Re: How should we deal with the coronavirus pandemic?

Simple scatterplots: pic3.png Are we going to San Marino via Italy? BTW, many people claim that they had symptoms of Covid-19 last winter, around Dec-Jan. I though the same. I had a heavy flu in that period, different than usual. I ended up troubled - my immune system got knocked out of the orbit. ...

Re: How should we deal with the coronavirus pandemic?

I think you'd lost and find your yourself in biodynamic farming, trackstar.

I'm still breathing. Looking for colourful booby pictures for my new bedroom:

Re: How should we deal with the coronavirus pandemic?

Fine, shut down the whole f***king world for two weeks. But at some point, you have to let people get on with their lives. Car crashes kill 37,000 each year in the US. Sure, you could prevent those by telling everyone to stop driving. Is that where we are? The car crashes will continue to kill abou...

I meant that practically everyone can deliver it to you. They recommend the vulnerable ones to self isolate.

Re: How should we deal with the coronavirus pandemic?

Go vegan and rewild the planet. All those viruses are animal-borne and humans contract them by eating the animals. At the same time, we are the main vertebrate biomass on this planet - an easy hit. Unless we introduce the two changes, the viruses will continue to specialise in killing humans.
