  1. Martial Law seems likely due to the response to Covid-19 being planned by the DoD and “Intelligence” agencies.
    It’s going to get ugly.

  2. Well,not sure what is worse,the virus or the reactions,especially from govt.

    I feel we may(more then likely)lose the net,if so,best of luck to all of us and hopefully see you all on the other side.

  3. Contrary to media panic and socialists agendas, the US is actually better positioned on this issue than many other countries, especially European countries.

    We have more critical care hospital beds per capita than most other countries – even if we have fewer total hospital beds per capita than some other countries. When this disease becomes a real issue for a patient, they often end up in the ICU.

    • Losing medical staff to the disease is a major issue, largely due to a lack of PPE and the fact that people who set protocols for this stuff still seem to be standing around on their neckties. Beds don’t do you any good without the staff to work them.

    • On that note, I saw that much of the UK coverage focused on the impact that Brexit might have on COVID-19s spread… Hopefully journalists are particularly susceptible to it?

  4. I’m telling you… This crap has been here, and is already endemic. I’ll lay long odds on that assertion. What we’re seeing is the result of media feeding frenzy and finally getting a damn test for it.

    I’m not the only one who thinks so, either:

    What I think started killing people was it getting into the right setting, and maybe a mutation or two in the virus. Before that, the deaths would have vanished into the background noise.

    I know I got exposed to something, back in early January, and the family has been fighting it off for the last two months. Symptoms match, and since this is a tourist town with heavy winter influx from Asia… Yeah.

    • I half think that I’ve already had it, in the last week. Odd sickness, fever and ache without much in the way of other symptoms.
