Moby,

Each of the countries you mentioned have less than 500 new cases per day with the exception of UK.  Yes the virus is not gone (including Italy with a couple hundred per day) but these numbers are, or should be well within track trace and isolate requirements.

Above 1000 and it gets really dicey.  Forget 40,000 which is an impossible task.

Hi BC, I appreciate ( that other than the UK ) cases are lower, but look at Germany

1,700 cases  at one plant resulting in 360k being (re)locked down and and a lot of angry people who may not do the right thing and prevent spreading the virus ..

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jun/24/west-germany-district-re-enters-lockdown-after-new-covid-19-outbreak

It's not gone away and cleary has the ability to swamp us, if not careful

We'll be back, EU ..and as a certain 'gentleman' couldn't accept my offer to 'bury the hatchet' .. Don't trust a clueless Californian 'business owner' who cannot even quote me, honestly ..

Moby,

You are looking at success and not a failure.  The cluster was detected, tracked, traced and follow up done, including a localized lockdown and a ton of new testing. Other measures are being taken as well.

Again, the individual states have responsibility for protecting public health. Some US states have limited contact tracing capability, and that fact is showing in higher numbers. 

The best contact tracing not only identifies those in the first ring (having contact with an infected person)  but the second ring too (those who had contact with the first ring).  This second ring could be an order of magnitude larger in numbers, even more in many cases. 

Some of the current Federal legislation proposes to increase contact tracing significantly.  Instead I would prefer what was done in the old days of Civil Defense when we had plans for fallout shelters. etc.  It is too late for COVID-19, yet my opinion is to train in advance select government employees, especially those whose jobs would not be needed in the next pandemic (e. g., park employees, librarians,....).

Gator,

a lot is being learned as we go along.  Just heard that at least here, use of the overhead bins in aeroplanes has been banned with all luggage checked free to destination.  Actually quite nice as folks will stay in their seat until it is their turn to deplane.  Prevents the big huddle where everyone stands up at once digging for their luggage and compressing folks in the aisle.

At its peak in early April, Florida was reporting about 1500 new cases per day.  That stat declined to 300-700 per day, enabling reopening in phases starting in early May. 

Rates increased to 1,000 per day, and grew slightly until Phase 2 of the reopening starting in  early June.    Then the rates accelerated to 2,000....3,000......4,000....setting a record yesterday of 5,000.  Today, the number of reported new cases is almost 9,000!!!! 

The age group reporting the most infections is the 25 - 34-yo range.  Today the Governor has banned the sale of alcohol at bars. 

[deleted graphic as it blew past the margins]



Maybe the accelerated COVID infection rates is made worse by enclosed spaces.  The summer heat has driven us Floridians to air conditioned spaces.  In contrast, many of our restaurants and bars had open-air seating in the winter. 

Let us hope the fatality rate of today's COVID remains low as experienced so far.  IMO this is due to evolutionary selection (not hospitalizing nor killing the host enable more spreading)

The next two weeks will be telling.

But the bars are allowed to stay open? What are they going to serve? Milk and cookies?

That's pretty shocking figures and it looks like it's going to get worse in the US.

In the UK we could soon be following the US. It's like they just don't care anymore about the virus and are rushing to reopen everything. I personally think the gov have been told it's just a case of relaunch the economy and whoever gets it and dies does so. I reckon tgeghave been told they don't really have a choice now.

I think the number will rise above R and one way or another the world is going to have to ride this one out, either through it becoming less deadly, vaccine or eventually doing everyone in.

Patient 91: How Vietnam saved a British pilot and kept a clean Covid-19 sheet

There are Western trained doctors and dentists in Vietnam so I'm sure he got the best treatment since he's a high profile case in the country. Vietnam borders China and reports a few hundred infections and zero deaths. My mom keeps up on Vietnamese social media and she says it's a lot worse than they're reporting.

When you didn't believe the figures, previously, I asked a Cypriot mate of man who's married to a Vietnamese lady .. She seemed to believe the numbers . may be she's gullible, but the pilot is certainly grateful !  ;)

Yeah, I'm not sure I buy all the difference between countries with some countries seemingly faring so much better than others. Some countries the virus seems to behave so much differently that they are virtually immune from it, lol.

There are probably reasons for variations but I'm not sure the variations account for such a big difference between those where the virus seems rampant and those where it hardly seems to touch anyone.

Ukraine is now stating they are getting over 1000 cases a day. I think it's conceivable that some countries will be affected later than others but there is the case over differences in recording it I guess. I reckon some countries economies are too poor to endure much if any of a lockdown so they decided they just have to get on with it best they can and make out things are all ok.

Looking like things are looking bad in the US:

I'm not sure if they will hold it together out there if things continue at that rate.

Indeed, I almost forgot, how long are you into your current stay Mobe?

Yes I can see the UK following the US. Don't worry though Mobe I'm keeping up my use of protective gloves and medical grade face mask :)

This may end up the start of a whole new world order.

When the village was on lockdown ...we could walk down the middle of the road....no cars)

If true, and other non-political studies aligns universally, the tragedy in this is, there could’ve been so many more people that could’ve been saved.

I’ve said before, if only one life is saved, it’s one life worth the effort. I wish those who politicized and campaigned to demonize this treatment, be infected, fall gravely ill, then rely to the same to save their own.

The US is now closely tracking with the LANL pandemic model’s worst case scenario!

see below:
http://covid-19.bsvgateway.org/


If the current trend continues, we will more than double current confirmed cases by mid August (approx 5.7 million)
and then we’ll be just 6 weeks away from flu season when this thing “EXPLODES”
this country is gonna be COMPLETELY phuqued 6 months from now!!!

THE END!
DAS VADANYA MFers!!!

Derek Chauvin is as guilty as sin, and deserves every bit of punishment coming to him. He not only murdered George Floyd, he manage to also murdered the trust, unity and respect within the entire US society along with it.

Beyond this, social/civil politicization of everything else that shadowed this unfortunate tragedy is asinine.
