SCS employee among 70 people quarantined across the Mid-South over coronavirus concerns (Memphis TN)
Fox-13 Memphis ^

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — An employee with Shelby County Schools had contact with someone who tested positive for the novel coronavirus, according to a statement issued today by SCS.

The employee worked at Treadwell Elementary School and Treadwell Middle School.

An official said the employee has been placed on a 14-day quarantine and has not displayed any symptoms of the illness.

Annie Jones was extra cautious when she went to Treadwell Middle School to pick up her nephew Monday.

Like other parents, she learned about the quarantined employee through an early morning phone call.

“They ain’t giving us no up to date about what’s going on,” said Jones. “We don’t know.”

The Shelby County Health Department said the immediate risk to the general public is low, and there is no expected risk to school-age children at this time.

In a joint press conference, both Shelby County School superintendent Joris Ray and Shelby County Health Department Director Alisa Haushalter both reiterated safety of the children is the top priority.

Remember when quarantine meant you were prejudice.

Right. Schumer deleted that tweet. Was a good call by Trump.

Not sure why Italy and South Koreans can still fly here. Nobody measured for temp at the airport or quarantined.

Love the ‘bag lady’ though. She’s insta-famous like the Obamaphone lady.

THAT was hysterical! That woman, wrapped in trash bags and plastic...I had tears I was laughing so hard. What a loon!

“They ain’t giving us no up to date about what’s going on,” said Jones. “We don’t know.” All the while spouting horrific grammar wrapped in trash bags. She votes, we’re doomed.

If you would like on or off a ping list for these reports, let me know. Thanks.

COVID-19 Update As of 03/09/2020 23:53 PST

These numbers include Mainland China and All Others globally

This format allows you to see trends. I'll continue to use it.

        Declared Cases
        .         Declared Deceased
        .         .       Declared Recovered
        .         .       .        Declared Resolved
Date    .         .       .        .        Cases Remining Active
03/03    93,160   3,198   50,690   53,888   39,272
03/04    95,425   3,286   53,399   56,685   38,740
03/05    98,387   3,383   55,441   58,824   39,563 
03/06   102,188   3,491   57,389   60,880   41,308
03/07   106,165   3,977   59,965   63,559   42,606
03/08   110,041   3,825   62,000   65,825   44,216
03/09   114,452   4,026   64,169   68,195   46,257
It's not that easy to spot the changes in daily growth.
Here they are:

03/03:  2,223
03/04:  2,265
03/05:  2,962
03/06:  3,801
03/07:  3,977
03/08:  3,876
03/09:  4,411
That's a rather pronounced growth rate. These are just the declared cases
but still...

The last column there shows the numbers of active cases. You will note how
they were dropping, then started increasing again. Here are the last five days
drop & then growth numbers.

03/03:   -494 
03/04:   -532 
03/05:    823 
03/06:  1,745 
03/07:  1,298
03/08:  1,610
03/09:  2,041
Resolved cases are still helping to soften the massive numbers of new cases
declared each day. That doesn't nullify the fact that active cases are
climbing and will break the old peak in less than a week.

We have hot spots around the world, and instead of one or two of them, we now
have upwards of seven far above, or moving above the 1,000 case level in the
next day or two.

It has been my take that once you go above a few hundred you were close to out
of control. Some nations seem to have found a way to stop the growth, but you
have to wonder if they actually did, or are holding back on reporting.

I will touch on break out nations again lower in this report.

As predicted, the mortality rate that went as low as 5.65% on the 27th, has now
begun to climb again. As of 03/09 it is running at 5.90%. It grew 0.09% on
the 9th, and 0.16% on the day before that.

We are still running a very large report of new cases per day. So far new cases
present new deaths, and a track toward recovery for most folks. Unfortunately
when it comes to the mortality rate, the deaths are report first, by weeks.

COVID-19 cases outside China now make up 61.72% of global active cases.
That means there are still 38.28% of active cases in Mainland China. Of
course we don't know how truthful that is, because we have never been
convinced that China has been reporting out valid numbers. As stats come
in from case results outside China it will become more clear how accurate
China's reporting has been.

Some folks ask why I bother to report out Mainland China numbers. I do so
because it's all we have. We all know the reporting issues. I put this out
there and I think others can determine for themselves how much credence to
to attribute to them.

The numbers and percentages of resolved cases has continued to hold up pretty
well. On 03/07 at 18:03 PST the percentage peaked at 59.918% of all documented
cases having been resolved. As of the EOD 03/09, that percentage remained at
59.584%. That's actually pretty good considering the volume of new cases that
are now being reported.

