2019-nCoV (Coronavirus)

It will be over if Biden wins because it will not be talked about or if it is the focus will change.

increase in numbers don’t mean shit, there is still a decline in deaths.
My guess is the focus will change to control. Biden has already gone on record stating he would do everything he could from an executive standpoint to make wearing face coverings mandatory when in public. I expect any vaccine to be mandatory as well for school children, universities and possibly mass transit.

Anyone know why a person tested positive does not receive immediate medication? For most any other illness, they always claim early detection and treatment is the key. With my brother, it was 15 days after detection before he received meds and hospitalization. He was almost dead. My parents were well in their way to the grave before being admitted and then received medication. Why? What is the reason for this? The dangers of hydroxychloroquine? Please... that stuff been around forever and there has never been a great fear in its use before this thing. Why do we insist on letting people slide towards the grave so far before trying to bring them back?

Let’s just imagine for a minute that all these doctors putting out videos are right. What if when first detected, the virus is treated with hydroxy and zinc and no one has to go to the hospital? How big of an impact would this thing have? Not a heck of a lot...

Absolutely brock. In my opinion, they've set the use standard so that it's only used as a last resort for one of three reasons.

1. They want to drastically limit the number of patients using it to cover up that they couldn't possibly ever meet an adequate demand. "If we don't have enough and never will then limit it to only the sickest patients"

2. More conspiracyish. They have no intention of locating a viable existing treatment that will negate the billions that could be made from a new drug or "vaccine".

3. The odds of it working is slim and a hail marry attempt.


In other news the FDA pulled it's emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine on June 15th and added emergency use authorization for remdisivir which Gilliead pharmaceuticals has set the price at $520 per vial with a total 5 day treatment costing $3,120 to private insurance... Sure make #2 above seem way less conspiracyish doesn't it.

Pretty concerned about dad right now. We haven’t heard anything from his doctor today. My cousin looked at his chart and said they are running tests for widespread clots. He has not had any hydroxychloroquine, you know the stuff CNN says is useless on the virus but kills patients due to clots. Regardless, very worrisome right now.

Masks are not the answer. Why? Not enough people believe they are the answer. Just drove from Ohio to SD to MT and WY and back. In bigger cities I saw more wearing masks. In SD and MT saw nearly zero masks being worn. Des Moines and Iowa City is where we stayed going out and coming back. Less than 50% mask usage. Further west maybe 10-30% mask wearing. We only wore them IF we had to go somewhere people were more heavily populated. No need in your vehicle sight seeing or pull off to take pics. Went in a couple gift shops/visitor centers and wore them. Jackson Hole, WY was busy. We wore masks. Probably 50-75% of people had them there in tshirts shop. Less on the streets. It was silly. We did our best to not spend much time in these type places. Carried hand sanitizer with us as well. Did a lot of hand and cell phone cleaning.

When the majority of tourists aren't practicing this stuff. . . .it isn't going to work.
