If all deaths are recorded, one can examine yearly deaths, say over a period of ten years, and evaluate in ballparks what the death reality is.

Come this summer, if children are out and about, I suspect news reporting will exhibit the severity of affected children.
===============

A class war over social distancing? New data suggests otherwise.

One of the uglier tricks employed by those pushing to reopen the
country as fast as possible --- regardless of the consequences --- is
to create the impression that social distancing restrictions have
unleashed a widespread populist uprising that's rolling across the
land.

As MSNBC's Chris Hayes noted, conservative media voices are posing as
champions of working people by telling them it's safe for them to
return to work, in a tone of "faux populist ire."


The insinuation is that elites in the "laptop class" can insist on
maintaining restrictions, because their digitally-plugged-in
livelihoods are largely undisturbed by those restrictions. They are
blissfully out of touch with the suffering of working people chafing
to get back to real-world jobs.
...
...
1. By 78 percent to 22 percent, Americans believe it is "necessary"
for people in their communities to stay at home as much as possible.

2. Fifty-eight percent of Americans overall say current restrictions
on businesses are "appropriate," vs. only 21 percent who say they are
"too restrictive."

3. What about wearing masks, which is supposed to be prompting the
latest culture war? This war doesn't really exist, either.

By 80 percent to 20 percent, Americans overall say it's "necessary"
for people in their communities to wear a mask when coming close to
others.
====================

Loud speech can leave coronavirus in air for up to 14 minutes - study


As Israelis are notoriously loud, it is perhaps in their own interest
to continue wearing masks to stop the spread of the virus and "lower
the curve."

Tiny particles escaping from a person's mouth when they speak loudly
--- which may contain the coronavirus --- can stay in the air from
eight up to as much as 14 minutes, a study has found.

The study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of
Sciences of the United States of America.

The results emphasize the importance of wearing medical masks amid the
coronavirus pandemic.
=======================

Kidney damage seen in one-third of COVID-19 patients studied in new report
.
More than a third of patients treated for coronavirus infections in
New York's largest hospital system showed signs of serious kidney
damage, according to a new study.

Reuters reported that the study from a team at Northwell Health, the
state's largest health care provider, found that 36.6 percent of all
patients treated in the hospital system for COVID-19 showed signs of
"acute kidney injury," resulting in 14.3 percent of that segment of
patients requiring dialysis treatments.

"We found in the first 5,449 patients admitted, 36.6 percent developed
acute kidney injury," the study's co-author, Dr. Kenar Jhaveri, told
Reuters.

Jhaveri cautioned that the study does not suggest that COVID-19
specifically targets the kidneys; rather, she said, the high rate of
kidney injuries is a sign of the seriousness of a patient's condition.

High value: volvolugnut's compiled numbers, your thoughts on the science of this virus

High value: how you're doing, what you're doing, personal Covid-19 experiences having it or avoiding it

Medium value: your thought that include limited politics

Low value: frequent posts of copy/paste news that include politics. Phainein7, I'm looking at you. This is your warning. Everybody gets one warning.

These gaps can be used for political advantage. In at least one state,
Virginia, senior officials are blending the results of two different
types of coronavirus test in order to report a more favorable result
to the public. This harms the integrity of the data they use to make
decisions, reassure residents, and justify reopening their economies.
I just checked Worldometer test data for yesterday. Of states and two territories, the average total number of tests per million population was 32,124. Puerto Rico was lowest at 3845. Second lowest was Idaho with 18,301.

Rhode Island was highest state at 92,435 tests per million. Second highest state was New York at 64,713. I was surprised North Dakota was third highest with 64,227 test per million.

Virginia results were near the low end with 21,098 tests per million.

More statistics on US states and COVID-19 growth rates. My raw information is from Worldometer. Any errors or misrepresentations are my own.

These tables show all available US states and territories and the COVID-19 data for the last 5 days. I have sorted the states alphabetically and added growth rates for last several days for all states with ranking of each day. Of course, this information changes daily. I have presented the table in two parts because of the screen shot, but it is actually one table in Excel.

Again, results change daily.
State growth rates for May 14, 2020. All information is based on reported information and actual results may be different.

For your information, the top 5 states or territories yesterday in growth rate (the worst containment) are: Arkansas (0.151) with 4366 cases, Minnesota (0.148) with 13,435 cases, Mississippi (0.117) with 10,483 cases, Oklahoma (0.108) with 4962 cases, and Louisiana (0.108) with 33,489 cases. States in Bold have reopened to various levels.

Worldometer https://www.worldometers.info/coronavir ... rus-cases/ has started to add state curve information to their website.

A column on the right shows the current growth rate divided by the 5 day moving average. Yesterday, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alaska, and Michigan were over 2.00. Alaska has only 387 cases.

My calculated growth rate for USA is 0.0265 for yesterday, up sharply from previous day of 0.0213. This is not population or case number weighted.

I'm not sure if every state is doing this but we just had an update....starting tomorrow if anyone here where we live, and I live in Raton NM, is seen outside of their home without a mask will be fined by the State Police! I am all for wearing mask in the general public anywhere,but in your own yard, come on this is BS at the highest level.They can't even manage to make everyone wear them in the public and they think everyone will follow this guideline here, I think not!!!

The world is now our prison? Just think of all the junk we are breathing back in what the lungs naturally expel. More laws more control.

Kind of scary to watch a CA Gym owner showing a Police Officer the sanitizer he was using in his business. Quite a few years ago CA wanted to outlaw black cars in the name of Carbon Footprint. Also read that collecting rain water was regulated somewhere. Now you are farced into wearing a mask in the name of protecting your health and well being. Don't worry, regulating the amount of water you can drink to protect your health is next.

Does the police have a COVID air analyzer to tell them which days are bad and which are good so they can enforce the mask? Maybe someone can come up with the Atmospheric Processor we saw in the first Alien movie. Better yet how about coming up with a method to inject into the engine some chemicals that will remain after combustion that will kill the COVID. As we drive everywhere we are cleansing the air of COVID!

Just covering the basis on the last one in case abscate comes up with the solution. Don't want to miss out on the Royalties :roll:.

Remember , you wear a mask to protect others, not yourself.
