    Arrow Coronavirus Live Updates

    Glad I work from home!

    This is an informative article. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/04/w...irus-news.html

    While many things stood out, this made me mad:

    China’s censors blocked social media posts about the spread of the coronavirus as early as December, according to a report released Tuesday by the University of Toronto’s Citizen Lab.

    Many in China have expressed anger at measures taken by the authorities to snuff out the spread of early warnings online. Focus has fallen in particular on Li Wenliang, a doctor who sought to alert others about the disease, only to be held by police and accused of spreading rumors. He would later die from the virus, triggering almost unanimous anger and mourning online.
    Sincerely,


    Joe

    Re: Coronavirus Live Updates

    CNN reporting:

    In New Hampshire, first patient violated self-isolation order. Now a second person has CV.

    New York now has 6 confirmed cases of CV:



    • A female healthcare worker who traveled from Iran
    • A lawyer from Westchester County
    • The lawyer's wife
    • His son, a 20-year-old Yeshiva student
    • His 14-year-old daughter
    • A neighbor who drove him to the hospital


    The husband of the healthcare worker who traveled from Iran tested negative, Cuomo said.
    Several tests across the state also came back negative including from Buffalo where families were being monitored after Italy travel.
    Italy considers closing ALL schools.

    Thank you for creating this thread. With a 10-month-old and a 70-year-old at home, CV occupies most of my thoughts these days.

    I can’t say how I know, but I know. The guy here in Sarasota, was in the hospital since Feb 22nd before they decided to test him on Feb 29 for the Corona Vitus. Now he’s not cooperating with respect to his “contact history.” He’s not telling them anything.

    Coronavirus Live Updates

    I don’t think we should panic, just use proper hand washing procedures and other techniques. Keep the elderly away from heavily populated public places. Just use common sense.

    I definitely agree.

    We have a lot of people on this forum that travel. So, IMO updates are important too,

    Re: Coronavirus Live Updates

    CNN is essentially doing updates as close to real time as possible. https://www.cnn.com/asia/live-news/c...hnk/index.html

    There are now 137 cases in US:

    Here's the state breakdown of the US cases:

    • Arizona – 2
    • California – 33
    • Florida — 3
    • Georgia — 2
    • Illinois — 4
    • Massachusetts — 2
    • New Hampshire — 2
    • New York — 6
    • North Carolina — 1
    • Oregon — 3
    • Rhode Island — 2
    • Washington state — 27 (includes 9 fatalities)
    • Wisconsin — 1

    US Travel Advisories

    The US State Department's travel warning for China is at the highest level — Level 4: Do not travel. The department's warning for travel to Iran, which was already at Level 4 prior to the outbreak, was recently updated to add information about coronavirus.The State Department is advising travelers to reconsider travel to Italy and South Korea, while travel to specific areas of those countries — Lombardy and Veneto in Italy and Daegu in South Korea — is discouraged. The department also advises travelers to reconsider travel to Mongolia.
    Level 2 warnings, urging increased caution, are in effect for Japan, Hong Kong and Macau due to the outbreak.
    The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is discouraging nonessential travel to China, South Korea, Italy and Iran.
    Japan and Hong Kong carry lower-level CDC advisories.
    Sincerely,


    Joe

    Re: Coronavirus Live Updates

    CNN has changed it website for updates - see below. While a lot has happened and since they are now doing more testing than before new cases are expected. But while there has been some new cases in the U.S. there has been no real surge in the number of cases.

    No. It is still dead, and I have no idea what is the problem. I guess I should try hooking it to the main system. I know the XLR works there, and I could verify the RCA.

    For music I am listening to the cable music channels. It actually sounds pretty good with the sound bar.

    No problem as I would rather read about your Lumin anytime than the CV. I hope you discover what the problem is soon.

    That said, the global impact of the virus is now over 100,000 infected in at least 85 countries and territories.

    It is somewhat interesting to read how certain countries are handling - and not handling - this crisis.

    Just a reminder that the majority of people that seem to contract CV don't die from it.

