    So, we've now established most of you know someoe who has had it and all have recovered with most having no symptoms at all.

    Again, what the fuck are we doing right now closing businesses and schools? Just WTF?

    4 that I can think of. 1 was hospitalized. 2 had really bad flu like symptoms. The other was asymptomatic. Thankfully all recovered and seemingly are doing well.

    My ex-boss. They promptly fired her when they found out she was pregnant and the Covid hit right about the time she told them.

    They fired her because she was pregnant?

    They terminated her employment the day after she told them she was pregnant. They said she was no longer needed because business demand had been greatly reduced due to the Pandemic. I think she will have a tough time winning a lawsuit, although I know she had contemplated it. Hard to prove something like that with the Pandemic being a convenient excuse.

    Seems like there would be a lot of cases there because of the crowds

    Happy she recovered
    Free daycare, preschool, college, healthcare, prescriptions, it's all free people. Redirect police funding, navigate away from oil, the Green New deal, pack the SC 😆

    One of my co-workers and his whole family (16) got it early when they took a trip to MB, SC. My boss and her husband have it now, they are struggling. My wife works for a large paper company and they have had about 20 or so cases in her plant, nothing serious.

    I am ready to get back to the way things were. Got kicked out of a Mexican restaurant last night with my 2 kids because I walked in with out a mask. They let me sit down and nobody waited on me for about 7 minutes and then told me I had to leave because I did not have a mask on. I had my two kids with me and told the guy I would walk out with my kids burp cloth over my mouth and nose and he told that would not work. I laughed like hell. They have 30 tables in the place and only 4 had folks eating, they were all booths and all right up against each other, zero social distancing and none of those folks had mask on (of course they were eating). I guess COVID only affects you when you walk in or out. That place lost a customer. This BS has to end.

    Thank you. Both in their 50ís. One was a lady I worked with that had underlying conditions. The other was my friendís father. He was a marathoner.

    I think I way underestimated the total number of people I know that have had it. Itís got to be well over 50. 3 houses in my subdivision have it, and others were exposed because they were at a party at one of the houses. Itís exploding everywhere here.

    That’s pretty fucked up. Even for a jackass like yourself. Hopefully no one in your life has to experience it and has adverse effects. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. A good friend’s daughter is battling leukemia. She lives in constant fear going in and out of hospitals for treatment.

    one of the guys I know that was on a vent, is a very healthy male age 35. Married with three daughters. He is a physical specimen that played college hoops. He was on the vent for over a month.

    also, a random sampling of people on a gambling forum is what you’re using to determine what needs to be done? Hilarious
