He's literally asking for Obama lol


don't talk and wear a mask.  doesn't really seem that hard (but we're not going to try it).

Air conditioning and air filtration seems to be good at limiting spread right? That would give us an edge over the 1918 suckers.

ignoring phil's bugaboo, ordinary air conditioning has been proposed as a good way to promote, not limit, spread.  however, there have been suggestions that hepa filters will remove a lot of the airborne virus and people have proposed installing uv traps in systems to kill virus before recirculating, so if we wanted to make the effort, we could probably outfit at least larger buildings and probably public transit with systems that did limit spread.

I've read about how contagious you are peaking fairly early and fading out over time.

i'm not going to look for a link either, but have seen the same info.  most people are really only infectious (not infectious like if you're a nurse popping open someone's lung you can still get it from someone "non-infectious", but it's unlikely they'll infect someone by normal means) for 5-6 days or so.  the last 2-3 days of asymptomatic and the first 2-3 days with symptoms.  and even within that period, there's a much shorter peak of peak infectiousness.

this is a tough one, my guess is right around a border

no fence sitting in this poll.

The New Joe Montgomery Birther Pit / death poll 6.0

results will be from worldometers, midnight cst.

i'm mostly with the flu bros on the age thing.   the way the media focuses on younger deaths (and probably declines to emphasize age in cov2 discussion) gives an erroneous impression about the relative risks.  people persistently talk about obesity and asthma and heart disease and other comorbidities as if they were equivalent risk factors with age.  and they're just not even close.

the us went over 100k dead from covid 19 today, so this poll can now be called for the 100-200k group.  not great wisdom of the here, as most respondents chose 25-50 or 50-100k.  congratulations to the prescient eight.

Great article on contact tracing. The feds should be throwing so much money at this

propublica is doing good journalism.

i didn't say to wait two weeks when georgia opened.

It’ll be interesting. There’s been a lot of “look at these idiots” tweets, but most of the idiots shown have been outside (particularly the ozarks people). 

Should be putting the outside transmission effect to the test.

yeah.  i think it's evidence of increasing lackadaisicalness all around, but it's possible people have taken the outdoor/indoor risk differential to heart.

western coachwhip.  very southwesterny.

*back when I was a kid my grandpa smoked a pipe so we had empty Sir Walter Raleigh tobacco cans to put nuts and bolts in and pour out the oil sopping up stuff. seriously we had like a million of these cans and then my grandpa had heart surgery when he was like 75 or 80 and just quit cold turkey and now he's kickin' in his 90's

my grandfather had at least nine million of them and it's (the innards) the best smell in the world.  if i knew where to buy these things, i'd buy a few cans to set around the house like potpourri.

anecdotally, i'm seeing a noticeable increase in traffic around town and on the freeways and there's more "look at these idiots" tweets showing up than a few weeks back.  my guess is we've got another 10 days or so of falling deaths before they start to tick back up.

might make a poll on it, but i'll wait until the current poll is resolved.

My point is sick people shouldn't go into work when there is a global pandemic and blaming opening of economies isn't the problem.

she should have been exposed to relentless advertising letting her know that she should go get tested as soon as she felt ill and where to go and then she should have been paid $100/day or so to stay in a hotel when she tested positive and the 56 clients exposed to her should have been tested before this article was published and they should be in hotels now getting paid $100/day and waiting for their 2nd test to see if they can go home or if they need to wait 14 days like their stylist.

even when we get the testing and tracing right, we're rough ridin' up because we don't have a plan that's designed to actually stop the spread of the virus, it's just going through the motions.

there's no argument for combining them.

i'm still unsure that positive antibody tests are counted as a new cases (because they shouldn't be, because they aren't new cases).  i think the best that can be done for now in terms of data interpretation is to just ignore the issue and hope/assume the numbers of antibody tests are small.

hopefully the issue is resolved soon.

Analog contact tracing breaks down when infection numbers are high

I've seen this repeated in a few articles and I don't understand it. It seems like you just wouldn't be able to keep numbers down entirely but contact tracing seems like it would still help a lot.

it's just another way for the united states to give up without trying because trying seems hard.

pics of cows, please.

good thread.



goddamn, that's a hot piece of ass report.  and congratulations to kansas for being the greenest piece of ass in the midwest.



sorry, three weeks old, so not that egregious.
