Over 10k deaths now in the U.S. 

And, holy shit Boris Johnson is in ICU.

Damn. In 2 days we'll probably surpass "just the flu" total of 12k from H1N1.

I'm seeing that's it's a precaution IN CASE he needs a ventilator. Still conscious as of now.

Who goes into a hospital ... with all the other sick people ... during a pandemic ... just in case?

I don't buy into mass conspiracies, but I've gotta think there's more to it than just a precaution.

The video a few months back of Boris Johnson boasting about shaking hands with Covid patients is a prime example of why you don’t mock an enemy, especially one where you don’t know their capabilities.

Anyone have this article floating around, "The Curve is Already Flat"?

So she thinks it’s been here since November and it took 4 months for NYC to overload its hospitals?  That’s not how contagions work.

He was already confirmed positive. Symptoms started getting worse yesterday, on day 10.

If the leader of your country is sick from this....it goes to show how not serious some of these countries are taking it.

Seeing a lot of conspiracy nut jobs going to local hospitals trying to film how empty it is because it’s all just a hoax.

My buddy tried this one on me yesterday.  He started citing all of these statistics about current occupancy rates versus normal occupancy rates; as in "do you know what percentage of beds XYZ hospital currently has in use".  I knew that's where he was going with it.  The most humorous thing is hearing him using hospital statistics like he didn't just hear them on some radio program or read them on some internet site moments before - like he's on top of that kind of information.  

 

It's just a big conspiracy to sell toilet paper.  Also, 5G causes coronavirus.

The “curve is already flat” article is well-written but moronic.

Oh, I've no doubt.  I just don't buy that you go to the ICU as a precaution.

If he's in the ICU, I think he's experiencing more significant symptoms than would be considered precautionary.

A guy I went to HS with is posting this shit on FB. Granted, I lean conservative but this guy's spouting off about "empty hospitals", "it's not as bad as they're saying." I blocked his posts. Same shit, different day.

Ahhh. I thought you were wondering why he went to the hospital as a precaution in general lol. Yeah, I dont think think you get moved unless its relatively serious. Maybe he is moved for less significant issues because he is running a country, but still not for nothing.

Isn’t it basically when the 3g/4G/5G tower went up, a pandemic started?
