I'm actually more hopeful and optimistic tonight than I've been in several days. Of course that can quickly change as I'm processing new information daily about this virus. But the fact the infected numbers have gone down for 2 straight days in Italy along with now decline of new daily numbers in Germany, France, and Spain give me hope the worst might be behind us. I know we'll get explosion of cases here in parts of the US but I now feel like we'll contain it. We're trying different drugs. I listened to little bit of the daily Trump virus conference talk tonight and felt Trump is finally getting it somewhat. At least the parts I watched tonight felt little less like circus and circle jerk. I agree with him we need to think about opening certain parts of the country again and that it's critical to get companies and people back to working again. Give the companies the abilities to test their workers and give everyone masks. Test for antibodies with blood test. Setup some kind of system and protocols. But the country needs to go back to work soon. Or else we will go into Great Depression 2.0. We need to do everything we can to avoid that. Because once we go into Great Depression 2.0, it's like falling into an abyss. That scares me more than the virus.
