This is just tragic. I don't find it funny, I pray for the recovery of these misguided fools and for their families. We have got to convince Americans to take the virus seriously. I think misreporting or calling it a hoax should be a crime, misleading Americans about this virus for purely political purposes should land you in jail.

Amazing, 43 confirmed cases from a single house party, and yet none from all the protest that have been going on for weeks. It is amazing how specific this virus is: parties bad, church bad, hair salons bad, sporting events in the US bad, school bad. Protest no problem. Since this virus is so bad, make sure every protester is arrested and thrown in jail since they don't care about grandma and grandpa.

PHINPHAN there is a simple explanation. The protesters mostly wore masks and social distanced and they were outdoors. So, if they didn't contract the virus how are they a danger to Grandma and Grandpa? Your post simply makes no sense.

You are so full of it. You and the media are so quick to defend the protesters. They were not social distancing and the first several nights they were not wearing masks and after that many still weren't. They were all close together for several weeks and so don't try to say they didn't help spread the virus. Talk about misinformation and lying. Everyone says that those who don't wear mask, do not care that they are going to kill their grandparents, and so all those protesters should be put in jail for killing the elderly.

And if masks work so well with the protesters, open everything up and make everyone wear a mask and the virus will go away, correct?

It's a giant conspiracy and you broke it!

Deep State agents infiltrated the party and dosed everyone with COVID-19.

I can't believe it took 7 months for someone to finally catch on.

There's no such thing as a pandemic.

Just Deep State operatives, going around infecting Trump supporters.

Bill Gates needs us all to get a vaccine so he can implant us all with chips.

Because the Deep State and Bill Gates, along with Soros and the Clinton foundation, in association with the Obamas and Jimmy Carter, really wants to know what you're up to in your double wide.

Get a grip Clown, I am not saying that it didn't happen with the party, I am sure it did, but it is amazing how this is giant news, but you never hear about the virus being spread by the protesters. Danni is talking about misinformation and cover ups on this page and I am pointing out that the spreading of the virus by the protesters is not being talked about all. To say that they are not spreading it would be a big lie.

"I am pointing out that the spreading of the virus by the protesters is not being talked about all."

Actually there was mention of protesters spreading virus, albeit referring to the haircut protesters who protested indoors in Michigan's state house.

I wonder if the people at this party played Beastie Boys:

You've got to fight
For your right
To par-tay!

Funny thing
RFID's are now back in play, along with the "cashless" scam of old

What's most disturbing about RFID implant conspiracies memes going on right as we speak is that the clowns promoting it seem oblivious to the fact the cellphone they voluntarily have glued to them is in reality and RFID devise

Unfathomable stupidity

No wonder eberly wants to bury it in his litter box

"I am pointing out that the spreading of the virus by the protesters is not being talked about all."

We've had articles on it posted on the D.R. The reason is everyone was braced for the protest to increase the spread. Some places even did testing to see if the protesters themselves were testing higher than the general population. They didn't test higher.

That became useful information in understanding the spread. Useful to anyone that cares about the pandemic and not the politics of it.

We also know that when people gather inside it spreads. We've known that for a months. Transmission from infected tourists from Wuhan went to a restaurant in Guangzhou where a breakout occurred. They analyzed and the airflow from an AC system and contact tracing showed how it was spread at one restaurant: wwwnc.cdc.gov

So you can say whatever you want, pretend whatever you wish, but it won't change reality. Do stupid stuff, go to house parties without masks, indoors, no social distancing, and you're asking for it. Then those idiots go out and infect others, and so on. That's why the positive cases spike the way they do.

Amazing that there are still people here who don't get that outdoors vs indoors makes a huge difference.

I pray for the recovery of these misguided fools and for their families.

Recovery?

Did any of them get sick? I didn't see that mentioned.

Of course not, they all went to a house party, no masks, no social distancing, carried on, and then all went to get tested "just because" they thought it'd be cool. No one was showing any symptoms. Same with those that came in contact with them.

If everybody wore a mask and practiced social distancing all the time, we probably could open up as long as fast testing and widescale contact tracing was being done.

Emphasis added.
