    California could start testing thousands of people for COVID-19 as early as next week Excerpts from this link:

    California could have thousands of more test kits and multiple new laboratories up and running to detect the virus associated with the COVID-19 infection as soon as next week, Gov. Gavin Newson said during a Thursday press conference.

    The state has 8,227 test kits from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, but it can only use a fraction of them because most are missing a compound and chemicals needed to complete the tests, he said. California isn't alone. Other states have the same issue.

    "I am surprised that this is not more of a national conversation," Newsom said. "It's like going to the store to purchase a printer but forgetting to purchase the ink."​

    Declaration of National Emergencies:

    Now that the US President has declared a National Emergency, those US living NRI desi's who had known the 1975 National Emergency in India might wonder how different is the national emergency in USA is, and whether or not there is a similar National Emergency in India now.
    The Emergency (India) - Wikipedia

    The current US National Emergency declaration gives the executive (Governors and the President) spending powers that are generally reserved for the congressional bodies in both the states and the federal government. That is all there is to it. Civil rights of citizens is preserved during such national emergencies. US resident people may recall the other National Emergency that Trump had declared, and the newspapers called it "The Wall Emergency" -- when the Congress-allocated defense department funding was diverted to build the wall on the southern border with Mexico. Naitonal emergencies may also go on to provide expensive, tax payer funded, joke materials to TV hosts.

    US government is sending out letters to their foreign resident citizens -- including government, military and other NGO groups -- to prepare a "Go-Bag" and keep in the ready, if their local governments were to impose restrictions on their movement for a few weeks, to put them in isolation or quarantine.

    "......go-bags” for themselves and family members, containing ample prescription medication(s), cash in local money, mobile phone chargers, and copies of any vital documents.Personnel are also advised to consider supplementing their emergency food and prescription medications to cover a period of at least 14 days without resupply. You are encouraged to maintain an emergency supply of potable water for at least three days. "

    Such go-bag thoughts/preparations would be nostalgic for mothers who had experienced hospital births.

    Dr. Campbell is saying ( in the description on Italy situation) that Fever Reducing medicines (aspirin, tylenol, Ibuprofen and such antipyretics) should not be given without consulting a doctor and verifying whether or not the illness is Covid-19 caused.

    More information on Anti Inflammatory Drugs for fever....
    Avoid the usual OTC drugs like Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Advil etc. etc.. that we take for fevers, even when you feel absolutely awful. When the temperature is up, the body's immune system has done that to fight off whatever infection that is bothering the system.

    There is a post from an Indian doctor who is posted in Wuhan for fighting Coronavirus indicating that the size of this virus is 400-500nm diameter, so any normal mask (not just the N95 feature) should be able to filter it out. When the droplet drops out of anyone's mouth, it will move at least 10 feet before it drops to the ground. On the metal surface, it will live for at least 12 hours and in fabric, it can remain active for 6-12 hours. The virus dies in 30-35 degrees as it is not heat resistant and drinking hot water helps. I just wanted to validate all the above information.
