Meanwhile it seems that this report, which was reported by Reuters, NYTimes, and more, was a hoax.

What does this say about Reutersí credibility?

Thatís nuts. And a sobering reminder of the credibility of certain MSM reporting.

Dearest family and most wonderful community,
Our hearts are overwhelmed with gratitude and we are BEGGING Hashem that every single person who has hospitalized family members should get the  miraculous phone call that we just got.

Boruch Hashem, Rabbi Schwei is off the respirator and breathing!!!
With the support of lots oxygen... and with a long road still ahead, but this a  huge, positive development.
The doctors are calling this a miracle.
Thank you for your wholehearted and constant tefillos that have surely aroused Hashem's incredible rachamim.
We trust that Hashem who brought Rabbi Schwei this far, will grant him complete health, along with every person who needs the same miracle!!
And may we celebrate this Pesach LONG AFTER  the hisgalus of Moshiach Tzidkeinu, with everyone in Klal Yisroel healthy, with no more tears of sorrow, ever, with every broken heart healed, and with all of us dancing with joy!!!

Credibility? What Credibility?
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

Whatís it like? What does she have to do? How frequently?

Bottom line, is this more of a proof-of-concept on a small scale, or does this potentially scale up?

After the initial blood test to determine eligibility, itís a 90 minutes process where they hook you up to a machine that draws your blood, separates the platelets (antibodies) and reinserts the blood to donor.

Some slightly good news- Italy now officially appears to be on the downswing in terms of new cases and continues to look like it will follow the mathematical progression seen in China's numbers, which would mean that within a couple of weeks or less the number of new cases will shrink to almost none. By end of day today Spain will take Italy's spot as #2 in the world. The USA is only approximately 11 days behind Italy.

Of course, the US is a big place so that just applies to the NY epicenter. Other regions might be spared altogether or might just break out later.
