Coronavirus Thread III: The Show Must Not Go On (READ OP)

Postby Tinhampton » Sat Apr 04, 2020 1:56 pm

>>> WHERE CAN I LEARN MORE?
>>> WHAT HAS THE VIRUS DONE? At the start of 2020, coronavirus was merely a novel pneumonia that wasn't SARS but was most certainly being carried about by a smattering of people from Wuhan. Fast forward a few months and we've got 2.5 million cases, over 90% of the world's student population isn't going to school, EURO 2020's become EURO 2021, Tokyo 2020's become Tokyo 2021 but it's still Tokyo 2020, almost all sportsball's been suspended for the next few weeks, the list of other events that have been cancelled are too numerous to reel off here, billions of people are under lockdown - need I go on? Even IM has been forced to begin one of their recent hypotheticals about international travel with the phrase "Assuming there's no virus going around..."

>>> WHAT CAN I DO HERE? This is a catch-all coronavirus thread. You may now begin to grumble about it, but Please note! that Max Himself has stated that the moderators will issue bans against those who peddle misinformation such as "claim[s that] the virus is a government conspiracy, or that people should ignore expert medical advice" - so please stay indoors if you can, wash your hands, keep at least two metres from other people, and do continue to post here as you normally did (subject to the temporary edict, of course). OK, now you can start grumbling... or, for that matter, continue grumbling about DPA-related coronavirus medical supply diversion from the second thread.

5th-9th April 2020 (246 voters): How scared are you of contracting coronavirus?
    I: Very scared: 24 (10%)
    II: Somewhat scared: 58 (24%)
    III: A bit scared: 73 (30%)
    IV: Not scared at all: 59 (24%)
    !: Been there, done that...: 8 (3%)
    Eh, whatever - I hope David Hasselhoff's safe: 24 (10%)

12th-17th April 2020 (263 voters): When do you think your area will lift all restrictions?
    I: Before the end of next month: 43 (16%)
    II: At some point in Summer 2020: 111 (42%)
    III: By the end of 2020: 58 (22%)
    IV: At some point in 2021: 24 (9%)
    !: Never - get used to the new normal...: 25 (10%)
    My state/country has not yet imposed any restrictions: 2 (<1%)

Ninth! Meanwhile, in the Guardian (which has finally managed to work out how to handle seven-digit numbers):
>>> "Officials from Germany to Spain said they expect the stringent lockdown conditions to stretch for weeks longer"
>>> Derbyshire's PCC warns that "“isolation fatigue” could [endanger] the lockdown, especially after the likely decision to extend the measures beyond the current three-week period."

Now all we need is the return of Zurkerx' testing station and a few other tidbits and doodahs, then we'll be set for another twenty-five-score pages... :P

You're just another monster, and thanks to your actions, someone else will eventually become as warped and twisted as you. Never forget that the best of us are just the best of a bad lot.

If this goes how the horror movies tell me, some unethical but brilliant Big Pharma company will create a drug with at least one X or Z in its name, which will cure people but then turn 90% of the population into zombies.

Thread needs a poll
The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion … but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.
