I was made aware of four COVID deaths in eight days. People one degree removed from me. All from this same Texas County.

The stupid unvaccinated have not stopped volunteering for death.

Covid comes in waves, just like the flu or a cold. This is the pause before the next one comes, which appears it might be Delta plus, which is already hitting England and China.

We still have tons of the vaccinated just waiting on their turn at ICU.

Overall, in Minnesota cases are dropping, but we have pockets where we continue to have overstrapped hospitals. My hospital is back to postponing elective surgery, no beds for acute care or trauma. All the Covid patients that are on ventilators are unvacinnated. 50% under the age of 55. One of the counties we serve voted for trump 60+%. Go figure.

Take a measurement in Austin starting last weekend. The Grand Prix had 140,000 attendees.

The UK is going through another surge, which means we will have another surge as well. Until the covidiots get on board with getting vaccinated and wearing masks, we're stuck with this thing.

Shut up, dopey. Don't you have some horse-paste to take rectally?

June 20, 2021: 4,063 Cases; 11,133 7-Day Average

October 25, 2021: 105,561 Cases; 70,291 7-Day Average

Sure, they're "falling," but it's not a good reason to abandon any of the measures that have allowed them to fall.

Huh? They are climbing pretty rapidly in Michigan. MAYBE the 7 day starting to flatten a bit but statewide we are half the peaks we hit in April. I live in one of the more unvaccinated areas too and our numbers are almost the April peaks.

Here in Okiehomie cases are down and deaths continue on their steady pace. In the land of so many casinos it's a good bet that if you get a Covid case, you're a goner. So many patriots to be proud of--free of the shackles of this vale of tears, and leaving their families destitute...

So no one has brought up the fact that "states" like Florida lie about their caseload?

Also of note: In the south people are now going back outside because the oppressive heat is gone. In the north, we are just starting to gather inside...

I was already thinking about that but didn't say it. Florida has been trying to cover up and lie about numbers for a LONG time.

The decline in cases is thanks almost entirely to Blue States.

That's what happens when you kill off all those at greatest risk and refused to get vaccinated. Let's look at the numbers:

58,933 dead in Florida, a population of 21,500,000. That's 274 dead per 100,000 Floridians.
California? Hit hardest and early before vaccinations and therapeutics?
71,800 deaths out of a population of 39,510,000. That's 181 dead per 100,000 Californians.

DeSantis has killed off 1 .5 times more people than died in CA from COVID in less time, despite having vaccinations and therapeutics, and way more information on what works.

Heck of a job Governor DeathSentence. Way to cheerlead a disaster, Skeptical!
BTW - As JPW stated yesterday on another thread, Florida's now 7th highest rate of COVID cases in the United States behind...
North Dakota
South Carolina
South Dakota.
All red states. Heck of a job, Republicans.

There is nothing the office of the Governor puts out that I trust, and I say that as a born and raised right here Floridian.

I recommend the cdc's weekly report for a source of information. Though it is dependent on states supplying information, and FL was caught withholding information fro months at a time, it still gives a good overall picture of things.

You can download the Community Profile Report at:

When you see NAAT, that stands for nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) and it's used to detect one or more RNA gene targets specific to the virus.

For instance, Florida's dropped way off, however NAAT is showing an increase. FL is still listed as "Substantial Transmission States/Territories." There are no "Low Transmission States/Territories" and only PR is in the "Low Transmission States/Territory" list.

We aren't out of this.
