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!

Right. But to further discourage people seems bad.

So with deaths not going up with cases, it seems there's something we've missed. I think there were way way more cases back in Feb/March/April than we caught, so deaths were higher. The cases we're catching now are milder and there are less of them. We know how to better deal with this now as well.

That's my theory.

Everyone thinks deaths are 2 weeks behind cases because that's how it looked the first time. But we were way behind on the cases the last time and they seemed to spike a few weeks before deaths but actually, it was way before and they were way higher.

KDHE is installing these things in Curtis State Office Building; if it works, it is an interesting and elegant solution (hometown solution, too--LFK):

I personally feel this shit has been here much, much longer than is believed. There is talk of China knowing about this as far back as late summer of '19. We'll never know for sure because they'll never officially admit to anything like that.

I would guess January there was community spread. I don't know about December, but it's possible.

We are seeing deaths increase in states which have seen significant new case growth.

Not really.

Arizona has had some weird things with the numbers but it's not jumped the rails like it did in NY yet.

No, there are increases in deaths in those states. Florida, Texas and Arizona. haven't looked at California. I didn't say anything about comparing them to NY.

It makes sense that deaths would be low since older/at-risk people are taking precautions. So the leading edge of this second wave (or whatever you want to call it) is going to be a lot of young people.

The big question is do they ultimately end up infecting a lot more at-risk/older people, or can we get close to herd immunity with only the young/healthy?

But again - long term damage - no one knows how much, but it's definitely happening.

My stepdad always said "growing up they said the only problem with smoking is it would stunt your growth". Hopefully we don't wind up with a chunk of this wave saying "No one knew there could be long term damage" for the rest of their lives.

According to worldometers site, there haven't really been any meaningful increases in deaths yet.

This whole long term damage fear mongering both ways is just out of control. We don't know either way. It's pretty pointless to say at this point, we won't know for a while.
