I like how our resident GOP Gunga Din complains about nurses who are off duty giving interviews and mask wearing...has never ever said anything about GOP crap and the FluKlucksKlan.

It's especially telling that said GOP state rep informed other republicans of his diagnosis, but did not inform democrats that he had also exposed.

Supply-side math:  "I received the positive test result on May 20 and immediately quarantined myself for the recommended two weeks."  Today is May 27.

Their self-imposed quarantine ends tomorrow and both said they have not had symptoms but have also not been tested.

WHYYY?  If people have been in contact with known infected they should damned will be tested.  This is idiotic!

It's a test, like Job.

Side note: I love that the Bible has a story about how God lets the devil destroy someone's life for fun to prove a point, because if you can make someone believe that all the bad sh*t that happens to you is God testing you, you can pretty much convince them of anything.

That's attempted murder.  farker
 
2020-05-27 9:32:17 PM  
Actually, the fact he didn't inform Democrats he was in contact with is attempted assassination.
 
2020-05-27 9:32:18 PM  
Out of respect for my family, and those who I may have exposed, I chose to keep my positive case private.

Except for the fact that you didn't tell everyone you potentially exposed.  Only those in your "group".  AKA - only the Rs.  So you're a shiatweasel that should have died.

"Shaking" and "hugging" are mysteriously absent from TFA subby. Were they previously in your ass, or do you have a magic crystal ball?

You could just be confused, because TFA says that Lewis had contact with one of the guys the day after the rally(The other guy, Diamond, was the sponsor of the rally and the key speaker, so if he was infected, HE passed it on).

I mean, at last get your shiat straight. You could even try(I know this is pretty "out there"), READING YOUR OWN FARKING ARTICLE.

And you skipped the important part where Democrats weren't told of this positive case for like a week.

The Pre-Jesus Abrahamic god is a sociopath. He doomed all of humanity to pain and suffering because he, as an all-powerful god, couldn't keep track of one slithery sneaky Snek.

I was going to try to give him the benefit of the doubt, thinking he may still be in isolation, but then:

"Now that I have fully recovered and completed the quarantine as required by the Department of Health..."

Total BULLshiat!

All-powerful all knowing and perfect. He doesn't make mistakes ever, and he knows what will ever happen in the future, so he doomed humanity to millenia of pain and suffering on purpose. We can trust this information because it was written by a bunch of guys who spent most of their days baking their brains in the desert without air conditioning.

Hey but at least He gave us opioids.

I saw that and was assuming that he was saying that he would have ONLY possibly caught it on the 14th, or some dumb shiat like that.

Brian Sims (Democratic PA rep) had a lot to say about how he and a whole lot were exposed to Covid without being told while in person sessions, meetings and rallies happened.
 
2020-05-27 10:18:20 PM  
If anything this story is a good reminder that covid-19 is not in fact a death sentence for everyone who contracts it.

Also I feel bad for the poor guy who'd have to handle the contact tracing for something like this
 
2020-05-27 10:25:29 PM  
Also, apparently this guy was running around shedding virus like crazy.  Shouldn't there be a list of people he left in his wake who are now at least like, hospitalized or something?

I mean I doubt he was wearing a mask.  And  it sounds like he's been in close proximity to a LOT of people.

And that's the thing.  There are several of these stories now.   It should've been pretty easy at this point to for at least one of these where a diagram could be done.

Ok we know he had the virus, he exposed these people who are now deceased and they exposed those people who were hospitalized or deceased.    Haven't seen anything like that though.

Or maybe it's that this virus isn't as deadly as fark and the media want us to believe?

Since Republican politicians seem to be afraid of attending public meetings these days, it's likely he spread COVID-19 around in select GOP crowds. So it's got that going for it.

He only experienced mild symptoms and has supposedly recovered, so you won't get your wish there.

Scumbags. Republicans. But I repeat myself.

Covid-19 has heightened people's principles in new yet completely unsurprising ways.

A single anecdote like this proves nothing about anything - doesn't even indicate anything. Why would you think it does?
Even when and if we do find out how many people this clown sickened, it will only be the data of a single vector.
That's not how epidemiology works.
