I did read an encouraging thing last night that some scientists started with the sars vaccine and refined it and actually tested it on 2 patients that had covid and were impressed with the results, they think that if it could be administered as soon as someone catches it they stand a better chance of complete recovery

UK health minister gets it.....Boris Johnson said maybe everyone should get Corona Virus so we can take it on the chin and get it over and done with. I dont think he was imagining his own health minister to get it

As I read the other day....I am a raver from 1990's I am not going to get knocked out by a virus named after a light beer.

They are shutting the metro here tonight at 10pm local time for the weekend. Unknown if it will actually reopen Sunday morning.
Work has instituted a travel ban and an annual leave ban (most people take a 1 month leave and go back home)
I've spent the last 2 days setting up video conferencing facilities!
