1,200 deaths reported today, last day this high was Memorial Day weekend. California record 12,000 cases, 150 deaths.
Can you share some stories?I have actually found not wearing the mask and being a stubborn bastard unexpectedly interesting so far.
It's almost as if that's part of the plan...Cause even dr fauci has said that corona virus will probably never be eradicated completely. If masks are actually effective and everyone wears them, then there will be low immunity, and anytime we stop finally mass wearing the masks, it will simply spread like wild fire again and people will just die anyway.
What my posts keep strongly recommending, is that our public behavior should revolve around keeping ourselves safe from the potential consequences of the actions from people that actually believe masks are medically necessary. I don't want you to end up being a victim of violence from an unruly mob, or official enforcement procedures.I have also learned greater empathy for people who are wearing the mask and why they choose to do so,...
In contribution to this thread though I'd make the argument that if you support masks and want to pull the position that most people I've found are making of saving lives, then I don't know how you don't support indefinite mandatory mask wearing basically forever, outside of a vaccine.

Plus there are plenty of other things that kill alot of people every year, like the flu, so I don't know why you couldn't apply the same logic to that, and why mask wearers didn't support a mask mandate in the past over that.
All this assumes that masks are actually effective, which is another discussion to be had. Basically the question is, should we all wear masks, forever, so that some old unhealthy people don't die? And should our entire public behavior revolve around that? That's basically the argument from the mask supporting average person that I'm seeing so far.
ScheduleAmerican life has fallen casualty to a massive disinformation campaign. We can speculate on how this has happened, and why it has continued, but the purpose of the American Frontline Doctor's Summit is to empower Americans to stop living in fear. Join the summit live as we: - Create the opportunity for frontline doctors to talk directly to the American people. - Educate and inform Congresspersons, who have also been subject to widespread misinformation. - Build alliances, as it falls to us physicians to heal our nation.
Nolte: Media Hysteria Convinced Americans 30 Million Died of Coronavirus
A survey shows that Americans believe some 30 million of us have died from the coronavirus, which means they are off by more than 2,000 percent.
Although fewer than 150,000 Americans have died at the hands of the China Virus, when asked to pick a percentage of the American population who succumbed to the virus, Americans chose an average of nine percent.
With a population of — give or take — 330 million, nine percent rounds up to 30 million dead, when the truth is that not even one percent of the population has been lost to the virus — that would be 3.3 million dead. What we’re talking about is something less than one-tenth of one percent — which happens to be one of the lowest rates in the world.
It gets worse…
When asked how many Americans have caught the virus, the average number chosen was 20 percent, so 66 million.
The real number is … … … just four million.
Are people just stupid? Do they not know there are more than 300 million people in America, or not know that fewer than 150,000 have died, or are they just that bad at math?
It’s probably a mix of all three, but as journalist Alex Berenson pointed out when commenting on the survey, the “panic porners” have “won.”
Although the reality of the coronavirus is nothing close to the horrors the “experts” predicted while conning us into these incredibly destructive lockdowns four months ago; although we now know the coronavirus is no more lethal to those under 50 than the conventional flu, the 24/7 politically-driven hysteria from the corporate media, left-wing activists, and the Democrat party, still has people bamboozled into believing this thing is 2000 times worse than it actually is.
And since that nine percent has been “averaged,” that means a whole lot of people chose a much higher number.
The “politically-driven” aspect of this is obvious. The more terrified people are, the more convinced they are the virus is 2000 times worse than it actually is, the harder it is for President Trump to get reelected. This is also why the fake news media are hoping to gaslight people into believing Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) did a good job (he didn’t, especially if you had a loved one in a New York nursing home) while and Florida, Texas, and Georgia are on the verge of an apocalypse.
While there have been an increase in cases in those three states, there has also been an increase in testing — which means you are going to find more cases. The death and hospitalization rates, the numbers that should matter most, are relatively stable and nothing close to alarming.
Nevertheless, the media are pretending those states are horror shows in the hopes those states will flip to Democrats in the 2020 presidential election. So far, that strategy is working. According to the polling, Trump is on the bubble in all three of those states, states he won by comfortable margins in 2016.
Also not helping is Trump himself, who, until recently, seemed more interested in tweeting his childish grievances than communicating what his administration is doing about the virus and offering a counter-narrative to the media’s partisan hysteria by way of an effective communications strategy.
Trump has rebooted his coronavirus briefings. This might help, but only if the president shows some discipline and leadership, as opposed to last time when he turned the briefings into interminable, all-about-Trump grudge matches with a media that was determined to destroy the briefings.
So not all of this is media’s fault, or the fault of math teachers, or the fault of an America more familiar with Kim Kardashian’s beauty routine than the population of its own country.
More tests equals more confirmed positive cases. They've been saying since the start that most people are asymptomatic or only mildly symptomatic, so it's likely that much of the population has or had the virus and been unaware because they just didn't feel sick. The real numbers to watch are death rates and hospitalization rates, which aren't following the same growth curve as confirmed cases.What is the explanation for the cases growing but deaths dropping for such a long time? Less dangerous strain? Labs using new tests that pick up the common cold as Corona?
At first I thought that such a gap was normal since Corona takes a long time to kill, but now there has to be an explanation.
For some reason, the image of Bill Gates' smirk popped in my mind when reading this (he has the habit to smile at very unappropriate moments in interviews, when discussing depressing things like the lockdown or 'pandemic 2')More people have died from suicide and drug overdoses than coronavirus.
Center for Disease Control Director Robert Redfield testified in a Buck Institute webinar that suicides and drug overdoses have surpassed the death rate for COVID-19. Redfield argued that lockdowns andtownhall.com
