    Tried doing that on table with drawers. Never even reached the top :LOL:

    Also, our kapitbahay has been waiting for their relief goods since yesterday. Since social distancing, dito na kinabit ung sakong lalagyan.

    I hope so. I feel like the first four weeks will have been in vain if lifting the ECQ too early allows it to start spreading again, and it may be unstoppable at that point. I feel like we still have a chance to actually flatten the curve locally if they extend it

    It should. It’s a matter of life and death now. Everyone knows it has to because of what they have been seeing around them. So whatever bullshit some people say about human rights being more important or that the government is not doing enough, it’s about us, ourselves, and everybody else doing what we can to live our lives to the fullest and defeating this enemy before we can finally get back to where we were before the madness began.

    Yes, and more tests should be done so we'd know how to move forward. Actually, so our leaders would know what to do.

    Yes. 4 weeks wasn’t enough. They’ll probably add 2 more weeks, then reassess. Take it 2 weeks at a time after April 12. We haven’t even started mass testing yet.

    Mm....sort of mass testing being done. As of April 5 around 20,000 tests have been performed, of which around 80% were negative. Read it somewhere.

    From CNN PH :

    “The health official said the Research Institute of Tropical Medicine and other subnational laboratories can collectively administer 900 to 1,200 tests daily. This number will further increase to more than 3,000 a day by April 14 and up to 10,000 daily by the end of the month, Vergeire projected.”

    The UP-developed PCR test kits will go into commercial production in a short while. This will help DOH surveillance and finally uncover the true extent of infection in the PH.

    All PUIs and PUMs will qualify for the expanded testing.

    From what I could sense, the quarantine should be in sync with the world to hopefully meet objectives significantly. What's the point of allowing your now-healthy neighbor to roam around and later on acquires new infection?

    Living in a country with one of the most intense human traffic with China and having a steady increase of cases here since early this year, well, we're just about to have a lockdown starting tomorrow, which is a month imposed later than the one in the Philippines.

    And not to defend the government for not imposing a January lockdown. Most of the governments around the world are heeding the recommendations from the World Health Organization, not from some Wealthy Hypertensive Opposition nor from any random guy, who is trying to rock the boat using oily keyboards.

    Yup, I find myself wondering about a worst case scenario: what if our government decided it's too hard to try to flatten the curve and too many people are complaining about their efforts, and then the government lifts all restrictions, allows everyone to go back out to their daily lives, and lets everyone handle the situation however they want to. And all that government will do is just publish warnings about the disease. What will happen to the Philippines and how long will it take?

    ^I give it 5-6 days. LGUs will be hard pressed to recover and hospitals will be overwhelmed by the living who are sick and the dead who will greatly outnumber those still alive. There will be widespread looting, even murder and arson. The police will have its ranks decimated by infections and defections. The military will step in but by then the country will be in chaos. Government will break down and aid will be stopped. Estimates will be 100,000 dead in a week.

    I’m not laying down the spoiler for World War Z.

    It’s clear that, at any time, the goal set in this
    Memo may be relaxed and/or modified by concerned agencies as public health and food security may require.

    It isn’t now just flattening the curve, but quashing the line: no or less deaths, more stable recoveries. That’s the bottom line.

    Been running around the house, an 80-meter loop. My longest so far is 10k, or 125 loops. My running buddies are crazy, joining that Strava contest who could run longest at home. They can do 21k, 42k inside their homes, on a 5m or 10m stretch, out and back out and back.
