That, and South Korea has water on three sides and a pretty tight border to the North.
Michigan cases increased from 119 to 336 in a day.
Expanded testing in Iowa will likely yield similar results. There are going to be a lot more than 39 confirmed cases after the next few days.
Makes you wonder how many people actually have it
They can stay there since they chose to be idiots.
And who's already had it and and and
How can you enforce this?
I know it sucked not having enough test kits but maybe there's a silver lining if the cases reported (not new infections, just testing those already showing symptoms) jump - some of these idiots that are not taking it seriously may get a jolt to their psyche.
A lot more than what the numbers show, which means the serious symptons are a lot less frequent than the current numbers show.
I think this was brought up this morning (think it was President's presser). Basically expect the cases to freaking explode, but don't freak out since it's due to more testing. They estimated about 86% of infected people currently have no idea they are infected.
I made a grocery run to Hy Vee this morning. They were still completely out of TP, paper towels, hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and hand soap but they were in OK shape on the rest. The problem now is that their grocery delivery program is hopelessly overwhelmed. I tried putting my order in last night and the next available time slot was next Wednesday. So basically I got groceries today and tonight I'll have to make an educated guess about what we'll need in a week and get the order in already if I want to avoid actually going in the store.
North Korea style:
Does anyone think we'll actually get the "shelter in place" mandate?
Yeah, everything is going to take time. Things don't just appear out of thin air and aren't instantly beamed somewhere like in Star Trek.
Which would be good news.
From there it's figuring out how long immunity lasts if you've had it, testing antibodies for past infections etc.
I tend to agree. It's harsh, but they took that risk when they left. Mandatory quarantine for two weeks would be the safe play; otherwise we're undoing any good that has been done in the last week with social distancing.
Yep. I chatted with the store manager for a bit and he figures in a month or so they'll be choking on inventory when the supply finally catches up with the drastic spike in demand. In the meantime it's been a really tough week for grocery stores. All the employees were looking pretty frazzled today. But I suppose I did, too.
Yeah I have coworkers who were hell bent on going on their spring break with their family members...my work (school) is shut down. I've been thinking about if they're really going to be that stupid about this just for personal pleasure.
No idea. Rolling out an order like that and not having a means of enforcement seems kind of pointless.
What a waste of a press conference
The way this medical director talks really bothers me.
