    In Italy, the death rate for COVID-19 is 68 in 1000. They did not take social distancing seriously, and are now paying the price because their hospitals are completely overwhelmed.

    The world death rate for COVID-19 is 37 in 1000.

    In the U.S., the death rate for COVID-19 has been 25 in 1000 as of Friday's numbers from the CDC.

    Please stop spreading misinformation. Ask a scientist if COVID-19 is more severe. It's fine if you don't want to take it seriously, but spreading lies about COVID-19's severity does not help anyone.
    MegoSteve, I ask for your forgiveness for spreading misinformation. BTW, What's your Perfect Album?
    You are transparent; I see many things... I see plans within plans.

    No worries, man. We are all in this together. I really hope that you are right and it isn't as bad as some of the doomsayers are predicting. If we come out of this craziness with fewer deaths as a result, it will be a huge win.

    I haven't listened to an album in a long time. Back in the olden days 20 or 30 years ago, I would have said U2's Joshua Tree. These days, I mostly listen to Spotify on radio mode or podcasts.

    Welp, as of 9:00 PM tonight, the governor of Ohio has closed all restaurants and bars in Ohio until further notice. They can do take out, but no dine in. My job is (was) as part of the kitchen staff at a restaurant, so I am currently laid off/unemployed until the executive order is rescinded when the crisis has passed. My wife is still working (she's a banker) and we survived on just her salary alone when I was laid up for 4 months a couple years back, so we'll get by with some belt tightening and frugalness, but there's a lot of folks not in a position to whether this like I am (including some of my co-workers). Waiting to hear tomorrow what they details are for changes int he unemployment insurance compensation the governor is supposed to make for all the displaced workers created by this executive order.

    Was in Tops yesterday and was weird seeing toilet paper on the shelves. I guess people don't want to pay $7.99 for a four pack. This was the recycled paper stuff.

    Illinois did the no dine in for restaurants and bars as well. My kids are out of school as of today too.

    I work in a different state, in an office with 1200+ people and yeah I'm concerned about it. My company said Saturday they aren't considering working remote. The team that works for me, and myself could 100% work remote with no interruption.
