  1. Nice try, George, but I would wager that at least a kilowatt amp would be required and I'm not so sure that would do the trick.

    Perhaps that was what he meant to say or should have said, but that is not what he did say. Most Americans listening to him would not have been aware of that distinction and would falsely believe that a successful treatment has been found. Put your MAGA hat back in the closet.

    Talking about spreading misinformation, get your facts straight. He DID say that it was "approved" (at 1:27): Moreover, Dr. Antony Fauci has said that it has not been approved, nor has it undergone controlled testing - although tests are now underway. Whether it shows "great promise" has yet to be determined. Hyperbole is no substitute for truth. BTW, what I said was that no one should be taking these anti-malaria drugs on their own to combat COVID-19.

    After Trump's "good feeling" about chloroquine and his misinformation that it had been approved for coronavirus, a couple in the US self-medicated with the drug. She got very sick and he died. Until controlled tests prove both efficacy and safety, no one should be taking these anti-malaria drugs on their own to combat COVID-19.

    Keeping hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol with you when soap and water is unavailable to wash hands is obviously recommended and highly desirable. The problem is that it is virtually impossible to find it for sale anywhere.

    @rando My apologies. I stand humbly corrected. I just came across this article which describes studies that support what you posted. Reusable cloth supermarket tote bags should not be used. The information I had read referred to different materials generally and did not apply to tote bags. Using tote bags instead of plastic could help spread the coronavirus

    Relax! There was nothing personal or "you" in the equation. I was simply seeking more information. Your post disagreed with what I had posted. I included the source of my information and the reason for it. I was simply asking for the source of yours and an explanation of why that should be so. That might be enlightening for many apart from me. As I am sure you know, there is a lot of misinformation about the coronavirus being spread.

    Corona Virus

    This is contrary to the advice of experts who state that the most common means of transmission is breathing air containing droplets resulting from a person sneezing or coughing. Nevertheless, the danger of becoming infected by touching contaminated surfaces and then touching your nose, mouth or eyes must still be taken seriously. Regarding masks, the general recommendation has long been that those who are not infected should not wear masks. Today, however, this is essential because of the acute shortage of masks, which demands that they be reserved for only health care workers on the front lines or those infected. The CEO of 3M. one of the major suppliers, has stated that none of their masks should be sold to the public because of the critical needs of doctors and nurses treating the sick. The risk of becoming infected from the mail is considered to be very low, but extreme caution would suggest that it would not be unreasonable to wash ones hands after handling the mail. Personally, I wear gloves when I collect mine.
  10. Did watering cause the soundstage to "grow"?

    Relax, mellow out and not worry to be sure. But never to relax our vigilance. 🙂

    Hopefully, it should not be necessary to remind everyone that the only way to achieve the desired flattening curve essential for our health care systems to be able to cope with the virus is for all of us to co-operate and follow the directions of our health and governmental authorities, including and especially the practice of social distancing at all possible times.
