CV-19: Survival

Out of 190,664 cases worldwide, 7,519 people died and 80,648 people recovered.

I think a lot of people are afraid that they themselves will die from CV-19, though most of them are healthy and should get through it just fine. But for other people, their biggest fear is they might pass it on to someone who won’t be able to survive it.

There are people I know who, if they caught CV-19 there’s a high chance that they won’t survive.

But I agree that the media and officials are putting undue emphasis on the number of deaths and causing a lot of unnecessary panic. Why aren’t they saying more about the number of people who recovered? It might settle people down a bit. But I’ve seen very little about people recovering from CV-19.

At the same time, though, I think something has be done to protect the people who are high risk. But the measures they’re putting in place, closing everything down and so on, is that going to make a difference?

Right now everything in Michigan is closed down for a couple weeks and they want us to stay home during this time. But in a couple weeks, is the situation going to be any better? What if it’s worse? Are they going to keep extending the length of time that they expect people to avoid in person contact with each other?

I’m Changing My Tone

We’re gonna be okay. CV-19 might be as terrible as they say, but we… are gonna be… okay. The hoarders are gonna stop, because most of them probably bombed out their credit cards buying all that shit anyway. Next, they’ll be tryin’ to get themselves out of debt by sellin’ it for more than it’s worth. But we ain’t gonna buy none. I’ll tell you why.

The stores are restockin’. Toilet paper and everything else will be plentiful. Even if the hoarders remortgage their homes and attempt to buy up everything all over again, they’ll find that the stores are limiting how much they can purchase, so the rest of us won’t have to go without the things we need.

A lot of people are gonna get CV-19, and it might be a demon’s bastard, but we’ll get through it, with hopefully not as many losses as have been predicted. However bad it is, we… will get… through it.

We’re gonna be okay.

No Riots at Kroger in Davison

Yesterday I was told by a close family member that there was hardly anything on the shelves at Kroger in Davison. But they must be restocking quickly.

I just went there with my dad. There’s lot of food products. but yes, many shelves are empty. In the fresh fruit and vegetables area, there were a lot of empty shelves. A lot of the lunch meat was gone. The cold shelves, where the beef, pork and chicken is, were largely empty. All the jars of Red Hots were gone, the summer sausage too.

There was no bread. No eggs. Most of the bottled water was gone. We didn’t go down the toilet paper aisle or the hygiene aisle, so I don’t know what they looked like. Apparently, the hoarders have not touched the beer aisle yet. There was plenty of pop and plenty of chips. Plenty of wine.

My dad heard over the speakers while we were there that they just had an order of meat delivered and it was in the back. So, looks like they’re doing what they can to keep from running out.

There were a lot of people, but not as many as I had expected. I didn’t see any craziness. Everyone seemed to be doing their normal shopping.

We Ought to Shut Up about CV-19 and Address a Bigger Problem

We’re going to starve. I’m seeing many pictures of empty stores. Not just the toilet paper is gone. Everything is gone. I’m hearing about people who went grocery shopping for food, so they can, you know, live, and there was no food to be found.

When I said I wasn’t terribly worried about CV-19, I was stupid. I didn’t see the bigger picture. CV-19 is bad. Very bad. In fact, looking at the results now, I’d say it’s about the worse thing that ever happened in modern America.

But it’s not the virus that’s scary. It’s those dumb fucking selfish panicky moronic assholes who are raiding the stores and sweeping up every fucking thing so the rest of us can’t have it. And we’re going to starve.

When the stores have nothing to sell, these dumb fucking morons are going to start robbing other people for those supplies. If Governor Whitmer was smart, she’d cancel the baiting ban and allow hunting-year-round to reduce the number of people who are going to starve.

I’m a little hungry, but I’m on the fence about whether I should eat anything right now, because I feel like I need to make my food last longer.

CV-19: ‘Tis the End of the World?

I know a lot is happening, but I’m still not any more worried about the virus than I was at the start. I know it’s bad and I know it’s spreading. The results we’re seeing were expected. So, the virus hit some famous people, one who happens to be an NBA player and now NBA is suspended. Probably other professional sports will follow. School sports are already shut down, a lot of people are being told to work from home, etc.

But the virus is not as scary as the people who are panicking.

1,200 people out 300 million is a very small number. But many more people are going to get this virus. There is no vaccine for it, no cure, and there is still so much about it that is not known. Plus, there are no hygiene products to be found, so how are we going to wash our hands?

I stand by what I said before. Most people who get CV-19 will get through it. I could be wrong, though. I’m often wrong. So, who knows?
