Tyrol news says France now has 2314 dead (death?) count.

The count of the infected rose to over 38000.

 

A German newspaper has this article:

The mother of the 16y girl that died in Paris (France) says the daughter only early on symptom was a cough, for a week she got treated with a coughing medicine and inhalation.

Only then the symptoms increased at Saturday to breathing difficulties, at first the test was negative (not sure when that one was done). Doctor called for the ambulance, fire fighters in full protective gear arrived instead, she was in the ICU in a very renowned hospital, Wednesday she died (positively tested).

 

edit: yikes, I just read those numbers are still without the death counts of elderly and similar care homes, only starting Monday they will add those too

US death toll 2,008, daily up to 312 so far.

 

Not a huge jump in the daily figure today, but is that down to a bottleneck in testing?

It appears the prognosis for patients put on ventilators is that 50% of them will die.

That is what I meant with my post as you asked about how much it might help. I understood the articles I‘ve read as such, they‘ll die of asphyxiation till they get a chance to make it, with it it increases the time to fight. But the hospital I gave the link to added oxygen via blood something too, if I understood that part right (medical English I am not used to)

Quite possible I think, plus it can take time between the infection, the first symptoms and the full brunt of worse cases.

 

Does anyone have. umbers per city / region of the max possible testing counts per day? In Berlin its e.g. only 2000/day, some are negative, the not known count is at such way higher.

Tyrol (pop 750k) is testing 800/day atm and will expand to 1.800/day "demnächst" (whatever that means, the bottleneck being obvioiusly the testing kits as the lab capacity would already allow for more)

I‘ve read they found out there is a similar in testing method, security measures, and chemicals test for a non-related pet illness, they think they can add veterinary test labors to the mix.

And some new procedures, some new supporting equipment,.... here they say they will increase what is already increased possible per week count amount to a daily count, for the whole country up to 6-digits!? Not sure anymore, so many changes, announcements, new developments....

 

Lab capacity is not everywhere allowing for more, in a region here last week was a big ‚Panne‘ (break down of...), as an important testing chemical was out and they lost 2000 active tests of ill people, the test/probes already being in the lab.

 

Hence why I asked, there seem big differences from city to city, state to state even within a country, how much more it must be from country to country and so on.

IMO, the current UK lockdown arrangement is just buying time so they can get the software running to implement a full lockdown which I am expecting them to announce next week, possibly Monday.

Red States are trying to close borders to people from Blue States.

Civil War 2, here we come.

Meanwhile in Mississippi, where so far their death toll has increased from 8 to 13 today, they still refuse to do anything.

The whole state of Florida got buzzed a couple hours ago by the Florida Surgeon General. Every phone went into emergency alert mode. Message to for anyone 65+ and with health conditions to stay home, and for everyone to practice social distancing.

 

Very telling that it's addressed by the state Surgeon General. Governor DeSantis is clearly dropping the ball.

We don't need this kind of speculations and inflammatory rhetoric. New York has 53k cases, almost half of the 123k US cases. It's the same as when China quarantined the Hubei province from the rest of China, or when Italy quarantined Lombardy province from the rest of the country.

It is too late to quarantine New York now especially when you want to re-open US economy in two weeks.

You need to start paying attention to the increases in every other state.

Up to 500 deaths in the US today. 277 just in new york

Horrific, NY alone is already between France and the UK in 'New Deaths' today.

 

In a just world, Trump and quite a few other world leaders would go to jail. Compared to what could have been done, this level of negligence is a crime against humanity.
