    I looked and most that I saw was that there is no real way to gauge any difference in numbers, or that trying to figure it out was confusing. Screenshot_20200525-144824_Google.jpg

    It's definitely the disease itself to blame.
    Couldn't possibly be the fact that our way of life is built on a house of cards, to put it mildly.

    “open up the country because of suicides” people are the same ones who are only concerned about mental health when there’s been a mass shooting and they’re afraid something might happen to their toys (lol)

    the "searching for evidence to blame the left for everything" pushes me towards the idea that you teach everyone research methodology and philosophy 101 in HS and the confirmation bias crusaders like that would at least have the mental framework to maybe at some level realize what they're doing

    you won't fix the reflex contrarian guys who no matter what level of education have that narcissistic conspiracy streak, but normal folks would benefit in a sizable way from being able to read a research study and audit their own thoughts and arguments at a decent level

    So 80% of conservatives? Can we stipulate to 80% of conservatives? I know you/they don't think that's the way you/they are... but stereotypes exist for a reason.

    You work in a hospital and are getting your hair cut? Your parents can't visit you and you're out getting a trim?

    For contrast, the CDC has US reported for 13,627,000 tests total.

    Guess that The difference between a proactive and reactive (or in our case non existent) governemntal response.

    Can you imagine the response if a Democratic POTUS treated the right to bear arms the way this Republican POTUS treats the right to vote?

    The World Health Organization says it is temporarily halting its clinical trials that use hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 patients over published concerns that the drug may do more harm than good.

    The move comes after the medical journal The Lancet reported on Friday that patients getting hydroxychloroquine were dying at higher rates than other coronavirus patients.

    The WHO has 3,500 patients from 17 countries enrolled in what it calls the Solidarity Trial. This is an effort overseen by the WHO to find new treatments for COVID-19. The patients in the trial have been randomly assigned to be treated with hydroxychloroquine which is a common malaria drug, or 3 other experimental drugs for treating COVID-19 in various combinations. Only the hydroxychloroquine part of the trial is being put on hold.

    Perhaps. As well as other additional measures. And any action taken to counteract the spread of the virus should take into account these additional lives that will be lost. If we really care about people dying and all.

    Unemployment is a well-established risk factor for suicide. In fact, 1 in 3 people who die by suicide are unemployed at the time of their deaths. For every one-point increase in the unemployment rate, the suicide rate tends to increase .78 points. One of the silent drivers of our current suicide crisis is the high percentage of working-age men not participating in the labor force.
