Anyways, I'm here hunkering down like you wouldn't believe, even to the extent that there was a gigantic fire in my neighboring city of Pawtucket, which would have been clearly visible to me had I taken a certain bus route, one of whose stops is an easy ten-minute walk from my apartment. Yet I refused to take that bus due to my concern for the public health emergency.

And I must here inform you of one of the most ill-advised (unręd in Old English (for those of you sufficiently proficient in Old English to comprehend the full force of that word!)) reactions to the virus of which I have yet heard, that being the fact of Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design having ordered the evacuation of their schools' dormitories! When I last ventured forth from my apartment to shop for foodstuffs, I saw girls carrying the boxes they'd just bought from a hardware store, apparently to pack their few college-girl possessions in order to go back home to Mom and Pop, wherever they might be! This is completely ludicrous, as, had they not yet contracted the virus, remaining in their relatively sheltered dormitories would have kept them safe, whereas, had they already contracted the virus, sending them back to their homes all over the country and the world would merely spread the virus to areas possibly not yet infected!


Sheesh!

I'm starting to feel a bit uneasy.


When I see the news/instastories from my pals in Bratislava, there is an admirable level of discipline with people, everyone prefers to stay indoors, and if needed, they wear facemasks or scarves. Schools closed, bars closed, fitnesscenters closed, everything as it should be.


But here in Switzerland? Nobody gives a flying FUCK. I am unlucky enough that my roomate is a bar owner and every night works in a bar downstairs. Swiss government passed a regulation that only bars/cafes with attendance up to 50 people can be open. But how the hell is this logical? Be it 25 or 12 or 5 or 60 or 7000 people together, the virus can spread.



I even can't get out this shithole now. Fortunately we can be on home office, so it's good, but I need my groceries and stuff + the flat can be contaminated if the roommate is a carrier.


Well, I guess, this will be a lesson for humanity. Stay safe, my friends.

so since my last post here on 11th., where we had 10 cases confirmed, it went up to 54 cases (most of them have travel anamnesis if not all). today is what, 15th.? still good ratio on 5 mil. inhabitants. strict rules applied now. grounded flights, borders shut, 14 days mandatory quarantine once coming back from abroad, pretty much empty streets. still working from office, half of my colleagues working from home, we should swap next week. most of the people took it responsibly and not hanging around unless really needed. it seems like bye bye to Lee Ranaldo's gig next month in Austria. Im not sure whats the story with my trip to Scotland in May or Primavera Sound in Barcelona in June. hope it will be over by then, but u never know. Spain starting to be something similar to Italy, well not yet, but good few cases confirmed.

2nd death confirmed today here in vienna. shops, restaurants, bars etc. closed - grocery stores, drugstores still open. Police supposed to control people on streets by tomorrow. government telling people to stay home and absolutetly minimize social contacts.

I'll work for another couple a days at the closed restaurant to preserve all the fresh food we still got (drink all the open wines)... but mostly home isolation here. it's wicked.

Slavo, take care... Switzerland seems to have crazy numbers of new infections right now..

Just checked for South Dakota.


"As of March 15, there are nine coronavirus cases in South Dakota."


"More than 325 tests have come back with negative results."


So at least the people who felt need and reason to get tested, for the most part, are coming back clean from this specific case.


Obviously doesn't mean it's gone/not here, just potentially the wrong people getting checked.

The Trump administration has offered a German medical company “large sums of money” for exclusive access to a Covid-19 vaccine, German media have reported.

The German government is trying to fight off what it sees as an aggressive takeover bid by the US, the broadsheet Die Welt reports, citing German government circles.

The US president had offered the Tübingen-based biopharmaceutical company CureVac “large sums of money” to gain exclusive access to their work, wrote Die Welt.


According to an anonymous source quoted in the newspaper, Trump was doing everything to secure a vaccine against the coronavirus for the US, “but for the US only”.

The German government was reportedly offering its own financial incentives for the vaccine to stay in the country.

When approached about the report by the Guardian, the German health ministry would only confirm the accuracy of the quotes attributed to one of its spokespersons in the article.

“The federal government is very interested in vaccines and antiviral agents against the novel coronavirus being developed in Germany and Europe,” the spokesperson quoted in the original article had said. “In this regard the government is in an intensive exchange with the company CureVac.”

The German health ministry spokesperson declined the opportunity to correct any inaccuracies in Die Welt’s account.

With its headquarters in the south-western German city of Tübingen, CureVac also has sites in Frankfurt and Boston in the US. Linked with the German health ministry, it works closely with the Paul Ehrlich Institute, a research institution and medical regulatory body that is subordinate to the German health ministry.




On 11 March, CureVac released a statement that its CEO, the US citizen Daniel Menichella, was unexpectedly leaving the firm and would be replaced by the company’s founder, Ingmar Hoerr.

At the start of the month, Menichella was invited to the White House in Washington to discuss strategy for the rapid development and production of a coronavirus vaccine with Trump, the vice-president, Mike Pence, and members of the White House coronavirus task force.

The White House has been contacted for comment.

Of course they have

Schools are now closing too over here, so are sports clubs and bars and restaurants. And as of tonight
coffeeshops as well. Which led to long queues everywhere. The top picture in that article is my local shop.

Bars were still open here but already closed in Belgium, so many Belgians came to party last night in our southern cities.

Restaurants are closed, but home delivery is still possible, my New York Pizza is on its way

Stay safe y'all!

The shut down continues. After cancelling all activities involving a 5000 people crowd, after lowering the level to events of 100 or more people, it's every cultural activity that has been shut down.

Yesterday the prime minister said: all that ain't necessary will be closed.

Banks... bakeries, food suppliers, supermarkets, chemists can open. Restaurants are closed. The impact will be huge on them. Sent support to a couple of pizzerias in small towns. The owner of the one that sets up gigs in his place, hopes he'll be allowed to deliver. But I doubt it.
Restaurants have food supplies that will be wasted. One way of supporting would be to trade with them to help them face a quarantine, I've read.
Prudence asked for.
Yet...
The government didn't stop this day's city hall elections. And what do we have? In Rennes (220 000 people), abstention rose to 60%... What does that mean?

im ready to hunker down for about 3 months. i have a holy trinity of coconut oil, protein powder, and vitamin supplements lololol. i mean, if the shit hits the fan (which i don’t think it will) i got the basic blocks covered and can go keto.

and oh yeah, if you’re worried about asspaper (you shouldn’t) maybe look into getting yourself a wudu bottle. thanks, islam!
