Covid-19 cases are rising. States are opening up anyway.

The uptick comes at a critical time: Americans are exhausted, but also perhaps better equipped than at any other point in the pandemic to turn the tide.

After several weeks at a plateau, Covid-19 cases in the United States are rising again, the clearest warning sign yet that the country could face another "avoidable" surge, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday.

The uptick comes at a critical time, when Americans are exhausted and desperate for a return to normalcy, but also perhaps better equipped than at any other point in the pandemic to turn the tide, thanks to increased vaccine supply.

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said at a media briefing that the most recent seven-day average of Covid-19 cases was about 57,000 cases per day, an increase of 7 percent from the previous week.

"We know from prior surges that if we don't control things now, there is a real potential for the epidemic curve to soar again," she said, adding that she remains "deeply concerned" about the trends.

We haven't even gotten the cases from Spring Break or Easter, yet.

We need a full lockdown, NOW.



Ok, other than DUmmies being in full on panic mode again there isn’t much to the thread. If you really want to read the panic by all means, row on over.

I brought that here to say this;

DUmmie, I truly hope you’re wrong. Honestly. I don’t like seeing anyone get sick. I don’t care if they’re white, black, brown, yellow, or even orange.

I don’t care if they’re young or old, mean or nice, Democrat or Republican.

I don’t care if they’ve followed all CDC guidelines or not. Wore a mask or not, stayed home or not. I don’t care if they’re vaccinated or not.

BUT, know this, IF a surge does come and people die due to that surge, make sure you place the blame squarely at the feet of Slow Joe Biden, where you know it rightly belongs. At that point Mr. Biden will become a mass murderer and must be impeached for his incompetence. You know I’m right and you have no defense of what I just wrote.

That is all.

OK, let's look at several DU-bogey-states to see what's happening there (I chose the states based on Progs' hate, not based on knowing the states' numbers trends):

Texas - https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/usa/texas/ , new cases numbers have been falling since around January 13th; new cases numbers are not rising in Texas; nor are daily deaths;

Florida - https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/usa/florida/ , new cases numbers have been falling since around January 7th; new cases numbers are not rising in Florida; nor are daily deaths (though there were spikes yesterday and the day before, probably due to reporting delays or "corrections" by bureaucrats);

South Dakota - https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/usa/south-dakota/ , new cases numbers started falling around November 12th, and have been basically flat since around January 22nd; new cases numbers are not rising in South Dakota; daily deaths have been falling since November 28th, and flat since around March 3rd.

Iowa - https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/usa/iowa/ , other than a 2 week mini-surge in mid February, new cases numbers have been falling since around November 14th; new cases numbers are not rising in Iowa; nor are daily deaths.

Howzabout a couple of ultra-blue, ultra shut-down states (again, I don't know the numbers until looking just now):

California - new cases numbers started falling around January 8th; new cases numbers are not rising in California; nor are daily deaths;

New York - new cases numbers started falling around January 8th and plateaued at a comparatively high level around February 14th; numbers have been up very slightly since March 17th, but not enough to know whether it's the start of a rise or just random variation; daily deaths started falling around February 12th, with numbers being up a little starting March 23, again, too early to discern whether it's an upward trend or random variation.

So, numbers are not rising in DU's most hated bogey-states. Nor are they rising in ultra-blue California. Why such similar outcome from such dissimilar state of shutdowns? The State of New York is faring much worse than the bogey-states or California. What is the State of New York doing wrong in its state of shutdown?

The DUmmie who posted this BS-bilge being OhioChick:

1. Is she so unknowing of urls that she didn't delete all the tracking crap from the url as she posted it?

2. How is Ohio doing, https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/usa/ohio/ (again, I didn't know until looking just now)? Daily new cases started falling around December 8th and went flat around February 25th. Ignoring a spike yesterday, new cases are not rising in Ohio. Daily deaths started falling around January 6th and don't seem to have risen.

The bottom line is that NBC cherry-picked a few states so as to peddle Panic Porn and OhioChick is so ignorant about even her own state that she lapped up NBC's Panic Porn bilge.

1. Mandated full lockdown will not happen

Wear a mask, social distance, and get vaccinated (if not already).

2. I realize that....

Expect a surge from hell within a few weeks from now.

When all the new variants arrive, which they will, we're really going to be screwed.

