The info I follow for Florida is from the Department of Health. I linked to it in the other thread but here it is again - https://fdoh.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/8d0de33f260d444c852a615dc7837c86

Over 4000 cases today. The number of confirmed cases jumped to 16 in my county. They stopped putting up the number of infected non-residents though... I think that info is important? These are people that are free to leave the state (since our Governor actively refuses to enact a stay-at-home order) and return home depending on where they came from. So I think tracking them should be a thing. Maybe they just removed the info available to the average person.

The testing site that opened yesterday in Sarasota is closing after today because not enough people are using it and they want the resources to go elsewhere. So does that mean people in Sarasota aren't sick? Or does that mean they have symptoms but aren't going to the doctor? Orrrrrrr there are enough rich people in Sarasota that they are having private testing done? Your guess is as good as mine!

Now we're up to 299 and 6 deaths in Kansas.

And Mark Blum has died from complications caused by the virus:

I'm so sorry Ponyfan. :( :hug:


Thank you. :hug:


We jumped to 41 cases in my country. 13 of these are all related to the nursing home. Also my county has had the first death from coronavirus (not my uncle. He lived in a different state.)

[Article Here]

Oklahoma now has 377 cases and 15 deaths. My county has 12 cases and our mayor is finally putting in an enforcable shelter in place order, likely to be effective Tuesday. Our governor is planning to isolate two hospitals in the state to deal with the Covid-19 cases in order to save on resources.

I'm not trying to fear monger, but a news report at lunch today said it's possible for the USA to see 200,000 deaths.

I'm not trying to fear monger, but a news report at lunch today said it's possible for the USA to see 200,000 deaths. 

deaths are going to happen either way -- I take a grain of salt to any sort of numbers, because really no one knows. All the experts are doing their best based on numbers that roll in. 200,000 sounds low if the USA has like 300+million people. That could create a false sense of security.

The most important thing is we don't want our hospital systems overloaded so there aren't deaths that could of been prevented. And not just people who might die from covid19, but people who might die because there's lack of resources and someone goes in for something completely unrelated (heart attack, car accident, etc). We don't want them picking and choosing lives, and those outlines are already in place at some hospitals...

That effects everyone -- everywhere, period. That's why I hate news stories like that. u_u; It doesn't help the public.

;) Oh and i know I'm preaching to the choir. Everyone here sounds responsible. I just hate the news.

Oh on a personal note, I'm happy that my mom only has to go in the hospital 1 day a week for exams -- and she can remotely do visits with the rest of her patients. I'm happy for her patients too. same goes for the doctors she works with, they are all rotating.

Kansas is now up to 319. And we have the first quarantine order. Chase county (SW of Emporia) has no cases, but have started a 14 day quarantine on anyone coming from hotbed areas like the KC metro area. Cops will be checking everyone who comes into the county, and if you're from one of those areas you'll be forced to quarantine.
 And country singer Joe Diffie has died from it.

I missed the first part of the governor's press conference but I did catch that he is issuing mandatory quarantine for people entering the state from Louisiana, California  and NY. The Louisiana quarantine also includes coming in by road.

Also, cases in my country jumped another 10 cases. My city extended the stay at home order and no social gatherings of any number are allowed.
