Up to 4,000 #COVID-19 patients are being treated with hydroxychloroquine

This is sort of a rushed study, but if it looks good, it may be put into general use as another way to reduce the death toll of #2019-nCoV / #SARS-CoV-2 #coronavirus disease.

Young local folks decided to take over a piece of disused government-owned land to start a guerrilla community garden to feed the homeless and others hard hit by this #covid19 crisis, like indigenous folks currently blockading a construction site.
In a couple of days, they managed to set up two huge garden beds. Some of the people working on it have zero savings. It’s called #GrowingForward. This is 100 metres down the road.

In this crisis, some people buy more guns. Others start food #gardens. [www redlandsdailyfacts com]

The people whose backyard borders my backyard had a party last night, with guests that I've never seen there before. The reason I noticed is because they were loud for a while, and because their barbecue grill had orange flames shooting up between two and almost three feet high.

I don't know if it was "we're not afraid of #COVID-19, it is just a flu" or something they'd previously scheduled and not thought about cancelling.
Finally they say this?

One of my brothers works in PubHealth. He said that they’ve had to pull their staff off of #HIV / #AIDS prevention to focus on #coronavirus disease prevention.

They’ve got people that were in war-torn African nations during #Ebola outbreaks, where either the disease or the combatants could take one’s life at any time, but they are more frightened about #COVID-19 than either Ebola or #war.
I don’t know where I saw this link ( ), but it is interesting. 26 days until #California’s projected peak of daily #COVID-19 deaths (122/day); 14 days until #USA’s projected peak (2607/day).
