Coronavirus thread

Post by Dr. Zoidberg » Fri Mar 13, 2020 2:48 am

Guess we should have a standalone thread for it.

Sanitizer might feel like a modern-day, scientific, and more clinical upgrade to soap. But I’m here to tell you that soap — all sorts of it: liquid, solid, honeysuckle-scented, the versions inexplicably only marketed to men or women — is a badass, and even more routinely effective than hand sanitizer. We should be excited to use it, as much as possible.

NBA and MLS are both cancelled until further notice. I'm sure the NHL is inching closer to doing the same thing.

Worst yet, most if not all St. Patrick's Day parades have been cancelled. Drink your green beer at home!

It will be very interesting to see what happens in the U.S., especially after all the political debates about Medicare For All. My opinion? It's not comforting to see that the federal government can't/won't release the number of people tested for COVID-19.

Can't we just give nods of acknowledgement from a distance?

The only logical explanation is people think they need a lot of toilet paper in case of a 2-week quarantine? We went to Costco two nights ago and they'd already started to ration people, I felt like a freak buying some but we were down to six or so rolls :olol: I'm waiting for someone to steal my bale of toilet paper out of my apartment's garage.

Some controversy on the name, if Wuhan Virus is racist, if Coronavirus is correct, if COVID-19 is annoying. Let's call it Tom Hanks Disease.
