It means we foresaw this happening and didn't give a fuck
how tf does new york have more cases than any country? holy shit, we are so doomed.
Social distancing seems to be working, as for the second day in a row NY has shown a drop in cases admitted to hospital.
But I don't see this getting better before it gets much worse in general.
What about those dying in their home?
i don't know about that. no one's social distancing, at least in the part of nyc i'm in; everyone's still out and about; parks are decently populated, as well
True, yeah. Not counted in the stats I read I think.
Just what I've seen in an article; not sure how true it is. Stay safe man.
urban density + general new york attitudes + being the only state that's pushing to test people
if those in the south bothered then I'm sure you would see NY become eclipsed by say, texas or florida.
i'm not surprised that the only states in america that seem to be handling this even remotely well and taking this shit seriously are the midwestern ones
like of course the united states of fuckall nowhere with a combined population roughly approximate to your nan's drawers are social distancing more frequently and diligently than the cities literally full to the brim with deaths and hospitalizations because people think they're fucking invincible
i hate this fucking planet
this is fucking scary
NYC has a larger population than some countries so
We're holding. The rate of growth has dropped below 1.18 and the trend seems to be dropping away from unrestrained exponential growth. The doubling rate is now solidly above 4 days. Based on the moving trends, the US will reach 1,000,000 cases somewhere between Day 95 and Day 100. Now the hard part comes - keeping people disciplined enough to prevent this from rising again.
would I be right in thinking governments (in general) will likely still keep restrictions/keep lockdown for a while longer so it doesn't increase again?
If they're being sensible and forward-thinking, it would be in a government's best interest to keep public health measures in place for at least 3 to 4 weeks beyond when the curve has been definitively flattened. Anything to minimize a second wave flareup is crucial until a vaccine can be developed. Fortunately, it appears COVID-19 has a lower than average rate of mutation, which will make a vaccination campaign far more effective.
New Mexico, for example, just had its shelter-in-place order extended until April 30. There's a good chance that the order will go until mid-May, given the limited hospital facilities we have.
Absolutely. Just cause it dies down doesn’t mean everything will open back up, but it will surely calm down to some extent restriction wise due to economic needs.
You love to see price gouging during a pandemic : )
nah man it's just those delivery services are expensive
why the fuck would you order just 1 item
1 large & 1 medium dominoes pizza for £15 with free delivery lol
corona sucks mostly but for cheap takeaway its p alright
that looks relatively within normal range. Delivery fees can be a bitch.
