What's the difference?
I cannot disagree with your conclusion, but there is the reality we simply do not have the data to say it is or is not happening. Also, it may be so in some places and not in others because of some of the efforts we have made.
Butter emails, MMMMMMMgurgle gurgle.
Philly's going to have a huge Avengers-themed orgy when the pandemic is over
Time to go home.
I heard a bit on NPR about rampant church choir COVID outbreaks compared to almost zero gym outbreaks. Both have people packed into a small area with vigorous breathing.
IMHO gyms have always practiced disinfecting (staff infections always a risk) and physical distancing (depending on the gym's focus) while choirs never had to. Also people attending gyms are generally much healthier & fitter than choir members.
"Both have people packed into a small area" and "gyms have always practiced physical distancing" are contradictory.
Which one is true?
Turns out we may have hit 100K earlier than we thought.
The original article has a lot of charts and graphs that won't embed.
If true, that would make hydroxychloroquine a very dangerous drug to use in trying to combat it. The last thing you would want is a treatment that provokes heart problems. Especially when that "treatment" has been shown time after time to have no effect whatsoever in actually preventing or curing the disease.
Missouri had lots of pool parties last weekend. One of the attendees has now tested positive:
It's not safe to lift social distancing yet. The science is clear, ffs.
Like the science being clear has ever mattered to conservatives.
I am thinking wendy can take out the whole bunch with a couple of calls. It is just an option.
Add it to the recognized inflammatory heart diseases? https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25682012/
I think less than 5 of those states have any major urban centers...
And like 6 of those states have populations of 1 million or less each.
hmmm...them maybe those states didn't didn't need many restrictions in the first place. Just sayin'
I wonder how he defines "beaten" now?
Hey, the US is down to only 1000 deaths per day, from over 2000 per day a month ago.
Doesn't that count for something? I mean, if the Islamic State was only killing 1000 Americans per day, that would count as having won the war on terror, wouldn't it?
Well, COVID19 had its three months in the news but now it’s time for killer cops and rioting.
Thanks for playing, C19!
It'll be back.
Nah. It's done for. Time to move on to other things.
Well, this was certainly an interesting article...
I know the news has moved on from COVID-19, but for anyone still talking about it, this was interesting and encouraging:
"No evidence of COVID-19 airborne transmission"
Number of active cases in the USA seems to have peaked on May 30th and is now decreasing.
Granted, it's only been a few days, but the trend is encouraging.
Absent any info that the virus has mutated locally, that's pretty strong evidence that disease severity, and possibly contagiousness, is highly dependent on viral load.
And that should come as no surprise to anyone with even moderate medical knowledge who has been paying attention to the pandemic.
The body's immune system is something like fighting off an invading army: there is much more hope of success in fighting off a small army than a big army.
Early on, when it was still being thought that those who died were almost always people who were old and frail, or who had serious medical conditions already, people were wondering why medical workers who were young and in good health were regularly dying from exposure to the disease. The obvious explanation was viral load.
That article should absolutely not be taken to mean that the disease has suddenly mutated everywhere so that it is much less dangerous. That is not the most likely explanation, the data is far too meager to justify and general conclusions, and in any case it appears that this particular coronavirus is not very likely to mutate significantly in short order. And it is completely unrealistic to think or even hope that it would do so everywhere.
Hospitals in Montgomery County are out of beds. Hospitals in Lee County are out of beds. Hospitals in Tuscaloosa County are out of beds. Hospitals in Marion County are running out of beds. All new patients are being transferred to Birmingham hospitals.
We had 1,600 cases when Governor Ivey issued the Stay at Home order. We've added 5,600 cases in the last ten days. We've tested 5% of the State's population since April 1st.
Governor Ivey wants to go to Phase 4 and ease restrictions to almost nothing.
That is all a false flag operation by the deep state. Fake news. If Alabama were to have that sort of trouble it would mean trump and the republicans are wrong, and we know that they are not wrong because fox news says so. Clearly a few thousand cases is just the dems in the state making themselves sick just to make trump look bad. You have to start owning the libs and opening things up.
