    Is Argentina not letting its own citizens back into the country now?

    The repatriation flights should only be suspended temporarily, more info to follow in the next few days, according to this article, below. "La decisión de no traer más argentinos fue para darnos tiempo para que no entre el virus...las próximas repatriaciones seguramente van a ser más...

    WHO Daily Adresses

    As many of you may not have the time/inclination to watch the daily hour long WHO briefings, so here I'll share some of what was said in the intro on the most recent one, from.my notes so not verbatim: "The pandemic is accelerating, it took 67 days from the first reported case to reach 100,000...

    Corona Virus May Hit Argentina Hard

    Hey, So I went back through some WHO statements to see when their advice on travel started changing, and why. It seems that they were slow for sure, but then if you dig a bit deeper its clear that a significant proportion of member states (countires who are signatories to the international...

    Corona Virus May Hit Argentina Hard

    I don't think you are factoring in the deaths resulting from lack of capacity in the health systems. Something which your numbers take no account of. This overwhelming of the health system will also cascade over and cause many collateral deaths of people who have other illnesses and get 'pushed...

    Corona Virus May Hit Argentina Hard

    Italy Also, it's possible to walk and chew gum at the same time. Sorry, I know I'm being somewhat dry. But you really think this is an over reaction, given all the data, which experts like the WHO interpret to require these sorts of actions. They didn't reccommend this for other epidemics over...

    Corona Virus May Hit Argentina Hard

    An interesting article here on how the villas de emergencia will be affected by covid19. When you don't have running water and sewer access, coupled with mass overcrowding, you can't really implement WHO best practices very easily. It's a timebomb. The approach mentioned in the article seems...

    Corona Virus May Hit Argentina Hard

    Actually it's been mentioned in TN as a possibility for 2/3 days now, they've been quoting anonymous government sources. Given the global and local experience, I'd say we are now more likely than not for an official state of.emergency to be declared. (Martial law). We will see...

    Yes, they did extremely well. They are a good example to us all. It's cheap and scalable; as in relatively, for governments. And far more so that waiting for these new tests to be developed in house by various farma, who should have been immediately tasked to produce the available tests weeks...

    South Korea, 20k tests a day, for weeks now, almost a month. Singapore, China have also managed. It can be done. If you look into the details you will unfortunately find that , at least in the UK and the USA , government sanctioned profiteering in hand with pharma is a likely explaination for...

    For Coronavirus junkies

    How did a small town in northern Italy wipe out Corona, despite having the first death from it? They just followed the WHO advice; tested everyone, isolated infected people in homes and not hospitals. And presto. Meanwhile many countries strive to restrict and monetize their own testing...

    WHO Daily Adresses

    I think I'll post them in this thread, with a few mentions of key points. Today's WHO Daily Briefing 20/03/20: A message for young people, data clearly shows that people under 50 make up a significant proportion of those requiring hospitalization. Great concern that the virus is taking a...

    Corona Virus May Hit Argentina Hard

    Not only a bad idea but specifically mentioned in the WHO daily update 2 days ago. They said that the counties that have isolated infected people together in special facilities, have contained, and that they strongly advise against using the hospital system as is, for obvious reasons. I'm...
