Plans for full time e-learning at home, or even those with one or two days a week, just do not work unless society is in a total lockdown.  Dual income families, or single-parent families simply have no way to keep young children at home unless at least one parent is working from home as well.  It worked 'okay' for April & May because everything but essential services was shit down.  That's not going to be the case this fall.  Indiana, for example, will be 100% open unless cases spike again. Parents have to work, and having children physically at school all day allows that tp happen.  Basically, if we don't open up schools, we can't open anything else either.

IU isn’t 100 percent open the school has implemented a number of measures to open including online class availability for a percentage of the class, spacing in clsssrooms etc

When I said 'Indiana', I was referring to the state, not the school.

And, that's the demographic most at risk.

We are doing Elearning due to our boy having some recent issues with pneumonia.

We’re basically having a shareholder fight over it. I’m on the side of keeping it despite the environment, the cost of the program in the grand scheme of things isn’t that high and it’s an investment in your lawyers to be. The misers of the firm are up in arms about it. Does everything have to be about money? 

Sounds familiar.  Lol. Some things are universal.

What is education looking like in people's areas? In Illinois we're planning on opening in August with masks, as much distancing as possible, and other precautions, but I just don't see how we'll be able to do it in person.

We struggle to find subs for teachers in the best of times, and what is going to happen when kids and teachers start getting it? What's it looking like for everyone else?

School board  for the district I work in approved a revised calendar tonight to be preemptive against a second wave. Our two week fall break is now eLearning as is the two days before and the week after Thanksgiving. We are off most of December. 

I posted the above a little earlier in the thread.

So, Gilead Sciences which just got government approval for its coronavirus drug remdisivir, announces different pricing levels, based on whether someone is in a government sponsored health plan like Medicare, or private insurance. Drug is supposed to speed up healing by up to 4 days, thus reducing the number of days needed in a hospital room. Cost benefit, I can see. Multi-tiered pricing I kinda get. Guess the idea of corporations doing what is for the common good is whimsical thinking.

I hope that insurance companies will do the right thing and fast track these new solutions to their covered medications lists.

At no point in human history has anyone been prepared for a pandemic, we cannot and never have been able to to control nature.  Take the proper precautions and let it ride. Nothing we can do will stop it so let it ride.  

We cant experience another great depression because 1% of the US population might die.

To circle back on the question of "do we have enough tests right now," the answer in AZ is pretty plainly "no."

 

If you try to get tested in Texas - at least in The greater Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio areas, then:

1) you can’t unless you’re exhibiting symptoms, so no testing for asymptotic people, and 

2) Good luck waiting hours in lines if you are allowed to be tested. 
 

Horrible planning and preparation all around

Colorado looking good!

As I posted early in this thread. Colorado was the first state to implement drive through testing.  And has only increased the testing facilities since then.

A Tx atty who manages healthcare facilities had this to say (You may have to go to his twitter and click on the individual-links to see better)

Basically, he says 1/2 the visits to the ER are people sent by employers to get a test, most positive cases are very mild, low fatalities and hospital beds are being filled by the people who put off care for the last couple months. 

He calls it a "positive story". Maybe there is something positive happening in TX? The few comments I read seem to back up his claim. 

Interestingly, the tweeter is an author and I think I have read a book or two of his.

So we have had several positive tests in the last couple of weeks at our two plants! One today came in without any symptoms, and without a temperature, but because they had been in proximity of a positive they were tested! Completely asymptomatic they tested positive!
Still in spite of the wild fluctuations of the cases curve the deaths curve continues a steady trend down!! 
I’m beginning to think only God knows!

I mentioned this a couple pages back but the death curve is about 15 days behind the cases curve.People don’t die the day they are diagnosed. At this time late next week if it stays down then I’ll consider that good news. Unfortunately I have a feeling it will be increasing.
