Australia’s coronavirus infection count spikes 41% in 24 hours to 199 - as terrifying map shows the true scale of the chaos

As many have noted, it is summer in Australia, and summers in Australia are hot.

So much for the idea that warm weather will damp down the pandemic.

Wasn’t until tonight that I began to recognize that feeling in the air. I don’t mean the warmer weather, I mean that feeling one gets in the back of their mind if they live in an area prone to major weather disasters. That feeling that says shit’s about to get real and the natives are starting to get restless. Usually whenever I get this feeling, it’s just before or shortly after they announce that a hurricane is headed our way. And it tends to herald the beginning of a panic as people start bugging out for “safer” places.

I’ve a sneaking suspicion that this hotel is gonna be a ghost town before month’s end.

So I see that “California and Washington” is a trend on Twitter… and it’s about Trump’s latest derp about restricting movement in the US.

He’s ignoring that NY has more confirmed cases and that earlier tonight it became clear that the virus is in the community in Texas.

Also of note, twitter trends are now absent of “covid” and related terms.

The “trends” are just a work. Intentionally pumping up entertainment and sports to sell favors to large companies, that’s what twitter is all about.

Like most of his brain farts, it’s a day late and a dollar short. The time to consider travel restrictions was weeks ago, when the first cases began cropping up on the West Coast. Putting any sort of stop on domestic travel at this point would not only be pointless, but it would actually further the economic panic as everything from gasoline sales to domestic carriers would be affected.

Oregon just closed its schools state wide starting Monday.
Closure is planned for two weeks.
Gov Kate Brown:

“However, I have heard from superintendents, school board members, teachers, parents, and students that it has now become impossible to functionally operate schools due to workforce issues and student absences. Schools are experiencing critical shortages in staff, and superintendents are concerned for school personnel who are at elevated risk such as those over age 60 and those with underlying medical issues.

NM schools will be closed for 3 weeks starting Monday. No, I don’t know why they don’t just close them tomorrow.

My choir is on hiatus. I brought gifts to my section leader/Grand Poobah of the choir and her wife to thank them for their awesome work and to thank them for the utter joy I’ve had singing with them and the choir. I fear we will never sing together again.

There will be no opening day for baseball. Over the years I’ve drifted away from the sport, but there has always been something about opening day. And it breaks my heart we won’t have one.

I don’t wish this horrible illness on anyone. Even the fucking assholes who helped put us here.

I can’t believe we’re living in The Stand. I wonder if good and evil will show up and gather the troops.

Some patients who recovered from Covid-19 have suffered reduced lung function and now experience problems such as gasping for air when walking quickly, Hong Kong’s Hospital Authority has revealed.

The authority released its findings on Thursday after observing the first group of discharged coronavirus patients.

There are 27 cases of coronavirus in Panama

The Minister of Health, Rosario Turner , reported this March 12 that there are already 27 cases of coronavirus in Panama, most of them patients 40 years of age or older.

The figure has doubled in 24 hours: last Wednesday night, the minister counted 14. The escalation was as follows: on Monday, 1 case was announced; on Tuesday, 8; on Wednesday, 14, and now, 27. All, according to the minister, are Panamanians.

[…]

131 contacts have been investigated and 27 tested positive for Covid-19, said National Director of Health Nadja Porcell.

The infectologist Xavier Sáez-Llorens explained that when speaking of intimate contact, it is the person who was less than a meter away from a person with symptoms and, in general, they are family members and health personnel who attended to the patient. Direct contacts must be isolated and monitored. He said that these people cannot have the coronavirus test if they do not have symptoms.

[…]

So 27/131 “close” contacts test positive.

This suggests that we here in the US are grossly under-testing.

This is an interesting development from Ghana:

Two cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in Ghana, according to Kwasi Agyemang-Manu, the country’s minister of health.

Agyemang-Manu disclosed this at a press briefing on Thursday.

