Being it's Westchester, I would be more worried about undiagnosed mutant genes kicking in than COVID-19.

And this is why it's so damn hard to get the R-value down to less than 1.  Even if most people are responsible, and even if most people who contract it isolate, one person can infect a dozen in a single event.

Family drama

Have a cousin in Texas. She and her wife take all this very seriously as do cousin's parents and rest of my family. Her wife's family does not. Yes, they're huge Trump supporters and rich as fark. Family birthday party last week, the girls are there and masked up, the rest of the family is not.

The brother in law is getting way too close to my cousin so she tells him to back off. He's starts making fun of her and her masks and all that jazz. Today, he's hospitalized with the COVID. Waiting to hear who else is going to have it but hoping the cousin and her wife are okay.

They're both ready to bail on the whole scene. Unfortunately, spouse's parents are so busy guilting her about taking it seriously and usually avoiding the family that everybody is just miserable. Hopefully COVID guy will be the most miserable.

Of the friends and family mix, family is way more toxic, even worse the closer to Queens.

One of my daughter's ex-roommates (college) recently posted on FB that she had contracted Covid. She is a 22 year old devoted bar-hopper and Trump-supporting anti-masker (as well as one of the least intelligent young people I've ever met).

Well, no more. After spending two weeks in bed and coming close to calling an ambulance to take her to the hospital, she's a true believer that this thing is the real deal. She's on FB telling everyone she knows to wear the mask and social distance.

Three weeks after symptoms, she's still farked up and can barely eat. Sucks that it takes something like this to knock some sense into someone, but, mission accomplished.

R below 1?

The NY metro area (ny/jersey/ma) seem to have succeeded.

Their infection curve is following that of most of Europe.

FTA: "Two officers were going through the crowd. They were putting reminders to everybody. We did not issue any summonses. Most people were complying,"

"Most were complying". Care to take a stab at what the rest were doing?

Regular masks don't give you much protection from an infectious person, but they're extremely effective at stopping you from infecting others.

If you refuse to wear a mask and you wonder why other people get upset, it's because you're effectively saying, "I don't care if I infect you."

They're upset because anyone not wearing a mask is a potential threat to them.

If you're living in a hotspot and you're not wearing a mask, this is how you look to other people:

Dr. They, from the 2018 X-Files episode "The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat." I consider that episode to be the funniest and possibly one of the best episodes of the entire extended show. Watch it if you get the chance.

No, people being responsible.  But yes, if we're going to be serious NY has done a fairly good job.

Now, let's see how long it lasts  ... *evil laughter*

Hey, at least they're only guilting her about the mask. It is Texas after all.

When this is over, her and wifey should think about putting distance between them and the family.  If they don't care if they get each other sick and die, there probably wasn't much they cared about them to begin with.

A bunch of people want to believe masks are magic and the only reason we haven't beaten this is a few people refusing to wear them.

They are, ironically, very much the same as the people who refuse to wear masks. Both in denial, choosing to believe what makes them feel better.

Masks obviously aren't magical and don't work perfectly, but they are much better than not wearing one. Many lives have been saved by mask wearers and many more would be saved if everyone wore one.

How does the old saying go, "Some lessons must be lived, in order to be understood."

Sadly, some don't live long enough to learn the lesson.

The NY metro area (ny/jersey/ma) seem to have succeeded.

Their infection curve is following that of most of Europe.


The governors of most of the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic states came together to coordinate how this all would go down.  They've been largely successful because they kept lines of communication open between each other to make sure one would not rush too quickly into reopening their state.

The real test will be when everything is reopened to pre-shutdown conditions (with new measures added), we'll see if there's another outbreak or things stay largely stable.

And that's still too high for my liking.  Maybe if it went to 0.5 I'd be a little more comfortable.
