    I’m actually surprised at how blasé some people are about this.
    Well I'm sure that Lily will be along soon to once again proclaim were are all being hysterical, while Austrailia decides to really jump into the race with infection spread.

    Our rules are technically enforced here(now). The problem is the police are now undermanned to do it, and so our justice system is teetering on the brink. They need to do a call up and/or put the military police under the jurisdiction of the national police. We'll have to wait to see how it goes.

    It isn't bad here, as far as infections or medical system overload. The government has been asking people to minimize contact ect for three weeks now. As people have ignored those calls they have upped the level of strictures. They went to enforced lockdown last week. Then a bunch of youth decided to go partying at the beach on Saturday with #untiltomorrow.

    A lot of "people will grow tolerant" and "the flu is worse" BS has been floating around on social media here. We've only had one death so far.

    25 people are in critical condition(out of 945 current infections). The kicker is that 15 of those 25 are under 30. The other 10 were elderly citizens that caught it from the dude who died when he spread it around their assisted living facility.

    Our biggest problem is to date that our medical staff are being hit hard with self-isolation due to exposure by people who are supposed to be in isolation still showing up for regular, none critical, medical procedures.

    They've already canceled all dental appointments and drafted the dental workers into the response staff.

    It's the selfishness of people that is going to cause various parts of this to get a lot worse. The question is how much before the government seriously cracks down.

    I hope you’re okay. Some countries seem to be having a really fucking shit time and some not affected at all.

    Wiped with double-ply today for first time ever. Beginning to regret life choices.

    Stage 2 human trials were called off this morning. Stage 1 proved ineffective. My source says they think the virus might still be mutating. PM made the same assertion in his address last night when he threatened a national quarantine if people didnt start abiding by the enforced lockdown.

    So this may take longer to pass than a lot initially hoped.

    We continue to support all the educators, swim instructors, music teachers, coaches in our lives because they’re showing up for my child I’ll be showing up for them to keep them in their jobs.
    The second part of your post ensures that the first continues and gets worse. Here's an idea, pay them without requiring them to show up and put themselves and their loved ones at risk. Or continue and watch as your healthcare system collapses under the weight.

    You said you already knew how to do it with "forest materials".

    Either you know how to do it or you don't.

    Stop moving goal posts, stop stalling for time and stop with distractions.

    Either back down or man up, just one damn time.

    Aparently it is giving the Iranians fits over whether or not their religious purity will allow them to use it.

    Yep.

    I have a couple of ideas.

    First is palatable water.

    Second is filtering particles in the low-end nanometer range (1-15nm).
