I’ve been wiping my packages down with Clorox wipes before I open them. Or I just leave them for a few days before I open them.

I just treat anything that comes in the house like a biohazard.

5 more cases today brining the total to 19.

I have to vent a little. Before all of the restrictions my family usually took an elderly neighbor out with us to go walk or to the store if she needed something. Since the restrictions were put in place we have only been going out when necessary. The neighbor called today and said she went out shopping with her cousin and listed several places they went. I was shocked that they don’t seem to care about possibly catching the virus.

Did they have to go multiple places because she needed things and places were out of them? Of course just her cousin should have gone. Me and my boyfriend needed things so he went by himself when before we would go shopping together. I really wanted to go too but I figured it would be safer that way.

Well if this is true its good news.

"Preliminary data from MIT researchers indicate the new coronavirus is not spreading as efficiently in warmer, more humid regions of the world."
https://www.kxan.com/weather/weather-blog/why-friday-could-be-coronavirus-spread-turning-point-in-austin/

But what does that mean for the Fall and Winter? In the 1918 flu epidemic the virus went away during the summer and came back with a vengeance in the fall. At least it could buy us some time to prepare.  I'm really just looking for a ray of hope here.

Isn't florida pretty warm.. and humid?

I'd take it with a grain of salt. Keep doing the social distancing, that's what's needed.

I've been to Daytona and Orlando and froze my butt off; we're talking OMG all the orange trees are gonna die kinda cold. So it just depends on time of year, etc.

I guess it's relative.
right now those places are 76 and 77, which is like a pleasant summer day up here. *shrug*

Without being too political about it, may I just record my extreme disgust that the UK Govt is putting Brexit ahead of the lives of citizens by refusing to join the EU's scheme to make more medical equipment/ventilators etc available. This surely is NOT the time to be drawing borders when everyone is fighting the same battle, and every little helps.

Surely ideologies can be put aside until this business is done with, because people's lives are way more important.

Well this is it. My county is getting a lockdown order midnight Saturday (even though we haven't had any cases).  And it's around 136 cases statewide now.

I've been in Feb for the nascar race, which is in Daytona and I've had to bundle up with blankets and coat/hat, etc. Last time I went we were not really prepaired and Dad actually found some cardboard for us to put at our back to cut down on the cold wind.

Fricking Atlanta, Georgia nascar race is probably the coldest I've ever been at a racetrack.

I think as far as FL goes, it's more like once you get down to the Miami area where it doesn't get that cold. I remember my friend moved back there and that year it got in the 60's and she told me the school teacher FORCED her to put on a coat because she insisted it was cold. LOL!

So it's even relative to where you grew up in what you consider cold, etc.

1600 cases and counting. Philly has 400 cases, my county has about 1/4 that but it's nothing to sneeze at.
Just heard someone north coughed on a bunch of produce at the store and the grocery store had to throw it out...

2355 cases, 120 tourists and 28 deaths.

Of course, the highest numbers are in cities that have the drive thru testing being done; Miami, Jacksonville and Orlando. They want to open more but I don't know where.

I think they went out for fun, not because they needed anything.


All non essential medical appointments are cancelled until further notice in my city. Not sure if the order came from the mayor or the governor. My mom had some routine appointments after the shelter in place order was given last week and they were not cancelled.

My job made it official that we won't be compensated for the time that we can't work due to the governor's executive order. I understand their decision and I will be okay because I am already living with my parents and don't make enough income on my own for me to live on my own but hearing my job say that they will not pay us for the time we can't work stings.

I think it's because they figure you can just file for unemployment.

My state is now up to 168. Nearly 3,000 tests came back negative. The KC metro area continues to lead the pack.

UK govt have promised (we'll see) to pay 80% of salaries of businesses that apply to them for help over this so they won't have to lay off staff and today made some similar provision for self-employed people (albeit it sounds complex as heck and still requires applying for UC I think in the short term as it won't actually pay out till June...)

Does the US's new stimulus package not do something similar for workers so they can stay in their jobs even if they're not able to work (rather than filing for unemployment)?

Trump is not the clearest at explaining anything but that was kind of what it sounded like he thought it was.

On my earlier comment, apparently now the Govt here suddenly decided they just accidentally 'missed' the EU invite and wouldn't rule out accepting a future one...because they realised the country are not amused by partisan Brexit behaviour in a crisis. Brexit can happen when everyone is healthy - I think only the most nutty Brexiteer would refuse a ventilator because it came originally from the EU store.

And Dyson are making ventilators, subject to safety checks.

London is pretty crazy. Here we still have 2 deaths and now 13 cases confirmed. Over the border in the next administrative area it's 2 deaths, 27 cases. The big concern for us as an area is that the West Mids conurbation is struggling a bit - Wolverhampton, Dudley, Birmingham, Black Country, Sandwell, Walsall etc. All of them are outside my district but all our trains run to/from those places.

Birmingham is 2nd city, with 2nd highest population (1million ish) so it's not surprising but more concerning are the numbers in Wolves which is our closest city.

But we're staying away. Walking today was a bit like when you're playing pokemon and you need a pokemon centre...and you're trying to avoid trainers by ducking out of their way. Every time we saw another person it was like, evasion tactics! But weirdly as everyone was avoiding each other, everyone was saying GOOD MORNING to each other. Which is not something I normally experience. But this is Britain, I wouldn't put it past being a passive aggressive greeting that secretly means 'stay away' - just like 'sorry' generally means 'not sorry because it was your fault, but I'm just polite'.

This surely is NOT the time to be drawing borders when everyone is fighting the same battle, and every little helps.

Surely ideologies can be put aside until this business is done with, because people's lives are way more important.

I feel I can't say anything without being political because whichever info, facts or updates I choose to mention now could be seen as politically loaded.  Objectively their actions are based on a cost/benefit analysis where the lives of everyday people are not important. They have said so plainly. I also have to say that many original brexiteers are Tories with private health insurance and won't be short of a ventilator. However it was working class Tories form Northern ex-industrial towns who apparently tipped te balance in the last election. I bet none of them have private medical insurance and I wonder what they are thinking now. Dyson is a crony. And yes it does seem a bit passive-agressive, like saying "I've seen you, don't get in my way" or defensive as in "I'm actively avoiding you, but I'm not scared". Or something IDK. The atmosphere here is horrible anyway. Except when everyone clapped the NHS this evening, or should I say they cried tears of remorse because they've known the NHS is being run down for the last 15 years but looked the other way. I'm sorry, it's so hard to keep this non-political now. It's not the nature of the disease that's news any more, we've had sweeping changes to law thrust through Parliament in the last two days and so many things are changing.
