Re: Coronavirus

Are there any websites that provide stats on the number of people who have subsequently been tested
negative after being tested positive for Covid-19 ( and therefore recovered from their bout of Covid-19 )

In fact are there any websites that are analysing recovery rates versus infection rates per country,
per city or per region with graphs and stats ?

Also the same stats on the number of people who have been discharged from
Hospital after recovering from being admiitted to Hospital with Covid 19.

Are there any websites that collect stats, facts & figures on the number
of people who have been diagnosed and are suffering from Long Covid
together with any anecdotal evidence of Long Covid suffrers who have
made a full recovery from Long Covid.

Basically any recommendations on websites that have easy to browse stats on infection rates
versus recovery rates, side by side alongside each other including graphs.

Re: Coronavirus

Argentina has had the world's longest lockdown, almost over 200 consecutive days of lockdown, yet new cases are rising every day.

Almost 200 days into lockdown, Argentinians are suffering more than anyone else from COVID-19. According to its 7 day rolling average, Argentina now has the highest newly confirmed COVID-19 death rate on earth.

Actually, what that graph shows is that in July, when Argentina's lockdown restrictions were eased and shops and churches, etc. were allowed to open, the numbers began to dramatically rise, and that's why they went back into lockdown and began to tighten up restrictions again.

This article is dated July 17th.

Lockdown of Buenos Aires scheduled to end today

https://www.foreignbrief.com/daily-n...-to-end-today/

"The Argentinian government will today begin to ease lockdown measures in and around Buenos Aires, which has been the epicentre of the domestic COVID-19 outbreak."

Did you look at https://www.longcovid.org/ it has some information and links to other sites.

Finally, on 17 July, the lockdown was due to be gradually loosened in several stages to lead to the return to normality, although restrictions were extended several times until 11 October.

Re: Coronavirus

Only three US states are reporting a decline in new Covid-19 cases compared to last week.

As of Saturday night, new cases were down in Texas, Missouri and South Carolina, while 21 states reported a rise in cases and a little more than half held steady compared with the week before.

Latest US data including Oct. 3

Actually, I guess it was in June (not July) when 20,000 shops were allowed to re-open. And then when the numbers begin to dramatically rise afterward, they went back into lockdown.

I suspect he is hoping some older members of staff will resign, then he does not have to sack anyone. Makes huge sense to him as he does not want to come over as nasty.

From what I gather most of them are younger so I don't know if that is the reason.

If younger people work there, they are at very little risk, so perfectly reasonable to have them back at work in offices being paid for by the company. They are probably looking to loose a few staff, a few will be complicated people so will probably oblige.

Re: Coronavirus

It doesn't really make sense to me to think of younger people potentially catching the virus as not posing any risks or not being a big deal. For one thing, it is not only elderly people who are becoming very ill from COVID, but also, younger people can easily pass the virus on to older people such as their parents, neighbors, or hell, just someone at the grocery store for that matter.

Some people seem to think that more and more people getting COVID is no big deal, but if they really do have concerns about lockdowns and the economy, you'd think they'd express more concern about the number of people who get the virus.

Sorry, I just can't understand why some people are so apathetic about it.

I find it odd because my employer realized a lot of money could be saved in rent by making home office permanent. Soon, only half of the employees will have fixed offices while the other half will have hot desks and home office. With or without virus some changes will stay

Keep in mind that Mondays will look like a spike, as the BAG no longer reports on Sat/Sun. But I agree, this thing is out there and it's not going to magically disappear any time soon.
