NYC doesn't look like they are in lockdown, all their buses and trains are full of people and everybody is sitting on each other laps. No wonder why the virus is doubling everyday in that city.

Human race in today’s times: 1. Have to fly helicopters over beaches in Brazil to drive away people 2. Police in India beating people driving on streets with sticks since they are not following the lockdown rules 3. Some people in Europe do not believe the severity of the virus and complain that cafes, restaurants should be open 4. Japanese public come out to take pictures of the cherry blossoms despite the lockdown 5. Mayors in Italy scold residents for violating lockdown 6. Old people are the ones dying, who cares attitude by the people who ‘care’ for the economy Truly Sad and Strange times..

A Prayer to Combat the Coronavirus Pandemic* Most Merciful and Triune God, We come to You in our weakness. We come to You in our fear. We come to You with trust. For You alone are our hope. We place before You the disease present in our world. We turn to You in our time of need. Bring wisdom to doctors. Give understanding to scientists. Endow caregivers with compassion and generosity. Bring healing to those who are ill. Protect those who are most at risk. Give comfort to those who have lost a loved one. Welcome those who have died into Your Eternal Home. Stabilize our communities. Unite us in our compassion. Remove all fear from our hearts. Fill us with confidence in Your care. (mention your particular concerns and prayers now) Jesus, I trust in You. Jesus, I trust in You. Jesus, I trust in You. Amen.

I'm in Washington and had to go Home Depot for some parts to fix a leak. It was the busiest I've ever seen that store yet we're under a Stay at Home Order. People won't listen, and they were just walking around window shopping and acting like nothing is happening. I got what I needed and haven't left the house since.

"400 ventilators? Do you want a pat on the back? We need 30,000" Who's going to run 30,000 ventilators? One ICU ventilator patient typically has a nurse with 2 other patients TOTAL. One Respiratory therapist runs average of 6 to 8 ventilators. You can go triple the people needing these care providers, quadruple it, it's still not going to equal 30,000 ventilators and there are not enough health care providers to manage 30,000 ventilator patients AND MANY COVID19 patients are not going on ventilators ANY many of these deaths could be people who have decided they don't want life support or CPR. AND MANY OF THOSE WITH COVID19 ARE CAREGIVERS (who's replacing them?) Prior to COVID19 there weren't respiratory therapists, nurses & doctors sitting home without jobs in NY. They were ALL already employed. What he should have requested is healthcare providers accompany the ventilators. Doctors, respiratory therapists & nurses CAN NOT MANAGE 30,000 more ventilator patients in NY. I knew his handlers would make a partisan. Trump was getting along too well with governors of NY & CA.
