    No, man.
    He's more interested in looking pretty for the cameras, I think, but I hope it does actually turn out they take swift action now. I suspect they might still drag their feet out of fear of people finding out how botched the government response has been thus far. With nothing coming from the national government, the governor of Tokyo came out and requested that people not go out on the weekend.

    Well said, I must say I never really noticed you as a poster here much before this tragic event but you are definitely someone I find myself aligned with. I wish you and your family the best health and economic recovery.

    I doubt that very many tickets will actually be written, I would like to imagine that for most people it would just be a matter of "hey guys you shouldn't be out here" type thing. But who knows, there are a lot of fuckin idiots out there.

    We went for a drive around Toronto yesterday, my wife hasn't been out except to walk around the nieghbourhood so she wanted to see what it's like out there. We didn't really see too many "covidiots" out there, the most egregious thing we saw was probably kids playing basketball. It's crazy driving down Yonge st and seeing almost all of the businesses closed. But there are enough people walking on the streets (and plenty of cars) to keep it from looking totally surreal or dystopian. Take a closer look at the people walking however and you'll notice that it's either people by themselves or couples, maybe a family with kids. You don't see groups of friends walking around together. So many people wearing masks, in fact it's almost impossible to see an Asian on the street without one, and every one else is starting to catch up. Today is supposed to be a nice day though and I have a feeling that some people will try to push their luck. We're planning on going for a nice long walk today but we'll stay away from parks.

    The only tickets I foresee being written are against businesses violating closure orders. For the public it will be education first.

    Thank you my friend. I really didn't post much for the last several years. I quietly read from the sidelines and didn't bother interjecting because I didn't believe I had anything to offer. Mainly because I really dislike partisan nonsense.

    With this event, I felt that I could at least be somewhat productive in trying to get people to look at it and take it seriously.

    I wish you and your family all the best as well.

    I hate when China is used as a metric because they are full of shit. A grim number regardless. Praying for Spain.

    I don't get it. Are they implying we should give blank checks to every scientist doing anything related to Coronavirus? That's silly. If you think you can make a contribution, write it up and submit it. That's not a waste of time at all. The grant process is one of the only bits of oversight there is in academic research. These professors aren't project managers or businessmen. They often times have meandering interests, half-baked ideas, and grossly misuse funds. Someone has to force them to come up with coherent projects and stick to budget.

    Bit of a bombshell today: Our legal system is notoriously lenient to say the least, but today Danish government has proposed harder sentences for any 'corona-related crime' - a double up of punishment to be exact. It is expected to pass, and come into effect from Tuesday next week!

    Not quite Punjabi Justice, but a big step in the right direction, imo.

    I've learned more about what things are like in other countries on these threads than from any official journalism. Thanks, everybody.

    Those videos are hilarious, keep em up

    I don't give a frick about Indian civil liberties, I don't even know if they have them

    USA (best country) has a constitution though, and if they did that here I'd be triggered and probably be interested in defending my God given liberties using 2nd amendment

    The problem is countries aren't testing properly in the West. We're not even bothering to test people unless they need to be hospitalized due to shortage of test kits. While China's published numbers are likely underestimates, they sadly might be the most accurate out of all because of their aggressive testing and widespread checks.

    What's your cut off number of elderly you are willing to sacrifice in the name of money? Is it a million? 10 million? At what point are you willing to quarantine?
