Has the Corona Virus infected anyone you know?

Recommended Posts

I typically view things in a historical sense.  I've always been sort of detached in that way.

I can almost guarantee that the person who did it is in favor of taking down statues, changing team mascots, etc because they don’t want people to feel bad.

Quite a rush to judgement. I tended to guess it was someone that doubts covid is serious at all, maybe just a bad cold that leads to re-categorized deaths and sees no problem with racist statues. 

I mean, for sure every one of my posts has a handful of eye rolls. I've never threatened anyone over it though. That's personal liberty snowflake irony!

But for sure, best wishes on the family covid. I hope the symptoms are minor, even for the feeble ladies. Though statistically speaking, it hits men harder. But best wishes to them all.i know us liberals take covid with utmost seriousness. 

My nanny's daughter just got a positive result. Let the eye rolls begin.

As I have said/asked before - would be nice if the board let you see the names for the different "votes". Guess Harry and team are worried it would cost them clicks

This Is what I don’t get.  This COVID-19 thing has not gone away, even with the earlier closures and reopening of bars.  Where bodies congregate, flesh to flesh, even in Austin.  I know that’s a shock to some of you.  Ha!
 

My daughter is a RN at the main St David’s in Austin.  Labor and delivery nurse, who is in contact with woman in labor on a daily basis.  She even works in the OR in case of C-sections.

So that she could have dinner with my wife and another daughter who is driving down to have dinner in Austin tonight, my RN daughter asked for a Covid-19 test this past week.  She was turned down.  The hospital is not even testing their own employees for Covid 19!  Maybe I’m just a thick headed Sicilian that just can’t understand the hospitals reasoning.  Bottom line????
 

Consequently, just as a precaution my RN daughter won’t be dinIng with us tonight.

It's resources. Labs still have a certain capacity they can process each day. She can still do they cvs drive up test and get it back in 4 days.

I was thinking an anti-masker, 5g conspiracy theorist, and covid denier posted the roll eyes?

Taking down statues and changing team mascots due to racism is being done to stop “making people feel bad” ? Hmmm....

The seven day moving average declined every day from June 3rd through the 22nd.  On the 23rd it notched up slightly, stayed exactly the same the next, decreased slightly for a few more, went up slightly on Sunday, and then marginally down yesterday.  Overall the rate of decline Monday to Monday was about 5.5% - which is the lowest it's been in awhile.  Add the three days of arrest in falling numbers (two slight upticks and one steady day). After a week of fractional decline it seems, to me, that the death figures are close to bottoming out.

Scroll down to daily new deaths in the United States and click on the Seven day moving average box.  When have I not discussed the death figures?  Again, I am concerned about infections, but not AS concerned.  I was expecting the death figures to start going up again about two weeks ago and they still haven't really.

I even mentioned in the post you quoted I was referring to death figures.

Deaths go up when hospitals get maxed. Two weeks ago the hospitals were still at low ICU numbers. 

With that said - today Dallas clocked in at 20 deaths.

I know deaths tend to follow infections, but infections had been stable for awhile and infections were still going down nationwide instead of remaining stable.  Actually deaths started to decrease before infection numbers did!  Then going a bit after the infection numbers stayed in a steady plateau from May 19th through to June 16th the range of daily numbers was in a relatively narrow window.  The infection numbers overall haven't really looked like a "curve" -- but the death figures have more or less had a curve like appearance. 

 

Also, I suspected infections to rise at least a month ago (which means deaths would have already started to kick in by now one would imagine).  Several states started to reopen all the way back in April.  Even California, which was pretty cautious (and where I live) has been mostly open for over a month now.

My wife called me on the 18th freaking out because a coworker tested positive with the virus. The coworker returned from vacation on the 17th with symptoms, and tested positive the next day. I immediately left the office on the 18th and was ordered by work to stay at home for two weeks. I went and got a test on the 24th. My Dr called me yesterday to let me know that I tested positive. My wife's test was botched but they assume she has it too.

Symptoms- A little bit of a stuffy nose, and a little bit of fatigue. I am an avid runner, and I was able to run 4 miles in the summer heat this weekend. However, after the run my energy was zapped. I do not have a fever or cough. I'm in shock that I have it.

I take a multivitamin and zinc every day. I really think this is helping fight the virus. I'm trying to stay active by working out at home.

@CMJ The flat deaths are a result of how bad NY/NJ was and how they have recovered. I don't think your assumptions of how it is going is valid because of that view.

When you look at the regional statistics - like Texas - the deaths and positives have doubled over the past two weeks. But you are correct in that there is no curve - the deaths are pretty linear. 

Federal tests are taking 8 days to return. Houston is running out of tests by noon. These things impact positive ID on deaths too.

The deaths weren't flat...the infections were flat.  Deaths have generally been decreasing since late April until about a week ago.  But even now they're only flat and not really going up.  The 7 day rolling average is probably going to drop slightly again today.

Nationwide.  Yes, New Jersey (the state with the most deaths per capita), New York, Connecticut, etc were hit hard early.  But even now months later there are still only 14 states (counting DC) that have over 300 deaths per million residents.  

 

April 21st the seven day rolling average death count peaked at 2255.  Yesterday that number was 595.

 

6/30 - 581

6/23 - 628

6/16 - 723

6/9 - 850

6/2 - 1080

5/26 - 1040

5/19  - 1429

5/12 - 1730

5/5 - 1902

4/28 - 2003

 

I'm concerned about an upsurge in the death rate.  In fact, I have been anticipating one for weeks.  I remain surprised it hasn't happened yet.

My entire point is that you can't look at nationwide numbers. Look at state numbers. Deaths are rising - they are no flat or down. NY/NJ is throwing nationwide stats off. It allows people to ignore what is going on in their locality. 
 

The deaths per million is baffling. Why Texas would be so low versus other states is a mystery. I know that NYC went back and counted some excess deaths towards covid - you will never see Texas do that.

Deaths in NY and NJ have been "light" for lack of a better word for awhile now.  They ceased really throwing off daily figures that out of whack weeks ago.  At the same time infections in the rest of the country picked up at least six weeks ago and still haven't really shown up in the death numbers in as high of numbers as I anticipated.

 

I am by no means saying this isn't awful.  I'm just saying I expected it to be way worse in say...late April.  Even though I never said it here (because people seemed to think I'd lost it predicting over 100K), I figured we'd be fast approaching 200K by now.  At the very least over 150K.  So, yes - from that standpoint it is not as bad as I thought.
