That article is the fakest shit I've ever seen. It sounds like it was written by a third grader who just watched a Magic School Bus episode on the cardiovascular system.

Unfortunately, these people are beyond convincing. I have a few family members who just simply don't care, regardless of the statistics or personal anecdotes you share with them. This pandemic has brought out the worst (and occasionally best) in people.

 I mean we know some people were intellectual stunted but corona has shown that many are dumbasses.

This represents one of the biggest threats our country needs to address. The regulation and possible removal of harmful disinformation and misinformation across social media platforms. Unfortunately many Americans don't have the science or medical background to distinguish between factual reliable health guidance and politically twisted garbage. This applies not only to covid but obviously other events that are transpiring now.

Aches, pains and a high grade fever(104).

that said, a fever that high is rare and was reported to VAERS. 

104? That’s absolutely insane, I’d be outraged. That’s dangerous. Worst flu I had I got to 104. Certainly not touching that vaccine.

Surely we'd be seeing doctors, nurses, and other people whose occupations have required wearing a mask prior to covid dropping dead from lung cancer left and right. 

Anyway, there's a solution to any mask concerns.  Go get the vaccine so things get under control more quickly and we can get rid of the mask mandates.  But I have this strange suspicion that there is a lot of overlap between anti-mask and anti-vax people.

That's exactly the issue. The Venn Diagram comparing anti-maskers and anti-vaxxers is a perfect circle.

The way the US has responded to this pandemic wouldn't be credible for some satire sit-com like Veep. It's been an avalanche of fail from day one. What HASN'T been totally screwed? 

Just crossed 400K deaths on Worldometers as we have the worst per capita death toll in the Western Hemisphere, and among major countries globally beaten by only the UK and Italy. Just so much winning1!!q11!111!! And it's just like the flu1!1!!!!11

Actually your last 3 sentences represent the biggest threat to our country IMO.

Yeah explain doctors who wear masks all day long, oh wise one.

I didn't click on the link, but there's plenty out there on how re using the same mask is not good.  Should be washed or disposed of regularly or will breed bacteria.

I think it is common sense to have multiple masks, most people wear different ones daily. This is no different than wearing the same clothes every day which people don't do.

Getting tired of giving a platform for the silly nonsense.  My natural instinct isn't to rush to muzzle people, but disinformation is a problem.  If you don't engage, then there is no chance of changing someone's mind.  If you challenge it, then at least there's a small opening.  Obviously the twitters and facebooks of the world are grappling with this on an infinitely larger scale.

Most of the people saying stupid shit have no ambition of ever learning. They want to spread misinformation because they are incapable of anything else.

If you're referring to censorship I would acknowledge a careful line needs to be walked.

The Norway story will get the anti-vax crowd going.

There may need to be some rethinking on whether to give it to very frail nursing home residents.  The thing is, IF what sounds like fairly typical vaccine side effects were enough to push some people off the cliff, what do you think covid would have done to them?

IHME updated with 566k deaths by May 1.  Daily deaths drop below 1000 after mid-March and down to slightly over 200 per day at the end of April.  IHME has had trouble modeling the downside of the curve in the past, but obviously there's a difference this time with more and more vaccinations.  Let's hope the numbers come down that fast.

I wouldn't go down to 200 per day, but could we get down to 1000 by say May? I think so. Maybe even 500 or less during the summer. If the vaccine can be distributed much quicker then less.

Great, down to a 4/27/11's worth (give or take a hundred) of deaths per day and that'll be great progress.

This whole thing has really made weather seem a lot less awe-inspiring (that combined with the extended period of atmospheric suckitude in the central CONUS).
