Curly's Grandson did a PSA with tips on dealing with the Coronavirus.
Washington Governor Inslee: "Someone asked the other day, 'what's the penalty for a young person going out to a restaurant, or hanging in a social get-together?' And it's true the penalty is that you might kill your grandparent"

THIS IS SO WRONG... “US’s 2nd largest city health system has told its staff that it is essentially abandoning hope of containing #COVID19 and instructed doctors *NOT* to test symptomatic patients if a positive result won’t change treatment.” L.A. County gives up on containing coronavirus, tells doctors to skip testing of some patients

Situation Reports – TDEM
From the latest Situation Report 20-0003 COVID-19 2020 SITREP 1 032020.pdf03/20/2020 16:53:20:
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued an alert for a malicious fake online coronavirus map. A malicious website pretending to be the live map for Coronavirus COVID-19 Global Cases by Johns Hopkins University is circulating on the internet waiting for unaware internet users to visit the website. Visiting the website (corona-virus-map.com) infects
the user with the AZORult Trojan, an information stealing program which can exfiltrate a variety of sensitive data. It is likely being spread via infected email attachments, malicious onlineadvertisements, and social engineering. Furthermore, anyone searching the internet for a Coronavirus map could unwittingly navigate to this malicious website.
Containment is where each case of the virus can be traced and all people who have come into contact with the infected person are self-isolating.
I would TOTALLY get out of your way! It's only politeness right now. People will indeed think you are sick, because there are still debates about wearing a mask, otherwise (I understand the impulse though). People are not just careless, they are also heartless.
I hope you don't have to go again soon.
I hear you! My youngest child, now 22, is essentially forced to be vegan due to food allergies. She ate meat up until a few years ago but she just can't anymore. One of my friends is a health nut and keeps telling me she needs to eat this, eat that. I just roll my eyes. For the love of pete, the child eats the healthiest diet one could choose. She's 5' 10" tall and about 125 lbs.
So to make this response topic related - pet stores that sell fresh food for dogs are considered essential businesses per our state (FL). Shop small, shop local - but only if it's safe to do so.
If online teaching is not considered instructional time, why would anyone bother to complete teaching the curriculum?
We compiled data from three different studies of the case fatality rate by age in #COVID19 patients from China, The Epidemiological Characteristics of an Outbreak of 2019 Novel Coronavirus Diseases (COVID-19) — China, 2020 Italy, Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Italy and the U.S. Severe Outcomes Among Patients with Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19 and assembled the data into graphs to compare across the different regions Scott Gottlieb, MD on Twitter
The U.S. results are based on a limited data set published by the CDC of the early experience. The results are influenced by a limited amount of testing of mild cases and a tragic and early concentration of cases in a nursing facility where there were a high number of fatalities.

We are packed in like sardines. I currently can see into at least 12 apartments from where I am typing. I am living in the movie Rear Window 24/7.
if not such a dire situation, it would be, imo.
You’re feeling bad?

National shutdown looming?
Breaking: Trump eyes two-week quarantine, only drug and grocery stores open
"President Trump, moving with haste to slow the spread of the coronavirus, is preparing a plan to mobilize the National Guard to help enforce a two-week quarantine of the public if his tough-love efforts so far fail.
The unprecedented action would require everyone to “stay at home,” according to a source knowledgeable of the evolving plan."
And....if you expect an inheritance, you might wanna keep ‘em around til the markets recover.
SCOOP: Emergency hospitals in L.A. County have fewer than 200 ICU beds available for #Covid19 patients. Health officials are scrambling to add more capacity and urging distancing rules to limit strain the medical system.
My latest, with @irisslee: ICU beds already near capacity with non-coronavirus patients at L.A. County hospitals Matt Stiles on Twitter

You're preaching to the choir with me, that's for sure. But it wouldn't surprise me. There are so many different strands to this problem (and while the current administration is remiss - in ways never thought possible - the underlying issues are longterm). The US thinks that because it is "wealthy" and everyone can have go-karts or jet skis or skidoos or whatever (or lots of shoes), that we also have good infrastructure and healthcare.
We don't. We squander our national wealth and now we will have to reconsider our preferences. It's very sad that it's now down to "jobs" vs "public health." This is not going to end well for us, and I do hope we can learn from it.
I would go nuts. You would prob go nuts here, lol.
Fresh air & privacy, two things I love.
