    You survive nature by understanding it...not by prepping
    That’s a load off my mind. I never approach wild animals. Should be safe from the Coronavirus.

    It’s alright. It’s pretty clear that you don’t and won’t. Eventually it will. As it will for all of us.

    There's an interactive map in this article that will show #cases, active cases, deaths and most importantly, the #of those who have recovered from the virus.

    do not download map


    Of course everyone will draw their own conclusions. Mine is that there seems to be a significant number of recoveries. I would still like to see demographics on those who have died. I think it will be very telling.

    Someone was wanting Johns Hopkins info. Here you go:

    A few things from Dr. Amesh Adalja at JH. It's more infectious and deadlier than flu. In the next 12-18 months around 600-990,000 dead and half the country infected. He uses a fairly low (in comparison to others) mortality rate of 0.6% for his predictions.

    He didn't really talk about it, but that would completely overwhelm our hospitals.

    Until I found out that the map I was looking at was possibly malware, .... my interpretation was that spread and new infections were plateauing/slowing and recoveries were increasing...

    Form your own opinions. I'm not about to worry about some guy predicting a disease that we only have less than a two month history on.

    Well, there's no dispute the situation is changing daily in the US and for the worse. There are some crucial things we could be doing better. And IMO, that includes suspending travel from ALL foreign countries. Why the heck exempt UK, when people can just fly there and out to the US.

    Second graph is encouraging.

    They just closed most of the schools here and eliminated all assemblies over 250 people around here.

    Default Why the heck not.

    HIV drugs used to treat Corona successfully. I would think in dire circumstances and in the absence of a vaccaine this makes more sense than most things.

    Being deathly ill and hearing "more testing is needed" despite some successes of the experimental treatment is idiotic. Why not let people decide for themselves along the lines of "the right to try"?

    Dr. Oz said, "If you are sick, take 80 milligrams of zinc daily, 250 milligrams of vitamin C twice daily, 250 milligrams of beta-glucan daily and take elderberry syrup or lozenges four times a day for five days ".

    Well, he is a doctor....

    I already take the Zinc (50 mg) and Vit C (1000 mg x 2 daily) as a matter of course but I know nothing about the other two.

    You folks realize this will be an every year thing. Of course, people won't lose their minds about it every year because the mass hysteria will have died down.
    True enough, my final home is still out there, but this is most certainly my home range and I love it. I love every rock I fall off and tree I trip over. Even when I am close to dying from exhaustion, a beautiful sunset doesn't lose it's power to refresh and inspire me and that, in itself, is enough to save me sometimes.
