🦠Smitty on Corona..🦠

SmittySmitty Posts: 9,128
Hey all,

First, I wish you all health and calmness in your homes, towns and places of employment. In your schools and children's schools as well.

I hope most of you see minimal impact to your lives, or if you see big impact to your way of life, it's short lived.

We can use this thread as a place to collect and speak about it. One thing I'd like to add is a self test I've heard about (I'm unsure as to how accurate it is, but thought id share):

Self-Test

1. Hold your breath for 10 seconds

2. If you do not feel pain and can hold it for all 10 seconds you would appear in the clear


... I'm not a doctor, this is something I've heard and again I'm unsure how accurate it is.

For those suggesting this isn't a big deal, keep in mind it's usually not about all the young and healthy people, but rather the risk it all poses to the older people in all of our lives.

Wash, stay safe, and avoid public gathering as much as possible.

And, stay on the forums and on TheFantasyFootballShow if you're at home and need something to do :)

    Well said Smitty

    Personally trying to keep my three kids from eating like there’s no tomorrow. Doesn’t help when your largest son is the size of a Viking.

    Over dramatic panic. Every morning I go to the McDs at Walmart near my workplace to grab a cup of Joe. Last Friday, I drove into a packed parking lot. I figured okay, maybe there's a sale happening. Walked in, zero carts available. Found that increasing odd. Then the sliding doors open to pandemonium. People everywhere grabbing toilet paper in bulk, paper towels, hand tissues, and anything Lysol related. Hand sanitizer nowhere to be found.

    I managed to get a box of gloves and soap, and oranges that were on sale. Then saw the lineup at the cash, half way down the store, past the clothing section. I looked at my bag, and just emptied it. Not worth it. Asked the lady at the McDs if she saw anything like this, she replied its worse than Black Friday/Boxing Day. The Walmart simply wasn't prepared for the influx of customers that day. Nor did they apply a limit on products per client, which would have made sense and reduce craze. Costco/Club Price is no different, lineups around the block just to enter the store. Sadly the elderly are the last ones to fill their carts with all the chaos.

    Our Bars, restaurants, cinemas, casinos, are all closed. Only drug stores, and groceries stores are open. Any events which are more than 200 people have all been canceled, for example our St. Patrick's Day parade and Formula 1 in June.

    Public needs to be smart. Listen to authorities that tell us to stay home if we don't need to go out, and reduce socializing in mass. Wash you hands repeatedly throughout the day for 20 seconds and sneeze into your elbow, you should be fine, I hope.

    It is, but those that tell me I'm overreacting I feel don't have old loved ones that could die from it. The perspectives are all over the map.

    I have 90 yr old parents, one with failing health, we are not letting them out of the house and observing all the protocols before entering their house.... I get it but still public reaction is making it far worse than it should be IMO...

    I am a ICU nurse in the Bay Area. I provide care for covid patients. All I can say is know your older family members final wishes and make sure they have a living will. If you have comorbidities such as high blood pressure, obesity, smoker, existing lung disease, cardio vascular diseases and diabetes take extra precautions. These are the people who are not recovering. The unhealthy and old population are being plucked off. Hate to say it but this is natural selection.

    @footballchix thanks for the info and being upfront about it!! Totally appreciate it! I can’t stand sugarcoating no matter how bad it is or could be.
    Thanks again!

    @footballchix Reports are showing China was utilizing mega dosing of vitamin C to cure the virus. Any sign of this being used where you are? For those of you who are wondering, mega doing of vitamin C has been proven to help cure many illnesses as well as prevent them, including flu like viruses. Search Cathcart, Jungeblut, McCormick and Klenner.

    That is not a USA treatment

    too much vitamin c leads to other complications. one tablet a day is ok.

    These patients are coming in and we are busting at the seams trying to keep it together. Supplies are low at hospitals. We have been asked to reuse protective equipment items that protect us. That’s unsafe. If hospital staff get severely sick there will be no one here. California has shut down everything and restricted hours to grocery stores.

    we've been trying to buy enough stuff to keep the family fed for two weeks. here in australia that order for lockdown is coming any day now.

    i hope supermarkets around the world have learnt from this and never let hoarders stockpile essential products ever again.
  • swampiesswampies Posts: 4,366
    @Dax It’s not the hoarders that cause this it’s the fact everyone bought the same thing at the same time! Supermarkets are run by past data from the previous year and the current trend of numbers of products sold. Supermarkets stock pile product that they know they will sell a lot of such as corn beef for St. Patrick’s Day.

    @Iceman im praying for your parents bud. My dad is 88 and my mom is 70. I share your worries. We can pull through this. Just need to socially distance ourselves for awhile. And take care of the elderly and most vulnerable first. Thank our service women and men continuously for their hard work and efforts. If there is one positive to get from this, the world is coming together as a whole to fight this

    My father is retired Navy and is the one with the failing health.... Thanks very much @WTCM, means alot....
  • swampiesswampies Posts: 4,366
    @Iceman I wish I could do the same with my mom in keeping her from going out. She has the same workaholic attitude as I do unfortunately and keeping from doing her job selling advertising is almost impossible. Her health has been on the decline these past years so I feel the same way as most of you do.
