I didn't say that SARS was in 2009.... The 2009 pandemic was H1N1....

This new virus is a version of SARS....

The video was very helpful,  Bob.

Alan, I’m not so sure the media is the problem, rather I think that some governments are purposely withholding information of the true danger of the pandemic and the actual numbers of those who are positive for the virus and those who are sick, and those who are dead. We still aren’t testing in the numbers other countries are and thus we have been way to slow to react. Turns out we are less advanced than we thought we were.

Hospitals are overwhelmed. I have seen nurses on several social media sites begging for proper masks, as the hospitals are running out. Those front line people must be protected. Meanwhile the local Ace Hardware repackages bulk purchased masks into individual packages and charges ridiculous prices. Price gouging sucks.

Good luck to us all.

The Texas AG has vowed to investigate any and all price gouging and proceed accordingly.

I see Cuomo just announced they expect 40-80% of New Yorkers will be infected.... My son, who is an ER nurse, says that 70% is typical for infection rates in a pandemic.... Of those 80% of cases will be mild and the remainder will require some level of medical care.... That means about 14% (about 1 in 7 people)….  :o

Kansas city, MO, and the two Kansas counties that make up Kansas City, KS and the Kansas side suburbs have issued stay at home orders for the next 30 days starting Tuesday at midnight. 

Very surreal times.

To me Alan, the scary part is how closely this resembles Martial Law.

You are very correct, Captain. Just as amazing, is we're all sort of following along like sheep!

According to the Worldometer, the USA now has the lead for coronavirus cases, more than China or Italy....  :o
