    There is know doubt the infected number is low, just like your family
    JVM, Which means the mortality rate is lower than the published numbers.

    JVM , wishing your family a speedy recovery.

    A couple weeks ago I posted about a co-worker that had a connection to the attorney in NY that was mentioned on 20/20. He lives in West Chester, NY and today told us his next door neighbor has it and his neighbor across the street has it. He said the one across the street is about 30 and in good health.

    So the Gov. of WV shut our state down tonight at 8:00PM. I am in the Industrial Distribution business so we are taking it on the chin hard. I am hoping we are out of this madness by June at the latest. That is not stopping my boating plans at all.

    Why did he close industrial distribution? Aren't you part of the supply chain for critical industries?

    WV 320....you should investigate a bit... it turned out I was in the supply chain of bullets for the army and was told to stay open... it’s interesting I am keeping suppliers to me to stay open.. they were very grateful

    No, that's not what he said if anyone were to cut and paste the whole conversation. I realize people who don't like this President love to cut a small section of his unscripted comments that can be taken in a derogatory way. What he said over and over was that it would be a beautiful thing if we could come out of this by Easter. It is merely a metaphorical reference and a message of hope. Would you want a message of hope or doom and gloom constantly? The governments around the world and ours is doing everything possible to beat this virus and protect the economies we all need to move forward in this world. To suggest anything else is simply irresponsible and ignorant.

    He also didn’t say it was a “hoax”, but what’d’ya expect coming from the same sources?

    Stepping back into this thread momentarily to post some feedback from a buddy of mine. He is currently an ER nurse after spending 20 years as a paramedic in a rough area in northern Illinois.

    "I wanted to post something for my friends because, well, you’re my friends and I care about you. When you hear “don’t go to the ER unless you are dying”, they’re not kidding. We are instructed to use the same PAPER mask for as long as a week and our N95 for longer than that until it’s literally unusable. We are instructed to limit doffing gowns as they are also in short supply. This means that when I get to your room, I’m wearing the same mask and gown I’ve worn with several other patients before you. Corona rule out patients. This is cross-contamination and would get me fired in normal times, but not today. If you don’t have it, you’ve just improved your chances exponentially by visiting an ER. Stay home. And for Gods sake don’t bring your kids in here. Thought you all would like to know. Be safe. Be smart.
    FYI those who know me know I am absolutely not posting this to let people know what I do or garner support."

    I also read something about how popular Vaping is amongst the youth here. They are starting to make a link to the damage vaping does to your lungs making you more susceptible to severe symptoms from this virus.

    How much money does it cost to turn a capitalist into a socialist?

    That’s a good one!

    BTW: My daughter works for a big healthcare system here.
    Of the people who need to be hospitalized with COVID 19, right now about 25% of them need an ICU bed (ventilator).
    Again though, the vast majority of people who test positive don’t need to be hospitalized. At this point, as per the Governor, 15% require hospitalization.
