The horrific destruction of our economy continues. Glad some people are doing their part and wearing their little dehumanizing masks all day. They look so cute.

Default wave is next, 6-12 months and it’s Thunderdome. Of course, we’re already there in many shithole cities thanks to the rioters and looters.

Just to add some humor. I was watching a news report of a Best Buy being looted. The looter was a woman leaving the store with speakers without a mask. Isn't the first thing they teach you in looter school is to wear a mask?

Hard to tell whether increasing case numbers are from increasing infections, or just more testing. I look at daily deaths in our county. They've been 0-2/day for weeks now, which tells me even though they're finding more infections, more people aren't dying, at least not yet. Hospitalizations have stayed at a fairly stable level, but not decreasing much, but apparently they aren't as sick.

Improvements in treatment? Just spit-balling...

Could be, hadn't thought of that one. Not sure what though, they don't have much Remdesivir here. My wife's PCP still uses Plaquenil and claims good results.

Didn't they say at some point that the ventilators actually ended up being worse for people? Maybe they have stopped using them as frequently?

Yes, that was one concern. Number of people on vents here has been fairly stable

No new Controlavirus cases from the Ozarks. Fear doom porn wrong again and again. By all means though, keep everyone locked in their homes, six feet apart, and breathing in C02 from dumbass masks.

What a fucking scam.

I'm a lot more open to theories about the virus mutating away from its earlier levels of virulence. Or the effects of UV light. Or something else that has a scientific basis.

And I absolutely donít care if this helps or harms Trump, this is not about politics.

Yeah, I'm not implying it works one way or the other. It was more to reiterate that the name of the journal or researcher does not always mean more credibility in the papers they publish. Peer review is vital.

We donít really know what happened in Wuhan, the ChiComs lie about everything. What we do know is it never spread to major Chinese cities. Clue #1 this thing wasnít shit.

Northern Italy is a notorious hot bed for seasonal flu deaths. In fact major studies in 2017 looked directly into this phenomenon. The traditional seasonal flu deaths in Northern Italy are far above the norm. Folks saw Italy and panicked without knowing this.

Unsure about Spain, didnít pay much attention.

New York is a mega city with huge numbers of people camped on top of one another. Their elderly population is also huge, and as we now know a large percentage of deaths in NYC were from nursing homes where Cuomo knowingly sent positive patients. It was a perfect storm. Even then, the death counts were far below originally estimated, and hospitals were never overrun.

Thank you for your open mind.

I don’t care about the battle regarding this drug, but study trashing it has been retracted.
