As if you can rely on people going to the doctor when they are sick. But. Moot point.

How is it that American doctors, not having the ability to test people for the virus, a moot point?

Quote where I said such a thing.

The context of the argument is:

How long has Coronvirus 19 been known to exist? So I imagine the supply of test kits is limited.

Is Coronvirus 19 spread any differently than the flu that as already killed 14,000 in the USA this flu season.

Does testing positive for Coronavirus 19 change the actual treatment of patients requiring hospitalization from the “regular” flu viruses?

I imagined what happen in California is the Coronavirus patient thought they had a cold. Got sick enough to get hospitalized. Then they tested for Coronvirus. With no change in what drugs are applied vs any other severe flu case.

South Korea has tested no less than 100,000 people for the virus. China has reported 14,800 new cases! How many people have they tested to reach that number. The USA has tested no more than 400 people. With those numbers, it's impossible to understand and track the virus, here in the USA, let alone prepare communities.

About .02% of people who contract the flu die. As far the number we've got from other countries, about 2% of those exposed to CORVID 19 die. That's a big difference. So obviously, the same treatments don't work.

We have "flu shots" to give to people to avoid contracting the flu, and many people have natural immunity to the flu too. CORVID 19 is a new version of the corona virus, which people don't have immunity to the virus, so more people are at risk to contract it than the flu.

So. How is having the test kits going to change the mortality rate. Or change the protocol of treating a person admitted to a hospital with sever flu systems.

As far as test kits available. There are no Coronvirus hotspots in the USA. Say 200 kits were sent to 1000 hospitals and clinics through the USA. That’s 200,000 kits available nation wide.

Are you saying the test kit situation is static, and no more kits are being produced?

It is at the moment. Let's hope that Congress and the White House reach an emergency funding agreement real soon!


THE BIG CATCH in containing the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic has been, of course, detecting it. Testing needed to be developed, and then those tests need to get all over the world. The problem, currently: In America, the rush to get testing kits out in America hasn’t gone well, with faulty kits being shipped around the country. And in China, there simply aren’t enough kits to go around.

On a Wednesday afternoon press call, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) gave journalists the lowdown: Some of the kits ended up being shipped with faults and issues that deliver inconclusive results. That doesn’t mean they were producing false positives or false negatives, but that they just weren’t producing the results the CDC needed them to produce — a non-result.

futurism.com...


Currently, only 12 labs outside of the CDC—located in California, Illinois, Nebraska, Nevada, and Tennessee—have the capability to test for the virus. Peter Kyriacopoulos, the chief policy officer for APHL, told CIDRAP News the testing process could be dramatically shortened and expanded if 100 Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL)-member labs receive authorization to do their own tests.

My prediction

By the middle of March California cases will be about 100

By the end of March, California cases will be around 1000

There will be an issue with available health care for those that need to be hospitalized

BTW, I live a few miles from the Solano county border

In California here, UC Davis has three roommates in medical isolation:

California is watching over 8400 people:

The virus is here. I am not surprised. The reaction was far, far too delayed when it broke out in Wuhan. Bringing Americans back against the advice of the CDC was a really, really bad idea.

In addition, even if that could have gone off well, it was ill planned and the feds helping were not all in protective clothing:

The pandemic has started. Hold on tight.

What's really going to suck for California is when the virus gets into the LA and San Francisco tent cities.

Two or three months from now men in space suits are going to have to go through them to remove the sick and the dead and then use end loaders and dump trucks to clean up the mess left behind.


I don't think the CA liberals thought that through.

Oh, you mean the way we do now, when the flu season hits Every Year?!

Wait, that doesn’t happen.

Back into the basement you go.

Actually, no. When you're caught up in a pandemic, healthy or not, you're stuck and you have to shelter in place.

I have no issue with the gov providing for those in the quarantine zone, assuming the chinese would let them, but by bringing home the Americans from Wuhan, the gov has GREATLY increased the probability we'll have the pandemic.

Traveling abroad means you are the mercy of whatever and wherever you are (re: US Marine in Russian custody as an example).

Rescue beacons in the desert for border crossers have instructions written in English, Spanish and Chinese. Have been that way for 15-20 years now.

Wonder how much of US food comes from CA??

Might it be infectious, eventually??



Practically quarantining tens of thousands with hours of the first case!

Earlier this week the US court system ruled that the Trump Administration could punish Sanctuary States.

Paranoid Democrats think President Trump is sending the coronavirus to California as punishment.

Let's find out by quarantining California from the rest of the United States. They've been trying to leave the country for the last 10 years. Now would be a good time to make that happen.

Just saying those tent cities are piles of hay soaked in gasoline waiting for a match.
