US PERCENT WITHOUT HEALTH INSURANCE BY CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

I'm curious to see a similar map representing COVID-19 deaths after the pandemic has passed.

I was looking at the Johns-Hopkins website and wonder why the death rate in Italy is about 5% but more like 1-2% in the rest of the world.

Definitely. Any healthcare system will staff and resource for baseline population needs (with or without additional extra/private options). An epidemic or pandemic is not part of that.

Makes a good point, actually.

If you're sick, but cannot afford to pay for treatment, you go to the emergency room, right? Which everyone knows is the best place to get prompt care. Sure, you'll have to wait until they clear the crash victims, gunshot/stabbing victims, ODs, and REALLY sick COVID-19 patients, but you'll be first on the list after them.

If you're sick, but do not have 'papers', you don't even go to the emergency room, for fear of being detained (or worse).

To the larger point, there is NO country with the medical resources to handle the number of COVID-19 cases expected. By 10X or more. In China, patients with serious treatable conditions have died, because there are not enough resources to care for COVID-19 patients AND the normal number of critical patients. Dialysis, chemo, blood tests, etc. etc. are all set aside in favor of COVID-19 management.

It's going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

Trump Can't Bluff his way through this crisis   

Donald Trump is revealing how “deeply unsuited he is to deal with a genuine crisis that he can’t bluff his way through,” according to an editorial published Sunday in the Washington Examiner, a conservative political news site and weekly magazine that often has the president’s back.
This time, the Examiner had a serious problem with the president’s deceitful approach to the coronavirus threat."It’s one thing for Trump to insist he had a ‘perfect’ phone call and have all his Republican minions fall in line. It’s another thing to downplay a growing epidemic as more and more Americans get sick,” wrote the Examiner’s executive editor Philip Klein.
 
The librul NYT had a similar piece:
For a president who lives in the moment, rarely planning too far ahead, the coronavirus has proved to be a leadership challenge he was not prepared for either. The outbreak that has rattled the nation does not respond to Mr. Trump’s favorite instruments of power: It cannot be cowed by Twitter posts, it cannot be shot down by drones, it cannot be overcome by party solidarity, it cannot be overpowered by campaign rally chants.

Mr. Trump, who is at his strongest politically when he has a human enemy to attack, has seemed less certain of how to take on an invisible killer. The role of calming natural leader is not one that has come easily as he struggles to find the balance between public reassurance and Panglossian dismissiveness. He has predicted that the virus will “miraculously” disappear on its own with warmer weather, suggested a vaccine will be available soon and insisted anyone who wants to be tested can be — all overstated or inaccurate.

Besides if one is truly physically active, there many types of food that one will want to avoid.

It is rather curious that the COVID-19 virus hits at the same time the US adult obesity rates attains 40% and is forecast to hit 50% in the near future.

God wanted to reward Americans for being 'exceptional' and pursuing the cheap energy entitlement at any cost.   Mission accomplished.

Well carp. That sucks, but let's hope it's just a precautionary measure. It makes sense to limit medically frail folks' exposure, it doesn't seem like an over-reaction.
Regardless, not being able to see your Dad adds worry to everyone. Can he Skype, text, email, send smoke signals?*

It's precautionary - no suspected cases. Sadly, communicating with him at this point must be done face to face, and even then it's minimal.

Thanks

so if you missed buying stock in the hand wash/sanitizer companies...the next tip is hand moisturizer....lots of dry hands out there from all that washing. 
 
As an optician (and also having been in the food business for over 10 years in my twenties), I am always washing my hands because of my contact with people and their glasses.  My hands are cracked as they usually are in the winter from all of the hand washing.  With the threat of infection, I have consciously beefed up my use of moisturizer for my hands to heal the cracks which will allow infections another way to enter the body.

My lament based upon the experience of my current profession (now over 25 years) is that most people think that (or act like) hygiene is a type of denim clothing ...

Make your cardio-vascular and pulmonary systems work hard.  

While 'suffering', think of all those runners who claim they never get a cold.

If you are worried about this, don't. Worry can make you sick
Do things that support your immune system
Eat well (50% veggies, no processed foods or added sugar)
Drink lots of water
Get plenty of sleep, at least 8 hours plus 20-30 min naps when you can
Exercise - sweat, clear the toxins from your system
If you want, try some supplements  -multivitamin, C, D, zinc
Herbs can help - elderberry, green tea, garlic, ginger...lots of good trad chinese herbs have anti microbrial properties and have proven effective with past flu outbreaks.
