We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

If there's no morbidity or mortality benefit it's more of a factoid than something of clinical significance.
7% to 67% (statistical variance) less chance to become infected is significant for O positive verses blood type A. I believe they are studying Blood type A and the link to blood clots and Covid as well. Have they said there is no link to morbidity? I’ll research that next and look as well, but would love to read what you’ve seen.

Article on risk factors. T2D is looking to be a big one. No surprise, blood sugar is key to so many chronic diseases.
People w/ T2DM are much more likely to have multiple comorbidities. That's why they need routine checkups for their kidneys, cardiovascular system, eyes, and for neuropathy.

Well he is absolutely correct but I also realize it will be extremely hard to do but doesn't mean he isn't correct.

Sure it is. This thing is spread by humans. Therefore, reducing the proximity to other humans will reduce the number of cases.

And, therefore, if we hadn't take the mitigation efforts we have, it would have been worse, as you agreed.

If it’s working, is it not supposed to get better?

we will never know now that they are opening back up...


how do you expect things to get better when people are running around spreading it?

If you get an immediate spike after opening, it wasn't because of the opening. You're gonna have to wait and see 2/3 weeks out whats going on. So far Georgia hasn't had a spike to my knowledge. Florida hasn't either. So fingers crossed.

It's better in the sense that had we done nothing the numbers would probably be 10 times worse than they are considering shit like this..

And there it is. 72 Wisconsinites have tested positive for coronavirus after attending a "large gathering," which *just so happened* to be around the same time as the April 24th rally at the Wisconsin state Capitol.

The problems we have are impatience and the fact that there is basically no ending, no credits just a TBD, and frankly a good amount of people don't have the stomach for it.

Is there currently evidence that’s the case here? Seriously asking.

By that I mean slowly opening up in certain areas fucking everything up.

And that's the other problem because we didn't really do a full on lockdown just kind of a half ass lockdown, there were still idiots running around spreading it.

Now there will just be more of those people out and about with others out.

One positive and a good way IMO, to look at it now is that it's taking alot more tests to find a positive. So we're ramping testing up and finding more of the infections. If we can keep reducing that below 5%, we'll be well on our way out of this hopefully.

This is an excellent YT series on Covid:

This one I marked to start at the blood type discussion.

Seems like both Florida and Georgia are doing fine.

So what gives?
