    That’s not a very flattering pic ....This is a pic of her on a better day. It is amazing to listen to the stories of her and other nurses, techs and doctors....these people go thru hell emotionally....be it anxiety or depression or just plain scared.... she has one nurse friend who quit over the fear... But the rest know it’s what they signed up for... and they are determined to help at

    These are the real heroes.
    When my wife intubates her Covid patients she has to fully gown up, almost like hazmat suits. They have 34 cases with two deaths.

    There's talk front line workers will be getting hazard pay in the phase 4 relief bill.

    She is a beautiful woman and an American hero.
    She’s lucky to have taken after her mother:rolleyes:

    What town are you in?
    Main Street in Farmingdale is a ghost town.
    Lots of people took advantage of the beautiful weather Friday and were walking around in the fresh air. That was good to see.
    Boatyard was buzzing too that day.
    Everyone was giving others plenty of safe space too.
    Hoping we get another decent day or two this week.
    The rainy and gloomy weekend sucked! Today and tomorrow don’t look much better.

    We’re a much more free society than some others. While that’s a great thing, a downside is that people who don’t embrace the whole social distancing thing are free to put themselves and others in danger.

    My niece is an ER RN in a Phoenix area hospital. She gets one mask a day, and keeps it in a fast food burger clamshell when she's not wearing it.

    Several people have pm’d me so I’ll provide this perspective.

    Fact vs Fear stat:
    In California 700 people die every day of other causes.
    Of those 700, 2 (two) die of Corona.

    You may think that’s low, you may think it’s high.

    In addition, analytics are now showing that as high as 50% of those who died from Corona were already terminal. They were going to die anyway.
    IF, this trend continues then the mortality rate will calculate much closer to the seasonal flu. Not quite as low but well below 1%.

    The data coming is being run through analytical algorithms daily multiple times.

    The new cases reported are increasing daily now that we are testing up to 50,000 people w symptoms today.

    Total deaths US 2599.

    If that’s a week’s supply of toilet paper for you, you have much bigger problems than this virus.
