    Well certain hospitals here in central MA (I live 4 and 5 miles from both Umass and St Vs) Still are having strict rules on who gets tested...the drive in one in Lowell is much more lax. Seems everyone still isn't on the same page.

    Hopefully next week they will.

    Exactly. If anything that article contradicts what Lurker is trying to get us to believe.

    True, however South Korea is producing 350k/day. They’ve only tested 350k domestically. SK reached a state of containment fairly early that didn’t need dragnet testing like we do. They’ve largely been exporting their tests.


    [Mod edit by Ian: Changed SK to South Korea after spending 30-seconds trying to decipher it ;)]

    I don't fault him because he may not have known it, I'm sure he was just trying to find something relevant about the topic and noticed that.

    From the Wiki page:
    "Because of negative rulings by fact-checking sites and user trust surveys, Western Journalism was blacklisted by Google and Apple News, and by 2017 its Facebook traffic declined to near zero. The company responded by changing its name in 2018 to The Western Journal, hiring trained copy editors, and introducing a corrections page.[6]"

    So at least they made the effort to fix it, although in fairness, I would have to now place this site among those we probably shouldn't post in here moving forward.

    Please watch this 18 min. video. This Dr. is saying Covid-19 is not causing ARDS (pneumonia) type of disease but oxygen deprivation (like high altitude sickness) and use of ventilators needs to be adjusted to properly care for these patients.
    Do COVID-19 Vent Protocols Need a Second Look?

    Sounds like a lot of people may have died because of lack of knowledge about this "new" virus that is nothing like the flu.

    My wife went to an ER on the Saturday night before last and she was the only one there. There was a separate ER set up for COVID patients with tents, etc. I can confirm that we were hesitant to go because of fear of exposure, so I am sure that others have similar reservations.

    EDIT: I was required to leave the premises while they checked her out, which was nerve-wracking to say the least.

    I think we should continue to leave the medical decisions to politicians.

    There was dangerous reporting last night from Tucker Carlson on God's channel saying the deaths are being inflated for the medias purpose. That **** is dangerous and spreading false news like that to the people who worship that channel like the bible is not what we want during a pandemic. I wish stations would get on the same page and report facts across the board and not conspiracy theories. Leave that for after or never..but not now as our nurses are risking their lives and 2K a day are dying.

    They need the real news with real experts on helping..not muddying the waters

    Regarding the government money that is going to small businesses...I really hope our gov’t will be diligent in checking on each one that receives “loans” to continue to pay their laid off employees

    This “loan” turns into a grant if they re-hire those employees.

    So 2 things that should be checked;

    -Did they really lay off they’re employees?
    -Are their laid off employees collecting unemployment? We can’t have double-dipping

    Let’s say a small company that employs 100 electricians continues to work normally. We can’t allow this company to get any of these funds

    Lurker lives in the deepest corners of the web where most people get scared to be. Kinda like:

    @IllegalContact
    @QuantumMechanic

    Why have so many coronavirus patients died in Italy?

    here’s your proof. Maybe take the time to read it. Unless you feel it’s fake news

    And the next day like clockwork you hear whatever talking point was spewed by the real Tucker, being repeated here by the "Tuckers." Our own Lurker went there from the get go. :rolleyes: Others will follow shortly.

    Agreed. I don't get this at all. As someone who doesn't really follow this bizarre "us vs them" thing that goes on, this whole thing is just so strange to me. :(
