Coronavirus Pandemic

If I was Twitter, I would have left the tweet stand. But I suspect that too many people, including those in power, would think it's a good idea.

Center for Cleveland is showing that Geauga County went from 5 cases to 4 cases over the past 24 hours.  Dept of Health reporting error? Or did a positive test come back negative upon retest?

 

See the table near the top of the page:

As it was an opinion piece, Twitter had no business locking it anyway.   That they did says more about them than the Federalist.

 

The fact is this a rather strong and risky version of a vaccine.

Conservatives: We should sacrifice the elderly to save the stonks.  It's the only way.

 

Conservatives: We should also risk our kids' health in order to build immunity.

 

"Pro life" has lost all its meaning.

Meanwhile, Kentucky has its first case of Covid-19 linked to a Federalist-endorsed "coronavirus party". I wonder how many deaths will eventually be linked back to people who caught the virus at this party.

 

 

But Twitter is being mean by censoring them....

 

 

People who do dumb stuff like this should go to the end of line for ventilators if they need one.

It's absolutely irresponsible and dangerous, because as you mention, Trump and those who don't appear capable of independent or critical thought, including some news outlets, will believe it.

Cleveland (NEO) should be in pretty good shape. Between the UH, CCF systems and Metrohealth, as long as the spread is managed, there should be sufficient ICU and general hospital beds/equipment.

DeWine announces that the state is starting to crack down on non-essential businesses that are remaining open, and hints that restrictions may be in place for the entire month of April...

 

A huge number of companies - likely well over half - are still in near-full operation.  I work for a distributor to companies that themselves are "essential".  We've literally only lost about 10% of our regular volume, which is typically around $500,000 in sales per day.  

 

Seeing all of the orders fly through this place - there is so much going on in "the economy" that Twitter and "the media" doesn't talk about because those are overwhelmingly white collar worlds where blue collar means coal mines and automobile factories.  There's so much more going on, all of the time, amongst networks of companies that do absolutely zero advertising.  

 

Comically, numerous candle makers are still open, since candles have been deemed "essential".  And I can verify that Pure Romance is in fact still open and distributing their wares.

What is likely, in my opinion, is that this virus is going to go through the population and fade away long before a vaccine reaches mass production. It doesn't mean that everyone is going to get sick from it or even be infected but asymptomatic. It means that if the virus reaches enough of the population and if everyone continues to take precautions, it will allow this virus to fade over an extended period, like 6-12 months.

^ Timeframe sounds about right, but the infections will come in waves as restrictions are lifted and more and more of the population is exposed.

I was chatting with a friend in the UK suffering from COVID-19 tonight.  He's on the upswing after about 10 days of being really sick at home.  One of the symptoms he told me about that I haven't heard about in the media is he has lost his sense of taste and smell.   I guess it's a real thing, and only temporary.  He said it's the strangest thing ever....

A lot of the key businesses here in Cleveland are classified ‘essential ’ and still running pretty much full-tilt. As a side-note, I fully believe that NEO will come out the other side of this in good shape. Our strong basis in industrial manufacturing, speciality chemicals and healthcare should serve us well.

All 3Cs are big on insurance. Most types of claims will probably go down but premiums are going to be harder to collect. I don't know if this is even really that disastrous for life and health insurance in the U.S. Currently the number of cases and deaths would be overshadowed by a worse ordinary flu season. Regular flus are probably going to go way down due to the isolation.

None of these people would actually sacrifice themselves.  They want the poors to sacrifice themselves and make their stonks go up.

^Just like War Pigs.

 

Gen'rals gathered in their masses,
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction,
Sorcerer of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning,
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind,
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh Lord yeah

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role for the poor, yeah

Time will tell on their power minds,
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess,
Wait 'till their judgement day comes, yeah

Now in darkness world stops turning,
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more War Pigs have the power,
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgement, God is calling
On their knees the war pigs crawling,
Begging mercies for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings
Oh Lord yeah

The anti-science party is beyond parody. 

 

I honestly think that there's a significant segment of the population that views these temporary restrictions as a direct assault on their manhood. 

 

In related news, UFC president Dana White gave a really dumb interview today.

I think it's been pretty well established that falsehoods, half-truths, alternate realities, parallel universes and conspiracy theories have become the norm in this administration. Unfortunately their followers are incapable of critical nor independent thought and instead believe this nonsense as if they're deer in headlights.

 

When it comes to COVID-19 disease, the only reliable source on the dais is Tony Fauci. Based upon recent events however, I suspect he will either get fed up and resign or they will force him out for stealing the limelight and contradicting POTUS. There's been friction since 2/28 and Fauci has become less visible over this past week.

I tend to agree, though we may disagree on the degree of precaution needed.

What is likely to come much earlier is pharmaceutical treatments that mitigate the symptoms.

Agreed. Some of those are already happening. And if you get covid-19 and recover, donate plasma.

 

Meanwhile, on the other side of the lakes....

One could argue that calculating mortality rates for both COVID-18 and influenza are  both problematic because we dont have accurate counts of the number of infected for either disease.

 

To my knowledge, I've had the flu twice in 63 years, based upon symptoms, but neither incident was "officially" diagnosed and there may have been other milder infections.
