  1. As usual, the tabloid headline you post fails to reveal the full story that one can only find out by actually reading the full article: But, Professor Jason Oke and Professor Carl Heneghan of The Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine said to view the new statistics with caution. They noted reporting figures tend to be lower over the weekend in comparison with weekdays due to a backlog in records with smaller members of staff. And hospital death figures are also often lower than those finally counted by the Office of National Statistics. It comes as NHS England has announced 108 new deaths of people who tested positive for Covid-19, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 26,722.
  2. The CDC says they haven't : https://www.miamiherald.com/news/business/tourism-cruises/article242945396.html A spokesperson for the CDC said the agency has not consulted with any cruise lines yet about resuming operations. “We don’t have enough information at this time to say when it will be safe for passenger travel to resume,” said spokesperson Scott Pauley in an email Wednesday. “Our current focus is helping crew members safely return home to their families and ensuring cruise lines are providing a safe environment for crew members to work and to disembark. We will continue to evaluate and update our recommendations as the situation evolves.”
  3. No I have a very good answer, but i refuse to waste it on you.
  4. I'm not at all surprised that you can't figure that out.
  5. Are you totally oblivious to the fact that NCL has stated that they are still working with the CDC to develop protocols? That's a rhetorical question, by the way.
  6. As usual you're off base. It's been expected and and predicted by experts for months that the true mortality rate would be on the order of what's reported in this article. If you actually bothered to read the article you'd know that.
  7. But don't disagree with Corliss, because you will be placed on the dreaded ignore list if you do.
  8. Of course if you bothered to read past the headline you'd find out that this was expected by many and that Dr. Fauci has been predicting this since late March...over two months ago. Reading a bit further reveals the following...also something that has been stated for months: "But even a virus with a fatality rate less than 1% presents a formidable threat, Rivers says. "That is many times more deadly than seasonal influenza," she says."
  9. As pcakes 122 said there's little new here. All of you who are doing the "Happy Happy Joy Joy" dance are overlooking the fact that this isn't the final and comprehensive list of changes that may have to be made to obtain CDC approval to resume US itineraries. In the Cruise Critic article on NCL's new procedures you find the following : "The line notes it will continue to work with all authorities to develop additional procedures in line with CDC and local health agencies around the world."
  10. It's an error on the website. The ship will not be in that area of the world at that time and if try to book it you'll see that you can't. Note: I know others have already said pretty much the same thing, but since one of my posts was quoted by BonnieJeanne I feel justified in responding.
  11. In reality this statement is sufficient to demonstrate that this doctor is making anecdotal unproven claims. If the virus clinically no longer exists in Italy, how is it that there are hundreds of new cases being reported there every day? Per https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/italy/ in the last 7 days, May 25 - May 31, a total of 3133 new cases were reported, and while the number of new cases has certainly been declining significantly to say that "the virus clinically no longer exists in Italy" flies in the face of the facts.
  12. I already told you that price can vary by location. I didn't say anything about add ons. Taxes and fees aren't optional...everyone pays them. To know the true cost of the cabin you have to include them.
  13. Yes, prices can vary by location...but that really isn't an explanation for why you say you're seeing different prices. For the same category cabin the price for an individual booking should be identical from any legitimate source . Some travel agencies advertise prices that exclude port taxes to make the price appear lower. What you have to do is go through the full booking process...which you can do without actually booking... to see what the bottom line price is including all taxes and fees.
  14. It really doesn't matter. Taxi or car service fare will be a bit cheaper from LGA, but you have to contend with the major construction project going on at LGA, so I might spend the extra $10 or $15 and fly into JFK just to avoid the construction.
  15. Of course there's no guarantee . investing all the money in the world might not result in a vaccine, but you're missing the point. Eventually no money was being spent on a SARS vaccine, so research halted. Not doing any research is not the same as doing research but failing. You can't develop a vaccine if you're not trying to...and that's what eventually happened with SARS.
