This is why we're trying to isolate ourselves, and why I bought an O2 concentrator: the hospitals here may just be unable to handle everyone who's sick. If either of us needs a ventilator...well, we hope that we won't.

Video works for me, but YouTube was apparently down earlier today. Have you tried clearing your cache?

I watched this earlier today and found it was decent. You can think of his as a South Korean version of Dr. Fauci.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAk7aX5hksU

This professor been involved with infection diseases for about 30 years. He seems like a very humble man. Unfortunately, it's all in Korean but has English subtitles. So, unless you understand Korean, you'll have to watch and read the subtitles.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel gave a good speech at https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2020/03 ... trump.html (article title "The Leader of the Free World Gives a Speech, and She Nails It"). The video there has the same caveats except it's in German, of course. After watching that, I learned of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vT8e7lkjl8.
Official translation of German Chancellor Angela Merkel recorded in English language, with subtitles. The translation is official. The voice recording of the translation is not official but created with intent to reproduce emphasis.
I watched https://www.cbsnews.com/news/new-york-c ... 020-03-29/ (description below) on 60 Minutes earlier tonight. It's not behind a paywall yet, but I'd imagine that once it is, you should be able to see it with CBS All Access.
"Beyond anything I've seen in my career": Doctors on the front lines describe surge in coronavirus patients

Scott Pelley reports from hospitals in New York City, the new epicenter for COVID-19. Doctors describe how some patients with the disease can deteriorate suddenly and require lifesaving intensive care.
The video is about 13.5 minutes long.

Not sure if folks had seen Lt. Gen Semonite of the Army Corps of Engineers talking. Someone else posted it on social media and those who commented were impressed, as was I. He's also in the 60 Minutes piece. https://twitter.com/USArmy/status/1241440439380488194 is a short clip.

This is a bizarre pandemic, in that we seem to see too few deaths to frighten people - right up until they surge and it's often too late to finally start taking it seriously. So far, in Upstate NY we have had something like six deaths, with all or almost all of them being elderly people or middle-aged people with serious health issues. You'd be hard pressed to better design a pandemic to spread in this stealth mode. That and of course the amazing lack of widespread testing in the US have given us a health crisis akin to slowly, very slowly, being boiled alive.

True. I think the very mild symptoms in some are resulting in a much wider spread of the disease than we know. The apparent high death rate "could" be as a low the flu as it would appear in most areas (at least in mine) many with the virus are not being tested. They are simply advised to self isolate at home and ride it out. I know two people who have been sick 3 weeks now. Another who was sick for almost two weeks then went to Emergency and was immediately admitted. I have lost contact with him so pretty sure he still isn't home yet.

But our infected count stands at 36. The numbers only change twice a week so we shall see where its at on the next change which should happen today or tomorrow but neither of the two at home are on the infected list and the 3rd likely wasn't until he hit the hospital.

The asymptomatic rate is crazy. One the one Princess cruise ship, 40% of the people who tested positive were asymptomatic. In a more controlled scientific study the rate was more like 20%. But even the lower figure seems extraordinarily high to me.

I watched the Contagion movie for the second time last night, the first time being when it came out in 2011. It scared the living bejeesus out of me, just as much as it did the first time round. Maybe even more. It should probably be required viewing for everyone right now. Available on Amazon Prime for, I think, $3.99 in SD. But also available for free with a Cinemax 7-day trial. Or, I guess, if you already have a Cinemax subscription on whatever devices you have.
