    Our banks no longer are required to have reserves. Why tho? Are they expecting a run? Isn't that the reason for the deposit reserve anyway? It's pretty alarming IMO. Admittedly, I don't know a whole lot about the banking system.

    Yeah I've never asked her but I assume you are supposed to change after each patient. We have all been to the dentist......well maybe not all of us......but you know how much spray and scatter there is when you are getting them cleaned or drilled on. There will be a lot of salvia and other body fluids on those mask after each patient. I can verify latter, but I'm thinking a new one for each patient

    23 pages in and no mentions of the fact there were multiple direct flights from China (Wohan especially) to Italy from December until the out break started. Want to know why Italy is in bad shape. higher percentage of direct contact with already infected people coming from China. Now look at US. Most deaths have been patients with underlying health issues. It's very sad that this occurred but at the same time panicking only makes things worse. More people have died of the flue in the US than have died of this.

    Please be careful and cautious and careful but lets not act like it's the end of the world

    I don't think the virus is more contagious if it's coming from a Chinese person. That's what you're saying.

    Please if your going to throw these stats let's talk about average age and what were underlying health issues. Not being as ass but let's talk in facts. Should said person have contracted the flue or pneumonia what would have been the survival rate

    Not downplaying this just being realistic

    WTF.... no I'm saying that Italy outbreak happened due to the direct flights from China. Those on board Chinese or Italian were carrying the virus. That's why it spread so quickly

    It's spreading here at the exact same rate as Italy. Theirs just happened earlier.

    I don't discount your concern. But we are not Italy and panic does no one good.

    Actually- by what you just said, you know everything about fractional reserve banking. You da man.

    But this is a sports site.

    Nissan production is shutting down for 2 weeks. Employees will be paid 32 hrs pay each week. Some with enough vacay/pto can use and get paid for the extra 8 to get it to the usual paycheck.

    We have a much sicker population than Italy. I'm not saying we will mirror Italy, but we have a very sick population with multiple chronic conditions. We have a ton of people walking around with diabetes in their 30s and 40s. Just something to think about.

    The questionnaires at places like the dentist are borderline worthless. 80% of people with it won't know they are exposed, have symptoms (including elevated temperature). Dentist offices need to close or only be doing necessary visits. Unfortunately, a lot of offices and elective surgery centers are still scheduling patients because they don't want to lose money, but its coming whether they like it or not.

    As a govt 1st responder we had a conference call today this is expected to blow up in ten to fourteen days. The govt is expecting to put up thousands of medical tents across the country for overflow containment hospitals. What infuriates me is I have to put my life on the line because we have so many 17ing imbeciles in this country out partying for spring break. We are about to witness something that will never be forgotten. Hope I'm wrong but from what I heard today I seriously doubt it.

    Yep. I think we missed our window. We are just going to be riding this out at this point.

    I'm fine, just pointing out facts. It probably does come off as panic to someone who's in denial.

    Thank you for the work you do! People don't appreciate first responders like they should in this country. I think that, and a lot of other things, are about to change forever.
