Coronavirus In Ohio and Us

Ohio has now had 3 deaths due to the virus. The first death in my county has occurred, a 91 year old man. And we have a total of 3 deaths now-all elderly. There are about 96 confirmed cases in my county-Cuyahoga. There are 247 confirmed cases statewide.

The governor is stressing the urgency of doing what is right and what is advised. People, listen to him! I am hoping so hard and even praying (I am not a person who regularly prays either-not to be anti prayer or anything but I don't) that this will all go away somehow!

I now stay in my apartment, avoid everyone here as much as possible, and fear for the virus for myself and my pet family. I feel like a sitting duck about now. I know I need to plan for the best and really am trying to do that but some days you just feel like...what's the use with how people are so careless with their coughing everywhere and many don't even know they have it when they go places and spread it.

I guess I'm looking for some positive feedback, goodwill and support for my efforts. But I know I can't have everything.

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The latest update from the Ohio Department of Health on Saturday showed 247 confirmed coronavirus cases statewide and three confirmed deaths from the virus.

[ Erie County sees first COVID-19 death; 169 infections reported so far in Ohio ]
Those figures and the potential for community spread prompted Gov. Mike DeWine to enforce several swift measures, including a move to close all Ohio schools for at least three weeks, place a ban on all mass gatherings of more than 50 people, and shut down all bars and restaurants.

The virus is now getting close to us down here in south eastern Ohio. Gallia county now has 1 case. I'm reasonably healthy, but by SO not so much. I will make a run today for a few essentials, and then I guess it is time to totally stay home.

The level of US testing is abysmal. Embarrassingly, ridiculously low. Lots of promises from the feds about how many test kits will be made available, but so far our federal government has come up infuriatingly short while boasting of "the greatest medical care in the world."

Our doctors, nurses and epidemiologists are giving the straight scoop about it being next to impossible for them to test suspected cases. Americans truly have no idea how widespread this virus is in our country.

You're doing things right, Ruthanne. Just stay away from people. Quarantine is tough, but it's going to work.

It really hits home when you see the deaths starting in your state doesn't it.

When you watch these "Updates" & news conferences, note the distance between the president, the mayor & whatever doctors are present. They're 1-2 inches apart. So are the reporters asking the questions, while sitting next to each other.
Oh....wait, I just remembered something. Politicians always tell us to do as they say; not as they do.

We had a "drought" in California a few years ago. The mayor at that time was Antonio Villaraiagosa (a real piece of work). He gave several speeches about how "we all must do our part to conserve water." A reporter filmed his back yard with a whole bunch of sprinklers on at 2:00am. They were on all night. The mayor's office threw a fit - NOT because of wasting water, but because someone filmed it & played it on the news.
B.S. is the same wherever we are. That's the exact same speech the mayor here in L.A. gave yesterday. They must e-mail these speeches to each other.

Deaths in Ohio has risen to 10 so far. Half of those hospitalized are in ICU. There are more women than men who have gotten it but not by much. Over 700 cases confirmed in Ohio.

Thanks Marlene. My county has 206 I see.
 
My state is on lockdown and the county I live in has several cases. It looks like we are in this for the long haul. It is all very stressful and frustrating and scary. I have to do my sister's shopping, too because she is disabled and has no transportation. Right now I can't find any distilled water anywhere, and she needs it for her bi-pap machine. If she can't use that machine, she could die in her sleep.
