    They probably just cut off Seoul. North Korea helped. Their hot spot was on other side of the peninsula and Seoul was hardly hit. The logistics are completely different in the two countries. And when New Yorkers are encouraged to right the subways - ugh.

    Going out. Telling doctor that will be going to somewhere with malaria and buying some z-pak. Seriously, did say yes. But, will keep aware of what is happening with this. Have seen two more direct situations from people who are trusted in last 24 hours. This thing is something that is different and serious. But sheltering-in-place for long term or as a new way of life is just not something that sounds right - as of now.

    A category that Kentucky leads the nation in. We have more deaths per positive test case than another state in the country. Twice the national average.

    Probably hard to say. If it survives, many stores will permanently shutter.

    User Worldometers new format its now easier to see normalized values of the metrics. The interesting find is that Kentucky does lead the nation - in deaths per identified positive test at 5.9%. The national average is 3.0%. The next closest in this category is Washington at 4.6%. Related - Kentucky is below the national averge in terms of test per person in the state and is 40th in terms of tests that are positive Tests that come...

    If we are at least on the road back by May 1, OK. If later than that, then the current increase could be a DCB or just a pump and dump game to squeeze what they can out of it. Q1 reports will have a big dent. Q2 we all know are are going to be a pure disaster.

    I keep trying to figure that out. Post #1252 in this thread was an attempt to figure it out by comparing states. I came away more confused than confirmed. NY (NYC area) is the epicenter of the worst situation. Is it a unique spot or is it the future? Let's hope its unique - and it likely is - or the ride is going to be bad medically to go with the economic catastrophe that is occurring and just getting started.

    I do not see how they rationalize these numbers. Here is what has to happen to get to 47,000 deaths (over 1% of the population). Using 4,400,000 as our population count. 50% get infected. 2,200,000 (seems high) 10% need hospitalization. 220,000 (seems to be the base assumption) 20% of those hospitalized die. 44,000 (seems high, but is the number needed to get near their number) They are not real open with the math or...

    There is no vaccine for any other corona virus. Not sure why there is much hope that one will be found for this one. Unless its one that is advertised as effective but works like the flu vaccine that is hit and miss each year. There are very big money players in this game though, so something will likely come out. Herd immunity and HCQ/Zinc treatment are possibly the long term solution.

    Was supposed to have a very expensive heart procedure the on the 17th. Cancelled. That's over $150,000 not billing - for one patient for one day. Multiply that by hundreds or more. This is bleeding the healthcare industry as bad as anybusiness. Dentists and Orthos are also getting killed by this.

    Side by side. Less peak, shorter period for Tennessee. No idea why. Tennessee's hot spots are Memphis and Nashville. Kentucky's somewhat hot spot is Louisville. This make sense since the more dense areas are having the most issues.

    Some numbers analysis using numbers from the Atlantic link that includes total number tests given in each state - a number that provides some level if insight. I layered state population that I had pulled from a source. a) With this I got Percentage of state population that has been tested. b) Positive tests that is expressed as percent of tests in a) and c) Deaths per 100,000 of state population. Sadly, this is progably the most objective...

    Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell from NYC has posted a series of 3 (through today) videos on the treatment using ventilators. His main message is that the "programing" of the ventilators that they typically use may be causing damage. The standard programming assumes a patient's muscles can not do the work. Here is a short video from 4 days ago. His first video from 5 days ago is longer and more detailed. He posted a quick one this morning as...

    UK Healthcare modeling shows the peak in mid-June. So they are saying this is just the very beginning. We are barely into a bell curve model they show. I have no idea if those model assume a lower parallel volume through use of HCQ. And their model shows peak could be handled with the existing hospital facilities since almost every room in the new hospital can act as an ICU. But obviously they are having to develop additional contingency...

    Family member who is pilot posted pictures boxes of test loading onto Southwest flights. Fedex and UPS work if overnight is acceptable. But the airlines rapid transport services go intraday. We used to use Delta Dash a lot to move datacenter computer tapes before the days of high speed bandwidth everywhere.

    Another cut at Worldometer numbers of deaths (as of yesterday) with state population as denominator. NY is in a class by itself in terms of deaths per 100,000 - over 8. Louisiana is second in a class by itself with over 5 deaths per 100,000. States ramp down after that with NJ being just over 3 deaths per 100,000 leading the rest. Kentucky currently has around 0.4 deaths per 100,000 Wyoming still has not reported any deaths.
