That wont stop the trumpers from voting for him.

The last I heard from these stupid POS : isnt it suspicious that theres a big spike just before the election?? I bet it was all planned and all those numbers are fake to make trump look bad and it'll all go down right after the democrats steal the election!

/gee I wonder why theres a spike 2 months after opening the schools
//and most people still dont wear a goddamn mask
///and the GOP continue to open everything and act like the pandemic aint a thing

Well, if you just look at the figures in Denmark, Norway and Finland, you can quite clearly see that Sweden is literally pulling folk into the street and executing them, in comparison to the US.

I still don't understand how that site works and how it became gospel to so many companies and governments almost instantly without debate. What the hell is going on?!
I don't doubt the 100k number, though.

good point. something i realized one day while tying an onion to my belt. somebody got to be in the #1 slot. someone has to be the big wiener. take no talents like jimmy kimmel and jimmy fallon. both assclowns with great paying shows on TV. neither deserves their slot. but, well, somebody has to make the big paycheck and sit in the big chair. look at that ertarded boy Donnie Trump. hell, they voted him President. long story short it don't mean nothing.

Utah was 10-12th in new cases just a week or two ago, with around 1200-1500 each day.

Now we are 18th. At 2300.

Shiat is escalating and I'm not sure people realize it.

This is why the group I sort of hang out with hasn't really gotten together this year, and when we did things were outdoor, distanced, and masked. Sure, it's not quite the same, but we don't want anyone dying. Socially distanced cosplay photo shoots just have the added challenge of using a different lens, or shooting in a different way than usual.

It'll be on fire nearly everywhere, a combination of schools reopening, general laxity in suburban and rural places, and the Great Orange Ape belittling the threat constantly.

Unfortunately, this virus has been politicized, not only in in America, and way too many people ignorant, selfish, arrogant, or some combination of those three.

Stay safe.

It scrapes data from state health reporting, and county reporting where it applies.

What pisses me off is that like 60-80% of people are doing the right thing and everything they can to end the pandemic as soon as possible while 20-40% of society doesnt give a fark so this pandemic will never end.

I wish the 60-80% of people would put the other 20-40% six feet under. The world would be better place for at least a generation. Like when the nazis were all killed or put in prison, Germany was a better place.

Assuming a 3 week lag from diagnosis to death, a 3%-per-day escalation in cases, and a 1.5% fatality rate, I would expect 2k/day by the end of November. (Of course Thanksgiving will completely mess up reporting for a few days, so I wouldn't want to look at anything but the 7-day average)

People said I was crazy back in (¿ maybe..) April when I said some of the following would be only way to stop this cold.

1
we needed a 10Trillion rescue fund and  total lockdown other than true essentials through year end.


2A
smartphone app that uses Bluetooth cell signal, wifi, everything to upload real-time proximity data of everyone in the US to each other for government automated contact tracing. (And associated law requiring its use including the loss of cell phone use for rest of life)

2B
$2T Manhattan project style Home based instant real time testing that auto uploads results to govt database in conjunction with 2A. All citizens tested at least 2x oer month, randomly. Law making non compliance a felony on par with sex assaults and rape.  National registry of offenders.

3
Mask mandate and
tiered penalty structure for mask violators Similar to DUI.
1st offense : 5k and education
2nd offense: 20k and 30 days in jail
3rd offense: 50k , felony, 2 years in jail.
If the contact tracing in#2Bproves you and you alone infected someone your charge  to terrorism, murder, etc.

Looks like I was right...

Meanwhile, Japan is at 100K TOTAL cases (a little under 9000 active), and about 1750 deaths. Japan's population is about 38% that of the US (and we're packed MUCH tighter, and almost all of us ride public transportation). If we can do it, you can do it. Wear your damn MASKS!!!!

You've had in just one day what we've had since the start of this mess (like what, 9 months?). I hope y'all get your shiat together, for your own sake if nothing else.

What's the per? America registers as about  350 million. What's Sweden, 10 million?
 
2020-10-31 3:22:07 AM  
Pretty meaningless as a statistic. You're comparing raisins and watermelons. Only China and India have higher populations. And for various reasons, their statistics aren't reliable so the concept of "confirmed cases" in those countries is meaningless. That leaves the US, the third most populous country, to hit all the markers first. If you're not comparing cases per million people, you're just confusing the issue to make a nonsense political point. That makes it easier for the naysayers to tune out valid statistical observations that indicate the US isn't doing a great job. So, as Bob Belcher said, "I know you think you're helping, but stop it."

Well, that's mathematically a pretty safe bet. So I'll make a bolder statement.

When we hit 5k deaths per day in December, Trump and company will blame President-Elect Biden and make a huge show of crocodile tears for these poor innocent Americans who died because Sleepy Joe (-elect) wasn't up to the job.

...hmm, no, I guess my statement was pretty much stating the obvious too.

If you can't see the holes, it stops the virus.  It's science.  Mask keeps you safe, but only if other person wear mask.  Wear mask now.  But kind of mask that make me feel safe.  When I want.  I make rules for you.  Because I say what science is.  You have to do this cause I say so. I so scared, but less scared when you wear mask.  That proves mask works.  But only mask that I say works.  Because I am smrt.

I bet you loved the old George Carlin joke; basically "The holes in condoms are two microns wide. The HIV virus is one micron wide. What's all this about safe sex?" He wasn't making fun of people who use condoms. He was making fun of people like you. If you come on a brick wall, HIV doesn't magically fly out of your jizz and pass through, no matter how small it is.
