  1. Robert DeNiro once said when you are famous, you meet as many people in a day as normal folk meet in a year. So I makes sense to use that basketball player as a vector. Get them tested then say “if you interacted with X, quarantine yourself”.

    Also I was involved with a movie group when “Contagion” came out and they talked about how they worked with experts while.makng the movie and those experts got fi al veto power on the script. That’s who it’s super accurate

Shit like this (https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=526747611302702&id=327186414592157) which is pretty hilarious to us but might not make sense to a US audience. The humour is in knowing people like this and how they talk (“shoh you okes must have had so much fun ey”, “epic!”). It’s like SA’s modern white trash elite 😂😂😂
