The Covid-19 Crisis

Palm Beach County Update:

June 28: Untill now we parked, put on masks, entered eatery, sat down, took them off, ordered and ate. So far so good

But on Friday the manager warned me to put my mask back on when I left. Here's why:

Within the limits of Palm Beach County, a mask is now a mandate.

To curb the growing number of coronavirus cases, county officials made wearing a facial covering obligatory inside buildings where the public is welcome, and outdoors when physical distancing is impossible, starting Thursday.

Masks can come off while eating, drinking or exercising. As soon as that’s done, back on the mask goes.According to the county mask order, anyone who doesn’t comply may, after a warning, faces a $250 fine, then a $500 fine for each additional violation. County and municipal law-enforcement agencies are “authorized to enforce” the order.

The goal, however, is to emphasize the importance of wearing a mask to protect others, County Mayor Dave Kerner said last week.

OUCH!!! According to the county, suspected violations of the mask-wearing order can be reported by calling 561-24COVID (242-6843) or emailing covidcompliance@pbcgov.org.

That'll sure emphasize the importance.

These are the rules for wearing masks

UK for The Fourth?

Lockdown finishes on July 4, Boris Johnson has said. Pubs, cinemas, second homes and holiday parks will reopen. Facemasks, planning ahead and long queues are likely to be the norm as venues adapt to the new rules

There Is a ‘Tipping Point’ Before Coronavirus Kills

The new coronavirus causes little more than a cough if it stays in the nose and throat, which it does for the majority of people unlucky enough to be infected.

How does it make people sick, and
why does it kill some of them?

Well-intentioned over-reaction?

A retired doctor, Dr George Birdwood, of Shipton Moyne, Gloucestershire, sent this letter to The London Daiiy Telegraph:

I have been reflecting on how we would have reacted to a coronavirus epidemic in those days (He qualified in in 1953): The answer is not at all, for three main reasons:

1:'The Covid-19 virus could not have been identified rapidly enough, if at all.

2: Most cases would have been too mild to attract attention in this season of coughs and sneezes.
3: And the small proportion of deaths among elderly people with chronic respiratory disease would have remained much as usual .

"It follows that there would have been no alarm or counter-measures. International trade and travel would have carried on as usual. World stock markets would not have collapsed. And governments would not have needed to get involved.
"As it is today, we know too much about the coronavirus for our own good, but almost nothing about treating its victims or preventing its spread

I do worry that what we're seeing right now is well-intentioned over-reaction.
