    Tbf Magic Johnson's name has the word magic in it, he's obviously using magic to stay alive at this point. That, or witchcraft.

    There seem to be some promising treatments. The Chinese have praised a certain Japanese flu drug. Supposedly it needs to go through a clinical study before it's approved as COVID-19 drug elsewhere. The study is supposed to finish in May, if everything goes according to plan. Also, certain drugs for AIDS seem to have an effect. Both have similar limitations, though: if the treatment is started soon enough, it seems to be quite effective, with patients getting back to health much sooner than those who haven't received the drugs (for that flu medication, I think they said that people are healthy and test negative after an average of just 6 days), but if the illness has already progressed, they seem to have little to no effect.

    Yes you are right. I heard about the Japanese flu drug that had some effect on the corona virus. But for fear of a scary someone on the forum (cough... @Trusteft .....cough) I never did mention it. Hopefully it tests good and we have at least some form of ammunition against this virus.

    Edit: Regarding HIV/AIDS and anti-retrovirals, I did hear if you start taking just anti-retrovirals early enough they could prevent the illness getting any worse.

    You beat me up the last time I said people thought that the measures governments are taking are because of 5G coz it affects oxygen molecules, I'm still sore and bruised from how you did me bro. :(

    In other news, some people think that the corona virus was started by 5G. Apparently.

    *hides*

    Almost 800 more died in Italy alone over the last 24 hours.
    I have a feeling we are going to see similar numbers in several other western countries. USA, UK to name two.
    Here in Greece the number is still at 13 deaths, but it is going to increase over the next two-three weeks no question about it. The morons keep going out for no good reason, going to the beach and everywhere they can because they can't stay inside for more than a day. Spoiled brats that deserve a good beating. Not that would change anything. A moron can't change.

    Our government is flipping out about people not being disciplined. The same government that, three weeks ago, put a doctor on TV who said that this was "the most laughable virus in history, which exists on the Internet" and who told women to feel free to go on shopping tours to Milano for the 8th of March, because that's when the biggest sales are and they are protected by estrogen. Also, the president is playing the hero as always and not wearing a mask in public and saying things like "my children aren't wearing a mask either and the older ones are volunteering, bringing groceries to the elderly".

    BTW, as for the aforementioned doctor, the president said that "no one ever called this virus laughable", despite the fact that the guy did it on national TV and they were both on that press conference, that those who attack the doctor should be ashamed and the guy still gives tons of interviews.

    The prime minister announced a lockdown from 6am Monday morning.

    I've just read this. In short, a 39 year old woman "of good health" died yesterday in New Orleans. She fell ill and went to the doctor on the 10th. Deemed "low risk", she was sent home. She died 12 days later, not having lived long enough to at least see her test results which, after her case had finally been recognized as serious, were due on the same day. A day before she died, though, she felt a little better, so she, her partner and her dog went for a walk outside (when even those who are thought to be healthy should stay in as much as possible). Isn't there anyone sane in that place?!

    Do you really need to have a pandemic to stop eating bats? Or monkeys?
