  1. Maybe this will shed LIGHT on the hospital situation in each state. Check which states are prepared for emergencies and who fall behind. Some that are a little short on ICU easily have enough to cover with other beds they can convert, in several cases, so are not short at all. See a pattern, or not? https://covid19.healthdata.org/projections?fbclid=IwAR1LkiC25CT3YpAwPK24m_bNWg-dZ2aKq2XAFIEhh1x7SbCCtrOCZ2NhYNk
  2. I would kinda doubt it, what with all the requirements you must meet, plus the blood work and chest x-rays you must first take to your doctor. I think if you are very old and have severe symptoms, the doctors might certify you for testing. Of course, some doctors here seem to like money, so maybe arrangements could be made.
  3. Cal-o-Rex is great. 2 "D" batteries, last years. almost no gas usage.
  4. Try to wrap your head around this. Until there is an effective Covid-19 vaccine produced and given to you and everyone you come in contact with you will never be safe. Why? Because there are tons of asymptomatic carriers of Covid-19 walking among us who could infect everyone they come in contact with without even knowing they have the virus. (Copied from another Ex-pat Board).
  5. That is not true. You are not paying attention to facts here, but aren't you a US basher from another country? Then, that is par for you people that do that.
  6. Rarely do I find a working class Mexican that has any knowledge of this virus. Wife's brother (civil engineer) and wife(elementary teacher) know almost nothing. Very few Mexicans of working class ever listen to news and weather on tv, or read that in newspapers. They just live their lives.
  7. Actually, if I read this correctly, I am impressed that the US leads all reported in ICU beds, which is what seems to be of significance here. 29.3 per 100, 000 is a Lot of beds.
  8. He get off by seeing that it bothers you. He's not worth your time, so don't waste it on him.
  9. Coronavirus 'emergency'? Oregon police ask people to stop calling 911 because they ran out of toilet paper
  10. It's always your choice, but I believe that your area NOB was ill prepared(both local and state) and in initial denial at the beginning is why so many cases and deaths. I believe now they have caught up and things have quieted down considerably there. All areas and States NOB are not equally prepared to care for their citizens. With today's stats release, the US death rate is now under 2%, so that should show everyone that the US, because of fast actions, is getting a handle quickly on things. Still, those fewer deaths are older with underlying illness. Just older is not the main concern.
  11. Wonder how they think the CV gets into Mexico? Gto is having its 'rally" soon and there are basically entries from all over Europe, including Italy. The Coronavirus is just the flu, not the plague. Don't let your FEAR destroy the economy. Wash your hands and LIVE YOUR LIFE.
  12. I found this online. Mexico is not testing for covid and therefore has a low number of cases. I even read somewhere that there are only 3 hospitals certified to test. Below from the Puerto Vallarta News. There was a similar article in the Mexico News Daily this week also. We all know how the Mexican bureaucracy can be very frustrating to say the least. When something changes it can be years before every procedure is decided upon. Now with the upheaval in IMSS and Seguro Populare, it is a safe bet that the medical system is in shambles. It is likely in no way capable to deal with covid. Of course, this effects private doctors too. The Mexican Health Ministry has confirmed that less than 300 people have been tested for the coronavirus since February 8, when the first case was announced. As of today, Mexico has only confirmed 8 cases of the pandemic. “I’m worried about the lack of diagnostic testing,” said Francisco Moreno, infectious disease specialist and head of Internal Medicine at ABC Hospital in Mexico City. “If Mexico has undetected cases circulating, the spread of the disease is going to be brutal.” At the same time, Mexico has seen an increase in deaths being contributed to seasonal influenza, which without testing could be misdiagnosed due to the similarities between influenza and the coronavirus.Mexico’s President has continued to reassure people, “We have the best experts on the matter. We still have the same number of cases and luckily there’s been no loss of life. We’re not hiding information from the population.” Moreno suggested that Mexico is waiting for the pandemic to create problems before addressing the spread. Currently, Mexico is only allowing testing for people who have known direct contact with the 8 confirmed cases in Mexico or recent travels to high-risk areas. “It’s likely that they’ve missed some cases and will continue to do so if they don’t increase testing,” says Alejandro Macias, the former national commissioner for influenza in Mexico during the H1N1 outbreak. The government of Mexico has misled the public about the risks and possible exposure, including denying a passenger on a Princess Cruise that tested positive had visited Mexico, despite passenger logs. The daily press briefings with Mexico’s President include accusations that conservatives are using the coronavirus to end his presidency. Mexico has successfully kept the coronavirus numbers low, not through prevention, but through a lack of testing driven by politics and not the health of the public.
  13. Would you be kind enough to tell the source online for the Chapala Governments and state of Jalisco Plans for what those who suspect they may have contacted the virus should do and how to seek help. Thank you.

    Evidently you haven't lived in Mexico very long. All restaurants recycle Everything you leave on the table, whether you have touched it, smelled it, sampled it, sneezed on it, dropped it on the floor, etc. Just don't think about it and enjoy yourself. After a few years, your system will get used to it and build up a "mexican type" resistance. Welcome to Mexico !
  16. I think it is the fault of the US President and his administration. They probably are selling lots of surplus high powered arms to these cartels. If not, must be the previous administration, where everyone's son is protected from everything.
  17. 120 Years…. an interesting and funny read. https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2014/08/120_years_of_climate_scares.html?fbclid=IwAR1mwNooEkYBn7osgB6Y2E58xJtQhzbAQZlvPPjdnXOljgMEgAIrCW8k9d0#.XZSdZ6u6Ots.facebook
  18. I don't know, ask mudgirl, as you "conveniently" overlooked that. You people need professional help, just sayin.
  19. geeser- there's no point arguing or pointing out the flaws in climate changers' thinkings or beliefs. If they wish to display their ignorance on public forums, the only people they are hurting are themselves. They are best left ignored.
  20. What did people use where What did people use where you came from? Surely the thieves,robbers, etc. were just as bad, or worse in your area there ?
  21. From the way I read your comments, looks like she is "spot on" with her observations. Caught you with your panties down and now you are again trying to weasel out of it by blaming her. Man up sometimes and stop being a child that can't always have his way.
