Title: CORONAVIRUS!!! What's up in YOUR area?
Post by yellowjacket on Mar 17th, 2020 at 5:28am
CORONAVIRUS!!! What's up in YOUR area?

My Area? Unfortunately I'm 45 miles away from Kirkland (just across Lake Washington from Seattle) who became the epicenter for WA coronavirus outbreak and USA by far. UPDATE as of this morning: 48 deaths (29 in one place in Kirkland). 37 deaths for the rest of USA. That's how bad it is here. :o

Stores shelves are empty of things like toilet paper, wipes, masks, eggs, milk things like that. Everywhere, even way out in Port Hadlock 150 miles away from any big cities. (several relatives live out there) Pretty much everything like restaurants, fitness centers, bars etc are shut down. Downtowns are like ghost towns and behold, I-5 is not crowded anymore.

Fortunately I've seen something like this coming and was already well stocked up. And why I got out of liberazz democrap crazy Tacoma just in time last year! Everything paid off except for house.

I still think this panic is overblown by the media to cause panic to make Trump look bad before the elections. Seems to me in the same time period, the flu has killed more people by far. Most that catch Coronavirus survives. Check out the chart below. All you need to do is use "common sense" like you normally would during flu season, wash your hands a lot, don't go around large groups of people and if you do, stay 3-6 feet away from them.

I just saw this online, not the first:

Quote:
Instead of reporting the facts about the coronavirus outbreak, the media are irresponsibly exploiting this public health challenge to try to damage President Trump. While most outlets breathlessly report the number of people infected and killed by the virus, most fail to mention the number of people previously infected by the virus who have recovered with no lasting side effects. More than 50,000 people who have contracted the virus have recovered worldwide.

This is a a serious issue. Elderly and health compromised are the ones in danger. The rest might get sick or not. I work a few miles from Kirkland and live 15 miles from there. The building I work in has already been closed once and disinfected once that I know of. I now work from home. Period. Good luck getting me back anytime soon. The problem is who knows if my family or even me are infected. We can not safely visit my parents, my wife’s mom, or really one of our sons.

Anyone who tries to politicize this is of sub standard intelligence.
Do I feel personally threatened by this? Not really. But I have many family members I could unknowingly infect. Many in the questionable group. What a horrible situation if someone got infected and passed because I dropped in and said “hi”.

No, most of us are going to have a distracted life for a while.
Others will have permanently changed lives.

Sorry guys. I get a bit protective of my loved ones.

Stay safe, care for yourselves, and live long healthy lives!

Well, the media has politicize this whole thing.

Smart to stay home. I do. However, my wife can't as they won't close down the banks and she works in the Puyallup downtown bank that is very busy. She complained of a sore throat an hour ago at 2am, so I got her a Vitamin C and multivitamin. I'm up now and can't sleep thinking she may have caught it. Hope not.

Yup, I can't go see my Mom any time in the near future as when I went down to Oregon two weeks ago, they wouldn't let me in as I was from WA near the outbreak. I guess 45 miles is too close. Can't blame them though.

Up to 16 cases so far here, but some of the stores look like bombs went off inside. It amazes me how many people live only for today...no planning for emergencies. The local hospital here which is one of the 10 largest in the USA is really stock pilling. I do feel sorry for all the elderly citizens who are at high risk plus all the people who are being laid off & are most likely many are living week to week.  It's a tough world out there & you have to plan for bad things or you'll be thrown aside.

I'm also home all day and I watch Fox News and online stuff to keep track. I'll go for a nice drive to a remote lake or place away from people, like right now since the weather has been so nice.

Iryn was OK this morning when she went to work. They changed things there... no walk in's people have to use the drive through. They will let occasional business customers in, but Iryn is wearing mask and gloves and will stay 6 feet away from customers.

The panic out here in NW is amazing... actually quite stupid. I still say the flu is worse, that don't just kill the old, but all ages... time will tell.

What is going to happen when we have a extended blackout, no electricity caused by cyber attack or EMP? Then you will see bad stuff like riots/looting. I see that coming in the future. I just hope it don't happen before this virus gets under control.

At least this current virus gives you somewhat of an idea of how people react in time of a crisis.

How in the heck are we gonna pay for this bill that was just passed. I think China just won this war without firing a shot.

Also I'm very disappointed that Trump signed the bill. Amazed that he let the democraps sneak in some things that had NOTHING to do with Coronavirus!!! >:(

For an example, what in the Heck does the Kennedy
Center $100M arts funding have in relation to the Coronavirus???

Well the governor has tightened up the rules here in WA that all non essential business must be close and stay home. All local and state parks are closed. Can't even get in to see a doctor anywhere unless it's life threatening or you have the Chinese Virus.

I've been busy at work, one of the businesses allowed to be open. Been selling lots of albums, CD's & cassettes all over the world now. It did quit raining a few days over the last few weeks & I tilled my garden got rid of lots of weeds everywhere & planted some new roses & bee bomb. Planting my own artichokes again..we can't get any good ones here. Can't take the cars for a long run because they do pull people over & ask them why they are on the road. This is getting  a little crazy

I thought when this all started it was a big HOAX and still do.
It mostly killed the very old 80+ who had issues and probably would have died anyway with the flu.  Stats back that up.

