  2. “Wear a mask when interacting with someone who has coronavirus” that could soon be a large portion of the population. Anyone could have it so why not wear a mask just in case? If it keeps healthcare workers safe wouldnt it keep me safe from the guy who came to work sick?

    • @Big Steelers Fan 123 i would rather be p sychopath than a FO OL on the BS that the goverment telling us about mask will not help. Science not emotions!!!

    • Leave the N95’s to the gov. get yourself a respirator or panoramic gas mask with a particle filter rated P95 or P100 that has an airtight seal. N95’s do filter the virus but you need one specially curated for your face shape in order to provide a tight seal which blocks of the virus completely, healthcare workers have N95 specific to their face shape. If you buy one in a Home Depot, Lowe’s, or on the web chances are there are going to be ways for the side of the mask which compromises the seal because everyone’s face shape if different. As I said earlier get a respirator or panoramic gas mask with a particle filter rated P95 or P100 with an airtight seal, there will completely block the virus from compromising the mask and will filter out the particles in which the virus travels on. The filter technically doesn’t expire, but since it only captures the particles in which the virus travels on (saliva and mucus particles) the filter is “contaminated” until the virus dies (around 9 days) but you wont get infected since the virus cant get past the filter. You can although get infected through your eyes so I would recommend using eye protection if your using only a half mask, if you go with a full face mask then you should be fine.

      narutaa Bump that up to 70% alcohol.

    • @lmao Idk if everyone wear a simple mask (surgical) it lessen the probability of the spread of to other people by doing so it lessen the chances it get to your eyes, nose and mouth. The nurse can keep their PPE and it also lessen the burden to the medical staff since there will be no patient surge. If surgical mask is not available use a homemade mask. I’m not afraid of getting the virus, I afraid indirectly murdering the elderly and the immunocompromise.

  3. Got my income tax……
    Going on a cruise….lol

  4. Actively sue any coworkers who do not self quarantine after international travel.

      Hud Nortè not going to happen. the flu is worse and no one is getting sued for coming to work with it. don’t panic man.

    • Pierre Poisson It is no different than if someone with HIV were to have unprotected sex with you.

    • Unstoppable Goddess | March 9, 2020 at 4:26 PM | Reply

      Hud Nortè don’t buy into the hype
      It’s just a regular illness that you’d get over just like any cold

    • Yeah but employers wont allow a 14 day self isolation sick day without firing the employee! So be realistic!Specially with low wage workers

    • Eddy M – Then I would actively sue their employer as well.

  5. Seems relatively spot on, except for the part where they talk about the symptoms differences in that case their symptoms seem so similar they may as well be the same as any other sickness, Since most sicknesses are pretty much larger or smaller packages of each other with different names to be honest.

  6. Ok nobody is talking about how they dipped a chips into netulla’s chocolate?

  7. I think I just gave it to myself.

  8. Who dips ruffles in chocolate

    Me: boarding and airplane in level 4 bio suit.
    Stewardess.: Are you okay.
    Me: yeah I brought my own air. 🤔

    • 2:05 i was walking around the streets today, and a faster airflow passed around me, with someone in front of me, if he is sick, and sneezes, and that air spreads the virus to my nose in a distance of 3 or 5 meters, will be good recommendation to wear a mask when there is a grand speed air flow in the environment?

  13. So everything means you have it. Achoo!

  14. “Entertain yourself with books, cards, and boardgames.” Ok either that phrase is antiquated or you’re telling me to expect a loss of power.

    • They’re going by basic disaster standards. Loosen the tin foil lol

      “ANSWERS from a news organization when the entire global medical top experts don’t have real concrete answers” about sums up this crap. Let me guess they said don’t bother with masks cause they don’t work (except they want masks).
