    Hey everyone,

    Politicizing is not allowed. We realize it's difficult to separate Covid from politics in this discussion, but ...

    If you are going to post about 1 or 1 million people attending a rally, a church event, etc, put on by God knows who, make sure your post indicates how the content of that post relates to Covid19 and isn't just about politics or political figures.

    From Tricia's post at the beginning of each of these threads:


    NO MATTER HOW FRUSTRATED YOU FEEL, HOW GRATEFUL YOU FEEL OR HOW YOU FEEL WITH ANY OF THE COMMENTS COMING FROM THE WHITEHOUSE OR THEIR ADMINISTRATION DO NOT PUT IT ON THIS THREAD. DO NOT PUT TOGETHER A POST THAT IS OBVIOUSLY A POLITICAL STATEMENT AND THEN TRY AND SAY IT IS NOT.

    This post lands at random.

    Address the post and NOT the poster.

    Snarky, rude and personalizing posts that disrespect or denigrate another member get removed and may result in a permanent Thread Reply Ban or a board Time Out.

    I really want to know why I am not seeing ONE media report on contact tracing efforts in states and municipalities. How it's being done, stats or who is doing and how many are employed, what are criteria? Why isn't the media covering this? Or have I just missed it.

    This is the ONE ONE ONE thing I want to read about... but crickets???

    From your link also,

    5/5
    Spectre of death
    In just five months, the Covid-19 death toll has overtaken the number of people who die annually from malaria, one of the most deadly infectious diseases. The death rate averages out to 78,000 per month, compared with 64,000 AIDS-related deaths and 36,000 malaria deaths, according to 2018 figures from the World Health Organization.

    Global deaths: This is how COVID-19 compares to other diseases

    This compares it to all deaths.

    This graphic uses data from Our World in Data to provide context with the total number of worldwide daily deaths. It also outlines how many people who die each day from specific causes.

    Worldwide deaths by cause

    Nearly 150,000 people die per day worldwide, based on the latest comprehensive research published in 2017. Which diseases are the most deadly, and how many lives do they take per day?

    Here’s how many people die each day on average, sorted by cause:

    [​IMG]
    Cardiovascular diseases, or diseases of the heart and blood vessels, are the leading cause of death. However, their prominence is not reflected in our perceptions of death nor in the media.

    DH will be 72 in October. Nothing particularly sexy about the shaggy hair :oops: He tried a pandemic beard for a couple of weeks and decided to shave when I told him that he looked homeless :p I'm not fond of the grunge look.

    If my FB feed from this weekend was any indication, I am completely alone in keeping my family home and wearing masks when we venture out. My feed was full of photos (no masks) from group gatherings, graduation parties, birthday celebrations at bars, and even a youth travel baseball tournament complete with multi-teams from multi-cities playing multi-day games and celebrating wins/mourning losses in group restaurant outings. Side note: my friend's son's team made it to the championship, so...yay?

    We (meaning my family) are doing basically nothing and wear masks when we go out to the grocery, etc. I haven't seen my now almost 5 month old niece since she was born in February. Looking at my FB feed this weekend made me feel like I'm neurotic and crazy. From the looks of it, everyone else in my social group is living their lives and I feel like bat-**** bonkers Rapunzel in her self-imposed tower.

    You are not bonkers. The kind of behavior you describe is the reason covid is going through the roof in many states. People decided that everything is back to normal. It's not.

    I feel the same way - but if it is any consolation - the teens in my area are catching it like crazy because they aren't wearing masks or social distancing - their instagram feeds show it all. They are part of the uptick in Florida I am certain - in my neighborhood alone - 14 were exposed apparently at the beach - their parents are furious of course.

    Yes, of course they are catching it. And since they live at home, they can pass it on to mom and dad, or worse, to grandma and grandpa.

    They cannot apply because they are purposely ineligible for the stimulus.
