NO. China held people at gunpoint to blunt the exponential curve. And they seemed to do just that. Look at the bright side. If this event is postponed no one will have to wear their poofy jackets in the summer.
Keep it in perspective. It’s not the end of the world. Blunting the curve is important. That is, if you would like a ventilator.
"...the number of deaths in Italy are well on the way to surpassing that in China. Does that surprise you?"
Interest, not necessarily surprise. Chinese have been doing high-dose steroids on every ARDS while it is unclear what Italians do. That may, or may not, be a significant difference in mortality statistics.
In many cases it is Best Buy and Barnes & Noble.
The two countries that are more or less out of control currently are Italy and Iran. This just in,

Right now there is a division size force (between 10 and 25 thosand men) send to Europe from Usa, for a military exercise.
In the same time, millions of people in Europe are advised to stay at home, because of fear of spreading virus
I guess all soldiers. after the exercise, will need to return home soon as well....
I really do not think ANYBODY who has actually ever lived in Europe would wish they now lived there after living in the USA, no matter what.
Remember one very important fact though when out and parking .
Always reverse into your parking space, that way you are ready to roll straight forward and out ( and over!) when the zombie apocalypse hits!
Hey, look on the bright side. We could be living in Europe. 😬
Give it a week or two and you’ll dearly wish you were living in Europe. By then USA will be Italy++.
>>>>>Sounds like wishful thinking, Mr. Potato Head.
I have a hard time telling if you are truly trying to be serious or just winding us up?
No offense meant but as somebody who has lived in multiple continents I know EXACTLY where I want to be now, tomorrow and the rest of my time on this planet.
Of course my opinions only, you are most welcome to yours
Thank you and have a blessed day.
Strange that there are 3 million American Ex-Pats that want to stay there
till the day they death do them part..
I was in Germany in the Army for 6 years . MANY guys took their discharge there and are still there .When I was in Berlin many Brits doing their National Service Service stayed there as well . Working class soldiers could not believe how much better German workers had it compared to English workers !
Herr uberwaltz just set a new most stupid post ever record .
Did they get your meds wrong today?
Or do you think it is clever just to take small parts of sentences to give a totally different meaning to what was said?
You have a different view and that's wonderful for you, just to then go off and start insulting others because you differ in your opinions is frankly pathetic.
That is also fine but what is stopping them then if they dislike it here in the USA so much?
I know many people here in the USA that moved from Europe and not ONE of them have any desire to return.
Sure there are some things we all miss, there always will be but overall?
again my opinions only people.
Got it sir!
But makes me think that as you just about say in not so many words that it is not bad here, at least not bad enough to want them to leave right away.
However I do think we have gotten WAY off topic from what my OP was so I am done with this type of discussion as it is not really the place for it.
