    Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but this is a very interesting development. I think she is going to be all in on 2024 whether Trump or Biden wins this year. She is officially playing the long game.

    "People have been encouraged to order takeout in an effort to aid local businesses. It’s a good thing for the economy, we’re told.

    But, is it safe?

    Dr. Henry Fraimow, an infectious disease specialist at Cooper University Health Care, says it is.

    “We know that the risk of contracting coronavirus through food is incredibly low,” Fraimow said in a release. “According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is no evidence of food or food packaging being associated with transmission of COVID-19.”

    Fraimow said the risk of contracting anything from the packaging is low."

    Maybe he wad criticizing the dude for asking such a softball question. Does it get any better for a president than "people are scared and I'm giving you an opportunity to inspire them"?

    Anyhow, I don't know if it's significant, but that was one thing I noticed and haven't seen discussed elsewhere.
    I've seen anecdotal comments making the contrary point, that initially it seems that men were more susceptible ...
    It certainly feels that way. But I'm distrustful of that feeling and am curious about evidence.

    Yep..

    More men are dying than women.

    No where is this trend more pronounced than in Italy. Men make up nearly 60% of people with confirmed cases of the virus and more than 70% of those who have died from covid-19, according to the country's main public health research agency.

    On the other end of the spectrum is South Korea, where about 61% of confirmed infections have been in women. Though far fewer patients have died, the majority of fatalities - 54% -- were again in men.

    Here's the "GameStop" version of corporate greed vs employee health:

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/20/tech/...ess/index.html

    The company argues it is "essential" because it offers mice and keyboards that could help people work from home.
    "That's absolutely ridiculous. If someone's trying to work from home, they don't want the $85 Razer keyboard we have or the $60 Razer mouse. Some cheap $20 Microsoft something is going to get them by just fine," said Dustin Carson, 31, a game adviser at a GameStop in Athens, Georgia. "They can get that at Walmart. They can get that at any of these other stores that also have groceries and are arguably much more essential to being open right now."

    Mortality rate appears to be 2X as high for men as women.

    As China has stanched its coronavirus outbreak to around 85,000 cases, with just a few new cases trickling in this week, we're getting reports that every person in NJ will get it and the total cases in the US will be in the tens of millions. Yet we're not asking them for help?

    Supreme arrogance or outright stupidity?
