All Things Covid-19 Related

Since the only open COVID-19 topic that is still open is specifically about it being used to take away rights I think we need a basic Covid-19 topic.


As the US seems to be set to approve 2 vaccines and others in various stages of testing (one of which I am taking part) and with the UK having approved a vaccine are we at the end of the tunnel? Some suggest that we need 75% of the population to get a shot or have recovered from it. (about 250 Million people). If we assume 15 to 20 Million have had it and recovered we have a LONG way to go. It would be great if they had a rapid test for antibodies as well as a vaccine.

Personally I think as they know how to make vaccines the process to approve ought to be streamlined with vaccines made avaliable but with the understanding that it is experimental with immunity for the manufactures if anything goes wrong. I would take one!

Joe Biden wants all states to put forth a 100 day mandatory mask rule in place. The Federal Government clearly has ZERO authority to do enforce this so he will have to go hat in hand to the states. Even then can the sates even force that? (I think not)

I do wear my mask at work and when I am out. And I will continue to do so. As I said I put my body up for testing. Wheather or not it was a real vacceen or a placabo (something I may know in about 90 days) I am willing to be a test subject (yes I get paid: maybe $300? but I thought all I was getting was the 41 cents a mile)

I do my part.... do you?

Rudy demands the lab overturn the test reults.

In general, the Trump virus seems more likely to target those not takings protective measures seriiously and not taking responsibily for their own actions than those who do.

Can social media tell you how Covid-19 safe others are?

10 hrs ago

Can social media tell you how Covid-19 safe others are?

With all the guidelines around proper mask wearing, social distancing, and other Covid-19 precautions, many of us have had the experience of seeing someone on social media not following the rules, and wondering what to do next.



Dr. Carisa Parrish, Associate Professor at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, told KCBS Radio that she's seen lots of scrutiny at Johns Hopkins on having "community behavior be in sync with our professional behavior, to prevent community spread for those of us that work in the hospital setting."

She said she understands that people want to be safe, which could be the reason for stalking their coworkers' socials.

Social media may be one way for people to keep track of whether the people they spend time around are taking precautions seriously, but it's easy for the platforms to turn into something that isn't constructive.

Dr. Parrish said that calling out people's behavior isn't always the best way to change their mind, and even if we do see people being safe outside of work, we still need to follow precautions at the office.



"Knowing what someone is doing all the time outside of work doesn't change how safe we need to be." She noted that just because someone practices different precautions than you do at home, "it doesn't necessarily change what I'm going to do to be safe when I'm at work with my coworkers."

She emphasized how important it is to be cautious whether or not you've seen how someone is handling the pandemic.

"We still need to wear our masks at work, we need to practice social distancing, we need to limit in person meetings regardless of how well we know exactly the behavior of every single other coworker."

Even if we see other people on their social media unmasked, the best way to stop the spread is to take precautions ourselves and to limit interactions with others, regardless of if we think we know what they've been doing.

Many aren't buying public officials' 'stay-at-home' message. Experts say there's a better way

Soumya Karlamangla 1 hr ago
The LA Times logoMany aren't buying public officials' 'stay-at-home' message. Experts say there's a better way

With the coronavirus running rampant in Los Angeles and hospitals projected to overflow by Christmas, officials have fallen back on a familiar refrain: Stay home.

a person holding a sign: L.A. County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, left, at a March news conference in Los Angeles. (Damian Dovarganes / Associated Press)© (Damian Dovarganes / Associated Press) L.A. County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, left, at a March news conference in Los Angeles. (Damian Dovarganes / Associated Press)

“My message couldn’t be simpler: It’s time to hunker down. It’s time to cancel everything,” Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said last week. “If you’re able to stay home, stay home.”

Some 33 million Californians are now under a new regional stay-at-home order that began Sunday night, a last-ditch effort to turn the corner on an alarming rise in coron... statewide. The blunt messaging worked to bend the curve in the spring, when fear of the novel virus and the insidious ways it might spread kept many indoors. But nine months later, the words seem to have lost their meaning.


...


A similar story has played out nationwide, as millions of Americans zigzagged across the country to visit family over the Thanksgiving holiday, flouting the advice of health officials.

“It’s not because the public is irresponsible; it’s because they are losing trust in public health officials who put out arbitrary restrictions,” said Dr. Monica Gandhi, an infectious-disease specialist at UC San Francisco. “We are failing in our public health messaging.”

Health officials are up against a fatigued public, as well as a number of people who don't believe in the danger of the virus, Gandhi said. But she is also part of a growing number of experts who think there's a better way to engage those who do want to take the pandemic seriously — by taking a lesson from the public health strategy known as harm reduction.

Typically used to describe sex-education programs and needle exchanges for drug users, harm reduction aims to mitigate the risks of dangerous behaviors instead of trying to get people to cease altogether.

When it comes to the COVID-19 pandemic, a harm-reduction approach would encourage masking and social distancing instead of demanding that people have no contact at all with friends or family they don't live with. In other words, even during a pandemic, abstinence-only isn't effective.

L.A., however, has adopted more of a "just say no" attitude. Last week the county became one of the only places in the nation to halt all outdoor gatherings among people who aren’t in the same household, prohibiting two friends from meeting up in a park or going on a hike with masks on. Gov. Gavin Newsom followed suit and included the ban in his regional stay-at-home order.

