Troubled Waters: Is late action in the U.S. now enough to avert a national health crisis?

11 America

U.S. officials are racing to implement new measures to stop the spread of coronavirus, which has killed at least 31 people in the country and sickened nearly 1,000. Multiple states have declared a state of emergency to help free up resources to fight the virus. In New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday that officials are implementing a “containment area” centered in New Rochelle, a suburb of New York City. Within the containment area, a 1-mile radius, large gathering places will be closed for two weeks, officials said. That includes schools and places of worship.

“We are also going to use the National Guard in the containment area to deliver food to homes, to help with the cleaning of public spaces,” Cuomo said. He added that a temporary coronavirus testing facility will be set up within the zone. Meanwhile, Italians woke up to the most severe restrictions on their every-day lives since World War II, as the number of cases globally continued to climb. As of Tuesday afternoon, there have been at least 116,000 cases worldwide. While 64,000 people have recovered, more than 4,000 have died.

In Italy, which has the largest outbreak outside China, all 60 million people were under travel restrictions, public gatherings and public sports events were canceled, and Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte told his people to stay home. He called it Italy’s “darkest hour.” Monday was the worst day on Wall Street since the financial collapse in 2008, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling nearly 8%. Markets rebounded nearly 5% Tuesday, although several economic road signs were pointing to a possible coronavirus-induced recession. –CBS

    It amazes me, with minimal testing, a truncated quarantine period, downplaying of the seriousness of the situation – NOT necessarily because of the virus but due to the “FULL STOP”
    response that is required to keep it from spreading (i.e., the CRUSH of economic activity which kills buying supplies/selling supplies/food/etc) – and, apparently making every excuse to NOT use the tests that are available, that THEY are surprised that containment is failing. It’s like THEY ask themselves, “What is the best way for us to screw this up and still claim that we are adapting to a changing situation?” Time and again, that seems to be what’s happening. I’m not a bureaucrat, and maybe that’s the difference, but A LOT of people out here are WEEKS AHEAD of the government and media, and, yet, they want to fact-check us on the info that we are trying to share? WHAT? The situation is such that I keep asking the “talking heads” and politicos: ARE YOU trying TO SPREAD THIS THING?

    With approximately 330,000 available beds nationwide, we don’t have a lot of room for error. At the present rate, NY and California are in a race to utter failure, and, afterwards, all bets are off for anybody else who needs treatment.

    I am stupified – or stupiditified – at the incompetence.
