I've had mild symptoms since Tuesday evening ( fever/chills, headache, body aches) certainly less painful
than the flu/sinus infection I had last November and I am feeling a lot better this evening.

Well gee man take care of yourself and Frank. Let me know how it goes... get lots of sleep and liquids.

Judging by this thread alone, yes, you guys are not taking it seriously enugh.

Are those young adults, running around ignoring all requests to help protect everyone, going to be cool when they are told that their Father is not going to be assisted to breath with a vent. That we simply have younger, stronger patients with less co-morbidity that we will save instead. That is what they have done in Italy, set an age and help only those younger.

Keep in mind, italy had severe restrictions in place for two weeks now and the numbers of cases are still rising. A little slower, but still rising.

If you look at the US graph, you can see that you are at the very beginning of the outbreak and if you close everything NOW and quarantaine the entire country, it will still take 2 to 3 weeks before these measures slow down the spread. And the growth will keep happening exponentially in those 2-3 weeks.

That combined with the fact that half of the americans dont have health insurance -> you will have more deaths than most 3th world countries.

The virus shows us very well if we have a working health system, working infrastructure and politicians who can act intelligent in a time of crysis. Your health system is a joke and so is your president.

I guess doomsday preppers weren't so stupid afterall. Locking yourself in somewhere on the countriside for the next 6 months is the best thing you could do at the moment.

Hong Kong is shutting down again cause they let their guard down.

This **** will be around tilll we have everybody vaccinated or immune. As soon as we lower our restrictions, we will have more cases again. Vaccines are estimated for 2021.

Stay at home guys, stay at home. For a long time.

Ohio has about 1 million more people and 1/3 the cases of covid-19 that we do.

Why are we still getting on I-94 and going to our jobs? This is insanity.

Looks like we are going to get the shelter in place order today. I was brought out of RN retirement today. I work full time in IT, building and maintaining the electronic medical record system used by nursing and physicians (as well as all other ancillary clinical/non clinical hospital staff).

I have been told that I will move back to clinical work full time and to transition my current workload. Really my worst fear. I am not a young man, I am not interested in working the hardest job I have ever had (by far) again. I am not interested in putting my entire family at an additional risk. Yet, my employer is not interested in what my interests are, lol.

Maybe more personal info than anyone here wants to know, but it is indeed a sign of how strained the healthcare system is already.

Starting 11:59 tonight Ohio is shut down but they are still encouraging getting outside at safe distances.

Dang. You just got drafted. :(

May your PPE be plenty and your patients be light.

Stay healthy out there, man.
