Yea, I missed the "county" thing. They wont achieve much with only "recommendations" tho, I guess they are trying out a hybrid of social distancing and crowd immunity, but this will be a dangerous experiment, I have heard that many prominent virologists are facepalming themselves after hearing Sweden's sluggishness and indecisiveness, but hey, good luck and stay inside as much as you can, Sweden could be a huge ticking bomb.

On the other hand, as of tomorrow, we are more or less in a lock-down here. Leaving your home is permitted only for necessity purposes, it is even forbidden to travel/drive outside of your county, you must wear a mask inside every closed public space etc. Still, I have a dog and with it a green light to pretty much roam around freely, so no biggie.

Well, in the meantime, Doom Eternal is insanely fun. Rip and tear, until quarantine is done!

Mexico is going the same way as Sweden by the looks of things.

Didn’t we have a Mexicanese here?

Re: Quarantine Thread

I've been off work for almost 2 weeks. My wife and I just been gaming and watching a lot of movies and shows we've been meaning to watch and smoking our weight in weed. We watched Jojo Rabbit last night and it was pretty good. Finally going to watch either Doctor Sleep or Zombieland Doubletap tonight.

Here, in the southeastern states, it's been a really weird couple weeks. Half the population seems to be panicking, others couldn't give less of a fuck. There's hardly any products on the shelves of any store because a lot people refuse to stay indoors. Cases of covid-19 rises everyday so I wouldn't be surprised if I won't be returning to work next week. I wouldn't mind, that way I can focus on FF7 (I'm already chomping at the bit for RE3).

2 years is doubtful since they said a vaccine is at most a year and a half away.
