Re: American Royal leaders propose tearing down Kemper

Cities are looking to turn plenty of private buildings into temporary hospitals or wards.

New York is looking at turning MSG and NYU dorms into hospitals, both are privately owned. They are also looking at converting hotels into hospitals if needed.

Re: COVID19

Is surprising that Florida (I'm back here now), with the huge retired population there hasn't been an elderly outbreak or high deaths like Seattle. They seem to be doing a decent job protecting those at risk and senior centers (so far, could break out any time). But central FL doesn't have much den...

Re: COVID19

And im not trying to be an alarmist. Most people will be fine. But its hard to imagine how we will react if something similar happens in part of the US. And we can prevent that from happening in most places.

Re: COVID19

I think its important to note that region of Lombardy has accounted for most of those deaths. Both overall and the past day. (319 out of the 475 this past day). You can compare the total number of deaths to the whole population of Italy, but that is misleading. You should consider that most of the d...

Re: COVID19

One stat I'd like to see especially in Italy is how many tests per day and % of positive results. And if the tests are general population or only those with conditions. At some point, if there is a high % of positive results relative to those tested, you may as well stop the lockdown, focus on thos...

Re: COVID19

JoCo is acknowledging they have community spread . Their response is to shift testing away from JoCo to focus on other parts of the state because they will run out of tests otherwise. They are essentially surrendering and telling everyone to hunker down until they get Federal testing resources to is...

Re: COVID19

If the result of this is that we realize how devastating our routine, daily impact is on the environment, then that will be a positive. I doubt that will be the lesson learned.

First two confirmed cases in KCMO. 30-year old male and 40-year old female. There is no connection in how they were exposed.

Re: COVID19

Did St Louis shut down before KC and others? Saw a chart on TV whereby it's rate flattened considerably vs other cities. Its possible you saw a chart of St Louis’ response to the 1918 flu. It is a case study in how early response flattens the curve. https://qz.com/1816060/a-chart-of-the-1918-spanis...

Re: Politics

Apparently Mitch McConnell is asking veteran judges appointed by Republicans to retire so they can be replaced before next cycle. I'd say they are expecting to lose.
