Corona Virus cases - facts only please

by marshasg1, Monday, March 16, 2020, 16:55 (22 days ago)

I just read that there are 53 cases of Corona Virus in Mexico. This morning someone said 2 cases in Zihua ( one a Canadian with a high temp discovered at the airport). This afternoon, I heard 8 cases.

I'm a permanent resident and I live here. Not going any where right now and happy to stay. I appreciate that everything is open and the locals are not stressed.

But I am interested in what the actual situation is here. I know they have been taking temps at the airport, but what then?

And who or where would have the actual facts?

This is what I’m reading from March 16...

“A dramatic surge in coronavirus infections in Southeast Asia in recent days has increased doubts over a theory that warmer weather could stem the spread of the virus, health experts say.

“Relatively low cases of infections in many southeast Asian countries had been cited as possible evidence that hotter weather was suppressing the virus, giving hope to Europe, Canada and the United States as they head into spring.

“But countries from Indonesia to Thailand to Malaysia and the Philippines have recorded their highest rate of infections in recent days as testing has ramped up, in a sign seasonal factors may only play a limited role in the spread of coronavirus.”

Just because someone has a temperature doesn't mean they have COVID-19. I have been discouraging chisme on the matter and referring people to the only official source in the country.

The only FACTS on the matter are coming from the Secretaría de Salud. No other government entity is supposed to be discussing the matter in order to avoid the chaos and confusion that has occurred elsewhere.

Today the Canadian gov't said all air crews bringing flights into Canada will do initial screening at the airport where they are boarding. Anyone showing symptoms, including Canadians, will not be allowed to board. There will be help with necessities for those who get stranded.
Interestingly, this would deny Canadians their constitutional right to return home, so the lawyers are already talking constitutional challenge. I guess that will have to wait until this is over or whatever the outcome.
Our offices with about 300 full time employees was shut down today. I'm all for it. Stay home and stem the spread.

Emergency powers, even in the US, entail the cutting of constitutional corners.

It is unproven that the virus does not survive in heat. It thrives in moist areas (mouth, nose, eyes).

the problem with the virus is that symptoms don't present for 2-12 days. So, you can be a "transmitter" without being symptomatic.

Taking temperatures will keep positive cases from boarding planes or entering countries, but it's the people who are asymptomatic that we must worry about. They get to board the planes and enter the countries....and then later develop symptoms and have to back track to determine who they were in contact with so that those people can get tested.

This is why Italy did a total lockdown. This is why we are now getting shelter in place orders in the US - city by city. San Francisco was the first and we believe NYC will be next.

Please be safe everyone. We are living in unchartered territory. I pray that Mexico is smart and takes every precaution - closing it's borders, sheltering in place, social distancing, etc.... before it becomes Italy. #flattenthecurve
