My friend's teenaged daughter officially has the rona. She went through treatment for leukemia a few years ago and her immune system hasn't been the same since. Mom just completed treatment for cervical cancer.

They live in a rural area where people are idiotic anti-mask jerks. I am so stick fiddling angry right now.

Sorry to hear about your friend, Malkin. Hopefully they will be alright. :worriedfrown:

I have a coworker who is terrified of our office right now because of the anti-mask BS - as well as the fact that we are now on our second outbreak.

When considering what Halloween costume to wear while giving an update on COVID-19 cases and deaths, the negative reaction to one video suggests the best option is perhaps none at all.

Public health officials in Oregon were swiftly panned online this week after wearing clown makeup and an animal onesie in a video about celebrating Halloween safely.

NC Gov Cooper went to Phase 3 opening a couple weeks ago. (I think bars and other not-so-large venues. With the usual distancing etc)

Of course NC joins the rest of the nation in record new cases the past few days.

But today I am seeing a road-race being held. Joggers running by and streets with traffic cones marking lanes for safe running. This is the first time I’m seeing that since March or before(?). There’s been none and usually there’d be one every couple weeks or so thru the summer. With a swim/bike/run triathlon Iron-Man that didn’t run this year.

Just dropping in with a ‘news’ tidbit.

Meanwhile I’m not certain about 2021 Boston Marathon.

Or...

Hear me out on this...

Maybe people with mental illness are more likely to get COVID-19?

Oh, I know, that would make too much sense. So let's just flip around something that sounds obvious, because it sounds surprising.

Or, more likely, people with a predisposition for those conditions are having them triggered by COVID 19. Sort of like setting a lot of glassware at the very edge of a shelf - which is fine until you introduce the cat.

It makes much more sense to reason that these people already had mental illnesses and went out and did things that led to them catching COVID-19, likely leading to increased contact with medical professionals, likely increasing chance of diagnoses.

We don't know that COVID-19 causes mental illnesses.

While China certainly did a better job controlling the pandemic than the US, let's not act as through you can trust the numbers China publishes.

Hey, there is a silver lining here. The US might actually be on track to get that herd immunity when the entire population has been exposed! :up:

The first cruise ship to set sail in the Caribbean since the coronavirus pandemic began is now quarantining off the coast of Barbados after at least five passengers have tested positive for COVID-19.

All 53 passengers and 66 crew aboard the small vessel, SeaDream I, were being tested today to determine if there are any other cases on board. The ship's captain announced midday Wednesday that one person had tested positive, sending the boat into quarantine. Further testing reported Thursday identified four other cases, all close contacts of the first case.

The ship's owner, SeaDream Yacht Club, reported that its medical team had finished retesting all crew and all were negative. SeaDream said it was still working through all 53 passengers, 37 of whom are American.

I heard a cruise line was going to ask for guinea pigs, er volunteers, to go on a cruse free of charge. I guess to see what happens.

Microsoft says hackers from Russia and North Korea attacked COVID-19 vaccine makers

Quote:
Cyberattacks that originated in North Korea and Russia have been targeting companies conducting research for COVID-19 vaccines and treatments, Microsoft said in a new blog post. The company says the attacks were aimed at seven leading pharmaceutical companies and researchers in the US, Canada, France, India, and South Korea.

“Among the targets, the majority are vaccine makers that have COVID-19 vaccines in various stages of clinical trials,” according to the blog post by Tom Burt, Microsoft corporate vice president of customer security and trust. Microsoft didn’t name the companies, or provide details about what information may have been stolen or compromised, but said it had notified the organizations and offered help where the attacks were successful.

That would be true for most companies - it's about reassuring their customers that everything is fine.

I bet in his bible, Jesus jumped for Satan, confident his god would catch him.
Does that "God hates fags" church that demonstrated at funerals have a position on COVID?
I'm afraid to look.

CDC says people should not travel for Thanksgiving due to COVID-19 surges

Quote:
Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that people should not travel for Thanksgiving, citing the rapid increases in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations around the country. “It’s a strong recommendation,” said Henry Walke, COVID-19 incident manager at the CDC, during a press briefing.

Quote:
The process of getting from one place to another also concerns the CDC. “What we’re concerned about is not only the actual code of travel — whether it’s an airplane, or a bus, or a car, or an RV, for example — but also the transportation hubs,” Walke says. “When people are in lines and waiting to get on the bus or get on a plane, people tend to crowd together.”

I went out grocery shopping yesterday and did not see anyone not wearing a mask. The county I live in is doing fairly well keeping the infection rate down. Up North in the DC metro is where things are really spiking.

I like Christmas well enough, but I don't need six or seven weeks of it.

I don't know why it has to be front-loaded so much. Now it basically ends on the 25th of december where once upon a time it started on the eve of the 25th.
