  1. Yeah I definitely feel for you guys that have to go into the office/lab during this. Stay healthy and even if you get it, hopefully everything will work out all right. We have the option to go in but but its only for a very limited time (less than 4 hours) and per request, usually just to grab something if we need to bring back home to work on.
  2. This may have validity but I suspect that connecting it to the virus does not.
  3. This man leading the charge.
  4. I believe my family has all been exposed and recovered. We all the classic symptoms in February. It was one of the most vicious coughs I have ever had. It will be interesting to see what the antibody tests show and how these graphs could be reshaped in time. I spoke to a nurse at MGH yesterday and she said they are working hard to come up with one so they can get the antibodies from folks volunteering to treat the severe cases.
  5. If this was true, wouldn’t the virus have spread quickly through the US and California causing mass fatalities? There was no social distancing in place. I have not seen evidence of a first curve being represented by other illnesses.This is an interesting graphic but the CA infection idea seems pretty far fetched.
  6. I could be mistaken, but I believe massachusetts has an advisory vs order.
  7. The article in my post above shows guidance was still very poor weeks after the 1/27 quote you posted, with regards to the US population. Fauci doesn't want people to worry about coronavirus, the danger of which is "just minuscule." But he does want them to take precautions against the "influenza outbreak, which is having its second wave." "We have more kids dying of flu this year at this time than in the last decade or more," he said. "At the same time people are worrying about going to a Chinese restaurant. The threat is (we have) a pretty bad influenza season, particularly dangerous for our children." Fauci offered advice for people who want to protect against the "real and present danger" of seasonal flu, which also would protect against the hypothetical danger of coronavirus.
  8. Even in mid February the risk was considered minuscule by our top health official. We forget quickly. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/health/2020/02/17/nih-disease-official-anthony-fauci-risk-of-coronavirus-in-u-s-is-minuscule-skip-mask-and-wash-hands/4787209002/
  9. This women was alone in her car and posed no risk to anyone. She was pulled over and cited for taking a leisurely drive. I am all for social distancing and advising people to stay home. Most take it very seriously, myself included. Regardless Is this really the direction we need to go to beat this? IN this case pulling her over increased risk of transmission. https://www.yahoo.com/news/police-cite-woman-going-leisurely-204119272.html I do agree if we are going the route of having stay at home orders, we should be doing it with all of them. People will travel across state lines regardless. Having a patchwork of states having stay at home orders is just going to prolong this process and will cause the early states to have the biggest economic impact.
  10. What's the lesson here we should treat our people more like an Authoritarian government? It should NEVER happen and that is a great thing about living in this country. I am concerned about the erosion of our personal rights and freedoms from this episode, people should not be getting pulled over for going on a leisurely drive like that young woman in PA.
  11. Still a few inches left from yesterday. Whats left froze solid overnight. Despite a few middling events, this was actually our second largest snow total this year. Up to 52.1” on the year.
  12. A couple shots of the snow from last night.
  13. We finished with 5.5" here and some cold rain at the end. 4" on the driveway.
  14. Just had a flash of lightning and thunder here! Crazy rates, coming down in globs.
  15. Over to huge flakes here after a brief mix. Pounding