    While there is no need to panic, we should stay up to date with what the Department of Health [insert various other names] in our respective locations suggest that we do. One of the things we may do to help stop the spread of the virus is keep everything clean. Here are some of the registered disinfectants on the EPA's list:
    Clorox Multi Surface Cleaner + Bleach
    Clorox Disinfecting Wipes
    Clorox Commercial Solutions® Clorox® Disinfecting Spray
    Lysol brand Heavy-Duty Cleaner Disinfectant Concentrate
    Lysol Disinfectant Max Cover Mist
    Lysol brand Clean & Fresh Multi-Surface Cleaner
    Purell Professional Surface Disinfectant Wipes
    Sani-Prime Germicidal Spray

    It's really important to understand that the majority of the deaths caused by this virus are with individuals who already had underlying, compromising medical conditions.
    Here's an interview with a man who has CV and describes the symptoms as hardly more than a common cold.

    Yes, that is what the stats are showing us early on. And though some younger people have died from it (TMK the youngest is 36 yoa so far) the elderly are actually at greatest risk - esp those with underlying heath issues - like my 88 yoa mother, my 60 yoa brother, a lot of my military and law enforcement friends and myself, etc. At lot of audiophiles are older too ...

    According to the Surgeon General - 80% that contract it get a mild dose - like a simple cold or flu. The remainder - a lesser number for sure - get sicker ... But even one loss life is one too many.

    Again, IMO we shouldn't panic but we shouldn't be negligent in taking the proper precautions against CV either.
    Sincerely,


    Joe

    Coronavirus Live Updates

    Maybe this bug will do some good?

    Everyone is being encouraged to wash their hands. I often feel like I'm the only one that washes my hands after using a public or any restroom. The number of Americans that visit a bathroom stall (male or female), open the stall door after finishing business and walk right by the wash sinks provided never getting a drop of h2o or soap on their hands is shocking.

    A few years back when visiting Vancouver Canada with my wife, we both commented about how refreshing it was to see every Canadian that entered a public bathroom did indeed wash their hands and then re-enter public spaces afterwards. The Canadians have it right.

    Perhaps the childlike encouragement and reminders on the news today of washing ones hands thoroughly and often will finally settle in with Americans.... but, maybe not if the behavior is not inherent already.

    Re: Coronavirus Live Updates

    IMO, there is no question that the reaction to this epidemic is orders of magnitude worse than anything the disease itself might throw at us. Children don't seem to get anything other than a mild cold, and healthy people aren't dying in significant numbers if at all (which does happen during an influenza epidemic, including significant numbers of previously healthy children dying EVERY YEAR in this country alone). As each day goes by, data that this is not an especially dangerous virus to a given individual continues to accumulate; in fact, the biggest danger may be just that, that it spreads from people who are minimally ill or show no symptoms at all.

    Re: Coronavirus Live Updates

    Did you see any of this hysteria, or press coverage, last 'flu season' when '61000 people died in the USA of influenza, and millions worldwide..?..Covid 19 is an upper respiratory, infection, that to date, has a morbidity and mortality rate approaching the flu. There is no reason, currently,. for any of the panic that is press driven in this country. People are going to die but the average healthy person, if they contract the disease may not even have significant symptoms.It is too early to in the disease to say whether contracting the virus will give you immunity going forward.This virus, like most viruses, is able to mutate. What will probably happen is that the CDC and labs across the country will come up with an immunization, possibly yearly, that will confer at least partial protection...like the current flu shot. The reality is that < 50% of people that are offered the flu shot don't get it..Dont forget to buy extra 'toilet paper;...

    This is simply not true. Flu mortality rate is generally <0.1%. CDC revised last week of its estimation on COVID-19 mortality rate to be 3.4% (although I’d expect this to change once we know more about COVID-19 in the near future). That means COVID-19 is 34x more deadly than flu. If you use flu mortality rate as 0.05% (in some years), it’s 68x more deadly.

    Besides, flu has vaccine and known antiviral medication. We have none for COVID-19.

