Why everyone was wrongThe coronavirus is slowly retreating. What actually happened in the past few weeks? The experts have missed basic connections. The immune response against the virus is much stronger than we thought.By Beda M Stadler

Turley is a Law Professor that appears to be straight forward in his approach to the law. Also believe he is more of a “classical” Democrat.

Since this began, my wife and I have tried to live our live as normal as possible. During the first several weeks we took of on Fridays to visit state parks. We stopped at several convenience stores on those trips not wearing a mask. We did our grocery shopping our local stores, Publix and Aldi mostly and occasionally at Kroger, again no masks. As Georgia began to open we were one of the first to dine-in at a Longhorn Steakhouse. Since then we've eaten out at least once a week for dinner and several times for breakfast. During this time we've made several trips to Costco, Walmart and Home Desperate. Only wore a mask at Costco because they wouldn't let us in the door without one. We've been to several medical facilities where masks were required. I've taken my wife to urgent care twice where I got to sit in the car. I've had her to PT for her balance issues and we are required to wear masks there.

I've learn to use common sense. When walking through stores I tend to keep my hands in my pockets so as to not make contact with others. When passing someone in an aisle I give them a wide berth. We've done well to this point (knock on wood) and I suspect if we continue to use our common sense we will still do well.
This past Tuesday I held a meeting at the airport with parent and youth that were participating in our youth program. We are starting back up and had made some changes to it and had new paperwork for parents and youth to sign. I had several of the mentors there and somewhere around twenty others. I advertised that the meeting was masks optional at their discretion. Most came in with them on and one or tow took them off for the meeting. We can accommodate ninety-six in the space so we could easily space out.

This morning we had our first session with the youth. I had nine youth and eight mentors in attendance. Again masks were optional and the majority chose to wear masks. I took everyone's temperature as they came in, no one was above 97.8. Everything went well. The airport is in Gwinnett County, the hottest spot in Georgia currently.  The four hot counties are all blue. I'm a couple of counties to the NE, were the rednecks live ;)

I just received my Trump 2020 masks Friday. Will try them at some point.  Our church has begun meeting again on our building. I am not attending as masks are required, I can watch online.

How fucking creepy!  You follow me around the internet?  Am I so important to you?!  I knew you were an ignorant SOB, but I have no idea you were a fucking stalker!
No one is allowed to read PoA except you?

I am understanding the ruling just kicks it back to the lower court.

What I take away from this is that Vietnamese cloth masks are better than nothing, but Vietnamese medical masks are better than cloth masks.  That's what their data indicate.  What i don't know is what they mean by "cloth mask".  My cloth mask is three layers of T-shirt fabric sandwiching a coffee filter.  I suspect it is thicker and more effective than most surgical masks.

All that said, this study is actually fairly useless, as it tests the wrong thing.  I never said my mask would keep me safe from the virus, I doubt in the strongest possible terms that it will.  I do think it will attenuate the spread of virus should I become infected.  That is a separate question that they did not address in this study.
I suspect  ::)

This study is the first RCT of cloth masks, and the results caution against the use of cloth masks. This is an important finding to inform occupational health and safety. Moisture retention, reuse of cloth masks and poor filtration may result in increased risk of infection. Further research is needed to inform the widespread use of cloth masks globally. However, as a precautionary measure, cloth masks should not be recommended for HCWs, particularly in high-risk situations, and guidelines need to be updated.

Canada has tested about 3% of their population.  The United States has tested almost 10%, much of that in the last month.

So, my reaction is...duh.
Some other info that proves the graphic useless. The vast majority of people that live in Canada live in either Quebec Province (8,433,301) or Ontario Province (14,446,515). Those two provinces comprise 22,929,816 of approx 39M total. They have a total of 91,885 of the cases in Canada or 87.6% of the total cases for the country.  Quebec Province has had 5,577 deaths and Ontario 2,689
 If I use Georgia as a comparison to Quebec, GA has a couple million more people than Quebec and has had 95,516 cases and 2,860 deaths. We've had few more deaths than Ontario Province, which has a population of roughly 30% more and nearly half the deaths of Quebec Province.
 You can make many other comparisons. I think everyone knows that New York and New Jersey make up the vast majority of numbers in the U.S.
The graphic was shared by my grand-daughter on FB. I had my wife send it to me. I find it interesting how these kids automatically see something like that and share it without any real thought or logical analysis. The majority of comments on the page are also quite revealing.

I believe the death rate is approaching the point where this will no longer be considered a Pandemic, until the term Pandemic is redefined.
