    I wonder how it compares to the handle of a grocery store shopping cart.

    Here's the link to an interactive map where you can locate you state and county for a current update on the number of Coronavirus cases.

    U.S. Interactive Update Map for COVID-19 Data



    I just checked Martin County, this would be Stuart, where AG is located, then Port Saint Lucie, the county nearest us to the North and Wes Palm Beach, the county nearest us to the South.


    Stuart





    Port Saint Lucie






    West Palm Beach

    Not Travel-Related: 3

    It's now Friday, 3 days later and we're at 16 diagnosed cases - so in 3 days we've tripled the number of cases.


    Ugh.... please everyone, no matter where you live, wash your hands often, try to self-quarantine, don't do stupid stuff.

    Re: How to avoid germs - Gas Station

    Here's something very interesting, a mapping of theoretical illness based on body temperatures taken throughout the U.S. via data from "smart" thermometers used by several million people. For 8 years, a company called Kinsa has been selling and giving away these "smart" thermometers to be carried by people akin to other body monitors people are using ... FitBit, etc.


    US Health Weather Map by Kinsa


    Kinsa has used the data collected to map and compare, among other things, yearly flu illness levels/trends and locations of outbreak.

    Kinsa has now developed an additional element to their temperature mapping. Besides showing where body temps are elevated (indicating some type of illness present), they are further breaking it down in to illness that would likely be attributed to the seasonal flu and illness that would be attributed to something else ... the "something else" possibly being COVID-19. They base this off of the normal levels/patterns of illness they have seen for this time of year during the past 8 years for which they have collected data.

    To read the map, first click on Observed. This will show you a map of how much of the population is currently affected by flu-like illness. This would include everyone ... people with flu AND people with COVID-19.

    Trends represents the 7 day rolling average change of illness.

    Then, click on Atypical. This is the biggie. This will show you a map of "unexpected" illness, or how much of the Observed population is above and beyond what is the previously-observed (ie. normal) amounts of flu illness for this time of year and location, based on the last 8 years of data collected. The deviation could thus represent the amount of COVID-19 infections.

    The Atypical map does present an interesting picture. Compared to other areas of the country, NY/Tri-state stands out on the Atypical map, as does a few other known hotspots like Detroit, and then also Florida. But California and Washington do not, despite being hotspots and also locations where you would think there would be more of these thermometers in use.

    3: Zinc sulfate


    This is based upon the success Didier Raoult, a French virologist has had using this combination to treat the virus.

    So far no word about the testing?






    I for one will be watching for news updates on this treatment combo and hope it proves to be at least our first line of attack against this virus moving forward. Then with time, there will be more discoveries to help us either eliminate it as a risk or at least have a remedy for anyone that catches it.

    I'm thinking it's one of two things, Mike.

    A) The drugs do not work as well as they thought. Or:

    B) They DID work, but the announcement would cause a HUGE demand. One they probably could not fulfill for months, and cause a nasty backlash from the entire country.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Actually, on Sunday the FDA granted emergency-use authorization to hydroxychloroquine sulfate and chloroquine phosphate to treat COVID-19 patients. The emergency authorization requires patients to receive doses of the drugs via the U.S. federal stockpile. Drug manufacturers like Bayer and Novartis have already donated millions of doses and other companies are promising millions more (doses). One of the reasons that COVID-19 patients are required to be treated via the federal stockpile is that there has been a run on chloroquine, with many Drs. and patients trying to get it to use prophylactically, so it can be hard to find (Note: Z-pak is also seeing a run in demand). And then there is already bootlegging/counterfeits too.

    It will take some time to complete the clinical trials in order for the FDA to further rule on the use of chloroquine. Afterall, the initial "study" that kicked off the interest in chloroquine involved only about 20 patients or so.
