So how everyone's doing with the C-Virus?  Anyone impacted heavily?  We've had today and Monday cancelled for school, expecting to return Tuesday.  Unfortunately, all the games I want to play come out later next week, so I don't get to binge those over my long weekend.

I went to the supermarket today.  At lot of shelves were much barer than usual.  There were no eggs left.

Yeah, just got back from the store, myself.  Tons of stuff had been emptied.  Ultimately I didn't have too much trouble getting what I needed, but people need to calm down a bit.


I have always had a persistent cough, just throat issues I guess. I am given a lot space nowadays! Otherwise I've been work from home last week and will be next week. The commute is great, at least!

my classes are going online starting next week, and extending to April 14th.

one of my senior center classes are cancelled for the time being, the other one will be doing health checks at the gates.

and unrelated, i pinched a nerve in my back, and my right leg is now numb. but it's getting better :PP

Schools are closed here for a month, gatherings of 250+ are suspended for the same amount of time. I'm not ridesharing for the time being. A basketball game I was planning on going to has been cancelled.

It's all very interesting. It's a pandemic in the true sense, as even celebrities/political elites are equally vulnerable (but as to treatment...). It brings us all together, in a weird way, and reminds us that we're living in the same house.

Two weeks a go I came down with a cold but I passed it now. Whenever I had the virus or not I can't tell. I still got a bit of a cough but other than that I feel fine.

I too noticed shelves being bare due to concerned shoppers and the newspapers have Boris Johnson saying "If you have the cough, you get the week off." Easier said than done to those who don't get paid on absence.

All in all the media may spin the coronavirus as some sort of deadly plague but really it's the elderly and infirm who are more at threat to it.

Heres a site I found that doesn't just tell how many are infected and died but also how many have recovered:
(Over half infected have recovered.)

I'm not saying you shouldn't take precautions against the coronavirus or prevent spread of it, but I believe it's important to encourage others not to be afraid of the virus, that there is hope of recovery and you're not going to just die if you happen to catch it.

I got a stomach thing before the whole craze started, but that was it. Haven't really been feeling any different than normal.

To be honest, at this point I am unsure what bothers me the most.

For reasons personal to me, it wouldn't be great to catch the virus It probably won't end me, though.

But I'm thinking the virus is here to stay for a while.
And whatever actions they want to take will hold easily for the rest of the month perhaps.
But if the spread doesn't get better, measures will have to stay for a lot longer and I don't think society can handle that.


Do you remember Foot and Mouth, Bird Flu and SARS epidemics? I bet the coronavirus will blow over just like that. I'm sure those mentioned viruses are still around today just not as severe to be a bother to anyone due to precautions taken.

none of them got everyone up in lock down and quarantine, tho


Well, for fear of sounding a bit dickish, my situation doesn't really change much.

I'm unemp,oyed and live in a small town in a small country. ALl my hobbies are indoors either way. So I kinda just keep doing my thing with videos, drawing and so forth.

The MAIN change is that, for the time being, every event I was looking forward to is canceled. WhichI guess is going to save me some travel costs, but yeah, I am not gonna lie, I am already feeling a bit of cabin fever from that.

So, for now, I am going to visit a friend today (I checked in, he's not feeling ill) and try to do that whenever possible. My dad has put himself in quarantine since he's one of the more-at-risk groups (60+ and under prostate cancer treatment - benign, but nonetheless, his immune system ain't te greatest), so I am thinking I'll go hang with him a little more in the following evenings to watch some movies.



These epidemics never had NEARLY the numbers and reach this already has (SARS had, what, 8k cases total?), and they didn't "blow over" but were actually fought back.

As for it being "spun" as a deadly plague, the very page you just linked actually shows the stats as even worse than the reporting I saw. Resolved cases are either death or "recovery", which add up to 5440+72553 = 77993. That gives us the mortality rate of 7%, which is actually mad. If half the people in just the US get it, as is projected as one of the likely scenarios, that's over 11 million people dead. On the other hand, the most recent media reported stat for mortality I've seen is 3.5%, which is half that, but it's still 5.5 million dead. Just in the US. How is that not deadly?

And then there's the issue that it's not just a dice roll "oh I'm infected, do I die Y/N oh I rolled N, cool, let me get on with my life". The course of the disease suuuuucks - and there's a chance that your survival might require the use of equipment like respirators. There's only so many of those to go around - what do you think happens when the number of simultaneous cases goes high enough?

Finally, the "recovery". People do recover in that they don't die and are no longer actively infected, but you do not get back to where you were before infection. Your lungs get damaged and stay damaged, so you get to live with diminished lung capacity from then on forward - it might be an up to 30% loss.

Let's not be blase about this and pretend this is just some "media spin" and nothing to be worried about.


A few of them did. I recall SARS was big in the news dureing 2002-'04 although it only claimed 800 lives over 8000 infected. If anything SARS was the prequel to the coronavirus given both diseases are related to one another.
During the 90s farmers were concerned for Mad Cow which ruined their livelyhood and killed many bovine. Foot and Mouth followed not long after killing 6-8 million livestock.

But over time people learned how to prevent the spread of these epidemics, the medicines and vaccinations needed for them to the point that now days these epidemics are regarded a thing of the past.

