Does it have to be the whole state?  Because Louisiana is kinda screwed along the coast / hurricane path.

fragMasterFlash: So every school in the southeast US will be in lockdown before homecoming?


No, they'll wait until after homecoming, wouldn't want to spoil the kids' experiences growing up by canceling a school dance or deny the old people coming back to celebrate what minor sports achievement their classmates managed thirty years earlier.

Why do you care if we don't vaccinate for covid... everyone else who needs a hospital bed for accidents and other illnesses?

Would be no shock is Florida's already there but hasn't announced it yet because it might "make them look bad".

Neil Degrasse Tyson stated that the ratio of Repubnantcans to Democrats dying is 5:1 but it was without citation.  If that's true then I think we can safely double down assuming that we've already lost 1M to this virus.

OK.

Now that Covid-19 is widely preventing necessary surgeries, hospitals, ICU beds and causing deaths from scores of other causes indirectly, how long before the Trumpers can start pointing to deaths by other causes (not listed as Covid 19 deaths) among the fake numbers that "prove" Covid-19 is not a serious health threat?

I mean, I know about the excedent mortality that started two years ago almost everywhere, but how long before this question is universally begged?

And can they continue to get away with counting lower mortality from anti-Covid measures such as masking and social distancing and turning hermit as "evidence" Covid-19 is less mortal than say, all causes of death combined other than the virus?

Which it isn't.

Among young people (deemed immune to Covid-19) all causes of death are about 0.2% per annum, while lo and behold, Covid-19 is an additional 0.2%, doubling your chances of death from the hoax that causes no deaths.

It's only human to not want others to suffer.  Alas, I myself have found myself hard pressed to feel sorry for individuals who have become incredibly sick from their own bad decisions, especially after proclaiming the virtues of violent revolution and the extermination of anyone who isn't well off, white and God-fearing.

/Not or, and.

My husband broke the fark out of his big toe and sprained is ankle. It's looking and feeling quite gnarly and the soonest they can see anyone is Friday. Normally these receptionists are offering appointments within the hour. I'm in Georgia. Gunowner Kemp is nearly as bad as DeSantis. It doesn't help that everyone and their mother visited Florida in the last month.

I live in Florida. A coworkers husband refused to get the vaccine. He got covid and died. I am sad about his death, but who I really feel bad for is the family who is devastated. Seems very selfish not to get the vaccine. He hurt his family and used up an ICU bed for a week.

Helium is critical for the operation of things like MRI machines, and is a non-renewable resource (over any useful timespan)

Look we have at least one Covidiot TM Fark.com who has claimed that  "covid not so bad" and "that it is mostly old people" who are the ones who are vulnerable. He has also stated that the original estimates of a million dead hasn't been reached so this is no big deal.

Florida is there.  I had to spend this past weekend in Winter Haven for a memorial service.  No masking.  High local spread.  Someone at the memorial is on the board of the local hospital.  He confirmed they're full, and that all the hospitals in 150 miles are full.  They're trying to (quietly) find overflow beds at other kinds of facilities, like rehab centers.

Another person there had a relative in their 80's who is dealing with congestive heart failure.  They were turned away from five hospitals this past week, and were sent home for hospice care.

The only bright spot is that vaccine update is spiking in their county, as people start to internalize what it means that 85% of patients are unvaccinated.

My 80 year old, very liberal in-laws (wife's mom/stepdad) decided a few years ago to move to their condo in Florida when their other possible choice was a liberal college town in Virginia, where we live.

I wonder if they're regretting that decision yet.

Yeah, I just sent a letter to the governor.  His policies are literally killing people, and I said as much in the letter.

...I fully expect a form letter, if I even get a reply.
 
2021-08-31 10:45:49 AM  
Just stop taking unvaccinated by choice COVID patients. Or better yet stuff them all in a warehouse away from the hospital and let nature work it's course like they wanted.
