But Donny promised us the virus would disappear in the heat!

He wouldn't like about something like that, would he?

/Heavens!

"All you need is the right kind of chemistry and density and activity, and you will get the domino of multi-family members getting sick, where three people were sick and two were hospitalized and one didn't make it," Robey said.

"The right kind of chemistry and density and activity" is a whole lot of words to say "stupidity."

Texas here.

We're running out of ICU beds in certain areas. Dallas/Ft Worth is seeing 50% of hospital bed use age <50; 30% of critical care are age <50. We're thinking about 3 weeks until everything's full, which will be just in time for the 4th of July surge, too.

Thanks, Governor Farkwad.

I guess the doctoring types have been too busy to hear about the reopening and the miracle of COVID's disappearance. Shame they're missing out on that. I'll be saying my prayers that they have enough free time to watch Donald receive the Nobel prize for medicine.

But a 300% increase in deaths will be put down as "pneumonia". Weird

Have a friend who's immunocompromised who lives with his mom who has diabeties and had a stroke recently who both live in Arizone. Not getting a kick.

One of the virtues of democracy is if 51% are not sick, they can legislate to make it hell for the other 49%.  It always worked for racism, why not public health.

So it isn't just the flu, it didn't just disappear, its death rate isn't something to sneeze at, and it's not just "increased testing" that makes it look like more cases?

Wow, you're telling me the right wing has been consistently wrong on this at every turn? Who would have thought people who hate and fear science, education, learning, data, and facts could be so wrong.

But no, covid-19 doesn't affect social justice gatherings.

What scares me is surviving, but with some horrible lifelong disability like kidney failure, where I'd need weekly dialysis for the next 30 years, slowly wearing me down until I'm some wheelchair bound sack unable to work, scratching a living together with SSDI payments, forced to live in a rural care center (cost of living is cheaper) like a modern leper colony.

His mom's an idiot that says "If I die, I die" which is why she didn't tell anyone she had a stroke until hours later because it was my friend's birthday. She didn't want to worry him.

Yes, because those massive demonstrations in Seattle, Minnesota, Chicago, New York, Boston, Portland....they all induced massive spikes of disease in Arizona, Texas and Florida.

Maybe all the protestors were from the south and went home afterwards?

Oh wow all those old white folks were at the BLM marches?

I'm just being facetious.  I already know the answer.  The demographics of people currently getting sick are not the people who were marching.  In fact the places that are having the largest spikes are places that either didn't have BLM protests or large BLM protests.

Also, since most of the people who do go to the BLM protests actually care about people's lives they've allowed pretty in-depth testing to be done and have found very low infection rates.

It doesn't seem to affect outside gatherings.  The crowded beaches are probably not that bad either. It's the traveling to and from the beach and the crowded bars, restaurants and hotels associated with the beaches that are the problem

A person suffering a stroke commonly has their medical judgment compromised by the stroke.

Maybe Marty is correct, and COVID is a SJW disease that supports equal protection under the law for all Americans!
 
2020-06-23 10:00:22 AM  
A group of experts at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center forecast a 20 percent rise in cases in North Texas by early July. Their model, presented in an online forum Monday, showed that new cases have spiked among younger people.
"The recent growth appears to be primarily due to increased cases in younger age groups, especially those aged 21-40," they said in the analysis released Monday. "In June, 50 percent of hospitalized covid-19 patients and 30 percent of ICU patients have been under 50 years old."

How many times do you anti science yokels need to be told that outdoor transmission is incredibly rare? Additionally, asymptomatic transmission is very rare.

There is no evidence that they attributed to any real increase in covid infection rates. If you had evidence I hope you would have provided it by now.
 
2020-06-23 10:04:39 AM  
I'm a little surprised their death rate hasn't spiked yet, but that could happen in the next week or two.

If it doesn't, I suppose it could be because more young people are getting sick than old or maybe doctors have even gotten somewhat better at treating it, though I've not heard of any major breakthroughs. The most promising right now seems to be that steroid treatment for people sick enough to need a ventilator.

So they just magically came down with the virus after being around thousands of people? You fo8n't know a farking thing about me or my beliefs and the last thing I am is anti-science. 100% anti-Magat and anti-religion, though.
 
2020-06-23 10:07:14 AM  
I find it sad that we have to say that anyone's life matters, because the opposite says that it's ok to directly or indirectly kill people.
I understand that the anger behind BLM marches in general and the recent ones specifically.
But I do sense a duality in how we see the gatherings as fine, during a pandemic.
For the record, I am not saying they shouldn't happen nor that I think they should stop, and from what I've seen, people are more relatively careful in those groups (masks).
It's just that some people troll express their thoughts here about the marches, and others jump at that and defend it to the death.*
