    We had fewer cases, sure, enough so that the state allowed certain businesses to re-open with accommodations in place that were previously closed outright. But it wasn't a vast improvement, it was a very slow decline and only in certain areas because people in SOME areas never really took it seriously. The problem re-opening was that people took that as some kind of "it's gone!" message and started to completely disregard the safety measures.

    *gasp* surprise! we get a surge in cases!

    Fucking idiots.

    It does feel like the 528th day of March.
    Blessed are the fornicates, may we bend down to be their whores. Blessed are the rich, may our labor deliver them more.
    Blessed are the envious; bless the slothful, the wrathful, the vain. Blessed are the gluttonous, may they feast us to famine and war.

    I think this is the optimistic viewpoint that in November of 2024 the virus will no longer be much of an issue anymore.

    The Eli Lilly therapy Trump is promoting has...problems.

    The three sources who spoke to Reuters requested that their names be withheld so they could speak freely without fear of retaliation.

    Inspectors who visited the Lilly plant in Branchburg, New Jersey, last November found that data on the plant’s various manufacturing processes had been deleted and not appropriately audited, government inspection documents show.

    “The deleted incidents and related audit trail were not reviewed by the quality unit,” the FDA inspectors wrote. Because the government inspection documents reviewed by Reuters were heavily redacted by the FDA it was not possible to see the inspectors’ more specific findings.

    Following its November inspection, the FDA classified the problems as the most serious level of violation, resulting in an “Official Action Indicated” (OAI) notice.

    That “means that the violations are serious enough and have a significant enough impact on the public health that something needs to be fixed,” said Patricia Zettler, a former associate chief counsel at the FDA who is now a law professor at Ohio State University.

    Separately, Lilly said on Tuesday it had paused its clinical trial for the COVID drug in hospitalized patients “out of an abundance of caution” over a potential safety concern. The company did not release information on what the problem was and declined to say how the news might affect their EUA request.
    Reposting here. The road to approved therapies and vaccinations is a slow one, and if companies are going to engage in shady behavior to push their drugs to market faster it'll only slow everything down when they're caught.

    Like this.

    Yes, I am and yes, I did in fact get tested and I came out negative.

    I just feel like everyone forgot that the common cold and even the regular flu still exists. I know the symptoms are very similar to covid but people have to stop being so paranoid about it. Not that you shouldn't take it seriously but I mean it's just a little ridiculous when you start feeling like you're in some post apocalyptic movie and people will look at you as if you're turning into a zombie because they simply sneezed or coughed. I mean no one acted this way about the normal influenza virus which kills people as well.

    I think it's just that this virus has been politicized so much. The politicians are using this virus to gain power and instill fear into people and telling them that if you vote for them everything will go back to normal because they "have a plan".
    I'd buy that for a dollar.

    Ya, no.

    I will continue to freak out anytime I possibly have something that is going to kill me in a real actual possible scenario.

    And yes during flu season everyone at work would lambast anyone who fucking showed up sick. People used to freak the fuck out during bad flu seasons all the time. We shut down schools and a lot of them all the time because of bad outbreaks.

    Well, I have never experienced any of that before covid so maybe it was different where you live but I know where I live in flu season no one was wearing masks, quarantining, shutting down schools or businesses. Life went on as usual.

    Yeah, same here.
    The flu is just an endurance trial here. Depending on the person, it's either minor or no, but typically gone in a day or so.

    Masks, no, but during bad flu seasons discouraging coworkers who are sick/coughing from coming into work isn't uncommon.

    I don't think Zan was implying any of the other stuff was "normal" either, but even in the US there are occasional school closures for bad flu outbreaks - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2725856/

    It's just that like...covid isn't the flu so life is decidedly abnormal right now and shit. You just have a cold? Cool, that's good that it's not more severe. But I don't know that (that you only have a cold), and the cold could compromise your or my immune systems and make us more susceptible to covid.

    what state you live in, denial?

    happens every year across the country.


    2019

    https://weather.com/health/cold-flu/...%20the%20virus.

    5 states are reporting "high" flu activity, according to the CDC.

    Two Alabama schools closed for the rest of the week because the flu wreaked havoc on staff and students.
    Two public school districts and one private school in northern Mississippi were closed Friday
    A North Carolina county's school district canceled classes for both students and staff on Friday
    Three Idaho school districts were forced to close because of the flu

    https://www.inverse.com/article/5282...tbreaks-states
    schools in at least 12 states across the United States have closed because so many students are calling in sick

    2018
    https://www.the74million.org/when-sc...ue-to-the-flu/

    at least 11 districts and nine scattered individual schools across 12 states that have closed for a full day or longer because of excessive absences and concerns about the virus. Thirty children have died, and the governor of Alabama has declared a state of emergency due to the flu.

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/01/26/healt...own/index.html

    The Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy in suburban Chicago is one of them. For the first time in its 30-year history, the Aurora school closed for almost a week due to the flu. On Friday, January 19 there were 25 students who stayed out of class due to flu-like symptoms. By Monday, 88 students were sick and 23% of the faculty were sick with flu-like symptoms, too.


    etc, etc, etc

    Based off of 2017 numbers, COVID would be the number 3 cause of death in the us right now. Meaning everything except cancer and heart disease has done less.

    To you accept that we shouldn’t worry about the deaths caused by anything except for heart disease and cancer?

    https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/n...r68_09-508.pdf

    Can we get off this disgusting myth that this is just like the flu?

    I work for a medical device manufacturing company and get audited like that all the time. The kind of thing they're talking about there is REALLY serious. Like, completely shut down the company because of fraud, safety violations, non-compliance to required industry standards, etc.... kind of serious. Traceability and audit trails (being able to see who did what, where, when why, and to what thing) are incredibly important as it shows you have control of your process, your people, your product, and that everything is properly documented. Without that, it's the equivalent of saying "because I said so" which does not fly even a little bit when it comes to the health and safety of the patients.

    Republican governor blames "increased testing" for the surge in cases in South Dakota, even though hospitals are reporting an increase the number of covid patients they are caring for.

    Because, again, one party in the US has no interest in taking this pandemic seriously, sadly.

    So, they are following Trump all the way to the grave, aren't they?
