That's panic. At our hospital people have been coming in and stealing face masks and gloves for weeks now

I think sometimes context needs to be put in behind some of these statements. 

What context? They get one mask per day at our local hospital. They're just told they have to make it last.

We have had policy enacted and that we werent taking outside patients unless dire extreme cases for elective surgery for several weeks now. 

 

This is even before the coronavirus panic started to get bad in north america. 

 

Elective surgeries were still performed. Been a couple days since I've worked, policy for normal elective surgeries could be canceled now for all I know.

I know some people in hospitals here and they've been told they cannot use their holidays and time off in April.

Yeah I'm sure it will be the same at my hospital. I'll find out when I work what the new policies are.

 

The grocery stores are starting to see the effect of the panic as well. Shelves are emptying. 

 

I'm more worried about the people's responses to this than the virus itself.

Well in all of king country which includes seattle there are only 328 confirmed cases and 32 deaths as of yesterday. 

 

King County Public Health has confirmed cases of novel coronavirus, as seen in other parts of the world and U.S. The majority of these illnesses are mild, with fever and cough. A much smaller percentage of cases are severe and involve pneumonia, particularly in elderly people and people with underlying medical conditions. This is a quickly evolving situation and this site will be updated frequently.

 

https://kingcounty.gov/depts/health/communicable-diseases/disease-control/novel-coronavirus.aspx

I'm willing to bet that not even all those confirmed cases were hospitalized either. 

 

 

So that few cases made them run out of gloves? Sounds like it's just not a well equipped facility. 

 

Or maybe people are coming in and stealing things like our hospital which started way before the first confirmed case.

Other possibility. Since the global economy is pretty much getting shut down. Maybe they couldn't receive a large enough supply of gloves from their supplier. 

 

Trying to get gloves by other means is further becoming more difficult as the population panics and buys up as much gloves and masks as they can find.

As the virus spreads outward the percentage of serious conditions is lowering. 

 

That's preliminary but promising.

There was a point in this thread that number was 20%+. I think it's definitely very promising. Even if these numbers are completely bullshit, they have been from the start, so it is probably improving either way.

This is tentative good news, at least:

The antiviral drug remdesivir appeared to have an effect in American cruise passengers treated for the novel coronavirus in Japan, although data are limited, according to a doctor sent to Tokyo by the U.S. government.

Rear Adm. Richard Childs, an assistant surgeon general and lung specialist at the National Institutes of Health, said 14 Americans who contracted the virus on the Diamond Princess cruise ship and were treated at Japanese hospitals received the experimental drug from Gilead Sciences Inc.

Those 14 were “critically ill people and their average age is 75,” he said. “Many of them were probably going to die in a short amount of time, and two weeks later nobody has died and more than half of them have recovered. It’s just absolutely amazing.” But he cautioned, “It’s going to take us a while to figure out what the impact of the drug has been.”

Startling fact:

  •  2,547 new cases and 250 new deaths in Italy. Highest number of deaths per day in the world ever(including China at its peak) has been reported in Italy in each of the last four days.

Weird... microbiologynerd in the thread he made said there's only 50 deaths a day globally.  That fucking shmuck.

More news from Italy:

  •  Italy's health system is overwhelmed:

    - "We're close to the point of no return for intensive care beds in Lombardy. We have 15 to 20 intensive care beds left. With 85 new people entering ICU every day and 2 or 3 leaving, we're close to the point of no return. "There are no more ambulances" - Lombardy Welfare Councilor Gallera added - "and therefore someone will have to wait late in the evening." [source] 732 patients are currently treated in intensive care in Lombardy, and 76 new deaths were reported in the region today [source]

    - In Bergamo, "deaths have quintupled from a week ago. There is a burial every half hour" said Councilor for Cemetery Services Giacomo Angeloni. "There aremany elderly people at home with breathing difficulties. They are not hospitalized because the hospitals are full" said the mayor of Alzano Lombardo Carmelo Bertocchi [source]

Yeah if that number held constant I think the panic would be more warranted. 

 

Ii expect the confirmed cases to rise rapidly soon. It will be more important to watch acuity cause it will simply be the numbers shown in the news. 

 

I swear I read or watched something yesterday and some places in canada were setting up outside coronavirus test sites. 

Doesn't mean much given incubation period and cases confirmed. The US is still in very early stages.

 

Didn't get reported much either, but last week there was a case of black rain in Japan.
