Isnt the virus spread by coughing and sneezing and can only bind to something in a persons lungs? Washing your hands wouldnt really stop that

You are taking in particles when you breathe, some of them will be particles from the peoples hands, butts, balls that are around you. Your hands are the most frequent contact point, if everyone's hands are clean then there will be less spread of all kinds of virus.

The same things that keep you safe from all the other strains of flu that infects millions, and kills thousands of people every year should help protect you from this strain.

Coughing and sneezing spreads the germs where they then land everywhere, you end up touching where it landed you pick up the virus with your hand and the next time you touch your face and you're now infected. Washing your hands for 20 seconds kills the germs hence why they say to wash your hands. It's impossible not to touch your face so the more you can keep your hands clean the safer you are.

then again, it also could have been here for almost 6 weeks now, n just not affecting the general healthy population the same. Takes time to work its way to the sheltered away old folks that're dropping like flies everywhere else?

wonder how long until every single epic product of 1H2020 is pushed into 2H & 2021. Hopefully the market keeps slowly going down. been meaning to put more money in & all my long holds are too expensive for me to re-up onatm .


We are gonna get smashed here in the U.S. but not quite as bad as in Europe. The outbreak there had a good 2 week jump on us in the Americas and we are getting close to the summer sun's UV radiation to begin it's disinfection process. Now if there is no vaccine (don't think there will be) by the beginning of next winter, that's when things are gonna get interesting.

The real body count from Covid-19 is gonna be from the global recession it's causing and broken global supply chains.

Wash your hands -- wasn't that the advice given out in Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2? Didn't seem to help much w/their green flu.

This is just getting out of hand. The world is grinding to a halt. Sports leagues are shutting down.....People would really be freaking out if they did daily flu deaths on the news every day.

The NBA has basically canceled their 2020 season. The amount of money going to be lost by the NBA, players and teams will be mind boggling.

I'm upset events are getting cancelled. I don't get to have fun because old people are dying to the flu. Tough
