  9. You can not seriously believe numbers from china, can you? In the beginning china ordered everyone to stay inside their homes in Yuhan, and shot anyone that left the building. Should we try that too? The fact is this, because of our constitution, the federal government can not order states to close their borders. You'd have to change the constitution first. Good luck wit that Congress can not even agree on the amount of $$ to send out as Stimulus checks.. For all our faults in the US, and we have plenty, I'd not change our laws with any other country in the world.
  10. I just noticed this post Nan. I hope she can recover from it. So much for it not affecting young people. She certainly seems to be hit very hard by it. Thanks for the post.
  11. Please join us for our next chat in #readers_corner at 8:30 P.M. (EST) February 20, 2021 -- 01:30 A.M. (GMT) -- for a discussion of “The Biggest Watermelon Anybody Ever Saw” By William Saroyan. William Saroyan was hailed by Kurt Vonnegut as the “greatest of all the American minimalists” for his simple stories about childhood, the immigrant experience, and Fresno, California. Saroyan won both a Pulitzer Prize and an Academy Award. He wrote plays, novels, and short stories based on his travels across Eastern Europe and his experience of living as an Armenian immigrant in Northern California. Saroyan’s stories elicited hard-to-come-by optimism during the Great Depression, and he maintained a prolific, celebrated career until his death in 1981.

  13. Below is the personal "journey" of the daughter of the friend of my cousin, her name is Megan. This young woman lives in the UK and is in her 20s and she got covid last year. She posted on her Facebook what her life is like these days and some obstacles she's facing due to the after effects of having covid. This does not apply to everyone who gets the virus, some die, some recover, but it is known that for many, there are health problems that will continue for years due to the damage that the virus can do. I believe everyone should read it and be aware of what is possible. "Yesterday was an anniversary, of sorts. 6 months since I was tested positive for Covid-19. 6 months of being sick. Of learning about the virus along with medical professionals. Of finding my new normal. As we move towards the winter months, on the brink of a second wave, and lockdown looms large, I wanted to speak, again, about how we need to be taking this seriously. I wanted to talk about how I check my o2 levels frequently, monitor my heart rate constantly, take inhalers and medications to try and soothe my scarred and tired lungs, relieve the pain in my joints, boost my immune system. I can’t leave the house without a walking stick now. I was approved for a blue disabled parking badge, forcing me to acknowledge my new limitations. I sleep for hours at a time and still feel exhausted, completely debilitated by fatigue. Symptoms come and go, and even now, six months later, new symptoms are affecting my everyday life. I still can’t work, I still can’t be spontaneous. Even taking a shower is a carefully planned and considered event, and - depending on whether or not I faint in the shower - anything up to a couple of hours is needed to rest afterwards. I am still in my 20s. I was healthy before I caught covid. Now making a sandwich feels like an accomplishment. I know that lockdown feels scarier in the winter, that longer evenings and colder days feel lonelier. But understand that covid hasn’t gone anywhere, and the ‘two week and it’s done’ narrative isn’t always true. Be careful. Be safe. Be responsible. Wear your mask. Look after yourself and your loved ones. Stay healthy."

  16. China should have it under control, they designed it.
  17. You're going to hate this, but I have to say it .. China did it, and brought their numbers under control and with strong lockdowns and health initiatives and they have a population of over 1 billion. The vaccines apparently lessen the symptoms of those who get covid-19 but they are saying that people can still get the virus and I'm unsure if they can still pass it on to others. This is of course, similar to how other vaccines work. Our Federal Govt worked with the States and together they made a plan that appears to work, although it's constantly evolving as new things are discovered about this virus. I don't know what the answer will be eventually and how our world will change, but I do see huge changes and countries like mine and other smaller countries where they have managed to get on top of it (for now) will probably stick with the procedures they have in place as they seem to work. It's interesting too, that the people who were complaining about lockdowns, politician bullies and how it is "only the flu", are now more accepting of situations where a 3 day lockdown is called due to a case being diagnosed in an area. We are learning to work around the last minute restrictions, border restrictions and now and then a lockdown.
  18. Has it worked in a country with 300 Million people? I think getting vaccines to everyone would be a great start. But, with the virus mutating as rapidly as it is, that may not work either. And we can not stay locked down forever. Unfortunately, this virus may be with us forever, just like the flu we see every year. But, we control that with vaccinations given to a large part of the population every year.
  19. Lockdown would help for a start - it's proven to have worked in other countries
  20. What kind of drastic action is needed?
  21. Unfortunately I get the impression there are many others who feel the same, and unfortunately because of that, I think there will be a lot more deaths and illness until someone sits up and pays attention and cares enough to take drastic action.
