Yeah, I guess I can thank the Ricketts for prepping me to be constantly forgetting that baseball should be a thing right now.

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

or wear a bandana like you are Jesse James holding up a train. That works just as well. That's literally what I did yesterday at the grocery store. I hated it. It kept constantly falling and it became incredibly humid because the heat was turned up in the grocery store and as a result it did not pr...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

What’s the recommendation for material for these masks? Cotton. Using things like bandannas and t-shirts are fine if someone can't buy masks (though just take a look at somewhere like Etsy; you'll find scores of sellers selling re-usable, washable cotton masks). You can use poly blends, too. Some o...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

That was before we realized that you could get it from just talking to someone or breathing the air someone else just exhaled, no? No. Aerosol spread has been known for some time. Unless someone's the governor of a state, apparently. And you're also not getting it from the air someone just exhaled....

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

I mean it's great people are on board for wearing masks but where TF do we get them? There are no masks available to buy and materials are all sold out everywhere I've been that I can find for DIY versions. We started using bandanas but that's obviously not ideal. Any tips? What’s the recommendatio...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

The CDC said to use non-N95 cloth masks when out in public. These masks will do their job from use to use as long as they aren't torn? it's gotta be better than nothing (as long as they are maintained clean) Right. Think of them as one use-only, and at the most use one for one day only and then cle...

My boss tested negative, so I'm in the clear (for now). By the time he got tested, he was running a really bad fever, has a really tight chest when breathing, and his BP and heart rate were high, in addition to aches and pains and chills and generally feeling "sick." It got bad enough by T...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

That’s just silly. No one is suggesting that it mutates into something entirely new, just enough to render antibodies less effective You're still talking about it like it's the flu, like there's a bunch of different strains that would undercut any kind of herd immunity when it re-emerges. If enough...

is there any info out there on how some of the trials they are running on treatments are going? the more i looked, the data behind hydroxychloroquine looked sketchy, at best. Per my gf(ICU nurse), it's done nothing for her patients. Are they using just that, or combining it with AZT and zinc? Not t...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Yes, if this bad thing ends up being like that other very different bad thing that changed in a very unusual way then this bad thing could indeed be a much worse thing. Thinking or worrying that this could "be like the Spanish Flu" isn't that far off from worrying that it will mutate into ...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

The problem is that if this comes in waves (like the Spanish Flu, which swept through in 1918, 1919 and 1920), the potential second/third waves may be mutated enough that anti-bodies to COVID-19 may not mean much Just stop. This is one of the most parroted doom boner talking points that profoundly ...
