While some of the world dismisses the seriousness of the coronavirus, others are beginning to get the idea.

In US 96 M worst case scenario will be infected in US 500,000 deaths. (We have 320 Million people in the US so almost one third of our entire population could be infected.

https://www.businessinsider.com/presentation-how-hospitals-are-preparing-fo r-us-coronavirus-outbreak-2020-3

https://www.independent.co.uk/topic/american-hospital-association
A doctor has advised hospitals to prepare for up 96 million coronavirus infections and 500,000 potential deaths as a worst-case scenario for the potential extent of the outbreak, leaked documents reveal.
The documents, obtained by Business Insider, come from a presentation made during a webinar hosted by the American Hospital Association (AHA).

Dr James Lawler, a professor at the University of Nebraska Medical Centre, shared a series of slides with attendees about what his "best guess" was when estimating how the outbreak could impact hospitals and health officials. His webinar, titled "What healthcare leaders need to know: Preparing for the COVID-19", was presented on 26 February. He estimated 96 million could become infected, and of those people 480,000 could die from the coronavirus based on how the virus might spread.

Comments: Lawler was a member of the Homeland Security Council for George W Bush and member of National Security Council under Barak Obama’s administration. Well even if 96 Million get infected, if only half a million die, that's still pretty good odds right? [that's for the glass is half full folks].

Up to 40 percent of Tehran’s population could be infected with the coronavirus within the coming two weeks, according to an infectious disease specialist and member of Iran’s national influenza committee.
Iran reported on Thursday 15 new deaths from the virus and 591 fresh cases in the past 24 hours, bringing the death toll to 107 dead and 3,513 cases of infection.

The Iranian capital has a population of more than nine million.

Placing everyone who comes to Israel in quarantine for 14 days.
Netanyahu announced the 14-day quarantine on Monday after consultations with Cabinet ministers and senior health officials. “After a day of difficult discussions, we have taken a decision. All those coming to Israel from abroad will be placed in isolation for 14 days,” Netanyahu said in a video broadcast on his Twitter account. “This is a difficult decision, but it’s necessary to protect public health. Public health comes before everything else,” he said.


REMARKS: Now why don't we do that? Oh too many travelers, too much profiling, logistics. That's why we will end up effed.

Just go about living your lives and hope your number isn't up that day, whaddaya gonna do worry about drowing in a blown up subway tunnel, odds are you won't.

NYC Physicians Assistant attended a conference in Times Square before becoming ill. How many people were in contact with her or whoever brought the virus there infecting others?

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8091611/Physicians-assistant-teste d-positive-coronavirus-warns-threat-serious.html

A physician's assistant who became New Jersey's first case of coronavirus has spoken out about the disease from his hospital bed and warns others to take the threat seriously.

James Cai, 32, fell ill last weekend while attending a medical conference at a hotel in Times Square.

He has been hospitalized since Tuesday at the Hackensack University Medical Center in Hackensack, New Jersey. So far, 13 people have been tested for COVID-19 in New Jersey. The other 11 cases have come back negative.

'Every day is getting worse,' Cai said Monday during an interview with CBS, adding that 'it happened so quick'.

'A lot of people say it’s OK, don’t wear masks. I don’t believe that,' Cai said.

Cai, who works and lives in Manhattan and Fort Lee, New Jersey, said the virus is not one to be taken lightly.

Meanwhile Trump says risk is low.

Firstly, there will be more cases and some people will die. Trump has pointed out that flu kills more people than this will [statistically]. People do have to calm down somewhat, just pay attention, keep up to date, gather credible info. and make good decisions. I now think he is NOT uninformed, he is taking the approach that Xi Jinping took, be calm, assess the situation and provide solutions to it. He doesn't want to start an Alex Jones tweet storm rant.

In 2008 NYC made plans in 2008 for any mass infection like Sars, Flu or anything else. The containment going on now in New Rochelle is addressing a specific area they know people were infected in. There may community quarantines that occur.

NYC Contingency plan for biological outbreaks

The plan was developed by the city's late chief medical examiner, Charles Hirsch, in 2008, in response to concerns that Bird Flu would cause the next pandemic influenza. But as Hirsch states in the report, the plan can be used to tackle "other biological outbreaks" that cause mass fatalities.

http://www.nyc.gov/html/ocme/downloads/pdf/pandemic_influenza_surge_plan.pd f


Washington State had the same number of cases as New York. They anticipate that number can go to 64,000 people infected.

