        Something that is not happening. People are NOT thinking. Had a family member message me today asking my opinion re whether the kid should return to University or not. I laid out all the stuff I knew. GOt a comment back- I don't see how that will work. Yup. Why are the schools presenting it like they are going to be successful. As a parent it is tough to talk about it to the kid. $$.

        Our schools here have delayed opening. In the last couple of days our numbers are going up and there are stories of failures. I would not want to be teaching in a kid school. I keep saying people should have a pool for when tey get their first case- if they can make it past day 1.

                But it's pretty disappointing that instead of taking care of Americans, it's a comparison to everyone else, in the search for a stat where we are "better."

                Again, how in the world did this become a political issue? The fact that he turned it into one is criminal.

Instead of constantly harping about his infirmities, you should be respectful and help him find a place where he can both be safe and feel like he is respected and loved. This isn't 50 years ago; there are plenty of nice options out there, and many of them would even allow him to come and go, as long as he is accompanied by a responsible adult.

                          I don't know who that guy is, or his background, but that guy is saying things that more people need to say and understand.


                          Edit: On second thought, is this the same guy that Handy hated because he talked about the data from the cruise ship?

                          That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                          • I only read a little of it, but it really drives me crazy when people say "well they had heart conditions so you shouldn't count them as COVID deaths".

                            Nonsense. People can live for years with all types of awful maladies. Add COVID to them, and dead. Rationalizing those deaths away like that is repugnant.

                            • He appears to think herd immunity is around 30%, and that's why China, South Korea and Italy improved, ignoring the draconian lockdown acts those three countries enforced. So he's kind of hit and miss.

                              He accurately predicted the initial trajectory of the pandemic, and when China would peak. On the other hand, in March 2020 he made severely wrong predictions that Israel would suffer no more than 10 COVID-19 deaths, as well as that the USA will have a much faster coronavirus recovery than expected.

                                Who said rationalizing anything away? It’s called context. Context like, the average age of people dying with Covid is over the average life expectancy. Something like 7,000 people pass away every day in this country, day after day. Many are elderly and pass away from the last ailment they encounter, do they not matter as much as a “Covid death.”

                                When you have proper context you start making proper decisions and policies, like you know protecting people who are actually vulnerable to Covid.

                                Without it you get a bunch of nonsense.

                                Does what you said above not go for similar scenarios when someone passes away due to a illness they catch, non Covid? Or does only Covid matter?
