2 deaths, 45 coronavirus cases linked to Skagit Valley choir practice on March 10
https://www.king5.com/article/news/heal ... dfb7ab3d1a
https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/mm6919e6.htm seems to be a CDC study on the above event.
Following a 2.5-hour choir practice attended by 61 persons, including a symptomatic index patient, 32 confirmed and 20 probable secondary COVID-19 cases occurred (attack rate = 53.3% to 86.7%); three patients were hospitalized, and two died. Transmission was likely facilitated by close proximity (within 6 feet) during practice and augmented by the act of singing.
Lockdown protesters shout 'be like Sweden' — but Swedes say they are missing the point

According to the Swedes, however, American admirers of their approach are confusing their own beliefs with what is a prudent and carefully planned public health policy.

“I would describe these Republicans as turncoats,” Ragnarsson, who lives in Stockholm, says.

“You run the risk of sacrificing a large proportion of low-income earners and others who do not have adequate health insurance,” she says.

All Swedes have access to health care regardless of their income or ability to pay, and lifting a lockdown in the country would not leave the poor much more vulnerable to disease.

'be like Sweden'? Maybe the US can finally discuss the 's-word' in an intelligent manner.

Today's shorter bike ride of 7.5 miles (trying to beat a storm front) showed me no masks. I wear a light balaclava that I pull over my nose and mouth as needed. I did find a kid's mask lying on my sidewalk this morning.

Everyone here on the Big Island wears a mask. We are fortunate that we live on an island and can dictate what people who fly in do. Our 14 day mandatory quarantine for travel between islands and for anyone coming from off island has helped us to keep out numbers low. As of today we have 1 active case.
Our county also has an order that you must wear a mask to go into any business. I have not seen anyone not wearing a mask in any business I have been to. So here it is working well. But as soon as they let tourists back things will get really out of control. Health care here is pretty bad in the best of times so it would be easy to overwhelm the health care that we have.

NRA rules. Pull gun, get what you want. Private property doesn't matter, if you have the gun and they don't.
Try that and let us know how it turns out.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/national ... story.html
OWOSSO, Mich. — Armed members of the Michigan Home Guard stood outside Karl Manke's barbershop, ready to blockade the door if police arrived. They were determined to help Manke, 77, reopen his shop Monday, in defiance of state orders, and dozens joined them, wearing Trump sweatshirts and Trump cowboy hats and waving Trump flags.
Isn't that just ... Special?

77 isn't a good age to get Covid-19. Hopes and prayers.
Thank you that story "made my day" haha.

Sure.
They have a school voucher program and no minimum wage and a strict rigorously enforced immigration system.
I can talk about that kind of socialism all day.

State mandated minimum wage not needed - they have powerful and effective unionization, and those organizations negotiate rates that become what is effectively the minimum wage within their membership. The least you could do is understand the subject you're writing about before you write.

So what you're saying is the unions are everywhere and no one can get a job unless they are part of a union?
That sounds wonderful as I have only found unions serve 3 purposes.
Collect dues.
Protect the hierarchy.
Protect and promote nepotism and/or incompetence.
You say they protect minimum wage but unions are the only entity in the United States that can get away with violating minimum wage laws.
