Disinfection notes:
Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses with a protective fat layer. Disinfectants tear apart that fat layer which makes coronaviruses “fairly wimpy” compared to noroviruses and other common viruses that have a more robust protein shell.
Dilute bleach solutions and the virus both decay under UV light but bleach remains a common effective disinfectant for outdoor surfaces. So does alcohol >70% .

This is some serious sh*t boys and girls, stay home. practice social distancing and realise that there is significant asymptomatic community transmission taking place. behave like everyone is carrying the virus. it is going to get significantly worse....

All of California is on a mandatory 'shelter at home'. This includes no gathering of non-family members of more than 6 persons. This includes houses of worship.
Coming Soon;
Rationing; odd numbered addresses shop on odd numbered days, even on even.
Curfew; Sunset to Sunrise. Anyone caught outside their home during curfew will be shot on sight.
Draft; anyone with prior military experience and an honorable discharge will report at a designated military base to be announced.
Internment Camps; all persons aged 65 and older will be required to report to a designated military base or other internment camp in order to protect them from the virus and society can get back to business as usual.
Scrip; All US paper currency will no longer be recognized as legal tender after 2 weeks. Dollars must be exchanged for new money at the exchange rate of $100 old dollars for 1 new dollar.
Internment Camps, Stage 2; All persons who are without employment are to be considered non-essential, just like their old job. They will be required to report to a designated facility to be announced. All personal ID and banking information will be collected and funds applied to offset the expense to feed and clothe these 'Despicables'.

anyone care to add to these predictions?

Question;
India has a billion more people than USA, with much less medical technology available, but as of today, they only have 206 cases and 5 deaths from covid-19. What's up with that? Factual or is this being stifled?
2nd day of zero new cases in Wuhan, China, the epicenter. According to the Chinese. Do you believe them?

"Currently, only those who have come from affected areas overseas or have been in contact with such persons are being tested. A high-level expert committee set up by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has suggested that all with atypical pneumonia and close contacts of Covid-19-positive persons be tested. The health ministry is said to be considering this proposal."

India is not testing the general population at this time, even if they have symptoms .....

If anyone believe the Chinese govt, then they believe that Hillary is an honest politician, or in the tooth fairy, etc.
You need Chinese propaganda like a hole in the head, this was IMO a planed test as the virus is a mix of 2 strands or as they said a mutation between bat & snake corona. That is more than a bit hard to believe.

lets not get toooo wacky here.... there isn't much testing going on anywhere.... asymptomatic community transmission is occurring at a steady rate and going under reported in most countries... there is only slowing this down with no real possibility of stopping it. extreme social isolation will be the only way to slow the spread and it will become mandatory. best to hope to be in the 80% that don't get to sick otherwise you are in deep trouble.

Can I be fined if my cats are caught wasting a precious yet limited national resource?
They actually did this at Christmas time, not now.
No wonder forum doesn't have a CAT THREAD.

All joking aside the perceived need to panic may be largely overstated as potential for effective medications has been mostly dismissed by those preachinf doom and gloom.
For example Stanford University's recent trial had all 40 test subjects virologically cured in 6 days with a protocal of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin in 6 days.

Sure there is lacking clinical trials but all the anecdotal evidence is positive so far. No shortage of volunteers when you look at the other societal costs.

We need to get America back to work or many of your favorite business will not be able to re-open.

always the optimist fred, a very good character quality... the game is in its first inning, anything can happen at this point. big money is making money and capitalism won't die anytime soon. the big players took a lot of money out of the market as it went down.

Since we are pretty much all on lock down anyway: Wouldn't it be better if they exposed all the young healthy folks while monitoring them? Once they are all cleared at about 14 days they won't spread it and can't catch it. That would knock the social impact of it way down and only those apt to catch it would still have to be careful.
