  1. I guess "Attending a Presidential Rally" or "Attending a Protest" are 10's, that they didn't feel the need to include?
  2. Evidently there's a new strain of COVID around that's more infectious but may have less severe impact. https://medicalxpress.com/news/2020-07-infectious-strain-covid-dominates-global.html
  3. If only George was alive today, he'd be having a time with all the material readily available!
  4. There was a story on the news last night about these facemask ads. Seems a lot of them are scams; take your order, charge your card, never ship anything.
  5. Some promising information. Even though new cases are up, severity doesn’t seems to be as bad. All the experience helps... https://trib.al/esDlADO
  6. A couple weeks' numbers should be interesting... https://www.lehighvalleylive.com/coronavirus/2020/06/jersey-shore-nightlife-is-back-and-it-scared-the-hell-out-of-me.html?fbclid=IwAR0r_gOX1_szjmhJi5b8IDnprHOmjHYs0P80OHdhO-ybB1kkrzMBnclNtvA
  7. I feel the same of people around here! We know a few who are dead set against wearing a mask, thinking it's a Democratic plot and post all sorts of videos about people claiming that the air inside the mask is unhealthy and full of C02 causing hypercapnia.
  8. Couldn't help but think as I'm reading all this, the scene from Jaws (yeah I know it's old) about the mayor and keeping the beaches open. Then while searching for the scene, see that someone made a parody of it with Trump as the mayor!
  9. You're that paranoid that you make your wife wear a mask?
  10. The 1918-1920 flu pandemic came in three major waves. After the first wave in the US, the virus subsided, and Americans were restless to have businesses reopened and for social life to resume. There was a growing movement to stop wearing masks, which had become ubiquitous - so much so that The Anti-Mask League of 1919 was formed. These were protests from those who thought the public health ordinance violated their liberty. The virus came back with a vengeance in the fall and was much deadlier than the first wave, eventually killing more than 675,000 Americans and killing around 100 million of the 500 million it infected worldwide before it was over. This was before mass vaccination, before the electron microscope; this is the tragedy of herd immunity and stubborn ignorance. Viruses aren't political; they don't care about your theories or speculations or projections. They're unthinking parasites only wanting to replicate and use your body as a host. Wear a mask.
  11. And unfortunately even more carries to infect more people...
  12. Trumpster also wants to stop federal funding for testing as well. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jun/25/us-coronavirus-testing-sites-federal-support-cut-officials-alarm
