    Should I be scared of getting Covid since on Saturday my neighbor threw a party and there were multiple people coming from and back? She lives on the second and I on the first, so to get to hers you have to past mine. I'm a bit concerned about this to be honest, what should I do? Get myself tested just in case or not worry?

    Unless you went there yourself there should be no problem but if you’re that worried I would say get the test especially if you’re feeling the symptoms.

    I mean you're wearing a mask to protect your face...and people use protection when they're trying not to have kids...and people can't have kids with the same sex*...

    *actually might not be true, I've heard women can get pregnant from the bone marrow of other women. But that's the line for the sake of this joke.

    If you didn't go there yourself, there is absolute no reason for you to worry.
    But if it will help you feel better, go and get some desinfectant to clean your door handle and such. Just check the label to make sure it is virucidal.

    Oh no, I didn't go there at all. I'm not a party person. Yeah, I don't think I'm feeling any symptoms, so I think I'm fine. Just paranoid.

    Yeah, I didn't go, I don't care for parties. Yeah, maybe I could do that disinfectant, I do plan to mop the floor in the hallway anyway too, so that would help too.

    Thanks both for your responses! I really appreciate it. I just don't know how the virus spreads and worried that it might be in the air in the hallway just waiting for its next victim.

    This video is not really about Covid, but it relates to it while explaining the history of why things are the way there are currently in this country. Man, Biden has a lot of work on his days to fix this, I'm not even sure how to have it done besides teaching everyone to treat everyone the same as everyone else, which is something I do already, I treat everyone equally no matter what status, race, etc. But seems not everyone is like me in that regard. I think also the faulty "race science" we had in the past that is finally debunked still lingers and probably why black people still get treated different from their white counterparts when it comes to the healthcare system. Anyways, here's the video, it is very informative and explains things a bit clearer, though I need to do more research to understand more of the situation:



    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    I understand Hawaii, but don't get how Vermont isn't an hotspot too, when it's completely surrounded by hotspots, doesn't make much sense to me. I guess people are more aware over there and actually watch themselves regarding the pandemic.

    Keep in mind doctors and nurses have been subjecting themselves to potentially contracting the virus likely in part from treating and caring for patients.

    Election turnouts aside, people have gotten way too complacent. Time for the governors to issue more, since the feds won't do it while Trump is still in office.

    Day 1397: "More people may die."

    Spoiler:
    More than 1 in 400 Americans tested positive for the coronavirus last week. The United States surpassed 11 million reported cases Sunday – one week after hitting the 10 million mark – and the number of COVID-19 deaths now stands at more than 246,000. The seven-day average of new daily cases is more than 140,000, with 49 states trending upward. Meanwhile, governors and mayors are implementing new restrictions to slow the spread with Chicago issuing a new stay-at-home advisory, Philadelphia announcing strict new rules, New Mexico going into a two-week lockdown, North Dakota imposing a new mask mandate, New Jersey limiting gatherings, and California putting more than 94% of its population in its most restrictive reopening tier.

    Trump has not attended a coronavirus task force meeting in “at least five months.” Since Election Day, Trump has reportedly ceased to actively manage the pandemic, which has killed at least 244,000 Americans, infected at least 10.9 million, and slowed the country’s economy. Instead, Trump has repeatedly and falsely claimed the election was rigged against him. (Washington Post)
    Trump’s coronavirus adviser called for Michiganders to “rise up” against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s new COVID-19 restrictions. After Whitmer announced Sunday a three-week pause on indoor dining, Dr. Scott Atlas tweeted: “The only way this stops is if people rise up. You get what you accept.” Whitmer denounced Atlas’ call to action, saying it is “incredibly reckless.” Dr. Anthony Fauci added that he “totally disagrees” with Atlas. (ABC News / Politico / New York Times)
    Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine candidates is 94.5% effective, according to the early findings from a 30,000-subject trial that is still under way. The news comes a week after a similar shot developed by Pfizer and BioNTech said their candidate was more than 90% effective in an interim analysis. The two companies could have enough vaccine for about 25 to 30 million people in the U.S. in December, with the first doses going to the highest risk groups. Moderna’s vaccine was co-developed with Dr. Anthony Fauci’s institute. Trump, meanwhile, seeking to take credit for the vaccine news, tweeted: “For those great ‘historians’, please remember that these great discoveries, which will end the China Plague, all took place on my watch!” (New York Times / Washington Post / Wall Street Journal / Politico / Bloomberg / Politico / The Guardian)
    Biden called the vaccine news “really encouraging” but warned “more people may die” if the Trump administration doesn’t cooperate and start the transition process. “We are going into a very dark winter,” Biden said. “If we have to wait until January 20th to start that planning, it puts us behind, over a month and a half,” Biden continued. Dr. Anthony Fauci, meanwhile, said it is “obvious” that the Trump administration’s refusal to begin the presidential transition is not good from a public health perspective and could stall the rollout of potential vaccines. “Of course it would be better if we could start working with” Biden’s team, adding that the “virus is not going to stop and call a time out while things change. The virus is just going to keep going. The process is just going to keep going.” (The Guardian / NPR / Politico / NBC News / Politico / Associated Press / CNN)

