The coronavirus mass hysteria is tormenting people.

Daily Mail:

Italian-based artificial intelligence company Expert System has been searching through tens of thousands of social media posts to track feelings towards COVID-19.

They used a range of natural language systems to capture the emotional view of different English language social media posts related to the pandemic.

The team plan to publish a daily update showing the changing attitudes and emotions surrounding the spread of the virus and efforts to slow it down.

For the fourth day in a row fear has been the most dominant emotion expressed in posts, with all negative views increasing across the English-language world.

Sadness, anxiety and dissolution are the other dominant emotions being shared on social media over the past few days, according to Expert System.

The emotion tracker found that positive emotions were declining but love and excitement were still prominent in posts related to COVID-19.

More than 65,000 social media posts were studied by the team’s systems over 24 hours and they showed an increase in negative feelings from 43.7 per cent of all posts to 44 per cent.

Compared to yesterday, the percentage of neutral emotions expressed on social media is down from 32.2 per cent to 30.5 per cent.


The team found that over the past 24 hours positive emotions expressed on social media posts have decreased to 25.5 per cent from 27.8 per cent.

There are many reasons why fear is growing,’ the team wrote in their daily update.

‘The most important of which is fear of the growing number of new cases, and therefore the fear of more lives in danger.

‘The second reason concerns the ability of the healthcare system to respond.’
The lockdown and quarantine policies, the social distancing and isolation, the loss of jobs and the destruction of the economy, and the constant bombardment of news about people dying, are only a few examples of what’s likely to be contributing to people feeling this way.

People are already killing themselves because of the response to the virus, and the virus is literally just the flu!



We’re going to live to see more suicides than flu deaths.

I've just been asked to be the guardian of friends' kids, if they cark it.

I've really got to clean my act up.

I have to admit that my wife, stronk as she is, admitted yesterday to be a bit depressed with a touch of anxiety due to her inability to travel and visit her friends in DFW. We're out here in the middle of nowhere, but we've made a few good friends locally. She's the social butterfly in the family.
Me? IDGAF. My whole purpose for moving here was to escape the urban jungle. She's actually done quite well adapting to the new rural surroundings, as she was raised on a working farm in rural southern Illinois. She's a country girl at heart.

Frankly, we're both happy about being in a very limited exposure area, but she does miss her frenz.

Suck it up, woman lol. This shit will be over soon enough. In my county, there is ONE confirmed case, and it's rumored to be the mayor of the county seat city. There are TWO cases total in my county and the 2 adjacent counties.

In other news, my house is finally dried in, with only some trim and the porch soffits left to be covered with metal on the outside. Rain is pretty much a non-factor at this point, finally. The builder says we should be able to move in by June.
