That's a great idea! Be nice to start that here. I'd include grocery store staff as second tier - those folks are exposing themselves but working hard as always.

{{ Was same here, everyone hanging out windows clapping and cheering. Personally, as well as NHS staff I had all my care worker mates and in mind too who are still there going to work everyday protecting the most vulnerable in our society.
I take my hat off to everyone in our health system right now, and all the little shops staying open despite the risk of customers coming in and out, the transport drivers still taking folk to hospitals and doctors appointments- and all the kitchen staff, cleaners and porters who keep the whole thing moving behind the scenes and never get any credit.
You make your nation proud! Nod }}.

{{ Well Trump's interview with Hannity was terrifying.


"I have a feeling that a lot of the numbers that are being said in some areas are just bigger than they're going to be. I don't believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators," Trump told host Sean Hannity, an apparent reference to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's recent claim that the state needed 30,000 ventilators. "You know, you go into major hospitals sometimes and they'll have two ventilators and now all of a sudden they're saying, 'Can we order 30,000 ventilators?'"- Fox

-Does Trump even know this virus causes respiratory damage up to and including death? Ventillators are kind of necessary to save lives, and we know the sort of numbers you need to have per population for this virus because we can see how its played out in other parts of the world where the virus is ahead of its current stage in the US -

"The Associated Press reported Thursday that Inslee implored Trump on a private conference call with governors from both parties to use executive authority to ramp up production of necessary medical equipment. But Trump said the federal government is merely the “backup.”
“I don’t want you to be the backup quarterback, we need you to be Tom Brady here,” Inslee reportedly replied, invoking the football star and Trump friend.

-so Trump doesnt see it as the Federal governments role to provide the strategy and leadership for dealing with the virus, just to 'back up' the states? -

Trump also criticized Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, telling host Sean Hannity "she's not stepping up."
"I don't know if she knows what's going on but all she does is sit there and blame the federal government," Trump said. "She doesn't get it done and we send her a lot. Now she wants a declaration of emergency and we have to make a decision on that. But Michigan is a very important state."

Earlier this week, Whitmer demanded "clear directives and guidance from the federal government."

He also discussed his hope that parts of the U.S. economy would begin returning to normal by Easter Sunday.
"The end result is, we've got to get back to work," Trump went on. "And I think we can start by opening up certain parts of the country ... certain parts of the Midwest, other places" where the outbreak has been less acute.'

Meanwhile, in the real world-

'the U.S. surged up to 82,404 confirmed COVID-19 cases Thursday, it took the number-one spot from China, which has 81,782 cases, followed by Italy with 80,589 cases. The U.S. now has accounted for about 14.9 percent of cases worldwide.'

Mad Ok its been an interesting experiment to see what would happen if you actually made a Fool King for a day, but I think now the shit is hitting the fan and actual lives are at stake its time to stop the game! }}

Surely, after this, the American public will see him in a different light & use their votes in a better way. It seems that Boris Johnson has the virus, all but mildly ?

The won't Az. I have been keeping an eye on social media channels and it seems the hard-core are just doubling down on this to try and make sure those commie bastards don't take this opportunity to do something like spend money to save some lives.

It seems they are happy when their tax dollars are spent on blowing ship up and taking lives but it suddenly becomes a socialist and therefore communist problem when it is spent on anything else.

Yes, USA is #1!!   USA

Trump's comments about ventilators is the most shocking thing he's said in a career of shocking things.  And thinking you can open up for business in the midwest because the virus isn't serious there yet will certainly help things along.  Though I do agree with the idea of going on like normal for as long as possible if a complete shutdown for a few weeks can blunt the final blow.  I'm not sure that's the way he's thinking, he's probably naive enough to think that if it's not bad now it will stay that way.

{{ Looking at the time from when China shut down Wuhan to the restrictions being relaxed (and assuming there is no second wave infection there) then we are looking at a minimum of 3-4 months of lockdown to get a grip on it if its similar here.
Thats a long time! This is where Im glad I ate porridge and pasta and beans for a year to get the VR headset- was worth the sacrifice as at least I can sort of get out when I cant get out! }}

Here's some modelling, which matches mine pretty danged well.  They are modelling hospital beds etc but the shapes and timing line up with what I calculated for infections.

https://covid19.healthdata.org/projections

It will be over by early summer, at least in the US.  We'll get re-infection from outside but there will be some herd immunity by then.

So I'm curious Halfy, what are the assumptions on which the decline following April 15 are based?
It would seem to me there are so many unknowns at this point, and so many variables that we're right now in the process of tweaking, that it would be hard to make a meaningful prediction at this point.
So I'm assuming some fairly broad assumptions. No? Shrugging
