Despite the pandemic, a survey by The Ohio State University finds that 40% of Americans intend to celebrate Thanksgiving with groups of 10 or more people and that a third of respondents will not ask guests to wear masks. What do you think?

And, spending days and days indoors with family members, it is not going to make a difference if you wear a mask or not.

I'm just pissed to see the crowds without masks lately.
Why? They are not obviously working.
Because I don't think it's a lot to ask of people to practice social distancing, or to wear a mask. Thankfully many people are, but even while our numbers go up, the shops and restaurants remain crowded with people who aren't willing to do the minimum to help get this under control.

I'm disappointed.

It's fascinating to see somebody who professes such contempt for Trump and Republicans (well, slightly more than for the nation as a whole) bleating out the same idiotic crap that they've been spreading around.

Why is someone a senator who doesn't know the difference between a disease and a vaccine?
Quite. Rand Paul neatly ignores the fact that over a quarter million Americans don't get reinfected after "naturally acquiring" COVID-19 because the virus killed them in the past eight months. Also, many hundreds of thousands among the survivors are left with permanent damage to their lungs and brains.
I wish senator paul to test naturally acquired immunity to yellow fever, cholera, ebola and malaria...

It must be because all these tests run on machines that were financed by Soros and are operated by Spanish companies founded by South American dictators in Frankfurt / Germany.

Trump would rather play golf than engage in talks with other G20 leaders about international co-ordination of vaccine delivery...

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-11-22/ ... e/12908244
Leaders of the world's 20 biggest economies, including Prime Minister Scott Morrison, say they will pledge to pay for a fair distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, drugs and tests around the world so poorer countries are not left out, a draft G20 communique shows.

The European Union has called for $4.5 billion by the end of the year from the G20 to pay for COVID-19-fighting tools for poorer countries.

Absent from the discussion was US President Donald Trump, who departed the virtual summit to head for a Virginia golf course as vaccine discussions were underway.

Midwest Nurses Say Their Hospitals Are On The Verge Of Collapsing — And Leaders Aren’t Listening

Cheryl Rodarmel, the chief nurse at the Research Medical Center in Kansas City, Missouri, said she is not sure how much longer she can go on like this.

The 61-year-old has loved her job for all 42 years she has been a nurse. But now, she said, the relentless influx of COVID-19 patients who have deluged her wards has her worried that her hospital system will collapse, and most of the staff along with it due to burnout and contracting the virus themselves. Meanwhile, outside the hospital, too many of her fellow residents refuse to wear a mask or otherwise protect themselves and their communities from the virus, driving infection rates ever higher.


“Those in positions of power are still allowing this virus to run unchecked,” she said. “If we continue like this, we won't have the nurses, beds, or ability to care for everyone.”

Across Kansas and Missouri, as intensive care units fill to capacity and beyond with patients struggling to breathe, an increasingly alarmed chorus of medical professionals are echoing Rodarmel’s worries. This week, Kansas posted a seven-day record for new coronavirus cases. In nearly two days, 5,853 people tested positive and 60 others died. In the first two weeks of November, Missouri recorded more COVID cases — nearly 60,000 — than it did during any other month since the pandemic began. The state’s current positivity rate is a whopping 27%.

As Sean might say, it is definitely a people problem. But it is also a system problem. For a long, long time, the system in the US has fostered self-indulgent, selfish individualism, disguised as a virtue. This lie has been part of the "everybody can succeed and become a self-made millionaire" that bolster rapacious capitalism.

It is no surprise that your leader in these times of troubles embodies these "virtues" to a T...

So not supporting an action which itself lacks scientific evidence just because the Trump camp are saying something similar for totally the wrong reasons is idiotic? Well done. Who is the idiot here? It is not yours truly.

But that is the effect of mask wearing; it gives a false sense of security.

Latest daily figures for the US show over 192,000 new cases and over 2,000 new deaths.
2000 out of 330 million? Meh.

Well, better than nothing, I suppose.
470 000 deaths by March, 2021.
