Things you might need
if you get Coronavirus:

 

 

TRANSMISSION RATE TRACKING (warns of future outbreaks)

 

 

ECONOMIC RECOVERY POTENTIAL

 

SEASONALITY  - POPULATION – Chance of Dying

 

TRAVEL ADVISORY (MODERATE RECOVERY)

Pulse Oximeter – People do not realize they are not getting enough oxygen.  They don’t struggle to breathe.  But blood oxygen plummets into low 80s or 70s and they are too far gone before seeking help.  Read reviews and get one that is reliable and accurate.

These are available in most drug stores, or by mail order:

·         Low priced, good review

 

Also useful at high altitude, if you have pneumonia, etc.

 

MORTALITY TREND

 

 

 

MODERATELY PACED UNLOCK – deaths & economic cost (2nd line)

 

 

 

Non-contact temperature gun – This device is the modern way to take anyone’s temperature.  Fast and if you get a good one, accurate.

Also available in most drug stores, or by mail order: 

·         Lowest priced 5-star review we could find

 

 

SLOW UNLOCK (vaccine starting Dec. 1, 2020)

 

 

SLOW UNLOCK (vaccine starting April 1, 2021)

 

Humidifier – COVID-19 spreads much faster in low humidity.  If you live in a desert, or a cold climate where heating reduces humidity, and someone in your household is sick, you’ve probably already thought of wearing masks and gloves.  But did you think if using a humidifier?  Be sure to get a good one.

Usually available in department or discount stores, mail order:

This one has a 5-star rating, for large rooms, quiet, as low a price as any (I just bought one, in winter may sell out)

SUMMARY

 

·         Los Angeles seems to be stable.

·         California is locked so tight a rebound is inevitable, but Los Angeles is in much better shape than the state.  Although the case ratio is low (test positivity 9%, estimated case ratio 8.7) there have been so many cases that around 9% of LA is already infected or immune, thus the high positivity.  This gives a lot more future flexibility in unlock, and protects against rebound.

·         A series of very small steps leaves California nearly locked down, deaths lower, but also nearly rebound-proof IF there is an EARLY vaccine.

·         Mortality is trending down rapidly.  Our low recommended caseload postpones most cases until treatment is better.

·         If the vaccine is late, 75% of Californians get COVID.  But LA doesn’t really care.  Only 15% percent will suffer from a late vaccine rebound.

·         Travel risk is moderate in summer and fall (better than Texas), improving in winter in our scenario (rebounding otherwise!).

·         LA compares similarly to other high population counties (at left).  Though none have as low a case ratio.  Lower population counties have stayed locked too tight and will suffer rebounds.

·         Recommendation:  MODERATE RECOVERY.
