  1. Interesting data visualization of State -by-state comparison of current R naughts, and historic trends: Rt COVID-19 These are up-to-date values for Rt, a key measure of how fast the virus is growing. It’s the average number of people who become infected by an infectious person. If Rt is above 1.0, the virus will spread quickly. When Rt is below 1.0, the virus will stop spreading. https://rt.live/
  2. They used clipart, and did not even develop their own design --- Someone linked to it on Reddit, but I can't seem to find the thread right now...

  4. Regarding the development of immunity for asymptomatic (the 35%± never-symptomatic) carriers, it should not matter for that individual anyway since you would think that if they 'get it' a second time, it would again be asymptomatic. We need to figure out if the 35%± never-symptomatic are virus-shedders or not. If they are not, than can we infer that they have immunity already - maybe they had a coronavirus infection previously vis-a-vis an upper or lower respiratory infection in the past? Sometimes the flu goes thru a house and others do not get it. My son had H1N1 a few years back and no one else got it. Do people carry the flu virus as asymptomatic? I mean, no one would get swabbed for H1N1 unless they go to their GP and are sick.
  5. exactly, there would not be this endless debate about mask policies if our leaders had stepped up to the plate and promoted the use of masks.
  6. Gov. DeWine has indicated that testing is open for all. With that and the pop-up testing, the # of tests given in Ohio has increased quite bit, so you would assume the # of asymptomatic carriers getting tested is going up as well. The positive rate is going up but not increasing a lot, so one wonders is that a result of more asymptomatic carriers getting tested or community spread or a little bit of both. The hospital metrics are still 'encouraging', but as others had said, the next few weeks will need to be watched in that regard. Still we can knock this down by wearing masks
  7. Are the # of tests actually administered approaching the statewide capacity of testing? I believe up until last week you had to meet certain criteria to get tested. Now it is open to everyone
  8. Torn: Flying the confederate flag = Free Speech and kneeling during the National Anthem = same. Why don't we focus efforts on making sure we are educating properly about the Civil War? (I know of an instance when it was not covered in a HS History Class because its too controversial). I, for one, was unequivocally unaware of the "Lost Cause" narrative in the South, until I watched the Grant miniseries on History.
  9. He charged? More like he walked up...The "device" in his right hand is a smartphone, maybe you have heard of them?
  10. Its easy to fake a head injury, we all know that.
  11. No, its not sarcasm --- its inre SurfOhio's post. The marches and protests are to change things => yet when a politician actually does... umm I don't believe you --- here's some evidence from 5 years ago.
  12. ^ People can change, you hear...
  13. Hence, the reason behind the Bible PR Stunt....
  14. Another thing I heard is that the libraries are waiting 3 days to process returned books to the shelf and books that are on hold to the lendee. Some stores are waiting to re-stock returned items with a similar waiting period. Knowing what we know (Science!) this process is just silly and just obfuscates the facts of how its actually transmitted.
  15. https://www.wcpo.com/money/consumer/dont-waste-your-money/kings-island-sues-ohio-demanding-to-reopen Personally, I am bit surprised that the petri dishes that are indoor family entertainment centers and the like were allowed to open before a hundred acre outdoor amusement park. Kings Island now has tents just outside the main entrance, presumably to allow testing and screening prior to entry, so they must be think it is soon..
