    This seems to be hitting the US a little different. Might want to get out of the bars and off the beaches.

    A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention analysis of U.S. cases from Feb. 12 to March 16 released Wednesday shows 38 percent of those sick enough to be hospitalized were younger than 55.

    The first confirmed case of the new coronavirus in Hamilton County is a female New York state resident in her 20s, Hamilton County officials announced Thursday.

    Cincinnati’s first case.

    Keyword...confirmed. Meaning the test results have come back confirmed as positive.

    My brother is a respiratory therapist on the "pandemic response team" at Good Samaritan in Cincinnati. He's been caring for 3 coronavirus patients since Monday. His words, "They are positive. We just don't have the official test information proving that they are positive."

    Ohio is classifying this as a New York case and will not include it in Ohio numbers.

    They're probably just mad that she's a better driver than everyone else in the state.

    It was announced a little while ago that 50% of the cases in the U.S. come from 10 counties. There are more than 3,000 counties in the U.S.

    Yeesh.

    That's important for the sake of CDC documentation and finding out the whats/wheres/hows that help prevent it from spreading further.

    Also, the ability to trace viral phenotype and genotype markers in virus strains is key in developing proper vaccines. If you want to develop a vaccine to try to fight COVID-19, and then, oh hey, we've got a strain of it with different markers...it's incredibly helpful to the process to be able to go find where that different strain started and how/when it became different.

    Not sure it's hitting any different or if it's just proof that the above age group were the ones not giving a damn about it. And yes I fall into that age group as well.

    Phenotype = The way it appears/looks. Physical traits.

    Genotype = The way it is built genetically.

    Ohio added 30 cases today.

    Kentucky added 2.

    Those numbers are from United States Coronavirus: 13,475 Cases and 187 Deaths - Worldometer
