Preface: My oldest daughter has a job translating phones calls for deaf people and until the FCC grants permission for her and the others to work from home,she is forced to work with others in a building that does not have the social distancing capabilities. I have made it my job to get her to and from work. She does not drive and relies on public transportation. 
That being said.
 I did my dad thing today and took my kid to work. 
I noticed a disturbing trend that no one seems to give a sh*t if they die or not here in the Valley of the Sun. Uber and Lyft still doing business, valley metro buses still packing in riders. Watched a bunch of people going into a Denny's, Taco Bell,and Filiberto's. There is an Arcade and indoor go kart track running at full tilt right now. Construction on valley streets active as f**k. Construction sites still going strong with workers everywhere,and traffic becoming an issue once again. 
If you do not have to be outside,stay the fu*k inside for Christ sakes but, I digress. If you feel the need to be out in public and this virus attacks you until you die? Fine by me, more stupid people for me to not have to deal with. 
Thinning out of the herd is always neccessary to keep the more healthy and intelligent ones alive and well.
Until my daughter gets an authorization to work from home,she is being forced to be outside. The deaf community depends on her to translate phone calls, it's a trade off. They can continue with keeping up with the times safely indoors and my daughter has a chance of contracting this virus? Very disturbing to say the least.
My rant for the day.
If the administrators find this distasteful, by all means remove it and remove me as well.

Easy there, sparky. We're on your side.
Try "subtle hints" like THOROUGHLY hosing them down with a giant can of Lysol, for starters.
Seriously, get her a mask, some latex gloves & A Tyvek coverall for the entrance "shock effect"  though. Perhaps a bell & she can chant "UNCLEAN! . . . .UNCLEAN!

Myself and my girlfriend with her kids have locked ourselves down,my exwife,her boyfriend and his kids have locked theirselves down at his place,and my daughter's keep inside at their moms house until my oldest needs to go to work and then I leave just to get her to and from. Watching these idiots running around without a care and disregarding public safety borders on the insane and criminal. 
On a lighter note. We had a man and woman here decide that they were going to self medicate theirselves by ingesting tablets designed to clean algae from fish tanks. Apparently it has the same effect as malaria pills. They however took several days worth at once. The man died within 30 minutes, the lady is in intensive care currently.  They did not have the virus but just in case they did...

yeah...  agreed with above sentiments.  

The stupid are of the opinion that “if I can’t see it, it doesn’t exist.”  The germ theory of disease is too, too advanced for the mental midgets.

Very few here took it seriously until it started spreading, and fast. Then they started paying attention. The prevailing attitude seemed to be "It's South Dakota. We are isolated enough.". Well, not nearly enough as it turns out.

True, but the Black Death happened in the 1300's and the Spanish Flu in late 1918. My problem with the Chinese Virus is in today's world globalization has made the world much smaller. But only if the host nation shares the news and asks for help, instead of covering it up thinking they can manage it and not appear weak to the rest of the world. How one country can make so many suffer and still not take responsibility is beyond me... I'm having a really hard time not feeling bitter and resentment towards that regime. Please delete if I've said to much.

Ok. I get half of it.  Let's say "Screw the Irish!", and I'll ask Irish in North Ireland or Republic of Ireland ?

The Chinese in Taiwan seems to have it under control being so close to China. Yes, should be deleted.

Why should what HT has stated be deleted Sidneyw? Because you do not agree with the fact that the Chinese government tried to bury this as fast as they could without letting the world know?
They did the same thing with the Chinese flu pandemic of 1968 and the original SARS virus as well. People are contracting this virus globally and the death toll continues to rise and that is a given. The what if here being, if the Chinese government had announced their f**k up quicker,the world might not be witnessing this on such a scale as it is now. This is the third time in my life that I have been subjected to something bad originating from China.

I’m tired of saying it and thinking it, however my being tried of it doesn’t change that releasing this terrible illness is a crime against humanity.  All fingers thus far, IMHO, point to China as the culprit.  ‘Course it could be an Islamic terrorist thing, however.. 

No changing the situation that someone did this, and needs to held accountable.  The sort of accountable where someone is lined up against the wall and shot.  Just IMHO.

What is the translation of the language above...  country of origin?

When I said it wasn't like the plague, (Black Death) I was meaning the 30% death toll.
 
This is nothing like that, but folks have panicked out of all sensible proportion.
The main pandemic is in peoples minds.    I would not call this a pandemic myself.
 
Same with the Spanish flu,....airborne, stand at the windward side of Walmart and most would cop it. 
This is not like that.
