  1. It was yesterday or the day before. It came from CruiseLawNews, so....
  2. Those saying Mexico is hot right now, and I'm crazy for wanting to cruise. I think you missed the entire point of my post. If it hadn't been deleted you could all see that I was one of the few saying Covid was a big deal before it really started and folks started complaining about me and I received multiple warnings from the board. I'm not saying let's all jump on a cruise ship and find ways around the protections and etc. The point of the post is, with what happened on the most recent cruise, the CDC is going to regulate the cruise industry out of business. Meaning impose such str
  3. This is a speculative post, I know some don't like those, no problem, just move on. Facts being assumed that aren't in evidence. There will be no cruises in 2020 out of the US, after the latest Covid outbreak on a cruise ship the CDC is going to tighten restrictions even further. A vaccine will be ready by the end of this year. Distribution of the vaccine will take a large part of 2021, into the fall, maybe the whole year I've read in a few places. CDC will mandate a vaccine before being allowed to cruise. When do the cruise lines do an end around? Stop cruising out of
  4. So your advice is what? Make money magically appear? I notice you didn't offer any. So, Ptroxx. Let's hear your sage wisdom, or STFU. Have you ever even been unemployed before? The advice I gave I have followed myself, and it is advice I've received from the experts. ONLY deal with and pay people that can take something away from you, credit card companies can't.
  5. You will be amazed what you and your family can live without, and the hopefully long term habits you develop. Call the people that hold your mortgage and any vehicle loans. They will work with you, they don't want your house or your car back. Call the utility companies, they will work with you too, a lot of them may have funds that will pay your bill for you. Call the people that you have credit cards with, tell them you won't be paying them a dime, ever. Keep internet, but turn off all cable or satellite (or if you have had the same provider for a while switch to eithe
  6. This is exactly correct. This is also the same reason easing stay at home orders too early won't work. The first week the tables in the restaurant will be 6 feet apart and the staff will be sanitizing and wearing gloves, but after that people will get lazy, the table will get closer, etc.
  7. Cutting us loose now is insane and I hope his advisers talk him out of it. It isn't even close to being bad yet. The theory behind it is going to be open the restaurants and etc, just enforce social distancing all tables need to be 6' apart, same with seats in theaters, etc. Employees must wear gloves, stuff disinfected. It will work for about a week. Then folks will start getting lazy and that 6' will turn into 4', gloves won't be changed, no disinfecting today because they were out but will start back up tomorrow when they get some in. Then it is going to come roaring
  8. No chance, even if the drugs they are looking at now work you would be looking at Sept/Oct If the drugs don't pan out and the curve gets flattened to the point it needs to be this could drag into next year.
  9. Excellent post Another thing to keep in mind, this is still months away from actual realistic use. The FDA has been burned in the past acting too quickly, their whole purpose is to not let something like this thru too quickly with no after the fact information. Studies start in NY on Tuesday, compassionate use approval's will be scattered around elsewhere. So, ideally. NY starts Tuesday, by this coming weekend everyone it is used on is better. FDA will monitor this group for 30 - 60 days, then nation wide approval of use.
  10. The pure human sacrifice has brought me to tears...🤑
  11. Thank God it got to dock. Hope they get home soon.
  12. I understand all that, however: A novel coronavirus is a new coronavirus that has not been previously identified. The virus causing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is not the same as the coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold. A diagnosis with coronavirus 229E, NL63, OC43, or HKU1 is not the same as a COVID-19 diagnosis. Patients with COVID-19 will be evaluated and cared for differently than patients with common coronavirus diagnosis. Straight from the CDC website https://www.cdc.gov/coronavi
  13. No conspiracy. Someone asked, I looked at it. My statements were factual. My last statement was the address was legit and it was hosted on their site. I have no idea why it isn't listed with their other press releases, so I offered a guess.
  14. The Swine flu was a flu. Since we have been dealing with the flu forever some people have a natural immunity to some strains. In example if the 2008 flu was an H4N1 flu then someone who was infected or got a shot in 2008 has the possibility to be immune because their body recognizes the virus (or at least part of it) and uses existing antibodies to try and kill it while still developing new H1N1 antibodies. So they get infected but they don't get sick. Because of this the transmission rate was 24% The flu also only transmits after you are sick. So you look ill and feel ill so you s
  15. Being over sometime in the July/August time frame. Technically that is true, but it isn't going to look that way. At that time 100's of millions are still going to be sick, however multiple 100's of millions will have recovered making herd immunity work. People's and government's reaction to this is going to be interesting. Imagine Trump getting on TV and saying open all the stuff again and let's get this economy moving with the number's listed above. While he is correct and then it will be much safer than it is now when people are only seeing 20 people sick in their st
