At the time of his message (Friday the 13th!), despite Italy's all-borders-closed measure people from Lombardy were still coming into Switzerland freely and in considerable numbers, as the Swiss economy there depends heavily on Italian workforce.

And, of course, you remember Harry Limes' (Orson Welles) speech in 1949's The Third Man: "You know what the fellow said in Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had five hundred years of democracy and peace and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."

EDIT: Well, eventually they'd produce Kleenex/LiLiPUT, but it would take 30 more years.

Another early warning, fascinating if not overly relevant at this point because the human race will never learn shit:

Quote:
On January 8 this year, Washington Post reporters Gerry Shih and Lena Sun reported an outbreak of an "unidentified and possibly new viral disease in central China" that was sending alarms across Asia in advance of the Lunar New Year travel season.

Already, Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Thailand and the Philippines were contemplating quarantine zones and scanning travelers from China for "signs of fever or other pneumonia-like symptoms that may indicate a new disease possibly linked to a wild animal market in Wuhan."

Among the billion trillion e-mails I've received from artists cancelling their tours, Bikini Kill's has been the most significant - read and you'll see why:

Quote:
Statement from BK:

Bikini Kill regrets to announce that we're postponing our NW tour. We take the health and safety of our supporters, crew, and opening bands very seriously, and given the situation in Seattle as well as the lack of information about the actual infection rate of the surrounding areas, it doesn't make sense to us to go forward with any of the shows in the region. We're extremely disappointed, and look forward to rescheduling the dates as soon as we can. Refunds will be offered for all the shows.

Our shows in Olympia were going to benefit Interfaith Works Emergency Overnight Shelter who offer shelter and services to homeless people in Olympia, an especially vulnerable population who will be among those hardest hit by the impacts of this health crisis.

Please consider donating to them.


Statement from Interfaith Works:

Thank you to Bikini Kill for prioritizing community health with this difficult decision. Of course we are beyond disappointed, but understand that it is a necessity. The outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States has shone a bright and harsh light on the raging inequities in our healthcare system. All recommendations for communities to stay safe and healthy revolve around the ability to stay home (assumption of housing), wash hands (assumption of running water and hygiene supplies), and maintain separation from immunocompromised people who are over 50 (assumption that communal areas are a choice, not a necessity). For Interfaith Works, these recommendations are not based in reality and the people we serve every night are the people at the highest risk for infection and death. For people on the streets, in shelters, and in encampments there is very little guidance or priority about how to stay safe. Please keep us in your hearts and minds and consider a donation that you may have made at the shows because it will be the advocates, and the most marginalized who step up again and again to keep our communities safe when the safety net inevitably prioritizes those with resources above those without.

In Solidarity,
Interfaith Works

Donate Here to Interfaith Works Homeless Services

No. Many people can't go to work because their business is closed, but other people's jobs are very relevant in these situations such as healthcare, police, supermarkets. And schools and daycare are closed so they will need babysitters especially since it's not recommended to hand over their kids to the grandparents.

True - I guess I just need to bank on the slight overlap between schools being closed and workplaces not being.

I work at a Graduate School for Biomedical Sciences. So far, no panics, just smart precautions.

Thanks for catching that!

I’ve shared links from a doctor/disease person saying things could become more ominous, just passing along Dr. Drew’s thoughts that things might not be as bad. Personally, I hope Dr. Drew is correct.

My daughters school district canceled classes this week, so an extended Spring Break for her. If things do get worse, I look for Texas Governor Greg Abbot to postpones school into April.

obvious advice is obvious, but make sure you wear gloves, etc, at work?

we’re in full self-quarantine now. flatten the curve and what not.

breaking the daily routine into meditation, indoor workouts, reading, online work, cooking/eating/drinking(just a little), music, watching movies, etc.

Austria at 1016 infected and 3 deaths now. Growth per day at 26%, reproduction rate 1,44.
To put into perspective, only about 8500 tests done so far in total.

The Governor of Rhode Island has ordered all restaurants and bars in the state shut down for two weeks beginning tomorrow for all business excepting takeout, delivery, and drive-through. Any assemblies of more than 25 people are discouraged, and the Bishop has lifted the requirement for attendance at Sunday mass. There'll be another press conference around 4:00 this afternoon.

Canada closing its borders to anyone who isn't a citizen or permanent resident.

Louisiana governor has announced the state will be closing casinos, bars and movie theaters and limiting restaurants to take out or drive-thru only.

***************

The last coronavirus report from CDC was 41 deaths on March 13th.

The last I saw reported yesterday (Sunday, March 15) was around 60 deaths.

BREAKING: Monday, March 16, 2020 - U.S. death toll tops 70

With the panic we’re seeing reported by news media, you would have thought the death toll was THOUSANDS and climbing.

2000 deaths from coronavirus in Italy......the US has 3,000+ deaths a month from the ordinary flu.

3000 per month = 100 deaths per day from ordinary flu
74 deaths total in the United States from coronavirus

Is it reasonable to think America will reach 150-300 total deaths by Friday?

500 of our fellow Americans will have died by ordinary flu by then.

i cancelled some trainer sessions and im working out at home with elastic bands, swiss ball + bodyweight

why risk inadvertently spreading contagion when no tests are available and no vaccine in sight?

even if its not corona, spreading any disease will overwhelm healthcare facilities.

lets have a little patience... a jump rope and some pushups go a long way

if you really like intensity, get going with some tabata squats and bleed for 4 minutes

eta: heres a sample with corny 80s soundtrack included
