I've often wondered where you're from TB. Am I correct it stands for Tampa Bay?

 

As I've reported for months, everyone's perception of Covid response is very much so impacted on their personal experience where they live. I can tell you that mine's been effected by living in Southern California, where everyone has been fully masked for almost a year now.  You're hard pressed to find anyone not wearing one, with the exception of when they are out walking alone on a trail somewhere, and even then more than half of the people you run into are wearing them.  There is NO WAY you're getting into a California store without a mask...and that's been true since April 2020.

 

Is that not your experience in Tampa?

Yes but I hardly seen anyone wearing them properly. Most of the time people like to do the mouth cover nose exposed I have seen the most...

Hello everyone, and I had the opportunity to visit Cassandra at Buffalo Children's today. As mentioned she is off the Ecmo machine and doing most of the work. It will take some time for her to heal. S

I have stayed away from this forum for a long time, and most know my politics...tonight was important for our country. Trump was up to it so far. Fantastic job.

Not here TB. We have the exact opposite. Everyone is masked, and if you aren't you'll get a dirty stare from someone, for sure.  And with all of that going on, we have tons of cases, etc.

Been telling that to liberals for years about the left coast.  

 

It's a utopian dream land.  

 

 

Fyi.....100s of thousands have done just that from NYC and CA alone.  

 

Joe Rogan

Oracle 

Elon Musk 

Ben Shapiro 

 

Just off the top of my head....them and their business and jobs.....out.

 

 

Here is the safe place you crave

You would never, ever see that in California.  In fact, I am honestly amazed.  I haven't seen a store look like that in almost a year.  And yet.....as I'm sure you know, we have tons and tons of cases.

Best run state in America.

 

 

Tell that schmuck "reporter" to start asking the correct questions.  He should try that once in a while.  To get the answers we've been lacking for let's see.....going on Dayyyyyyyy......320? of 15 days to slow the spread now?

 

And lol "on a massive scale."  Go you know what yourself you friggin moron.  One of those questions should be "what has made your state so successful as compared to California, where you can't do anything without permission from the Governor?"

There is a lot of fatigue from folks given this has gone on for almost a year now.  I live in Indiana, and was driving back from Kentucky a month ago.  I stopped to get gas and was going to run in to the convenience store to get a drink.  There were a dozen folks in there; one was wearing a mask and not doing so correctly.  

 

This virus is highly contagious, and the variants may be even more so.  It doesn't take much of a screw up for infection to occur.

Yeah I trust Florida's numbers like I would trust Trump with a teenage girl.

 

Tell me why Florida fired and arrested data scientist Rebekah Jones? Just because she refused to manipulate COVID-19 numbers on the Department of Health's website?

 

Gullible AF.

Oh please - you can give two schitts about anyone else but your self. 
 

Move to Florida if you’re not happy. 

 

Y'all keep saying this, but are you aware that COVID deaths per 100,000 are about 1/2 of what they are in more enlightened states like NY and NJ.  And FL has a large elderly population.

 

NJ is first at 246.  NY is 226, MA is 213 rounding out the top 3.

 

Meanwhile, FL is 125 and Texas at 130.

 

The best is Vermont at 28.

FL is also #24 in cases per 100,000. Not like they're way worse as is often depicted.

Does density play a role in the transmission of this virus?

 

Just curious.

If I learned anything about crises, it’s that politicians and their media sycophants never let facts get in the way of a good narrative..  

 

at some point I really hope someone figures out why the US is one of the worst covid countries in the world. I’ve seen masks and distancing everywhere for almost a year.

Do you not think Miami, Tampa Bay, Pensacola, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio are not  dense?

 

Just curious.

Nothing is DENSE in Texas, btw.

 

 

 

And regarding Florida - bring in an independent forensic auditor to review the data - I don't believe ONE THING coming out of that state.  A simple google search should help you out.

Almost as if Government mandates are useless.  

 

The locality and the people can handle it.

 

Maybe letting it circulate among the young did speed up herd immunity.

 

But who am I to play with mother nature and think keeping everyone home indefinitely away from all germs and bacteria may just have been a terrible idea.

Thanks for the link. Interesting.

 

Density probably plays a facor.

 

New York's stats are under investigation as well. 

 

Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Tampa, and Miami are all in the top 100.

I do not trust the NY States Nursing Home data but with that said - I don't think Cuomo acted maliciously ON PURPOSE to F over our elderly. Very unfortunate situation that will haunt Cuomo for the rest of his life.

 

With that said - based on your arguments that you expound here every day - didn't Cuomo make the right decision in your opinion?  Like who are you "to play with Mother Nature?"

It is amazing how any real dialogue on here immediately spins out of control.  Once again, out here in California, everyone wears masks, and as correctly as would be expected unless you sewed it to their face...and yet Los Angeles County is awash with both cases, and fatalities. So short of locking everything down completely, we appear to be fighting a losing battle....or at least not winning one any time soon.

It's just easier to make believe that the Pandemic Response team would have solved all our problems.  Because they did such a great job preparing us...
