Probably coded a COVID-19 death too since was somehow related.

As for the furloughs, yep, heard that from nurses too.  You would not believe the number of surgeries that are elective, it's a huge portion of the hospital surgeries.  Once elective surgeries were cancelled or delayed until deemed "safe", hospital staff had to be cut.   They have budgets to meet like any other business.

Its not hospital related but related to furlough's.

I was working with a rep from a different company and all of a sudden he went out of touch in March.  Late last week he emailed me getting our projects back up and running again.  He explained that on a Friday at 2pm back in March they just walked up to him and told him he was on furlough...effective immediately.  Leave everything, and leave NOW!  WTH?  Talk about a bad way to handle it.

I was reading that stroke cases are down 40% nationwide. Docs believe people are ignoring symptoms to avoid hospitals. 
 

My friend was saying most of his ICU is Covid, which doesn’t make sense since it his Ward was almost always full from other types of patients before Covid. They’re all wondering where these other cases are (strokes, heart attacks, cancer surgery patients, etc).

He thinks they are going to start seeing a wave of really sick (non Covid) patients soon. People who didn’t seek care or didn’t get the amount of medical attention needed because of the focus on Covid.

Whelp! It's official. For the first time in 17 years I'm not gonna work.

All shows have been cancelled. I mean I'm lucky as fug that I wound up in a position where this isn't going to ruin us or anything. 

But still... Fug.

A huge downside from all the large gatherings to protest will be a major spike in COVID cases over the next two weeks.

Enormous gatherings of people in every major city standing shoulder-to-shoulder screaming at the top of their lungs in the midst of an incredibly contagious respiratory viral pandemic...what’s the worst that could happen?

I wholeheartedly support the protests and I can’t think of a better cause than fighting injustice, but damn if these protests aren’t damn near optimal conditions for the spread of the virus...

COVID19 is real.  It kills people.  All over the world.   It also is new.  

If COVID would have been a massively lethal virus? We would all be dead.  Because COVID highlighted just how horrific we handle actual pandemics in 2020.   

Wrong, it's a gigantic global conspiracy to make the President look bad.

Why just yesterday there was somebody wandering around my neighborhood asking if I had any family members who had died recently so they could code their deaths as COVID.  There are much more credible sources of information out there than the LAME (see what I did there) stream media, like this round man with a red face who sells supplements and yells a lot you should check out on YouTube.

Actually, if it was massively lethal, it wouldn’t have spread as much. That’s the thing about viruses, the most lethal don’t spread as much because there isn’t a long incubation/non-symptomatic spread. The ones that are so deadly don’t get the chance to spread wildly. I’m also talking about the modern era versus the Black Plague days where hand washing and social distancing/PPE weren’t the norm.

The RNC convention is moving from Charlotte.  Politics aside, this will be a blow to the local economy already missing out on revenue from all the other cancelled events.  The new city and state has yet to be determined.

I don’t know if it will be a blow. Given the current climate with protests etc, Charlotte was probably looking at a huge mess in August. I think we dodged a bullet.

Odds are they move the convention to SC or TX.

SC wouldn't surprise me, but we really don't have a city like Charlotte to host it. All our major cities (Charleston, Greenville/Spartanburg, Myrtle Beach) are small compared to Charlotte.

Definitely a punch to gut economically. NC will lose out on millions of dollars at a time when it is really needed.

The national guard will be locking down any place that hosts this thing. Very little commerce will happen. Hotels and restaurants may lose out, but they may also be avoiding damage and looting.
