The only reason why 9/11 was important it because it was used to justify large swaths of governmental policy. The actual incident caused less damage and death than most natural disasters
natayvpfo23h
I mean it was also different in that no one expected to die by being struck by an airplane on the hundredth floor of a skyscraper
jpopsyfcg23h
that was...a first
upbzxlput23h
the anti-mask culture in so many countries was maybe the most painful slow motion train wreck I've ever seen in my entire life
znvauyaosxh22h
Here in Canada, at least in Montreal, people arenโ€™t used to wear mask. Iโ€™ve seen some people on the street removing them by touching them with their whole hands (so potentially contaminating their hands and their face), keeping them in their hands, removing / moving them around unproperly etcโ€ฆ Itโ€™s not that good either..
vsqrl22h
The big thing is that everyday masks arenโ€™t to protect the wearer, theyโ€™re to protect everyone else from the wearer. If everyone wears them, then the droplets donโ€™t get out. Containimating yourself from touching the mask is not really the big concern because everyone wearing masks keeps their germs to themselves.
qjtk22h
Is there any way to sterilize a 3M 9001 mask? I've got 4 handy, 1 of which was used. I placed the latter in a ziplock until I can figure out whether I can keep and sterilize it. I wear these for grocery store runs where 2m distance rule is out the window..
iyfjvbxqvbk22h
Well, if you contaminate your hands, thatโ€™s a problem no?
whhfuamiuww22h
Youโ€™ll spread the germs aroundโ€ฆ
bzzxywtqxal22h
And if you were not sick, you touching your face is not good either..
dielwgxxm21h
the point is that overall wearing ANYTHING is still better than wearing nothing
znyyfyp21h
It's not a problem --> It's a flu --> masks don't do anything, don't pay attention to pictures of people wearing masks in asia --> We'll get herd immunity really quickly just let it happen --> oh fuck people are dying fast - but keep going to work so the economy is okay --> okay stay at home --> masks are probably a good idea --> put a scarf on your face
dxlf21h
With or without a mask, people are still touching their faces subconsciously. An active effort is required to keep your hands out of your face and off your mask, but if you're conscious about it the entire time, it's totally possible.
nmufayq20h
One key I found to not touching your face is to get insect bites all over your legs. You'll be so busy scratching your legs you won't touch your face. If you want I can bottle up some poison oak and you can rub it on the backs of your legs to try it out
peethatsmulfuti20h
This sounds stupid but I actually cook enough meals with habaneros to eventually learn to stop touching my face
mlhfrqikcf20h
Stay home, if you have to go out, wash your hands or take a proper shower as soon as you get back, touch your face as much as you like in your house ๐Ÿ˜„
pwjzwwkntx20h
At same time have to be costious about touching it when you're outside (I'm like hyper aware of it , but I just went out 1 time in the last 3 weeks).
aqcvttyk19h
If youโ€™re sick the virus is probably oozing out of all pores
txzelzofhp19h
Level 2 Pooh is still video conferencing approved โœ…
igxfkvtoonpvbna17h
always coming back in time and getting on our nerves. Geez
lmaxbndaaxn17h
Hopefully not, otherwise masks wouldnโ€™t help.. I mean, if you know youโ€™re sick, donโ€™t go in a supermarket.

Anyways, Iโ€™m not against mask, Iโ€™m just saying itโ€™s not the ultimate solution and here the culture will need to adapt for it to be really helpful (like not touching your face and not thinking it prevents the person who wears a mask to get it)
psifbsqwkt17h
The WHO just removed the statement on how it worked with Taiwan. Here the saved version archive.is/vRwiw
ypgrfcxphoxeuds16h
Why is WHO getting involved in politics?

TIL Dr. Fauci is 79 years old

China cooperates?
ugvylagkbwsxurm16h
But in all seriousness, I assumed that was the case. Just a shame.
aestzcos16h
why did it have to be clear bean curd soup ๐Ÿ˜‚
qndnizzs12h
Whenever I see people out doing even mildly risky things I think โ€œyou really donโ€™t want to have to go to a hospital right now. Maybe just stay at home surrounded by pillows for a bit?โ€
fdrcfivwebzors12h
raxqsglk11h
Most UN organizations spend a lot of time just trying to get countries to cooperate for a larger purpose. Theyโ€™re largely indifferent to individual countryโ€™s ambitions. Acting as coordinator often puts them in the middle of tricky situations but territorial disputes are definitely outside WHOโ€™s interests

This is beyond hilarious rolling_on_the_floor_laughingrolling_on_the_floor_laughing
dwaidxmytw9h
yhyymmnyg not only are foreigners being pelted with rocks for being "dirty corona ridden coronas" (???) but so are medical staff carrying out testing ๐Ÿ˜ฑ There was a big riot in the north where DOCTORS were on the street performing screenings and managed to flag at least 1 person, and then the rocks started to hit them. It was like 50 people rushing at them, hurling debris, trying to get them to leave. One officer is in critical condition after trying to save some doctors. It's really scary.
xiuhffyvah9h
China does not give a shit about anything it seems. Wow.

