Sticky Post
The original COVID-19 Outbreak thread has been closed but is still available as a read-only thread (sticky above). The original thread had become less and less about new information and more about petty bickering. The purpose of this new thread is to link or report new information as it comes out. Try not to go off course from the topic. Those of you who had been banned from the original thread feel free to participate in this new thread. Just stay on topic. Thank you.
-----------------
Edit - Andrus:
Bottom line is that moving forward we simply don't want any political bickering going on within this thread, and want to try to limit this thread to being as much about sharing Covid-19 information as possible.

If you want to discuss the political aspects of Covid-19 with other SR members, you can do so here (If you are not already registered there, you will be required to do so)...

Surprised it hasn't started yet. This should have happened weeks ago if not longer. At least we're making a lot of progress on the vaccine front to hopefully keep spread from India at a minimum.

Such a heartbreaking mess there. 300k new cases per day is just impossible to comprehend. Geez.
couple of models thru Univ of Wash and another ( i think UM ) say that the likely number is 5 to 10x higher.

Thats really hard to wrap your mind around, but in a country with such dense and relatively poor population, its probably closer to 1,000,000 per day. I just dont think they have the testing capacity to churn out those numbers.

And just like here early on, there is motivation ( politically ) to tamp down those "official" numbers.

Yeah, makes you wonder how bad it actually was in China. Never believed their numbers. Not even a little bit.

Our own numbers were at least 5x higher.

My colleagues in Bangalore are on strict lockdown for 2 weeks. They expect it’ll be extended. Though pandemics are rare, it is highlighting issues that can happen by depending too much on offshore teams for schedule dependent work. We’re having to pick up more of their responsibilities.

"A Kenyan doctor who became a vociferous opponent of the Covid-19 vaccine has succumbed to the virus, weeks after saying the jab was "totally unnecessary".
Dr Stephen Karanja, chairman of the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, advocated steam inhalation and hydroxychloroquine tablets.
He clashed with the Catholic church over the safety of the Covid jabs."

Supposedly next week we're going to find out in Jefferson parish if the St.Patricks day parade is going to roll on July 4th. Has anyone heard about that?

I figure it'll take us another year or two to start learning a lesson. We've got too many ignorant people running around.

Which is why Joe Rogan’s comments were so stupid. Covid severity is likely related to a number of factors - overall age and health aren’t the only drivers. And the main variants have shown to be worse for young adults than the earlier virus. Being young and fit isn’t enough to risk it.

Joe Rogans comments were stupid just because it was never about whether or not you beat the virus back and survive, its about you spreading it to those who can't.

Too many people are ignorant about the potential for long-term effects. It's especially terrible for young people to suffer from long-term effects.
