    Default Coronvirus Map produced by IBM

    As you probably know, Jeff Masters and the other founding members of Weather Underground sold the platform to IBM last year. There are some things I don't like about the WU service now, but they are beginning to experiment with delivering other sorts of data.

    One of these tools is the Coronvirus Map and if you scroll down to a reasonable level, you can certainly see areas of the USA where lack of testing kits (and other factors) show considerable less infection than others.

    It's mostly a gimmick for now -- but still interesting if you want play around with it.

    My county (Jasper) has a population of 120k, 10 cases, no deaths. The neighboring county (Newton), population 60k, 6 cases, no deaths. I believe the city of Joplin, population 50k, only has 2 cases. Most of Joplin is in Jasper, parts are in Newton.

    Exclamation Low by at least 7%

    Looking at Clark County (Las Vegas, Nevada) the UW site data is not accurate or up to date.

    The UA map shows it was updated as of 04/09/20 and reports:
    1878 Confirmed Cases and 65 deaths.


    But the data provided current as of yesterday morning (04/08) it was:

    Confirmed Cases: 2,009
    Deaths: 71


    So, take the UA data with a grain of salt!

    Default Walking and Running and risks from COVID-19

    New Studies about the risk of exercising outside...

    From the executive study of a report from the Netherlands:
    Based on the simulations and data, the team suggests that individuals who are walking outdoors should maintain a minimum of four meters (13 feet) of separation. Runners and casual bikers should try to stay at least 10 meters apart (33 feet), and fast cyclists should attempt to remain at least 20 meters (66 feet) from others using the same trails. The researchers also note that avoiding the direct path of the person in front of you is vital, even when maintaining these distances.
    More information here.

    Default What about just driving around town?

    The weather in Phoenix is gorgeous right now, perfect spring temperatures, but when I'm driving around town, especially at stop lights, I keep my windows rolled up tight, and I leave my AC on the setting that recirculates the air in my vehicle, rather than bringing in fresh air from the outside. It's an airborne virus. If somebody upwind from you sneezes or coughs, even at a distance, that nice cool breeze could be deadly. I hate it. I mean, I really, really hate it--but if you venture out into the world for any reason, you really can't be too careful!

    Default Threats are real there too

    And we know that the virus can live on metal and plastic for a number of days, so it could "live" inside the air ducts of the car.

    Yup - I'm running Rosetta too. The client doesn't give much detail about what's going on unless you run the locally-hosted web page that gives details about what's being done.

  10. Default Traveling though Utah?

    Drivers entering Utah will need to complete an online travel declaration form. I wonder if other states will follow.