My point is is that the whole "coronavirus epidemic" won't be around forever. Doesn't mean the coronavirus itself will just go away but eventually when more people are recovering than getting sick from it the media will move onto something else to scare us all with.

But for now people are genuinely scared of the virus, panic-buying because of it, shun those who have a nasty cough and fear they will die if they get it.

By blow over I don't mean the coronavirus or the epidemics we had in the past just eventually worn out and just vanished. We have vaccinations and medicines these days which made these epidemics come to an end that we no longer have to worry about them.

The black plague for example. It happened, the bubonic virus is still out there, just our level of hygene and medicine has come such a long way that the idea of a nother black plague just seems unlikely to ever happen.

The mortality rate is bad sure given hundred-thousands are infected but the recovery still outnumbers the death. And even if those who have recovered who may have some physical damage can be assured to know they can continue living with their loved ones.

I'm not trying to dismiss the coronavirus as some "phase" that shouldn't be taken likely. It's still an epidemic and the practice of prevention and hygene against the virus is still vital and needed, I agree that there is not enough respirators and medical equipment to go around, especially if the survivors have lasting damage.

It's just I believe it's important people shouldn't downright fear the virus or believe it is an absolute death-sentence. News media are quick to post how many people have been infected and how many people have died but not much news on how many have recovered or how many are managing after recovering.
I also think it's important to teach that this epidemic won't be around forever, that we won't spend the rest of our lives in fear of the cornavirus like some sort of bogeyman that'll get you anywhere, anytime for years to come.


I hope we'll go back to normal in a month or 2 tops...

As for the media, hard to say here, as it is a rollercoaster of happy and bad news.
A lot of stress on not starting to panic buy (what the heck is up with toiletpaper anyways?)
also on one hand so much news about lock downs and experts saying everyone needs to be locked up in their house and news about so many infections and death etcetera

then there's news about how so many people only having mild symptoms and about some forms of de-escalation... (eg, read in an update that pregnant women and babies are no longer considered a vulnerable group for corona)


Growing up in the 90s and 20'00s and seen a few of these epidemics pass by, news I've heard of those past epidemics last around two to three years or so.
As a child back then it feels like these scary things just "passed" after awhile.
But just to be clear I'm not saying the coronavirus will just give up and bog-off after awhile nor am I dismissing how many lives it has ruined. But I don't believe the coronavirus will be a constant international worry forever... I mean it will be but not on the scale it is now, we will get a sense of normality back eventually.

The news here usually have the coronavirus as the headline and usually tells how many have died, that how many infected in UK are unknown, makes it sound like it's a veil of sickness is slowly covering the world.

But looking at YouTube videos on how the coronavirus works, how the virus is more harm to elderly and infirm due to lack of immunity and most importantly individuals who have recovered from the virus, such as that lady from Seattle who recovered and shared her experiance.

I believe it's important we shouldn't fear the coronavirus, especially fear death if we catch it.
But we should still be cautious about it, such as preventing infection and not passing it off as just a flu if one is infected.



But the thing is, we don't have those. I don't know about the foot-and-mouth disease, but for the other two you seem to be under the impression that the bird flu and SARS have faded into the background and we're now treating them pretty much like the common cold. No. SARS isn't a problem now because aggressive quarantine measures and successful containment lead to it being erradicated - the strain that infects humans, at least. That virus is still around, yes, but only in its animal-only version from before it mutated. If we get unlucky and it mutates again, we have nothing new to tackle it with. The story with the bird flu is similar in that we also don't have anything, and we're lucky the problem is only specific strains. The "treatment" for it in birds is to just cull the entire flock. As for in humans, the worry was that it would mutate to cross the bird-human barrier but it never actually happened on a large scale. If it did, we'd have been hosed. Vaccines? Medicines? We don't even have proper ones for the regular flu - the yearly flu vaccine is only ~40% effective at preventing it (though it does make the course of the disease much less bad if you do catch it if you had the vaccine, so don't leave with the impression that the vaccine is pointless because it absolutely is not), and that is actively developed and refined every year. We'd have nothing for the new strain of bird flu other than procedures. This is nothing like the bubonic plague which can nowadays just be hit with antibiotics, pretty much.

You don't seem to appreciate that this mortality rate is extremely high - the Spanish Flu was one of the deadliest plagues to ever hit humanity and its mortality rate was somewhere the single digits too (though "above 2.5%" is the only consistent number I can find). It might not be the death sentence to whoever gets it... but if they do get it and unwittingly spread it around, it will be a death sentence to someone they know.

And the media do talk about how many people recover - perhaps it's just the media you've been looking at that don't? I certainly got the stats about the 3.5% mortality rate from the media, and that stat implies a 96.5% non-mortality rate. I don't know. As for "this epidemic won't be around forever" - how do you know? If we don't erradicate it all and end up with small pockets of it hidden in dispersed areas, always ready to spring back, we might have to deal with it in the long haul. Panic might not be warranted, but concern definitely is - and we need to be prepared to adjust our behaviour for a long time to come.


I'll admit I'm not that familiar with the Spanish Flu. Wikipedia says it happened in January 1918 – December 1920 and killed 17mil, 50mil, possibly 100mil from the 500mil who were infected.

