    Yes, it is scary here. I don't understand the way our governor is handling this crisis. I am grateful that I am able to keep my mom with me, and that we have chosen to isolate at home. So many others aren't able to go without a paycheck, and must work. My daughter is in communications, and considered essential, so she can't visit our house. She tells me that people are still out, and about in large numbers. I have many elderly neighbors that still go to the store, and choose not to remain at home.

    I know! Were they going to close down the bridges, tunnels and trains?

    I laughed when they wanted to ban travel between states.

    I don't know. But I literally cancelled my Amazon order when I saw that video. :eek:

    I had already ordered from instacart , and I peeked out my window, just in time to see my 'masked' delivery guy washing his hands with hand sanitiser before picking up my grocery bags.

    So I gave him a big tip in a plastic baggie, and another baggie with a new mask and new pair of plastic gloves. [ saw that idea posted here upthread] He LOVED the mask and gloves.

    So I transferred my Amazon order to instacart for now. :cool:

    SOUTH CAROLINA

    The quiet Kershaw County town remains South Carolina’s coronavirus hotspot, where close to one out of every 929 people have contracted the virus.
    'Stretched to the limit': How Camden handles being the frontline of SC's COVID-19 outbreak
    The Post and Courier on Twitter

    "But Sheheen also speculated that it is possible Camden is, in fact, not an outlier, and that the community had simply mobilized faster than other parts of the state to understand the extent of the problem once the initial cases were detected.
    Other areas of the state, particularly the populated counties of Richland and Charleston, have started catching up to Kershaw on the number of confirmed cases in recent days. The state’s health department has urged everyone across the state to take the same precautions regardless of the number of cases in their area.

    “It would not surprise me if rates here were similar to many other communities around the state, it’s just they haven’t had the level of awareness that we have had because we found it early,” he said."

    Not right! Particularly when they refused to close the beaches.

    Startling, scary, unconstitutional. The first thing I thought of are the WWII Germany. They just go into private property rounding up New Yorkers to throw out of Rhode Island. Seriously?

    When my guy sees me afraid, he feels helpless, and can be extra grouchy.

    Here is what I don't understand. I have seen a lot of very dire warnings here, that we in the US are not following the strict quarantine that other countries did, that helped them flatten the curves.

    And I have been reading about the very high numbers in NYC and Tri-state area, and also about the speak easy, and the partying and people not complying....etc...


    So why all of the outrage when the administration considers a formal quarantine?

    Cuomo said he considers it a war on NYC?

    I am very confused....I thought we were in a very severe crisis and falling short?

    UK


    The mortality rate for patients put in intensive care after being infected with Covid-19 is running at close to 50%, a report has revealed.

    Data from the Intensive Care National Audit and Research Centre (ICNARC) showed that of 165 patients treated in critical care in England, Wales and Northern Ireland since the end of February, 79 died, while 86 survived and were discharged. The figures were taken from an audit of 775 people who have been or are in critical care with the disease, across 285 intensive care units. The remaining 610 patients continue to receive intensive care.

    The high death rate raises questions about how effective critical care will be in saving the lives of people struck down by the disease. As a top priority, the NHS is opening field hospitals in London, Birmingham and Manchester, which will incorporate some of the biggest critical care units ever seen in Britain.

    “The truth is that quite a lot of these individuals [in critical care] are going to die anyway and there is a fear that we are just ventilating them for the sake of it, for the sake of doing something for them, even though it won’t be effective. That’s a worry,” one doctor said.

    The report also found that though the majority of those who have died from coronavirus across the UK were over 70, nine of the 79 who died in intensive care were aged between 16 and 49, as were 28 of the 86 who survived.

    The audit suggested that men are at much higher risk from the virus – seven in ten of all ICU patients were male, while 30% of men in critical care were under 60, compared to just 15% of women. Excess weight also appears to be a significant risk factor; over 70% of patients were overweight, obese or clinically obese.

    I lived in Montreal when the Canadian Prime Minister, Pierre Eliott Trudeau, invoked the War Measures Act (father of Justin Trudeau, current Prime Minister of Canada). I was a high school student, and there was martial law in the streets enforcing strict curfews. Bombs were being placed in mailboxes by the Front de Liberation du Quebec (spelling may be off), the FLQ, and a member of parliament was kidnapped and later found murdered in the trunk of a car. His name was Pierre LaPorte. He was the MP who represented our home district. Like your local congressman here in the U.S.

    I don't know a lot about how this would work in the U.S., although I just read this article that was posted above. Interesting.

    I have to say the Dr. Phil clip made me gag. I do feel sorry for the girl since she seems to have more things to worry about than this virus. She does not even have common sense. Life will be a struggle for her. No use being upset about her choices, she is beyond talking to. Hope her family can get her help. My opinions
