Over 10 Million Americans Applied For Unemployment Benefits In
March As Economy Collapsed - The past two weeks have erased nearly
all the jobs created in the past five years, a sign of how rapid,
deep and painful the economic shutdown has been on many American
wow that chart really puts it into perspective from a visual
on a side note I have a slight fever, headahe, slight sore
throat. I haven't been anywhere been home for a few weeks now so I
doubt it's the Covid 19, but who the heck knows. Will continue to
monitor the situation. For now I'm a bit run down and tired.
I used to get chronic Strep throat once a year, so could be
that. I'll keep ya posted.
Matt- FWIW - Three of my friends got covid and all recovered/
All three are cardiologists 45-48 yrs old. One got bad
symptoms but he took rest and tylenol and isolated for 14 days.
Nice to hear arun
MATT, since you have a sore throat and headache and fever,
no known COVID exposure, but a history of recurrent strep throat,
AS A DOCTOR, I would suggest you get a strep test ASAP since it is
so treatable and responds quickly. I it’s negative, then you
should consider other options. You hope you feel better soon!
Sounds like a plan! Our C tests are taking up to 10 days
to come back from Labcorp! By then you are either well or dead!
Waiting on the 13 minute new test by Abbott. That is what we need!
I don’t think you sound like COVID-19.
According to reports we tested over 1 million people so far in
this country but received results back for only 50% of those tests.
Great system we have working here in this country
Yes I actually bought a test kit, should be here tomorrow, it's
the same test they use in many offices for Step. Most places
around here won't even test you for the C Virus unless you are
really bad and have trouble breathing. I know a buddy who
thinks him and his family have it, they've had fevers for 5 days
and doctors told theme they will not test them unless they have
trouble breathing. So that highlights the need for these tests to
be more widespread.
anyway if it is Strep I have prescription already for an
antibiotic. again I'll test myself tomorrow. If it is strep
it tends to progress quickly - the previous times I've had it my
fever would get close to 103.5 - 104, that's pretty high for an
adult. gotta tell you, when it's that high you can't
function. Again I haven't been anywhere so I have doubts it's
Hey Matt, hope you're better soon. Glad you've got the
test coming and you're already armed with antibiotics. It sounds
like it's unlikely you've got the virus. Good luck and feel better
soon! Take care of yourself.
thx everyone. At least I have the weekend to rest up
Get well soon Matt, hopefully it's not the virus.
That's a staggering chart. Scary. So what's a recession
and what's a depression? Just asking for a friend.
The difference between Recession and Depression is the extent of
the job losses. The flippant answer is "when your neighbour
loses their job, it's a recession; when *you* lose your job, it's a
Re: difference between Recession and Depression -- I was kind of
joking when I asked, but I did actually google it and basically it
says over 20% unemployment = a depression (and that it needs to be
an extended time). I promise you when we hit 20% in the coming
weeks the press will not be calling it a depression. Since there is
no real definition I think it's going to be a dealers choice --
call it what you want, but no matter what you call it it's a
It is a scary chart. I honestly never thought i would see
anything like it. This makes 1929, 1987, 2000, 2008 look like
a Sunday picnic.
