    Both New Jersey and Oregon are preparing to put you in jail for violating the quarantine mandates.

    I would think New York, California, and maybe even Ohio may not be far behind.

    Marshall Law is here in America.

    This is what China and South Korea did along with extreme testing. The longer we wait the longer this will last and the worse this will be.

    This seems to be more factual than opinion.

    Been watching too much TV and listening to too many opinions. However, this is one thing I think might make sense. For the most part, we have been social distancing and our at risk people have been taking stronger isolating measures.

    Why couldn’t we, in say another week, start opening up some businesses and allowing those not at risk go back to work? Of course this would have to be done gradually with increased sensitivity to hand washing and other protective measures.

    Not saying I have formed a strong opinion about this, but it is something that could be considered.

    I see in LA County California they are closing down gun stores saying they are nonessential businesses.

    I don’t think this can happen until we have nationwide testing and almost immediate access to tests.

    Unfortunately this seems to be as far off as the vaccine and anti-viral drugs.

    What's more interesting is the reason that was given. Apparently there's concern that non historical gun owners are buying them up as well as people who have not been trained. The guy calling the shots said that can lead to gun violence in the homes......

    Nevada 245 55 4 1.63%
    Florida 1,227 220 18 1.47%


    Basic analysis:

    - The top 4 (NY, NJ, WA, CA) make up over half the cases. This statistic has remained constant since last week.
    - States with zero deaths seem to have either no large metro areas (NE, MT, ID, AR etc.) or are low density states (NM).
    - With the exception of Washington and Louisiana the states with high percentage of deaths per case are states with low numbers of total cases - like Kentucky.
    - The state with the most data - NY - has a death per case ratio of less than 1%.

    There is a lot of noise in the data for sure but as more comes in the "model" of what happening may clarify. Right now just somewhat organizing the data to see what trends there may be. Examples if the first bullet above. The Big 4 have been the Big 4 for a week now.

    That’s just natural selection at that point.
