Will the Coronavirus Affect The Hair Transplant Industry?

I suspect from the way you write you come from an incredibly privileged background, the mere assumption you wrote previously of Cosmo being hate filled because he has a different opinion on you on lockdowns itself is delusional and quite sad from someone who tries to put forth a persona that (attempts) to reflect an academic ethos and having opinions dictated by data.

Add up the collective public debt created by previous presidents prior to Obama, It’s not looking drastically different to what a single years deficit might be in the US after this. That’s mere months of damage from lockdown in a country that even prior to this event had debt to GDP at crisis levels. Significant numbers of the population were living paycheck to paycheck before the crisis, future generations and the current younger generation are looking to significantly lower social services for significantly higher costs in terms of tax revenue, including the threat of mandatory inflation through printing currency to counter debt issues.

Individuals nor the government have the ability to deal with this for extended periods, the youth unemployment rate and participation rate currently are horrific to any sensible person. The economic realities for what this would look like in 12 months are scarier than the death rates. Sensible social distancing practices including masks and mandatory self isolation for those with at risk diseases and over 65 strikes a balance between economic reality and saving lives.

I think in a situation like this in which there are no good results and everyone wants the best for their country that it’s the worst time possible to throw around politicized insults without a holistic understanding of consequences to all approaches. If you cannot acknowledge the economic issues, I am not going to call you a terrible person, but you’ve objectively made very clear you have severe Trump derangement syndrome you’re totally out of touch with economic and social reality. And I say that as someone who doesn’t support Trump, my ideal candidate was Yang.

Youre clearly not effected economically, the vast majority of the country and every other country however are. 

As an aside, Cosmo’s conservative memes about the state of the health director shouldn’t offend a single sane individual except in the sense that a woman in that state is a health director. Virtue signaling at its worst, again an easy thing to focus on when you’re totally out of touch with economic realities. A state heath director shouldn’t look like a decaying zombie, get the fuck over it. The signaling to the public it gives is significantly worse than her hurt feelings.

You know nothing about me or what privileges I have or haven't had. That's the problem with this discussion. All these assumptions. I'm not on the street begging, but you're not in an ICU with flooded lungs. Don't underestimate your own lack of perspective.

I'm as sick of this shit as much as everyone else here but I am also seeing people dying. There is no easy way out. Incidentally, I do agree with you that Yang was the best of the crop. I think most reasonable people do, but again what does this have to do with anything.

I don't know what you're referring to as far as the state of the health director. The thing I found most repulsive about his posts were his theories about the secret lab in china concocting a virus and his backseat commentary on complicated medical procedures.

Certain Politicians are responsible for the destruction of the healthcare system and healthcare cut backs and job losses from their “overwhelming” bans & executive orders....but Hospital Corp groups received $175 BILLION from the CARES Act...why layoffs and furloughs?...where did that all that money go???

How stats are cheery picked. Yes, they saw a high of 1801 positives. They also reported 32,000 tests today. That's 10,000 more than the day before when the total was 1347 positives. Overall, their positive percentage has fallen to 4.6%, from 7.5% one week ago. BUT shhhhhh I wouldn’t want to ruin their narrative with FACTS.

Here is Texas, even last month during the quarantine period, the people in parks were NOT wearing masks. When a county judge passed an order to making wearing a mask mandatory many of my friends got offended saying - The government can't take away our freedom and it's against the constitution.

Also, Costco has made it mandatory to wear masks before coming in and are even giving you a mask if you don't have but some of my friends call it taking away freedom.

PS: I wear a mask wherever I go since it;s not a big deal anyway, my freedom/rights/constitution are not bothered much if I wear a mask for my or others safety.

Go figure that Texas cases are increasing. That's what you get when you have too many Kramers and not enough Jerries and Elaines.

Listen man, I’m not trying to say you personally are not doing your best to save lives, that’s not my motive...I’m just fed up with all the bullshit inconsistencies, mismanagement, sheer lunacy that is going on...and almost non of it based in logic nor science. We have to admit that and not have our head in the sand if we all want to get through and past this.

I have a good friend that is an RN in Long Island...he would always tell me that each year per protocol he had to get the flu shot and usually felt a bit ill afterwards and this time after and catching this virus it did such damage to his immune system that he was also close to death, in the hospital for 2 weeks (same one he works in)...I asked his wife why did they not give him the Hydroxychloroquine + Zpack + Zinc medication cocktail, that a doctor in Brooklyn gave his sick infected patients that they all recovered within a few days....my friends wife didn’t have an answer as to why they didn’t give him the combo...and I even have another friend and she was sick with the virus and she received the combo and recovered well...but the fear from the bullshit media narrative that this cheap medication is “unproven” and “unsafe” is truly sick as it could and could have saved so many more lives. Thankfully my RN friend recovered, and I’m not suggesting the Flu shot did him in...but likely it slightly weakened his immune system then him coming in contact with a covid infected patient made it worse.

