  1. Frankly I care little about daily positives other than the percent. Tell me about hospitalizations and deaths (raw numbers and percents please).
  2. Do that with a connection with the bridge to nowhere and you have some attractive housing. Walking outside in winter would be eliminated from there to the Union.
  3. Governor Newsom still allowing protests in California. A cynic might say he’s put a portion of his hot spot state in a viral petty dish as some sort of experiment. Mentioning the governor of California, he’s going by do as I say not as I do. Nice. https://www.the-sun.com/news/1080736/california-coronavirus-wineries-closed-gavin-newsom/ More California nonsense: Protests OK; singing in church not. https://www.businessinsider.com/california-bans-singing-in-places-of-worship-coronavirus-surge-2020-7
  4. The chief of police in Miami (sick cops) and the mayor of Los Angeles disagree and point to the riots as spike sources.
  5. No, I can’t; hence use of a form of the word assumption. But if there’s not gained immunity we’re screwed.
  6. Sadly, of late, that gets filed alongside: jumbo shrimp civil engineer paid volunteer
  7. "New cases" data makes for good headlines. The important data is hospitalizations ("Collapse the system!") and deaths. The blue line is a good thing under the assumption that once you've had it you can not catch it again; the blue line minus the orange (?) line is the herd immunity growth line.
  8. Drs. Fauci And Birx are some of the experts of question based on past and present track records.
  9. Given everything in this virus situation to date, you lost me at experts estimate. And what of the recent CDC admission that actual infections may be as much as ten times the reported total. We could be closer to herd immunity than we know or yet understand. https://www.google.com/amp/s/mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKBN23W2PU
  10. Sweden. No lockdown and lower death rate per capita.
  11. India. Brazil. China. Russia. All are having reappearance.
  12. The viruses were here first and will be here after we are gone. Herd immunity is the best weapon we have, a well developed human immune system. But it comes at a price, as does any war.
  13. Protests. Memorial Day. Reopening. The virus will get it’s share. Nature always wins.
  14. One was a human attack; one was nature. Or are you saying COVID was a human attack.
  15. Data https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/testing/individual-states Tests done each day ramping up. At steady positive rate new cases would ... go up. But the data also shows since about June 14 the positive rate is going up. And the incubation is about 14 days we are told. So what happened about 14 days before June 14 that may have kicked up the spread? Hmmm ... were there some large gatherings or something?
  16. We have allowed one thread to go political. Keep it there is the ask. Thank you.
  17. Now three new symptoms: diarrhea, nausea, runny nose. https://www.the-sun.com/news/1047021/cdc-three-new-coronavirus-symptoms-diarrhea-runny-nose/ A while back I said I went through ORD in mid-January and was as sick as I’ve ever been two weeks later to the day for about 36 hours. Coincidence? My symptoms? Nausea, diarrhea, chills, fever, fatigue, body aches ... just like in the CDCs updated list.
  18. It’s a virus. It will run its course and take its share. To quote the old TV commercial, “You can pay me now or you can pay me later.” I say open it all up. Not all will, and they'll damage their local economies (and citizenry*) further. Their choice, But that local control also means local responsibilities — don’t go looking for a Federal bail out for a local decision. I say that because I don’t see a useful trustworthy vaccine before mid-2021. (I will not take any of the first three batches.) Two million, eight hundred thousand Americans, yes, 2,800,000 die annually because ... nature. Welcome to nature. We are not in control. *The physical and mental health damage done already is near incalculable. ER walk-in heart attacks down 40%; ER walk-in stroke down 50%! Missed cancer screens. The “second wave” will be when all those untreated issues can no longer be ignored and show up to the doctor when treatment is not viable.
  19. This is dancing the line of politics. Imagine saying if Brits or Somalis or Peruvians stopped by. No further. Thank you.
  20. This dancing the fine line of politics. I say that because a vote was taken by a city council regarding MPLS PD. That’s fair topic. But not here. And no further. Thank you.
  21. We gave the experts three months, flatten the curve, to get an understanding and prepared. This is viral. This genie is out of the bottle. It will take it’s share. Get over it; viruses kill people. And all we can do is react. We are not in control. Nature is. I say drop all the restrictions. Then you decide how you want to play it. Live your freedom your way.
  22. So, the issues were multifaceted as you kindly listed off. Complex problems seldom have simple origins. Usually it is many disparate issues all threading together.
  23. Slow the spread. Flatten the curve. Both of those admit the virus will come through humanity. We have a little control over how, but none over if. The virus owns if, and it’s not if, it’s will. The virus will go through. The big crowds? To me they are accelerated herd immunity events.
  24. The media is grousing when people are still outside in Tulsa. https://www.mediaite.com/news/watch-viral-videos-show-teeming-throngs-of-maskless-trump-fans-lining-up-for-tulsa-rally/ Tell me the difference between outdoors groups: Tulsa and the 100k in a plaza in Philly a couple weeks ago. Strictly the outdoors aspects. So why was Philly okay but Tulsa is a problem.
  25. The writer is thinking one-dimensionally --> football. As some are prone to say here, college presidents pick conference members, and they use far more than the football criteria.
