5% of serious cases?
or 5% of all infections? Because 5% of all infections would be a huge number.

I don't know but I would guess of hospitalized cases, which would be the serious ones.

edit : yes hospitalized.

Heard yesterday that my friend and work colleague's mum is in hospital with Covid. Don;t know how bad she is but I suspect its very not good. Her mum isnt elderly, she's only in her early 60s, but has lung problems.

I dont know when Clo last saw her mum face to face before this - she was at the hospital last I heard.

I am worried for her, because of her mum, obviously, but I am also worried about Clo herself - her asthma gets quite bad sometimes.

That's got tragedy written all over it. Dana, I'm sorry to hear about this, please give my best to your friend and her mom. From a safe distance of course, but the distance itself is an additional problem. Sorry.

I was talking to a guy in Texas today and he was telling me he was trying to figure out how to access a vent on his roof. When I told him to be careful he said no problem he has medicare if he gets hurt. I reminded him a hospital is the very last place you want to be right now.

Legit question; When should we know whether Sweden's plan is working? Since folks are turning it into a hammer for their own agendas. I'd like to see a list of the actual measures taken along with the societal factors which make them similar or dissimilar to us. I guess it all hangs on herd immunity...

Maybe the Brits save our ass here.

For us to acquire herd immunity without a vaccine would require 70% of the population to get sick in a short period of time.

Yeah, I believe that's what Sweden is attempting? Obviously you'd need a functional healthcare system and an effective way to isolate the old and infirm. Otherwise you get: https://www.wwlp.com/news/local-news...-19-pass-away/

To the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody:

Coronavirus Rhapsody
March 19, 2020 by Jonco

Lyrics by Dana Jay Bein

Is this a sore throat?
Is this just allergies?
Caught in a lockdown
No escape from reality.

Donít touch your eyes
Just hand sanitize quicklyyyyy
Iím just a poor boy, no job security
Because of easy spread, even though
washed your hands, laying low
I look out the window, the curve doesnít look flatter to me, to me

mama, i just killed a man
didnít stay inside in bed
walked by him and now heís dead
mama, life was so much fun
but now Iíve caught this unforgiving plague

mama, oooooh
didnít mean to make them die
if Iím not back to work this time tomorrow
carry on, carry on as if people didnít matter

oo late, my time has come
sends shivers down my spine
bodyís aching all the time
goodbye everybody, Iíve got the flu
gotta leave you all behind and face the truth

mama, oooooh
I donít wanna die
I sometimes wish I never went out at all


I see a little silhouette of a man
what a douche, what a douche
did he even wash his hands though
security is tightening
very very frightening me
Gotta lay low (gotta lay low)
Gotta lay low (gotta lay low)
Gotta lay low masturbate
Masturbate O O O O

Iím just a poor boy, facing mortality
HEíS JUST A POOR BOY FACING MORTALITY
spare him his life from this monstrosity

Touch your face, wash your hands, will you wash your hands?
BISMILLAH NO WE WILL NOT WASH OUR HANDS! (WASH YOUR HANDS!)
BISMILLAH NO WE WILL NOT WASH OUR HANDS! (WASH YOUR HANDS)

BISMILLAH WE WILL NOT WASH YOUR HANDS! (WASH YOUR HANDS!)
WASH YOUR HANDS! (never, never, never wash your hands oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)
No no no no no
Oh mama mia, mia (mama mia wash your hands!)
COVID-19 has a sickness put aside for me, for me

So you think you can stop me and just shake my hand?
So you think we can hang out and not break our plans?
Oh baby, canít do this with me, baby,
Just gotta stay home, just gotta stay home with my fever

oooooh

Curving can get flatter
Anyone can see
Curving can get flatter
Curving can get flatter, youíll see

Just look out your windowsÖ.

I suppose some new art will come out of this social isolation thing. As well as some rethinking of classic artwork:
