  1. NY Post reports that EMTs are no longer taking cardiac arrest patients to hospitals if they are unable to be revived on the scene.
  2. China will be revising their reported COVID-19 numbers to include asymptomatic carriers.
  3. This stood out to me in this oped piece about Germany's CFR and why it is way too early to draw any conclusions regarding the numbers. Patients have only recently entered hospitals. On average, a severely ill Covid-19 patient dies 30 days after being infected.
  4. Regarding cell phones in China. If you don't have a cellphone, you are pretty much unable to engage in normal activities. You have to have it to do every day things because it's a virtually cashless society everything is mobile payment. And it's even more critical now as you have to show your health status on your phone as to whether or not you are permitted to freely move about. I was over there in 2018 before they started allowing WeChat and Alipay to be linked to a foreign bank account in late 2019. It was just a lot harder because they don't want cash. In many places, it's impossible to get a taxi without a phone because no one will stop for you.
  5. I saw this article today questioning China's reported numbers because of the number cancelled cell phones.
  6. I'm so sorry. Prayinng for you.
  7. This is helpful for those in your circles who just can't process the math. I don't know how you can make it any more obvious.
  8. (US) Homeowners who have lost income or their jobs because of the coronavirus outbreak are getting some relief. Depending on their situation, they should be eligible to have their mortgage payments reduced or suspended for up to 12 months.
  9. Well, apparently, they are early releasing prisoners now.
  10. A little OT, but the irony. I had to share it with the Hive. I flipped open SOTW which had been on pause while we were full bore prepping for Science Olympiad. This is where I left off. (Ch. 20 if anyone is looking for it.)
  11. It looks like some newspapers have started removing their paywall for coronavirus coverage. I did notice that NYT will require that your register but just opt out of subscribing.
  12. I lost track in reading all the updates. Wasn't sure that this was posted already. CDC issues new guidelines to postpone or cancel all events > than 50 for the next 8 weeks.
  13. CA Gov orders self-isolation for everyone 65 and older. Orders all bars, nightculbs, etc closed. Restaurants to operate at half capacity right now. Although I expect this will become more restrictive in the next day or so after what Dr. Fauci had to say today about being prepared for a 2 week nationwide lockdown.
  14. This was an excellent curated list of resources teaching KIDS about coronavirus from The Kid Should See This. So much in the media is not appropriate for kids. Helping kids with anxiety resources from Harvard Health For preschoolers: For elementary: An this excellent gif for those who still aren't taking this seriously and need a good analogy:
  15. This was really eyeopening visual simulation of the effect of a quarantine and social distancing. Very useful as we are such a visually oriented society now.
