Not sure there is a panic.

There are 62 patients in the US, though almost all have their infection traced back to source.

However there is a case in California where the point of infection hasn't been able to be identified. It suggests certainly more people with the virus walking around California at least.

Here is a concise article which I find helpful for prevention:

https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsod...ing-coronavirus

Contained within the article is a link to a discussion of the efficacy and utility o face masks in different situations. Basically, wash your hands and be careful.

One person, who didn't go to China nor had contact with a person who went to China, gets sick and this is how the nation responds:

This would be funny if it weren't for the ripple effect.

Got our first official cases in Nebraska- Lady traveled from UK 10 days ago.

She of COURSE was at a Special Olympics event with hundred of people, sigh. She is at Hospital.


Fremont School District Shut down for the week.

Other districts still open. Most districts around here have spring break next week.

Our church sent a notice of no shaking hands during Mass.

No panic here yet. Traffic was light going to work, but we appear to have a full staff.

Last time I looked WA state had 103 cases and 16 deaths.

Probably because they aren't testing much, but the death rate would be about 15% if those stats stand.

Oops, new data
162 cases 22 deaths.
down to 13.5% death rate,

WA state is off the curve, but the US is trending about same as other countries at this time- 761 known cases, 27 deaths- 3.5%.

World as a whole 116,164 cases, 4088 deaths 3.5%

Risk groups staying consistent, older, and other health impaired.

Time to make sure anyone who works in nursing homes gets paid sick time....Don't want them coming in to work sick right now.....
