First Boris get its, now his Health Minister has it, and at the same time, they have told staff + other ministers, they only need to self isolate if they start showing symptom!
Everyone is about to get infected that way (if they arnt already).

Talk about a poor job Boris has done. Even if you aren't showing symptoms, you can still pass it on to other people. 

Did you see the Health ministor, take his hand to his nose, and blow it out, and then wipe his hands (with snot) on his pants?
Or pass on his coffee cup, just after haveing caughed? That poor aid of his, is without a doubt also infected.

Plus their wakeing shoulder to shoulder (not 6-feet part), with him being infected and caughing, in a place where people are likely to pass by and possbily get those droplets he just caughed out.  This is the health minister of the country!

*edit: supposedy their chief medical officer got it too.... lmao wth.

I can't imagine how many people they have infected.

Can't wait for the great depression, then we can see how the coronavirus death toll compares to the increase in suicide, heart attacks from stress, crime, etc. This is the best time to buy a gun to protect yourself and your family.

If a person feels the need to protect themselves with a deadly weapon it might be time to invest that money instead in a move to a 1st world country.

Yes, because crime doesn't exist in first world countries.

Let's hope it gets under control well before we hit 1 million.

Peak is still more than 3-4 weeks out, going by what the scientists are saying, for new york alone.
Rest of the US spread isnt as bad, so thats even futherout there.

Not to mention rest of the world.  Hopefully we manage that before the 10million infected mark.

First too 100,000 confirmed infected race?

If you where a betting man, would you put it on italy?
or does the week headstart of the quantine, slow it enough, that america has a chance to catch up?
China is soooo close, but things seem to have come to a crawl there, their runner is unlikely to be first across the finish line.

Looks like I was right, 5-6 days ago.

5days ago:
Italy ~60,000
USA ~33,000
China ~80,000

today:
Italy ~86,000
USA ~100,000
China ~81,000

Or a gun for one of your depressed, out of work family members to turn on themselves and commit that suicide you were talking about.

Oh, it does exist. But apparently not in such a capacity that they have to live in constant fear for their lives if they don't arm themselves with deadly force.

I juts got back in from my regular run on the trails.

The Corona effect: Normally I see about 1 or 2 people in total on a Friday, today 4 motocross bikes, 12 quad bikes, about 16 people walking, 9 dogs. Good job Canada, closing the parks, fields and GRCA trails, bringing people closer together on what's left! I even crossed the river to get to the always deserted empty side (wading through, water still freezing but not up much further than my knees) but there were just as many cross bikes and quad bikes on that side. (They can easily cross the river as well of course)

I did also see up to 20 deer, couple very large birds of prey and thousands of toads. Or rather heard them chirping in all the melting the ponds when the quad bikes were silent for a bit. At least people were not walking in large groups anymore and staying away from others. I know that forest like the back of my hand so stayed on the smaller trails and game trails, no problem avoiding people so far. But damn, go out for some relaxation, nearly half the time nothing but echoing screams of quad bike engines. Cheap gas effect I guess.

This is in a small town, what do people in large cities do?
