We're heading for a quarter million deaths by the election, aren't we? And half a million before it is finally fully contained...?

People aren't afraid of numbers.

We desperately need video of the daily suffering of victims up close. That's the only thing that will scare people now, maybe.

We're betting everything on the doctors keeping the rest of us alive now.

I haven't left the house, literally not one foot outdoors, since March 21st, yet there are more infections than ever because conservatives won't cooperate even to save their own lives.

I cannot hate them more. It's not physically or psychologically possible. I wish them all to die horrible, wheezing, gasping deaths because that's all I can do. If I could, I'd beat them to death with my metal cane, that's how much I hate them.

I already boycott and avoid anything I know is right wing, and there aren't too many around here and less than there were, but I swear that if we live through this, I will confront and chew-out any right-winger I ever find for inflicting all of this on us innocent people. I WILL NEVER FORGET AND I WILL NEVER FORGIVE!

Isn't that really all we can do until January?  We all know that nothing good or sensible is going to happen.

Thanks, Republicans. You really stood up to save our economy and our freedom. Oh, wait, no. You completely trashed both because you have the Intelligence and instincts of lemmings.

Hoy fark. This is unimaginable.

Literally. Every story of the US apocalypse has the CDC running to the bitter end. This is like...the dude in Walking Dead...but that point in Walking Dead is FARKING TODAY.

Half a million dead, maybe, if the boulder keeps rolling. Many, many businesses bankrupt, many people thrown out of their homes, no school. It's going to be abyssmal.

The CDC didn't give up. They're just telling us how it is right now.

Trump and the GOP are the ones who gave up at the very beginning, because they literally do not give a single fark if hundreds of thousands of Americans die.

And you know what? The effects will really start to be felt when Biden is President and the GOP without blinking an eye will blame him for ALL OF IT.

DO NOT let them get away with it. This is ALL ON THEM!

800k, and that's only because dexamethasone and tocilizumab reduce mortality rate of ventilated patients so much.

And we know that when and if they get voted out in a giant blue wave in November, by December they will be screaming their heads off about all these deaths that Democrats let happen in the greatest country on Earth.

So, um, anyone else out there have Republican Trump-voter friends who wonder why you don't talk to them anymore? Because after Trump's COVID non-response and the latest Russian Bountygate news I can't even look those f*ckers in the eye.

You know, I was looking forward to going to Disney World in February, because the US would have the 'Rona under control by then. Now I see that was just a pipe dream.
I guess I'll take the kids to another part of the world then, since the US will be an isolated, diseased husk of a creature.

Too bad you will be barred from entry. Perhaps you camp in your backyard and order in exotic cuisine from Uber Eats and buy crappy chotskies from Amazon and just pretend?

Congress should AT LEAST try to pass a law mandating masks for everyone countrywide and huge fine for all the plague rats.

The senate would probably oppose it, BUT AT LEAST FARKING TRY YOU WEAKLINGS

I get the feeling we're at the end of the Fool's Paradise Summer and about to enter the Autumn of Harsh Reality.

I have a Trumper co-worker who is going on vacation to Florida in a couple of days.  He's been bellowing for months that the virus is no big deal and that the death numbers are completely faked.

I hope he lives.

Arrgh!

At this rate, I'm never going to get to see Wonder Woman battle a CGI-Cheetah Kristen Wiig.  The studios are going to have to bite the bullet and release some of these movies on VOD at some point, because I'm not going to a theater anytime soon.

Daily deaths now down to only 300 p/day.  But since there is an election coming, fark the facts.

A friend of a friend died today from Covid19. I'm predicting that people I personally know will start dying next month, and family by fall.

I've also noticed that more and more people are ending Zoom calls with "Stay safe, I love you."

This is not the apocalypse we thought we'd get.

The military could put trump and the gop under arrest for treason, which they have done time and time again.

The GOP is openly killing americans, bankrupting them and nobody is stopping their bullshiat. If there's anytime for a coup, its now.

What do you do with the people who cannot afford the fines? I mean, how many threads have we seen on these very forums talking about how punitive measures are nothing but ways to create a cycle of poverty and are racist? It isn't just a bunch of white rednecks not wearing masks you know. Idioacy comes in all colors and genders. Are you then going to jail them in tight spaces for not paying fines to spread the virus?

If nothing is done very, very quickly, you'll probably be in the right order of magnitude if you multiply the first estimate by a factor of ten and the second by a factor of one hundred.

Exponential growth is a terrifying thing.

The thing to look at is NYS got our deaths down to 5 a day from the peak... as we've opened up a bit it's starting to look like it's ticking up... but we had it at a level were it was contracting.  If you have it at a level where it is contracting and keep doing that long enough it will get to the point where you can contact trace it.

That's option A.

Option B is let it run its course.  The lowest mortality estimate I've seen anywhere is .5%.  About 70% of us would have to have had to for herd immunity, and after we got herd immunity we would still probably edge up to 80% before it fizzles out.  80% of 330 million is 266 million cases, and if .5% of them die that means we'd lose 1.33 million dead.  Of course that doesn't take into account that that's not a flattened curve.  That .5% is when everyone gets critical care.  There are numbers out there 10 to 20 times that.

But when we do masks and social distancing and only go out when we need to it goes down.  We need to redouble our efforts.  Trumps irresponsibility with mask wearing has the potential to be the single biggest decision in terms of how many will die in the history of the U.S. since maybe SCOTUS botched Dred Scott.

He would. For Ron Burgundy showed that he was capable of change. At least a little.

And he like, fought a shark or something once than he? Or did you rescue a shark? I can't remember, but whatever it was, he did it with style.
