The power of data to predict where the coronavirus will hit next

Just like a massive evacuation can save lives in a Category 4 hurricane, social distancing and shuttered workplaces can slow the rate at which the virus spreads.

China or Italy? A stark contrast on the coronavirus front
Thursday was a day of contrasts on the front lines of the battle against the new coronavirus. In a sign of hope, the Chinese city of Wuhan reported no new homegrown infections, but in a stark warning for the world, Italy appeared set to surpass China's death toll from the virus.

The two milestones were a dramatic illustration of how much the global outbreak has pivoted toward Europe and the United States. They also showed how the arc of contagion can vary in different nations, as Italy with 60 million people braces to see more carnage than China, a nation of 1.4 billion.

The science: How coronavirus spreads from person to person
Each infected person spreads to two or three others on average, researchers estimate. It spreads more easily than flu but less than measles, tuberculosis or some other respiratory diseases

The federal gov is falling the WMAT and not upholding treaty obligations. WMAT needs more resources, especially tests. Currently the positivity rate of the tribe is at a ridiculous 35%. Fox News is cover the WMAT but not ICT. Why???

This is really good information, but I'd love to see a follow-up article as things with Covid seem be coming out daily. It would be great to see a piece on the vaccine. As a small mobile auto repair facility in Anaheim, California, we've had to undertake masking procedures to ensure that our crew members making mobile mechanic calls in Anaheim or surrounding areas don't infect anybody should one of our employees be a carrier. So far we haven't had anybody issues. Keeping our fingers crossed. We do a temperature check every morning at our morning meeting and stress the use of masks and payment with exact cash or money transfer by phone so as to limit the contact between a local motorist with a mechanical problem and a worker.
