[ Politics ] Open Question : Who can I blame for the Coronavirus?
Trump DID NOT control state health care system. He can authorize certain measure at fed level, but NOT at the state level, particularly of democrat states.
Trump CANNOT stop the democrats from innuendo & incite & ALLOWED terrorists Antifa/BLM from 3 months of massive protest gathering.
Trump did not invent coronavirus, nor he is a epidemiologist that can oversight this thing. It was delegated to Fauci et al. Masks or no Masks? Dr Fauci and Dr Birx, have been issuing guild line since January, with on and off masking & vague instructions. Even Trump said he is not a doctor, and advice people to follow CDC guild lines.
China and oil sheiks are able to manipulate the USA because of the USA’s extreme dependence on chinese factory workers and oil.
Time to refresh your memory.
We always knew cases would rise as we ended the lockdowns and reopened. Remember the graphic below?
Lockdowns were never meant to be long-term. They were meant to prevent our hospitals from being overwhelmed and to give us time to build up hospital capacity, ventilators, PPE and start research on a treatment and vaccine.
Now, we are re-opening, and seeing cases go up, just like was predicted in the blue part of the graph below.
A few reasons.
1) Case rate jumps are before deaths. There is a time lag involved. Unfortunately, expect more deaths in a few weeks.
2) Case rate spike is economy reopening and testing available to know people have it and allow contact tracing if possible. Much higher number of positives of not as sick people.
3) We do now have treatments to help people recover, and the facilities to treat people.
4) Possibly is the less aggressive strain of Covid-19. There are two slightly different versions. The one from Europe is worse than the one from China. (look up type L vs type S if interested)
5) More young people affected. People getting together in groups are now more young people, so more get infected but are able to recover.
Just to keep up with the latest information:
If keeping up with information and there are new reports available, there are asymptomatic (infected with little to no medical symptoms), pre-symptomatic (infected with little to no medical symptoms NOW but in a few days get much worse, and sick people really showing symptoms. It seems that the pre-symptomatic are the main problem, those spreading the disease before they get very sick. The asymptomatic who don’t get sick seem to not infect many people, if any at all. The sick people are found and isolated. The pre-symptomatic can infect 15 to 25 people around them, carrying high levels of virus, but not yet really sick.
That means wear a mask to protect other people because you could be a spreader of the disease and not know it.
[ Politics ] Open Question : Why are so many red states seeing coronavirus spikes right now?
Red States, or Blue, several weeks of sheltering actually has weakened peoples’ immune systems. Our bodies need exposure to germs and bacteria in order to to maintain a healthy immunity. And now with increased testing, they are finding many unknown numbers of people testing positive for Corona Virus, with anti-bodies for it. These are the people that have been out and about, and who have an immunity to COVID-19, having been exposed to it. They are asymptomatic, and not sick. This is what “herd immunity” is all about. It is the Media that is reporting these people as “cases,” but the vast majority of them are not sick.
[ Politics ] Open Question : The coronavirus spikes are ALL due to the liberal riots and looting. NOTHING ELSE!?
As mentioned in the answer by @Daniil, you can find the full list here.
I have gone through the list, wondering if I did fit one of the exemptions. I do not.
In short, you can enter without quarantine or self isolation if you come to the UK to work in a restricted number of jobs or when you transport needed supplies or people who are going to work in essential jobs.
The list is very precise and detailed, including, among others, the drivers and staff of the Channel tunnel trains, people arriving to work for growers of food plants (but not other plants,) and people who repair BBC broadcasting facilities.
Tourists, relatives of residents and girlfriends of citizens are not included.
When traveling to the UK during the current Coronavirus pandemic, I read there was a compulsory 14-day quarantine.
- Who is exempt from this quarantine?
