Another interesting chart. Germany's figures look strange .......


A UK doctor has a daily update on world stats, and lots of good info. He mentioned about 3 weeks ago that Germany was counting the deaths as what the original disease was. If they had diabetes and died WITH CV-19, the death certificate stated they died of diabetes. Maybe that's the skew in their numbers. Gotta watch those Germans.  :laughkick:


Those dang Germans ........skewed for accuracy.

Thanks, Louis.  I was interested in the deaths per million stats.  U.S.A is NOT at the top of that.    .....still a LOT of deaths but eases the heart a bit to know it's not yet decimating our huge population.  :pray: 


It sounds like for most, comorbidity factors played a part, no matter what pushed them over the edge.  Then there is the cytokine storm thing.... 


MtRider  :(  Hope people take personal responsibility seriously as we open up.  {well, some of us do!}

Right now I just wish the medical field would open up.. I never dreamed that doctor's offices would shut down like this. People still get sick and need a doctor, Not the ER. We are really having a hard time and just running around in circles trying to get DH the help he needs because of the Corvid 19.  If we don't get the proper care for him soon, I am afraid he might not make it.  He gets so out of breath now on exertion, he can hardly get across the floor.  He is in bed asleep now.  Family doctor said he wanted an ultrasound of stomach, well he has already had 2 of them while in hospital. So why another one. This is all they do. Go around and around and avoid the problem while he is suffering.  I am now at my wits end as what to do next. 

I hope and pray no one else is having to deal with this type of thing.  


The stats I am looking at above are bad. This Virus has killed so many and I am afraid that as we start to open up again that things will start to get worse again.  I give it maybe 2 months before we see what is going to happen. Already when I ran to store to pick up a couple of things and some fruit for DH, people are not keeping their distance and only a few were wearing mask.  One other besides myself was wearing gloves that I saw. This isn't going to be over for a long, long time.

Hubby and I are not so much afraid of catching the virus as we are of being named a "contact" that they are tracing from somebody else.  Personally, it's our belief at this point that they are after the DNA of every person in our country...if they can find a reason to get it.  We're trying to avoid shopping at any of the big box stores if we can.  The other shoppers seem to think that if they're wearing a mask they don't need to practice social distancing.  Our state is opening up...carefully...and the cases are continuing to drop.  The governor said today that the only reason we saw a spike was because a couple of counties didn't get their case reports in on time.  Then today...listening to the "drill" the Senators put on Dr. Fauche (sp?) and the rest of the task force, seemed to me they were trying to tell all of us that THEY DON'T KNOW DIDDLY SQUAT about what is going to happen when all these state open up. One of them (can't remember which one) said this virus is going to be "in the world" for a very long time and nobody knows when it will come back around.  So now...what are people supposed to do?  Live in fear?  Hide? Let somebody come stick a swab up their nose every time they're "suspected" of having it?  The "regular" flu season will follow the allergy season...and then it will be a mess with every politician trying to do the money grab and hospitals calling everything "covid 19"?  End of rant.

Classic example would be the young man in Kappy's neighborhood who wasn't worried at all cuz he's young = invulnerable ......until his older parents pointed out that HE LIVES WITH THEM! 


Clearly we are globally on a wretched balancing act that not all of us are going to win.  If not COVID, then economy, or emotional damage, or political undercurrents, or ......???

Thanks Ambergris, for the population of states with the death count.  That always gives a better perspective on how bad a state is being hit.  Like Connecticut.   CO just went over 1,000 death count.

Littlesister, from what you've said, it sounds like your husband needs a port of some kind to properly keep that fluid drained. I'm sure he would feel much better. Not to mention his health. Most times it can be inserted as an out patient and then you can drain it as needed at home. Poor guy must be miserable and I know you are worried sick. I never thought I'd see the day doctors offices would close either. I don't have video conference capability. I'm wondering if this virus is the reason my doctor is retiring in July. It's hard to tell her age but I know she is younger than I am. Then again...who isnt. :pout:


Added a thought, wonder if they could use a shunt or stent of some sort to drain directly into the bladder or someplace? Just thinking out loud. 



We2 I agree about wanting to swab everyone. Doctors, hospitals and clinics want to get as many positives as possible so they can ask for government assistance. I think they are trying to harvests our DNA too. 

That started with those home ancestor kits. D-ex did one. :rolleyes: he wanted me to do one so our grandson could have the info when he is older. I said the only way I would do it is if grandson had some illness and our ethnicity results would help him. Otherwise...no thank you. I said let me guess what yours said. You are primarily 80% German, English, Irish,  10% Eastern European, 5% Scandinavian and 5% Neanderthal.  He was amazed at my accuracy. Well since we are Caucasian and that's where most of the people came from to settle this country, it only makes sense. Oh yeah. :blush:  He is one quarter native American but that wasn't picked up or menrioned.  Ack, I'm off chasing squirrels again. Focus!.