He said two persons who came into the country from Norway and Turkey tested positive after laboratory tests from the Noguchi Memorial Institute of Medical Research.

“Both individuals returned to Ghana from Norway and Turkey. So these are imported cases of COVID-19,” he said.

thecable.ng

That tells me pretty clearly that there’s a high likelihood there’s ongoing community spread in both Turkey and Norway.

I really can’t say I’m an introvert, otherwise I wouldn’t feel comfortable working in the service industry. It’s more a consequence of my work schedule, since working graveyard means that I don’t really get a full two days off. Hence why I usually spend the one truly full day away from work lazing ‘round the house, as I’ve little motivation to do much besides catch up on the rest I’ve been missing.

On the other hand, if I got stuck at home for 2 weeks without the option of leaving, by day 3 I’d be climbing the walls.

When we look at the unusually high death rates in Italy, especially compared to the rest of Europe thus far, it makes me wonder if:

1) Air pollution is a factor; the Po Valley has the worst air quality in the EU.

2) Italy has the second oldest population in the world, only behind Japan. Italy is basically a retirement home.

I’m just speculating, of course, but the combination of poor air quality and a large elderly demographic cohort could account for why we’re seeing such a high CFR in Italy.

My position is if you’re looking for a solid buy signal within the market data, you’re looking in the wrong place.

Because everything in the market right now is being driven by a mathematically chaotic event.

Let’s assume you’re an epic level finance analyst and knowing all the key stats and players surrounding every major corporate stock is your jam. Well, you have a very high degree of uncertainty about which of those key players will be alive next quarter and how all the stress our system is under will break and reshape society.

Some sat photos of Qom, Iran might reveal the truly horrifying scope of the COVID-19 outbreak there.

Here’s a link to the article with the photos: vox.com

The first photo is a general overview of Qom. If you look towards the top of the first photo, you’ll see the Beheshte Masoumeh cemetery.

The second photo is a closer view of that cemetery. If you look towards the right of the photo, you’ll see what looks to be a newly-opened section of the cemetery, with a big white dot off to the left of that section.

The third photo is, more or less, a close-up of that newly-opened section. You’ll see what looks to be freshly-dug burial trenches and that big white dot looks to be a small mountain of lime.

This would be indicative of mass graves for the dead - and according to local doctors from Qom who are speaking out (regardless of the official line from Tehran), they likely have 500,000 cases and tens of thousands of dead. There are apparently surreptitiously-taken videos of these mass graves in Qom and videos of the deceased basically piled like cordwood in local hospitals.

Presumptive positive case of COVID-19 at Camden County hospital

A patient at a Camden County, Ga. hospital has a presumptive positive test for COVID-19.

According to the Coastal Health District, the Southeast Georgia Health System - Camden Campus was notified of the presumptive positive case late Tuesday evening by the Georgia Department of Public Health. The test result is considered presumptive until the CDC completes a confirmatory test.

A 29-year-old female from Charlton County came to the Camden Campus ER with respiratory symptoms on Saturday, March 7. The Southeast Georgia Health System states the patient was screened according to guidelines. She was treated and released.

According to the health system, the patient returned to the hospital on Monday, March 9, with worsening symptoms. The health system states the patient has no travel history or known exposure to COVID-19. The physicians made the decision to isolate her and requesting a test.

Here’s a story that has snuck under the radar: Here in Southern California, Hunter-the-Lesser, disgraced and now out of Congress, opened up his seat when he left.

It’s a Republican stronghold, the last one, in the region. Because its the home of the religious right in San Diego county (remember, the Institute for Creation Research started here.)

Well, Car Thief, former US Representative from the rich part of the county, decided to run for this district in the eastern part of the county, though the Thief himself is not from there.