    Re: Coronavirus Live Updates

    actually..the CDC has recently revised those mortality #s as the original rate ...they realized...did not include the # of people who contracted the virus that were actually asymptomatic..and weren't counted. As for the vaccine...that should be available before years end...Bottom line..people do not need to stay shut up in their houses and schools and businesses do not need to shut down because there are cases of Covid 19 in the community. People are going to get the virus and get over it ......just like influenza..

    Even using original rate of 2%, that’s 20x more deadly than flu in a bad year and 40x more deadly than flu in a good year.

    You can draw your own conclusion about whether if it is necessary to stay home and shut down business based on above numbers. But fact is it’s more deadly than flu and no one should say otherwise because this is about health.

    Re: Coronavirus Live Updates

    CNNs new site covering CV is: https://www.cnn.com/asia/live-news/c...hnk/index.html

    Some Highlights:

    A 100-year-old man has recovered from the coronavirus

    Bahrain's Formula 1 Grand Prix to be held without spectators

    The numbers: The global total of cases now stands at more than 105,000, with 3,599 deaths since the epidemic began.

    Italy on lockdown: Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte signed a decree which will put most of the country's north under lockdown. The entire Lombardy region is included as well as 14 other provinces. In these areas citizens are only allowed to travel for unavoidable and urgent health issues.

    China hotel collapse: Seven people have died after a hotel that was being used as a coronavirus quarantine center collapsed in China's Quanzhou city. Of 71 people trapped in the rubble, 28 remain unaccounted for.

    South Korean cases rise above 7,100: Seoul announced over 367 new infections today, bringing the country's total to 7,134, including 50 deaths -- the worst outbreak outside of China.

    US cases surpass 440: There are 444 cases of the coronavirus in the US. The US has recorded 19 deaths linked to the virus.

    First coronavirus death in South America: A 64-year-old man diagnosed with the novel coronavirus after traveling to Europe died in Argentina on Saturday, according to the Argentine health ministry.

    Other cases: Australia, Japan, Malaysia, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam reported new cases on Sunday. Maldives reported its first two cases.

    Countries impose quarantines: Thailand asks travelers from China, South Korea, Iran and Italy to self-isolate for 14 days and Macao said travelers from Germany, France, Spain and Japan will need to undergo a 14-day quarantine in designated facilities.

    Grand Princess: The cruise ship with 21 cases of coronavirus, which has been waiting 50 miles off the coast of California, will be allowed to dock in Oakland on Monday.
    Sincerely,


    Joe

    According to the CDC, the flu vaccine's effectiveness for people over 65 is typically 10-15%, and that's only for the strains in the vaccine; if a new or different strain is epidemic, then the effectiveness is 0%. So let's not pretend that we have an effective vaccine for influenza.

    Anti-viral medications work just as well against CoVid19 as they do against influenza (although they are different medications for each), which is to say somewhat but not well. There is no good evidence that anti-viral medications affect the mortality rate of either disease.

    Although we have good data on the number of deaths associated with CoVid19, we have no reliable data at all on the total number of infected people, and it appears it will be a long time (if ever) before that number is known. What is clear is that unlike influenza, children and healthy adults under 40 (or perhaps even 50 or 60) die very rarely or not at all from CoVid19 infection

    Coronavirus Live Updates

    I agree there’s still a lot of unknowns about covid-19, unlike flu. But before you do, you still have to go by the number CDC estimates. This will continue to change for sure. Better or worse, no one really knows. But suggesting now that it’s the same or less lethal than flu is irresponsible. When it comes to life and death, there’s no such thing as over-precaution.

    People over 60 still count the same as people under 60.

    Coronavirus Live Updates

    I would be shocked if we didn’t hear some news about Axpona this week. They keep saying it’s on, but I think things could change. When SXSW got cancelled, that’s big. Nothing has been said, just a hunch.

    I mean, a bunch of old fat guys with poor hygiene squished together in tiny hotel rooms with the HVAC turned off. What could go wrong?

    Re: Coronavirus Live Updates

    I bet it will be axed on Monday.

