  1. I agree. However, how possible was / is this, realistically? What happened, happened on a mass scale, and there are opportunists everywhere, ready to take advantage and have a huge impact. So, sometimes the media is just covering those who are using ...
  2. I would tell him that cases were coming from Europe in addition to China, and the virus was likely circulating in December in the US.

    COVID: It's Time to be Outspoken

    This is exactly correct and thank you for writing this for all to see and learn. As Scott Gottlieb (yes, Media Master and Pfizer board member Scott Gottlieb) says, "we know their viral titers fall much more quickly than those who are unvaccinated. So...

    COVID: It's Time to be Outspoken

    I just looked up hospitalizations by age. On Oct 16, the 18-49 year old age range has about 800, while the 65 and over have a little fewer than 200 more than that, so your comment tracks. I'll keep trying to find good data on ICUs and ages.

    COVID: It's Time to be Outspoken

    Is there no byline? If not, why not? I agree with just about everything in this (authorless) piece and really appreciate it. I may start a thread of my own, but lately, it seems that the comments section of another online resource I use, Medscap...

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    Yes, it's dependent on vaccination, which is my point. And I think we can tell some things about Delta, based on how it's passed through other countries. I don't think it's unforeseen that with the uptick in cases, we are seeing a concomitant uptick...

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    But don't you think we actually do have a way this thing is gonna go? I mean, you could pretty accurately track the gradual increase in cases with the slowdown of the vaccinations. One has something to do with the other in terms of mass public health...

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    Question for those nurses working with patients staying in your facility two weeks or even longer: how do things go in your setting with patients who refuse to get vaccinated?

    Cases are definitely on the increase now, even if slight.

    Take the Time to Watch!!

    Nearing the end, and O my Lord, he's talking about the "globalists" and vaccination as a way to enact behavioral norms. (Because he says you have to be vaccinated to go to a, wait for it, Dallas Mavericks game.) This man is OFF THE RAILS officially n...

    Take the Time to Watch!!

    At about a quarter of the way through I was finding myself agreeing with him on many things. But towards the end of this exceedingly long video, I asked myself has all the world gone crazy? In my view, he would have had a lot more credibility had he ...

    There is still time to turn the increasingly swaying ship around. People are practically walking down the street desperate to give vaccines. What is the key to unlocking this asinine hesitancy? That seems to be the $64,000 question.

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    Something - not Texas - is definitely up. Last week, our percentage decrease in cases day by day was increasing impressively, usually about 25% on up. Now it's down to a -0.2% decrease, a fairly steep fall off. The seven-day average now appears to be...

    The rapid decrease of cases in the US is certainly decreasing, but I don't think Texas went from ~1,000 cases per day to 9,000.

    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    There are vaccines, they are just not used in the US. FWIW, I have heard, but don't know for sure, that the TB vaccines are mostly used to prevent an encephalopathy in children as opposed to respiratory complications in adults, but that is second han...
