First the masks. They cannot filter out particles as small as this virus and moisture created from exalations will cause partices to stick to mask. They are suitable to contain virus in people who have it. Respirators word.
Economic community is banginging its head into walls to " stimulate " economy which in fact is a rich get richer policy.
The unreality that virus will be held in check by business closures : truth is numbers of people will still have virus and numbers will wxplode when people in NYC metro area go back to work
Parts of the country are so far from NYC or California and are so relatvely sparcely populatted it will take several months for the problem to get to the areas and even then the problems will be far leass. here will be two Americas, heavily infected and not so bad.
The Street will be made aware in the coming months that the population in densely populated areas will be very sick and production will drop substantially. The current rise is a near term bubble that smart money will take advantage of.
Media is centered on ventilators and masks in what is basically sensationalized reporting. The real problem is Manhattan and mutations.
Businesses and industry may well soon open in Manhattan ( everybody there is going to get sick anyway ) but if there is any good thinking by governments tens of thousands of New Jersey commuters will not be allowed to enter Manhattan causing big problems for Jersey
The general public is basically clueless about what's actually happening. It expects that a few weeks without employment and outside recreation will fix the problem only to find the situation was just slowed down and the underlying infections are still there waiting to explode.
Politicans will grandstand and in reality will just be sources of yak and platitudes as the virus spreads.
" Medical experts " don't know dick : why the Spanish flu and bubonic plague just died out, why is Germany different from Italy , think they can manage anything ?
As long as the there is not severe panic buying I'm a spectator. Really looking forward to the $600 government check.
Trump's address to the nation , when it ever comes, will be as uplifting as a bag of used cat litter.
Politically everybody will take sides about if businesses and industry should remain open. which will be nothing more than choosing on which side of the fence is the grass browner.
Compared to the absurdity of Trump as president this whole business is mostly a matter of how badly it hits you and yours.

For some reason people have stopped eating cheesecake which has caused the Cheesecake Factory to send letters to landlords that the company will no longer pay rent until the crisis is over, Company has 37,000 employees had cash reserves of about two hundred million dollars.
Stories about micro activities such as proprietors boarding up stores have entered the news stream. Media apparently chosen not to clue in the clueless about area and house quarantines.

Most probable delay in setting up house quarantine in NYC will be to stretch out the mess for an additional two months on top of the two needed for doing what needs to be done.
Saw a screwball online " news " site which devoted two hours to some UK nut explaining why current restrictions due to virus are a plot by the global oness elite to get the masses to conform to regulated activities. Guy had very pleasing measured , clear way of speaking which allowed me to stay with him for about 15 minutes in which everything that came out of his mouth was a mistruth.
Can't get my head around the reality that all this fuss has been caused by a mild flu that has not caused any harm to anyone or anything in my world. Right now possible mutation from India is the biggest threat
I never watch TV news anymore about anything , not even PBS with its liberal slant. Best way to go is sample this and that story from the net as this is a political, sociological, regional, local, national, international, business, supply chain and medical merry go round. Yesterday saw my first person in a full biological hazard suit. I've spent more than a bit of time in grocery stores in the past ten days even talked to a few of the patrons for this or that reason...mass man does not have a clue what's going on which is the great lull , similar to UK's phony war in '39 -'40, before the quarantines set in and middle America waits to see if " The East " gives its problem to them.
Everyday jibberjabber from this politico or that is worthless.

Just watched Trump's last briefing which was full of references to how much money is going to be spent on the war against the " invisible enemy " Also lots of time alloted to how much he has improved the nation's ability to fight problems such as coronavirus.
Seems these reporters are whipped dogs. Nobody brought up the fact that Trump dismantled the department that was to be on top of this sort of outbreak chop chop.
Not any discussion about when state lockdowns might end or that numbers are dramatically increasing in NY NJ. Only a vague remark that Trump does not like people going from high infection areas to low infection areas. Not a thing about NY NJ possible quarantines. Pretty much a throw taxpayer's money at the problem and Trump takes credit for it. Centered on trying to prevent deaths rather than control of spread of virus. India and possible mutations , forget it. . In true Trump style indicated that NYC mayor, NY and NJ govs thought what he has done is great without any references. A complete bamboozeler.

