  1. The absolute worst part that people aren’t understanding, is that the collapsing/overwhelming of the healthcare workforce means that ALL care will be significantly more difficult to obtain. Breaking a limb could put you on a waiting list. Getting a heart attack might mean dying in line at the ER reception. This will cause a snowball effect which will certainly do more damage to the economy than the lockdown could. I pray we never see that reality, but we are approaching it rapidly.

  2. The scariest part? Covid has an incubation of five to six days and Florida and Texas have an average test-to-results time of nine days. That means that the numbers posted today were for infections that occurred two weeks ago. Imagine how many actual infections happened today.

  3. History will remember the embarrassing response the United States had against Covid. Our children and grandchildren will read about this in school and remember how we couldn’t collectively cast our ego aside and wear a fucking mask.

  4. “After the first cases were reported in China around the new year, it took three months to reach one million cases. But it has taken just five days to climb to 13 million cases from 12 million.”

    And it won’t stop there.

  5. Anybody that has ever played plague inc. will understand this kind of explosion in cases. It always starts slow until it hits a certain threshold than the country rapidly turns red.

  6. Canadian here. I’m so fucking scared of Americans coming across the border and spreading it after we’ve managed to contain it for several months.

    Edit: more context for my fears. I drove around Toronto yesterday and was shocked to see several American plates (Connecticut, Main, New York, Illinois), where the hell are y’all going? Did I witness some kind of mass exodus? I never saw so many American plates around me on the same drive. I’m used to a New York plate here and there and it was common before covid, but where are the rest of you going?