I've already done all of the above and am still sick.
The DUpipo think Trump could have kept Covid out of the country in the first place, if he'd only done enough. (In spite of the fact that the CCP and the WHO told bald-faced LIES about the transmissibility FOR MONTHS...) So, knowing everything we know now (which we didn't 15 months ago,) why can't Joe-Mentia keep the variants out????????

The MSM is pushing this crap because they are pushing for 100% compliance of the vaccination.

Because they’ll eat him alive if he closes the southern border. And he can’t close the airport travel like Trump did because, Trump.

then stay the **** home you stupid doezy ****.  Hide in your basement like your pResident does and demand the federal government go deeper into unrecoverable debt sending out endless "stimulus" (cough, cough UBI) checks to keep you stocked up on weed and cheetos.

We have often talked about the DUmmie's idea of utopia on this forum but I think we are really starting to see it now play out.  Lock yourself at home and use a weed delivery service to keep you comfortably numb as you "self quarantine" while binging on netflix and prattling on about how beijing biden is "crushing" it and is so much better than the bad orange man.

This "gift" from china has facilitated the socialist wet dream the left has been wanting for decades and now that it is within their grasp they aren't willing to let it go.
Biden is an illegitimate President.  Change my mind.

The variants are here and vaccines currently approved in the US are known to be effective against them. All this has been known since January, but evidently Star Moron OhioChick is ignorant of what she fears. She should be demanding that her state and local gooberment "health" officials explain why Ohio is doing so much less well in their vaccination program than are North and South Dakota! And why some 1.4 million vaccine doses in Ohio are sitting in storage rather than having been injected into people's arms ( https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#vaccinations )! But she's ignorant of that, too.

You got that chick.  You're sick in the head.  Lockdowns don't work and didn't.

OhioChick probably thought Texas and other states taking away their mask requirements would be "super-spreaders".  Hasn't happened, and the cases are only dropping.

When lockdowns were first implemented in March 2020, the goal was to flatten the curve – to give health care systems some time to prepare for the onslaught of COVID-19.

Although it has not happened by design, the US is moving toward a Sweden model.

Nonetheless, one is still likely to encounter rabid “COVID warriors” on social media, who think that interminable lockdowns will (somehow) significantly reduce the overall total deaths from COVID-19. But it increasingly seems that such a scenario is wishful thinking.

So, the DU'ers are just more “COVID warriors” fighting for dementia Joe.

How do lockdowns confer immunity?

Cuz, if they don't, all you're doing is destroying people's lives economically to delay their inevitable exposure.

 :hi5: My opinion, being unassociated with any medical or pharmaceutical field, is that summer lock-downs caused the December surge to be greater in magnitude than it should have been. In summer hospitals had plenty of capacity. In late December and January hospitals were full and some were overwhelmed. The lock-downs also delayed the US reaching herd immunity.

The Key Word that the dope idiot Liberal does not understand is "Cases". Cases are not the same as sick or dying. We WANT cases to go up so that we can achieve herd immunity. According to a recent report quoted on Armstrong and Getty a few days ago we already have over 50% national immunity. That's great.

As usual, the "science" crowd is accepting the exact OPPOSITE of science.

Never forget: The morality rate for the China Virus is 0.04%. I'll take that over the LA freeways.

The sheer stupidity of the woman in the democrat post is the real danger to America: Unhinged leftist  insanity.

BT: I am proud to say that I never bought into the fear, never obeyed a lockdown, never wear a mask (except for a rare one or two exceptions), never got sick, never stayed home from work. I go into stores without masks and generally handle my business without it escalating into a brouhaha

Having spent two weeks in the hospital with Covid and two months so far working to regain my pre-Covid endurance and strength, Covid has more unpleasant consequences than a miserable lonely death. I'd have taken a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine and two lost weekends (if the reactions were that extreme) over my experiences with Covid. Covid is not trivial and should not be trivialized.

True, the China Virus is not trivial and should not be trivialized. Of course, neither is the Flu, right? Just ask the families of the dead.
Quote: "CDC estimates that influenza has resulted in between 9 million – 45 million illnesses, between 140,000 – 810,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 – 61,000 deaths annually since 2010." - https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/index.html

It is OUR REACTION to the China Virus or the Flu that matters.
Despite those Flu numbers, which are horrific, numbers our society saw fit not to shut down a nation and destroy lives, jobs & families. No masks, no social distancing, no school closures, nothing.

That is my point, and that is what the deranged socialist pigs on the Left cannot grasp.  Especially when you consider the fact that the Left embraces infanticide; they don't give a damn about lives. It's all a farce with them.
