    It's great to see that they are developing tools. They need to get them going into production!

    ^^^ That's pretty cool.

    But the the survival rate once a person gets to the point of needing a ventilator is very low. In Wuhan, it was under 10%. In the US, we're doing slightly better, but not a whole lot. Bottom line: Cranking out a zillion ventilators will not save many lives. Instead, we need to figure out how to keep the disease from progressing to the point where people need ventilators. Giving people Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) and Zithromax (azithromycin), plus doing what is often forgotten, making sure they have adequate zinc levels, seems to go a long way toward preventing the disease from progressing to the point where a ventilator is their last hope. The thing is, you have to do it early; if you wait until someone is in need of treatment in an ICU, it's too late.

    Oh, and the models that said we needed a zillion ventilators are just plain wrong. Check out what those models predicted a couple weeks ago, when Cuomo was screaming he needed 40,000 ventilators. NY is using less than 1/3 the number of ICU beds that the lowest estimates in those models predicted, and yes, those predictions included the effects of closing everything "non essential" and staying at home.

    There's much we don't understand yet, but I'm really starting to think that the doomsayers are off-base and that we're over-reacting.

    And... just after you've nodded off to sleep, it plows you into a traffic barrier :-D

    Seriously though - those gloves and masks are making it worse for them - they don't appear to be anywhere they require them, they haven't even fitted the masks correctly. It's probably just for dramatics. They're doing sweet-F.A. else.

    I wonder if these "DIY" vents have to go through FDA? It costs a fortune, is stringent and takes forever... normally. The concept is very simple, compared to the reality.

    That's a terribly misleading article.
    If President Donald Trump lifts shelter-in-place orders after 30 days
    Neither Trump nor the FedGov has issued any "shelter-in-place orders". That has been left to the individual states and municipalities, and some states have never had such orders at all.

    Where is the catastrophe in North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Arkansas and Iowa?

    For that matter where is the catastrophe in Sweden, which also has very few restrictions?

    One-size-fits-all policies are not appropriate everywhere. What may be appropriate in a densely populated place like NYC may not be appropriate in rural areas. Besides, people are will not immediately return to crowding into bars, restaurants, and sports stadiums, and so on, even if they're allowed to.

    Bottom line: The lock-downs simply cannot last forever.
