re: Why did the task force advise AGAINST a quarantine of the NYC area? - thetempleowl
First off, depopulating NYC temporarily is a good thing. It will help the hospitals not become overloaded. Also, for this thing to slow down, more people need to get it which means more people need to be exposed. I think this is actually what we should be doing. Depopulating major cities i...

re: H - thetempleowl
I hope you get over it soon. I think a lot of doctors are careful about who they write these prescriptions for because they don't want to get sued if something bad happens And if you get better the vast majority of the time, not a lot of pressure to use it....

re: I’m I the only one who thinks this is fake and overblown as frick? - thetempleowl
I know it's not fake. At this point as far as being overblown depends on whom you listen. This thing is incredibly contagious. And it can swamp the healthcare system. We are not prepared for this yet. I think the shut down is helpful for getting everything geared up. We can reassess on...

re: This board and 'risk homeostasis' - thetempleowl
Interesting thoughts. I think I am moderately concerned about this virus. In a sense, I don't think it is extremely deadly, and may be close to an order of magnitude lower than what it is. I think we have underestimated its rate of infection just as we have overestimated its mortality. My ...

re: This thing is far more widespread, and far less deadly than we “know” now - thetempleowl
This thing is something we need to get a handle on. There growth rate is likely higher than suggested and the death rate this is lower. But you decrease one number and increase the other number and it could still mean same number of deaths. New York needs to keep doing what they are doing. ...

Well many of us are locked up in our places of residence, and I figured people could use a bit of a laugh. So, most people know the famous comedies, but what movie would you recommend for people who need a pick me up? I'll return with a few, but let's get some recommendations for people to wat...