    From today's What the Fuck Just Happened Today:



    The leaders of three major medical associations urged Trump to share “all critical information related to COVID-19” with the incoming Biden administration “as soon as possible” in order to “save countless lives.” The CEOs of the American Hospital Association, the American Medical Association, and the American Nurses Association urged the Trump administration to share “real-time data and information on the supply of therapeutics, testing supplies, personal protective equipment, ventilators, hospital bed capacity […] the capacity of the Strategic National Stockpile, the assets from Operation Warp Speed, and plans for dissemination of therapeutics and vaccines […] so that there is no lapse in our ability to care for patients.” Biden, meanwhile, noted that getting a coronavirus vaccine to more than 300 million Americans is a “huge, huge, huge undertaking” that would be further complicated by a continued delay in the presidential transition. Over the past 14 days, coronavirus cases have increased in all 50 states plus Washington, D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam. There has also been a 100% or more increase in confirmed cases over 14 days in Vermont, Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Iowa, Ohio, Colorado, Michigan, Nebraska, Kansas, Pennsylvania, and New York. The seven-day average of new deaths in the U.S., meanwhile, eclipsed the Aug. 2 peak of 1,150. And, more than 73,000 people are currently hospitalized with COVID-19 as of Monday – a new record. Dr. Anthony Fauci, meanwhile, called for the nation to adopt “a uniform approach” to the coronavirus pandemic, rather than the current “disjointed” state-by-state response.

    Day 1399: "We did it right."

    Spoiler:
    More than 3 million people in the United States – about 1% of the population – have active coronavirus infections and are potentially contagious, according to a team of infectious-disease experts tracking the pandemic. The estimate does not include an approximately equal number of latent infections – the people who were infected in recent days but can’t pass it on yet because it is still incubating. On Monday, at least 1,707 new COVID-19 deaths were reported – about one American every minute – and by Wednesday, the U.S. had recorded it’s 250,000 death with a record 76,000 people hospitalized with the coronavirus. The White House coronavirus task force, meanwhile, stated in it’s weekly report that there is “now aggressive, unrelenting, expanding broad community spread across the country, reaching most counties, without evidence of improvement but rather, further deterioration.” (Washington Post / CNN / The Guardian / NBC News / CNBC / Wall Street Journal)Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine is reportedly 95% effective with no serious side effects. The company said it planned to apply for emergency approval from the Food and Drug Administration “within days.” Pfizer said it could have up to 50 million doses available by the end of the year, but only about half of the supply will go to the United States this year – or enough for about 12.5 million people. Moderna said this week that an early analysis of its vaccine showed it was nearly 95% effective. (New York Times / Washington Post)

    As for me, these are all shortcomings of democracy and a good standard of living. Take a look at China. Even 20 years ago, they produced only fakes of branded things and lived in poverty, and now this country is developing at an amazing pace. We may laugh at communism, but this model of governance in China avoided the monstrous rate of COVID spreading across the country. Compare with our statistics. We draw conclusions. Whichever we choose, nothing will change dramatically, since our people simply will not accept a tough and authoritarian president who, if necessary, will be able to limit our freedoms for the common good in the near future.