The current results, with 77k ballots yet to count in the county (not all will be in this district):

AMMAR CAMPA-NAJJAR 62,201 36.78%
DARRELL ISSA 38,210 22.59%
CARL DEMAIO 34,621 20.47%
BRIAN W. JONES 18,996 11.23%

Ammar is a Democrat (and of course is the subject of all sorts of bigotry from the Republicans.) Car Thief is second. Demaio is one of those wingnuts who is atypical, being openly gay. Jones is also a Republican and state senator.

So the district is clearly Republican.

And unless there is a miracle, Car Thief is going to find his way back into Congress.

Greece:

Yamarellou: 34 new cases of coronavirus - At 133 in total

In fact, 10 out of the total 133 cases are “orphaned”, meaning they do not belong to the family-friendly environment of the cases we knew from the outset.

Infectious disease has estimated that Greece has now entered the third phase of the coronavirus spreading, where “orphan” outbreaks are observed.

Google translate uses “orphan” because that is a literal translation of the Greek, but obviously what is meant is cases without a related contact that can be traced.

Australian Home Minister Peter Dutton has been diagnosed with COVID-19; interestingly, he met with AG Bill Barr and Ivanka Trump about six days ago.

Australia’s Minister for Home Affairs Peter Dutton announced on Friday that he has tested positive for the new coronavirus, which causes a disease called COVID-19.

In a statement on Friday night, Dutton, 49, said he tested for the disease after waking up with a temperature and sore throat.

Dutton was in Washington, DC, last week for a conference with other representatives for the Five Eyes intelligence alliance, which consists of the US, UK, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada.

businessinsider.com

Mr. Dutton is the person standing to the right of Ivanka Trump in this photo.

Looks to me like the White House is a COVID-19 vector and probably Mar-a-Lago as well. The number of cases who have had contact with Administration officials and personnel isn’t just some kind of a rounding error or uncanny coincidence.

The UK, Ireland, Germany have all come out with expectations that a majority of their populations will contract the virus in the next year.

The lethality is still being debated, but if it is 1% in the big picture, then indeed we’ll be looking at around a 1% drop in the population faster than expected.

Most will be old, expected to die in the next 5 to 10 years, so in the big picture the population dynamics won’t be that big.

However, if one of the victims is close to you, you’ll still suffer the loss of a loved before they would have died otherwise.

The know-nothings just don’t get it. Of course, they are know-nothings.

Consider this: every bed filled with a COVID-19 patient is a bed that is not available to another patient needed for a different problem.

Every ambulance which is busy taking a COVID-19 case to a hospital is not available to ferry another person in need, and said conveyance will need to be sterilized in between transports.

Elderly health care providers are in danger, the ones with the most experience. Italy has now lost their senior doctor for this disease… to the disease.

Yeah, I haven’t spoken about it until now, but I’m worried for my folks. Not only are both on the cusp of retirement, but they’ve both got health conditions (dad has angina, mom is diabetic), long-time smokers, and both are still working jobs that are physically taxing. Doesn’t help that they’re stubborn as mules, refusing to see a doctor until they’re so sick that they can’t ignore it any longer. My dad’s had bacterial pneumonia twice, both times refusing to seek medical help until it was bad enough that they had to give him the stronger antibiotics. And the cherry on top is both are on a cocktail of various drugs, which means they’re at risk for dangerous drug interactions if there’s a medical emergency.

And yet, both are also convinced that this is all a bunch of needless hysteria, that the whole thing is “no worse than the flu,” and if they get it they’ll just have to spend a few days at home before they can go back to work.

re: #80 Targetpractice

It is illustrating, how many Americans don’t think these things through.

The impact on health insurance providers is going to be astronomic. Thus insurance rates are going to go up.

Americans still don’t realize that other places in the world provide health care as well or better than here in the US. See Japan and South Korea, who so far have been able to keep lethality lower than say in Italy, both because they’re more hardcore about containment but also because they have had sufficient spare capacity in their health care system.

The people in Wuhan were not so fortunate. Death rates are high there, because they got overwhelmed early. Health care providers were among the victims.

