    Fuck our unions up here were strong until Reagan & union busters came through . Now with all the right to work BS its a joke. There still strong with numbers but only because states are banning together for more numbers & joining pension funds etc. Pretty much made the same 20yrs ago that they do today. Sad really. Its still not a bad living for alot of people. Especially if ur at the top of the trades. Pretty decent money & great benefits with a good retirement if u can live longer than the estimated 5yrs of retiring.

    Yeah, it'll be your local UPS or Amazon driver that infects you, on ANY pkg or letter. Still worth wiping with 99% alcohol-soaked rag IMO. Or just set it on fire inside the mailbox.

    US cases at 43,000 and deaths at 579. The last four days have seen a crazy spike in case numbers but that's most likely a delay effect from previously undetected cases as people are now getting access to testing.

    https://www.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashb...23467b48e9ecf6



    The trends on this graph suggest the US will be #1 in deaths within two weeks.

    Italy has some nutty figures: 64,000 confirmed cases and 6,100 deaths. That's nearly a 10% fatality rate. Could well be that they just aren't testing people with mild or no symptoms so the real (lower) fatality rate is masked. However, there have been some anecdotal cases of patients not getting timely or adequate care (e.g. put on ventilators) but it doesn't sound like the medical system has been overrun yet. Could still happen. And Italy, particularly the north, is similar to the US so it serves as a warning.

    China did not report all of their deaths and are likely falsifying their current numbers.

    The US now has the most number of known cases in the world, as expected.

    A strong argument can be made that the top 3 front runners of the US, Italy, and China actually have much higher unknown numbers of cases due to major lack of testing and/or gov't info suppression, and that's a "Duh..." but these are the figures we have. It may be that the real numbers are triple in all three cases but that leaves the relative situation roughly the same.

    One piece of good news is that the last four days is showing a slowdown in growth of the infection pool in the US. This is where logarithmic graphs shine. Like the one below. I realize not everyone here in this meat head forum is math savvy, lol... but this particular bit of numerical gobbledygook is worth squinting at and thinking about for a minute. The straight line slopes on a logarithmic graph reflect the degree of exponential growth, so different curves can be compared meaningfully and changes in any individual curve can be spotted, that on a linear (i.e. ordinary) graph would be impossible to see. The FT journalist here has helpfully put the relevant dashed lines in the graph for that comparison -- "doubles every 2 days", etc. What we have now with the US is a shift from a horrible 2-day doubling trend to something less horrible. This is almost certainly due to the massive social distancing and economic shutdown finally showing up in the data, after an expected delay of a week or longer due to the virus incubation period.

    Anyway, the US appears to be doubling every 3 days instead of 2. Don't be confused by the "US" curve being next to the "2 days" dashed line -- it's the slope that matters, not the position on the graph, and the slope now matches the "3 days" line.

    The goal is to flatten that slope, obviously, and act like we're South Korea. We may not be as calm, cool, and collected as them but we should be able to catch up.




    Excellent source of graphs like that one:
