After two days of searching, I found some TP at the local Circle K!

Also for anyone who does not know, Home Depot carries TP!

Just saw a report from an American journalist in China that life is returning to normal there... restaurants have been given the all clear and Disney Shanghai is re-opening and new cases per day continues to drop fast. And they are now in a position to send aid to Italy.

Side note... only Wuhan was on complete lockdown. These improvements are happening in other parts of China too. That has to provide some hope to the rest of the world.

Yeah, that's a great sign for sure. Unless they somehow built a bubble of Wuhan, Hubei district. Similar to that wonky TV show that was on CBS "Under The Dome". Cancelled of course. Anyhow. Lol. Maybe Dr. Drew Pinsky is right that he felt confident this would be over fairly quickly. He said the CDC's #'s of 60-70% US Population infection rate was just not going to happen. I will also say if the media would shut up about this constantly it wouldn't create quite as much mass hysteria, fear, panic, and paranoia. One thing I've been saying all along is Ms. Buttersworth is way sexier than Aunt Jemima. Wait. WHAT? No. No. What I've been telling anyone who would listen is the over abundance of caution, fear, paranoia, would end up being far worse than the virus itself. In 2 weeks we'll either be saying "WHOA! what is going on! and no one is going to work or anywhere.", OR we'll be saying "What's seriously going on? Do you even know anyone who has this virus?" .... Yeah.

Yes. But keep in mind, China took much more drastic action, much quicker than most of the world.

 

But it is does show that it's possible for the virus to be contained and at least for a time die out. I'm guessing China is being very careful about letting anyone travel in or out of the country, now that the rest of the world could bring it back to them.

 

Best case scenario is that this is a quick-hitting pandemic that will do a lot of damage in a short amount of time globally, and then quickly fade away. But even if that's the case, the unfortunate reality is that many more will die in the coming weeks.

For anyone still trying to argue this is "just the flu"...this account is from a doctor in Italy. 

 

One after the other the unfortunate poor people come to the emergency room. They have far from the complications of a flu. Let’s stop saying it’s a bad flu. In these 2 years I have learned that the people of Bergamo do not come to the emergency room at all. They did well this time too. They followed all the indications given: a week or ten days at home with a fever without going out and risking contagion, but now they can’t take it anymore. They don’t breathe enough, they need oxygen.

 

Now, however, that need for beds in all its drama has arrived. One after another, the departments that had been emptied are filling up at an impressive rate. The display boards with the names of the sick, of different colors depending on the operating unit they belong to, are now all red and instead of the surgical operation there is the diagnosis, which is always the same cursed: bilateral interstitial pneumonia.

 

Now, tell me which flu virus causes such a rapid tragedy. Because that’s the difference (now I’m going down a bit in the technical field): in the classical flu, apart from infecting much less population over several months, cases can be complicated less frequently, only when the VIRUS destroying the protective barriers of the Our respiratory tract allows BACTERIA normally resident in the upper tract to invade the bronchi and lungs, causing more serious cases. Covid 19 causes a banal influence in many young people, but in many elderly people (and not only) a real SARS because it arrives directly in the alveoli of the lungs and infects them making them unable to perform their function.

 

And there are no more surgeons, urologists, orthopedists, we are only doctors who suddenly become part of a single team to face this tsunami that has overwhelmed us. The cases multiply, we arrive at the rate of 15-20 hospitalizations a day all for the same reason. The results of the swabs now come one after the other: positive, positive, positive. Suddenly the emergency room is collapsing. Emergency provisions are issued: help is needed in the emergency room. A quick meeting to learn how the first aid management software works and a few minutes later they are already downstairs, next to the warriors on the war front. The PC screen with the reasons for the access is always the same: fever and difficulty breathing, fever and cough, respiratory failure etc … The exams, radiology always with the same sentence: bilateral interstitial pneumonia, bilateral interstitial pneumonia, bilateral interstitial pneumonia. All to be hospitalized. Someone already to intubate and go to intensive care. For others it is late …

The latest numbers show 510 total recoveries and 67 deaths. You can't compare total cases to deaths, because ultimate outcomes will lag several weeks behind with this. But you are correct that the spread has slowed there, especially compared to Europe.

 

I'm sure I'm coming across as all doom and gloom but I think people having accurate information is important here.

Problem is the majority of the cases are now arising via community spread. It’s all over the place.

The travel ban won’t fix this now. Might slow it temporarily?

South Korea was about where the US is currently with cases on February 27th.

 

The rapid acceleration lasted for about a week after that point and then started to slow.

South Korea might not be a good geographical analog. They’re a small peninsula, and N-Korea effectively quarantines them from over-land imported spread, unlike Italy and the rest of the European Union.

All apple to oranges comparisons aside, I think you have to look at where they're at with infection rate.

 

Currently, they're at about 155 confirmed infections per million people. The U.S. is currently at about 5 per million. That's over 1,700 people...if we continue at the same rate as South Korea, that puts us at around 53,000 infections in a couple weeks.

 

However, we also have to consider that South Korea began large scale testing much earlier in their outbreak. So the U.S. numbers will probably multiply faster with the wide scale testing now becoming available.

Unpredictable how it might unfold here. Depends on our response, geography, perhaps weather, and of course the nature of the virus itself over time. I presume?

Italy, China, France, South Korea. The latter is probably the most optimistic outcome. Even in China, where they took drastic measures, that “upswing” lasted several weeks.

The US situation is intricate...seems there are bi-coastal epicenters now, from where the infection could easily radiate. I think geography and policy are the drivers, in which case, we’re definitely not South Korea.

If Italy shows a slowdown in new cases over the next week, that will be fantastic news. It would provide further proof that extreme social distancing measures do work to quickly slow this down.
