Hey solar power Twitter...
Our household got a new inverter which shows us input/output via wifi (so yeah, I'm staring at it constantly)
When we turn everything off (still wifi & maybe 3 small standby devices) there still seems to be a ~500W from somewhere.
Where, how?
Thanks for the many answers. Will try a number of things tomorrow. There is also a 10min or so lag between action and the change showing up on the readout-perhaps I didn't wait long enough.
Okay, got it down to about 100-200W from small individual items; a list of small things, some of which we will get better at turning off at the wall 🙄
Water heater wasn't off in previous testing + there was a lag in the App's reporting. Isolation at fusebox to happen next.
So we're probably all good.

Interesting to note...
⚡TV/DVD/HDR=33W on standby
⚡Xbox 16W
⚡Desktop HDDs 19W
⚡Modem/repeaters each about 5-10W
⚡Anything dumb on a powerpoint that's on 0.5W

The new version as promised (ver2).
It adds vaccines (at the end because gen1 won't simply fix everything) & tracing has been combined with the fast & sensitive testing slice.
I've combined hand & surface cleaning.
Constructive feedback welcome.
Version 2 also adds a slice for isolation & quarantine. The new Government Comms (includes education) & support slice reflect how essential these are to all of these interventions (especially if you're going into Iso & your livelihood is at risk) succeeding
I haven't added a "lockdown" slice although I don't see any other way to put the brakes on widespread & exponential rises in cases & hospitalizations without acknowledging that no intervention will lead to more deaths than lockdowns (unless there are studies that show otherwise?)

An interesting comparison between comments about Madrid on "herd immunity" in an article in June...& numbers today... ImageImageImage
I don't mean to belittle the suffering & harm occurring in Spain here - this is solely to point out how misleading it can be to read "most affected regions like Madrid may be close to reaching herd immunity" (quantamagazine.org/the-tricky-mat…)
There is clearly a new wave ripping through Madrid; which is in a state of emergenecy. And while deaths are not (yet) near the levels they were in Peak1 (great news), that may or may not change with time. Nonetheless, Madrid has more illness now than it had during Peak1 ImageImageImage

A little early in the year, nonetheless, there are fewer flu(+) samples around in the US than there were this time (Wk40) in 2019

Antiviral activity of an alcoholic hand disinfectant. Comparison of the in vitro suspension test with in vivo experiments on hands, and on individual fingertips.
[from 1983] sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
"The significance of 'spontaneous decay', in our view, is that it marks a qualitative difference between the 'reality' of hand disinfection and its model, the suspension test.
It also underlines the difference between enveloped and naked viruses in...
..the hand disinfection situation"

"As to the cause of 'spontaneous decay', one may speculate that the chemical milieu of the skin surface, e.g., pH or fatty acids, contributed to inactivating virions, predominantly those with a lipid-containing envelope.
In addition,..

Fears about spreading COVID-19 at the beach 'overblown'
Outdoors is better than indoors when considering the risk of infection by SARS-CoV-2.
Dilution of aerosols outdoors & their removal via wind occurs much more easily outdoors than in a closed room especially if that room has no air filtration or active air exchange.
*But* ...
...that doesn't mean proximity to an infected person & time exposed to them aren't still really important.
We need to keep our distance from others who may be infected and not spend too long indoors or near those outside our "bubbles".

"Get a test when sick, and isolate while you await your result"
There's something missing from this message and it's
"*stay* isolated, even if your SARS-CoV-2 test is negative because you're still sick with *something* infectious!"
I don't want it. Others don't want it.
I really feel like this part of the message needs to be stressed otherwise I don't think we're going to learn from the benefits of adopting masks in traditionally mask-phobic countries.
If not, we're just going to stumble back into flu season (also RSV, MPV etc) deaths and
hospitalizations because somehow they're..."okay" deaths? But that was a pandemic! Seasonal illness & death is just 'normal', silly.
..then we're all idiots!
We've shown we *can* reduce morbidity & mortality due to other viruses, not just SARS-CoV-2
