      Not quite sure what you are blathering about there. A third grader makes more sense.
      The Governor is doing well, she has put social distancing into place. Jack asses like you ignore such things, then blame others. Typical loser liberal.
      IF what has been put out by the Governor’s office is/was followed, it will help to slow the spread.
      Slowing the spread gives more time to find ways to fight this virus, but go to Fleet Farm, Walmart, McDonalds. It don’t matter to people with a narrow view just because their party lost.

    The key is social isolation from others. It appears to be airborne given the rapid spread. Think of it as just breathing in the air in an infected room. Stay home with your loved ones. Avoid others. The eastern Hospitals are already filled with many who have left this world. Stay safe. Stay home.
