Last week:What are you referring to?
WASHINGTON (AP) — Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul says he was tested a week ago for the novel coronavirus, but continued working at the Capitol because he had no symptoms of the illness and believed it was “highly unlikely” he was sick. Paul also said he did not have direct contact with anyone who tested positive for the virus or was sick.
Paul announced Sunday that he had tested positive for the virus, becoming the first case of COVID-19 in the Senate and raising fears about further transmission of the virus among senators, including more than two dozen who are in their 70′s or 80′s.
Uggh, I get that economy is in the shitter but it will be much worse if we don't fucking stay the course for another two month.https://www.npr.org/2020/03/23/8191...-give-its-daily-update-on-coronavirus-efforts

It's also too vague.This kind of drastic action with little or no notice isn't helpful at this point. What happened to London being weeks ahead?
A colleague of mine was really ill with fever last week and went into the hospital one day. Even she wasn't tested. The doctors just said it was likely something viral. Multiply the figures youre seeing in the media by 10-100x.Last week:
I suppose this reaction is due to idiots spreading themselves all over the country at the weekend at the seaside and whatnot.
And he might still be on the low side of figures. Since China seems to have underreported asymptomatic infections, the real death rate might be closer to 0.5%, which would of course double the case of infected people to 1.2 million.^BTW, the Head of the Protezione Civile (the Governmental Agency in charge of coordinating the effort against Covid-19) announced yesterday what I had thought and put as a possibility (or, to be precise, as the higher end of the uncertainty bracket in calculating the number of infected people). he said that the infected people in Italy (most of whom asymptomatic) could be as high as 600.000. He basically took the number of deaths and considered it as the 1% death rate of the virus.
