I'm running out of booze. Bourbon gone. Tequila has maybe two drinks left. Maybe a six pack of Molson Canadian left. 

Close to panic time.

yeah ... plus I use some Indica gummies at night for a sleep aid.  I have three left. Dispensaries are doing curbside pick up here, so I can put on some gloves and pick up some more. 

put in an order at the store for some groceries to be delivered ... they ain't coming until Saturday at 9 pm.

Well, there is at least one up side to all this.

 

The restaurants are closed so Walmart is getting the AAA beef now, lots of it, and priced only twice as much as lean ground!

Read an article that stated the covid19 virus is in the same category as the flu . So if you get it and recover you should be good ; until next season .

I thought he said that models have worst case scenarios and best case scenarios.  The end result is somewhere inbetween.  You're quoting worst case scenario. 

 

Models now show about 84,000 predicted dead from C19.  About same as 2017-2018 Flue season.

You should have added "until death".

Puhleeze stop attempting to equate covid19 to any flu except the 1918 flu. Why? Because those 2 events have one big thing in common - ZERO human immunity to a lethal virus.

 

During a normal flu season hospitals do not get buried in critically sick peoples. Sure a lot of people get sick but it is spread out spatially and over time. A regular flu season is manageable. Yes influenza kills but covid19 is shown to be 15X more fatal and that’s with the best care possible.

 

Hopefully covid19 will ONLY kill less than 100,000. That will happen ONLY if America keeps itself shut-in and sequestered for whatever length of time is needed to stifle this bug.

Tapping on half way there with ~38,000, and we're only a few months in. CV19 has an exponential growth rate and the prediction charts are only accurate as what people's behavior / restrictions are. Without flattening the curve, the growth rate would double every day, or more.

The charts below show projected hospital resource use based on COVID-19 deaths.

The projections assume the continuation of strong social distancing measures and other protective measures.

Understand from the news that the quick test kits are going to first responders, health care workers, and those drive through testing places. 50,000 per week. Maybe it can be ramped up. Takes 15 minutes not 45 seconds like first reports.

Sure seems like 10 times that much are needed. Maybe there is another making kits also.

This thing is kind of like a hurricane. You have those people who say I'm going to prepare, be ready to evacuate,  and leave well before it's too late. They look at the "cone", the models and do what they're supposed to do. There is less death as a result. But there is a fringe who look at the lower numbers and say, "see it was a panic, over reaction."

 

My biggest fear is when it rebounds, and it will rebound, people come away from this first round thinking it was media hype and no big deal. 

 

The better you react to it and prepare, the more you prove the view of the uneducated and ill informed.  It's a paradox.