We don’t carry much spare capacity in this country because of the attempts to keep costs low, to make profits.

Indonesia confirmed its second death linked to COVID-19, a 59-year-old man who died on Wednesday (Mar 11) as he was being treated at a hospital in Solo City, Central Java.

[…]

The Moewardi Public Hospital, where the man was treated, told local media on Thursday that the patient had no history of travelling overseas. He also did not come into close contact with foreigners.

[…]

Obviously he had to contract it somehow.

We humans are mobile, and travel long distances. Viruses hitchhike on us.

A nuance on the “dogs cannot get Covid-19” news that I have not seen discussed; their fur can have the virus.
When you return home from being out and about, assume you are contaminated. Take off your outside clothes and wash your hands correctly.
Don’t pet doggo with the wagging tail and soulful eyes first. You can contaminate their fur. You are a bigger threat than they are.

the most scripted of presidential settings, a prime-time televised address to the nation, President Trump decided to ad-lib — and his errors triggered a market meltdown, panicked travelers overseas and crystallized for his critics just how dangerously he has fumbled his management of the coronavirus,” the Washington Post reports.

“Even Trump — a man practically allergic to admitting mistakes — knew he’d screwed up by declaring Wednesday night that his ban on travel from Europe would include cargo and trade, and acknowledged as much to aides in the Oval Office as soon as he’d finished speaking.”

Julia Ioffe: “Some 63 million Americans voted for a man who wanted to smash the system to smithereens, either because they felt it wasn’t doing enough for them or because breaking glass just feels so primitively satisfying. Or maybe it’s because the Republican Party has been peddling a dystopian anarchistic anti-government pipe dream to them for the last four decades. Now, it turns out, a functioning government is a good thing to have when a global pandemic arrives on your shores. It turns out that maybe reforming an imperfect system is wiser than just taking a sledgehammer to it, better to trust people who have dedicated their lives to being public servants than trashing them in favor of a one-man, megalomaniacal savior, better to have a functioning system than dancing on its rubble while crowing about the death of the ‘deep state’—or ‘the political establishment.’”

“To those 63 million Americans, I say this: you wanted to smash the system and you got what you wanted—in spades. Now we will all have to pay the price.”

Australia’s coronavirus infection count spikes 41% in 24 hours to 199 - as terrifying map shows the true scale of the chaos

As many have noted, it is summer in Australia, and summers in Australia are hot.

So much for the idea that warm weather will damp down the pandemic.

Trump’s statements were never based in reality. They were all part of his reactionary know nothing approach that has guided him all the time. He doesn’t listen to experts. He ignores anyone who doesn’t tell him what he wants to hear.

And right now, that’s having disastrous repercussions. He has slow walked testing. So instead of admitting that he has to do better, he attacks… Obama. Obama didn’t fail on pandemic prevention. His actions were a lesson in how to respond to a crisis and adapt on the fly.

Heck, this is agile process 101. Initiate process, develop responses, have metrics to measure response, and retrospective to learn what can be done to improve process.

Trump’s doing absolutely none of this. Agile (or scrum or kanban) are all business processes. Trump the businessman isn’t doing ANY of that. He’s just continuing to blame others for his failures, compounding failures, lying about absolutely everything, and he endangers everyone on the planet with this bulkshit on a stick.

Why do I say that last bit?

Because once covid19 has a foothold here, it’ll be here indefinitely. Countries that have managed to contain the spread through aggressive testing would need to keep Americans out. If they let down their guard, they’ll face new outbreaks thanks to our dumbass Trump. This is why a pandemic is so dangerous.

You have to not only think about the steps now, but what happens down the road too.

Trump has failed the math of this outbreak.
Trump has failed the logistics of this outbreak.

Trump has failed, and we are going to be paying the price for a long time to come.

When future scholars study this pandemic, they will certainly note the importance of testing, and how woefully the US failed in getting ahead of it. Thanks Donald.

