Now why do I feel this is not the Chicoms testing something on their own people first before letting it loose on the rest of us?

It really does not make a lot of difference whether the flu is as awful as some reports have it or that reports are overblown as others claim.

The second and third order effects will be a big deal.

We are already into quarantines exceeding half-a-Billion people, states, countries, ports... global shipping is plummeting; all forms of production are shutting down before our eyes... the world-wide supply chain is about to hiccup bigly.

What would Noah do?

local skilled nursing facility not permitting visitors/family with new day-glo signs put up - you see a little wash stand outside bottom left I had to use ('for 20 seconds!') - then nurse had to come out and take my and pt's temp with those IR based thermometers

all this for something that (as far as I can tell) has a mortality rate very close to seasonal flu

Went out - Fry's [Kroger] closed 1hr early, went to 24hr Walmart (closing/closed), went to other 24hr Walmart (closing in 15 minutes!).  I'll start to get anxious if the local taco shop https://www.losfavs.com/  * isn't open.

It is fun to watch ....  The mentally and emotionally handicapped are doing exactly what our educational system, lamestream media and politicians trained them to do.

Thinking just isn't on the list of desirable characteristics or actions.

Last week our reporter from Seattle told us they have run out of toilet paper.
With strong encouragement from me based on reported intimidating situations cropping up in her face, she began shopping for a handgun (she is quite competent with them, just between weapons.  The shopping was enlightening.  Supply VERY LIMITED. Prices astronomical.  So I aimed her at Sportsman's Guide, but then she had a lot of telephone calls before finding a local FFL dealer who would complete the transaction for her.

THEN she ran into finding fuel for the bullet launcher.
UNOBTANIUM.
Running out of ammo for sale is a step up the evolutionary ladder over running out of toilet paper.
I shipped some to her.  Nice to have extra when family calls.

Posted at the small mining town Fry's self-checkout:

(https://i.ibb.co/jTP98fR/20200318-095009.jpg) (https://ibb.co/W64NH5t)

So, according to https://www.watertiger.net/disinfect-wells-and-tanks/ , [1000 gal (4550 L)] of water is disinfected by [6.5 ounces or 12 tbsp (180mL)].  My cheapo bleach is 96 FL OZ = 3 QT = 2.84 L.

SO, keeping with English units my one cheapo bleach container will disinfect

(1000gal H2O/6.5oz)  *  96oz  == 14, 769 gal H2O

They mention if water is cold then wait two instead of one hour after mixing.

Addendum from the website:  "If you are treating water from a lake, stream or shallow well, use twice as much of 5% household bleach as indicated in the chart below and wait twice as long before drinking, as it is more likely to contain chlorine-resistant parasites from animal droppings."  So only about 7, 300 gal can be disinfected if you want to be really safe.

Going in and out of various hospitals transporting patients it's interesting how my temperature has varied from 89oF to about 98o F at their checkpoints.  These are IR (I assume) thermometers mostly where they aim it at your forehead but the most recent one was under the tongue of the person in front of you ... then they stick it back into this slot which apparently sterilizes it, pull it out, and stick it under your tongue.  Next time I'm there I'm going to ask for a rectal reading with their reusable thermometer, THEN we'll check their temperature orally with it after the quick in-and-out from the the sterilizer slot in the machine.

(https://i.ibb.co/DC0jk8B/20200322-215706.jpg) (https://ibb.co/DC0jk8B)

My temp after taking one one sip of cold drink and waiting 'til thermometer 'beeped' it was done.  Same thermometer minutes later 97.2o F. 

Edit:  Apparently, the device they stick it in puts a new plastic sheath around the part that goes in your mouth.

Dr. Strangelove:  ... a computer could be set and programmed to accept factors from youth, health, sexual fertility, intelligence, and a cross-section of necessary skills. Of course, it would be absolutely vital that our top government and military men be included to foster and impart the required principles of leadership and tradition. Naturally, they would breed prodigiously, eh? There would be much time, and little to do. Ha, ha. But ah, with the proper breeding techniques and a ratio of say, ten females to each male, I would guess that they could then work their way back to the present Gross National Product within say, twenty years.

MI6, are the doctors in your area doing actual CV tests? Here they are only testing medical personnel and sever cases. Calling it CV after they rule out the flu and the common cold.

My niece is a nurse. Got this info from her. She went home sick today. Praying she is ok.

