Hey, my mind is made up, don’t confuse me with the facts Shocked Exclamation

Number of cases so far in the US: ~390,000
Number of cases of H1N1 (Swine flu) 10 years ago: take guess

~61 million, don’t believe me, look it up

Also check out Farrs law of epidemics
We might have overreacted a bit Question

Corona virus is way more deadly - the mortality rate is much higher.

H1n1 - 60.8 million cases with 12,469 deaths in the U.S.

Corona virus as of 4/6 - 364,836 with 10,801 deaths.

Summary - while H1N1 was lethal - only 12k deaths. Projections for Corona virus if we stay home - 100's of thousands die and probably more.
If we don't stay home - live normal lives - guessing that at least 60 million people would get infected with covid-19 and 3-6 million people would die in the U.S.

I don't know about you - but I'm staying home.

The reason that Oregon (and the USA) has so few deaths is because we are on lockdown and staying home.

If we relax the lockdown - people from all over the USA will flock to Oregon to kite, bike, ski, climb mt. hood, climb smith rock, fish the Deschutes, drink wine, swill beer, and pass the virus on to Oregonians (NO THANKS).

Hey some anonymous guy looked up some stuff on the internet, he MUST be right.

Seriously. As fucked up and partisan our politics has been and still is--all politicians, both the Republicans and the Democrats at fault--all of these marginally intelligent people finally agree on something. I'm tempted to take this shit seriously. Unless you think Trump, Pence, Pelosi, Schumer and Cuomo are conspiring to destroy our economy? No? Me neither.

"The reason that Oregon has so few deaths is because we are on lockdown and staying home."

We are "lucky" in that other states got hit much harder before us. We can see what happens if the virus runs unchecked. They were either unlucky, unprepared or did not institute stay at home in time. Looks like WA may be on the road to significant reductions in illness. Can we do this forever? No. Can we buy time now? Yes. Oregon has advanced warning. Oregon is acting IN FRONT of the wave vs being pounded into the sand by the wave. What is so difficult about this to understand?

I fail to understand why folks can't understand the implications of overwhelming hospitals. Just today they are talking about "temporarily burying the dead in Central Park" as the morgues are close to over whelmed.

I see several folks advocating for "herd immunity now. Get it over with"

Fine; you first

Sorry, it was supposed to be a joke, as in stirring the pot in the title. It’s not like I believe any of the reports are accurate enough to go out and flail around and ignore the problem.
Even my dog knows sit & stay.

This one is totally out of left field and connects a lot of possibly not connected random dots. Used to really like David Ickes shape shifting aliens controlling the world videos for a laugh. why wouldn't they do something like this if the world really is dying and humans are functionally extinct? Global dimming seems to not be not happening now, all the trade winds have died since the shutdown 3 weeks ago and 90 degree temperatures are nearly everyday. this could be the end for real.

That guesstimate is even worse than the doom porn 2M+ without intervention, 100-300,000 with distancing, revised down to what, 50,000? as of yesterday, by the same doomsayers including dr bobblehead who has been an engineer on the DC gravy train for 40 years, but somehow couldn’t get Reagan, Bush 1, Clinton, Bush 2, Obama, or Trump administrations, or the last 20 Congresses, to prepare for a pandemic.

I say lay off the doom porn, stay home, stay healthy and kite again.
As an aside I an not hurrying to order any more items direct from China Hong Kong Taiwan etc. Hope I can even get new kites I actually want in the next year without a thought to the CCP or wet markets and shoddy microbio labs.
Peace and love Twisted Evil
