Oh right, so this virus is a gift to the old. Can't believe I didn't realise this.
Empathy for one's fellow humans, which in turn only to concern and a natural urge to lend a helping hand, is completely redundant when one has the great Canadian physician Sir William Osler in one's clipboard.

ignore the mention of Trump
All experts I heard say that the RO of Covid-19 is not 2 but 4-5.
The relatively long asymptomatic infectious period suggests a higher rather than a lower number - borne out by the fact that most of the stuff politicians and health experts are repeating suggests that about 80% of the population are going to get it.

Others blame the Republicans. Some blame the Chinese. Everybody blames Trump. Everybody needs a villain, evidently.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

I'll blame any public official who has the balls to accept responsibility for their own failings in this crisis.

(so I probably can't blame anyone)

Those older folk on the forum may remember the one hit wonder "My Sharona"

Surely some clever band somewhere has produced an altered cover, "My Corona"

Should be a really catchy song... :tea:

"His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it." —From the OSS’s psychological profile of Adolf Hitler
