Corona Virus
« on: March 13, 2020, 02:10:22 PM »
What are everyone's thoughts on this? It seems to be all we every hear about these days. No NCAA March Madness basketball due to it. It is impacting you, by that I mean can you not go to work or school due to everything being shut down?

I'm not too worried. I'll remain neutral on the rest, though.

You are right. They're cleaning out the shelves of toilet paper at the supermarkets like crazy. Then the people who really need it more, can't get it.

I do believe that the government and CDC are going too far with all the restrictions, social distancing, no sporting events such as March Madness basketball, no Master's Golf, no church services, no eating out at restaurants, people have to work from home. I think the COVID-19 is being used to attempt to control our lives. They've  :banned: pretty much everything.  :censored: the government, media, the CDC and everyone else. I'm not saying we shouldn't take it seriously; we should. But the rules they've put in place are too strict and drastic.

Not sure when this happened, but The Weather Channel is now joining all it's cable news brethren in airing the daily White House briefings on the coronavirus.

They're going too far. I mean TWC should report on it to some degree, because they've always talked about weather and how it affects/relates to our health, but to do the same thing that CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News do is uncalled for.

The Weather Channel, much like other cable networks, has moved its on-camera meteorologists out of the studio and into their own homes. Jacqui Jeras and Felicia Combs have been running the 8am-12pm time slot from their own makeshift studios at home.



This change is definitely surreal.

The whole staying home thing is BS. I understand the seriousness of the virus, but shutting the country down for a month is insane. Millions have already lost their job and business are having to close permanently (kind of hard to stay open with no money coming in). I hope every politician that supported this loses their job in November.

And the CDC doesn't care.  :furious: The news media only tells you the confirmed cases and deaths. They won't tell you about the people who have recovered (and there are many, many people who have). They don't want to know anything good or positive, it seems. Just what's bad and negative. I agree with you 100%.

I saw your sister, Lindsay's comment on facebook and with all due respect, I don't think she understands the other impacts it's having. Yes, quarantining is BS, as is social distancing. I am so sick and tired of this whole thing.

I'm inhaling some extremely ignorant, self-centered anecdotal content in this thread :rolleyes:

My university along with the rest of the PASSHE universities got shut down and moved to online only classes for the rest of the semester. While I might not like online classes, I support the decision since the health of the students/teachers/operations staff and the community in general are more important at this time.
