Second case confirmed in Santa Clara county. Iím basically going to work in a petri dish tomorrow. I wonder if when the doc breaks the news to me, maybe thatís the moment Iíll find meaning in life. Fuck this world. Cover it in flames.

music is always better after your heart is broken so i'm eager to hear how it sounds when laying on your deathbed attached to a breathing apparatus and none of your loved ones care. come to think of it, that's what inspired eno in recording discreet music

Maybe after they tell me I have it, Iíll finally want to volunteer and help the elderly and coach youth sports at the Y. Maybe become a Big Brother. I hear thereís a homeless problem too. Maybe Iíll get some of those vaccinations you hear about sometimes.

sars wasn't overblown, it was just properly contained

and i'm not so sure of that chart because based on the testing limitations currently in place, there should be a well established inflection point as of now when using the official numbers

Deaths have exceeded SARS with 400 versus its 300 in China. Researchers warn it could be a pandemic but so far they believe that Coronavirus has a low death rate at 2% because many in China that were inflicted are now well. How many will die is now the main concern. By comparison, tens of millions died from Spanish flu in 1918. But it had a rate of 2% as well. It's just that so many contracted it. So far Corona is said to be  contagious, almost like an influenza, so we're definitely not out of the woods.

Spanish flu was so deadly because it was basically the perfect time for a pandemic to strike. Lots of people moving around the world, poor hygiene, poor general health because off the war, lack of resources because of the war, lack of communication about the spread of the pandemic because of the war. Basically, without WWI, Spanish flu would have been a minor event.

Fun fact which I learned from a WWI podcast, Spanish flu actually originated in the USA and was transported to Europe by US soldiers. It was called Spanish flu, because as a neutral country, Spain didn't have the same restrictions on the press as the combatant countries and that meant it was the first place which actually reported it, even though it had been rampaging across France for a while.

The situation for the 2003 SARS outbreak was completely different, because asymptomatic people were not contagious. It's obvious hard to contain something when it's capable of spreading, yet entirely undetectable.

SARS was also a lot more virulent, so there's that.

That's not quite right.
The Spanish flu was completely different because it was the deadlier the stronger your immune system was (it caused an immune storm), thus killing mostly young and healthy people. 2019-nCoV is predominantly deadly to people with weakened immune system (the same group of people that is normally more adversely affected by pneumonia).

My current stance is that as long as the number of infected is in single digits in my country I'm not going to worry too much.

The mortality rate being low is good, but the hospitalization rate is pretty massive... as are those who enter critical condition at some point.

This would definitely have a different mortality rate in a country with bad health care, and would fuck over a lot of Americans.

This is pretty cool.

Best case scenario would be if it worked like herpes. After the symptoms go away, the virus stays dormant in your body and then one day BAM it's back and you are infectious. Thats why like 80% of the world has it.

Throw in a 2% mortality rate every time you experience symptoms and we have ourselves a party.

Yeaaaah. From what I understand cruise ships are like mobile contagious disease (and STI) carriers because of so many people interacting (and fucking) in small trapped proximity. Was only a matter of time until someone with the virus is a tourist on a ship and everyone gets it.

Also I have a feeling one of the major outbreaks in the USA and other countries that have it contained so far is gonna be someone from HK or Japan visiting the USA while it's still incubating since most countries are only watching out for people coming in from China. HK especially is starting to spread and people fly from HK everywhere.

First meal in 18 hours. Being diabetic and dairy intolerant there is nothing here I can eat. They have since brought me 4 bread rolls & butter.

We have now up anchored and on our second cruise in Japanese waters. It is going to be tough on rationed food, and with no alcohol!

No services onboard the ship now. How the crew are going to cope with this beats me. This is a huge challenge for Diamond Princess.

We are out at sea now converting sea water into drinking water. Ship was running low on water for showers etc.

So with these cruise ships (2 now!), I don't get why they can't dock them and have mainland people bring truck shipments of supplies (food/water/medics)??

I mean I'm sure hoping they are bringing major medics on, because otherwise all these people on the ship who are gonna get bad pneumonia without medical attention are gonna die. If the ships are left at sea, the death count on them is gonna be severe imo.

They have plenty of food and water, I think the issue is that the crew might be infected and do you want them cooking?

As for doctors, cruise lines make big bucks charging high infirmary fees.

I actually have a non-joke update:

My office mateís daughter was ERed to the hospital this morning with symptoms.

Iím sure this will be fine and is likely not the virus but

1) sheís from china and was there in december
2) she currently lives in San Jose, where there are confirmed cases

Could it be my time?



No more details at the moment. My manager is going to talk to hr because he doesnít know if he should tell anyone else (this office mate isnít his property). What will HR tell him? I prob wonít find out until tomorrow when I talk to him again.


This is all really probably nothing but THE POSSIBILITIES
