I hope so too. This virus has repeatedly defied expectations, so it's probably best to be modest about our ability to predict what will happen next.

Most major cities here in the U.S. have been seeing large-scale protests over the past few days following the slaying of George Floyd at the hands of the police. Mask usage has quite high, but it is unclear just how much that helps when in a large crowd for a prolonged period of time, especially with cloth masks. So if we see an increase in cases here within a few weeks, it may be difficult to say whether the increase is caused by the protests, or by those cities reopening more generally.

Conversely if we don't see any increase within three weeks or so, then it would seem to imply that either the masks were very effective or that the risk of outdoor crowds was for some other reason much lower than we believed. Either way it will be hard to draw precise conclusions.

Or we need to test tear gas as a potential vaccine.

To be fair, Hong Kong does have a pretty low infection rate considering its proximity to the batsoup cave. You may very well be onto something.

I'd say we should study the possibility, but these days we'd probably end up with a study run by the company that manufactures the tear gas, using mustard gas on the control group.

Update from Los Angeles Area:

Looks like my wife is now allowed to return to work (she's a stylist). Our preschool has reopened but we're going to wait till July to see how they work things out. I imagine the will allow my co-workers and I to return to the office eventually.

What's different? My wife doesn't want to return to work. She's enjoyed the time home in this little "fantasy" world that we've been in for the past few months. We've actually gotten to live as a family instead of passing each other by at nights and only having family time on Sundays (the only day we have off together). Sooooo she may consider changing careers again. I too realized that maybe there's something better out there for me. I LOVE the company I work for but the job I do (Account Management) is meh. Why waste anymore time?

My thoughts of the day as I sit at my work laptop trying to avoid working on a Friday.

Makes one long for a society similar to the one in Manna by Marshall Brain. The possibilities are interesting: https://www.marshallbrain.com/manna1.htm

I'm back at work on Monday, working from home for the foreseeable future, although I'll be able to go into the office if I need anything. Working from home is going to be a pain in the arse, and I've got rather used to being paid to do nothing, but it's nice not to have to worry about job security anymore.

Gotta save gems when one finds them.


On the old Corona front, a CDC survey of Americans found that 39% were fucking stupid:

quote:
Thirty-nine percent reported intentionally engaging in at least one high-risk practice not recommended by CDC for prevention of SARS-CoV-2 transmission (2), including application of bleach to food items (e.g., fruits and vegetables) (19%); use of household cleaning and disinfectant products on hands or skin (18%); misting the body with a cleaning or disinfectant spray (10%); inhalation of vapors from household cleaners or disinfectants (6%); and drinking or gargling diluted bleach solutions, soapy water, and other cleaning and disinfectant solutions (4% each).

Daycares got the green light to reopen this Friday. We aren't sending our daughter back for another month, so we can observe and assess what happens between now and then. We fear the second wave and don't want to be too hasty, so may postpone even longer.

It's getting tough for me now though, between work and being home with our daughter on off days. I'm on the brink of exhaustion.

In other news, pay stubs go out today, so I'll see if I finally receive my pandemic pay or not. Huzzah!
