    I'm both happy and sad for Donuts. He's truly a stranger in a strange land, with a nod to Dr Heinlein. At least he feels safe. Maybe.

    For all the gloom and doom and the seeming impossibility of stopping this thing, it's worth noting that China seems to have stopped it and life is starting to return to normal less than 3 months after the virus first hit and about 2 months after all the quarantining started. That's pretty incredible.

    I hope everyone remembers this and we are substantially more ready for the next one, the real-er one. Because it's going to happen, just like this one was inevitable.

    If there's one thing to learn for the future, it's this.

    While the longest incubation length is about 14-27 days even, the average one has been updated to 5-6 days.

    You'll get symptoms rather sooner than later. If at all.

    No problem here its in short and the main points.

    There are 2 main things in my case.

    1. Kideny disease for the last 15 years with very high hypertension(even though im on a diet and training regiment) and tremors.
    So this is why the Austrian case hits me pretty hard, i dont know how severe her disease was but i know that mine is deteriorating.

    2. This has less to do with the coronavirus risk group and more with day to day but i was in a pretty rough accident when i was 14 and since then i lost alomst all of my hearing abilty in the right ear and sufferd permanent damage to both of my legs in the form of nerevs and muscels.
    Had to undergo 5 surgeries in 2 years and spend a long time on wheelchair and than crutches and a walking cane.

    Take care of yourself and you should be extra protected.

    1. Her condition should have been pretty bad as she was regularly in hospital way before she contracted the Sars Cov-2.
    Plus she got Diabetes at young age, which could have triggered a lot more.

    Just trying to help spread as much good information as I can. It can be hard to fight through the junk that gets spread so I’m doing my best to help out.

    Think we had up to 80km traffic jams at the Germany-Poland border yesterday.
    Every truck driver has to leave the truck and fill out forms, which is kinda nuts and takes ages.

    They should at least send them the forms online to fill out before the start of their drive and then process it, the current system is nuts.

    Even though I’ve been following this awhile the weight of all this is really hitting me hard the past 2 days. This is an economic disaster that cannot bounce back in the V shape recovery that we are hoping for. There is too much damage occurring on too many fronts. Combine that with the energy crash and it’s real conundrum. I hope I’m dead wrong but I’m worried.

    I truly do think we will save a lot of lives and that the human toll this virus takes will be minimized. However, I just wonder if the cost is going to be worth it as morbid as that sounds. I know we can’t allow the hospitals to get overloaded but we are paying an extreme price that I don’t think is being fully recognized. If we go all in on the chloroquine treatment and also bring in the avigan from Fuji when it becomes widely available then maybe that was the better route to go rather than possibly causing a depression.

    I don’t know. I’m kind of rambling and should be asleep but it does seem like the anti virals appear to be very promising.

    Think of it this way. We are also trying to give the medical system breathing to with deal non COVID medical issues. If the system is strapped, the death rate for all those could also increase. The treatments you are describing are promising, but still being vetted. Even they have risks, and those risks are magnified at the scale of the world population.
