Default COVID-19 Deaths: Second one in WA, Second in Nation 03/01/2020.

I'm thinking it's like the serial killer thing back in the late 1970's, we thought we had a lot of serial killers here, when it was just a matter of being quicker on recognizing pattern murders than other parts of the country. We're on it in detecting it among the critically ill, testing a bit faster and that's while we're finding them and that's why the ratio is insanely high for mortality among those confirmed, still at 25% with this second one. (IN other words, it's NOT actually 25%, we're just testing the serious cases at a higher rates.)

It's out in the general population.

First patient announced in Highlands, NC. Real close to my location.

Highlands is comprised of very wealthy citizens who have the time and means to travel. Aside from that point .... if anyone believes the virus is not coming to their small town or your rural area ... think again.

Stay healthy my friends !

so, today it's 9 dead, 27 confirmed cases, which include the 9 dead.

They're spot on the testing. I doubt Washington State is the only one with deaths. I just think our department of health is better at identifying and testing them.

Default WA State, instructions and changes from employers

Have you received new instructions and changes in procedures directly relating to your employer?

You don't have to share your company or agency name specifically, but mentioning what field may help.

I'm curious as to how serious it's being taken by employers who are going to have to foot the bills.

Default WA State, how much faith do you have in our Officials

Seems odd that we're spot on, in finding cases of deaths, way ahead of others, which are likely having deaths that haven't been identified. Maybe it's again a matter of Death and Taxes, with Washington being higher, but it's definitely some sort of indication.

I misread the question. I thought it was asking my opinion of them in general.

Well, this goes back to the basics and several years in the making.

They set themselves up for failure for starters thru inept policies and laws that has driven out responsible tax payers and replaced them with homeless camps and illegals and sanctuary city policies, and legalizing and promoting street drugs. This makes a scenario ripe for problems.

So that sets the stage.

Now that there is a crisis, especially a public health crisis, it will spread out of control.

They have proven themselves completely inept and caught flat footed with a know infection spreading the world. Greater Seattle has a significant Asian population so they should have been proactive and making preparations. Now they are behind and playing catchup.

This is bad, the worst in the nation, and will only get worse. The rest of the nation is demonstrating similar ineptitude, but WA and CA and HI with such huge Asian populations should have been particularly attentive.

We are sanitizing like mad, I am the only one gloving when not in surgery. Have started to hear from referring offices who are going to be closing for "a week or two". We are asking people when confirming if they have any flu symtpoms. Have had to cancel a couple of appointments for people running fevers.

We are still ordering masks amd gloves from multiple vendors as they are all limiting what can be ordered.

I have noticed the traffic has lightened considerable in the last two days.

Default Pierce County case.

Looks like that damn WuFlu isn't respecting the King/Pierce county line.

A transmission took place, likely within Pierce County.

So, Pierce, King, Snohomish, and Spokane.

Is it hitting Thurston yet?

Default Crickets chirping in the hardest hit state?

Washington formerly had a lot of preppers. I figure many moved out when our gun laws changed, and they followed those who left because of the increased taxes.

03/12/2020 after 5 PM. Southern Puget Sound, mostly suburban.

I write this hours after our Governor shut down the schools for six weeks, for over half the students in the state. He said if necessary the National Guard will be activated to distribute lunches to the FAMILIES in need because of the loss of the school lunch program. There's discussion regarding daycare for 1st Responders and Medical Staff.

I work in Tacoma. In our area, I notice very little changes, but parking is getting easier day by day.

My team includes a few of us in the danger category. We are still at work when others are telecommuting because our jobs couldn't be done that way.

I am worried about my adult daughter, she's sick at her home. She's an otherwise healthy person but caught something, possibly the regular flu. i am really, really worried about her, but the reality is I get even a regular flu, I'm in deep crap. I made sure she's stocked up on items needed.

One of my sons who works in a grocery store said that the food is still coming in, no drop in quality and people are acting normally but seeing someone in a mask isn't unusual. Another son works in a different kind of store. They've had odd requests for the usual items that are coming up short. Even though it was unlikely they'd have them, people still ask.

Stretches of formerly busy I-5 are now easy travel during what were formerly peak times.

My favorite restaurants had fewer customers.

Heard medical offices are rationing their N95 masks.

Glad some dire rumors that were being accepted were incorrect, for now.

Down here in Lewis County, we're mostly wandering around with a "duh" look on the faces. Those of us who actually follow things are concerned, but the vast majority of people are just buying toilet paper and bleach and trying to figure out what to do with it.

Glad to see that some schools are closing, but think it needs to be all of them.

I live up in ashford, and spend alot of time up in my 40 acres across the rd from my home of 40 years It has been really quiet on the hiway going to the park, MT RAINIER] Which is fine with me, Noticed alot of helecopter traffic flying at night right around 10 pm the last 3 nights. So far no one up here is sick but that could change, I would like to see them test the park employees when the test kits are available, because they deal with tourist from all over the world, And if anyone test,s positive shut down the park just like the schools.

