    In a couple weeks as the bodies pile up and as jokes stop seeming funny, we are going to look back at everyone who broke the rules and remember it. Every American is going to lose someone. Maybe your family, maybe your coworker, maybe your neighbor. We will all know someone killed by our own carelessness. Picture someone who means everything to you. Picture them being the one you lose because someone couldn’t follow a rule. No. More. Excuses. This is life and death. Act like it.

    Bullshit. act like an adult before you blame others people are dying. We told all of you what to do and you screamed “but Panera bread” and now there’s 2000 dead bodies. go tell your excuses to the dead Americans maybe they will listen.

    I don’t know if it’s 1 or 2 sigma error bars but the error bars show 5000 a day within error. i don’t know if we will get that high but I will say this, we are on a path to be on the high side.

    Since you posted this the US death toll has doubled. A thousand people died of it. In 2 days.

    A few doors down from me a family was outdoors having beer on their front porch, with their kids playing together. Based on their car, one of them works in a hospice facility. Our county’s first death today was someone who was in a hospice facility. Maybe they will be fine today, but do that a few more times and someone will die for that play date.

    Over 500 Americans died of this today, including an infant in Chicago. The US had 1000 dead on March 26, today is March 28 and now we have 2000 dead. this is not a game.

    It can survive on surfaces for hours in a full dose, and up to 72 hours total. Any person who touched it in the past 3 days could have transmitted it there. Or, you could pick it up from someone you talk to, then drop it on the table, and 2 days later someone else picks it up from you. https://www.statnews.com/2020/03/19/coronavirus-survives-on-surfaces-how-to-protect-yourself/

    Apparently one of the Sunoco stations near me can do touchless transactions so that station is getting business.

    Until right now I didn't think about how difficult the credit card step was going to be. Thank you.

    I'm going to have to later this week. I'm probably going to combine it with a Dr. visit (required) and a grocery run. I'm almost certainly wearing a mask during the run, every time I do any step where I have to touch stuff I'll do a hand sanitizer squirt, I'm going to disinfect all the groceries that go in the fridge with lysol along with the table they're sitting on, and everything non-perishable is going to spend 3 days sitting in the garage. The more people who act like this isn't a big deal, the bigger of a deal it will be.
