It's all about political control, of course; Fox News (Murdoch) does not care about lives, but fluffing and agitating their armies of morons into permanent vexation. By the time Biden is sworn in the whole country will be ablaze.

You know what else conservatives? The best way to avoid COVID is to cook your stuff inside. Don't cook your turkey in a deep fryer on your wood deck because it will become steeped in COVID. Just  cook inside like they say on CNN.

Republicans are people who think conspiring with the Russians to prevent America from electing commies is a good idea.

Maybe don't listen to them too much.

I don't care about your politics. I don't want you to contract COVID-19. I don't want you to become ill. I don't want you to suffer long-term debilitation. I don't want you to die.

Please, for fark's sake, stop listening to people who do - people who believe that furthering this harm somehow betters or enriches their own situations, and so want you to ignore the CDC, the WHO, the scientists and the experts.

Stay home, if at all possible. If you can't stay home, wear a mask, practice social distancing, and carry hand sanitizer with you. If you have to bring stuff back home, practice sterile procedure. If you have to let people who don't live in your home into your home, ensure that they wear a mask, practice social distancing, and use hand sanitizer.

Don't be "paranoid," but do be aware of the risks involved, especially if you or anyone with whom you're in regular contact is in one of the high-risk groups. Don't be fearful; be responsible. You are now responsible not just for your own health, but for the health of those for whom you love & care. Don't be an idiot.

Farkin' jeebus.

I'm an Australian living in a city where we had a 6 day lockdown announced this week because of suspected community COVID. A city of over a million folks shut down as hard as it could (could buy groceries but not takeaway food, couldn't walk the dog or leave the house for excercise etc). It turned out to be based on shiatty information (a guy lied to the contract tracing crew and it took a day to work out), now they've called off the shutdown after 3 days.

It won't have been great for our economy to shut down for three days (by the time restriction were lifted) but as a community I think we did really well. We adhered to the restrictions, a few hundred notices were issued by the cops but that's not many really, we wore masks and we didn't lose our shiat and panic-buy or get aggressive.

If you want to manage a viral epidemic, follow the public health advice. It's really that simple. Australia is doing great. Japan (far denser and larger population) is doing great. Because we don't regard wearing masks and social distancing as a bad thing when there's a really good reason for it.

We haven't lost our freedoms. We're self-curtailing them briefly to protect the freedoms of our aged, invalid and otherwise at risk folks. And we're not hating it.

The selfish arseholes demanding their Freedumbs in America while killing literally a quarter of a million of their countrymen in the process are appalling. They are lead by a disgusting lazy scumbag whose science ignorance has gotten the US to this point.

Contact tracing crew. Not contracted guys.

If they were only placing themselves at risk, in the manner of motorcyclists who insist on riding without a helmet "because freedom", I wouldn't care so much.  But by being cavalier about the risks involved with COVID, they're nonconsensually placing everyone they come in contact with at risk.

Circusdog320: 3 weeks after thanksgiving

Why didn't you tell us?!!? Grandma and little Billy are dead now!


In July, in Texas, there was a graph showing the spike from the 4th of July on the 17th.  So it took about 13 days to really hit home from that community spread event.  It was a REALLY narrow spike.  People who got sick enough to end up in the hospital, took 13 days to get that bad.  Then on July 27th, we saw a massive spike in the death rate.  So about 10 days after admission to die.  It was a Google News covid tracker for Texas, but by August it was really clear and easy to see the trend.

Based on those numbers, I expect 13 days after Thanksgiving to be a real test of the hospitals, and 10 days after that to be a real test of the morgues.  Though I am skeptical of the narrow'ness of the bands in that data.  that was a super-tight spike on both the 17th and 27th.

Usually a spike that narrow means a certain type of infection, or a certain type of person getting it that is fairly well represented in the population.

The non-renewable energy sector worth trillions in the US and a massive supporter of the Republican Party.

Think it through.

You can't start blindly accepting science like public health virology when you've been engaged in a generation-long trashing of science which is in any way different to the science your granddaddy knew.

The fact your granddaddy might actually have lived in the time of the Spanish Flu when public health policy was found to be far superior in managing the situation than populist bullshiat is irrelevant.

Meh. I say let 'em all drop dead. They're subhuman garbage. Every last one.

All I care about is the innocent people they infect and absolutely nothing else. I spend every waking moment getting anyone within my sphere of influence to take a militant stance on anything to do with these 'people'. It's a war and should be treated as such.

He's a US citizen mate, has been for years. You own him now.

/interesting Murdoch tale. His father, the late Sir Keith Murdoch, was an Australian WW1 correspondent from the front lines at Gallipoli. He challenged the military and its British leadership over their use of "over the top, boys" trench warfare attacks against Turkish soldiers well-armed and well-dug-in with German machine guns who were just cutting them to ribbons as they left the trench, yet the strategy continued. Murdoch Snr threatened to write articles for public consumption outlining the pointless slaughter of Australians and New Zealanders, a risky maneuver for a colonial nobody, and they stopped the useless and wasteful tactic.

Rupert is an appalling arsehole no two ways about it but his father changed WW1 history.

You know what?  I used to think like you...Then in August while people were out ignoring the guidelines this happened: Nearly 10% of postal workers (my coworkers) nationwide have tested positive for COVID-19.  Now we're well past that.  Now I'm ready to watch it burn.  You don't want to follow guidelines?  Fine.  But don't ask for any help when the economy is toast, when even those with money can't buy proper care, and enjoy that Turkey, because who knows if you'll be intubated by Christmas.
