    Are you implying that they're not essential? I mean weed shops are debatable, but people still need food, and may need to travel as well. I know Trump is heavily connected to the building industry, but builders are still working in the UK as well so there must be some other reason I'm not seeing why its necessary for them to continue. It might just be that the economic cost of delaying building work would be horrible.

    with more strip clubs closing down and the dancers finding other jobs, don't forget to support things such as boober eats.

    No. I'm just stating what businesses are open.

    over here they're keeping press shops and newspaper stands open, ostensibly 'to keep the public informed' (government quote). as several shop owners have told me over the last few days they are being forced to remain open because of the cigarette sales and lottery tickets, of which over 90% of the sales go directly to the government

    'forced' as in they do not get a 4,000 a month substitution cheque from the government to keep their business afloat in the long run if they close down now. (This is the monthly amount that pubs, restaurants etc are getting right now during the semi lockdown). I imagine in some countries most businesses don't get anything from the government so enterpreneurs could have been worse off over here

    RIP CEITEDMOFO. Trump is about to napalm or low-yield-nuke those non-essentials who lack Anunnaki jawlines or the ability to pump their own gas.

    It's ramping up now, global death toll is doubling every few days.

    Well Murica just took the worldwide lead in number of positive cases. Italy & Spain are falling apart, somehow the Germans are looking after their patients better. Even in Switzerland the death rate in the German cantons are much lower than that of the Italian & French ones.

    All the equipment China is sending over to Europe barely works. The rapid test kits were inaccurate which caused cases to spike in Spain. Face masks sent to the Netherlands don't work either apparently.

    the Germans ordered a huge amount of tests in time, which might go toward explaining why they seem to be handling containment well. they reacted more swiftly than their neigboring countries when they saf the first development of the disease in Italy.

    I have no explanation for the German speaking part of Switzerland though.

    Also, I saw an interview with a German doctor yesterday who stated that so far most patients there are around 40 years old (better chances at healing) but that they are now beginning to see more elderly people at the hospitals, whose survival chances are lower.

    so the situation in Germany might slowly get worse. or not, it's hard to make predictions, not being a scientist and all.


    it looks like the French government is expecting things to get (much) worse in their country soon. an even stricter policy is now in place (people staying in etc.) and they are bringing patients to the west of the country (some eastern regions have reached full capacity), to Germany and to Luxemburg, a country as big as CEITED's tiled living room.

    330 million people in this country. Stores are still open, it's cold, people are still travelling, and we have governors and a President who lacks an understanding of what's going on. They're concerned about the economy because they don't what to shut down the country. We're in trouble. People are losing their jobs (thankfully I'm still employed), cleaning supplies are always sold out, and people are constantly not listening regarding social distancing. Non-essential businesses are open even through they should be closed.

    I'm hoping in mid April or May, this virus will go away.
