They  should  just  accept  the death rate and  carry  on,  instead  they'll  lose  more through the economic  crash.

Well I'm with Jingthing on this. It's likely going to be 2 years just to get the first wave of infections worked through globally and that's assuming that places like Russia and N Korea divulge what's

Either it start to seriously tackle the issue : massives tests, isolation and search for contacts.

Still not the official plan it looks like... Or ?...

 

Massives masks (the most obvious and way better than confinement or "social distancing") are still not available, when it should have been prepared years ago !

 

Upgrading hospital capacity is probably done. Or not...

 

Better cure would be nice, but nothing sure, same for a vaccine.

 

The virus does not scare me (with the numbers we have). The incredibly poor, and restrictive only, "no-answer but delay because we are late, unprepared, or unwilling" scares me. People reacting like scared-sheep too.

 

Masks and Tests are the obvious absolute priority. I don't read much about most countries really doing a serious job here.

The masks most people wear don't stop people getting infected as they don't cover the eyes. They are useful for any that are coughing or sneezing.

I also am hoping for a vaccine. But it has been noted that this virus mutates easily and frequently, so a vaccine for one form may not work for a mutated form.

 

In America they keep talking about the need for testing huge amounts of people. One reason is, that if they find people with antibodies, then they could be allowed to resume their life. But if the virus has mutated will the antibodies work?

I think China is going for herd immunity. They dont care how many people die because at the end of it they will have a massive economic advantage over the countries that quite right you said will be in and out of lockdown for the forseeable future.

Actually, studies so far have shown that this virus is quite stable and is mutating much more slowly than, for example, ordinary flu does. This means that a vaccine if/when it comes should be effective.

I hope so but not what my doctor told me and not what I'm seeing on CNN and MSNBC.

 

According to that, even if someone has the anti-bodies, they still could get reinfected. I like your scenario better.

I apologize ahead for making this political, but I think many here would agree with me that CNN and MSNBC, with an election coming up, have an agenda for making this seem as awful as possible.

Sorry, I don't believe that. But to each his own. 

 

BTW my doctor, who also said that, is a Republican.

Once the virus is under control, the next focus better be on Corona terriorisme. 
Every wacko from fanatic jihadists to the bullied fat high-school kid could easily turn the world upside, simply by hanging out at crowded places or taking the morning commuter train.

A disgruntled Uighur that failed his last exam at his Beijing training camp could get himself infected and take a tour around the country.

Over the counter fever suppressing medicine will let him slip through temperature check points.
I hope plans are being made to mitigate this threat.

Failure at this exam is punished by death, so no worries about that...

 

Better focus on the monetary terrorism unleashed by the Federal Reserve, that will take far more lives than any other form of terror...

No one is seriously challenging the official narrative because the populations of the developed countries have been reduced to mindless overfed coach potatoes, while the populations of the developing countries have been kept in ignorance.

Everyday i have a look or 2 at the mainstream media, it's hard to say if it makes me angry or just sad, to see that around 75% of the sheeple are swallowing it without thinking twice.

..But we knew that already, didn't we.. Let's just try to stay alive, and witness the mayhem which will be the next chapter.

Shortcut to knowing you're reading a B.S. POV -- the use of the "word" SHEEPLE.
