They would be waiting for FDA emergency authorization. FDA approval would take a much longer time.

Watched a terrific 10 minute interview with Dr. Fauci on YouTube this morning. Please keep him bathed in a constant anti-viral/radioactive stasis field. If we ever lost him the whole ship would go down. He is an absolute rock in all this.

Evidently there is a 15 minute antibody finger prick blood test that was developed in Germany to detect Covid-19 antibodies. There is a company that has them ready to ship but is awaiting FDA approval.
This one?

I can't find it now, but I read an article earlier today about Heisenberg Germany, the hardest hit district in Germany, doing random tests and finding ~14% of those tested having antibodies.

The conclusion I read was that when the shutdown order ends in Heisenberg there will be a second spike in cases and deaths when people not previously exposed to the virus get it.

My guess is the news from Chicago is that they're only testing those people who are sick, whereas in Germany the study tried to do a random test of the population.

Found this: https://www.t-online.de/gesundheit/kran ... fnung.html
So far, more than 1,000 people in over 400 households have been examined in the Heinsberg district, about half of the tested households and the tests of 509 people have already been evaluated. According to Professor Streeck, this corresponds to a representative sample. The scientists found that 15 percent of the population's immunity could be demonstrated in the Gangelt community.

Japan has earmarked $2.2 billion of its record economic stimulus package to help its manufacturers shift production out of China as the coronavirus disrupts supply chains between the major trading partners.
There's an awful lot of "blame China" stuff floating around, but this seems more of a "diversify so that when something happens in one place the whole supply chain doesn't collapse" move, which is a good idea.

With the four or five year crusade to "streamline" supply chains, almost everything has become "just in time". Which means when the Target store sells out of toilet paper or the medical equipment supplier runs out of N95 masks there aren't huge warehouses full of them just sitting around to replenish. And while toilet paper isn't a great example most things are made (or have components made) in China, so when China shuts down the ripples affect everyone.

If the product you buy isn't made in China, odds are the raw materials used in production of the product were made in China. One of the first things investors asked of our CEO was how much of our raw materials are made in China. We were fortunate to be less dependent on China than most in our sector.

Its pretty sickening how the Chi-coms own our supply chains and Politicians. Stealing our intellectual property. Everyone was getting rich, both sides of the aisle. Even more sickening is the fentanyl they are bringing in here. Now this. While Taiwan was trying to tell the W.H.O. that this virus was contagious and dangerous the Chi-Com's and W.H.O. said "there's nothing to see here". Meanwhile 400,000 traveled to the US from China before the President shut down the flights.

Now the left and "Orangeman Bad" networks are all singing in harmony to blame the President.

I'm not sure what GS's deal was, but the longer this shutdown lasts, the more concerned I am about how frayed our nerves are getting. The other day there was an article about how the divorce rate had a huge spike in Wuhan after the lockdown there was lifted and I let out a nervous laugh at that knowing that we're going to get stressed even though we're not under a complete lockdown. I'm personally fine because I spend most of my time alone anyway, but I've been checking up on friends who are more sociable since even before the stay-at-home order began to be sure they're alright and lately I've been a bit worried that that's no longer enough.

I actually think it would, but not necessarily 9 months from now. It's human nature to want to become immortal in a way through children and nothing brings that thought to the forefront more than societal traumas on this scale that involves death. We'll have to see if we see a baby boom around Christmas, but one thing I am expecting to see once this is all over is an increase in dating and weddings by people who feel the need to move their lives along after such a trauma, especially if someone they knew died from COVID-19.

It's a numbers overload for everyone, and the numbers will only get worse for a while, but for the first time tonight I noticed MN might be 50th out of 50 for confirmed cases per 100K. Keep it up, folks.

Our family generally gets along fairly well, but unlike in MN our house here doesn't have as much space to get away from each other. Fortunately enough everyone has been very accepting of the situation and we've been slightly more accommodating and patient. Two teenage boys (16 and 17) that were usually good for one poke fest per day have had very few since our quarantine started on the 16th. And here a quarantine is a quarantine. Can't see any friends that are not in our compound, and so most of their friends and both girlfriends are off limits until at least the 1st week of May.

But they can still play basketball, swim, ride their bikes, talk to friends online and we're getting close to watching every movie Netflix has.

Not worried about a divorce. A- Been there done that, won’t do it again. Poisoning will most likely happen before a divorce... B- I have a shop with a fridge and a TV so I just go out there.

Also, not worried about a baby boom here. 4 kids ranging from 13 down to 5 weeks old. ‘Tis ain’t happening!

Jesus, no particular increase in amount of tests completed per day, and number of daily confirmed cases just shot from low 90s to 194.
That 194 number was apparently an error. Has been revised to 109.

