HeadLever: Daily infection figures have been peaking?

Yesterday was the lowest new daily cases we've had in the US since March 29th.


Can always count on the grey-2 and grey-1 folks to derp without opening the article. Y'all seldom disappoint.

Good! As long as we keep the protected rich class safe, all will be well. Those that are above us need to keep from being near us so that they will not be infected. Please remember, those that are are above us, we are probably all infected and you should continue to fear us. Ignore those that try to use so called logic and ridiculous statistics. We all know that well vetted statistics are the enemy of the true elite. Just continue to buy widgets from China or someplace that the sells other widgets from some exotic local. It's probably made way better than some poor American slob could make those widgets. Besides who are you to judge? It's got the popular logo on it so your people will congratulate you.

Please remember that so called, "essential workers" is just code for the sacrificial. Others will fill the positions that the sacrificial perform immediately upon their demise. There are plenty of chatel to serve you. The ignorant still think they have a choice in life. Its so ridiculous. They are given a number at their birth and under the threat of violence will continue to produce for you until their end. They serve and they will continue to serve. What they want does not matter at all.

No shiat right? What they think doesn't matter at all. Why should they have any opinion at all? Our rulers know what is best for us and we should not let any so-called "person" have any power.

I'm sorry. I know I need to do my duty and go buy some widgets that I think will satisfy the hollow feeling in my soul. When the widget finally arrives my life will finally have meaning. I have ordered the perfect widget.

Besides, if I am wrong, I'll just return that widget that will give purpose to my life back to the amazonians.

There is a lot of wishful thinking going on with regards to this virus.

The only way to solve the economy is to solve the virus.

Can you refute my point, or do all you have is ad hominem attacks?  The article has nothing to refute my point, or subby's misguided talking point.

FTA:  Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has said Russia will begin easing coronavirus restriction on Tuesday, even as the country reported a record 11,656 new cases in 24 hours.

That is the point. Your blather is a complete non sequitur. Which is what happens when you don't read the article.

Doubling down on the derp? You post about U.S. infection rates being down to refute subby claiming the rates are peaking in Russia?
Article is about Russia. The headline rather blatantly hinted at that twist.

//Reading article before responding? That's so crazy it just might work.

?

How do you 'solve' a virus?

We are going to attain herd immunity in one or two ways: through contact or through a vaccine. The problem with waiting for a vaccine is that we are never going to be certain that we'll end up with one.  We have no idea of what time frame we are dealing with here.  And eventually people are going to have to find ways to make a living.

This begs the question that herd immunity is the goal, or even a desirable outcome.

Herd immunity was not the goal for SARS or MERS

I'd be okay with a lot more testing and contact tracing.

/frankly, the US shouldn't even think about reopening for another month, but here we are.