IMPORTANT NEW FINDING
The range from which one person can infect others is larger than previously thought. People on a bus in China were infected from one person 14.5 feet away from them.

How One man spread coronavirus to NINE other people on his bus in China

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8094933/How-one-man-spread-coronav irus-NINE-people-bus.html
Scientists find the deadly virus can travel more than double the safe distance and linger in the air for over 30 minutes. 14.7 feet away from the infected traveler others were infected.

Trump to limit virus info., to classify some of it, hysteria will not help anyone.
https://www.yahoo.com/news/exclusive-white-house-told-federal-163043805.htm l
Attendees at the meetings included HHS Secretary Alex Azar and his chief of staff Brian Harrison, the officials said. Azar and Harrison resisted the classification of the meetings, the sources said.


And yes sadly now there are cases on Long Island.

What you can do is stay informed. Get yourself some supplies in case your community does quarantine, you will not have time to do it if this happens. Consider relocating to a region with less people if you are in or near a large city, less people means less chance of infection, or less people infected because round two will start in the fall regardless of when this season ends, now they are saying May.

Italy’s nightmare offers a chilling preview of what’s coming.


Connecticut
https://ctmirror.org/2020/03/12/connecticut-bans-large-public-events-to-slo w-covid-19/
Connecticut Chief epidemiologist said 10 to 20% population could contract coronavirus over the next month. Connecticuts population is 3.75 million people so that would be 375,300 and 714,600 infected.
But the state epidemiologist, Dr. Matthew Cartter, said he expects a rapid spread that could sicken between 10% and 20% of the state’s 3.5 million residents in the next month or two as its moves north and east from a foothold in Fairfield County, though state officials still hope Connecticut’s aggressive measures will flatten the growth curve.


OHIO
https://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/487329-ohio-health-official-estimates -100000-people-in-state-have-coronavirus
Amy Action Ohio Health Dept. says 1% of state likely infected, 117,000 could already be infected. 6 cases so far.

Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton said at a press conference alongside Gov. Mike DeWine (R) that given that the virus is spreading in the community in Ohio, she estimates at least 1 percent of the population in the state has the virus.
"We know now, just the fact of community spread, says that at least 1 percent, at the very least, 1 percent of our population is carrying this virus in Ohio today," Acton said. "We have 11.7 million people. So the math is over 100,000. So that just gives you a sense of how this virus spreads and is spreading quickly."

WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON? Some of the Chinese believe that the coronavirus is a US bioweapon that was unleashed in Wuhan in October when 300 Athletes from the U.S. Military attended the 7th Military world games in Wuhan. Some patients previously diagnosed with the flu were found to have the coronavirus.

https://qz.com/1817736/china-fuels-coronavirus-conspiracy-theory-blaming-us -army/
A conspiracy theory linking the US Army to the coronavirus now as official Chinese endorsement. China Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian says 300 athletes from the US military in October attended the 7th military World Games in Wuhan.

REMARKS: There are many countries with bioweapons. Ours are made in Fort Detrick. Why does the world need to have stockpiles of biological terror-death weapons?

Update 3-21-20 heard something very disturbing that China has crossed pigs with monkeys in genetic research. Interspecies breeding results in zoonotic diseases. This practice should be globally banned to prevent pandemics. We do not have to accuse them just put a global ban against the practice. Do it through the U.N.

They are complete and total idiots, and @sswipes to boot. Makes no difference if their pretend-university is open or not, they arem't learning anything there anyway. Then again, it is true that boxes of rocks can't catch cold or flu.

They are throwbacks, beneath contempt. Their only possible value is to teach us a lesson in "Love Thine Enemy" which I am dismayed to report I am failing.

Throw tomatoes at me if you like, but imo the wholesale across the board closures of sports seasons, events, outdoor concerts, basically everything under the sun, is an overreaction of sorts & suggestive of succumbing to a panic

even ski areas up here are closing b/c of it, altho one, Jay Peak, is located on the border, has an indoor water park, hockey rink, convention hall, concerts (ABB tribute band Peacheaters played there recently), is a popular resort w/condos, guests from everywhere etc - so I suppose they feel they have to
- oh & also the best terrain Anywhere - w/my ski vaca coming next week....

