    ^ Exactly. Every research and study will show a stats that HCL fails. That will be advertised and published in various media outlets. But will you listen to those or doctors who are successfully treating people with HCL. You can listen to misinformation or do listen to medical advise.
     
    PS: Doctors are giving HCL as precautionary to Dharawi residents. I just hope Indian media doesn’t jumps into this anti Trump misinformation campaign which is solely down to upcoming US elections.

    Most people are mentally hit. But around here in Virginia there are plenty of people going about life as normal. 
     
    But I agree. Simply "opening things up" isn't magically going to restore the economy.  People are not going to be flooding into restaurants, bars, sports events, etc just because the government has opened things up.

    Not so soon, I don't know about Europe but people in US are mentally hit by this pandemic. Things won't go back to normal any soon.

    15,000 people in New York City are already dead from the virus. If your estimate of 0.035% fatality rate is accurate, this would mean that more than 300% of New York City residents have been infected. This of course is mathematically impossible.
    We know that New York City has a population of  8.4 million and we know that 15,000 New York City residents are already dead form this. This  means that 0.18% of New York City is already dead. If you assume that not 100% of New York CIty residents are infected, the case fatality rate becomes higher than 0.18%.

    I had created a thread about him once.
    He was truly a once in a millennium kind of singer. Amazing composer, and he possessed one of the best vocal ranges known. Easily one of the best singers from the Sub-continent. Truly a pioneer of world music in the 80s and 90s. He had died way too early,(at the age of 48), had he lived till now, he could've achieved so much more. He was also one of the most like able pakistani's. From reports and accounts of people who knew him, he was very humble and down to earth, donating his earnings to the public and charity etc.
     
    His best songs are:
    Sanu ik pal chain na aave
    Yeh Jo halka halka suroor
    Akhiyan Udeek Diyan
    Allah Hoo
    Tum ek gorakh danda
    Tere bin nahi lagda
    Afreen Afreen
    Nit Khair Manga
    Sanson ki mala pe
    Man ki lagan(though he never got a chance to sing it)

    I think I have seen that one buddy.. the one with a lady. Not something I disagree with, the point of early onset of co-morbidities, but yet 75% of people dying are over 60 in India(Google)....
     
    You may say but its 85% in newyork? But that is because Indians over age 60 are 10% (just 8.6% as per 2011 census)  of population and New Yorkers over age 60 could be 20% of the population.
     
    I am thinking what are the people going to think exactly 20 days from now(lol) when I think covid-19 will vanish from the headlines because I believe by then USA and Europe would have lifted their lockdown and gone back to work and probably seeing them India would have opened up also.

    Get hold of the interview by Dr Gangakhedkar from ICMR on news18. Some journalist raised these same set of points and asked if the lock down is an overkill, especially as we are a relatively young population.
    His answer was that, in urban India, due to an exceedingly sedentary lifestyle, the onset of co-morbidities has shifted by nearly 8 years since they started tracking this data, sometime in the 70s. Example (his), there is a fair prevalence of diabetics in their mid to late 30s in these cities. 50 years ago, a diabetes before 45 would be unheard of. This is just one type of co-morbidity.
    He is of the opinion that the urban hot spots have to be locked down, maybe so for an even longer period of time.
    Furthermore, he said that it would take India a longer time to develop any kind of herd immunity, More so than a UK. Simply because we are that much more diverse genetically and in food habits. I didn't quite understand the specific scientific logic here. 
    Let me try and link you with that interview if I find it on youtube.

    Problem with testing is that you can be testing negative today and catch it tomorrow from some random person ,surface the next day. 
    The solution is gently getting herd immunity ( hoping the bcg vaccine and the temperature rise makes it easier) or a mass produced vaccine .

    A much better comparison would be our neighbour Pakistan due to the similar climate and similar people. We should be  keeping an eye on covid19 situation over there. If they are able to do well without lock down, then we should be ok too.

    Yes. High containment zones or hotspots are anyway major economic districts. So effectively no relief for our economy.

    What is the plan exactly exactly after May 3rd (assuming no changes to current plans)?

    Is it that after May 3rd we will allow those districts where there are very few cases to resume normal operation? And districts where cases are high will remain under lockdown?

    Can anyone elaborate what is the purpose of this lockdown?
    If it is to stop further spreading of disease with social distancing norms  eing followed then we need to ensure a very aggressive testing strategy and make sure not a single corona patient is left out. Is it possible? Obviously no because there are asymptomatic patients too. So once lockdown is lifted it can still start spreading afresh. Remember it must have started with one person in some corner of the world. Or we need to have a very very long lockdown period which again is not possible. Numbers are just increasing not as exponential as in other countries but then we aren't testing enough.

    And Swedes are the most socially distant people on the planet even in the best of times. 47% of Swedish households have just one occupant. Sweden is really the loner capital of the world.

    And have restrictions/guidelines only for over-60 or people with compromised immunity?
    There is a line of thought that herd immunity is the only solution.

    Good post!! Since it's hot now, Do we need a lockdown looking at hospitalization rate in other warm countries/regions?

    randomGuy reacted to beetle in Should the government end lockdown?   
    Social distancing is to make sure the infection is staggered over a period of time and the entire population does not get infected at the same time and the hospitals can manage the 10 % people who need to be hospitalized .
     
    Govt has already made quite a few hospitals ready including military hospitals. Protective equipment is being made available . The lockdown was to slow down infection rate and and hopefully be better prepared for the future infections.

    But can't forcibly keep people locked in homes while they watch their jobs ,businesses go bust.
    There is no choice.
    Lockdown has given the govt time to plan for it. Get hospitals ready and let people out with social distancing guidelines being followed.
     
     
    The govt should first let only people going to work out with passes . No need for the rest of the dependents to go out of homes. Slowly let normalcy come back in whatever form is possible.

    It can't go on forever.
    Need to think about economy too.
    People need to go to work.
    In the end everyone will get exposed and it will be like flu....it kills too but most people have a terrible 1-2 weeks are recover.
