      @Jim Battersbee The problem with an all-inclusive statements is they by definition are seldom true. The USA is defined as a geographical region, incapable of expressing human traits. While some American residents may be greedy many more are extremely needy. Animals, including human animals, have a tendency to be influenced by external stimuli as well as genetic factors, few complex organisms/systems are simplistic as they may seem.

      @Studio 51 Obama’s Admin investigation of Russian spying was patriotic. Most voters are smart enough to see through Trump’s devious distractions/plots to smear all political opponents. Russia interfered in the 2016 election helping Trump. Trump’s campaign had 100> contacts with Russian operatives, irrefutable facts. Barr/Trump have worked relentlessly to persecute/smear all who dare investigate Trump’s campaign Russian connection under the fallacy of absolute exec power.

    I agree with the Governor, it’s the horrid work conditions that fueled the increase in infected people. Look for continued increases in prisons, on Naval Ships, in classrooms and call centers. Dumb people crowding into bars to get drunk….it will spread.

    • @Paula Baumann March 2, 2020 From “Mayor de Blasio, Governor Cuomo Hold Media Availability on the First Confirmed Case of Coronavirus in NY State”
      NY Governor Andrew Cuomo:
      “So, I want to make sure I tell the people of NY what I told my daughter – in this situation, the facts defeat fear, because the reality is reassuring. It is deep breath time.
      This – first of all, this is not our first rodeo with this time of situation in NY.
      In 1968, we had the Hong Kong flu.
      In 2009, we had the Swine flu, where we actually closed like 100 schools in NY State.
      Avian flu, Ebola, SARS, MERS, measles, right?
      So, we have gone through this before.
      When you look at the reality here, about *80 % of the people who are infected with the coronavirus self-resolve.*
      They have symptoms, the *symptoms are similar to what you would have with the normal flu,* and for most people, they treat themselves, over 80 %, and the virus resolves that way.
      About 20 % get ill.
      The mortality rate is estimated to be about 1.4 %.
      1.4 %, what does that mean?
      The normal flu mortality rate is about 0.6 %, and the CDC says 1.4, but they’re extrapolating from what we know from countries around the world.
      First, even on the 1.4 %, again that is – *tends to be people who are debilitated, senior-citizens, many of whom have an underlying illness* – that tends to be the people who are vulnerable to this. Good news, children do not appear as vulnerable to this virus. Less vulnerable than to the normal flu.
      So, that is good news, but 1.4 %, that’s extrapolating from China and other countries.
      80 %, it’ll resolve on their own.
      The woman who has now tested positive, she’s at home, she’s not even in a hospital, so the perspective here is important.
      And the facts, once you know the facts, once you know the reality, *it is reassuring, and we should relax,* because that’s what’s dictated by the reality of the situation. I get the emotion, I understand, I understand the anxiety. I’m a native-born NYer, we live with anxiety.
      *But the facts don’t back it up here.*
      Also, we’re extrapolating from what happened in China and other countries – we have the best health care system in the world here. And excuse our arrogance as NYers – I speak for the Mayor also on this one – *we think we have the best health care system on the planet right here in NY.*
      So, when you’re saying, what happened in other countries versus what happened here, *we don’t even think it’s going to be as bad as it was in other countries.*
      *We are fully coordinated, we are fully mobilized.* This is all about mobilization of a public health system – getting the testing done, getting the information out, and then having the health care resources to treat people who are going to need help.
      Again that is going to be primarily senior citizens, people who are debilitated, and *we are going to have a special effort for our nursing homes,* etcetera – congregate facilities where senior citizens are being treated.”

    • Thanks for including call centers. I quit mine on March 22 and i already felt a week too late. I knew i would die there if i stayed longer in that bubbling festering petri dish with sanitation exactly the same as in 2018, nothing ramped up, the oblivious upbeat happy CEO making tons of money in a boomtime sending us a video telling his minimum wage workers (many disabled seniors) how much he loved us and to sacrifice more.
      South Korea had 102 cases in a call center in March. An Arapahoe basin call center had one positive in March. In a Syracuse N.Y. call center (internet company…charter?) employees families were in an uproar about the company culture that refused to acknowledge or adapt.
      Since then, it’s all very hush hush and i can’t find out how many at my Colorado call center have gotten sick or died. I emailed countless agencies and got one canned response a month later. Googling gets almost nothing. Time to research again.

    • Elaine Daprano | May 15, 2020 at 3:01 AM | Reply

      Disease doesn’t infect produce until it comes in contact with bacteria in shipping, usually in refer trucks sitting for hours. Truck lines really should Lysol the inside of those trucks. Also fruit flies spread fungus on their feet and wings. Open air handling of produce isn’t the danger area. Packing plants are sometimes clean, sometimes not so much. And Trump’s FDA has cut number of inspectors way down…letting the COMPANIES do their OWN, which of course, THEY WON’T. All this is why the UK doesn’t want to accept our trade deal. NOBODY wants our crap.

      You have to take into account how much of the food industry is mechanized, so fewer people working close together.
