@KKJ, I read about that likely procedure as well. I think it's amazing that he has survived. Perhaps his age is a factor.


Yes, but also a mystery as to why the virus attacked his body so badly while others even much older got a light case, like Prince Charles.

@KKJ, not just a mystery for Covid. Don't we see varying levels of severity in so many diseases? I think that the mystery is more in our distinct physical makeup than it might be the virus or disease itself -- or a combination thereof.

Re: 11,458 new cases in Florida since yesterday

When discussing the numbers with friends and family, the one thing we all agreed on was that there would be a spike once summer/hot weather hit and locations with beaches. If you think about it, people going to the beach thinking it's outside, there's a breeze/fresh air, going swimming....it's won't be a big deal. It IS but I can understand the mind-set that it won't be especially among teens, college/young adults who are done with the restrictions, see only "old people" (which is a 30 year old when you're teen/early 20's) and willingness to take risks.

 

What I can't figure out is why Arizona is having such higher numbers than Florida? I lived in Arizona for awhile and the colleges are big but no one is there right now. You go tubing but I'm not aware of beaches like Florida. There are MANY snowbirds (but so does Florida) and the numbers are showing younger not older. Anyone know the reasons behind it? TIA

@FiddleDeeDee I remember seeing pictures of people who lined up waiting for the casinos to reopen and then the majority were not masked and weren't adhering to social distancing.  I think the same thing happened when the bars reopened.  I also remember that at the time casinos in Nevada were still closed and people drove to AZ from there and from Ca too to get in their love for casinos.

Re: 11,458 new cases in Florida since yesterday

OK, given that we do not have an estimate of the impacts of theses improvements, we can just call them x.  So, using the NY pattern on Florida or Texas, if a state has adequate beds, staff, and PPEs, "shut down" time = 2 months - x.

 

The NY experience is a shared national experience as we all saw on a daily basis in charts and graphs the data unfold in real time as it was happening.  It was Virus 101 for many of us.  If we use NY as a framework, more of us can understand what is happening, and what we are now confronted with.

Re: 11,458 new cases in Florida since yesterday

And here's why that doesn't matter:

 

Deaths are at an all-time low, there are fewer deaths today than yesterday, and an increasing number of people are aymptomatic--many only being tested where their employers require it.

 

Strange how the declining number of deaths along with those testing positive presenting with minor symptoms--or none--isn't viewed as good news.

 

Stop being afraid, and educate yourselves.

@Moonlady I truly hope that this is good news.  However, the recent surge in positive cases has only been going on for a few of weeks.  Hospitalizations and deaths from this surge will probably peak in the next few weeks.  I'm not afraid and I am educated, but I don't turn a blind eye either.

Re: 11,458 new cases in Florida since yesterday

Deaths are down in NY and several states in the NE, but there are a host of epicenters emerging all over the country where deaths are rising.  The key is we don't want to have to deal with another massive deadly situation.  If we don't get this killer virus under control, we will be facing a death march again.