Wikipedia says it was the first of two influenza outbreaks, the second being Swine flu in 2009 which I do recall. Had 700mil-1.4bil confirmed cases and 150,000–575,000 deaths. Swine flu epidemic lasted for about a year.

Coronavirus has been around since a few months before 2020. This epidemic is just getting started and while I am sad for those who will die, there will probably be hundred-thousands of death as well. But given humanity have had similar epidemics in the past such as Spanish, Swine Flu and other similar outbreaks we do have more expeiance on how to deal with it now even if the cornavirus is doing something different.

But I don't want to sound like "whatever, it'll go away eventually" I understand the seriousness of the current epidemic I just don't want to be scared of it or contribute to the fear of it. I don't want to install fear or dread to those who are concerned over the coronavirus and much rather encourage a bit of hope that it's not all bleak and doom.

>Panic might not be warranted, but concern definitely is - and we need to be prepared to adjust our behaviour for a long time to come.
That I agree with. People are panic-buying toiletries and medicines in fear the coronavirus will creep up on them like a bogeyman.
They should spend their money out of necessity than fear.



The Spanish Flu was really bad. It entered the scene during WW1 so most of the news was suppressed to keep the troop morale from dipping, except Spain wasn't a belligerent in that war so it saw no need to censor and thus that's where the news of it was coming from, and that's why this name. The thing about it was that the raw death rate doesn't tell the whole story - many of those who survived it were maimed for life. Like for example young people ending up needing dentures, because it caused teeth to fall out - or a host of other issues that stuck with them forever. It wasn't something that necessarily killed you personally, but it wasn't something you fully "recovered" from either, just going back to how you were before the disease. This is a worry for me, that covid 19 will also leave the "recovered" in a similarily maimed state - and so far I haven't seen much discussion of that possibility either way, except for a recent report about long term lung damage based on a very small sample of the recovered. Anyway, what have we learned from the Spanish flu? Well, a lot, but also not much. We learned a lot about how such epidemics spread, but as to what to do about it... it seems we pretty much just learned that such a thing can happen and that we need to take it seriously, whatever that happens to entail.


Comparing 19'10s Spanish Flu with 2009 Swine Flu I would say it could be because of the war why the Spanish Flu spread so efficiently. Poor hospital conditions pressed by the war, trenches where diseases and infections can thive and spread etc. However the Spanish Flu infected roughly 500mil in it's two-year run while Swine Flu infected 700mill–1.4bill so yeah, I wonder what's that about.

But the Swine Flu has only killed 150,000–575,000 while the Spanish Flu claimed 17mil, 50mil, possibly 100mil victims.

So while the influenza got about more efficiently in 2009 than it did in 1910, it didn't kill as many people than it did last time. Sure it was by the hundreds-thousands but what people lacked in control they made up for with cure.

As for the permanant harm and physical damage caused by recovering from the virus, even if those people are no longer 100% themselves they can take comfort in surviving the epidemic and staying with their loved ones. I know it be a bittersweet survival and may suffer from adjustments to loss but I'd rather loose my left arm or a leg and live than have to die miserably knowing how sad my family will be.


I don't know what to believe about any of this or who to listen to, but the numbers look good for me surviving even if I do catch it. It may be selfish, but that's always the biggest concern. Aside from that, I never leave the apartment anyway.

Silly thing also, my kid are over for the weekend and my daughter's going into sniffling and sneezing and a bit of coughing.

I can assume it's a regular cold, but with all the restrictions on the sick, I do hope I'm not going to catch it from her.


Since I work in healthcare I'm not really affected by it so far. We'll be onboarding respiratory panels for corona testing but I think that's mostly internal politicking by one of my managers. She has a track record of trying to be important. Doctors like throwing tantrums because my couriers don't have teleporters. Boss wants me to pick up some more duties but the training is tedious and the same applies: it's a pointless show of being seen addressing a problem by the people who don't actually have to follow through.

True, you probably get extra screened to avoid contamination, but I'd assume that whatever is going on has extra effect on you guys for that.

I mean, now is the worst time to come to work when you have a cold.


Oh we're all almost certain to get infected, and we're expecting staffing crises when it really starts spreading, but at this stage all I'm doing is the testing, which for my little hospital is shipping things to a bigger hospital.

We aren't going to close down or work from home or anything else that is happening to normal people.

Oh, no. That is going to be monitored and I'll isolate once I get sick. In the meantime I'm going to limit visits with family.

Sniffling and sneezing aren't usual symptoms of COVID-19.  Although it is possible to be infected simultaneously with a common cold and the COVID-19 virus.

Found a visual metaphor in the fruit section last night...

I wonder what conditions we take for granted which make life in close quarters possible? Issues relating to sanitation are a vital concern where people and things are stored in one place for a long time.

Years ago I used to go off to residential seminars which centered around guitar playing but focused on addressing practice--that is, the way we made our relationship to the instrument "real" for us in our everyday lives. These were self-organized affairs and we cooked our own (communal) meals and maintained the grounds we were staying on. A special place was given to cleaning the bathrooms, private and public, and giving extra care to handles, knobs, and surfaces. The idea was to keep people from getting sick, and, for the most part, it worked. If you get sick, you can't play, so the needs of our creativity had to be balanced with the needs of the house.

For what it's worth if literally any of my coworkers get sick and test positive, I am probably getting quarantined and vice versa. It's not a big store, and while we're doing what we can to up sanitizing, the customers aren't part of that.

At least we got a heads up with everywhere else getting bought out in the panic, we could get ourselves a bit better set up.

The city is pretty quiet now. Most of what I hear is magpies.


Guess I'm no longer working this weekend.

There should be more pandemics.


place is a ghost town, which makes driving much less profitable.  feels like the middle of summer, but with even fewer people going out.  a lot of older riders typically going house to house.  people lining up to strip Wal-Mart's shelves the moment it opens.

I'm in a position where I've got essentially nowhere to go since all social events are cancelled, and I'm not attending college currently anyways. But, even then, it wouldn't matter. Stuff has gotten shut down to where even the spring commencement ceremony won't happen (at least, I guess, not as it usually would).

Yet none of that is as bad as what's happening with my mom and younger sister. They're both under quarantine for being 'at risk' populations medically, and they're basically under house arrest. Purely isolated. It's got to be super frustrating for them.

For me, I'm feeling healthy physically. Mentally, though, I don't know... I'm surviving. Not depressed. Not that happy either. Just am glad to have online connections.


An employee at one of the Wal-Marts went to the hospital and tested positive for corona.  He was told to stay home.  Instead, he went back to work at Wal-Mart.  The only reason anyone found out was that he collapsed while on the job, and the EMTs who arrived put two and two together.  He worked in the deli, and there's no telling how many people came into contact with it through him.  The deli has been closed down.

A woman working at a Shell station said they had a thief today, who brazenly loaded his pants with roughly $50 worth of candy bars and food.  It was someone who had stolen from them before.  They called the police, but the police didn't come.  Despite not coming, they asked her if she had any symptoms of the virus.  Since the store no longer has any way to deal with thieves and are receiving no help from local police, starting tomorrow, they are shutting down the interior of the store completely and only operating through their cashier window to the outside.

A woman who I gave a ride to earlier tonight had a police ankle bracelet on.  She had been let out of jail, essentially on parole, to fend for herself during the pandemic and presumably reduce the strain on the prison system.  The bracelet checks to see whether she's had any alcohol, among other things.  She was specifically told not to use hand sanitizer because it would set off the bracelet due to the alcohol.  I don't think she has to worry about that part, though, because she had stuffed a paper towel under it, and was completely drunk.

Around 2 AM, I drove a ride to a gas station to grab some snacks.  As we pulled up, we were swarmed by a parade of cars on the otherwise completely empty streets.  The cars rolled into the gas station and took over it.  tricked out cars blasting hip-hop music.  people standing up in their sunroofs.  drinking and smoking.  continuing whatever party they had been having just before.  probably 100 vehicles total in the procession.  it was like FAMU homecoming at a random gas station.

The Staples where I work is able to stay open because the legal team convinced the state government that it's a "life essential business". We have to limit customers in the store to 10 at all times, but there was a line out the front because the nearest Staples had an incident where someone vomited all over the floor and they just shut down immediately to call a hazmat team.


the city is a ghost town. i have never seen NYC so empty. not even 9/11 was this bad.

I'm not sure if I have the coronavirus or not. If I do I seem to be fine.

I think it was Feb 27 when went to see Sonic's movie and I felt myself coming down with a cold. It picked up over the weekend but I got over it by the mid-week. That was ages a go.

Physically speaking I feel fine. I don't have any breathing problems, fever or other signs, I feel fine.... except my coughing has still not passed. I've been coughing now and again since feburary.

My throat doesn't hurt. I don't have a loss of appetite, especially with snacking. I don't feel hot or feverish or any other signs to look out for. Just a rather hefty cough and the desire to clear out my throat.

So I feel totally fine... except for a persistant cough.

Should I be concern? I mean if it turns out I do have the coronavirus I'm almost a shut-in anyway so no chance of it getting worse for me.


Did you have any anosmia (loss of sense of smell)?

It could just be allergies or something, and if you were infected in late February more symptoms would've surfaced by now.

Though I'm not a doctor by any means.


Not that I'm aware of. I can still smell dinner cooking and as someone with aspergers I believe I am still overly-sensetive to certain triggers of touch and smell. (when I was a kid whenever mum put suncream on my face it make me wretch due to how it feels.)

I don't have any known allergies. If I did have an allergic reaction to something which is causing my sneezes wouldn't I have eye-watering and other symptoms?

Other than coughing (and the occasional stuffy nose) I feel fine.

Short term I'm fine, long term I'm fucked. I had a small amount of money in the market that I was treating as a sort of long term emergency fund, that has lost almost a third of its value and would thus be really stupid to use now. And it seems like the job market is going to be absolutely flooded with people who lost service economy jobs soon, making it even harder for my unemployed looser ass to get a job. Am I the only one physically safe but still shitting themselves?

I don't post here much but I'm still alive.

I'm in the same boat. I was actually laid off a little before the pandemic and was told that I would most likely get a call in a month if they needed more people. That was a little over a month ago.

i'm okay. although i learned my county has 3 confirmed cases, so that's worrisome. and since i'm still out of work due to this whole thing, i've been keeping an eye on the state of the relief fund bill that has been going back and forth with bated breath

glad you are listening to some good tunes ^^


I'm actually optimistic that government action will be taking place soon. After all, at least, the Federal Reserve has been doing a ton to help people. It's genuinely nice to see things working out as they're designed to do institution-wise, at least kind of... hah!

