I feel for you, Pappy. I'm in the hardest hit county in Maryland, which contains a lot of suburban DC, and we only have a little over 1000 cases so far. We have a long way to go before we hit our apex, though.

Maryland overall, as a state, today reporting:
4,371 cases
103 deaths

But it seems we're not testing very many people....

Our governor, Larry Hogan, is a Republican, but bless his heart, he implemented social distancing early and locked down the state the third week of March.

By the way, we actually live in two states, because we inherited an ancient farmhouse on a tiny nature reserve (former dairy farm) in the ridge-and-valley section of south-central Pennsylvania. It's a 3-hour drive from our house in Maryland. Normally we go up there for about half the the time from early spring through late fall, just avoiding the deep snows of winter in the mountains. It's not a vacation home: my husband is a tree biologist who works hard to maintain the reserve, and I'm an artist with a studio up there.

We were all set to go up there, had even started packing, when the Maryland governor issued the lockdown, including "no non-essential out-of-state travel."

So we are following the rules—staying put in an urban hot spot, rather than "fleeing" to a rural area.

Manitoba, Canada: Just 201 cases; 2 dead. I figure that is pretty good considering that we have nearly 1.3 millions folks here in this province. The media is trying to scare us "s...less" but I reckon that we are pretty safe. Glad I don't live in some huge Mega city like LA or NY

My son lived in Columbia, MD for several years. He has been with the NSA since getting out of school. He is now in Omaha, NB.

Australia is ironically referred to as 'the lucky country'. The phrase was coined by author Donald Horne. He wrote - "Australia is a lucky country run mainly by second rate people who share its luck. It lives on other people's ideas, and, although its ordinary people are adaptable, most of its leaders (in all fields) so lack curiosity about the events that surround them that they are often taken by surprise."

When it comes to coronavirus it seems our luck is holding.

These are the stats for all of Australia as of the afternoon of Thurs 9th April.

As of Thursday afternoon Mr Hunt (Federal Minister for Health) said there were:
  • 6,068 Australians with the virus
  • 51 deaths
  • Approximately 260 people in hospital
  • 82 in intensive care units
  • 35 on ventilators
The numbers would have been a lot less if there had not been a complete stuff up when a passengers from the Ruby Princess were discharged into the community without even the most rudimentary screening. They were told to go home and self isolate for 14 days but many took themselves to the beach. There is now a criminal investigation taking place to find out how this blunder was allowed to happen and who was responsible. Talk about second rate leadership but even so, with most people co-operating with stay at home orders and practising social distancing, the total numbers are still manageable and our hospitals are not overwhelmed. The curve is starting to flatten nicely.
