    The CDC just released statistics that reveal 40% of those being hospitalized are between the ages of 24-50. Those kids ignoring the risks are putting themselves and everyone else at HUGE risk. We seem to forget that 25 million Americans have asthma, and almost as many have CPOD, emphysema, etc... They aren't all over 60 years old.

    While the USDA, FDA, EPA, etc are not perfect, at least we have some safety mechanisms in place. China doesn't have much of anything at all. Nor do many other countries. Yeah, a slaughterhouse or hog farm in the US is not a pleasant place to visit at all. Try visiting one in Mexico. Or China. You'll see things can get a whole lot worse. I'd much rather visit a cattle processing facility out in the Texas Panhandle than I would a "wet market" in China.

    Those big Spring Break parties will be a great opportunity to spread coronavirus. College students from all over the country are visiting those spots. They can catch the bug there and bring it home to Mom, Dad and everyone else they know.

    Other people likely to be silent spreaders are the folks who insist this situation is over-blown and refuse to take the suggested precautions and just go about things business as usual. That's exactly what happened over in Italy. They didn't heed the warnings. Now their health care system is totally overwhelmed. Italy has more medical beds for emergency use per capita than the United States.

    You need to understand something about Italy's culture to understand how a virus could spread so quickly. First, their population is extremely old, with something like almost a third are elderly. Second, they tend to live together in large extended families all in one home, and third they practice "La Passeggiata". https://www.tripsavvy.com/what-is-la-passeggiata-1547544

    I am sure toad knows who is doing the Trump thing which it did not do it for me. Probably just so he has something to bad mouth and spew his hatred about.

    It doesn't much matter now that everybody is seeing for themselves what a great job Trump is doing compared to his predecessors.

    No thanks. Impossible to even have a conversation with someone so blinded by their political agenda (that goes for you and certain people on the other side too) that they cannot even get a few posts into any sign related thread before spewing their political opinions and frequently hatred with who they disagree; for example 'racists, bigots and xenophobes'. I'll stick to lending help where I can to other sign folks, doing what I can to play my small part in solving the crisis ahead of us, and occasionally calling out those who want to focus on, as in your case pushing an agenda that has nothing helpful to add and is totally off topic.. Do you even remember what the topic was in this thread? You really think you are helping Depps74 and other people going through what he is?

    Pointing out the obvious is hardly bad mouthing anybody. I have no idea who is doing it, if it is even happening, but I can assure everyone that it certainly wouldn't be done from outside the website itself.

    According to most polls being taken about the handling of the crisis, you are MOST definitely in a clear MINORITY that thinks he is handling it well.

    So it did it in my quote that you posted. I just though it only did it when the TDS toad posted.

    I'm fairly new to this site and not an American. I don't care who is the idiot you got elected or soon will; we have our own elected idiots up here to worry about. Signs101 website should be about people in the signage and print industry and it should not be mischievously promoting any candidate from any politcal party in any way shape or form. I do not wish to be, even remotely, associated with any NAME 2020 campaign; it's irritating as well as concerning that such a thing would happen. If Signs101 wants to promote something, then they should have a publicity banner about it on the front page.

    I'm sorry, but I hafta come directly to the point. You, mr toad, are a troublemaker through & through. All this sh!t you're constantly bringing up is terrible. Now is not the time for ANY politics. Come back in 6 months or a year and try it then. Right now, we hafta look towards the future and fixing these broken times. Not your misguided fixations on the past. Not now, mr toad.

    I can't speak for Gino, but my guess he was rubbing in the
    My wife of 43 years has heart issues and likes to say 'I'm thankful because I know there are others who have problems like mine look small'. You are to be commended for your dedication to your daughter; this virus is a double dose of concern for you and we'll pray you and family get through this on both fronts.

    So we have a Frog from Quebec and a Toad from California. Looks like a gourmet dinner menu in Wuhan, China tonight.

    Leave it to Johnny Best and GAC05 to end the day on with their peculiar (but appreciated) brand of humor.