If the measures being taken prove to be effective, thank heaven - w/all the canceled events it will have come at a cost of literally billions of dollars, & hopefully minimal panic & loss of life

I fail to understand the mad rush on toilet paper in response to the virus situation - the hand sanitizers I understand but not that - no need to explain, just coronavirus stinks, this too will pass & good wknd folks

True, but most impressive has been Trump tweeting about about Obama / Biden and swine flu response. Isn't that more important, more relevant, and more current than addressing the Coronavirus pandemic? He always reverts back to competing against Obama at every possible means.

To clarify, am concerned 1st & 4most about containing the spread of this virus & ultimately curing it
I can at the same time be disappointed by the closure of the ski area w/a clear conscience - the two aren’t incongruous - am not directing frustration at anyone, just frustrated by not being able to ski in prime spring conditions at my favorite hill - there are other places, not as much fun tho

So far only 2 ski areas have closed, have to believe more will follow

Trump resisted declaring a national emergency against every world, national, state, & individual expert opinion for as long as he dared & even during that speech, he provide incorrect info, and then turned to SHAKE HANDS w/guests in the Rose Garden until one of them had enough sense & guts to say no. His refusal to be tested despite known contacts (& unknown incidents) is bizarre unless he wants his MAGAs to also refuse or is afraid if he's positive, the world will learn he's not superhuman.

We know reduced contact works to contain the virus. It's the only proven effective measure absent a vaccine & a guarantee that everyone accurately reports contact. Maybe, if we'd had tests & started testing back in early February, the need to shut down schools, pro sports, religious events, and anything that draws a crowd wouldn't be critical now, but that didn't happen. Colleges w/no control over where their students go for spring break would be seriously remiss in remaining open w/communal living & dining. Pro sports have a similar problem - no idea where spectators have been & worse, the players themselves now have the virus. Disney probably should've closed its massive parks weeks ago but didn't. There's no other course to take at this point.

Hospitals have to limit visitors & continue to monitor the health of their employees to protect their patients. I get emails every day re increasingly restrictive practices, including cancellation of all non-essential diagnostics & procedures. Why anyone would visit a nursing home where the most vulnerable populations live just seems callous to me.

Lots of us are disappointed over canceled spring vacations, uncertainty about summer plans, and even watching streamed sports events. I think we're reasonable to be pensive about personal finances.

We lost time we couldn't afford pretending the virus was a democratic hoax, a foreign problem, and a skeletal CDC & WH epidemiological staff would suffice. We're behind. The only way to catch up is to shut down for a while.

I think a lot of Boomers have a false sense of security because we're fit, exercise, & think young. True, we're not the >60 that our parents were, but we're really not 40. Evidence-based medicine cites 60 as the flash point if for no other reason than immune systems decrease w/age. Sure, there are the SuperElderly >80 & even 40 somethings w/medical conditions who are more vulnerable. Maybe there's a more palatable word - even senior sounds better than elderly - but let's not pretend precautions don't apply to us.

Things are bad here in NY metro area.

More later over the next few days to a week.

There may be at any later or sooner point lockdowns of NYC or counties, towns as numbers go up.

Statewide we have 729 cases. NYC 329. Long Island 172, Westchester 220.

There is no toilet paper or water in the stores. When they get more it is sold out in 10 minutes. Shelves for food are empty stores closing by 8 pm. Gyms closed till crisis over. Restaurants only allowed to do takeout or delivery service. Schools, libraries closed
I saw convenience stores dark at 3 pm.

Trump told CNBC 3 hours ago this could stretch into July or August. We have 19 million people in NY only 53,000 hospital beds, 3200 people already in the icu beds. The Governor, Andrew Cuomo, wants the Army Corps of Engineers to build temporary hospitals like China did. He and Trump are at odds.

Nationally 1.9 million test can be done this week.

The press conferences are held at least daily but twice a day lately and probably for the next week at least.

Just look up
Remarks by President Trump, Vice President Pence and Members of the Coronavirus Task Force Press Conference.

Links will come up also videos.
