So that individual quarantined at Pt Mugu: the base PIO told reporters he was residing IN THE BARRACKS. He has a private bed/bathroom so he's either in the BE/OQ. No bar attached to those buildings, no chance he will interact with Navy there

And WTF. He was brought from LAX because he came from Wuhan??? I thought we had stopped all travelers from there entering the USA

I keep wondering what this map would look like if red dots represented people that tested positive for the flu. I imagine the entire map would be red. Yet I haven't had the flu in years.

Then I wonder what the real transmission rate is for COVID-19. The NY Times says..."each person with the new coronavirus could infect somewhere between 1.5 and 3.5 people without effective containment measures."

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/...s-contain.html

And I wonder how much of the population is naturally immune.

Sorry, I didn't realize righ-clicking made the map useless, so I screen-capped it.

Stopping the spread of this thing is pretty hopeless. I think efforts should be focused more on a vaccine at this point.

But thanks for not answering my question.
Look at that - we each helped the other become just a little better. A truly wonderful board isn't it?

Though I'm not sure I see a question there - often times one uses a "?" at the end of question, in addition to using wording that suggests you are asking a question. All I see above are assumptions, suggestions, and facts. But not a question.

I had not seen this before and I truly enjoyed it. But sadly no, I'm not going away anytime soon. I tend to leave the little stuff, but when people have difficulty spelling basic words and make a ton of errors in a single post, I'm probably not going to leave it. Up to them if they wish to change, but I have no particular desire to overlook their mistakes. I really don't care if they like it very much or not.

You made more errors than I can recount. Carry on with your bs as you have no substance to put out.

I'm done with you.

You are now on my ignore list.

The absissa has the average number of people that have been infected by each person who has presented with symptoms of the virus. The farther to the right, the greater the number of persons each of the infected may further, infect.

The ordinate has the fatality rate on a logarithmic scale. The higher the disease is placed on the ordinate, the greater the fatality rate.

The Corona Virus has a window in this because it is still largely unknown. The window will become smaller as more data is added and a greater level of understanding is achieved.

Stay Thirsty, My Friend.

Yeah, I didn't notice until later that it was from early this month.

Absolutely correct. If/when it hits the US, the Southern border may be the main culprit. It does not necessarily need to come from illegal immigration, either. Here is a live cam of the Tijuana crossing right now, I bet there are cars lined up by the thousands coming through. How do you screen all of those people? It is impossible unless you close the border 100%. I don't advocate for that, but we certainly can't ignore the possibility that it come from some of the thousands of people that travel in by car every DAY without anything more than possibly a sniff by a dog to the car and a wave on through. Like you said, self quarantine... I don't think so.

Trump and the boys are really, really sticking their necks out on this one. All the containment talk and the economy won’t be impacted bullshit is going to take its place right next to Dubya and his Mission Accomplished fiasco.
