Its actually rather fortunate this doesn't happen more often. All those stupid wet markets around the world should probably be producing these things a lot more often...

Eventually one will pop up that has the asymptomatic spread rate of this one and a much higher mortality rate... and then the world is phuckered

See, here is the rub. Experts seem fairly convinced that getting it will only provide for very temporary immunity and also seem convinced, mutation of the virus is expected.

There also does not seem to be much confidence that the weather is going to impact the spread. If so, while the summer break would be beneficial, it would only be a stay of the spread until the winter months that follow.

I will continue to hope for your best case though.

I didn’t say I thought it was likely, just that it’s the best case.

Just to drift the thread, in true DGCR fashion.

One of the things I have learned is that half of the school age children in Michigan are getting some kind of government supported food program. There are very big efforts here to continue to ensure that those kids have food.

WTF....half of the people in the state that I live in, that are having children, have no way to feed them? Christ, that is startling.

So sad and frustrating. Separation of the classes has just about been achieved.

Given how prepared we have been to date I am not counting on any base case scenario.

Also it most likely we be some where between 100,000 to 125,000 cases if not more by next weekend.

Or 2,500 dead. And then 3 days after that it will double and then double till the peak.

Re: immunity. There’s a theory that even with fading immunity and mutations, having had the virus may make subsequent reinfections minor. And of course if people who have had it get out in society and keep getting exposed I would imagine that will tend to keep their immunity intact as well. Also, other viruses have been shown to have their evolution favor milder strains, and if we keep isolating people who get really sick (or they die) the predominant version of the virus will tend toward a milder strain (assuming any mutations actually effect the severity/transmissibility of the virus).

There are a couple papers out now theorizing that covid spreads easiest in a certain temperature band, but of course at this stage it’s hard to separate correlation from causation.

Of course this is all sort of pissing in the wind since none of us are virologists or epidemiologists but it passes time in social distancing.

I plan to play disc golf this weekend and plan to do it safely.

I will play alone and have no plans to disinfect my putters or discs despite planning to putt into baskets. The courses around here aren't particularly busy, so maybe that's one reason I'm less concerned. But is anyone really concerned about picking up the virus after putting into a basket? Yes, I will wash my hands before and after playing and will try to remember not to touch my face.

If I see you on the course, I will probably stay 6 feet away from you. But I would have done that anyway.

That's sadly amazing when you consider how many folks work for one of the Big 3, or suppliers... or in logistics / supply chain associated with the auto industry...not just near Detroit, but other parts of the state, too.

You may not get rich working those jobs, but if you got one, feeding your kids ain't an issue.

I always thought MI was decent state to achieve a middleclass income in.
