I spent the first part of March driving to work past the hospital where the first documented US COVID-19 fatalities were occurring to sit in a crowded conference room with over a dozen international visitors for about 12 hours a day. You can bet your boots I was glad to go into lockdown before catching that shiat. Now instead of worrying about travelers catching that crap on an airplane I get to be on the lookout for antimasker Cletus and his precious freedoms.

Funny thing - the cases actually DO stop right at the Canadian border.

We wasted MONTHS of time in lockdown and now it's worse because we got bored and said "F*ck it, Imma get mah nails done!"

Hmmm,

It's almost as if ignoring a problem won't make it go away...

Driving drunk and not hitting anyone : a crime.

Being sick with COVID knowingly and putting people in danger : not a crime.

Being a bioweapon and spreading the disease knowingly should get you a spot at a FEMA camp.

Wow. PA isn't the most "Appalachian" but it looks like 3rd. Sigh.

Actually, reckless endangerment and negligent homicide ARE crimes...you just need a competent government to prosecute them.

My mother and father just had to start another quarantine because the son of family friend was exposed at work and the company didn't tell him until he showed symptoms.

We are proper farked.

Yesterday, on tv, I watched Ontario's Medical officer of health and another doctor get slammed by reporters from the Toronto Sun and National Post...with inane ranting questions about imposing quarantine restrictions on Peel Region when peel has low infection numbers. The questions rambled with all kinds of weird insinuations.

Idiots. You have to impose the restrictions when the numbers are low, or else they get big, at an exponential rate.

The MOoH needed to be clever so he did not shiat all over the reporters and cause some kind of non-scandal-but-still-scandal. So instead of shutting down restaurants because the owners are refusing to impose the legal restrictions, he said, "It's not the setting that matters, it is the type of socializing. The issue is that the diners are not following protocols. The restaurants are not the problem, but the kind of socializing is the problem." To someone who can understand, that is BS but gets to the same conclusion - restaurants are sites where people basically do not follow precautions and heck, how could they? But stated in a way that won't make the "business leaders" (who are those unnamed jackholes anyhow??) more angry.

From the way the Sun and NP were hammering our doctors, it looks like Ontario is about go into total Trumpian infection chaos. The reporters were essentially telling lies about where restrictions come from, instead of asking questions. The MOoH was the most patient person on earth for about 45 minutes. I want to send him some scotch and a sympathy card for what he dealt with today. Also so he can handle the oncoming shiatstorm. I doubt the Sun and NP are gonna report his answers accurately.

/CSB? Sympathy CSB?

That is amazing advice and I shall build my future life on it.

The problem wasn't the lockdown, it was that we did it without UBI, Medicare for all, housing and food security.  We will do it right this time and provide for people.  We will have a mandatory vaccine and we will get through this together.

Stopped reading at "third wave".  Can't have a third wave if the first wave never actually went back out to sea.  It's just one big farking wave.

Of course the infection rate is low in Humboldt County. There isn't much room for the virus to get in around all of that marijuana smoke.

So what you're saying is the only way you can feel better about yourself is to compare the numbers from *one* country to the total in *28* countries?

Keep denying reality - that'll surely fix this!

It's funny how covid maps look more and more like voting maps. Hmm, I wonder if there is a correlation inbetween Republican control and increased covid numbers?

Professor Horatio Hufnagel: Oh how enlightening, a population density map.


The midwest is maybe populated with a lot of dense people when it comes to Covid-19. Population-wise, not so much.

As for Peel region in Ontario, Canada, what isn't being said for cultural sensitivity reasons, is which municipalities are the worst.   Some cultures are simply ignoring what the government is advising.

WTF are you blabbing about?  Denying the reality that this shiat is spiraling out of control?  Nope.  Denying the fact that it's everywhere?  Nope.  

Here's the the top-25 in the world in new cases, normalized for population.  The US and EU are highlighted, though of course many of the other countries in the top 25 are constituent states of the EU.

Look at this chart... Belgium is at 207 new infections/100K.  France is at 52/100K  Netherlands at 46/100K. UK and Italy (difficult to see) are at 34 and 36.  Go explore it yourself at 91-divoc.com - it allows you to pull data from multiple sources and compare trends.

We can see in the data in the US that some places are not spiking again, or at least not as severely - DC and Maryland are at 14 and 16 respectively.  Florida, even being led by a clown, is somehow at 17/100K.  Where's the difference?  NYC is below 10.  Meanwhile North Dakota and South Dakota are at 114/100K and 113/100K respectively, not quite as bad as Belgium, but still a raging inferno of new infections.

Understanding what is happening is important - in the U.S., it's being driven by the spread into rural areas, which tend to be both less restrictive and less proactive on prevention measures.  What is happening across Europe?  Is there a similar urban/rural disconnect?  Is it restriction fatigue?  Is there a new mutation that is making the virus more virulent?  Insufficient contact tracing?  Is the U.S. missing too many cases as this new wave inundates us?

You want to tilt at windmills?  Have a street-brawl with a straw man?  Have fun.  Whatever makes you "feel better about yourself."

Wow, Marathon.  Haven't thought about that game for a while.  We used to play multiplayer on a LAN and we'd create our own levels.  I remember one of them was just a single-room arena packed to the gills with exploding BOBs.  Good times.
