Java - Stay Safe.
I flew back to NY from Del Mar (San Diego) when this whole thing started getting serious to look after my parents. Unfortunately, I've been absent from the board lately as my father has tested positive and my mother is being quarantined as she has symptoms but they're mild. I have to take care of the family and I can tell you first hand, If you get infected depending on your health status, this is no joke. My father is 62, runs 3 miles a day and eats extremely healthy with no underlying health issues and has been in bed for 2 1/2 weeks. His fever has been normal and his cough has been getting better, but still hasn't gone completely away.
FYI, my sister works for MSK in Manhattan and she has expressed the same concerns. I eat my words back in the day when I under played this whole thing, but now having first hand knowledge it has changed my views.
Everyone on here, be smart and safe.
I was over at Costco yesterday and it felt like the apocalypse. Still amazed at how many people are not adhering to the social distancing request. Way too many people whistling past the graveyard, with a "this won't happen to me" attitude.
I think we hit an apex around 5/1. Dr's Fauci and Birx seem to provide the most honest, level headed, data driven information.
Be well all!
