This Orange Idiot! This would be funny if folks lives weren't hanging in the balance.
He’s so disrespectful to Yamiche and April Ryan. I always say there are no words to adequately express the depths of disdain for him.I despise this man. He's also disrespectful to Yamiche Alcindor.
I’m sure Melania is just as nasty and vile as he is. Birds of a feather. I don’t know why she gets the poor victim card except she is white and supposedly attractive.I would love to be there and say... "Well your a nasty human being .. and i'm able to answer a question professionally if asked!" Thank goodness for Freedom of Speech.
Wth.. Melania!!! ..how the hell do you put up with this.
Thank you, you are sweet. I appreciate it.Can I just say thank you @Chicoro for being a beautiful beacon of light in this. Your words really are so encouraging in this thread. I swear I can feel your positive energy as if I'm in the room with you.
And I do agree with your assessment about the current scale of this. Due to the lack of large scale testing, I truly believe all countries have under diagnosed the virus. Not on purpose or with malicious intent (at least I hope not) but due to the fact that there aren't enough tests and therefore they are selecting who to test (money>symptoms in this case). The fact that so many NBA players are testing positive with no symptoms is telling. Based on the criteria of which patients are being listed as high risk, they should be excluded (young men, not many underlying health conditions, excellent immune system) but they have it. And the fact that it takes so long for the test results to come back, you have to track contact back probably 3-4 weeks. For a regular person, that's easily 100 people from just general passing. A celeb or person in power, 10x more.
If wide scale testing with quick result turnaround becomes available, we really are going to see this ramp up. There are too many symptomatic people showing up at the ER and being negative for flu to say otherwise. At this point, having symptoms and a negative flu test should automatically have the test done.
That's a shame.
That's the Spirit!meditating, praying, isolating, 1000 mg vitamin c daily, 3000 if feeling ill, multi vit daily, today hair spa day, TV, reading, crafts, etc I'm staying home as long as I can, and my vitamin regimen keeps me away from the flu without a flu shot, for at least 5 years with kids in school, and sick people around me at work and at church. praying over everyone I hope we can get though this as soon as possible. So far my I feel calm, and I trust my gut.
I think this move is going to save a lot of lives. He made a good decision. The weekend is coming. You can exhale a little bit in a few more hours.Well Cuomo has made the call. All non-essentials need to stay home beginning Sunday afternoon. That includes my DH. So now he will be home with the children and I beginning on Monday. Lawd help us!
I'll keep working from home as long as I can. Now he can help with the homeschooling.
I keep saying how surreal this is. I think I'm operating on shock & adrenaline...just doing what I have to do to prepare for the worst.
Based on other countries, I'd say in a minimum of 2 weeks. That two weeks timing corresponds when you are most likely to see the biggest spikes in cases. Thus, I doubt it will be over in 2 weeks.Does anyone know when the lockdown is supposed to "end" in California?
Of course its subject to change - just curious if they are communicating an end date.
I cannot believe Italy has more deaths than china and we arent even sure if they are on the downside of this thing smh.
China is also ghetto with it.I think China likely has had more deaths than they reported. But, I can't substantiate that. It is merely conjecture on my part. Which boils down to plain old, my opinion.
Soon, they may not have a choice.China is also ghetto with it.
They have been snatching people off the streets (like physically), arresting those without masks and who were refusing to take one, or go home, yelling at people on loudspeakers who were not at least 6-10 feet apart, and really not letting people decide...they were enforcing it extremely strictly. They have cameras everywhere including facial recognition and patrollers strolling all day. I think that helped. Kinda like from those apocalyptic disaster movies...but they were not playing games.
In the US, people are still not taking it seriously at all.
Girl, I WISH I could have been a fly on the wall to witness THAT! I bet that ain't gone happen NO MO' in that office. They played the WRONG Sista'.Thank you.
Things settled down and all the wigs I snatched (professionally, w/ a twist) are back in place and getting it together. Today was much better.

Maria Tsvetkova, Polina Ivanova
MOSCOW (Reuters) - A reported sharp increase in pneumonia cases in the Russian capital and contradictory information around the issue is fuelling fears about the accuracy of official coronavirus data which remains much lower than many European countries.
Russia, which has a population of 144 million, has reported just 199 coronavirus cases and some doctors have questioned how far the official data reflects reality, given what they say is the patchy nature and quality of testing.
A sharp spike in pneumonia cases in Moscow, Russia’s biggest transport hub and a city with a population of around 13 million, has further raised doubts.
“I have a feeling they (the authorities) are lying to us,” said Anastasia Vasilyeva, head of Russia’s Doctor’s Alliance trade union.
The government says its statistics are accurate however, and President Vladimir Putin has complained that Russia is being targeted by fake news to sow panic.
Thanks for the intel, @caribeandiva !A man started talking to me while in line at Costco. He says he has friends high up in law enforcement. Apparently the national guard is being dispatched as we speak and the whole country will be on mandatory quarantine starting Sunday.
