What does the fact that you don’t know any of the 200,000+ people in the USA or the million plus people world wide who have died because of it prove?I personally know 32 people who have had it. Zero deaths. That includes fat people, old people (90 year old father), young people, people with cancer, people with heart conditions, people with diabetes...
7.8 billion worldwide. 330,000 million just in the USA.How many people are on earth?
I think his point is that when people do die it is often falsely attributed to Covid. In part because of the ridiculous amount of positive test results and the willingness of our Healthcare professionals to attribute Covid like symptoms to covid at time of death.
The state of Kansas was on a mask order until Oct. 15th, and people here are still acting like it is in effect.Per their health department, 75 cases and 7 deaths.
So why is this hair-on-fire newsworthy on Yahoo?
Quoting the article: "More than two-thirds of Gove County’s voters are registered Republicans, and Trump carried the county with nearly 85% of the vote in 2016."
And: "Superintendent Kurt Brown is careful to avoid the political debate about masks or to comment on rules elsewhere in the state."
The focus should be on the scientific evidence, or lack thereof, re masks not the politics.
Like everywhere else, this community should focus on protecting the vulnerable from ChinaVirus and protecting the non-vulnerable from the far more damaging (per WHO) consequences of lockdowns. Since the article states that "most" of the 30 nursing home residents have ChinaVirus (with 6 deaths, accounting for almost all of the 7 total), sounds like they have not done a bang up job. But it's Trump's fault.
You are being forced to wear a mask and just don't realize it.Forced? I am not forced to do ANYTHING.
I am required to wear a N95 mask at work because I am a healthcare provider, and
we want to offer the best protection for our clients and because I work with covid clients. I also have the right to refuse to wear a N95 mask, and my employer has the right to terminate me.
I choose to wear a N95 mask in public because many people (like you?) are refusing to wear a mask or do not believe they are helpful.
In 5 years, if there is not a covid vaccine, I will likely continue with my routine. Plus, I have seniors living in my home, and I value their health and will not risk getting them infected.
So far the best info we have comes from the cruise ship that was quarantined. Fatality rate was under 1%. Forfet the exact number but .5 -.7% or so when adjusted for age. This also doesn't take into account the excess stress and variables of being on a quarantined ship.
You quoted Diamond's reply, how was what he said political? People testing + is NOT the problem. People dying is the problem and I sure don't remember any of that in the "WH outbreak" I think you made it political.Playing politics or ignoring the science will not reduce the spreading of this virus; but wearing a mask, washing your grubby hands, and social distancing will. The recent covid outbreak at the WH and college campuses are examples of what happens if you do the opposite.
Yep, notice the media downplayed that but nooos, no politics involved in any of this. All the reporting is done for our safety......2 weeks out from the election.Breaking News: Key members of Harris' travel team are infected with Chinavirus, causing cancellation of multiple campaign stops.
They HAD to be religiously wearing masks -- after all, they are The Left and they know that mask wearing keeps us safe
They HAD to be social distancing -- after all, they are The Left
They HAD to be scrupulously washing their hands -- after all, they are The Left
So they did all the right things, yet they still caught the ChinaVirus. Shazaam!

Context is very important because you focused on two words in that reply. My focus in this thread is reducing the spread of covid.Playing politics or ignoring the science will not reduce the spreading of this virus; but wearing a mask, washing your grubby hands, and social distancing will.

We all respond with our biases. From past posts, it is clear where you stand about Trump. Diamonds specific reply that you quoted had nothing to do with politics. Your reply was a deflection to his post.Context is very important because you focused on two words in that reply. My focus in thread is about reducing the spread of covid.
No, I did not make the covid outbreak about politics. Our President did this because he knew this was a future problem in Jan/Feb.
Trump has downplayed it and has made bogus claims about covid. Unfortunately, some believed President Trump vs the science.
