yes, it certainly will extend until September if villagers continue to have parties and congregate at the town square not practicing social distancing and staying at home. Perhaps they are bored renters? In any case, I understand Sumter County Sheriff's office is unable to stop gatherings BUT can stop and ask them to please follow Presidents and Governors guidance on 6 ft social distancing !

Let's see. Currently the NASDAQ is up 2.3%. S&P up 1.9%. Great advice.

I’ll bet you if he would of said the middle of April people would of raised more h _ _ _ about that if it didn’t end on the exact date. Guess you didn’t listen to what he said in the Rose Garden yesterday. He explained why he used April 30th as a tenitive date. Yea, it might not be over until Sept. 1st. There’s no magic wand! We’ve all got to be patient.

There are two problems with that. It usually takes years to get that kind of approval and it's never done without thousands of tests. The second problem is much of the material that is used to make those drugs comes from China. I don't know if we have enough raw materials in this country to fulfill the demand.

I don't what kind of power the president has over the FDA and it might be that congress needs to get involved. But the president can invoke the DPA to force drug companies to make Hydroxy Chloraquine and Z Paks.

But until there is a cure we'll be stuck in our current position.

A vaccination is at least a year away.




Maybe not. I have a positive feeling that scientist's around the world are working on a vaccine non stop.

This thread has switched from a medical safety one to a financial one. Both are important. As to the physical one, I'm still waiting for "The Rest of the Story." Are the hand washing, no hand shaking, keep a safe distance guidelines that are extended, which make sense anyway, or is it keeping closed for business for another month? I think, and hope, that it's the former only.

There's no doubt medical scientists around the world are working 24x7 on ways to mitigate / "cure" / prevent Covid19 for lots of reasons.

Anyone who does this successfully will reap billions ... which is fine with me. Free market in action.

Down to 10,000 if we're lucky? Take a pill Chicken Little. If I had free cash I would be buying.

Panic selling is NOT the way to go

I have a lot more confidence in how this president handles the crisis than the previous one. I have confidence that if there is a recession, this one will have the country recover in a lot shorter time period. Just my opinion, and we will see how it pans out. America has gone through a lot harder times than this, and came back a shining beacon for the rest of the world. Stress and hysteria does not help anyone. It only shortens lives. Think of it as an interesting footnote in history; something to tell your great grandkids about. I wonder when the ration cards will be issued. Think I will go out and fill my gas tank before gasoline is rationed. I know, I know the reason for the gas rationing was because of the war shortage and it does not pertain to this situation. No need to make a difficult time into a total disaster. Things could be worse than this. It's not like we are fighting a war in Europe and in Asia.
