Default Corona Virus......

I am wondering how everyone is handling this subject...its been
on my mind for a while and yesterday I just augered out someone toilet and they were sick with the sniffles.....

Being plumbers we get calls all the time from folks as sick as dogs needing plumbing repaired who do not care one bit about the people coming to their door to repair things.....

Personally I think my immune system is extreme due to the pathogens I get around every day but this is a new level of fun and games for everyone....

I wonder if over in China where they let this pathogen out of the bio labs if service people are asking if you have anyone sick in your home or not before they come out to do repairs???

and Yes, I do have the masks in my truck already.... but am saving them for later

any thoughts??

lots of thoughts here, some conspiracy some not...I personally think this is a bug cooked up in a lab as a bio weapon and it is not any normal corona virus...either 1 of 2 things....china let this out on purpose to kill off the old and sick to cleanse their people, or someone else let a bio weapon out ....why? well it all depends on what happens in the end..the numbers still dont add up for all the fuss the powers tobe are making, in the USA on any normal year 50,000+ plus people die of the common flu..and hundreds of thousands get the flu and recover and it doesnt make the news...

so the media and governments are not saying what exactly this virus is thats going around and that is the wild card on not knowing where this will end up..
but for day to day work its not a concern yet...

Our big mess this week was in a mens bathroom, fecal, TP, and paper towels! Water and kibble all over the floor. I hut down the bathroom for 2 days, had our janitors bleach down the whole fecking bathroom.

Honestly I’m not concerned about it. If it was the new Black Death, there would be far more bodies stacked up in the streets by now. But seriously, like SRDH said.... the conspiracies.

Hong Kong was protesting and I was thinking it was close to civil war, or a massacre. I really haven’t paid attention to where in China it started or how close to Hong Kong. Kinda obvious, if I were an evil dictator and some of my slaves started acting up, I’d just wipe them out. In reality if China performed a mass murder the world would react. Release a virus, not me, that was Mother Nature!

Another thought is impeachment failed, they can’t make Trump look bad no matter what. So the Dems collude with China to release a “plague” with the promise of removing Trump’s tariffs. Election and Hong Kong, two birds, one stone. Now hype this new flu to the point that it’s more deadly than the bird flu or swine flu.

I’m not saying that it’s not a danger, but I don’t think it’s as bad as it’s made out to be. Death vs recovery tells the tail.

Also trying to keep this out of P&R....

I see that almost daily! Even waste deep when necessary, waders of course. But mostly in residential. Once I got a main line, about a foot deep. Once I got it open, there was a 12í diameter 1í high of sht and TP! I had to kick paths in the ring to let the rest of the water to the floor drain.

Obviously different situations, you definitely did the right thing! Iíve come across restaurants where the bathroom looked like what you describe. I clean the line and send a bill, the clean up is on them and I guarantee they put the minimum possible effort in to cleaning.

It seems like a lot of hype and fear mongering. Those countries where the cases are the highest, tend to have healthcare systems and living conditions that’s are not very good.

Not that this should be taken lightly, but remember SARS, or Swine Flu?
