Just wondering how many here actually know someone with it? Not the videos of stars and sports people claiming it I'm talking about someone you personally know and are in bad shape or died from it?

Friend of mine (age30) was in hospital for 12 days in bad shape, but was released a few days ago. Still needs to be in isolation for roughly 5 more weeks at home.

So many ignorants ignored and continue to ignore how important social distancing is and fighting the spread of the virus.

 

The worst part is this will wipe out their elders and not the future of their stupid DNA so going forward the stupidity will continue unless some changes are made.

I`m curious how they are really doing in the UK

 

I expected them to be badly hit like Italy (due to the spread) but so far it seems just normal.

Japan didnt use social distancing and is not spreading the virus.
Each stage of virus transmission demands a different stage of contigency strategy. 
Thats not ignorancy. Thats public health and epidemiology.

Japan mass deployed masks in one of the most impressive moves for anyone paying attention. Addressing the spread directly. These fuckers are so good at their outside the box shit as always.

 

China has also been pretty impressive after kinda fumbling the beginning of the game.

 

The shit I see in Iran is pure stupidity and they are paying for it.

That above didn`t make any sense on what I`m talking about.  Methinks Google translates failed yous on dis one.

Doesnt makes sense because you are ignorant.
And no, Japan is not avoiding the crisis because of masks. Its because they identify and isolate imported cases early on, decreasing the R0 of the virus.

My father and several of my friends have covid-19, but all of them are healthy and barely show any symptoms. They all work in healthcare.

Sure thing Mr Sports Physician and Mayor Troll, the guy that wraps my pulled groin is gonna know more than an educated board of experts at work.

 

You must be going crazy out of ankles to wrap and it is showing.

 

Try to stay positive or GTFO the thredads, I already warned you once little man.

I'm in day two of self isolation, more as a precaution though, as a bus and coach driver kind of going to be in the front line now that our profession has been classed in the keyworker category.

I'm a plumber and we've already been told that we will keep working through quarantine as 1st responders, several contractors or service professions (plumber, electrician, etc..) will continue to keep the country running even if there is a lockdown (and yes, this was how it was put to us by the government).  This kind of saddens me.. I was looking forward to a 2 week vacation, but bills gotta be paid.

 

I don't know anyone directly that has it, but it's seeming to spread fast here in the Houston area, so I'm sure I will soon.   Best wishes to recovery for any of you or your loved ones who are ill.

Yeah, the driver job is probably one of those high risk groups now, although i guess nothing compares to anyone in the medical profession.

Attended to 14 patients with respiratory symptoms today. My wife has severe asthma. 

Yes, being in the health care profession these days is being a roller coaster

That is basically where it started in Cyprus, 50% of the early cases were related to a tourist (from the UK) who visited the hospital, after that a large group of the doctors were infected.
