    The coronavirus has caused its first death in the U.S., to a citizen of Snohomish County, Washington while hospitalized in Kirkland, WA., less than 25 miles from my area. At least, two others have tested positive for the virus, & an entire Kirkland fire department is quarantined. From communist china (always small letters) to my area: pretty good target shooting for the first shot, I'd say. We'll see if communist china(always small letters) continues its good target shooting.

    Major reductions of Nitrogen Dioxide emissions reported over communist china (always small letters):

    Tho communist china (always small letters) isn't reporting properly on the effects of the coronavirus in communist china (always small letters), other nation's satellites are showing major production decreases in communist china(always small letters).
    From the article:
    According to NASA scientists, the reduction in NO2 pollution was first apparent near Wuhan, but eventually spread across the country. Millions of people have been quarantined in one of the largest such actions in human history. As of February 28, 2020, the virus had been detected in at least 56 countries.

    “This is the first time I have seen such a dramatic drop-off over such a wide area for a specific event,” said Fei Liu, an air quality researcher at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. Liu recalls seeing a drop in NO2 over several countries during the economic recession that began in 2008, but the decrease was gradual. Scientists also observed a significant reduction around Beijing during the 2008 Olympics, but the effect was mostly localized around that city, and pollution levels rose again once the Olympics ended.

    Showing the clamp being cinched down on coronavirus informations, comes this weak, dare I say, propagandized, information-unburdened & late, Travel Advisory "update" from the Port of Seattle:
    https://www.portseattle.org/news/traveler-updates-coronavirus-response
    From the article:
    Update from March 1, 2020
    The Washington State Department of Health and King County Public Health announced the first death in the state due to the coronavirus. In addition, the Governor announced a state of emergency to use all resources necessary to prepare for and respond to the outbreak.

    Vice President Pence announced new travel restrictions.....for Iranians to expand to any foreign national who has visited Iran in the past fourteen days. In addition, the Administration is raising the travel advisories for certain regions in Italy and South Korean to the highest level, Level 4 “Do Not Travel.” The U.S. will start screening Americans in Italy and South Korea before they travel to the United States

    "Health officials continue to emphasize the risk to the public is low......"

    The Port of Seattle is working to ensure that the health and well-being of the public using its facilities and its employees during this current health situation. We continue to stay in close contact with partners from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state Department of Health, and local public health officials to follow their recommendations.

    Another information-short coronavirus article:
    https://www.businessinsider.com/wuhan-coronavirus-us-cases-health-risk-2020-1
    From the article:
    Nearly 3,000 people have died and more than 86,000 others have been infected globally, around 90% of whom are in China.
    ////////
    Earlier coronavirus reports have indicated that 2% of coronavirus-infected people die. From the miserable & poor data above, the coronavirus death rate is an estimated, 3% to 4% of people infected.

    A second death due to coronavirus has occurred at the same Kirkland, WA hospital, at which the first death happened.
    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/01/world/coronavirus-news.html
    From the article:
    Officials also announced three other confirmed coronavirus cases in the county, all at EvergreenHealth. They include a woman in her 80s, a woman in her 90s and a man in his 70s. All were in critical condition with underlying health issues. All four new cases were residents of a nursing facility in Kirkland where two other people — a resident and a worker — had previously tested positive.
    Also on Sunday, the county had previously reported two other patients, unrelated to the nursing facility, who were in critical condition at hospitals in Renton and Seattle.

    The World Health Organization has stated the world cononavirus death rate varies from 2% to as much as 5%. Can one assume the 5% figure is in areas having little to no medical facilities or help?
    One good piece of believable(?) data is the rate of infections are dropping in communist china (always small letters).
    Two items of note: 1) At least, two new hospitals have been built in Wuhan, specifically to care for coronavirus victims. Numerous large public facilities are in use for quarantine housing. 2) Chinese families often oppose individual members, who are strongly (& voluntarily?) involved in caring for coronavirus patients.

    Hi Litesong:

    This is quickly becoming serious as expected. Asian countries were monitoring people for elevated temperatures at POEs as far back as 6-weeks ago. We still have not even started and it is way late in the game.

    All of a sudden it is not a hoax. :(

    A quick look, it appears the initial death rate is 40-50(?) TIMES that of influenza. But, I compared U.S. influenza death rates, with global coronavirus death rates. I'll stand aside for anyone with better information.

    Hi Litesong:

    Death rates from the std. flu are about .1 percent. It appears the fatality rate is 2.5 percent for COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

    I wonder if people are turning out to vote today.
    Our primary is on the 17th. If we're still alive by then.

    Late update: TV said 11 deaths out of 149 infected for a 7.4% rate. Other experts state those infected are much higher(above 170+, 200?). Hopefully, lower death rates are coming....... Possibly, the Federal government's poor ramp-up is causing an artificially low infection count, showing a high death rate? :confused:

    P.S. Just saw this article:
    https://www.huffpost.com/entry/coronavirus-death-rate_n_5e5ff494c5b6f4b39568be17?yptr=yahoo

    From the article:
    In most places dealing with a sudden jump in illnesses, testing people with the earliest mild symptoms — a fever or cough — is low on the priority list. That means death rates may appear artificially high until authorities get a better handle on how widespread the illness really is. The U.S., for example, is still trying to ramp up its capability to test widely, amid criticism that person-to-person spread was going undetected.

    The "don'T rump" CDC is way beyond "the priority list" & actively denies tests for coronavirus, in a "don'T rump" political attempt to reduce coronavirus data to the world. In the mental disease that is "don'T rump", even that attempt is "don'T rump", at his sickest. Indeed, "don'T rump" is in lockstep with communist china (always small letters).
    A nurse was caring for a coronavirus patient & became sick with the same symptoms as a coronavirus patient. The ailing nurse was cleared by doctors & all agencies to be tested for coronavirius. The CDC refused to test her for coronavirus. "don'T rump" acting like "don'T rump".

    Presently, 22 people in the U.S. have died of coronavirus, out of 565 infected (under-tested & under-reported?), for a death rate 3.89%.
    Globally, 3990 corona deaths have occurred, out of 113,754 infected, for a death-rate of 3.5%.

    P.S. Today, those U.S. infected have risen to 762 cases (197 more), & deaths have jumped by 6 to 28. Overall U.S. death rate is nearing global death-rate, now at 3.67%. The recent U.S. death rate is 3%.
    Hopefully, that last bit of data is NOT a one off (& more so, compared to the earliest rates), but portends good future results, both in our country & for the world.

    Coronavirus is affecting older people more than the average population, of course. Members of Congress are considerably older than the average population, at least two members in voluntary quarantine after contact with a person, later determined to be infected with the coronavirus. Casey Hunt, news-woman for MSNBC, just floated the idea, that Congress should consider that Congress adjourn for several weeks to maintain the viability of our decision-making bodies.