As long as we stay in first place in cases per capita, which we still are, I'm proud of the state (despite some idiots still having big gatherings).

Meanwhile, our neighbors to the west , South Dakota, had 104 yesterday. The rate per 100k is alarming. Most of the cases are from the local meat packing company in SF, which has finally decided to close down( a week too late) It is going to get worse in SF since a lot of things are still open. The retail store where my wife works is closed to the public, and the have 7 people there processing online orders. There has been talk about curbside pick-up, which I hope they don't go to. Just hoping my wife doesn't somehow get it.

That meat packing story is crazy. What's the number if one doesn't count those cases? Does that plant skew the ratio enough?

When you tell somebody somethin', it depends on what part of the country you're standin' in... as to just how dumb you are.

It does blow it up that is for sure. There are 527 cases in Minnehaha County, which is SF. Lincoln County has 46 cases, which includes a small part of southern SF. 293 cases are directly linked to the Smithfield plant. I would bet a lot of the other cases are from contact with those who work at the plant. There are 730 total cases in SD, so a majority of the cases are in the SF area, which is where the majority of the people live in that state. It will get worse since Smithfield was late on the ball handling this, and SD did not have a stay at home order, so people are still roaming around town.

Turns out I'm about three degrees of separation from a pig farmer with ~1500 pigs ready to go to Smithfield in Whioux Falls...

So if anyone wants a 1/2 or a whole pig, I have contact info.

Gotta feel for the farmers who are being hurt by all the disruptions in the markets right now. Sad when you see all that excess milk being poured down the drain. Then on the other hand eggs are in short supply and much more expensive than normal.

How will it get processed? Do I get a literal half of a pig that I bring to a butcher, like a deer?

He's trying to find a local processor. He's in the Northfield area. I mean, if you want just a side of pork that's probably easier.

I would imagine there are enough butcher shops, etc that can process this many hogs, especially with hunting season being so far behind us. There is a cool video on YouTube where a guy goes through the entire process for butchering a hog and I highly recommend it. I also watch the cow one, that one was 70 minutes long. Anyway, just got a half pig and smoked the biggest ham for Easter and I am not a ham person but this might be in the Top 5 of smoked meat cuts I have ever done. I injected it before smoking it, even my kids had extras and leftovers twice.

I'm surprised they allowed gyms and workout places to stay open as long as they did. The one I was going to (Anytime Fitness) encouraged everyone to wipe the machines and the weights down after each use, but not everyone did. Looking back, using the gym prior to the shutdown was probably my biggest risk of getting sick.

I went to the gym on March 11, the same day the NBA and NHL has their last games. I completely agree that looking back it was my biggest risk. I knew it was a little risky then, but wasn’t so worried. Knowing what I know now, I don’t know how I could be so dumb.

I went to the gym and swam just a day or two before they closed them. The pool was pretty empty and I asked a woman who was getting in what percentage of chlorine it took to kill Covid19.

Don’t beat yourself up to much.

So as late as February 29, Dr. Fauci was telling Americans it was okay to engage in three of the most risk-for-infection behaviors imaginable: crowded malls, crowded movie theaters, and sweaty gyms.

I haven’t really beaten myself up. We didn’t know much. To be fair to Fauci, a lot changed in two weeks. Feb 29 to Mar 11 felt like 6 months. The world changed what felt like hourly.

If I could go to the gym right now I would. I’d obviously be as safe as possible. I’m just starting to get a little soft around the edges. It’s going to take some work after this quarantine to get back in shape.

Get yourself a pair of these, hop on youtube and find videos of how to use, and then find a tree to hang them on and get creative. You can work every muscle in your body and if you structure your workout properly, you can build strength and muscle mass.

(I recommend calisthenic movement, fitness faqs, and Darek Woś Caliathletics for solid youtube channels for ring workouts)

Considering the median age of the dead is 88 years old (literally), and the Walz data shows that Shelter for the Vulnerable has nearly the exact same death rate as his shelter in place order (again literally), I wouldn't be too concerned if you are healthy.

I don't think my orthopedist would encourage that given the state of both my rotator cuffs. There are a number of orthopedic reasons why swimming, i.e. non-load bearing, is my preferred exercise.

I was more playing around. Point being the experts were off so how in the world could the Joe Schmoes be on?

I mean as late as March 1 all the NY experts were saying game on, nothing to see here. Oops.

Interesting article stating that placing patients on stomach improves oxygen absorption and is saving lives.
"It's such a simple thing to do, and we've seen remarkable improvement. We can see it for every single patient."

It says one hospital is even having non-sedated patients lie on their stomachs for up to 4 hours per day.

I'm more risk averse. I wonder if the U would let some of us do a second half season ticket package (+ maybe 100 bucks to hold the seat for the year), and they're free to open up my tickets for the first half games.
