    This is why keeping our elders as safe as possible is key to our outcome. I really am hoping to see a decline I can trust and Italy is a model I trust. I did see an Italian doctor who stated only fifty percent of the real sufferers where over the age of sixty and had lost some in their twenties and so on.

    Does that mean age isn't the issue there when it seems to be the general belief. I did wonder if it was propaganda aimed at the younger ages who are acting somewhat in defiance.

    I wonder... young people can also have health problems that put them at risk now.

    Especially Americans. Some teens in my town and some 20 somethings already have diabetic issues and high blood pressure from eating chips and drinking sodas (and other bad habits)

    I would consider them in a high risk group.

    I hadn't considered that as a factor but it makes sense to think a poor diet, whether diabetic or not could play a hand here. Another thing I have wondered over is the Chinese doctor who was fit and well, he died pretty quick and I assume it was the amount of contact he had that overwhelmed him. From that point onwards my doubts were in stone over the obvious age related issue. To a point some thought he was bumped off for addressing the globe.

    Stay safe Tex.

    Spain's coronavirus cases leap by 5,000 in 24 hours

    Spain saw a huge leap of almost 5,000 infections in the past 24 hours, placing it in third place in the global ranking of infections behind China and Italy. Health authorities said on Saturday that the number of people who have tested positive for the pathogen reached 24,926, up from 19,980 the day before. The death rate soared to 1,326, up from 1,002 on Friday. At least 1,600 patients are in intensive care, health authorities said, admitting that these units are working at their limits. Madrid is the region with the highest number of infections, with at last 9,000 people testing positive.

    FDA authorizes first rapid 'point-of-care' test which takes 45 minutes as US coronavirus cases top 20,000 - after 3,000 more were infected in just 12 hours - and the death toll hits 280

    [​IMG]

    California-based company Cepheid has developed a new coronavirus test which can deliver results in 45 minutes without leaving the site where a patient is being treated. Cepheid's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. David Persing, pictured left, explains the importance of faster testing in ensuring that patients receive the correct treatment. The number of cases in the United States has spiked dramatically in recent days as the access to testing has improved with 3,000 new cases identified in the last 12 hours. Many drive-through testing units, as pictured right, have been established to keep space clear in medical centers. While the increase in cases sounds daunting, testing and identifying positive cases is an essential measure for fighting the outbreak and cutting off the spread of the virus.

    National Guard deploys 3,300 soldiers across 28 states and US Army Corps of Engineers plans to convert 10,000 hotel and dorm rooms to hospital beds in NYC as military expands their role in coronavirus outbreak

    [​IMG]

    The head of the US National Guard said on Thursday that he expected that tens of thousands National Guard troops could eventually be involved in efforts to help deal with the fast-moving coronavirus in the United States, but he did not see a need to federalize them. All 50 states have declared an emergency, which is a critical step before governors deploy the National Guard. As of Friday, 3,300 National Guard troops have been called up in some capacity across 28 states. Puerto Rico is so far the first and only US territory that has activated the National Guard. Guardsmen and women will assist in sample collection, supporting medical testing facilities, disinfecting and cleaning common public spaces, transportation, and administrative duties.

    Gov. Cuomo has been speaking well these past several days. He said several times on today's update that the number of reported cases will increase because the number of tests is increasing.

    I've also heard rumors about processing the test - the need for a reagent - that's delayed for lack of resources. I tdidn't think much about that but then read about the family in NJ that lost four people and they spoke of test results taking days. I think that at a certain point the results might've been moot.

    That doesn't make sense: if they wanted to cripple the world economy (which will impact them just as severely as everyone else) then why would they create a virus and then release it in their own country, instead of another country like the US?

    There are no "winners" in a global pandemic scenario. China's economy is going to take a huge beating - not just in the short term, but also in the long term. The entire world is going to hold a grudge against them over this for at least a generation - and that's entirely justified because their wet markets started an epidemic 18 years ago and they still didn't regulate them properly in order to protect themselves and the world from this plague.

