Random Thoughts of the Day

It seems that Mayor DiBlasio and Governor Cuomo are antagonizing each other as the Mayor says that within 48 hours he may impose a shelter in place order amid the coronavirus outbreak.  The Governor opposes that proposed lockdown.  I agree with the Governor as a lockdown will only minimize the spread of the virus and create unhappiness among the population.  Nobody wants to be confined to their homes indefinitely.  Will the police be used to give a summons to people who don't comply?

This coronavirus situation is different from 9/11 or Hurricane Sandy since we can not see the virus.  Most people who have the virus are asymptomatic.  Others may just have mild symptoms.  Many who have died from the virus had pre-existing conditions.  I feel sorry for those who have lost their jobs over this situation.  How much will a $1000 payout from the government help?

We'll take this one day at a time.
