Your Level of Concern About the Coronavirus......on a scale of 1-10

Look for a big spike coming Fairwarning, thanks to yours truly

me and 4 of my chicago friends were up camping and hiking in Van Buren State park with 7 of our Grand Rapids and Muskegon friends.

that park was PACKED!!!! I think there are well over 200 campsites and they were FULL. most had close to 10 people there, very festive atmosphere. We joined many neighbor's parties for games of Cam Jam and cornhole and sharing micro brews and our Chicago covid strains of course.
 
The idiot governor of Florida declared that sports stadiums can be at full capacity in the state, despite the obvious advantage it would give the Dolphins, the team has announced they'll stick with only allowing 13,000 fans to attend the games, which of course is the smart and responsible thing to do. On the other hand, Dan Mullen the idiot coach of the Gators was calling for a packed house this week when his team plays LSU. The Gators just had to postpone the game due to Covid running rampant on the Gators team, LOL

They now have the option, which is good, the govt should never dictate to business's what to do. Thank god for wise men like Descantis.

What a collection of morons

Dan, Dan, Dan.

His desire to increase the odds of winning a football game by creating a super-spreader event is mind-numbing. Priorities out of whack? There's no doubt about that.

In Florida's home opener, they were allowed to have 17,000 fans. Now, he wants five times that, breathing, sweating and coughing all over each other,
 
Hospitalizations continue their steady climb

from a low of 28.6k on Sept 20

an increase of 30% in 24 days

at 37k now and seems to be picking up speed.

peaks of about 60 in mid April and Mid July

more rural hospitals now, I guess it's nice for the Rural hospitals to get a shot at lying about covid cases, hospitalizations and deaths so they can get their stimulus $ too

Hospitals are losing their asses this year with the elective surgeries being way down.

Damn right it’s over

New cases are meaningless. It only means they’re testing more. This will finally be the time rising deaths don’t follow rising cases
 
great couple of weeks for the CDC...

1) admitted very few deaths have been caused by Covid and not lingering health issues
2) new numbers are right in line with a bad seasonal flu season
3) now say they have never suggested that masks protect the wearers after reporting that 85% of those infected wore masks "always" or "often"



Fraudci is the perfect idiot to be the expert

Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are feeling “demoralized” because Trump officials have been imposing “line-by-line edits” to their official health recommendations during the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the CDC has been subjected to extraordinary pressure from the Trump White House that has included edits aimed at “altering language written by CDC scientists on church choirs, social distancing in bars and restaurants as well as internal summaries of public-health reports.”

Very interesting - now give the death figures week by week.
 
Do you believe the death figures won’t once again begin to rise?

And have you brushed up yet on lagging indicators?
How long does the lag take, it's been 6-7 weeks now, jesus, it didn't happen, let it go.

I see france had 30,000 cases today, that would be like us having 200K, what happened ,dont masks work? most of europe in a full panic, shutting shit down right and left, meanwhile Sweden just sails along their merry way.
 
99.99% you won't run into Rona on a commercial airline such as United. That's what the Feds came out with today. Lol, the industry is flat ass broke so they try running this crap.
Dumbest thing I've ever heard, every breath a person takes goes through the mask right, yet they pretend that a tiny virus cant possibly. Hysterical.

Now I'm not saying it's dangerous to fly, I'm saying masks dont help a bit.
 
Looks like since cases had their recent bottom on sept 12 they are up about 50%, while deaths are down 7%. Is covid getting worse or better.
the answer is nuanced, right?

the country is a very big place.

the result of being a great country with brilliant medical and science minds and private companies pitching in to help a great government means when an area experiences a lot of cases and death, that we will respond with an increase capacity to test, and more people will want to get tested due to the prevalence of the virus in their local circles and news cycles.

more tests more cases as we all well know.

but meanwhile rural areas are having the virus matriculate to their areas, where a)testing capacity and turn around is quite a bit less and remarkably slower on the turn around compared to health care systems in more population dense areas and b) the rural areas tend to have a smaller % of the population seeking out testing


so you see a bit of a teeter totter affect as we shift. 60K cases and 800 deaths today are coming from very different areas than 800ish deaths on March 30 or June 17 or Sept 17 to some extent. in the summer for example we were seeing 400+ deaths just from Florida and Texas combined. Now it's closer to 200 with the other 200 being added in midwest and heartland areas.

The other great thing, is that our medical community is working together globally to come up with the best ways to fight the virus in the various ways it presents across populations. So the prognosis is very different today for a 65 year old dude than it would have been in March or July, and it will continue to improve, because that is science, that is progress, that is our American spirit

so we best get an idea of how each region, state, county, city, hospital are doing we when look at the individual pieces of our mosaic and understand their individual experience will not always fit with a broad sweeping statement of how our country is doing.

Ask a Doctor or nurse in an Albany New York hospital how bad covid is right now, compared to a doctor in Shawano Wisconsin and you'll get different answers.

Let's just keep tracking those hospitalizations

did they go up or down today?

True, but these states that are spiking now will decline in due time, just like they did everywhere else that had a surge - probably fairly soon, so if they can tough it out and get past this, it should be smooth sailing.

neither science or mathmatics has not given us an affirmative answer to that hypothesis yet in the unique American experience of responses and flow of this virus

look at Ohio for instance. They are starting on their 3rd spike in Hospitalizations. If you had to put $ on it, do you think they are going to have "smooth sailing throughout October, November, December?

look at these hospitalization peaks
