  • Good News On the Covid Front

    For 78 days the average daily death rate has been over 2000, over the weekend it fell below for the first time in three months. By next week it will be below 1500.

    Vaccinating as many nursing home residents as possible has led to less infection and has freed up hospital space. Docs and nurses have time to treat every patient with as much care as possible.

    The US has about the fourth or so highest rate of vaccination in the world. Israel, the UK, and a couple of tiny countries have done more. We were lucky in that we had vaccine producing factories here, and the first two we made were very good.

    It's a shame a half million people have died, and I hope we wake up and prepare for the next one.

    Increasing population density inevitability leads to increased vulnerability to disease. Andy Coumo wasn't worried about the Wuhan Virus last year at this time because he knew that NY had the best health care system in the world.

      This is what you get for calling the virus Chinese names to mimic Trump.

        "A man from Berkeley, California has been taken into custody after using social media to share threats about killing Asians. Reginald Jackson, a former gang member, allegedly wrote about beating up, blowing up and robbing Asians ahead of the Lunar New Year."

            Yet you can talk about the South African or British variant? People looking for an excuse to beat on someone aren't waiting for me to tell them what their target should be this week. Only a moron would make the argument that you're making, oh wait!

                I don't think the anti Asian hate crimes are due to Trump or fear of the virus from Asia, it's simply black people hating on Asians because Asians work hard, obey the law, go to school, and make more money.

                There is also a new California variant that might be more communicable. Cases in N CA have jumped from 16% to now being half the cases they test, and the variant typically has twice the viral load.

                  The average Asian is X multiple times smarter than the average africans and I think the africans know it then they act out like animals, attacking old women.

                    Now wait a minute rr, there is no race hate by anyone other than whites. Have you not been listening to dimwit news ? We all know that the black community is unable to be racist, it’s just those damn white bastards that ef everything up and hate everyone ! When obumie was elected president for two terms, the whites had nothing to do with it, a population of only 13% elected him all alone !

                      The 40 y.o. who died of corvid in the news today 2/28 probably had a compromised immune system already. Other diseases, treatment drugs, or was living in a bubble. IF you are never exposed to something, chances are you will not develop immunity to it. One example is a baby protected from everything turns out to be affected by everything.

                        I'm sure you Trumpers will like the new two-mask advisory being pushed by the medical community.

                        I didn't see many masks at this afternoon's super-spreader event at the CPAC in Orlando, and the audience was packed together like sardines.

                        I think the main ballroom holds 1400 people.

                          I wonder if CPAC will have a outbreak in a week or two. ?
                          New variant in New Zealand, more contagious and more deadly.

                            During his CPAC speech, Trump said, "And for four years, I fought like hell to save your second amendment."
                            I don't remember any such fight.
                            The only 2A issue that came up during his administration was the legality of bump stocks, and Trump quickly disposed of that by banning them as illegal to own.

                              Got the J&J Covid shot 7 hrs ago - no reaction. The J&J is 100% against severe disease and hospitalization and death. About 65% against lesser infection.
                              One difference is J&J was the only one tested against the B-117 S african variant.
                              All of them can be tweaked as necessary in a reasonable amount of time.
                              We are getting general population to about 25% immunized, need to get more to kick this virus or it will be with us for a much longer time as it mutates faster and faster. Already the
                              S sfrican variant is now known to be more deadly than originally thought.
                              Actually I did not have an apt. I stopped in a CVS to see if they had any cancellations - they did not but took my name. After home a short time I got the call they had a cancellation and I rushed right back 1/2 hour before closing. Thanks go out to CVS.
