Someone need to step up and tell the American people what the virus really is a bad cold or flu. All this shut down business needs to stop. It comes down to personal responsibility. If masks are the answer fine everyone one wear one but open everything up. We are makes this virus bigger than it is and needs to stop. Will you get sick? Maybe just like a flu or cold. Open everything up and deal with it. 

It will disappear in a couple of days?
Hospitals send everyone home?

The only people who need to be tested are health care workers, the elderly, and those with underlying health conditions.  If you are young (under 50) and healthy and are taking up a test kit, crowding

This country is being bright to its knees by fear....not the virus. Recovery from getting the virus is a couple weeks. Recovery of society from this hysteria will be years.

It’s sad that about half the country still believes outlets like msnbc and cnn.  You would think after they lied everyday for 3 years about Russian collusion, people would get the hint of what their t

Again.......40ish hospitalized in ND and around 250 in MN. So should both states still brace for this hospitalization surge we have been told was inevitable? 

Just keep rampinging up testing just to pad to the "positive cases" to scare everyone some more. That's the new current measuring stick.......positive cases.

 

 

 

......but hey at least we aren't Florida where medical labs weren't even counting negative tests and putting out 98-100% daily virus positivity testing rates.

Borrowed from Oxbow's previous post.

Per CDC (nationwide)...

166 influenza deaths this season 17 years old and younger.

Roughly 5x more deaths than COVID-19 to date.

Many states in the south not so fortunate.

Overall 3.6% positivity rate.

Recent "uptick" in positive cases in past few days reported by the local media.........number not discussed is the positive testing rate around 2% during that time frame.

Give you credit for your persistence.
Hopefully no 2nd wave this fall.
Coronavirus infections coinciding with flu cases this fall could create some difficult times in American public health.

ZERO: the number of positive COVID-19 cases across the entire 24-team MLS delegation -- players, coaches, staffs, league personnel and others -- staying at the host hotel in Florida from July 12-13. The league tested 1,227 people during this time.

 

Pretty good small sample size.

1% of US population officially has coronavirus. Experts say real number is much higher

Quote

 

More than 1% of the United States population has tested positive for coronavirus, but various factors have led experts to believe millions more Americans have contracted the virus.

According to Johns Hopkins University, there are 3.30 million confirmed COVID-19 cases in the U.S. as of Monday, July 13. The country’s census bureau reports the current population is 329.9 million.

But how many Americans have really had coronavirus? The real number is difficult to determine, but dozens of states may be undercounting how many of their residents have had the virus.

Despite guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 28 states were not reporting probable cases, CNN reported last month.

CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield said June 25 “there actually were 10 other infections” for each reported case, NPR reported. He estimated between 5% to 8% of the American population had been exposed to the virus, according to NPR.

Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology said that by June 18, around 17.5 million people in the country had Coronavirus at one point, Business Insider reported.

This would be good to know.

Florida hospital system CEO says ICUs are stocked, fully prepared, and not overwhelmed

 

Quote

 

The CEO of one of Florida’s largest healthcare providers says it has the intensive care unit capabilities to handle the recent uptick in coronavirus-positive tests.

"We have adequate personal protective equipment," AdventHealth CEO Terry Shaw said. "We have a stockpile of ventilators, and we have an amazing clinical team that have taken best practices from around the world and put them into our treatment protocols."

Shaw says ICU capacities in his hospital system are running between 85%-90% capacity, and they are prepared to make more space if needed, according to Spectrum News 13.

Not surprisingly,  70% of the staff at Fargo schools want to do virtual learning or hybrid style this year. But I am sure they want to get paid the same amount. 

The parents were roughly 50/50 between all in classroom vs hybrid/all online.

Yeah, I think Warren is staying in the Senate.

Well, he's not choosing AOC.  LOL.

Environmental policy unveiled by Biden yesterday leans more toward AOC/far left demands.  Might be tough to swallow for families and states relying on income from energy, logging and coal.  Also will drive up cost of manufacturing in US as the demands to meet increased emission regulation is a huge percentage of component cost in equipment and automobiles.  Can be done much cheaper overseas.

What is the Fargo hybrid plan?

In my suburban DC district our option is 2 days in person (hybrid option) or 4 days online.  For the in-person version, they are filling in with other online materials, and probably homework for the older kids.  Selection ends today and the current tally is 53% choosing hybrid and 47% choosing online.  The teachers are about inverse, 54% online vs 46% hybrid.

The biggest energy states are generally not competitive anyway, and if it hurts him in TX the race is already in his favor.  I have not looked at it, so I won't give my opinion.

We will see.  For high school I would think hybrid is OK. Elementary....nah.

Do you think developing virtual learning or a hybrid style takes less of a teachers time?

100%.  Its done for them and/or in a large group of peers and they all execute the same curriculum by grade, just like before.  They aren't reinventing the wheel.

Now let's talk about face-to-face time with the kids...no behaviors....no room organizing every day.  Yah.
