You're almost safe here.

You only have to watch out for Soup. Hes the only one who goes running to the mods.

 

Be aware though, it could happen to you too, McMod is watching...

mcmod aint around here m8.  he's doing his part to save the human species by  staying isolated at home playing animal crossing on his nintendo switch, while pounding back cases of corona beer and performing his mating ritual on perfect 8/8's.    pretty soon there will be nobody else left on the planet except for a group of canadians with video games and mma sarcasm baked into their genes.

3 cases at my hospital. All three in my ICU. 

So, best medical opinion. 

Is this a real concern, or a really ****ty flu season and give it a few weeks and the worst will be over?

I mean people are laughing at it like certain posters here but have never seen anyone gasping for their life ever so that shows you the mentality of the typical moron in the world. 

 

All I know is that if you are elderly, have underlying health conditions, have any risk factors, you're "possibly" going to have a bad time with it. 

 

We've had about 50 cases come in our hospital and so far only 3 have needed to be put in the ICU, two on vents, one is pretty sick but levels are good enough to stay off of a vent and use BIPAP instead. 

 

One is in their 40's (that's not on vent), other two are 70's and late 80's. 

We "could" see 200,000 deaths from this at the worst case scenario in the US if 25 million get infected. Plus many more that will have long term lung and heart damage. 

 

My biggest concern right now is the health care workers well being. Hundreds died in Italy, not all were elderly. The problem right now is a lack of N95 masks and other proper PPE gear. I got my N95 mask on standby but we have to reuse them, same with gowns and face shields. 

 

We are going to have dedicated groups of providers from dietary to techs to nurses to doctors JUST for those patients every shift to try and prevent cross contamination. 

 

We are lucky to have the medic care we have or else we could be looking at millions dead if we had chit healthcare like Italy and their 10% mortality rate. 

 

Still the government dropped the ball. Everyone knew this was happening in the world and they left us to rot. 

I hope once this is all over with healthcare workers sue their respective state government and hospitals for lack of being prepared. 

 

We signed up for this and work around deadly infections every day but this is on another level and we were thrown to the slaughter. Same as if you send a soldier to war without their no ammunition. 

 

All of them are to blame. From Trump to De Blasio to Cuomo.

Pretty much what I was thinking, but you never know.

My ex sister in law and her husband are doctors and dealing with it, then I've talked to their friend who is a surgeon. I dont see it as a joke, but sure not end of times that some people have.

 

The response up here I think has been ok, probably could have been better, but  we can see a slow to the curve.

New york, those deaths this weekend can squarely be blamed on Trump,  de blasio and Cuomo.  All of them playing politics and blowing it off cost days, and those days now are costing hundreds of lives.

 

Dip**** conservatives up here are trying to one up our sock puppet Prime Minister. Canada sent a **** load of supplies to China to help them out, now our opposition leader is throwing a fit saying we should never have done that. Apparently trying to stop it there was a bad idea, it's much better to let it spread and then have some extra masks while we deal with it....

On top of that, China has sent back more supplies just the other day. But the one up **** goes on and at the end of this, the right and the left are going to claim victory, while all they did was play politics and but us billions, or in your case trillions in debt.

mcmods hands are kept firmly on his well-sanitized nintendo controller while the chicks distance themselves 1 meter apart from each other as they lube themselves with hand sanitizer, spray themselves in lysol, and wait their turn in line for the great savior mcmod to raw dog them from behind while he plays animal crossing

its going to save our species.  canada doing our part saving the world, one pandemic at a time. 

im loving it though as i can finally take the time to share the real news that matters, stuff related to the greatest fighter in all of combat sports - Georges "Rush" St. Pierre, and i wont have to worry about my thread getting merged because the chicks are lining up and fighting for mcmod like he was the last roll of toilet paper. I can finally become the free-range poster that i've always wanted to be. i just gotta take things one headline at a time.

Man hes gonna get REKT 

No he wont. He has the toilet lickers undying support, and the Democrats best solution is a full blown socialist looking to bankrupt the country, or a career politician who is literally showing advanced dementia with every day getting worse.

 

The US is ****ed no matter which way they go.

Bernie will bankrupt them

Trump will have 200 million infected, but not to worry, his golf course will be open, with government funds of course,

Then Biden will be too busy being a professor he seemingly became overnight. While he is doing that, his VP is going to have her period and bring  everything down.

Not quoting this to score any points, as the maths was completely valid at the time; I think this shows though that in some countries they have already started to flatten off a little bit.  As of today there are 708,000 cases, and 33,529 deaths.  So that implies the rate has slowed down a bit since this was posted a week ago.

Just looked at a couple of the big hitters - Italy had just under 6k new cases one week ago, and had virtually identical number of cases today.  I make it about 3 weeks since they went into some kind of lockdown, so they might see a decrease in the daily numbers during the next week or so.

Spain also shows some tentative signs of slowing down, although they locked down a week later than Italy.  Germany and France will be hot on their heels i think. UK a further week or two behind.  Looks like you guys are another week or so behind, but in the absence of the same measures I suspect you have further to go before it flattens off.

Stay safe fellas.

My brother showed me a spreadsheet of cases & growth rates from previous days last night for NYC showing since the last 8 days of isolation measures in NYC the growth r8 is slowing down there. 

49714542636_1d67747e89_b.jpg

Growth is slowing somewhat in some places very likely attributed to isolation measures but keep in mind many are asymptomatic, not been tested & in other areas they are just really starting their curve. When we see a consistent negative growth r8 in whatever particular area then we'll know it's on the down curve. This is key but to relax things too early in areas will kill any progress made so our leaders really need to listen to their experts & take actions accordingly. Nationally our curve is just in the upswing if you look at the dot graph on Hopkins site as noted by the distancing of each dot widening. 

Seems the best way to fight this is test, test, test, gather that data & use it to plan pro-actively to stay steps ahead & to be a little draconian with mitigation measures.

Doesnt hanta virus just travel in deer mice only?

@StompGrind, your in New Orleans are you not?

I saw something about your rat population coming out from the alleys because restaurants are closed and not leaving garbage out.

Any truth to that?

No sure Hanta on which species it effects. I just know it's transmitted from rats & usually it's from droppings or people accidentally inhaling particles from droppings. Rats are everywhere though especially in big cities. Just because you don't see them much don't mean they're not there. Look in any sewer system in any big city and these sneaky bastards got a whole under empire lol. 

Grew up in NOLA. I don't live there anymore. I live in the middle of my state in a small town now. 

No idea on the third question. 

My post about China & Hanta was mainly just a rant btw.

There's promise with those drugs. Whether people are trying to push it or not. There are risk as well and we don't know if over all safe for most or not. 

I think it should be available with consent and up to a doctor's best judgement to see if they wanna take the risk on a cases by case.

Number of daily cases went down for the first time in Germany, more or less 2 weeks after the more drastic measures, will have to wait a couple of days for the number of daily deaths to go down in a couple of days to be sure the first peak went by.

Now the question is what will be the measures to be taken to guarantee that the healthcare system keeps running without collapsing until herd immunity is guaranteed. The people in the UK might be familiar with the ICL publication and the on-off model, we'll see if something of the sorts in in plan here or maybe something else.

What gets me is China has like 90k cases in almost four months and we surpassed that in a month? 

 

Some chit just isnt adding up. Either A. Chinas lying about their cases or B. Someone set off a dirty bomb or purposely infected chit in this country. The amount of infections is astronomical in such a short time. 

 

I smell a bat... I mean a rat.
