Coronavirus SARS-Cov2 COVID-19

covid-19

OK, I have been really lax with this blog and not written anything for a long, long time, but this is an important message for all and any readers.

This will not be the usual post, but I just wanted to get this out to people, especially following the President’s speech last night which was lackluster at best, and unforgivably misleading, at worst.

COVID-19 is here in the US. It has been spreading within the community for 15 days already, according to CDC.

Unchecked, the infection rate will be exponential, doubling every day or so.

It is more infectious and more fatal than the ‘flu, although it does affect older people much worse than younger people.

Younger people can spread it to older people, and we do not know the extent of the spread in the US yet since the CDC and FDA were woefully slow in closing to use their own test and releasing it too late.

Likely there are tens of thousands of people infected and spreading it already, possibly more.

It is important that people understand the seriousness of this situation.

The following article is a superb analysis of the pandemic:
