It shouldn't be a big deal but with a large number of people unable to afford healthcare, and the anti vax crowd growing there's a small chance that this could be interesting.

Not sure if this article has been posted or not, but I think it does a good job of outlining what policymakers should be aiming for with their strategies to combat the pandemic. Basically, it breaks the strategy into two phases... the Hammer and the Dance. The Hammer is when you lock everything down to get R (the transmission rate) as close to 0 as possible. These are the severe lockdowns, and would last 3-7 weeks. The earlier you implement them, the less severe they need to be and the quicker you can remove them. Then comes the dance where you try to keep R as close to 1 as possible (just underneath 1). This is where the importance of testing comes in, you can tailor your response based on data.

It also explains that the extensive testing South Korea was able to quickly implement is the reason their "Hammer" phase was not very severe and looks to be short. They were able to jump on it quickly and get R close to 0 through contact tracing without having to lock people in their homes.

Did they have disinfectant wipes? Those are the first thing I’m running low on - seem to be harder to find than TP.
Set you alert here (https://www.zoolert.com/), via email or text, warning though its constant alerts and if you respond quick enough you can make your purchase. The disinfectant wipes and poop paper are the ones I receive the most and have scored on both via Amazon and Wal-Mart.

No lay persons on the altar. Just two priests whose hands were washed. The Eucharist was placed on the tongue to kneeling recipients at the communion rail. It's the cleanest and safest way possible.
Safest does not mean safe.

Unless the priest was washing his hands after each person or that not a single person who received communion was infected, it's highly unlikely his fingertips at the very least remained contagion free. Just putting your hands that close to an open mouth has a decent chance of leading to contamination of the hand.

When Gov Andrew Cuomo spoke with his team today on that panel at the news conference, there were 2 things that he said that were impressive:

He asked for all retired/not currently working doctors, physician assistants, nurses, respiratory therapists etc to come to New York to help them out during this crisis. 40 THOUSAND health care providers responded!!! He said, “that is a beautiful thing.” I agree.

Then the Gov started to worry about the mental health of the NY citizens and asked for mental health workers to help out & they set up a hot line for anyone who needs to, to call. Over 6 THOUSAND mental health workers volunteered to help out.

Now THAT is what America is all about! 👍🇺🇸🙏🏻

Some big banks agree to suspend mortgage payments for Californians. Includes 200 smaller state banks and credit unions.

Checked with my mortgage company for some help. All they offered to do was an up to 3 month forebearance with the total due after the period was up. If $7000 is am issue now, $21000 will be an issue in three months smh

Unfortunately, that is also what America is currently all about.

Your mortgage is $7000 a month? What’s your house worth a couple million?
