Well yeah, 60 million infected and over 12 thousand dead is the result of inaction and unpreparedness. Here's to hoping history won't repeat itself.

60 plus million people is one in five people infected in the US. That is a lot, especially those with compromised immune systems. H1N1 infected many children, too.

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!

I tell people on my side of the political spectrum to back off on the conspiracy stuff and look at the fact in reality (SARS epidemic), science fiction, and 'disease war games' by the CDC, China is often 'the source' of a flu like outbreak:

Terrible pollution coupled with the fact the Chinese smoke like fiends (increases chances for respiratory infections)
Unsanitary conditions, people often living with their livestock in the same building
'Wet Markets' with wild animals sold



I am getting worried the economic fallout is going to be worse than Covid itself. My wife's employer (fashion) is in a crisis right now. Their customers are invoking Force Majeur clauses in their contracts to cancel orders, delay orders, and re-schedule payments.

There is $millions in inventory on ships, waiting to dock, that now has nowhere to go. Even if it did have someplace to go, there is not enough staff as the ports are basically shutdown to unload it. Meanwhile factories have to be paid, banks have insured those payments with irrevocable letters of credit, and the shipping companies have to keep paying their crews and fuel bills.

Basically it's a collapse of capital flows similar to what happened during the beginning of the Great Depressions.


Side note: Is Newport Mall completely closed? I got a pair of glasses I need to pick up at Lenscrafters.

You can expect schools not to reopen for the rest of the year. Bank on it. I hope I'm wrong, but I've heard from multiple people in the know.

Steven Fulop@StevenFulop (3/16/2020 twitter)

1/2 We’ve tried to be proactive w/thoughtful policy guidelines for #JerseyCity . This AM we’ll be reaching out to all of the local grocery stores (3 registers or more) + we’re going to be setting aside hours for elderly residents, ppl w/disabilities, pregnant residents

2/2.. so that only these residents will be in the stores from 9-11am starting tomorrow. The stores have been receptive as this needs to be an effort where we all work together. These are the most vulnerable residents + crowded supermarkets are a challenge for these residents

“In an unprecedented move, all movie theaters, gyms and casinos in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut will be ordered closed at 8 p.m. Monday, March 16, and will remain closed until further notice to protect against the coronavirus pandemic, the states’ governors announced.

Restaurants and bars will no longer be allowed to accept dine-in customers after 8 p.m., but will still be permitted to offer takeout and delivery. The establishments will be provided a waiver for carry-out alcohol, officials said.

The governors are also banning all public gatherings of 50 people or more in all three states.

And Gov. Phil Murphy said New Jersey is “strongly discouraging” residents from making “non-essential” travel between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. for the foreseeable future.

Murphy New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont made the announcement just after 10 a.m. during a joint conference call.

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.

www.jcnj.org/coronavirus

(Updated 3/16/2020)
Yesterday evening we had our 4th positive case and we recognize where this can trend if we don’t get ahead of it.

We were the first in the country (last week) to implement any restrictions on any sort of establishments in the city, and being that social distancing is the best solution, we will be expanding our limitations to different establishments.

This morning we are taking the steps via executive order to expand our restrictions that were implemented last week.

Effective noon today the following establishments will be closed:
- Bars and nightclubs that do not serve food
- Movie theaters, performance centers
- Gyms; fitness centers; barber shops; day care centers; nail salons; and non-urgent medical offices including, dental offices, physical therapy clinics, chiropractor offices, and all state licensed cosmetology establishments.

The following restrictions will also apply:
All restaurants are prohibited from providing dine-in services, but will be allowed to have take-out, delivery, and drive-through services.

These restrictions do not apply to:
- grocery stores, cafeterias within nursing homes or similar facilities.

Mayor's Daily Updates: Beginning March 16th, we will do a daily update for residents in Jersey City via Facebook Live on the Jersey City Facebook Page. We will do this at 2 p.m. every day for the next week. This seems like the best way for us to keep residents directly totally informed.
If you have ?specific questions you want us to answer, please email fulops@jcnj.org. We will aggregate the most frequently asked questions, and do our best to answer them.

Yeah one scary thing that came out of the virus outbreak is the below. I never knew it.

WIRED: “Ninety percent of the prescription drugs consumed in the United States are generics, and the majority of them are produced overseas, mostly in India and China”

Jersey City is now fining dollar stores for "price gouging". $10k per offense.

The other thing I noticed was cleaned out were the Ramen noodle packs.

After the Times story about the nationwide "capitalists" who stripped every dollar store within a 200 miles of their homes of masks and sanitizer to sell on Ebay, I guess anything is possible.

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.

Hoboken confirms first known case of coronavirus

Updated Mar 13, 2020; Posted Mar 13, 2020

By Teri West | The Jersey Journal

A man in his 40s is Hoboken’s first known coronavirus patient, Mayor Ravi Bhalla announced Friday.

The individual is in isolation at home and is experiencing mild symptoms, Bhalla said.

Hoboken’s health department is notifying people who have been in contact with the patient so that they can self-quarantine, he added. Residents are encouraged to call the health department at 201-420-2000 ext. 5211 if they believe they have been exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19.

“To be clear, we unfortunately anticipate the likelihood of additional positive COVID-19 cases to be confirmed in the days and weeks ahead, which have not yet been discovered,” Bhalla said. “However, we are doing everything possible to limit the spread of COVID-19 through proactive measures and regulations. I greatly appreciate the community’s cooperation during this challenging time.”

The Hoboken case is Hudson County’s third reported case of the coronavirus. Jersey City announced its first presumptive positive case Friday morning, a 41-year-old woman who lives Downtown. The county’s first patient was a 32-year-old resident of West New York.

@JCParking

With #JerseyCity schools closing next week, we are going to suspend alternate side of the street parking rules next week. Many ppl are being encouraged to work from home & many parents will be home w/children so we want to do our best to make it as easy as possible for everyone.
