What if it was purely doggy, and both were masked up?

Makes me wonder if the gals in Vegas are gonna use that policy as a way back to work.

Well, as soon as Dr. Fauci is fired the WH will have a position open, especially for a scientist that knows how to get all jiggy with it.

He's already been demoted, the orange terror didn't like being upstaged so he's disbanding the covid task force.

Having been around a university for the past three decades as a student and an employee I can say that a lot of really intelligent people can self-justify the most asinine actions.

Humans are walking clouds of oral, vaginal, and anal bacteria. Roll the dice and take your chances.

"I acted in the belief that I was immune, having tested positive for coronavirus and completely isolated myself for almost two weeks after developing symptoms."


At least he got close to the full 14 days before finally indulging. It had to have been difficult waiting things out.

I'm also comforted to hear that someone of his stature is assuming that there's an acquired immunity for those who've already been exposed to and dealt with the virus.

This makes a lot of sense. Human beings are fundamentally self-justification machines, justifying our thoughts and behaviours through any means necessary.

it seems pretty obvious that people who are smart should also be really good at this.

That article had a reference to the number of deaths in the UK, which appears to be in the range of 57,000.

Holyshiat Breton. Not doing so good are you? With the population I'm about one-eighth (or whatever) of the US they have almost as many deaths!

That's around the total number of confirmed cases in Canada. Not deaths, cases.

Most figures are around the 30k mark in deaths so far. Not saying that is accurate by any means but that is the consensus..

I'd rather he had been sacked because his team's original predictions - on which our policy is based - have been ludicrously wide of the mark.

???

"It comes after the number of people who have died with coronavirus in the UK reached 29,427 on Tuesday - the highest number of virus deaths in Europe.
However, figures from the Office for National Statistics - which includes deaths where the virus is suspected, not just where tests have been carried out - brings the total number to more than 32,000."

He didn't lose his job. He just left a committee.

As I am also someone on a lot of committees,I can say lucky bastard. He now has more time to do research.

I know the modeling work they do... it's really good.

The 14-day isolation is staying home entirely -- no trips to work or the store, no outside exercise, do not step foot outside your doors -- if someone in your household shows symptoms.  (If you have symptoms, it is 7 days from onset of symptoms.)  For people who are not considered (potentially) infectious, different rules apply.  Those general lockdown regulations do not have exemptions that allow leaving home for booty calls.

Great. So Sage has lost an actual scientist which now skews its ratio to more non scientists.

To be honest the scientist/non-scientist ratio in SAGE is pretty good.  Even the pols on SAGE tend to have a scientific background.

The thing that you appear to miss is that the island is rather small, and has most of its population in very dense cities.

This is a pretty good comment.  I just finished reading Ferguson's Civilization book and found it not only very well written, but entertaining and learned.  He's a pretty smart guy.  Also, not personally troubled that he wanted to get it on with his lover.  I'd be happy to be allowed to spend an afternoon discussion the current world situation with him.

That would be by Niall Ferguson, the historian. The guy who's resigned is Neil Ferguson, an epidemiologist.

Dang, I read this in the tiny print on my cell phone right after I woke up and was bleary eyed, I kind of wondered why he was on the committee; thanks for the correction.
