First Minnesota death related to COVID-19 was reported today, 138 cases in the state.

I started a spreadsheet because the latest update did not include a chart.

We used to be 10 days behind Italy. We're catching up fast.

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/#countries

And that's with only 183,000 tests so far. Italy has conducted 206,000 tests. With an Italian population one fifth the size of ours, that would be over one million here.

https://ourworldindata.org/coronavirus-testing-source-data

At the current rate of 6,000 - 7,000 new cases a day, we will pass China before the end of the month.

And then we will be #1 in the world!


PS Actually, we are currently doubling every two days. If that doubling continues 6 times more in a row, we will hit ONE POINT SEVEN MILLION on April 2nd.

With such pathetic, amateurish testing, we will have no way of ascertaining that. To find those 1.7 million, we would have to conduct approximately 14 MILLION tests because stats are showing that there is a 7 to 1 ratio between negative and positive results.

Currently, we are conducting about 30,000 tests a day. 14 million tests at that rate would take 467 days to perform.

Also, 1 in every 17 with the virus needs hospitalization. With 1.7 million cases, some 100,000 would need hospitalization.

And that's just 1.7 million cases.

Thats one way to look at it for sure.
Another is to look at the 13,000 deaths and 7.7 billion people. Gives us a death rate of .00000168831

The daily net population growth is about a 1/4 million. This is barely going to have an impact on world population. In facts it's slowing the world growth rate by around 1% per day right now.

Everything I have read thus far seems to point that this is killing off the unhealthy with weak immune system. My guess is that in nature there is a natural cycle where viruses come around and weed out the unhealthy. This allows resources for the stronger of the species to carry on.
If this was happening to any other species on the planet we wouldn't give it the time of day. I know it sounds cold and callus but thats nature.. I'm also in the high risk category. Smoke cigs, cigars and little herb now and again. Overweight as well. If I get it I am probably checking out.
The recent numbers out of Italy are showing the elderly which are being hit hard are at about a 25% mortality rate and many of them are smokers.
At some point humans are going to have to come to terms with the fact that no matter how far we have come with technology, we are still a part of nature. As such we do need to let natural selection take place in order to strengthen the gene pool overall.
Based on that I still say stop the madness and lets get everyone back to work. Some will get sick and some will die but in the end we will have a stronger species that will become more immune to this over time.

Nope! Fudging them for what purpose? Fudging them up or down?

That's because he's joined the party and became a super socialist... when .Rep. Ilhan Omar throws him a complement it isn't because he's a Republican Conservatist.
He's flipped on ya.

Just got an email from Harbor Freight:
  • Dear Harbor Freight Community,
    As we’ve been following the news over the last few days, we’ve heard about the severe shortage of protective gear for hospitals, healthcare workers and first responders as the impact of COVID-19 is being felt across the country. America depends on these heroes every day and in the days ahead we will depend on them even more. At Harbor Freight, we want them to know that they can depend on us too.
    So we’ve decided to donate our entire supply of the personal protective equipment items listed below to front line hospitals with 24 hour emergency rooms in the communities served by our stores.
    • N95 Masks
    • Face Shields
    • 5 and 7 mil Nitrile Gloves
    If you work at a hospital with a 24 hour emergency room in need of these items, please ask the office in charge of procurement at your hospital to click here so they can provide us with the information we’ll need to determine if we can make a donation. If you’re not with a hospital, but would like to give us the name of a hospital with a 24 hour emergency room in your community that might need our help, please email us at hospitalhelp@harborfreight.com, identify the hospital’s city and state in the subject line, and our team will follow-up.
    PLEASE DO NOT MAKE REQUESTS AT YOUR LOCAL STORE OR OUR CALL CENTER AND PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT HOSPITALS—THEY’RE BUSY HELPING THEIR PATIENTS.
    For hospitals we’re able to help, we’ll email them a voucher when the supplies are available for pick up at their local Harbor Freight Tools store.
    Although we certainly won’t have enough of these supplies to fill everyone’s needs, we’re going to donate everything we’ve got. We also recognize that there are so many other critically important people responding to this crisis and that there is need everywhere. We’ve chosen to focus our efforts on hospitals with a 24 hour emergency room with the hope that we can help as many people as possible right now.
    Thank you and God Bless,

Ive read that and at first look is convincing. If you test positive did you die from covid or the dozen other ailments that would have killed you anyway?

Heres how i see it....just like AIDS this is an immune system compromising disease. People infected with aids dont die FROM aids. They die from the dozens of other malladies an otherwise healthy immune system would fight off.

The already immune compromised folks dont stand a chance in fighting off covid. With that said covid still seems to kill the gamut of ages yet the vast majority dead were very sick to begin with.

Seems to tie in well with the findings from those geneticists and immunologists from India who said the Wuhan virus had traces of HIV segments sewn into it. Sounds more and more like a bio weapon that escaped the lab. No one is saying it but already you see people talking about siezing Chinese assets as reparations. The clamp down on this virus was almost universal in response, too bad the timing was botched. The various governments around the world all know the truth and are petrified to let the people know.

Wife just got a text from her supervisor, her hospital, here on Long Island, is now at 100% capacity and they have taken over her EP lab where they install pacemakers, implantable defibrillators, etc. to be the non-covid ICU. Regular ICU is now 100% Covid. Non Covid patients are being housed (isolated) in the cafeteria to try to prevent cross infection.

I suggest watching "V for Vendetta" again. It's a good action flick on its own. But I suggest paying attention to the scare that leads to the power grab. I think it was called the "three waters" infection.

I'm watching the Senate live atm but before tuning in I watched governor cuomo making a statement. He said the state will take spaces from lodging to long term care and rehab.
