    They can't deny the number of people checking out of the economy for too long. Real people sees the real things going on, and then just sit back and wait. It's pretty easy to not spend money waiting this out for the optional vacations and shows we used to go see.

    The longer this is in denial, the more the "live people there" industry will suffer.

    This is all on you, deniers.

I admit it's barely above high school micro level understanding, but I'd wager that's far higher than trollbot's understanding is.
      Good post! Taking the time to respond but sticking with the quips, got it.

      There are no points here to have a discussion around?

        Good post! You strung two sentences together. Maybe next time you will get a thought in there?

        • Even Captain Kool-Aid (Dump) is on tape admitting this virus is deadly and easily spread. But, let's all just complain about some **** about false positives.

          • When you've got absolutely no legitimate reason to question the facts at hand, it's best to cling to something utterly irrelevant in the scheme of things and bludgeon that one tiny fact to death, without offering any context whatsoever.

            It's the anti-vax playbook. It doesn't matter what "common side effects include" actually means in a clinical sense when you can just say "ReAd TeH INsErt!"

                      So hospitalizations are down, ICU is down and deaths are down and the only thing being harped in the media is "cases." Wouldn't context mean discussing what "cases" means and the application which they are being derived from?

                      And if different Countries are using different Cycle Thresholds wouldn't that lead to different types of data about "Cases."

                        Must have been 1000 people there. For who?

                        I saw Johnny Marr last summer, and there were fewer people there. Proving once and again that the heartland is pure whitebread.

                        • Also, one note on Cuomo (and other governor's) move to "sent COVID patients back to die at nursing homes! He killed people!".

                          There was an issue early on where post-acute care facilities - SNFs, rehab hospitals, hospice homes, etc. - were refusing any new patients. Hospitals were at the breaking point and needed the beds, and there was a large amount of patients who no longer needed acute care but couldn't be discharged to their homes. In normal times, these patients are discharged to those same post-acute care facilities. First, acute care isn't needed anymore. Second, Medicare and every single private payor in the country would stop paying for acute care when it isn't needed (there's an insane labyrinth of "utilization review" that determines whether a payor will actually cover a hospital stay). With those other facilities refusing to take patients, what were we to do?

                          I do not care for Cuomo. I think he's done a passable job with COVID, but he was in a no-win situation here. Existing laws require all care facilities to take necessary precautions for infectious patients. Some never have them - short-term rehab hospitals, for example, might not have the infrastructure for a true isolation setup - but most are required to maintain iso protocols. Cuomo was mainly reminding them of this, and preventing them from refusing patients they'd otherwise take if they had other infectious diseases.

                          It is pathetic and sad that many of these facilities either did absolutely nothing or, in some horrific cases, mixed COVID patients with non-COVID patients (see the VA hospital in Holyoke, MA. Seriously, people should be put in prison for that), but what was Cuomo to do?

                          Again, this is a red herring ginned up by dishonest people, counting on the masses not knowing the ins and outs of out healthcare system.


                          But... but... PCR! Sensitivity! Something about sero-something!

                              Good response. You are proving, post after post that you feel the need to respond but can't answer with any sort of reasonable thought. I wonder what you are afraid of?

                              Any how, look at that 5:30 pm, lock in for the national news and get your "Cases" update. With so much context of course.
