New case in Noble County, Indiana. About 30 minutes away from me.

My employer now has some folks in the 14 day work-from-home jail from attending a business conference out east. Nobody from my particular office, as far as I am aware.

Neat.

pre-banning meltdowns from the whackos are the most entertaining part of the board

this is where I land, too. plus, the mods probably don't know how to ban a poster while simultaneously being able to defend the non-banning of IMB

Mainly, though, I think i just miss CubbieBum and wish he was still here.

He's saying you set the toleration bar for verbal abuse, so the bar is set high.

With each day, South Korea is showing how this can be managed:

The response doesn't need to be nearly as draconian as China, but top-down action needs to happen to ensure as much testing as possible, and propagating realistic self-isolation and social separation as much as possible, too. This makes it abundantly clear that this approach does work.

Is there a link to an actual article/analysis rather than just the image link?

Hopefully the x% of 'Murica who believes this is all a hoax , or this is just simply overblown unserious matter, just form a commune and hang together during all of this. But yeah, lack of social cohesion makes me gaze with wonder at those South Korea numbers. I have my doubts about how it works for us here.

Nope. Just the image linked from the SK CDC.

I don't even think it's so much a cultural or mindset thing; it really just boils down to being able to test fast and test often. If we had less insane WH right now, the military could be used to coordinate with the CDC and FEMA and local authorities and medical professionals to effectively set up field hospital-like facilities to process SK-style drive-thru/curbside testing. Then you catch more people who have the less symptomatic version, can direct them to isolate for 2 weeks, and then contact trace at their school or work or house apartment building, etc. and do the same.

Much smaller sample size, but Iran has had 4 days of consecutive drops, too:

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/iran/

If that continues, and we end up seeing the same relatively soon with Italy now that they're taking action, it should be smash a chair over the head-obvious the kind of responses that need to be taken here to control this.

Well, this has proven my company's "Business Continuity Plan" was theatre. Like many companies, the plan here is that everyone works from home with their own personal devices. Only now are they realizing that many people either 1) don't have a device or place at home where they can work effectively for a long period of time and 2) many people share devices with family or spouses who also may be required to work from home and 3) we don't have the technological capacity to have a 100% remote workforce.

Apparently completely outsourcing the continued operation of the company to your underpaid workforce is a great plan, until it isn't.
