    I think it will be similar to the flu yearly.

    The original sin is Trump’s months long denial and his dismantling of public health and response infrastructure.

    That wasn’t all, but it led to other fatal mistakes

    Like Andrew Yang said, ing $1.5 trillion could have been a subsistence level $1000 a month ubi for the entire nation for 4.5 months to help offset the needs to quarantine and the enormous economic consequences this pandemic will cause.

    4.5 month * [$1*10^3/(person*month)] * (327.2 * 10^6 person) = $1472.4 * 10^9 = $1.472 * 10^12 = $1.47 trillion
    If UBI isn't in the conversation, it soon will be.

    Criticism is fair, but we are all taking pretty drastic actions now. One of the travelers who came in before the travel ban infected the Seattle area.
    A friend who was in Milan flew from Rome to Paris to L.A a couple of days ago--ZERO checks at the airport...didn't even asked where she'd been.

    Um you completely took what I said out of context. You’re an idiot anyway so no reason to respond, but I’ll have to educate you. Unlike this virus, we have readily testing for the flu, vaccines, and anti-virals to treat it. We have none of the above for this virus. That’s a big reason why the mortality rate is higher. My point was this virus will be around yearly, but in different strains like the flu and different cold viruses. Go back to your parents basement copying and pasting data from random websites and go your mother too.

    were officially shut down nigs. my biz running at barebones levels. no school. most ppl teleworking

    This will help soften the blow tbqh.

    I heard Italy and Spain are in mostly because they ignored recommendations and still went out to restaurants, etc. and you know restaurants/cafes/bars there are packed as 24/7

    feel sad for the restaurant business but it is what it is

    Data caps a thing of the past?

    ISPs, leery of repeating Verizon’s memorable gaffe of cutting off service during an emergency, are proposing a variety of user-friendly changes to their policies. Comcast is boosting the bandwidth of its low-income Internet Essentials customers to levels that actually qualify as broadband under FCC rules. AT&T is suspending data caps for all its customers until further notice. Verizon has added $500 million to its 5G rollout plans. Wait, how does that help? Unclear, but the company “stands ready” for increases in traffic. (Disclosure: Verizon Media owns TechCrunch, but this does not affect our editorial coverage.)

    Elsewhere in the world ISPs are taking similar actions, either voluntarily or at the request of the state. In India, for instance, ACT Fibernet has bumped everyone up to 300 Mbps for no cost.

    There are two simple truths at play here.

    The first is that any company that sends its subscriber a $150 overage fee because they had to work from home for a month and ran over their data cap is going to be radioactive. The optics on that are so bad that my guess is most companies are quietly setting forgiveness policies in place to prevent it from happening — though of course it probably will anyway.

    The second is that these caps are completely unnecessary, existing only as a way to squeeze more money from subscribers. Data caps just don’t matter any more. As I pointed out during the whole zero-rating debacle, the very fact that the limits can be lifted at will or certain high-traffic categories (such as a broadband company’s own streaming TV channels) can be exempted fundamentally beggars the concept of these caps.

    Think about it: If the internet provider can even temporarily lift the data caps, then there is definitively enough capacity for the network to be used without those caps. If there’s enough capacity, then why did the caps exist in the first place?

    Answer: Because they make money.

    As with other nonsensical and aggravating fees and practices, ISPs get away with this because they amount to regional monopolies or duopolies and are all running the same basic set of grifts for extra cash on top of your subscription fee

    I think this crisis will chance a lot of things permanently. Remote voting or mail in ballots will be made a lot easier by the Republican party this fall, because it will be THEIR older cons uents that will be effected.

    Yeah, people don't get it yet.

    By the time people see the reasons for staying the home it'll be too late.
