Gov Cuomo has said that about 62,000 people in New York with medical experience, including retired doctors and nurses, have volunteered to help at the hospitals on the front lines.

Truly remarkable. True heroes.

The rest of us are not of the same ilk.

+1 on that. After a week of stay at home in effect and before that a week+ of hoarding, there's still no Toilet paper or paper towels, ffs. I KNOW the shelves have been restocked in that time.

Thank GOD I'm a guy that lives alone and 6 pack of TP lasts like over a month.

Itís been an odd time . Iíve spent most of it with my children, with a few hours interspersed trying to cobble together an online teaching experience for my students , which will start on April 6th. We are currently on spring break, but of course who can tell.
Iíve taken great joy in seeing my kindergarten sonís reading take off. He reads remarkably well; Dr. Seuss is his author of choice at the moment.
He and I are just starting Latin. Duolingo for now, and some text books in a few weeks, I think.

No hoarding here, but I am disgusted at what many others are doing. My wife hasnít been able to find flour in weeks. People need to relax and continue to get their food supplies as they normally would.

I have a friend who contracted polio as a child. Lived in an iron lung for 3 years. He's quite an amazing character. He rides his motorcycle, and rides it long, long distances. He is also a tireless advocate for polio vaccinations as you might imagine.

Abbott is set to market a fast point-of-care COVID-19 test, delivering positive results in 5min and negative results in 13min. Will deliver 50K tests/day to start. Kudos to Abbott Labs and to the Fed. govt for providing funds. Damn, that was fast.
In other news, Italy bought 650,000 of China's tests...they don't work. May have something to do with why the number of cases in China have been going down.

People forget that disease would sweep through periodically and there were often no cures. Polio was a very big deal, indeed, Salk and Sabin were practically miracle-workers.

Sir Isaac Newton was relegated to his home when the universities in England shut down during the Bubonic Plague.

He created some of the greatest formulations and ideas man had ever known to that point in history while quarantined.

A good life does not depend on the unchosen circumstances one finds themselves in.

It all depends on what you do with that life.

Time to rock this thing guys.

People have given into the fear . You can't say anything postive because it be drowned out in negatives posts
