Now why doesnt every NEWS NETWORK mention this?


What I see on the news is that everything is shutting down, when travel restrictions are actually old news.
From my Jacuzzi I can observe air traffic at Las Vegas airport.
Just came from about 1 hr sesion. So after NV governor made order to close all non-essential business, and Las Vegas major signed an emergency declaration - I still see commercial airplanes landing about every 90 seconds.
Actually rare evenement today - with calm weather jets have been coming to double runaway from both sides so I had impression that traffic is actually bigger than normal.
Can anyone explain that?

So much misinformation out there...

How long can the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 survive on surfaces?

A recent study found that the COVID-19 coronavirus can survive up to four hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard, and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel. The researchers also found that this virus can hang out as droplets in the air for up to three hours before they fall. But most often they will fall more quickly.

Sunshine kills it,so does heat of 27°C

There is no evidence that sun exposure kills the 2019 coronavirus. UNICEF has debunked a post that claims the organization said sunlight is effective against the virus.

If 27°C (80.6°F) kills the virus, how does it thrive in the human body at 98.6°F?

Bottom line here is simply this:

You handle this how you want to. You can ignore it or be pro-active. Your choice entirely because, in the end, you get it and don't know it right away, you get to infect others including but nit limited to your loved ones and in the end, you too get sick and possible die from it.

Your choice, you 'make your own bed', you sleep in it, possibly the eternal sleep. I think most of us are adults (I think). As an adult only you can decide. So choose.

I've chosen. I'm staying home. limiting my exposure to others as much as possible, practicing healthy sanitation habits and praying (yes praying like I do every night, to the Lord that he spares us from this killer disease.

Just had this conversation with a friend (via-Email). He 'has' to go to work because he 'has to have a paycheck because he 'has to support his family, which is light years removed from gaavanting around the country in an RV, but in maby ways, the same. His comment to me was, I'll do whatever I want to and my comment to him was. A good with me but you make your own bed, you get to sleep in it.

Same applies here and like I told him, you contract it and possibly infect other innocent people because of your attitudde and then get sick (and possibly die) yourself, don't whine, you did it all by yourself. Being the Captain of your ship still bears some responsibilities.

I'm done posting on this thread. You do whatever blows your dress up. I know what blows mine up ans it sure isn't RV'ing this summer. I'll be right here at home with my wife and my dog and the farm animals, doing what I usually do, farming, because I can do it ALONE with no social distancing at all.

When you get sick, before you get so bad that posting becomes not doable, post about how you feel then, but don't whine because you did it all by yourself. After all you are an adult...right?

Nothing against dresses, but I don’t wear one SideCarFlip.

Top of the hour news just said a large increase is expected in 4 days due to the increased testing. I'll be interested to see if that comes to fruition. Market breakers kicked in again as market continues downward trend.
People who vape have more complications?
Hopefully this train wreck will turn around soon.

It would be a big improvement if they could just get some hand sanitizer back on the shelf.

You might have to buy it in a bigger bottle or more smaller ones in a case but I have found distribution companies have plenty of hand sanitizer if they allow walk in sales.

I did manage to get some toilet paper at Fred Meyer. Some Camco RV/Marine, 4 small rolls, 3.99. As I entered the checkout line, people asked where I got it. I suspect that supply is gone now too.
