Surviving Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) Day Thirty Five

Surviving C-19 Day 35
May 5, 2020 5:30 AM
105 Days since first US infection

Global Infected                 3,522,593                             3,603,217
Increase Infected            76,302                                   80,624

Global Dead                       247,744                 251,910
Increase Dead                   3,622                                   4,166

US Infected               1,158,341    1,180,634                              
Increase Infected            25,272                                  22,293

US Dead                              67,686                                  68,934
Increase Dead                   1,301                                     1,248

US Tested                           7,053,366*                          N/A

John Hopkins removed the testing record, replacing it by a deaths/reco0vered by state field.  Here are the top five . . .
24,999 deaths, 58,950 recovered New York

7,910 deaths, 15,642 recovered New Jersey

4,139 deaths, 15,659 recovered Michigan

4,090 deaths, 0 recovered Massachusetts

2,838 deaths, 0 recovered Pennsylvania

I do not think this is as valuable to know right now, but that might change.  I suspect the folks at John’s Hopkins think that it will be so, which is tragic.

Let’s check those canaries, even though most of our states are now canaries as well . . .

In Montana, #43 most populous, 451 of 1,068,778 confirmed infected
Not included due to small size

In Alaska, #48 most populous, 351 of 731,545 confirmed infected
Not included due to small size

In South Dakota, #46 most populous, 2,631 of 884,659 confirmed infected, an increase of 37 cases

In Minnesota, #22 most populous, 6,663 of 5,639,632 confirmed infected, an increase of 571 cases

In Oklahoma, #28 most populous, 3,972 of 3,956,971 confirmed infected, an increase of 72 cases

In Tennessee, #16 most populous, 13,177 of 6,829,174 confirmed infected an increase of 394 cases

In Mississippi, #34 most populous, 7,550 of 2,976,149 confirmed infected an increase of 327 cases

In Georgia, #8 most populous, 28,945 of 10,617,423 confirmed infected, an increase of 507 cases

In South Carolina, #23 most populous, 6,626 of 5,148,714 confirmed infected, an infected increase of 131 cases

In Texas, #2 most populous, 31,998 of 28,995,881 confirmed infected, an increase of 814

The numbers seem like a plateau, lot of wobble, some down, others up, about fifty fifty.

Colorado man planning armed protest against state’s coronavirus restrictions arrested for pipe bombs

Do people like this realize they paint all Trump supporters with their brush? 
“A Colorado lockdown opponent was arrested for possession of pipe bombs.”

“Federal agents executed search warrants Friday morning at the Loveland home of Bradley Bunn, where investigators said they found four pipe bombs and potential pipe bomb components, reported ABC News.  The 53-year-old Bunn had been helping to organize an armed protest demanding the state government end its coronavirus restrictions.  Authorities began investigating Bunn after they were alerted to angry and aggressive social media posts encouraging others to bring military-style weapons to a May 1 demonstration at Colorado’s capitol building.”–Raw Story

“Malaria ‘completely stopped’ by microbe”

“What is this microbe?  The malaria-blocking bug, Microsporidia MB, was discovered by studying mosquitoes on the shores of Lake Victoria in Kenya. It lives in the gut and genitals of the insects. The researchers could not find a single mosquito carrying the Microsporidia that was harboring the malaria parasite. And lab experiments, published in Nature Communications, confirmed the microbe gave the mosquitoes protection. More than 400,000 people are killed by malaria each year, most of them children under the age of five.  While huge progress has been made through the use of bed nets and spraying homes with insecticide, this has stalled in recent years. It is widely agreed new tools are needed to tackle malaria.”—BBC

Beaches are reopening across the U.S. Here’s what experts say you need to know before returning.

By the end of this mo0nth we will know how little or how deeply C-19 has infected us all.  If deeply we won’t have the immense bloom I fear, it also means the bug is more infectious and able to go undetected in the population for a long while.  If we do have the bloom, as I fear, those who go out to work will become infected and they will infect the vulnerable, and we will have to dig a lot of graves.

“There is mourning in America. Today more than 60,000 Americans have died from a deadly virus Donald Trump ignored.  With the economy in shambles more than 24 million Americans are out of work.  The worst economy in decades.  Trump bailed out Wall Street, but not Main Street. This afternoon millions of Americans will file for unemployment with their savings run out; many are giving up hope.  Many worry that a loved one won’t survive covid-19. There is mourning in America and under the leadership of Donald Trump our country is weaker, and sicker, and poorer; and now Americans are asking, “If we have another four years like this, will there even be an America?”
The Lincoln Project Ad against Trump (Conservative Group)

Maine infected                 1,205                                     1,226
Increase Infected            20                                           21

Maine Dead                       57                                           61
Increase Dead                   1                                             4

While I spent my day in isolation, 22 more Mainers entered the battle and 4 more lost that battle.
