Although Pence did give a three word response to Peter Alexander's legitimate question. It wasn't informative or very comforting, but at least he didn't attack his questioner.

38 people, including 21 inmates, test positive for coronavirus in New York City jails

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/coronaviru ... 020-03-22/
At least 38 people have tested positive for coronavirus inside New York City jails, officials said, signaling the largest outbreak in American jails since the pandemic began. For weeks, activists and health officials have feared the virus would spread rapidly throughout the country's prison system.

Jacqueline Sherman, the interim chairwoman of the New York City Board of Correction, sent a letter to state and city officials on Saturday urging them to release inmates at higher risk of dying from an infection and to "rapidly" decrease the prison population.

"Fewer people in the jails will save lives and minimize transmission among people in custody as well as staff. Failure to drastically reduce the jail population threatens to overwhelm the City jails' healthcare system as well (as) its basic operations," Sherman wrote in the letter, which was addressed to district attorneys from the city's five boroughs, the state's chief judge and the state and city corrections commissioners.

The letter said 21 inmates, 12 Department of Corrections employees and five Central Health Services workers have contracted the virus. There are an additional 58 others being monitored for potential exposure, according to the letter.

Some of you may remember that Okeechobee County is one of the two Central Florida counties that I said would have not only acquitted George Zimmerman, but the jury would have carried him outside on their shoulders like the hero they thought him to be. And there would have been a parade in his honor.

It is actually not much different than the stay-in-place type orders in place in many states:

https://news.trust.org/item/20200322163636-m0qkr/
For at least the next two weeks, people will not be allowed to form groups of more than two in public unless they live together in the same household or the gathering is work-related, she added.
As part of a bundle of stricter rules, restaurants can only offer takeaway services and hairdressers and beauty, massage and tattoo parlours must close.

Went to Fred Meyer (Kroger). Shelves were lighter than normal, but except for toilet paper enough to pick from. The self checkout line was light, but new changes. Some stands were closed to avoid close contact. Also, if I used my own bag it had to stay in the cart, no contact with the carousel.

Just heard on MSNBC that Rand Paul has tested positive :violin:

Edited to show current numbers some of which for some reason are lower now. US deaths higher.

New York cases today. They must still be doing a lot of testing.

New York Confirmed cases- 15,801

New cases so far today- +5,429

Total deaths- 114

Most because of this increase the USA now ranks 3rd behind China and Italy.

USA Confirmed cases- 32,356

New cases so far today- +8,149

Total deaths- 414

College students in Florida test positive for coronavirus after spring break trip

https://www.wkbn.com/news/coronavirus/c ... um=twitter
Five University of Tampa students are recovering after testing positive for COVID-19 during spring break, the school said.

The university said the students were traveling together and with other UT students during spring break before testing positive. The school didn’t say where they went during their break or if they lived on or off campus.

The school did send its well wishes.

“We sincerely wish our students, and any others who may be affected, a full and rapid recovery,” UT posted on Twitter Saturday night.

Can someone tell Mr. Culpepper that shooting your brains out and then being cremated is another way to kill the virus?

My ex-sister-in-law, the only one I 'm still on speaking terms with, just send me a video telling me drinking warm water with lemon will kill the virus. I warned her not to take any advice not from Fauci, her own doctor or her county health dept because of all the false information. She's a sweet kid (well, not a kid anymore) but she was never the brightest bulb. Sadly, that makes her vulnerable to this crap and getting herself or her grandkids infected.

A New York hospital system is barring visitors, including partners, during childbirth
From CNN Health’s Michael Nedelman
A health care system in New York is no longer allowing visitors, including partners, for its patients about to give birth, citing coronavirus risk.

"For the time being, we really do need to exclude all visitors, including partners, for women admitted in labor," Dr. Dena Goffman, chief of obstetrics at Columbia University Medical Center, said Sunday during a daily leadership briefing for the NewYork-Presbyterian health care system.
Goffman described the move as a "very difficult decision and not one taken lightly."

NewYork-Presbyterian has also made the decision to test all women in labor who are admitted to labor and delivery units for Covid-19, regardless of symptoms.

