It is now mandatory to wear a mask In stores in NYC. I had one on today to pick up some items, and I felt like I couldn’t breath.

I also hate the fact that we can’t actually enjoy shopping for items in the store now.
I try to inhale through my nose and exhale through my mouth. That helped with my recent grocery shopping trip. My glasses fog up like crazy and I feel like I’m breathing inside of a steam room when I inhale and exhale through my nose alone.

Eta: As you exhale blow out slowly as if you are blowing to cool something off and things will feel a little cooler under the mask.

AMC isn’t opening their theaters until mid July because the movie studios have all pulled their big movies until that date.

It really doesn’t matter when each state opens its businesses. Unless we all ignore the rona and go back to our pre-pandemic behavior then these businesses won’t make money. This is why there is an organized campaign to convince people that it is fine to go back to normal.

I wear my reading glasses out sometimes and I noticed the fog. Glad I’m not the only one experiencing this.

Never heard of a flu / virus causing strokes. #manmade?
I believe it is man made or tailored in a lab or released from that lab that is within walking distance of that Market.
The Wuhan lab is just too close to that market. What a coincidence.

China has also said they cant confirm or deny that the virus may have came from the lab. They still havent found how this particular virus jumped to humans. Whatever
I still believe it came from that lab whether it is man made or not.

What would China’s motive be for creating a virus that harmed their own economy?
China is profiting so much from this epidemic. At first I scoffed at the thought that China, Intentionally infected it's own. I thought they were targeted. They were easy targets.
But then as the time went own, I saw how the US and the world is ordering supplies, tests, etc from them, that I had a lightbulb moment. While the world is infected, China is chilling and back to business making money. The few thousands of deaths they had and the world has is collateral damage. There are people and businesses that have made millions and billions off of this.
In the grand scheme of things the few deaths doesn't matter.


And how did this hair board and others know we were going to have a recession this year?

There are a few viruses associated with stroke. In my speciality (babies and kiddos) its CMV and varicella we worry about. HIV in adults.
Flu increases your risk for stroke by 40%.
Stroke is caused by a blockage in the blood vessels leading to head and neck. Any cardiovascular complication increases your risk for stroke. so with this virus causing some victims to form clots that then travel to the brain it's not surprising you'd get stroke as a result.

My thoughts on this is if they made it then they should know how to cure it. They would stand to make far more money with the cure/vaccine than anyone else because the race is on for the cure or vaccibe. They also had to spend millions if not billions of dollars to shut down and treat their citizens.

No system that we know of! But thanks for this.
I think the technology is advanced enough that it can be done. I dont believe the reports that says it isnt man made. I think there are people that dedicate their lives to finding cures and creating diseases and this is no different. That is their job to study, create, replicate and manipulate viruses and bacteria, test then study the reaction to it.

They cant come out with a vaccine too quickly because people are going to go aha and question how they got the vaccine so quickly when everyone one knows it takes years to make one. I am not standing firmly by that it was man made but I do believe it came from that lab and was intentionally spread.

It takes money to make money. I dont put anything past what man will do to make money.

Could it be the actual inflammatory process that causes the stroke?

I visited the irs site when it first went live to provide my bank account info for the relief funds but I got the 'status not available' message. I tried it again today and it let me proceed. Not sure how they decide who or when you can enter your info but it's worth another try if you couldn't do it before.

For those with glasses that fog when wearing masks. Hopefully one of these tips works: https://www.nytimes.com/article/glasses-fog-wearing-mask-coronavirus.html

But I am LOL at the last line in the article about fogging being less of an issue as summer approaches. I live in South Florida. It's 90 degrees outside and my glasses were still fogging up, lol. Maybe it was the temperature contrast between air conditioned buildings and my warm breath from the mask, lol.

This is not a comment in response to the protests. I think those people are idiots like their leader.

But regarding unemployment, I personally know at least 20 people in 2 different states who haven't received a dime from unemployment yet despite putting in applications over a month ago. Some still have not even been able to complete the application despite NUMEROUS attempts because the sites keep crashing or being taken offline for "maintenance." This whole system is a joke. The little stimulus that some got are going towards basic living expenses, but of course it will run out.
People who are laid off are collecting higher than normal unemployment benefits. In some cases the unemployment benefits are higher than the wages that the laid off employees would receive by working.

I am in NY, which seems to be on a decline of infections. There was a big influx of travel nurses that arrived this month so it really helped the nurse to patient ratios so the staff isnt overwhelmed. We do have ppe and we can get a new mask every shift but advised to wear one for 2-3 days. We also get a new face shield each shift if needed but are told the face shields last a long time and to just clean them with bleach wipes.

Black people really need to be afraid of getting sick and needing hospitalization. One travel nurse gave a black male patient a bath cuz she said he smelled. Not many nurses or techs will do that; especially due to covid.
A black obese woman walked in the hospital last month with good skin, a month later she has deep pressure sores across her butt and inside her cheeks. She had three strikes against her being covid+, obese, and black. :( early 40's and I dont think she will make it.

The baby doctors dont know what they are doing because they just graduated and now have to run a hospital. Orders they give are wrong and experienced nurses have to hurry and correct them, but there are new nurses too who dont know so......

A nurse from Washington said their rates went down tremendously so he is in NY too. A nurse from Michigan said Detroit wasnt hiring for crisis pay and she told them yall need to be so she is here.
There is officialy a nurse from every state that came to this hospital to help.

^^^ Honestly I believe that Cristina Coumo’s comments are also partly to blame about this as well. When she revealed her treatment regimen for the virus it also involved a bath with Clorox. I get it- she’s rich and can do whatever she wants and that the information on her blog states that it came from a doctor but the rich and famous really need to be careful when they open their mouths.

Sadly the state of Illinois is reporting that there has been a rise in calls to Poison Control following the debased remarks about disinfectant. I really can’t believe someone would listen to that Ignoramus!
This is hard to believe. I only saw a little of the clip that he said something about treatment with disinfectants. You mean to tell me people started ingesting the disinfectant of their choice after that? Why is the poison control helping these people?

Cristina Cuomo? Wife to news anchor Chris Cuomo? The man who is isolated in his basement doing news while suffering from C19? The one whose fever returned after being free of fever for 60 hours and was sooo close to meeting the 72 hour recommendation? Why is this really happening? Are we part of theater?

Is this really enough? I know guidelines have changed with covid-19 but wouldn't healthcare professionals normally change masks per patient with something this infectious?

Yep, if the patient is the one infected, then anyone entering wears PPE just for that situation. If the hospital is still out, they can ask neighboring hospitals or neighboring states. If that fails they can order plenty from China. China owns nearly 5% of the U.S. and makes many of our products including foods.

I thought the same thing! I said to myself, watch people using 2 cups of bleach instead of the half cup she uses.

She is also proof that you can be taking supplements and building your immune system and still get this virus.

No no no miss. Understand that nutrient-densed foods, vitamins and supplements do not prevent getting the virus.
