No, realize I was kind of misleading here. Companies are still "open" but all personal not absolutely required working onsite is told to work from home (think administration, marketing, phone support and so on) - or simply has been sent home with pay or fired. They run with a minimum of personel required onsite to keep the operation and production up and running. So our vital infrastructure,  shipping indutry, food supply and so on is still up running   :-)

This isn't terribly different than what is happening here. Just slower and at a state and municipal level. Schools are closing and almost all sports cancelled and many companies are encouraging working remotely. Problem is we don't have the sense of collectivism. Some politicians are encouraging people to go out. Heck I got lectured on here by some dipstick yesterday for self quarantining. "Gubmint can't tell me what to do! This is America damnit!

Oh, it's definitely a terrible idea, but I think the risk of reinfection is near the bottom of the long list of reasons why.

If no reinfection, then expound on the terrible idea part

Thanks Happy,

The link is very good and gives a  more precise explanation of what I was trying to explain :-)

It is not sufficient however since it is already 3 days old. Yesterday at 12 o clock borders were also closed (like in Norway yesterday) and all danish citizens not living in other companies has been been told to come home immediatly. All news media (flanked with virus specialists) emphasizing today the urgent need to stay at home with your family unless you HAVE to go outside for urgent matters (and then stay at least 2 meters away from other people).

 

Btw. Germany just closed their border as well to Denmark.

Italy: 362 dead from corona last 24 hours. Denmark now have 3 dead, but we are expected to be 14 days "after" italy. But it is our hope that the early measures will keep our numbers lover...

What's to be gained? Now you have a segment of the population who has been infected who will likely have natural resistance to the disease. Okay, but that's going to happen naturally without intentionally infecting healthy people and having to provide care and quarantine for them. Inevitably a small portion of them will still develop serious illness and a very small portion may even die. The optics on that are gonna be fuging AWFUL.

Maybe the military has better things to do right now, understood, but, I don't think what we know about the virus right now tells us that 20 somethings in perfect health are going to die.  I also would not publicize is a lot.  Probably much less of a risk than a tour in Afghanistan.

Just thinking outside the box of quick ways to get (immunized help) in hospitals and police departments around the country if needed.

Same thought process as when you have wildfires burning up thousands of acres.  Backlighting, so to speak.  A controlled burn, sort of.

I know, just not much to do on a Sunday afternoon but talk about this crap

We don't know the long term affects of the virus. Maybe those who got Covid when they were you have an increased risk of cancer later.

Also we may not know the exact mortality rate  but young people are dying. This article suggests at a rate similar to SARS (.2%).

A question from left field here, just thinking out loud.

Knowing that the virus is pretty minimally troubling to people in their 30's, would it be a good idea, or would it have been a good idea, for the military to purposefully infect those with very good health, so that when they are over it, they would no longer be susceptible and be able to fill in for nursing and police forces, etc.

My wife says I am crazy, she probably right

Problem is, that nobody really knows how this virus attacks. We've already seen healthy guys in their 40s die, here in Italy.
@Danish Panther please be safe man. 3k more positives here today. From the stats, 124k have been tested so far.
Meanwhile, in the UK, nobody is taking any precautions, no event has been canceled...

Yeah I saw the post with the governor. That is the side of human nature I was trying to describe in my initial post. He has just not YET understood and accepted  that is absolutely key to stay home in figthing the virus.

For comparison - this was friday night in one of the biggest and most popular "bar" streets in denmark (Jomfru Ane gade):slide

Don't know if it was you or someone else posted a pic of the gov of Oklahoma, but that right there is the problem we are facing.  Idiots that have been voted into office leading people to their deaths and people too ill informed or too gd stupid to realize it.  The thing that pisses me off about it the most is they are basically endangering millions of folks with their bs.  When the dust settles from this some day, I hope they are brought up on charges.

Thanks @Al Morgan. We danes talk a lot about you guys down there, and follow the reports from espacialy Lombardy region. Just devastating to follow... However, incredible inspiring to see Italian people standing together and trying to keep up their good spirits by singing opera and so on from their balconys, in this very, very, sad time for the country.

UK ??? Just mind blowing approach. Heck, a dane just won All England Badminton tournament today. Noone here is talking about his victory - those who are, is all like "WTF - was this not cancelled?"

Take care and stay safe down there - hope you are very close to the tipping point...

    • In his post practice presser, Coach Matt Rhule said the team views rookie tackle Brady Christensen's best fit as being at right tackle. He added that Christensen can also slide inside to guard, but he prefers him at the tackle spot. Obviously, the team already has a starter in that role. However, Rhule also referred to Taylor Moton as "a guy who can flip-flop" between the tackle spots. Mentioned elsewhere that this makes me think they're gaining more confidence in his ability to play on the left. Rhule also reiterated today what he had previously said regarding Cam Erving, that he's primarily slotted as a left tackle right now. Erving hasn't been able to practice there due to an injury though. Hence, why other guys are getting looks. One of those guys is Dennis Daley. Previous expectation was that he'd be looked at primarily at guard this year, but it's starting to sound less and less like that's the case. Definitely sounds like the lineup on the OL is getting some different looks. Might not be so easy to predict what it's ultimately going to look like come week one.
    • His contract will be around 5 years 84 million
    • "What did you focus on? --- I don't want to disclose my personal goals, I'd rather show. " Translation : "None your f'n business how I train on my own or what training I do.   Next question."   At least that's what it sounded to me.   Anyway, he's here for mandatory camp so I could care less what he did when it wasn't mandatory.   Robby is here & ready to rock, and that's all that matters.
