An expert panel guiding Japan's coronavirus response may advise a relaxation of controls in regions that have not seen outbreaks, broadcaster NHK reported on Thursday, as Hokkaido prepared to end its state of emergency.The infectious disease experts, due to meet Thursday evening, were expected to recommend controls stay in place in worst-affected regions, while elsewhere schools could be re-opened and there could be a resumption of sporting events, the report said. The governor of Hokkaido, the prefecture with the highest number of infections, said his administration was scaling back its response to the outbreak, ending the emergency on Thursday to move to a new phase."We will end the emergency declaration as scheduled on March 19 and from the 20th move to a new stage to overcome the crisis of coronavirus infections," Hokkaido governor Naomichi Suzuki told reporters on Wednesday. Hokkaido had seen 154 infections as of Wednesday. Japan overall has had 923 cases and 32 deaths, according to the latest NHK tally. Among Japan's 47 prefectures, 22 have had fewer than 5 coronavirus cases, according to health ministry data.

Impressive, they seem to be on the other side of the curve. I see Wuhan has reported 0 new cases today, seems the timeline is more like 2 months with containment.

I don't trust any data coming from China.

Yesterday ended up being a little rough. The fever and chest pain got a lot worse in the later hours of the evening. Some nausea and headaches set in. Ended up getting out of bed through the night to vomit. I woke  up today with my symptoms feeling  more like they did mid-day yesterday, which is unpleasant but definitely manageable. I'm hoping last night was the worst of it. 

I get that. I know I'll more than likely beat this (if it is COVID that I have) on my own at home, but I'm more concerned with how I could've spread it. 

Good luck and get well soon.

I'm with ya, I don't trust China either. Maybe an analysis from Gates might change your mind about time-frame:

NHK news which is like the BBC or CBC post the daily infections   Mid Feb without gov't prodding poeple really seemed to take it seriously.  The Diamond Princess and its miserable handling really woke everyone up.   By the end of Feb. schools and major events were stopped.   So it is about a month and half about since people started to understand the issues and take responsible action.  So I Canada can slow it down or spread it out so to speak than a similar time frame is perhaps doable - lets hope so.  Korea and Vietnam seem to be quite stable.

Find an appropriate height and sturdy tree branch (or similar) to do pull-ups for back. Push ups for chest. Easy.

I am closer to 300 than 200 Idk if a branch is gonna hold me.

For your chest do regular push ups, incline push ups, elevated push ups, gorilla push ups and single leg push ups.  You can also do dips.  Finish off with some chest stretches.  This routine will work every chest muscle. 

 

For your back you can start with hip hinge then progress to reverse snow angels, locust, bird dog (from yoga pose), and thoracic rotation.  This routine will work every back muscle.

 

These are great exercises for chest and back, even for a professional hockey player...  :)

I like me heavy lifts though. Oh well. Will have to improvise for the next few weeks at least.

I can see douchebagness in unemployment and misery starting to kick it back to the dark ages.

 

Hopefully it doesn’t get out of hand.

Anyone else's hands dry, cracked, and raw as hell from the constant washing and scrubbing?

Wuhan had extreme measures in place including barely having people on the streets. People go out in biohazard suits and masks with goggles. What is happening here is not nearly as restrictive as Wuhan so I doubt 2 months would do the trick

The virus is in your system for 21 days. Can live on a surface for 7 day. So if my math is correct if everyone stayed in their house for 30 days there will be no more Coronavirus to infect anyone with. Unless I'm missing something

I'm not a doctor but heres my thought to debunk this. 

 

You and your family of 4 stay at home for 30 days. Let's say you have it on day one. Your infect your wife on day 10. Your wife infects one of your children on day 17. Your child infects your other child on day 18. 

 

You're probably good to go after the initial 30 days. Your wife is only on day 20 of quarantine since infection. Maybe good to go. Your children are only on day 13 and 12 of quarantine after infection.  Not good. 

 

All without showing symptoms. Then everyone stretches their legs and begins to socialize and we're back at square 1.

 

I'd love to be wrong here so if someone has more insite please let me know.

No you are correct I believe. However if everyone stayed home and took extra precautions to stay away from one another and wash your hands it should be fine. 90% of families dont have it so if a certain household does need to quarantine a bit longer I'm sure people could lend a helping hand and deliver food and supplies to help them out. It's a time to come together and do something about it. Theres too many people that literally think it's a joke

Yeah it's hard to point fingers because everyone has a point where they become worried. For me it was Caesars casino in my city. Once that shut down I became a believer. For some people it was the border. For others it will be the  collapse of society. 

 

I dont like to put blame because I'm sure there was someone freaking out in december and I did not care till like 2 weeks ago lol.

I didnt care until they took away sports lol

 

It's not the end of the world type virus, but to some people it will be. It's those people that you have to worry about when your going out, not constantly washing your hands, etc. Some people think oh I'll be fine. Yea it's most likely true, but will their grandparents? Their friend that they infect do they have asthma? What if they infect their grandparents?

 

I never thought I'd see the world shut down like it is. Its deffiently some strange times. While this is going on theres still a potential WW3 brewing with Iran, and theres a big meteor passing by next month. I'm expecting the zombie apocalypse in a couple months, and the end of the world on DEC. 21 2020 (8 years late)

Everyone is skeptical of Chinese data. But I do trust Apple when they say we are opening all our stores in China, When Starbucks says we have re-opened our outlets in Wuhan. You can't fake factories re-opening. Materials go in, product comes out. People come in and out for their shifts. You can see that. You can't fake it.
