    Thank You.

    I just googled and this article , a scientific review from 2005, popped up.

    It makes me feel like we could have a credible treatment in the not too distant future.

    Senator Cuomo has 10, 000 doses to test on NYC's most severe cases. That should tell us a lot.

    My neighbours are in their 80s and I've offered to help. They aren't interested and are going about their business like nothing has changed. The husband has COPD! I'm worried for them. And my best friend's parents who are in their early 90s are the same way. They still make weekly trips to the grocery store. I think a lot of seniors are in denial for one reason or another.

    Whoever says you can only test positive if you have symptoms don't know what they are talking about. There have been numerous reports of people testing positive and not having symptoms.
    For example, out of 4 NBA players testing positive, only one was reported to have symptoms, other 3 were asymptomatic. Yet they still tested positive.

    Do you have a link for the "10,000 doses in Governor Cuomo's command" information?

    I know that NYS topped 10,000 cases, announced by Gov. Cuomo today.

    A healthy young woman :( .... our government's need to be highlighting stories like this and maybe that will give the millennial's a wake up call to stay AT HOME.... everyone below 40 think they will be absolutely fine here cause we are told this virus is only severe in older people with underlying health conditions. it just doesnt seem to be the case does it?

    Not necessarily. I bet a lot of people with no symptoms just want to be tested to be sure. JMO

    Wish we had a breakdown of urban and rural testing data.
    • California
      [​IMG] California data Grade: B • Last updated: 3/21 00:00 ET • Last checked: 3/21 15:50 ET
      Positive
      Negative Pending Hospitalized Deaths Total
      1,279 11,249

      Best current data source for California.

      We report positives from the LA Times, which is aggregated from county-level data and is ahead of the official California data site. When using LA Times data for positives, we do not add deaths to the positive count: they are already included. Previously we added them in because the California state site had not been including them in the positive count. Negative numbers are inferred from Totals - Positives, taken from the latest press release. We are not reporting pending numbers until they are reported regularly, or from a dashboard. We assume 1 test=1 person.

    Well, i need to run this by you folks: we are at a condo in Fort Myers Florida- mostly old folks here like us. I look out my lanai at the pool and there are probably 10 people in the pool with 20 more sitting around together like it is normal day (before the virus): so i call the prez of our association and she basically says legally there is nothing she can do about it; they are adults and she cannot stop them- i am so mad- these are old people, at risk- and acting like it is just a regular day in our world--- my husband and i are self isolating; we go to the grocery store and that is it-- it just makes me see red. i will make sure we don't get too close to any of them should we see them walking around. foolish

    I could have never imagined in my lifetime something like this would begin! What a nightmare for everybody.
    One daughter a nurse and one a teacher both of them so worried about children home with drug addicts, mental health problem parents and no food.
    It's terrible what people are going through. So many small business owners trying to maintain with curb side business.
    We are in a terrible catastrophe.
    Watching those Spring Breakers with not caring or listening to anybody. I was so angry but then I prayed for them. 'They know not what they do'!

    Not so much in rural northeast California. Lots of folks here think our isolation makes us immune, plus they bristle at any kind of governmental rules. Fortunately the restaurants are following the takeout-only rule (and I just bought myself a $100 gift certificate from each of our two restaurants, thankful I can afford to do that. I would spend that over the next several months anyway, and this way they get the money now to help them survive). Also glad that our county administrator and my boss (county librarian) are taking it seriously.

    Two weeks ago I saw a prediction that with exponential growth we would expect to hit 300k on March 26. This is one curve it's not good to be ahead of...

    The pools were closed in my central FL retirement community. Peeps in charge set a 10-person limit, but no one paid any attention. Now the pools are locked down.

    The Prime Minister's family is self-isolating, per protocol. Public Health Ontario (where the Prime Minister lives):

    "PHO Laboratory will accept specimens for COVID-19 testing from individuals meeting criteria for testing as outlined by the Ministry of Health.

    PHO is not currently recommending routine testing of asymptomatic persons for COVID-19. If the clinician would like to further discuss the role for testing, the PHO Microbiologists on-call are available and can be contacted through the PHO"​

    Depending on your local government rules and orders, can you call the cops on them? It is reckless behavior at the least.
