Whatever you say, subby.  Georgia has been pretty much wide open for 11 months.  Other than the same Winter surge every state saw, things are going great here.

Too true Subby. Just look at the explosion of COVID cases in Texas in the last 6 weeks since then foolishly reopened. New case have skyrocketed from 4,900 all the way up to 3,300 per day. Scientists fear if this -32% growth continues, cases could slip below 1,000 by summer. It's a disaster.

"Our reproductive number has reduced from 1.2 to 1.073."

Then no. Things are not getting better. You have, at best, tapped the snooze button for a week or two as the variants of concern grow to make up a larger share of the overall cases. If you actually want to bend the curve of active cases downward, you need to do a lot better than that.

The desired R is 0. That should be your target, not 0.99999.

- largely industrialized warehouses and similar sites

- certain specific neighborhoods of largely particular demographics, but to target those neighborhoods (*cough* Brampton *cough*) would elicit hue and cry from media pundits and the professionally concerned.

Vaccines are the difference. We're still telling essential workers that they aren't a priority but that they need to get back to work anyways.

THIS.

Vaccination helps reduce the r-value but any locale that has invested in a COVID-Zero strategy has reaped dividends.

Shiatty populist governments who think they can race an exponential curve with a linear (at best) rate of vaccine delivery are getting hammered. Also, a business that might survive a single "full" lockdown with financial supports can't survive 3 of them spread months apart and dropped with little warning or support. Our "lives and livelyhoods" strategy has cost us a huge number of both.

It's a weird human thing where if something got REALLY bad for a while, "only kinda bad" seems good by comparison.  That chart says things are as bad now as they were in July last year, which is substantially worse than it was in April, which is when Georgia thought "we should issue a shelter-in-place order."  So, I guess it's "going great" if "continuously worse than that time we thought nobody should leave their houses" is "going great."

Not to mention that it's somehow as bad as last July even with all the vaccinations.

Cases is a shiatty thing to be setting opening up on, especially now that the most vulnerable have had ample opportunity for vaccination.

What matters is hospital capacity, and to a slightly lesser degree death rates.

This.

Also, your hospital staff are stretched extra thin and burnt out from operating at crisis levels constantly.

They've also suffered some attrition due to various reasons and so short staffed they're cannibalizing on coming and off going shifts to stay afloat and are cannibalizing the pipeline as well.

Other sectors must be hurting to get any nurses at all,given hospitals are taking brand new rns with just a few months of nursing home experience and having to poach those from hundreds of miles away...

The nursing shortage is about to get real ugly.

This country needs a training program like the ww2 pilot training program to churn out an army of nurses, debt free.

And farking reform health care for gods sake.

But really, we need an army of nurses.

While you are right in that not all location are created equal for shutdowns, (closing outdoor locations? really? What does that solve?) regarding demographics; much of that is due to increased testing from people who actually believe the virus exists versus decreased testing from people who don't "believe" in the virus. White males, in particular, are highly likely to not get get tested for the virus, so their testing rate is way down, yet their positivity rate is way up, implying that they are getting infected at a similar rate, but think it's 'just a cold', up until they wind up in the hospital or dead. If the only people tested are from area X, most of the positive cases will be from area X.

*

in my local area, 32% of new cases are coming from bars. That has a direct causal connection to bars reopening. But you are right in that we need to, in addition, require some sort of OSHA requirement in enclosed industrial spaces so that workers cannot infect each other, as that is also a major infectivity vector.

Yes, no doubt the vaccine is helping.  But testing is also down precipitously in Texas.

I'm suspicious of the numbers that come out of places like Florida and Texas, where politics play a very strong part in the reporting of stats.  I realize that other states are not as accurate as they should be either -- due to many factors like the lack of standardized reporting methodology, testing shortages over the course of the pandemic, and a political desire to shade the statistics in a way that favors opening businesses.

We're really not going to know till we see the excess death statistics of all those places in the years ahead.  I strongly believe it will turn out that Florida and Texas were lying about infections and deaths -- and their "error" (i.e., intentional cover-up of true) rates will be substantially higher than other states.  (Other states, too -- but Florida and Texas seem a very safe prediction.)

For now, a lot of Texas-based publications, e.g., Houston Chronicle, Texas Tribune, Texas Monthly, have reported on the discrepancy between the reality and reported numbers.  Same goes for Florida.  It's a lie the right-wing media loves to amplify.

Not trolling, just asking:  Can you share the source for that 32% figure?  I've never seen something trying cases that strongly to restaurants/bars, would like to read. In our area the bars have been backed for a month and a half and cases are down by nearly 1/3 over that time.

I CAN' HEAR YOU - YOU BIG STUPUD HEAD"

Jesus, I thought Canada was the shining example we were supposed to follow. Ontario has 5x the population of Utah, but 10x the cases...

Ontario's getting up there, but Michigan is twice as bad at the moment and North Dakota still holds the all-time high score.

Also, Alberta needs to get its shiat together. WTF is going on over there guys?

Atlantic provinces, you're cool. Keep doing your thing and don't let your guard down.

My friends in Toronto were under lockdown orders last I checked and aren't expecting the vaccine until July at the earliest. They just can't understand how I'm already vaccinated and enjoying nights on the town with friends while we watch the COVID numbers continue to improve.

GrinzGrimly: thealgorerhythm: GrinzGrimly: Sim Tree: GrinzGrimly: mudesi: Reported deaths are down 75% since Texas reopened.  If you want to believe the Republicans have coopted the Democrats that run the population centers in Texas and pulled off a massive coordinated conspiracy to hide cases, that's your prerogative, but it's highly doubtful that DeSantis is hiding bodies in the Everglades or Abbott is sinking them in the Gulf.

It's scary that Democrats are screaming 'trust The ScienceTM' but when presented with evidence that cuts against their narrative, they just chalk it off as the product of a right-wing conspiracy.


Vaccines, how do they work?

You are a dumbass.

Texas ranks 45th in terms of per capital vaccinations (for reference the shiat show that is Michigan ranks 27th.)

It must be another Republican conspiracy to hide true vaccination numbers, amiright?

It's also possible that you are both a dumbass and ignorant of the facts.  We'll all just assume that's the case until you can reconcile the disconnect.

Simply because they have fewer vaccinations than someone else does not mean that they have zero vaccinations. Texas still has a lot of vaccinations and this is buoying their numbers.

New Jersey ranks near to top of per capita vaccinations yet has 3x the per capita cases as Texas.  Why isn't the much higher rate of vaccinations buoying New Jersey's number too?

Shut the everloving fark up.

DumbTrumpSupporter: thealgorerhythm: NotThatGuyAgain: Whatever you say, subby.  Georgia has been pretty much wide open for 11 months.  Other than the same Winter surge every state saw, things are going great here.

Gee, if you look at Georgia next to a state of comparable size with an effective government it doesn't look so good. Also, generally worse than national trends.

You're seriously suggesting that Washington has an effective government?
Holy shiat.


Well Washington is #7 for life expectancy and Texas is like #30 before COVID. And doing better with COVID.

So no. You're right. Please continue to own me.

Last August, the lady I was working with and I couldn't believe how much better Canada was doing than the uS. At one point, the entire province she was from (She was Canadian, but working in the US) had less total cases than Utah, despite having 2-3 times the population. WTF happened up there? They were doing great.

My word, we're trying!  They just started another lockdown after over 100 new cases this week.
