  2. Finally....it was on my local news that the five suspected cases that were from Travis AFB came negative. Whew!
  3. https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/backstories/870/ More cases on the cruise ship in Japan. https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20200212_37/ This is something about the 24 day incubation period...says there was one case. https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20200212_30/ A quarantine official has also been confirmed to have the new corona virus. The ministry says virus tests for 53 more people came back positive for 29 passengers and 10 crewmembers. They include a girl aged ten to nineteen-years-old, the first patient in this age bracket.
  4. https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.02.06.20020974v1.full.pdf If you scroll to page four it has some interesting information: Abstract Background: Since December 2019, acute respiratory disease (ARD) due to 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) emerged in Wuhan city and rapidly spread throughout China. We sought to delineate the clinical characteristics of these cases. Methods: We extracted the data on 1,099 patients with laboratory-confirmed 2019-nCoV ARD from 552 hospitals in 31 provinces/provincial municipalities through January 29th, 2020. Results: The median age was 47.0 years, and 41.90% were females. Only 1.18% of patients had a direct contact with wildlife, whereas 31.30% had been to Wuhan and 71.80% had contacted with people from Wuhan. Fever (87.9%) and cough (67.7%) were the most common symptoms. Diarrhea is uncommon. The median incubation period was 3.0 days (range, 0 to 24.0 days). On admission, ground-glass opacity was the typical radiological finding on chest computed tomography (50.00%). Significantly more severe cases were diagnosed by symptoms plus reverse-transcriptase polymerase-chain-reaction without abnormal radiological findings than non-severe cases (23.87% vs. 5.20%, P<0.001). Lymphopenia was observed in 82.1% of patients. 55 patients (5.00%) were admitted to intensive care unit and 15 (1.36%) succumbed. Severe pneumonia was independently associated with either the admission to intensive care unit, mechanical ventilation, or death in multivariate competing-risk model (sub-distribution hazards ratio, 9.80; 95% confidence interval, 4.06 to 23.67). Conclusions: The 2019-nCoV epidemic spreads rapidly by human-to-human transmission. Normal radiologic findings are present among some patients with 2019-nCoV infection. The disease severity (including oxygen saturation, respiratory rate, blood leukocyte/lymphocyte count and chest X-ray/CT manifestations) predict poor clinical outcomes. medRxiv preprint doi: https://doi.org/10.1101/2020.02.06.20020974.

  5. This was on my local news last night...they said the confirmed case was accidentally released and brought back but supposedly was not around any public at any time.
  6. https://news.yahoo.com/sixty-more-people-confirmed-coronavirus-050418396.html Brings the total on the Japan cruise ship to 130.... https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/02/breaking-washington-doctors-successfully-treat-coronavirus-patient-with-experimental-anti-viral-medication-significantly-improved-in-hours-video/ https://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation-world/national/article240078853.html There were three bases to begin with...now look at how many.
  7. This article says it originated in the United States. https://simran-spanish-influenza.weebly.com/origin-of-the-spanish-influenza.html This one says China. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/news/2014/1/140123-spanish-flu-1918-china-origins-pandemic-science-health/
  8. So, you remember the evacuees who were brought to Travis AFB a few days ago....this was just on my local news. Five people who were evacuated from Wuhan, China and quarantined at Travis Air Force Base have been confirmed "symptomatic" and transported to local hospitals, the CDC confirmed.
  9. They just did an update on our local news. 178 passengers landed late last night and are now being housed at Travis AFB and will be quarantined for 14 days from the time they left the Hubei district. One child on the flight had a fever on the plane and is at a local hospital being monitored. There were actually a total of 350 people brought out on two flights. The remaining people are being flown to Miramar Marine Corp Air Station. Hopefully everyone will stay well....
  10. Mt. Rider I’ve seen those numbers lately too. I had no idea they were so high.
  11. https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/04/asia/coronavirus-japan-cruise-intl-hnk/index.html [Tokyo (CNN)Japanese authorities are racing to contain a possible outbreak of the Wuhan coronavirus after it was revealed that an infected passenger flew into Tokyo and spent a few days aboard a Princess Cruises ship, forcing authorities to lock down the vessel and quarantine thousands of people on board. The ship, the Diamond Princess, ended its planned 14-day itinerary early and is currently docked off the coast of Yokohama, not far from the Japanese capital. Medical officials are going room-by-room to check each guests' temperature and medical condition, Japan's health ministry said in a statement. Several passengers have reported feeling ill, and the tests to check if they contracted the virus will take four to five hours, the ministry said. Of the 31 people who have been tested for the virus, 10 cases tested positive for the virus, Japan's Health Ministry said. Authorities are still waiting for the results of more than 100 other samples. Passengers and crew were initially required to stay on board until at least Tuesday night, but it appears they may be there longer. Japanese health officials said more passengers than expected need to be temporarily quarantined while being tested, and it could take another day to finish the screenings. ] This is part of the article...the part I highlighted is a bit concerning. Am I reading that right? 31 tested and 10 are positive?
