pretty much have business as normal at my house while others struggle. Almost feel guilty if you know what I mean. I. have no illusions this thing is still coming for the rural areas. Its just odd as hell, I'm not really a touchy feely dude but my thoughts go out to all at this time.

The nearest thing I can compare it to was when Hurricane Katrina hit down in New Orleans. People said hurricane passed through, lots of wind and rain, then the sky cleared. The day after was bright blue sky and no wind, people out assessing their roofs and any other wind damage. And then, in the clear light of day and no storm, water started running down the streets.

Here in NC the peak isn't supposed to be reached until April 22nd, with a projected 74 deaths on that day. Cases have been roughly doubling each day. And after the peak on April 22nd it isn't as though boom it's all over. It will tail off gradually in the same way it built. This sucker is with us through August-September.

I only thank god, there is no other epidemic, hurricane, earthquake, etc.

I tend to think this might have started back in August of 2019. And we might've already had it back in October of 2019.

September 14, 2019 we have left LAX to Rome. We stayed two days in Rome before embarking Celbrity on September 17, 2019 for 12 day Mediterranean cruise. We have visited two other Italian cities, two Greek islands, two Israeli cities and then disembarked in Athens, flew to Istanbul and stayed in a hotel for another four nights. On the plane from Istanbul to LAX there were many people coughing and sneezing. The hole trip my wife and I were in good health...on the way back (October 4, 2019) we too got sick in that plane back home and we were sick for a week. Our trip took three weeks and there were about 40 of us from Los Angeles, NY, Florida. It wasn't a guided tour. We just all made arrangements for that trip together.

One of our friends is 82 years old. He was transported to the emergency room from the hotel in Rome one night before our cruise (September 16th) and he was kept in the hospital for 10 days. He developed pneumonia.

If some of you remember this girl from last years post...she passed through Russia...
She now couldn't finish her second voyage, got stuck in South America and had too much of trouble getting out of there:

Not an expert, but I'm pretty good at my job. Reading the latest intel on the virus' circulating in my patient population is part of it https://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/index.htm. Reading the lab reports from the flu swabs and respiratory panels is as well. So yes, I'm certain.

Explain Albany GA then. One person with it went to a funeral and the city was swamped in little more than a week. If it started last August in the US, don't you think a hospital somewhere may have noticed a spike of admissions and 27 dead in one week all from the same town that went to the same funeral?

We have enough fear out there without conspiracy theories.

Albany GA is explained by Covid-19. Are you responding to me, or Desantnik-VDV and Pterodactyl? Because you quoted me and I think we're in agreement that the coronavirus causing Covid-19 WAS NOT in the U.S. in August of last year and didn't even start showing up in Wuhan, China until December. There were, however, flu, RSV, and previously known strains of coronavirus that cause similar respiratory symptoms in circulation in August of 2019 which would explain Destantnik-VDV's experience.

Yes, I meant to quote Desantnik-VDV and not you. We are in agreement. I should just not post things on my PHONE with these eyes.

My point being, if it had been the new Cornoavirus beginning August of 2019 someone would have noticed swamped ERs and people dying at an alarming rate far before now. I agree with you, it was some other virus or disease.

Sorry BlueRockCrawler, forgive an old man's eyes.

The virus is here. We're stuck living with it. Eventually we'll have a vaccine and,hopefully, some form of heard immumity.

I honestly think the resultant economic upheaval thats just starting will be worse and longer lasting for the general public than the virus. I'm becoming concerned that the government start to pump out incredible amounts of fiat money to try and prop up the system.

harryball, Kinda what I figured, but you know what happens when you assume. Given that I work in an ER in direct patient care, I would've noticed.

I said I tend to believe, since that same info also was in some tv programs. That is probably a fake news...
If you are a professional and certainly know, than it was not a China virus back in August-September, and it was what you said (previously known strains...).

Harryball,
Also, there are different strains in different countries. It is mutating...
