I’ve been working in London for about a month or so. I’ve had the virus for 6-7 days now (not counting incubation). I’ve been lucky and the symptoms have been mild to the point where I have worked through them (I’m basically working on my own). I think a lot of people have it already in London. The media are emphasising a dry cough and fever but just because you don’t have those symptoms doesn’t mean you don’t have it.

I caught it off a friend who has been moderately ill. Not enough to be in hospital but suffered at home. His wife works in a local school (who’s staff pretty much all have had persistent coughs for weeks) and he has 2 children (in another school I believe). She was ill too.

We have been to and fro with ‘is it or isn’t it’ for days now but yesterday he discovered he had lost his sense of smell and taste (which is another documented side effect).

For the vast majority it will be a minor annoyance, no more. However obviously life and death for others.

I’m going to miss my eldest Son’s wedding on Saturday. That for me personally is the worst thing so far about this bloody virus.

I have a biomedical client looking to buy some n95 facemasks for hospital jump teams. If anybody has them let me know and I will send you a PM. I would need you to be United States-based because they need them immediately.

Oh dear.

Ireland had its biggest increase in confirmed cases today at 191. This is expected to keep increasing exponentially.

I’ve just watched the national news and they say the nation is no longer waiting. The expected “surge” has started. Hospitals are reporting an increase in people presenting with more serious symptoms and they’re trickling through to intensive care units.

It will be another 7-10 days before we find out if the social distancing measures introduced 7 days ago have changed the trajectory. If not then more drastic social distancing will be needed. (It seems a lot of people are still not heeding them.)

The finishing statements this evening were that you do NOT want to end up in the intensive care unit, that the armaments to fight this virus are NOT in the hospital, but are in the community and how we implement the social distancing measures.

Italy’s death toll has overtaken China’s. Are we to follow China’s trajectory or Italy’s?

Things are going to change for the worse very very fast.

So I'm not sure the status of the N95, but I understand they have KN95 masks which are almost as good.

I don't have an introduction but it shouldn't be too hard to track them down.

The Department of State advises U.S. citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19, In countries where commercial departure options remain available, U.S. citizens who live in the United States should arrange for immediate return to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period. U.S. citizens who live abroad should avoid all international travel.

That is official from the state department. Not surprising in the slightest, i’ve been saying this for probably 10 days. We have addressed that many times in our podcast.

next will be interstate travel restriction. Our state’s are like countries in Europe. It’s painfully obvious where we are going if you just watch Italy and Spain.

Be safe y’all.

Due to the situation, have been stuck (stuck?!) with my family for a while, and we had this family dinner, which was much greater than any steak in restaurant. Did some garden work and planting preparations. Never felt as accomplished as now. Seems like there is still a great connection between humans and earth and no technology could replace it.

Is it possible, that due to these virus, where people will realize the benefit of being with your family and community, while simultaneously being able to study/work online, could lead to electronic-stone age, where small communities will form, like a small tribes, less people driving around, more inside-community agriculture to produce vegetables and fruits, therefore much fulfilled life for everyone.

I almost forgot we still had stars in the sky.

Gentleman, our generation might be a witness of the radical change and an enlightenment of human civilization.

I went there yesterday because the one thing I didn't have enough of was cooking oil! All this food and no olive oil. I bought 2 spray olive oils (no regular bottles left) and a bag of cookies.
FYI - Ghee (clarified butter) is a great substitute for cooking oil. I can almost guarantee that nobody is hoarding this stuff. You'll find it in the ethnic food aisle (it's used heavily in Indian cuisine).

Bonus - your food will taste better AND be healthier than most oils if you switch to ghee.

I switched years ago and while other oils still have their place (deep frying, salad dressing, etc), I use ghee for 90% of normal everyday cooking purposes.

Coconut oil is similar but isn't nearly as flavor-neutral as ghee is.

I think and hope so.

Every time they extend the motorway out of Dublin to the commuter belt the traffic jams ease - until people further out start commuting into Dublin and the jams come back. Then they extend the motorway out a bit further and it repeats.

It's unsustainable, and means many are on the road 3 hours a day. For what? To do the work that my wife has now concluded she can easily do at home? She'll seriously begrudge her 30-60 min commutes if things go back the way they were.

I like this idea, I think it's the future anyway for individuals who are "aware", I already practice a form of this in that I only have friends who like nature/like to push themselves/etc.

