says everyone will get coronavirus

New Jersey’s top public health official says everyone, including her, will eventually contract the coronavirus. “I’m definitely going to get it. We all are,” Judith Persichilli told NJ.com. “I’m just waiting.”  Persichilli, 71, is a member of the age demographic for which the virus is most deadly. Nevertheless, she said she believed the odds were still on her side and she would most likely have a mild form of the illness.   Persichilli has become a near-household name in the Garden State in recent weeks with regular press conferences where she reads the latest figures of coronavirus infections and deaths.

Comments:

If we are all going to get it, then why all of these precautions? It's spitting into the wind!

Perschilli is your basic RN turned administrative/political hack (MA) who has cycled though exec positions in multiple hospitals. She is no scientist, nor AP nurse, nor a doctor. So if this is true, why isolate in this "martial law lite" that her boss Murphy has imposed?

So C-virus 19 is more contagious than the Bubonic Plague-----the Black Death? Smallpox? Diphtheria?

The Diamond Princess event proves this wrong. Only 17% of the people on the ship contracted the illness. Even if you take into account that at some point exposure became far more limited, one would assume most of the people on the ship came in contact with the illness at some point and yet only 17% contracted it and of those people 52% showed no sign of disease at all. And this ship's population is heavily weighted toward seniors as the average age was in the 60's.

#2 is correct. Why are we shutting down the whole state if the vast majority are going to get it anyway. Looking at stats from CDC 80% of people show no symptoms and the 20% with symptoms only a few need special care. The influenza this year has affected more people and killed many more than cv19 yet no panic on this. Let’s get back to work.

As a doctor at Johns Hopkins Hospital told me over a week ago, most people may have already exposed to this virus, and didn't even notice it. They may have had a runny nose, watery eyes, and a cough, but just thought it was allergies. It's been a warm winter here in the Mid Atlantic region, and grass, trees, and other plants started blooming earlier than usual.

This virus is either turning people into idiots or exposing idiots. Or both. Why is this situation causing people who should know better, people who are in positions of authority and have a duty to the people, to say and do such idiotic things. This is a huge lie from this woman. If she doesn’t have the virus, stays home and doesn’t have contact with other people, she will not get the virus. No other virus in recorded history has behaved in the manner that these people are claiming this one will. This virus is not behaving the way they are claiming it will. This is pure lunacy.

Many people are going to get it. Some will become seriously ill and require hospitalization and some a ventilator. Some will infect medical personnel. Right now the hospitals are fairly full with people with the seasonal flu. A number of them need ventilators. If the government can slow the spread they have time to figure out which drugs and treatments work and companies can produce large quantities of the required drugs. With more time the seasonal flu will recede and more hospital resources (ventilators and staff )will be available to treat the Wuhan China plague. With a slower spread hospital workers will be infected at a lower rate and may have effective treatments available so the can get back to work to treat the seriously ill. It is not clear a all that "everyone is going to get it" but it is clear it has spread very quickly, easily and widely in China, Italy and Spain and at a rate that has or is going to overwhelm the medical resources available. Then people die in the hallways of hospitals waiting for treatment when they could have been saved. In short, slower spread means more time to figure out treatments, produce drugs, means more resources will be available for the critically ill and many more will be saved. If it goes dormant and comes roaring back next winter there may be both drugs and vaccines to kill it. It is not the black plague or smallpox, but it might be the Spanish flu. Slowing the spread may be the difference between a 3 or 4 % death rate and a .3 % or lower one. If you are one of the people who become seriously ill that will matter to you.

You are being lied to about the drugs that heal COVID19.

(snip) Fauci is taking the position that he and the US government should not approve Hydroxychloroquine because it might not be safe and might not be effective, based on his smear of high-quality science as mere anecdote.

What About Andrew Cuomo? 36 replies

Vice President Biden is due Monday to begin giving briefings on the coronavirus crisis so as to appear like a shadow president. There’s just one problem. Sleepy Joe, as President Trump likes to call him, has been upstaged by none other than Andrew Cuomo. It seems the doughty Democratic governor of New York has emerged as a star, while Mr. Biden is still getting a studio set up in his home. Maybe Mr. Cuomo is the one whom the Democrats should run against Mr. Trump. He has been out there every day of late with detailed updates, wise asides, references to his time in Washington, and commentary on the Constitution.

Joe Biden reached a new and heady milestone when he shellacked Bernie Sanders in Florida, Illinois and Arizona to become the de facto Democratic nominee for president. But there was no soaring speech to acknowledge the moment. He never took the stage amid a sea of Biden signs or before an adoring crowd on national television. Biden was instead stuck in a makeshift studio in his Delaware home, webcasting his remarks with a low-quality personal computer camera against a straight-out-of-YouTube black backdrop and two American flags. He warned about the coronavirus contagion. He offered an olive branch to Bernie Sanders. Then, despite two consecutive weeks of smashing victories,

Professors around the country are expressing concern that their recorded online lectures may be shared by students with conservative media outlets. According to a report by Campus Reform, professors at universities and colleges around the country are worried that their recorded online courses will be shared by “right-wing sites.” Many professors expressed concern that their classroom lectures on controversial issues like “immigration” would be picked up by conservative news outlets. In a tweet thread, professors at different universities voiced their concerns to one another. One user in the thread argued that conservative outlets have a “history of making misleading edits to remove context” and then sharing those videos “get professors in trouble.”
