      F.D.A. Halts Coronavirus Testing Program Backed by Bill Gates

      The program allows people in the Seattle area to easily take a coronavirus test at home. Researchers say such testing is essential for future monitoring of the virus.

        Macao has two cases left. (The last new case on April 8.) Hong Kong has 27 active cases, and Taiwan has 44.
        These are countries that didn't trust China or the numbers put out by China. From SARS the mantra "once bitten, twice shy" was there guiding principle. They all activated their pandemic plans back in January.

        NZ has done pretty well as we also reacted quite quickly. But if we had reacted as quickly as HK. Cambodia etc, we would have done really well.

            This is just bizarre. I know someone who has been keeping in touch with the researchers, and it sounds like they were totally blindsided by this.

              How does what they wrote obscure or cloud the geography?

                Mapping NYC deaths as a pale sphere extending from Canada to north Carolina, from Ohio to off the continental shelf does nothing to communicate the intensity and location of this plague. It clouds and obscures a maps goal: to communicate accurate information, not mislead the naive reader.

                    Are we looking at the same map? I don't see that "pale sphere" extending anywhere near Canada or North Carolina, or Ohio.

                        Chinese officials have quarantined 8,000 people in the country’s northeast.

                        Officials concerned about a virus resurgence have quarantined 8,000 people and reintroduced lockdown measures in northeastern China, even as other parts of the country further relax restrictions.

                          I make it Delaware to New Hampshire and it doesn't actually obscure what's underneath.

                            like I said above, ideas of the importance of widespread testing fall on deaf ears
