I also was stunned by the small percentage of infected that were considered recovered. BTW, how do they figure recovered - normally it's two negative viral tests and no symptoms. With the scarcity of tests in most locations I wonder if they are actually testing recovered people.

One other alarming fact, COVID patients in NY are spending 11-21 days on a ventilator while the "normal" flu or other type of patient need the ventilator spent 4-5 days on it. You can see why they are scrambling to get more vents.

Deb, we made the trip back to the Midwest. The trip wasn't bad, campgrounds were making adjustments (curbside check-in and closed stores). We actually were sheltering in place while our shelter was moving down the road.

We feel more comfortable where we have our doctors and know the health care system. Our area is in the rapid growth phase, but still no where near critical hospital admissions. The next two weeks will be a critical time.

We left Florida because of the lack of urgency, spring break and the number of kids running and playing all over the campground. I know risk was minimal, it just seemed too many people weren't taking this seriously. We'll see what happens in Florida over the next few weeks.

A graph of new cases in Canada. In spite of huge efforts there is as yet no flattening of the curve.

General Announcement:

For a while we were diverting posts from RV Parks, Campgrounds and Attractions because too many threads were focusing on the virus as opposed to the appropriate topics for that forum as described here:

RV Parks, Campgrounds and Attractions
Pick or pass - Post your opinions on campgrounds, parks, resorts, attractions, and places to go.

Considering closing and opening of campgrounds, due to the pandemic, is a legitimate topic we would like you to post that info there. If discussion gets off topic, focused solely on the virus, and/or political we will move them back to ACT.

Thank you.

Peak Prosperity sounded the alarm on the virus on January 24th. He was ridiculed at the time... and was spot on. Late February, he said if you haven't prepped by now, it's probably too late. Few days later, stores were cleaned out.

Here's his latest video where he's reviewing claims made by people that this virus is no big deal.

OOPS. Answered wrong post. Sorry.

It's not the heat but the UV light.

"Sunlight will cut the virus's ability to grow in half, so the half-life will be 2.5 minutes, and in the dark it's about 13 to 20 minutes. Sunlight is really good at killing viruses," Nicholls said.


In line with what you wrote, according to a TV news report I saw today, some medical center is using UV light to disinfect their protective gear.

FYI I have a 50 watts (consumed) 380 nM UV chip running at full wattage

It is NOT UVa nor UVb that kills the virus quivkly


It is total saturated doseage of UVc

Chemicals tender the virus harmless light years faster than low doses of UVc

Ozone is an instant killet. Good and reliable O3 machines are not cheap

Hi Don. Hope you are staying healthy. Here in BC we are starting to see some encouraging news on the infection rate. It has dropped from 24 to 12 percent. Our minister of health says are target rate is 7 percent. Hopefully by the middle of April we will be on track. We are unfortunately still seeing a couple desths per day, most in the two seniors homes.

Stay safe Don and best of health to you and yours.

Reisender, I'm glad to hear things are getting better in BC!

I'm safe and sound and self isolating.

And just a shout out to China. In Feb when China was in the darkest days of the pandemic Canada sent 16 tons of supplies to China to help them out.

Today China responded in kind two fold.

“On March 27, Bank of China donates medical supplies (including 30000 medical masks, 10000 sets of protective clothing, 10000 goggles and 50000 pairs of gloves, followed by N95 medical masks) to Canada fighting against COVID-19. We are together!”

Thank you China.
