The pandemic is growing at a faster pace.

The coronavirus pandemic’s pace is quickening worldwide, with nearly 700,000 new known infections reported in the last week after the pathogen found greater footholds in Latin America and the Gulf States.

The virus has infected more than 5.7 million people around the world and killed at least 357,000, according to data compiled by The New York Times. It was only last Thursday that the world crossed the dispiriting threshold of 5 million cases, after it took nearly two weeks for a million more infections to become known.



The article continues to describe how herd immunity is a long way off , with infection rates still in percentages of single digits.

The average case fatality rate is still being worked out of course ,

It is apparently high , not low , as in the 15 % range .

That's most likely why we don't often see reporting on these lines anymore , ie number of tests ( for suspected illnesses ) vs. positive results :


here , mexico news daily quotes Hose Gatell :


He said that 254,794 people have now been tested for the disease and that there are currently 36,131 suspected cases across the country.


Cases are rising in the Americas , the Caribbean , and the middle East . Indonesia in fact has lifted lockdown for its economy's sake , but
infection rates are still rising and fast.

So , don't imagine it's over , is a was or has been . It's not over , in fact it s ratcheting up .

Point of note : yes we have here redirected conventional news sources . There's nothing wrong with doing that . There's not some massive conspiracy to scare the pants off people either . More like the other way round . You're not having some of the pertinent facts shoved in your faces so you don't go and empty the shops en masse, all over again , kapiche ?

It's a pandemic virus , that's what it is , and this is what they do.

It's roulette. Everyone will get it within two years. Most will be asymptomatic. Some will go through hell.

Congrats, it was just delaying the inevitable for no gain. Flatten the curve, they screeched, you'll kill grandma if you don't, they wailed.

Whelp, if this is as dangerous as claimed, looks like you just delayed killing grandma a few months, that's all. Good job! Hysteria for no gain! Great work, folks!

Told you it was useless to try to not let something run it's course. A lot of us tried that, nobody wanted to listen because a fear stiffy is better. At least they get to keep rubbing at it for longer, eh?

Edit: Everyone who both lost their jobs and supported losing them for all this hyperventilating overreacting, hindsight is 20/20. Enjoy the Banana Republic you created, you earned a trashed country.

So we should continue the “lockdowns” I guess. For the greater good. Right?

Keep arresting mom and pop for taking their children for a walk at the park. Or for going fishing. Or crossing the street to visit a friend.

Fricken killers, intentionally spreading a virus.

MASS gatherings and riots destroying cities is perfectly fine though, those guys can carry on......unless they’re actually purchasing something. Then they should be arrested for not social distancing.

HoaxVid-1984.

Democrat governors will attempt to shut their states down again before the election.

You heard it hear first.

It's a bit like that with Indonesia , it's the same choice for many countries , all of them probably : virus explosion or economic collapse .

You couldn't have let coronavirus run its course though , there'd have been complete disaster

Dollars to donuts that there are already over 10 million cases in the US alone. CDC says the "best estimate" for true IFR is 0.26%. Do the math.

Stop buying looking to the talking heads on tv for "news". Get your fear/adrenaline fix somewhere else.

Nobody where I live gives two sh1ts about any of this. I am at my son's graduation which is outdoors and everyone is supposed to be 6 ft apart but then everyone is walking around hugging each other. It's hilarious. I love it.

Newsflash: Covid doesn't give a s#. It's already running it's course whether you like it or not, we're just in the way. You didn't slow it down or give it any roadblocks or brick walls with this crap, you gave everyone false hope. Think the riots are bad right now? Just wait until people figure out lockdowns didn't do squat and it's going to "git 'em" regardless.

What I find laughable is that the Dem governors were so afraid to open anything, yet they had no problem keeping liquor stores going. But there's no gatherings allowed e.g. AA meetings.

Lol now a sheriff just took a picture for a random group of people all cheek to cheek. Didn't seem to bother him a bit.

I think likely 40% or more Americans have it or have had it already. We are hopefully slowly moving towards herd immunity at 75-85% then it will again hopefully be manageable nationwide.

Here in Georgia nervous nellies are upset the number of test cases are down but so are hospitalizations and deaths. We always knew there would be more cases more hospitalizations and even deaths, as for the shutdown what is done is done no going back now. But yea obviously a spot or area shutdown would have likely been sufficient.

Lockdowns have caused infection rates to fall in western settings like Europe and the states .

They've also temporarily held off exponential growth in places like India . But , where there is mass poverty in under developed settings , that's where the problems of economy collapse Vs virus explosion are now critical .

An African lady when asked if afraid of Corona said no . " All death is death " she said , as wary of hunger or violence than any virus including this one .
Those are very true words that all death is death , and those are profoundly relevant at this point .

The first curfews made Indian city streets very quiet indeed . Once many people realised they had no job no food no money and owed rent , that's when the chaos kicked off , took about a week or two . Check the news

Via a distraction technique or two you can accomplish all kinds of things with public perception using the media tools . Between the fourth and fifth estates they take turns to drag temporal public consciousness around .

Meanwhile there's been a serious choice to make , against the advice of many a scientist the politicians have gone with the economy being more important to keep alive
