As an economic stimulus the compulsory wearing of masks would be be far greater than the outcome of renewed closings because of the LACK of mask wearing creating an upsurge in infections.

Seniors, like me, who have self isolated and avoided going anywhere because of fear of infection by the "maskless" hordes would be more inclined to resume in person shopping and participation in the economy. 

It would also be great if everyone didn't view it as a mandate or force and just did it to get rid of this. This might be happening in other places but I'm not aware of it. 

 

It's annoying so many people are making this difficult.

Some interesting studies from Nature and Lancet with a bit of good news.

 

Only 1 in 5 of people under 40 that get Covid-19 ever show any symptoms at all.

 

A new study out of Switzerland indicates there is close to zero transmission from someone in a household that has Covid-19 to children under 10.

It's a law you and your passengers in a automobile wear a seatbelt. The country did not go cattywampus when that passed as they are now about masks.   Cry babies the lot of them!.

Funny. I remember back when they started putting seat belts in autos. For a while you didn't have to use them and a significant number of people really didn't like the idea of wearing them. Some felt that it made you trapped and if the car was on fire you were toast.

 

Of course the statistics were compelling and seat belts saved a lot more people than were killed by being trapped. Eventually people got used to it and eventually it also was made law requiring belts.

 

I think there is still an exception for antiques that don't have belts.

Just this week I saw a story - not this one - going around Facebook that IIRC was recent, and it was about apparently there being at least some hue and cry about the first seatbelt laws. 

 

I went looking for it and I saw this from before covid.

His claim of being in poor shape less than 48 hours, to include 'sores,' flies in the face of the general timeline for progression of the 'rona though...the bar becomes the easy target though if someone looks for an event to support a narrative and hopes nobody actually reads the story.

Not out of line with other studies where the index person, time, and date was known. About 30% get sick with a fever/chills in under 48 hours. Looks like he got a big dose since at his age only 20% or so even have noticeable symptoms. He got the test results 2 days later but just remained home for days until he could barely breath before checking in at the hospital. Good thing he was young and in good condition.

 

Still, the IFR for people that age is very small. Odds of someone that age that's infected has the disease as bad or worse is probably well under .1% and dying from it under .01%, possibly under .001%. At least at age 30.

 

OTOH, for people over 65 it's more like >2%. Even in nursing homes about 20% of the people that get it don't have symptoms while another 20% die. The rest are in between.

 

Strange bug.

Houston area running out of ICU beds and ventilators; may soon be forced to resort to triage protocols.

:lol: 

 

The surge in coronavirus cases has gotten so bad in Houston that two of the city's hospitals have begun transporting patients to other cities in Texas.

 

Harris Health Systems, which runs Ben Taub and LBJ hospitals, over the last 24 hours has transferred 33 patients, both COVID-19 and non COVID-19 patients, to facilities in Houston and in surrounding areas, and was in the process of transferring 15 more, according to spokesman Bryan McLeod.
