The aggregate news this morning is rather hopeful, I think, the numbers are coming in under the projections in the US, the southern European countries and NYC MAY have crested and started to decline.  There is a NOTION that some of us, more than thought, have been infected and have some herd immunity with no symptoms, I'm not ready to accept that at this point but it is one explanation for this thing.

The stock market futures are up sharply at this point.  I tend to view them as a bell weather of sorts.
I really think I might have had this thing in mid January. I've never had a flu like that before. I was sick for two weeks, had a fever that wouldn't go away for over a week. My immune system is pretty gangster. I basically never get sick and I've had the flu in the past and always bounced back in a few days. This thing just lingered on forever and kicked my ass for 2 weeks.

I really think a lot of people already had this thing. First of all, the CCP are clearly lying bastards and this infected and killed way more people in China than they let on, and 430,000 people from China traveled to the US since December 31st, 2019- with tens of thousands flying to the US directly from Wuhan- and 400,000 people- the vast majority of these travelers- came in from China in January before the US enacted a travel ban on January 31st. Which by the way, the travel ban went into affect all while the lying CCP and the gutless WHO were telling the world everything is A-OK- no need to slow down travel from China!

This doesn't count the countless millions who must've come in to the US from other countries in Europe, Australia, Africa, and Asia that had been exposed to the Chinese virus via their countries being completely open to travel to/from China.

Still here and breathing. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough, but I can't seem to find any good news today. It's all bad stuff.
U RAH RAH! WIS CON SIN!

News from southern Europe and NYC is better than expected.  The model I've been following was revised down in terms of deaths.

The stock market is happy, maybe more than a dead cat thing.

I had not realized that patients on ventilators are heavily sedated.
Having spent 3 weeks on one a few years ago, I can tell you that you have to be sedated. I woke up with the tube down my throat and if my hands had not been secured to the bed rails, I would have been pulling that thing out of my mouth. It was a horrible ordeal.

When my mother passed away there was some state regulation inplace health care facilities couldn't do that.The last couple months of her life were tough as she had broke her hip and had to be sedated quite a bit

Good morning all, everyone still alive and breathing well?  All good here in the ATX.

Some encouraging news coming in from around the nation and globe for sure.
Yup, alive and kicking here in the MSP.

I did something to my right knee yesterday and it hurts to beat hell right now. Didn't get much sleep, and as such I'm dragging through my Monday morning conference calls.

All I can tell you is that when I woke up after 3 weeks being on the vent, I was not able to lift my arms to pull that damn thing out of my mouth. After what seemed like an eternity, a couple of male nurses came in. One of them held me down, the other ripped that thing out of my throat and it hurt like hell. Apparently, my esophagus had begun to grow around the tube. It took about 2 weeks to quit hurting and about that long before I could speak much over a whisper.

Stock markets will be just fine. Big business got it's big bailout with that stimulus package. Wall Street just got trillions in government backed low cost credit to pay bills and/or go shopping with and with basically zero over-sight.

It's been a great time to invest if you've have any extra cash laying around. I'd look at a company like Nordstrom. They might be primed for a takeover by Amazon right now. There have been rumors for years that Amazon has wanted to buy them. Walmart made a bid to buy them and the Nordstrom family which still controls most of the voting of the stock shot Walmart down.

It's $15 a share right now, fell all the way to $13 at it's lowest and it was at $42 in January before the coronavirus+ it's latest earnings report came out. If Amazon does make a play to buy them they'll pay a premium and you can bet they'll be buying the company for more than $15 a share.

not a fan of his by any means, but he's clearly a smart person, and I absolutely love how he attacks China in this. And everything he's saying is true. The CCP tried to cover this thing up, and the worthless, gutless WHO held the CCP's water and was saying as late on February 14th that this novel coronavirus does not transmit human to human. Japanese deputy Prime Minister came out and publicly slammed the WHO the other day, said WHO should be renamed Chinese Health Organization.

Not sure who R&A is or what the open championship is?  Is that tennis?  Golf?

R&A is short for the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrew's, governing body of golf outside the US and runs the British Open. And yes, it's the golf tourney I was talking about.

https://www.al.com/news/2020/04/new-death-rate-projection-less-dire-for-alabama-no-longer-worst-in-nation.html

New projections released Sunday from the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington paint a less frightening picture for Alabama as the state continues to face the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last week the IHME model showed Alabama could see the fourth highest total deaths from the novel coronavirus, and the highest death rate in the whole country. In the new projections, Alabama would be 16th in total deaths. The state would fall from first to 21st in deaths per capita.

The new projections show Alabama could still face anywhere from 378 to 1,996 coronavirus deaths by the middle of May, with a mean projection of fewer than 1,000 dead. Compare that with last week’s estimates, which were updated on April 1, and showed a mean projection of more than 5,000 deaths.

The projected death rate in Alabama fell from 11 in 10,000 people last week to a projection of fewer than 2 in 10,000 this week.