Not sure if anyone has had this happen yet... But our governor (Pennsylvania) just ordered all "non life-sustaining" businesses to close. This includes:
  • Lots of manufacturing facilities
  • All residential/non-residential construction
  • Legal services, tax/accounting services, etc.
  • And much more
Going to be a lot of layoffs... Not sure if other states are doing this yet, but if they do we're going to have some problems.

Don't you think it's somewhat crazy that not everybody is like that? I mean, how could you possibly not "push hard", enjoy nature, go after big goals, while you only live once.
Hard to be humble among so many irrational people.

The problem with this test will be a false negative rate. To do the test correctly, you need to swab the back of the throat, like all the way past the dangly thing (uvula). Then you need to test the nasopharynx, imagine pushing a q-tip into your nose until you hit the very back.

how many people can do that? I can tell you in medical school doing it to other people was hard, I can’t imagine trying to swab yourself if you don’t have medical experience.

hence the concern for lots of false negatives from insufficient samples.
The Department of State advises U.S. citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19, In countries where commercial departure options remain available, U.S. citizens who live in the United States should arrange for immediate return to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period.

I found this 'good news' list on Snopes, who says the list is true:

A viral list notes numerous "good news" items related to the fight against the COVID-19 coronavirus disease pandemic.

31343
How about some good news?

– China has closed down its last coronavirus hospital. Not enough new cases to support them.

– Doctors in India have been successful in treating Coronavirus. Combination of drugs used: Lopinavir, Retonovir, Oseltamivir along with Chlorphenamine. They are going to suggest same medicine, globally.

– Researchers of the Erasmus Medical Center claim to have found an antibody against coronavirus.

– A 103-year-old Chinese grandmother has made a full recovery from COVID-19 after being treated for 6 days in Wuhan, China.

– Apple reopens all 42 china stores,

– Cleveland Clinic developed a COVID-19 test that gives results in hours, not days.

– Good news from South Korea, where the number of new cases is declining.

– Italy is hit hard, experts say, only because they have the oldest population in Europe.

– Scientists in Israel likely to announce the development of a coronavirus vaccine.

– 3 Maryland coronavirus patients fully recovered; able to return to everyday life.

– A network of Canadian scientists are making excellent progress in Covid-19 research.

– A San Diego biotech company is developing a Covid-19 vaccine in collaboration with Duke University and National University of Singapore.

– Tulsa County’s first positive COVID-19 case has recovered. This individual has had two negative tests, which is the indicator of recovery.

– All 7 patients who were getting treated for at Safdarjung hospital in New Delhi have recovered.

– Plasma from newly recovered patients from Covid -19 can treat others infected by Covid-19.

Everything about China is true.

I have personal friends there, business partners, and factories that I deal with on a monthly basis. Everyone is telling me the same thing. New cases are EXTREMELY low.

With that said, shipping costs are going to skyrocket next week for Chinese exports according to one of the factories I deal with regularly. They have too much volume right now.

Someone on here mentioned their shipping costs had skyrocketed in receiving goods from China a few weeks ago, we have a few orders that will hopefully be shipped next week, we're looking at paying double the normal cost, and by the time it comes it could be more to guarantee that they send it.

By the way, ZERO domestic cases in China as of today.

Just by basic trending, USA and Canada should be the same by end of April.

If you feel even slightly sick, STAY HOME. We should get through this faster than most people think.

Also wanted to note that the fact that Chinese workers who were out of work for 2+ months managed to get through this in tact is that their national personal savings rate is 33%, while in the US we're closer to 7% personal savings rate.

Feeling extremely grateful that I save about 50-60% of my income and personally can afford a pay cut to weather this storm.
This is a really important point that, unfortunately, I feel will not get enough air time in the U.S. Worse yet, I fear the government actions to soften this economic blow are only going to reinforce the lack of responsibility most U.S. citizens have with regards to personal savings and being prepared for a rainy day.

My husband and I are both working from home, but he was on a very important call earlier today, so my daughter and I took her dog for a walk behind the high school, where I had seen a small patch of bluebonnets the other day. While trying to increase our time away from home, we let her dog play in a field, and I laid in the grass and just looked up at the clouds. I haven't done that in decades. It was so peaceful.

Grocery stores and lots of places near me are offering 'senior hours' where seniors can shop and not be overwhelmed with other people. Lots of social good is being done in my community. Hope it continues after we're past this.
I just heard Publix is doing that he in NE FL.

Did they test everyone in china? If you stop testing, you get zero confirmed cases.

I'm just trying to point out that if the virus is spread by people without symptoms then this number doesn't mean much.

that’s true. I guess it was just my personality to have the validity of my arguments and analysis stand on their own without appealing to authority of outing a Dr. by my name. But you are probably right that it would help give people more confidence what I am saying.

