    Man...I was about to say that sounds like a great plan until I saw that it was ONLY for dine-in, not to-go. What a fuckin bunch of tossers, why would they do this. I keep seeing people dining outside and while it's less dangerous and shit like...holy shit why are people being asked to risk their lives to eat/serve food for the economy.

    At the end of the day, we're all sacrifices at the alter of the capitalist death cult.

    It's not about caring or not if old people die from it as let's face it that's what all old people do, fact of life. That's what we all will do in the end, in the meantime we should not forget there is a life for now to be loved and lived.

    Meanwhile back in unmuzzled Sweden...

    Good news young people! Maybe you won't die from the virus but there is a real fear that you will get to enjoy Parkinson's Disease instead.

    Oh good, more longterm health impacts for folks who survive the virus that will start manifesting decades later because people think there's some nonsense about "herd immunity" and that this is basically the seasonal flu.

    The future is sure gonna be fun.

No goalposts were shifted. Because of your "there can be only one (peak)" ...quirk... and because you're incapable of admitting you're wrong, you're attacking me for 1.5 months over your own mistake. Give up already.

    Let's roll with your 8% number, wherever you pulled it from. When it was declining, you said 2.6% over a week is not statistically demonstrative. When it was rising, less than 2% per week is even more not statistically demonstrative, according to yourself. Busted.

    And if you only remove India but not USA+Brazil, your chart will show decline. You're employing disingenuous lying tactics which makes you a bad person, but you're not a stupid person - that's why you were dodging my question.

    It's hilarious how many studies are now done. Viral infections never got this much attention to detail. It's only natural that we discover a ton of stuff now.
    As the article says: any viral infection can cause damage to the brain, we do not know yet whether C19 is special in that regard.

    Of course you will have a significant rise in all kinds of symptoms when millions of people are affected.

    Man, Fauci seems like he's getting pretty fed up with idiots like Rand Paul constantly lying and intentionally misconstruing data for political purposes.

    Seriously, fuck Rand Paul.

    Small offtopic comment: you use JPG format for photos. For charts containing few colors and sharp edges you use PNG, better quality that way.


    P.S. Next time I'm here, I'll make a respectful post about this silly feud, not for PhaelixWW's case but for others.

    Seems we will pass 32 M mark of reported cases any minute now.
    I also noticed that India and the world seemed to have gone down a tiny bit in reported cases the last couple of days.

    Unfortunately, it seems the explanation is that testing has slightly decreased in India, while the positive rate has gone up a bit, so it's due to a lack of testing (which could be temporary due to the monsoon).

    One thing - he should have been pissed, publicly, long time ago. But better late than never.

    Don’t worry India is opening all the way soon. Totally won’t cause any issues.

    Hmm to be honest: I have heard the "cross immune response" argument before and I agree that it might explain the high %age of asymptomatic/mild cases.
    We do not have antibodies against SARS-CoV-2, so our immune system cannot prevent an infection altogether but our T-Cells recognize infected cells and kill them off. Depending on the quality of said recognition, the Virus may not get much further than an initial foothold.

    IIRC, this has been demonstrated in a study using old blood samples from pre-C19 years.

    Nevertheless, him basically saying "measures do not matter" is flat out wrong. Tons of countries have demonstrated that they do make a difference.

    Sure but when he all had dial-up, I doubt many people would have liked large png images.

    Umm, speaking of covid vaccine research and development: "Study of over 50,000 volunteers in China shows Coronavac safety"

    resumo em 3 tópicos
    Pesquisa com 50.027 voluntários na China demonstra que a vacina Coronavac não apresentou reações adversas significativas
    Entre as pessoas com mais de 60 anos (422 voluntários), os resultados apontaram 97% de eficácia
    No Brasil a vacina foi aplicada em quase 5,6 mil voluntários sem nenhum registro de reação adversa grave

    (english) Instituto Butantan conducts clinical trials of the coronavirus vaccine in phase 3 in Brazil, carried out on almost 6,000 volunteers.
    Research with 50,027 volunteers in China shows that the Coronavac vaccine did not show significant adverse reactions
    Among people over 60 (422 volunteers), the results showed 97% effectiveness
    In Brazil, the vaccine was applied to almost 5,600 volunteers with no record of serious adverse reaction
    https://www.saopaulo.sp.gov.br/notic...-da-coronavac/

    So, it seems that we have a success. Good news is, China is willing to supply MASSIVE amounts of doses to Africa/Asia/Latin America (where i live, yay). Bad news is... well, i dont see the Chinese being so keen on giving the vaccine to the US.
    Forgive my english, as i'm not a native speaker

    Given the quality of the last lot of medical equipment China shipped out early in the pandemic and the CCP's propensity to fudge any and all numbers, I'd be very dubious about taking anything out of China until it was independently verified.
