Covid19 How many in your state or country?

Recommended Posts

Holy crap - since Friday Pennsyltucky is up 1618 cases, my county is up 49 and the one where they have the Liberate PA! Rallies is up 59.  At least  think they're still having those redneck rallies, maybe they ran out of beer and finally went home.

Could be the 'redneck' county has 20% more people than your county.   Or maybe they're doing 20% more tests.  Or maybe they have a Walmart and a bar and your county doesn't.  Could be lots of other explanations other than the 'Liberate PA'  rallies.   Might even be they had one of those Wendy's Burning Protests.

We could use more bars but Wally World (the source of all things good) is only a short motorcycle ride away.

Good old  Dauphin County has jumped up to over 2045 cases (the idiots).  Here they are at play the day they had 400 cases not too long ago:

Those guys and the rioters, I don't know what their problem is.  I think they all forgot to focus on HEALTH CRISIS, do the right thing.  

The entire state jumped 618 cases since yesterday.  Just crazy.

I put it in Google Translate and it says "stupid is as stupid does".

I am really curious to see what will happen in the Southern Hemisphere.  The virus came to you in your summer.  As you go into the Flu season it's going to be very interesting.  It seems that there have been very few cases in Australia.  If not very many people have had it, then there will be no herd immunity and I would suspect that it should come back fairly significantly.  OTOH, if there have been a lot of asymptomatic or mild infections then maybe not.   For everyone's sake I hope that's the case.   We'll find out soon enough. 

 

We had 2 elderly people die in June (first month of winter) sadly. I think there were none in New Zealand  so well done to our mates over there. July and August may be worse, but I wouldn't say winter versus summer has been a big factor here so far.

Good old  Dauphin County

 

For what it's worth I understand the county has a death rate of 6.75 per confirmed case.  For the USA overall it's 4.77 per confirmed case.

Interesting, I just read from New York Times that hundreds of thousands of cases have been traced to clusters.

Funerals,  fast food restaurants,  Cruise Ships,  Navy vessels,  Mostly Nursing homes and other long term care facilities, Food processing plants,  Correctional facilities,  All places where people are packed in close without the 6 foot distancing rule.  And New York which has the most populated city in the US is in the lead with the most cases at, 398,770 and deaths at 31,791.

I believe French to be a hoax. It's one of my lesser-known conspiracy theories, but it's there. 

I base it on sound empirical studies (admittedly small sample group): literally NO ONE who took French in high school remembers any of it.

Media was spouting that the US would soon get to 100,000 infections per day.  It sure sounds like a lot, but if Black Dog is still hoping for herd immunity at say 80% of population the US would need to run at 100k per day, every day, for over 7 years by my maths. It's more about having the resources to deal with those numbers and keep vulnerable folks safe.

I took Spanish. Still can count to 20 and maybe 2 words. Yeah, I have never ever used it.  Pretty much a waste of time making everyone take those courses.

Most everything I was taught at school outside reading, writing and basic maths has been of little if any use to me in life. If you are not going to work in science then I'd reckon French, Italian or Spanish to be more use than physics or chemistry if you are into travelling.

ps Joel it translates (roughly) "we made the world thus"

Yep. I never took physics or chemistry and even got out of Phys. Ed my last 3 years.  I got a scholarship in Art when I graduated though. Besides, painting, drawing and pottery you had to know History in art as well as math.  Let's see,  2x2 is 16 right?  Lol.    Just joking,  Actually there's lots of measurements in getting the picture centered just right and so. Even the framing. If I could post photos, I would post some of my paintings here. I've been in art since the 2nd grade.

My test came back negative - YAY!

It must have been my wife's cooking that was doing me in.

I read that NYC health officials have ordered "Contact Tracers" to NOT ask if the people testing positive were at any of the 'peaceful protests'.  Sort of amazing.

I don't know if that's credible about don't try and track protesters.  It seems a lost cause no matter what.

I'm easy to track: bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, garage, reptile building, motorcycle ride around the countryside, repeat.  I come in contact with my wife (hubba hubba) but she runs around a fair amount so  she'd be harder to track.

Under normal circumstances, I'd come in contact with so many people it would be a nightmare.  Home, gas station, state capital, building full of 1700 people, walk around state capital, sneeze and loudly break wind while walking past news crew in the middle of a live feed, you get the idea.  Figure 400 people a day.  You'd need an army to track where those 400 people go.

As for yesterday, this state had 88,741 cases, Dauphin County is up to 2161 and my little spot of heaven is up to 1577.

I rode past a diner yesterday morning and the parking lot was packed, the wife says it was a madhouse with people lined up to buy fireworks all over the place.

Everyone is acting like it magically went away.  

Nope.
