Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

60% of the passengers on the Diamond Princess were aged 60 or older. Even though the ship was exposed to the virus for 14 days before being quarantined, only 7 people died and they all were aged 70 or older. 21% of those aged 60 and above got coronavirus. 1.5% of those 60 and older who got coronavi...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Which goes back to what John Ioannidis has been saying about our response. He says we don’t know for sure how many are infected, but he seems to lean toward the number that the Princess cruise ship found. Obviously New York and Seattle needed the lockdown, but what about the economic devastation th...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Any updates on how the US is doing compared to Italy 10 days in? What about people needing hospitalizations and ICU vs Italy a week in?

What happens in Illinois after 2.5 weeks if the hospitals are overwhelmed and more and more people are getting it? Another two weeks in lockdown?

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

I would think looking at total cases is not a good measure at all. The US is far bigger than Italy. If you want to compare, compare similar sized and populated areas. Someone else said it here, we essentially have different outbreaks all over the country and each may be different. As far as how bad...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

I saw an article in what I thought was the NY Times on how China stopped using chloroquine because of side effects, but I can’t find it now. I guess you can die from it or have really bad side effects if you accidentally take double the dosage. Has anyone run across that article?

It may just be the circles I run in, but I feel like the tide has turned to doom bonerism. I see a lot of "oh god my neighbor tried to shake my hand today so social distancing is a lie and we're going to hit tens of millions infected, I just know it!" The governor of California suggested ...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

FDA won’t approve Hydroxychloroquin yet. Trump loves to say something untrue just to get the public clamoring for it. Same with the Google website. Not a dumb move if the drug works.

Trump presser set for tomorrow at 10, presumably to announce the hydroxyclorquin “cure”. I won’t even care when he takes credit for it.

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

What are you hearing about chloroquine and its effectiveness at treatment? It’s not approved by the FDA for the coronavirus, but I don’t see why they don’t approve it now? What could it hurt?

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

In May of 2009 pharmaceutical companies started making a H1N1 vaccine. By November it was being administered. By “making a vaccine,” does it mean all the initial testing was completed and they moved to the manufacturing side or did they just make the H1N1 vaccine from beginning to end a lot faster?

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Maybe it’s just me, but it seems that the majority of experts are thinking that the worst-case scenario is actually going to occur. Even Trump is changing his tune.
