The WHO Covid19 tracker chart (if you cannot link to it directly type into your search engine Google docs spreadsheet covid19 WHO)
March 19 2020

The following chart that you can link to is updated every day from WHO data, and it is pretty scary when you look at it closely, click here.

On March 18, 2020 the increase in Covid19 confirmations by lab test is 9%, which is not as bad as a doubling, which would be 100%, nor as good as 0%, which would mean it is no longer a threat.

Are the current increases because only in the last day or two has our idiot potUS45 decided to believe the vast number of well-informed health professionals who are employed by federal health agencies, and idiots who believe only Fox news have suddenly got religion and had themselves tested? I do not know. We all want the rate to decrease.

I have confined myself to my house and garden since March 8th, only leaving to walk and bicycle through a forest and around lakes to empty food shops, where I have observed employees vigorously scrubbing surfaces.
Avoid infection

Advice from which is good: Clean your hands often

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Avoid close contact

Upper left: I planted parts of tomatoes in October, and by March 10th they were good-looking plants.
Lower left, I bought rutabagas at Reading Terminal Market in February, forgot one and saw it was sprouting, so I placed it on top of potting soil and now I have fully edible salad greens.
Above: dandelion greens that came along with the avocado trees I bring inside in October.
Below, onions I forgot in my vegetable bin, happily growing spring onions.
If you are infected
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were set up by the federal government to stop us all dying from mosquito-borne diseases. They continue to be the federal institution that adds and analyzes all the data about what illnesses are appearing and continuing, and who is dying, when and from what. I love the CDC. Absolutely. But they appear to have caught the same wrong data virus that has infected the entire federal government since January 20, 2017. occasionally posts nonsense, the first part is sensible, but the second part is nonsense and I have crossed it out.

Wear a facemask if you are sick

  • If you are sick: You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room. Learn what to do if you are sick.

  • If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.
