Since the federal govt seems to be behind the curveball of coronavirus spread, states are taking the lead. State of Illinois just closed all bars and restaurants effective tomorrow except for takeout food. 20+states have closed all public schools for at least 3 weeks. I believe this will keep accelerating. This disease doesn't care if you are liberal or conservative, stop listening to the bs and take this seriously. If we all act responsibly, we can get past this quicker. Just as an example, there are a total of 600 total icu beds in the entire state of ny. Right now, 60 of them (10% of all) are taken up by coronavirus patients. Imagine what it will be like in another 3 weeks. This is the time to be an alarmist and be wrong rather than be  complacent and be wrong.

It seems odd that New State has over 57,000 hospital beds and only 600 ICU beds? I would think NYC alone would have more than that with a city population of 8 million.

I found this. This seems more realistic.

New York has approximately 53,000 hospital beds, and about 19,000 are unfilled as of Friday.

The state has just more than 3,000 intensive care beds, according to numbers released by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

I think I read the same is happening in Illinois tomorrow, except drive thru can be open.

Unfortunately it will take such drastic actions by authorities because we cannot depend on the average American to just do the right things voluntarily.  Those of us in the higher risk category cannot depend on the majority to do the right things, so we need to isolate ourselves to some extent to try to avoid all of those "who's afraid of a little virus, I'll do what I want" folks and especially the folks who know they are sick but still go to work or to public venues where they spread their diseases far and wide.  It might get a bit boring to stay home most of the time, but it's not something that bothers me.  Catch up on my reading, play some games, finally get a pass from the Mrs. to not go to the gym, tinker on various projects around the house, take some naps; I'm a simple man and the simple pleasures are all I need.  Someone please wake me up when it's over.

Self-awareness and self-protection can only go so far though Jerry.  Even though regular animal testing is already being skipped in a vaccine development for this virus a vaccine will still take longer than we can avoid people, surfaces, etc.  All the short term isolations and quarantines will (hopefully) serve the goal of rolling out the exposures (and the concomitant gaining of natural immunities) to a pace that doesn't overwhelm transport, medical, and other systems.  It's less scary if it runs through the population in 18 months instead of six.  I'm an old(er) fart now also.  Not looking forward to eventually making my acquaintance with the bug.  Somewhere, somewhen, and from somewho it's going to happen though.  Fortunately I've got toilet paper (so I should be ok).

 :2vrolijk_21:   Same here Don, but if things get dragged out beyond my supply of toilet paper I can use newspaper (I'm one of those people who still gets a newspaper delivered).  I'm often tempted to use it for TP anyway after reading what they pass off as news. 

I can't help but compare the current situation to the 2009 pandemic often called Swine Flu.  That one dragged out for a year, about 12,000 Americans died from it, and yet the government at that time did very little.  Nothing was shut down, people still did all the things people do, and the media didn't constantly try to promote panic.  I don't remember changing my normal routine at all back then. 

Here's hoping they have overblown the whole thing, but I still think I will take this one much more seriously.  I'm no longer a middle aged whippersnapper, now I'm officially an old coot.

I guess it wasn't just "Fake Newz" and hysteria "created by the mainstream media". I guess there really was something to this after all.

CDC now recommending everything stays closed for 8 weeks (minimum).  Every day a new recommendation.  I'm sure it'll be something different in a few days.  Hope government takes care of the people and businesses who cannot work/operate and will ultimately have no income during this time.
