    The Covid-19 Info thread (keep politics out please)

    First case of the COVID-19 in MS

    JACKSON, Miss. ? Tonight the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) reports its first presumptive positive case of coronavirus or COVID-19. Final verification will come from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    The individual is a Forrest county adult male who recently traveled to Florida. After confirmation by the Mississippi State Department of Health's Public Health Laboratory, the patient voluntarily isolated himself at home to prevent further transmission to others. The patient was not hospitalized.

    The Mississippi State Department of Health is conducting further investigation to limit spread of the virus from this case.

    Governor Tate Reeves is fully aware of the situation and remains in close contact with the State Health Officer for all elements of COVID-19 response.

    State Health Officer Dr. Thomas Dobbs will release additional information and guidelines to Mississippians at an 11:00 press conference tomorrow morning.

    What’s really scary for those of us with compromised immune systems is that many virologists are saying that eventually everyone will be exposed to it. If not this spring, then next winter.

    Most folks will get exposed to it. When all is said and done, 1% or so may die and they will mainly be the elderly and immunocompromised. The average age of the person dying in the US is 80 yrs old.

    That would be over 3,000,000 US deaths. To put that number in perspective, it's more than the population of Mississippi. I don't think it'll get anywhere near that bad.

    Based on what? It started in China in January, and nowhere close to 33% of the Chinese have it. In fact, not even close to 1% have it

    There are ~ 330 million Americans, so you predict 110 million get it, and 3.3 million Americans die?

    I know this is definitely black helicopters but what if the Chinese created this virus and released it to send the world economy into disarray.

    To be at 1% of the Chinese population, they would have to gave 14,000,000 cases. To be at 33% like hoops predicted for the us, it would be 462,000,000 cases in China. You think they fudging the numbers (90,000 cases) like this?

    A lot of people will be infected and get over it. Those in a weakened immunocompromised state are going to be severely infected. I dont think it's going to be the Spanish flu, but we simply dont have the testing to tell what the actual morbility/mortality rate really is.

    It's really not hard ot fudge. 90% of cases will be in people healthy enough that they don't need to go to a Dr. Of those who do go, only test those who have ALL symptoms, or just don't test everyone. Past that, just don't report all the positive results. China is an authoritarian regime, of course they'd do that to keep panic levels down.

    Hell, right here in the USA Dr Hellen Chu in Seattle had to violate orders from the CDC to test flu patients for it, without her doing that we literally wouldn't know it's in Washington (now up to 366 confirmed cases there). A guy in NYC got sick after flying so he called the hotline to get tested. They told him he had to have 1) cough to uncontrollable to speak, 2) difficulty breathing, AND a fever of 102+... just to find out where the testing center is, not even be given one or told he would get one. If our own Gov't is doing such a bad job of tracking this you really can't trust China's numbers

    PS, Dr Brian Monahan (the head Dr for the Senate and Supreme court) says 70-150M Americans will get it, so Hoops 1/3rd estimate is right in line with what professionals think.

    People die, but it doesn?t have to be today. If me being inconvenienced saves my parents and grandparents who are all high risk for this but less so for other things, so be it.

    70-150 million with a death rate of 3% is 2.1-4.5 million deaths. I'm not buying that at all. If he's predicting 70-150 million, then I say the 3% death rate is grossly exaggerated.
