Guardian:


Totally Under Control identifies numerous errors and Trump-sown chaos, but focuses in particular on arguably America’s most pivotal mistake: the failure to introduce widespread testing in February and March, resulting in a “missing six weeks” of fumbling toward crisis without the ability to map its spread. The numerous failures – a botched CDC test, unwillingness to quickly scrap the compromised test part and proceed anyway, FDA red tape which required labs to send applications by mail, among many other roadblocks – squandered the critical window for containing the virus.

There is some kind of push to report on the vaccine progress by Oct 22:
“It’s a group of nerdy virologists sitting around,” said Paul Offit, a University of Pennsylvania vaccine expert who sits on the panel and co-developed the rotavirus shot. “You don’t see many situation comedies about a group of fun-loving virologists and epidemiologists. For a reason.”

Nevertheless, the FDA is preparing for tens of thousands of people to tune into the panel’s initial meeting — a departure from past practice for similar advisory committees attended largely in person by DC-area experts and academics. Such meetings normally attract an online audience of just 100 to 1,500 people, an FDA spokesperson said.

No single vaccine is expected to be ready for review by Oct. 22. But the advisory group is on standby to discuss the merits of each shot as drugmakers file applications for FDA authorization or approval — making the panel a prominent player in the final crucial months of the United States’ vaccine push.

“We don’t work for the government nor do we work for the industry. We’re just supposed to come there and look at data,” said Offit.

A GIF showing the progress of the pandemic in the US by cases per capita, sorted by 'red' states and 'blue' states. It begins in late June, when the seriousness of the situation was well understood, and after there was no longer any reasonable doubt about the measures people needed to take to slow the virus. The red states, with their 'fuck you and your masks and your lockdowns' approach come out on top, but not in a good way. Link to tweet.

That was exciting watching Florida slowly creep up on Arizona and then pass it at the end. They don't call him "Ron DeathSantis" for nothing!

After Trump's Covid-19 diagnosis, anti-Asian tweets and conspiracies rose 85%: report
Anti-Asian bigotry and conspiracy theories spiked on Twitter immediately following President Donald Trump's Covid-19 diagnosis this month, new findings reveal.

The report, released last week by the Anti-Defamation League, a civil rights group, examined Twitter activity surrounding Trump's diagnosis on Oct. 2. Researchers found an 85 percent increase in anti-Asian rhetoric and conspiracy theories on the platform in the 12 hours following the announcement, many blaming China.

The surge in bigoted tweets also occurred shortly after Trump said the pandemic is "China's fault" during the first presidential debate and further referred to the virus as the "China plague."
Asian Americans have been weathering increased hostility since the beginning of the pandemic. The reporting forum Stop AAPI Hate collected reports of 2,583 hate incidents directed at Asian Americans from March 19 to Aug. 5, during the pandemic. Almost 800 of the reports said anti-Chinese rhetoric was used. What's more, previous research suggests that the use of terms like "China virus" and "kung flu," particularly by conservative outlets, has already seeped into U.S. perceptions of Asian Americans.

While anti-Asian bias had been in steady decline for over a decade, the trend reversed in days after a significant uptick in discriminatory coronavirus speech, according to a study published in September. On March 9 alone, there was an 800 percent increase in such rhetoric among conservative media outlets. The language led to an increased subconscious belief that Asian Americans are "perpetual foreigners," researchers said.

"Progress against bias is generally stable," Eli Michaels, a researcher on that study, has said previously. "But this particular rhetoric, which associates a racial group with a global pandemic, has particularly pernicious effects."

Rep. Grace Meng, D-N.Y., the main sponsor of a House resolution that called on public officials to denounce any anti-Asian sentiment, said she herself had been targeted with a slew of racist voicemails after the legislation was passed in September. In one message, a caller said she looked "like a Chinese virus, you fat slob." And she said another claimed that the harmful rhetoric is "not racist, it's the truth. Filthy people."

Don't forget we've been informed that racism is very unpopular in the US, so there.

Not without issues..

I tend to sympathize with the right's gripe that racism has steadily declined, and that whites don't deserve to be singled out for being particularly racist.

Where they err is to insist that the less racist attitudes of their children and grandchildren have translated neatly into equal opportunities for all. They clearly haven't.

Yes, I can accept that a definite majority of Americans, even Republicans, are not consciously racist, and that many other parts of the world have higher levels on average.. But, as you say, that in itself does not change the systemic racism which leads to entrenched disadvantage. Voter suppression is also real, and impacts your non-white population disproportionally, and is a deliberate tactic of at least part of the Republican machine.

Not forgetting that there is a small but significant number of virulently racist whites, who are armed, violent and dangerous.

County not doing much about outdoor gatherings. Bars have strict rules and no sports event audiences except high school.

"Lancaster County reported 142 new cases of COVID-19 on Saturday, according to the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department.

The county's total number of cases is now 8,054. The number of deaths remains at 35."

It's open here. Everything is a recommendation only. I tried to take the kids to the park today but they were having a Trump rally. I hate people. I don't want to, but the park...really, just fuck you man.