I'm doing generally well. Things are hectic, but good. It's nice that I've been able to make time to donate plasma lately, it's pretty sweet having an extra $140 a week to play with. I've decided that, since i'm making enough money from work to put some money away and pay bills, that i can afford to have my plasma money be my fun money, and dad says if we do get quarantined he'll wave my rent. So i've bought some new inner sleeves for some of my magic decks, a new deckbox, some more cards, and a cute and comfy d-20 pillow with my blood money. Only shitty thing is trying to get rent from the bank when the lobby is closed and the hours are awkward is a huge pain. Luckily dad is being flexible with it since he knows i have the money and intend to pay him.

And i guess seeing the new info from noelle, there's more cases not too far from me, so that's worrysome.

perhaps, but i guess i just have lost a lot of faith in congress to do much nowadays. but if there is some sort of check or recurring payment, that would do me a whole world of good right now.

I think it's just more crowded overall. The number of cases per population is really low. I'll be ok. First sign of trouble i'll hunker down and take care of myself, and dad can afford to provide for us both by working from home with little trouble. If i did catch it i think i'd be ok.

super wonderful ella enchanted, how did you get so wonderful? <3



Last i checked, we have 1500 or so here, but we dont't conduct mass testing, mostly asking people to stay in as much as possible. Which works for me, as it barely changes my everyday life honestly. Unfortunately, a LOT of people are being asses about it an going on picnics. Our lockdown has been extended to APril 13th, but that's what I expected, really.

On te other hand, supermarkets have mandated distance sticker lines at the  checkout, and the bigger ones have hand sanitizer dispensers at the entrance, so steps are definitely being taken.

I have sort of stopped looking at the numbers though. It did nothing more than depress me.

The NY Governor frequently goes on TV to give the public updates.

Yesterday's estimates showed the number of hospitalizations doubling every 4.7 days.

To which the governor said "that is almost too good to be true."

we had 13 virus deaths today in NYC... in ONE hospital.

A doctor at that hospital is quoted as saying "It's apocalyptic"

Our cases in New York are doubling every three days.

please do not become like us! stay inside, and be safe!!

Our region is assigned 14 test kits per day. My hospital gets 2 of those. The flagship in the big city coordinating the entire area gets 44.

We are running out of viral transport media. We are running out of lab coats. Surgical masks and gowns are heavily rationed.

The current count in the area is stable however it isn't clear if that's because of a testing shortage.


I am unclear, do you interact with a lot of incoming costumers or such, or are you still mostly alone in a workshop aside from coworkers?

Nope. social distancing is it. Its all about flattening the curve and keeping things as close to a managable level as possible.

>Ok, the rest I understand, but what the fuck is that about?

I have no idea. She went to this drive through test thing and had to sign a contract where she had to agree to not take pics or videos under penalty of imprisonment.

She said something about them having military trucks there or something like that.


That's....kinda weird...wait, do they not want the place to get stormed by panicked people maybe? Stealing masks and supplies?


I know, and I don't blame ya, but the best any of us can do is just follow guideliens and otherwise try to go about things as normally as we can. Fearing every step will do no one any good.




I'm cynical enough to think it's about not exacerbating economic panics, but I think it's too late for that.


Patient confidentiality most likely. They probably know people who go there are going to upload a picture of "look at all the people here!!" and accidently provide a list of people for the community to blame if things get out of hand.

I'm mostly resigned to the fact that I'm pretty much guaranteed to get it now, no matter how hard I try to avoid it. My goal is to minimize how much I'd spread it, not avoid infection for myself.

I'm doomed as is! I can minimize the collateral however.

This whole business has really been getting me down, lately. Even though I was able to graduate a month ahead of schedule, I'm finding myself kinda flounder and have a steady level of background anxiety which I had never had before. It's kinda scary!

Confirmed case a dozen blocks from my house a few days ago at the local courthouse which was sanitized.

I blame toilet paper supply problems.

Edit:  my old town just caught 44 new cases overnight as soon as they offered free testing.

Lockdown starts here tonight.


Its not great in my state atm.
NYers are starting to come in and we have the military and police enforcing checkpoints and quarantining anyone from that state by mandate. Which is causing some tiffs with the ACLU.
Police are going into the rich costal communities to check for NYer and impose the quarantine.
So far, we have done well to keep our exponent growth below the curve and at a manageable level, but people are still failing to fallow social distancing guidelines and now over 50% of cases are from communal spread.
So prob in the next week or so infection will outpace management.
Then they will probably impose mandatory lock down, which should have probably already been done.
I myself am doing well. Glad to hear you guys are too.

so uhh... last night i started noticing this kind of pressure in my chest, primarily in the top of my chest. and it hasn't gone away yet

and this got me scared, especially since all the covid sites say that pressure in the chest is something you should immediately seek help on, so i called my healthcare provider people.

they asked me a litany of questions. i don't feel like i have a fever, i don't have a cough, and while i feel pressure in the chest, it hasn't inhibited my breathing surprisingly

so they told me i was "low risk" and to just keep an eye on my symptoms, as they may not even be coronavirus, but could be all sorts of minor things. and they didn't think it was something i should go in for yet.

