Well she had this conference in New Orleans that was paid for, so we used the credit to buy me a GODDAM NONREFUNDABLE MOTHERFUCKING TICKET to New Orleans and now the convention is cancelled so maybe I can go by myself?

The answer to limiting the spread seems simple enough: quarantine
 

Since most people carrying the bug show no outward signs or symptoms, ever, and those who do get ill take 2 weeks before they start sneezing droplets all over my desk, I don't see anything simple about a quarantine. Restrict all movement in and out of any public space until May. That might work.

Or wash your hands. Handwashing stations on every street corner. Put in 5¢, get a robot scrub with lysol and a mechanical manicure. Hold still now!

Maybe next time.
 
This is what my company has done all over the building including hand sanitizer and the Prell stuff which I have become addicted too and it has nothing to do with the virus, I just like how it makes my hands so soft and pretty.

This gets my vote. Probably not to many crowds and you'll have the plane to yourself.

 

Yeah and I'm guessing the hotels are reeling right now. Think they're willing to entertain offers yet?

I was referring to "asymptomatic cases," which to some experts sounds like a worst case scenario, if someone walking around with the bug infects a hospital or nursing home... but this quote is a little less worrying:


At the same time, there’s also evidence of asymptomatic cases. And it’s possible that as we discover more of these cases, Covid-19 will seem more like seasonal flu than like SARS. That’s because infectious diseases typically look more severe when they’re first discovered since the people showing up in hospitals tend to be the sickest.

So "most people" may not be correct, that was the take I read last night but things change quickly.

Infrastructure is the problem. This brings on a pneumonia, which takes longer to defeat, so it could overwhelm our bed capacity. Yes there are drugstores on every corner that could do the testing but I just saw a headline that "a million" test kits are ready to ship. That sounds like not enough to crow about.
 
exactly.  we need more testing, to better control the virus from spreading, this one or the next. 
Possible silver lining in all this, maybe people will become more accustomed to proper public hygiene practices, hand washing, staying home when sick, and companies being ok with that...

see ramp up in testing.
I haven't read anything that said the 'most people show no symptoms'...and i dont know the science/math, but imagine that the % of "carriers" with NO symptoms is pretty small. So first sign of any flu like symptom, get a test and if positive, remove yourself from the pool.  Not full proof, but should help, no? 

ps.,its not like we dont have the infrastructure to handle the volume...i think there are now more 24 hour emergency care outlets than walgreens and cvs', which by the way also could do testing.
