You can't beat nature.

We certainly all can't hunker down at home until they create the ever illusive vaccine.


That's what I'm torn on. It's impossible to completely lock this down... yet the implications for overflown hospitals, a medical system under immense pressure, as if we don't have a troubled medical system (in terms of cost, bankruptcies) as is.


It's way cheaper for the government to pay everyone's Covid-19 related medical bills than it is for it to support the entire populations every need. Plus, they built temporary hospitals and so we still have those to fall back on.

Can't imagine why an icu would fill up when you brainwash everyone into thinking they are going to die from the flu.

The small business flu.
The silent killer that won't harm you if you pack together in large groups to shop.


Flu... yeah.

Good thing the White House House cutting funding to testing centers in Texas. If we can't test for it then nobody actually has it. That's how it works, right?

For the most part, Texas is taking it in stride, I know, Iive here, plus with a source so high up in the healthcare system, I've been told this several days ago by him on the grim situation involving hospital space.

However, one point of contention is BARS, and as the article postulated, young people. The biggest issue here were Bars being packed like sardines, so much so that consequnces have emerged.


Of more than 3,000 establishments inspected over the weekend, 12 bars in Houston, Seabrook, Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, Lubbock, El Paso and McAllen saw their alcohol licenses suspended for 30 days under Operation Safe Open.

Source: www.usatoday.com...

Obviously it isn't the main source, but a contributing source, infact I would say many things are contributing factors.

Side note:


Gov. Greg Abbott on Monday called the rising rate of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations “unacceptable,” but said he has no plans to shut down the state again



“We must find ways to return to our daily routines as well as finding ways to coexist with COVID-19,” Abbott said in a news conference. “Closing down Texas again will always be the last option.”


I'm damn proud of my State, We're not shutting down, we must learn to live with it, Live your lives out people, your lives are your own.

Pretty soon we'll be down to zero cases.

All those people in the ICU? Just a bad cold, and purely psychosomatic.

Of course, I posted a link in another thread when the ICU was nearing capacity (about 2 days ago), and that article stated only fraction of those in ICU were confirmed or suspected covid (~400/1200), but one has to wonder...why the surge????

Doesn't look well...

LOL Texas cant fund their own testing?

Only a commie would think to call the White house for a covid test

Some States have re-opened hospitals for elective surgery .
Here in Georgia there was a backlog of 10s of thousands .
You have to delve a bit deeper into the numbers , as sometimes certain qualifiers do not make the media.

Well I have a lot to do with the Texas Medical Center as a chemotherapy patient..

Only about 30% of the icu beds are due to coronavirus, the rest are elective surgery and emergency cases.

In addition, they can remote instrument any bed, so that it is close to an icu setup.

The governor has ended elective surgery, so that portion of the use should clear out pretty soon.
In addition, there are many affiliated peripheral hospitals that patients can get transferred into.

That still doesn't help during the two weeks or so until the attempts to resolve the cases take effect.
I swear that our politicians do NOT understand lag times between cause and effect.

Hmmmmm 😷


According to a document obtained by The Houston Chronicle, about 28 percent of ICU beds are being used by COVID-19 patients, while 72 percent of them are currently occupied by non-COVID-19 patients.

Yeah right , flu. They're still spamming that one .

Pretty soon all of these idiots are going to have to shut their damn mouths . When they contract Corona too probably

At 11 % and that's without the offset of uncounted excess deaths .

They give it 99% survival rate , no links , all while the media are quietly zipped up about the death rate and hospitalisation rate .

Can you provide any recent research or evidence of heard immunity happening in humans naturally?

I don't think heard immunity is real unless a vaccine is being used.

Then there's this:

Coronavirus antibodies may last only two to three months after infection, study suggests


Researchers examined 37 asymptomatic people, those who never developed symptoms, in the Wanzhou District of China. They compared their antibody response to that of 37 people with symptoms. The researchers found people without symptoms had a weaker antibody response than those with symptoms.

Within eight weeks, 81% of the asymptomatic people saw a reduction in neutralizing antibodies, compared with 62% of symptomatic patients. Additionally, antibodies fell to undetectable levels in 40% of asymptomatic people, compared with 12.9% of symptomatic people, according to the study’s findings.

Can you provide evidence that a successful vaccine has ever been created for a Corona virus?

Ahh

uncounted excess deaths completely real and verifiable.

uncounted excess infections don't exist, inflated, disinformation.

That's terrible news; I even heard nuclear power plants where going to melt down as power workers came down with the disease. I heard this cold happen as early as April.
