the use of hotels is an indicator that the existing hospitals are beyond their capacities! 
the same "type" of practices where being used in NY, NY!

this is a dire situation, we ALL should be concerned with!

No Frankiej, your conclusion is not accurate. Right now there is no one staying there. It is part of a national plan to make sure that hospital beds will be available. The hotel, according to the article and I will add the link, is for people who test positive but are not very sick and are unable to isolate at home for various reasons.

I am not saying we should not be concerned about the virus but that the fact the hotel is going to be used is not a sign of a dire problem but of good planning.

maryt, my post was in response to posts #'s 481 & 482! i made no assumption to the hotel's current occupancy! i did relate how the practice was used in NY,NY! 
i find it obvious with ALL the new convid-19 cases, including medical personal and related deaths associated with the local hospitals, that it only be prudent that the "national plan" be activated!


i remind you MOST, those suspected of having the virus are sent back home! we have seen how this can be a mistake IE; the young man who passed away who worked for "deportenis", HE LIVED IN A HOUSEHOLD OF 10!!! the bus driver who worked and lived in the Guaymas Norte route! the article you posted refers to isolating people with households of more than 4!


you state my conclusion is "in accurate" but you fail to provide any statistics regarding current occupancy of all the hospitals in Guaymas!


mary, you and I are not the PROFESSIONALS making these prudent decisions for the community! WE ARE THE OBSERVERS LIVING IN ISOLATION IN THE COMFORTS OF OUR HOMES, expanding our knowledge through press releases, THAT ARE UPDATED AND REVISED TO MEET THE CURRENT UNDERSTANDINGS BEING RELEASED!

Iguanas was open yesterday evening with live music and lots of people. I counted 22 vehicles there around 7. Can imagine how many more people later. Nobody sitting at the bar, only at tables. Hang on folks, this is just getting started here.

Hook,


It's a very small town and it's not like San Carlos or Guaymas where folks barely speak to their neighbors; it's very close knit community. I could cite examples, but it would fill this page.


They turned away tourists, shut down almost ALL businesses in Alamos, they put up roadblocks on the two major roads in (via Navojoa and Masiaca), restricted travel, wore face masks, all very early, way before the Federal, State and other local goverments were taking this kind of action. Sound cars go around daily encouraging people to stay home.


If someone were displaying symptoms in this tiny place, they would go to the hospital and be tested. This time of year we are very hot, very dry (of course the very first sprinkles of the monsoon season just arrived Saturday), conditions favorable for good health. When there is a Flu in this town... EVERYONE gets sick... including ME.... Has not happened with this pandemic.


Having lived in San Carlos, Guaymas and Alamos... having conducted business in all three... I can tell you that Alamos is a much more transparent community. Sure, that's anecdotal. However, it is unlikely there is some grand cover up in Alamos. I don't think there is much fodder for the dark web in alamos. 


Now that there is one case, sure we will probably begin to see more, as obviously it's arrived. We will see how they combat the spread.... They certainly did a good job of putting precautions in place to delay it's introduction..

"it's not like San Carlos or Guaymas where folks barely speak to their neighbors" That is a sad statement to make, was it you or your neighbors? How long did you live in SC?

Let's see if I can word this another way.


I'm a gregarious, outgoing, social person. I'm not hard pressed to start conversations.


San Carlos is a transient beach town. Lots of second homes, lots of tourist coming and going. Guaymas is a small city / big port town. Rather high crime. 


Alamos is a small isolated mountain pueblo. Folks are more engaged with one another.


Seven+ years in Guaymas/SanCarlos, Six+ years in Alamos. Just find neighbors interact much much more in the small rural setting. I may have used a bit of hyperbole to describe interactions between neighbors in cities and transient beach towns.  No need to feel saddened by or make drama of my statement.


Back to the topic at hand.  Still just the one reported case of Coronavirus in Alamos. Businesses opened up this week, so let's see if it holds...

Pretty good article about the recent reports of more deaths in one day than the US. Official denial of course.

I have spoken with some friends who are seriously in denial of this Covid 19. They keep commenting that it is only as bad as the flu. I am tired of trying to explain to them that it is different. Masks help when going in public, but staying at home is the best solution (if you can).

There is no concensus of opinion on what to do because it affects our individual lives so drastically, so differently.

I can afford to isolate. Lucky me.

Others can't, they still have to produce daily, and me telling them to isolate does not solve their problem.

I have no right to preach to the less fortunate or fear full on their life and death decisions.
