    With a place like the US worrying about overrunning hospitals, I can only image how bad it would be in the Philippines if they let this virus get out of control. There are already lines out the door to get into public hospitals and there probably aren't many ventilators to be found.

    If this is the governing rule, then we'll stay under this effing quarantine until next year. Hospital capacity isnt going to grow, and a vaccine wont appear from thin air anytime soon.

    So what is the plan? keep confirmed cases under ten for the next year while putting everybody except the top ten percent on social welfare?

    I dont know about you but I currently want to opt out.

    For whatever it might be worth, the positive trend continues.

    Well, no one in the huge city of Dumaguete currently shows symptoms/history that meet the clinical definitions of SARI/MARI/ILI. These metrics are most often used to monitor the Flu, but have also been used to track some of the other goodies that have shown up in recent times.

    Anyway, not much of a Flu season at least.

    It would be interesting to know what these numbers looked like before this virus showed up.

    It was a parade like none Philadelphia had ever seen.
    In the summer of 1918, as the Great War raged and American doughboys fell on Europe’s killing fields, the City of Brotherly Love organized a grand spectacle. To bolster morale and support the war effort, a procession for the ages brought together marching bands, Boy Scouts, women’s auxiliaries, and uniformed troops to promote Liberty Loans –government bonds issued to pay for the war. The day would be capped off with a concert led by the “March King” himself –John Philip Sousa.
    Within 72 hours of the parade, every bed in Philadelphia’s 31 hospitals was filled. In the week ending October 5, some 2,600 people in Philadelphia had died from the flu or its complications. A week later, that number rose to more than 4,500. With many of the city’s health professionals pressed into military service, Philadelphia was unprepared for this deluge of death.
    Krusen’s decision to let the parade go on was based on two fears. He believed that a quarantine might cause a general panic. In fact, when city officials did close down public gatherings, the skeptical Philadelphia Inquirer chided the decision. “Talk of cheerful things instead of disease,” urged the Inquirer on October 5. “The authorities seem to be going daft. What are they trying to do, scare everybody to death?”
    And, like many local officials, Krusen was under extreme pressure to meet bond quotas, which were considered a gauge of patriotism. Caught between the demands of federal officials and the public welfare, he picked wrong

    The local internet sites, according to my translator, are saying Degamo will decide tomorrow on the ECQ end date

    Well, I am delighted that in a population of about 132,000 people no one has anything that resembles something a bit worse than a cold. In fact, it is remarkable. But perhaps they are not telling anyone for fear of being carted off.
