Corona Virus - How bad is it going to be?

Recommended Posts

FEMA has sent 8 military medical teams to California. Each team consists of 20 people including doctors, critical care nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians assistants and respiratory therapists.

The teams are in areas where hospitals are converting beds to additional critical care beds or are experiencing staffing shortages as some medical staff have contracted or are in quarantine due to exposure.

So far I have identified the locations of 4 of the DOD teams. 3 are in the San Joaquin Valley: Fresno, Visalia, and Lodi. Another team deployed to Rancho Mirage.

I might have missed this so apologies if it was posted before.

Researchers have been analyzing and tracking the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, since it first appeared in China in January. Researchers at The Scripps Research Institute have found that the strains spreading so quickly in Europe and the U.S. have a mutated S “spike” protein that makes it about 10 times more infectious than the strain that originally was identified in Asia. The research was published online on bioRxiv and has yet to be peer-reviewed.

The mutation does not appear to make the virus any more deadly than it already is, but it does appear to make it significantly more contagious. The original strain in China is dubbed D614, while the one found in the UK, Italy and North America by May is dubbed G614.

We've seen graphs of all sorts on this thread. Time for a poop graph.

Don't poo poo science sir, even if you don't give a crap....... but tracking the human species via feces is delving into the bowels of data for the benefit of health even if you don't give a shit

Too bad Georgia’s governor doesn’t protect his constituents the way Trump does his cronies.

Ohio veteran, 37, who went viral for refusing to wear a mask, died of COVID-19

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/07/17/covid-19-ohio-veteran-37-refused-wear-mask-died/5457283002/

An Ohio man who died due to complications from COVID-19 has drawn criticism for his staunch refusal to wear a mask earlier in the pandemic.

Richard Rose III, an Army veteran who spent nine years in the United States Army according to his obituary, died on July 4. He was 37.

Rose’s death gained notoriety on social media after expressing that he was “not buying a (expletive) mask” less than three months before his death.

“I’ve made it this far by not buying into that damn hype,” he said in a post published April 28.
