    What a bunch of nimrods.

    I'm not a fan of government overreach at all, but I would be wholly supportive of cities, towns, etc., imposing large fines on any groups that defy any orders r/t limiting group sizes, i.e., no more than 10 people in a gathering, etc.

    Some of us responsible adults would like to get back to work sooner rather than later.
    If people would simply stay home, we'd all be okay a whole lot sooner.

    JMO.

    I just cannot imagine what this is doing for teens. We just must understand how important socialization is... was the same for all of us during those years. There will be hundreds and hundreds of studies on how this affected each generation...

    A thousand times NO. It's bad enough that government spies on people, but at least those gov. spies are background checked. Criminals, sex offenders are being released already, I don't want them to have an app on their phone to track me.

    MOO only MOO

    Okay, but I did see a handshake rebuff with the MyPillow guy (due to hygiene, not rudeness).

    Old habits do die hard. I wonder if I'll ever hug my friends again upon seeing them :(

    First child dies from the coronavirus in New York City as Gov Cuomo begs for help amid a 'staggering' number of deaths in the state

    The age of the child has not been revealed but, according to NBC, the minor did have an underlying condition, but it's unclear what that condition was.

    First child dies from the coronavirus in New York City | Daily Mail Online

    This news is incredibly sad and very tragic. My thoughts and prayers are with the child’s loved ones.

    It's national Doctors' Day. I would like you just say thank you to all of the doctors working so hard, risking their lives for us.
    A special thank to my sister. She is a pediatrician in the Detroit area. I am so proud of her.

    I have own brand oats - I think they are as good. Maybe avoid Quaker for a while? Mind you the cooking or putting boiling water on them (which is how I make my porridge) would probably make them safe anyway.

    I work for a major medical center. I couldn't agree more. I think that there needs to be a long hard look at preparedness. I know we practice and simulate pandemics.
    What happened?

    " Just in time" " Lean" inventory control has no place in a major medical center. IMHO....and MOO.

    They are amazing being on the front line of all this.

    Also all the people who work in supermarkets, care homes, funeral parlours, pharmacies, schools, petrol stations and other places serving the public, plus of course the factory workers, truckers and delivery drivers making sure we have enough of everything we need.

    The list of lower paid behind-the-scenes workers is endless. Heroes, all of them. Who knew?

    "DHHR is the official reporting agency for COVID-19, which in turn provides official case numbers to the CDC. Medical providers are required to report test results to their local health departments, which provide them to DHHR, and commercial/private labs are also required to report test results to DHHR. However, the reporting of negative and pending tests to DHHR has been inconsistent, thus causing a delay in official reporting."

    WVDHHR

    Today they didn't include a number for tests pending.

    UK coronavirus measures 'making a difference'

    Today's UK deaths rose by 180 to 1,408 so we are close to the NY figures.

    "Sir Patrick Vallance told a news conference that social distancing measures are "making a difference".

    Transmission of coronavirus in the community is thought to be decreasing, which could mean fewer infections.

    Hospital admissions data suggests cases are not rising as fast as feared.

    There are currently 9,000 people in hospitals in England with coronavirus, up from 6,000 on Friday.

    This amounts to about one in ten of all hospital beds in the country.

    The latest number of deaths announced in the UK of people with the virus has reached 1,408.

    The deaths include a further 159 people in England, six in Scotland, 14 in Wales and one in Northern Ireland.

    Sir Patrick said the NHS was seeing around an additional 1,000 patients a day and described this daily rise as "stable".

    "That shows that it's going up not in an increasing amount but in a constant amount, which may suggest that we're already beginning to see some effect," he said.

    After the daily number of deaths fell for the second day, he also cautioned against paying "too much attention" to day-to-day fluctuations in figures, explaining "we need to look over time and see what's happening"."