These numbers address the cases outside of Mainland China.

I will provide the same format for the numbers outside Mainland China.

        Declared Cases
        .        Declared Deceased
        .        .     Declared Recovered
        .        .     .       Declared Resolved
Date    .        .     .       .       Cases Remaining Active
03/03   12,890   217     837   1,054   11,836
03/04   15,015   279   1,222   1,501   13,514
03/05   17,832   341   1,685   2,026   15,806 
03/06   21,537   421   1,986   2,407   19,130
03/07   25,470   497   2,871   3,368   22,102
03/08   29,285   706   3,389   4,095   25,190
03/09   33,696   890   4,258   5,148   28,548
Lets talk about the United States again. I addressed the issue of the
U. S. catching fire several days ago. There was reason for concern, because two
back to back days saw 46.54 & 45.06 growth. It had dropped to 28.11% & 27.94%.
Then on 03/09 it was back up to a 36.10% increase.

In the United States we now stand at 754 cases. Another day above 33.00%, and
we'll be at 1,000 cases and growing. Of course the U.S. is one of the larger
nations. We have a potential for big numbers compared to nations with less
populace, so the media can play on that.

Right now we are ranked 7th outside China. I expect to see us crawl up that
ranking list. The other nation's numbers are also growing, so we'll see.

The current mortality rate of deceased / deceased + recovered remains too high to
take much meaning from. I've seen 14-18% figures, but those are not even in
the same ball park as what the final rate will be.

You can still review them if you access my database.

There are now 115 nations declaring cases within their borders. 1+

Tonigh we'll take a look at seven nations outside China. These seven account
for over 84% of the global numbers outside China. Here they are.

9,172 27.22% Italy
7,513 22.30% South Korea
7,161 21.25% Iran
1,412 04.19% Franc
1,231 03.65% Spain
1,224 03.63% Germany
0,754 02.24% the USA

84.48% of all cases outside of China...

These are clearly seven nations worthy of watching.

I have a new section that addresses only the cases in the United States.

I have a new metric that explains how many people there are to one case in
each of these entities: Globally, Mainland China, Outside China, and inside
the United States. There is one person in every so many people in each of
these entities.

Globally      :  167,975
Mainland China:   78,265
Outside China :  272,173
The U. S. A.  :  459,527
One thing that bothers me about the reporting by Johns Hopkins University
is that they wait until after 20:00 EDT to report out recovered numbers.
The United States seems to be particularly bad about reporting out
recovery numbers, but it's possible we haven't seen cases in numbers here
large enough to produce a good body of recovering people yet.

We had those large losses from that one nursing home, and that has skewed
the mortality rate to something in the range of 70%. Over the long hawl that
isn't going to hold up, so it's nothing more than a curiosity at the moment.
No nation is seeing anything like that.

It's just unfortunate how that turned out there for the inhabitants.

Even the Diamond Princess, the cruise ship where everyone was figured to be
next to death, out of 696 cases, so far only 6 have died. That and other
numbers out there outside of China, make it clear this is not a mass killer.
People will die like they do whenever the flu comes along. Sad but true.

All data below sourced from Johns Hopkins University: LINK

I have been downloading three to five reports per day since 01/27. I have then
worked up numbers that should give a very good representation of numbers that
have been provided to the public via that site.

In my spreadsheet linked below, you'll find global numbers including China. You
will find a separate section addressing just the Outside China figures. Then
there is now also a section with just the United States stats in there. There
are also a lot of special stats broken out for you to browse. The history of
115 nations and their numbers from day one of their reporting.

You're welcome to it.

COVID-19 Spreadsheet using JHU data


File XLS

I now have an XLS file again, but it is for viewing only. I had to do a wrap-
around to get it to fit in the XLS file format. On the top right you will see
nations 1-70 listed. I cut and pasted nations 71-115 under them. You'll
see what I mean.

Has it spread on the web? I woke up at 5 this morning and saw that. I had to try not to wake everybody from laughing so hard.

Yes Gail, that is true.

I do want you to grasp that these number are being reported the same
way as they were for every other flu virus though.

This isn't some new trick.

I've been saying for over a month now, that when this virus came to
the nations outside China, there would only be a partial counting
here too.

I don't think there's evil in the reporting outside China, it's just
a matter of catching every case in the public.

When we read the stats for former flu epidemics, those figures
need to be taken with a grain of salt too.
