This is absolutely the reason. Flattening the infection curve is now the goal. For most people over the next 12-18 months its not a matter of if but when. And the more we can delay the better.

Foot in mouth candidate! Although we're all hoping you're right. So many factors at play.

You sir sound like the most FACT informed. Because you are correct, I heard this morning a Dr. in Toronto was testing.

I believe this is your own opinion and NOT FACT

I work in health care with the elderly and immune compromised, and get daily facts about this.
- it is not an airborne virus, it is DROPLET AND SURFACE virus...they don’t know how long it can last on a surface at this point
- it affects people with compromised immune and respiratory issues
- symptoms are, high fever, dry cough, short of breath/breathing issues
- Covid 19 kills 1 in 100....the flu 1 in 1000

The key prevention......you all know this.....wash your hands and don’t touch your face until you wash your hand, keep your distance 3-6’ from people...ya I know. The virus is killed quite easily on surfaces using a milder cleanser. We use what’s called PC 1000...for Norwalk virus we use PC5000..just an comparison.
I heard China only reported 24 new cases....the curve is going down. I highly suggest to go on you local health site, they will have facts....oh and turn CNN off lol. Ok last I not an expert in this but I feel I know more then the average person so please check your local health web site.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
