    Those numbers are all over the place - between 6 and 78 percent is not very telling. You'd imagine they'll skew higher since the people being tested now are more likely to have it, and those numbers will slide down as testing at scale is further implemented.
    the article said it was a very rough impression, and tests were against sick people (with various illnesses) so high positives.

    a key point is that testing is finally, week late, being done but 100K tests so far is ridiculously low in 340M people. SK was doing 10K per day

    We will start catching more.

    The ed up thing is that if all the shelter in place works... the idiots will say there wasn't anything to worry about. :^/

    Got a bit more data now. what is the trend line looking like?
    Looks like it has gotten worse. The slope of the log of deaths seems to be increasing.

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

    Of course the deaths are a function of the policy of 2-3 weeks back and not what we're doing now.

    I mean we're about to be locked inside for who the f*ck knows how long right as the weather starts to warm up outside so I can't really blame for trying to enjoy it while they can.

    Vacancies at the top of the Homeland Security Department threaten coronavirus response

    DHS is currently led by its second acting secretary in a row, and its third head within a year.

    “You are asking the folks on the front lines to implement a policy that

    they have not yet been fully informed on or trained on, so of course you are going to have confusion,”

    “You have these issues because, again, it seems like it was

    implemented too quickly to allow the workforce to be able to properly implement it.”

    “65 percent of top jobs in the department are vacant or filled by acting appointees, more than in any other federal agency

    That lack of leadership trickles down, with other jobs going unfilled and with inadequate management.


    The Federal Emergency Management Agency is also part of DHS, by the way, and its number two job is unfilled.

    And that is while we’re talking about ways DHS might be involved in coronavirus response.

    More than one in four of the top jobs at Health and Human Services and

    one in three at the Defense Department are unfilled.

    This is not an administration remotely ready for a public health crisis,

    even if the guy at the top hadn’t spent nearly two months seemingly determined to make it worse.

    Second GOP senator caught dumping stocking — after receiving coronavirus briefing

    Two Republican senators have


    admitted in public filings to having sold stock just before the crash of the stock market.


    The first was Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC). Hours later, The Daily Beast reported interim Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA).

    Yup. See this is why nobody can discuss anything with you. You're an idiot and you're angry all the time.

    What's the end game for a full shutdown? Grind the virus to a halt only for it to bloom up later? So periodic full shutdown until a vaccine? No.
    This is actually one of the strategies being discussed by MIT now.

    The graph looks a little convex now so maybe a bit of slowdown vs the exponential growth had it stayed constant. But you're probably looking at a longer time delay before we'll really see how well the lockdown has worked. I don't think many people who died today were infected in the last six days when the lockdown took place based on the long incubation period reported.

    And then the media stopped saying Wuhan because it sank in. It's not gonna sink in for Evertrumpers
    Spanish Flu, German Measles, West Nile Virus, Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever (Named after a river in Zaire), Marburg Virus (Named after a town in Germany), Lassa Fever (Named after a town in Nigeria), Lyme Disease (Named after a town in Connecticut, US).
    Why are the Chinese so sensitive about where it came from...?

    Sad they said 1000 deaths and four days after the video was published the death toll is 3400 there.

    I shudder to think what this is going to do to the UK with Boris Whifflefarts Johnson literally doing nothing.

    Not that it changes the point, but many assumed it came from the Iberian Peninsula although it was later debunked

    I don't know. I don't really care.

    I mean, serious question, what is the end game after this is all over to make sure the name Wuhan sticks? To shame them? Is Lyme, Connecticut still reeling?
