There definitely appears to be a weather component to this as well. But yay for us. Hopefully we can not rush everything back too soon and sustain our curve flattening until we have appropriate nation wide protocols to deal with this thing indefinitely.

Sacramento & Yolo set to open businesses

Quote:
Sacramento and Yolo officials say they expect to be among the next set of California counties to be allowed to reopen part of their economies under new coronavirus-control standards announced Monday by Gov. Gavin Newsom.

Newsom’s public health officials previously said counties could not reopen restaurants, stores, offices and other venues unless they have gone two weeks without a death from COVID-19.

On Monday, however, that requirement disappeared from the state’s online list of criteria. At a noon briefing, Newsom and his health agency secretary, Dr. Mark Ghaly, said they have modified the reopening requirements to focus more on counties’ abilities to maintain control of the spread of the virus, especially in group homes.

I have yet to see one Covid patient anyplace. I have spent a lot of time in doctor offices for a past injury quite a bit and they have been EMPTY except for the imaging lab that was busy recently.

If you are going to the doctor for a reason other than COVID I would hope that you would not see any COVID patients. COVID patients are being isolated. Testing occurs at specific testing locations. They are not just wandering about looking for a GP.

I think Sac does have pretty low numbers of COVID. Lets keep it that way!

I took your advice. I scored a jumbo 8-pack of Cottonelle, so I am good for now. Should last me a while.

Unbelievably, here it is almost 3 months later and my local grocery stores are still depleted of all but the crappiest TP each time I go, of which they only have a few. Since scoring the Cottonelle, I am not going at the crack of dawn to see if they have re-stocked. I am just noting to see if stocks are coming back. And they are NOT. It is mind-numbing that TP manufacturers are still swamped and cannot keep up with demand now, almost 3 full months later.

Civilization is indeed fragile.

Meanwhile, all the brands of TP I like still say "product unavailable" on Amazon.

Amazing.

I think the virus is real, but it is only particularly dangerous to the elderly with co-morbidities (which is very common in the US elderly). Under 40 years old, it is nothing but a weak flu bug. You cough and sniffle 2 weeks and then you are back up and around.

Once we learned this, after a month or so, everything should have been re-opened with a focus on protecting the elderly who are at risk. Everybody else should have been allowed to do their thing. The mental and financial damange that has been wrought on huge numbers of Americans has been just criminal, some of it will be permanent damage.

Our leaders really botched this thing.

Please read up on some younger people who've had COVID-19. Here's a case of a 33 year old who certainly didn't just cough and sniffle: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/14/o...ng-people.html

And over 45% of Americans are at greater risk of getting this virus, because of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, respiratory disease (which includes asthma), hypertension, cancer, or obesity.

Deaths in hospitals in England through April?

And I was contesting your statement that "Under 40 years old, it is nothing but a weak flu bug. You cough and sniffle 2 weeks and then you are back up and around."

I'm glad you were able to find it there. It appears that a lot of stores are only selling their own store branded TP, I'm pretty sure it's because those yield the largest profit.
