Ah, that sucks a little, yes. Though you can do it with small doses.Problems is that I have a tiny sink. Might get a bucket haha.
Yes. Hong Kong just got their 2nd wave started because they thought it was already safe and opened up their borders for a moment.The quarantine isn't gonna end any time soon, don't get your hopes up.
We are likely talking a few months here
florida closed down all restaurants sans pick up and delivery. My job is uncertain at this point, I work both buss and fryer/expo. They told me to stay home this weekend while they will evaulate where we stand on monday so fingers cross that I get at least two or three shifts this week. thankfully I have a around 20k saved up but no clue how long this will last.
Bakery is closed, bread, flour and yeast in my supermarket not available. ¯\(ツ)/¯
Supermarket assured me it's coming in daily, but that doesn't help much if people keep on buying like crazy.
It's not like there is nothing else to eat, so it's not really a problem. But it is strangely hard to get bread or the ingredients for bread...
So, started cultivating my own yeast, sourdough and found a supplier that is selling flour, in 25kg packs. It wasn't even expansive, just an unreasonable amount for a 4 person household. I guess we are making our own bread and buns from now on. But so are many people in my neighborhood. Kind of crazy side effect. Once this is over this will be a nation of bakers.
Anyway, first "Brötchen" (Buns) came out of the oven just fine (dough rested over night). They are surprisingly good.
Not a baker here, but an Asian food aficionado, and the rice shortage is annoying as fuck.found a supplier that is selling flour, in 25kg packs. It wasn't even expansive, just an unreasonable amount for a 4 person household.
I too cannot keep up with the numbers. One day, it is 2500 deaths. A week later, it is 7000. Next week, it might be 15000. Exponential growth is so damn scary when you encounter it in your daily life.Holy shit, i just saw that Italy crossed 7000 deaths?!
Given that you follow this so closely, I hesitate to say this given that you probably already know. Confinement's effects are seen only much later on the deaths given the incubation period and the time it takes for the virus to run its course. Still, the curve should flatten for these places that obey confinement.I too cannot keep up with the numbers. One day, it is 2500 deaths. A week later, it is 7000. Next week, it might be 15000.

In France, there are ~1100 deaths, and ten day ago, it felt like we had things under relative control with less than 150 deaths. Just for yesterday: 240 deaths, which is a lot more than the total since the start of the outbreak we had a week ago. Next week, these already gigantic numbers will be dwarfed once again.
France is perfectly walking in Italy's steps. Spain is on another level, so scary.
The good news is that the lockdown seems to have a positive effect in Italy, albeit with a delay.
And it will get worse, this is just the beginning.Another red day.
No idea, but I wouldn't be surprised.I read a post about a guy who was mocking this whole thing while vacationing in Italy, then got to Spain, returned to Mexico and his mother dying of the virus. I wonder if it that was real.
AFAIK, the U.S. highly increased their testing in the last couple of days. The current infection numbers are probably just a representation for what has been going on for a long time now. The number of deaths seems to be currently a better indication of how wide spread the infection is.Just what a massive disaster this is shaping up to be...
Indeed. South Korea should be the role model for every other country in the world.AFAIK, the U.S. highly increased their testing in the last couple of days. The current infection numbers are probably just a representation for what has been going on for a long time now. The number of deaths seems to be currently a better indication of how wide spread the infection is.
To give you an idea: Germany has half the number of reported infections, but the number of deaths is significantly lower (a fifth).
Very high testing capacities are important in general.
Quick, reliable and mass testing would allow for a different strategy: Find and isolate infected people asap, instead of having to shut down everything.
This kind of strategy seems to work pretty well in South Korea btw.
