The Corona Virus

REBORN


hard to read... please choose another color


Why on earth are you using white background? that´s not the way the dark side works:devil: :D
Don´t you make me attack you with the Icon virus often showing up from you :D :devil:

Just change template temporarely, so I don´t have to mess with it...not gonna change it.
Im gonna use cyan and orange in the future..white backgrounds doesn´t do justice to any colored text at all, simply ..text doesn´t become highlighted since there is no background to highlight them against.

Alternatively, just keep word or wps fusion (which I use) Opened and paste the text you have a hard time to read, and change it´s color there.

Most importantly, stay healthy and safe Erikals. :)

Norway "ShutDown" today

probably 50% of Norway is not at work
Companies are going bankrupt

Our prime minister says they can afford every measure they have to take..sort of, money is no problem, still comforting all worried with fairy tales.

Nope..but I don´t think Maranders thesis about it had that backed up either, if he has he can of course correct me.

Just based on scientist / virologist interviews and report, not a WHO source. As far as I understood not airborne but can be transmitted with tiny fluid particles within a certain distance and time from breath.

Also an intersting report mentioned that the virus might already have mutated but uncertain in what way / effect.

I'm very surprised it already got to Scandinavia is this amount and short time.

However, all the best health to all Wavers wherever they animate and render! :cat:

Over here in southern New Hampshire I went into the Market Basket grocery store and it was like the world was going to end. Full carts everywhere. Lines on both sides of the store from the back of the store to the front where an employee was directing the traffic flow. I went over to him with my normal cart of 4 items and asked about the 12 items or less isle and he said "go right in, sir". I zipped through the line of hundreds of carts and was 2nd in line. Chatted with a normal couple behind me about the whole panic silliness. Some people had the look of "OMG he doesn't know". Oh well.

PS> I still gotta drive my truck into Boston everyday. Was supposed to come in early tomorrow for a delivery to the Boston Garden but they called us to say they're closing for a few days and to not bring any deliveries. So it's starting to impact my wallet slowly.

Nice story Steve-o, always interesting to read other people's experience in such situations!

- - - Updated - - -

Here's a little follow up, not from a scientific source but NY Times. The page has also a (more or less) updated page of the worldwide status. https://www.nytimes.com/news-event/coronavirus

"It seems to spread very easily from person to person, especially in homes, hospitals and other confined spaces. The pathogen can travel through the air, enveloped in tiny respiratory droplets that are produced when a sick person breathes, talks, coughs or sneezes."

For Swedes, a Quite popular place to travel too is Italy, and most of it seem to have been originating from there, only a few cases from Iran, so not really something to be surprised about.
Denmark officially has a little more, and norway even more than denmark, so far no deaths ..yet though and let´s hope not.
only this last day almost 100 more infected in sweden.
4 in Swizz?

Maybe start to hamster some grosery stuff tomorrow, at least to have for 2 weeks or so...prepping, though the government says not to, and other experts and authorities says it´s wise to have some sort of backup, but that is also something we constantly should have in crises situation accorign to MSB our swedish authority for community protection.
Not sure what to get though that lasts long.
Canned goods, chocolate bars, juice extraction, oats perhaps, rice.

Take care Michael.

The governments probably don't want people to clean out stores completely but I think it's a good idea to stock up at least a bit just in case. I'm going to stock up on things like nuts and nut bars, frozen meat, fruit and vegtables. Yes rice is also a good idea. All those preppers that most people make fun of are now probably saying "told ya so".

some stores started limiting the rations

for example, no more than 3 of each product.

my guess, others will follow.

Thank you Prom, don't worry I have always a good stock in case but for this situation did additional prepping, already about 3 weeks ago.

As I mentioned about 70k Italians travel in and out of our country for work every day from Italy (and simlar from France and Germany). We have many Chinese tourists and our slow Swiss government made it inevitable that it will hit us too. So far only elderly died except one 54 year old but looking at the rate in Italy we should have an idea what's coming.

I live on the country side but my clients are in town. Most of them implemented a policy that doesn't allow externals to visit them / no physical contact, so I work from home. My wife has local clients so she's more exposed. Kids still go to school, just some sports events are cancelled.

We have vacations booked to Asia and California within the next three months but the way it looks we might have to forget about that. Not an issue for me (and the rest of the family needs to accept it), main concern is health. And economy is a concern too of course.

...but more then enough nice 3D apps to use, games and movies, I will not get bored!

Take care and all the best, Michael

fyi some more little Corona history hear from southern Germany (Bavaria)

1st official positive in Germany (Bavaria) was mid January a 32 year emplopyee from a international automotive supplier company around Munich (Webasto), actually living with his family in our little town west of Munich.
Company had some internal training meetings with an attendy from China with positive test results after her return flight back to China some days after the meetings in HQ. The week later the test of this ´German´ employee showed positive results followed by at least 4 more employees in the German office.
Company immeadiately closed their facility the day after for a couple of days with no more officially´ announced infections after from this loation

sorry, I was wrong with the timing above - this first infection in Germany was anounced January 28th, not mid January - Frank

Surely the right measures taken. Even if maybe a tiny bit late for some...
There might have been a bit too much trust in people in general to behave approprietely. For some out there - it seems - it is just too hard to believe in things they can´t see...

As of 5pm today my place of work closes down so I along with everyone else at the University will be remote working for as long as is necessary. Surreal and unsettling times. I think it's probably only a matter of time before the UK goes into some kind of forced lockdown.

I'm in Ohio , US, and it's been kinda crazy here. Stores are sorta open, but good luck finding a restaurant that's open. Most have closed, except for take out. I feel like I'm in a movie with all of this. I'm semi-retired, but do work at home on some client work. So far, I still am getting work, but if this continues too long, that may change for the worse.

I talked with a few friends that I have in a few other states, and so far they are okay. Me and my wife are doing okay health wise so far too.

Best of luck healthwise with everyone on the forum. My prayers are with all of us!

Thank you JamesCurtis from ´old Europe´

Exit restrictions in Bavaria worked out pretty well thru the weekend, also because outside temperature went down from 20+th during day past week down to ~5° due to a cold east wind situation we got.
But now suddenly hospitals reporting more and more younger people (20+) arrive need their support too !

My hest wishes to everyone in here - Frank
