Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards issued a statewide "stay at home" order at a Sunday afternoon press conference, requiring Louisiana residents to shelter in place unless going out for essential tasks effective until April 12 in hopes of stanching the “community spread” of COVID-19.



Louisiana has the fastest growth rate of confirmed cases in the world, Edwards said, citing a University of Louisiana at Lafayette study.

“This is why it matters,” Edwards said. "If we want to flatten the curve, we have to take action today."

Louisiana ranks third in per capita cases behind New York and Washington State. As of the time of the press conference, state labs had tested 1,385 people and commercial labs had made 2,113 tests.

I flew back to work today; I wouldn't have minded being at home with the wife and dogs.

PLEASE follow these directions. I pretty much trust everyone here. Y'all all seem pretty intelligent (about most things ). But share this advice with others. This is very serious.

Re: Louisiana issues statewide stay-at-home order to combat coronavirus spread

If political hacks like Bel Edwards would stay home and stop interfering with people's lives, that would work out great.

This is the most over-hyped, fear induced, political "crisis" of all time. Suddenly, everyone is worried about death rates, as they have ignored the common flu for about a century, killing far more people. And as people have fought vigorously to protect the "sanctity" of women's rights by sanctioning the murders of millions of babies, so that poor little miss "all about me" can do her own thing, NOW human life is sacred? And our act of "compassion" is to shut down the world, sending millions into financial hell?

There is taking precautions, and then there is just being absurdly over-reactive.

You do realize that this virus, while less deadly than the common flu to some, is FAR more virulent and contagious on every level, right? Casual contact with surfaces hours, and longer, later touched by infected individuals can lead to contraction of the virus. Even if you you are personally in danger, anyone you contact for the next few weeks can become infected and die. Your visit with grandma may be deadly.

Do not under react.

While the virus probably can be spread through surfaces and hand to hand contact, I think we are overreacting to that aspect of it. These cases are probably very rare in comparison to just breathing the virus in. There are theories that it can spread through the protein receptors in the eyes, maybe if you stuck your fingers directly into you nose... for the most part it is an overcompensation for just staying away from people. Continuing washing hands is probably a good practice, but I doubt it will make significant strides in slowing down the virus.

There is no reliable data to suggest what you are saying. Because it's a new virus, and it wasn't recognized for some time, we don't have any way of knowing the actual rate of death per case, much less do we know how many have come in contact with it to say how many were exposed, and what percentage of those who were subsequently infected. What we DO know is that the death rate continues to drop as more people are tested and on record.

And because people don't generally freak out about the flu, because we're used to it, there is likely a HIGH percentage of people who've gotten the flu, and never went to the doctor to report it. I've had it twice, both times I ended up relapsing, and I didn't go to the hospital either time. But with coronavirus hysteria? People get hot flashes and they are running to the doctor.

You just can't quantify these things without being able to take into account the massive contextual differences.

It is a hard thing to quantify because you end up having stratified infections. The more likely to be infected are the ones that are most likely to die. There are other factors though(millennial and younger people being more likely to go out etc). There is a lot of evidence that a population wide infection would result in a death rate under 1%. The real issue with this is I'm not convinced that you can actually stop it, so how to solve it is a bit trick. When they talk about flattening the curve, it is a bit misleading as they make it sound as though they are limiting the number of cases, but likely it is just prolonging cases. Once China goes back outside again, there is a high probably of a second wave. So how to handle this is a very complicated thing. Are we going to do this for 18 months?

Avoid contact. Stay at home or in areas void of contact like parks or such. The common flu, while more deadly, has a proven vaccine regime that the majority of people partake. This virus is totally us protected. There is no comparison. Stay at home. Act as if you have the virus and you do not want other to catch it even if you don't like them.

Call your doctor. Do not GO to your doctor if you have symptoms. Do not visit anyone. Keep distance. This is very serious, yet can be controlled with caution.

Re: Louisiana issues statewide stay-at-home order to combat coronavirus spread

Wish they would just let it run its course. Protect and isolate the at risk, quarantine the sick and save the hospital space for the people with preexisting conditions. There’s no cure anyway and those with strong immune systems can recover at home.
Yes it will spread and yes there will be more deaths but it will pass much quicker.
All this being said it’s not the direction the powers that be chose to go so listen and do what they are saying.
