Great play by the President giving that address at 1500, one hour before the market closes on a Friday.

"You can get a test. Anyone can get a test." -Trump

A distant friend of my wife, came down with flu like symptoms. Went to a walk in clinic. They gave her a flu test, which came back negative. Doctor was alarmed with her symptoms, sent her to the ER to get tested for Coronavirus. The ER gave her a chest xray, which looked very bad. Said yeah, she needs the coronavirus test. Except they dont do the test at that hospital. Sent her with a doctors order to Quest labs. Quest labs asked her for travel history. Since she hasn't been to Europe or China, they said she does not qualify for the test and will not get one.

My wifes friends said there were 12 people in the ER that all, at the same time, went to quest labs for the same coronavirus test, all with the same symptoms. NONE of them were offered the test because none of them have traveled!!!


12 people, in the span of 2 hours in the same hospital, all with the same symptoms, all who had negative flu test, and all were denied a test.

This occurred in Florida. What an absolute cluster fuck.

Its out there folks. We are being lied to. The 1500 number that the CDC gives us is no better than Chinese propaganda. The governor of Ohio said that his experts believe that his state has at least 100,000 cases, just in Ohio, based on what they are seeing in the hospitals currently.

Well, bubba, either the labs out there get the message, or we’re fucked. I think they’ll get the message especially when people are driving into the Wal-Mart parking lot and getting a free test without going to the ED. That’s the plan!
Worked in South Korea, we learned from them.

It seems toilet paper is not the only hot commodity. Surge in gun sales as well, apparently many first time buyers have realized the value of protecting their T.P.

I read somewhere else that some of these first time buyers were perplexed by the 10 day waiting period in CA and the overall difficulty in obtaining a firearm for defense, they want it now, goddamn it Smile

Different problem, but a few days ago my wife talked to a doc who had requested a test from the county public health department for a patient who had just returned from Rome. The initial response was no test "because Rome isn't in Italy."

Ok, his post mirrors my post from page 2 of this thread. Except it wasn’t my wife’s friend, it was me. Jan 21st, I had pneumonia out of nowhere with a high fever and a dry cough, sick like I’ve never been, and they wouldn’t test me because I hadn’t been out of the country. I’ve had pneumonia before, this was different, deeper in the lungs, very dry, almost impossible to cough out.

I’m really starting to think I already had it, based on what I’m reading and hearing from folks that have gone through it. They’re saying now that it’s likely been in the Puget Sound area for nearly two months now, and I think I might be one of those cases that flew under the radar.

The 100K figure was not based on what they are seeing at hospitals. It was based on a fringe theory that if there are 2 or more people who test positive for the virus as a result of community spread (not travel-related) then you can assume that 1% of the population has it. This is not at all a proven theory.

If 100,000 people were infected, there would be several thousand people at the hospitals, and officials are not seeing anything close to that.

And now we can add Utah to the list of states for closing public schools. Gov. Herbert just announced a two week closure.

The rumor mill is churning big time around here. These are just some of things I have read from Faebook -

"Federal agents are going door to door!"

"The police helicopter has been up all day looking for looters"

"They are not telling us everything, my friend is a nurse and she said they have had hundreds of cases."

The last one is my favorite. I personally know 5 nurses in this area who work in 4 different hospitals and not one has seen anything of the sort.

College Closings - Discussion on NPR about students on campus who are there with no financial support from home, no income, no home to go to when campus closes, and then told to go on spring break and don't come back.

How is this the college's problem?

Ok, pure absolute insane panic has hit Austin, TX. People were already stocking up and buying all of the toilet paper and hand sanitizer, but today they announced the first cases in Austin and now it is full blown panic.

I guess people think Coronavirus will take out our gas supply, power grid, and water supply will all be interrupted. I went to the grocery store to just get dinner for tonight and I NEEDED gas for my truck and it looked like hurricane preparation at the gas pumps with 5-8 cars deep at each pump so I moved on. In the store every single isle was almost 100% empty. All meat of any kind, frozen vegetables, eggs, milk, cleaning products of any kind, etc were all gone. I saw a guy with his cart loaded with every bag of charcoal he could fit.....is that the only way he thinks he can cook? I saw another lady with 15 packages of 1 dozens eggs....WTF? People are stupid.

I can assure you the story is true. I saw the numerous email and text exchanges. Due to what my wife does and this friend does it created quite the corporate shit storm with headquarters calls and calls to numerous county health departments. There was a lot more to the story that I left out of a public forum for reasons...

Also got 3 month supply of medications and good first aid kits along with basic OTC medicine for headaches and colds. Feels nice to have all bases covered.

Honestly I should have had all that stuff in my basement years ago. This has been good motivation to be prepared.
What about toilet paper? Big Grin
