Your healthcare system sucks. You really need a social catch net. There's no perfect system but you could do so much better. (the you is the USA, not you personally Huh?)


A good video on explaining how to flatten the curve can help us all. Going to be paying for it for years though.

I have to admit that the US health system has been way behind the rest of the worlds, I've heard this for many years.  There was a bit of hope when Trump announced a person recovered after receiving some medication  but I've heard nothing about this since.
  Very nice video that you put in, i'm not sure but I think the government predictions also include hospital beds needed, testing supplies needed, masks and other equipment and of course money needed.  There is also the high risk people like doctors and nurses, as well as police and firefighters.

President Trump has extended the social distancing from April 12 to  April 30 th.  He had a friend that was in a coma because of the virus and talked about body bags being loaded into large trucks in a New York neighborhood where he grew up.

I came across this video by John Oliver about the US virus response, I'll have to let the viewers decide how they feel about it.

I think It's easy to criticise any countries handling of Covid 19, they all have their own methods and "experts" there is no magic wand, everyone is learning as they go.

1st death in a care home in Brighton and Hove yesterday. I knew him too, was at a care home my missus works at until he moved. Like the Stranglers, heard him listening to Ratus. RIP Giuseppe/Joseph.

The next 2 weeks are going to be scary.

1,000 police officers in New York  died ( very large city on the eastern coast, high death rate) .  Even doctors are having problems following rules that keep changing over time like when to wear a mask and can be dismissed.  It seems the government is trying to reduce traveling and cars with out of state a plates are not allowed to go into neighboring states.

Things are going to get worse before they get better.

I've been asked to make some pretty tough decisions regarding my M&D in the care home, not going into details but wasn't easy. Their care home is clear of Covid 19 at the moment.

Getting a bit tired of the virus thing that is starting to get to a peak level, at the same time the government is trying to keep the economy a float using a stimulus package that is still not ready to handle the volume.  So we have a system set up to penalize people and business for not paying taxes, loans  ect and now we have to find a way to bypass that system.
  I've also heard that we will have another peak in the virus during the fall.

Our Prime Minister has been taken into ICU this evening. Gonna be out of action for a few weeks, assuming he pulls through.

I visited a relative and she wouldn't let me in but explained that she wasn't feeling good and her sister was in the hospital being tested for the virus and the results would be in in a few days time.  This is the the most direct contact I've had with the virus. I should pick up some type of mask which is recommended.
  I've learned the manufacturer of some drug used for the virus paid 1,000,000 for an audience with Trump and now Trump is recommending this drug.

It will come to this one day....

Such visits in my state can result in a fine, imprisonment or Both!

We have a strict "Stay at home" directive! Only trips to doctors, pharmacies or grocery stores are allowed (and prudent).

We told our kids and grandchild Not to come by or visit as we would not let them in. My wife has a weakened immune system and we are not about to risk catching anything from anyone.

Besides, I don't have an extra $5,000 lying around to pay the fine!
 Huh?

£30 fine here the last I heard.

I was able to go into town to the doctors to hand in my prescription order, there were very few people about. Most people are taking the advice and staying at home.

Much less traffic on the roads than there would usually be, just about every one is wearing some type of mask.

Am I the only one who feels like they're on a film set for 28 days later?

Over 25% of the world population is in lock down, weird times.
