How many of those test kits were either fake or defective, and imported from China, Along with all those counterfeit N95 face masks??
Inquiring minds, and all that.....
I read a couple days ago Customs seized a bunch of that crap.

We shouldn't import anything from China, and us being dependent on them to a degree gives them propaganda opportunities.

You don't have to like it. It's a very special version, though. Besides, not a single soul - or! I usually don't like his playing and singing either. But I find this version including video impressive. Somehow I find his singing fitting in this situation.

I'm still waiting to see how many businesses mysteriously go up in flames, And file insurance claims.(And how many actually get away with it)...

Somewhat questionable is the payment of dividends / profits from 2019 and the simultaneous receipt of state support. Last year's profits are clear, but still.
On Swiss TV they showed an entrepreneur who voluntarily renounces them. He said that he could not send his employees on short-time work and have profits transferred at the same time. That seems to be a super company boss anyway! Unfortunately, there are not very many of these left. He is so committed to his employees. Helps energetically and does not only think about filling his own bag.

A Chairman of the Board of a chocolate company received 7.8 million francs! A total of CHF 345 million was paid out in this company. The employees were sent on short-time working.

National Visit Your Relatives Day (5/18) has been cancelled.
If there's one silver lining out of all this, WE all have a legitimate reason not to visit the in-laws this year.... :!:

Trump says he's taking hydroxychloroquine to prevent COVID-19, despite FDA warning

I generally recommend against this practice but in this specific case for the patient in casu : please continue (and BTW rumour has it that doubling the dose every 24 hours guarantees the subject will be free of Covid-19 long before a vaccine is available. ;)

TRUMP: "When you test, you have a case. When you test, you find something is wrong with people. If we didn't do any testing we would have very few cases."

I rest my case. :shock:
