An altered state
I must say this thread has been allowed to venture into some political discussion which is a good thing, IMO. For the most part if has been reasonable and rational, devoid of personal attacks. So good on the board.

Also, good on the mods for allowing some debate on this. Can’t be easy for them to decide when the line is crossed and have allowed considerable back and forth on this thread. A big thanks to the mods!👏🏿

Question, do mods discuss where the lines are and work together? Or is it more an individual prerogative?

0.83M shots yesterday so total up to 304.7 with the 7 day rolling average at 1.07M. 81.8% of shots administered is the national average, 51.8% of population with 1+ dose (66.7% of the adult population), 42.5% of population fully vaccinated.

So far, 172 million Americans have received at least one dose of a vaccine. At least 141 million people have completed a vaccination regimen.

14,201 positives reported yesterday compared to 17,817 week over week. 7-day rolling average is at 14,019.

Fatality was 452 compared to 401 yesterday and 511 week over week, 7-day rolling fatality at 409.

Hospitalizations reported 7 day rolling average is 16,532 compared to one week ago 19,829 down 16.6%.

Hospital admissions reported 7 day rolling average is 2,229 compared to one week ago 2,704 down 17.6%.

So my middle school child had an awards ceremony yesterday at the school. I would say about 75 people there, you were allowed two adults with your child so room was 2/3 adults and 1/3 middle schoolers. So walk in the school and principals are in the lobby and they immediately tell us masking is optional (this is a public school). So in the room, there was only ONE adult that wore a mask (a normal looking women in our 40's). Four kids had masks on. I was actually pretty shocked.

0.93M shots yesterday so total up to 305.6 with the 7 day rolling average at 1.14M. 82% of shots administered is the national average, 51.9% of population with 1+ dose (66.9% of the adult population), 42.6% of population fully vaccinated.

So far, 172 million Americans have received at least one dose of a vaccine. At least 142 million people have completed a vaccination regimen.

14,880 positives reported yesterday compared to 18,244 week over week. 7-day rolling average is at 13,536.

Fatality was 424 compared to 452 yesterday and 603 week over week, 7-day rolling fatality at 383.

Hospitalizations reported 7 day rolling average is 16,142 compared to one week ago 19,354 down 16.6%.

Hospital admissions reported 7 day rolling average is 2,238 compared to one week ago 2,567 down 12.8%.

By State Cases: Note that Florida, Kansas, and Alaska are only reporting periodically and not reporting today.
Texas - 1,797
California - 1,086
New York - 821
Washington - 713
Missouri - 687

Breaking news from CBS this morning. To be clear, very rare but higher than expected.


CDC plans "emergency meeting" on rare heart inflammation following COVID-19 vaccines
Yep, it's an emergency!

241 total cases / 130,000,000 vaccines = 0.00000185 or 0.000185% of those vaccinated with Pfizer or Moderna have had an issue and of the 241 total cases 200 have fully recovered while 41 cases are on-going.

You can pretty much expect that vaccine requests will drop to near zero. Nice strategy if they wanted that outcome.

I think it has to do with data coming out of Israel regarding young males being vaccinated and experiencing higher rates of myocarditis plus Germany recommending that younger people do not get vaccine for the same reason.

And those 15 to 30 getting myocarditis after being vaccinated at rates 4-5 times the background rate. That's a hell of a lot more of an emergency than what caused them to stop the J&J vaccine.

I've pointed out again and again, that for young, healthy people, we are arguing which really small probability is lower.

To me - makes no difference - get vaccinated or not - result will be the same. No problems in the overwhelming number of cases.

If people ACTUALLY want to try to predict which is the "safer" bet - more power to them...

but one the major issues is there is no data on how many 'healthy' kids (or adults) under let's say 30 years have gotten seriously sick, had continuing complications or died. so without having that data delineated out versus the percent now which we know was probably almost all with some serious pre-conditions, we cannot make a good evaluation for ourself as a parent or young adult.

