I was initially concerned when the Governor reopened the state as we are only 58 miles away from the Border. But it is what it is and yes they do have a huge metropolitan population that lives a clustered and densely populated life around Atlanta ranked at 10th largest in USA. Also of note that the CDC has its headquarters in Atlanta.

Coronavirus cases, deaths in Georgia continue to decline, three weeks after re-opening

For whatever reason the Face Masks have now just begun to appear on those speaking to us. So why is that? Then again Georgia's Republican governor that is home to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] reopened the state. So we have much conflicting information as posturing by those who govern. I also just noticed that Nancy Pelosi and others are now appearing at press conferences wearing face masks. Some are very fashionable wrote one reporter. That also includes the Dr. Fauci and Dr. Brix press conferences as they are now on TV with the face masks. Here's a recent link:

Anthony Fauci, Deborah Birx wear masks, Trump doesn't in address on coronavirus vaccines

Then again look at Michigan Governor and her position.

So some Governors are reopening their respective states while others are quite adamant about keeping them closed. Is it a political posturing game or something else that they know but we don't know as they simply cant tell you and some Governors are just being pragmatic about the situation while others have gone over the mental deep end in response to what they know.

After all we all are human and have emotions and for whatever reason China had their military take charge of their COVID-19 response whereas the USA is handling it by elected and appointed politicians and experts.

First, to say experts are handling it. I'd say we have more knowledgeable people on the forum then the experts in the White House. First, masks should have been mandatory on the Diamond Princess, but now, reason why, well, it was used as a closed experiment how the virus travels. You have to remember that the Japanese military was involved with that.
Also, the Diamond Princess has now left Yokohama today and headed for Malaysia. Will be in operation in October.

I'm happy that Kemp has opened things up. He took a lot of criticism that it was too soon, etc., but the original intent of the lockdown was to not overwhelm the hospital system, and that has succeeded.

The fact that I was able to go to Walmart or Home Depot the entire time, but not a local business or restaurant just shows the contradictions throughout this whole fiasco. The elderly and most susceptible should have been the only ones locked down. The issue will now be what happens come late fall when flu season begins and cases of COVID start appearing again. Will we have more knee-jerk reactions and unnecessary shutdowns?

I'm skeptical of the actual data. According to the graphs, total number of cases continue to climb, deaths have pretty much leveled GADPH, but the data is a mess.

I'm not sure that the numbers are accurate, either there is lack of reporting or the way the deaths are counted, but that's just my opinion.


In the latest bungling of tracking data for the novel coronavirus, a recently posted bar chart on the Georgia Department of Public Health’s website appeared to show good news: new confirmed cases in the counties with the most infections had dropped every single day for the past two weeks.

In fact, there was no clear downward trend. The data is still preliminary, and cases have held steady or dropped slightly in the past two weeks.



In recent weeks, DPH data issues caused confusion over whether novel coronavirus deaths had topped 1,000 — they are now more than 1,490. The agency erroneously posted at least twice that children died.

Some of these errors could be forgiven as mistakes made during a chaotic time. But putting days in the wrong order, as the recently withdrawn chart did, makes no sense.



A spokeswoman for DPH told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the chart was incorrect because of an error in how it sorted dates. An aide to the governor told Holcomb that a software vendor caused the problem, Holcomb said. A tweet from a Kemp spokesman said the data team behind the chart published it because they thought it would be “helpful.”

Tuscola County Michigan Commissioners took a vote to open the county. They figure if whole county opens the governess can't do anything. Gave the state 3 days to answer questions. I have lots of family there including some police and politicians.

Georgia changed their criteria for reporting cases. If someone does tests positive but shows no symptoms they are not counted.

Link?

That would be an extraordinarily stupid move, considering how pronounced asymptomatic spread is with Covid19.

Today there was news on about level 3 lab on Japanese TV. I didn't get the translation of it, but here is a brief of the meaning:
BSL-3

Again building upon the two prior biosafety levels, a BSL-3 laboratory typically includes work on microbes that are either indigenous or exotic, and can cause serious or potentially lethal disease through inhalation. Examples of microbes worked with in a BSL-3 includes; yellow fever, West Nile virus, and the bacteria that causes tuberculosis.