so i'm just at home, keeping myself isolated, and feeling a bit freaked out nonetheless :((

It could just be anxiety, but just to be safe, do you have a thermometer to check your temperature? You might want to check it a few times throughout the day, just to be safe.

you had a similar thing huh? do you still feel your chest thing?

i should probably do some sort of stretching and stuff. and i got a pot pie to eat right now, so that's gonna be fun

i do have general anxiety, and have a propensity to think i got something more than i actually have. so this is actually a possibility.

i do not have a thermometer, so i might have to get one

minor... but after i ate PROPER food. i don't get the feeling of passing out shile sitting down. and having normal heart rate. but get this middle of this i got pollen attack reaction and ive never had pollen reaction before this.

don forget to go out the balcony to get some fresh air!
i dun know what i got. doctors refused to take tasts on me since i wasn't duying.
so like a swede i say.. ill take the day as it comes.


The problem is that the singular symptoms are QUITE common - so having even one can easily make someone freak out. I spent the better part of a day recetly with a near-dry cough and got worried.

I also had a day with really sore thighs and got worried as I had read that muscle soreness was a sig of a really bad case... and then I remembered that I'd helped my dad move some heavy furniture the day before.

I'm not saying don't be cautious, but do not panic, do not assume the worst. Stay inside as much as possible, get yourself a thermometer to keep an eye on your temperature and don't hesitate to call specialists, no matter how "annoying" you may think you're being.

We want our Star in good health yo.

and according to it, i have no fever. so that's a relief!

it's very possible that this could just be allergies or my anxiety exacerbating a minor thing :PP

yay! proper food is good! and i love it!

i'm so glad you are treating yourself my freind, and it sounds like our symptoms have some similarieties

hey esh!

>hugs and kajis <3

that is true. and it is so much fun when your one singular symptom is described as "You must seek help immediately" which mine was, so that certainly didn't help my case at all.

i hope your cough goes away soon!

muscle soreness is always so much fun when you forget that you work on stuff :PP

i am staying inside, and just for the next few days i'm treating this as coronavirus and am just gonna stay away from people as much as possible. if i feel better, then i can relax that a tiny bit (while maintaining social distancing)

i did call a doctor, and i found a thermometer, and both of them show good signs fortunately T_T

thank you <3 i want you in good health too!

It is most likely just that. It is important to remember that, while the virus can still be serious and we are not 100% safe automaically, you and I are a very low-risk group. We're among those that may well carry it around completely asymptomatically. As long as you're being decently careful I'm sure you'll be fine.

Oh the cough was a few days ago, I'm fine. I just have normal slight spring-coughs and sniffles here and there.

Good idea. If you have supplies to get by for a bit, don't go out. I am sure you'll feel better soon.

A cat in Belgium has tested positive for the coronavirus after catching the potentially deadly bug from an infected owner, officials said Friday.

The sick pet in Liège tested positive after showing classic symptoms of COVID-19 — including difficulty breathing — a week after its owner first fell sick, health officials told a press conference, the Brussels Times reports.

“The cat had diarrhea, kept vomiting and had breathing difficulties. The researchers found the virus in the cat’s feces,” professor Steven Van Gucht said Friday, according to the outlet.

Anything medical in the US is so heavily regulated and ossified, and the payment structures are so fucked, that making any sensible changes is difficult and slow.

Amazon instituted some "hazard pay" measures for their warehouse workers: They raised the base wages by 13% ($15/hour to $17/hour) and started paying double for overtime.


I'm trying very hard to be safe, but...well, my coworker left in the middle of our shift today because she was sick. I'm quite peeved she even came in at all.


Staples is finally telling me to stay home. They aren't closed, but only full-time employees (there are like 5 in my big store) can work now because the store isn't making any money.

For what it's worth, I think Governor Walz is doing all right handling this. No false promises or sugar coating the reality. Things are bad and they're going to get worse, but the damage can be limited if we just buy time with things like the shelter-in-place order. Regular daily updates that are broadcast to keep people informed with how things stand at that time. Bluntly saying the state will open again when health officials tell him it's safe, no sooner. We also have a few companies that are in a primed position to help, 3M and Medtronic. Walz activated the Guard to deliver gear to the hard hit areas. That sort of thing.

Shit's still fucked but maybe we'll weather the storm. As a bonus, the weather is awful! So people might actually stay home like they're supposed to!

That scares me in the other thread.
I'd hope with the way things are going we can already say that the crisis has or is about to hit.
But honestlky, we may still be in the casual tutorial phase.

I already try to hold on to self isolation, leaving the house for:
1. Traffic/visiting my kids who stay with my parents.
Given that my mother has just come home from a month stay in the hospital, trading kids is an absolute necessity

2. Going to the store about twice a week.

Other than that, I stay home.

Yes, we have a natural reserve people use to hike and ride their bikes.


It's genuinely hilarious how this style of music used to be so incredibly 'cool' back when my parents were little, but now it's all regarded as 'uncool' by so many...

>hugs <3

of course my friend!

do you have any games, shows, or movies you are into recently?


Well. Tired.




I saw an anime movie two days ago.

Called: Paprika.

It was good.



