I'm not familiar with the Author of the letter, but what does where the Author's letter appear have to do with its credibility? It's an "open" letter. Can you address his concerns?

It's a step in the right direction, in my view. While the motivations for the initial CDC guidance on masks is hardly important now, it's prudent to encouraging masking en masse, assuming we can...

I have no idea who or the qualifications of this Dr., or his medical pedigree. From the beginning, many didn't take this seriously enough, and, perhaps because they hadn't, most are overreacting...

Having lived in SE Asia (HK), the "mask conundrum" wasn't exactly a complicated one to figure out. Asymmetrical risk should be treated differently than a general risk environment. To put another...

In my view, the characterization that the handling of this thing has all the hallmarks of group think laced with overly emotional responses is fair, especially for most here on FT, which, aside form...

First, I'm not offering any novel plans for containment, only that it may be a good idea to isolate facilities housing those in the very high risk demographics, since it's been brought up so many...

If I recall, there was a CNBC financial reporter on the NYSE floor joked, "maybe we’d be just better off if we gave it to everybody, and then in a month it would be over.” And, then followed by, "the...

*If* this economic shutdown continues, there will be a portion of the population here who may become despaired to a point where they may dispense with any regard for the social order. While we live...

*If* I wanted to for whatever reason drive to my place in Tahoe, neither you nor anyone else is going to stop me. All anyone has to do is drive around SF to see this shelter in place isn't enforced,...

Ah, I don't know 100%, I suppose. We've all been practicing vigorous mitigation and social distancing, so I'd imagine the odds of being infected are remote. Not that I intend to violate the shelter...

Gov Newsom's shelter in place? For now, I don't have an issue with it, but if I chose to leave, I'm not sure anyone's going to stop me. And, if they tried, we'll see what a Fed Judge has to say...

Agreed. If I even remotely, even with the coronavirus, felt I could be infected, I'd stay put. Moreover, I couldn't agree more that this experiment called the United States of America is bigger...

With the coronavirus, I'm not concerned being sheltered in place here in CA, but if this were a pathogen with, say, a 20% mortality, I'd challenge it. I'm not a lawyer, but if I'm not infected,...

Understood.

The goal should be risk reduction, not elimination. Since some of our Gov’ts powers exercised here are so extreme, I’ll use a war analogy. Air supremacy would be ideal, but the...

I suspect you're right, and the number may even be higher. Far as I know, virtually everyone I know in Manhattan have left.
