It’s mostly due to a lack of testing and the timeframe of when clusters started. The US number per million is going to skyrocket as we have clusters spread throughout the country, rather than in just one location. Seattle, LA, NYCish, and the 95 loop around Boston. All major clusters that will be blowing up in a week with people who are currently infected but are still asymptomatic. But hopefully it will then stabilize as our isolation practices minimize new infections.Lower population density and multiple big oceans between us will tend to help with that.
Allah will protect them... inshallah.They're not cancelling this;
JAKARTA/KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Thousands of Muslim pilgrims from across Asia gathered in Indonesia on Wednesday, despite fears that their meeting could fuel the spread of a coronavirus, just two weeks after a similar event in Malaysia caused more than 500 infections.
Organisers and regional officials said the event in the world’s fourth most populous nation had begun, although the regional police chief said he was making a last ditch-effort to persuade organisers to call it off.
“We are more afraid of God,” one of the organisers, Mustari Bahranuddin, told Reuters, when asked about the risk of participants spreading the virus at the event in Gowa in Indonesia’s province of South Sulawesi.
“Because everyone’s human, we fear illnesses, death,” he said. “But there’s something more to the body, which is our soul.”
Organisers had rejected a formal request from authorities to postpone the gathering, said a regional official, Arifuddin Saeni.
He estimated that 8,695 people had already assembled in Gowa, near the provincial city of Makassar, adding that the numbers would make it hard to put a halt to the proceedings
HUNDREDS INFECTED IN MALAYSIA
About two-thirds of Malaysia’s 790 infections have been traced to the meeting at a mosque complex on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur, the capital.

Daycares should have been the first thing to close.
How many deaths? Sorry, it's not a plague.One of the only legitimate roles of government is to protect the people. The normal people in our country need to be protected from the retards who are still hanging out in bars like there is not a plague raging through the world.
There is enough legitimate concern around to not have all caps, straight up, skeerd posts. No one is coming for your guns at the fed level.TOTAL HORSE CRAP. THE COMMIES HAVE STARTED THEIR WAR ON US. SPREAD PANIC, SHUT DOWN BUSINESSES, LIMIT PEOPLE TO GATHER. WHATS NEXT GO HOUSE TO HOUSE AND CONFISCATE OUR GUNS. OR STARVE US FIRST.
I’d be telling them FU. If I’m not being paid for stand by then don’t call me. I’m not an on call, call boy.They sent me home today. I am considered 'essential', I normally work no matter what. I'm still technically working, told not to drink, be ready to roll, but from my house.
I think the general theory is keep us healthy as long as they can. When local PD's start to crater, they'll call us in. I've responded to other disasters, this one will probably top them all.
It's part of the game, so for now I'll play. It is what it is, I'll be healthy when they need me. Thing is, once I go back out, I won't be coming home until it's over. Not going to risk bringing it into my house. I just hope it's local because I really don't want to leave my wife and kids just as things start to really fall apart. I don't want to have to make that kind of decision.I’d be telling them FU. If I’m not being paid for stand by then don’t call me. I’m not an on call, call boy.
Had this conversation with the bride tonight.
We don’t work “at will” or on call. We can head north while healthy and let the city burn.
jeez, i am perplexed. Have a big consulting gig that is supposed to start april 1st. I could use the money, but on the other hand, if i get the black shakes from being around other workers....the money is not worth it. About a hundred people at the work site....trying to figure out what to do.
Saw one of my friends on FB yesterday post a picture of a plastic soda cup full of beer they got delivered.NH for the WIN!
CONCORD, N.H. (WHDH) - Restaurants in New Hampshire can now offer customers beer and wine with their take-out orders, Gov. Chris Sununu announced Wednesday. As part...whdh.com
Pfft. Missouri's got him beat. In all but the far E/W sections, there is NO open container law. Go to the restaurant. Get your takeout and your takeout booze. Drink it on the way home.

I work at the major liquor/beer distributor in RI and we are seeing numbers this last week the same we see the week before 4th of July. Oh and that's with every bar and restaurant in the state not ordering, just liquor stores. Ridiculous!Pennsylvania closes all "Non-Life Sustaining" businesses, but thankfully allows beer distributors to remain open:
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf ordered all businesses considered “non-life-sustaining” to close their physical locations by 8 p.m. Thursday.www.wkbn.com
It's likely that people are worried that the breweries will shut down so they're stocking up for the long run.I work at the major liquor/beer distributor in RI and we are seeing numbers this last week the same we see the week before 4th of July.
