    Looked at testing #s. Texas testing jumped about 15,000 - 20,000 more per day starting November 7. It is starting to slowly trend down again, but still about 10,000 above daily testing before November 6.

    To understand the case reports we need to see %positive rates and we also need to distinguish between symptomatic cases, asymptomatic cases, and past cases where dead COVID is found in the sample.

    Increase in ICU admittals shows there has been an increase overall, but we need to think through all the data not just the headlines on Google or Yahoo feed.

    This is AZ and is consistent with what I saw today
    People are out en masse despite the latest round of dire warnings

    The study I included shows that asymptotic did not infect others. Past SAR, flu do not. Why do we assume this is completely different than other similar viruses? That is a leap that should require a rct. We have not quarantined asymptotic people in the past that I’m aware of.

    Had Trump not mismanaged all of this, it wouldn't behave differently.

    If he would have followed established public health guidelines he would have won in a landslide.

    Regeneron AB therapy approved. 70% reduction in hospitalizations.

    Nope, no matter what he did the media would have said it was wrong.

    Note how the governor with the most Wuhan deaths, Cumo, was given an Emmy award, I guess as there was a race for most deaths.

    Rocks and bottles work well also, and I’ve been told that use of them does not prevent the protest from being called mostly peaceful.

    Just read that Williamson County just went from 5% positive to 5.38% positive this week. So officials changed our color code from Orange to Red level. That means "uncontrolled" spread. The government is super silly guys. Happy Days was canceled soon after it jumped the shark. Can we cancel government now?

    I also saw a study showing that asymptomatic spread doesn't happen. Asymptomatic cases were tracked to see how many more cases could be linked to them. Very few. No direct link of the new cases to the asymptomatic cases. Just some people who had contact with asymptomatic people also got infections. They could have come from somewhere else. Conclusion of the study was don't worry about asymptomatic spread. Of course no major news outlet reported it.

    If Trump would have followed established guidelines, he would have let normal life go on. If he would have protected freedom like that he may have in fact won.

    It happens or the Chinese person wouldn’t have infected the Germans way back. Outlier? Possibly.

    My link earlier in the thread is about the first identified asymptomatic transmission. I listened to an interview with the researcher a few months ago. It was German.

    Yeah science! Of course our leaders would never consider something that could take away their newfound power.

    Speaking of the flu, why is no one getting it this year? Only Covid? I looked at the state of Texas and only something like 5 counties in Texas have confirmed flu A or B cases.

    Humm, could this be the "corona spike"? Are all flu cases now being called covid?

    Of course. The spikes are ********. Only lame brains think otherwise.

    Vol, some are saying that COVID has pushed aside flu or somehow killed it.

    A coworker of mine got west Nile and enrolled in a 2 year Baylor medicine study. He was told he would be better immune against all viruses moving forward.

    Science

    “Stringency of the measures settled to fight pandemia, including lockdown, did not appear to be linked with death rate.”

    Good for you. There are other reasons to take it too (cancer survivors and so on)
