    India is going to full lockdown for 3 weeks. Meanwhile we haven’t had a full lockdown yet and folks are ready to kill their parents and grandparents to send their kids back to school and save the economy.

    Man Of War Golf in Lexington is still open. I wish I wasn’t trying to save my chicken so I could go get lessons.

    Right from the Orwellian playbook.
    We already have that though. The government is definitely tracking your every move and location.

    Right but they play dumb about.

    And add several corporations to the list of entities that track our movement among other things.

    Some of the sacrifice I've seen over the past few days.

That number is expected to climb significantly as the availability of test results increases. There's a proportional jump in those numbers expected as soon as today, potentially.

    Currently we have a 1.19% rate of mortality for patients testing COVID positive.
    March 23 - 33,404 cases; 400 deaths; 1.19% mortality rate
    March 24 - 44,183 cases; 544 deaths; 1.23% mortality rate

    Doctor Oz is a complete quack - so much so that multiple respected medical bodies have officially petitioned to have his medical licensure revoked.

    One thing that a lot of people don't realize is that he's only board certified as a thoracic cardiovascular surgeon...he specializes in surgery, and not medicine. Yet on his show, he makes himself out to be much more of an expert on medicine. When it comes to a lot of the stuff Dr. Oz likes to speak as an "expert" about, it makes about as much sense to listen to that guy as it does to listen to biomedical engineer tell you how to redesign the nation's electrical power grid. He's the definition of "Stay in your lane, bro."

    We need to be listening to infectious disease doctors and virologists.

    I believe that Devou Park has not only been open, but rather busy. Everyone has their own cart.

    New York is out of control, now in many places they are banning spouses from being present during childbirth and there is a push among some doctors in New York to ban the sale of all tobacco products, citing a study that found smokers are at an increased risk of being impacted by the respiratory illness.

    Talk about Draconian...

    Interesting thing about Dr. Oz. He was an all state football player in high school...as an offensive tackle.

    That makes sense. Everyone knows that a few days without a heater will magically cancel out years of abusing your lungs.
