[COVID-19] Corona Virus [Your local reports]
#41
RE: Corona Virus [Your local reports]
high speed lead projectiles? the thought is too much to comprehend. maybe the most unsettling thing about all this is the potential to devolve into anarchy. we're already suffering internal & external attacks on facts, science, 'affordable' health care, the rule of law, the judiciary, and institutions of government generally. there's no guarantee the feds will get it right & I'll never advocate blind faith in anything, but I fear the worst case scenario in this situation if every community is free to make their own mistakes.

Mayor in Tucson has closed all bars (effective last night) and all restaurants are to-go or drive up only. Schools are out, Universities have all gone to on-line classes. Shortage of paper goods and pasta/rice and associated products. Went shopping Saturday and was able to stock up - dairy was in good shape with a lot of milk in the rear of the freezer. Bread aisle was in good shape, still quite a bit of water. Picked up a script on Monday at a different store and they had some paper goods, pasta low, but meat and dairy in good shape. Wife stopped at a Fry's yesterday and picked up some meat and other stiff. Produce has been in good shape.

Most groups have cancelled meetings. We closed our Masonic Lodge building effective tomorrow as we not supposed to have meetings of more than 10. Only letting a small number of folks have access to the building - if you have a master key, you can get in. Are keys are all electronic and restricted by time. We will need to have a random presence at the building mostly for security.

Staying home as much as I can - have a brief meeting today at church to figure how we will stream our services for the next couple of weeks. I am the "A/V expert" and run the stream most weeks. We will be keeping recommended social distance in the meeting.

In Australia the Prime Minister has said no gatherings bigger than 100 people. Companies are starting to split their work forces so only half in the office for alternating weeks.

Fun times.

All foreigner travellers will be banned from entering Australia from 9:00pm AEDT tomorrow.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced the enhanced border measures in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

It applies to all non-citizens and non-residents.

Australians will still be able to return from overseas but they will be required to self-isolate for 14 days.

The Government had previously banned foreign nationals from coming to Australia from China, Iran, Italy and South Korea.

New Zealand had already announced plans to close its borders to foreign nationals from midnight tonight.



WA Symphony Orchestra has cancelled all performances till the end of April, with later dates subject to review. Patrons have a range of options from full refund, credit for a later date, or donate the money to the orchestra. The Boss and I have decided to donate - somebody has to pay the musicians, technicians and all the other people who keep it going.

Toilet paper and bleach were immediately a problem in my area.  I can understand bleach since it is used in controlling viral spreads.  I do not understand the toilet paper shortage.  The worst part about a Pandemic issue is that people will die.  Hopefully it will be small numbers but if people die that means a population decrease and an increase of toilet paper will result.  Unfortunately, many will be inconvenienced due to the selfishness of some.

RE: Corona Virus [Your local reports]
The most up-to-date information on spread is usually on the State Department of Health website rather than a new site. For Pennsylvania, we can see a map and list of affected counties with numbers of cases. https://www.health.pa.gov/topics/disease...virus.aspx

Where I live in Westmoreland County, PA we now have 2-cases in the county, and 16 cases in Allegheny county (Pittsburgh), with 185 cases statewide, mostly focused in the Philadelphia area. Yesterday, it was 133 cases, so with a 40% increase in one day, the upswing is increasing fast. If this is logarithmic, the a 28% increase will mean 259 cases by tomorrow. It will be interesting to see the trends in rate of increase.

RE: Corona Virus [Your local reports]
I have tracked the number of positive Covid 19 cases in PA since March 11 on an Excel spreadsheet.  I thought you might like to see what the increase looks like so far.  That certainly looks like we're on an exponential curve. I'm watching and hoping for a deflection to the right or downward soon.