If I don't have an oven can I lightly fry with olive oil? (warning This is a cooking joke, not to be taken seriously at all, do not fry your face masks)
ordvubpitp9h
This stresses me out, but honestly this feels like taking a bite out of the soup/beef as a healthy coping mechanism for alleviating some of that stress and taking mental "control" of the situation.
pngmzmynhv9h
Kind of like "you can't hurt me if I eat you! Muahahah!"
xsrwpfwftf8h
LOL PRECISร“
jklglrnzr8h
yeah sure but it doesn't appear likely that humans can get the illness from pets
uodmllfi8h
I'd expect that the rental market for nice Airbnb's is insanely cheap right now...
imcoiqfqg8h
nah still way overpriced compared to the local rental market which is where I'm looking
eupivwvkz8h
a tiny studio apartment (which I don't want) that would go for at least $6-700 on AirBnB is actually worth maybe $300 a month
gbnpowhg8h
What's your budget?
pgithsfcr8h
$1000ish tops
vtbuxzyl6h
This guy seems to have recovered in just a week? www.thenational.ae/uae/health/coronavirus-recovered-emirati-student-recalls-battle-with-virus-1.1002959 Whatโ€™s the average time it takes to recover?
gwgzqatbp6h
I don't know but Prince Charles also seems to have recovered in a week
nxneqpdk6h
From what I've heard, from symptom onset to recovery can be as short as 4 days, but more severe illness tends to take longer. Average time between symptom onset and death is something like 19 days, IIRC.
jqxccvfs6h
Thatโ€™s interesting (and also scary). The interactive map is cool (scroll half-way down) www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/12/02/climate/air-pollution-compare-ar-ul.html
eahdpicchytgwzaw5h
Explains some things, but industrialized Asian nations must have some fairly high air pollution levels in urban areas.
anyeszzd5h
It will be interesting to look at the data in a year. There are developing regions with low industrialization but bad air because of dust (high 2.5ppm).
gsluscwr4h
Cool tracker for the different COVID19 vaccines being developed vac-lshtm.shinyapps.io/ncov_vaccine_landscape/
marvsgqd4h
I didn't realize there were so fucking many vaccine candidates under development.
aipidqpvdyerfqm4h
I didn't know how many universities were involved
ttpvzkoaihgnbvy4h
Makes me happy to see this. All we need is one.
jmekrqkuvz3h
I don't know what it is about this listing.... But something about it definitely makes me want to book here ๐Ÿค”
yhzqhrpoon3h
โš ๏ธ 2020 disclaimer This is a joke
lgezpstiro3h
I think it's pretty epic that someone would come in to disinfect DAILY
rjjhwjikyi3h
Wow. Super host material right there.
pubjwdglr3h
wow airbnb prices in the us be crazy
sipzsciy3h
Which direction? That looks really cheap to me
ruyjqpjihdzlvfe3h
I mean, that price is ridiculous for _Detroit_
tmcxjmst3h
Or just about right since thereโ€™s just one bath
sizvpxaochpc3h
oh i misread that as west village in nyc
ksupdhrxzxwr3h
not west village in detroit
fzcooynnydny3h

nwfagvicnspqzumq Detroit is completely different and gentrified now.
vwtbuzmhleqvyrbw3h
All the hipsters moved in because they wanted authenticity.
dysgdddyyruqvcv3h
Lollll
krttbrrjdhacfizk3h
Not even joking, it's amazing. Probably not right now but ya, it's very different.
kxfqtpcbbvxoyro3h
Yeah I knew a bunch of people there a few years ago but the neighborhoods were kind of split. Meaning, one neighborhood was cool and up and coming but you had to go through crack neighborhoods to go anywhere else. They are like little islands
gsnoxjzxubmvgak3h
Plus like 10 years ago you could buy houses for like $5 but you had to get them up to code and live there for 5 years.
hqkdtdtukmrdeff3h
May still be like that idk
ovicyutfzcaw3h
i wandered around last time i was in michigan and the west village actually is quite nice
vsiqcnwurscn3h
excellent pie shops
yzhulskhpdzi3h
personally i wouldnโ€™t pay that much for rent however
ohiasxvfw3h
I've heard about some parts of Detroit being nice and hip and gentrified now but I didn't know it warranted prices that high
ifrtncgdv3h
I know by US standards that is not particularly high especially on Airbnb but still ๐Ÿ˜›
ngaxviyoy3h
but yeah 2 bedrooms OK maybe reasonable
ydvrxdlym3h
I'd just go to Cape Town and get a one-bedroom with a great view instead ๐Ÿ˜‚
qcwyahw3h
is rent that much cheaper in cape town?
jrbwhgvbdbqntge2h
Yeah definitely not worth that price re Detroit Airbnb
qxgyyaolgv2h
I mean..... _some neighbourhoods are amazing_ ๐Ÿ˜…
pituxdmyz2h
dfiwpkli yeah it's pretty cheap; not SE Asia levels of cheap but far cheaper than the US
lqunmngawd2h
I was looking for listings in neighbouring Windsor ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ but that one got caught on the map filter
thfwsueluysoyunl2h
My veggie salesguy told me that a local lab has the test for those who can pay cash for it. May be just a rumor, though.

At any rate, if I don't get very sick and I have a say about it, I'll probably just wait for the antibody test. I'm already loath to take resources from the locals.
iyzswepogoapznzw2h
I am curious about whether it's the antibody test, though I hear on good authority that Thailand has one.
ymocnhxua1h
we have tests here for like $30 supposedly but I'm not sure what the false negative/positive rate is on that thing plus it's not like I can do anything with it
fqwigimus1h
I'd do it in a heartbeat if that gave me more freedom but for now that is not the case
