    ^ This is what MS should be doing. I had to go to the pharmacy for an essential medication and it is astounding the people going about their business like nothing is going on. Walmart, Lowe?s, pawn shops, barber shops, convenience stores, liquor stores and traffic everywhere. At this rate going up ~20% everyday; in 14 days Mississippi will be at ~7500 cases. And based on current death/confirmed cases percentage increases. In 14 days we could see 300+ deaths. Tired of people comparing this to the flu. Flu related hospitalizations are under 5%. COVID-19 is around 30+ % and it?s 4-5 times more contagious.

    Just wait... that will change. With our diabetic and hypertensive population and the COPD patients. It?s about to get a lot worse.

    I think there are a lot of people waking around here spreading it. I've heard from some people that work in ERs here and in New Orleans that people are coming in with symptoms and are being sent home without testing if they are not in distress. They are being told to quarantine, but how do you know they are doing it?

    That is what is scary. Many people have no symptoms at all or mild symptom at best. And some are contagious for up to 14 days before having any symptoms. I may go broke over this but we all need to freaking stay home unless absolute necessary. It ain?t that complicated folks.

    Thanks for the info! Good article, but at the same time many contagious folks are out shopping like it?s nothing and have no clue they are contagious. I?ll bet my stimulus check that I won?t be getting that the fatalities will far exceed any flu season since the flu-shot. We have no immunities to this virus and it?s more contagious. Not disagreeing with Fauci or you. He is an expert in his field and I am in mine. Just concerned. But again thanks for sharing! I need some good news in my life.

    Thanks for the link. I just want everyone to put politics aside and come together so we can get through this. We can get back to the bickering when this is over.

    You're welcome and I agree wholeheartedly. I'm seeing more and more people pitching in and doing whatever they can to help. We have thousands of seniors on our medical alert service and I've talked to many this week and they're an inspiration. Let's all keep fighting the good fight and help each other get through this. It's gonna take a village on this one!

    I don't know that Walmart, Lowe's, pawn shops, convenience stores, or liquor stores are being closed by the Alabama mandate just based on the quoted tweet above.

    Personally, I would argue that keeping Lowe's open is a necessary sacrifice for keeping people sane at home and not roaming to even more locations. (half-serious)

    Seems like stats on how this is affecting the various age groups in US are non-existent for some reason. At least I can't seem to find any.

    You can thank the two large groups from DeSoto County that went on a "mission trip" to the Dominican Republic for Spring Break for that. I wish people would have been paying attention to the warnings that were being put out about Spring Break travel. There is no unringing that bell.

    But it appears it was indeed a fact. The only thing possibly wrong is that it was too conservative of an estimate.

    Sadly, I think we are going to hit 1000 deaths per day in about a week
