    Leaving it up to each individual business is never going to work. I think that something like this needs to be enforced at the state or national level.

    Florida reported a new record of 3,822 new COVID-19 cases today: https://www.heraldtribune.com/news/20200619/another-new-record-3822-new-covid-19-cases-in-florida-on-friday Italy had 6,600 cases on its worst day on 21 March before cases started going down. That was almost 2 weeks after the...

    Iger and Chapek Livid With Lucasfilm

    Maybe they want reshoots on Season 2 of The Mandalorian, which can't happen now and would delay the planned release date? Disney+ needs new content, especially now that everyone is at home. Netflix just reported 16 million new sign-ups due to lockdowns.

    If that is true then there are still a lot of cold inside places with air conditioning where the virus could spread more freely. Unless they turn off all the air conditioning. 😅

    The flattening of new cases per day may also be caused by testing limits. If they're only able to test 10,000 per day and ~ 10% are positive you won't get more than 1,000 new cases per day on the graph.

    This video is a little gross, but it illustrates nicely how droplets spread through sneezing, coughing and talking and how micro-droplets can hang around in stagnant air:

    April trips canceled by Disney?

    It is so sad to see that so many people distrust the media, experts and government to such an extent. Do the media and government officials get it wrong sometimes? Yes, of course. You shouldn't blindly believe everything you hear. But for so many Americans to have such a deep mistrust of these...

    April trips canceled by Disney?

    Some people seem incapable of extrapolating data and understanding exponential growth. We're just at the beginning of this and it can get a lot worse. If a state has "only 1500" cases it's well on its way to getting overwhelmed unless drastic social distancing measures are taken. Italy had "only...

    New line etiquette?

    They should give everyone one of those huge sombreros that they sell at the Epcot Mexico pavilion to us as spacers.

    Each state is going through its own thing. The University of Washington has put together these projections for each state: http://covid19.healthdata.org/projections You can see that they estimate New York will have its peak mid-April, but Florida not until early May and Virginia not until mid-May.

    Exactly. Without herd immunity or a vaccine and 99% of the population still susceptible, you can't just lift social distancing in the summer and go back to normal. You have to go slowly. It was just one person in China who started all this. Look at graphs of previous flu pandemics and there is...

    What's Still On and What's Now Off

    $350,000 seems extremely low. Even if all 80,000 cast members make just minimum wage, that alone would be 80,000 x $8.46 x 8 hours = $5.4 million per day. I'm concerned that this crisis will go on for a long time. China has been in lockdown for 2 months and they did a very good job keeping it...

    I don't know. Isn't RunDisney just a division of Disney Parks? I imagine RunDisney would notify everyone about a cancellation.

    It works for me. They keep changing the layout. The list of counties is now on the right and they added some more stats. I hope they'll add the number of recovered patients once people start recovering.

    I was thinking about the Spanish Flu and Walt Disney, who was born in 1901. The Spanish Flu affected young people very hard, and Walt Disney was 17 years old at the time. It turns out that he actually caught the Spanish Flu and survived. See: Ten Famous People Who Survived the 1918 Flu. Can you...

    Exponential growth starts slow, but we're just at the beginning of this. It took 3 months to reach 100,000 cases worldwide and 12 days to reach 200,000. Hopefully the measures that are being taken will be enough to flatten the curve and not overwhelm the healthcare system.

    Exactly! That's why some countries are finally seeing their peak of cases starting to flatten about 2 weeks after a lockdown. The longer we wait with enforcing stricter measures the longer this will drag out. I wish Florida would shut non-essential businesses and shut the beaches. Seeing the...
