    slow steady decline since 4/22 with just 2 days with an uptick I believe.  I wonder if "Nerd" will move any reopenings forward?

    -

    Edit-Lamont says he wants 10,000 tests a week but the demand to be tested is not there-who should be getting test?  The general public?   It's unclear what he's looking for here.

    Yeah if the demand isn’t there then how can you meet a requirement? I also understand you want to know how many are positive but asymptotic but you would just have to test everyone like once a week or whatever at least.

    I'd be interested in understanding what is driving CT and NY's hospitalizations to decrease at a much faster rate than MA, even when adjusted for population. 

    Is there something fundamentally different about the patient population being infected? 

     

     

    I know they were doing some plasma treatment at some of the CT hospitals. The health care group St. Francis is part of was one of fur to be approved to do the treatments. Not sure if this is a reason...never actually heard any follow up with this 


  2. It would be sweet if CT could drop below 600 hospitalizations by the end of the weekend. At 648 now...given the number this week don’t think that’s very likely. Today’s decline of 36 was most all week.

    CT #'s continue to improve-less than 5% positive rate on testing

    COVID-19 Cases 41,559 + 271
    COVID-19 Associated Deaths 3,826 + 23
    Patients Currently Hospitalized with COVID-19 648 - 36
    COVID-19 PCR Tests Reported 235,525 + 5,756

    Fairfield County getting closer to sub-200 hospitalizations. Litchfield did increase by 2 and Tolland no longer has 0 as they increased by 2.


  4. Booked 3 nights at Hampton Beach July 2 - 5 for my girlfriend's birthday. Hoping things will be much farther along then...and hopefully there will be life on the boardwalk.

    The difference seems to be locations that took initiative before the Government told them they had to do it....A lot of people watched the wave coming from China through Europe and started taking precautions, even while our Government officials were saying it was no big deal and that we should continue going about life as if the virus wasn't there. Now we have massive parties in the Ozarks, fights to allow churches to go back to normal, etc....Now, we are at the crossroads around here, do we go back and pretend the virus is gone or do we go about our daily lives with extra precautions? Time will tell I guess...

    Agreed

    VA has double the population.. why is that important?

    And CT is 3-4 times higher in population density

    The turnaround there has been amazing and looking at states you guys lie between it makes it even more impressive. Encouraging to see success stories like that.

    I really wonder what the difference maker is. At least from my experiences it seems like a significant number of people are really taking this serious. Heck, I even started to notice a big decrease in traffic even before the stay at home orders were introduced. I think people were starting to even like social distance before the orders came.

    VA has something going on, their counts have been very high. Connecticut is going the positive direction the other way. 

    VA/MD have been getting hit hard...but yeah CT has really gone the other way. At one point CT was like top 3 in # of cases I think


  8. VA passed CT in total cases today...although could be brief depending on what CT pulls up but given the numbers VA has been putting up they'll pass CT for good tomorrow.

    it's interesting, CT gov wants to do 100,000 tests a week...so who is supposed to get tested?  Random people with no symptoms?    Not sure people will be all that interested in getting a swab shoved up their nose unless they feel there's a need...

    Great point...at some point tests will eventually go down and for reasons just like you said...how many random people who aren't showing symptoms are going to want to be tested?

    Let's hope we see crisp clean Canadian air masses dominate nobody likes the stinky rank high dew foggy wet air being outside. Well check that, those who thrive in AC might

    I think the stuffiness of being inside has gotten to you

    Number of recoveries has been rising sharply lately both worldwide and US - there's a number you don't mind seeing become exponential! Closing in on 2.5M world and 500K US.

    Number of deaths in closed cases worldwide have dropped to 12%

  12. That just can't be right. 

    Looking at worldometers though yesterday CT had 30,912 active cases at the end of the reporting day...today there are 30,863 listed. 

    EDIT: It's total cases which have dropped by 15. Interpreted this wrong...but active cases are lower. Guess the data on how many positive tests hasn't been dumped yet?

    Don’t get SEMA hopes up. They’ve been let down all too often with faux severe threats. 

    That's b/c they get excited for setups which favor NY/PA into western New England lol.

    Sat could be a sneaky downslope dandy if the front clears in the morning. Euro has lingering 850s around 10-12C and west flow

    Also can't rule out potential for a strong/severe storm across SE New England...especially along any sea-breeze.

    The Spain numbers been jumpy the past few days, I guess they are going back and rechecking data.

    yeah I kinda noticed that. Now that things seem to be much more under control there this perhaps gives them an opportunity to correct data and re-check things
