Things are still changing WAY TOO FAST.

The best indicator of how many people feel about the future is probably how the markets are changing. ... and we all know how that is whip-sawing back and forth.

I remain hopeful, and if we all can keep up on vigilant cleaning and distancing, the resolution of this will be here sooner and for the better.

Stay healthy!

We need to keep in mind that the places with the most positive cases are almost universally ALSO the places that are doing lots of testing. Until widespread testing is available (and it's nowhere near that yet), we have no idea how many people are infected and spreading this thing around. Hong Kong did a quick lockdown with good results....then relaxed the restrictions too soon and now they're seeing a surge in infections. We should NOT do that! Especially here, with it's preponderance of residents over 60.

Polls are BS, I hope I am wrong? Especially when there political overtones buried. I hope I am wrong?

Trump just threw a date out there to see what the reaction would be. The state governors are the people who will decide when we get back to normal.

Along with leadership, that seems to be like watching...a ping-pong ball or a yo-yo.

My concern is that if our economy collapses, society as we know it will be destroyed. Our money will be worth nothing. There will be no food, no supplies, no services, no law and order and no healthcare. We can forget about quality of life and life as we know it. People will die from starvation and lack of care. There are no easy alternatives, but everything hinges on stabilizing our economy.

Yes, but on the other hand, if we die because of the virus, our money won’t be worth much to us anyways. First things first.

That's a valid concern, as is calling the "all clear" too soon. But we can't stay hunkered down forever.

That's what Trump is referring to the cure being worse than the disease.

Let's hope he makes the right call when the time comes to do so.

Wow! That's a big IF. Chill! My father made it through D Day as a member of the 29th Division. Go buy some Hershey Bars! They helped carry him through Normandy.

Everything hinges on preventing the virus from exploding. There is not a choice between the economy and preventing the virus from devastating the health of Americans. How do you think our quality of life will be with huge numbers of sick and dying. Will the infected be going to work. It is a false dichotomy.
