Wash your hands, save a life


Testing in serious numbers is just getting underway in the US, so the number of cases reported here will be jumping. (3/8) “Don’t panic” is always good advice (thank you, Douglas Adams) but “Better safe than sorry” also seems to apply here.

This article on pandemic phases (3/9) notes that phase two is “when people who don’t realise they have contracted Covid-19 go about their daily lives rather than stay isolated.” This is where a lot of the US is right now, and the article includes this image (already on Wikimedia), depicting how being careful now will help prevent COVID-19 from doing more harm than it will already:


A doctor in Italy (now on lockdown across the country) noted yesterday: “Some of our colleagues who are infected also have infected relatives and some of their relatives are already struggling between life and death. So be patient, you can’t go to the theatre, museums or the gym. Try to have pity on the myriad of old people you could exterminate.
