Homemade Face Masks

It is possible that the CDC is going to recommend that everyone wear a facemask when they are outside around people. They specifically discourage n-95 and surgical masks so as not to compete with health care providers for these items. https://www.statnews.com/2020/04/02/coronavirus-cloth-masks-recom...

Re: COVID-19 Thread

I am not vouching for this site but this appears to a comprehensive model (again I do not vouch for their assumptions) that you will frequently see quoted by the TPTB

https://covid19.healthdata.org/projections

It shows state data as well as national data.

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

I would expect there to be a very high correlation based upon diabetes effects on the immune system. This is practically a given. However Alabama smokes LA with diabetes rates. Typically we are #1 or #2 by WV annually (also with BMI). Unfortunately blacks are disproportionally effected due to poor ...

Mardi Gras and Spring Break did Alabama in. Locally, we have a college age kid in the hospital on a vent that went on Spring Break and brought back a little something extra. Not sure about that, but I am sure that LA has a 61% higher than the national average incidence of diabetes. Since over 50% o...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

The local hospitals have activated their "COVID Teams". President Donald Trump has declared Alabama a major disaster area in connection to the coronavirus pandemic. BTW per the AL site 6,531 tested with 847 positive or a 12.9% positive % about the same as LA. http://alabamapublichealth.gov/infectio...

Some interesting plot complications in NOLA. TX and FL has issued laws that require anyone from NOLA to self quarantine for 14 days if they cross the state border. They are actually stopping cars with LA plates and making sure they are aware of this new law. https://www.nola.com/news/coronavirus/art...

NYC is publishing some good data:

Another common trend -- 95% of people who have died so far had an underlying health condition
Also 75% of the deaths were in people age 65 & older.

Re: Rural property, but the locals don't want you there ...

I alternate between a rural area in MS and NOLA. The income disparity of MS is great and when I bought the place I went out of my way to establish a connection to the community. That way I do have people there who know me. I understand and accept that I will always be an "outsider". If you want to u...

Note headline in NOLA.com reads :
Louisiana coronavirus cases see largest single-day spike to 1,172 with surge of test results
So test results for yesterday are in and % of positives has declined to 19.7% from 23%.

These are again people who are symptomatic. A very low positive rate.

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

Cases and deaths are meaningless information when not placed in context of population. All reports are inflated because there are people who have it and carry/heal without testing. Death rate is misleading without knowing the deceased decade and prior health condition. Not saying this isn't a bad t...
