Damned, sneaky Epidemiologists trying to take over the world, I knew something was off with Amy Acton and her fellows.

Did have a guy worried about port-a-johns and catching the corona, told him that as long as only one person used it a time they should be fine.

Spring football practices(Call it what you want- it's the BB open gym game all over again)would be a real problem for the multi-sport athlete and the smaller schools. The football coach and baseball/track coaches fighting over students time, making them chose between the sports. It's bad enough the way it is today on their time, often forcing students to work out and practice other sports while in season.

Yeah, I switch channels because that movement catches my eyes and bothers me too.

Comment 02 Apr 2020

While the Governors/POTUS press briefings are meant to help ease the fear and anxiety as much as to provide information, I think we could all do with a weekend free of the doom and gloom, how many are now dead, pressers. It is our decision to watch them of course but at some point it becomes counterproductive to keep beating us on the head with the same message.

Push the "We will not become a third world country, the light is at the end of the tunnel message", "We've done all we can, good job and keep it up" and give us a 48 hour break this weekend.

The bad news just wears on us to the point that we will become numb to the suffering, perhaps that's good, don't know.

Comment 02 Apr 2020

Yeah, it's really not possible to keep that kind of information secret in todays world, the virus spread has shown how connected we are as a world.

Comment 02 Apr 2020

Dewine will later have the chance to lead us out of the restrictions, I hope he has as much courage to make those calls as well.

Comment 02 Apr 2020

I fear that as a country we will extend our restrictions well past the point that makes economic and epi sense and that it continues into next year. NFL with no fans to capture TV revenue, not sure if it's feasible with college ball, probably not.

I'll take door number two please.

Interesting read though it focuses purely on the disease and the potential direction it takes, restrictions and the like with zero economic considerations. Once we reach a point where the expected level of disease won't completely overrun the medical system, vents are produced, PPE is in supply, medical professionals are back on their feet, the population will simply take whatever risks they deem appropriate as we reach herd immunity.

Kind of hard to stop traffic coming into the state and then not take any steps internally. As mentioned further down the thread, his decision will be helpful in terms of studying the timing of restrictions and perhaps lifting them as well.

When someone is grasping for straws it's not nice to kick them in the nuts. It's like the weather, if NOAA gives a more favorable forecast I go with them. I was hoping that I might get a chance to give up my left nut in the earlier bet but our total deaths will probably exceed 100K. 

Comment 31 Mar 2020

Lancet study "finds" that the death rate for SARS-Covid-2 is .66% , only six times the actually rate for the average seasonal flu. Younger than nine .00161%, or 80+ looking at 7.8% though neither number addresses co-morbid causes. This of course uses an estimate of true cases and not just confirmed tests as even 90% of those with symptoms that are tested come back negative.(They have "regular" viruses)

Death occurs about 18 days after first symptoms which represents the lag we see from cases confirmed to deaths and on average it takes about two weeks for recovery by those that show moderate symptoms.

Data certainly shows some rays of sunshine

While strongly discouraging services or mass, Ohio cannot prevent them because of the constitution though the state government clearly indicated they would have if it was legal. Funeral and Weddings are exempt though most halls have been smart and refuse to host weddings. A wedding and funeral are disasters waiting to happen, services too.

Comment 30 Mar 2020

Talks about 35-45 million unemployed with 30%+ unemployment rate is terrifying, a great depression level problem. Other "experts" claim that if we can remove the restrictions after the May peak, start the process of natural herd immunity with voluntary isolation of elderly ill we can stop this at just a significant but short term recession. 

After four months of endless media coverage I'm amazed at how ignorant so many of my fellow Americans are at this point. Local worker called, complaining that her company was making her work overtime because they told her that over the next six months "Lot's of employees will get the corona" and they were trying to warehouse product. No crap lady, it's GOING TO HAPPEN, she was clueless AND it good business sense.

Comment 30 Mar 2020

Yes, sorry my Administrative Assistant was listening while I was in another meeting and she confused the Governors order with the Directors order. I also expect the Directors order to be extended, hopefully no more than two weeks, not sure we can take much more than that.

Schools are not going back until fall unless it's just for a one day meet and greet in late May or June. 

Comment 30 Mar 2020

I don't know if I reported it or not but Ohio opened up the golf courses for play with social distancing requirements, no club house except to pay. Ohio extended stay at home order to first of May to match POTUS suggestions.

Comment 30 Mar 2020

We want people to get outdoors, there's absolutely no risk of walking outside, even passing someone on the sidewalk as the social distancing distance requirement shrinks to 2 feet in an outdoor environment. Now if someone coughs right in your face, that's another matter. Ohio has reversed course and now will allow golf courses to open so long as the clubhouse is closed, except for the financial transaction.

The social distancing experiment is to stop the 10 to the 4th power exposure risk, not the 10 to the first power. So if you are exposed at work and bring it home it stays at home and is not spread to fifty homes and fifty homes becomes 2500 homes.........

After this is over we will have tons of data to sift through and decide what worked best at what point and it will guide us into the future.
