The focus on deaths is because it's the smallest number and the one used to justify not giving a $hit about other people.

What's the over/under on dead people in the streets?

I think most here would agree, the virus in a one in one battle is not scary. It’s not Ebola.

It is prolific.

If it is allowed to spread up contained the death toll will be multiples of the treatable death toll. If one person is sick, they get quality care and the likely outcome is ~99% survivable. If 10,000 get sick, a lot of people that would not die do. And of course there is collateral damage.

I have to say this here because I encountered a person face to face of the opinion “people die” and it’s not that bad. I’ve been around long enough to know I cannot discuss the more refined elements with certain people. Congrats, you guys get my rant.

I had an epiphany on how we can help the healthcare system. What we need is a stamp of some kind. Everytime we see a Covidiot, we should put a stamp on their head. Every person in the bars, stamp them. The anti maskers, stamp them. The college kids still throwing huge ass house parties. Yep, stamp them. Then, they are not allowed to tie up a healthcare bed later on. We can just tell them it's a hoax, it'll be fine! Go home. Oh you can't breathe? "Oh people die" You made your bed, go lay in it.

I suggested something along these lines -- a license to not lock down or wear masks that people could apply for, but it would require a tattoo identifying them, and ban them from hospitals. I'd want the ban extended to necessary locations, like grocery stores and government offices, so their foolishness doesn't harm others. But after that, yeah, party on, have your concerts, fill your bars.

This alert arrived on my phone this morning. First time getting something like this since it all started.

“This region is at severe risk from deadly COVID. Use caution,”

If, at this time a year ago, someone predicted a headline like "National Guard called out to assist with morgue crisis", I would have imagined a nuclear explosion or asteroid or something, and not just a stupidity epidemic.

Maybe some here can be helped by this pretty succinct article. A COVID test is ONLY a snapshot in time. Some good info for the holidays.
