Okay, folks, hid a political post. Let's not get political. I know it's difficult, but please abide by the rules.

Part of taking care of my own well-being is not to over-focus, especially on morbid death counts. We know things are currently bad. They will eventually improve. Knitting by the guillotine is not great self-care.

Here I’ll look at the news at breakfast time and then just get on with my day.

That’s a highly recommended strategy for healthily maintaining optimism and mood. smiley

I believe banjo playing is a good antidote to bad news.

Definitely not a statistic to be proud of, but on the other hand, it was to be expected to some degree.  We're a big country with open travel and we don't hide our numbers.  Obviously, we didn't take it seriously enough at first, and to a large degree we're still not taking it seriously.  This has already killed twice the number of Americans than we lost on 9/11/01.  That's a sobering statistic.

But, on the other hand, so far our mortality rate is much lower than some other countries.  I just hope that we can catch up on PPE, ventilators, medicines, and other necessary tools to prevent the kind of mortality rate that we're seeing in Italy and Spain.  We're currently at around a 2.5% mortality rate where they're at 10% or higher.

The problem is that these figures have little meaning. The number of cases is very dependant on the numbers of tests. And also who is tested, how and when they are tested and how the results are gathered. I've seen a scientific report that says the basis of the Italian figure is not clear. For the USA the problem is variation in how states gather and report data. My guess is that we will never know the true number of cases and people will be arguing about death rates for decades.

What are you talking about?

None of my security software gave me a malware warning about the Johns Hopkins site.

Obviously, whatever you were using did give you a warning.

I would be surprised if Johns Hopkins University would be using malware on their site.

After all, they are one of the most respected medical sites in the world.

There is no malware.

Besides VirusTotal.com, another site check tool is Sucuri.net

Cool  smiley  This will come up handy.

BTW: if you do an image search on Johns Hopkins  you will see malware references.

No clue what your frame of reference is, and I'm not going to waste any more time on "malware and Johns Hopkins".

Again...the link posted, and their site, is clean.