I was mocking everything about this announcement and I think you missed one of my points. The stupidity of the government to be running advertisements for people to get vaccinated and at the same time announcing an "emergency meeting". The CBS headline was the actual meeting announcement. Here it is with a link:

June 18, 2021 emergency meeting is a virtual meeting.
Meeting time, 11am – 5pm EST (times subject to change).
No registration is required.


For those that want to see the agenda, which you can get at the prior link, but here is a direct link to the agenda:

Meetings like this are routine for any project, but when you actually have a go/no go condition that you are evaluating there is no purpose telling your customer anything until you've made a decision. Telling them what you are evaluating will cause them to shut down every time and getting restarted without a major change is almost impossible...and you sure as hell don't announce this on June 10th that you aren't going to meet on the subject until June 18th!! What in the world are they thinking...oh, never mind...

0.8M shots yesterday so total up to 306.5 with the 7 day rolling average at 1.05M. 82% of shots administered is the national average, 52.0% of population with 1+ dose (67.0% of the adult population), 42.8% of population fully vaccinated.

So far, 173 million Americans have received at least one dose of a vaccine. At least 142 million people have completed a vaccination regimen.

16,145 positives reported yesterday compared to 19,088 week over week. 7-day rolling average is at 15,143.

Fatality was 421 compared to 424 yesterday and 556 week over week, 7-day rolling fatality at 407.

Hospitalizations reported 7 day rolling average is 15,717 compared to one week ago 18,868 down 16.7%.

Hospital admissions reported 7 day rolling average is 2,167 compared to one week ago 2,511 down 13.7%.

So must have been a huge amount of back data filled in yesterday as even though week over week was down by 3000+ cases per day the 7 day rolling increases by over a 1000 cases per day meaning 10,000+ cases were back added. To a lesser extent, also occurred with the fatality numbers which bumped back up over 400.

But if they don’t get vaccinated they still may not get Covid so there would be no risk. That seems like better odds than getting the vaccine.

@Cletus11 confused by your comments, both positives and deaths were lower than the week over week, so how would there be an increase yesterday in the rolling avg? Thanks again for the daily update!

Most people don't calculate probabilities or even attempt to account for them in decision-making. They simply act without thought or as they have been instructed. I bet over half of the people vaccinating their children have no idea of the myocarditis risk or the COVID risk for children. They are just doing as they are told, not even a cursory thought of should they. After all, CNN hasn't told them not to do it. Also, many of those people would have a very emotional reaction if you even attempted to explain an abbreviated summary of the risks according to publicly accessible data.

But they’ll be ready to sue if something happens to their kid from the vaccine. God bless America.

Cases are going up again in the U.K. The India ( Delta ) variant now comprises 91% of active cases.
It is significantly more infectious than the U.K. variant. It presents like a regular cold, with no loss of smell or taste.
Obviously a concern for the US, as we have tended to run about 3 weeks behind them.

Our music is infectious.
And your first hit, "Covid Conniption", will certainly have greater distribution than, "Rockin' Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu"

In China's Latest Outbreak, Doctors Say the Infected Get Sicker, Faster​

As the delta variant of the coronavirus spreads in southeastern China, doctors say they are finding that the symptoms are different and more dangerous than those they saw when the initial version of the virus started spreading in late 2019 in the central city of Wuhan.
Patients are becoming sicker, and their conditions are worsening much more quickly, doctors told state-run television Thursday and Friday. Four-fifths of symptomatic cases developed fevers, they said, although it was not clear how that compared with earlier cases. The virus concentrations that are detected in their bodies climb to levels higher than previously seen and then decline only slowly, the doctors said.
Up to 12% of patients become severely or critically ill within three to four days of the onset of symptoms, said Guan Xiangdong, director of critical care medicine at Sun Yat-sen University in the city of Guangzhou, where the outbreak has been centered. In the past, the proportion had been 2% or 3%, although occasionally up to 10%, he said.

