    This is so sad. Spain took forever to act, and now the death rate has risen dramatically. They have a population of less than 50 million. They chose to ignore this so long and now this.

    As in NY, where Cuomo did not start testing until February 29, and look at NY is now the hot-spot in America.



    A total of 738 people in Spain died from coronavirus-related illnesses in the past 24 hours, the largest increase in fatalities since the disease entered the country.

    The number of COVID-19 deaths in Spain soared from 2,696 to 3,434 on Tuesday, according to the country’s health ministry. In total, Spain has registered 47,610 people who have tested positive for the virus — up from just 36,673 earlier on Tuesday.

    Spain — which has a population of roughly 46 million — touts the second highest tally of coronavirus-related deaths in the world. Italy, which is reporting a death toll of 6,820, has experienced the most deaths so far.

    Can't remember which country... wanna say Belgium... but they've decided to go the herd immunity route.

    Good luck.

    Honestly, herd immunity does have its benefits if we think about it. If we're going to drop dead to this thing anyway, then what we're doing with containment is delaying the inevitable. At least with herd immunity, we let it run its course and hopefully the surviving population will have restraint to the virus.

    But in this scenario you still have the medical bottle neck... or just let the susceptible die.

    It is ultimately how the natural world works. Humans are the only species in the animal kingdom that tries to pretend this is simply not the case.

    You can live by that principal if you'd like. I mean sure, at some point a plauge may come about that's utterly useless to fight, but until then I say fight.

    This might be said plague. It multiples faster than the other known viruses, it's asymptomatic. It can last up to 20 days in your system, thus utterly confusing the life and death status of victims. And it damages the lungs, a vital health function. So even if you survive with this thing, it could be a slow killer.

    I'm feeling more optimistic. I do fear something that's as nasty and contagious as measles... like some completely unknown virus that's as deadly and contagious. That's terrifying in light of how connection the world is today through our ability to travel.

    We(the human race in general) kind of got arrogant(that's why they stopped researching the SARS vaccine after SARS was defeated.). We thought we knew everything about the viral world, that nothing new was going to pop up. Lo and behold, certain wet markets were still around and presto.

    The worst part about this virus is it attacks another arrogant presumption of ours: A cold is a cold, and we'll be able to defeat the cold.(And to be sure, there have been recoveries from this thing. Though as noted in the Stat thread, it's decreasing steadily.). In reality, a cold can be so much more than just a cold.

    I happen to have year-round allergies, which further complicates a self-diagnosis for me lol. But as of now, taste, texture, smell, etc are all there. No fever to speak of. But I'mma keep myself in self-quarantine, until they come up with something or until it gets to that point that I'd have to be hospitalized.

    The very first case of Community Spread in the USA got confirmed by the CDC just a single day prior for a case in Washington. I can't imagine the type of logic necessary to criticize the Governor of NY because he did not start testing until 24 hours after that point while simultaneously ignoring the fact that every State was reliant upon the Federal Government to conduct testing and that the testing from the US Federal Government was extremely slow and inept.

    I wonder if it's the same logic that underlies a willingness to condemn Spain for 700 single day deaths and then to remain radio silent when the US hits that point in approximately 5-7 days.

    Nationalized healthcare couldn’t save them.

    I'm waiting for the US to be hit that hard and then I will come here and post tasteless comments on how bad US health care is and that the, in some people's mind supposedly superior US system can't cope and let's people die.

    Feminists and progressive must be happy, it's mostly old men dying, the people they hate.
