      "JUST IN: Journalist covering Trump trip to Florida tests positive for coronavirus"
      “JUST IN: Just days after covering President Trump's visit to Florida last week, a member of the press tested positive for COVID-19. According to reports, the journalist was in a crowded room with the president and was in close proximity to dozens of members of the press as well as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and other lawmakers.”

          Remind them the plethora of laws that keep people healthy- air and water pollution, work safety, crash safety, etc- that are exactly what mask mandates are.
          At least one was sent home, no pay, unexcused absence. Rumors that I have yet to confirm are some people have actually quit over this. This is in a plant with lots of welding going on so they spend a portion of the day with their entire heads covered anyway (when welding they do not need to have any additional face coverings on, just their required PPE). These are decent paying jobs with decent benefits. And yet some are dumb enough to quit over something like this? Those people cannot be reached with appeals to the logic of wearing a mask, nor even to the obligation that the employer is under due to the mandate set forth by the governor. In other words they are every bit like the typical republican or trump supporter -- completely lost, unreasonable babies and a waste of anyone's time to try to reason with.

            It would be pretty funny if a future potential employer called your company, and the reply to that.

            There's no principle to this, just stupidity. Especially since it's a private company- who are fully in their rights to add protection for safety.

            Good time to quit, too- when the economy is down and a lot of people need jobs.

              • Not sure if this has been posted before. Nice link to map instead of having to scroll. Has hot spot data and if you scroll down where the States are on reopening.

                • I finding it both infuriating and interesting that people can't see that this sorta, kinda, people getting sick, lots dying, infections, etc way of opening is do devastating for the economy. There's zero consumer confidence, especially as I expect many predict a new shut down- so people are not spending money. They all say "what about the economy" - as if people are just going to return to 100% just because.

                  That's not happening, and not going to happen. Plenty of restaurants are open around here- even with streets closed and lots of outdoor seating. And I still see that most are not running anywhere near their capacity. Stores are open, but not many people are going in. People are not spending money. Period.

                  Somehow, this is superior than 4 more weeks of real shut down until late June.

                  We are not spending much money, and I know a lot of other people who are just like us. Yea, there are others who are willing to risk it- but there's no way that places are running at 100%, making barely 5% margins on good days.

                  Forcing this open isn't going to make this better. What IS going to happen is that people will see infections getting worse, people dying- and they will keep not spending money. Seems like the backlash for rushing is going to be worse than doing it right.

                    Let's put #COVID19 into some historical context and try to give it some perspective

                    Thanks to @BallouxFrancois, who pointed out that COVID is most similar to the 1957 Asian Flu Pandemic, I did some research

                    It made me realize how completely unremarkable this whole crisis is

                    • People sure are spending money in my town. It's like the virus doesn't exist.

                      If it weren't for the governor's orders limiting capacity, every place in town would be packed full.
                      What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

                          Let's look at the numbers IFR: -1957 Flu: 0.67% -SARC CoV-2: 0.65% (CDC number) In terms of deaths/1M UK looks about the same If you use an estimate of 220K final death toll for US it looks the same World statistics are going to look different unless Asia joins the party

                            It's not nearly 100%. And how long can companies sustain that?

                            • I'm curious to see what happens come September once the weather turns and many areas lose the ability to have outdoor seating... I would think that they should be screaming like hell to get people on board now instead of ignoring the mask mandates...
                              It's never too early to start the Pre-game festivities