I am glad you are well.
A bit tired too.

Just posting a bit.

that movie is like your third eye opening up and transporting you to another dimension!


i need to watch that again! that and Paranoia Agent <3



Ah, it seems we are kind into the same then.


Me too



>Offers hug


Looks like I'm going to be called to help enforce the lockdown where I live.


Ahhhh, I've posted about this multiple times, but I keep looking at cat-related material online, and I want to get a cat when quarantine times have finished so badly now...

They're just so fascinating, aren't they?


How so?







Are you eating well?

Satoshi Kon is brilliant! i love his work so much!

the only one i haven't really sat down and watched was Perfect Blue, but that's mostly just cause i never remember to do it when i have the time. but i guess with the lockdowns, it would be easier to justify watching ^^

oh gosh!

>hugs and kajis <3

please be safe! that must be rather tense!

lol, i've seen this one XDD


military. They're alos turning our vehicle yard into a make shift morgue in case it's necessary. Government land near a hospital. makes sense I suppose.

I think they mostly want bodies to help. Likely we'll be conducting check points on regional borders, assisting logistically or referring non-compliance to police.

Strange times keep getting stranger.



Yes, he was brilliant.

Let me know your thoughts when you watch it, Noelle.

We might talk about our theories on it.


Mhm. You?





Yes. Getting weirder.

Well ...

My niece got the results of her test and she tested a "weak" positive for COVID-19

She's respnded well to outpatient treatment so the doctors are speculating she might be in the recovery stage, with only traces of COVID-19, but she's now definitely a carrier of the virus.

And now I learn that three other family members around her are coming down with symptoms ...



It spreads like gunpowder...

Yea, my sister was showing sympotms, tho she hasn't been tested, and the symptoms are just mild flue, and she seems to have gotten better, but she's healthy overall, so i doubt she'd have gotten hit very hard. Now my aunt and uncle are showing symptoms. I worry about them a lot more, they're in their 60s, so if it is COVID-19, they could be in trouble. I hope they'll be ok...


When i'm not working, i've been streaming anime with one of my friends. My best friend from high school and i still get along really well, but he's fallen off anime, so i haven't been able to watch with him, but i've been streaming with some of our other friends in the discord group, and they've really been enjoying it! It's a blast watching my favorite shows again with friends who've never seen it! We finished up future diary yesterday, and we started darling in the franxx today, and he seems to be pretty into it! I guess we're on a violent pink-haired love interest kick, heheh, maybe we'll round it out with elfen lied after this.

I'm glad that you've been able to find a passion to keep you going through these weird times!

Hmmm... I've never seen 'Elfen Lied' before, so I'm curious what you'll think of it!

My interests have been rather mixed, ranging from music to draw-threads to Telegram chats to other stuff... music though, totally, has been a thankful way to keep myself sane!

You listening to anything nice lately?

It's rather hard for me to have a fair assessment of elfen lied, i think. It opened me up to the world of anime tragedy, before then i'd mostly been watching Saturday morning cartoon types of slapstick recommended to me by my friends. Between that and nostalgia it's very likely I've overlooked some flaws; That being said, i really like it. It's about this girl who is kept imprisoned by the government because she has the power to slaughter hoards of people seemingly with psychic powers, and has done so before, and the show starts off with her managing to escape her high-security prison, but who looses her memory and reverts to child-like state after getting grazed by a shot from an anti-tank rifle right to the head. The story follows her and the people who find and care for her. It's very contrived at times, but it definitely hits some good emotional beats. Shame it doesn't really end properly. It ends without really resolving a lot of things, but hey, if you liked it and want to see what happened, you can always read the manga.


Oh! Right! As for music i've been listening to the soundtrack for some of the shows i've been watching. Future Diary has a banger opening, and franxx has some really pretty music too. I can't even listen to the first few notes of "hitori" without tearing up. I wish that was a joke. It's a really pretty song and god-fucking-dammit does it come at a powerful time in the story. I think i cried for a full day after i saw the episode where it really drops at a powerful reveal that sheds light on what's been going on with one of the characters. Still to this day one of the most powerful and memorable moments in anime to me.

Funny part is it's a bit of a troupe, not a very often used one mind, but enough where you can recognize it here or there, and i don't think it's ever failed to get me. Gets me every damn time.

My partner is pretty worried now. I don't know the full details, but he said that a friend (old co-worker) is concerned about our hospital only having a small number of ventilators.

He's thinking since we have a full wood shop and multiple tools and supplies, we should spend the next few days trying to make a ventilator just to...have some I suppose. I know we probably can't offer them to the hospital to be used, but I think it's more about having something to do and feeling productive.

I'm personally torn right now. I know there is about an 80% my doctor is going to pull me out of work if I call her, because I have asthma and that undiagnosed stuff. I don't know what to do. I don't know if I should call her or not and let her pull me out of work.

