Florida reported a new record of 3,822 new COVID-19 cases today:
Italy had 6,600 cases on its worst day on 21 March before cases started going down. That was almost 2 weeks after the...
Maybe they want reshoots on Season 2 of The Mandalorian, which can't happen now and would delay the planned release date?
Disney+ needs new content, especially now that everyone is at home. Netflix just reported 16 million new sign-ups due to lockdowns.
The flattening of new cases per day may also be caused by testing limits.
If they're only able to test 10,000 per day and ~ 10% are positive you won't get more than 1,000 new cases per day on the graph.
It is so sad to see that so many people distrust the media, experts and government to such an extent. Do the media and government officials get it wrong sometimes? Yes, of course. You shouldn't blindly believe everything you hear. But for so many Americans to have such a deep mistrust of these...
Some people seem incapable of extrapolating data and understanding exponential growth. We're just at the beginning of this and it can get a lot worse. If a state has "only 1500" cases it's well on its way to getting overwhelmed unless drastic social distancing measures are taken. Italy had "only...
Each state is going through its own thing. The University of Washington has put together these projections for each state: http://covid19.healthdata.org/projections
You can see that they estimate New York will have its peak mid-April, but Florida not until early May and Virginia not until mid-May.
Exactly. Without herd immunity or a vaccine and 99% of the population still susceptible, you can't just lift social distancing in the summer and go back to normal. You have to go slowly. It was just one person in China who started all this.
Look at graphs of previous flu pandemics and there is...
$350,000 seems extremely low. Even if all 80,000 cast members make just minimum wage, that alone would be 80,000 x $8.46 x 8 hours = $5.4 million per day.
I'm concerned that this crisis will go on for a long time. China has been in lockdown for 2 months and they did a very good job keeping it...
Kinsa smart thermometers use real-time data for this health map. Look how red Florida is right now.
Article about it:
This state needs to shut down like California right now!
I wish they would cancel this race already. There's no way they are having a race with 20,000+ runners in less than 4 weeks...
It works for me. They keep changing the layout. The list of counties is now on the right and they added some more stats. I hope they'll add the number of recovered patients once people start recovering.
I was thinking about the Spanish Flu and Walt Disney, who was born in 1901. The Spanish Flu affected young people very hard, and Walt Disney was 17 years old at the time. It turns out that he actually caught the Spanish Flu and survived. See: Ten Famous People Who Survived the 1918 Flu.
Exponential growth starts slow, but we're just at the beginning of this.
It took 3 months to reach 100,000 cases worldwide and 12 days to reach 200,000.
Hopefully the measures that are being taken will be enough to flatten the curve and not overwhelm the healthcare system.
Exactly! That's why some countries are finally seeing their peak of cases starting to flatten about 2 weeks after a lockdown. The longer we wait with enforcing stricter measures the longer this will drag out. I wish Florida would shut non-essential businesses and shut the beaches. Seeing the...