Doctors in Britain and Brazil have reported similar trends with the variants that circulated in those countries, but the severity of those variants has not yet been confirmed.
The testimonies from China are the latest indication of the dangers posed by delta, which the World Health Organization last month labeled a “variant of concern.” First identified this spring in India, where it was blamed for widespread suffering and death, delta has since become the dominant variant in Britain, where doctors suggest that it is more contagious and may infect some people who have received only one of two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.
China has uniquely detailed data, however, because it has essentially universal testing in the vicinity of outbreaks, allowing officials to gather detailed information on the extent of cases.
Delta’s spread in southeastern China focuses more attention on the effectiveness of China’s self-made vaccines. Chinese authorities have not indicated how many of the new infections have occurred in people who had been vaccinated. In some other countries where Chinese-made vaccines are in wide use, including the Seychelles and Mongolia, infections among vaccinated people are rising, although few patients have reportedly developed serious illness.
Nearby Shenzhen had a handful of cases last week of the alpha variant, which first emerged in Britain.
As some other parts of the world still struggle to acquire and administer large numbers of coronavirus tests, southeastern China has used its local production of scarce chemicals to conduct testing on a remarkable scale. Authorities said that they had conducted 32 million tests in Guangzhou, which has 18 million people, and 10 million in the adjacent city of Foshan, which has 7 million.
Guangzhou has also isolated and quarantined tens of thousands of residents who had been anywhere near those infected. The testing and quarantine appear to have slowed but not stopped the outbreak. China’s National Health Commission announced Friday that nine new cases had been found in Guangzhou the previous day.
“The epidemic is not over yet, and the risk of virus transmission still exists,” said Chen Bin, deputy director of the Guangzhou Municipal Health Commission.

1.2M shots yesterday so total up to 309.3 with the 7 day rolling average at 1.1M. 82% of shots administered is the national average, 52.4% of population with 1+ dose (67.4% of the adult population), 43.4% of population fully vaccinated.

So far, 174 million Americans have received at least one dose of a vaccine. At least 144 million people have completed a vaccination regimen.

5,285 positives reported yesterday compared to 11,448 week over week. 7-day rolling average is at 13,304.

Fatality was 308 compared to 100 yesterday and 224 week over week, 7-day rolling fatality at 371.

Hospitalizations reported 7 day rolling average is 14,683 compared to one week ago 17,906 down 18.0%.

Hospital admissions reported 7 day rolling average is 2,059 compared to one week ago 2,372 down 13.2%.

A lot of states obviously not reporting or only partially reporting on Sunday's now hence the ultra low numbers. As more states goto not every day reporting, the numbers are going to get harder to read on a day to day basis. Good thing is that the hospitalizations continue to go down and we should hit under 2000 daily hospital admissions this week for the first time.

Another interesting note this weekend I saw a marked decrease in mask wearing. Over memorial day weekend when I went into the mini-mart it was me and one other person who did NOT have masks on (every other person that walked in store still had a mask), this weekend literally nobody had masks on accept the workers. Walking down the street in the little town where we get coffee, zero people wearing masks for the first time ever. The coffee shop actually had put back their tables inside for the first time since the pandemic started. Only time I ever saw a mask was one person who had a gaiter on and put it on when they walked inside and then took off when they walked out the door. Also went to a restaurant where they were NOT seating every other table (even though I still think they are supposed to in some fashion) and the waitresses had NO masks. So you can tell that people are starting to take them off and get back to more normal.

Agree that more are maskless though in my trip through Columbia MD yesterday I saw 3 different people driving in their cars with masks on and no one else in the car as well as getting yelled at by someone who had a mask on as well as all of their kids having masks on, because I did not. We were outside at a public park while she did this... I just laughed at her

Columbia MD will have people wearing masks for years to come. These are the same people that have no issue with the town gas stations being 25+ cents more expensive than any other.

Agree, they fight like crazy to keep Wawa out of there and all I can think is how much better their lives would be with it...lol
