    Looks like the virus has mutated into a stronger stogner version, now immune to cleanliness and grain alcohol

    Apparently Nashville has 200+ cases.. I remember seeing a tweet a while back how they were bragging about still having a concert downtown and the virus wasn't gonna stop them

    hopefully those fools learned their lesson

    how hard is it to not be a complete ****ing idiot redneck for a month?

    Well looks like Prince Charles now has corona. Karl Anthony Towns the Center for the Twolves, his mom has it and had to be put into a medically forced coma cause her lungs kept collapsing and the fever would never break. Just wanted to add these names to the Corona book as ppl think they are untouchable and wont get it.

    Coronavirus Update (Live): 445,958 Cases and 19,791 Deaths from COVID-19 Virus Outbreak - Worldometer

    While numbers are still increasing, I just wanted to post the current stats of global and US numbers.

    Currently in the US, appx 5000 out of 1Million contract the virus. 2 per 1 million unfortunately pass away.

    totally get the quarantines I hope the mathematicians can figure out when that is no longer necessary but with these kind of numbers, it feels like we gone overkill on a lot of mitigating policies. I could see the foreign travel and cruise lines but the general travel seems excessive.

    by the time this is all over and done with, there will only he a lot of hypothetical arguments about what was or was not necessary and the actual numbers vs potential numbers.

    Who cares?
    This only panders to the mass hysteria. Having a “famous person” get it changes nothing nor should it.
    Just like every other disease out there, including much more deadly diseases, i hope the best, but life has to continue with known risks. Take care of yourself, help police people you catch not washing their hands and force people that have symptoms (of any illness, not just corona) to stay away from anything that promotes spreading and to seek medical attention.

    I think America cares? Just like how we forgot how fragile life is until Kobe Bryant died. Its weird how normal ppl live life with no regards until celebrities die or get sick and then everything goes into focus. U may not be that way but a high % of Americans do for whatever reason

    this virus is not just like every other disease, it spreads extremely easily and is undetectable for up to 14 days. if we just all go back to work and let people get over it potentially millions could die.

    simply washing your hands and social distancing isnt enough, thats exactly how we got to this point and we are just ramping up.

    I guess a high % of Americans are dumb.
    I get losing beloved figures, death is a shame, but if there life is altered by freak accidents or illnesses they were already doing their part to avoid/prevent spreading, then a celebrity death should have no real bearing.
    If anything, I would say that the death isn’t what motivates people to change, it’s much more on the positive influence while alive.

    I seriously doubt anyone changed the way they handle this entire situation based on knowing Tom Hanks was quarantined for it. it just gives people crap to talk about and post memes.
