The only good thing in all of this is the potential for it to wipe out oxygen thieves like yourself. Thank you for bring a prime example of how the herd needs to be thinned.

Please enlighten us as to the alternative option that could have been done.
I mean it’s not like the worlds experts haven’t weighed in to influence current response, which most countries are doing. Hell, even the ones who initially scoffed(UK) now regret that. So, please I would love to know the better method approved by you :roll:

You don't have to be a dick about it. I was just asking.

I'll take that as you don't believe there was an alternative.

We don’t know if it has been effective yet. We’ll know in 2-3 weeks.

We will also not know how effective it is in comparison to a more lax approach.

This might give you an idea of how effective it is:

Right.

I thought the review in 6 mos comment was good. But people seem so certain now that this was the only course.

I was talking about measures across Canada. Of course isolating at the individual level will work. How are the whole of the measures function (not everybody is mandated to isolate)? It is unknown and we will not know until a statistically significant number of people are infected cases are closed. I think we’ll have a good idea in 2 weeks.

Well, we will be able to compare to some countries who were more lax or later to the party.
To altiplano,
I guess because I was on the side of the discussion above that what we are doing is needed and you keyboard raised your voice, ie; ONLY, I gave you a sarcastic response. When the general syntax of your sentence is normal and you capitalize one word, it’s the equivalent of raising your voice and didn’t come across as a question, more like a rhetorical question, especially when your next question asking if we thought it was effective.
It was implied you thought you had a better way, perhaps read your posts as if it’s your first time reading it before posting, it will save you some unwelcome responses.
Or maybe some people are just dicks, lol

My last update on the numbers was 9 days ago.

Sounds like a test kit as been developed in the US that will provide results in 5 - 15 minutes. I'm sure this will translate to a significant increase in case numbers, both positive AND recovered cases. The US have now taken the lead in total cases and with their slow response to this virus it stands to reason they're still weeks if not months away from getting a handle on this thing so we can expect the borders to remain closed for a while longer.

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

Numbers as of 11:30am ET.

Total Cases
885,689

Deaths
44,216

Recovered
185,226

Mild Condition
622,469 (95%)

Serious or Critical
33,778 (5%)

Most affected Countries

USA
189,886 (149,031 new cases in 9 days)

Italy
105,792 (41,865 new cases in 9 days)

Spain
102,136

China
81,554 (461 new cases in 9 days)

So the world officially breeched the 1,000,000 mark with Covid-19.

That means that after 5 months, 1 person in 7700 alive on Earth has it, or has already recovered from it. At this rate, even if it multiplies a few times, it'll be years yet before its makes its way through the population.

Don't expect life to return to normal anytime soon with Governments trying to isolate the entire population of the earth.

Are we ready for whats ahead economically? Are we prepared to even pay back the TRILLIONS its cost ---so far---? Most of us in badly affected industries might last 6-8 months, some far less.

I say islolate and protect the most vulnerable, meaning the sick and elderly, or those with underlying medical conditions......then send the "nearly immune" children back to school, and leave the rest of us (likely only 30% with identifiable symptoms) to call in sick with a dry-cough for a week or two if infected, and be done.

…..or we can keep going indefinitely with this budget destroying, industry wrecking, savings burning, retirement savings decimating, draconian police state insanity....

What they define as “mild” symptoms are actually pneumonia that do not require hospitalization. An infant died and young people also die. 1M people infected is from those that were. There are most likely a lot more than that.

Its nice to see that there are some comfortable with shutting down the planet for an indefined period for what most healthy people will experience as a dry-cough and a shortness of breath. Personally I'd trade having it for two weeks rather than lose my house.

Just my opinion though.

Nobody is "comfortable" shutting down the planet for anything, it's done because it is necessary to save millions of lives and avoid many other terrible consequences far larger than a temporary hit to the economy. While you personally might be willing to risk death rather than lose your house, you thankfully do not speak for any of the other 7 billion people on the planet.

What you fail to understand is that the hit to the economy will bring another serious sanitary crisis that will be responsible for more deaths than the virus itself, there is a point of non return and the gouvernements will have to decide accordingly. I just read an interesting article about it written by a french strategic scientist with specific numbers: let’s see how these 7 billion people will react when there is no more money in their pockets...
