I dont get how some people find this funny. Im not saying i wish people who laugh at this get Coronavirus, but if they did (Madhuvan) I'd have zero sympathies 

PS: Read my comment. Boris Johnson started this Herd Immunity thing.

I'm sure BoJo will be fine, more concerning is his newly pregnant partner.

There’s nothing remotely funny about Boris getting sick. In fact, it’s incredibly sad. Sad because the people of the U.K. have no one steering the ship.
 

The ship saw the iceberg ahead and decided to maintain course, just brace for it head on. They’re now hitting the iceberg, and the Captain got injured. It’s sad for the passengers.

In which case there's no need for them to self isolate with each other.

This is a great article. Lengthy, but definitely worth a read from beginning to end.

 

How the Pandemic Will End

The U.S. may end up with the worst COVID-19 outbreak in the industrialized world. This is how it’s going to play out.

Peace,

They've been isolating from each other for weeks apparently.

Apparently, Mark Blum has passed due to complications after catching COVID 19.

 

Mark Blum has had many roles over the years (mostly TV & Theatre) however probably his most memorable role was in Crocodile Dundee where he played Susan's New York boyfriend.

 

(not sure if it's been posted already - this may have already been posted as he passed 2 days ago)

 

RIP

She'll be fine until Boris abandons her like he did with his other familes.

Surprise surprise, we can add coronavirus to the pile of things that somehow became a culture war:

It's not a culture war. It is very clear proof of what I've been saying here for the past few days. The conservative base in the US is a cult, much like a religion. They get told what to believe by Trump, Fox News and prominent conservative voices like Rush Limbaugh. Science and any facts that contradict the official position are rejected. The information they are given is highly curated, slanted and sometimes downright manufactured. Independent voices within the movement are viciously attacked and silenced, or tossed out. 

 

The official cult line is that coronavirus is nothing but a harmless flu and that businesses need to open ASAP. My uncle, who is a pharmacist (at a hospital of all places) and should know better, spouts this shit as well. They are brainwashed and do not have the ability to think for themselves.

 

So, we can chalk this up like climate change. It is real and one side clearly sees the issue, while the other side of the aisle refuses to see anything beyond their noses.

Good article except here:

China is indeed the villain. It should be blamed.


There is no villain, and casting things in such light seems silly to me.
