Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

So.......where is that silent support for those that are sick of the bullshit? Support for the protests up 10 points in the last week of February. https://www.emol.com/noticias/Nacional/2020/03/02/978334/apoyo-movilizaciones-encuesta-cadem.html I am not sure I understand “movilizaciones”. Isn’t tha...

Re: Corona Virus!

the spooky thing about that guestimate, depending on what multiplier you use, and assumptions about certain countries, we might already be there. for instance, another top irian official died overnight. Iran, by itself, probably has as many cases as china now, or will shortly. probably north of 50,...

Re: Corona Virus!

If I got a conspiracy theory to push, Trump's administration fucked with the cdc purposly slowing the testing and getting tests out to the states to stop the numbers of coronavirus cases from being known. They had several months, and they are just now starting to get tests out to states; while ever...

funny, now that I look at that quote out of context, and in this context, I realise that I probably would assume it was the Fed Powell too.

Re: Corona Virus!

and this the line that creeps me out more than anything: Powell also thinks that a Trump government is unlikely to choose reduced economic activity , writing in a recent research note that "our base case hypothesis is that a Trump government is unlikely to choose reduced economic activity, and supp...

Re: Corona Virus!

My friend sent me a craigslist link. 3M N95 masks mostly >$10 per mask. Over a year ago, I bought a box of 40 medical/surgical N95 masks for $25 (for attic cleaning). I still have most of them. People are buying them but I don’t see people wearing them when shopping YET. Increased hand washing by th...

first case in Oregon, and also another unknown source.

Re: Corona Virus!

I’m confused on Chile’s Official Covid19 status. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/locations-confirmed-cases.html#map As of 11:00 a.m. ET February 27, 2020 Chile is not on the “confirmed” map. Has Chile actually confirmed the last case or are they keeping cases in some type of testing limbo?

Japan has closed all schools for 1 month, they are taking covid 19 seriously.
Sort of. Working parents have to park their kids somewhere. According to this BBC article, “Officials say child day care centres and after-school facilities can remain open.”
