As Florida finally cracks down, young revelers return to hometowns where people may have been social-distancing for days.

People gather on Clearwater Beach during spring break despite world health officials' warnings to avoid large groups on March 18 in Clearwater, Florida.


From the lockdown in NY/CA/WA, we should see case increase slow but then see huge outbreak in the remaining states in 2 weeks from the Spring Breaker returning...

People Continue to Pack California Beaches Despite Governor’s Stay at Home Order

Public beaches across California were filled with sunbathers and swimmers this weekend despite Governor Gavin Newsom’s order for Californians to stay at home to help stop the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Unfortunately, not everyone follows the rules.

Mayor Eric Garcetti

@MayorOfLA
This weekend we saw too many people packing beaches, trails and parks. So we are closing sports and recreation at @LACityParks and closing parking at city beaches. That doesn’t mean gather elsewhere. This is serious. Stay home and save lives.

Southern California crime appears to slow amid coronavirus stay-at-home order

LOL
Even the criminals are following the order.
Unlike the beach crowd.

Eureka! Is he trying to get rid of both POTUS, Dr. Fauci, and a goodly chunk of the congress in one fell swoop? Draining the swamp or at least locking them up? Every geriatric for oneself.

Perhaps a ploy to get rid of Democrats?

"The average age of the Democratic House leadership is 72 years old, whereas the average age of Republican House leadership is 48 years old. This trend continues in House committee leadership with Republican chairmen averaging 59 years old and ranking Democrats averaging 68 years old."

"Death Be Not Proud" is easy to say. Going six feet under forever is the ultimate compliance with the keep a six foot distance mandate.

Hydroxychloroquine did very well against the Coronavirus in reported usage by doctors in China and France (with a very small sample size)
Now, President Trump and Gov. Cuomo are working together to give it a truly substantive trial in New York State
A relatively large number of dosages (750,000) will be administered in NY State beginning today.
The reported results in China and France showed significant improvement in about 6+ days. So, about a week or so from now, we should have some evidence (pro or con).
Fingers crossed!

Unfortunately, given the devastation done by Covid-19 to the elderly Italian population, the average age of Italians has probably already gone down.

"One factor in the high death toll so far is the high median age in Italy, which is 47 years, compared to 37 in China and 38 in the U.S. Stated as a percentage of the total population, Italy has more people over the age of 80, 90, or 100 than any other major industrialized country except Japan. "
