How are you guys doing? I'm hardly able to breath these days. I hope everyone is well.

Thanks - Wyobrandx

I hope you have a quick recovery and that it doesn't stick around for too long in your body. Do you have an oximeter, and if so, what do your values look like?

Hang in there, man. Hoping for a speedy recovery. The only person I know that had it confirmed and hospitalized had a rough week or so but then recovered relatively quickly to be up moving, doing light chores, etc.

Keep us posted and get well!

Associated with or caused by? No evidence of the latter. 3 kids out of hundreds of thousands that have had COVID but the virus causes it? Not holding my breath for this to be conclusively confirmed.

SD has it right. Election year fear is driving decisions now.

Who the [#]f##k cares! We underate breathing. Breathing requires a good atmosphere! Lets thank god for what we got.

I'll tell you what though - we treat our atmosphere like a sewer. We should never do that. Breathing easy is nice. Theres a f##k[#] out there that can't breathe worth a damn. Theres also a afew that can.

Remember, this world is full of and composed of people. Without them, there's alot we couldn't do. Take a few minutes and give some time to the people that were left behind.

And remember, we can only assemble freely when we have all the resources we need. Our atmospheric intake (breath it in), our energy from plants, our need for water. We can grow when we have that. We can screw up alot more. And we do.

Regardless - the next best corner is the one that involves people face to face.

Has anybody seen the tool that lets you go state by state to see how infections, percentages of positive tests, deaths, etc. are evolving? Really cool to see, and weird also to see how very different results have been in different states.

The states hit hard early on are recovering, meanwhile the Bible Belt and other places are now getting nailed by it.

Dumb question, but is Florida considered Bible Belt? Either way, they're up an insane amount in new cases the past couple of weeks.

My wife and I are at our home in Florida, and I can tell you the reason for the spike is the complete disregard for wearing masks, or attempting to social distance. We tried to go over to Cocoa Beach to watch the SpaceX launch, and it was literally hundreds of thousands of people crammed into really packed places, most without masks and literally on top of each other. It looked like a spring break orgy but most everyone was clothed. We decided it would not be prudent for us to stick around so we just turned the car around and headed home.

We try to wear a mask in public, as much for other people's protection as our own, but I would say the majority of people in Florida just don't care and do what they want. Florida will be a test case for herd immunity - to see if that theory actually will work with COVID-19. Here's a pretty good site that tracks the daily numbers for each state. Florida is setting records.

The average age of infection in FL is plummeting. Meaning that healthy, young people are getting and building herd immunity.It's a good thing.

That's a bit too early to tell. Unlike something like measles or whooping cough, herd immunity may not truly be a thing with COVID, and having it re-spread could also lead to mutations. Obviously, just like regular flu, those mutations could be caught with the same vaccines as the ones we're developing, or they may not be.

Similarly, nothing says the mutations that stick (if there are any at all) will behave the same way and mostly target the elderly. The second wave of Spanish Flu hit young and healthy people too, wheras the first wave did not.

Welp, the NHL was all set to ramp up for an isolated playoffs in Vegas, and now there's a bunch of infected players in Florida (Tampa), and also Auston Matthews (plays for Toronto, but got infected in Arizona). Tampa Bay had to shut down their phase 2 practices because of it.

Definitely wonder if there'll be a playoffs after all... the way Texas, Florida, parts of California, and Arizona (6,000 cases in the last couple of days!) are getting hit now, maybe Fauci was right and there won't be sports at all this Fall.

Dammit.

Hell, Boulder County's become a hot spot too after a bunch of CU students on the Hill wouldn't be careful while partying. Colorado was down to almost no new infections, and then... ruined.

And a young woman in Lafayette just tested positive for Corona for the second time. She first tested positive at the end of April. Apparently she never got antibodies?

Plus 23 Clemson football players tested positive as well. We may not get a college football season.

Never mind what the hell MLB is doing. :roll:

If COVID doesn't ruin fall sports, politics will.
