Probably wouldn't be a bad idea to at least edit the title of the thread at this point.
This 1000%. Also, there are people spouting incorrect conclusions based on data they fully don't understand in this thread. It's irresponsible.
Good to know. FWIW, I completely understand wanting to mess with things right now. I'm home for the next month and hoping to get some free time to play around with guitar gear in there. Unfortunately, so far I'm working so many hours managing things remotely that I've only played once this last week. Still, I get it. We're all at home and there's no good reason to now want to do something with that time besides just sit there. In fact, the mental toll of just being stuck at home is going to be a real issue for a lot people and it's worth giving some consideration to.
Yeah, I'd prefer to keep this discussion over in the pub and just discuss guitar issues here. I don't think it served any good purposes to get it going here.
Having said that, this is worse than anything we've experienced since the 1918 Influenza pandemic. We completely failed at managing it by trying to pretend it wasn't so bad. Hopefully, we do this well enough that it retroactively looks "not so bad", but I fear that mismanagement to-date is going to lead to 1000's of needless deaths. We're going to lose tens-of-thousands as is doing everything we can at this point. Let us hope it stays in the 5-figure range and doesn't move beyond that, but I fear it will.
Wow! What a ridiculous statement!!!.....on so many levels!!!!
That isn't true at all.
The refrigeration truck part certainly is.
Per the CDC N1H1 killed over 12k in the USA alone.
The US Government declared N1H1 a national emergency allowing hospitals to implement emergency operation plans..after 1000 people had already died:
Per the CDC, regular seasonal flu killed 34k in the USA alone in the 2018-2019 season, 61k the year before that, 38k the year before that. Just in the USA.
The last pandemic (2009 N1H1) killed 12,000 Americans. I don't remember stay at home orders, quarantines, or any of these drastic measures. I certainly don't see it year after year with seasonal flu that kills tens of thousands of Americans.
What isn’t true?
Refrigeration truck source (you can find more on this through a simple search):
Regarding a source for ventilator allocation protocol, that's not something you will likely find published, as it will differ from hospital to hospital and is internal, as opposed to being government directed. But I have a friend who works for a hospital in MA and went home in tears after being handed their allocation protol.
Considering the well documented shortage, I'd be curious to know what you think is happening out there and how these decisions are being made. They're sharing ventilators, modifying other equipment to function as a ventilator, and the federal government has issued an executive order to companies like GM to get more units made. There just simply aren't enough.
Unfortunately, give it a couple of weeks. This is quoted now so we can keep it in place and review.
Here's another data point for review. The numbers for regular flu during the same time frame. Something to compare Covid19 with....
I detect a lot of vanity in your posts.
The CDC numbers are estimates, the laboratory confirmed numbers by WHO was lower, but it doesn't really matter. I'm afraid the 12k deaths in the USA from N1H1 will be beaten in just a few days. The Covid-19 numbers appears to be doubling by every 2-3 days (per CDC), so in 10 days we'll now.
Yeah, as of today we're already at over 2000 deaths, and they're now talking about the possibility of up to 100,000 to 200,000 deaths.
Not sure how a thread about an amp builder spun into a COVID argument but this thread seems to have run its course.