  12. So...this morning the number of deaths was 305 and this evening it’s 362?
  13. I am not going to panic. I’ve already started looking at what we might need more of if we need to shelter in place. My job is unfortunately not a good one for social distancing, lol. I should put something on a loop that says “Cover your mouth when you cough.” Ever had a 4 year old stand right in front of you and sneeze and there’s no time to react? That’s my life. I’ve actually stayed fairly healthy this school year. I’ve only had to take 3 sick days...I wash hands repeatedly and wipe down my room every day. That being said my small program has had the flu A, impetigo and hand foot mouth roll through in the past three weeks because our kids have siblings in every school in the district and...we have visiting scholar families from many countries...including China (several of whom have come in the past month). So...yes...I will keep myself educated because it’s not just me...I have three family members in their 80’s and hubby with a compromised immune system who I wouldn’t want to bring home the germs.
  14. The first death outside of China has just happened (Philippines). I agree Mt.Rider that we probably have nothing to worry about with a good hospital system....but, just as you are the queen of scenarios , I am the queen of letting my imagination run wild...... As the California cases move north (Santa Clara) and get closer....and the government has decided to use Travis Air Force Base as one of the places to house people who have potentially been exposed....I’m having a hard time reining it in. Travis is a 15 minute drive from me. https://www.abc10.com/article/news/health/travis-air-force-base-coronavirus/103-0a2fc65f-9be1-4083-843d-06784634db95
  15. I don’t know. Looking at that link is really unnerving. When I saw it for the first time on Tuesday the number of cases was less than 7,000...today that number is over 14,000. The number of of deaths was 160...today it’s 304.
  16. First case of it in Northern California.
  17. This page is put out by John Hopkins. It seems to give numbers in real time around the world.... https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6
  18. I don’t want to be concerned but every time I read something I feel a little more concerned. I live in a very international community because of the local university and my classroom has kids from many other countries. Right now the preschool I work at has had a bug rolling through for the past two weeks that has made everyone sick (I’m home today with it)...we’ve had classes with as few as 6 kids...instead of 16. Our district finally put out a notice to all families that they have to have a doctors note to return to class and are cleaning our classrooms this weekend. We had one child return yesterday from China after being there for two weeks. Makes me really nervous. Why would China quarantine such a large city if the death toll is only 25? Is it because it’s happening faster than normal or perhaps those numbers aren’t true?
  19. What a beautiful baby boy!! So awesome that you rescued him...
  20. Love it!
  21. Hey everyone! I just spent the last hour catching up....haven’t read posts on this thread since May. So many things happening in everyone’s lives. Ann, so sorry to hear about Grrr. And MtRider...sorry to hear about your goat. Its really interesting to read how lives are changing for the core group on here. I turned 59 today and I am feeling it on some days. I have decided one more year teaching and I’m done. I just hope I have the stamina to make it one more year. I have a much smaller garden and I was looking at my canner and realized I haven’t pulled it out in over two years! If I do any preserving it’s only small batch water bath or dehydrating....heavy things are getting harder to handle and I can’t do any long hours of preserving. I am harvesting daily from my garden...but I just don’t have the energy to do anything ‘big’ anymore, ya know? I’ve been on summer vacation for 3 weeks and enjoying our unseasonably cooler weather. People in my area (Northern Ca) had pool waves from the 7.1 quake down south. I didn’t feel anything that day...but this morning I had vertigo while laying in bed...this has happened to me before....usually not while in bed...but if my feet are on the ground. I really hope there isn’t another bigger one. My mom is going in for hip replacement surgery on Tuesday...after 8 different appointments over the past two weeks...I was beginning to wonder if it was a good idea with all of the tests they did on her because she is higher risk at 84. But...her pain is so bad even while sitting that I hope this will help her. After she comes out of rehab her doctor will be trying a med to see if it will help with confusion...I think I said something about it a few months back....I was getting 10 or more calls a day (and night!) where she was trying to find or was seeing dead family members or thought my kids were little and lost....then found out she was calling others too. Her doctor has tried changing some meds and she had a UTI...it helped a bit...but she seems to get lost more everyday. And some days she just snaps...my mom never yelled at me...now once or twice a week she just goes off over something I said or did. It’s difficult to stay calm, ya know? Anyways, I know I don’t post a lot but I do try to keep up. I wish we could all live closer so we could age in place together...
  22. The original notice several weeks back did include my county...but my city was taken off the list the night before. I don’t know why. However, the smaller city that’s a 15 minute drive away was included. Their power was off for 6 or 7 hours. People in my city are buying or discussing buying generators (on a parent FB page)...many moms are concerned because they have freezers filled with breast milk. Another notice was recently on the news for the city of Manteca. It feels like the language in the notice is a bit stronger.... https://www.mantecabulletin.com/news/local-news/be-ready-survive-2-5-days-without-electricity/ https://www.abc10.com/article/news/people-in-this-town-are-pissed-manteca-mayor-rips-into-pge-rep-at-meeting/103-abddbf57-af39-4492-842f-f44fbb59c936
