"but Mom, he started it" you're absolutely correct--knee jerk response on my part.

You're right, they ARE anecdotal. And I can share stories across tens of thousands of ER encounters, some not so good, most pretty average, and a lot spectacular, so what. I have a problem with the statement "trust my own experience"---it is limited compared to the thousands of data points that go into the published numbers
Please avoid any physician who states "in my experience", I'm more interested in the evidence based medicine that should be practiced.

I hope every one of the threads on this crap gets shut down.

I pity America if there was a real national threat.
And No I do not think this is a real national threat.

Lets all be a part of the solution rather than a part of the problem.
#1 Wash your Hands, Wash your Hands,Wash your Hands ect.
#2 Avoid Crowds
#3 If you suspect you have been infected DO NOT head to the ER or your Doctors office,call a medical professional and describe your symptoms and follow their advice.

And don't touch the mail, don't touch money if you don't know where it came from, don't touch doorknobs, don't pet others pets. don't touch the ATM, stay out of restaurants, don't touch eating utensils, don't touch the gas pumps, don't buy beverages form the bar huts at the squares, don't go shopping for anything that you think has been touched or breathed on...................
.................and for God's...DON'T BREATH IN PUBLIC PLACES!!
I hope everyone heeds these common sense suggestions.

In my opinion, it’s better to take precautions. At our age in TV the (possible) panic won’t kill us. But the virus may. (Yes, I know I have changed my mind, but I am now considering the current information we have on the virus.)

For the deniers: remember the guy who fell off the 10 story building and said as he passed the 5th story, “So far so good”.

i agree . when the tornado hit the villages in 2007 the ER was overwhelmed and care substandard at least for us. imagine a pandemic. and the villages hospital gets the worst rating from medicare.

I have lived here for just about 50-years now.A few years back I had to use the ER at LRMC.This was due to food poisoning.(My fault)
This was on a Sunday.The ER was packed at the time.I checked in with the front desk and gave them the info they needed.Total wait time was about 30-MINUTES.You would have thought I was JC himself. On other visits it was just about the same thing.Never had to wait that long.Last year I used the new urgent care at LRMC and was treated the same way.

Please avoid any physician who states "in my experience", I'm more interested in the evidence based medicine that should be practiced.
as a pharmacist, I am aware of "evidence based medicine". well, I remember a young cardiology fellow suggested using lasix as an IV infusion back in 1980s and was laughed at. however, he had seen it clinically beneficial during his residency. guess what, it's now an accepted treatment. give me a common sense doctor with a lot of clinical experience and an open mind any day over someone who bases all decisions on numbers. many new practitioners (and I include pharmacists in that) are fixated on "evidence based" medicine and have not a lick of common sense.

one of the finest cardiologists I ever knew told me he listened to everyone....the nurses, the aides, the housekeepers if they had information about his patient. you can combine that with the numbers.

sorry, it's one of the reasons I retired....the lack of common sense was getting to be too much. length of stays determined by "numbers" instead of how the patient actually looked....and the same patient being readmitted in days, polypharmacy because the practitioners don't have time to really look at past records.

The Villages just closed down the production at Savannah Center tonight. It was closing night of The Producers and it was sold out. I'm bummed, but I understand.
