World Population (to allow calculation of world prevalence of COVID-19) :

OK. You know the drill. Here are the usual images, updated of course.

Prevalence - May 2 - graph





% Recovered - May 2, 2020



% Died - May 2, 2020




Actively ILL - 2 May, 2020


Putting it all together

We would like to see tis entire graphic turn GREEN - nothing but people who have recovered.  


A-D-R - May 2, 2020



Just a bit more

Let's use a selected indicator to rank the countries being followed. 



Prevalence - May 2


How long ago did this begin in each country?



Days of Infection - May 2



People do die of this. Otherwise, no one would care.



Deaths per million - May 2



Ranking the countries by rates of recovery, attracts our attention to certain countries. 


And away from others.



% Recovered per Day of Infection - May 1



How much testing is going on?

Countries ranked by tests per confirmed case.

How many tests are done to find the next positive case?



Tests per Confirmed Case - May 2, 2020



Quoting from yesterday ...


So it looks like the thing that helps the most with this SARS-CoV-2 thing, is to just wait it out.

To be quietly with one's self, and stay put. While those in the world outside, continue to make the usual noise. 


Not everyone seems made for quiet waiting. 


Whenever something seems urgent, and requires a trip to somewhere, think again. 





Time to continue your list of the positives arising from all of this. Here are my entries : 

  1. Less debate and argument; more Solidarity.
  2. Reduction in CO2 and greenhouse gases.
  3. Decide to just get up and go nowhere.
  4. Time for expression: write a poem, play some music.
  5. Notice: where I live, the move towards Spring is well under way (green and growing).
  6. Moments of humor, when laughing happens spontaneously. Even when alone.
  7. Flowers from the garden, placed in a vase as a reminder of life, each time I pass. Looking closely.
  8. Greeting the deer who come down in the morning to see how we're doing and where we've been.
  9. An opportunity still exists for taking a nice warm bath. And this day, no rush.
  10. Find even small improvements in a situation, and let them grow inside of yourself, thereby helping them to grow even more outside of yourself. That those actively ill are still increasing in number worldwide is true. That this rate of increase now seems to be diminishing, (57%) is also true and to be supported by doing all that we are currently doing (social distancing and hygiene) and not doing (grouping together).
  11. Thankful for all the suppliers who make shopping for food, still possible.
  12. Very grateful to all those who have participated so far in our questionnaire, guiding our work here.
  13. A noticeble quiet in our sourroundings.
  14. Bill collectors seem much less active.
  15. There are moments of mental lucidity. For example: I had already lived through some crappy periods in my life, but I think this one takes the cake.
  16. Thankful to not have to be on the front lines as this approaches. Praying for those who are.
  17. Centering : spending more time doing things that should make a difference. Less counting.
  18. "Hope springs eternal in the human breast."
  19. Distance may separate me physically from my family. But we are constantly with each other. That can never be confined.
  20. Grateful for all those who sell and deliver items purchased online. It's still possible. (But wipe the box with Clorox before opening! (Didn't use to do that) ...
  21. An increase in the numbers of moments of absolute silence.
  22. Math can be tedious. A times very revealing. And that's a positive.
  23. Sleeping. Solid as a rock.
  24. There seems to be an increased ability to listen. To others, but also to oneself.
  25. Land mines do not usually go off by themselves. You have to step on them. Stay isolated !
  26. Essential items are recognized more easily.
  27. Imagine if one day somebody appears and says: "You know, all this confinement stuff was not really necessary. All you had to do was ... " Couldn't you just punch a guy like that in the face?
  28. Returning to things ignored for too long (working in the quiet and smells of the greenhouse).
  29. Identifying more clearly, one's limits of patience.
  30. Actually comforted by being able to get away from crowds.
  31. Turning correct conclusions into correct action, and sometimes, correct non-action.
  32. Being able to identify the lemmings more clearly by their self-interests.
  33. "The brave men who fought here, have consecrated it far beyond our poor power to add or detract."
  34. It took distancing, to help us find more closeness to others. More similarities. Fewer differences.
  35. Much more time to rediscover things set aside long ago. (Example: The Beatle's White Album).
  36. Very grateful for indoor plumbing.
  37. Ease up. Taking a day off doesn't mean the world won't be there tomorrow.
  38. Some days, anxiety will creep up on you. When things are getting raw, it's that. Recognize it. And take that decision you've been putting off. Turn it into action. 
  39. Saying less. Listening more. Being more selective in one's listening. Tuning out noise.
  40. Conforted to see that Nature is getting along just fine, without my support.





Take a breath. Take another.


Can you remember a time when this song had not yet been composed?


Wow. Really? You're that old? Wow!




Now take another calming breath or two, and listen to this one.

Than you can go.
