  2. Mike, I'm sure I don't understand all of the data either! Way out of my league! From what I can see, the table on page E4 shows 33,296 actual deaths in Illinois for the period 1 March to end of May 2020. Of those, 4,911 were officially recorded as COVID-19 deaths, leaving 28,385 not recorded as being covid- related. Using modelling based on weekly death counts from December 2013 to February 2020, taking into account seasonality and adjusted for annual trends, state by state, the writers calculated the number of deaths which would have been expected in Illinois over that period would have been 25,800. In other words, they estimated that 7,500 "excess" deaths occurred over the period, 7,500 more deaths than would have been expected according to their modelling. Excess deaths equaled the difference between the actual recorded deaths and the expected number of deaths over the period. Of that 7,500 "excess" deaths, 4,911 were officially recorded as being caused by COVID-19. When taken nationally, the report estimates that there were 122,300 more deaths than would typically be expected at that time of year. There were 95,235 reported deaths officially attributed to COVID-19 from March 1 to May 30, 2020. The number of excess all-cause deaths was 28% higher than the official tally of COVID-19–reported deaths during that period. In several states, these deaths occurred before increases in the availability ofCOVID-19 diagnostic tests and were not counted in official COVID-19 death records. The report lists many of its limitations and areas where further research is necessary. There's a more up-to-date table, to June 27, in the following article, including a chart for Illinois. As with the first article, the data and underlying methodology way out of my league!

    More likely some enterprising town will lure them in with food and start a new tourist attraction.

    If they are not careful they might become Filipino food........
  7. Maybe trying some Filipino food?
  8. Dafey, regular delivery was free, express cost me $8.00
  9. I wear a Guy Fawkes mask in bed... but it has nothing to do with covid19... (wink).
  10. Maybe better to have face shield with passenger making sure driver sprays it before putting it on. Not the best but better than most, not to good for ladies hair. Can be locked in place. With no backrest the approved design will pull driver off bike if passenger falls off and doesn't let go. 3rd is the worst, too high. 4th is much better for stability - grip more around waist than on back
  11. one more question we go to store buy food we wear mask how many members here wear a mask in their house? How many members here married or with partner sleep in separate rooms or wear mask in bed
  12. And some hospitals are happy to assist you if you suspect you might have virus even if your not sick just go to hospital and find out only cost you a few thousand dollars how about free testing instead of lock downs? I am not smart but just how does a say family of 6 living in a 30 sq meter house isolate from each other and if there are children under 6 years then what
  13. Yesterday
  14. No doubt things will be much better in time Dave. Where in Cebu are you looking to settle? My youngest daughter is with the VA hospital in West Palm Beach. They have been at capacity for a month or so and turning Vets away. Now they are setting up tents in the parking lot.
  15. I think the new Quarantine classification will be...WTFQ
  16. Depends on where you are. We have no cases at the moment in our little corner of the world so we are comfortable going to market or grocery but still are extremely cautious, (maybe overly so), with our hygiene. Masks of course, hand sanitizer or alcohol as soon as we are back in the car and shower and launder those clothes when home. I still have to lie about my age to get in the store though...guess I've come full circle. Anybody know where I can get a fake ID? Filipinos are very sociable creatures and even here in the Philippines it's tough to make them understand the severity of what all this means. They think, oh, it's my friend or relative...nothing bad could happen. No need Chris, we can use a little common sense in all the threads...except the CR, no common sense there!
  17. You must be miserable, bored to death. I am stuck in Seattle until Oct 1. At least I am able to get out and do things unlike in the Philippines going nuts in my house. It’s my understanding that the Philippines has the tightest restrictions in the world.
  18. For sure, I still like to stay informed as there is a need, My only concern is I'm 73 and part of that 1% that is on the upper end of survival. I Also haven't been out of the Sub division gate for 5 months which rolls off the tongue easily but is pushing the limit.... Yes agree to MOVE getting off topic..
  19. I'd taken a similar approach a couple of years ago to news in general, it just made me mad or stressed, the quality and veracity has just declined over the decades to the point where it's not useful and in fact probably unhealthy beyond small doses, at least for me. Didn't miss the news at all. But with COVID I wanted to stay informed for me and my family, so I found and monitor some of the local government statistics sites, and read some COVID news to try to filter out agendas and obtain facts related to the state of the spread. The last few weeks have me concluding that right now it's just really bad out there, only it's not "out there", it's right here. But on the positive side, most people recover and in my family age group more than 99% are either only mildly affected or otherwise recover fully. That is with the exception of my wife's 81 YO mother who lives with us, and has not left the house/yard area for several months, other than routine doctor appointments. With the situation here in Phoenix and kids potentially returning to school next month (schools are still weighing what options to offer in terms of online vs. in-class-but-socially distanced mixes), we are moving my wife's mother to stay with my wife's other sister in the midwest for the next several months where the overall community and immediate living situation will have her at lower risk of exposure. Edit: this might need to move to the Homebound Responsible Types thread, mods of course feel free to move it (I would move it if I knew how to do that).
  20. The governments will just borrow more funds from another international organization like so many poor nations are doing. It will be interesting to see the reaction of the citizens when they are told there is no money left for all the necessary requirements of governing, like infrastructure repair, social services, transportation, food for the starving masses. But, be assured there will always be plenty of money for the police and the military, you know, to fight terrorism, cyber criminals and protestors.
  21. Gosh monitoring this thread makes me not feel good about coming to Cebu for any reason. Wish it were not that way. I just turned 62 and am tired of working. Had been really looking forward to building my luxury nipa hut in Cebu somewhere. We are still a couple years away from making the move so maybe the situation will be more manageable by then. The family members in Cebu hospitalized are out and recovered. One had covid, one had a lung infection. Back when this started wifey had mom and dad close the sari sari store. We are making up for the lost income and keeping them provisioned. Its been tough on everyone both here in texas and there in Mandaue. My brother in Maryland is a super doctor, a cardio pulmonary specialist. He reports a much decreased but steady undiminishing stream of covid cases coming into the hospital there. And much reduced deaths as he says they have figured out how to deal with covid. Ill ask him what that means, what treatments and report back. Everyone stay safe!
  22. Well this is coming from another point of view. Hope it's not OT but it IS about quarenteen... I spoke with my doctor over the phone in Consolacion, only needed a prescription for BP meds. I told him among other things I was following Covid19 stats from the start and from many sources, and its true every morning I would check out LinC particularly info supplied by Headshot, Kahuna, and others of coarse. The doctor told me to make sure that I didn't get stressed by information overload. He said, keep safe, yes for sure take in information,, eat well, exercise, however in reality there is not much more you can do as to worrying about Covid19 will not make it go away. So, I now rarely comment on Covid19 posts and try to involve in the "lighter side of LinC" posts (like backing into a parking bay).pft.... True,, I'm interested when the BI and airport/flights are returning but looking up country lists on how many died,, and How many That and so on,, I've given up. Anyway that's where I am..

      Hi, Jim this is Lynette.  I just realize that you live in Tisa, Labangon.  I have a property there and very helpful nephew name Junie (09321037886 ) who has a car in Lower South Hills area.  If you need any help let me call him.  I already talk to him.  He knows a place where you can buy fresh produce (Carbon price) near Labangon.

      Good morning! I recall that you mentioned that you were thinking of having solar panels installed at your house on Camotes. Did this happen and can you please tell me where you got your  solar panels from?
      My wife and I have a house on Camotes and we are interested in installing solar panels on our roof.
      Thank you in advance!
