I hear that hospitals in Tulsa are looking to latoffs as well because they have been told to cancel all non essential procedures so they are basically vacant and about 1/3 census right now. It is what it is...we have chosen this path to fight the virus and we may find it wasn’t necessary. My hope is that is the case which will mean we won.
If I was a nurse, I would take up NYC on their offer to pay me $10K a week plus room and board for a 21 day stint.

Germany has backed off their claims...https://www.washingtonpost.com/worl...-latest-news/#link-GQ4VHJ7T2ZGQPD3VUWO5W6QZRU

A Berlin official, who accused the U.S. administration of “piracy” after 200,000 masks for the city police went missing, backtracked Saturday and said the masks were ordered from a German firm.

In a statement distributed by the city mayor’s office and senate a day earlier, Andreas Geisel, Berlin’s senator for the interior, was quoted as saying a delivery of FFP2 masks only made it as far as Bangkok before it was “confiscated".

He had said the consignment was ordered from a U.S. firm and “we are currently assuming that this is related to the U.S. government’s ban on mask exports.” Berlin Mayor Michael Muller also weighed in Friday to call President Trump’s alleged actions “inhumane and unacceptable.”

But Geisel wrote on Twitter on Saturday that he had clarified that the order was placed with a German firm and that supply chain issues were being "reviewed".

How would we find that, Fox Butterfield?
You are right, if it seems it was unnecessary that will mean we won. IF it appears that we didn't need the measures, we likely won't be able to prove we didn't need the measusres...no way to win, except to do the measures and hope it appears that we didn't need them... Irony.

article in the Stillwater news press today saying the local hospital is preparing for the most cases at the end of April. In three weeks? We’ve had the shelter in place now for a week or two. It’s getting need to believe anybody knows what they are taking about.

What city will be the first to arrest somebody for mowing their lawn?
I read there were 4 prosecutions in Minnesota. The first was a bar 20 miles from where I live-there was an after hours poker game at the establishment. Dumbasses were parked out front when the local cop drove by.

Edit. I should mention that your comment is an overreaction. If you see people prosecuted it's because they are ignoring what their state is telling them to do. I've seen a lot of confusion over what is considered essential and generally business owners can contact the city or county for guidance. For individuals it's the same. Going on errands during daytime hours isn't an issue. Being out at midnight-you run a risk of being pulled over. It's basically a defacto curfew (which sort of supports your statement). But if you're doing what you are supposed to right now you shouldn't be worried about a citation.

Edit 2. I think I read here that in Italy violating rules if you have it and give it to someone else is essentially considered manslaughter. We aren't there yet so you can complain about what's going on but the punishment could be more severe.

In a burnin' ring of fire.
Not sure what city but I can narrow it down to two states, California or Florida.
I've seen others ask this kind of thing and a lot of memes on Facebook (I know they're just memes) about not being able to go outside, but I haven't heard of anyplace preventing or discouraging people from going outside in their own yards. It's about staying away from other people. Unless you are inviting 4 or 5 elderly neighbors over to ride your lawnmower with you, it shouldn't be an issue.

So, you want to win somehow? You think this is about winning? You don't want to do the measures and then hope it appears that they worked? Why?

I don't think you understood his question.

It's about winning against the virus...AND winning as an American in the economy. The measures to many seem draconian and are in question, I know they don't to some like yourself. Thus the conflict and the irony is that no one will "win" that argument. That's what my post said. I'm sorry that wasn't clear to you, and that you don't seem to understand the conflict of personal freedoms vs possible draconian government forced compliance. Have a nice day.
