just had a message from a friend in bologna itialy. couple of weeks ago she was like nothing going on, everything is pretty normal.

now she says very few people on the streets, and everyone has some type of anxiety.

so interesting attempt to guestimate the real numbers inside Iran. even if sort of in the ballpark, it is some terrifying high numbers.

well, this sounds like a good situation.

church pastor diagnosed in Washington D.C. tested positive with the virus, after he held service, shook hands, and gave communion to 500 people. he also participated in a church retreat, a conference, among other things. He had been sick for a while, hospitalized, developed pneumonia before he was finally tested. He probably exposed a few thousand people.

You know what is so bad with the job of priest, pastors, etc in this type of situation?

They tend to interact with a lot of old and sick people. nursing homes, hospitals, private homes of people that often would never see anyone else on a day to day basis.

seems this guy was at two to three masses in that time.

For the eventual community spread, If you want to avoid touching cash or the machines or the attendants hands when fueling up. Copec has a really great app that you load your credit card info onto . When you pull up to the pump you open app, scan the barcode on the forecourt, works from inside your car, It shows you the litres being filled and ammount as it's going into the tank. When done press confirm on your phone and it approves and sends you the electronic receipt to your email and takes payment off your card. Copec Muevo, it's very useful and even get a discount of the pump price.

Where you park your vehicle by the pump, usually under the roof, to fill up for gasoline , or it can be an open area with no roof.
