President Trump is considering imposing an enforced two-week quarantine and travel ban on New York City and the surrounding area to try to tamp down the rapidly expanding coronavirus outbreak.

“I’d rather not do it, but we may need it,” he told reporters outside the White House Saturday.

“We’d like to see New York quarantined because it’s a hotspot,” he said. “New York, New Jersey, maybe one or two other places, certain parts of Connecticut quarantined. I’m thinking about that right now.”

The rules under consideration would restrict residents of the quarantined areas from bringing the coronavirus to other parts of the country.

“They’re having problems down in Florida, a lot of New Yorkers going down. We don’t want that,” Trump said.

A Jersey City councilman has tested positive for the coronavirus, while a second councilman remains hospitalized in intensive care after showing symptoms of COVID-19.

Councilman at large Rolando Lavarro told The Jersey Journal Friday he tested positive for COVID-19 and is self-isolating at home. An aide for Ward D Councilman Michael Yun confirmed that Yun is currently hospitalized at Jersey City Medical Center awaiting the results of his test for the infectious disease.

There's a lot of interesting things on this site, though it's hard to pin down how reliable the info is. They're getting shut down tomorrow by the Thai government which is interesting in and of itself.

And BTW, if you use echinacea, you might want to stock up sooner than later:

(excerpt)...It was also during this stocking up that we discovered something else that made us more curious as further ‘digging’ revealed that the same laboratory has purchased a total of 265 tons of the Echichinacea from Canada and Eastern America suppliers in the last few weeks causing a massive shortage for supplement manufacturers, not to mention that they were also buying up processed and packed Echinacea preparations. Almost all the prestigious brands like Blackmore, Now, Life Extension, Best Nutrition, Green Life all reported that they have run out of stocks except those already in retail outlets and are unable to replenish stocks due to shortage of raw materials. We only did our checks based on foreign brands not on any Asian brands which we consider inferior as many do not contain the correct bio active ingredients despite labeling them as such, in particular brands made in Myanmar, Indonesia and certain made in Thailand brands.)

Even Hannity has turned a full 180 on minimizing the crisis because the lie was not holding anymore.

Why don't you go walk through a crowded ICU?

You know what's weird, I never realized how noisy my neighborhood was until it got very, very quiet over the last few days. It's not my neighbors - it's a total reduction of car, bus, plane and helicopter traffic that's my usual soundtrack all day long. It hit me yesterday when I took a moment to sit still for a minute. I don't think I've heard this level of quiet since I lived upstate.

(I posted this before, but I think it bears repeating as we see more cases here:)

Diarrhea and other digestive symptoms are the main complaint in nearly half of coronavirus patients, Chinese researchers report. Most patients with the coronavirus have respiratory symptoms, but these findings from the early stages of the outbreak show that digestive problems are prevalent in many patients with COVID-19.

"Clinicians must bear in mind that digestive symptoms, such as diarrhea, may be a presenting feature of COVID-19, and that the index of suspicion may need to be raised earlier in these cases rather than waiting for respiratory symptoms to emerge," wrote the investigators from the Wuhan Medical Treatment Expert Group for COVID-19.

The researchers analyzed data from 204 COVID-19 patients, average age nearly 55, who were admitted to three hospitals in the Hubei province between Jan. 18 and Feb. 28, 2020. The average time from symptom onset to hospital admission was 8.1 days.

Sigh. Lately, I find myself having to tell (and, explain) why numbers without context mean next to nothing.

Yes, in the US 61 MM were infected, but only 12.5K died from it. That puts its mortality rate at 0.02%. By comparison, at a global level, the coronavirus mortality rate currently stands at 4%. Domestically, so far, the coronavirus mortality rate has held steady at about 1.5%, which means it is 75 times more deadly than H1N1. THAT is why containment is important.


And to add to your smart explanation; the medical infrastructure is not prepared to deal with the extreme symptoms of this particular virus. When it goes bad, it goes bad fast requiring intubation. Combine that with a bad flu year and our medical resources are seriously strained.

Just stay home please. And stop complaining if you can stay home in relative comfort. There are people who are really suffering out there - and will continue to suffer well after this is over.

Millennials may be at a higher risk for catching coronavirus, official says

MDM - I think the mall is shuttered. Call the store to see if they'll deliver for you.

Folks - if you aren't already, please take the self-isolation warning seriously. The more we do now, the quicker this will be over. I'm watching what's happening in Paris right now (we have family there). Police are on the street issuing $135 tickets to people who walk outside. You have to actually get a permission slip to go outside or risk the fine. I saw this one video where a woman started confronting police and coughing on them. It shouldn't get to be like that!