California officials are desperate to reverse an unprecedented flood of new coronavirus cases up and down the state, and even their critics acknowledge the impossibility of the situation. But banning relatively safe outdoor activities risks alienating people who want to follow the rules but feel exhausted, disregarded and sometimes confused by them, Brown University health economist Emily Oster said.

"Some of the things they're telling you not to do are incredibly low-risk," Oster said. "When you are so strict about what people can do, they stop listening."

Black America must wake up to this viral threat

01:30/02:36
Now PlayingVan Jones: Start...
Van Jones: Start screaming this to the black community 02:36

CNN host Van Jones is the CEO of the REFORM Alliance, a criminal justice organization for which Jessica Jackson serves as the chief advocacy officer. The views expressed in this commentary are his own. View more opinion on CNN.

(CNN)At the start of any pandemic, early information can mislead. Unfortunately, for vulnerable populations, false assumptions can have deadly consequences.

African Americans are about to learn this awful truth -- in devastating ways.
Two data points converged at the start of this crisis to make a lot of black folk shrug and think, "Coronavirus is not our problem."
Myth #1: Covid-19 is a white disease.
The Americans who were initially diagnosed with the virus were mostly white. At the beginning of the epidemic, the media understandably focused on affluent white people who had traveled overseas, especially to Asia. The impact of this news coverage had African Americans joking among ourselves that perhaps we were somehow immune to the virus. As crazy as it sounds, a rumor took off that this was a disease that kills only white people.
And yet, when I warned my family of the coming pandemic, my highly educated cousin told me, with great confidence: "No, we got the antibodies for that!"
My cousin's reaction reminded me of the early days of the HIV epidemic, when people thought of AIDS as a "white, gay" disease. The first visible victims were gay white men. But the illness soon devastated black communities and African nations. Today, AIDS is largely associated with poverty and race.
Covid-19 is likely to follow the same trajectory. The perception that the disease impacts older, more affluent and whiter populations will soon give way to a heartbreaking realization: the virus is crushing poorer and blacker populations, and it's affecting young people, too.
Myth #2: Younger people are safe.
And yes -- I did say "younger." The second data point was that (in Asia and Europe) this disease has mostly killed older people. Since communities of color are statistically much younger than the white population, many thought this disease posed no particular threat to people of color.
However, it's important to keep in mind, first, that younger people -- even healthy ones -- are at risk of contracting and spreading the virus. In states like New York, about one in five hospitalizations are occurring in people under the age of 44, according to the city's health department. And the numbers appear even grimmer in parts of the South.

Looks like it’s spreading from one to the other on Trump’s legal team. Guess they thought it wasn’t necessary to wear masks.


https://www.politico.com/...vid-443688

Trump lawyer who attended White House party tests positive for Covid

“Jenna Ellis, who has worked alongside Rudy Giuliani on behalf of the Trump campaign to file lawsuits in battleground states, has tested positive for Covid-19.

Another main figure in President Donald Trump’s legal battle to challenge the results of the 2020 election has tested positive for Covid-19, people inside the White House and Trump campaign confirmed on Tuesday.”
Always smile in the face of adversity. smile
America gave Trump his eviction notice on 11/3/20, and now he’s the only president in U.S. history to be impeached twice.

My post was about his biased posts that only whined about people from one party being vaccinated before others when people from his party and their spouces have also being vaccinated before others. They were all after Only had a 50:50 chance of being vaccined - yet he whined that AOC was vaccinated before higher risk people like him. All members of Congress and many others in government roles or related to government are also able to be vaccinated early.

.

A key reason for this is to demonstrate that people in government in all parties believe that the vaccination is safe and we should take the jab.

.

Nothing in this is ungrateful for anyone who participates in a drug trial.

Volunteering for a drug trial is not the same as getting an approved vaccine without people like dausa there would be no approved vaccine remember that.

you are half right... nancy should get one as she is 3rd in line. For sure the President and Vice presidet (maybe not trump if he had it) and joe and harris...


but not AOC she is what 30? 32?

but other than that they should not be allowed to skip the normal line.

Mitch is 78... so maybe he should have waited too....

I did not see anyone other than AOC and that pelosi get theirs... i admit I was wrong with Nancy...even if she sherks masks and was telling people it was nothing and to go out in public when it was just starting out...she is 3rd in line so she gets one.

I am completely right about all the things I can verify - Let's break it down:

.

I said two things: (1) you did not complain about GOP representatives getting an early jab, just Dem representatives. (2) you are in a program to that could have seen you get an an early jab before AOC,

.

(1) I indicated that you did not complain about Pence or McConnell being vaccinated - I was correct you did not

.

That is the half of what I said and it is 100% right.

.

So, either you are wrong about me being only half correct or the other half is incorrect. This means either you are lying about me being half right or you are lying about you being in a Covid 19 trial. This is the constant problem you create for every one. You make shit up all the time so no one can tell when or if you are telling the truth.

.

Now, why did you not complain about all the politicans and high government officials whom Pence and GOP have made eligible for early jabs? You only limited it to Nancy and AOC because they are from the other party. Where is your complaint that Pence's wife jumped the queue?
