Oh dear! I wasn’t aware that there was a positive quite so close - I am only 30 miles away up the A1 and I am 80 years old.
Here is a fabulous, in terms of the breadth of topics covered (containment, mitigation, epidemiology, etc.) and a “just the facts, Ma’am”, measured presentation, update. I will be tuning in often for updates from this site/resource:
If you want to get past the headlines and hysteria, I highly recommend these reports from JAMA.
For example, see the approximate 17 minute mark for a rational discussion about current observations on the “Risk Group”, mortality and the importance of age and “co-morbidity”.
My father got H1N1 when he was about 70. Had a 106 degree fever. He’s still going at 82. He lives nearby.
Last Friday my son’s employer had a “Coronavirus preparedness day”, making sure that they can work from home, how effective it is, etc. He does a lot of his work on Solidworks, same software PS Audio use. Not ideal and there were a few server glitches, but generally went OK.
This is going to have an impact on the dental industry everywhere. Many may be cancelling their routine check-up’s until the dust settles.
@stevensegal, I have sprayed your post with a home-made sanitiser made from isopropyl alcohol with a dash of almond oil, so we should all be safe. The screen was overdue for cleaning anyway
We’re tracking this clinically using this Johns Hopkins University web app
Who is “we?”
I work at a hospital.
Did you guys notice the crowds at the basketball games this weekend? Both college and pro games I saw were packed! Didn’t look like they were too worried about the bug.
Good. I plan on going to the White Sox opening day and game 2 on the southside…coming up.
That Johns Hopkins site is a good one. We use it at the college I work at (all on-campus classes shut down). I’m in Seattle, the US “Epicenter” and I went out for a short
drive today. People were out, but it is DEFINITELY less congested here. Most public events are closing here in W. Washington. It’s a serious concern.
Got it. Makes sense.
My regular quarterly supply of green coffee beans was delivered last week, so I am OK there. I have checked up how we would handle a fortnight of self isolation. OK for just about everything except milk, fruit and fresh vegetables. Those would only last a week. We have a freezer full of meat, fish and exotica, about 60 cans of goods including a wide range of pulses, enough wine and spirits to last many times the distance, Alternatively, being in London, we could just get anything delivered. It would all be fun except that, being old, the chances of needing hospitalization are not negligible. We do have a funeral parlor directly across the road for the worst case scenario.
