Of course every case is different but I have read more and more stories of the drugs being effective. That would be excellent news if this works on everyone with the Covid-19.
Great News !! 👍🏻

They don't like the word "obese," they prefer "portly."

Harvard study finds COVID-19 fatality rate far lower than WHO suggests.

Time to get our citizens back to work folks.
Give it a week or two, stick with the Easter launch and tell the elderly and people with pre-existing conditions they’re quarantined for another 30 days in an abundance of caution. Limit travel overseas.

The Diamond Princess and Grand Princess had over 800 positive Covid-19 cases with 10 deaths so far. This is a rate above 1%. The demographics are skewed older but also wealthier with access to good health care (and ventilators). Approximately 15% of the Covid-19 positives require hospitalization and 5% become critical. Most in critical condition will have long term complications if they survive. I will go out on a limb and say human life is more important than the economy or even my job.

I agree human life is more important than any job. I don’t think any rational being would argue any different?
That being said there comes an inflection point to where more people will die of economic catastrophe than the virus. Just how long should we wait to start up the economy? Time will tell, but for now let’s wait out the 2 weeks and see if the social distancing method had any impact as well as buy time for our medical facilities to accommodate the influx. After that then I believe that the cure is worse than the disease.

This is going to be a year long slog that will require social distancing to lessen and slow the pandemic. We won't be done in two weeks or two months. We will be finished when there is a vaccine or we have herd immunity.

I hear the preference is “person of size.”