I'm still here, just checking in every other day because of battery power, which is normal. I'm "sheltering in place", which was previously called "being a hermit". Only one case in my county. Lots of political action though. I will have to go out sometime in the next two weeks. Peace, Love & Brotherhood to ALL!

I don't know.  Next time I'm picking up pt at a hospital I'll ask - most interactions are with RN's, LPN's and CNA's at pickup and dropoff.*  It seems all these people are testing positive for CoVID-19 but no one is mentioning what kind of test, false positive rate etc. 

* - the following has been enhanced but never happened anyway
---
I did call two DON's (Director of Nursing - the head honcho - La Jefa 's in this case) at two of the SNF's (Skilled Nursing Facilities - pronounced 'snif') after getting a call from [largest non-profit health system in the state] Corporate asking:

C:  Are you accepting COVID-19 positive patient transports or CoVID-19 pending results patients from hospital to facilities?

Me:  Ummmm ... good question.  What's the latest on how contagious this thing is?  Is it like the seasonal flu?

C:  I don't know.  We're Corporate. 

Me:  Well, maybe if we tasked one van only handling these 'possibles'.

C:  OK, we'll put you down as a possible transport provider.

Me:  Well, mayb.. [click].
---

After this I immediately called the DON's if they accepted COVID pt's and if I were to transport a pt with COVID-positive to a facility then pick up one of their pt's in same van would it be OK?  It was basically 'Not only NO, but HELL NO."  These SNiF's are around 99 bed facilities - no problem accepting 'Contact Precaution' pt's - C-Diff, MRSA, VRE (rare).  They are 'one-stop shops' - you have your long-term folks - they are living there, then you have my pt's I bring back for PT (physical rehab - car wrecks, strokes, infections that need IV antibiotics), OT (outpatient therapy) and another acronym I can't think of.  But the S will HTF if just one resident tests positive for CV - i.e. media etc. - it's a very serious PR thing with these facilities now.

---

Enough acronyms!  Quiz your niece nxt time:  What does 'PRN' stand for - the actual Latin!  Also 'NPO', the full names of MRSA, C-DIff - this is what I look up on smart phone while waiting for removal of PICC lines, central lines etc. - no one ever knows!  They just know what it means which is all that really matters, but still - PRN = 'as needed', usually related to oxygen flow from a tank in Liters per minute (LPM), NPO = 'nothing by mouth' etc.

Next time someone asks you "Why do you have 5000 rnds of ammo?"  Just tell them, "PRN."

"Pro re nata is a Latin phrase meaning in the circumstances or as the circumstance arises (literally "for the thing born").[1] It is commonly used in medicine to mean as needed or as the situation arises."

PHOENIX Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has issued a stay-at-home order for residents of our state, set to go into effect Tuesday at 5 p.m.

[...]

The order states that Arizona residents must limit their time away from home except when involved in "essential activities," work or volunteering in "essential functions," using any services or products provided by essential businesses, and employment if they are a sole proprietor or family-owned business who works in an office separate but is not open to serve the public.

There's probably going to be another run on the mostly re-stocked stores - even though anything like that is considered 'essential'.

30-minute wait at drive-thru at only family-owned White Castle west of the Mississippi - pt had heard about from movies and I had time:

One of the major freeways in PHX after stay-at-home enacted - but don't go to bars (closed) or gentlemen's clubs (probably closed - staying 6 ft. away kind of puts a damper on things anyway) - everything else (food, gas, and just about everything I do when I go out) and you're fine.
(https://i.ibb.co/yyW24YK/20200401-153221.jpg) (https://ibb.co/yyW24YK)

     Got a third call from a hospital wanting to know if I transport CoVID-19 pt's - I said since the SNiF's we deal with aren't accepting them I can't take the chance of transporting a CoVID pt then next transporting a pt to them and then that pt tests positive and then Media gets ahold of the info and then ...
     I asked them how many positive pt's they had (this famous hospital has nothing to do with the product produced by Hellman's for sandwiches  :mellow:)  Well, they had one.  Early 20's, ambulatory [can walk] - they called me first time when discharging and I told them at that time we're not set up for it.  Pt apparently walked home (5mi.) - although I mentioned to caller if it had been me as soon as I stepped out of the hospital I would have called a cab or Uber - caller mentioned that's probably what happened. :rolleyes:
