Huh? Why would YouTube remove that video....All it is, is a doctor from New York City claiming to be treating several patients with those 2 drugs, plus zinc. Weird

They shut down New York, but as soon as they said they were going to, everyone GOT THE FUCK OUT and dispersed all over the place, taking their fucking infections with them.

Unfortunately it was way too late for that to even matter.

The nature of this virus — lengthy 1 to 3 week incubation period, combined with asymptomatic transmission — means that as long as 1 person somewhere in the world has it, we're always a few months away from it spreading across the planet. That is, UNLESS extreme social distancing measures are enacted, along with targeted widespread testing, contact tracing, etc. à la South Korea. (Or until herd immunity is achieved, ideally by a vaccine.)

As far as I can tell, most of the Western democracies seem to be approximately in the same boat, in terms of the half-measures they've taken.

Indeed, Trump was taking stronger measures early on than many of our allies (travel bans in late Jan / early Feb)  - but it was still too little, too late.

That said, the response from elected officials in NYC was a parade of incompetence.

Sorry for the spam, but this appears to be an ok video on the drug:


https://youtu.be/Kdye8z1GoNE

Apparently when you combine that with the antibiotic zpack (azithromycin), and zinc it works well. I hope it does. Zinc is the closest thing to a cure for the common cold (rhynovirus) so maybe these 3 things DO help. Maybe they don't.

If his phone battery was dead, how did he know four units called him.
If they contacted him by landline, why did the police need to knock on his door?

My guess would be that they informed him of that when they got there.

1 out of 9 dies in Italy. Average age in Italy is 42, in America it's 35(or I at least heard that on the radio).

And... Something still ain't right with China's numbers.

I think it's not good any way we slice it, but some care is needed to distinguish between Infection Fatality Rate and Case Fatality Rate.

IFR is hard to know right now, but countries vary in how they report CFR.

A recent thread goes into what detail is presently available:
