Repuglicans react by increasing the number of used tires filled with water.

Feh, we've got WNV and EEE around the NE, subby, to go along with the endemic LD.

When do we start naming pandemics like hurricanes?
 
2020-07-11 3:37:30 PM  
I had WNV about six years ago.  Yeah, use bug spray cause it sucks.  Not Covid sucks but not fun.  I was sick for 10 weeks and I think it kicked off the lung disease I now deal with.

As the ol' planet heats up a variety of mosquito borne illness and other exotic tropical diseases will migrate from equatorial regions to temperate regions.

Angel dust is probably closer to this year's theme.

Considering immortality isn't a thing for homo sapiens, that's pretty much a given.  Just a matter of how and when.

I am Tom Joad's Complete Lack of Surprise: Repuglicans react by increasing the number of used tires filled with water.


Used tires filled with water are definitely one of those things that I assumed I'd see way more of in life.  Every PSA about mosquitos in the 80's showed someone dumping standing water out of tires.  I've yet to see any used tires sitting around anywhere that isn't a dump or a service garage.

No surprise that Donnie Babyhands has never even heard of the Virus. Maybe he'll tank the markets again to own the libs.

One more reason to wipe out the mosquitos once and for all.

First mosquitos, then bats, then nazis.

Here they just cut the funding for helicopter spraying. They then complain about the increase in various annoying insects like mosquito and gnats and fail to put the two together.

This is a current concern for me. They keep getting closer. And they have the right to bear arms.

West Nile ain't the OMG virus you think. Of course if you contract it after Covid, well...
 
2020-07-11 5:52:05 PM  
Meh, this shiat happens all the time near me in illinois.  Take obvious precautions, but it never gets that bad.

Here's last year, some states had cases in the 100.

Here's a link to the cases from 98-2018.  Some years we had cases in the thousands in the US total.

So meh, I'll be cautious like I always am cuz mesquito bites suck in general, but overall it isn't any big threat as of right now compared to another of other things.  Definitely not as afraid of mosquitos here as i was in South and Central America.

Yellow fever outbrealsnin the US OTOH would scare me more.
 
2020-07-11 5:52:14 PM  
This bullshiat is just late season hijinks: stunt casting or "The Brady Bunch in Hawaii." Oooh! We thought the virus from Ancient Egypt was gone! But! It's! Snot!

Jump the Shark much, writers?

Oh, you think this is bad. Wait for the southeast Nile virus, the Erona, and the "it's just a flu." Coming to an ICU near you fall 2020. Razzmatazz!!!!

Take a drive out in the country and you'll find lots of them I've got four tires in my backyard doing a fine job as a mosquito nursery. I should probably get rid of them but what if I buy another 2006 Cavalier and it needs snow tires?

Wouldn't it be great if there were an antigen in the mosquitoes that cured COVID?  that would be hysterical.

Yeah.

I'm thinking that we're all going to end up catching COVID-19 in the end, though.

And for those of us who don't die upfront, I'm thinking the complications shave 10-20 years off our life expectancies on the back-end.

I got WNV years ago.  Up until them, mosquitoes thought I was delicious.  Then WNV and once recovered, no more mosquito bites...until that new mosquito show up around here.  Little buggers think I delicious.

This is 2020, though. If that antigen cured covid it would also have to cause bleeding from every orifice, or massive constant diarrhoea, or make your hair permanently fall out. Otherwise it wouldn't fit in 2020.

Pretty sure that if we wipe out the mosquitoes, we'll wipe out a air number of the bats. We've already wiped out the "real" nazis. What we have now are akin to cub scouts pretending to be Army Rangers.

I don't think I saw one mosquito in all the years I lived in LA.

I should think that a simple month and year should be enough, with competing waves of diseases within the same month just given a number.
