New COVID-19 forecast for Ohio: an earlier peak, far fewer deaths
He #jumped on Mr Corona’s back early and stayed on like a #professional-bull-rider.
I can’t say enough about the #governor of Ohio, Mike DeWine; how he, his #consultants, his staff and everyone that assisted him in #manhandle Mr. Corona until they got his attention, showing him he was going to get his #ass-kicked in the State of Ohio.
At first glance, the governor looks a little, for the lack of a better word, unusual, but folks I can tell you he has got it all together. Because of his tough measures and doing the right things at the right time, it looks like his #leadership and the #efforts/cooperation of the people in Ohio are going to pay off.
SANDUSKY — A health institute in the state of Washington sharply revised its forecast for Ohio, predicting the COVID-19 outbreak will peak in its effect on hospitals in a couple of days and result in far fewer deaths than an earlier forecast.
The new forecast by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington says Ohio’s COVID-19 outbreak will peak in its effect on hospital resources on Wednesday, April 8, and will peak in daily deaths on April 12. It forecasts 544 coronavirus deaths by Aug. 4.
The new forecast suggests Gov. Mike DeWine’s tough measures to enforce social distancing are having an effect. The IHME forecast about a week ago predicted peak hospital use in Ohio on April 20, and forecast 1,672 deaths by Aug. 4.
In contrast, the IHME national forecast has hardly changed. About a week ago, it said over the next four months in the U.S. about 81,000 people will die from COVID-19. On Monday, the group’s website forecast 81,766 deaths by Aug. 4.
But that’s better than the group’s April 2 forecast of 93,531 deaths.
If this proves one thing conclusively; setting a logical,stern game plan, having the right people at the helm and following the rules, great things can be accomplished no matter in what venue or arena.
From here on in, if ALL of us can #implement the same principles into our daily lives, as to trying to #eliminate #racism and #hatred. just think of what social strides can be accomplished.
Don’t forget; we don’t have to like one another, RESPECT will do. You respect me and I will respect you.
Listen to a lady that knows that tune:
We are not out of the woods yet. But I would still like to #congratulate the governor – all his staff – advisers – doctor – nurses – EMT people and everyone that had a hand in keeping a good portion of OHIO’s population from the clutches of murderous beast Mr Corona.
Mr. DeWine my hat is off to you sir.
Continue to practice all the #rules/guidelines that were laid out until the all clear signal is given. Let us not get #anxious, acting to early and having a relapse.
Let us hope that the rest of the states in the country #follow-suit.
Nasty Nan, are you listening?? This is not the time for the politicians trying to run a #popularity contest.
Tough circumstances call for tough decisions – tough decisions, if followed, end up with in a great results.
THE PROOF IS IN THE DEWINE!!!!!!
Pitch in, #play-by-the-rules, follow all the health #guidelines set by the government, pass this information around to everyone you know, together we can whip Mr. Coronavirus’s ass. It is going to take a team effort to #kill this #monster.
There is currently no vaccine to prevent #coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
- CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
- Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
For information about #handwashing, see CDC’s Handwashing website

HELPFUL INFORMATION: I have no idea if all of this information is 100% correct, but it can not hurt to implement it. Stanford hospital board internal message.
The new Coronavirus may not show sign of infection for many days. How can one know if he/she is infected? By the time they have fever and/or cough and go to the hospital, the lung is usually 50% Fibrosis and it’s too late.
Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning. Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stiffness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no Fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicates no infection.
In critical time, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air. Serious excellent advice by Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases:
Everyone should ensure your mouth & throat are moist, never dry. Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach. Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the virus. If you don’t drink enough water more regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and into the lungs. That’s very dangerous. Please send and share this with family and friends.
Take care everyone and may the world recover from this Coronavirus soon. IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – CORONAVIRUS
1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold
2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.
3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun.
4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.
5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours – so if you come into contact with any metal surface – wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.
6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.
7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.
8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but – a lot can happen during that time – you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.
9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.
10. Can’t emphasis enough – drink plenty of water!
1. It will first infect the throat, so you’ll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days
2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.
3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you’re drowning. It’s imperative you then seek immediate attention.

Let us all pull in the same direction and kick Mr. Corona’s ass.
