It wasn't quite that drastic -- we barely broke 4500/day, and the numbers are coming down, albeit very slowly.  More to the point, everyone could have predicted that.  *I* predicted it, and I'm an idiot.

We're all going to die of mutant Corona Virus, aren't we?

My one year old nephew, who's go to move is "head first" (that boy's head is massive, like a 1/3 of his body weight), saw that coming and he cannot even talk yet.

Your nephew knew Psychopusher was an idiot?  Amazing kid!

Some of us were warning a year ago that if we didn't take it seriously, we'd wind up living forever with, "well, the common cold just kills 1-5% of the people who get it every year now."

And here we are.  Hope the mRNA vaccines can keep up.  We should be ecstatic if we're _only_ dealing with a booster every 6-12 months.  If only there were a way to make Trump and the t(R)aitors pay for it, forever, too.

And none of it had to happen.  Thanks, MAGAts.

I'm not kidding, that boy's head is like Sputnik; spherical but quite pointy at parts

Science isn't always correct and accurate. But it's way better than everything else.

Thank you, Subby.

I can say the same for everyone who runs around saying, "We can open safely! Look at the R0!"

In three years these morons are going to be saying that nobody really told them how bad it was.

It's alright, our Dear Leader Dougie has decided to turn tail and run. Hasn't been seen in 2 days.

You might get a glimpse of him if you pay $1000 bucks for a Virtual Conference tomorrow.

MAGAts?

Ok, yes, they are overwhelmingly a cast of broke, ignorant morons who plaster university logos all over their pasty, obese bodies while never having earned even an undergraduate degree.  Yes, they have dedicated themselves to cutting off the lifeblood of immigration that is needed to offset the declining fertility rate in the United States. Yes, they went Leeroy Jenkins on a plot to overthrow the government and generally sneer at science as a form of distorted cultural virtue signaling.  We are in agreement, they suck.

But they aren't in Canada.  Or the UK.  Or India.  or continental Europe. Or Brazil.  Neither was Trump.  And none of them were licking their fingers after handling whatever bushmeat was oozing fluids in some filthy Chinese farmers market.

It generally admits when it's wrong and tries its best to learn why and course correct. Anti-science people are proud to triple down on their ignorance.

I can assure you that we have a not insignificant number of MAGAts, or at least their intellectual equals, up here in Canada.

I remember a couple months after the lockdowns starting there were certain people going on and on about how we're all freaking out and overreacting because the models weren't even close to true.

We kept having to explain that the models were based on no mitigation being taken.

Yet here we are.  A model that was almost spot on based on lack of mitigation steps being taken.

It's almost like the experts know what they're talking about.

No, but every nation in the world looks to the U.S. in these situations, and DC was full of fawking clowns and bad decisions.

Whenever I see charts like that, I have to remind myself, that in the U.S. at least, that confirmed cases is only the tip of the iceberg. Half of this country won't do anything to reduce transmission, and they won't get tested until admitted to hospital.
