    "2019-nCoV"

    My wife has her clients - mostly elders in their 80s and 90s - use those inflatable neck braces - they swear by them, and use them for sleeping.

    Clean is right, have to use the tested CBD salve. I was surprised how well CBD salve worked for the pain of a old elbow injury injury that flared up recently with a tendonitis like pain (elbow was broken in four places over 50 years ago). I was skeptical, till my wife started using it on my 93 year old MIL on various aches and pains (my MIL would never use it, if she knew it was marijuana based, so my wife would put it in a very small ointment jar - my wife has done elderly care for 45 years - and hated anything marijuana - till it was legalized - now she's and big advocate, not only of salves, but edibles) miraculously it worked overnight for my MIL, so I asked my wife for some. The pain relief was surprisingly quite quick. Speaking of edibles, though I smoked pot, I won't use edibles after a bad experience last spring dealing with pain from an injury. My wife gave me a gummy edible that was 50/50 CBD/THC I think it was 10 mg - I've never been so phucked up in my life. I had to sit in a chair in a stoned state for 3-4 hours before I could come down from it. Consequently, I'm never doing edibles again. Essential oils is what my wife uses for neuropathic foot pain - verbatim from her - 10-12 drops of each essential oil into 2 tablespoons of carrier oil. Carrier oils: Castor Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Sunflower Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Fractionated Coconut. Essential oil mix for Neuropathy 10-12 drops each into 2 tablespoons of a carrier oil Peppermint Eucalyptus Frankincense Rosemary Lavender

    We're both in the same boat, same age and healthy for our age, eat a whole food diet, exercise, etc. With possibly up to 60 - 66 % of the population getting the virus, is why. You could still show no signs of COVID 19 and be contagious. For every week the population is quarantined, the number of cases reduces by one half. Without a vaccine, there is no other option.

    Other then getting out once a week to go to the grocery store, and once every six weeks to fuel up we've been basically home isolating since early February. My fish guy did bring a couple boxes of Alaska salmon a week and a half ago, one which went to a fellow sailor to split with another fellow sailor. My brother went to two concerts last week with his wife, posting pics on FB. I texted him last night, "That COVID-19 could be spread by those showing no symptoms, did he want that responsibility." Some apparently have a problem staying home. The low information type Coronavirus antivenom: One Corona, one lime wedge and the hair off the butt of any dog.

    I know your not belittling the risk - 0.6% of 100 million, 160 million or 214 million people, top to bottom are not insignificant numbers Though the world wide COVID 19 fatality rate is currently 3.4 %. The 200,000 to 1.7 million people I posted, was based on .25% to 1.0%. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/13/us/coronavirus-deaths-estimate.html The least case scenario of 200,000 to the worst-case scenario estimates 1.7 million deaths in US due to coronavirus

    My bad though it's projected to be way over 100 million getting infected. Looking it up - Between 160 million and 214 million people in the United States could be infected over the course of the epidemic, according to a projection that encompasses the range of the four scenarios. That could last months or even over a year, with infections concentrated in shorter periods, staggered across time in different communities. So by those numbers as many as 200,000 to 1.7 million people could die. The key takeaway - the COVID 19 fatality rate is 37.777 x the seasonal flu fatality rate, the World wide COVID 19 fatality rate is currently 3.4 % compared with seasonal flu’s 0.09 %.

    3.4% of the US population of 330,420,410 is 11,234,294. Do the math. Even using their numbers based on the US population, this comes out to way more fatalities then said in this video. Don’t listen to anyone who tells you it’s flu – the World wide fatality rate is currently 3.4 per cent compared with seasonal flu’s 0.09 per cent. The US may be able to hold that fatality rate down to 2.0%. I did the math using percentages of 0.02% to 6.0%. 1% is 3,304,204.1 and 3.4% = 11,234,294, that should get peoples attention. Italy's fatality percentage went up to over 6.0%, because they treated it like the flu, didn't quarantine and stop going to social activities. Consequently, Italy's fatality rate is almost double the known global average. Follow the guidelines to prevent catching and spreading COVID-19, wash your hands, stay home as much as possible, stay out of public places and stay out of public restrooms as much as possible. There's a lot of bad journalism out there about this disease from journalists who have had to drop their usual beats and write about disease, but aren't steeped in it or can't see the big picture about what the global, US, and local healthcare issues are. It's very possible that coronavirus will end up killing more people who never get coronavirus than it kills people directly. How many conditions and diseases are going to go untreated because patients stayed away from healthcare systems to avoid contracting the virus, or because their procedures have been cancelled or postponed due to all-hands-on-deck operations? If India gets really bad, hold onto your hats, because they produce a lot of the medication components that we need and if things get bad, they're gonna keep them for themselves. Then what happens to patients requiring immunosuppressants or antivirals or last-resort antibiotics? I don't think we should panic on keeping oneself or one's family safe. But journalists and doctors who are looking the cruise ship Diamond Princess and saying "Oh, this disease isn't so bad," are being totally premature and irresponsible. We're still in the early stages of what this disease will do. All those lockdowns and quarantines in China and Italy? How long are they going to have to last if they don't want the virus to return and end up back at square one? Because this disease isn't leaving the States any time soon, and based on the fact that it's spreading in places that are warmer and the southern hemisphere, it probably won't be seasonal, like a lot of experts were hoping for.

    An eye-opening article on the epidemiology of the coronavirus as we know it today. The most critical message being the importance of early intervention, social distancing, and to not travel. https://medium.com/@tomaspueyo/coronavirus-act-today-or-people-will-die-f4d3d9cd99ca

    At 1:54 note how cases in Central China were falling by half every week due to the quarantine. America could learn a lot from China - but I don't see that happening.

    Seven's coverage actually confirmed, even though they switched to an onboard view - what's fairly obvious to most, it was a perfectly executed leebow.
