    .... maybe just use a tourniquet or something down there while one is sick for two weeks?

    OK, this is the how bad the fear is getting. I live about two hundred yards from the post office in the ruins of a very small rural town. As I walked to the PO, I saw a lady alone in the parking lot, no other cars or people, but still she was there holding a cloth over her face.

    Yep, it will just take awhile.
    The repercussions from what has happened economically haven't even come close to setting it yet.
    People/employers are still in a daze.
    Wait until unemployed 25-35 year olds start moving back home to live with mom and dad.
    Take your polls then ....

    Employers will figure out how to do more with less,
    or how do less (see: trashed economy) with less of course.

    Robots, automation.
    If any manufacturing business was on the cusp of converting some part of their processes to automation to eliminate the human-dead-weight, this would seal the deal.
    (once/if the economy returns to normal of course).

    I wonder how many small restaurants/"eateries" are getting ideas of just converting to take out, eliminating service staff, downsizing.
    Some here aren't really doing that bad. It might even more feasible with less headaches. Why have a sit down food establishment if you don't have to any more.

    Here is one example I came across:

    Dee Kenny, 64, who works security at casinos on the Strip, said that she has underlying health issues and that for her to feel safe, she would like employers to provide workers with personal protective equipment and to test all employees for the virus and its antibodies.
    "There's no proper protocols in place anywhere," Kenny said. "I'm not going to go back until I'm not at risk."

    So, this person is never going back to work. Ever.
    This is from a news report about Vegas opening back up. No reason to link to it.

    I actually fear that demands like this will lead to policy being made that requires testing to go back to work, possibly routinely, and more of these silly "must wear PPE" in public dictates from local (maybe state) governments and certainly from government funded entities.

    This seems important: Coronavirus: NY antibody study estimates 13.9% of residents have had the coronavirus, Cuomo says

    The paper will obviously have problems.

    That fraction of positives (compared to 1.5%) is obviously not vulnerable to the same statistical problems.

    C'mon Shiva. Try harder.

    And here is a podcast I did yesterday with Cliff Saunders, about 10 minutes long: Listen to the GenX Fit Episode - How will the fitness industry change because of Covid-19? on iHeartRadio | iHeartRadio

    Note it is exactly the same service sector jobs that were created by the economic QE goose, that were quickly lost under Cov19. I'm just waiting for the announcement of UBI and digital currency (something that was included in the latest bill, but did get removed before it passed-so clearly it's ready to go).

    I always suspected a low IFR and widespread prevalence. The difference between me, and some others here, is I donít accept flawed analysis of questionable data as confirmation of my suspicions.
