    Now Dewine shouldn't have to fact check his advisers, but that's an unbelievably ignorant mistake for a Gov and his staff to make.  If you knew any facts, at all, about this then "100k" didn't come close to passing the smell test. 

    I posted a picture on a thread that illustrates this exactly.  With I might add a subtle but accurate comment.

    There have been 135k cases reported GLOBALLY.  Do you really think little 'ol Ohio has 100k cases, more than Wuhan (which has a similar population, but much more dense)?

    And why would Ohio be special when there are several "hotspots" in the US already?  That would mean we'd be looking at several million infected already in the US in a few days.

    I say he has no fucking clue and is irresponsibly trying to alarm people.  It's a guess, and by every objective measure looks like a really, really bad one.  And it could double every 6 days - well, ok, where's the 50,000 current cases in Ohio?  Where are the related 5000+ hospitalizations and hundreds of deaths?

    Not gonna lie, when I read his transcript earlier I read it 1,000. Not 10,000 or 100,000 lol. Yeah, that number is a bit ridiculous at this point.

    I’m with gut. I just don’t see it being as big of deal. I hope I’m not wrong and the hospitals arent overflowing a week from now. I know the signs and symptoms can take up to 14 days, but the timer didn’t start on Wednesday when all the schools and sports closed/canceled. This has been around for more than a couple days. Guess we’ll find out soon enough. 
     

    the annoying part is how far out things are being canceled. I saw a clip on Twitter today of a high school track team who had their season canceled so they were letting seniors do their last high jump practice or whatever. Track goes til the beginning of June and we’re already canceling it?? What’s the harm in giving it like three weeks and see where we’re at?

    Restaurants,  movie theaters, bars, etc will be the next to go. 

    They probably should be already.

    If they decide to shut that stuff down, they should consider allowing restaurants to keep some of a working staff and still serve doordash, Grubhub, etc orders. But have the restaurants closed to the public otherwise.

    Illinois is about a day away from bars and restaurants being closed because of idiots partying yesterday for St Pats.

    And the way ORD was last night, I wouldn’t be shocked if Pritzger shuts down the airports.

    Spring sports are just on hold.  Nothing in regards to shutting them down.

    Gov DeWine has ordered all bars and restaurants to close at 9PM tonight and does not say/know how long the order will stand.

    Was at a local establishyment last night.

    945 it was still open and some j/o called 911 so the cops had to show up. They didnt shut it down, and the officer on duty said his shift ended at midnight and he would stop it for a drink if it was still open!

     

     

    We left shortly thereafter because, well, work today!

    Had an email forwarded to me from the CBS President. Basically telling all CBS employees to prepare for a full 2 week nationwide shutdown starting this week. What that entails I don’t know, but likely no flights, state borders closed at all major crossings, all businesses shutdown except grocery and maybe gas (and restaurants delivery), etc.

    Fearmongering at it's finest, probably because people would just ignore it otherwise.  Trying to get the effect of a quarantine without actually doing it (and all the problems associated with it).  I guess the hope is a panic caused from such irresponsibility will save more people than it kills.

    - Italy has been having all kinds of problems with coronavirus for over a month.  With a population of 60M, it has 12,462 cases as of yesterday.  Ohio has a population of about 12M.

    - The hospitalization rate for serious cases is @ 15-20%.  This would mean about 15k people in Ohio would be or would have been hospitalized for coronavirus.

    - The mortality rate is @ 3-4%...so with 100k cases that would mean at least a few thousand deaths already in Ohio, versus.....4?

     

    Now maybe he means there are a bunch of asymptomatic people that will never even be tested.  That could easily be several hundred people, but 100k?!? 

     

     

     

    Italy’s problem is more severe because A) – they have enormous tourism coming from China; B) – they did nothing about restricting that travel from China (until too late, at least); C) – their average age is nearly ten years older than the average age of the population in the US; D) – open borders with all of Europe.

    Hunch, or you've heard specifics?

    All in person voting is stopped. Extending the date to June 2. But it’s not technically official.

    Was Ohio one of the first states to start canceling school and closing down restaurants and everything else? Are there other states not treating this as aggressively?
