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)...

CDC's conclusion from that investigation: "This investigation adds to the body of evidence demonstrating that children of all ages are susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 infection and, contrary to early reports, might play an important role in transmission."


So much of what I have seen about the research on an alleged diminished capability of children to transmit the virus comes from several examples in Europe, early in the outbreak, where an infected student going to school didn't result in other infections. But I don't think any research physician or epidemiologist has even put forth a reasonable, physiological or virological explanation for why children would somehow be unlikely to transmit the virus as other humans do.
It's almost like the masks thing at the beginning where the CDC said they weren't needed but by June they reversed course claiming they were trying to save them for health care workers. So much of our economy revolves around kids being able to go to school or daycare the current justifications seem economic in nature instead of public health.

Not necessarily - when the adverse impacts of not being in school are weighed in the balance, I don't think unclear evidence on schools as vectors of transmission dictates caution. I think its fair to take the position that while some evidence of school transmission exits, there is support for the notion that it hasn't shown to be common. As a result, when cast against the adverse impact of not being in school, the unclear evidence of school-based transmission does not compel accepting that adverse impact.
Well similarly- perhaps even more so- we have more compelling evidence of transmission than we do of the adverse effects of not being in school
— obviously the data is both scant and hella divergent to the point that how you frame the question is going to land you on your answer

I’m seeing a lot of psychology in play (not the science we want)
There is significant pressure in schools (especially private schools) to have f2f classes - once you yield to that pressure, what is going to dissuade you?
The psychological impulse will be to gravitate to the information that supports their decision
By extension, not only suppressing the information that questions the decision but complicated the relationship to the people who keep being the ‘bad news’ up

The difference between the Southeast and the Northeast USA is alarming. I expected NYC to still have higher estimates than they're showing.
Northeast did a really good job shutting down and wearing masks but their reward is going to end up being a second wave because the rest of the country didn't take it seriously.

Like several in this thread have said, it is like a peeing section in a pool and highlights the reason this has always been a Federal issue.

Looks like Death Toll in Texas is starting to match the big spike in Covid cases this earlier this month. Almost 1000 Covid deaths in 3 days. Any way you slice it that is an enormous number.

The problem is they have not been debunked and I have shown two peer-reviewed studies worthy of consideration. If we are really going to try to fight COVID full force we should not diminish any possibilities based on pre-conceived ideas.

Just a heads up for anyone who cares. My sore throat did go away a couple of hours ago so I assume it was one of my regular ones. It's just strange that it lasted half of the day and not just the span of minutes it normally does when this happens. I'm going to have to stop sleeping with the AC on such a low temperature with the ceiling fan on high. Pretty sure that's what causes it in the first place.
I'm the same man, central on 68,window unit on 60 and fan on high. Throat feels like the Sahara every morning lol

Saw this in my feed. I guess some people just learn slower than others. Sounds like 177 people left the ship prior to knowing about it. Should end well.

Day 3 in Telluride. We’ve been out walking in the town of Mountain Village where were staying and several times down into Telluride. Mask usage is 100% inside buildings as mandated. And even walking outside mask usage is probably 75%+. Even seen people on trails wearing masks. I won’t wear it on the trail full time, but if we come up on people wearing them, we’ll put ours on until we pass. This area is bustling though.

Outside of a Diamond Princess reunion cruise, no ships should set sail until after a vaccine.
