Just wanted to drop a note to you all hoping that none of you are suffering directly as a result of all of this COVID-19 insanity.

Tonight at midnight they are closing our state borders to neighbouring states in our country for the first time since 1918. After closing all of the tourism industry, all pubs, restaurant dining, etc millions here are suddenly without work and businesses.

Sparing a thought for all those in hardship at the moment and hopeful that it doesn't get awful before it gets better.

Cheers and stay safe everyone.

Welcome to the new normal.

The conspiracy theorists are out in force claiming all sorts of bollocks.

The "authorities" are out in force claiming different sorts of bollocks.

And the end result is it will be hard times for everyone, regardless of what they choose to believe.

I saw the movie "Contagion" a few years ago and the parallels to what is happening now are amazing. It's like we are all starring in the 2020 remake.

It will all end in tears.

The way Sweden decided to choose looks very promising. Might give quite a lot of confirmed cases maybe the same or somewhat lower number of deaths for the firt wave but should prevent Sweden from suffering the second wave which is usually much more dangerous.

That is how the Great Depression #2 looks like.

I still see idiots who think the quarantine is ridiculous and people overblow it.

I don't think they realize that the amount of people who recover includes those which need intensive care, which are a lot. They look at numbers and see 90% recover, so they think all of them can easily recover at home.

Now imagine what happens if the health care system is overloaded with these idiots trying to recover because they didn't respect the quarantine? Sounds like death rate will suddenly soar.

Can we send them to Mars? They can infect anyone they want there.

It's good to be among such a level headed group.

Today is the first day of my state's (Idaho) lockdown. It is quite rural and thankfully no deaths from this, yet. Feels kind of helpless being told the best thing to do is nothing. When many people around you die it creates an atmosphere of despair and uncertainty. I hope that with greater sharing of data and research we can at least reduce the uncertainty.

Many countries have closed all their borders and ports.

I was scheduled to finish my secondment and return soon but those flights have been cancelled. Now it is impossible for me to find a route back in the near future. There are no transit ports that will allow me to pass through. I've booked a flight 3 months hence, but they could well be cancelled also, or the transit ports might remain closed, or the world might stop spinning or something. Yuck.
