For a while it looked like India was a few of weeks away from moving ahead of the United States. They are still getting more per day, but now it will likely take a lot longer.

My problem with lockdowns is that they don't have a endgame
I mean yeah we already had the first lockdown, saw great results, but then now the "second wave" is even worse and we are having another lockdown
Then what? in 2 months from now we will have a third lockdown? to what end? until we have a vaccine?
I have been hearing "the vaccine is close to being ready" for months now

This is exactly it, couldn't agree more.

Also, here in the UK, Leicester hasn't even left lockdown, ever. When the restrictions were lifted nationally on July and pubs reopened, Leicester was placed under local lockdown. Now Leicester remains on lockdown and more cities keep being added, Londong among them, at the request of our joke of mayor.

Yeah, it's weird because now that USA has basically run the gamut already all these other countries will catch back up likely with cases and we will likely all end up around the same spot give or take some. Or the other countries will continue locking down repeatedly. Maybe both.

that's what i'm expecting as well. due to how stupidly contagious this thing is i'd expect all the "good" countries to have a major issue now because there's an honest limit to what you can do. it's just a matter of time until most people get it in some way or another, ideally it's just a small enough load that it doesn't get you sick and hospitals aren't overloaded.

ugh, my sister invited the family to the baby baptism/dedication at their church up in Green Bay in a couple weeks. Problem is, the church doesnt practice any COVID restrictions. No one wears masks and there's no seating separation, etc. Kind of an awkward situation to be put in, especially my mom who's older and has health conditions. I guess we'll just go and cross our fingers. Maybe we'll wear masks to try and set a new trend.

This is with cases in the Green Bay area rising exponentially since Packer season started.

My sister seemed apologetic about it. I think she kind of knows it's not an ideal situation but it's her home church and they've supported her family a lot throughout the years. I mean, I've been to that church in the past. It's on the smaller side and full of really good people. I'm still very surprised that they have chosen to respond to COVID in this way. I was not expecting that of them.

I'll probably talk with my parents some more about it.

My cousin is having a wedding in a week and I never RSVPd or tried to get the day off. It's mostly from forgetting but I just don't feel comfortable going to an enclosed event like that with potentially hundreds of people all crammed together. And I know my grandpa is a hard core Trumper and thinks the whole thing is a hoax so he won't have a mask and he'll probably try to convince everyone else not to wear one. Ugh.

I have been to 3 weddings since this started. None of them had masks at all, despite any recommendations, posted rules, or state guidelines/regulations. I doubt that one will either.

My cousin had a baby shower about a month ago, and they didnt want to upset anybody so she said she wasnt requiring masks even though it was indoors. My wife and my mom didnt go because of it, and people were pissed at them until those that went started testing positive. There were 11 last I heard. What a shocker.

It sounds like your sister at least understands that it could be an issue, and wont be a problem.

Its extremely frustrating that people arent wearing masks and are still doing these large events, and in particular are doing maskless large events. If people followed the damn rules cases wouldnt be going up.

I thanked one of them one time wearing a mask and told them about how many I see without and they kinda flipped out and told me that was a HUGE no-no and that they could get in a ton of trouble for not having a mask while in uniform.

I sell blood at CSL and they have canned loudspeakers that go on and on about how safe and careful they are and how all employees wear masks which is funny cause you can see that the employees all have their masks pulled down to their neck at all times.

https://www.sciencealert.com/study-gives-more-evidence-that-blood-type-may-change-covid-19-risk-and-severity

I have type B blood and I would not be surprised if it helped prevent infections outright. I know for a 100% fact Ive been around people with covid (contractors at work who tested positive, plus people who have family members with it), and I have yet to test positive. 3 tests per week. All negative for months.

Im seriously considering going to the doctor for a checkup and asking if a blood test or something exists to see if people can be immune.

So after 2 days where I thought I might get better...yeah, probably my worst night yet
Couldn't get a single minute of sleep, endlessly coughing and my heart started beating faster because I found it hard to breath

When does one know when it's time to panic and go to a hospital? I mean I can live...but how will I know when this is getting dangerous?
Going to call in sick again. It's fucking 6am and work start in 2 hours

Whenever you have difficulty breathing I would go imo.

I know a guy in my area was talking about how he had it and it was a minor setback but all is good and now I am hearing after declaring victory and offering information regarding it that he is in the hospital now. So it can change quickly.

And, you should have called off for 2 weeks if you have it. Not going day by day imo.

From what I've read you should contact a doctor if you have shortness of breath.

And yes you should absolutely not be going to work right now regardless; you're quite possibly still contagious.

Also, let me change that. You should absolutely be going to the hospital now (call first and confirm). You can't let it get too far and viral load could be an issue if you are in a house with a bunch of positives. You are already having the distress affect your heart rate and the lack of sleep and such will continue that.

breathing issue = hospital.
it could be your lungs having shit inside which potentially can lead to pneumonia, it could be your oxygen levels which can be fatal, or it could be some minor inflammation. but don't chance that one.

Anyway went to the family doctor today, she didn't find something critical but did suggest to go to a hospital for further testing

The decline in new cases is too sudden
Yes, we started a lockdown about 3 weeks ago - but that lockdown is a fake
Barely anyone cares about it - people are going around freely. Sure, workplaces that are must be shut down were shut down, but that wouldn't explain how from 7000 cases a day we got down to 1000
I feel like they are playing with the numbers for..reasons

You might have just had a quick surge or a backlog of cases created your surge. All the graphs agree with that drop.
