That combo is also insanely common in Americans over 50. What country do you all think you live in. Your average fat ass middle age American has like 23 pre-existing conditions.

I have some chronic conditions, so I’ve isolated myself in an old trailer that my grandfather used to live up in the middle of Wisconsin to try to get away from the metro area. I feel fine but due to hoarding I can’t get much food! Unreal how people can buy up supplies. 

Misinformation, an out of control msm, disgusting social-media, a political war still raging.  I can understand why people may feel unsure and scared.  Hoarding and stocking up on things is a line of defense humans/animals have.  An instinct similar to perhaps what drove you out into the boonies.  I find it a little odd that the majority of people weren't at least a little bit prepared for SOMETHING.  Your life is either too cozy or you aren't in touch with the basic human instincts... feed and defend. :P

Probably a smart move you made to distance yourself.  Beyond the scope of the virus itself, I think the next few weeks will be trying times to say the least.

Lmfao!  How many commercials do we have to see and say "hey I got that" lol.  RLS?  Toe fungus?  100 different ways to be depressed and medicated?  Malvina had it right a long time ago the year I was born lol....

New map of confirmed cases from Indiana's virus page

Obviously there is undercounting because of testing issues.  It is no surprise that Marion county/Indianapolis leads the state, but another thing that stands out are the very low numbers in the donut counties around there.   A lot of people commute into Indianapolis from those counties, though less now than a couple weeks ago with many companies putting emphasis on working from home.

Good news in Italy is that deaths were down from yesterday.  Bad news it was still well over 600.


It’s absolutely horrifying what is going on in Italy. New York City is having a horrible day today as well. Anyone who thinks we wake up tomorrow and poof this is gone is delusional. The fact of the matter is, this is going to continue spread violently, and unfortunately result in many many more fatalities.

I just don't see this being as bad as the 2009 pandemic. Over 12,000 Americans died in that one.

If it isn't worse than 2009 then it will be because of the measures being taken. 61,000,000 infections on 2009. A conservative estimate of that many infections with this virus would result in 610,000 deaths.

The swine flu deaths took like a year or more to get to the 12,000+ number, iirc.  We'll see where we are with covid19 in early to mid 2021.  Hopefully it will be a lower death toll in the US... if it is, it will be because of the current measures and some very effective/widely available/low cost treatment option.

The increasing positive test numbers should not be a cause to panic, rather it's a reflection of increased testing. Something we were (and probably still are) woefully behind in doing. What will be critical is the numbers of those positive tests that are needing hospitalization, ICU admittance, and unfortunately deaths. Hopefully the measures we are now taking (again, much later than we needed to be) give the healthcare system help in treating those in need of critical care.

To those in the factories supplying goods, delivering goods, grocery workers, medical personnel, essentially all "essential" workers...be well and stay safe as you can. I know it's been 6 days a week, 50-60 hours a week for us at my office for awhile. Tiring for sure, but we forge on. 

And lastly, just wanted to say I hope people are taking mental breaks from this. Just reading the thread in the SNE forum, you can read the panic and terror from some. I think part of it is the unknown, but also part of those that live and die with each report that comes out. Not healthy. Along with the unfortunate loss of life and economic demise this will cause, I'm worried many will have a PTSD type reaction to all of this. Hope those that need help, will seek help.

Be well fellow weather peeps. And hope for the best. :)

Well said.  And yeah, increased depression, suicides, child abuse, the economics, etc are the negative consequences of shutting so much down, especially if it goes on for a while.  It is a tough spot for decision makers to be in.

We're all gonna get it eventually.  We know these precautions are just to keep the medical infrastructure from being overwhelmed.  My issue is that the richest country in the world isn't prepared to treat .02%, yes POINT zero two percent, of its population in a trauma ICU situation. .02%, thats just nuts.

Also, I'm not gonna go into the reaction here in Mayberry but it's ridiculous.  Focus has been on the big metro centers but there are a gazzilion Mayberry's across this country.  Nothing is more corrupt than Mayberry politics and this thing is just now starting to hit the Mayberry's of this country.  7-14 days shits gonna start hitting the proverbial fan, especially in the Mayberry's.  The current reaction is just not sustainable, especially in Mayberry. :cry:

Although testing is a bit better than it was early on, there is no question we are still in serious catch up mode in this country, with some states lagging behind more than others.  In some instances, the only reported case in a county is of someone who died.  Very unlikely.
