    Good idea. I ended up changing the option from pickup to delivery. :)

    Dewine’s press conference was really good today. There was an environmental engineer and epidemiologist from OSU, Mark Weir, who participated and gave tips about what people and businesses can do to minimize transmission of C19 particularly as states reopen businesses. Weir starts at at about 13:00 or 14:00.

    Man...it's time Donald Trump step down. He's ridiculous.

    Here in Toronto...My sister's co-worker died last week from Corona virus. The memorial was on facebook live... they both work at a nursing home...they're fighting for better protection. Unfortunately, my sister has to work...well she feels pretty strongly about her patients. We pray for her safety every day.

    As for these doctor's they been misdiagnosing black women for a long time if at all. I've been more involved in looking after my own health. These practitioners are jokers.

    Valuable information in this thread.

    Stay safe ladies...

    A med spa in Michigan was raided today by the FBI for offering high dose intravenous vitamin c therapy as a "covid-19 treatment." I'm using quotes because it doesn't read that way though I recognize mentioning a disease in any of your media is dicey territory. It sounds like they were offering it to support healthy immune systems. It was free to first responders and they were working with others who couldn't afford it.

    Having Trump as president while he mismanages everything and enables his cronies and the 1% to enrich themselves while we literally die hasn’t shaken people awake enough to unite to get rid of him. Why should this?

    Just got an email from LA fitness. They will no longer open their Georgia locations on May 1st. I’m glad someone in their corporate or regional offices came to their senses.

    It's maladaptive and it prevents you from doing what you need to to solve a problem or adequately take care of yourself such as gathering information, self-advocacy, etc.

    Did he really suggest injecting disinfectant into the body to battle the virus??? :confused: ***
    Doesn't he realize that he's already caused deaths by suggesting the hydroxychloroquine???

    ***(eta: NVM, I just saw the re-broadcast on the news *facepalm*)

    I usually don't watch the press briefings but I couldn't turn away yesterday. He really did say that mess about injecting disinfectants to kill the virus.

    Oooooh, tell me how you use it!


    ETA I disagree that she shouldn't have shared. You don't have to do everything she did! But certain supplements are within reach of most of us....

    Remember all the pets that sickened and died?

    There was a massive move to raw and made on America pet food after that.

    I also seem to remember babies dying in China due to melamine in the formula

    This made me think of something. People like 45 mentioning these things to possibly "thin the herd". People get desperate and think to use Lysol, Clorox, Dettol, quick-made vaccine, etc to speed up illness and death (I suppose).

    At this point, is the stay-in-place still to help the hospital not become overwhelmed or to delay illness until the Fall? Are people worried about dying or just going outside with people?

    Truth be told hospitals still don’t have enough PPE. Despite what 45 said we are reusing PPE or not using it on patients who previously were supposed to be treated with gowns are now having to be treated in scrubs and a mask.

    Also hospitals are trying to get supplies so that they can test for COVID in house and get definitive results with hours not days. That takes time. First you can’t just take a box and open it up and start testing. You have to validate it which takes days not hours. Then manufacturers are not able to keep up with demand so shipments are slow coming. So you may get a shipment of 20 tests rather than the 200 you ordered.

    Now we are trying to avoid mass gatherings where carriers are infecting large groups of individuals without healthcare being able to positively identify COVID cases.

    Its coming back this fall. I think that is a given. We just hope we have enough in place that we don’t have to do a second shutdown. We will have a stockpile of PPE and testing supplies and the community will be used to social distancing. Hopefully things will go more smoothly for part 2.
