COVID-19 coronavirus

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

UK Ch5 news has just reported that "Trump remains on the job"

That awful vision has really put me off my tea.

And more importantly, now Sadio Mane has gone positive too.

Irony is doing great job.
But i'm far from wishing him something bad, he's already in the highest risk group, so maybe going through this will make him change his mind, for the benefit of other Usaniars. :wink:

Hope all is fine Herr Quiff.

Teacher-educator of my daughter most likely has it (again). Our Lil one went to school for few critical days and there is a risk that she might got this. So, with pain of our hearts, we have to separate from each other for few days - she's gonna be with my Mum that already went through this and has immune respons - then i'll take my Lil one to make test. Until then we hope she's didn't catch it.

So can I burden you guys with some personal s**t. Again.

I’ve been searching the web for answers for hours and my head hurts, there’s no good advice to be found on this subject. Maybe you guys have an opinion or can point me to somewhere that does

My Mrs has begun traveling for work again and has another two trips booked for this month. First time was a short trip to Colorado and the airline didn’t book any middle seats to keep some distance. Last week she went to Texas and the airline overbooked (as usual) and she was shoulder to shoulder with a complete stranger for hours. This really bothered me and I’ve been sleeping in a separate bed and generally distancing myself and wearing a mask around the house, wiping down surfaces constantly.

Tonight she said she wanted to go out to a restaurant for my sons birthday tomorrow, to which I scoffed. It’s like she is just pretending this whole thing is over and life is normal. I just flat out disagreed. She told me I should move out as she feels like a pariah and generally read me the riot act. I tried to explain calmly that this was my comfort level and my health and nothing personal.

You lot seem rational reasonable sentient life forms. Am I over reacting? Is this unreasonable behavior?

Where can I get some salient advice on this sort of thing. The Internet is a random mess of useless information. Where does one normally turn for advice in times like these?

Sorry for the dump. Help me Obe Goth Kenobi you’re my only hope

One doesn't want to appear cynical but can we be sure that Trump actually has Covid-19

It could be a ploy to engender sympathy and more votes or it could be a mistake by his doctors. after all they got it wrong when they declared him unfit for Vietnam.

Indeed.

It’s bizarre that we even have to wonder this.

Trump’s administration have so normalised fake news, misinformation and pure straight up lies that it is genuinely hard to know anymore.

My mother told me in phone that she is sure he is faking it to get sympathy for him and the elections...
She maybe didn;t go to a univercity but she is ace in judging people and their motives with unbelievable percentage of accuracy :lol: :lol:
Wish the best to all those who indeed suffer from this disease for recovery, ;D

No. Trump's not faking it and this is how I know:

They didn't want to release it. They were found out. They got caught. A journalist broke the story.

There was a super-spreader event at the announcement in the Rose Garden for Amy Coney Barrett.

There’s a page buried in their website that outlines the parties who worked on the app.

The team has staff from Accenture, Alan Turing Institute, NHS Digital, NHSx, Oxford University, VMware Pivotal Lab and Zuhlke Engineering. As the Government’s lead technical authority on cyber security, the National Cyber Security Centre has also supported in an advisory role.
and

https://fullfact.org/health/Serco-test-and-trace/

fullfact.org seem to think the Serco allegation was sparked by a Russia Today
It’s unclear where this claim first originated, although Russia Today did claim Serco were behind the app in May.
make of that what you will.

this is a pretty extensive overview of how it works (or not, as the case may be)

I'm high risk, I take a drug that suppresses my immune system, five years ago I had pneumonia. I'm still going to work. When I was furloughed my mental health took a massive hit. If your fear of a disease is about to ruin your entire life then you may have to reassess your priorities.
Remember

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

Was talking online with an old mate first thing this morning about Trump's idiotic behaviour last night on his return to the White House. His (probably) self applied fake tan on his face to conceal his pale complexion didn't help. All it did was remind us of how the old live American telly used to look in Europe in the early 70's because of the different PAL v NTSC systems. America, please regain some sense and defeat Trump in November.

What on earth were those tiny perspex shields about in the Vice-President's debate this morning? Do American aerosol virus particles only travel in arrow straight lines? At least the audience were made to mask up.
