Basically the mentality here...Wuhan was closed for 2mo, they opened it for one day and then immediately close it after realizing new cases were found.
This. I had to go to the grocery store. We have big rain storms here so I figured that would thin the herd. Nope. People literally pushing past each other in the aisles. Zero concern about social distancing. I about lost it. Took me a while waiting at a safe distance outside the cereal aisle to wait for a crowd of people having a good ol time in the middle of it.If you told me 4 months ago that this would be happening to the US, I wouldn't have believed it. Actually, there are still a lot of people who are ignorant or just don't care.
Saw the Physician's Assistant (cant get to a doctor these days) and had a negative throat culture for any biological issues.👍Get well soon brotha 💪🏽
I got back from Costco this morn, and from a Canadian, they have allowed the doors to open @ 8:30am. They haven’t made the new hours public here yet. Also some info from my Costco run below, maybe this could be of use to some 🤷♂️
- Limit 1 item per household (toilet paper, paper towel, Lysol wipes, case of water).
- They have begun limiting the number of people at any given time - 200 incl. employees
- They are receiving new shipments of toilet paper daily, but are limited to 250 units per delivery, so first come first serve

This is so unlike anything we have ever dealt with both on an health level and economic level. I know there are many comparisons to the Spanish Flu, but times are so different than back then, I can't see how we can justify the comparison.Schools have been closed for a little while now, but it's too little, too late. At 73yrs old I feel pretty vulnerable, same for my wife who is younger, but has asthma as well as had chemo treatments last year, basically we stay home except for shopping when we have to, and only do outdoor activities otherwise, walk at local wildlife refuges. The local Safeway grocery has senior only shopping 7-9am twice a week now.
The school district and Washington County Public Health are working to reach out to people who had close contact with the student.www.kgw.com
Yeah, there is nothing we can do to stop it anymore, they should have locked down China as soon as this came to news. Now they are trying to slow down the spread to not overwhelm the healthcare system and buy some time for vaccine... The fact it affects entire world is just... unimaginable1. The vast majority of us will get this virus, period. You guys understand you can stay in your house for the next 3 months...and when you emerge you'll get it.
2. At what point does the economic damage outweigh a virus that will have a less than 2 percent fatality rate? Pretty soon we will all be homeless and starving. Seriously. There needs to be some balance or we literally could be in Great Depression territory with mass homelessness and hunger. Which is worse?
3. H1N1 was initially billed at a high mortality which later turned out to be less than 1 percent because many people had it that were asymptomatic
4. 80 percent plus of cases are mild or require no treatment.
5. Studies show that 20 percent and maybe more are asymptomatic.
6. The death toll in Italy shows avg age is 79.5 and 99 percent had serious underlying conditions.
What is appropriate balance between public health and complete economic destruction that could have decades long impact?
I predict this will ultimately have around 1 percent or less mortality because there are tons of people who are asymptomatic.
