    I brought this shit up weeks ago about Roy getting haircuts and his flying to Florida to attend fundraisers, but nobody seemed to mind. Because it's Trump, it's a BFD.

    Also, only one mask is required. According to the CDC, they do as much harm as good. If you're infected, the mask reduces the amount of virus your body can shed and increases the risk of complications (incl immune system overreaction and cytokine storms).

    We should be grateful for good news in Georgia

    According to JP Morgan's analytics, states that reopened are performing better on caseload reduction than states that are remaining closed. This dovetails with studies indicating that being indoors increases transmission risks and disease severity.

    Imma go ahead and assume the handcuffs (pun???) came off traffic stops for phase 2. 20 mile round trip for dinner and saw no less than 7 people pulled over. Don’t think I’ve seen blue lights in about 8 weeks.

    Saw several on 40 headed east this morning. Phase 2 didn't start until 5pm but it IS Memorial Day weekend and revenue is most definitely down...

    Yeah...this was about 7p...and figured they’d be making up for lost revenue for the next several months. I felt it was almost comical how blatant it seemed.

    They Warned, the Public, they'd be out there for the Holiday! Their trying to get the Interstate speed, back down to 90! I drove home this afternoon, in that Monsone, from Concord to Mount Holly. I could feel my truck hydroplaning, off & on, at 65-70 mph, on I-485. Yet many cars & trucks passed me, above 70 mph. I So wanted to see one spin off the road, but it didn't happen.

    Same up here.
    Governor literally said, "we're tired of getting complaints of people doing 90 on I-95. We will be enforcing."

    Who are these assholes that complained?

    Tonight I stayed in town for dinner...max speed of 45. But I do know over the last several weeks in those same 45mph zones I’m doing 60ish and get passed like I’m walking...so I assume the local PD holds the same sentiment as HP.

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) nows estimates that 35 percent of coronavirus infections are asymptomatic. For symptomatic cases, the CDC is saying the fatality rate the coronavirus:
    • 0-49 years old: .05%
    • 50-64 years old: .2%
    • 65+ years old: 1.3%
    • Overall ages: .4%
    According to the CDC’s current best estimate, the case fatality rate of the coronavirus is .4 percent... amongst symptomatic cases, which, the CDC estimates, is 65 percent of all cases. This means the CDC estimates that the fatality rate for all infections across all age groups, symptomatic as well as asymptomatic, is approximately .26 percent.

    There's good data indicating that the asymptomatic percentage is as much as 70pct.

    But it's more fatal than the whatever strain of influenza.
    MSM says so.
    Must be true

    If I'm doing the math correctly, then 1 out of 400 people die, which equals 825,000 Americans dead if the virus had 100% penetration. I'm guessing 100% never happens though.

    I think the flu typically kills 30,000-40,000 every year.

    Does that math add up. Currently list ~97k deaths and 1.6m cases?

    Worth noting that is over a 7+ month period, vs < half that for Covid

    Probably only 10% to 30%? Penetration in USA so far. I could be way off on that. My math was based on 330,000,000 people in the USA.

    So my math says 20 million deaths based on those numbers. 330 million people. 1.6 million cases so far. 97k deaths.

    (330m/1.6m)* 97k = 20 million.

    Not sure I did that math right. And assuming 100% penetration
