Things you might need
if you get Coronavirus:










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.






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)






Peru is likely stable.

Mortality is trending normally. 

Peru has little seasonality factor which makes them compare unfavorable to northern hemisphere countries currently getting a break from summer.

Without seasonal perturbation what happens in Peru is completely up to Peruvians.

There is moderate travel risk now through fall.  However, it is not as bad as Texas where I live.

IHME projection at left does not seem to go past summer provides no projection for fall.  However, from this chart we take it that Peru has a higher than normal case ratio, which we’ve used in our projection

Recommendation:  MODERATE RECOVERY.  Peru is just now entering the period of sufficient lockdown to get the transmission rate below 1.0 (see above left).  It probably has a lot of undocumented cases and so a high degree of immunity.  We project that by July they can unlock substantially and enjoy economic recovery. 

It seems unlikely Peru will need a re-lock since they aren’t seasonal.  But they probably shouldn’t unlock further than we’ve indicated until the infection is abating and vaccinations begin, perhaps March 1, 2021.
