Nine states report significant uptick in coronavirus hospitalizations after Memorial Day

Texas health officials say the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the state rose by nearly 2,000 Sunday and there were another 24 deaths tied to the disease caused by the new coronavirus.

Coronavirus-related hospitalizations in at least nine states have been on the rise since Memorial Day, when a spate of large, crowded gatherings and raucous pool parties provoked warnings from health officials.

Record numbers of patients requiring inpatient care have been reported in Arizona, where crowds packed tourist spots like Lake Havasu over the long weekend, and Texas, which was one of the first states to ease stay-at-home orders.

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development issued a report in which it said, “The global economy is now experiencing the deepest recession since the Great Depression in the 1930s.”

The U.N. body projected the economy is on track to shrink by at least 6 percent by the end of 2020.

Seeking a city willing to allow a large-scale event amid the pandemic, Republicans have tentatively settled on Jacksonville, Fla., as the new destination for the premier festivities of the Republican National Convention in August, according to three Republican officials briefed on the plans.

Its understandable that governors want to "open" their states early-- but this is what happens when they push to do it to early :-(

Now the question is-- will the Floridians be stupid enough to allow such a large gathering...especially in an enclosed space?

Even worse is:

Trump is reportedly insisting the Republican National Convention be held without face masks or social distancing measures

It seems to be conservatives who push this notion that the precautions are overkill.   Where do you think this comes from?   Seems like reckless wishful thinking to me.

Yes I do think protests without precautions is reckless.   But I was speaking of the arguments made.   Basically, the argument that essentially claims that the government is exploiting the pandemic to impose its will on the people.   In a word: overkill.

Given the context of your comment ....

Do you hold that an individual must either be wholly conservative or wholly liberal?   That is, if someone takes a position that ideologically differs from yours, are they automatically a liberal in your eyes?

My comment was that it seems that those pushing the idea that precautions against COVID-19 is overkill by authorities are on 'the right'.  

And in answering your question, I opined that protests without precautions is reckless.

And another way of saying that is that those favoring extreme measures to absolutely shut down the economy for as long as possible are on the left.

Now I'm making a comment and it can be viewed as equally valid. So there is no need to post any more quotes.


And in answering your question, I opined that protests without precautions is reckless.

Thank you again. The fact that the same media which only a few weeks ago condemned people for going to beaches, but is now silent & openly giddy about mass demonstrations is another aspect of it. However, I'm not asking for your opinion of that.

Have a nice day.

I am sure there are some on the left who are willing to compromise the economy as a wedge to defeat Trump.   I condemn such a practice as irresponsible.

There is a difference though.   The argument to impose precautions such as stay-at-home (which is now relaxing), social distancing, masks, cleaning, etc. is based on our modern understanding of viruses, coronavirus in particular, and pandemics in general.   So when someone, such as myself, argues that it makes sense to engage in precautions until we have stabilized the infections and to continue with select precautions until we have a vaccine and/or cure, then that argument is based on facts and reason.   It is an argument that has nothing whatsoever to do with partisan politics.

The fact that the same media which only a few weeks ago condemned people for going to beaches, but is now silent & openly giddy about mass demonstrations is another aspect of it. However, I'm not asking for your opinion of that.

I have no interest trying to explain the media.   I will note, however, that taking precautions today and ongoing is the responsible way to operate.   It is far better to suck it up now to prevent this pandemic from growing worse.   It is difficult but things would be substantially more difficult if we threw caution to the wind.   As it stands right now, our economy will recover.   We will get back to a new normal.   There is good reason to be optimistic that we will get past this (with scars).   But one should be able to recognize that this pandemic could have been devastating (well beyond what we experienced) if we had a worldwide view that the precautions are simply an exploitation of a situation to impose more authoritarian rule and thus were ignored.  And, importantly, we could easily spike right back to a worldwide pandemic if we drop our guards.

Yes it's reckless.  You could only imagine how many would show up were it not for coronovirus. Many people stayed away because of it.  I went down there for a few hours one day and kept my distance, wore an n95 mask, and registered 21 voters.

What did you think of the WHO reporting that Coronavirus patients without symptoms aren’t driving the spread of the virus. They said that Monday.

Walked it back since.  https://www.cnbc.com/2020/06/08/asymptomatic-coronavirus-patients-arent-spreading-new-infections-who-says.html

Thoughts?

3.1.13  TᵢG  replied to  Vic Eldred @3.1.12    one month ago

The explanation is that results from admittedly statistically weak data suggest the spread by asymptomatic individuals was rare.   But we also know that asymptomatic individuals can indeed spread the virus.

My take is that science continues to report based on what is has discovered and will revise prior recommendations as needed.  Nothing surprising here to me.   As far as I am concerned, given we (collectively) do not understand asymptomatic spread we should err on the side of caution and assume that anyone could be infectious.

No, but those who self identify as liberals or progressives or always post liberal talking points tend to behave very predictably.  And they will ignore the protests altogether when talking about any spike in corona-virus cases. It's right here on this post for all to see. 

 That is, if someone takes a position that ideologically differs from yours, are they automatically a liberal in your eyes?

Not at all. My ideology isn't even that right wing, so many who disagree with me are more "conservative" then I am.

I agree, partisans and ideologues behave in very predictable manners.   This is not limited to a particular ideology or a particular party.

Not at all.

Then you were not, in spite of the very obvious context, including me as a 'liberal'?

When I saw a news clip showing a man in California being detained by police because he flouted the guidelines, shouting:  "I woke up this morning a free man...."  I could see where this was going.  The cultural difference between those to whom the good, the safety and happiness of the collective, or caring for others more than oneself, is commonplace differs so vastly from those who demand their personal freedom and rights and fuck everyone else does make it clear where the numbers were going to skyrocket.  In my opinion, you ain't seen nothin' yet.

I totally agree. 

In the initial outbreaks, our government began its Socialist policy of bailing out failing companies. And actually giving out checks to many people and companies (Ironic because on Fox news they are constantly obsessing about the dangers of "Socialism"....but of course its OK with them when Trump does it!

But with a second out, eventually the government will have to stop doing that.

And while shutting down parts of the economy worked in states who did it during the initial outbreak-- when the second outbreak strikes most of the population will be more reluctsnt to stay home again...

In addition, many believe the first outbreak was temporary-- eventually "we'd get though this". (People who lost their jobs were saying "We're temporarily unemployed" but after a second outbreak, many of those companies may not to re-open-- and have to go out of business! :-(

From Trump-- and his spineless sycophants.

From the beginning he denied that it was serious. And Fox news and his other flunkies parroted his every word.

Here's an excellent video that show exactly what they said and how they downplayed the seriousness of the Corona-virus. Amazingly stupid comments in retrospect! Note how early on they were in total denial.

(In the video the dates they made each statement are written on the bottom of the screen):

Condolences on your loss Kathleen.

As to the funeral situation, you need to remember that you're a member of a simple family only wanting to pay respects to other family members and your last respects to the dead.  You're not affiliated with the latest cause that others can exploit.

Nope.   The rules are fungible only predicated on how useful the narrative is to others.  Hell, the dead don't even know when they're being used AGAIN.

You really have to ponder that "again".   Agitators and instigators, like Sharpton, Crump, Jackson, et al, rail against whites and other perceived aggressors when they think they're being used, and then when something like the murder of Floyd happens, they rush in and use the victim for their own purposes.