“Both countries saw their first cases of the disease called COVID-19 in late January. South Korea has since reported 67 deaths out of nearly 8,000 confirmed cases, after testing more than 222,000 people. In contrast, Italy has had 1,016 deaths and identified more than 15,000 cases after carrying out more than 73,000 tests on an unspecified number of people.”

re: #121 Smith25’s Liberal Thighs

All public and private schools shutting for two weeks starting Monday, and the third week is Spring Break week.

We are going to our “Virtual Day” procedure we use for snow days. We have an online learning platform, and all of our students have computers(some school issued). I’ll be doing some livestream classes and the like over the next couple of days. We are really only in school today to prep the students on what each individual class has as plans to handle the next two weeks.

Much the same in Kentucky. Counting Spring Break, the kids will be out of school 4 weeks.

This Washington Post column criticizes Biden for an ad that they assert has manipulated images. Fighting fire with fire?

If Hillary had been elected President, the GOP probably would still be in charge of both Houses but it’s possible that the WH pandemic team would have intervened at an early stage and stopped coronavirus before the disease started its deadly march throughout the world. OTOH, it is still likely that by the time anyone outside had heard of the outbreak, it was too late. We would be living with a pre-Trump Republican Party that commanded respect and deference throughout the media. The GOP would be claiming that their approach would have done a better job of protecting us during the pandemic and the public might have fallen for it.

But now, if we are fortunate, Trump’s clear malfeasance abetted by the entire Republican Party could lead to a sea-change in Washington, with Democrats finally taking control of the Senate and regaining the upper-hand with the judiciary. The fascist rot that infests the entire GOP is open to all to see — and this ultimately may do more to facilitate a progressive agenda than a Hillary victory in 2016. This may ultimately lead to M4A when we finally realize that it’s the only solution to dealing with a health crisis we are now facing.

Due to nature of international travel and geopolitics, we’re seeing people at the upper echelons of government and business getting infected (or being identified first because they get tested first). That follows where Iranian ministers/parliamentarians were infected and some have already died. International travelers were the initial vector.

Good morning. Welp, feeling a cold coming on. So I can’t go to work. This sucks. Pretty damn unlikely it’s anything but a cold. But rules are rules.

The American Orchid Society had one of its big annual shows in Santa Barbara this week. They pulled the plug. Which makes sense. But all the exhibitors were there. The wife and a crew of four people had set up a massive display. 20 feet wide. Full of some of the best examples of Orchids available.

Which will be torn down before anyone sees it. Except for this photograph she took.

She even got interviewed by an NPR reporter. No word on when that airs.

There’s an unfortunately not subtle growing hostility to actual democracy in the Berner ranks. They can’t accept that Biden beat them at the polls. My hope is Biden is a great President so they learn something from the bs that Sanders and his allies have fed them about the democratic process. It’s not our fault that Bernie is a rigid ideologue.

And there the best description of why Trump is an awful President and why Biden will be a good one. Biden’s open minded. I’m drawn positively to him precisely because he’s not an ideologue. He’s got a core set of principles but he’s not dismissive of other people. That’s why my vote last week was easy.

And because of Trump’s refusal to be tested for COVID-19, it’s entirely likely we - and the rest of the world - will first hear about it in a breaking news alert, something like, “President Trump rushed to Walter Reed due to respiratory failure”.

With an update 24 to 48 hours later, “President Trump in critical condition, reported to be on a ventilator”.

Will a detailed medical examination find a number of GOP Congressmen up his anus and also a set of strings apparently leading to Russia?

The “land mass” elite, aka “hinterland gentry,” is the heart and soul of the Republican Party. Besides bigotry and steady loss of privilege their maniacal desperation is driven by another, perhaps more important but seldom mentioned factor: Generational decay. We all know the self-made local rich guy whose children and grandchildren turned out to be drooling idiots.

today’s electoral-vote.com

Some politicians, however, are taking a slightly longer view; thinking less about this week and this month, and more about what happens when people try to cast their ballots in November. In particular, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), for whom election security and ballot access have always been something of a crusade, is thinking in this way. He has filed a pair of bills in the Senate, one that would provide $500 million to states to help cope with voting-related disruptions caused by COVID-19, and another that would make voting-by-mail nationwide and mandatory under certain circumstances.

