This just in from sunny downtown Bonne Terre Mo:

UPDATED: SFCHC investigating COVID-19 exposure at Bonne Terre wedding
The St. Francois County Health Center is investigating a possible COVID-19 exposure at a large gathering in Bonne Terre on Saturday, according to a release from Director Amber Elliott.

Two attendees who reside outside the state of Missouri have tested positive for COVID-19, the release said. They were symptomatic while attending the event.

The health center is working with the event organizer to identify and contact all of those who attended the event. There were about 200 people who attended the event, including from St. Francois County and other jurisdictions.

The health center confirmed Friday night that the event was a wedding. All attendees of the event will be quarantined through March 28, the release said.

China Mobile reported that they ( a Chinese wireless mobile telephone company) lost 8.5 million customers in the months of January and February of this year.

The graph they posted shows shows the customer loss in a steep falloff.

I guess that many customers decide to go with another supplier or maybe with the lock down they lost their jobs and couldn’t pay the bill.

Or they don’t need a phone now.

Or they switched to 5G

Tarrant County declares expanded restriction

This Declaration authorizes the County to commandeer or use any private property as provided by law.
Anyone know what Texas laws allow the government to seize private property in a declared emergency?

I think we have discussed that this virus might be a test of socialized medicine.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-are-th ... 1584799200

England has both a public and private healthcare system.

If you have $425 you can get a test.

It will certainly be a test of our health care system. Texas has about 45,000 hospital beds, of which, about 10%, or 4500 are ICU level beds. These are about 50% occupied at any given time, leaving a spare statewide ICU capacity of about 2250 beds.

The consistent numbers on COVID19 from Asia, to Europe, to the US, are that about 20% will develop serious symptoms, with about 5% requiring ICU level treatment, and 2% will die

California estimates that about 50% of residents could contract COVID19, but let’s be very conservative and assume that 1 in 20, or 5%, of the ~30 million Texans will become infected. Thus, 30,000,000 x 0.05 x 0.05 gives us 75,000 critically ill Texans for the 2250 available ICU beds, and 30,000 deaths. Of course, hospitals can convert some normal care beds to ICU level, but also consider that a number of doctors and nurses will fall ill. This is what is at stake in our efforts to contain the spread of the virus.

Wow. Good find. Hopefully someone can find some precedent of this.

The problem I have with all of this is there are no close locations or names mentioned. How are we to know if we have been close to someone we know that turned up exposed? How does government know that they haven’t been close enough to infect someone at a store.
Although I know someone that has passed, I wouldn’t have known it had I not seen the name of his retirement center on the news. In fact it was 4 days before media actually said where he lived and another day before we found out his name. How do they know I hadn’t visited him ( I haven’t)?

Lifesaving surgery postponed by Covid-19

It’s probably not the surgery you were thinking.

Italy no longer provides ventilators to patients over 60, says Israeli doctor.
