(Yahoo)   How is Covid in AZ? Well, you could look at its deaths per capita, which is now the same as New York's even though NY was hit early by the disease before treatments or vaccine existed Or you could ask the head of AZ's Public Health Assn: "it's bad"   (news.yahoo.com) divider line

So what you're saying is that I might be able to buy a house in Arizona for cheap.

If the areas around Prescott or Flagstaff could fill up ICU beds I would appreciate it.

Thanks!

Every time a voluntarily unvaxxed asshole dies, America becomes a slightly better place.

May Right wing shiatbags continue to Find out, and may it cost them elections.

I've been on vacation over the last two weeks, wandering around the American Southwest. It was fun! I spent most of it in Las Vegas, wandering around and seeing locations that were in Fallout: New Vegas, because I'm a nerd.

Long story short: nobody gave me trouble for wearing a mask until I got to Arizona lol.

I'm of the mindset that we should stop making fun of them because they are a minority that should just be ignored and deplatformed... Of course, before I can stop making fun of them, every news company ever should stop publishing articles about the dozens of cops that quit over have to take their damn shots.

It was in Arizona, and Caesars Legion WOULD be opposed to vaccines, so yes.

In Tucson we see people wearing masks all the time. At Fry's, in restaurants, everywhere. Not sure what part of AZ you visited, it's a big state, but around here it's not a big deal.

It was much, much further north. I basically just drive through Arizona on my way to Santa Fe.

But yeah, of course I'm not gonna judge the WHOLE state. Like, even Texas has its Austin!

Must be Fry's the grocery store, because Fry's Electronics went out of business earlier this year.

How poorly written are Fark headlines these days? Well, you could look at this one, which goes on for much too long and lacks any wit. Or, you could look at the poor punctuation and capitalization and conclude, "They're bad."

I haven't heard my dad (Sierra Vista and Tombstone) complain about it, but I also haven't specifically asked. I will the next time I talk to him.

Analysis finds COVID-19 was the leading cause of death in Arizona
That wasn't the case in other states where governors enacted strict anti-coronavirus measures


According to the research by APHA, Arizona's death rate is also much higher than some of it's similarly sized states.

Researchers compared Arizona to two different states that have similar population sizes: Colorado and Washington.
Washington has a population that is the most similar to Arizona, but researchers found the state had reported 8,234 deaths, only two-thirds of the number of deaths here. Colorado has about 1.5 million fewer people than Arizona, and saw only 7,917 COVID deaths during the same time frame.

Arizona, Colorado and Washington had similar rates for other causes of death.

"You can split hairs on the demographics, but the big differences are the policy changes," Will Humble, executive director of APHA and a former director of the Arizona Department of Health Services, told the Arizona Mirror when asked if comparing the states was a fair comparison

Im in SV nobody has ever told me not to wear a mask in public but there are not as many people anymore actually wearing them. I have had people say you dont have to wear a mask in here but not hostile about it.

In Parker (south of Lake Havasu) I rarely saw anyone wearing masks except hotel front desks and some waitresses as of about a month ago.

At this point, if I get infected, I'm putting it to good use. I'm going out for REVENGE. Maybe visit some megachurches, a Cracker Barrel, a gun & knife show...

And because of the climate THEY helped create, they won't be able to do a damned thing to stop me.
