May

May to Mid May,  the corona thing in the Northern Hemisphere pretty much dies out ( at least seasonally ).

So the Northern economies rock and roll some W quite a few pent up product and service  demands.  

As far as the Southern Hemisphere ( winter there ) guess we'll see what happens down there.  

Hopefully they have good going.

Re: May

Nobody knows. But the expert consensus seems to be that it might have peaked late April- early May and probably plateaus through much of May.

Falling slowly after several weeks of daily deaths in the thousands isn't going to feel like Shangri-La.

Re: State by state, day by day, no state has anywhere nearly enough ventilators.

Look here, Corvid19.healthdata.org/projections.  No state has nearly enough ventilators. Many states haven't implemented the maximum mitigation measures and their citizens will suffer for it.  Take Iowa for instance, they haven't implemented any.

Re: State by state, day by day, no state has anywhere nearly enough ventilators.

But here in Iowa we have Republican control so we are automatically immune to it.  Only the godless Democrats need to have any concerns about this virus.  See the other post its only a problem in Democratic controlled states.

Re: May

Wrightcattle, if your theory was correct Louisiana wouldn't have the high death toll that it does. If we look back to the Spanish flu of 1918, that illness spread across the country extremely fast. The worst of the Spanish flu died with it's host. The illness that survived was what we know today as H1N1, a weaker form Spanish flu. Sure, warmer temps degrade a virus, but we are prolonging the inevitable with everybody staying home. Herd immunity (60% infected) is the only way for the world to beat this.

For us over 60 crowd the hope for us is a vaccine or treatment at first onset.

Re: May

Hobby, the best thing for the 60 and over crowd IS to stay home. Let us younger people get this nasty crap. I am pretty sure me and a cousin of mine already had it. I never went to the hospital, but probably should have. My cousin went to the hospital and was told to go home and self isolate for 2 weeks.

Re: May

Sometime soon, you might be able to get a blood antibody test to see if you already had covid-19.   Because they were only testing those with symptoms (and still are in most places in US), they don't really have any idea how many people have or had it.  At some point, they will likely at least do a sample study to get some idea, at least for statistical purposes.  Then  it should be part of blood panel testing at some future doctor's appointment.

In china

The corona has suppressed or basically run its course. 

The spread of the disease is basically over....has been for a couple 3 weeks. 

There's a name for the afore re.. disease stages... Perhaps suppression.

China has had some weeks now W 1 to 5 new disease cases And perhaps 2 weeks W No New breaks too.
