~*Official #COVID-19 Thread of Doom*~


Recommended Posts

Well in my neck of the woods we have been hearing a lot more helicopters flying around during the daytime. My mom brought it up with some friends and it turns out that Helicopter rentals/rides are way up. With the Canadian boarder closed up for travel, people are bypassing it by flying into Buffalo this way and renting a car to travel elsewhere. We are never going to get things under control if shit like this isn’t clamped down. I was in downtown Toronto on Monday for work and are in lockdown, but about a third of the folks coming off the subway were without a mask and security didn’t do anything. 
 

I'm tired of this shit and peoples ignorance. Now if I could get a good fucking sleep I would feel a lot better

Wait what. The border is closed yet they can get across via helicopter?

Yes and its legal

Many Canadian snowbirds are determined to head south this winter despite the COVID-19 pandemic, but they face hurdles getting their vehicles across a closed U.S. land border. In response, several transport companies have come up with new ways to help snowbirds — and their cars — get across.

Oh, that makes more sense to me that it's Canadians trying to go south, I was confused that the Canadian authorities were tolerating it with Americans trying to go north (I took it as Americans were hopping a helicopter over the border and then proceeding to points north).

Between Carson City and Reno we surprisingly have a solid medical infrastructure (it takes care of things into Truckee, CA and whatnot). I know Renown has started to use its parking garage as a temporary hospital wing. I haven't heard much from Carson (their hospital is pretty large even by Vegas standards), but if local hospitals aren't sending patients out I think it is safe to assume that they are at or near capacity also. 

EDIT: And man I missed the right thread to post this in. It a mod can/would be kind enough to move this over to the CIVID thread that would be awesome. I must have had multiple tabs open and crossed the streams.

I vote that it should go in the Canada thread because “close enough” :p 

 

It's true. One of the Canadians here cussed me out when I said that the Nova Scotia coat of arms was just a rip off of Scotland.

Welp, my mom, who's my main caretaker, went in 5 days ago for an EKG (she had a mild heart attack 4 years) and got exposed to COVID by the nurse doing the EKG. Thankfully my girlfriend is back so we're holed up in the Guest House waiting for test results. No one has symptoms.

Korea just had the highest number of cases since March. Just anecdotally, it seems like people have stopped taking it seriously. I see crowded bars and restaurants, no masks. 

Cafes now have to go to takeout only. Restaurants have to close by 9 pm.

 

This is worrying because it's not tied to one big thing, it's a bunch of people not being careful. The spikes in March and the summer were linked to a stupid cult and right-wing nut jobs. This recent increase is just groups of friends hanging out without precautions.

I hope the nurse and your mom were wearing masks.

Banner (Churchill County, NV) put out a press release that they are now at 140% capacity. 

Just looking at comments on their post a bunch of people in Fallon are telling them to stop spreading fake fear and let press in to take pictures... I fucking hate people.

If one terrorist attack killed that many people tomorrow we would spend 5 trillion dollars on more wars in the Middle East:|

Terrorists are real. Can’t spend trillions fighting something that doesn’t exist.

I think people need to prepare that the 2 weeks after thanksgiving is going to be hell on earth as people go shopping thinking they didn’t get it at thanksgiving yet ignoring that it takes time before symptoms show.

 

I wish you all good luck. :s

After tomorrow, I'm planning to pretty much be a hermit until after New Year's.

Some trial participants only got a partial dose of AstraZeneca’s vaccine. Experts said the company’s spotty disclosures have eroded confidence.

 

They really need to re-do the Phase 3 trial.
