Surviving Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) Day Nine

Surviving C-19 Day Nine
April 9, 2020 6:30 AM
81 Days since first US infection.

I am writing this day by day, in real time, and I post the next morning after a quick review, not an editorial process.  I am taking the numbers in real time from Johns Hopkins.  Last night these are the numbers I posted, imagine my surprise at the numbers this morning.  Some type of SNAFU took place and was fixed.  Last Night about 12 hours ago vs this morning right now.  Someone fucked up and caught their error, but not before I recorded it.

                                            Last evening                     This Morning

Global Infected                 1,511,104                             1,490,790
Global Dead                       88,338                                   88,630
Increase Infected            76,678                                   -20,314
Increase Dead                   6,118                                     292

US Infected                        429,052                 432,438
US Dead                             14,695                               14,808
Increase Infected            29,123                                  3,836
Increase Dead                 1,884                                   113

While I slept 292 more people died, of those 113 were my fellow Americans.

I write this on the day it’s dated, and post the next morning after a quick review.  I am taking the numbers in real time from the Johns Hopkins Tracker.  Last night these are the numbers I posted. Imagine my surprise at the numbers this morning.  Some type of SNAFU took place and was fixed.  I am including the error in my record of these events.  Perhaps it will have some value although I expect it was an overworked engineer who just put something in the wrong field, missed it and updated the file, I copied the data, and then they caught the error.

Dec 2, 2014 President Obama “there may and likely will come a time in which we have both an airborne disease, that is deadly, and in order for us to deal with that effectively we have to put in place an infrastructure, not just here at home but globally, that allows us to see it quickly, Isolate it quickly, and respond to it quickly. . .so that if and when a new strain of flu like the Spanish flu crops up, 5 years from now or a decade from now we’ve made the investment and we’re further along to be able to catch it.  It is a smart investment for us to make.”

Susan Rice Former US Ambassador to the United Nations and National Security Advisor under Obama
“I did spend 12 Hrs over 4 sessions briefing General Michael Flynn my successor about the various threats we faced  of course prominent among them was the risk we faced from global pandemic.  We understood this risk to be real, as you just heard President Obama say in 2014.  We had been through the 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic, we’ve been through Ebola, and Zika.  The Bush administration before us had dealt with H5N1, a very deadly strain of flu that thankfully did not spread as far, as fast, as it could have.  But we’ve known because of our expertise in Global Health and our intelligence community and the like, that we we’re overdue for a global pandemic. That it wasn’t just something you could predict, it was inevitable. The only question was when, and that’s why during the transition we spent time, trying to prepare our successors, we provided a 69 page playbook.  In effect a war plan for the incoming administration to take off the shelf. I don’t think they ever took it off the shelf, they probably put it in the trash can, given how much regard they had for anything we passed on. We established an office, under my leadership, in the national security council, called the global health security and biodefense office, with senior experts whose singular role was to scan the globe for these types of potential outbreaks, to flag them early, and enable us, with others to get on top of those so that they did not become epidemics, much less pandemic.”
