[COVID-19] Corona Virus [Your local reports]
#61
RE: Corona Virus [Your local reports]
BTW I crossed the border into MD to get fuel for the T-Bird this afternoon. Paid $1.89 per gallon of regular at the Martin's Food fuel station. Then I went into their grocery store. I yi yi they were almost out of everything one may want to buy. Obviously, paper and water were almost non-existent. Most bakery goods and bulk snacks closed/not stocked with signs. Meat counter closed. Some cereals, dairy, frozen pizza, some ice cream, a bit of candy, medicines. This was an all-over less than halfway stocked store!

PS location Maugansville, MD, US

I guess a DIY person could go old school and build a CPAP similar to the early big vortex motor ones. Looks somewhat like our pool pump motor we had 20 or so years ago.

RE: Corona Virus [Your local reports]
We  had our first confirmed case in Terre Haute Indiana today. Not a surprise but sobering. Fortunately for the hospital and medical personnel the patient has a mild case and is self isolating at home. Bars, restaurants (except got takeout food), the library, and gov offices are closed  but I believe all other businesses can operate unless they choose otherwise. I think several gyms have closed but not by government mandate. My daughter in Utah just informed me it's a misdemeanor to have a gathering of more than 10 in Salt Lake County. I wonder how that applies to workplaces.

Gov. Wolf in PA has ordered via his list of life-sustaining vs non-life-sustaining jobs in PA who can stay open and those who he states must close. This order is expected to start this evening or fines will begin this Saturday.

You can see the chart from yesterday quoted above. We appeared to be on an expodential growth curve for the number of cases in PA.  Today's report of 268 cases is an increase, but look what we have here.  Could this be a change in the trend?

A little different scaling on the same chart.

China is claiming that the rate of infection is now falling and that they have passed "peak virus". Maybe true, may be propaganda. The optimist in me hope it's true.

Meanwhile back home in Oz our local pharmacist is selling individual rolls of toilet paper for $3.00 each. It's legal but highly immoral in my point of view.

Key point in your statement is that they're CLAIMING this.  

Posted this elsewhere, but I don't believe for a second the numbers the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is putting out, especially the numbers for the past couple of days where they said the number of new COVID-19 cases was zero.  Are you kidding me?  NO new cases anywhere in China (population of 1.3 billion people)?-- when the numbers prior to that were at very high levels just a day or two ago?   I don't trust anything the CCP is saying.  They're in damage-control mode now.

I'd say get rid of the Chinese numbers in your chart and start charting the more accurate numbers presented by other countries.  Or at least have two charts (one with the China data and one without) so we can compare the two.

My personal belief is that the fake Chinese numbers are falsely skewing the curve to the flat side.

A bit odd that if the reports are true, China didn't bother to report Corona Virus issue for at least 3 weeks, presumably to other world leaders. Instead, they decided to punish doctors that were concerned about the virus.

I wouldn't trust China with the truth any more than I would N. Korea.