    Social worker, 39, who was 'in good health' is found dead by her boyfriend while awaiting coronavirus results

    • Natasha Ott, 39, died inside her New Orleans home Friday, five days after taking a test for COVID-19
    • Ott first came down with mild cold symptoms on March 10, but turned down an available coronavirus test at her place of work, believing she was low-risk
    • Ott's symptoms worsened over the coming days, and she went on to take Covid-19 test after feeling feverish and fatigued
    • Ott texted her boyfriend last Friday, saying she felt 'a little better and hopeful'
    • She was found dead later that evening on her kitchen floor; her coronavirus test results are still pending.

    Coronavirus frontline NHS doctor reveals patients are dying in agony amid panic in the eyes of hardened medics... and this is just the start

    Here, in a chilling dispatch from the front line, one doctor recounts the moment Covid-19 struck and overwhelmed a major London hospital – and how doctors and nurses watched helplessly as patients died an excruciating death...

    Have you ever seen someone gasping for their last breaths? Not many have, but for those who have experienced it, you never forget the horror. I wish I could forget all the faces of the dying I saw last week.

    The look of panic across every face, the chugging sound people make as they desperately try, and fail, to get oxygen in their lungs. It doesn't leave you.

    I have been a doctor for more than a decade. In that time, I thought I had seen everything there was to see. But nothing could have prepared me for the terror that coronavirus would unleash.

    That's the most terrifying story I've seen yet - a seemingly healthy and benevolent woman under forty cut down only ten days after the first symptoms appeared. Right here in New Orleans too. Reality is looking more like a horror movie every day.

    One thought about this social distancing is HOW GOOD it will be for our planet to have everyone reduce emissions...

    So, that little girl and should we say, her mother, are de facto mass-murderers.

    It's good that this time nobody blames gun owners.

    I can't blame a 3 yo girl, but when I realized that her dipshit redneck father had brought her into a small room - knowing that she was hacking uncontrollably nonstop, I wondered if he was intentionally infecting people everywhere he went. He actually tried to give me advice about how to properly lather up your hands with soap to protect yourself from infection, as I was racing to the door to get out of the densely infected environment that he'd just created in that room.

    There are more criminally stupid and flagrantly feckless people out there than you realize - be very careful.

    The sad part of accountability is, no matter what the catastrophe And they may be at "fault" But in the lack of understanding, It couldn't really be classified as a murder. Morally she would be innocent.

    Not to mention the causality of it, "as in the definitive cause and effect" Who can predict when a 3yo will sneeze.
    In some ways, A person could logically make the claim someone shouldn't have been in the proximity of someone that young if they are in fear of contagion, We can make children mind, We can train them and raise them. But one would almost have to be psychic as a parent to catch a sneeze in a situation like that. " Of course they could have put a mask on her" That would have eased a lot of minds.

    I don't think one could truly Blame the mother or the child honestly. Consider, Contagion is out there, one honestly takes the risk just by leaving their home in some regards.


    Psysogilically human nature works this way, If I do everything right and something bad happens, Then it's someone's Fault. The mind in times of stress, Looks for a source and the solution is generally to lay Blame, This isn't me saying any one specific person is like that, People, in general, all are.

    At one point or another, I will make a mistake, Someone will scorn me for that, My immediate reaction would be to Blam the person scorning me, Because that's how the logical progression of human psychology works, That doesn't mean I didn't do something wrong, Or mess up somehow. It simply means, No one, Ever want's to take Fault. or assume unpredictable accidents can occur, People have a need to assign blame, But almost never assume it.

    Psychology for what it is Really isn't logical at all in its function.

    This is an informative and perhaps inadvertently terrifying video about novel coronavirus infections:

    No you're not getting the picture. I went to a small fiberglass specialty shop to get respiratory protection for my mother and I (because there's usually nobody else there, and I've never seen a kid there in 25 years) - and while I was at the counter waiting for the salesman to get the respirators from the supply area in the back, a dumb redneck walked through the door behind me with his 3 yo daughter and they waited by the door, blocking the exit, as she began coughing violently nonstop for the next 8-10 minutes while my purchase was being processed. She was obviously sick, and had obviously been hacking her lungs out all day, everywhere they went - and her idiot and/or sociopath father hadn't even taught her about covering her mouth. So about every 20 seconds she would tilt her head back and violently cough in whatever direction she was facing at the time, like a fountain of disease spraying the entire shop.

    And unfortunately it was a very dry cough - the most common symptom among COVID-19 victims.
