I'm a bloke,but no worries


I can't afford masks,so.im thinking of taking a risk and not paying rent this week to buy a heap of them,and a heap of food,canned and dried. We live 2km from the Tasman sea,so I can suppliment stocks with fish and shellfish,lots of live stock around if it gets really bad and I need to barter. I'm also thinking of keeping my kids out of school until I see how our govt handles this situation.


Sorry bout that, there ya go!

As far as the masks, i dunno , they say those damn things are basically worthless for something like this, however I would spend some coin on some hand sanitizer and wipes etc

Trending perspective. At this rate will be over 3500 by tomorrow.

@globaltimesnews

WuhanCoronavirus in numbers: follow the alarming trend as number of confirmed cases of Wuhan coronavirus in China rises from 291 to 1,975 in just 6 days. Some believe that the availability of more testing kits has led to confirmation of more cases.

Thanks.



I think of the peds side we have at most 10 beds that can be used for this. Assuming and thats a big assumption that there are 20 per hospital we are looking at 180 in in the Bay Area if none are being used.


Damn PALS Cert...

Glad I'm retired. Thanks for continuing

Another key thing to think about.

They are building in a frenzy multiple thousand bed medical units, and quarantied 65 million people over 26 deaths?



Sorry Sailor I thought I replied to this but it appears to me missing.

No its not odd to be honest. Part of our disaster / Pandemic/ NBC training involves literally setting up something similar outside of the hospital.

The idea and goal is to

Triage patients outside before they get inside so that you can put masks on them etc.
Triage patients who show up at these events with every fake symptom they can manage
Set up care areas as most hospitals lack surge capacity to deal with large numbers in a mass causality event

For Example: In Northern California there is at most 200 pediatric Intensive care unit beds available. The use rate hovers between 80-85 percent (that just with routine stuff that kids get sick, injured etc) that means at any given time there is at most 40 bed available. That is beds not staff who may or may not elect to come in to help. Assume we have the staff, a pandemic etc would easily overwhelm the number of free beds. Nor is there an ability short of using a C-17 to move patients to other unaffected areas assuming those states even allow it.

The hospital may not have enough isolation rooms to deal with the influx

Lastly in this type of incident, the triage officer (I'm trained to do it if needed) makes life and death decisions on who gets care and who does not. At this stage its trying to save the greatest number of people not all of the people.

Yes it may be precipitous and they are 100% lying about the numbers, but building the tent city is a prudent move in this situation. You do it early while you have the manpower

Twitter is terrifying...

twitter.com...

I'm starting to understand why people might be freaking out even if the cases are limited. Warning that link is awful.

For less brave, it is a video of patient convulsing on a gurney.

So from various unconfirmed sources ive started noticing a few things being repeated..

Ro = 3.8 (so every 1 person infects 3.x people)
You can possibly be infected via the eyes and certainly through the mouth and nose.
You can possibly be infected by touching surfaces infected people have touched (did that get confirmed?)
It has around a 2 week incubation period (although reported cases at 23-24 days)
It is human to human transferable
Typical symptoms of the flu, however fever was not present for all victims

I'm going for a bike ride, im going to go see how supplies of facemasks are at chemists and so forth.. see what the publics feeling


Excellent summary.
This really needs to be confirmed:



You can possibly be infected via the eyes and certainly through the mouth and nose.

Bad news. Beijing is like 500-600 miles from Wuhan. Too little too late. Containment impossible.

Significant development. Watching this on agenda free T.V. right now. 600 miles from Wuhan. It really makes you ponder how or why this hasn't been happening all over. Or we're being lied to..

Or omitted to... Same thing. :/

The incubation rate is a big problem when scanning people landing from flights. This thing is already world wide I think. I guarantee in the next few days NZ will have cases,we have a large Chinese population.

Those are fine providing you are keeping those who are not infected from getting it from you. Level 4 bio suits would be ok as long as you have a decontamination area before removal and training as to how to not to actually give it to yourself when removing.
