    I have to vent.

    Intersting to say the least. I have a son that is on the front line in a hospital inhabiting people daily ,some in their thirties otherwise healthy , he has said they are already forced to reuse gowns. He says it is likley he will contract the virus. He is telling me to stay home. The virus can live on surfaces longer than we are hearing. He said that on a cruse ship that has been empty for 17 days they were able to find live virus.
    I try to tell friends and family to stay in place and i have gotten some angered response. One tells me the United States was not built by sheltering in place and if we listen to the medical profession we will be sitting in seperate rooms in body condoms. His son took his family on a trip to Tennessee, wife and teenage daughters.Another believes he already had it back in February and is immune, ya got to be smart he says, goes about his routine, got tires put on his vehicle and waited for them to align, the tires were not wore out.He goes to Wall mart, the park ,has his kids with their kids come over.
    I will say it again,my son is seeing the carnage and is telling me the hospitals are having discussions on if to code people that has been put on respirators.

    Don't try to tell anyone anything. You can only control yourself. All of the information is out there. The 17 day live virus on the cruise ship is not secret inside knowledge that just you have. It was on most news outlets. I have heard it many times. My son's employer is still open, retail environment. We will not be around him and our new grandson any time soon. The SiL is still working and in contact with people. So we will not be around him, the daughter and those three grandsons any time soon. it sucks, but everyone has to live their own life.

    I am trying to decide when I need to stay home from my job. Nice to have the income, but is not essential for us to make it.

    Henry Ford Health already published they will NOT code people on vents. They will pull people OFF vents if they are not improving. This is going to get ugly folks.

    Pretty much this... i occasionally whine in other threads about my neighbors very obviously not taking this seriously at all (there's a huge pack of kids all wrestling in the street right now from different households, tons of neighbors are having their normal weekend gatherings, complete with visitors driving cars with out of state plates) and even on INGO I'm basically told to STFU about it.

    People want to be idiots, then I guess they can be. It's frustrating because that is going to prolong any "recovery" period from this and just prolong the illness, but... Not much else to be done about it short of an actual military enforced quarantine, and none of us want that one bit.

    edit: Not to say that Expat's family, or anyone who has to go to their jobs, is an idiot. There's a big difference between those groups.

    Here is what my oldest daughter sent me today. Pretty appropriate for this thread. There is a Language Alert but appropriate. If not okay, I will remove it.

    When the black screen with the white spinning circle appears, click in the middle of the spinning circle. Or, it is the song on the bottom left.

    I just heard that now they want us to start wearing safety glasses if you go out. They are supposed to create another barrier for your eyes if someone coughs or sneezes close to you. And you are to wash them often.

    Folks, things are going to get stranger by the day as this thing progresses.

    My wife runs the ICU at a hospital in Louisville. Trust me, this thing is very real.
