  1. 3,000 deaths in China is a damned lie. Otherwise, interesting information...
  2. That's been the experience at my hospital. Very underwhelming so far. I'm hopeful that mine and others like it are using this time to prepare for a possible surge of patients in the near future. People only going to the ER in case of real emergencies is a good thing though for sure... that should help if/when it does get bad here.
  3. As for the subject of re-opening the economy... it's a no-brainer. We have to. Millions of people will starve if we throw ourselves head first into an economic depression. The economy collapsing around us will do much more harm than the virus itself if we're not smart about this. Having said that, we should embrace social distancing and the like at least through the end of April, and start re-opening parts of the economy one piece at at a time. And make no mistake--it doesn't matter when we re-open the economy----Trump could keep the whole country closed down for two years and Democrats will still say it wasn't for long enough. At some point we will have to weigh the consequences of one poison (the virus) versus another (the depression). Yeah, let's be smart about slowing the spread for now... but it can't go on forever.
  4. Um, well, that so far been the case with the hospital that I'm working at. The ER has been unusually slow and a lot of people are actually being flexed off and having their hours cut right now because volume is low. Part of that is because most surgeries and outpatient procedures have been cancelled, and a lot of people are afraid to go to the hospital right now unless they absolutely need to. So I'm sure there are plenty of hospitals like mine in rural areas and suburbs where it hasn't hit badly yet. But my personal experience and other examples like it shouldn't be be intepreted to mean that there aren't places being wrecked by the virus. It's obviously a big problem in New York City and other big cities and urban areas, and there are still lots of areas where it hasn't hit badly yet, but that will most likely change in the near future. It will get worse before it gets better and not all parts of the country are on the same timeline when it comes to when the virus will peak and so on and so forth.
  5. I’ve only heard of the Nevada governor doing it, which we talked about in the last page. Governor Cuomo is actually taking the opposite approach and procuring tens of thousands of doses of the anti-malaria drugs to treat patients. New York also approved the use of ventilator splitting today to accommodate the surge of patients in hospitals. Hopefully more states follow their lead, will be a shame if more governors act out like the miserable little tyrant in Nevada.
  6. How do I apply to get my vacation money —err I mean stimulus check
  7. Football is entertaining , I’ve loved the Falcons ever since I was 5 years old and watched the games with my dad, and I have an emotional attachment to my favorite team and enjoy watching them win games. The lows make the highs even better. But at the end of the day, I figure money changing hands, corrupt officiating, and the involvement of certain players/coaches ultimately decides who goes to the Super Bowl and wins. I think the Falcons probably went to the Super Bowl in 2016 because Artie gave the NFL that new stadium.
  8. I’m kind of cynical about the NFL and deep down inside I kind of think it’s all rigged, especially when it comes to guys like Brady. The other statements are just bold predictions that’ll make me look smart if they wound up being right.
