You can say ‘you’ to me. :wink:

Mir geht es nicht schlecht, although ich nicht schlafe.
Wie geht‘s dir?

Das war ein Witz.--obwohl Chicago einst (once) die zweitgrößte (second-largest) Stadt in den USA war.

Haha, okay.
So weit so gut von zu Hause aus zu arbeiten?
Are you able to go out freely there in Chicago?

Hier haben wir Bewegungskontrolle, so limit you go out on certain time.

Jawohl. Es gibt wohl eine "Shelter-in-Place"-Verordnung, aber sie wird nicht streng enforced. Alle Parks sind geschlossen aber ich weiss nicht, ob die Polizei sie regularly patrouillieren.

Sind das dieselben Zeiten für alle oder werden sie gestaffelt (staggered)?

Vielen Dank für die Korrektur meines Satzes. :lol:
Appreciate that.

Here, Die Polizei wird das Auto auf der Straße überprüfen.
Früher eine Person in einem Auto, jetzt aber zwei,

Coronavirus case here is so far in the flat trend now.
Illinois hat 56.000 Fälle, isn’t a lot?
Achten Sie bitte darauf!

Mindestens (at least) 56.000!

Ist das viel? Es ist alles relativ. New Jersey hat mehr als doppelt so viele Fälle aber wenigere Leute.

Ich bin sehr vorsichtig. Heute bleib ich zu Hause. Es ist ein schöner Tag und es werden zu viele Leute out and about sein.

Das ist eine Menge, In meinem Land gibt es ungefähr 6.000 Fälle.
Not even 15% of Illinois.
Aber deine Bevölkerung(County) ist groß, ich weiß.

Glad that you are not impact from pandemic.
Ich schaue viele CNN-Nachrichten, Ich habe viel über Trumps "großartigen" Vorschlag gehört, das ist absurd.

At least Illinois state garbenor has policy to control the disease?
