  1. Now this is really interesting: https://healthweather.us/?mode=Trends
  2. This would depend on many different variables. There's no way to give an answer. If you wear one of these when you play, it will definitely go faster:
  3. This site has good info as far as total numbers but more importantly new cases and deaths per day. Even goes down to county level. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/coronavirus-us-cases.html
  4. If I were in your situation, I'd return it.
  5. Wow, that's really horrible. Obviously great news that nobody was injured. Also nice that your gear was spared. I think about things like this and it scares the crap out of me. Can't imagine what it's like to live it. Sounds like you're handling it as good as anyone could hope. Good luck.
  6. This is what they recommended: https://gluboost.com/product/masterglu-thin-general-use-ultra-pure-high-performance-ca-adhesive/ Good luck with it.
  7. I used one of these products: https://gluboost.com/ Can't remember which one right now but I e-mailed them and told them what i wanted to use it for and they gave me a specific recommendation. I'm at work now but when I get home i'll let you know which one it is. You want a fairly low viscosity so it flows into the filling material easily. I filled the slot with the bone "dust". I only loosely packed it so it would flow in around all the dust, which it did very nicely. I over filled them slightly so I had to file the filled areas down even with the rest of the nut. When I was done with that I could hardly tell where the original slots were. Oh, I did mark the position of the slots on the sides of the nut so I was sure to refile in the same place. Anyway, it left me with a very hard, hopefully durable surface.
  8. I've never replaced a nut before either. But, my 339 did have a nut with the E, A and D strings cut too deep. The E and A were the worst. I figured it couldn't hurt to try the super glue method. I ground up some bone from a blank, filled the slots with that then just a drop of thin super glue. Then refiled the slots. Worked out great. I don't know what problems you have with your nut but, if that would help it may be worth a try.
  9. Apparently nobody wants to hear it but if you look at the percentage of positive tests you will see that it is going down every day: https://www.politico.com/interactives/2020/coronavirus-testing-by-state-chart-of-new-cases/ Perspective is important too. Look at these number for Influenza this season: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/preliminary-in-season-estimates.htm
  10. This is a nice summary of where we are so far. If you scroll down you can see they have data from every state in the US for numbers tested and numbers positive. https://www.politico.com/interactives/2020/coronavirus-testing-by-state-chart-of-new-cases/
  11. Some more numbers from Oregon from yesterday. So far 7269 total tested and 6953 are negative. That's 95% negative which is great. Especially because that is not a random sample from the general population. We are limiting testing to only people felt to be at high risk for actually having the infection. That's because we don't have enough testing capacity in terms of tests and PPE to test everyone. I think that's basically what's being done nationwide. The national numbers are about 85% negative which is still pretty good.
  12. The problem with all viruses is that they kill some people. With H1N1 in 2009 it was healthy young kids. There are variations every year with seasonal Influenza. With Covid it's mainly older sicker people and some young people too. The point is that overall the mortality of this virus seems low. It also seems that large segments of the population get exposed and infected but never develop any symptoms or illness. (https://spectator.us/half-uk-population-already-coronavirus/) The problem with the current information age is that in a case like this you have raw data being fed 24/7 real time to the public who can't interpret that data. 3.2 million people filed for unemployment here in the US last week. That's going to go way up. Health cares workers are being attacked due to shut downs. http://camdennewjournal.com/article/health-workers-reminded-to-remove-ids-after-work-following-reports-of-muggings And just now doomsday predictions revised: https://dailycaller.com/2020/03/26/neil-ferguson-coronavirus-imperial-college-doomsday/ I'm not saying it's not bad. I'm not saying that sick and at risk people shouldn't stay home. The current "15 days to slow the spread" rules are completely appropriate. Widespread and prolonged shutdowns are harming people too.
  13. Here it is. "The scientists found that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) was detectable in aerosols for up to three hours, up to four hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel. " https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/new-coronavirus-stable-hours-surfaces
  14. I'd go back and find the animal that transmitted Covid-19 to the first human kill it and incinerate it.
