That is what will happen in the time from loosening the lock down until the virus is mastered completely (medication, vaccine or a lot of luck that it disappears). Moving back and forth.Even if they're not singing, it's still not safe
Places of worship in Germany opened their doors again at the start of May. But now a new COVID-19 cluster has been linked to one religious service.www.dw.com
That's 40 infections after one single church service in Germany, where the lock-down is still very much in force in other respects, and the authorities take the crisis seriously and are doing a far, far better job of protecting their citizens than is the US.
Yes, but I wanted to illustrate the effects of opening churches, even without singing -- one church in Germany, where they've been doing mass testing and contact tracing, leads to 40 cases, and one hospitalisation, and in Germany, they've got a competent and responsible federal government.That is what will happen in the time from loosening the lock down until the virus is mastered completely (medication, vaccine or a lot of luck that it disappears). Moving back and forth.
A complete lockdown until then is not realistic economically and socially.
I mean, it cost our government 55 billion euro in the last few weeks alone to try to avoid job losses and for the next two months there will be another 45 billion needed. And then there is the extra costs of healthcare etc.
We will need to try to go to a more normal life as much as possible. A total collapse of economy is no an desirable outcome.
And the statistics look good. ICU's are back to normal capacity numbers, general death rates are back to almost normal, the number of new hospitalizations with covid-19 are low.
But coming out of the lock down will most likely be two/three steps ahead, one/two back.
Most important will be that people stay focused on the symptoms, restrictions and safety precausions.
We don't have to think about it, because we know what happened in march to a chuch choir in Mount Vernon, Washington: https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/pdfs/mm6919e6-H.pdfI don't want to think about what's going to happen in the US.
Well, the gun-toting crazy in that last tweet is a real-estate agent. I’m glad I don’t live in her state or anywhere she might be, selling houses. Wondering if her potential clients might feel the same? Unless she gets all her business from fellow would -be shooters. Even more reason to be glad I don’t live there,She seems to think businesses will be threatened by maybe losing the business of one customer? They are all too aware how much business they will lose (and probably fined or even have their license pulled in some cities) if they do NOT require it.
- The researchers analyzed over 200 million tweets discussing COVID-19 and found that roughly half the accounts were likely bots.
- They identified the bots by looking for accounts that tweeted more frequently than humanly possible or whose location appeared to rapidly switch among different countries.
NL had its household in good shape before the crisis. We were one of the countries that could get loans (bonds) with negative interest. So the Dutch state was in fact payed to borrow money from the financial markets. That is one of the reasons that NL isn't too keen (so far) to take (shared) responsibility for the loans from countries who never bothered to much about their financial state.We can do that because we've never been part of the Euro, though -- how are you guys handling it? I've seen reports that there have been big fights over it, with The Netherlands taking a particularly firm line, and a major court case in Germany, but I've not been following it.
OMFG.Karen Video's x3.
My knee jerk reaction was a sarcastic "No Duh Cptn Obvious!" ... but upon further thought, I found myself surprised that it's -only- half.It's unclear who's behind the surge in bot activity or whether they're originating from the US or abroad.www.businessinsider.com
They're probably the same accounts that are swarming the tweets about this article:My knee jerk reaction was a sarcastic "No Duh Cptn Obvious!" ... but upon further thought, I found myself surprised that it's -only- half.
I was curious so I looked some things up. Then looked again at what the claims might be regarding flu deaths. Apparently the claim is that the CDC is misreporting flu deaths as covid-19 deaths to raise the number of covid-19 deaths. That does not appear to be the case.They're probably the same accounts that are swarming the tweets about this article:
with the same three "gotchas"
1) "Now do flu deaths"
2) "Cuomo and DeBlasio are responsible for half of those"
3) search for any little inaccuracy that resulted from the Times' obituary search and go "Aha!"
How many adults die from flu each year?
Flu deaths in adults are not nationally notifiable. In order to monitor influenza related deaths in all age groups, CDC tracks pneumonia and influenza (P&I)–attributed deaths through the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) Mortality Reporting System. This system tracks the proportion of death certificates processed that list pneumonia or influenza as the underlying or contributing cause of death. This system provides an overall indication of whether flu-associated deaths are elevated, but does not provide an exact number of how many people died from flu. As it does for the numbers of flu cases, doctor’s visits and hospitalizations, CDC also estimates deaths in the United States using mathematical modeling. CDC estimates that from 2010-2011 to 2017-2018, influenza-associated deaths in the United States ranged from a low of 12,000 (during 2011-2012) to a high of 79,000 (during 2017-2018). The model used to estimate flu-associated deaths uses a ratio of deaths-to-hospitalizations in order to estimate the total flu-related deaths during a season. For more information: How CDC Estimates Burden.
Well, they're saying that hospitals are claiming wildly unrelated things as COVID deaths. They've got some idea the burials get extra money that way.I was curious so I looked some things up. Then looked again at what the claims might be regarding flu deaths. Apparently the claim is that the CDC is misreporting flu deaths as covid-19 deaths to raise the number of covid-19 deaths. That does not appear to be the case.
CDC is still tracking the flu, and the numbers are typical flu season numbers.
A claim that the CDC has stopped tracking flu deaths because the number of deaths is so low is false.www.usatoday.com
2017-2018 flu deaths: 61,000
2018-2019 flu deaths: 34,200
2019-2020 flu deaths: 24,000 to 62,000 flu deaths estimated
Actually a big majority of Fox news viewers do believe that conspirary about Gates microchipping the people and over 40% of the people who call themself Republican and voted 2016 for Trump.The conflict theories are in high gear:
Contact tracing, trying to find out who might have been infected and possibly save their lives, is really post of the Sinister Plot.
These jokers really think Bill Gates is going to make a vaccine so that he can microchiip everyone. They think the "micro" in microchiip stands for microscopic, I guess.
Well, they can go last in the vaccine line.Actually a big majority of Fox news viewers do believe that conspirary about Gates microchipping the people and over 40% of the people who call themself Republican and voted 2016 for Trump.
The representative survey of 1,640 US adults by YouGov for Yahoo News found that half of respondent Americans who say Fox News is their primary television news source believe the conspiracy theory. It's the largest group responding this way, followed by self-described Republicans and "Voted for Donald Trump in 2016" -- 44% of both those groups said they believed the conspiracy theory was true. Twenty-six percent of respondent Republicans said it was false, and 31% said they weren't sure.
Representatives for Fox News, the Republican Party, the White House and the Trump 2020 campaign didn't immediately respond to requests for comment. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which the namesake founders use to fund medical research and vaccine programs around the world, also didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
A survey finds a false conspiracy theory about Gates using vaccines to implant people with tracking microchips is popular among Fox News viewers, Republicans and Trump voters.www.cnet.com
