COVIDiots

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

For anybody that forgot about it, here's the interactive map where you can get an estimate of the chances of somebody with covid being at any given gathering, by county.

Thanks! Added to How to know and avoid Corona Virus risks for quick reference.

The Co-op's Covid customer capacity is 25. The estimated chance that at least 1 COVID-19 positive individual will be present is 14%, actually higher since there are store staff, too. So, somewhere between 14% and 26%. Yuck, and Henderson County is fairly safe compared to the Midwest and Northern Plains.

You probably already checked - Salt Lake County, 25 people = 61%.

Yeah, we're actually in Davis county, but not much difference. Other than making sure to stay more than 6 feet away from people in the grocery, the chances of us going anywhere inside where there are 25 people is zero. Given the weather, we're not getting out much at all. But Sunday we're outta here.

Interesting map. Seems like Trump country is Covid country.

Go figure.
Not really.

Contraries, at the moment:

PINO states with comparatively low risk
The entire Southeast not yet counting NC & GA, WV

Biden states with comparatively high risk
Mich, MN, WI, IL, NV, NM

Three More Trumpworld Figures Test Positive for COVID-19 Amid Voter Fraud Crusade

... Corey Lewandowski, the Trump adviser who has been bringing bogus illegal voting and election fraud lawsuits, tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday, The New York Times and several other outlets reported.

Republican National Committee chief of staff Richard Walters has also contracted the virus, NBC reports. And a longtime GOP strategist and lobbyist, Jeff Miller, who was at the White House on Election Night, has also tested positive, sources told Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs.

Walters has not been at the White House recently, but an RNC spokesperson told The Washington Post that contact tracing had begun.

Any tracing efforts for Lewandowski would have to span multiple states and probably hundreds of people. He was at the White House on Election Night for a party that is now emerging as a possible superspreader event.

Several others at the party have since tested positive including White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Trump campaign legal aide David Bossie, White House political director Brian Jack, HUD Secretary Ben Carson, and several aides.

After the party, Lewandowski flew to Pennsylvania to lead the Trump campaign’s legal challenges against ballot-counting in the state. On Saturday, he appeared, mask free, alongside Rudy Giuliani and other Trump campaign figures at a bizarre event outside Four Seasons Total Landscaping in Philadelphia.

Days earlier, he yelled into a megaphone alongside Florida attorney Pam Bondi at a crowded press briefing outside a Philly ballot-counting site....
Aside: Why do people in the Air Force One conference room need to be told that they are "Aboard Air Force One"?

Anybody got a guess as to when trump will hold his next "I won this election by a lot" "don't let the virus run your life" rally? I will guess next Monday in Alaska. A good showing there will serve to spread the virus to nearly everyone in the state that can be reached by car. And trump can bleat his "we're turning the corner" lie about the virus as he flies away leaving them all in the cold.

South Dakota ER nurse recalls how dying coronavirus patients spend last minutes insisting virus isn't real

... . While many patients are "grateful for the care they receive" from nurses, some COVID-19 patients spend their last moments refusing to call family and friends because they're convinced they're going to be fine, Doering said. "Their last dying words are, 'This can't be happening. It's not real,'" Doering recalled. In some cases, patients even insist they have the flu or lung cancer to avoid acknowledging the coronavirus.

... South Dakota has the highest COVID-19 mortality rate of almost anywhere in the world — only North Dakota and the entire countries of Belgium and the Czech Republic rank higher. Without a mask mandate and with low rates of mask wearing, the Dakotas have seen coronavirus cases spike over the past few months.

North Dakota’s mortality is higher than any country’s rate

The US Midwest set a new record high COVID-19 mortality

US COVID-19 mortality likely to double by early December

If US states were countries, the mortality would be:

Well, I guess you can look on the bright side; at least those deniers to the end died believing trump won the election. Some may even have a headstone reading 'I AM NOT DEAD"

Michigan Gov. Whitmer slams Trump adviser who encouraged residents to 'rise up'

Treason and inciting riot charges should be contemplated, along with charging the Hoover Institution with abetting, and CA and any other states should cancel his MD license.

Yeah, but Scott Atlas' urging Michigan to "rise up" puts another spin on it that we probably don't want to consider.
