Another coronavirus death in MA. That's #2. It's a woman in her 50s from Middlesex County. She had a pre-existing condition.

Just saw as well. I wonder what the pre existing condition was.

Also saw a woman on the cape tested positive and now 60 others are in quarantine.

I do think people aren’t taking the stay at home stuff seriously. Just too many people out walking, in parks, at stores. This ain’t gonna work.

The vast majority of deaths will have a pre-existing condition involved when this is all said and done.

I saw somewhere that 75% of Italian deaths tracked as coronavirus also had high blood pressure.

Sad reading these stories:

The one I feel the most sorry for is the guy who just opened a restaurant 3 weeks ago and had learned to cook in prison. Heartbreaking. People trying to get their lives in order or keep them in order and f@cking coronavirus ruined it.

There is nothing wrong with taking a walk staying 6 feet away from anyone you do not live with! There is nothing wrong with going to pharmacy, grocery, or scheduled medical appointments that your MD wants you to come to in person.


What you are not to do is congregate within 6 feet with another person or people that you do not live with. Staying inside and causing yourself to de-compensate in mental health from not being outside and seeing the natural world, breathing fresh air, and not replenishing supplies. Not everyone can afford delivery of every necessity or has online services!

Unlikely because the virus seems to be hitting below the equator now just as well as above the equator. That seems to indicate it does not favor cold weather when people are inside.


Those kids are going to come back from spring break either sick or as carriers of the virus! Relatives need to keep away from them. Send them off with tents or something.

That is Quarantine not shelter in place! That was done for TB and some other illnesses a long time ago. Public health people would come and put yellow tape across your doors and windows and place a sign on your door. If the tape was broken you had broken quarantine. I do not anticipate that being done!


The time for that would have been with the Biogen conference people-all of them and every person they had been in contact with. And every person returning to the US from anywhere. And a trace back on all people who had returned from Italy or China since December 1st. And use of WHO testing for all of those people. Also Testing and Quarantine of all residents workers and visitors of the Washington nursing home. Likewise the Cruise-boats, and total industry shutdown after the first one.


There still may have been an outbreak-but we would not have been as far behind.

The marijuana shops have been deemed essential businesses and will remain open.

You would think weed (well smoking anything) would be real bad for a respiratory illness.
