    No social distancing here...

    I started seeing these yahoos a week ago. Not sure how long this has been going on. Don't think it's all one family.

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    Exactly this. One addendum from my perspective: testing a reasonable percentage of cases to track the actual spread (vs flu etc) remains useful, and Gene sequencing a subset of those will be good to follow the mutations and genetic drift of this thing to see if more or less problematic variants...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    The problem with the super optimistic timeline is that it is not based on any facts in evidence. We all want to be able to pack the Churches on Easter, but let's not consider it reasonable. This thing is ramping up. Rapidly. What is just beginning in NYC is preparing to play out on the national...

    I am professionally interested to hear how long it takes to get a result. Please let us know. And I am sending good thoughts for a negative result. She's in my thoughts. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    If he ignores the fear that is out there, he's not helping. If he accepts that people are afraid and tells them ways to take some measure of control in their lives, he gives them a strategy to deal with the fear. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    Not at all! It's what in press terms is called a softball question. Any decent public official should be able to use that question to pivot to something useful and say something like: "It is normal to feel scared, for our loved ones, our friends, our communities, but we need now to focus on...

    The concern is with the contents in the box carrying the virus. The idea is over several days any virus put there by Amazon handlers will gradually inactivate. I consider this a low risk scenario but I wash my hands immediately after handling incoming shipments. Easy, cheap, safe. Sent from my...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    Any statement that starts with "It's just the flu..." is a disservice. Sure, it's a respiratory virus just as influenza is, but this thing ISN'T the flu. It's novel, and we don't have any endemic resistance to it. When a new "flu" goes around, some of them are much like the other flus that we've...

    Yes, this is a very important part of the global response. I'm aware of multiple efforts doing exactly this, as well as looking at the human immune responses to see how our bodies are reacting immunologically. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    There has been lots of propaganda to go around. Anyone remember "It's just a flu"... But wait there's more: And cut off on the bottom was "March 9: This blindsided the world." So yes, lots of propaganda out there... Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    This doc may be a lucky one. In a couple weeks, when the ER is overwhelmed and other docs are sick or dead from the disease, folks like him will have their pick of positions as hospitals clamor for docs, nurses, and other workers. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    We are nowhere near the point where we will have had an appreciable effect on infection rate! Not even close! If we want to get a handle on this we need to stay strict until the curve tapers off. My guess is all the way through April at a minimum. Then, we can use gradual lightening of the...

    I agree we need to accelerate things. I don't agree we should jump in and use the drug widely yet. I'm in the drug development business and some of my methodical approach comes from this. Believe me, I have five or six good friends who are front line docs fighting this thing. Most of them...

    There is lots of data to use in a study like this. Dosage variations, with or without antibiotics, and so on. So far today worldometers reports nearly 6000 new cases in the US alone. So, in two weeks we could have very solid real world evidence, for this drug and several other already...
