  1. I Was Completely Wrong About a More Deadly Second Wave

    Coronavirus
    I was watching Dr Siegle on Fox News today. Turns out the doctors and hospitals in the New York area are reporting less sevier cases of Covid-19. People are still getting the disease, but they are far more likely to recover without issue.
  2. 100,000 Coronavirus Dead by The End of May?

    Coronavirus
    This is a prediction thread. At the current average Coronavirus death rates of around 2,000 dead a day, I suspect we will have 100,000 Coronavirus dead by the end of May. We recently passed 62,000+ dead. With around 2,000 dying daily, we will hit 100,000 in around 19 days. Rather than...

  4. Why the obsession with Coronavirus testing?

    Coronavirus

    Coronavirus
    I'm not familiar with the process of how the "water system" in the United States works. But do you think the coronavirus pandemic would ever cause the water in our houses to stop running? Or do you think we will always have access to tap water through out this entire thing?
  15. Prep shortfall / Lessons Learned / Hindsight ***MERGED HERE***

    Coronavirus
    With all the rumblings coming from top medical professionals today, it sounds like a national or regional quarantine is possible. If you had an opportunity to go to the grocery store one last time before state sponsored quarantine, what would you buy that would fit into an SUV or pickup?
