5% of people who are diagnosed with Covid require artificial respiration. Another 15% need to breathe in highly concentrated oxygen - and not just for a few days. The duration from the beginning of the disease until recovery is 3 to 6 weeks on average for these severe and critical patients
Healthcare system: 20% of infected people in China needed hospital treatment for weeks. China has hospital beds to treat 0.4% of the population at the same time - other developed countries have between 0.1% and 1.3% and most of these beds are already occupied with people who have other diseases.
Pre-existing conditions: The fatality rate for those infected with pre-existing cardiovascular disease in China was 13.2%. It was 9.2% for those infected with high blood sugar levels (uncontrolled diabetes), 8.4% for high blood pressure, 8% for chronic respiratory diseases and 7.6% for cancer.

I think were within this week and into the next watching this thing explode on the west and east coast........
From what were seeing, its within the period that people actually are bad enough to go to the hospital, which means they have been spreading it for at least a week.......
IF you retro that.........were looking at thousands ..........
I know 8k are under observations in california alone , from what the documentaiton says........and the CDC
But my hunch is this has been in the US at least a month........

What are the odds, I have not been sick in over a year and starting yesterday I have this lame cold......my nose has been running uncontrollably....
Honestly, Im pretty positive It's just a boring old regular cold, but it's fun to think I might be dying....
I'll let you guys know if I do......
Don't come to Sitka if you don't wanna catch it...
