Cases so no sign of slowing. They're going up already. Worried about the next two weeks.
the death count has increased some but no where near the increase in cases

In the last 5 weeks the weekly new case count has increased by aprox 78%

In the same time period the weekly death count has increased by aprox 11%


Hope the death count holds until we can turn the corner on new cases

We are showing record cases because we are showing record testing numbers. Everyone is going to get this. People have to leave their basements eventually.

The death increase could lag any infection increase by 3-4 weeks.  The reported new case levels in Europe are WAY in excess of what was seen in the spring.  Deaths are going up as well but have not reached those highs or anything near them ... yet.

Panic buying reported in the UK.  Not happening here ... yet.

Cases have been steadily increasing across Europe since August, 8-10 weeks ago, but the corresponding increase in deaths is minimal compared to what it was last Spring, even accounting for a 3-4 week lag.

Except in the Czech Republic, which I still find perplexing.

BERLIN (AP) — Several European countries are tightening restrictions this week, starting with a partial shutdown Monday in Germany, as authorities across the continent scramble to slow a rapid rise in coronavirus infections that threatens to overwhelm their health care systems.

Britain and Austria will follow suit later in the week, closing restaurants, bars and nonessential shops. Italy, Greece and Kosovo also announced new measures. In some places, the new rules — which vary in strictness — are prompting violent protests by people frustrated at once again having to forgo freedoms.


OR?????



OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Five of the six states with the nation’s lowest unemployment rates are in the Midwest, have Republican governors and have almost no restrictions intended to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

The governors say their decisions not to impose harsher restrictions are paying off with fewer business closures and more hiring reflected in the strong jobless numbers. But economists say it’s not so simple. Although businesses that are struggling during the pandemic can benefit when governors opt not to require masks or limit in-door gatherings, other factors may play an even bigger role in producing such low unemployment rates.

Well, I have lots of guns and ammo and live in the woods with plentiful deer and turkey.  I do have an emergency generator I could hook up to the house to run the furnace, water well, and some other stuff but only lasts as long as the gasoline...maybe a week in Dark Winter.  Not really a "prepper" but just ready for power outages from ice storms, etc.

We have discussed the probability that the new infections may be skewed to a younger median age, and treatment is probably better.

I expect the death increase to be lower.

Czechia I have no idea.

They made some very credible tanks in 1939, better or at least equal to the German tanks, better than the Panzer II that formed the largest portion of German armored divisions at the time.  The Panzer II was a light tank with only a 20 mm main weapon.

Theres a big difference between "shutting down" and requiring masks in businesses  closing bars or inside restaurants

If I ran a state Id monitor hospitalizations and deaths closely and not shut down unless our hospitals were being over run
