Truth.

In general governments would be better off getting the bad news out as quickly as possible and trying to be clear on what they don't know. Hard for a bunch of people who like to think they are in control. 

 
And let the masses know how incompetent they are in 'protecting' them? Despite BILLIONS spent on obsolete planes, tanks and weaponry? Nah, they'll go down in lava flames before admitting they are NOT in control. We're on our own.

Thanks for this, Dave.  Very timely & necessary to get more information & perspective.

 
NYT is reporting that exact scenario in China. Cancer patients can't get chemo, for example. Non-coronavirus patients have already died waiting for treatment. Blood supplies are critically low, due to demand and to fears of cross-contamination. There's a suggestion there could be as many, or more, non-virus deaths than virus deaths, due to lack of treatment.

We like to imagine our system is superior, but right now I have little confidence. If coronavirus patients overwhelm the resources, how do you decide who gets treatment? If coronavirus-control takes precedence (to reduce its spread), other patients will die from all the other treatable things people can die from. If you treat those patients, the coronavirus could continue to spread. Even at less than 2% mortality rate, that's hundreds of thousands of deaths.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't. I think tonight's a good time to open a good single malt...

Personally I would go with P100 filter masks but then I use them all the time while doing woodwork and auto wrenching.

The US economy is about to take a hit but overall I reckon the health system should protect Americans.  Some other countries with fewer resources and even stupider politics will not make out as well.

A friend from Taiwan reported that he was delayed on his way to work because his coffee cup set off the fever monitor. They are scanning everyone as they enter the subway system.

Australia doesn't seem very proactive or prepared, but the government is invoking emergency powers if needed to quarantine people. Can't remember if I told you or not, but a green grocer in town was closed for a month - he went to China for a couple of weeks and was asked to self-quarantine for two more weeks when he got back, even though he wasn't near the outbreak. That is really hard on a business. It was great to see the other customers welcoming him back and checking that he was ok.

I am seeing people from Seattle tweet that they can't get tested for COVID even if the have all the symptoms. Then they have to decide whether to stay home or possibly infect others. Hard decision when you don't get any sick leave. I don't know how the US will manage if the worst case scenarios for transmission happen.
 
We will continue to not be responsible as individuals and do the prudent things we should to curb the spread and then blame anyone who does not agree with our political views on why it is getting so bad.  It is the American way.{#Lol}
