    It looks like a real broadcaster rather than some ridiculous site. I don't speak Norwegian.

    I don't see what special information a dead body picture conveys.

    I'm not going to expend any more energy on this and I'm pleased your (originally anonymous source) looks legit but still no wiser why such a picture is important.

    That's my point. I'm used to reliable news outlets such as the BBC researching their sources before publishing their stories so that they do not attribute things incorrectly.

    If someone is going to make some claim about the corornavirus, I'd like to know where that originated from so that I can be sure they aren't propagating total nonsense.

    In another group I had an email from someone who made online courses - an intelligent guy. He told everyone who had used his material that a coronavirus cure had been found and that within three weeks there would be a vaccine available.

    I asked him for the source of these statements, just as I have done here.

    The corona cure source came from Trumps lips, supposedly based on some tiny experiment by a french researcher using anti-malarial drugs. No reputable evidence to back that up and Americans have discovered some of the anti-malarial drugs ingredients are also in some fish treatment and have been scouring pet stores thinking it would be a cure/protection. Result? an American couple died because they had the stuff at home and it killed them.

    The second part about a virus in three weeks comes from uncredited source that Israeli researchers said they'd have a vaccine available.




    I don't see why any reputable source would see any value, but someone maliciously wanting to sensationalise some nonsense might well use it.


    I know, but I wanted to be sure he wouldn't.



    That's not media I watch or would have any trust in.

    You can tell by now I don't have much tolerance for people spreading nonsense about coronavirus.
    Iīsorry, in my perspective It feels you are overreacting..you probably have your reason..but I donīt get it, feels you are making a hen out of a feather for when you do not require a hen or a feather for that matter.
    Why would you require any information about that image and that situation, is that situation of the nature that it would help you understand the situation in general, would it work for you as a scientific proof of people dying, and the pain..most likely not, you know all that..which you by the way is confirming, so I just donīt get why you werenīt content with...please do not show it here thank you...rather than going on rampage on questioning the legatimity of what he had seen, which possibly would require you to take a look at something you do not want to look at.

    It wasnīt about a cure, it wasnt about how the virus works, it wasnīt about how to protect ourself, or how many have been infected..or deaths, it was a witness of someone who have died..and what possible gain could you get from a verification that it would either be false or true, the very difference between a death as false as that..or as true as that can hardly be something to measure in difference...or what it could change for you or not.

    As for spreading nonsense, I really think you should drop that, or do a research and look at the pictures before stating it as nonsense.

    But everything is screaming irritation about your posts right now...I understand if the situation is horrible for you and what tolerance you do not have, but this sample of erikals mentioning a photo..of someones death, well..a hen out of a feather, it was in no way near the lips of..you know who.

    The picture conveys what it is ..a picture of a death, if you doubt it..donīt question it without having seen it.
    Im surprised you spend any energy on it..really...considering that is not what youīd like to see anyway, and probably care not to hear about or discuss either.

    Personally..my reaction on his post...so what, I never responded on that...I could assume it to be true, had no reason to doubt it considering the disease, and the deaths...and he said he saw, and he wasnīt about to post either...Iīm sure, had he that intent, Iīm sure that would have been in that very post...so why bother engage in to inflating it to a debate abote fakes or nonsense.

    This aside, I am very sorry for your loss.

    We have no need to discuss this further.

    Time for tea.

    Too many very stupid people incapable of seeing that the benefits outweigh the negatives. Too many people can't get past their negative impression of "Socialism." And too many people in this country (USA) think that "we are the best" and that we have nothing to learn from other countries. In other words... arrogant.

    I see many opinions in this thread that I might agree with, and some that I don't. What does that matter, apart from to me?

    But please: This is about a millimeter away from becoming politically contentious. Let's not, and save me the trouble; I've got work to do. I'm sure we all sympathize with the victims and their families, if in our own ways and with our own forms of expression (other than the 'deniers', and I just don't have time to deal with that). Let's quit there.

    The fins have been prepared and smart, they hade a huge stockpile since many years back, and they have several millions of protection masks, so for them, it wont run out.
    They can not share with other countries they say..according to their laws..these piles are prohibited for anything else than their own use for them during crises.

    And in Sweden we burnt the whole stockpile in 2000, and it also costs to burn each mask..I just donīt understand what they were thinking.

    And whatever problems comes with the situation, my freezer is broken..so I need it to either be fixed or get a new one, and I really want icecream now when spring and summer arrives and storing food for that matter if the situation getīs worse.
    But our landlord has stated that no visits will be done during this period of corona menace, not unless absolutely acute..not sure this qualifies, could call them of course.
    Anyway..itīs a small freezer combined with the fridge, I think I need one extra anyway..so.
