    It’s a shitshow in Europe. France with 52k cases today, 17% positivity rate (US equivalent would be 260k), Belgium with a staggering 17k cases, 19% positivity rate (US equivalent of 480k).

    Things seem bad now, but those numbers are only going to become hospitalizations in what, 2-3 weeks? That’s gonna mean a lot of deaths...:feelsbadman:

    My parents are moving and I was helping them on Friday while the house was being painted.

    I saw throat lozenges on the counter and none of the painters wearing masks but I fucked up and didn’t say anything.

    Now one of the painters tested positive so we all have to go get tested. Fucking livid right now.

    Alaskas all time high for new cases in a day as of two and a half days ago was 255. Then we hit 371 yesterday and then today, a Sunday, was 523. That folks is what we call an outbreak.

    We had 800 cases today with 12x the population and pretty much the whole province is on lockdown. Fucking sucks. I get it, but it sucks.

    Central Florida? I went to target today and everyone had a mask. Everywhere I’ve been you’re shamed if you aren’t wearing mask correctly, let alone none at all.

    On the corner of the street Target is on there were 30-40 people with trump signs. Only 1 had a mask. They probably shop at Walmart though.

    Yeah, we are going into a "shutdown". Curfew from 10-5. My sister is a nurse at one of the main hospitals in central El Paso and has been stretched pretty thin. And that's before the last 2 weeks where we went from ~2500 active cases to ~11000 active cases

    northern weather bias. People who live in the north but also much of the mainstream media living in NY/DC skews things to their perception of summer and winter which is flipped in many parts of the south. I honestly think the explanation is as simple as that.

    Modeling isn’t perfect, but it’s not that dumb, either. COVID transmission accelerated in the winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and decelerated in the Northern Hemisphere everywhere except red states.

    Yeah I’ve been to Louisiana one time and it was August and felt like I was sweating by just leaving my hotel room so I totally understand the flip compared to us Northerners, and I just downplayed it mentally.

    So my sense of smell/taste has been funky since last night and I woke up this morning with a painfully swollen thumb, but the online questionnaire from my medical provider says don't come in to get tested because I don't have respiratory symptoms

    Probably just a staph infection anyway, no worries RIP

    Democrats are as big on that boostraps bullshit as the Republicans are. That's why if they get Trump out people like Chuck and Nancy to be next on the block. All these old democrats who haven't done shit for any of us need to go.

    I am shocked that when all of the people not taking this seriously get together it causes outbreaks.
