The virus is a lung bug, simple as that. If is gets into sick lungs, the person is in for trouble and could get more sick to the point of dying. The virus causes pneumonia-like conditions and has to be fought like the person has pneumonia. If the person has a strong immune system, he or she will survive, if not - it's probably 9th inning. If the person caught a really bad Cold or a really bad case of the Flu, the same thing would probably result. The point is, this thing is NOT extremely unusual or unbeatable. It is a very Typical Virus!

Is it a matter of reporting or a matter of hospitals not adhering to normal everyday procedures that protect against spreading contagious diseases?

Something is not right...

More likely someone that was carrying the bug visiting the patient Ö

Two people in my family were seriously ill and in the hospital. In both instances, it was stated quarantined in big red letters, and an explanation underneath, so no one with any sort of illness would enter. Nurses had to meet you and escort you before you could enter the ward.
Under current circumstances, I don't understand why that wouldn't be considered necessary in any of our hospitals.

Went to grocery store. Everything was pretty normal other than spots on the floor at check-out stands to keep people somewhat apart. They also wiped down the cashier area after each customer went by. Very few shelves did not have stuff. As we drove around, still a lot of empty parking lots. Saw cars at take-out windows at fast food places. I think this will begin to pass out West here pretty soon - -

Not sure what the answer is with this coronavirus. You can be a carrier and show no symptoms. I guess one could test all the staff (how often?) and cut the patient off from all visitors Ö but I'm not sure the former is practical Ö but the latter is akin to what some/most/all nursing homes are doing now. No contact with outsiders Ö

Here's some common sense you wont hear on TV!


Average age of people dying from COVID-19 . . 80!



Reality Check Daily Covid Bulletin
Total deaths from illnesses resulting in Covid in all America Today 1,197 ( average age 80 with 3 underlying health conditions) out of 327,000,000 population
Odds of dying in America of Covid19 .000610
98% of the active 114,978 cases in America are just fine- mild to no symptoms and no hospital stay or treatment (112,678)
So only 2,300 in the entire country - ALL of America are considered serious or critical
Your chances of being in serious condition or considered life threatening with this?
0.000741
IN COMPARISON TO FLU
On the other hand,
INFLUENZA America 2018-19
34,200 deaths last flu season
490,600 cases serious or critical
*healthy people canít give someone an illness they donít have.
* even sick people that donít know they are sick or do know they are sick STILL cannot infect everyone around them because healthy people arenít susceptible. Last time you had the flu- did everyone around you get it? No. Because they have their own immune systems.

The mistakes that are being made I hope will teach us better how to handle the next virus, and believe me, there will be more....it's the nature of the beast..