My new concern. The Senate races.
Turning senate seats blue is going to require turnout. Reduction in candidates campaign events favor the incumbents. Voter registration activities will be reduced virus concerns and social distancing measures. GOP run states reduction in polling places, causing massive delays/wait times and long lines will also be a further impediment to turnout during early voting and on election day.

Phone banking. Even more effective than “events.”

What type of testing did she favor? I could see limiting the testing to (1) people with symptoms and (2) people in direct contact with someone who tested positive.

I’m assuming it’s those. I tend not to get in too many arguments with them.

What concerns me, though, is that we’re not going to “flatten the curve” without testing as many people as possible. By the time you’re testing for symptoms, they’ve already infected many others when they could have been quarantined. And I just don’t think she gets that.

And I have a question I’d like to ask some politicians, here and around the world. Namely, what’s Plan B if your measures don’t work? What then? Do they just say, “Fuck it, let ‘er rip!” or what?

LOL, we’re boned here in Czech Republic:

Although Prime Minister Andrej Babis (YES) announced on Thursday with great fanfare that Prague has opened new places since Friday where people can get tested for coronavirus, they still do not work and in fact, failed completely. The news brings the story of Mr. P., who tried Friday to get tested at the Central Military Hospital in Prague (UV), but in vain. It has been proven that he has, in fact, come into contact with other infected individuals.

Doctors sent the man with the symptoms home, and nobody was concerned about him going by public transport.

I have heard the tests have a high false positive rate among asymptomatic individuals. Which is why they do multiple tests.

This study found up to 50% of asymptomatic individuals may be false positives. This probably argues we need better testing, but also large scale testing of healthy individuals may do more harm than good.

The aftermath of the Black Death in Europe was a little over a century of prosperity and peace. Now, that’s not saying that Europe didn’t get its hair mussed, ya know, with 40% to 60% of its population wiped out, but if you were in that lucky half that survived, there were considerable improvements in your living standard at that time.

Oh, and she thinks she may now be recovering from a mild case of coronavirus. Last week the doctor, after phone consultation, sent her for testing for strep throat.

And, her and husband are getting ready to close on selling their house, while also breaking ground on their new home build. Which, as you can imagine, they’re starting to wonder how the current situation might effect access to workers.

Sometimes, it’s bad when a false positive occurs, and there are times when it’s ok. When your spam filter checks your email, it’s better to have fewer false positives.

Not sure that’s the case with a rate that high you could be sending half the country into unnecessary quarantine. We are already doing all the things recommended for flattening the curve. Limiting large public events, closing schools having those who can work from home, social distancing etc.

There is no cure so doctors are just treating the symptoms whether you have a positive test or not.

Here’s my idea of what happened (totally fictitious):

Andrew, being an African America, was responsible to supply drugs to the party (that’s where all of America’s drugs come from) where Katy Perry and Hillary Clinton were going to appear, and they were all (all the Dems in attendance) going to partake in stabbing effigy cakes and eating human flesh, probably from aborted full term babies and elderly Christians, since they’re all Satanists and closeted lesbians.

And the coronavrius is a lie to make the dear President look bad, since it can be cured with either Jim Bakker’s or Alex Jones’ super secret colloidal silver, but the librul FDA and other deep state commissions want it off the market to watch the population diminish (because they hate life and God) and create more dependency on government.

And for the record, I only made up about 10% of that. The rest I’ve heard stated as fact, labeled under “things the Democrats don’t want you to know,” or “things Tucker Carlson told me,” or “The News,” meaning Fox.
