Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

Obviously if the study is being questioned, this would be a useless thought, but... would an iron-rich diet provide a level of immunity?

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

309 cases, 9 deaths in AZ. And we're not the epicenter of the whole thing.

A grocery store worker on the west side of Mesa tested positive for COVID.

They are saying that cases probably won't peak until sometime in April, and hospitalizations (read: deaths) won't until May.

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

I have been in a weird situation here. I've been off of work since the 6th (since that was the last day before Spring Break). I somehow contracted the (regular) flu back then, and am pretty much just now fully recovered - though allergies have kicked my butt as of late. The earliest projected date r...

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

We have our first death by COVID-19 in Arizona.

EDIT: that's the first since the first case was reported by an ASU student in late February. We've got 104 confirmed cases in the meantime.

Well, I just got an email from my church, and they are suspending our Sunday morning meetings until further notice, as per the government's recommendation to not hold gatherings of 250 people or more.
Same here, but not per government recommendation. They decided to go online instead.

March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

The day that things basically turned upside down - at least in the US.

All three major pro sports have suspended their seasons. The NCAA has canceled their tournaments (hockey, basketball, other winter sports).

DISNEYLAND is closed until April, fercryinoutloud.

Discuss.

Re: Being There 2020-03-02

Two things: first, our school system here in Mesa has a "therapy dog" employed at one of the high schools as a "comfort animal". They work along with a school counselor to help in what I'd have to think is a similar way to Dietzel's actions here. Second - that is an interesting POV of the main atriu...

I suspect the "smallification" may have been what gave him both permanent Library access - and the reason why the Fae girls are fawning over him.

Didn't you used to live in Minnesota or Michigan, before that? Surely, you've seen real winters before, no? Yes. Closest I have come to that in the last few years was when it hailed like crazy in late November in north Mesa. https://www.clickondetroit.com/resizer/wB6CI67zGL0O-bqjqDVCjeZeR8Q=/1600x9...
