re: So Corona was in decline, the progs were harping how opening up would kill us, but now? - wm72
[quote] I thought the progs were all worried about Bad orange man killing grandma?[/quote] Your first problem is succumbing to rampantly exaggerated childlike generalities. ...

re: So Corona was in decline, the progs were harping how opening up would kill us, but now? - wm72
You must not live in a larger city. Many of the younger people that you see at these protests have been in the news for overcrowding parks/beaches and, here in Brooklyn, many of the ones that acted like the floodgates had opened the first day a few weeks ago that NY had their first small decrea...

re: WHO: Masks should only be worn by healthy people when caring for covid patients - wm72
[quote]CDC isn't over third world countries that have multiple areas that don't even have basics like running water like WHO. Much less an adequate supply of PPE and health care clinics and facilities as well as health care workers for that matter. [/quote] Exactly. I imagine these guidelines...

[quote]Washington DC. Standard greeting is not who you are/what’s your name, but rather what you do and where you went to school. Some of the most superficial people live in that city.[/quote] Washington DC seems like the last stronghold of the prototypical yuppie antagonists from 1980s movi...

re: Alabama Board Coronavirus Thread - Politics Free Edition - wm72
The distinction that's not really made is whether a lot of professors are saying this due to their concerns about community spread potential of hundreds of thousands of kids travelling from all over the country or just their own personal welfare. I would think that colleges will be able to put...

re: Destroya considering making the Quarters "pedestrian only"- no cars allowed - wm72
I lived in Cagliari, Italy and had a retail shop as well that were both in a vehicle limited area. The vehicle limits on most streets were from around 10am until 10pm . . . There were some streets that ran shuttles. Deliveries were either between 10pm-10am or in mini-trucks or by ...

re: Alabama Board Coronavirus Thread - Politics Free Edition - wm72
[quote]There's no way that's accurate, unless they're still omitting the patients sent to the hospital prior to death from the nursing home totals. 23,600 total deaths in the state and somewhere just south of 6,000 nursing home deaths does NOT equal 13%.[/quote] Even if it's 20-25%, that's...

re: Alabama Board Coronavirus Thread - Politics Free Edition - wm72
It could just be that it spread so much in the city proper and a lot more nursing homes are in suburban areas. Agree with Justgetitright that the NY explosion is strange all around but suppose it's similar to northern Italy in that most of Italy had less cases than most southern US states ou...

[quote]I actually wished the percentages of nursing home deaths were higher honestly . A 1:1 or less ratio is not very good IMO . I think breaking it down by age makes me feel better about my situation[/quote] Yeah I was thinking the same thing. Especially looking at that 13% for New York. ...

re: JBE's late April's request to Trump "200k tests a month" - wm72
Business owners --like factories/processing plants/construction -- have been the main people I've heard push for the availability of huge amounts of tests. There are many that are having workforce infection issues that's setting back production, even in places without a large amount of overall ...

re: Alabama Board Coronavirus Thread - Politics Free Edition - wm72
Sure there are cases that are just spread through the community at large but stands to reason that the ones of those infecting many more people are likely when those people go to work. The one factory I know about in Alabama has had cases since April but even through a lot of measures to stop i...

[quote]Will only grow more powerful after Covid. Im starting to get to a point where I'm OK with higher prices from the local guy.[/quote] Completely agree. For that 10-15%, I think about the money circulating through my own community to support better jobs, local tax base, not having anothe...

re: Y’all got your masks ready for Saturday night in Tiger Stadium? - wm72
Problem is going to be a decision to reduce crowd for the next home games if they do have trouble enforcing it. All premature right now as no one knows what the fall holds for cases/spread but I've read a lot of ADs talking about masks likely being key to allowing larger crowds. ...

re: Venting and discouraged, considering possible move to the Portland area - wm72
Portland and all that area is really cool and having friends there is a great start. There's going to be work in Portland if you're mechanically inclined, have construction skills and a responsible serious worker. Most important is continually meeting people as that's where leads will...

[quote]No one at the CDC recommended taking COVID positive patients and admitting them to nursing homes. You keep implying that they did. [/quote] This is from the same paragraph as the one I quoted earlier. It is from the actual CMS March 13,2020 guidelines that informed all the controversy: ...