Well, ALL Washington Schools are closed. Heard from someone who got the idea of hitting Winco at midnight that it was obvious he wasn't the only one, many other people there. A relative hit an Albertsons at 10 PM. Grabbed last two water-DISTILLED-as I use it for my CPAP. I guess many restaurants are empty or low capacity during prime dining hours.

Staff telling me they're hitting shockingly empty stretches in normally busy areas.

Saw and IT person today, busy as Hell. Everyone wants to work from home.

Southern Puget Sound Region.

Posted on a local forum, canít verify itís true so take that into consideration:


FROM A FRIEND IN SEATTLE A NOTE TO THOSE OF US NOT QUITE EFFECT YET.
This is our time to shine. Let be the comunity we all strive to be.


Coronavirus Pep Talk! Itís hard to strike the balance between freaking out and under-reacting. It may help to remember a few things:

1. Public Health and your personal health are not the same thing. The health of individuals and the health of the population are connected, obviously, but the focus matters. The response to coronavirus (covid-19) is a public health response. The goal is to protect the community as a whole. Your role as an individual is to do your small part to cooperate in the larger project, for the good of the whole community. Think of it as part of your civic duty. A war effort without the war.

2. As an individual, you donít have to be any more scared of this new virus than you were of the viruses you already knew about. If your immune system is not compromised, if you do not have a health condition that puts you at risk, if you are not part of a particularly vulnerable group, then you are probably going to be fine. If, on the other hand, you are already at greater than average risk from something like the flu, then this virus is probably also more dangerous for you.

3. If you are individually at risk, the recommendations for you Ė stay home; avoid large gatherings; vigilant handwashing Ė are to protect yourself from getting sick.

4. For the rest of us who are not worried about getting sick: your individual risk of getting sick is not the point. The point of ďsocial distancingĒ (work from home if you can; stay off public transit, especially at busy times; donít hold large gatherings) is to slow down the rate of transmission of the virus in the general public. We know the covid-19 virus is circulating in the US. We can assume lots of people have been and will be exposed to it. Every time you get on a bus or go to a meeting, you increase the odds that the virus gets passed from one person to another. Again: itís not about preventing you from getting sick. It is about giving covid-19 fewer opportunities to multiply.

5. So, if this virus is already out there, and most people who get it have mild symptoms, why does it matter if it spreads slowly or quickly? For one thing, if fewer people get sick then fewer people will get dangerously sick, and then even fewer people will die. Second, slowing it down buys time, and time really matters, especially at this early point in this outbreak. Remember that this virus is brand new in humans. There is no vaccine. There is no treatment. There is no natural immunity in anybody in the population. There is still a lot we donít know about exactly how it moves and what it does. Buying time means delaying a massive outbreak until we are closer to having effective treatment and closer to having a vaccine. Buying time means avoiding massive stress on the health care system that could affect many more people with all kinds of health needs. Buying time might mean that some natural immunity builds up Ė people who have been exposed this year might be less vulnerable next year.

6. For most of us, this is serious, but not dangerous. Your role is critical because protecting public health is a group effort that takes massive cooperation. The way you think about this and talk to others about it can either encourage or discourage cooperation. Please try to encourage each other. Find a source of information you can trust. Ask questions. Listen to science. Use common sense and compassion. Donít let fear make you cynical. Donít let cynicism numb your sense of responsibility to other people. Stay connected, just not too close. Hang in there. Wash your hands.

There is a significant lack of masks, hand sanitizer and toilet paper. Other than that, the chip aisle is seriously depleted at the local Fred Meyer. If the worst that happens is someone can't get their Flaming Hot Cheetos, we got off. Seriously, taking the bus and traveling just for needed health care, there are a lot of sick people. Many of them seem to be restaurant workers, particularly in fast food, and hotel/casino staff. Draw your own conclusions.

Had to pick up meds at Walmart last week. Group of Realtree-clad young persons came in and formed a chain to load carts, obviously with the intent to get in and out. A group of us older and some disabled people were doing a shop for what we could carry on the bus. These young people who obviously had their own agenda reorganized themselves so they could continue loading, but began asking if they could reach down anything for us, or if we needed something they were taking that was running out.

Preppers. God bless you all. Me and my little bag of add-water-only corn bread, cans of corned beef and VegAll are sincerely thankful. It's not just that they shared, it's that they did so in a manner that made us all feel as if our lives count, rather than being triaged by the general public as unworthy to waste resources on.

Default What? Bars and restaurants ordered closed in Washington? Screening in agencies?

Is it true? All bars and restaurants closed.

I wonder how many people who not only live pay check to pay check, but based on that day's tips are now out of work.

Casinos closed?
