No one has died from being cautious.

For some reason I feel a lot better mentally when I safely get an hour's sun daily. It was too easy for me to stay cooped up indoors. Now weather and safety permitting, I spend an hour in full sun.


I think you're on the right track, as UV rays are known to be a virus killer. If your climate is hot, as it is here in Tucson, I understand heat is also a virus enemy.

This commentary on sunlight not likely being effective at destroying SARS-cov-2 was published in the peer reviewed journal Lancet.

Solar ultraviolet radiation sensitivity of SARS-CoV-2

This publication estimated the dose of UVC needed to inactive a SARS virus.
Estimating UV-C Sterilization Dosage for COVID-19 Pandemic Mitigation Efforts
Quote:

Conducting a curve fitting analysis on SARS-CoV-1 survivorship data obtained from existing literature, the approximate UV-C dosage required to inactivate the virus below assay limit of detection was found to be 36144 J/m2 (? 5-log). Using this dosage as a benchmark for UVGI applications against SARS-CoV-2, a benchmark minimum exposure time can be determined by t?(1.5× 106) ?·(r2/P), where r is the distance from the UV-C source to the sample surface, P is the wattage of the germicidal bulb, and t is expressed in seconds. This amounts to at least 2 hours for a 15 W UV-C bulb placed 6 inches from a disinfecting surface.


UVC works to inactive viruses by being mutagenic; UVC damages RNA and DNA.

Sobering graph from Johns Hopkins

Edit: This is an 'active tally' and has to be watched till the end to see the results so be patient and watch carefully. (Mod)

New Zealand announces no new cases for 17 days. People entering the country will still have to quarantine but the rest of society is going back to no normal.

Hi all,

Calculating the death rate is not easy when there are variables.

One way to calculated without variables is to divide

deaths / (deaths + recovered).

In USA as of June 7th 2020 that yields a rate of 12.97%

World wide, the death rate is about 10.50%

Canada is almost identical to USA, but there is a huge hot spot in Quebec.

Saskatchewan has but 16 active cases.
