    If you want to quote what the president or anyone in his administrations who give information on what they are doing to contain the virus that is absolutely fine.
    THIS IS ME BEGGING NOW. NO MATTER HOW FRUSTRATED YOUR FEEL, HOW GRATEFUL YOU FEEL OR HOW YOU FEEL WITH ANY OF THE COMMENTS COMING FROM THE WHITEHOUSE OR THEIR ADMINISTRATION DO NOT PUT IT ON THIS THREAD. DO NOT PUT TOGETHER A POST THAT IS OBVIOUSLY A POLITICAL STATEMENT AND THEN TRY AND SAY IT IS NOT.

    Hey Everyone,

    We are putting together a forum for the virus. If you have any ideas for the categories to be included in the forum please send me a private message. Here is what I am thinking so far:
    Each state will have its own thread. We will ask everyone to put in information about their state.
    A general discussion where this thread and the past threads will be located.
    A media thread of course.
    Debunking all the kooky crap out there discussion.
    Daily count of how many cases are being reported and how many deaths. We would have other countries included. This would be a no discussion thread too.
    I have a few more ideas but I am open to anything.
    Thanks.
    Tricia

    Let me clear something up. We will all be together on this thread discussing just like we are now. The other categories will be added so you all can access certain pieces of info more quickly.

    MOD NOTE
    A few things to help keep this vital discussion open and safe:

    • This forum is NOT for debate. It is for the sharing of information and feelings. If someone’s feelings are not in line with yours, DO NOT DEBATE. It is not productive and it negates the purpose of the discussion here. STOP before you reply in anger to someone who posted something you do not agree with or like. REPORT it instead and Mods will determine how to handle it or whether it can stay. DO NOT DEBATE.
    • Discussing personal FB posts of ANY kind, yours included, is a violation of TOS. Apparently Facebook has had a technical glitch and numerous posts by many folks were deleted in error. THAT IS NOT FOR DISCUSSION ON THIS BOARD, and those posts talking about it will be deleted.
    • ANY of the above CAN be discussed in Private Messages. That is where these subjects belong.
    This is an extremely difficult and challenging time for all of us. It is not uncommon for fear to manifest itself in anger. We can try our best to direct our fear and anger in ways that do not hurt others, but will still allow for venting anger because that is normal and healthy. We just need to try to keep the anger off the boards so that we can all manage our fear at such a time as this.

    Oklahoma saw its biggest jump yet in the number of people infected on Wednesday while the number of deaths in the state doubled and the first confirmed infection of COVID-19 was reported at Tinker Air Force Base.

    The Oklahoma State Department of Health reported that six people have now died from complications due to being infected by COVID-19, an increase of three from the day before. The Health Department also reported that 164 people have now tested positive for COVID-19, a jump of 56 people from the day before.

    The state Health Department said both deaths were men and Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt said on Twitter that one victim was in his early 40s. The Oklahoma State Department of Health said the other was in his 70s.

    Statewide, four of the deaths have been men. All but one of the six deaths was over 50 years old.

    As COVID-19 continues to spread, the Big Sisters Big Brothers have to find more creative ways to meet up by using FaceTime and other apps. Some mentors are also using phone calls and even exchanging letters.

    "It’s tough because as she said, we spend a lot of time together in person, but it’s kind of hard not seeing each other," said Rayna Hill, who is the little sister.

    "I just hope that she knows that she's always loved and that she has an immense amount of potential. She can go so far in life as long as she works hard," said Meyer.

    New York coronavirus: At least 13 patients have died over 24 hours at Elmhurst Hospital - CNN
    Updated 5:36 AM ET, Thu March 26, 2020

    New York has more than 30,000 of the nation's more than 65,000 coronavirus cases, and 285 of its residents have died from the virus. The state has called for tens of thousands more ventilators, hospital beds and intensive care beds to meet the needs of their hospitals.

    Elmhurst is at the center of the crisis, the statement said, and staff is working to overcome the overwhelming numbers.
    "The frontline staff are going above and beyond in this crisis, and we continue surging supplies and personnel to this critical facility to keep pace with the crisis," the statement said.
    "We are literally increasing the effective capacity of the hospital on a daily basis by sending more doctors, nurses, ventilators and PPE to meet demand."”

