    Organizer of B.C. hospital protests, Kristen Nagle, recently claimed that you can't catch a virus

    The fired intensive-care nurse also suggested that polio and Spanish flu were not caused by viruses, and that rabies arises from malnourishment and mistreatment

    Pardon my sarcasm, but "we" should strike a deal with China.

            How were you able to get that? Do either of you have an immnuocompromised situation?

              • Florida added 2,448 deaths, according to Friday's report. Coronavirus casualties can take weeks, sometimes months, to enter official reports. The state Health Department continues to refuse to publish death tallies in each county.

                Another death record:Florida breaks COVID-19 deaths record fourth week in a row as infections slow down

                Missing data:How many people have died of COVID-19 in your Florida community? State won’t tell you

                Overall, Florida reported 100,249 new COVID-19 cases, down 22.4% from the previous week's tally of 129,202.

                The number of Floridians killed by COVID-19, 48,772, now eclipses the number of American soldiers killed by hostile forces during the Vietnam War, 47,434, as reported by the U.S. military.

                • My post with my weekly update of COVID numbers has not yet been approved by the reviewers but when it is you will see that the NJ replacement number is fluctuating around 1.0. So it appears that the latest peak has crested here.

                    and in the weirdness that is the programming that runs this board, when you put it up, it was approved, no problem. I read it yesterday afternoon.... somewhere in the interim it got the bounce (for no apparent reason)

                      I've come to believe we will never ever untangle all of the information surrounding this issue. Too many organizations reporting too many numbers with too many different definitions of what something is.

                      Lies, damned lies, and statistics.
                      You there, on the motorbike! Sell me one of your melons!

                        That last fact is truly stunning....... It makes such a powerful statement for anyone willing to listen.

                          LA (2848) has now passed NY(2840) as the second worst. MS (3045) is likely to pass NJ (3051) as early as tomorrow. MA (2669) in the 5th place is likely to be passed by AZ (2651), which has just passed RI. CT (2361) is now outside of worst ten at 11th.

                          • Share of people fully or partly vaccinated.

                            Canada 74.6%
                            France 73.3%
                            Italy 72.6%
                            UK 71.0%
                            Germany 65.9%
                            Japan 63.9%
                            USA 62.5%

                            We are still leading Japan 53.2% to 51.7% in the share of fully vaccinated. But that will also change soon.

                              It seems that Louisiana is #3 behind Mississippi and New Jersey according to these numbers.

                                It seems to do it sometimes when I do an edit.
