This mornings summary :
The number of cases in Europe continues to rise, with more than 10,000 in Italy
Germany's Merkel says 60-70% of German population likely to be infected
A UK health minister, Nadine Dorries, is among 382 cases in Britain
Bank of England cuts interest rates from 0.75% to 0.25% to shore up economy
As spread in China slows, Beijing to quarantine all international arrivals
There are now more than 1,000 confirmed cases in the US
Troops will deliver food to quarantined people in New Rochelle, New York
Google's parent company asks North American staff to work from home

Meanwhile in Chile they are more interested in squabbling over police use of excessive force and school kids calling for strikes and sit ins at school on the two year anniversary of Piñera coming to power. Give me a friggin break, think I will self isolate indefinitely, just to keep away from all the idiots in this country .

"There are no libertarians during a pandemic", how trump is being forced to be a socialist or risk loosing the election.

but oddly, the far left, burn the government to the ground socialist and communist in Chile, are going to be forced in to the same position as Trump.

Whats the size of the fine for not voting?
If it's less than 100 000 Peso, I'm not voting!
Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.

Idiots or opportunists?

The US gov has been similarly sluggish in their response. Looking at it from a purely rational pov.

Which age group has the highest death rates from the coronavirus?
Which age group is the costliest to governments (hint... pensions), and the least productive?

Not saying it is a conspiracy, just a gigantic opportunity for governments around the world to save money on one of their biggest expenses... present and upcoming pension payouts.

Yeah that thought has crossed my mind too, but wont the economic damage and public health costs offset any savings?