    Michigan Hospitals Jammed as Coronavirus Cases, Deaths Rise
    Michigan hospitals are bracing for a surge of coronavirus cases as infections rise to at least 2,294.
    March 26, 2020

    https://www.usnews.com/news/best-st...lice-captain-dies-from-covid-19-complications

    “VICTIMS:

    Just last week, Detroit police Capt. Jonathan Parnell was talking to reporters about a death at a school pool. On Wednesday, the police chief announced that Parnell had become the second member of the department to die of COVID-19.

    Chief James Craig said 331 officers and 70 civilian police employees have been quarantined since the outbreak. Detroit residents make up 30% of Michigan's coronavirus cases.

    "We anticipate we're going to lose a lot more of our citizens," Mayor Mike Duggan said.”

    LIVE: Police in North Yorkshire to set up random checkpoints to limit drivers' movements

    LIVE: Police in North Yorkshire to set up random checkpoints to limit drivers' movements

    North Yorkshire police are bringing in measures to stop people going outdoors

    The force will be using checkpoints in the region to ask drivers if their journey is essential.

    Assistant Chief Constable Mike Walker, said: "The new and significant restrictions announced by the Prime Minister on Monday evening spell out very clearly what each and every one of us must do to save lives. The message is clear and the warning stark. Stay at home, save lives.

    "These are the lives of the people we know and love. Our partners, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, grandparents.

    "You may never be in such a position again where your simple actions will lead directly to saving lives."

    The force also said the checkpoints would be random and unannounced.

    This orchestra is performing mini concerts every day on Facebook

    From CNN's Alicia Lee

    With the cascading glissandos of the harp and the rich sounds of the cello, classical music is known to relieve stress or even lull you to sleep. And amid the coronavirus pandemic, when anxiety has reached an all-time high, a good night's sleep is much needed.

    The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra's "Bedtime with Bach" series can help with that.

    Every night at 9 p.m., members of the orchestra post videos of themselves performing on Facebook, all from the comfort of their homes in Little Rock, Arkansas.

    Song choices range from Domenico Scarlatti's "Sonata in B minor K.27 (performed by ASO's principal harpist Alisa Coffey) to Aretha Franklin's "I Say a Little Prayer for You" (performed by ASO's conductor and violinist Geoffrey Robson).



    The short performances are a way for the orchestra members to stay connected with the community while their concerts are canceled, members said.

    "Music is alive, but it becomes more alive when you've got the audience's energy coming back at you," said Drew Irvin, ASO's co-concertmaster, who came up with the idea. "So for now, we're going to make that through Facebook."

    People are decorating their windows with hearts and messages of hope

    From CNN's Alisha Ebrahimji

    Thousands of people are practicing social distancing worldwide -- but that's not stopping neighbors from leaving messages of hope in the windows of their homes.

    It's unclear where or when the effort started, but photos of people putting rainbows, colorful heart cutouts, teddy bears and anything that resembles a sign of hope have been spreading all over social media.

    Some are participating because they want their neighbors who have been deemed "essential workers" to see some joy on their way out of their homes. Others say they decorated their windows so families taking walks and getting fresh air have a nice reminder that everyone is in this together.

    In Norfolk, Virginia, Kyle Siebels told CNN he found out about the effort through his neighborhood Facebook page. When the Siebels family went for a walk Tuesday, Kyle said he saw 30 houses participating. On Monday, Kyle's wife, Tory, cut out the hearts and went to town on their front door.

    "Our neighbors have started putting colored hearts in their windows for neighborhood kids to find on their walks while everyone is staying home," he wrote on Facebook. "We laced up our door so they wouldn't miss our circle. Pretty cool to see how many houses have participated. Nora (Kyle and Tory's daughter) definitely loves our walks."

    A record 3.3 million people filed claims for unemployment in the US last week as the Covid-19 pandemic shut down large parts of America’s economy.

    According to the labor department, the number of new jobless claims filed by individuals seeking unemployment benefits rose to 3.28m from 281,000 the previous week. The figure is the highest ever reported, beating the previous record of 695,000 claims filed the week ending 2 October 1982. Guardian

    How the Pandemic Will End

    “There are now only two groups of Americans. Group A includes everyone involved in the medical response, whether that’s treating patients, running tests, or manufacturing supplies. Group B includes everyone else, and their job is to buy Group A more time. Group B must now “flatten the curve” by physically isolating themselves from other people to cut off chains of transmission.”