Time will tell as if the virus was for real, as with all the thousands marching elbow to elbow and rioting/looting/maiming/destroying property, there should be a HUGE spike in the virus cases... so far not much. I actually wouldn't feel bad if the ones participating in rioting/looting/maiming/destroying property caught the virus.

This chart shows virtually no deaths as of yesterday:
https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/
A few weeks ago almost all states had several deaths.
Check against attached jpg from last month to the one of the link above. The red shows deaths on that day.
Hmmm...... :-/

I wonder if the Democraps have moved on from this and concentrating stirring up the protest/riots/looting instead?
There should be massive new infections by now if it was for real as it's week two of protests/rioting.

NEPA is coming alive. a lot of skills we have are now deemed very important. Did I mention our governor is a idiot and our health secretary is or was a guy.... what a state of demise we live in.

Speaking of the virus,
Our son-in-law decided to get some hair cutting tools.
After giving himself a haircut, he offered to do mine!

So last week they made us dinner at their house and he gave me a haircut! LOL!
Oh man my hair had grown way more than I realized!

Just a tiny dab of shampoo does it now! LOL! :D

At the beginning of the year, I would have never guessed the terrible shape America would be in all because the democrats tore this country apart trying to get Trump out of office.

This is about a worse democrap ticket possible with Biden/Harris. America is doomed if they win the elections. My State of WA is doomed if our current dictator governor wins another term.

Well, an update, this thread hasn't had one in a while.

First, with Biden in office in January, America as we knew it is DOOMED, especially if far left democrap Harris somehow supplants Biden. Don't be surprised if Biden suddenly "retires" due to health reasons.

Here in WA the state is pretty much shut down by our Socialist Governor through early January or longer. All fitness Centers closed, Restaurants, most other businesses, churches etc. Essencial stores running at 25% capacity. I don't see how the WA state economy is going to recover from this.

They're saying stay home don't visit relatives this Christmas / New Years. Oregon governor encourages people to call (snitch) on neighbors that have too many people over for the holidays. The police will come and fine them.

Football for me has shut down as Huskies just had to cancel the North Championship and Pac12 Championship games from half the team that caught the Chinese Virus. Most all only have mild symptoms but it don't matter, they shut it down anyways...

This is going to keep going until Biden/Harris turns this into a Socialist country. We're seriously thinking of selling our home and moving to Idaho. We're going to watch this a few months before making that decision.

I (we, family)all contracted Covid19 in March, I received my 1st vaccine on March 12th, Our Son was diagnosed with Covid on March 13th, My wife followed the next day on the 14th, on the 15th I tested positive. we all had it, it lasted 3 weeks, 4 for me because it settled in my lungs and gave me Covid-pnuemonia, our son was hospitalized for 5 days and received a 4 round dose of Remdesivir. I had an infusion of monochlonal antibodies on March 24th. the Mrs. just toughed it out, our daughter was up at college and was not affected. it was like a severe bout of the flu. we are all vaccinated at this point, plus we have some natural immunity now. funny the fear mongering Fraudci is still out here spreading his falsehoods, where I work on the Air Force Base, we are at the lowest health protection condition (Alpha) Delta being the most restrictive and that happened Last March (2020) so, it remains to be seen where we go from here but I don't think people are going to put the masks back on at this point.

I think most of the politician's would better serve us if they were gaged. This mask stuff is way out of hand. How about charging China for what they cost our country & because they would never pay just seize all there assets in our country & wash our hands of what we owe them. They would be on there knees in 24hrs. Politicians all have there own agenda and we are not part of it.....

I won't get vaccinated. I don't like being told by the government that you have to. Out here in NW they're already have you can't go in most restaurants without proof of vaccination (a card). Many stores aren't letting you in without proof and it's getting worse. Pretty soon you can't see doctors or get admitted into hospitals without proof.... this is just WRONG!!!

I'm at home and not around people so I'm not too worried about getting the shots just yet.

The flu vaccination took a long time before FDA approved of it. It takes time to see if there are side effects etc down the road... this current vaccinations were rushed through.

Why hasn't the FDA given COVID-19 vaccine full approval yet?
https://spectrumlocalnews.com/nc/charlotte/news/2021/07/08/push-for-fda-to-give-full-approval-to-covid-vaccine
The Food and Drug Administration granted the vaccines emergency use authorization months ago. But the agency has yet to give full approval. That review process started in May for Pfizer and in June for Moderna.

Oh yes as for the masks....think about this a minute.
They say you can catch germs/viruses through the nose/mouth/eyes. Note EYES... does the mask cover the eyes? NO! Yet they say this:
Wash your hands often. Do Not touch your face or rub your eyes? Doesn't this tell you something?

I notice when I went to my doctor recently he was wearing a mask along with face shield. That should tell you something...

So these mask laws and regulations are just DemoCrap government control.

I don't like these new mandates forcing people to get shot if they don't want to. Pretty soon you won't be able to fly anywhere, take a train, go into stores and restaurants without proof of shots.

I'm still holding out on shots for another year just to be on safe side of long term side-effects. They rushed these shots out. I will however take tests if needed. Haven't had to yet.

Anyone else take on this here?
