The cases in CH or anywhere for that matter is because they were TESTED. They were all there for WEEKS. You test and you get it. Simple math. I'm not saying there is nothing to worry, it's just not that it happened yesterday, it's in the works for weeks. I'm sure some are even healed. I consider EVERYBODY a corona victim until proven otherwise.

Yup. Was called hysterical, a fear monger and more because I exoressed shock that no guidelines were made for Purim.
Unfortunately, I am still called like that.

Today I just couldn't hold myself any longer, and started discarding almost anything that is likely touched by more than one person at 770's coffee station (after imploring several times with people that run the place to shut it down).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

People still don't get it. I was just told that at the wedding which I attended yesterday there was a guy who tested positive today.

What the hell is wrong with people?  This guy was not feeling well and went Motzei Shabbos to get tested. Why go to a wedding and kis and hug others? (yes, I watched him doing that)

 >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(
Were they not told to self-quarantine until they got the results? Should have been.

While I am being urged to stay home as much as possible de Blasio still wants me to move my car tomorrow for ASP so he can fill up his fat pockets at a time of emergency. :o :o :o

And he wanted to be POTUS....

In all likelihood, they were. A local doctor was kicking supposed quarantined people out of weddings last week.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-italy/italys-coronavirus-toll-surges-as-worries-grow-over-hospitals-idUSKBN2120XN

The head of the civil protection authority, Angelo Borelli, said that Lombardy had been able to transfer 40 patients to other regions and said he was so far unaware of any cases of patients dying because of a lack of intensive care facilities.
But the health systems in Lombardy and in other regions such as Emilia Romagna and Veneto at the epicenter of the Italian outbreak have been pushed to their limits.



“The numbers have continued to grow. We’re close to the moment where we will have no more intensive care beds,” Lombardy governor Attilio Fontana told SkyTG24 television.

According to this, Italy's scary numbers can get much worse. Crazy.

Help out where you can.
I personally have 15 employees out of work. The remaining including me are taking large paycuts. I've spent the last several hours setting up an emergency pesach relief effort with the help and kindness of an anonymous donor.
But this will only get worse. It's pretty scary what I'm seeing by our clients as well.

Dude. Last week there wasn't a single case in Crown Heights. Now it's אין בית אשר אין שם.
is it that bad?
Hope not. Does the fact that many people come and go from overseas have anything to do with it?
