    Well, for the very elderly, they'll likely die of one or the other, if it's their season to die. There will probably be fewer flu deaths, since they will have already died of CV-19 if exposed. By next year, the epidemiologists will have figured a lot of it out (I can just hear those medical researchers critiquing their grad students and their data already).

    Flu rates will probably be down this year, due to prior deaths and social isolation.

    As to flu shots, there are differing theories about who should take them and why. This year's wasn't as effective as in some other years. It'll be interesting to see future studies about this year's CV outbreak and whether people with flu shots did better or not (or, whether newly vaccinated people did more poorly - it's just not known yet).

    I haven't had the flu or a shot in years now. That's based on my own assessment of the shots and my health situation (and alternatives that I think work for me).

    United States Coronavirus: 386,194 Cases and 12,246 Deaths - Worldometer

    This is a link to worldometer showing the states figures. I don't know if this helps. To get to the individual states just click on the underlined USA in the left hand column in the view by country table.

    Kanawha County Judge: Test positive, refuse to self-isolate – get an ankle bracelet

    CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – If you are a resident of Kanawha County and test positive for the COVID-19 virus, but refuse to self-quarantine, you may soon find yourself wearing a GPS ankle bracelet.

    Kanawha County Circuit Court Chief Judge Charles E. King, Jr. Monday entered an order allowing the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department to use the bracelets as a last resort to enforce a quarantine on people testing positive for the virus. That quarantine order is currently issued by the county’s Chief Health Officer.

    King, in entering the order, noted that other states, such as Kentucky, have used the bracelets on those who refuse to follow the quarantine orders.

    Kanawha County Commission President Kent Carper said, “We do not want to use the GPS ankle bracelets to enforce the quarantines, however, if we must we will.”

    The order comes on the heels of West Virginia Governor Jim Justice’s executive order Saturday night to include Kanawha County to the list of enhanced restrictions as the number of confirmed cases there continues to grow and Monday’s announcement of a 4th death related to the virus.

    Also Monday in Kanawha County, residents of the Esterbrook Center were being tested after a confirmed case was found in the skilled nursing facility.

    Thanks!

    Maybe i am looking wrong, but it has only curves for resources and death. I am looking for a curve of cases, daily new cases or active cases

    The only elderly in the UAE are UAE Nationals - the length of time an expat can stay in the UAE after age 65 is limited. No resident permits - strictly short term even if it's for business.

    The elderly are far more likely to have extended family to assist them. Failing that, some government agency will know of them already and what their needs are.

    No I see that but on each line for any state if you go across to the far right column there is more data to view if you double click.

    I have been keeping a journal since it hit over here. You know the ole pen and paper way. It will be a piece of history that future family generations will have. Basically daily entry of stats. Some I have what we did that day, which wasn't much.

    Omg. I want a quarter pounder large fries and diet coke. But I do not trust the people making them. Thus I will suffer without.

    This is what i already also tried, but it leads to a page with numbers, but no curves again. Do me a favour and hit this link on the far right for Louisiana?

    Very interesting. Didn't you post an article before explaining more about the red blood cells? Can you link that previous article, and do you have the link to the nurses data you are reading? I have seen some exrays of how the lungs are damaged/fluids sooo quickly.

    You may have to.do a search for my location history on google.
    Your location history may be turned off.
    When I go to Google maps there is a little red circle on the right. I tap that and a menu comes up.
    Location history has a crooked arrow icon. Click it and scroll. You should be able to see if the history is on or off.
    Or do a search from the phone settings tab that looks like a gear for "location history"
    Hope that helps!
    MOO

    I am sorry, Margarita. I worry about the same. Especially family members that are out on the front line. Bless your paramedic family!

    That’s how I feel about pizza delivery and pretty much every restaurant delivery. I’m opting for grocery delivery and cooking the stuff myself over food delivery but that is moo.

    But as @jjenny said though, if you trash the containers and then nuke it, you should be okay...you know, @Herat, just like handling a package, grab the tongs, honk the horn, all that stuff. :D (Someone pkeeease hump that post, it was sooo funny I was crying I was laughing so hard! We all were! I need a good laugh!!

    Grocery delivery isn’t a walk in the park either let me tell ya. Oh the process!! Oh the time and work!! I let it sit if I can at the doorway for days, or if not then with gloves transfer each item over a bucket of bleach water where if sealed like a can it goes in there, if not it gets wiped well with bleach bath. If it’s a pantry item it will then stay at the doorway for a few days even after wipes down. Then it goes into another container where I take it to the sink, and with new gloves wash it with soap and water. Then I transfer the item out of the package if possible (not cans). Here’s the deal. Every time I open the fridge and touch an original container, say sour cream, I’m worried and have to wash my hands and it’s soooo much handwashing I’m finding it much better just to put the stuff in my own ziplocks and containers moo. This is for my own piece of mind because every time I open the freezer or fridge I think about how long it can live..anyway I’m going way overboard. Better safe than sorry, and better for my anxieties afterward.

    Re: restaurants vs grocery delivery, we don’t have many choices all the time. Sometimes we have to take what we get. It’s good that there is restaurant delivery. We all have to assess and handle our risk factors as we feel is appropriate and utilize whatever resources we have access to.
