    In theory, I understand the appeal of this.

    In reality, I don’t see this working the way you’d expect. First, even with contact tracing, I think it would be nearly impossible to prove by the standards required in a court of law that a person contracted Covid from a specific sources. So that would be issue one (although mass infect events might be easier to prove). Second, most companies/small businesses and almost all individuals would never have the recoverable assets to go after to satisfy a possible judgment (which ignores completely the task of assigning a dollar amount to the damages for this sort of conduct). Finally, I would not expect most standard insurance policies would be read to cover a “covid negligence” claim; in fact I assume many would specifically exclude it (in the same way many small business owners a learned their business insurance policies would not cover loss of earnings/profits due to a standard pandemic exclusion). So I just don’t see many of these claims having legs outside of some medical malpractice or nursing home context.

    Even if everything I just wrote is wrong and there was value, as a lawyer, I would be disappointed if this just became another boondoggle to make a bunch of lawyers an obscene amount of money.

    Perhaps no less fraught, but I’d rather see criminal penalties (never going to happen, but a girl can dream).

    Apparently the OH count doesn't include 12,000 antigen tests from earlier in the week. They are "double checking" them to make sure they are confirmed.

    Plus, I wonder about the information the gyms have and reported. For example, one of my wife’s co-workers tested positive recently. She said,”I don’t know where I could have been exposed. I’m soooo careful. The only place I go is to the gym.” Without a good contact tracing program, there’s little chance the gyms have their thumbs on Covid-19 cases related to their facilities.

    If you do the 21 day back count our ~1900 deaths yesterday would correlate to cases on October 28. The 7 day doing rolling avg then was ~75,000 cases. 7 day rolling avg in cases now is ~160,000.

    The problem to me, if I understand correctly, is that 1.5-2.0% CFR is based on current care standards. As Covid hospitalizations continue to rise and then you toss on the rise of the seasonal flu, care standards will drop as hospitals go overcapacity, meaning the death rate spikes. Does this pass medical/statistical muster?

    I would think so, but it depends where that breaking point is for hospitals. Like smaller rural hospitals could see a spike sooner, etc.

    Mixed feelings about federal resources and tax dollars being used to help these people that likely are largely covid deniers and acted irresponsibly. They need to find a way to pull themselves up and brush it off.

    Of course there could be innocents and vulnerable folks among those in need, so IDK.

    Ohio Governor Mike DeWine (R) instituted a state wide curfew this week, continues to have bars closed at 10:00, and now has the Bureau of Workers Comp investigating and citing businesses who do not enforce the mask mandate.

    Trump’s response is to encourage a Republican to challenge DeWine in the 2022 primary.
