    Likely, before or after the peak would be best. If one was to get it.

    "If everybody's got it anyway, who cares." is probably the mindset.

    Those people already did the damage, unknowingly, weeks ago. Containment/isolation has failed and they are hunkering down for 2 or 3 weeks of hell right now it seems.

    Population density mixed with frequently touched/high-traffic public spaces and a large population of people that travel to/from China and Italy going under the radar for weeks are the main factors that were brought up. Not in this press conference but by the female physician on Trump's team, Deborah I think.

    NYC is about to be a death zone. A new peak case estimate of 14-21 days from today, with new infections doubling every 3 days. Seems the shelter-in-place order did not do enough to curb the spread, at least in NYC and surrounding areas. With the population density and the length of time this thing can live on surfaces it's not surprising. Sadly. video for anyone interested:

    That was my take on it as well. Trump wants to convey hope to people saying hydroxichloroquin might be effective at treating this, Fauci agreed with him but stipulated that the drug still needs to be tested (which it is starting today, 10,000 doses going to patients in NY supposedly) to see verifiable results so the FDA can approve it as a form of treatment for dire cases. That's businessman/politician vs. doctor/scientist speak. Same idea just different approaches for different crowds. Fauci wanted to avoid people going out and buying chloroquin used for other purposes, taking it as "medicine" and dying. https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/man-dies-after-ingesting-chloroquine-attempt-prevent-coronavirus-n1167166 I never thought I would say this but for the last few days at least I think Trump has been doing as good a job as anyone could in the position we are in. Nobody knows exactly how to deal with this. He seems to be listening to the people on his task force at the very least. I guess we'll see how good a job they are doing after this is all over. Maybe I'll be eating my shoe, but I hope not.

    Testing to see who has it is losing out in importance every day to testing to see who has had it and is now immune. Really hope they get those antibody test kits rolled out quickly, that would give a much clearer picture of where we stand, at least in areas that aren't currently drowning in cases. If even 10 or 20% of a given population is effectively immune, that would slow the spread by quite a bit, and from yesterday's press conference it sounds like they are starting to think this spread a lot further a lot sooner than previously thought.

    The death tally won't outpace total deaths from other factors but it will be enough to put a dent in the averages for this year, should things get really out of control. That said, risk of death for this overall is very low. It's just a lot higher than the other more common highly communicable diseases out and about right now.

    Got my new suit in the mail. Wore it around the house for a few hours while working just to smell like I'm going riding.