Ladies and gentleman we have found the cure for the corona virus on a hair loss forum! 

While every other country around the world is recording their lowest cases of corona virus and most countries are opening up gradually or planning on doing in the next week or two the united states has become a laughing stock around the world because of people like you.

I haven’t been to this thread in a while, is @CosmoKramer and @Melvin-Moderatorstill comparing the Covid-19 to the panic people had with the Y2K computer virus? and is CosmoKramer still regurgitating online conspiracy theory’s? 

I just read CosmoKramer saying Sweden is a example which makes me wonder if the USA news is like North Korea where they only show citizens what the government wants them to see or maybe it’s just the 1 specific TV news channel he follows...

Sweden is quickly rising to become the country with the highest death rate per million and are also suffering a economic crisis for the pandemic so now their ridiculous “Killer” strategy is under scrutiny from their whole population and the world!

Here in Europe we have news where the anchorman’s explain highly detailed charts and compare them with countries that were not as quick to shutdown and are now paying a hefty price like the UK, US, Spain, Italy and Brazil (where the damage is much higher than the data their sadistic government is sharing).

I am so sick of this fucking bullshit virus. It's ruined everything. I don't even know who to be mad at anymore. Just tired.

What a miracle it would be if plaquenil was a cure. My hunch is it won't do anything for most, but will cause prolonged QT syndrome and sudden cardiac death in a minority of those who take it, and then these deaths will be mislabeled as heart attacks instead of as a medication effect.

But that's speculation. I'm not going to pretend speculation is fact. That's for politicians, political pundits and armchair warriors.

It’s sad that such ignorant people like yourself are the reason people are steered away from anything helpful and positive. 
As, a life long NYer and following trump in the tabloid news over the decades I never cared for Trump before he was president nor am I fond of him now...but it’s truly sick how some sick minded people will do all they can to push hatred for anything he may suggest may be helpful...

I understand that much of the world hates him and many here as well but to purposefully ignore and propagate falsely something that may save lives no matter the politics of the person is truly disgusting....and it’s these type of people that if they were in dire straights themselves they’d beg to be treated with this to potentially save their life but hypocritically not admit it.

PS. If you think that whatever country you are in is “opening up” again and won’t go back into lockdown in wave 2,3,4,5...you’re kidding yourself...cower away.

The media in the US are very biased, and in general they’re trash. They have been on a fear mongering campaign from the beginning. My point about Sweden is that they haven’t locked down at all, and their numbers are very similar to the US who’s been lockdown for over 2 months. 

The deaths have been inflated, and now that the public have gotten wise, the media has changed their angle too “flatten the curve”. They are the only ones benefiting from this lockdown, them and Jeff Bezos.

I personally along with family members have been taking Zinc & an HCQ-like zinc ionophor for months now, none of us are sick not even a cold, and been out and about amongst many...not saying it’s a “cure”, but it’s maintained our health and possibly improved protection.

This was recorded 20 days ago and the pandemic tends to evolve when drastic mesures are not enforced.

I can share 50 day old post with you comparing Covid-19 to tge Y2K virus but that doesn’t mean that you still believe that today.

Don’t think correcting misguided folk grants me troll status.

USA has a population of 325 million and Sweden has 10 million to say these 2 countries have similar numbers like it’s a good thing is just unreasonable.

Portugal also has 10 million people and our death toll is one freakin third of Sweden!

I’m not talking about overall numbers, I’m talking death per capita.  Also, it’s wise not to turn a blind eye at the death reporting. I can’t speak for Sweden, but in the US it’s been completely off, and many cases have been brought to light that show just how off the numbers were.

Nop Sweden have passed you guys for a while now!
USA has a lot of millions of people living there so if all the states had good responses to the pandemic it would have been easier for the USA to get a low a death per capita rate than it would be for a small country with just 10 million people 58% concentrated in 2 cities (Lisbon and Porto in Portugal).

Melvin, this moron troll doesn’t know his math..

Sweden’s population is 10.3 mil

Infected rate: 1/3rd if 1%
Death rate: 1/30th of 1%

They never fully locked down, they never fully cowered in their homes petrified, they didn’t allow their society and economy to be destroyed...but this idiot knows better. Lol.

What this has taught me is how unprepared we are for a real pandemic, and how opportunistic the media are at reporting news that benefits them. It’s also shown us that very entities that we rely on to report facts “WHO”, are either A. Completely incompetent, or B. Corrupted. 

Either way, I guess the good that can come of this, is that some of these corrupt organizations are seen for what they really are corrupt and inept. I like to look at both point of views, and there’s no doubt this disease is contagious. One of the reasons it’s spread so much is that it doesn’t kill the host. Now, that doesn’t mean that it cannot or won’t kill a person, but objectively looking at things, the chances are minuscule.