Dental and physical therapy are not "non urgent" medical facilities. If you don't keep up on your physical therapy modalities for brain injuries, for instance, your mobility can be impacted forever. And dental care? What about emergencies?

I'm glad we're taking precautions, but there must be some consideration here for chronic and serious medical issues. There should also be a consistent message and implementation county wide, not town by town.

From Ruben Ramos - Hoboken City Council

Due to COVID-19 the City of Hoboken has adopted the following policies:

Suspension of street cleaning: We recognize that if people are working from home, moving their cars is only encouraging additional travel within Hoboken. It is now suspended.

Closure of fields, recreation facilities and playgrounds: In addition to the closure of City fields and recreation facilities, we’re also taking the step to close playgrounds to children as a preventative measure. City parks will remain open with the exception of fields, recreation courts, playgrounds, and restrooms.

Closure of day cares, and pop-up camps for children: Unfortunately, day cares also contribute to the gathering of people, and we had to make the difficult decision to close them, out of an abundance of caution. We also will be prohibiting any day camps or pop-up camps for children through at least the end of next week, also as a precaution.

City Hall services available by phone, email or online only: To limit travel and congregation within City Hall, and to protect employees, we are closing City Hall to the public. However, services will continue to operate either within City Hall or remotely by employees. Members of the public must call the respective department in City Hall and speak to a representative or leave a message, or send an email to the respective employee or department head, that can be found at http://www.hobokennj.gov and choosing the “departments” tab under “government”.

As the most visited department in City Hall is the Hoboken Parking Utility, I’m glad to share that every single service that has been offered at the customer service window is now offered online.

I ask residents to please be patient as we work out some of the details within City Hall operations this upcoming week. However, we will do our absolute best to accommodate normal City services whenever possible.

Our Health Department continues to recommend practicing social distancing (remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance of approximately 6 feet from others), washing and sanitizing your hands frequently, and to work from home if you are able. As I’ve advised in previous communication, I am strongly discouraging any larger discretionary gatherings within our City. If you’ve planned an event, please consider rescheduling it to a later date.

Finally, we want to let all of Hoboken know that although we are in a period of uncertainty, we are one community and I know that we will get through this together. While it’s important to be prepared, it’s not a time to panic. Please be responsible when going to the supermarket and purchase only what you need for two weeks. This will allow others to gather goods they need as well.

And most importantly, please don’t forget to show kindness to one another, empathy to your neighbors, and lend a hand to those in need. Thank you to everyone for your continued patience and understanding.

Just a thought as I was out and about today. Much of our city and county is run by small businesses - often family run stores, restaurants and services that help us in innumerable ways. With the mandated closings across our area, many of these small businesses will be hit very hard. Margins are already tight - and a loss of even a few days of revenue can be the end of a locally owned business. Let's be thoughtful in the coming days and try to support our locally owned small businesses. Shop there, offer support, offer expertise, tip better than you're expected to, etc.

If you have the ability and the choice, I know our local business owners will appreciate it greatly. Just my two cents.

This is an interesting article from a NJ coronavirus patient. In it, he talks about additional symptoms that no one else is describing (as far as I know).

(NY Post - Excerpt) James Cai, a 32-year-old physician’s assistant, said he thinks he caught the bug while attending a medical conference last weekend at a Times Square hotel, news station WCBS reported.

“It happened so quick,” Cai told the outlet. “The virus is everything. Diarrhea, watery eyes, shortness of breath, chest pain, you name it. High fever. … Every day is getting worse.”

Cai said he first visited an urgent-care clinic, then went to the emergency room at Hackensack University Medical Center, where he’s remained since Tuesday, according to the outlet.

Vanishing Oatmeal Cookie Recipe Using Quaker Oats
#27
Home away from home
Home away from home


Fun fact: The "old" recipe called for TWO sticks of butter and ONE cup of brown sugar which makes the cookies more moist and tasty in my opinion. When you store them, include one slice of white bread (like Wonder Bread) in the container to keep them extra fresh!

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup(s) (1 stick) plus 6 tablespoons butter, softened
3/4 Cup(s) firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 Cup(s) granulated sugar
2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon(s) vanilla
1-1/2 Cup(s) all-purpose flour
1 Teaspoon(s) Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon(s) ground cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon(s) salt (optional)
3 Cup(s) Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1 Cup(s) raisins

Cooking Instructions

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Add oats and raisins; mix well. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.

Serving Tips:
Bar Cookies: Press dough onto bottom of ungreased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. Store tightly covered. 24 BARS.

Variations: Stir in 1 cup chopped nuts. Substitute 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips or candy-coated chocolate pieces for raisins; omit cinnamon. Substitute 1 cup diced dried mixed fruit.

High Altitude Adjustment: Increase flour to 1-3/4 cups and bake as directed.
