People who need daily chemo or dialysis
Keep in mind that these are from the people at the highest risk.

Agreed as to chemo (people on dialysis are not necessarily immunosupressed) - but if they dont go out for treatment they will die of something else besides Covid-19.

I read that kidneys are one of the risk points.

That depends how needed those two weeks are and if it needs to be consecutive. It is a risk reward question.

Uh, no.  This guy predicts millions will die.  No one thinks the world is coming to an end.

He does add....but things can be done to change that (although most people are not doing those things).

Anyone here watch “Outbreak”?

Netflix put it in their featured movies. It’s going to freak people out.

I am at A NYC hospital with an elderly family member who has fever and bad cough but they are saying they would not do a corona test unless he was actually with someone who has a confirmed case because they do not have enough test.

It’s crazy, I would think they should test as many people as they can to rule it out. Hospitals seem very ill prepare do prevent an outbreak

Let me guess, the medical staff were not wearing any PPE.

Read the thread. Scary math.

Hotels can be converted into temporary covid19 hospitals...

They are fully geared up, found a stash of masks and gloves. Going to grab a bunch and sell on amazon for $100/per mask 😷😀
