  1. Missouri's peak day as now been moved back to May 18. 47 days away.
  2. https://www.stltoday.com/lifestyles/health-med-fit/coronavirus/slu-to-test-possible-covid-19-treatments-starting-with-ebola-drug/article_9dc6bd03-2653-579d-bf5c-ab4ab05dc255.html
  3. I don't think any politician took this seriously enough early on and that the US response should have been much better. That said, this country has done much better dealing with this virus than the countries in Europe as a whole. Could we have done better? A definite yes. Has it been the complete disaster some what to make it out to be? No.
  4. How do you think government cell phone tracking of citizens and semi regular biological warfare drills would go over in this country? Is that the kind of country we should want to live in to be better prepared for a once in a century type of pandemic? Those are just some of the questions you have to answer if you want a South Korea type of response to the next pandemic like this.
  5. For the country as a whole the peak is projected to be 14 days away. The projected death toll has been dropping over the last several days, at least according to this model. https://covid19.healthdata.org/projections
  6. No country should compare their results to South Korea. South Korea was better prepared for this than any other country. That preparedness was the result of half century of being under constant threat of a biological attack from North Korea. They were able to use their years of biological attack preparedness drills to directly respond to this situation.
  7. It seems like some people on both sides are rooting for results that are best for their preferred political beliefs instead of what is best for the country.
  8. According to this, Missouri's health system should avoid being overwhelmed. At the virus's peak in MO it predicts we will have an ICU bed surplus of 250 beds. The bad news is we are still 41 days away from hitting the peak in Missouri. https://covid19.healthdata.org/projections
  9. Big get for Rhode Island. I think many thought they were headed to Providence.

  11. I know people who know Old Guy from off the board. I thought Old Guy was an act before I was informed who he actually was and what he did/use to do. This was all long before any of this stuff came up. This is the stuff he did/does for a living. If I recall correctly he has worked both in the public sector and in the private sector. I think he and Fauci actually worked together at one point. That doesn’t mean I agree with him about everything on this topic, but his opinion is informed and it is a topic he has expertise in. His posts on this topic shouldn’t be cavalierly dismissed as many seem to be more than willing to do. He knows more about epidemics/pandemics than anyone else posting on this board.
