Hi Monk!

I have been wondering about people in apartments and care flats. I have been viewing this as a flu. I had the flu two years ago, I was down for 3 days. I slept quite well.

Technically, it is a game of chance, every year. Nice way to look at it.🙂

I am hearing that people that have had the measles or that people that have been immunized for them are less likely to get coronavirus. No idea if it is true, I hear a lot of stuff. On the upside both of us my husband and I, have been immunized in our youth, and both of us have had the measles.

I have been hearing also that the younger people getting it, and dying from it, use vapes. Not sure of the validity of that either.

Stay safe Monk, you don’t need this any year!

"that people that have had the measles or that people that have been immunized for them are less likely to get coronavirus."

"I have been hearing also that the younger people getting it, and dying from it, use vapes."

Haven't heard any of this on the statistics and analysis here.
In theory, since Corona enters the lungs, where it does it's damage, anyone who smokes or vapes is vulnerable, as those with asthma, pneumonia, etc.

At any rate, Monk, if you plan to play with that deck I suggest to leave that card out of the pack! It's terrible!

Do the 54 guests interact at all? If you have a common cafeteria, for example, be very careful. If you can get a virtual card game set up with others it can help pass the time.

We do have a lounge but we must stay in our flats, i have just heard that one resident died today of coronavirus.
The card game i'm looking at came out in 1995, 6 years before 9/11, and featured cards like below:-

I'll have to play my cards carefully and perhaps cheat.

Haven't looked to astrology because I don't want to worry myself further. Whatever will be, will be.

Saturn/Pluto/Jupiter conjunction is currently in my 12th house, which I don't like. Hence why I want to just stay ignorant to it all. Same conjunction is conjunct my husband's MC. He works for a company that specialises in virtual meeting software, etc. Interesting how this transit is affecting some people differently. My thoughts are with everyone during this time and I am finding it to be a really anxiety ridden time because of all of the unknowns.
Congrats, anjelik...the natal chart is not destiny, they provide you a warning for your family to take big precautions. Anyone with Leo 25-29 ASC or Cancer 29-Leo 3 in sidereal have sabian symbols Leo 2 and Leo 27 describe a pandemic, like my half sister who happens to live in the the eerily named city of Corona, CA.

The US now has more cases than China and now Italy, but the 8 main states are NY, NJ, CA, WA, IL, TX, LA and FL with the majority of 80,000 cases and 1,500 deaths. While China and East Asia recovered, and Europe may be peaking, the US will not fare well. I would welcome Chinese, Cuban, Iranian and Russian doctor or medical teams to assist our overwhelmed hospitals.

Yikes-- to those of you across The Pond, please stay safe.

One wonders how grocery shopping is supposed to work. Maybe large stores could move to on-line shopping and delivery.

Re: Covid-19: how are you responding?

Can you imagine the families closed up in a tiny apartment in a city, with two little kids?
It's stressing in itself, but most understand how important it is to contain the spreading.

Interesting, but I never heard of 9/11 Truthers mentioning the Illuminati, or nuclear devices--thermite, nothing about radiation.

A "Pearl Harbor-like event" to enable the destabilization of the Middle East, yes.

These cards are frighteningly interesting, to say the least.

Thanks for the link.

Re: Covid-19: how are you responding?

Monk, you're the very first person I know is closest to the pandemic. Too bad you have to stay inside to keep yourself (and others presumably) safe. You didn't get in contact with these 2 people, so I'm sure you never caught covid19. They need to test all the tenants but in the USA if you live there are currently limited. My thoughts and prayers for anyone who is directly affected by the pandemic in anyway.

Yes, it isn't true that only elderly and persons with preconditions are being taken ill.

As always with the flu though the aged are hit the hardest, weakened immunities.

I do not know if it is true, but I am hearing that people that vape tobacco, are hit hard.
