Default The Stay Well Thread

I hope everyone is well and continues to stay well. It's a difficult fact to face but a large number of Mac fans are...mature.
Keep fit, keep healthy, keep busy. Good luck.

Default Take Care

Take care everyone. Its a scary time but we each need to do our part. Its an uncertain time as well. I work in a Drs office and all our hours have been cut down. If and when there is a lock down I will probably be like many have to go on unemployment. I am trying to take this one day at a time-not to sound cliche but what other way can you look at it. Please take it seriously. Wash your hands , keep at a safe distance. The sad thing about all of this is when we need others the most we have to keep at a distance. I guess we will learn a lot from this time. It seems like a nightmare really- a living one. God willing we will be stronger than ever. At least I am trying to believe this in the face of uncertainty. Do take care and lets encourage each other in the best way we can. Stay safe!

Thanks ledges but Iím not afraid of no little virus that was probably created to tank the economy or at least the fear and panic from the media is. Most the people I know think that the media has an agenda and thatís where all the panic comes from. Hopefully the China virus backfires on China and the media. God bless!

This pandemic should never be called a Chinese virus. It could have originated anywhere. It just happened to be in China. It's not the fault of a Nation.

I wish all of you the best of health. For you, your family, your friend's and the whole world.

Itís the Chinese virus just like the Spanish flu is the Spanish flu, the German measles are the German measles, the West Nile virus is the West Nile virus, Japanese Encephalitis is Japanese Encephalitis, the Guinea worm is the Guinea worm. Donít let China distract and make Americans out to be the bad guys. They lied about this virus for a long time. Now they want to play victim. I donít think anyone really doubts where this virus came from and who lied about it. Donít let them use you.

Spanish Flu probably didn't originate in Spain and German Measles probably didn't originate in Germany. There are hundreds of thousands of viruses and 99% are not named after places.
I don't see anyone making Americans out to be the bad guys.

China deliberately created a virus that was initially unleashed on its own population knowing it could potentially kill millions of people before spreading around the World, causing global depression and potentially changing humanity forever???? Yes- sounds plausible

Look after yourselves, family, neighbours and communities.
