NJ rate of transmission is up to 1.48. ~3 weeks ago it was around 0.7-0.8.

 

Rt.live has it at 0.97. No idea why the difference is so massive.

That last part is new to me. Guess the more you know.

I don't know the full context of the Nuremberg codes that resulted from these trials, so no doubt these "covid truthers" are taking something out of context or letting their imaginations run wild

Must not be “live”, I literally just watched it be announced on Murphy’s press conference. :p 

Is the 0.97 like a monthly average or is it daily? Mine is the daily

From https://rt.live/ They update daily. I actually wonder if Murphy's numbers are behind, but I am not sure. They have had different numbers throughout the pandemic, but the difference was never this stark.

She's not in trouble, Pelosi made a comment about how she doesn't trust her because she downplays how bad things are, basically she tried to cover for her boss while not outright lying. 

 

Edit:I guess she said the virus was widespread and set the moron off, lol. But she has been extremely cautious with her wording till now, maybe the Pelosi thing kinda got to her. 

Pelosi said what she said today, right? Birx' comments were yesterday. Birx has been getting flack for awhile now... I don't think what Pelosi said was a factor. I think she couldn't continue to carry water for Trump anymore because the facts are the facts.

I have no idea where that site is gathering info from. NJ has been well over 1 and climbing for several days. Friday was 1.35, Saturday was 1.38, yesterday was 1.49, today is 1.48.

The Rt climbed to 1.35 on Friday, the day Murphy made his remarks. The last time it was that high was April 7 — 115 days ago. New Jersey hit peak hospitalization April 14, when the Rt rose to 1.02.

They're gathering data from The COVID Tracking Project, which gathers data from NJ's websites, so I have no clue why the difference would be so large.

Me neither, but I’ve been watching/listening to Murphy’s briefings every time he’s had one (almost every day until he recently cut back) and that site barely matches what the actual rates have been here for July.

How the Pandemic Defeated America (The Atlantic)

Quote

How did it come to this? A virus a thousand times smaller than a dust mote has humbled and humiliated the planet’s most powerful nation. America has failed to protect its people, leaving them with illness and financial ruin. It has lost its status as a global leader. It has careened between inaction and ineptitude. The breadth and magnitude of its errors are difficult, in the moment, to truly fathom.

He didn't say this.  This was one of a series of sarcastic tweets by Winslow.

 

Seriously, regurgitating tweets like this as if tweeting something makes it real is just exacerbating the mass hypnotic spell of paranoia and angst that social media is casting on society.

Twitter and Facebook are two of the worse things to happen to social discourse since Cable News and Talk Radio.

Still pretty fucking bad that it's perfectly plausible that the president said that though.

So major parts of the north of England have been returned to lockdown and with the number of people travelling around the UK now it’s the summer holidays, I’m counting the days until we’re back to two months ago.
