The most immediate felt economic impact from people on the ground perspective is the entertainment industry and all of the jobs associated with them.  This includes sports, music and public performances of all kinds.  I have friends in the music industry and they are not happy, but it is a tight wire of caution and economic impact of people's livelihoods that we must walk.   Quite frankly it is a lose lose scenario and I would not want to be one of those that have to make such decisions.  I am most definitely blessed to have a job that I could work from home if need be, but my heart goes out to those that are not as fortunate.

The roach coaches that came to my place in So. City/Brisbane used to rotate. They all got their coffee from the same urn but one lady, we'll call her Tuesday, kept her truck cleaner and her coffee was amazing. All the other guys you could tell just gave the steel urns a rinse and let the funk build up and their coffee always tasted like day-old folger's.

What lifesavers those trucks were, in those industrial parks with nothing else around.

WTF do you want ?  Do we go back and change the name of the Hong Kong Flu ?  Give me a break.  Find another reason to be outraged by Trump.  There are plenty of real ones.

And FWIW, I was one of the first people in the US to get the Hong Kong Flu in the middle of September 1968 at age 15.  It knocked me out of school for a month.  It morphed into pneumonia IIRC.   I never did return to school in California as we were moving to Philly in November.  The wife went around and signed me out of all of my classes for me.  Broke her heart. 

I've also had measles, mumps and chicken pox.  There were not any vaccines for that stuff way back then.  I lived through them, just like most others back then did, too.

I'm always going to call it the Hong Kong Flu.  So I guess you have yet another reason to call me racist and xenophobic.

You're reading wayyy more into it than I said. Calling it the Venice Flu would have had the same effect: It's happening someplace else.

Goddamned coffee robots. You ask for decaf but they give you caf every time. Betcha they're here illegally...

The cats will simply eat you before they starve to death.

Can dogs contract or spread coronavirus?

Dogs can contract certain types of coronaviruses, such as the canine respiratory coronavirus, but this specific novel coronavirus, aka COVID-19, is believed to not be a threat to dogs.

The World Health Organization reported that there have been no reported cases of coronavirus in domestic animals. “At present, there is no evidence that companion animals/pets such as dogs or cats can be infected with the novel coronavirus COVID-19,” their report says.

BTW, in doing some searching for her return flight on Southwest this time, there are plenty of $66 flights from CLE to LAX coming up at the end of the month and though at least April

There are several promising drugs that are approved for "other" things that may help with Covid-19, but the biggest hurdle for everything in the US right now is testing.  The drugs work MUCH better as an inhibitor, so early detection is key.  Right now, you need to show deathbed signs or be famous to get a test early enough (in the US) to consider options.

There has been some success in treating this virus with plasma therapy.  Blood plasma with antibodies has been taken from survivors and then infused into those sick with the virus with great results.  One patient's plasma is able to treat three others.  Much like things were done back in the stone age before antibiotics.  This is how we were able to treat Ebola recently IIRC.  

I have no link as I heard it from a doctor on a FNC program a day or two ago.

I'd read something about that yesterday I think - I don't remember where.  I believe it is being developed by a Japanese pharmaceutical company.  There were apparently favorable, anecdotal findings, but nothing published yet.

It's starting to ramp up here. I have a bunch of friends spread over the UK, France, Germany and Italy (we often go on holiday together) so it's been interesting to hear the different experiences. Our Italian friends have taken their kids up to their hut in the mountains (school is closed anyway). 1000 deaths now in Italy. In England the doctor on the team is pretty frazzled but has great faith in the NHS to deal with it. Everyone else is doing home office. Here in Germany, just got an email from the school that the kids should make sure they are connected to the school's cloud to be ready for remote learning from home (isn't the internet a great thing?) and the official call this evening is to avoid even private gatherings.  I am getting online advertising offering 30 different kinds of toilet paper...

U.K. Shields Its Economy From the Virus, but Not Yet Its People
As the total number of confirmed cases in Britain rose to nearly 500, the country’s aggressive economic rescue plan had contrasted starkly with its public-health response to the epidemic.

A top U.S. official said the nation cannot process coronavirus tests as quickly, easily or in the same volume as other countries — even as the virus spreads to 44 states — and that’s “a failing.”

“The system is not really geared to what we need right now, what you are asking for. That is a failing,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Thursday at a hearing on the nation’s preparedness for the outbreak.

“The idea of anybody getting it easily the way people in other countries are doing it, we’re not set up for that. Do I think we should be? Yes. But we’re not,” Fauci testified.

The virus has now spread across 44 states and Washington, D.C., Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, announced during the hearing. (...)

“The truth is we’ve under-invested in the public health labs,” Redfield said. “There’s not enough equipment, there’s not enough people, there’s not enough internal capacity, there’s no search capacity.”
