They have a 20% positivity rate in testing.  That is hilarious.   If this was March and April I'd feel sorry for them but now I just laugh at their stupidity.

But, hats off to them for not letting the virus dominate their lives.  Most of them will get through this.  Those who couldn't or are debilitated for life were probably beta cucks anyways.
 
2020-10-20 12:44:48 PM  
Yeah and 75% of that is in Fargo. 20% in Bismarck and the remaining 5% live at exits off the interstate that offer NO SERVICES.

I've set up a calendar reminder to send one quarter of a thought and three quarters of a prayer a little later this afternoon. I'd send more but I already sent the better part of a thought and a small prayer sliver to Jeffrey Toobin.

But those people are freedom loving people in ND able to decide what's best for them! FREEDOM! Even death is a freedom choice in ND!

Anything more than 10% seemingly means that you aren't capturing anything even close to the real positive rate

And I'm going there for the weekend to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday...in a town on the west side of the state, so away from the "cities" in ND.

Eh at least big pharma, doctors and the funeral industry are booming.

The rest of the population goes bankrupt/dies...

So its like the 1% farking people over again.

People are so used getting farked over that they just accept it like lemmings, even if it means they are gonna die or see their loved ones die.

We are in 1984.

Friend of mine In ND is recovering from it now.  Nicest lady you'd ever want to meet, a formerly deaf  woman who grooms Dogs by trade and keeps a whole pack (5) of corgis as well as innumerable lizards, frogs, fish, even (ironically) a very talkative parrot.  It's heartbreaking to see her right now.  She's in CONSTANT pain to where she can barely care for her animals right now, and this brilliant witty women is als suffering from, in her words "a brain fog" that makes processing and remembering information really hard for her.   And she's one of the "lucky' ones because she survived it.

Utah at 14.4% as of yesterday. In a few months we'll be longing for the 1000+ daily count. Sooo many covidiots spread around the state we're not going to get a handle on it at all. Evar. I think the long game is wait till there are only about 20% of the pop that HASN'T got the 'rona and declare victory.

As someone who sat in the covid testing line in Bismarck yesterday, and is awaiting test results, I can truly say I'm not getting a kick. We have been practicing distancing, hygiene and masking up since March, but when a huge percentage of your neighbors aren't, yeah, yer screwed.

$50 says if I walked in to the grocery store up the road in Washburn right now, most people would have no mask (including the workers).

People here are trying, just not enough of the people are.

This is Fark.  If you live in a state that has elected a Republican, you deserve to die.  Painfully.  Because love trumps hate or something like that.

Can confirm the brain fog. I had it in April, and things are just starting to get back to normal, somewhat...I work in engineering, and parsing through strings of alphanumeric data is part of my job. I had to break out a pad and pen, and start writing down what I was doing, what this information was for, etc...a lot of re-reading and comparing to make sure I was getting it correct, whereas before I could just keep it all in my head. It was the worst of my symptoms it turns out, though I wouldn't have said that in May.

They don't wear masks, they eschew the practice.

Stop attacking the wrong side just because they're not "polite" enough for you.

My wife turns 60 next week, in February we started planning a party. Now it is just going to be 8 people at our house. Hoping for next year, half way between our 60th's. If not I let her horn in on my 60th the year after.

Missing big birthday things is minor compared to missing someone stuck in the hospital alone and then dying alone. I missed a few funerals I would have liked to go to this year, good friends and extended family members.

My parents still live in my hometown in ND. My dad lives in the house that they built when I was a kid and right behind it is a assisted living/Good Samaritan home.

There have been 16 deaths attributed in the entire county. All 16 are from that assisted living home. They had 7 people die in 7 days. Almost 30 staffers also tested positive. One traveling nurse also died so the total deaths is actually 17 but for some reason it isn't officially attributed to the county.

2020-10-20 1:46:21 PM  
I should add that I went in for testing yesterday because I'm having symptoms (chills, body aches, sore throat, dry cough, 02 sat still looks fine for now). I had the EXACT same symptoms the first part of April, before there was really any testing happening here. Lasted two weeks, lungs hurt for @2 months, fully recovered by June.

Just sayin', people counting on herd immunity and/or vaccination might not want to get their hopes too high. It's my opinion that robust testing, early intervention, and targeted treatments are going to be way more important.

I'm coming to the sad realization that it's just gonna be my kids, wife, and Jewish father in law for Christmas this year. Probably just gonna ask for chore coupons from the wife. Thanks Republicans. I don't ever wanna hear about a war on Christmas from you farks ever again.

The 20% positive rate includes re-test (nurses and other mandatory people who get frequent tests).

Without them the rate is about 40%.

Crazy. The doctors office our family uses sends out weekly updates. Maryland hasn't been COVID free by any stretch but most weeks they state 200-300 tests administered and 1 or 2 positives. Can't imagine the hell of having to administer tests knowing that half the people you touch (even with PPE) have a raging case of COVID.
