She said her hands and arms are getting raw from all the washings. I thought I'd pass this on for those who may benefit from it.
I stocked up on disposable gloves some time ago, mainly for filthy diesel fuel pumps. Rather not have to wash a lot.


There is a "correct" way to remove the gloves to prevent contamination. If you screw up you could have a false sense of security. I'd continue to wash your hands as frequently as practical, but the gloves can and do offer a level of security.

I had a question regarding hydrogen peroxide as a possible substitute for alcohol based sanitizers.

Please keep in mind we are still not allowing political posts or unfounded claims or projections.

The pandemic is bad enough as it is; we do not need to create unfounded fear or alarm.

Thank you.

Something to hope for here: Majority of patients only have mild symptoms and are recovering...

So we are on a camping forum but people can't post about campground closings? Is this correct or am I missing something?

I have noticed that a lot of people don't understand exponential growth. At the time of this writing new cases double every three days in the US. Starting from today's number of new cases this is how it stands if we don't slow the spread and the rate remains unchanged

Date, Number of New cases
3/25/2020 11,074
3/28/2020 22,148
3/31/2020 44,296
4/03/2020 88,592
4/06/2020 177,184
4/09/2020 354,368
4/12/2020 708,736
4/15/2020 1,417,472
4/18/2020 2,834,944
4/21/2020 5,669,888
4/24/2020 11,339,776
4/27/2020 22,679,552
4/30/2020 45,359,104
5/03/2020 90,718,208
5/06/2020 181,436,416
5/09/2020 362,872,832


Edit: It's hard creating tables in this format.

They have a doubling every 2.5 days, I read many other places that it's every 3 days.
