[COVID-19] Corona Virus [Your local reports]
RE: Corona Virus [Your local reports]
Over the pass , the next county over, they reported an increase of cases now up to 40.
Because Summit County is a confluence of several resorts, the guvnor enacted the stay-in-place directive. That is one downfall of a resort area... a lot of folks gather from all around the world.

Kinda' weird... drove over there last week and Breckenridge, a normally vibrant town during spring break was practically a ghost town.

RE: Corona Virus [Your local reports]
I have tracked the outbreak in PA since early March. The entire state is under a stay-at-home order despite the fact we have only 7016 total cases, mostly in the Philadelphia area and a hot spot in Pittsburgh.  After social distancing kicked in, I was looking for a slowdown in growth, but in the past few days, the daily increase in cases has gone back up from 18% to 21% per day.  The effect of this on growth of the number of cases is exponential. So the 5800 cases yesterday became over 7000 cases today and will be over 31,000 cases by April 10 at t his rate.  This chart is a projection from April 1 to 10 based on the current rate of growth.  It seems pretty discouraging, however, this curve will eventually turn and flatten.  Even if this projection is accurate, the 31,944 cases on April 10 will still only be one in 263 individuals on a population basis (0.3%).

RE: Corona Virus [Your local reports]
The state government has banned the use of "a point of care serological (blood) test (including an assay or device) (POC Test) as an acute illness diagnostic tool for COVID-19". It appears these "instant" tests rely on the presence of antibodies, which may not be detectable in the blood stream for a week or more after infection. The tests are giving many false negative results. In other words, if you have recently been infected this type of test won't detect it, and you'll think you're ok - but you're not.

In other news, one of the cruise ships at Fremantle (the Artania) was supposed to have all its passengers evacuated. Approximately 40 have been admitted to hospital here in Perth and all the other passengers were given flights home to Germany. Now it turns out there were still 12 passengers left on board as they were deemed too ill to fly. But the government wasn't told. They have now been evacuated, along with some of the crew. The rest of the crew are staying on board but the ship is refusing to sail until 14 days after the last confirmed case is taken off. State government wants the ship gone but Border Force have so far agreed to let it stay for a short while. These cruise ships are a wicked problem for governments all round the world.

We've had a localised spike in the Kimberley region in the far north of Australia.The Kimberley covers 423,000 sq km - about the size of California - but only has a population of around 50,000. Many of these people live in remote aboriginal communities where health standards are low and chronic disease rates are high. If the virus gets loose in these communities, it would be an absolute disaster.

Thanks Sleeprider for the PA updates.

Greencastle, Franklin county PA, US is a semi-ghost town during this lock down. We have 2 grocery stores here in town, a family owned one and one of the Martin's/Giant chain locations. Neither has but about half stock of normal status. Paper product aisle still bare.

Not much going on but staring at the walls and the PC screen. Our church services have been via Zoom virtual meeting in audio/visual. The biggest surprise I think is the low gas prices. I think we've not seen prices this low for close to 15 years. Greencastle has it at $2.07 and at a Maryland station 5 miles from home it's $1.81.

So much for the 7am to 9am "Senior" hours at Sam's Club around Atlanta, GA. on Tuesday and Thursday. The parking was full at 7:30am and the oldest person there was in their mid 40's.

Do you think the municipal water system makes folk younger looking than they are in Atlanta metro area?

The closest Wally World to me is in Hagerstown, MD. Even at 2-3 AM, their parking lot would normally be 2/3 full. Really? C'mon folks, go home.

In my post yesterday, I projected Pennsylvania cases would rise from 7016 to 8480 today. I was wrong, it was only 8420.

RE: Corona Virus [Your local reports]
Hearing some scuttlebutt that the US fed gov might be going to a more strict lockdown nationwide this coming week, moving away from "suggested" to more of a "mandated".  Have no way to verify the info or not.  I do know that several people have received official "papers" from employers to document their employment in "essential services" so that if they get stopped by law enforcement, they can proceed.  There has to be a reason for that.

I've been hearing the same thing. I have plenty of friends in LE, and they have been discussing protocol for just such a directive and/or order. 

It's gonna get worse before it gets any better.  Eat-popcorn