The microbes are so serious that the work is often strictly controlled and registered with the appropriate government agencies. Laboratory personnel are also under medical surveillance and could receive immunizations for microbes they work with.

Common requirements in a BSL-3 laboratory include:

Standard personal protective equipment must be worn, and respirators might be required
Solid-front wraparound gowns, scrub suits or coveralls are often required
All work with microbes must be performed within an appropriate BSC
Access hands-free sink and eyewash are available near the exit
Sustained directional airflow to draw air into the laboratory from clean areas towards potentially contaminated areas (Exhaust air cannot be re-circulated)
A self closing set of locking doors with access away from general building corridors

Access to a BSL-3 laboratory is restricted and controlled at all times.

Apparently it has to do with a breach of protocol at a BSL-3 Lab, location unknown by me .
It should be on American news tomorrow. Let me know. Send PM if you like.
Or if I get something soon on it, I'll pm you.

That will be interesting....I'm in Genesee.

So we have Flint and Saginaw 2 Impoverished towns in bordering counties. No way she will allow that.

This is just going to keep getting worse here.

My partner is directly involved with a lot of the COVID data through Emory and the CDC.

The one thing I can tell you is that it is a mess.

The only way any entity can make a bold claim of certainty right now in Georgia is pure ass belief ... either way.

I don't believe the Chinese
I don't believe the WHO
I don't believe the CDC
I don't believe in the Bats and Fish Market story
I don't believe many politicians
I don't believe the USA MSM.

I do believe that something however is amiss here and its being pushed by the WHO and many among us.
I do believe in that something is fluid and ongoing that is directly affecting the National Security of the USA.
I do believe that it was a test.

I don't know whether a mistake was made or it was intentionally released.

Yeah, I absolutely don't believe we've been given the full story on this fiasco.

My theory is that this was some form of weaponized flu that accidentally (or maybe even intentionally) was released. The response by the Chinese initially belies this fact imho. The response by the US as well.

I don't think the US wants the public to know this was a weapon (or that the may have even had a hand in it's development). However, I also don't think government really knew / understood what kind of impact it might have in the general population which is why they over reacted with the shut down. Remember the coincidental arrest of the Harvard bio-chem professor with ties to WuHan University last fall.

The other thing that makes me think this is Trump. Love or hate him, Trump seems pretty rational. It is clear he didn't think this was a big deal earlier on and in light of data we have now, pretty sure he'd say this lockdown is bunk. I think he was presented with intelligence indicating it was a weapon and thus why he went along with the shut down all of a sudden.

Given the current data we have, there is no reason CA, IL, MI, NY are in full on lock down now. So I also wonder if this is in fact a political ploy to take advantage of this situation.

We went from buzz phrase "flattening the curve" to alleviate hospital over runs which never occured to now we have to stay in lock down till we have a cure. Completely moving the goal post. This isn't adding up.

He took criticism, but it has been pointed out that Colorado opened at the same time under pretty much identical circumstances and that governor faced no criticism.

I wonder why ...

I think it all adds up quite nicely, depending on motives...

This youtube creator does an incredible job connecting dots, even if I dont always agree with her. This is just the latest one, but some of them have quite damning information.



Otherwise, I think a lot along the same lines, though I feel a lot more is going on beyond just The Virus too.

Clearly this has become about managing peoples expectations more than anything, and those expectations have been very carefully cultivated.

I always thought measuring recommended (not mandated..) social measures according to hospital capacity/capability would be a good way to handle these things. Its been an issue in the past too. Of course, its obviously not about that anymore, if it ever was.

I suspect the reason many places are still shut down completely is they are hoping to inspire some sort of violent response alongside attempting to wreck those parts the nation economically. I would expect them to keep it locked down until that happens too, or if the major goal of technofascism/vaccines/etc. gains enough ground. Whichever comes first, I suppose.
