    To supplement this the KY Board of Pharmacy has issued the following guidance: https://pharmacy.ky.gov/Documents/Kentucky%20Board%20of%20Pharmacy%20COVID-19%20FAQs.pdf Pages 7-9 cover it, but essentially the doctor has to provide the diagnosis to fill the RX, the pharmacist has the right to use their professional judgement when it comes to filling the medications. They can refuse the fill if they feel it violates dispensing guidelines. ...

    The CDC decided to create its own test as opposed to taking the one offered by the WHO but it turned out the CDC one didn't produce consistent results. So they had to scrap it and start again. Not entirely sure why they decided against the WHO one, but we are where we are.

    Not sure of exact numbers but I know many pharmacists are not happy about the proclamation of it as a treatment without clinical trials. Largely because of the number of patients that will go with out. That and I know a number of pharmacists I have spoken to have indicated that many doctors are calling in scripts for family (which is ethically questionable most of the time anyway) for Plaquenil and Zithromax to hoard it just in case they need...

    No vaccine because this strain of the virus didn't make the jump from animal to human until last November. Then it was just a mystery illness until it was identified, then work can start on a vaccine but that takes time and trials.

    It had to mutate at least twice already to be transmissible between humans. Once to go from original host species to human and then again to eventual transfer from human to human. Even so from what I have read there have been no other mutations detected that I have found. It is worth noting that not all viruses mutate at the same rate. Bear in mind that smallpox has been fully eradicated outside of the lab and polio would be gone as well...

    A Covid-19 vaccine would likely be more effective since it doesn't seem to be mutating as rapidly as influenza does. That is one of the reasons why that vaccine is problematic, they are going after a moving target perpetually.

    I honestly hope that guru is right and this is a complete overreaction and we did this all needlessly. The big concern with this disease is the the fact that since it came from an animal we don't have any natural immunity to it compared to the flu (which is still very deadly) also we have nothing resembling a vaccine or truly effective treatments short of supporting the body until it manages to fight it off. Also how many people who end up dying...

Convincing Boomer Parents to Take the Coronavirus Seriously | The New Yorker The frustration millennials have with older people not taking coronavirus precautions seriously - ABC News Boomers Worry Least About COVID-19, Driving Millennial Children Mad - Rolling Stone That's just the first page of results on google. I had seen it a few other places and on social media before googling it.

    I would say that plus the combination of many older people refusing to social distance plus the Gen Z kids thinking they are invincible and congregating in great numbers that the death toll would be higher there too. That would be my thoughts, especially given the condo and retirement communities down there that put them in relatively close contact with each other.

    Well the supply chain that keeps them stocked would need to keep up and running. There is probably little need for much of what a mall would supply as of now. Although I would say that if you go into full lockdown every business would have to justify staying open as opposed to justifying why they would need to close down. I think where we are in KY at the moment is probably a decent place.

    When you say non-essential how do you define it, which stores specifically do you mean? Groceries, pharmacies, and gas stations are obviously going to fall into the essential category.

    Not only that but their refusal to abandon some of their superstitious treatment is infuriating because it leads to a ton of poaching of endangered species.

    Quarantine is nothing new. This has happened before in the past and there are even court cases that hold it up, that said I think the biggest issue for most of us is that on account of the vaccines and treatments out there this is the first real instance of it since 1918. This was quite common at a local level in the 19th century and before. Make no mistake though if we suddenly stopped vaccinating en masse this would become the norm.

    You really need to read the report posted earlier. I think it outlines certain things that make this a different animal than that.

    I agree 100% that the odds are better. I also think that because our lives are more interconnected than ever before that people are going to be more willing to flaunt the recommendations.

    My comparison is rate of contagion, I have repeatedly stated that this will not be nearly as deadly. The comparison has entirely to do with rate of transmission, which this looks to transfer at least twice as rapidly as the flu. My family is not directly at risk, but we have parents that we would rather protect. I mean for what it's worth I wouldn't care if people who aren't worried got sick and died if it weren't for the fact that they can...