You recently finished a new animation, and quite a long one. How was that for you?

aww heavy! i'm sorry you are feeling a bit lonely! this quarantine business is pretty isolating, and i imagine it must be scary in your area, cause i heard that New Orleans area got hit hard

it wasn't really an animation as it was just an art video. It was fun to do the whole soft voice thing, and there was something liberating about just rolling with the punches and not fixing anything. it was all done in one shot too, so i feel kinda proud of that ^^


File: 1586066795379.png (8.99 KB, 225x225, 1:1, lucy13.png) ImgOps Google

It doesn't have to do with that. Actually since my primary means of socialization is the internet I have more access to the people in my life than usual. I'm just in a weird place personally; I'd say I feel "spooked", or want-witted, or toxic. Put in another way: there is something about me which I don't want to look at or accept, but which once I did, would guide me "home". As it is right now I feel like I don't fit in anywhere.

The infection rate is pretty high here. It's a sad situation, because this kind of thing is one of the pressures of living and working together the way we do, which people put faith in. You want people to do well, you know?

My mistake on your video--I haven't watched it yet. Do you plan these out? Do you have something you'd really like to do in this medium, in this moment, that you're working up to?

it must be pretty scary :(( i hope you stay safe and clean at this time! i think the best way most will be well is to stay home

this particular video was just on a whim! it was supposed to be a kind of a "april fools" joke, but more like an  "things have been hard so relax a bit okay" april thing. honestly i decided to do it like an hour before i did it

i've just been hitting the pavement on my project, and it's been going pretty good so far ^^

a little bit yeah! i did a pretty good workout earlier because the weather finally was nice. and my neck and body was fine for most of the day. only in the last hour did it feel a bit stiff

so i believe i've come to the realization that this whole quarantine crap is making me less active, and i didn't realize my body could feel stiff and blah until just recently XPP

okay, i'll respect your boundaries bro, no worries ^^

second question? oh!

i would love to use my skills to screenwrite, and i've especially been thinking about storyboarding, because a lot of studios, even live action film studios, have been relying on storyboarding to make movies. so i think that would be a great translateable career

i mean, i clearly would love to make my youtube channel skyrocket and become an anituber. and i would love to be an animator. however i'm a loooooong way from being proficient in that area, cause my stuff is still rather rough and rudimentary compared to other peers my age or younger.

Well, hmmmmmmmm, for me I've spent pretty much all of Friday and Saturday writing. Writing writing writing. A lot of it isn't particularly that interesting since it's minor edits of what people have done before (including me). Some material is really fascinating, though.

Right now, I'm trying to work on this page about Winston Churchill and looking up a bunch of side information. What are you doing at the moment?

You know I think I learned something about animation from watching one of your videos. It was that scene with the chicken. For the first time it occurred to me: The animator has to consider the shot, the pose, and movement, and the plenum of expression therein.

What would you do if you had to live this way, or similar to this way, on a more permanent basis?

I'd just be less happy, I guess. Would still try to do constructive material. Maybe experiment with learning programming and also developing my sense of drawing.

Drawing is honestly really fun. I'd likely do what I can to reach out to other people online. Do back and forth studies.

Sleep well!


Yay! Turns out I don't have a 14 hour shift today and it was just an error in my scheduling. Today is a normal 8-hour day!


Well, goodish news in Denmark.

We've flattened the curve enough to begin the first steps of a careful, gradual re-opening of certain functions in the country.

Schoolchildren up to 5th grade are going back and some select after-school activities are opening back up after Easter. Maximum capacity of gatherings has been raised to from 5 to 10.

All festivals and major events are still canceled until at least September for now, which is gonna be a hell of a blow to a lot of my friends who were, as always, looking forward to the Copenhell festival in June... which, you know, could also take a massive hit from this if worst comes to worst.

It has been made VERY clear that this is not an unconditional re-opening, however, and everyone still has to follow the regulations, use the hand sanitizer available in stores, obey the distance markers in supermarkets, etc. Let's hope even more people follow suit now.

But it's starting to look like this will be a very boring year.

I don't suppose there's any word on wether or not they'll hold a spot open at the very least for another chance at an interview when things get better?

Until otherwise posted.

There are no held spots.
I have to reapply and pay the application fee again.

I respect them for doing the right thing, and I know that it might be petty of me to be upset but man it hurts.

It is just what happens to me all the time.
I get close to something good and it gets yanked away. Like I didn't even self-sabotage this time.


You're talking to a person who finally, after literal years, had the guts to send even one job application at all, only two days before everything went into lockdown and can't help but twist it into "being punished for being stupid enough to try". Believe me, I get the feeling, along with the conscience issue of realizing how petty it is.

It's nobody's fault, much less ours. That doesn't make it suck less in the moment

Sorry friend.

I'll stop pitty party now.

That's not what I meant or was going for at all.

You have every right to be bummed out at something falling through. So do I. My point was I know the feeling, and it's natural and not something you need to apologize for.

Don't ever let me make you feel like you're not allowed to be upset about something like this happening. Me or anyone.


Aww, that's awful :c

It's incredibly not petty to be upset! I know there's a lot of dark stuff going on in the world, but there's no need to try to size up your loss with anything else. This blows super hard and you legit have every right to feel every bit of your upset and hurt.

Currently, there seems some hope in Europe in that the situation starts to stabilize?

At least, less growth in people getting sick, per day and less people arriving in the hospital. Still a lot of death, really.

There was a mention of the large risk that the illness will probably not strike only once.
Multiple waves/seasonal recurrence.

If we somehow make it past the coming month or 2, I hope that we can be ready to catch the next wave. Cause we might be getting off easy right now.
