    Just watch as all the large events in 2021 get cancelled as well.

    Maybe 2022 we get lucky enough for the primary waves to pass... but I wouldn't bet on that.

    Fast-spread respiratory diseases don't just vanish because we want them to. Humans need to change their thinking, their acting, and that can take many years... at the moment too many are stuck either in "Denial" phase or "Anger" phase, it will take a while until they switch to "Acceptance" phase and start acting on it.

    Eventually I expect everyone to wear face masks just like we wear pants and skirts. Eventually... not in 2020 or 2021.

    Dont forget the " i dont give a f**k and i`ll never get it" phase, still a lot of those around, a lot more young people hanging a round the parks huddled in groups with out a care or a clue that we still have a long way to go.

    Wonder what New TV tech comes out it? I starting to look at new tv cause I believe me TCL s515 is on verge of failing on top the possible failing MB i have.

    Such a great year.

    Yes, because people have lives to live, people to meet and babies to make. Sitting in the basement with a mask on, while "working" from home is not the future of humanity.

    And dying and/or killing your elderly is ?

    It's mind boggling that so many people are unable to grasp this simple concept:
    The sooner ALL of us get some discipline and stop the spread, the sooner we can get back to our "normal" lives of meeting people, partying, shoving booze and drugs into ourselves and making useless babies.
    The longer people resist this discipline the longer it will take to get back to the known "normality".

    Oh well, now that this has been canned for the year, maybe some of those companies can release there hardware early. I know I'm hanging out for a GPU upgrade.

    They will reopen when they need money.

    Elderly and sick should watch themselves, wear a mask etc. Young people are very rarely affected.
    You think sitting and home and wearing a mask will stop this virus? cold/flu viruses have been among people since the beginning and we are still here. Regular flu kills hundreds of thousands yearly, mostly elderly and nobody cared so far.

    You got it a bit backwards:
    1. Wearing a mask doesn't hardly do anything at all at protecting the wearer. Wearing a mask is to prevent others from getting infected.
    2. The less you interact with public spaces, the less likely you are to spread the virus. So yes, staying home does actually help. The virus is only able to spread if you give it another host. If you are unnecessarily interacting where other people go and don't take proper precautions, you are greatly increasing the chances of it spreading.
    3. Coronavirus isn't scary because of its mortality rate. The problem is that it's highly contagious and has a long incubation period. You could have the disease for days, even weeks, and unknowingly spread it without symptoms.
    4. Except or certain parts of Asia, nobody wears masks when they're sick, and a lot don't stay home either. So yeah, of course colds and flus stick around, because up until recently, people have been pretty inconsiderate about such things.

    I have a feeling they will do something similar to what Comic-Con did with inviting everyone and making it virtual, remember that?

    I would just urge caution re: younger people not getting it.

    One of the main future worries about coronavirus are its parallels with Spanish Flu about 100 years ago which in the second wave killed lots of otherwise young and fit adults. We also know that under 50, those you do need to go to hospital, approx 10% will end up needing ventilatory support or intensive care, which is a big proportion.

    So far more than double the number of annual influenza deaths from coronavirus in USA and rapidly increasing, and you still have half the year left and not out of first wave yet.

    Illnesses exist as long as their are vectors for them to exist in. Staying home and not creating more infections is definitely part of the solution. Also acquired immunity from infection is currently not a thing, as most people appear to be losing their antibodies after a couple of months.

    Be safe people. Going virtual and distance work for now, despite its limitations, is probably amongst the best things we could be doing.

    SCAM-19, when will you sheeple wake up?

    The only "spread" here is made by panicked minds like most of you.

    Spanish flu ? parallels ? boggles the mind :s

    COVID related miss information, disinformation campaigns are being taken down on Facebook, YouTube, & Twitter in the interest of public healthcare during the pandemic.

    The more you know. The fact is your post is literally spam. Also how’d we veer off course from CES?

    It's hardly worse than seasonal flu, but everything is shut down. Eventually having everything closed down is going to cause far more death and suffering than unchecked virus would ever be able to do.

    It's not only CES or these big events, basically all conferences are canceled or are virtual, which is less than ideal to put it mildly. Hope there will not be some push to make it a permanent thing, as the conferences basically lose most of its value when they are just virtual event.

    Yeah, no. Who decides it is safe to go back to normal ? Who will decide that a new CES will be ok to go ? the WHO and the chinese communist party :rolleyes:

    PS: remember a few years ago when a bunch of youtubers got the flu at a similar convention ?
