    How fatal a given disease is in an average person with access to the best most appropriate care isn't the issue here. The issue is how badly are hospitals going to get flooded. That will determine how many people die as a result of this disease - not the inherent lethality of the virus itself.

    scary thing is this is the # *with* the Trump admin trying to rig the stats favorably, imploring states to not report or underreport their claims.

    Is your County still doing take-out to go food from restaurants?

    I've been eating at home and working alone in office for a while now. Really craving sushi, but obviously that might not be the safest move. Thinking of grabbing sushi and eating it outside somewhere tonight.

    Maybe as millions are losing their jobs and thousands are dying, this type of buffoonery will cause some folks to rethink their news sources

    Yes we are under stay at home directive but restaurants are still open for takeout as are food trucks. Not sure I’d do sushi but I’m sure it should be fine. I feel more comfortable with something that’s been cooked

    I have limited myself to carry out once a week. I’m trying to only eat hot foods when I do order out though. I’ve convinced myself the heat kills the virus. Lalala I can’t hear anyone who says I am being dumb.

    It's almost as the WH admin didnt disseminate the information they had to local government officials because pretending this wasnt a big issue for political reasons was more important than being proactive.

    Sure but the examples given in the article include Italy and Wuhan, both of whom’s hospital systems were / are overwhelmed. Claims death rates could be far lower even in stressed systems.

    Point of posting was not to advocate for different policies, but to express incredulity at a bunch of very smart people calling into question a fundamental building block of the analysis (denominator).

    Either way, doesn’t sound like anyone knows why the discrepancy exists and we won’t know actual until after the act.

    David Johnson, the Ole Miss writer for 247, is intubated and in ICU. His wife also has it, but is at home. Their son, Eli, who plays guard/center at Ole Miss is being told he "probably" has it, but hat not been tested. Terrible news.

    No I didn’t. I said that people who made $12/hr in the past have little incentive to go back to work during this crises given the terms of the stimulus package - that’s a fact

    David covers Ole Miss football and his son is our starting Center. He is very popular among the big money power brokers and donors in the Ole Miss community, meaning rich Ole Miss donors will most certainly be aware of what is happening to him. The pressure from him being in ICU for an extended period of time (or dying) will definitely put pressure on Tate Reeves to lockdown the state and Reeves is a spineless fuck who should be terrified of what will happen if he upsets those people. He's certainly following what is going on with David as he would be the most famous person with the state to contract Covid-19. Here's hoping he reads the tea leaves and this forces his hand. I think it will.

    It’s a tough issue because of access to work. Don’t agree with it completely because it’s not always easy to get a job. But maybe it pushes people to seek our work?

    Able-bodied adults without dependents living in areas with less than a 10% unemployment rate will have to prove 20 hours of work a week in order to receive consistent benefits, which can be difficult, experts say, for people who lack access to job opportunities or are not receiving enough hours of work per week.
