Back to viruses other than social media:
Anyone have ideas on what is going on with Germany? Their death rate, 0.15% and serious cases rate, close to 0%, is even lower than Sth Korea (0.81% CFR and 1% serious) who have really been on top of things.
Outstanding German efficiency? Miracle cure? I know they have the highest number of ICU beds in Europe, but somehow their patients aren't even requiring it.
A global thread for opinions, insights and general expatery - related to covid-19..
On the phone to a buddy in london last night. He has work partners who are Italian and has elderly parents in northern italy who are absolutely terrified...apparently they dont have enough respirator machines in hospitals so they've stopped using them for people over 60 as the chance of recovery is very low.
This stuff makes me sad.
Look what happened when it hit a nursing home in the US...28 dead or so and most of the staff infected. People in my mother's retirement community are scared and they have individual apartments...