Now Jersey is now over 11K cases a . Trump will issue order that prohibits people in NY NJ from leaving the state.In this area matters are now out of control with regard to containment. Governor of N J. expects numbers to peak in 2 - 3 weeks, WHY ?

First the masks. They cannot filter out particles as small as this virus and moisture created from exalations will cause partices to stick to mask. They are suitable to contain virus in people who have it. Respirators word.
Economic community is banginging its head into walls to " stimulate " economy which in fact is a rich get richer policy.
The unreality that virus will be held in check by business closures : truth is numbers of people will still have virus and numbers will wxplode when people in NYC metro area go back to work
Parts of the country are so far from NYC or California and are so relatvely sparcely populatted it will take several months for the problem to get to the areas and even then the problems will be far leass. here will be two Americas, heavily infected and not so bad.
The Street will be made aware in the coming months that the population in densely populated areas will be very sick and production will drop substantially. The current rise is a near term bubble that smart money will take advantage of.
Media is centered on ventilators and masks in what is basically sensationalized reporting. The real problem is Manhattan and mutations.
Businesses and industry may well soon open in Manhattan ( everybody there is going to get sick anyway ) but if there is any good thinking by governments tens of thousands of New Jersey commuters will not be allowed to enter Manhattan causing big problems for Jersey
The general public is basically clueless about what's actually happening. It expects that a few weeks without employment and outside recreation will fix the problem only to find the situation was just slowed down and the underlying infections are still there waiting to explode.
Politicans will grandstand and in reality will just be sources of yak and platitudes as the virus spreads.

By then the number of recorded infection in NY and NJ will probably be 3 x the present number which is probably 1/3 to 1/2 of real figure. It's not that there are so many people sick, it's that they all spread the illness.
Remarkably Trump's stooge head doc is mouthing off that " he's pretty certain ", anyone who gets the disease cannot be reinfected. Without any science to show that.
More and more this group of Republican pirates remind me of Hitler's inner circle after Stalingrad.
I mostly only value the data , primarily from NY/NJ and Italy.

Remarkably Trump's stooge head doc is mouthing off that " he's pretty certain ", anyone who gets the disease cannot be reinfected. Without any science to show that.
More and more this group of Republican pirates remind me of Hitler's inner circle after Stalingrad.
I mostly only value the data , primarily from NY/NJ and Italy.
Saw a poll that has over 50% of Americans thinking Easter will be about right to get back to normal. !!!
Reaction to N. J infection cases can be seen as indication of BS reaction to the problem. Two weeks ago the number was about zero, five days ago about 4,000 today over 13, 000. Gov is a happy guy that numbers for the last three days have plateaued at over 2,000 a day. He cites that as indication that social distancing is working and that the worst is over.
Reality : getting a virus test in NY or NJ is a very big deal. I believe there's a cost and waits on line. Most likely real number is 30, 000 plus. That's no big deal as far as sick people are concerned but every person, even the barely sick or asymtomatic ones,is a carrier/transmitter. Again the masks are at best partially effective to stop getting the disease. Have not seen anything about if hospitalized patients wear masks or not.
Dumbasses cite period of illness being about 3 weeks so problem will go away ? If you go to a supermarket there will be scores or hundreds of people there and lines. Excellent circumstance to spread especially by virus left on this or that, really nobody wears gloves, maybe 15 % wear masks. Italy's been on lockdown for three weeks with poor results.
I've rethought the whole quarantine at home idea ...it won't fly. Not only will there be legal problems but now the problem is the heavily infected areas in the NYC metro area, not just Manhattan, which contains 15 million people. This is not China , can't be done.
So why should virus drop to levels to allow a try to get back to normal ? and what do you think will happen if normal is back on line...wishful thinking is the government's only ammunition.
Perfect line for any appearance by Trump from now on : Sigourney Weaver to Ian Holm in Alien, " And you let it in. " I live in a very fluid area, yesterday's news is too old to be a reference point. Joe Blow and family will be getting cranky in a bit , Trump would love to set 'em loose ASAP . From an interest point of view this is America at its best. Yesterday I actually was getting spooked . Today it seems more like the mess that got here.

