    Medicare is now covering coronavirus tests. This is great news, since the disease strikes the elderly the hardest.

    You may be hearing about the coronavirus (officially called 2019-novel coronavirus or COVID-19) in the news. While there isn’t a vaccine yet, Medicare is still here to help. Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers a test to see if you have coronavirus. This test is covered when your doctor or other health care provider orders it, if you got the test on or after February 4, 2020.

    You usually pay nothing for Medicare-covered clinical diagnostic laboratory tests. Note: Your provider will need to wait until after April 1, 2020 to be able to submit a claim to Medicare for this test.

    To prevent the spread of this illness or other illnesses including the flu, here are some tips to follow:
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water
    • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze
    • Stay home when you’re sick
    • See your doctor if you think you’re ill



    For more information on the coronavirus, please visit the Centers for Disease Control website.

      In a few weeks, we are going to find out that some company made 5000% profit on those kits.

      I hope they at least work.

          Just had an awesome idea on how to watch movies and not have to worry about morons that talk to much during the movie. While standing in line to get a ticket talk loudly about which movie I plan to see and snort chilly powder. All the coughing and sneezing will clear the place out!!

            Europe doesn't look good. Lots of countries with high numbers.


            USA has lots of cases across the country but not many total infected. When they start doing testing in the next week I suspect the cases will rise by thousands pretty quickly.

              Our single memo has amounted to something like "we're on it!"

                I'm hearing some disconcerting rumblings from epidemiologists that the mortality rate is much higher than what is being currently reported... possibly 30%, and that states & media are keeping it quiet to avoid panic. Sounds like it's expected to get worse before the summer and then get better for a bit, then have it's peak as we go into next flu season... also sounds like vaccines are still a year away. Hopefully that's not true, but I have it from some pretty credible sources.

                Seriously, 30% mortality gets us into the territory of "look to your left, look to your right"... super scary stuff.

                  First case recorded in Lexington KY today. More expected due to the patients high exposure. Lexington is a hour drive from my house so been knowing y'all. Maybe I'll send some surprise packages to everyone who's screwed me over if I get infected.

                    This sounds like scaremongering. No one could keep something like that a secret given that the whole world is experiencing the same thing.

                        But I don't see how you could successfully hide 30% mortality in this day and age (even in China)

                            Study of 72,000 COVID-19 patients finds 2.3% death rate


                            we have had 1 or 2 deaths other than from the ones from the washington nursing home

                            it might be that high (30%)in any nursing home for already very ill people

                                No way you could hide 30%. And even then its a percentage of those who get sick not the exposure rate.

                                Lots of bogus info floating out there and even Facebook has said it is busy cleaning up its service to stop the fearmongering.

                                        A leaked presentation reveals the document US hospitals are using to prepare for a major coronavirus outbreak. It estimates 96 million US coronavirus cases and 480,000 deaths.

                                            The estimates appear to be a bit conservative.

                                            For example

                                            death rate 0.5%, early estimates were 1-2% in china, the WHO upped that to 3.4% march 3rd. They won't get a true number until it's all well and over worldwide however, so expect it to fluctuate up or down.

                                            They say 1-2% of cases will need ICU beds. Italy yesterday said 10% of their cases need ICU.

                                                A quarter of the population is in lockdown as Italy takes drastic action to control Covid-19.


                                                Northern Italy to 'quarantine 16 million people'

                                                Italy is set to lock down at least 16 million people in the region of Lombardy and in 11 other provinces in the north and east of the country.

                                                The mandatory quarantine will last until early April.

                                                The dramatic escalation in the country's efforts to contain the new deadly coronavirus will close gyms, pools, museums and ski resorts.

                                                Italy is Europe's worst-hit country and reported a steep rise in virus infections on Saturday.

                                                The new measures, which also apply to financial centre Milan and tourist hotspot Venice, could take effect as early as Sunday and will last until 3 April.

                                                  Locking things down is the way to go. China did it and their cases have drastically reduced. Yes it's not good to lock things down for ~1-2 months, but it beats the alternative.

                                                                Well Ars has a pretty in depth article out on this but relies very heavily on data from China so there's that caveat. Still it confirms that the panic buying of water doesn't make sense as it is unlikely this thing will damage water infrastructure like a hurricane might. All the other stuff you buy because if you do get it you'll be stuck at home for 2 weeks and can't get out and that's if you get sick and can get tested (which according to the article is getting easier now that the test kits got fixed; which also means expect the number of infected to skyrocket as more people get tested).

They reported deaths in some cases under an hour of showing symptoms which means a gross immune response and inflammation that probably drowned them in their own fluids and/or strangled their airways. Killed by their own immune system. Think Im gonna see about some stronger anti histamines and start taking them regularly along with the Zinc and Vit D that I take seasonally. Maybe some adrenaline shots as well.

                                                                                I think what we should be hoping for is that once you clear COVID-19, that there is some lasting immunity to the virus (well, before it inevitably mutates... hopefully to a less virulent strain).

                                                                                What we are seeing here is how the common cold gets passed around the globe. It's just that no one focuses on the common cold as everyone inevitably gets it and death is not a likely outcome.

                                                                                Most people are going to get COVID-19. May won't even realize as they'll clear it like the common cold. We are beyond the point of containing it.