I heard where they want to start going into people's homes and testing for the virus. Why. Tap into government money if they find a trace of it and pad the medical fields pockets. Same reason hospitals are eager to say a person died from covid-19 even though they really died from a heart attack. $$$$


I'll do anything I can to keep them out of my house. I'll step on the porch or in the garage. Anything to keep them out of my house and seeing what all I have stored up. 


I think they are opening things up too soon. I'm almost certain the virus is going to spike again in a couple of weeks. I'm getting a grocery haul in before Monday so I can stay in another couple of weeks. On the other hand how much more can our economy stay afloat if we don't open soon.

On Wednesday evening, Tampa epidemiologist and chair of the USF Department of Internal Medicine Dr. John Sinnott participated in a live, online conversation with Dr. Mohsen Milani of USF’s Center for Strategic and Diplomatic Studies regarding COVID-19 called “The COVID Crisis: From ‘What If’ to ‘Now What?’” Sinnott’s insights touched on the 1917-1918 Spanish flu (“Much of what we learned in 1918 we’ve managed to forget by 2020”), latex gloves (“They remind you not to touch your face...but don’t be handling them, because they could be covered in virus”), and the “herd-immunity” approach being used in countries like Sweden (“They’re taking a big chance”).

Sinnott noted that the Tampa area has been dealing with the original Chinese strain of the virus, which has a lower mortality rate (about 2 percent) than the strain seen in New York (about 7 percent mortality), a mutation that originated in Milan, Italy.

Sinnott also dismissed theories that COVID-19 was a man-made infection, though he noted that the current crisis demonstrates how unprepared the country is for actual bioterrorism.

When asked about a return to “normal time,” Sinnott compared the COVID-19 crisis to 9/11: “We will never return to normal after this,” he said. “There’s going to be a catastrophic depression. People will be full of fear about being infected. It’s going to take us longer than we think.”

He added, “If we do everything right, we can probably stop wearing masks in 2022.”

Dr. John Sinnott’s Recommendations for stemming the COVID-19 Impact
“The No. 1 thing that’s simple to do: If you don’t have kidney or liver disease, you should be taking 4,000 units of vitamin D daily. I can’t clear infections if they’re low on vitamin D. Do I take them every day? Religiously. Two small capsules.”
“No one should be around other people, outside their family, without a mask. At a grocery store Saturday night, the woman in front of me was sweating profusely, coughing and had no mask on. Masks don’t just protect you; they protect other people from your droplets. And she was coughing everywhere. I just left the store.”
“You should be washing your hands every hour. You don’t know what you’re touching.”
“Avoid elevators. They’re crowded and pneumatic with dramatic changes in air pressure, and an ideal place to pick up a virus.”
“At a grocery store, you see people pick up an item and put it back on the shelf. That virus can live three to four days on that can. [After purchasing,] I will spray that off with a solution of alcohol, or alcohol and Windex, just let it dry, and then it’s nontoxic.”
“Outside, when you’re around someone else, I want you to think of them smoking a cigarette. Where would that smoke go? Envision that smoke as coronavirus. It’s clearly spread by speaking, and it’s clearly airborne.”
“People should not take Motrin, Ibuprofen, Aleve or any of these non-steroidal groups of compounds. They should only be taking Tylenol for their aches and pains.”
“Finally, people should follow public health recommendations and, in the fall, get the influenza vaccine and the pneumococcal vaccine.”

I tried to quote Ambergris and WE2s but couldn't get it to work.


To me "the kind" Ambergris is referring to  means this: We all know there are people who learn from reading and observing  the experience of others and there are people who learn from having the experience themselves. DH has a relative like that. If it's not happening to her or someone she knows, it's not happening. She has to physically or emotionally experience something to believe that it can happen.

DNA harvesting...  population control....  money grubbing... scare tactics.... it all seems plausible to me.   :hidingsmile:


I’m not going to quit wearing my PPE.  Nope.  If others don’t care about their health, that’s their problem.  If they don’t feel it’s a real threat, that’s their problem.  I’m near the Mexican border, right now. I am doing everything I can to not get anything that may be going around this area.  BTDT.  :groooansmileyf:


So far, I’ve seen children wearing mask, but, not the parents, really?  :shakinghead:

IF (big IF) you get any sort of immunity from this by having had it....then I'd rather get it now before it mutates into something  more horrid and all the handwashing wrecks my immune system for all the nasty bugs.  It isn't going to magically disappear over time, and it will be years before there is a vaccine.  


