If it's a joke then they definitely got me, but I'm not sure it is :) I just went on their site and got all the way to cc info on an order.

Lol, I glance at headlines today and just assume they're all fake without clicking.

Fair enough :)

You posted some pretty good jokes today too. Alcohol wipes, paper towels, flushable wipes, tissues and toilet paper all in stock at Amazon...

I didn't bother opening them. I assumed they were all fake.... :) :)

I'm sure China is playing with the numbers, but if hundreds of thousands were dying in Beijing, I'm assuming one way or the other it would leak.
Therefore, I'm inclined to think that is not the case in Beijing.

But how is it possible?? This thing is so so contagious

Its a pretty safe bet that China doesn't report accurate numbers. But while they can lie about the scale and report 3,000 deaths instead of 10,000 - its not possible for them to lie about the end of the crisis. If people were still actually contjnuing to get sick in China now there is no way that they could be reporting the new case count at nearly 0 as they are now doing.

So even though we don't have a good sense of how many people were infected/died, we do have a very clear and reliable timeline for start to spread to end.

Not sure why you find it hard to believe that they are not sharing their data with the world. Very interesting how contained the virus so well and have way more congested cities. Yet still limited it to mainly wuhan

Yes it shows how little we understand about the virus. It seems to hit an epicenter hard and much less everywhere else. Italy is also experiencing that, more than half of the deaths are clustered (Lombardy) and the US is also emerging that way (New York tristate).

I dont find it hard to believe that China isn't sharing its data with us, but to reiterate- they can't succeed in pretending that cases have stopped if its actually still ongoing. So we know timelines and geocentricity even if nothing else.

Maybe the answer. Ventilators running off an App.

I've heard doctors saying that for some cars even a cpap could be helpful and that they used them for some more mild cases to pen up ventilators

What’s IVIG?  And what does “it wont be quick” mean?

If people who had mild/asymptotic infections have the same antibodies, we need to be testing such people as well?
https://www.statnews.com/2020/03/05/how-blood-plasma-from-recovered-patients-could-help-treat-coronavirus/

IVIG is the combined plasma treatment. In general it takes about 7 months to make in a regular situation although supposedly there are ways to speed it up. And it is def better to use IVIG that would come from recovered patients if they could figure out exactly how to target it vs standard IVIG but that will take even longer.

not a DR or Scientist just an investor in a different company in this space from before COVID even showed up so my understanding/explanation may not be perfect.

Adding in that there is another type of plasma usage called convalescent plasma where its pooled but not processed the same way as ivig. Much faster but generally less effective is my understanding. However it might be a good option here

just got this from an extremely qualified doctor:

"A recent study just published showed viral shedding can occur from mild patients as long as 10 days after symptoms resolve."

Mask have greatly improved the last few years. Had to go shopping this morning and wore a N95 3M mask. Very little restriction to breathing and perfect fit. The only issue since there is no exhale valve is they do get warm. Moisture will be apparent if you wear it for any extended period of time.
