If it's in US, we won't know . . . still very little testing!

There's over 4000 confirmed cases in 49 states. It's definitely here and certainly should be a concern but it's not time for a full on panic yet. They're taking the proper measures I believe in the limitations they've made in my state when it comes to big get togethers. It's gonna be different for a while but we'll get back to some normalcy soon enough.

I think people are overreacting over here actually. At least it doesn't make total sense why everything's shutting down indefinitely for this one, but Swine Flu and Bird Flu and Sars and Ebola and ever other major health scare of the past 20 years didn't have half this effect. But oh well, people overreacting is probably what will keep the US from winding up like China in this mess...

Probably me due to the high congestion of people. Mainland Asia tourists are gone and schools aren’t in session but trains are still crowded enough. Not packed like before but enough to where there’s a line on the platforms and I usually can’t get a seat. Also, I notice too many gross pricks who don’t wash their hands after using the restroom. They either just get them wet and f**k off right away or don’t even bother at all. Oh, open mouth coughing seems to be a hobby for many

EP, how are you doing in these shutdowns?  Did you have to come home from school ? (sorry,I should know, I have been busy with stuff . . .).  :codger:  We used to live for spring break in college. It must stink to have it turn into this shutdown.  My sister lives in Florida and a lot of beaches are even shut down with the National Guard helping.  The governor of PA shut down a ton of stuff starting tomorrow and they just did a huge news story about the lines out the door at the state store and beer distributors!  Will you be having distance learning for this semester?

I think  a lot of what the reaction is about is the "flattening the curve" thing.  I guess if there were no closures  C-19 would have to potential to spread really quickly.  The US hospital system runs close to capacity at any given time and doesn't have enough ICU units or even ventilators if every region/state would get sick all at once like happened in the Seattle area.  If the health system can gain a little time to figure out best responses and have it spread more slowly it is not such an overload for hospitals is what they are saying here.

That doesn't explain the overreaction about the groceries and toilet paper though!  That's so weird.  I hope you get to have some kind of spring break, maybe extra listening?

China has handled this much better than the US has. We're just starting to do the things they did early on because our government initially said it was no big deal.

Social media is bigger than ever today. Everyone can go on Twitter now and flip out about what's going on. Making it sound like a much bigger deal than it might actually be. But at the same time it's also a good thing people are doing that since it helps the world to be updated constantly about the spread of the disease. Is the US taking it to the extreme with all the restrictions right now? Maybe. But it's short term measures to ensure long term safety.

I thought I had the virus back on February 9th.  But I don't.  I am still getting over a Super Flu.  SUCKS.

My immunity system is compromised.  If I get the Coronavirus I could die.

Pat!!!

I thought you knew me better than that!
I’m in great shape.

When was the last time you tested your BMI?
I walk many miles a day
Lift weights at home
Play drums
Drumming is the best workout

I weight 187
I’m 6 foot 2 inches.
My BMI is between 150-195.

I’m fine.

Fast food and drinking soda is the Devil’s Work.

Don’t touch it Pat.

Do you?????

Only like 15-20% of the people who get it have severe symptoms that need hospitalization, intubation, etc.

There aren't enough hospital and ICU beds in the US to handle this thing.

Pretty soon, in the US, it will be like Italy and the UK where hospital staff will have to triage who lives and dies. So that those with a better chance get care.

The other 80% that get it?  This disease is a m*********** - it can damage the lungs, kidneys, liver - long term. Even possibility of long term cognitive problems.  We don't know yet how bad it will be,

Overreacting is putting it mildly...

That's the mindset that will get people killed.   The time to react is a month ago. We should have been hunkering down then. If we all did, then this thing would have had a fair chance of dying out by now.  Instead we are at least one order of magnitude worse off (amount of spread) than we were.  It will keep spreading unchecked unless we limit humans contact with each other.

I cannot conceive of people's inability to understand these simple concepts.

Let's come back to this post in a month.  We'll see who's right.

2 days ago Italy was registering 1 death every 4 minutes from COVID19. Stop and think about that peeps. That's not hype.


The thing is about to hit critical mass in the US. See you in a month. I hope.

We can discuss numbers and exponential growth then.
