    Police in the Philippines have shot dead a man for not wearing a mask and provoking officers. President Duterte has ordered police and military to kill anyone violating quarantine or causing trouble during the pandemic.

    A 63-year-old man has been shot dead by police in the Philippines after he became enraged for being told to wear a facemask, marking the first reported case of authorities shooting a civilian for breaching coronavirus restrictions.

    The man was believed to have been drunk when he threatened village authorities with a scythe – a sharp blade – in the southern town of Nasipit in Agusan del Norte province, police said on Saturday.

    "The suspect was cautioned by a village health worker ... for not wearing a face mask," the police report said. "But the suspect got angry, uttering provoking words and eventually attacked the personnel using a scythe."

    Australia’s farmers are turning to billboards to try and calm residents as grocery stores continue to see waves of panic buying by shoppers worried about food supplies.

    The National Farmers Federation is aiming to reach commuters directly in Melbourne with advertisements that read “Don’t panic. We’re experts at working from home.”

    Consumers have stripped grocery store shelves of essentials including meat and flour as the government gradually ratchets up restrictions to combat the spread of the coronavirus. That’s despite repeated assurances from officials that there’s an abundant supply of food, with Australia producing enough for 75 million people amid a population of 25 million.

    I feel like the virus is going to let up soon,, soon it will be time to see what we are in for as far as our economy is concerned, I don’t think the answers we get are going to be good at all, there will be a very high cost passed down to the American people , I have a feeling many will have wished the country stayed open when they have to feel the wrath of here again, something that no one alive has had to live through

    all this in perhaps in a 2 month time period happening is so wicked fast.

    it will take 10 years to get the economy back that we have lost.

    a more balanced structure of shut down should have been taken IMO , for instance, shut down pro sports ,, shut down concerts and large events were an abundance of people gather rather closely , daily businesses should have stayed open and running.

    I hope and pray it will let up soon but I'm afraid it is just getting started. New hot spots will pop up as others fade away in America and around the world. Rural areas will be hit but not as hard as metros. I have not looked at the phylogeny tree in a couple of days, but there are likely one or two more significant mutations. I will try to post the tree later.

    From the link @Mister Funsky posted:

    https://covid19.healthdata.org/projections

    That says it is getting better, not "just getting started". Peak daily deaths is supposed to be 10 days from now, then projected to go down.

    The total deaths by August 4th is projected to be 81,766, couple of days ago it was over 90,000. So that is getting better as well.

    So the projections are getting better, we'll see if those projections actually hold.

    We are going to be 88 degrees tomorrow and 93 degrees wed, if that doesn’t kill it off here, then it is probably going to linger, the virus may linger for a while, or it may disappear, either way, if we do not get America back up and running , I don’t think it is going to matter how long the virus stays, the only difference, people will no longer have a home to live in or car to drive

    America needs to go back to work now IMO, yes the virus is bad and all that goes with it,, just as in any pandemic lives will be lost, the Spanish flu and ect, but shutting down most of the USA has severed the country IMO , of course shutting down New York City needed to happen, New Orleans as well, but most other states could have stayed open IMO , the price that the American citizens are getting ready to pay is going to be a catastrophe, I think you and I agreed on this projection when the virus first began @JB Lions

    I think this month is chill out month and see if it levels off and then maybe start to go down as projected. Then slowly opening back up the following months. But, I think it's a good sign the projected deaths are going down, could change, but right now getting better.

    @JB Lions , what would you project the economic out come of waiting to reopen the country in say another month or two??

    I am thinking we are at very deep recession right now today, full depression if we wait another month, I may be wrong, but that is what I am seeing with the amount of unemployment claims filed.

    Who knows, not good, but then again when we open up again, some of those people that were laid off will be rehired. People will want to go out, travel again, eat at restaurants again, etc. Business will slowly pick back up. I heard some people say 30% Unemployment, which is crazy to me, last recession in 2008 it got up to 9.9%. Maybe 10% - 15% range this time. But again, nobody really knows. This month is supposed to be the worst month, and if people start seeing it level off and go back down, that will give people some hope.

    I agree, I saw the 30% unemployment projection as well,, I think at the highest would be 20%, I am thinking around 15% to start out, lowering to around 10 to 12% within a years time, the problem I see isn’t only unemployment, but a lot of people having to take possibly substantial pay cuts to keep their job. The question is, will the rent and pricing of goods go down to meet the needs of the wages earned.

    Due to the much lower number of drivers on the road, Allstate and American Family Insurance will be refunding about 15% of premiums paid by its customers in April and May. Gas prices are down, and I'm guessing businesses will offer lots of incentives to get people spending again.

    The results of this, if done properly, should be interesting.

    US begins blood tests for coronavirus immunity, say reports

    Why Some COVID-19 Patients Crash: The Body's Immune System Might Be To Blame

    A recent study by Bhatraju and others found that the patients' lungs appeared to deteriorate quickly. The crash typically happens seven days into the disease and can occur in young, otherwise healthy victims of COVID-19.