Goffman said there had been a number of patients with little to no symptoms upon admission, and others with atypical symptoms, who were later found to test positive for the novel coronavirus. Moreover, "many symptoms of labor and of pregnant women really mimic some of the symptoms of Covid-19," including fatigue and shortness of breath, she added.

"As a result, these women were not identified by our usual screening, infection prevention and control, or testing processes, and therefore our practices for protection for Covid-19 were not implemented. In this case, many staff members were exposed," Goffman said.

Testing women in labor, she added, would allow doctors to isolate newborns who may have been exposed to the virus, thus preventing outbreaks in neonatal ICUs and well-baby nurseries.

Absent in-person visitors for these patients, Goffman said the hospital system was looking into ways to allow families to participate virtually in childbirth, perhaps through tablet computers.

"We recognize that we will need to provide additional support for moms, as well as mom and baby pairs, as they're in the hospital through the duration of their stay," she said.

Chloroquine for COVID-19: Cutting Through the Hype
While some of the hype has been fuelled by a document generated outside the scientific literature, chloroquine’s potential in treating COVID-19 is gaining traction in the medical community.

The drug has a long track record in medicine, having been used since the 1940s as an antimalarial. The modern drug is made from the bark of the Cinchona plant, which was taken as an herbal remedy by indigenous Peruvians four centuries ago to treat fever. And there are some early indications it could work against SARS-CoV-2 infections.

For instance, a study in France published on March 20 in the International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents described the treatment of 42 patients hospitalized with COVID-19, 26 of whom received a version of chloroquine called hydroxychloroquine and 16 of whom received routine care. Of the 20 patients who took the antimalarial and completed the study, six also received azithromycin, an antibiotic. All six of these patients were free of SARS-CoV-2 by the fifth day post-treatment, while seven of 14 patients who took hydroxychloroquine alone were negative for the virus, and two of 16 control patients were no longer infected.

Small-scale experiments in which chloroquine has been given to COVID-19 patients in China and Australia have also shown encouraging results as far as shortening the course of the disease.

Larger clinical trials will be necessary to determine how effective the drug is. Researchers at the University of Minnesota have embarked on a study including 1,500 people to probe the drug’s effectiveness further in preventing the development of COVID-19 after people are exposed to SARS-CoV-2. The results could be available in a matter of weeks, Jakub Tolar, the dean of the University of Minnesota Medical School and vice president for clinical affairs, tells Reuters, and might indicate whether it’s worth launching a larger trial.
https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opin ... ied--67301


I'm baffled by the last paragraph. Not that I know much about drug trials, but wouldn't a study involving 1,500 patients be considered a "large" one? Why would an even larger study be needed, especially if the results are anywhere near as encouraging as the very small studies are suggesting?
Am I being detained?

Officials alerting Ruby Princess passengers others tested positive

https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/c ... 890964001/
A third Princess Cruise ship has become subject to the chaos of coronavirus.

After two members of the Princess Cruises fleet, Diamond Princess and Grand Princess, were forced into quarantine as a result of the rampant virus, Ruby Princess' former passengers now have to worry that they too could have been exposed to COVID-19.

Passengers on the Ruby Princess, including approximately 570 Americans, disembarked Thursday in Sydney, Australia, and the cruise line announced Friday four people, including three guests and a crew member, who had traveled on the ship, tested positive for COVID-19.

All four people reported flu-like symptoms during the cruise and were in isolation on board with their travel companions.

At least 30 cruise ships are at sea right now. Here's what it's like on board

https://www.cnn.com/travel/article/crui ... index.html
The Norwegian Jewel is believed to be heading for Hawaii, but there's no official word on its final destination and the ship has already been turned away from several ports.

"We had hesitations," Jay Martinez tells CNN Travel about their preboarding apprehension. The couple looked into amending their plans but were told they were locked in.

"Up until the day that we left, that was not an option," says Jay, "And with us having so much money invested into our honeymoon, we had no other choice but to board the ship."

The couple feared their itinerary might be curtailed, but they never expected that they'd end up stranded at sea, their ship scrambling for a place to dock.
