    The Covid-19 thread

    Your numbers may be based on people who show symptoms, not the whole population. Here is the linK: https://www.imperial.ac.uk/media/imperial-college/medicine/sph/ide/gida-fellowships/Imperial-College-COVID19-NPI-modelling-16-03-2020.pdf A respected London's Imperial College COVID-19 Response Team estimates that about one to two million will die in US from the coronavirus. So this is seen to be much worse than the seasonal flu.https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/17/healt...udy/index.html

    US Population in 1918 was about a third of today's. In percentage terms, about 0.7 % of the population died in the pandemic of 1918 and 0.3 % to 0.6 % are estimated to die from the Coronavirus. An average American has a 99+ percent chance of surviving this pandemic per estimate. With odds like that, I shouldn't be too concerned, right? A million deaths from this virus, however, could overwhelm the healthcare system and compromise social order.

    It’s been estimated by a respected COVID-19 team that about 1-2 million will die in the US from this virus, even more than the pandemic of 1918 that killed about 675,000.

    Wow. That is amazing. I was thinking it would be more like 50,000 - 100,000 deaths based on a CDC estimate of 300,000 - 600,000 deaths worldwide this season. They could be fake numbers. Unbelievable.

    Do you have a link for that 30? It’s highly unlikely that only 30 people in China died from the seasonal flu.

    It looks like China already has this virus under control. Yesterday they reported no new cases, just 3-4 months since this started. They lost a lot more people to the seasonal flu.

    Life could be depressing for a while with the Coronavirus. In a corner of my basement, I had stashed some whole grain wheat (cases packed in Nitrogen) to be used during pandemic, zombie apocalypse, nuclear war, etc. The problem is that the stuff has been there ~ 40 years, since the Carter administration. But I opened up a can and, to my surprise, it is still good after all that time! Hopefully, this pandemic is short lived.

    https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/19/coronavirus-treatment-trump-directs-fda-to-examine-whether-malaria-drug-can-be-used.html President Trump said he directed the FDA to investigate whether an existing drug for malaria can be used to treat the coronavirus. Some scientists have said the anti-malaria drug chloroquine could be a treatment for the coronavirus.
  9. I predict that Trump will be the first to be impeached twice!
  10. Blade Runner -- I didn't realize it's a film noir when I saw it years ago. I saw it again on Netflix yesterday.
  11. You may say that now but things can change. I have not been to LOS for a couple of years (hanging around the Caribbean now) but I may return to LOS soon. As far as the future of this board is concerned, I think it depends a lot on cost vs benefit. It would be too much to run a board like this if you are losing money. I been posting on this board before it became Thai360, since the late 1990's and I hope it stays active.
  12. I think you are confusing cellular data with wifi. https://www.wonderoftech.com/wi-fi-vs-cellular-data/
  13. RIP We exchanged a few posts I think. A few yrs back he posted that he was in BKK for treatment and spent $millions of baht. I thought maybe he was cured for all the money he said he spent. After that he had a gig in Pattaya and then went up north to run a guesthouse & restaurant. He was active in another forum in Pattaya and had the same username. I forgot the the name of the forum. But they are probably posting things about him now. He used to often post that life was good. It's good to know that life had been good to him.
  14. Times are changing. Today, there are 10x more Chinese visiting LOS than Americans. 3,000 Baht ST seems high by international standards. Should be more like 1,500 Baht. Punters will stop coming.
  15. I had a nightmare last night involving Trump. We were hanging out together and wheeling and dealing in real estate
