Covid is a lie cooked up by Bill Gates and Barrack HUSSEIN Obama. There are no covid deaths. I know because facebook told me so.

I am officially a Covid doomer. I think it's never going away until offenders are killed by it. I don't think we'll have a vaccine for a while. My only hope is that people who are intelligent aren't harmed. I don't give a single shit about people who pretend it's a hoax.

These vaccines that pop up every couple of months turn out to be cash grabs.

how many of the cases are just recounts from retests?

how many of the deaths are from people who died from something unrelated?

how many hospitalizations are from people going for something else, and already have the wuhan virus, but they were already discharged for that?

You know, now that you said it first I have to agree. Let it run its course and clear out all the people who choose to be annoying. All SJW's, anyone willing to fight over masks, the political trolls from the last few years. Society needs a rinse and refill. So many posters above can't admit when they're wrong, there's no getting through to them. Guess that's not their fault either?

I hope after this they put a permanent 14-day quarantine in place for anyone coming from Mainland China. This is getting old and this isn't gonna end, and we can't trust their government to be transparent and take pre-emptive measures when they do stuff like arrest doctors for warning people then let it spill over the planet.

No it doesn't. And those that do wear one need to stop trolling those who don't because they'll just do it for spite. That's why fights break out. Mind your business and let things be.

Oh man imagine how dumb and immature you need to be to intentionally not wear ppe out of spite and to think that it's ok to do so and it's actually other people's fault that you behave like a child in response to criticism. You're either super trolling or the worst type of human possible.

Here's the thing though - there are people like that. Masks are ONLY useful if you're in close proximity and sick. Otherwise just a fashion statement. So if someone is purposefully going out to antagonize those without a mask then why should anyone be surprised if they get clunked? Plus if they're as paranoid as they sound why are they going near this person to begin with? There's no logic from them as we see here.

You're defending people who knowingly ignore rules then resort to violence if they're confronted. 100% indefensible and incredibly immature to think it's fine and deserved. And you clearly don't understand at all how masks or infectious diseases work if you're saying it's just personal choice and people should mind their own business.

America has been doing the way you're suggesting and it's a complete clusterfuck so maybe shut up and listen to the people who study infectious diseases for a living.

You're defending trolls. If some wacko got in your face I don't think you'd enjoy it. Maybe it's not about masks, karens count too. In those terms yes I say they deserve it.

People should absolutely mind their own business. You're neither a scientist or police. They're trained. You want attention. (Not 'you' specifically.)

Few, if any. Cases are tracked on a per-person basis, not a per-test basis, presuming a remotely competent public health infrastructure.

Krazy_Kirby posted...
how many of the deaths are from people who died from something unrelated?

In the sense of "they died in a car crash but then we tested them for covid and they were positive so now they're a covid death"? Virtually none. As much as paranoid anti-maskers would love to believe that every ambulance has some guy waiting with a Covid swab to test every dead person they find, postmortem testing isn't really a thing unless there's reason to suspect Covid was involved. In the sense of "They were covid positive and then they died of bacterial pneumonia"? Probably a non-trivial number, but it's extremely difficult to conclusively say that there was no relation between death of pneumonia and any respiratory comorbidities a person may have, such that counting those deaths as Covid-related is the only sensible way to document them.

Krazy_Kirby posted...
how many hospitalizations are from people going for something else, and already have the virus, but they were already discharged for that?

Virtually none. When people are hospitalized, the reason for their hospitalization is well documented, and again, a remotely competent public health agency will not cite anything other than that as their reason for being hospitalized. This is, again, presuming that their Covid infection doesn't complicate the primary reason for their hospitalization, since if it does, that absolutely should count as a Covid hospitalization.

I'm not sure why you're so desperate to insist that the statistics are being artificially inflated like this, especially when there's so much reason to believe that the complete opposite is true (I'm sure it's merely a coincidence that case numbers dropped precipitously the day after Trump decided that the CDC was no longer allowed to report them independently).

few weeks back there was a news story about a hospital (I think in Scotland) that had to audit their records. they found they had been recounting people who came back to the hospital.

in the first couple months the news repeatedly said that people who died and had it, were counted as virus c.o.d.

you assume our health system is competent enough to not recount people?

Mistakes happen, yes. Do you have a reason to generalize that one hospital's errors to more institutions?

Krazy_Kirby posted...

Because if there's one thing this pandemic has taught us, it's that every news outlet is a trustworthy source for public health information.

Krazy_Kirby posted...

That's really not a particularly high standard of competence. Every test result is personally identifiable (it has to be in order to communicate results), plus already-positive people that are getting retested will have that identified as their reason for being tested.

Furthermore, even if we assume that all numbers are being grossly inflated by clerical errors and the real numbers are, say, a quarter of that (bearing in mind that an assumption of that magnitude is completely baseless and utterly absurd), is that not still a concerning number of infections and deaths? That would still be ~300,000 cases and 65,000 deaths in 8 months, with no sign of slowing down. That's still an enormous number for an infectious disease and absolutely warrants a public response (and, again, there's absolutely no reason to believe the numbers are anywhere close to that low).

It's embarrassing how many people straight up refuse to take even the slightest precautions.

As selfish as it sounds, I'm trying to come up with a way to establish documented proof that I wasn't an anti masker or a COVID denier during all this. The shame of being an ignorant, stupid coward during a major historic global pandemic will hang over the heads of anti maskers and COVID deniers for decades.

We're being asked to reduce the number of public engagements we attend, wash our hands, and wear a face mask in public. This isn't fucking hard. Yet anti maskers call these basic hygienic tasks oppressive, because they don't know what oppression means.

Meanwhile in CT, one of the states taking this shit super seriously, the fucking governor just went into quarantine because his staff members kept testing positive for it.

I don't really see this stopping until we start developing heard immunity, even complete lock downs like in Italy just pushed it off into the future

Pretty much. Unless you're able to lock down the whole planet, it's not going anywhere. And unless we take proactive measures when it comes to stopping things like wet markets, we're just going to get hit by something else before long.
