Italy, Spain, and France seem to be on the other side of the peak for daily deaths. They day over day rate is now decreasing. I hope the trend continues. It will be definitely a good sign.

USA and Germany, on the other hand, are still on the rise for daily death count. I hope that we follow the pattern seen elsewhere in the world and peak sooner than later.
My fear is we will misconstrue the drop in daily fatalities as an "all clear" to lift the shelter in place measures.  It's almost a guarantee we will make that mistake.

It is out of control throughout the world. I read South Korea had an increase in cases.

Police in Russia shoved a man into a van and forced him to abandon his dog in a park for violating the city's lockdown order

I guess this is real on Russia. If you walk your dog then you might be shoved in a van by the police. Yikes

I hear you. I have had to go out on Friday for essential business and the observations I made in a local stores parking lot, cars on the road, and employees leaving the office building etc... I could see that there is this wide gap between people who are taking this seriously and have not left home in three weeks, and people who are just going about life as usual and thinking that it does not affect them.

It won't surprise me at all if we act too eager to call the whole thing off and may be pay a higher price in time.

Interesting side effect from Coronavirus and the CARES Act: An urgent need for COBOL programmers due to ancient State tech:

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2020/04/05/new_jersey_seeks_cobol_volunteers/

My .02c

I finally got around to reading an article on this, and the thing that blows my mind is...

THEY ARE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS. 

Yes, that's right.  Come work for the NJ state government in the IT dept for FREEEEE!!!!!!

I guess they are figuring that most COBOL programmers are retirement age, so maybe they'll volunteer for the state out of the goodness of their hearts (and risk catching COVID-19 in the process).  Hmm...

Broke my rule tonight, flipped on Vice News Tonight, first segment, interview with Surgeon General Adams.  First question, is this under control...  Second question, "if I ask you about Hydroxychloroquine...". Adams answer " ... The important thing to understand here, 80% of the people that go on a ventilator, at least by NYC data, are not coming off a ventilator ... ".

Shouldn't have broke the rule.

Health professionals I know and other people are not recommending gloves for the public unless you properly know how to use/handle/dispose of them.

You know it's bad when they are asking 80-90 year olds to come out of retirement to volunteer for the state's IT dept.  For such a highly taxed state like New Jersey, you would think they had room in their budget to pay IT contractors.

Guardian Article: Trump was warned in January of Covid-19's devastating impact, memos reveal

Donald Trump was warned at the end of January by one of his top White House advisers that coronavirus had the potential to kill hundreds of thousands of Americans and derail the US economy, unless tough action were taken immediately, new memos have revealed.

The memos were written by Trump’s economic adviser, Peter Navarro, and circulated via the National Security Council widely around the White House and federal agencies.

They show that even within the Trump administration alarm bells were ringing by late January, at a time when the president was consistently downplaying the threat of Covid-19.

I believe last time stats were released Irvine had 33 cases. The city of Anaheim took over the #1 spot with covid cases.

Important enough to mention just a week later on the February 5th State of the Union...Maybe if he wasn't bogged down with the pointless impeachment hearings.  However, He was already on it.
