  2. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    That doesn't even make sense considering the vast majority of stories produced by the media are creating panic, not preventing it. Not to mention the media is one thing but what you're talking about would require a massive cover up the likes of which the world has NEVER seen before with literally every single government on the planet, the CDC, the WHO, and every major health official on the planet lying about the numbers...it's just not realistic to think that would happen.
  3. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    The major issue with only using closed cases is we have no idea how many cases have actually recovered, total cases represents the number confirmed by testing but not everyone who is tested and confirmed to have the virus is monitored. Most people take the test, it comes back positive and they are sent home to get better and I highly highly doubt most of them are ever really monitored or checked up on unless they require hospitalization, the health systems have too much on their plate right now to pay attention to mild cases. Those numbers may have some merit being applied to cases that require hospitalization because those are the majority of cases that are being "closed" but it is in no way an accurate estimation of all cases for the reasons above.

    Totally messed that up and for some reason can't fix it but you get the idea.
  5. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    I went to Catholic Mass a couple times as a kid (my mom's side of the family is Irish Catholic) It freaked me out and I would never go again, lol

  7. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/8-strains-coronavirus-circling-globe-182338255.html 8 strains currently identified which might initially sound bad but luckily the virus mutates very slowly so the strains are all very similar and have the same symptoms, none are more lethal than any other and they are saying it's highly unlikely a more lethal mutation happens.
  8. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Certainly a far cry from the 2.2 million deaths in America that the Doom and gloom crowd had said early on. Although to be fair I think that was their projection if no steps were taken to slow it down.

  10. 1990s Comedy - Official FF BMET (Poll + Tie Breaker)

    Man I feel bad... In Bruges would have won the 2000s poll had I remembered to vote. Never in my life would I have thought my vote would have ever been so sorely missed in something.
  11. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Ehh... It's both good and bad. Guarantee you the panic wouldn't have been anywhere near as bad as we're seeing without the internet and social media.
  12. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Just seems like the whole social distancing thing is probably easier around here than it would be if I still lived in the Detroit area.
  13. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Yeah I'm glad I live in a smaller rural town now.
  14. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    It'll be a while yet until that happens in the U.S, some locations will hit that mark a lot sooner than others but nationally it's going to take some time... Drawback to being such a massive country.
