COVID-19

13 Mar

I’ve seen some crazy shit in my time, from martial law enforced after Dr. King was assassinated to the day 9/11 happened as well as the many times people lost their mind every time the weather weenies said was gonna snow.

This coronavirus shit tops it all. We’ve had Ebola outbreaks, avian flu, SARS, MERS, even bad cases of the flu… and no one reacted to these things like they have been over the last week or so. States of emergency being declared across the country. The NBA and NHL has suspended their seasons… and with their respective playoffs coming up. March Madness, well, there’s a new March Madness going on that has nothing to do with NCAA basketball.

On Facebook, a lot of folks are having fun with the insane run on toilet paper and hand sanitizer… while others are getting all biblical and talking about Judgement Day and quoting the Book of Revelations, conspiracy theories going to bed and airlines actually slashing prices to get people to fly when a lot of people are quarantining themselves and before their local government does it. And the media, gods, they must be in heaven with all the reports about COVID-19; you know that this shot has gotten really crazy when The Weather Channel is talking about this virus and parts of the country getting whacked by tornadoes seem to be a secondary concern.

What the fuck is going on? And why? Went shopping today; the market usually has a Purel sheet dispenser as you come into the market but today? They had two… and one of them was very empty. The trash can for used sheets was overflowing onto the floor and people were still trying to stuff their used sheet in it – and the floor was littered with used sheets. We looked to the right… and all of the checkout lanes were jammed packed with people and I saw some of them with hand sanitizer, Lysol, huge packs of paper towels… and we saw one guy with an armful of frozen pizzas.

COVID-19 has arrived in my home state… and it’s insane. I’ve been getting emails from places I deal with online assuring me that they’re doing everything they can to fight the spread of the virus and our governor has declared a state of emergency – but only to activate special services and to activate the National Guard. So far, no schools,businesses, and state offices have been ordered closed but I’m wondering if this step is going to be the next one that’ll be announced.

The federal government seems to be running around like headless chickens; the current POTUS is on Twitter talking about fake news and, from what I’ve seen, just talking out of his ass and in the totally clueless fashion he’s displayed throughout his administration. I have no idea what the CDC is doing, oh, like figuring out a way to make this shit go away and you know the shit is bad when it’s now being reported that doctors and nurses are testing positive for the coronavirus.

Wall Street is shitting its pants and I saw something about Washington authorizing a shitload of money to help Wall Street through their downward tumble… and I’m wondering if it crossed anyone’s mind in DC that this money would be put to better use developing something to keep more people from dying from this virus and to help those who are sick – clearly, their priorities are a bit fucked up.

And I’m fairly sure that during this… financial crisis, somebody’s getting rich or richer because the market is drowning. I saw a question on Twitter asking if the election was gonna be canceled, making me wonder if we’ve ever had a national election canceled before. The political crazies are having a field day, from blaming Trump to blaming every Democrat they can point a finger at.

Insanity… and like I’ve never seen before.

    Yes dude it’s definitely crazy out there. Funny thing is I’ve always done things their telling people to do now. But I will say it’s gotten my spouse to wash his hands after going to the bathroom. Something I’ve noticed most men don’t do.

      I spend so much time washing my hands on a daily basis I keep a bottle of lotion next to the sink for when my skin eventually dries out…

    Well good for you, but I’m sure you’ve seen people not washing their hands. After going to the bathroom or any other time of the day.

      Sadly, I have… and it’s disturbing… and that’s on them. I never like my hands feeling “dirty” even if they aren’t really dirty… so I wash them.

        It may be on them, but they are the very people who want you to eat something they’ve cooked

        If I ate out a lot, sure… but I don’t – I can cook so I cook and I know my hands are clean!

        I don’t eat out a lot, friends, family, and others are in that same category. People just don’t wash their hands

    Most men these days wash their hands. But some don’t and some women don’t as well. Sometimes I say something but usually I just hold my tongue.
    This post is bang on. I’m not sure there’s anything we can do to stop this virus. I think all these measures are to slow it down so that we might find a vaccine in time to save many.

      In looking at the US government’s actions so far, it’s like they’re not really putting a lot of effort into stopping the spread of the virus other than the usual things one should do when they have the flu. This virus blindsided the medical community and they’re rushing to treat symptoms, find some existing antiviral that’ll help but containment? We’ve had major outbreaks of the flu (and other stuff) and I still think this reaction is oddly over the top; the reaction to it is baffling.
