Yeah, the way they've described this is pretty ignorant.
They extended it out to July 30 awhile ago.
I have a bored toddler at home. Any suggestions of free or cheap preschool online learning sites we can try out?
Cool...I'm not expecting to be able to get back in time even now...there's some very dire things looming from this that make me wonder if I'll get back under my typical 'normal' conditions ever again.
First death in Iowa...
Is a plumber an essential service?
'Well I thought people recovered from this'.
Wonder if they'll start paying attention now.
Probably too late.
What about sprinklerfitters?
That's sad news.
There will be more.
My neighbor, who works administration for a hospital group in Iowa, said the Iowa hospitals are currently running at less than 50% occupancy. He said NYC usually runs mid 80’s in regular times. He thinks the whole thing is blown out of proportion. With that said, I trust his opinion about the same as most of the people in here.
Having lived in NYC and Chicago, I told my family in Iowa they are in a much safer place than most.
ICU bed count per capita at risk is good. The inherent social distancing really keeps the denominator down compared to larger urban areas.
1- iowa is early on in this
2- hospitals may see a dip in use before the wave hits as people stop going for less pressing matters but the wave for covid19 hasnt hit yet.
Agreed on both counts. We're just getting started and if people start letting up now, we're all screwed.
I'd like to hear what he has to say in two more weeks. I hope it's the same, but I don't believe it will be.
I hope this is the case. But to be clear, we still have to make an effort to stop the spread.
#2 is most definitely true. People staying tf away from hospitals.
Another model of how social distancing saves lives:
Even though the model represents the same number of people being infected, the first example burns itself out in about 60 days with a huge number dead. The second model takes 90 days to slow the spread and almost 6 months to burn it out. Another key difference is that virtually everyone who needs a hospital bed is able to get one in the second scenario (although presumably some of those die as well.)
In other words, we're about 18 days into a 90 day ride.
They extended it a couple months to redeem the box tabs.
The problem with these people is social distancing will be a self fulfilling prophecy.
If we do things right, and keep the numbers down, these people will say See! This was never a problem! The media just blew it out of proportion!
