If in your 80's, self quarantining until the weather warms above 29 C is one option, wherever you are...

I think the 2 cases of the virus in Mexico were in CDMX.
El Imparcial is reporting the case/s in Sinaloa actually turned out to be common cold.

from what is being reported, we are only at the cusp of this epidemic! 
let me remind all. the earth has 2 hemispheres, the northern where this virus is active and the southern hemisphere! winter here, summer there!
it is only speculated that the virus may slow as it gets warmer, that prognosis is for the existing infected northern hemisphere! 
the virus is spreading and could be infecting the southern hemisphere, where their flu  season is only beginning! "i know it is not a flu"!!!!
probably from what is being reported, the most vulnerable are people with existing respiratory problems.  
also from what is being reported, since it is a virus and no existing medication available yet. treatment is being conducted by consuming "Gatorade" type drinks and products!
lets all use common sense and stay healthy!

There is no evidence weather impacts the virus.

It's only more active in the northern hemisphere right now because that is where it started.

Example of southern hemisphere infection/activity: Australia

Today was the first time I noticed the Coronavirus announcements/commercials on MegaCable TV stations, giving viewers information about the virus and tips for preventing contracting it.


Glad they are getting this information out on TV.  I hope it helps educate and inform.


Stay healthy, everyone!

Just got a text message that no testing is being done at airports and that there are only 3 labs in Mexico that can process the tests and very few test kits and only in big hospitals.  Hang in there.

I would venture to say, 99% of posters here are not obligated to a work schedule or anything else. So...if your mind needs peace.....stay in your home or compound for a couple of weeks. Watch TV, read, learn Spanish, pet your dogs...do something..but don't panic.

Just because Tom and Rita Hanks are in Australlia where it is summertime does not mean they did not come in contact with someone that just got off a flight from Italy or anywhere else the virus is.

it's a pandemic!


it seems here in San Carlos people have a "NO PASA NADA" attitude!
 of the 99% refereed to in post #13 who are retired, 80% or more of them are not from here, were have they been traveling in the last few weeks?


i am not paranoid, i think we should just heighten our social interactions! maybe avoiding the local customs of hugging, kissing, handshakes, until this settles down some!
be safe, enjoy life to the fullest, stay healthy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

According to the CDC, they have developed a specialized test for the COVID 19 virus.  



https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/testing.html


Who believes there are adequate supplies of the test here in Mexico?  
I have a hard time believing any reports of ‘confirmed’ cases of COVID 19 when it is unknown what testing method is being used in Mexico.
I suspect actual cases of COVID 19 in Mexico are severely under reported/estimated.

The World Health Organization sent test kits last month to some 60 countries. Trump refused any, denying reality.

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/03/06/coronavirus-testing-failure-123166

Due to this the US still does not have the capacity to test people that are showing signs of having the virus. Unless you have an underlying chronic illness that puts you at higher risk of death you will be refused getting the test even in ER. There are app. 26 test kits per 1 million people available.

That CDC article is a few days old now.

I watched a posted You tube video from NBC News this morning. It appears to have been recorded from about 0800-1000 MST, today. It is a meeting of the House Oversight committee. They are getting testimony from the directors of the CDC and the NIAID about where we are at (in the US) with responding to COVID-19.

Naturally, it gets political at times. EVERYTHING DOES IN WASHINGTON THESE DAYS.

But there is good information, and probably the most current information, that you could get right now, on what the government is doing.
