So old school bubonic plague may be getting loose on the Chinese/Mongolian border area.
Plague is still around, IIRC: a few Americans catch it every year. It's just not a big deal since it can be treated/cured if caught in time.

Time to see how the campus students are taking it.
Except for the inevitable outliers, I don't think there'll be any deaths. They'll be severely ill; May need hospitalization/aid, but they won't die.

I just hope they won't be stupid and spread it intentionally or not by not taking basic precautions, like washing their hands.

Another inconvenient truth getting smothered by the Media overlords: virus spikes in States like AZ and CA are from Mexicans with dual citizenship LPRs, and other documents hopping border.
"but muh drumpf rally"


It has links to a New York Times article pointing out that this was going on...in May. Before lying became more advantageous than telling the truth.

So we've got some more useless optics games going on in Britain at the moment. We're "squeezing the brakes" due to a rise in cases which seem to be mostly concentrated in the northern areas (which, oddly enough, have a large Muslim population. And these measures have come in on the day just before Eid. Funny that). God only knows how this will prevent cases because the lockdowns did fuck all to stop the spread. I do however find it interesting that this is not a national lockdown, and the local lockdowns actually seem to have a timetable before they're rolled back. It's just more political theatre to make our government seem like they are in control of the situation. Meanwhile, Westminster is charging headfirst into "wear masks" territory, which I perceive as them trying to give a placebo to a panicked populace.

what's it going to take to get it through people's thick skulls that nothing is going to "Save" them from this virus and that one way or another nature IS going to have the last word? Either our immune systems evolve to achive individual/herd immunity or we die. Those are the only two options. All these placebo measures are doing is prolonging the inevitable at best and is doing absolutely nothing while causing social collapse in the meantime at worst. People are waiting for that magic shot, but can anyone seriously tell me they expect a vaccine rushed out this quickly to not be riddled with problems?

I expect the 'vaccines' will be highly profitable from 2022 onward after many nations enforce their adoption and the initial "at-cost" deals run out. I predict they will be less reliable than flu vaccines, but failing to comply will result in firing, expulsion, and criminal charges in many jurisdictions. With PREP Act protection in the United States and similar deals emerging elsewhere, the legal liabilities will be nationalized while the profits remain private.

If 'a few unfortunate, non-representative individuals' get poisoned in the rush to market, oh well, it was for the Greater Good.

Jesus now were at nearly 20 million cases and more than half a million deaths

I think we'll find the death count is severely exaggerated at least in America. Journalist already caught one facility in Florida trying to put down a man as a covid death even when the cause of death was a motorcycle accident.

normally I'm very pro-vaccine heck sometimes I'm mandatory vaccine in some instances. Polio, smallpox, etc. Covid is not one of those kinds of diseases and this is not one of those instances.

If you look at the number of cases in the US, and the deaths, and not look at the general US population. One would think there is a problem, then you look at the population of the US and then look at the number of cases and deaths and it is miniscule
Especially when you compare it to the economic damage us freaking out has caused. Sigh I swear politicans must have a mental disorder that compels them to act in a crisis even if doing so will make things worse

It's a election year.

One half is completely dedicated to causing as much damage to the country as possible and blame the other half.

And the other half is to worried about being blamed for any deaths that they aren't pushing back against the clearly bad policys in the hope of looking like they really really care about people and won't be tarred and feathered by the people that don't care about reality and will tar and feather them anyway.

It has become impossible for them to come together as Americans. One side made literally everything political and now the other side has to defend everything as political. Neither side can compromise because one side will declare it a triumph over their enemy and the other will be chastised for their defeat.

It's a bad situation when a pandemic is a chance to score political points instead of a time to come together, but here we are...
