Re: Quarantine Thread

All of the bars, restaurants, movie theaters, schools, etc are closed here. I'm out of work until at least the 30th. Shit's retarded. Oh, and the Mayhem concert at my favorite venue got cancelled.

At least I got Spawn MK11 and Doom Eternal to help pass the time

Same here in Cali. Most of the stores are still open, but entertainment in general is closed. Luckily, I work in logistics, and we're crazy busy, so I'm still making money. Lots of people I know are screwed though.

It's actually kind of surreal how much my day to day hasn't changed, what with how nuts it is for other people.

Re: Quarantine Thread

I'm in Melbourne. Running super low on toilet paper and the trains are pretty much empty.

I'll be working from home next week too.

Can't believe we're probably looking at six months of this cuntness, but, it is comforting to know (in a kinda fucked up way) that everyone else across the world is going through the same shit though.

It's likely most of us will get infected with it over the next few months. I'm pretty much fucked if I catch it though as I've got a respiratory disease/immune system disorder.

I ain't scared of dying, but I am scared of giving it to my family... especially my Mum and Dad as they're ancient now.

get some friends to bring you enough supplies for a week or two, lock yourself up as tight as possible, and have your nearest epidemiologist on speed dial.

btw, you're not "pretty much fucked", even in your condition your odds to live are still over 90%

Also in Melbourne. Just farting around at home ordering Uber Eats every day. Had/have to go see a doctor because of some ear infection unfortunately, so some more chances to pick it up, if I don’t have it already.

I've got a specialist assigned to me through a local hospital. Good dude and a total nerd (which is how all doctors should be).

Told me I'm the first patient he's ever had that fist bumps him instead of shaking hands.

I'm hoping what you say is true. The specialist wasn't as positive, but I guess he's just making sure I'm fully informed I guess.

I've called it and started working from home and only leaving the house to go to the shops every couple of days. Work is feeling pretty pointless right now though tbh... My view is that our 'official' advice from the gov is at least 2 weeks behind where we really should be.

I think if everyone basically dials back all their social interactions significantly, we'll start getting things close to under control. A lot of people might still eventually get it but hopefully a few breakthroughs happen first (though I'm not expecting an actual vaccine any time soon). I'm not quite sure how long we'll be able to keep up this shit though... I'm feeling for my small business/casually employed mates right now.

Dunno if this link will work but just read it on FB and thought it was pretty interesting:

Re: Quarantine Thread

Good to see another Melbournite on here. Stoked that Licht has moved here too!

I'm a bit of a hermit these days by default, so I'm not finding the social distancing thing all that challenging.

Problem also with the bug is that it lasts for 5-7 days on surfaces, but most cases have been transmission through close contact.

Re: Quarantine Thread

I've had the VID since around Monday. For me it started with a dry, almost unnoticeable cough, followed the next day with a strong fever which lasted a few days, followed by muscle aches and oddly enough today I have back pain. Symptoms have varied for people but I'm lucky it's just been like a confused flu for me. I've just been holed up in my apartment riding it out, its subsiding gradually. Couldn't care less about being Ill as long as I keep the fuck away from other humans for the next while and not spread it, a concept that still seems to elude a shit ton of people but theres no curing stupid I guess. This is going to be a long bumpy ride and people need to start pulling their heads out of their arses. We are all knee deep in shit but there should be some comfort in knowing we are ALL in it and as such need to unify as a species now more than ever

Re: Quarantine Thread

Cheers brah but I'll be absolutely fine, no underlying respiratory issues and in overall good health. It's just making sure it stays contained within the husk that is my vessel that's the most important thing. People all over the place are being far too complacent about it with no idea about the concept of flattening the curve

Re: Quarantine Thread

Glad to hear you’re okay Vadge. You’ve been on my mind. Where I’m at shit’s getting fucking crazy. They’re probably going to lockdown the entire city this Monday I don’t know how I’m gonna stay in shape and continue in school. I’ve been drinking heavily by myself since Friday living in blissful ignorance isolating myself playing video games and watching South Park shit faced. I’ve had to stop drinking so I don’t go through withdrawal. I went through about 8 liters of tequila.

Re: Quarantine Thread

WTF all the Semen crew in Melbs and I've moved. I'm in a shitty little QLD town now...no toilet paper here too because humans are stupid. No cases in town yet but some in the surrounding areas close by, only a matter of time. Still going to work for now, hope I don't get laid off.

Also Melbourne (wtf). Came home amidst moving overseas - just managed to get flights before everything was grounded/closed. Now in 14 days self quarantine.

When did you move De Profoundis? :(

Re: Quarantine Thread

Just lost my job because of coronavirus.

I worked for a nursing agency and a lot of clients put services on indefinite hold. As I was still within probation, I was the first out the door.

Don't know what I'm going to do as a lot of other people are going to be in the same boat.

Might just start selling weed again.

Re: Quarantine Thread

I'm pretty sure I got covid-19 in January (no way to tell for sure, as I don't have health insurance) and it was the weirdest flu I've ever experienced. Started with a cough on the first day, turned into terrible chest pain and shallow breathing, fever chills/aches, and a pounding headache that lasted about 4 days. Nose was never stuffed or runny. Day 4, everything subsided.

Not sure how things are in NYC at large, since I've been doing nothing but staying home and playing Fallout New Vegas. Still technically employed, but it's looking like this Friday will be my last day. The Dept of Labor website keeps crashing for people who are filing for unemployment and the only way to succeed is by calling literally 100x a day for about 5 days. Lookin' forward to that.

I'm amazed that more isn't being done on a global scale to alleviate hospitals with a surplus of medical equipment. I don't understand how the covid deniers don't understand that this isn't your average flu. When has the average flu depleted hospitals around the world of all available equipment? Even if we were to assume that this is purely media-infused hysteria, the problems everyone is facing is real. What the fuck is the point in denying that?

Definitely sounds like you had it. Pretty beast mode that you got over it so quickly too.

I still can't believe that so many people are going to end up unemployed as a result of this?? What the fuck is everyone going to do??

If we end up living in a post apocalyptic society, shotgun being a gang leader!
