  1. From your avatar I can practically hear your post in Abe's voice.
  2. Early on the news stories were saying the Chinese were having so much trouble BECAUSE they were heavy smokers. It's an interesting anomaly, but I don't think I'm ready to pick up some cigars just yet. Best of luck to you and your mom Lobo, keep her safe.
  3. Left that one out, along with the "It will have killed me by then " option!
  4. Let's set the parameters as, football will be played. Normal season as scheduled. You have to wear a mask, take it off and you get tossed. Do you go?
  5. You bring back a memory. My 4th grade teacher was Scooter Monzingo's mom. I think he showed up one day for our class as well. One of the guys in my class was being raised an Aggie and would even go on to play for them. But since this was '70-'71 and Texas was on top of the world, even he thought it was pretty cool.
  6. We're screwed! Get used to living with "Murder Hornets" in your yard.
  7. We're expecting losses from Obstetrics & Gynecology?
  8. It's not a matter of desire, it's not logistically possible for us to do the same things as a nation the size of Texas with 83 million people. Or a nation of 50 million crammed into even less space. We might be able to pull it off in areas with high population densities, but the travel restrictions would have to be pretty draconian by our standards.
  9. I think worst case in NYC would have been 3 to 4 times as bad. As you note in your second paragraph, testing is unreliable and uneven at this point. This is a fast moving target and it's physically impossible to test every American every 3 days for a month. That would tell us where we are. One random study makes for a data point, but basing anything off that is a bit of a leap. The next 3 to 6 weeks will tell us what we need to know.
  10. The testing and treatment will improve drastically as we learn more, a cure/vaccine is likely 18 months +/- away. A factor that COULD blunt a second wave would be the natural resistance of those who have already been infected. If the estimates that the infection rate is 40 to 55 times higher turn out to be correct, and that most are asymptomatic, it would also change the focus of what we're doing and how we're doing it.
  11. I also posted this in the "2020 season" thread, but felt it was also germane to this topic. We expect to announce the university’s plans for the fall semester by the end of June. This timing will enable faculty to prepare their classes and curriculums so that they can deliver the extraordinary educational experiences UT is known for. It will also provide time for our dedicated staff members to reopen the facilities, integrate new learning technologies and prepare to implement new health-conscious practices and policies. In late June, we will have more information about the state of the COVID-19 crisis, and a strategy to help students plan for the fall semester will be in place.

As I said in a previous post, deciding in April is a touch premature.
  13. Seems like that works in 3/4 of the episodes.