That being said, we are being careful and not leaving the house when we do not need to and I hate interacting with people even before COVID.

Oye!  This is a very short vid showing how virus can spread .....not even the airborne affects....at a smorgasbord cruise-type meal.  This means community/church potlucks too.   Family dinner at Grandma's house. 


The 'victim' applies a cream to her hands that will show up in black light.  She and tablemates are wearing eye protection ......cuz we all touch our face/eyes too much.  Of course the cream was transferring readily  [more than a bacteria/virus????] but it sure shows the transfer.

I posted on what are you doing today about DH.  But this will fit in on here I think.  My friend said that they have been trying to figure out why the ER is empty of patients that need to come to ER. Said they are afraid to come to hospital and some are at home dying because they can't get the treatment they need. Things such as stroke and heart attack and other illnesses as well. She said that DH did what needed to be done and took the chance and the protocols  to come to ER and be admitted. But then while in hospital the ball got dropped and no one did anything for him.  One would say it's his kidney's another it's his liver and another it was something else, etc.  He came home in worse shape than when he went in. all do to the corvid virus.  He tested neg. and never got the call from hospital after the results were in to come to the hosp. and get admitted to a regular floor. Again they dropped that ball. So now we are going to have him direct admitted through his heart doctor. No corvid floor like they tried to do Monday when I took him back to the ER.


No wonder no one will go to ER.  And yes a lot of people that would have gone there might just have been admitted to the corvid floor though they may not have had the virus.  You are NOT suppose to be admitted to that floor unless you are showing signs of Corvid. If you have a temp. which DH did not have, They are suppose to do the test and send you home IF you are able to wait till test comes back.  It took 24 hours for the test results the way we had it done in ER.  So this is going to be the new norm and yes we are going to have to fight for better care because of this.  I do understand the why's but not the way they are treating NON Corvid patients.  Seems the doctors and hosp. staff are so afraid of catching it they don't want anyone in the hospital that might put them at risk if they are not on that corvid floor.  A lot of doctors will not open up the offices for patients to be seen.  I am thinking the new norm will be virtual visits by cell phones. My phone will not do that and unless they want to buy me a new phone, I am not putting out the money for one.  So they can open up the office and take the precautions.  When we did see the heart doctor we both wore our mask and twice before getting into the office we had our temps taking. So no excuse.  Our family doctor has it set up for seeing patients. You stay in car and call the number they give you and they check you in by phone. Then when nurse is ready to call you back, they call you on the phone to come into office and straight back to exam room.  All doctors can follow that protocol. There will be no one waiting in the waiting room. You must stay in parking lot in your car till called to come in.

I've had parking lot visits and have had doctors postpone/cancel visits on me.  Have also been told to go check myself into the hospital (and didn't go for exactly this reason).  DS1 has had some video medical visits.  It's going to be the new norm.  It's also going to save some dollars on maintenance personnel--don't think the health care industry hasn't considered this angle.

I have to go to my OB every other week and he sees me in person (I have to have an ultrasound every 2 weeks due to health issues)  my DH always comes with me.  We have to jump through hoops at the front door, but it is fine after that.    My therapist sees me on video chat and that works out, but my hearing impaired child still goes in to see her therapist because she has trouble communicating (hearing) him over the phone.   My GI doctor does the video call thing and my nutritionist just calls me on the phone.     


We did not take DH to the ER when he burnt himself b/c we didn't feel like the RX cream was worth the crazy.  I do not like the video calls.  I feel like they are the equivalent of me googling my symptoms and it makes me extremely less likely to make medical appointments unless there is a very clear need for Rx.  I also do not like the 'call me in the car mechanic.'  I forget my phone half the time and this is bound to cause issues in the long run.  Also, I hate it when they take my teen kids without me and then make appointments with them without looking at my schedule.  I'd almost rather not have routine care than deal with that.

Hmmm...Russia just climbed the ladder. 


And poor Yemen is at 85.....kinda using that country as a meter for how fast even smaller nation can multiply [since it stayed allegedly at ONE for so long].  Population around 30 million.  So not too small. 


Colorado's governor has declared tomorrow as a remembrance for the 1,091 [and counting]  people who have died.  Govt bldgs will have red lights on....or something.  But I like his slogan:  EVERY NUMBER HAS A NAME.  :sigh:    Yes, and many who mourn each person.

It's also going to save some dollars on maintenance personnel--don't think the health care industry hasn't considered this angle.


DH had a tele health visit with a doc the other day.  I have to wonder how much they are charging the VA for this?  As much as an office visit?