I've heard different anecdotes from there being zero cases to total lockdown apocalypse. Someone said everyone who is sick is just dying at home due to the lockdown.

China was burning thousands of bodies a day not too long ago, seems weird to have zero new cases now.

Consider the fact that people might not want to speak out negatively against the government's efforts, or else risk being disappeared...

A few thoughts though:

1. China is lying and the virus is worse than we think = we're screwed.
2. China is telling the truth, but complete authoritarian lockdown is necessary to stop it = we're screwed.
3. China was able to mobilize and build massive hospitals to treat the infected. The US is vastly underprepared (number of hospitals, ventilators, testing, workers, etc)

I don't think so. If you feel sick, stay home. If everyone follows that, no need for an entire lockdown.

Why can't we once think positive and say "well I hope it ends soon" instead of always questioning the positive stories and facts? Notice how every headline in the media is negative? If only more people understood...

At times like this, don't add to your anxiety. Think positive for once. And I'm not talking about you specifically, I'm just saying in general.

This thread is turning out worse than the media.

Anyways good luck to everyone. I need to leave this thread, again... (I'll be back in a month or two).

I read that, and understood it was an assumption (they clearly state that), but the only way for that assumption to be changed is for it to be wrong. In other words we will only know it is wrong in hindsight. The truth is only known as a historical context.

By their very nature all predictions of the future are heavily steeped in assumptions. But assumptions are made for a reason, because with the knowledge we have today it is the most plausible conclusion. I’m not assuming all assumptions or predictions will play out, but if that is their assumption at the moment based on what we know, it is still of great concern.

If you read my past posts, I had already arrived at much the same conclusions more or less. I had said minimum quarantine would have to be 6-8 weeks, and even then I didn’t know how we bring people out of quarantine without starting another wave of infection. That’s what all the available data I see points to.

p.s. after you read it please give us your assessment since you are the expert reading this type of document, I’m curious what your view is.
Sorry it took me a while to respond. It's been a very busy day and I'm catching up with this thread again. Having studied the plan, I'm more comfortable that the U.S. government (combined federal, state, local, tribal and territorial) can get us through this...IF they follow the plan. This is a high level plan, so details on how certain things will be accomplished are not included. This plan mostly serves to explain how Federal and SLTT (State, Local, Tribal and Territorial) will align, coordinate action, responsibilities, etc. It also tells us what events will trigger recommendations to take greater actions and what those actions may be.

Unfortunately, but not at all unexpected, this plan references activities from other related plans. Without those plans it's hard to fully understand what is going on. But it does provide a good sense of high level activities planed and what will cause them to go into action.

I have two primary concerns with this plan. First and foremost, is that this plan and the other relevant/related plans will overwhelm some of the SLTT government teams. They likely don't have people well versed in these plans and will be trying to understand this planning language/process at the same time they're trying to take action. This can lead to situations where it seems one group, say a state, seems to be getting more attention and special treatment because they've been able to crack the planning nut. Second, and I apologize that this will sound political, is the reporting that Jared Kushner is running a shadow COVID task force. IF this is true, there is great potential for confusion at a minimum and complete failure as worse case. There can only be ONE task force with one chain of command. This plan makes it very clear who is in charge, who reports to who, levels of relationships, etc. Again, I don't mean to sound political, I'm just pointing out a disconnect between this plan and what we're hearing in the news.

A word on assumptions in these plans. The task force will have established what, in the military, we called a battle rhythm, a cycle of acting, assessing and adjusting as this crisis unfolds. At some regular interval, the assumptions will be re-vetted. Updating assumptions, especially with facts, can have significant impacts to the plan. The major elements of the plan such as desired end states will not likely change, but actions and triggers along the way may.

Don't you think it's somewhat crazy that not everybody is like that? I mean, how could you possibly not "push hard", enjoy nature, go after big goals, while you only live once.
Hard to be humble among so many irrational people.
I personally do think it is crazy, especially when you truly study the lives of people who are following the "American script" you find a trail of broken homes, addictions, dysfunction, consumerism and frankly a lot of pain hidden underneath the social media/social facade the everyday American person puts on. A lot of anxiety there which I don't believe is an accident as it's the major component in US advertising. I say this as I used to be one of the above, hell I even won competitions/contents for current events/politics etc. It was all bullshit for me anyway.

It is my hope that this crisis spawns a rethink of how the everyday American lives their life.
