    All week? hmmm. Sadly that and the truth don't jibe. The bill passed the senate late Wednesday night. Pelosi, who I assume you are aware is not actually in the Senate, was instrumental in getting the vote through the House of Representatives today despite Massey's antics to try and force everyone to Washington to record their votes.

    One Fucked up Situation

    Currently 4 dead on board, 138 sick, and nowhere to go. They were heading for Ft Lauderdale but Panama won't let them through the canal. It's easy to say "Why the fuck would you take cruise now?" Well they probably booked their cruise months earlier, and there's this
    On the day it left port, Robert Redfield, the director for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was in Broward County, encouraging people to go about their lives and not be saddled by fears of the virus. Vice President Mike Pence took it step further when he said people should continue to cruise. In no time, President Donald Trump would take to Twitter to say the virus was a ploy between the news media and the Democratic Party.

    Many of us must be tracking the daily infection and death rates from the coronavirus. You may have noticed, the death rates differ greatly from country to country. Here are some of the main reasons.

    I see them and my mind strains to find some way to interact profoundly, with some subtle sensitivity like it’s our last meeting, but I am blank, and any attempt would be indescribably awkward and wholly unwelcome. Have a good one! Ok see you later.

Standing in the cheatgrass, watching the lightning clouds grow darker, feeling the downdrafts..hoping I’m something less flammable, but not as sure as I’d like to be.

    Absolutely Mission Impossible

    Drägerwerk is a world leader in the production of ventilators. In an interview, company head Stefan Dräger, 57, discusses the challenges of keeping up with current demand as the corona crisis accelerates.
    ....
    Dräger: Before we invest too much thought into this, we should focus on getting devices that are sitting around in a basement somewhere back into working order..
    ...
    Dräger: In Europe, the number of intensive-care beds per capita is very unequally distributed. In Italy, it is three times lower than here. In England, five times lower. The challenge in England will be greater than in Spain. And the situation in the U.S. is very alarming. The reporting system there is also underdeveloped.
    ....
    Dräger: It shows that common sense is more important than we all thought. This situation is so new and complicated that the problems can only be solved by people who carefully weigh their decisions. Artificial intelligence, which everyone has been talking so much about recently, isn't much help at the moment.

    I can't keep up with this thread, it moves too quickly, but an update for the other fire guys here from Utah.
    Our calls are down about 30% right now, people staying home and out of trouble. It's giving us time to stock and plan for what may be coming. We have planned a three step program; yellow, orange, red. We are operating at yellow now which means engines no longer go on medical calls with symptoms of corona virus. At orange engines and ladders stay in the station for all medical calls and we take one ladder out of service to man two additional ambos. All vacations are also cancelled at this stage. Red is more of the same and we start rotating in admin staff to man additional med units, including a fast action rig that could go and evaluate and determine transport priority.

    If a large number of firefighters get sick we may have to drop C shift and go to A/B only, 24 on/24 off.

    Our PPE is holding up pretty well. That's all I can remember for now.
    I saw someone upstream mention homeless shelters. I talked to a captain who responded on a call to our shelter last night. He said it was a total shitshow with none of the protocols we helped them develop in place. Symptomatic patient in a crowd of other homeless, no one isolated or wearing PPE.

    Ugh^^^ that cruise ship. If we got within sight of land they'd have to shoot me to keep me from jumping and making a swim for it. That seriously sounds like 5th level of hell.

    With all the demand for PPE, task forces searching for supply chain, cached stores if PPE, etc - here is the Greeley police department prioritizing using PPE for drug raids.

    Hey, remember when that Chinese doctor who tried to ring alarms about this virus was slapped down and then died? And we and our media all said, oh, that awful Chinese government? I guess we're pretty awful too, now. At least this guy is still alive, for now.

    Abbot delivering 50k tests per day is huge. That means in about 30 days we can reach the testing level of S Korea (0.5% of population) and start taking the next steps to sort the sick from the healthy from the immune.

    Hard to say really

    100k cases yesterday approx. But recall har due to under testing who really knows the real number? That 100k doubles every 2.5 days on a 32% increase.

    10 days - 1.6million cases

    Let's take the lower end fatality rate of 0.5% - 8,000 fatalities

    Seems like eventually the test for immunity will be as important as the test for the virus itself. Not sure where they are at with that yet though. Really wish we had it though, proven immunity would allow a lot of people to get back to work and stop sitting at home worrying.

    They closed one of the two shelters here, and put everyone in the high school gymnasium to achieve proper distancing. That effort is completely wasted when they "release" them every morning, where they immediately form a large group to smoke and basically have a sidewalk party for a half hour before pairing up to roam the streets.

    He lost me when he started talking so much about Germany. Timing, is why Germany is doing better than the others, and IMO it's about to blow up there deaths wise.
