I would love to be there and say... "Well your a nasty human being .. and i'm able to answer a question professionally if asked!" Thank goodness for Freedom of Speech.

Wth.. Melania!!! ..how the hell do you put up with this.
I’m sure Melania is just as nasty and vile as he is. Birds of a feather. I don’t know why she gets the poor victim card except she is white and supposedly attractive.

ETA:Not you giving her a pass the media.

Can I just say thank you @Chicoro for being a beautiful beacon of light in this. Your words really are so encouraging in this thread. I swear I can feel your positive energy as if I'm in the room with you.

And I do agree with your assessment about the current scale of this. Due to the lack of large scale testing, I truly believe all countries have under diagnosed the virus. Not on purpose or with malicious intent (at least I hope not) but due to the fact that there aren't enough tests and therefore they are selecting who to test (money>symptoms in this case). The fact that so many NBA players are testing positive with no symptoms is telling. Based on the criteria of which patients are being listed as high risk, they should be excluded (young men, not many underlying health conditions, excellent immune system) but they have it. And the fact that it takes so long for the test results to come back, you have to track contact back probably 3-4 weeks. For a regular person, that's easily 100 people from just general passing. A celeb or person in power, 10x more.

If wide scale testing with quick result turnaround becomes available, we really are going to see this ramp up. There are too many symptomatic people showing up at the ER and being negative for flu to say otherwise. At this point, having symptoms and a negative flu test should automatically have the test done.
Thank you, you are sweet. I appreciate it.

I am here in France, completely alone, in isolation. All of you are my beloved family. I'm serving as a kind of dispatcher. I feel like that lady in that cult film, "The Warriors".

meditating, praying, isolating, 1000 mg vitamin c daily, 3000 if feeling ill, multi vit daily, today hair spa day, TV, reading, crafts, etc I'm staying home as long as I can, and my vitamin regimen keeps me away from the flu without a flu shot, for at least 5 years with kids in school, and sick people around me at work and at church. praying over everyone I hope we can get though this as soon as possible. So far my I feel calm, and I trust my gut.

I respect this man's information. I've been following for about 1 to 2 years.

He is a scientist and I follow him for body building techniques. He always provides scientific based information, with supporting documentation when he give information about exercise.

The things he mentions are things that many of us already have like turmeric, cinnamon and lentills.

He said he got off a call with a doctor in Italy and several other scientist on a conference call round table. From that, he put together this diet for his subscribers. I think you will like it!

It is very do-able.

That's a shame.
But we can't let that mess up our game.


Focus ladies. Make sure you have what you need in terms of supplies and food for your families.

Have you ever gone on vacation, cleaned your house and made sure that when you came back you had towels and an organized, neat home waiting for you? That's a fabulous feeling.

Well, I'm suggesting that you get towels ready and a get your stuff ready in case someone in the house, you or a family member falls ill. Have that stuff in a basket, out and ready so you don't have to look for it when you are ill or preoccupied with the health of a loved one.

Expect the best. Plan for the worst. Expect the best.

There is [supposedly] an eleven (11) day lag behind Italy. That means, it may be possible for the US to be where Italy is today, in the next 11 days. That will be around March 31s to April 1st, 2020.

Remember, this virus doubles every five (5) days. One of our members said cases double daily. I trust her.

Well Cuomo has made the call. All non-essentials need to stay home beginning Sunday afternoon. That includes my DH. So now he will be home with the children and I beginning on Monday. Lawd help us!
I'll keep working from home as long as I can. Now he can help with the homeschooling.
I keep saying how surreal this is. I think I'm operating on shock & adrenaline...just doing what I have to do to prepare for the worst.

Does anyone know when the lockdown is supposed to "end" in California?

Of course its subject to change - just curious if they are communicating an end date.

I think this move is going to save a lot of lives. He made a good decision. The weekend is coming. You can exhale a little bit in a few more hours.

Based on other countries, I'd say in a minimum of 2 weeks. That two weeks timing corresponds when you are most likely to see the biggest spikes in cases. Thus, I doubt it will be over in 2 weeks.

I cannot believe Italy has more deaths than china and we arent even sure if they are on the downside of this thing smh.
I think China likely has had more deaths than they reported. But, I can't substantiate that. It is merely conjecture on my part. Which boils down to plain old, my opinion.
China is also ghetto with it.
They have been snatching people off the streets (like physically), arresting those without masks and who were refusing to take one, or go home, yelling at people on loudspeakers who were not at least 6-10 feet apart, and really not letting people decide...they were enforcing it extremely strictly. They have cameras everywhere including facial recognition and patrollers strolling all day. I think that helped. Kinda like from those apocalyptic disaster movies...but they were not playing games.
In the US, people are still not taking it seriously at all.

Soon, they may not have a choice.

For those asking what's up with Russia...

Sharp increase in Moscow pneumonia cases fuels fears over coronavirus statistics
Maria Tsvetkova, Polina Ivanova

MOSCOW (Reuters) - A reported sharp increase in pneumonia cases in the Russian capital and contradictory information around the issue is fuelling fears about the accuracy of official coronavirus data which remains much lower than many European countries.

Russia, which has a population of 144 million, has reported just 199 coronavirus cases and some doctors have questioned how far the official data reflects reality, given what they say is the patchy nature and quality of testing.

A sharp spike in pneumonia cases in Moscow, Russia’s biggest transport hub and a city with a population of around 13 million, has further raised doubts.

“I have a feeling they (the authorities) are lying to us,” said Anastasia Vasilyeva, head of Russia’s Doctor’s Alliance trade union.

The government says its statistics are accurate however, and President Vladimir Putin has complained that Russia is being targeted by fake news to sow panic.

About
About the Event 201 exercise
Event 201 was a 3.5-hour pandemic tabletop exercise that simulated a series of dramatic, scenario-based facilitated discussions, confronting difficult, true-to-life dilemmas associated with response to a hypothetical, but scientifically plausible, pandemic. 15 global business, government, and public health leaders were players in the simulation exercise that highlighted unresolved real-world policy and economic issues that could be solved with sufficient political will, financial investment, and attention now and in the future.

The exercise consisted of pre-recorded news broadcasts, live “staff” briefings, and moderated discussions on specific topics. These issues were carefully designed in a compelling narrative that educated the participants and the audience.

The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, World Economic Forum, and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation jointly propose these recommendations.

A man started talking to me while in line at Costco. He says he has friends high up in law enforcement. Apparently the national guard is being dispatched as we speak and the whole country will be on mandatory quarantine starting Sunday.
Thanks for the intel, @caribeandiva !

Ladies, if you don't have what you need, you may need to consider going and getting it today.