Will probably start wearing the respirator next shopping trip. Have not seen anyone with a respirator. Clueless folk and their paper masks. Explosion will come when announcement of home quarantine is made, at that time NYC and Northern NJ will be lumped together and treated as one entity. Current restrictions will stay in place as the data turns more and more grim but population will ignore the realities. Probably won't be isolation of NYC, Jersey and NY will get the news at the same time. When will this happen ? maybe three weeks, rumblings will be heard from sources about the government moving food into the area. People may stampede to grocery stores but they will be closed or wiped out and then close. Great example of denial, can't happen here. If I had a bigger fridge I'd have another 6 weeks worth of food .
Trump has backed off on his quarantine of New York and New Jersey, probably because the numbers of people leaving the area is still relatively small and he'd be looking at a Federal v. states showdown. Headlines now are should Trump gp ahead with planned Easter restart of US economy !!!. By then the number of recorded infection in NY and NJ will probably be 3 x the present number which is probably 1/3 to 1/2 of real figure. It's not that there are so many people sick, it's that they all spread the illness.
Remarkably Trump's stooge head doc is mouthing off that " he's pretty certain ", anyone who gets the disease cannot be reinfected. Without any science to show that.
More and more this group of Republican pirates remind me of Hitler's inner circle after Stalingrad.
I mostly only value the data , primarily from NY/NJ and Italy.
Saw a poll that has over 50% of Americans thinking Easter will be about right to get back to normal. !!!
Reaction to N. J infection cases can be seen as indication of BS reaction to the problem. Two weeks ago the number was about zero, five days ago about 4,000 today over 13, 000. Gov is a happy guy that numbers for the last three days have plateaued at over 2,000 a day. He cites that as indication that social distancing is working and that the worst is over.
Reality : getting a virus test in NY or NJ is a very big deal. I believe there's a cost and waits on line. Most likely real number is 30, 000 plus. That's no big deal as far as sick people are concerned but every person, even the barely sick or asymtomatic ones,is a carrier/transmitter. Again the masks are at best partially effective to stop getting the disease. Have not seen anything about if hospitalized patients wear masks or not.
Dumbasses cite period of illness being about 3 weeks so problem will go away ? If you go to a supermarket there will be scores or hundreds of people there and lines. Excellent circumstance to spread especially by virus left on this or that, really nobody wears gloves, maybe 15 % wear masks. Italy's been on lockdown for three weeks with poor results.
I've rethought the whole quarantine at home idea ...it won't fly. Not only will there be legal problems but now the problem is the heavily infected areas in the NYC metro area, not just Manhattan, which contains 15 million people. This is not China , can't be done.
So why should virus drop to levels to allow a try to get back to normal ? and what do you think will happen if normal is back on line...wishful thinking is the government's only ammunition.
Perfect line for any appearance by Trump from now on : Sigourney Weaver to Ian Holm in Alien, " And you let it in. " I live in a very fluid area, yesterday's news is too old to be a reference point. Joe Blow and family will be getting cranky in a bit , Trump would love to set 'em loose ASAP . From an interest point of view this is America at its best. Yesterday I actually was getting spooked . Today it seems more like the mess that got here.
More from my journal of the plague year :
67 year old guy who went on line to refer to the virus danger as a media hoax went to visit his old momma in a nursing home...died of the virus
The lack of and difficulties in getting, tested are probably a Trump plot to keep numbers low
Trump backers are viewing Biden's suggestion to have a nation wide shut down dim witted...tho it would not be enough this shows that Trumpians are as demented as he
Given what's been going on now looks like an everybody gets sick situation is a good possibility. Don't see any more panic buying Stocks may stay high until it's accepted that the economy will be deflated due to constant illness of the employed.
One day the additional increase in the national debt will come home to roost but with the way finance has been handled for decades now it's just monopoly money.
As has been said about Italy...there is no plan B
You'd think that with Italy at this time getting the booby prize the faithful might have their belief weakened but like the Jews after the Holocaust they are OK with it just as Trumperians are staying with their man. . He is one hell of liar and street fighter . Future may have Trump and Biden neck and neck with America deep in a long depression. There are so many piece in this mosaic it is far fuking out the way Nixon and the counter culture never really was. This is theater with the invisible enemy replacing the silent majority as its theme.
