US cases top 32,000 as New York governor estimates 40% to 80% of state will get coronavirus

That's a scary headline. 40 to 80% of New York state?

There is a population of 19.5 million people as of July 1, 2019. That comes out to between 7.8 million to 15.6 million people. That's a lot of people getting this virus. No telling how many of them have pre-exising conditions that will make them susceptible to the more serious symptoms of this.


eek Wow - thse are sobering figures. And that is the scary part - the people with pre-existing conditions are so vulnerable. I hope they are not taking any chances - staying in and protectng themselves as much as they are able.

I think threads time out after a period of time as well. I am not sure why it was never a sticky - this is a global pandemic - and since the Org peeps are global it concerns the world.


Agreed.

If the Mods reinstate the other threads and shut this one it's fine - but I feel like we need somewhere to exchange information and disucss this - it alleviates some of the stress when you are able to share your concerns. For the first time we are not just sympathizing with each other - we are all in the same boat - and we wil be in in for a while.

The more people that get it, the more people they will affect. That's why the cases and deaths compound so fast once it gets rolling. Healthcare and Service people will come down with it, they are around people all the time that have it. Everybody can't stay home. I'm resigned to getting it at some point, hopefully not fatal. The social distancing is just to slow it down to stagger the cases, it's not going to stop it.

National Guard will be deployed. Wonder when the major military presence will be exercised?


Some states already have, like Pennys. Probably every state will call up their own reserves. The tragic thing is we don't have protection for the workers. When they asked Trump about masks today, he said America wasn't in the business of shipping things. WHAT???

Doctors being told by the CDC to wear bandanas instead. It's the fucking wild west. When he was calling it a Dem hoax weeks ago, they should have been securing what we need. Like masks and gowns - infection barriers 101.

Definitely.

This is a very scary time we are living in. The influenza that hit in 1918 had a second wave later in the year and it was more deadly than the first wave. That concerns me about Covid 19. If this is just the first wave, I don't even want to see what it does if it comes back, and chances are it will. Once a virus erupts, it tends to hit again and again.

Maybe you should have thought about that when you were participating in the nonsense that got the others closed.


Based upon limited in-vitro and anecdotal data, chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine are currently recommended for treatment of hospitalized COVID-19 patients in several countries.

Maybe it was your multiple FUCK YOUS - among other things you said. Why are you blaming other people when you are the one who lost it?

I am trying not to think about that, but I am sure there is a better than good possibility of a recurrence.

Bullshit! All my "Fuck you(s)" were in response to your attacks. You all started in on me and I stood up for myself. Now you're saying that's what got it closed? I'm sure as far as the mods are concerned it's all of us, you for attacking and me for fighting back. And that's fine, from their perspective that's probably spot on. But I don't have to take your bullshit and I won't.

If you're going to LIE and accuse me of saying you are "all on the rag", when I never said anything remotely close to that, you can at best expect a Fuck You. Every. Fucking. Time.

Yeah, well - this DELAY in serious response is all being recorded for history. Let's hope enough people remember it in November.

I'm trying to not think about it, but when I think about my clients and the risk they face, it worries me. I have 20 something year old kids on my case load too, who have serious health complications, and they are at risk. The oldest client I have right now is 98 and is already planning their 100th birthday. My youngest case is 21, just aged out of the children's program. We also have a children's program, my agency doesn't work with the kids, but we're looking into seeing if we can extend our contract to provide services to the kids. They have major medical issues and would be at risk. But I guess kids are at risk anyway. I had posted in one of the other threads about a 12 year old, no health conditions that placed her at risk, that is currently on a ventilator. I'm just hoping we can get all of them through this safely.

I live in NY, near Buffalo. My job is considered essential so I will be off to work 2moro...feeling a bit anxious about that as I feel safest at home. Atleast I don't work in a hospital or as a grocery cashier as I feel they are the most exposed. No masks or gloves are available anywhere...so if you can grab them now, do it, without hoarding. I am able to get most of my normal groceries with the exception of TP, hand sanitizer or wipes, and white bread...so get those items ahead if you are able.. but don't hoard. Doing all I can to keep myself & my family safe...hand washing constantly, showering after coming home from any public place and changing into different clothes for home. Eating lots of fruits & veggies and (attempting to) getting enough rest. Also, letting go of what I cannot control. All any of us can do is our best to stay safe, keep positive about our current blessings and leave the rest in God's hands. Prayer for good health for all orgers! 💜

I am also concerend about the homeless populatons and encampments. They presumably do not know what's going on and even if they get wind of what's happening, perhaps do not or cannot comprehend the seriousness. Our mayor is tring to set up temporary shelter for them and to possibly isolate those who might be symptomatic - but what a challenge this will be when they won't enter shelters voluntarily even when conditions were not what they are now.