    They have a big problem, since they can't just move to October / September, like many other events, due to proximity of RMAF. They can try July or June (there have been a summer CES for many years afterall) and hope for the best.

    If they cancel altogether, then the RMAF would get much stronger this year as most companies would probably divert all their money there, which in turn will put them in a bad starting position for 2021.

    Re: Coronavirus Live Updates

    Much too early to know what the CV will do yet.

    As we all know flu season is normally during the winter months then slows down during the hotter months. However, from what I'm reading, there's not enough info on CV yet to know if it is or isn't like the flu.

    At a Pentagon briefing last week, the director of the Center for Infectious Diseases Research was already speaking about a possible "second wave" of CV next winter:

    "This is why it’s really important to understand that a lot of what we’re doing now is getting ourselves ready for what we’re calling the second wave of this," Nelson warned. https://www.cnn.com/world/live-news/...04e9d09060460c
    Of course, our summer time temperatures may kill it all off. They just don't know ...

    IMO while hoping for the best, prepare for the worse ... i.e. a lot of shows may be cancelled.
    Sincerely,


    Joe

    Hi everybody. The last 48 hours have brought a welcome outpouring of calls, emails and posts amid the escalation of coronavirus fears. The AXPONA team has been working on a contingency plan that will continue through the weekend for a possible solution. We hope to have news to share by Monday. Please stay tuned.

    Very interesting. The only reason I made my post is because most (all?) my manufactures were pulling out. They haven’t said it publicly, but privately, they mentioned it. I feel bad for the folks at Axpona. Honestly, these shows are sooooo much work. We started planning ours for 2021, two weeks ago. This is beyond their control and to make these tough decisions on the eve of the show, is really difficult. I wish them luck and hope they make the best decision in the end (whatever that may be). Axpona is an amazing show.

    Re: Coronavirus Live Updates

    I understand the deep concern many have in regards to the Axpona audio show, the biggest audio show on the planet. On the other hand I understand the deep concern many have in regards to the Coronavirus, with the possibility of dire consequences on infection spread and that can even result in deaths.

    We highly value our audio, we highly value our families and friends and all people.
    Without healthy people hiend audio doesn't have the same music listening impact.

    In my sincere honest calculated opinion.
    Take good care of one another everyone.

    I also remember when he told us the passing of his lovely wife not that too long ago.
    I forgot her name but it was a name that I like very much.

    here is an interesting TED video describing how germs and viruses travel on planes:

    https://www.ted.com/talks/raymond_wa..._them#t-335896

    Using fluid dynamics, he created computational simulations of how air moves on airplanes, and what he found is disturbing -- when a person sneezes on a plane, the airflow actually helps to spread pathogens to other passengers.

    I have every confidence that this will end well.

    Iran grants 70,000 prisoners temporary leave due to virus


    Courts across Iran have granted eligible inmates furlough as part of the measures to contain the spread of the virus ... Prisoners with underlying illnesses have been given priority in being granted leave ...
    Sincerely,


    Joe

    A young lady has the Cv in our city now. The father didn't obey the quarantine. She is said to be doing better, age 20.

    If Axpona is canceled just think of just the financial impact of that one event, then it makes more sense the financial panic. You have to wonder if enough people potentially would carry CV to warrant canceling some of these events. I was surprised the large concert event was canceled in Austin. I suppose the responsible thing to do is error on the side of caution though.

    To keep this in perspective for the regular flu:

    The CDC predicts that at least 12,000 Americans will die from the flu in any given year. As many as 61,000 people died in the 2017-2018 flu season, and 45 million were infected.

    Sorry, I thought my post was clearer than what you took it. I wasn't mocking death, but Iran's decision to let 70,000 prisoners go ...:

    Iran grants 70,000 prisoners temporary leave due to virus

    Courts across Iran have granted eligible inmates furlough as part of the measures to contain the spread of the virus ... Prisoners with underlying illnesses have been given priority in being granted leave ...
    Sincerely,

    I’m hopeful that this will actually end well. I think some of the media might be doing a disservice to everyone.
