Deaths. iirc, the case count is like 5500?cwerdna wrote: ↑Sat May 30, 2020 2:08 am^^^
Did you mean 100 new cases? They were at 103 deaths at May 13 (NPR piece) and you say 167 now.
https://kutv.com/news/coronavirus/navaj ... more-death mentions 102 new cases.
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/coronaviru ... originals/ looks like the CBSN piece I saw. I had watched it on my Roku 3 w/the CBS or CBS News app.
OT: South Korea has reported some recent spikes in new cases:
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-52845015 - "79 new cases were recorded, the highest daily figure in two months."
https://abcnews.go.com/Health/wireStory ... s-70920078 - 58 new cases
Anyone who spent that much time in school is definitely brilliant. What's he accomplished since he left office with unlimited time from not having to worry about running the country and being free from worrying about how to earn an income like the rest of us?DaveinOlyWA wrote: ↑Fri May 29, 2020 7:12 amWhen will people EVER understand that addressing "current" situations and failings can NOT happen when referring to some past action by someone else??Oilpan4 wrote: ↑Thu May 28, 2020 8:51 amWhat would biden do?
Let's see him and Obama let the swine flu run loose for months, waited for 1,000 people to die before declining a state of emergency and putting in travel restrictions in place which by then was definitely too late.
I could sum up the obama biden swine flu response as "too little, too late".
You say Obama "waited" until 1,000 people died before doing anything. I say you cherry picked an event as a basis for your statement. Here is my cherry; trump's delay likely caused AT LEAST an additional 35,000 deaths. Score; trump 35,000....Obama (arguably) 1,000
You might want to consider the parallels of any comparison between Obama (who was a BRILLIANT man) who relied HEAVILY on his advisors against trump who is also smart but too inwards looking to understand, absorb or accept any outside information including his revolving door of advisors who are fired if they don't listen TO HIM. Now we can all think that "normally" the listening is the other way around but then again, this would be the ONLY normal thing about the trump regime and IT AINT HAPPENING.
In well over a year, the death toll from Swine was 12,000 thousand and change ranking it not even in the top 20 for cause of death. Today, we see 12,000 people A WEEK dying from COVID 19. Compare those numbers
Finally; I mentioned the extra 35,000 deaths trump's delay cost but it was early, information was available, the advisors were doing a great job of giving their dire predictions but trump (who already knew everything) slow stepped it thinking it was a "phase"... a "bump in the road" that it "will pass"
Well that didn't happen and eventually his advisors brought his mind to the shocking conclusion that he didn't know everyt... Oh wait! No, that isn't what happened. What happened is too many people started dying. ONLY when trump realized it wasn't going away on its own did he decide he should do something so my take? That 35,000 estimate is way too low but I am will to wipe both Obama's 1,000 and trump's 35,000 slate clean
BECAUSE; trump's CURRENT actions of ridiculing the CDC, doctors against him, people choosing to wear masks, etc. will cause the current death toll to double by the end of the year so it won't be 200,000 on New Year's Eve, because trump's actions will cause an ADDITIONAL 100,000 deaths so make it a quarter million dead.
I will revisit this post in 6 months. Until then; WEAR YOU EFFING MASK!

Oops. Couldn't help but feed the troll. After all of that fud he must be hungry.
Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without a macrolide for treatment of COVID-19: a multinational registry analysis. This was from a real study from The Lancet. There are many more real studies like this.
I agree, that's completely reasonable as I believe the placebo trials have not been conducted at this point.LeftieBiker wrote: ↑Thu May 28, 2020 10:01 pmThe Placebo Effect is real, and can result in actual better outcomes - especially when the participants don't know it's a placebo. I have no doubt that believing that taking the above drug makes some people better able to fight off the COVID virus. That doesn't, however, make the drug itself an effective treatment. Vitamin C would be a better candidate, as it will do some good even if it doesn't combat the virus, and no harm.
I posted this today at another site:
Today I requested that my Lowes.com account be canceled. We have
used it for years, but after having them refuse to add a package of
paper towels to an $80 fencing order to be picked up outdoors (while
giving a lame excuse that they couldn't tell if it was in stock or
not, despite their site indicating that it was, but could only be
purchased "in-store") today, I canceled the order, told them exactly
why, and told them we'd now be shopping for building supplies
elsewhere. I don't know why everyone is giving businesses a pass on
not selling even limited quantities of paper towels and toilet paper
outside of the store interior, but it has to stop. They are forcing
people to literally risk their lives to buy toilet paper, just so
their sales will be a little higher.
